The Secret of Good Coffee
Even the best housekeepers cannot make a good cup of
woffee without good material. Dirty, adulterated and queerly
blended coffee such as unscrupulous dealers shovel over their
counters won't do. But take the pure, clean, natural flavored
LION COFFEE, the leader of all package coffees
the coffee that for over a quarter of a century has been daily
welcomed in millions of homes-and you will make a drink fit
for a king in this way:
HOW TO MAKE GOOD COFFEE.
Use LION COFFEE, because to get best results you must use the best coffee.
Grind your LION 'oUFF IEE rather fine. 'ee "ai tablespoonrful to each cup, and one
utt for the pot." Fir1 t mix it with a little cold water, enouth to timake a thick paste, and
add hite of an egg (if e'g-. is to be used as a settler), then follow one of the following rules :
jst WITH BOILING WATER. Add boiling water, and let it boil
TIIEE MINUTES ONLY. Add a little cold water and set aside live
niautes to ettle. Serve promptly.
2d WITH COLD WATER. Ad your cold water to the paste and
g it to a boil. Then set aside, add a little cold water. and in live
ates it's ready to serve.
Q oDon't boil It too long.
0 Don't let it stand more than ton minutes before serving.
DO'rst Don't use water that has been boiled before.
TWO WAYS TO SETTLE COFFEE.
16t. With Eggs. lee part of the white of an egg, mixi,,g it with the g-ocnd LION
COFFEE before oiling.
td. With Cold Water instead of eggs. After boiling add a dash of cold water, and set
idle for eight or ten minutes, then serve through a strainer.

The Scalping Business.
There are two sides to the question
at issue between the rglroads on the
one hand and those more or less malo
dorous people known as "scalpers" on
the other, and the "scalpers' " side is
not without merit, where considered as
a purely abstract proposition.
The scalper lays down the ditum
that a ticket is the property of the man
who'buys it, and that the purchaser,
therefore, has a right to dispose of it
as hlie sees proper and at any price he
sees fit to accept 't. and, going further.
he claims that the purchaser of a tick
et pays for and is entitled to the trans
portation it provides or its value ini
money. and his a right to sell it.
As an abstract proposition, the scali
er has a strong position, and macks the
most of this quid pro qu, argument.
but his defense being based on false
premiums, his logic is wrong and his
conclusions are erroneous.
If the railroads had no rights which
the public sbould reslrct. and if the
contract into which tlie plrchaser en
ters with the railroad when he pur
chases a special rate ticket can he vio
lated regardless of the ethical ques
tions involved in every agreement
business or otherwise-then the scalp
ers would be in the right.
Unfortunately for the scalper's posi
tion, the tickets which form the stock
in trade of his illegitimate business are
sold for the accommodation of large
numbers of people who could not oth
erwise avail themselves of the travel
and traffic which are thus put within
their reach, andt for the benefit of busi
ness men and other citizens at the
other end. They are sold with a speci
fled limit, for a specified purtpose, and
for a specified occasion. They are sold
under a plainly stated understanding
or contract between the railroad and
the purchaser, which is as legally and
morally binding on the one as on the
other, or should be.
Then the scalper, in order to pro
mote his own nefarious business, (1)
works against the public interst be
cause, if he succeeds, the result will be
the abrogation of all special rate excur
sions, and (2) he works to induce hon.
est men to act dishonestly and in vio
lation of their contracts.
The scalper is unquestionably a men
ace to the business and moral interests
of his locality; he is a gambler of the
most detestable and harmful type.
Our laws are supposed to be de
signed for the public good, and they
provide punishment for the crime of
gambling, the receiving of stolen goods,
the violation of contracts, etc., and it
is not unreasonable to hope that they
may be able to reach and crush this
species of disreputable, if not dishonest,
lawbreaker, not in the interest of the
railroads, but in the interest of de
cency and honor and good morals,
as well as business integrity and good
With the damage suit industry and
the nefarious scalping crushed, we
may look for a healthier tone in the
industrial world, and great enter
prises which incidentally promote ev
ery public interest and build up those
sections in which they lay, thus as
sured of justice and a fair deal, will
have their sphere of usefulness en
larged and will not be slow to im
prove not only the facilities for handl
ing the public business, but for larger
investments and new enterprises.
Anything which threatens capital
and enterprise and endangers their
safe investment and proper adminis
- tration works greater injury to the
public interests than it does to the
enterprise against which it is directed.
That the public is awakening to this
fact is evidenced by the withering of
the damage suit industry and the cru
sade against the "scalpers" under an
aroused public sentiment.-Eagle Pass
STRANGE, ISN'T IT?
A woman sees a hat or bonnet In a
mlliner's window. It is in the latest
style, so she determines to have that
hat--or one Just like it.
.No use to try to dissuade her-she
wants that kind of a hat! No other
will suit her.
There she displays her will power,
and probably does the same with
everything she buys for herself or her
family. She makes, as it were, a fern.
inine "declaration of independence."
