IOLLAR for dollar,
more in Ivory Soap than in any household
soap. It is easy to find a cheap soap ; but
to find purity and low price in a single soap
is not easy. They combine in Ivory Soap. You
can afford to use it in the laundry; you can not
afford not to use it elsewhere. It is vegetable-oil
soap, in the cheapest form in which it can be pro
cured. You pay nothing for a fancy box, wrapper
or perfume. It is all in the soap! It floats.
UNIFORM tAWS URGED
Uniform laws and rulings in the
different states against impure foods
and the creation of a national pure
food commission are the main desires
at present of te National Association
of Dairy and Food Commissioners.
The organization will meet Oct. 15 at
Buffalo, the president's assassination
iiavlng caused a postponement for
one month from tbe original date.
Pure Food Commissioner Alfred L
Jones, of Illinois, is president of the
national association, which has been
la existence ere years. There will be
delegates from Illinois. Na York.
Ohio, Iowa, Wisconsin. Michigan,
Indiana. New Jersey, Connecticut,
Pennsylvania, Kentucky, Minnesota
and California, and possibly from
other states which are not now repre
sented in the association.
In the states which now have food
or dairy commissioners or both there
are many gocd laws regulating traflic
In foodstuffs, but in numerous in
stances thre are conflicting statutes.
Huch laws were mainly framed by leg
islatures before the food commissions
were formed. Whi'e one state may
prohibit the sale of a certain article
another may hare a provision against
only the manufacture of the same
article. In this way the impure pro
duct may bo legally manufactured in
tbe first stale and sold in the second,
and tbe objct cf the lawmakers in
both states be defeated.
Tbe creation of a national food
commission is now proposed in two
bills before congress, known as tbe
Brosius and Babcock bills. Such
commission would be empowered to
regulato interstate trmj in food
stuff and thus be a gre it aid to the
state commissioners. Commissioner
Jones prefers the Brosius bill to the
Babcock measure, bee i use it would
make the commission as important a
part of the agricultural department
as the pension bureau is of the in
terior branch of the federal govern
ment, while Congressman Babcock'a

It is difficult to obtain reliable
statistics as to the percentage of food
sold in violation of law or the effect
of enforcement of law on tbe moials
of tbe community. Bat we dokiow
positively that fraud after fraud has
been exposed and driven from the
markets through the enforcement of
food laws. Unfortunately fresh dep
redations are devised to take their
place, requiring tbe utmost diligence
on tbe part of the commission to pro
tect the public
"Even after 20 years under a fairly
efficient food law. Dr. Hehner esti
mates the percentage of adulteration
in Great Britain at from 4 to 50 per
cent in the various districts. Other
things being cjial, the amount of
adulteration is roughly proportioned
to the risk of detection. Unfortu
nately, most fo'd ommisslons are
long on inspectors and short on chem
ists. 'In the cise of such commonly
adulterated articles as butter, vine
gar, lard, cheese and milk, which are
almost invariably sold without label,
trade or distinguishing marks, no
sample can be presumed to be pure.
What we would like to see is a uni
form law throughout tho country re
quiring every article sold to be
labeled, as Is done In Ohio."
