The shimmering moonlight silvered
the plncid water. The tinkle of a banjo
down in the cabin floated up the com
pnnlonwny and Bpread Itself around
the dock. The girl leaned against the
rail. The captain was first.
"Miss Oldgirl." he said softly, "from
the first minute yon decorated this
ship with your charming presence. I
have worshiped you. Yea. worshiped.
Worshiped. As an old sea dog. the
word ought to have "ship" In It some

for the rest of this earthly cruise?"
The girl was just about to answer
when the first mate appeared,
"Hear me before you promise," ho

happiest man on earth I will jump
overboard and stick out my tongue
at the lifo boat. Say, yes; ah,

President Taft's Recommendation to
Amend the Pure Food and
The Pure |i*ood and Drills Act,
which has done so much for iho peo?
pie of America in providing a supply
Of pUI'O food and drugs, was adopted
hy Congress nftor many years of In
vestigation ami deliberation, and in
spite of the opposition from import
ant Interests. It lias protected (he
dealer as well as the consumer ngnlnsl
fraud and imposition as practiced for
years by expert adulterators and suh
One of the splendid features of the
act prohibited misbrnnding that is.
holding out to the public that a pro
duct was thus and so, when it really
was not. The misbrnnding feature of
the act was not as clear as it miglil
have been and, under a provision of
the act. the Rurenu of Chemistry of
the Agricultural Department was em
powered to make rules ami regulations
for carrying the administrative fea
tures of the act into effect.
\i Ii ist misbrnnding applied only to
claims Which appeared Upon the label
or container of an article of food or
medicine hut later on. under a ruling
of the bureau, the misbrnnding pro
vision was given a wider application
nnd was held to apply to all state
ments made with reference to iho in
gredients, standard of strength ami
purity, nutritive or curative values of
a product. The enforcement of the
law for some time was carried on
under this wider Interpretation <>i the
misbrnnding feature of the net.
Aboul a year ago, in what is known
? .- iho .lohnson Cancer Cure Case, the
Supreme Court of the Cnjted Stales
held Hint the misbrahdlng provision
of the act had hoch extended by the
Rurenu nf Chemistry in nil unwnr
! ranted manner and that, in the opinion
of this august tribunal, an article was
.not mlsbranded except misrepresen
tations were made upon the Iahe- or
'container under which or in which the
article was sold. Ah the public gen
erally hail regarded the act In its
broad aspects and power for good,
it did not make much difference with
them whether a misrepresentation was
ion the label, in a newspaper advertise
incut, or hi n circular loiter, liecauso
the r<'still was die name, that the
purchaser was deceive'!.
President Tail took this practical
view of tho mailer in a special mos
sage to Congress, in which h<- recom
mended thai Ihn Pure Pood ami Di nes
Aci ho amended so as to overcoine Hie
tiercel made manifesl hy the Supreme
Court decision in the Johnson Cancer
Cure Case. President Tal'l held that
misrepresentation, no matter when or
how made, should he prohibited under
t lie terms 1,1 'his act.
\t the following annual meeting of
'he National Association of Retail
Druggists, an organization compris
ing abOUl thirty thousand retail drug
gists throughout the country, a reso
lution was adopted supporting the
recommendation of President Tai ft to
Congress and the Legislative Commit
tee of tliis great organization of re
tail druggists, which llio Chicago Tri
biinc lias termed ? the greatest organ
ization of retail merchants in the
world,'! was instructed to aid in ovory
possible manner the passage of such
an amendment bill as would make the
President's recommendation effect Ivo.
It Is now probable that bet?re Hie
present Congrss adjourns and surely
at the next Congress at latest, all tnis
ropresontnt Ions of food and drug pro
ducts, on the label or elsewhere, will
be prohibited bj the Pood und Drugs
Act and violators of the law sevplH'i.y
