DEFRAUDING THE PEOPLE.
The pure food commissioner of Idaho makes a complaint about some ol
the adulterants used in various articles     lor human consumption,  that
they     are practically deadly poison.
Out of forty-eight samples of so-called French pens he did not find a single one pure, the cans all containing
Irom     nineteen to eighty  milligrams
of copper salts, almost enough (I to
kill a man.   Of thc spices examined,
seventy per cent,   were    adulterated
with starch, flour, cocoanut   shells,
peanut shells, almond pits and ceriul
products    colored     with dyes.      Oi
course these last are not  poisonou
but they arc not spices and go   to
prove that Ihe demand for cheapness
is met by unscrupulous manufacturers
by adulteration. ' There is a    limit
tn all things and when a manufacturer finds that by putting out   honest
goods he cannot  sompefc wilh    the
cheap and  nasty,  there   is n   great
temptation    In follow in thc    same
line.    In Canada the Dominion government periodically issues  bulletins
nf thc findings nf the official analyist
giving lists of various articles   purchased;     the   city where they were
bought, tlie makers' names and   thc
result of the examination.   A couple
nf years agn there was one   issued,
showing that, nut nl many samples ol
preserves and jellies lcsled very lew
were pure.   In Idaho the   same   condition obtains, for the [nod commissioner says that "a large portion oi
llie    jams    and     jellies were rank
frauds."    It seems In us Hint    the
most efficient method of dealing with
this sort nf fraud un the pirlblic
not only to prosecute the maker   ol
the adulterated fond, but fur the gov
eminent to publish in the newspapers
where the particular purchases were
made, the results of analysis ol food
products.   This would effect a rapid
cure, as no manufacturer would dare
lo lace     such an exposure, for  the
public, being warned, would not purchase his goods and he would speedily he put out. of    business or    turn
honest, by emnpuks nn.
There is one article nt consumption
(not a fund product, however) for
which the excuse of competition cannot. Ire offorcil ns a reason fur its adulteration. This is loal oil. Ostensibly to enable the people of Canada
to secure coal oil cheaper, the duty
was removed—but the price was not
reduced, and what: is more, ^very now
and then we hear complaints of the
miserable quality of Hie nil sold. It,
is not the merchants' fault. They
have to buy (ruin lhc agents nf the
monster monopoly mid the only pos-
s-ilrle remedy sceins In be some attempt by the government tn regulate
lxit.ii quality and price. Ol cniirsc,
the poor holder ol Standard Oil must
have his miserable fifty per c.iit, gi-
videml, so the public must not complain If the water is poured into the
oil instead of the slock. Seriously
speaking, however, the people ol
Canada should mil he vielimircd in
this way and they have aright to
look to the government to protect
them iu conditions where, because of
a monopoly, there is nut the slightest chance    of competition bringing

TIPPLER TO PAY HIGH RATE.
Total abstainci- in thc tnatlcr oi
spirituous iiquors are in the near
future to be given specially low rates
by the leading life insurance coin-
panics in the Uiiilod Stales, according to the New York Herald. As is
well known, the insurance companies
never issue policies to iinmod.-'ate
drinkers, where.the circumstances arc
known, but lor many years authorities have claimed that the average
plan ol Iiic was longer among persons who werc total abstainers, but
the underwriters haic never taken
any account oi the mailer..
Statistics running over a period
nf several years have brought the authorities to the conclusion that total abstainers as a class live longer
by from 20 to 25 per cent, than the
immoderate drinkers as a class.
There are a number of details lo
work out belore thc policies in con
teinplntion are actually oil-red to
the public. One ol -these is lhc danger that the mail who is a total gb-
sliiiruT when he lakes out the policy
may become a moderate, or perhai s
immoderate drinker in the future,
which would upset the figures ol the
company i'' this should happen to
many of the holders of such policies.
It is believed, however, that this
problem can > be solved in several
ways. One ol these is that the application for the policy should con
tain a warranty that lhc applieaul
would never thereafter become a
drinker "I alcoholic liquors, tho client being, it they broke the wn -
ranty, tlic policy would be void.
The companies also have ilis.ussinl
a plan ami also a provision trhat is a
man should become a drunkard, lie
amount payable under the policy
should Ire such a sum as thc ni_.qt.nl
of premiums paid would have r,i.r
I'lirisi.l ii the man had not been a total abstainer.
A short lime ago a traveler entered a restaurant in Dublin lo partake oi lunch, lie look a seal at ihc
table, ami opposite him sat two
young irishmen, lu the centre a'.
the table stood a nicely arranged
glass of celery, anil al the end of birr
meal be helped himself freely to it,
when he ooticctl one of the youths opposite looking al him suspiciously;
and overheard him whisper to his
male, "Look. iWnikc, hc-s allher eating  lhc  flowers.''—Loudon  Til  Uiii.
Visitors to -olor'nno next summer
will have an opportunity to ride lo
Pikes Peak iu electric cars, contracts
having been made for changing the
cog road equipment from steam to
olcclrlcliy. Eneh passenger conch
will he supplied with a gasoline motor, which will generate enough power to propel the ear. The change will
necessitate rut expenditure of about
$200,000.

