Tho tin sanitary condition of countless homes Is woll known to thojncdlcnl fritter mndo Its npptirnnco thero did not iicom to bo nny sntlsfnctory or cf- flcolnt menus of ridding tho houso of bnctorin nud disease breeding germs, Manifestly enrpots could not bo taken up nnd elenned dally and rugs could nt best bo shaken nud beaten only on vory Infrequent occasions. Tho cloancr, howovor, will do tho work ciulckly nnd efficiently every day. Tho labor Incident to removing tho diist-hrccdliiR germs Is reduced to tho minimum, nnd tho work of secur ing sanitary homes, Instead of fiolng n mnttor of consldornblo labor, linn becomo n genuine pleasure "Tho nnnunl death toll as n conio quonco of dlscaso breeding germs In tho homo Is appalling, nud but little was accomplished In Improving sani tary conditions until tho vacuum cleaner was Invented, In many homes tho dust ot nges was allowed to accumulate, nnd it Is not strnngo thnt tho family was n constant visit or. With tho romovnl ot this dust nnd ItH renppenrnnco effectually barred by tho uso ot tho vacuum elennor, nu era ot better health nnd grcntor longevity began nt nnco.

Whllo tho legislation Is burden some, with no compensating benefit, lt theory is uttsotin dnud Ill-con colvod. Gravity Is n poor mensuro of tho quality of gasoline Tho accept ed standard for tho mcnusromrnl of gasollno quality Is Its rnttgo ot boil ing points. This is Indicated In tho roport of tho United States Fuol Ad ministration committee, In which It Is said: "Thero aro no grnvlty limitations In tho specifications for aviation gasollno, nor Iti-tho specifications for motor gnsollno, which nro given Inter, for It hits bosn found thnt gravity Is of llttlo or no vnluo In do tormlnlng tho quality of gasoline " Perhaps it Is not to bo expected thnt legislators should bo familiar with tlioso matters of technical nnd expert knowledge s Hut tho situation Illustrates tho unsoundness of gov ernment Interference In tho nffnlrs of Its people.

It might bo expected thnt legisla tion Imposing such bunions nnd In conveniences on tho public hns for Its object some definite benoflt, nnd Is grounded on some sound cnsnhlor- ntlon of public interest. Such, how ovor, Is not tho enso.
