Work of the Housewives' League.
The Housewives' league is building
up a great organization of Intelligent
buyers with the intention to equalize
tho price paid by the housewife, with
the cost of foo?! from the farm or mill,
and to perfect th? pure-food propa
ganda and improve upon the present
clumsy pure-food liws-for verify the
housewife ls the court of final appeal,
and what she says "goes."
A dozen committees from as many
different organizations might call on
a grocer and protest against his sell
ing "oxide of copper peas," or "for
maldehyqde milk,'* Out if uninformed
housewives kept calling for this stuff.
Hans Schmidt would continue to sell
lt, but let a half dozen of Herr
Schmidt's housewife customers mod
estly suggest that lr he did not handle
pu:e food they would transfer their
patronage to one who did. Herr
Schmidt would obey with alacrity.
He would search the utmost marts of
trade for food that would meet the
apuroval ot his housewife customers
and shun with fear and trembling
anything that bore the stamp of
doubt. The Intelligent buyer H
through the Housewives' League are
miking honest grocers, and through
the grocers this principle ls filtering
back to the Jobbing houses, and the
Jobber is handing lt back to the man

league ls making intelligent buyers,

being now about 30 years of age. He
