AGAINST THE PUBLIC INTEREST.
UNCLE IKE HAD A GRIEVANCE.
Overzealous Reformers Work for Law
Against Proprietary Medicines.
"Schemes to diminish or destroy
the sale of proprietary medicines aro
constantly being devised by Interested
parties. Every now and then some
zealous reformer comes to the front
with tho demaud for a law to require
every package of proprietary medi
cine to be labeled with a printed
statement of the 'formula,' showlnK
Just how It Is manufactured. The mil
lions of people who use proprietary
mcdlclnos seem to bo satisfied; but
the man with u mania for regulating
the affairs of other people or who has
somo personal Interest to serve Is
the ono who agitates tho proposition.
To a person who has never taken
time to consider It, such a proposition
may seem reasonable enough; yet It
Is In fact nothing more nor less than
a scheme to compel the manufactur
ers to put their trade throughout tht
entlro country at tho mercy of every
commercial pirate who might choose
to flood tho market with Imitations of
"UnSer such conditions tho Incen
tive for tho original manufacturer to
Rdvertlso his goods would be practi
cally destroyed, for tho money spent
on advertising would Inure mainly to
the benefit of the pirates and Imita
tors. Without advertising, the public
would receive little information In
regard to the medicine, and all future
sales would bp greatly impaired if
not wholly destroyed. It is mainly by
judicious advertising that, tho knowl
edge of proprietary medicines is
brought to the publlr. Nothing is
more certain than that millions of peo
ple have found relief at a compara
tively small expense by the use of
somo remedy first called to their
notice through newspaper advertising.
Why, then, should the manufacturer
of a meritorious proprietary remedy
be compelled by law to practically
destroy his business as a condition of
being allowed to carry It. on? Yet
that Is exactly what those formula
bills mean. Exchange.

Coulcln t Vote for a Candidate Who
Wasted His Money.
When tho late Melbourne 11. Ford
mado his run for Congress he over
looked nothing that ho thought woulu
Improve his chances of election. One
of his moves was the taking of an or
chestra to a mooting hold In one of
tho small towns near Grand Rapids.
This generous depart tiro may havt
won him several votes, but it untitles
tionably lost him ono. livery village
has Its character, and tho ono there
was "Uncle Ike."
Whenever that orchestra broke
forth "Uncle Ike" fastened a liorce
glance upon tho bass drummer. Dur
ing the ordoal the jaws of tho village
character worked liko those of a buck
rabbit eating cabbage, and his white
beard of tho spinach pattern waved
furiously in unison. Next morning
one of those who had watched tho ac
tions of "Uncle Iko" drew him out on
the subject, keeping lr. mint, that ho
played tho bass drum in tho local 1
"sheepskin" band, and that jealousy
seems an inseparable part of tho mu- i
sical temperament. !
"I suppose that you'll vote for Ford, i
Uncle Ike?" !
"Then you bettor hire some smarter
feller to do your supposin. No man
kin hao my support that wastes his j
own money like it was water." j
"What do you mean, Uncle Iko?"
"Well, you hain't no muslclanor, but
I'd like to know what senso there was

Not Always Orange Blossoms. j
Only in England, France and Amor- j
ica is the orange blossom the bridal
llower. When tho German frauleln ;
becomes a frau her head is garlanded ,
with myrtle, except in certain sec-
tions, where gaudy wreaths of artifl- '
cinl flowers replace tho natural j
blooms and are treasured from gen
eration to generation. In Italy and
the French cantons of Switzerland
white roses are dedicated to tho
brides as well as tho dead, but in
Spain red roses and pinks lend an ad
ditional touch of color to the bridal
dross of black and yellow. Greek
brides aro garlanded, appropriately
enough, with vino leaves, and in Bo- ,'
hernia rosemary is supposed to bring '
luck to the brldo who wears it. In
most or the countries of Eunrope, how
ever, tho bridal wreath is considered
as essential as tho veil and preit
sentiment clusters about the faded
wreath that Is laid away, whether tho
wreath be of orange blossoms v laur

"Lounges." "couches," sofas," "tote
a-tetes" or "seats' are no longer talk
od about, for the old-fashioned "set
lie" is tho accepted favorite of the
present day. Set by tho fireplace or
on the side porch, the old Kensington
rears Its high carved back, the Chip
pendale braces its slender logs, and
tho "saw-horse settle" turns out its
feet of claws. Even the popular divan
has to hide its diminished head under
Its multiplicity of pillows before the
wrought ram's heads of the now sot
ties, which aro said to bo a reproduc
tion of a style in use a thousand years
before the Christian era.
