AN IMPORTANT DECISION BY
THE UNITED STATES COMMISSIONER
ON BLEACHING FLOUR.
Dr. Wiley the United States Chemist, after having
analyzed samples of bleached flour from all
parts of the country, found by careful analysis that
flour bleached by the Electrical process was an
adulteration under the Pure Food Law, and Sec.
Wilson, Com'r. of Agriculture has so ruled. All
mills using the Electrical method of bleaching flour
have been notified to discontinue the practice. That
on and after June 2, 1909, a heavy penalty will be
imposed on any one selling or offering for sale
Prof. Ladd, Com'r. of Agriculture of North
Dakota in his investigation and analysis of bleached
flour found traces of poison and in his experiments
in feeding rabbits, bread made from flour heavily
bleached, it killed them like strichnine.
Mills and Flour dealers who are stocked up htav
ily on this bleached flour will endeavor to dump
same on the market at any old price between now
and June 2nd. Flour buyers should keep their eyes
open and not get caught.
For the information of the public we will state
that flour in its natural, and, wholesome state has
a creamy tint, while flour bleached by the Electrical
process has a dead chalky appearance.
After officials of our government, having analyzed
bleached flour, and for the protection of its
citizens, decided it to be an adulteration and unsafe
to be used, then why should anyone jeopordize
his health by the use of same in order to save a few
For the information of their customers and to
all whom l may concern, the Marion Milling Co.,
states that they have never had a bleacher in its mill
Hence they positively guarantee their flour not
bleached and to be as pure and wholesome as flour
can be made and the quality as high as any in the
They also desire to thank all the people of our
town and county for their loyal support and patronage
they have given them in the past and it
shall be their earnest endeaver by honest methods
and fair dealing to continue to merit their patronage
confidence and good will. Again thanking you,
We are Your Friends,

For Fire Losses Caused
IMPORTANT DECISION--CALDWELL CIRCUIT COURT REVERSED
A special from Frankfort to the
daily press under date of Feb. 10th,
"The court of appeals today handed
down a deoision of far-reaching
importance in which it decides that
the insurance companies arc not responsible
for 6re losses caused by
night rider riots.
"In reversing the Caldwell circuit
court in the case of Spring Garden
Insurance Company, Connecticut
Fire Insurance, Caledonian, Hanover

the Imperial Tobacco Company, the
appellate court holds that the riot
clause in these policies is valid and

IN MEMORY OF
MISS ALICE WATHEN
By H. H.
On Monday, Jan. 18th. 19011, the
spirit of Miss Alice Wathen took its
flight and returned to God who gave
it. Quietly as if falling asleep she
passed away without a struggle.
Her beautiful life is its own eulogy,
stands out against tho bacic ground
of years serene and complete.
Thorc is nothinc to wish undone,
nothing to add to that perfected
span of spotless days and years of
her swoot pure Christian life. To
know her was to lovo her. May the
memories of her dear faoo and the
'influence of her Christian example
heal the broken heart of kindred
and friends, lend and guide them to
Her life shown with rayundimmed
and well nigh touches the borderland
of perfection, a cheerful spirit, a
happy heart and a helping hand, so
loyal and so loving to her brothers
and sinters and their children.
Hor neighborh all loved her, will
always remember her kindness and
have sweet memories of her, and
finally may God uso this exquisitly
beautiful life and this sudden death
to the npiritual uplift of uh all, taking
the tendrils of our affections
from tho groveling things of earth
twining them about things etornal.
Her true friend,
Season for Freak Bills.
Bismarck, N. I)., Feb. The three
roost freakish bills now before the
legislature, in the genoral estimation,
aro the following: That
prohibiting the sweeping of
ooaches while passongors are in
them, and makini; tho offenso a misdemeanor;
requiring a physiciau's
certificate as to physical condition as
a prereuito to marriage, and that
compelling druggist selling liquors
to publish monthly the names of buyers,
and quanity and disease it is for
with dates ohronogoicallv.
Those bills aro being stronuoush
idvocatcd by their sponsor, and when
they arc reported an 'i
bato is looked for.
Rev. B. L. Viie, of CVlu, K.,
passed through tho city Tuesday en
route to Lovias to visit relatives.
by Night Riders, Says
Princeton raid in litOC, whijh caused
the suits, says: While wc have no
law defining riot, we must look to
common law and if facts stated do
not define "riot" it would be impossible
to frame an answer that would.
"The Court declares that the policies
do not undertake to insure holders
against not only agai"st Sro and
if rioters had simply torn down the
barns it would have been the same
thing in its meaning.
"The appellate court further .decides
that it docs not consider the
riot claim in policies in violation of
law or public policy.
"The opinion is a sweeping one
and virtually decides that the insurance
companies cannot be made to
pay losses caused by night riders."

child, always obedient to his parents.
Ho bore his sicknes with great fortitude
for a ohild. He told his
brothers that they must help papa
work that ho had to die, he seemed
to know that he had to go but all
seemed woll, but it was hard to give
him up but our loss is his gain.
The Lord has taken him where sick,
noss and sorrow is no more. Weep
not for littlo Freddie for he has
gone from us. but we can go to him.
He leaves father, mother, three
brothers, two sisters ind a host of
relatives and friends to mourn his
There is one sweet face row vanished,
One swecet voice we hear no more
For the htsnd of death has banished
Freddie onto the silent shore.
Mother's darling, pride and comfort,

Now through tears on Jesus leaning.
