Extra ruro salt
It Is a well known fact
f ht Tmnui-a Salt is very injurious to health. Or
dinary Salt contains more or less lime, magnesia
and other impurities which occasion stone in the
bladder and other painful diseases. Now as Salt
enters into the makeup of almost everything we eat
it becomes essential that a perfectly pure article
should be used. I . M. Welch & Son have experi
mented on a great many kinds of Salt, and have at
last found one on which they can place their name
and guarantee as a perfectly pure Salt. This Salt
is put up by them under the Star Brand, (Trade
Mark patented). In linen bags, at 5c, 10c and 15c per
bag, and in paper boxes at 5c each. The 15c bags
contain nearly a peck. It will be seen that this Salt
costs no more than ordinary Bait, and after once
using you will have no other. Be sure and call for
and see thatyou get the Star Brand. Put up only by

PROGRESS FllOn POVERTY.
Edward Atkinson says much that is
timely and well worth attention, but nothing
that he has lately said is more impressive
than his address on "Progress from Poverty."
Mr. Atkinson pointed out that experience
shows that the great remedy for socialism is
the development of the individual and the
education of the young. Labor is fast learn
ing that diminished profits and prices go
hand in hand with higher wages and lower
cost. The earning power of capital haa de
creased since 1860 from 8 to 4 per cent..,
while labor's condition has improved. The
veiy poor are not more numerous than for
merly. In the organization of labor is found
an attempt to equalize the disparities of
modern conditions. High wages are the cor
relative of low cost. Pauper labor is to be
feared only by those of pauper intelligence.
He has investigated fifty arts. They all
show progress developing from poverty; high
wages with diminished profits, and on all
sides an approach to more equal conditions
of the employer and laborer.
Concerning the conflict between labor and
capital Mr. Atkinson said: "If a capitalist
saves what wonld otherwise be wasted, of
what harm is he? Of old he kept everything
to himself; now he has to allow others to
share the benefits of his work. More than
90 per cent, of the people enjoy substantial
equality now. The rich have more clothing,
but the poor wear out more. In fuel they
are equal consumers. The greatest disparity
between the two is in shelter and in the con
trol of their time. Subsistence is now so
abundant that there is complaint of overpro
duction. There is more capital than could
be used." And further: A great cry goes

appear almost incredible. He has photo

a rifle and while it was proceeding with a
velocity of 440 metres rather more than a,
quarter of a mile a second. A Werndl in

purpose of conducting the experiment, which
was in every way successful, a perfect repro

fifty years ago contained the essential fea

detail. The modern engines possess at least
four times as great steaming power, coupled
with sixfold weight. Compared with a mod
ern locomotive the Planet type of 1832 to
1836 had a weight of seven and one-half tons
instead of forty-five tons, a fire-grate area of
7 square feet instead of 40 square feet, a

1,400 square feet.
A Complaint From A Man
Wants To Work.
To the Editor of the Journal and Courier:
This is a hard time and there seems to be
no good place for the peaceable and honest
workingman, who has really learned his
trade, and asks only to be left to work at it in
peace. Me goes quietly about nis business,
troubling nobody, but steadily earning a
comfortable living, helping his children in
their love for study and passing the time
'o day on excellent terms with the boss. I
am that man and have worked for this same
boss ever sinee I was "out of my time," and,
in fact, I learned my trade in his shop, and
we never had a disagreeable word together.
On my way home one evening, there stepB
up to me a stranger, who says he is a "walk
ing delegate," and surprises me by informing
me that I must join the union (to enable him
to get the regular percentage for roping me
in, I suppose, though he doesn't say that)
and assures me that if I refuse he will see to
it that no more work is given me. He as
serts that no union man will work with me,
and that he is going straight to the boss and
will order him mind you, I am positive
that he used the word order he will order
the boss not to employ any but union men
in his shop. I feel half afraid not to listen
to him, and later I do as he says,
join his union and pay my fee,
for the delegate will be sure
not to overlook that item and then go back
to work again as usual. But I can see plain
ly enough that matters are not quite as they
were. I feel as if an invisible wall had been
built up between the boss and me; he loeks
sad-eyed and unhappy. Now I am a union
man, and am expecting every day that one
f the boys will find fault with the way the
foreman brushes his hair or ties on his apron,
and that the walking delegate will order us
out. Think of me idling in the streets in
working hours me that in all my life never
was obliged to miss a day's work except on
account of personal matters and with three
of the children working day and night at
their lessons, and wanting new books (they
always want shoes) as they go up into a high
er class at school, and a new baby coming,
and the Lord knows when I may
cet to work and we too busy with all
these thoughts to care a wooden-button
mould what the foreman does with his apron
or his hair. I think, Mr. Editor, you must
see that the industrious, capable working
man, willing aud even anxious to work, is
now in a tight place. Non-union no work.

