revenue bill, which is pending in
Congress, requires that every birrel
of adulterated or "mixed" rlourshall
be stamped with a 4 cent stamp and
plainly branded "mixed flour."
There Have been several measures
in roducjd requiring that mixed
Hour shall be specifically branded,
and imposing a penalty for any dis
regard of the liw. Legislation to
compel honest branding of flour is
greatly needed. Not only should
congress puss a law to this effect.
but every State shouia nave a law
compelling the proper branding of
flour, lara ana evey otner iooa
product. The people should be pro
tected from the dishonesty which
deceives them and imposes upon
them adulterated foods under lying
brands. The manufacturer who
sells an adulterated article of food
for a pure article is a cheat, and
none who cheat tne puouc oy tne
use of false brands should be allowed
to pursue the dishonest practice.
In many publications concerning
"mixed" or "spikeed" flour it has
been insisted that the adulterations
Sr iSp used for the par
are not unwholesome; tnac corn

ous and wholesome as the wheat.
But there I evidence to show that
the most deleterious substances are
also used for adulterating flour, and
it follows that if the practice of
adulteration is not interfered with
by the 6trong arm of the law, the
public will be constantly imposed
upon to tneir nurt. in tne senate
the other day Senator Mason read a
confidential circular letter from a
North Carolina firm, addressed to a

that this "mineraline" is ground

.VflOper Bushel In 1S1J.
Wheat at $2 a bushel seems re
markable, in view of the positive as
sertions made a year a;o that dollar
wheat would never again be realiz
ed in this country," says the Coun
try (lentleman. "Hut even this high
figure docs not represent some of
the war prices, or famine and 'corn
er' prices that have prevailed in the
past. In August of 1K12 wheat
reacnea the remurkaole price of
$5 00 a bushel the hiirtiest on rec
ord. Thi9 was due to thp failure of
the English crop and to the prohibi
tive tariff on cereals at that date.
Fluctuations in the prices of wheat
were violent in those days, before
crop statisticians had developed
their science of forecasting the future.-
In Augusof 1810 wheat sold
in England at $3.60 a bushel, and the
following June it fell to $2.6!); then it
advanced sharply to fo.OO a bushel in
August of 1812 and dropped to $2 30
in 1813. In ISM we had a period of
violent fluctuations in wheat prices.
Early in the year cash wheat sold
in Chicago at 77 cents a bushel, but
in November it was selling at $2.03 a
bushel. Following this came the
celebrated 'corner' in wheat'
which forued the price up to $2 85
by May 1. This is the highest level
reached in this country in modem
times Heveral high levels, how
ever, have been touched by wheat
since then, but thy were caused
chiefly by speculators who 'corner
ed' the market and gave an artifi
cial value to the cereal. In August,
1872, wheat sold in Chicago at $1.01,
and by November it was down to
$1.01. In 1887 an attempt was made
to 'corner' the wheat market, and
when cash wheat was selling at 80
cents it was freely predicted that $2
wheat would be reached inside or
three months, but the syndicate of
speculators had not made good cal
culations. The stocks in the coun
try were much larger than they an
ticipated, and wheat poured in from
every quarter. On June 15 the
'corner' collapsed and in three hours
wheat dropped from 92 3-4 to 72 3 4
cents a bushel. In 1883 speculators
cornered the market successfully
and forced the price of wheat up
from 71 cent" in April to $2 a bushel
on September 30."
