a subject that is of such vital import
ance to tlie people of this country
from a standpoint of health as well as
01 principle. A man wno buvs adul
terated food, believing it to be other
wise, is a victim of the man who
makes or sells such food, and thu man
who makes such food, or sells the
. same, docs cross miustice to his own
conscience, and practices a fraud upon
the palate and stomach of his victim
of misplaced confidence. He deceives
the public, brinjrs dishonor upon his

system o! counterfeiting that is not
yet condemned by the laws of the
land. More than "one-third of the

St. Lotis, Mo., March 2. The Su

opinion yesterday in the case of the
Julia building Association against the

came Ix-fore the Supreme Court on an
appeal from tlie judgment of tlie St
Louis Court of Antieals. The Dell
Telephone Company in erecting poles
on Mxtn street, opposite a drv goods
store owned by plaintiff, cut through
tue stone pavement and removed

wall of the cellar of the building.
This the Julia Ituilding Association
claimed would result in great injury.
The opinion, which is very lengthy, is
to the effect that telephone poles are w

the continuance of exchange business
in smaller places dependent uiion the

CuicAiio, March 2. In his sermon
at the First Baptist Church yesterday
the Rev. Sain Jones said: '"What a
a privilege it is to pray. Now, I want
all those who got down on tlieir
knees and prayed before they came to
this meeting to rise in their seals,"
About twenty persons arose in the
The evangelist luaned against the
pulpit and seemed to pisp for breath.
'You may be seated now," he said.
"Why, brethren, 1 could find more
prayerful Christians in Hong Kong,
China, than there are in this meeting
to-day. If you can't pray I want you
to take your carcasses out of here. I
don t want you to come here if vou
can t prav.
An aged man sitting on one of the
front pews leaped to his feet, and in a
faltering voice said: "Mr. Jones, 1
don t think it is necessary for a person
to get down on tlieir knees to prav. 1
consider myself a good Christian' and
I don t like to hear such talk.
"I was about to say the same thing."
exclaimed tho Rev. Mr. Scudder of
Plymouth church. "I prayed while
on my way to church. God does not
demand that a man shall get down on
ins knees before bis pravers are
"Any more exculpatory remarks?"
growled the evangelist.
Dr. Scudder Thev aro not exculpa
A man with an ear trumpet arose
and punctuated his remarks with vig-
3iis pounding on the rostrum. "Jr
lies, he began, "I did not have
time to get down on niv knees and
pray for this meeting. 1 havo spent
nearly tne entire day reading the Uiht
to a gambler and a drunkard, and I
think I am entitled to respect here."
Othermen and several women liegan
to stand up in various sections of the
church, but a few explanatory remarks
served to still the tempest, and the re
vivalist was permitted to finish bis
sermon without further interruption.
In conclusion, he said : ''Let us take
the lesson in the text to our homes and
get some good out of it.
