Tlie Uxislatiire of Ohio has enacted a
' statute by the application of the provisions
' of which the pvoplr of the state can secure
pure lood. The protection against adulter
ation Is complete. Xot only Is the law
ample In it provisions, but food commis
sioner have been appointed, and we are
lad to know that they are active and vigi-
lailt. Not long Since Commissioner Hirst
found samples of maple syrup In this
. . , .. ,
cinittlu: if mania uitidi In th
cltj" that were largely comtiosed nf
glucose. Now glucose may not Ih poison-1
ous. We do not know If it is, or to what
extent it Is unwholesome, but it is certain I
I that it Is not maple syrup and the act of
selling it as such is fraudulent. If srocers
I will ailveiti-e a mixture of maple and glu-
mm; and sell it as such, at a price to corre
spond with Its merit, then nobody will have
a right to complain. But there are adul
terations in numerous other articles of food.
We see, from a recent issue of the Toledo
(Viimicirdif, that Hon. John J. (ieghan. of
Cincinnati, assistant food commissioner,
hRs been Iwkingaboutin the "future greaf
commercial metropolis and that he has dis
coveredas was discovered here that
some samples of maple syrup contain T4
per cent, of glucose; that the celebrated
"Bee Line" fraud has 3S percent, of this
"stuff" in every tub that Is sold. Then as
to baking powders and this feature has
been radically and scientifically treated
In the advertising columns of the IlK
pi in if we may say that Commis
sioner (ieghan finds that "a large quantity
of alum is used in the manufacture of some
powders." anil that physicians say that the
eating of alum In bread or biscuits is inju
rious to the health. Mr. Ceghan reports
finding large quantities of "bous" cider
inegar, so called, and has had the Libels
on the liarrels changed to corresjwind with
the real character of the contents. "In
Cincinnati." Mr. (Jeghan says, "stale beer
and corn slops are used to make vinesar."
What do our readers think -of that? We
warn then to make sure of what
their vinegar is composed tiefore they
buy it. if a food commission
Is not within reach, let Mr. Virgil Coli
lentz bo consulted. If gtwers would apply
to Mr. CoMentz ami put his certificate on
their packages of good to the effect that
they w ere genulue, neither they nor their
customers would make any mistake. The
adulterator is not true: the retail grocer
buxs his goods of the wholesale, dealer,
who Inns in turn from the manufacturer.
Therefore the grocer should demand
that the goods he buys of the
manufacturer should be pure.
There Is one fact to be considered In con
nection with all tins, and that Is that many
people do not themselves wish pure goods:
or rather they are so anxious for, and so in
variably, call for and haggle for cheap
good, that adulteration Is employed to
meet their demands. Pure and good food
products are worth more in the market than
adulterated products. I'siially, thev are not
low-priced; for honest manufacturers can
not put their goods on the maiket at the
same prices which are asked by the adulter
ators for their bogus and jioisoned goods.
One of the first things which ought to lie
done Is to induce the Erie people to build
an indeendent line of track of their own
through Springfield, from Shattuc on the
the north east, to Durbln, on the west. This
is greatly needed. The convenience and
facilities of shippers to say nothing of
passengers would be greatly promoted. We
w ant the F.rie people In here on a track of
their own. so that they will be entirely in
dependent of other lines and can comiete
with them all.
