LETTER NEVER CAME.
While Resting in a Spacious Pocket It Stirs Up Postmasters THE STOEY OF $15 IN AN ENVELOPE Mayor Herbert Thanks Firemen »ml Friends Who Came to the Renoue of His Burning Home and Saved Him From Great Personal Loss—Preparing for the Inspection of Company lt f First Infantry. Special Correspondence Evening Journal. New Castle, Nov. 29.—Edward Trot ter, a boss blacksmith at the Delaware Ironworks, makes a substantial salary a f his work, and, in fact, is very com fortably situated in this life. His native home is Gloucester. N. J,, aud there his wife resides. As regular as the end of the week comes around Trotter takes three $■» gold pieces from his envelope, obtains a money order, and sends the cash with a message of good cheer to his wife in her riverside home. On Monday, November 21, Trotter went to the post office, went through the usual formality of purchasing, directing, stamping and sealing. Evidently he began to think so Intently about borne that he dropped the important letter in his spacious overcoat pocket instead of the slot for out-of-town mail matter. Day after day passed and he received no "answer" from his wife. Then he wrote to her. She answered and said that she was greatly worried because he had not written on Monday as was his wont and said she had not received the visage of a letter. Then Mr. Trotter proceeded to stir up the dust, warned Postmaster Gordon that he meant business and that the money order letter must be forthcoming or there would be trouble. The postmaster consulted his books and, sure enough, there was the stub of Mr. Trotter's money order for $ 15 to Mrs. Trotter in Gloucester, N. J. Postmaster Gordon began to look worried ; more so than he did on the day that it snowed. The people began to talk about the affair. Postmaster Gordon communicated with the postmaster at Camden and other ]>OHta] authorities. Nobody knew any thing about such a letter. Mr. Trotter is a faithful member of Immanuel church, and during the .Sun day morning service ho reached his hand in his overcoat pocket for something and brought out—-the lost letter. Re gardless of the service that was then iu progress, Mr. Trotter arose and hurried to the home of Postmaster Gordtui 1 , called him out, apologized and held A short love feast with him. The letter was afterward mailed. He Mayor Herbert Grateful to FrlenriM Iu Need. It is said that Mayor Herbert yester day found one pair of shoes which was all left in his cloak room after the des tructive fire at his home on Sunday. The mayor had a splendid assortment of dress suits, besides suits and overcoats made by some of the best American tailors and his loss on these above was over $100. A seal coat belonging to Mrs. Herbert and valued at $200 among the first articles of clothing burned. The mayor yesteiday issued the following letter. Mxvoii's Orne», N ew Castlx.

A Delaware St reel.(Shanty Juke. The editors of the metropolitan blanket sheet which is now issued nearly every evening from a Delaware street shanty made a desperate attempt to be funny yesterday. They said; "The New Castle correspondent of an afternoon paper in Wilmington generally runs high In his arithmetic when numbers are to be men tioned Instead of the BOO who wit nessed the whippings, last Saturday, H'O will very easily cover the the number." It is hard to tell what this author is driving at, but if the editorial hands had stopped oiling the machinery or inking the rollers long enough on Saturday to slip up to the jail yard he could have counted just 275 people enter and exit, just as stated iu the Evenino Journal. H Company's Annual Inspection.