—Cleveland Leader.
THE BRIDE'S TOILET.
"They do some queer tilings  down
in Missouri,"     said    County Clerk
Wall Davson, who is just back irom
Joe Folk s state:
"I was iu Lamar tlie other week
and saw a curious procession come
into town.
"It did not attract much attention until after it drew up at the
east side al thc square. Then something began to happen.
"There werc two buggies. In thc
Iirst one sat a comely looking young
woman and a short, stout, determined looking young man. In the rear
buggy was an elderly lady.
"When the procession slopped the
young lellow lcapod out and tied his
horse, Then he put up the curtains
oi his buggy and hung the lap robe
over the front.
'People began to rubber. Presently a bare arm reached out from an
opening in tlic improvised boudoir
and took from the walling young
man a bundle ol clothing.
"It wns evident that the young
woman inside was changing her apparel and making a new toilet. The
young man took a very deep interest
in the proceedings. The bare arm
kept reaching out from between the
curtains and taking irom him various articles ol wearing apparel that
he lished out ol a 'battered valise.
"Every little while he would take
a squint through the little glass win-
Sow in the back of the buggy cut-
lain and show his approval ol the
progress made by his widespread
grin.
a few minutes the young co-'
man emerged from 'the seclusion oi
her boudoir with Iter, toilet almost
completed. The only thing lacking
was buttoning up.
"Thc elderly woman, evidently her
nollicr, came promptly to her rescue. The younger woman stood out
like a hall-roblArd Venus while her
mother wrestled with tlie stubborn
I'nslcucrs and made the backward
billions articulate with the holes.
"The young man viewed the progress of events with evident satisfaction, and when the last hook was
iu place the three iiirinc.1 in close
tinier and marched into tlic recorder js ollice fort a marriage license.
'■'The finishing touches were put
ou the costume by the mother, a
squire was summoned and iu the
presence ol an admiring populace that
crowded thc room they were married.
The young man wore a hig white
cow-boy hat and shoes that werc as
innocent ol polish as n newborn baby
of clothes. 1 le had on a waistcoat,
bul it was unbuttoned. The local
paper wrote up thc wedding] con
chiding with this:
" 'Tlicy were Wesley Nails, ol Sati-
lctm, nml Birdie Stephens, ol the
same plncc. They lelt the town happy antl oblivious. Here's luck to
theni. May the two Nails nourish
ami wax lat antl rurally become
whole keg ol Nails.' "— New York

phalret for thc characters now employed in Ihe written language . ol
that country is regarded by Prince
Fiisliiini, who is in St. Louis, as
very probable. A. Sato, master ol
tllc Prince's household, speaking for
the Prince, said that a commission
composed of members of the Roman
Character Society is making an   in-
calculated combination secured an op- ^ligation under the sanction ofthe
,     Imperial  Government,    with a view
cning hy passing to Morriaon,    who'      .^^   -^ |() .^^    ,.c
Immediately returned him llie   ball, 'chnngi
and Ijcahy scored     beautifully, mak'
ing it If to 0, for the home team.  A
spectacular feature not on tho
was a double cart-wheel turnover
combination between Adam und
O'llrien, after thc style of Japanese
tumbling and which the crowd hailed
with rapturous applause. At half
time it was Ladysmith fi, Nanainio
0.
There was a bit of a wait whilo
an attempt was made to clear away
the crowd of spectators at the door,
who found it difficult to get a place
to sec and werc only frightened away
when the star vocalist of the local
club threatened to sing "Always in
the way,'" to a tin wiiisliV' act-im-
paniinent.
When play was rcs'unired A. Stewart broke the ice (or Nanaimo w_h
i goal from the field. McMillan got
a chance soon after anil improved it
by another goal for Ladysmitli. Adam followed this up by picking tiie
hall up from a scrum under the net
and scoring again. Nanaimo relieved well anil were doing goorl combination in spots, but Adam, Leahy ami
McMillan were making a wonderful
attack, .ably backed up by the long
feeding shots by Eno, while Morrison
was outdoing himself at checking. McMillan eventually scored again, Then
Sage added one point from a free
throw for Nanaimo, lhc only one
taken in this way during tne game.
Stewart,  from a nice
"There is little doubt," he    said,
lhat the change will be made. The
bills | Emperor, who is a cousin of   Prince
Fushiini,   regards    the    pl-ii    with
much    lavor     and  in official circles
generally  the   substitution  is advocated.   The adoption of Roman char
acters would rob Japan's literature
of much of ils sweetness and beauty
hut the proposed change is regarded
with  favor because il  means    progress.     English    is morc generally
spoken  iu  Japan than  tlie    average
pcrso'i in this country realizes,   and
it is taught in our schools.      While
our language will lose much in sweet
lies., and senlrinienl, it will gain    a
great deal commercially."
