two watches and other valuables were

A siioirr time ago, in opposition to
his parents wishes, John W. Johnson,
of Staunton, Va., a member of one of
the proudest families in theStitc, wooed
and won the band of Abbte Peters, aged
nineteen, a poor girl. When the wedding
tla was only a few weeks off he cruelly
wronged and deserted her. Her father,
furious at tho insult, had Johnson
arrested. The court last week tva
tenced him to two years in flic jienitcn
tiary. The girl tried to save her lover,
and nearly cried her eyes out. Her
people locked her up, but she managed
to get out. and saw the prisoner,
begging him to marry her. The Attorney-General
promised to secure a
pardon if the wedding was consum
mated. Under tho cinnim-tances the
Johnson family gladly acquiesced. The
ceremony was celebrated, and the pris
oner was released as soon as the papers
were made out.

by the Illinois Central Railroad Com
pany, so that his successor might obtain
a similar fair. This year the same
minister is preaching in Missouri at a
cuuntrv town. And the asent indorsed
his application, but no permit has been
issued. There is a mark on the com
pany's book agint him- A idiort time
ago an editor loaned an annual pa,
issued by the Illinois Central people, to
a clothier, who, in return for the favor,
presented the newspaper man with a
suit of ready-made clothing. An officer
of the company found it out, and re
voVed the pass. Years have gone by,
but that editor has never since rode on
an Illinois Central pass.

. ABOUT BOGUS BUTTER.
Report of the New Tork Senate Committee
on Food Adulteration.
Auiant.X.Y., March 22. Tho Senate
Committee on Public Health which has been
investigating the adulteration of food, re
ported Friday. They say they have discov
cted wholesale and alarming adulteration,
dangerous to tbe consumer and df preeiatias
the property In rural districts. The adul
teration of butter Is by tallow oik
bone oil and lard oil, found In
almost every town and city In the State and
In amount equals half the production of
natural butter. Tbo Imitation has been
so disguised, that It Is often only dis
coverable by chemical analysis. Out of
th'xty samples of butter purchased by the
committee in New York only ten were gen
uine. 'o labels to distinguish pure from
bogus butter are displayed as required by
the existing law. Boras butter L largely
purchased by saloons, boarding-houses and
serrmd-clas hotel. Foorer qualities ot
Iwgns butter sell for twenty to thirty cents
to laborinc men: better grades thirty or
forty cents The manufacturer's cost ranges
from twelve to eighteen cents-verro
foucen cents Several Xew York and
Brooklyn concerns manufacture over 3.000,-
rxw noiind each out of fats from the Vest,
from France and Ittlv. The bulk of tho
bogus butter U manufactured In the West
and sold in New York to the detriment of
the State's dairy InteresL Tbe dairy
farmers have been driven out of business.
The continent ks to the State Is esti
mated at S.7,000,000 to 510,000,000 yearly.
The committee estimate that 40,000,000
pounds of tbe product are sold annually In
tho State, and the ilircitiniate business Is
breaking up our export butter trade. Tho
effect of the deception In trade I deleterious
to buNiness moral. Butterine can be sold
at eighteen cents less than the natural but
ter. The committee quotes extensively from
the evidence to show the moral, commercial
ami sanitary effects of the adulteration. The
use of nitric and sulphuric acid in deo
dorizing adulterated butter L particularly
condemned. The committee recommends
the lolal prohibition af tcra given time of the
manufacture ami sale of all butter adtdtcra
Uons. The living cow. assert the eomrait
!kv cannot eomneto with the dead hog. The
committee also found 200.000 out of 500.000
quart of milk furnished In New York daily
In ls2 were water ami skim milk. They I
recommend the appointment of a State milk
Inspector, ami that this official be chosen to
enforce antl-adultcration laws, and be se
lected to represent tho dairy interest.
Accompanying the report was a bill,
prohibiting, under penalty of $200
or six months' imprisonment the I
sale of adulterated milk keeping
cows for production of milk In un
healthy condition, or diluting milk with
water. 1 1 provides that every manufacturer .
of butter shall brand his name and tbe,
