Almighty God Himself, in whom we
live and move and have our being.
He has made us all, from the jellyfish
to the philosopher, 'of one blood for
to dwell on all the face of the earth,'
and the individual living a long time
and learning as he grows, it is the
race that gathers wisdom, changing
form and habit of existence to fit en
vironment."—Harvey Sutherland in
A decibion rendered by the Superior
Court of San Jose. Cal., on May 16
holds that a nursery must sell trees
that will grow and bear fruit; that
they must approach the standard of
their kinds; and in case the trees do
not grow because of their condition
at the time of sale, or are not stand
ard, then the nurseryman is liable for
the damages caused.
About a year ago L. P. Brackett, a
l'ruit grower of Santa Clara, bought
some fruit trees'of H. Martens and
set out three acres. After three years
of care and culture the trees, which
never had made but a moderate
growth, died. Suit was brought
against the' nurseryman for damage,
and the judgment rendered gives Mr.
The suit turned on the word "mer
chantable." Expert testimony was
furnished to show what a fruit tree
must be to reach the standard ex
pected by law. The court decided
that any person who is deceived into
buying trees that only encumber the
ground, but never thrive or bear fruit,
is entitled to be recompensed to the
amount Of the actual loss sustained.
For Selling Impure Food. A Hard
Fought Trial Is Expected.
At Dayton, Ohio, a grocer named
John L. Schuster has been arrested
for selling Arbuckle's Ariosa Coffee.
The Pure Food Department of Ohio
• laini that the glazing or Ariosa Cof
fee makes it unsaleable in that state.
This interests other grocers, because
similar actions are likely to be
brought against them for selling Ar
buckle's or any other coffee that has
been glazed or coated.
The trial has been set for June 2nd.
It is understood that the Arbuckles
will send New York lawyers to de
fend the case. The Pure Food and
Dairy Commissioner Joseph H. Black
burn, will employ the best legal tal
ent he can secure to represent the
state's side of the case. The laws of
Ohio are very strict in defending the
people against impure food. It is
<iaimed that Arbuckle's Coffe is im
pure, because it is covered with a
glazing that serves to cover up de
fects and make the coffee look better
than it really is, and that this glaz-
Kis cheaper than coffee. Every one
who drinks coffee will be interested
in the outcome.

the cash to buy, this difficulty will
not be of a serious character —but
there are others.
A great deal of Interest is being
manifested on account of the introduc
tion in this territory of the Livermore
Self-Feeder made especially for thresh
ing machines. It is such a simple ar
rangement that wherever grain is cut
by headers it is safe to say no thresher
will be running with anything but a
Livermore Feeder before many, months
pass by. It practically does away with
nearly the entire item of expense in
keeping up the feeder in repairs. It
uandles all kinds of grain. Baker &
Hamilton of San Francisco, who first
introduced the Benicia Rotary Disc
Plow into this territory are the sell
ing agents and are ready to give full
particulars regarding same.
