The Legal Limitation of the Hourof

factories Within the past year abu
one hundred employers have been prosecuted
cuted In the borough of Manhattan forviolating
violating this provision They defendedupon
upon the ground that the enactment wasunconstitutional
unconstitutional Upon the announcement
ment of the decision against them twentysix
six of the defendants pleaded guiltyThe
The Court suspended sentence in eachof
of these cases upon the understandingthat
that the defendants will obey the law inthe
the future and a similar course willprobably
probably be pursued in regard t all thoprosecutions
prosecutions which have been institutedup
up to the present time Any future violations
lations of the law however will be rigorously
ously punishedThat
That portion of the statute which wasattacked

Cold Tea for Typhoid FrvrrFrom
From tin WtHitngion PottWhile
While earning out a series of experiments toascertain
ascertain whether the mlcrococcus melltenslswhich
which Is supposed to be the cause of Malta feverwould
would survive In milk when added to tea MajorJQ
JQ UcNaught of the Royal Army Medical Corpsrecently
recently made an Investigation Into the aotlon ofcold
cold tea upon the bacillus typhosus the germ whichcauses
causes typhoid feverThe
The results of his experiments showed that Infive
five hours the mlcrococcus melltenils was completely
pletely destroyed and In the case of the bacillustyphosus
typhosus contact with the cold tea for four hoursgreatly
greatly diminished the number of the bacilli andat
at the expiration of twenty hours none of the badlllcould
could be recovered from the teaHo
He considers the experiment of very great Interest
eat with reference to the question of the use of coldtea
tea u a substitute for water In the soldiers canteens
teens as a safeguard against typhoid InfectionWhen
When It Is remembered that the Chinese whohabltuslly
habitually use cold tea as a beverage In place ofwater
water are almost Immune from this dread diseasewhich
which destroys so many Americans sad Europeans
penal may we not reasonably suppose In view ofthe
the experiments above mentioned that the drinking
of tea In place of water may have the effect of destroying
stroying the germs thus making them Imniuue tothe
the disease
