Accused admitted the soft impeachment    but    said,  so  far as  could   be

at one time, but was satisfied with his
explanation.    Al?o that it was a com-

been  in  it  there  for  two  years.    All
he made out of it was the 25 cents for
the  empty  bottles.    He  had  a  store
on   Tenth   street   and   sold   groceries.
He knew If he sold beer there be would

as to the desperation witli which the'

against  the  faulty   methods  of   fruit 1

Mr. Llthg iw explains that a serious,

were shipped from Ontario on May 12 I
and arrived at Rotterdam about June

were Immediately forwarded to dlf-
ferenl points to fill orders. The balance were placed lu the importer's

thai tlnre was the slightest suspicion
of anything being amiss.   "Your commissioner was  requested to make an j
examination at the warehouse or the]
imhporter, and  bad    a   considerable';
number of boxes of his own selection 1
opened.    Many  were  round   to  be  In i
very bad condition, and unfit for con- !
sumption,    Samples were taken and '
placed in three tin canisters from fif- |
icon different boxes, one of which Is
forwarded to the department, and one
to the Canadian exporter, with a statement of tlie facts.
"The   letters   from   the   firm com-

Itegina, Aug. 13.���A difference of

had been decided that only bands-

At the meeting of the council, however, it was pointed out that there

on Labor Pay because Of their not

When Summer
Stops the Swing
Most of us can remember the school lesson in the
law of accumulated motion���momentum.
If you exert a pound of pressure against a man in
a swing, you'll start him moving slowly "to and
fro." If you continue to exert a pound of pres-
eure against him every time the swing makes a
trip, you'll soon have him going so high that he
almost turns the whole circle. If you stop pushing, the momentum will die out and the swing
come to rest at "dead centre."
Winning trade follows the same natural laws.
Advertisements are the force behind the swing of
public favor. Each new advertisement increases
the momentum. Finally, the accumulated force
of these numerous impulses swings indifference to
the buying point.
If you stop Advertising, you lose momentum.
The moral of which is:
Don't stop the business swing in Summer.
Keep adding the pounds of Advertising
