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?

cerning the harmfulness of sulphur

'Solano County. Hal., rose up in rebel

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 nothing is very serious—and that we
give things a value and importance
hopelessly beyond their actual gravity.
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. Wounds heal. Memory
shrouds pain with a kindly mist of

ticipate too much of joy or too much
!of sorrow. But he remembers both

than with feelings either of ecstasy or

cision of the lower court and ordered
the smelting company to obey the
law. •
In 1913 the people again complained
that the injunction was being ignored
jby the smelter, whereupon the au
j thoritles and the company officials
! agreed to leave the question to a
commission of experts.
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
"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.

ment of Agriculture indicating its
position with reference to the sul- j
phuring of fruits.
"California realizes that the Indus- !
try is important. 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.
