The beef trust is threatened with
other dangers than those arising from
prosecution for violations of the inter
state commerce act. At the time of
the Spanish war the country was
greatly shocked over the charge that
beef packers had used chemical pre
tervatives on the meat sent to the sol
diers. This was denied, and. while it
was shown that some beef had been
experimentally treated, a long investi
gation, how hone.st is not nuowit. fail
ed to prove that the regular supply
sent out under contract from the pack
ing bouses was "tmbahned." -Now.
however, we see by th New York Tri
bune. that the state dairy and to-id
oniuniissioiur of Pennsylvania has dis-'
cov red i bar b, ef gold in that state has
beeu made nn wholesome by drugs.
The commissioner and his subordin
ates have examined meat ten: ou
trun) the six greatest packine concerns.
The chemists found samples which had
ben colored with aniline dyes, dipped
in f n.iu'dchk' solution, dusted with
sulphites and washed in strong boracic
acid. The investigations lead to the
belief thai the packers regularly mat

find out what sort of meat is being
worked off on our people. Of course,
as the Tribune says: "It i possible

if proof of "Vnibalming" is overwhelm
ing, jhe packers, like the vegetable and
fruit cannens, will protest that they are
being: persecuted, and make excuse
that the public demands boracic acid
and A'ill not. be satisfied to eat meat

DAILY SHORT STORV
VARIA IVANOVNA'S VENGEANCE.
At a cafe in one of tbe principal
boulevards of Paris sat Aleksei Lukitcb.
a Russian gentleman, twirling bis mus
taches, lie had good reason for self
congratulation. High in favor with tbe
czar, he had long loen employed in the
work of hunting dow n certain iersons
suspected by II. I. M. He bad jint
followed one of his master's bitterest
enemies to Paris, secured bis arrest
and, by permission of the French gov
ernment, was on tbe morrow to take
blm to Russia.
A gentleman and lady entered the
cafe and glanced at the occupants, and
the woman, who was veiled, seeing Lu
kitch. though he did uot notice her, said,
something to her companion, and they
took seats directly opposite tbe Rus
sian. When for the first time he looked
at her bis eyes rested upon her curi
ously. "I will trouble you, m'sieu. to cease
your insulting stare." said the wom
The Russian aiologized, but tbe oth
er grew more and more violent till It
was evident that he was intending to
force a quarrel. His insults came so
thick that there was but one recourse
for Lukiteh he tossed bis card at the
man and turned his back. Meauwhile
tbe lady bad retired to a distance, ami
her escort, having produced bis own
card, joined her.
Day was dawning and the liells of
Paris at a distance were striking the
hour of 4 when two carriages, soon
followed by a third, drew up In a road
In the environs and a party from each
pas-ted to sin open space beside a
stream. The mini who tbe night 1h
fore had foreetl the quarrel advanced
to Lukiteh nnd said:
"Permit me, m'sieu, to apologize ftw
my insulting language last night, or,
rather, to explain It. Early in tbe
evening a lady asked me to escort her
In a round of visits to the restaurants
in n search for some one she wished to
find. When she saw you she asked
me ti take the course I did. promising
that the affair should be taken off my
bands. M'sieu, I have the honor to
present your real antagonist."
A figure, smaller than the others
present, who bad been standing back,
advanced, threw aside a clonk and re
vealed that she was a woman. She
was dressed in a tight fitting costume,
with a short skirt, such as girls wear
In a gymnasium. The moment Lukiteh
saw her be started.

in a tone that Indicated he knew It
meant a g od deal to him.

The others of both parties drew near,
intent on this strange turn In the af
fair. 'Ilie woman continued:
"You are a faithful servant of your
master. Aleksei Lukiteh. He rewards
j-ou for your service to blm; it is my
part to punish you for your treachery
to me. You made love well, Aleksei.
so well that you won my heart. You
bad line revolutionary sentiments, so
fine that ihey won my confidence and
I revealed our purposes to you. Do
von see these shrunken cheeks, Uiese
prematurely white hairs? Well, Ihese
come from prison life in Siberia, where
you sent me: It wa during those bit
ter days in that dark wintry country
that I conceived this purpose, and
every day. except when I took part in
a hunger strike in which we were try
ing to end our sufferings by death. I
renewed my vow of vengeance. That
vengeance was to have been murder.
I have changed It to death hi an hon
orable way fn the eyes of the world.
The woman spoke n though n t for
:l moment did she doubt tbe issue of
the combat. To her enemy her words
seemed prophetic. Tbe hand in which
ie held bis sword trembled.
Then be av a throng of wretched
real ii res. emaciated, starved, covered

the handsome fellow that bad won her
heart for the purpose of betraying her
nnd those whose secrets she had given

lighted her face, dark with her own
and others revenge.
"On guard!"' she crid.
"On guard!" shouted the men of both
parties as matadores strive to angr a
Aleksei Lukiteh heard and roused
himself to die.
A few minutes later tbe woman
threw down her sword and walked,
quickly to her carriage. There was n
womanly reaction. She did not shud
der; she did not weep. This phase of
woman's nature at least for this on
man whom she had killed had loDg
ago been eliminated. Alone she had
come on to the field, and alone she drove
away. She had sprung from whence no
one knew and went no one knew
whither. No angel of vengeance ap
pointed by heaven to avenge sorrows
heaped on Its suffering children could
have struck mors mercilessly.