DECK BUNTING IN THE BAYOUS
Disappearance of mallards aodlTeal-
How Professionals Hunt.
New Orleans Cor. New York Sun.
The only explanation of the disappearance
of the ducks from their former haunts near
the city is the destruction of the feed wild
celery, water cress, wild rice, etc. During
the past month these plants have died in
such quantities that the ducks have fled to
other feeding places, and those that remain
behind are remarkably thin and nave a
fishy flavor. The unusually low water in the
river and in the swamps, in conseguence of
which most of the lagoons are dry, may have
something to do with the disappearance
of these swamp plants and the flight of the
The ducks have retired deeper into the

Allemanus have become tne minting grounds
for mallards and teal. The latter is one of
the oldest hunting grounds in the Union, and
the supply of game is apparently as inex
haustible to day as it was a century and a
half ago, when the Dutch hunters from
whom the bayou is named supplied the town
of New Orleans with ducks. There are over
four hundred professional hunters on Bayou
des Allemands alone, and from the single
station of Bayou des Allemands, on the
Southern Pacific roads, no less than one
million duckB were Bhipped to New Orleans
last year, and as many as twelve thousand
in a single day. The average number killed
each year by a good professional hunter is
The professionals hunt in parties of from
ten to thirty, and have regularly organized
camps in the center of the swamp. They
have their rude huts built in the higher
patches of ground, and running from their
houses for miles back in the prairie are
ditches that they have out and whioh they
keep always open. It is through these mini
ature canals that they push their pirogues
when searching for ducks. Both sides of
the bayou are complete networks of these
ditches, running in all directions. The
most rigid observance is maintained of the
rights of ownership of these canals. It is
this that prevents amateur hunters from ac
complishing much in the way of shooting
ducks, as they have no use of these canals
and are unable to force their pirogues or dug
outs through the thick matted, grass every
where covering the swamp. Even the
professionals find this grass very trouble
some, and more than half the ducks killed
are lost in it. Nearly all the best hunting
grounds in the bayou have thus been taken
up, and the amateurs are left only the
outlying districts, where ducks are few and
the hunting bad.
Just west of the duck fields are the snipe
and woodcock grounds in bt. Mary parisn,
where a good hunter will pick off three
hundred and fifty snipe and one hundred and
fifty woodcock a day. Bath snipe aad
woodcock are abundant just now, and there
are some prairie chickens to be found also.
The supply of these, of wild turkeys, deer,
rabbits and other game is making good some

