The most important talk of the meeting was made by Oeorce C. Bow man of the .Seymour Packing com pany. ISowman described the aim of the company as being to conserve the supply, eliminate waste, thereby ren clerins a real service to the public, both producer and consumer at a rea Konnble m.ii'jin on the investment and effort eNUended.

There Is a general impression," said Bowman, "that eggs are pur chased at a. low price during the heavy productive season and placed in cold storage so that the public can be robbed during the season of scarc ity. It is true that there are some speculators in many lines of business but I feel safe in saying that there are less than five speculators to 100 legitimate dealers in the egg and poul- try industry- Our company never speculates. uur ousmess consists ui receiving eggs and poultry from the farmer or country merchant, paying them the highest market price, and preparing these for market." KsUmate of Production. The production of eggs and poultry in this country can only be estimated. Bowman stated. Good authorities place the production of eggs in the United States at about 100.000.000 cases per annum, or about 3.000,000, 000 dozens, which at present market value would represent somewhere near a billion and a quarter dollars. Bowman stated that family dis bursements for poultry and eggs are equal to or greater than expenditures for flour. A great deal of the egg and poultry supply is going abroad. In 1918 Cuba alone purchased 218,000 cases of eggs. Before the wnr Great Britain, Bow man stated, depended largely on Aus tria and Russia for her egg supply, and now with that supply eliminated the nation must turn to the United States and Canada for this product. The British government has reserved storage space in Chicago for 250,000 cases of eegs for Inter shipment. Large quantities are being exported daily. Storage Chickens Discussed. Bowman was a detailed description the methods used in preparing chickens for storage and shipment. Scalding injures the product. That was the old method. Live poultry re ceived by the modern packer is weighed, sorted into grades, light and heavy, broilers, roosters. They are placed in feeding batteries after being sorted. They are not killed until the craws are empty. Here they are prop-J eriy bled, dry picked, inspected to see if properly dressed, and then sent to a cooling room in order to remove all animal heat. They are then wrapped in parchment paper and packed into boxes containing a dozen of uniform size and quality. They are then ready for the market and can either be shipped in refrigerator cars or placed in the freezer and frozen solid in forty-eight hours. It was a surprise to learn that poultry is not drawn. Government tests are decidedly in favor of undrawn poultry. Bowman predicts that present high prices will continue at least thruout this v ear. COKE FOR SOLDIERS State House Kmployes Served Free Ir.nka This Afternoon. State house employes raised a fund of $50 thia morning in an hour when a campaign was started for a coca cola fund for the soldiers. Girls in the office of L. J. Pettijohn, secretary of state, launched the campaign and after a canvnss of the offices stated they had buen denied subscriptions by jxist two employes. The wholesalers were told of the campaign lor a coke fund for the fiwhting men. They promptly sub scribed $10 and also pave a special rate for bottled drinks. This after noon the girls in charge of the recep tion lined up to greet the soldiers. If the supply of drinks does not meet de mands. it will be only because there were not sufficient funds for the en tertainment. "I heard one of the boys say they were just itching for the time when they could get something to drink be sides lemonade and watery, punch," said one of the girls. "They waited cokes, he told me. That gave us an idea and we thought we would do just a wee bit toward the entertainment by trying to supply as much of the demand as possible." This afternoon tubs containing the bottled coke were lined up in conspicu ous places at the state house. And the girls stayed right on the job until every bottle was gone. Then they almost wept because their drink fund was so small. DIDN'T LIKE HER FOLKS I Mrs. Sadie Daugherty Hays Husband t Abused Step-Children. j Alleging that he had contributed only $2 toward her support within the j last two years, Mrs. Sadie Daugherty i today filed a petition in te office of. the district court asking a divorce ! from Leander Daugherty, on the I grounds of extreme cruelty and neg- lect. The wife declares that shortly after their marriage in August, 1901. ' while they were living on a farm in j Decatur county, her husband began to abuse her two children by a former marriage, and made life so miserable for them that they were both com pelled to leave home. She declares Daugherty has a complaining, nagging disposition: that he is continually growling and complaining about her folks, whom he will not allow her to visit and that when her two brothers 'were married he would not allow her to attend their weddings. When they moved to Enid. Okla.. in the fall of 1915. she says, Daugherty told her he did not want to live with her and for her to go to Topeka- and live with her son. Allie McManus. She. says she arrived in Topeka with only $5 and that her husband has sent her only $2 since. Her son enlisted In the army in December. 