WOMEN'S LOOKING FOR TROUBLE By BEAIKICK FAIRFAX If you aro one of those foolish souls who look for trouble, make up your mind at once to right about face and look In the opposite direction from now on. It is a good thing to remember that almost everything reaches its greatest value in anticipation—pleasure and trouble alike, pain and delight as well. Worrying about things doesn't make them one bit easier to bear—but In stead weakens one's powers of endur ance and means that a certain amount of energy which ought to be expended in the actual meeting of a situation has been wasted ill planning how to meet it. The troubles for which one looks very often fail to arrive—but in their ete&d comes others which it takes all of one's strength to bear at the mo ment of their coming. Isn't It tra gically foolish, then, that one bit of strength and force should have been wasted in imagining how one would endure an unpleasant set of situations which one never had to endure? - The girl who is doomed to spend her | summer in the city is very likely to wonder with self-pity how she is go ing to fret through the long, hot, lonely days and the sultry, uneventful even ings. Then perhaps a cold, rainy sum mer arrives where she has to endure an entirely different set of conditions from the one about which she was ■worrying. It is a good idea to remember that ! T?

Prior to tho publication of Food In spection Decision No. 76 (190 7) con cerning the harmfulness of sulphur ous acid, people living in and around 'Solano County. Hal., rose up in rebel lion against the operation of the Selby Smelting and Company's plant. The people produced evidence to show that the sulphurous acid or sul phur dioxide liberated by the smelting plant was'not only destroying the veg etation of the surrounding country but ■was injuring the health of the people. In 1905 the authorities began suit against the smelter. After a stormy litigation the courts held in 1908 that the smelter really was harming the people of Solano County and enjoined It from doing fuitfher injury. Further litigation followed and the people continued to suffer from the action of the sulphurous acid or sul phur dioxide which . escaped the smelting plant until 1912, when the Supremo Court confirmed the de- "I DON'T SUFFER ANY MORE" « _ u Feel Like a New Person," says Mrs. Hamilton.

In looking back over the events of last month, who does not smile at something which then seemed very agonising? Perspective changes the appearance of things greatly. An emo tional nature exaggerates things fright fully at the actual time of their hap pening The poised and balanced na ture doesn't make the blunder of tak ing its own pleasures or its own sor rows too seriously. It knows that nothing lasts—but life Is change and dux and alterations. Since this is so. why agonize over something to-d:i> which doesn't seem very important to-morrow, especially so since you only wear yourself out and leave yourself unable to contend with to-morrow s situation? None of us has any more than just a certain amount of vital energy at a given moment. What's the use of borrowing to-morrow's store in order to meet to-day's events? What is the , use of running to meet trouble half way when trouble would probably ar i rive soon enough without invitation or encouragement ? Mercifully we all have it within us to forget.

An Investigation was conducted i which began in June, 1913, and ended September. 1914. As a result of this investigation a ' report was made to the bureau of ' mines and published. 1 The commission of experts found that the people were indeed being harmed by the operation of the plant prior to the Injunction. Their com plaints had been justified. The sulphurous acid which escaped from the refining smelter caused the destruction of tho vegetables and crop plants of the neighborhood. So poisonous is the bleaching agent ] used in the dried fruit industry that , 'he commission found It to be harm j ful to man in the proportion of 3 5 ; parts of sulphurous acid to 1,000,000 parts of air. It was found that two parts of the gas In 1.000,000 parts of air applied for four hours at one time or for ten minutes a day had such an injurious effect upon plant life that it actu ally decreased the yield of barley i studied during the investigation. These facts apparently have not j been withheld from Dr. M. E. Jaffa. He declares: "Those interested are not wedded to the sulpljur process, but it is realized that up to date there has not been offered a process which is practical which can take the place of 'sulphur ing.' "It is thus seen that under existing conditions the sulphuring of some fruits is a necessity if the industry is to be preserved. "(3rapes intended for human con sumption should not be subjected to sulphur fumes," he continues. "Suc cessful drying can be and has been practised without the use of sulphur. "In the case of the apricot and peach the oxidation of the sulphurous compounds to sulphuric (a deadly poison > is slow and sometimes inap preciable, similarly with reference to the apple and pear. "When we consider the grape In this connection there is presented an entirely different state of affairs. "Samples of Thompson seedless grapes and other small grapes have been tested with the result that while the content of sulphurous acid was below the limit indicated by ♦ood In si>ection Decision No. 76, viz., less than 350 miligrammes per kilo, the sulphuric acid per kilo approximated ten times as much. Sulphured grapes are rarely washed or soaked before cooking. They are eaten raw or in cake or bread. In either case there is ingested with the raisin the Injurious acid compounds. "The same is true as regards the desiccated bleached potato." After making these alarming state ments Dr. Jaffa holds the housewife responsible for the abuses to which he refers. "It is true," he declares, "that the fruit grower tries to produce In his output a high degree of coior. If the consumer did not demand intensely yellow fruit there would be no sale for It. "If the consumer did not demand yellow butter there would be no sale for yellow color. "Fruit is colored by the grower so as to get a higher price for his goods.

To maintain its in dustry it is necessary to process the fruit before drying. Sulphuring is the only practical process now available. Hence it must be used. "Sulphuring Is not necessary for all i fruits. The grower is willing to put on the market a less highly colored fruit If the consumer will use it." In other words, declared Dr. Jaffa, the government, however dangerous the use of sulphurous acid may be to the consumer, must not interfere with the welfare of an industry that depends for its success upon its right to employ ingredients injurious to human health.
