Attorney-General Herbert S.
Iladley is the strongest guberna

day. The Republican party
could not put up a stronger man
and the recent attack on the
Standard Oil Co. has won him the
respect of all voters. The Dem
ocrats realize these things and
will have their hands full in pick

Another From "Johnny's" Friend.
Again tho Enterprise sings the
flattering praises of "Johnny"
H,)cliffo!!cr, which ara too long
and absurd to enumerate. After
dwelling on tho many, many col
leges endowed and churches
builded at the "honest" hands of
the Enterprise's friend, it asks:
"Ilns ho ever been charged with
grtting his start dishonestly,
wronging anyone out of a pen-
?" No doubt ho got his fctart
honestly enough, but it was the
methods involved after getting a
start that place tho label of dis
honesty on him. No man, thru'
honest und legitimate means, can
become a billionaire without
stealing it, and there is no doubt
in the minds of fair minded peo
ple that monopolies ere wrong.

Artificial Coloring in Viricgar.
In reply to tho inquiries ro-
coivoil relative vj mo uso or
artificial coloring matter for
Vinegars, this department must
cite the inquirer to Sec. i'-X!,
Revised Statutes 1W Vol. 1,
page o.'kX which reads; "All
vinegar sold or ofTorcd for sale,
exchange or delivery, Khali be
without artificial coloring or
flavoring, etc." Tho standard
recently adopted by tho state of
Missouri recognises six vinegars
viz: ciuer, wine, mait, sugar,
glucose and spirit or distilled,
yet in none of these is an artifi
cial coloring recognized. More
over, inasmuch as the only object
the manufacturer or dealer can
have in adding coloring matter
to a naturally colorless vinegar,
is to make it resemble cider or
other colored vinegar, that is, to
make the article to appear better
or of greater value than it really
is; it will come under Art. 4,
Sec. i. Senate Bill 47. page 2.3,
Session Acta 11)07, which reads
"Food shall bo deemed to be
adulterated: 4, if it is mixed,
colored, coated, polished, pow
dered or stalnea In a manner
whereby damage or inferiority is
concealed; or if by any means, it
s made to appear better or of
greater value than it really is,"
therefore this department holds
that all artificial coloring of vine
gar is to adulteration and as
such is prohibited. Labelling
will not chapge the situation.
The standards of strength must

We have had ten years of un
paralleled prosperity; nothing
like it has ever been experienced
in this or any other land in all the
world. There are people who
are content to let well enough
alone, who stand by the ship that
has carried them safely over the
stormy seas. The Dingiey Tariff
law rescued the country from
the most disastrous financial,
commercial and industrial de
pression tho country ever exper
ienced. Where is the sense of
monkeying with it? Let it alone.

Diamonds in the United States
Although diamonds have been
found in at least thirty places in
tho United States, the only local
ity where they occur in place has
recently been discovered and has
been investigated by Mr. George
F. Kunz, the gem expert, and
Dr. II. S. Washington, pctrogra
pher. They occur in an igneous
rock, similar to that of the South
African mines, widen forms a
small htock near Murphreesboro,
1'iko County, Ark. Tho first
two stones were found Aug. 1,
190ft, and frinco then many of
them have been picked up, the
total number found at last report
being 1 'JO. Many are while and
of good water, others are yellow
and some are of brown lort. The
two largest stones weigh 6 l-'J
carats, one being exceedingly
fino white and the other brown.
They are found on the surface
as well as within tho greenish,
friable, decomposed peridotite, a
rock somewhat like the famous
"blue ground," of Kimberly.
The property is being actively
prospected and developed. I
Science tells ua that heaven is
not in the clouds, that bands of
angels singing gladsome hymns
do not swoop down from heaven
to catch up the departing soul
and sail with it to the glory land,
bcience is bothering ltseir in
mighty small business. What
difference does it make where
heaven is? Why should we
trouble to locate it? Heaven be
longs to God and it is His place
to look after it. In the nature
of things we cannot know where
it is, so why spoil this picture
that youth carries to old age?
Why rob us of our pretty condi
tions when no good can be done
by so doing? Our materialism
has all gone far enough. Our
speculations have been clipped
and we are bidden to Btay on the
earth where the clay is thick and
the atmosphere charged with
materialism. Away with it,
Disturb not our pretty faith.
Thero is a heaven somewhere and
the human koul is going to rest
there forever ro . why bother
wiiere the place is located?
These scientists who are so anx
ious to materialize faith are bin

helping it. Out upon them! Ex