1917. she says, since which time she has been visiting and living with relatives. She wants a divorce, share of the property and I the restoration of her' former name, ! Sadie McManus. HERE IS ONE THING THAT IS ABSOLUTELY IMPOSSIBLE Rheumatism Has Never Been Cured by Liniments or Lotions, and Never Will Be. You never knew of Rheumatism that most painful source of suffering being cured by liniments, lotions or other external applications. And you will never see anything but temporary relief afforded by such makeshifts. But why be satisfied with tempor ary relief from the pangs of pain which are sure to return with In creased severity, when there is per manent relief within jour reach Sci ence has proven that Rheumatism is a disordered condition of the blood. How then, can satisfactory results be ex- HE RAPS OFFICERS Captain MacLean Tells How They Handicapped Men. Bank Favoritism Was Practiced on Many Occasions. OFTEN NEAR BREAKING POINT Blackhand Letters Written on Boat Coming Home. Allen Criticism Kept Battery Out of Germany. "The bravery, pep and obedience of the Kansas boys in the 130th field ar tillery won us laurels despite their misfortune in commanding officers." Thus did Capt. W. P. MacLean, com mander of Battery A, sum up the ex periences of the Topeka and Kansas boys on the battlefields of France. Captain MacLean was found at his home at 903 Clay street this morning after finishing the first breakfast he has eaten at home for two years. ' Capt. YV. P. Maclean. Then, briefly Captain MacLean out lined the troubles of the enlisted men of the 130th field artillery, disclosing a condition of affairs and favoring of untrained officers with martinet tendencies equal in lowering the morale of men to the barrage of the enemy. He told of a jnan put in charge of the battery at one time who was later adjudged insane. He told of another man in command who. Captain MaeLean declared, had been quoted as saying: "I'd rather lose ten men than one horse." "Think of men going into battle and forced to respect a man who they knew had made such a remark," said Captain MacLean. Wrote ISIncklmnri letters. On the homeward trip on the boat the nerve racked, homesick men near ly reached the limit of their endur ance, according to Captain MacLean. In fact, he stated, that the command ing officer of the command received several "biaek hand" letters from the disgusted boys, fo helpless for relief or aid on account of the strict mili tary discipline and the censorship maintained after the armistice was signed. Here, Captain MasLean told the story of a farmer lad from Lawrence named McPherson. On the ocean trip the lad was detailed to carry sand wiches to a French war bride who was sick. "The boy didn't know a word of French and the girl not a word of English," said Captain MacLean. "She was sick and mad. When her hus band went to the stateroom she told him she had been insulted. "The matter was reported and the lad was taken before the commander. Before his trial or before his side of the case was heard, the commander called the boy a 'dog and a 'disgrace' and ordered him taken before a sum mary court. In court the charges were found to be absolutely ground less. The girl admitted sue didn't know a word of English and the boy knew no French, yet she declared he had asked her for a kiss. The lad was turned loose. Yet he had been forced to endure those remarks from his superior officer and nothing in the way of punishment could be much worse." Officers Got the Hest. Captain MacLean also described the long hikes thru the mud with the en listed men carrying heavy packs on their backs, tired almost to fainting in many cases. The commanding officer preceded the marching troops in a big (far, picked out the best billet in the town selected for a camp and then "bawled" out the men for their ap pearance when they finally dragged themselves into the French villages. Such experiences were the lot of the Kansas hoys most of the time, accord ins: to Captain MacLean. and that's why he says "The Kansas boys did credit to themselves despite their of ficers." Captain MacLean declared that the commanding officers by the score who had charge of the 130th field artillery were "brigade headquarters favorites. who had no experience in dealing with men and with one or two exceptions cared nothing for their commands ex cepting to use Ihem as a stepping stone for personal ambitions. However. In one or two instances the commanding 1 pected from any treatment that does not reach the blood, the seat or the trouble, and rid the system of the cause of the disease? S. S.