The Proposed Criminal Court.
To the Editor of the Journal and Courier:
That there is a necessity for some reform
in the administration of criminal justice in
the county of New Haven is admitted by all
honest thinking men. The records of the
ity, borough and justice courts in the
county fully show the large volume of crimi
nal business that annually flews through
them into the Superior court, to be swal
lowed in the maelstrom of its nolles. Last
year about 600 cases, half of which were
from the City court of New Haven, were
appealed to the Superior court, of which not
more than one-sixth were tried. The balaacs
were disposed of by settlement or nolle, and
the fact that all minor cases are so settled or
nolled has become so well known among the
criminal community that they make little or
no defense in the lower court, preferring to
take their chances in the higher. This is
notably so in liquor eases, a demurrer be
ing filed and the accused going to the higher
court without the shadow of a trial, expect
ing there to escape, either by the failure of
evidence or the act of the State's attorney,
without the shadow of fine or cost. Even
lawyers trade upon . this expectation. A !
notable example occurred in the City court
last week. A man who had been repeatedly
arrested and convicted for the same offense
was arrested again for indecent exposure. The
evidence was absolutely conclusive. Five
witnesses swore to seeing the man on two
different days, the 5th and 7th of this month,
expose himself in the most outrageous man
ner to girls or women on the public street.
He was sentenced to $25 for each offence.
The attorney at once saw the man's wife and
induced her to pay him $50. For this sum
the attorney procured a bondsman and
agreed to save the man harmless. And yet
in every case of appeal the State pays the
It was testified before the committee in
Hartford that nearly $6,000 was paid from
the State treasury back to the City court last
year as costs in appealed cases
If this was half of the business of the eounty
then $12,000 was paid back to the city, bor
ough and justice courts last year in appealed
cases, only a few of which were tried, an
other few settled upon the payment of a
small amount of money and the balance dis
posed of by nolles, etc. Admit, then, that
some reform is necessary, what shall it be?
Prof. Johnson T. Piatt says, and some others
agree with him, that another judge of the
Superior court is all that is required. The
judges of the Superior court are itinerant,
and hold court in various parts of the
State as civil business requires. If
there was another judge would he hold
criminal court in New Haven any more than
now? It was said when the criminal court
was established in Waterbury that that
would relieve New Haven and give more
time to the trial of criminal causes or reduce
the number of trials so that the New Haven
cases could be tried. Such has not been the
result. The criminal court of Waterbury
has, say, two hundred cases on its docket,
but the number in New Haven is as large as
ever and there are no more trials. Even Mr.
Doolittle did not think when before the com
mittee in Hartford that another judge of
the Superior court would remedy
the evil. He would be absorbed
in civil business and we should
be as bad off as ever. But suppose a judge
was appointed for the Superior court and as
signed to New Haven for the trial of the
class of oases which the bill provides shall go
to the new oourt, for it must be remembered
that no case where the offense is State prison
ean be tried by the new court, and there were
thirty-seven ot these last year from this City
court and probably as many more from the
county, enough to keep ona judge the entire
time; sappose. however, a judge is appoint
ed; his salary is $4,500 a year, while a oil1
provides only a salary of $3,000 for te new
court judge. Is it worth $1,60, a year to
call a man a Superior coiirt judge?
nut, witu a new superior court judge you
must also have an assistant State attorney
and the same jury as in the new court. If
the new judge was called a Superior court
judge all the argument of this class of objec
tions-would be removed, for the bill pro
vides that the records shall be kept by the
clerk of the Superior court, and the new
court would probably occupy for a large part
of the year the unused criminal court room
in the new Superior court building. But a
$3,000 Superior court judge would be an
anomaly, and really ought the judges of the
Superior court to give their time to the trial
of petty cases of jail offences or fines? And
on the other hand ought there to be a failure
of justice because there is no judge to try
the cases when the evidence can be had, and
often not to be had at all?
Another plan proposed ia to give the City
court a jury. One argument in favor of a
new court with a jury is, it would at once
prevent, by the certainty of trial, one-half of
tne appeals and save that money to the State
treasury. Bat sappose a jary was given to
the City court in criminal cases and no ap
peal allowed, every person tried would elect
to be tried by a jury, and especially if he
could raise $5 for a lawyer, for the chance
of one man out of twelve is greater
than the chance to influence one judge.
There were nearly 4,000 cases in the City
court last year. Given 1,000 of these jury
trials, or three a day, and it would require
three judges and three oourt rooms to dis
pose of them, unless the suggestion of Mr.
Pigott was adopted and the City court judges
sit days, evenings and Sundays. Bui adopt
the Jry tor tne City court, what chance
would there be for a conviction in a large
majority of cases? Mr. Pigott in his very
interesting article in the Register objects to a
jury fresh from the barnyard and the hay
mow" to trv liquor cases, but he would not
object to a jury from the saloons and street
corners. If it is difficult now to enforce our
criminal laws, what would it be with a city
jury in the City court paid $1 a day for their
services, as ex -Judge Robinson suggests. Mr.
Reynolds pays $1.50 for his "outside poor"
upon the streets.
The only objection or any weight urged
against th& new court is its cost. This is no
objection. There would be no cost for a
court room. There is plenty of room in the
new court building The salary of the judge
is fixed at $3,00Q. The bill provides that the
new judge may also hold a civil side of the
court when called upon, without extra pay.
This would save S7UU or more, and reduce
the actual cost for judge to say $2,300. The
attorney has a salary of $2,000, making for
judge and attorney $4,300. The jury would
cost $30 a day, and it is estimated would sit
175 days in the year. Costing then for jury in
round numbers $0,000 for the year, $11,000
would be the entire appropriation for the new
court for the year. What would be the return?
First, an indefinite amount saved in tne
expense of side judges in the
Common Pleas court, $U0; saved in
costs in cases not appealed, $0,000; saved in
costs and fines in eighty-one liquor cases,
supposing fiftv convictions and $75 the aver
age cost and tine,$3,750;and last and greatest
of all the wonderful effect in restraining
crime and encouraging the wouldba well
doers by the certainty of speedy trials and
sure convictions where guilty, and acquittals
where innocent. Ten thousand dollars com
ing back from the court, or more, would re
duce the actual cost of the court to a mere
trifle, and if nothing came back in money the
nronnnod new court would be worth all it
costs in influence on the criminal classes by
the assurance it gives of speedy trials. J.

