THE WASHINGTON TBIES, SUNDAY; MAY 31: 191" 11 WOOD AND DRUG LABELS STILL GOOD Manufacturers Given Year to Exhaust Stocks Bearing Outlawed Guaranty. A revised food Inspection decision Just announced pives manufacturers an ad ditional year In which to exhaust the jniaranty legends used on food and drug packages. Instead of abolishing after May 1, 1515. the present legend, "Guar anteed br fname of guarantor under the food and drugs act." the effective date Is postponed until May 1. 3316, In order to give manufacturers time to dis pose of stocks on hand. The Secretaries of the Treasury. Ag riculture, and Commerce have declared the guaranty legend to be deceptive, because many people believed that all articles so labeled had toeen examined and approved by the Government, whereas use of the legend has been en tirely voluntary on the part of manu facturers. These officials have made It plain that the Government never guar antees the ivholesomeness or purltv of food or drug products. The extension of t'me was granted at the request of manufacturers who de clared they would suffer a heavj loss !f not permitted to exhaust the supply of labels on hand. Manufacturers who have no old stocks of labels, however, are advised that they may label their goods In compliance with the new regu lations now, and many manufacturers nre expected to abolish the label at once Mills Held for Grand Jury on Murder Charge HOCTCV7LLE.

Three-Mile Stretch of Potomac, Neglected by Washington, Ideal for Sumfner Use by Canoeists Four Forest Fires Rage, Through Maine Woods BANGOR, Me., May 31. Four sepa rat and destructive forest fires are sweeping all before them in eastern Maine today, and nearly ;oo men have been shipped out of this city to aid In lighting them. None of them Is under control, and it is believed that nothing save a drenching rain can check their progress. Three of the fires are near Kingman, and already have covered a stretch of heavily wooded timber five miles long and a mile wide. A fire m Washington county, near Oherryfield. has covered a stretch over live miles long and three miles wide. Burning embers are belnc carried for miles, greatly Increasing the danger of the fires The forests are unusually dry for this season, and It is feared that the fires will cause the loss of thousands of dol lars worth of standing timber.

Tho same shiftless abandonment of property which disfigures tho entrance to Conduit road, from the foot ef Twenty-third and M streets to where the road crosses the street car track, blotches tho river front for perhaps a mile on the District side. Happily, the chosen course for canoeists Is the Vir ginia side, but there is no reason, ex cept the unsightly scenery, why they f-hou'd not remain on the District Ide for some distance Compared with the whole three-mile distance, tho unpleasant portion is slight and not very hard to avoid, but It Is a lasting disgrace that It is on the District shore, and neither In Mary land nor In Virginia, where there would be less pressing call for its Improve ment. River Unquestionably Safe. The river Is unquestionably safe e tween Chain and Aqueduct bridges. Here thero are no rapids, no whirlpools, no eddies, and no current to speak of There are hundreds of days and even- lngs when tho river Is as placid u a lake, and when a soft, cool breeze, that haunts no portion of the hcat-rldden city, is to bo found. Then every canoe In the boathouses Is out, everyone makes for the shady Virginia shore, and there, under over hanging trees, the canoes are plentiful. But the river Is wide, and there Is room for many more. As evening comes, on account of a few small launches which occasionally puff noisily up and down, overy canoe must have a light. Some times It la a Chinese lantern, and some times Just an electrio flash, but the ef fect is cauaiiy picturesque.- Present Throngs Only Fraction of Those That Could Find Safe, Healthful Pleasure on River's 'Expanse. sort of an omnibus clausp, that can be read aloud to thoso who cannot read, ana personally by thosa who cart read, with a common understanding as a re suit, is this: If it looks bafl DtWT GO OUT. - . There are hundreds of calm, sunshiny normal days; in fact, they are in the majority why is Jt that the man who makes up his mind to go canoeing wiTT do so or die in the attempt and he usually does, the girl with him. Perhaps the person best qualified to talk about canoes and canoeing is Pat rick Albert Dempsey, some time coacn of the Georgetown crew, veteran water man wise in water ways, whose broad, low boathouses snuggle close up to tne Aqueduct bridge. Hundreds of canoes have gone out from bis