Swift Specific Co.. 250 Swift Laboratory, Atlanta, Ga. Adv. Pi . ' officers were men who took an Interest in looking after the enlisted person nel, the captain stated. Not an officer who left Topeka with Battery A was with the battery thru it all. Changes of officers, causing unrest among the men. were being or dered constantly, he declared. Cap tain MacLean was in charge of two or three different companies and bat talions and at his own request was given command of the battery on its trip home from Camp Upton. Almost Went Into Germany. The 'charges made by Governor Henry Allen resulting in an investiga tion caused the rturn of the 35th di vision to America, according to the captain. The battery was all packed and ready for a march into Germany when the Kansas' governor began to stir things up and orders were changed and the 35th division was sent home. "Governor Allen probably made a mistake in criticising the strictly mili tary movements of the troops as that is something he couldn't understand," said Captain MacLean. "But many of his charges were timely and well founded." Captain MacLean intends to obtain a discharge and resume his residence in Topeka. OCEAN FLIGHT (Continued from I'nge One.) When the planes were fully a mile away, the even-toned roar of their huge motors assured otficers that they were working perfectly. The escort ing scout planes turned back about three miles from Roi'kaway and the three transatlantic flyers sped away on their great adventure. Kscort of Small Planes. Five small seaplanes circled about as the huge air boats roared into the first jump of their daring trip. A dir igible also was in the air. These six craft were expected to form an escort for the journey as far as Montauk Point, where the trail leads from Long Island. The sky was grey and there was a mist over the water before the places started, but r. west wind made start ling conditions favorable. Reports from , the New England and Nova Sco tia coast also made it desirable to start the flight today. Naval officers said it was expected to make the flight from here to Hali fax in seven and a half hours. Change In One Crew. A last minute change was made In the crew of the NC-4. Chief Special Mechanic E. H. Howard having his hand cut off by a propeller blade. His place was taken by Chief Mechanic's Mate Rhodes. The "flagship" of the squadron was the NC-3, carrying Commander Tow ers. The NC-4 was in charge of Lieut. Commander Read and the NC-1 of Lieut. Commander Bellinger. Personnel of Crews. The crews were: NC-3 Commander H. C. Richard son, Lieut. D. H. McCullough, Lieut. Commander R. A. Lavender, Machinist L. R. Moore and Lieut. B. Rhodes. NC-4 Lieut. E. F. intone, Lieut. W. Hinton. Ensign H. C. Rood. Chief Me chanic's Mate Rhodes and Lieut. J. L. Breese. NC-1 Lieut. Commander M. A. Mitchcr. Lieut. T. L. Burin. Lieut. H. Saden water. Chief Machinist's Mate C. J. Kesler and Machinist R. Chris tensen. - (NC stands for "Navy-Curtiss," the make of the big machines). There was only a small crowd to witness the start. A few relatives of the crews, some naval officers and en listed men and group "of newspaper correspondents saw the machines take the air. There was no cheering. Two women standing close to the water's edge wept as the propellers whirred. They were the wives of men on one of the planes. The machines circled about the bay to get height and squadron formation. Then, with the NC-3 leading the way. they headed northeast and roared out of sight. A submarine chaser churned the water in hot pursuit with the in tention of keeping them in view a short while. The aviators wore leather clothing, the dress of the naval flyers. The exact moment of the start was 9:9 a- m. It was announced that they would follow the coast on the trip to Hali fax. The dista nee is 540 nautical miles. y Coast Guards Sight Planes. New York, May 8. First reports from the three navy transatlantic fly ers, en route to Halifax, came from the coast guard station at Long Beacn, Long Island, where the lifeguards ob served the seaplanes flying in close formation at an altitude of about 500 feet. Bridge of Boats Ready. Aboard U. S. S. Prairie, Trepassey Bay, N. F., May 8. The American bridge of boats from Newfoundland to the Azores for protection of the NC-1. NC-3 and NC-4 on their transatlantic flight will be ready by Saturday, ac cording to prospects today. Lieutenant Pearce of "the British navy visited the American squadron and remarked that Pilots Hay n ham and Hawker of the British planes near St. Johns will probably not attempt a start for some time. ASKS COURT PROTECTION Mrs. Katharine Arttle Makes Counter Charges Against Husband. A 'restraining order to enjoin her husband from molesting her was is sued in the district court Wednesday afternoon on the motion of Mrs. Katherine Arttle, 1024 North Maria son street. A few days ago her husband, Clemens Arttle, filed a suit for divorce charging that his wife had threatened to kill him, that she neglected her home, incurred large bills that he could not pay and cursed and abused him. Mrs. Arttle in her motion declared that her husband had put her out In the street at midnight, that he had often threatened to kiil her and had repeatedly assaulted, beaten and kick ed her. She said he had procured the assistance of Mr. and Mrs. Valentine Bierwerth, 53.6 East S.'i-dovi. to cheat and defraud her of her household goods by inducing her, against her will, to sign an instrument which she could not read. They had made threats to take the furniture out of her house, she says. FILM NOT CENSORED That Is Cliartre Made Against Man- A complaint has been made In the court of Topeka by L.: U.