Stepping into a druggist's store the ether day,
our attention was called to something new for the
cure of coughs and colds, which we were informed
was having a wonderful success wherever tried.
Thedruggist explained to us the secret of its re
maskable efficacy: The new preparatir n is a com
pound of lactart (the pure acid ot milk) and honey,
and its effectiveness is owing to the wonderful mucus-dissolving
power of lactart, and the well-known
soothing and healing qualities of honey. The com
bination of a sweet and sour for the cure of throat
troubles has been tried from time immemorial, and
in the lactart and honey the principle is found in
its most effective form. The taste of the new rem
edy is simply delightful, and its curative effect is
testified to by the thousands who have tried and
are now using it. In a climate like ours, where
coughs and eolds are so eternally prevalent, a rem
edy such as Lactart and Honey is simply a nation
al boon. Nothing better has ever been devised for
children. Savs Mr. P. A- Biaisdell, of Boston: "I
desire to add 'my testimonial to the merits of Lac
tart and Honev'f or coughs, colds, hoarseness and
sore throat. It is a sovereign remedy, and no fam
ily can with safety be without a bottle of Lactart
and Honey in the house,"

Mr Oldest Child,
Now six years of age, when an infant six months
old, was attacked with a v'rulent, malignant skin
disease. AU ordinary remt.Mes failing, we called
our family physician, who attempted to cure it;
but it spread with almost incredible rapidity, until
the lower portion of the little fellows person, from
the middle of his back down to his knees was one
solid rash, ugly, painful, blotched and malicious.
We had no rest at night, no peace by day. The
physician did not know then, and does not know
now. what it was. Finally we were advised to try
Cuticura Remedies. Without the knowledge of our
physician I procured a box of Cuticura and a cake
of Cuticura Soap. The effect
Was Simply IflarvelloeiN,
Using the two together, first washing him thor
oughly with Cuticura Soap, then anointing him
with Cuticura. From the first application a change
for the better appeared. The doctor said we had
no further use of him, and ceased his visits, in
three or four weeks a complete cure was wrought,
leaving the littl fellow's person as white and
healthy as though he had never been attacked. In
my opinion your valuable remedies saved his life,
and to-day he is a strong, healthy child, perfectly
welj no repetition of the disease having ever oc