buildings, thousands of trips are made up the river from Ms h erase alone, yet. when ne was asueo. wnat uie percentage Of acciacnis was. laughed! "Percentage of accidents why, there Is none! It Is too small to no counted at all. Thousands of peoplo go cut on that river In the course of a season, thousands of times, yet there- Is one accident, perhaps. In a season." Some of the most valuable and common-sense Information ever listened to was then and there delivered by Sir. Dempsey. Would Teach Children. "The trouble Is with most people," he said, "not that they are afraid ot wa ter, but that they are not enough afraid of water. If they were really as afraid of water as they are of fire and air. .11 m. winni1,vai flftrarflv tn the reader, but the question, "Is the I they -would have four swbnmlng pools. r!vr reallv safer keeDS Every person to whofh the river is mentioned makes this same query, and It has, perhaps, to do with the fact that the Potomac Is practically shunned by Washlngtonians. Where there are many hundreds of canoeists and people In boats there should be thousands. What is the answer? From personal experience, day In and day out, In stormy weather and calm weather, the writer can stJe thatthe river Is safe. This means that IN THE DISTRICT MENTIONED there are no rapids no whirlpools, no eddies, and no overpo'werlng current. The river Is eafe, all right, all right It's the peoi-le themselves who are notsaffe that is the answer. The accidents never hare been tne fault of the river, but of the individual, invoatlentlon of eery accident that has ever occurred on the river (and there! are very few at this point.' xvlll Prove that tho fault was with the Individual. One large, enveroping. general ruic. one In each section of the city. Swim ming would he free and compulsory. But they are not afraid of water, only when they gt near It But that dos not eliminate the water, nor the prob ')le necessity of being upon It some day. ".Fire, air, earth, and water. Four elements, yet there are only three of which we take account at least hero In Washington. We have a fire depart ment, we put up railings In public places, since we know that we cannot yet fly, and we protect those who wish to cast themselves repeatedly upon the ground by placing them In a public In stitution. Tet we make no provision for water. The child Is taught that fire burns by being burnt, and he Is taught the values of earth and air by many falls, yet no Instruction Is given him as to the qualities of water in relation to his own body. "A a result, the normal, sensible man, who would not get up on a horse and stand on his head on Its back for a hundred dollars, will get In a. canoe and do approximately the same thing-. A canoe is made to sit in, not to stand up or move about in, just as a horse's back Is made to sit upon, not to stand upon, or roll upon, hy the perfectly In experienced rider. "The lack Is not with the younger people and chl dren." ho continued, "but with the city government. There should be four district swimming pools In the four sections of the city. There children should be" taught not only to caro for themselves In the water, but should be instructed in the manipula tion of the smaller pleasure boats. Only Ignorant Take Chances. "It is a crime that swimming is not free and compulsory. It Is as much the part ot the education of the indi vidual as study of books. All of the accidents on the water come from one kind of Ignorance or another. Biver jnen and men whose lives are spent on or -near smalt, bodies of water live Just us Ion as other people. If not longer. Tho more thoy know about water, the mora they respect It. The young fool takes chances dally that the rivermen would never take in all of bis life. "Automoblllng has killed many people, yet there seems to be no concerted movement toward stopping automobll lng. The State merely takes' preventa tive measures, posts warnings, makes rules and Informs the general public what to do and what not to do. The result is a minimum loss of life. "Tct the water ways, which offer the most delightful and really harmleas source of pleasure, are neglected bv the Government, spoken of only in re lation to the accidents which occtfr therein, and are left to be not a heJo and comfort to the hot city man and woman, but a trap for the unwary.' The rigid supervision of owners of the boat houses on this portion ot the river and of the clubs located thereon, has much to do with tho small fact that there are scarcely any accidents at all. The right to refuse to rent a canoe Is reserve?! by the boat owners. Lincoln's Tomb Decorated SPRINGFIELD. III., May 31.
