In referring to the manner lit which
food articles are adulterated the Sa?
vannah Morning News of a recent date
contains the following paragraph:
The Pennsylvania department of
agriculture has recently examined a
number of samples of ?'ground cur
fee" and "ground coffee com?
pounds," purchased at grocery
stores. One sample was found to be
composed of "bran, crocked wheat,
and a little caramel, chiefly wheat
bran sweetened and roasted;" an?
other consisted wholly of "roasted
barley;" a third was composed of
"peas, 6? per cent., grains, 20 per
cent., and chickory about 2 per
cent." "Of all the samples exam?
ined." says the Philadelphia Press,
and the number of them was large,
"but four were found to be com?
posed of pure coffee, and of these
three were pronounced to be of
'very inferior quality.' " The price
at which the so-called coffee was
sold. howeVer. ranged from 10 to
40 cents a pound. Is this the way
the people are paying for the war
between the two big trusts which
control the parched coffee mar
To a large extent the adulteration of
coffee is by sufferance of the consum?
ers, for this Is one article that may be
secured practically pure, unless one be
too indolent to take a little trouble. If
the berries be purchased in the green
state a tyro in household affairs can
tell whether or not pure coffee is being
liought. fur with all their cleverness
the adulterators have not yet invent?
ed a grain that will deceive the eye
and nose of a person who is acquaint?
ed with real coffee. The trouble is
that the great bulk of this article is
purchased in a "ground" state in order
' to save the trouble of roasting and
grinding. In all these various opera?
tions the wholesale dealers have an op?
portunity to get in adulterations, so
that it is difficult to imagine what one
is drinking when he takes up a cup of
the fluid which is called coffee. To ojie
who has drunk this real "nectar of the
gods" no amount of trouble ran be
considered too great in order to secure
the article without adulteration or
We fear that some of our esteemed
contemporaries are banking too much
on the disheartening news that the
..7. Spanish prisoners will carry hack to
Cuba. As matter of fact, it seems thai
the men who "capitulated" at Santiago
will have just about enough foundation
to stuff their gullible countrymen on
stories of how they forced the Atnerl
cjfean pigs to pay their way home for
\ ;years to come. In arguing with a
. Spaniard the only logic it is safe to
count upon is thai contained in a well
aimed bullet or shell. Almost any one
?;-will acknowledge the force If not th?
justice of such an argument.
It is said that the Madrid newspapers
|gare appearing with bank columns
i? .Where the censor forbade the publloa
-?/tlon of articles. If one may Judge by
?.;;lhe "pieces" that have been copied by
" the American papers from the Spanish
press the blank columns are an Im?
provement over the old style.
In saying that Spain must seek peace
Premier Sagasta remarked; "it would
be different if we had a navy." So far j
as one may judge from the events of
the pas; few months it looks as if a
Spanish navy makes very little differ?
We infer from Admiral Sampson's
report that it will be the regret of his
life that he was not present to help
