Thousands have found Peruna to be that remedy as did Miss Clara Lohr of 21 N. Gold St. Grand Rapids. Michigan. She writes a friend: "I don't need Peruna any more. I am all well after taking six bottles. I weighed ninety pounds before I started and was poor and weakly. I had such a cough and spitting all the time that I never expected to recover. My friends gave me up. I could eat nothing. Now I can eat and weigh 135 pounds. I most thankfully recommend Peruna to my friends." Miss letter is an inspiration, a message of hope to suffering women.

Swift & Company has frequently stated th that its profit on beef averages only of a cent a pound, and hence has practically no effect on the price. Comparison has been made by the Federal Trade Commission of this profit with the profit on coal, and it has pointed out that anthracite coal operators are content with a profit of 25 cents a ton, whereas the beef profit of of a cent a pound means a profit of $5.00 a ton. The comparison does not point out that anthracite coal at the seaboard is worth at wholesale about $7.00 a ton, whereas a ton of beef of fair quality is worth about $400.00 wholesale. To carry the comparison further, the 25 cent profit on coal is 3 per cent of the $7.00 value. The $5.00 profit on beef is only 1 per cent of the $400.00 value. one-fourone-four- th Free, a 8tt of Puckpt paper. name this Greatest Importance, If your eyes are showing any defects now is the time to see G.&C.

Sowdsr, The profit has little effect on price in either case, but has less effect on the price of beef than on the price of coal Coal may be stored in the open air indefinitely; beef must be kept in expensive coolers because it is highly perishable and must be refrigerated. Coal is handled by the carload or ton; beef is delivered to retailers by the pound or hundred weight. Methods of handling are vastly different. Coal is handled in open cars; beef must be shipped in refrigerator cars at an even temperature. Fairness to the public, fairness to Swift ft Company, fairness to the packing industry, demands that these indisputable facts be considered.
