to Light for

This is not our state
ment, but the deliberate
opinion of one of the
most renowned scientists
in the world. Read the
"We have tested beers repeatedly,
placing the bottles in the direct
sunlight, and testing the same after
one, two, three and five minutes
exposure, found that the beer with
three and five minutes exposure
became undrinkable on account of
the peculiar odor developed. The
detrimental effect of light upon
beer can be successfully counter
acted by the employment of brown
or dark colored glass bottles, and
such bottles are, therefore, recom
mendable. " Wahl-Henius Insti
tute of Fermentology.
It is not enough that beer be brewed
pure, it must be kept pure.
Many Americans prefer beer in a
light bottle. Most brewers follow the
course of least resistance.
Light starts decay even in purebcer.
Dark glass gives the best protection
against light. Schlitz is sold in Brown
Bottles to protect its purity from the
brewery to your glass.

Th Mikado's Title.
The ruler of Japan really should b
railed ten-o, not mikado. The latter
means "royal gate" and is a title some
what similar to sublime porte. which
is used indifferently to mean the Turk
ish sultan, his poverament or the conn
try itself. Ten-o means "heaven's
highest," a title surpassing all the most
grandiloquent European efforts. The
original Japanese equivalent for ten-o
la soumelamikoto. but the former is
universally used, perhaps on account
of its brevity.

Dan Donovan had a narrow escape
from death Wednesday night when one
car had just missed striking his rig, a
few blocks farther on another did hit
i him. He was driving down Fourth

j Twenty-third street narrowly missed
running into the Third avenue car. At

was found to have a broken arm. a bro

worse than the master. He was knock
ed over and a leg was broken. It was
necessary to kill the animal.
Sisters Given High School Honors.
Two sisters have captured scholastic
honors of the graduating class at th
high school. Vernette and Monetta
iohnson are the two who share this
unique honor, the former being nam
fd valedictorian, her sister being made
ealutaVjrian. Only a few points sep
arated the two girls in the final sum
mary of their high school work, and
it is still possible, though highly Im
probable that the one who is given
second honors will lead ar the end of
her course. Marks for the standing
of the pupils are based upon the grades
of the first three and one-naif years.
