ENLISTED FROM EXPERT TOPERS.
Tempting Wine List At
tracts. Many to Scien
tific Feast, Despite
Germs and Acids.
KENTUCKY SENDS VOLUNTEER
Washington, Dec. 5 Applications for
seals at Doctor Harey W. Wiley's odl
cial nnd scientific wine party poured Into
the Bureau of Chemistry of the Agricul
tural Department to-day from all over the
country. Such is the Interest In the corn
Ins great experiment that not even the
fact that they may be compelled to con
sume whole quarts of champagne has de
terred self-sacrificing individuals from of
fering themselves upon the altar of sci
ence. When Doctor Wiley, chief chemist of
the bureau, rhall "open wine" at his party
on October 1 it is expected that the scien
tific fervor of his guests will know no
bounds and their scientific thirst no slak
ing. The success of the series of borax and
'formaldehyde dinners gien to the "poI-son
squad club" at the Government boarding
house was so great that the doctor decid
ed to follow it up with several salicylic
add wine suppers, limited to a dozen
quests, and gee what further could be
done for science.
The new entertainment, it is understood,
will be a progressive affair that is, the
guests will progress through a wine Hit
and see who can discover the most sali
cylic' acid, as tho "poison squad" dlnors
did with the borax and formaldehyde bill
of fare.
Everybody who has heard about It says
It ought to be "an awfully lovely party,"
and ever since word got out that volunteer
guests were wanted for it there has been
a sound from the Department of Agricul
ture as of many men stepping on each
other's heels.
"Salicylic acid," says the doctor. "Is a
preservative used only In 1qulda, such as
wires, beers and sirups, and it is with
this drug that wo will make our forth
coming tests."
CHOICEST DRINKS ON IJST."
The wlnea to be explored include cham
pagne, Burgundy, Madeira, port, sherry,
cognac, all the cordials and many other
beverages, imported and domestic
Just who, the twelve martyrs are who
Kill be asked to drink Urge quantities of
wine has not yet been decided by Doctor
Wiley, but he has a wide choice. There is
so1 much talent around now and so many
good poison detectors who bave not steady
drinking jobs. Washington Is full of them.

never drink' anything stronger than cold

whisky being drunk In this country to
day, sir, than a self-respecting Republic
ought to stand for. I have endeavored to
abolish It wherever I found it, and If
you will add whisky to the list I think I
am ths man you're looking for. In the
Interest of science, I would persevere, no
matter how long the experiment lasted or
how large the amount of liquor required
to be consumed at each sitting."
"My dear sir," acrs another, "I have
been drinking whisky and things for sev-cnty-flve
years, and If there Is any kind
of acid or fusel oil I couldn't detect I
haven't jet met up with It. From my
long experience I think I ought to make a
valuable member of your 'Happy Days'
class."
"Dear man," offers another, " as a body
that knows the difference between Scotch
and creosote. I tender my services. I
don't caro how much sallcjlic acid I get
Into my system."
SLOW POISONIMJ A JOT.
"Dear sir," says a fifth, "I nra quite
willing to submit to slow poisoning. If
you'll make it slow enough."
On the shelves of Doctor Wiley's offlca
are rows of tall-necked wine bottles and
long, low, rakish bottles labeled "Rum"
and "Ale." They are for Investigation.
A rumor that the salicylic acid test waa
to be made by water only got abroad to
day, and for quite a whilo there was noth
ing doing about the altar of science.
Later, however, it was learned that tho
acid was to be disguised in real wine, and
then there was a sudden rise in the mar
tyr market.
The rumor that the members of the
"poison squad" who can successfully re
peat the words "salicylic acid" at the close
of the first day's experiment will be given
a prizq, proves to be incorrect. So far
as is knowri no special classes for mixed
drinks will' be formed.
Special attention will be paid to the al
leged falsely labeled foreign wines. The
manager of the Spirits Department of the
army and navy stores, one of tho leading
wine experts of Europe, has declared to
Doctor Wiley that no chateau or vine
yard wines are shipped to the United
States, and that the "American people
drink nothing but labels."
Doctor Wiley's scientific class probably
will be given a special course In labels.
After the first fw lessons the class prob
ably will be able to tell at a flash the dif
ference between a yellow label and a sil
ver flask.
The experiments may last for weeks
with the proper Intervals between times
Considerable Interest has been manifest
ed as to whether Doctor Wiley will invite
to the banquet Mr. Wolf Weinman of Ho
boken, who was 103 years old week before
last, and who declared at the time' that
never since he was a boy had he drunk
an thing but wine and beer. He attrib
utes his longevity to tho use of those bev.
er(tf5.
Doctor Wiley's "Hanov Days" class will
proBibly form a century club at the close
of their supper, series.