Jordan Insurance Service, phone 37. Adv. WELCOME NOTES (Continued from rage One.) The last train had unloaded and the crowd around the depot was be ginning to thin out. Near the edge of the roped-off space on the north side a member of Battery A and a girl stood apart. ,Not a word was being spoken; they were just standing look ing at each other. It was one of those moments of heavenly happiness when the tongue becomes dumb, words fail and the eyes speak for the soul, as only the eyes of lovers can speak. A call for Dick Newman went out from the section where relatives and returned heroes were bein; brought together. Dick Newman is a State Journal man in Battery A. Paul Mor gan, another State Journal man. smiled his way thru the crowd, meet ing old friends on every side. Then there was Ralph Davis and Sergt. Maj. San Jarrell, both former State Journal men. Two pretty Lawrence girls were so enthused over meeting two of their boy friends as the train pulled thru the university city that they stayed right on the train and rode with the boys to Topeka. Here, they had the time of their young lives at the dance at the, Elks club. One section didn't stop at the Union Pacific station. The train pulled across Kansas avenue and way down to- the yards. And. if you think hob bleskirts are any impediment on speed you should have seen the excellent time made by Topeka girls in follow ing that train into the yards. As the train pulled in a hi an with a babe in his arms saw his brother in the car window. Running alongside the car the man held the babe high and the soldier boy played with the kid while the train was in motion. A tall, husky artilleryman was plow ing thru the crowd to he street car track, his right arm around his moth er and the left around his sister, the father was doing a rear guard maneu ver, stepping on the heels of all of them in an effort to hear everything that was said. "That old girl out there in the bay sure looked good to me," was the remark he made as they passed out of hearing, - "Mother," a man's voice called huskily. "My boy, my baby boy," a woman sobbed in a panicky voice. They rushed into each other's arms. Their conversation, tho, was limited to those first remarks repeated over and over. But it was enough. Three other soldiers stood close by. Kvident ly they were expecting no relatives in Topeka. They stood and looked on with amused, happy, satisfied smiles on their faces. "I've got you now and I'm never going to let you go again,' the mother sobbed, her face wreathed in smiles but with tears streaming from her eyes. "That's the stuff," said one of the soldiers near by, as he patted the happy mother on the shoul der, "you've got him now and don't let him get away." "Boy howdy," said the soldier, "I don't want away. "Aren't you proud of those two go'.d stripes." a girl murmured softly to her soldier sweetheart. "Yes, hon," he answered, "but there is one more stripe I will be a lot gladder to get. It isn't gold either. It s a little old red chevron. You wear it right up here." And he pointed to the upper part of his left arm. "I won't begin to breath easy until I get it either." "John, wasn't there a sing'e French girl well, that you sort of liked pretty well, you know," said a girl, as she looked up at her sweetheart, half sus picious jealousy mingled with a love unquestioned in her eyes. He turned and looked at her seriously. "No, babe, there wasn't a soldier In this man's army ever fell for any of those French dames. Say, they just didn't have class enough for a bunch of buddies like us. And listen to me. Sweet, there never was and never will be another girl like you. Compre?" From her smile she evidently did. It's a great old story when you tell it right and that boy was good. It has been long time since many soldiers wearing the crossed gun signia f the artillery have been seen on the streets of Topeka. Today the artillery insigne was out in full force. It sure looks mighty fine to see the little collar buttons with the number '130' on them." said a man on the streets this morning. "I don't know what to do in this place," said a soldier easing: his way thru the mob at the station. "If they were all soldiers you could say. 'Gang; way there. Hot stuff comiriV But they are mostly women. I guess you just have to knock m down."

A soldier spread himself about Capper and Allen. ' "I suppose now we will have to listen to a lot more hot stuff from those politicians." He continued to express his views to the amusement of his comrades who smiled in happy knowledge. "I would like to see that Capper guy just once." "Well, look him over," said his buddy, "that's him right across the aisle." Topeka clothing stores did a big business this morning. A great rrany of the Topeka boys who expect to get into "civies" by Sunday decided to stock up now so that they will be able to lay aside the O. D. the minute they get their discharges. Silk shirts and silk socks were the favorites. "Yeah. I'm goin' to work pretty poon , when I pet out," a Topeka boy told his friends today. "But when I get back from Kunston I have a girl at Holton and one at Kansas City that I will have to see before I can settle down to labor again."
