Solicitor Shows Increase of
25 Per Cent in Disregard
of Regulations.
An increasing tendency to lolatlons
of the pure food law Is Indicated by
tho annual report of the solicitor of
the Department of Agriculture issued
today. The solicitor, George P. McCabe,
notes that 1,421 violations -were reported
to the department during the year,
an increase of 25 per 'cent over the
previous year, and of 17 per cent more
than the fiscal year 1910. Out of "41
cases prosecuted, 381 resulted In con
victions. At the end of the year 407
cases were pending. - ""
The courts displayed disposition to
more severity In punishing violations
of the law. The first Jail sentence was
imposed, under the pure foo4 act, and
the maximum fine was Imposed In
twelve cases. The maximum, however,
Is only $300, and the record of Increas
ing frequent violations seems to sug
gest the need of heavier penalties.
This impression is strengthened by
the solicitors statement that "fines
were Imposed in' the criminal cases
amounting to more than J14.O0O." This
small amount of fines Imposed, in so
great a number of cases, under a law
that Is popularly supposed to be of
great public Interest and Importance,
has Impressed some of the friends of
the law with the need for more severe
penalties. ,
This view of the food law's penalties
has been urged from the time of Its
enactment There has been constant
criticism on the ground that even the
most effective administration of the law
could not be expected to produce a re
spectfulvattltude on the part of. persons
tempted to violate It, If the penalties
for conviction were so small as to leave
a lair cnance 01 pront tnrougn vio
lation. -
The great Importance of the legal
work of this office is suggested by the
statement that It Is Intrusted with de
tecting violaUons of, the acts for protec
tion of the national forests, the food
and drug law. the meat inspecUon law,
twenty-eight hour law, animal quaran
tine law, and the Lacey law, to prevent
interstate shipment of game slaugh
tered In violation of State laws.

Full Lenxth Silhouettes of Two Well
Known WaaklBctoa Children.
We reproduce with this article a. num
ber of samples of Mr. Sackett'a work,
which are done almost In the twinkling
ot an eye. This expert has cut sil
houettes of every President of the Uni
ted States since Andrew Jackson, 'in
1S67. Some time ago "Mr. Sackett was
offered $5,000 for an album containing
theso original silhouettes. Mr. Sackett
recalls the fact that the first dollar
he ever earned was for cutting a silhou
ette of General Grant In the year 1S65.
at the Fifth Avenue Hotel. New Tork.
The general was very pleased with
his silhouette, and gave the boy, then
In knee trousers, a silver dollar. ,
Mlhouette of a Debutante.
The art of the silhouette Is over 3.000
years old. The Idea came from seeing;
the shadow profile cast on a -wall and
then traclns the same. During the year
1791 the making of silhouettes was at
Its height. They were then called
shades." During this year the silhou
ette of George Washington was cut from
life, an exact copy of which Is repro
duced here. The original was purchased
by ex-Governor Warfleld, ot Maryland,
In London, for two pounds and ten
shillings, and is stlllln his possession.
So rare is the art. due to the fact
that but tew are experts In the cutting
of a perfect silhouette that both women
as well as men will do well to take advan
tage of D. J. Kauffman'8 generosity ot
free silhouettes of themseves. Onlv a
short time ago a well-known Washing
ton business man spent 'considerable
time and money in order to procure a
