Peruna as It was beneficial In
restoring my health when I was
all run down from overwork and
nervons worry and was unable to
take up my regular work. A
friend recommended Peruna and
said he waa sure that It would
restore my strength. I soon found
that I waa getting better and In
a little over two months 1 was
able to resume my duties with
renewed vigor and strength. It
certainly 1b a wonderful medicine
to vitalize the system.''

These newspaper quotations
represent live cattle prices in
Chicago on December 30th, 1918.
The list shows price ranges
on nine general classified groups
with a spread of $13.85 per cwt
—the lowest at $6.50 and the
highest at $20.35.
Why this variation in price?
Because the meat from differ-
ent animals varies greatly in
quality and weight.
Although the quotations
shown are in nine divisions,
Swift & Company grades cattle
into 34 general classes, and each
class into a variety of weights
As a result of these differences in
cattle prices, (due to differences in
weights and meat qualities), there is a
range of 15 cents in Swift & Com-
pany’s selling prices of beef car-
These facts explain:
1— Why retail prices vary in
2— Why it would be difficult to
regulate prices of cattle or
3— Why it requires experts to
judge cattle and to sell meat,
so as to yield the profit of
only a fraction of a cent a
pound—a profit too small to

other Russell amendment, which has
been three times adopted to the con

in the house last week by Represen-
tativ Duffy. Section 12-A provides

school districts in which they are col-

bers. Among these is one by Repre-
sentative L. W. Cheatham, Creek
county, which provides a comprehen-
