Washington housewives will have to pay more for their breakfasts of ham and eggs during the next week, according: to the fair price list Is sued yesterday by the local Food ?Administration. Cheese also went but butter and lard gave the .Housekeeper some relief when they I* stopped climbing- and both dropped.

Cold storage eggs also went up one cent, reach ing a mark of 56 cents per dozen. Whole standard hams showed ffn in crease over last week's price when they were quoted at 38 to 40 cents per pound. Last week's price was 36 to 3S. The price of American whole milk cheese shows the big gest increase, jumping two cents per pound. Last week the price was 34 to 39 cents per pound, while this week it is 35 to 41 cents. In half pound lots, the cheese jumped one cent, to 31 cents. Bitter Falls. The most surprising development of the week was the reduction In the price of butter. Best creamery but ter. quoted last week at 64 to 69 cents per pound, came down to 64 to cents per pound. This, while It is only a decrease of one cent in the Maximum price, is taken by most people as indicating the stopping of the general rise in prices Officials here had practically become resigned to an advance as high as 31 per pound when the wholesale price fell from 63 to 63 cents per pound. Administration officials declared yesterday that this was probably due to the strict inves tigation of storage which Is being made throughout the country. Lard also showed a decrease of one cent a pound, being quoted at 31 to 35 cents. To Display Prlro*. Hope that the long delayed plan to regulate the prices of meat was voiced *?y officials yesterday. The black boards which are to be displayed in the butcher shops and upon which the day's prices are to be shown, will be ready for distribution the latter part of the week, it was declare 1 yes terday. It has taken about six months to formulate the plans and it Is hoped that it will be of material advantage to the purchaser. It is also hoped that it will tend to curb the practice of some Washington butchers to sell goat meat as lamb and charge lamb prices for it. One case of this kind is before the F K)d Administration now and it is expected that definite action will be taken against the offender before the end of the week. Another food dealer has been hallea before the administration charged with wasting food. In view of the recent request of the National Food Administration for strict conservation it is probable that severe punishment will be meted out in this case. Three j other dealers are to be heard by the administration on charges of violating ttwrice quotations on|the fair price I lUi I I Suitable Sh Fcnanist. short-vamM Faitheist, half-soule^ Fo'hriRtian Scientist, Fo-iventors. patent L, Fori minals, copper-t vMfeildren. dressed-k $o: a *>*-bodies, pump iKh-heeled. lather. wed. ?

Why is man and woman, half the time, feeling nervous, despon dent, worried; some days head achy, dull and unstrung; some days really incapacitated by ill ce.SE. If we all would practicc the drinking of phosphated hot water before breakfast, what a gratify ing change would take place. In stead of thousands of half-sick, anaemic-looking souls with pasty, muddy complexions we should see crowds of happy, healthy, rosy cheeked people everywhere. The reason is that the human system does not rid itself each day of all the waste it accumulates under our present mode of living. For every ounce of food and drink taken into the system nearly an ounce of waste material must be carried out, else it ferments and forms ptomaine-like poisons in the bowels which are absorbed, into the blood.
