Body Blow at Butterine.
The Mp;;lar brand of bin tor from the
good old fashioned cow has se-ored an
other victory over oleomargarine. Con
gress. it will be remembered, passed a
law placing ji lax of li cents a jHund
on a.l butterine colored to resemble
butter. Shortly af r the passage of
this l.ivv i' vv.ts discovered that the
use of a proportion of palm oil with
the ;'!rnal fats gave the butterine a
ei!oih tinge, and as the claim was
made that the jiia!ity of the butterine
was t'.i. " . '.uproved it was ho-ted
that this ingenious expedient would
liable the butterine people to flVo!
the maike! with a compound sufficient
ly resembling butter yet not subject
to tbe almost prohibitive tax. Th.it
bit of sharp practice has failed. Judge J
orosseup, in tne u nited states circ.i t
court at Chicago, has declared tu" 1
butterine containing palm oil is sub
ject to the 10-cent tax.
This decision fixing a precedent for
Illinois, the state which is headquar
ters for butterine manufacture, is ot
the greatest benefit to dairymen of
other states, which as a leading dairy
ing state can ill afford to have a cheap
counterfeit jf one of the staple prod
ucts placed on the market.
If imitation butter can be taxed, the
butter maker can count on a profitable
sale of his products when they are a
good as they ought to be.
Making Theatres Safe.
Every theatre in Brooklyn, N. Y.,
has be en eirdered closed until the man
agers have complied with certain strict
requirements of the department of
health. Dr. Darlington, the health
commissioner, has notified all mana
gers that their houses must remain
closed so long as they are a menace to
the lives and persons of theatregoers.
"Not a theatre shall open until it has
been made safe in every way," is Dr.
The order has caused a storm of in
dignation on the part of the theatre
manaecrs. They say they know how
to manage theatres and they want to
manage them to suit themselves. The
health commissioner says they must be
conducted in a manner to insure the

ABOUT THE RAILWAYS.
Sixty men are how at work on the

DAILY SHORT STORY;
CHILDREN, AFTER ALL.
1 aia one of thoe women who think.
To be tied up to a moral code inherited
from remote ancestors has always been
irksome to ine. Though work has not
been neeessary to me, I have worked.
From the first I wanted a career. I
chose literature for a profession, and
living a literary life inaeie me a reaeler
of many lx.ks. Great social eiuestion
Interested me especially, and 1 studiexl
the different methods that from the
earliest ages have pertained to the re

studies impressed with the belief that

I had reached this conclusion some
time before I met Arthur Tracy. He
was the manager of a magazine to
which I sold articles and by admiring
them first won my grateful attention,
afterward my lov He wa luatenl
with a woman who hael no sympathy
whatever with his fine, appreciative
and discriminating mind. He found in
me one who e-oukl sympathize with
biui on every point, aud it was not long
U'lore be told me that I eoulel turn
his unniated life into one of inexpress
Unfortunately for us both, there was
no grouiHl ou which he e-euld get a divorce-.
Mis. Tracy was a good wife
iiiid mother, the only reason why she
could not make her husband happy
l eing her intellectual inferiority. P.ut
why was a elivorce- necessary? Had
1 not reaeheei a conclusion that mar
riage was not necessary to morality?
Hael not one of the greatest of Knglish
women novelists lived with a man
who e-ould not ge't a divorce from his
wife? Why should I, holeliug these
views, stoop to encourage the man 1
loved to secure1 his liberty by fraudu
lent means? Would it not le a far
belter part te make him happy in ele
fianee of a world that had received, its
opinions from antiquity? 1 made up
my ininel to rise above an antiquated
custom. My love and I would pledge
ourselves to each other for life.
I had never se'eu Mrs. Tracy, nor elid
1 wish to see her. There was no blame
attached to her that she was not sutll
eieutly intellee-tual to be a lit compan
ion lor a very supe'rior man. I would
not permit myself to consider that she
was standing in the way of two pe-o-ple
whom God had especially intended
for each other. I was not so. human
as that. One day I went to the oilice
of the magazine to consult about the
method of printing an article of mine,
and from the suit of editorial rooms
a litt! girl about three years old came
racing along, a straw hat hung to her
back and ringlets flying. She was such
a merry madcap thatI took her into
my heart at eince and, stooping, literal
ly took her into my arms. She strug
gled to be free, laughing the while, and
when 1 set her down Jumped again
into my arms.
"You little humbug:" I exclaimed.
"You're- like most of your sex when
you e-au have what you want you elon't
want it. What's your name?"
I look-el into her heaven blue e-yes,
and for the first time since 1 had met
her father the still small voice of-conscience
spoke- to me. I was aliout to
bring sorrow intt the life of this inno
"Come and seej mamma," she said,
grasping one of my fingers. "She's in
papa's office waiting till he comes in."
She draggeel me to the office eloor.
I had no Intention of going In, but
suddenly it opened and some one came
out, leaving It open. Within sat a
woman with a face as sweet and inno
cent as the child's. My confusion en-able-d
the little one to drag ine to the
"Come in," said the lady, rising. "I
wish to spevik to you."
She shut the door behind me and
stood facing me. All my philosophy
could not save me from feeling that I
was in the presence of an accusing
"I know you from the "picture Ar
thur has. He has told me much alout
you and your ideas ideas that I have
neithe-r the learning nor the mind to

he requires; you possess it. I love him
, . well either to stand in the way of
his happiness or to give him reason to
aet unworthily. Whatever steps he
may see fit to take to break the bonds
binding him to me and the children 1
shall aee-ede to. They of course must
remain with me."
During my philosophical studies a
favorite expression with me was "the
cednvebs of the past." While I was
listening to these words, involving a
far greater wisdom, a far higher con
ception than I had ever dreamed of. it
seeiwd that with a fe-ather the speak

of the present. She hael shown m tbe

I could reply the door was opened and

"Arthur Tracy, I can't understand
why you should waste your regard on
me when you have one so much more
worthy of you. Tour wife has taught
me more in one minute than I have
learned from all the books I ha-re ever

We had both been offered what tra
