Calvert women know how the
aches and pains that often come
when the kidneys fail make life a
burden. Backache, hip pains, head-
aches, dizzy spells, distressing

should be checked in time . Doan's
Kidrtey Pills are for the kidneys
only. They attack kidney diseases
by striking at the cause. Here's
proof of their merit in a Calvert

of Blazing, Fiery Eczema
Seems Like the Skin Is on Fire.
There is a harrassing discomfort
caused by Eczema that almost be-
comes a torture. The itching is al-
most unbearable, and the skin seems
•n fire with the burning irritation.
A cure from local applications of
aalves and ointments is impossible,
because such treatment can only al-
lay the pain temporarily. The disease
can only be reached by going deep
down to its source.

Fresh Beef Travels
on a Rapid Schedule
Fresh beef for domestic mar-
kets goes from stockyards to
retail stores within a period of
about two weeks. Although
chilled, this meat is not frozen;
hence it cannot be stored for a
rise in price.
A steer is dressed usually
within twenty-four hours after
purchase by the packer. The
beef is held in a cooler at the
packing house, at a temperature
a little above freezing, for about
It is then loaded into a refrig- .
erator car where a similar tem-
perature is maintained, and is
in transit to market on an aver-
age of about six days.
- • x \ '*
Upon arrival at the branch
distributing house, it is unloaded
into a "cooler", and placed on
Swift & Company requires all
beef to be sold during the week
of arrival, and the average of
sales is within five days.
Any delay along the above
journey means deterioration in
the meat and loss to the packer.
