and what is not harmful to the hu
man stomach in the line of chemicals
preservative and otherwise. This is
not Dr. Wiley's first poison squad, his
previous investigations in this line
having been noised abroad, but this
year, instead of selecting his men in
discriminately, the test, when It bo
bins in October, will be made on em
ployes of the Uureau of Chemistry
only. In this way It Is hoped that the
enthusiasm of martyrs will be
brought to the cause through person
The men will be required, however,
to give their word that they will con

predecessors were known to partake
of viands elsewhere a step which,
while not harmful for them, was ex
tremely tough on the experimenter.
The food given at the scientific
boarding house will be the best af

used that in its natural state could
make any healthy person ill. It is
only the chemical additions made by
Dr. Wiley that will cause an occa

it is all done in the interest of sci

Young Men Who Fired Into
House Where Wedding
Was in Progress.
CAMBRIDGE MEN ESCAPE
BRIDEGROOM AND BZST MAN
NARROWLY MISSED BY BUL
LETS ROWDYISM RAMPANT IN
EATON, NEAR MUNCIE.
Muncie, August 11, (Spl.) As a se
quel to the shooting scrape at Eaton
Wednesday night at the wedding of
Miss Sarah King, of that place and
Ralph Taguc. of Cambridge City,
which nearly caused the death of Mr.
Tague and the best man. Roy Paul,
of Cambridge City, Ray Minnich. Roy
Zimmerman and James Osenbaugh,
all well-known young men of Eaton,
were arrested Thursday on a charge
of trespass, fast driving and pointing
deadly firearms. They were fined on
a charge of trespass Thursday and
their trial on the other two charges
is set for Tuesday.
Minnich is said to be the person
who did the shooting and the citizens
of Eaton are considerably wrought up
over the affair. The shooting was
clone after the wedding party had re
tired to an upper room of the house
to escape the attentions of friends
who were bent on riding them about
the streets in a wagon. The shots
which were fired narrowly missed
both Tague and Paul and had they
taken effect their deaths would have
been practically certain.
The charge of trespass was preferr
ed after it was alleged that the three
young men had stolen a freezer con
taining ten gallons of ice cream, which
was to have been served as part of
the refreshments of the wedding

Indianapolis, Aug. 11. It is expected
that the members of the next Indiana
General Assembly will be asked to en
act a law that will prevent the giving
or receiving of rebates on insurance
policies. This is one of the laws
adopted by the New York Legislature,
following the Armstrong investigation,
and more than half of the states in the
Fnion have similar laws.
Of interest to Indiana insurance
companies will be the fact that this
anti-rebate law will furnish the means
of doing away with so-called special
contracts and agency schemes of one
sort and another. For the most part
insurance commissioners of other
states that are trying to eliminate the
special contract, are proceeding under
the law prohibiting rebating.
The law in most states is so worded
a to cover the special contract con
dition. The section relating to anti
rebating is practically the same in all
the States and says, in effect, that
there shall be no discrimination "be
tween the members of the same class
of insurants." Under thjs. insurance
commissioners are stopping the issu
ance of the special contract.
This morning at Whitewater
Friend's Church in the north part of
the city, the Rev. Oliver M. Frazer
will preach his farewell sermon to the
congregation over which he has pre
sided for the last year. Mr. Frazer
announced his retirement following
the controversy that resulted from the
determination of the pastoral commit
tee to displace him because of his al
leged unsoundness of doctrine.
When the matter came before the
congregation, however, today two
weeks ago, the pastoral committee
made no charges against the pastor,
though insisted that he be not recalled
for the approaching year. In spite
of the fact that many members of the
congregation 'were deeply opposed to
the pastor giving up the charge and
they stood ready to uphold him in
any event, the Rev. Mr. Frazer deter
mined that rather than permit a seri
ous breach in the body he would witlv
draw. The retiring pastor likely will
not allude in his sermon today to the
unpleasant things that have arisen,
for he feels that there would be no
benefit to result from a resume of his
which he thoroughly touched upon in
his sermon two weeks ago.
It is reported that the Rev. Mr. Fra
ser has received a call from a
Friends' congregation at New Castle,
and it is understood also that his pas
toral services would be gladly receiv
ed in various other places.
The Iowa Yearly Meeting of Friends
will be lu ld the latter part of this
month and the Rev. Mr. Frazer wi'j
attend the sessions which are to he
held at Oskaloosa. There is consid
erable significance attached to the
fact that the young minister has re
ceived a minute from the monthly and
quarterly meetings and from the quar
erly meeting on ministry and over
sight, w hich endorses him as a prt t.ch
:! of the gospel and permits him go
'n? to the Iowa meeting to perform
v.ueh labors as may seem expedient.
This hearty endorsement coming just
at this time, indicates that the Friends
governing bodies have no complaint
; o offer against the doctrine as ex
pounded by the Rev. Mr. Frazer, for
; were he considered even a trifle un
sound in this respect, no such en
dorsement could be given.

UTTERANCES ARE UNUSUAL
DECLARES HIS UTTER UNBELIEF
IN THE VIRGIN BIRTH OF
CHRIST AND IN HIS BODILY
Cincinnati, Aug., 11. A great deal
of talk has been caused among the
clergy and the laity of the Protestant
Episcopal Church by a letter sent to
Bishop Vincent, of the Southern Ohio
Diocese, by Rev. George Clark Cox,
rector of Calvary Church, Clifton. The
letter was not given out by the Bishop
but was sent, it is persumed, by Mr.
Cox to a church publication in Chica
go and printed in its issue of a recent
date. It is asserted that the letter
was offered to two other church perio
dicals, but was declined on the ground
that, as it was not an open letter, nor
one addressed to a church council, but
was a personal communication to the
Bishop, it was not an epistle for the
public. However, the third paper to
which it was offered published the
The fact that the letter asserts an
unbelief in the virgin of Christ and
His bodily resurrection, and contains
other declarations in reference to the
creed and ritual of the Episcopal
Church, at once caused many who
read it to believe that there was no
escape for Rev. Mr. Cox from a trial
for heresy. Inquiry, however, among
those best qualified to speak revealed