The Sioux Indiana have a legend that is of interest now, telling as it does how an opposing army was put to fight by a shower of meteorites. The legend also explains a peculiar layer of stones found on the shores of the Cannon Ball river. Many years ago the Sioux and Crows met in deadly conflict on the banks of this river. The Crows wore the stronger, so Red Dog, the medicine man of the Sioux, prayed for aid from heaven. The Crows were about to conquer, and Red Dog was just about to give the sig nal for the members of the band to kill themselves when there appeared ominous gathering in the sky. heavens assumed a greenish hue, a few drops of rain fell, and then there came something harder. Pebbles began dashing down upon the fighting Indians, and the pebbles turned to larger stones until they assumed a size were struck, non halls of heaven upon the Crows, but wonderful to relate, not one of the Sioux was lilt by the missiles from the sky. From that day the Sioux were un molested by the other tribes.—Chicago Tribune. an Tlie that meant death to all that Down poured the can OLEO IS DANGEROUS, WAR AGAINST ITS SALE AND MAN UFACTURE. Professor 11. 11. Clnrh, of Albany, N, V., Say. It Is Pull of All Sort, of A .. lugs anil They the Human Veins. The war now bein'» waged through out Pennsylvania \, } me N c tonal Dairy moil's Protective Assn, I against the manufacture and sale of oleomargarine lias developed another phase of the evil incident to the manufacture and con sumption of the product. Its iudigestlbilit.y, its insolubility when made from animal fats, Its liability to carry germs of disease into the human system and the probability of Us eon tainlng.when made under certain patents, unhealthy ingrédients are four of the principal causes advanced, by those who have investigated thoroughly the manu facture of oleomargarine, why its con sumption is injurious to health. Dr. R. D. Clark, of Albany, N. Y.. in his report to the dairy commissioner of NewYorksays: "Before entering upon the argument wo wish to state that wo have investigated the claims of the 'oleo' makers that the weight of the testimony of the medical profession was in favor of its being healthy. This, no doubtüH true a few years ago, but we have made it a point of Inquiry for several years past aud find t hat this opinion was baaed, not as a general thing upon investiga tion, but upon the sanction given the stuff by such eminent chemists as Professor C. F. Chandler aud It. Ogden Doremus. The opinion was also based upon Mege's product, which must bo admitted to be less deleterious to health than most if not all others. Then, too these spurious articles were sold surreptitiously until those whose per sonal interests were incidentally affected, stirred up the (legislature to investigate, that but little or no attention was given to the subject and consequently but little was known about it, also that the physiology, like the chemistry, of fats, until recently has beeh studied whole, ami consequently but little was known of their individual properties." Professor Clark in arriving at his con clusion as to the indigestibility of arti ficial butter describes briefly the digest ive processes of the great variety of food taken by man from the mineral and organic kingdoms. The insolubility of these artificial butters made from animal fats is another potent factor in their indigestibility. In man the digestive process is carried on with greater rapidity than in any of the lower ani mals, and the gastric juice acts upon food from the outside to the centre. The artificial butters made from animal fats, although the oleine aud paimitine are separated as much as possible by pressure, will not liquefy at the stom ach's temperature. These insoluh le fats ♦hen must interfere with digestion in two ways : first, by not being acted upon themselves by the gastric juice; aud second, by being thoroughly mixed with the other foods in the mouth they form an impervious covering to them, thereby preventing the gastric juice from coming in contact with them. The liability of conveying disease germs into the human system through the means of artificial butter Is another of the evils ascribed to oleomargarine by Professor Clark. "Investigations," says he, "are showing that many more dis eases than were formerly supposed communicable from animal to man—con sumption, anthrax, trichinosis, tape worm, glanders, foot and mouth dis ease, cow pox, hydrophobia, etc. The manner in which trichinae can get into artificial butter can easily be seen from the following : When the animal takes cyst containing trichina» into its stomach the cyst is dissolved by the gas tric juice, which sets the trichime free, when it passes out of the stomach Into the intestines, where it develops in Jronff a week to ten days. The young WeHke then make their way through cdlijmcUve tissues to the muscles. Tricntffa» are found in hogs, cattle and sheep, and as those animals are killed during the migratory period the caul fat would doubtless contain the parasite. It is alleged by the makers of artificial butter that the fat from animals dying Liable to be Carried lute " ; I a h as a are a from disease could not be used in making these artificial butters, as they would stink and taint ihe product and that de odorization would not remove the odors. This is false, for we have tasted and smelled oil made from horses aud dogs picked up in tVie streets dead from dis ease, and It had no unpleasant taste or appearance; iu fact, tasted as sweet as pure dried butter fat. And. too, the suspicion is growing that these oils go into artificial butters, else why such pains to render a sweet, clear oil from dead horses and dogs Ï" The ingredients used in making arti ficial butter or iu preparing the fats and oils for the same are next touched upon, and Professor Clark claims In his exami nation of the various patents on, tile in the Patent Office to have discovered the following powerful acids as being used : Sulphuric, nitric, benzoic, salicylic, etc., and such alkalies as caustic soda, bicar bonate of soda, carbonate of ammonia, saleratns and salsoda, and such drugs as sugar of load, carbonate of potash, nitrate of soda, sulphate of soda, borax, nitre, etc., together with',a number of other easily decomposed ingredients. The effects of small, greatly diluted acids according to eminent authorities, are t hat when used for too long a time the appetite and digestion are finally injured, and a series of pathological conditions result.
