Who Sell Oleomargarine
HE DENOUNCES DEALERS
FOR SELLING THIS PRODUCT FOR

"OLEO" IS REALLY A VERY
Indianapolis, Feb. 18. "Moonshin
erb" is what 11. E. Barnard, state
those peddlers and hucksters who go
out over the state selling oleomargar
ine for butter. He applies that name
because he says they are violators of
the federal law and that they carry
on their illegal business just as the
moonshine whiskey makers and sell
ers carry on their business in the
Tennessee hills. He does not de
nounce oleomargarine as a food. On
the other hand he says it is a good
food, but he does denounce the meth
ods of these hucksters and peddlers
in selling it.
In his monthly report of the work
done by the food department, Mr.
Harnard says: "Of the thirteen but
ter samples examined nine proved to
be oleomargarine. Most of these sam
ples were purchased from men who
posed as peddlers or hucksters but
who were in reality cleverly disguis
ed agents of illicit oleomargarine
houses. While there can be no possi
ble objection to oleomargarine as food
product, the large profits which can
be made by selling it for butter, and
especially when the seller is willing
to risk detection by agents of the in
ternal revenue department and colors
oleomargarine in imitation of butter
and thus evades the payment of the
10 per cent tax to the government, of
fer so great a temptation that the
oleomargarine business Is to no small
extent conducted by moonshiners in
quite the same way as the illegal
whiskey business. The removal of
the tax on colored oleomargarine
would no doubt take away the incen
tive to defraud and tend to place the
oleomargarine business on a better
busities basis. There is no real rea
son why the coloring of oleomargar
ine should be practically prohibited
""by the federal government, when the
coloring of butter and cheese is per
mitted without restriction. It is hoped
that oleomargarine may some time
occupy its rightful place as a legiti
mate food product of undoubted merit
and that its sale for what it is will be
unhampered by any restrictions other
than those which the government
may see fit to impose upon' it for the
purpose of falsing revenue. And even
such a tax should, it would seem, bet
ter be levied upon articles which are
not used as food and consumed for
the most part by the poorer classes.

RICHMOND RATE WAS HIGH
THERE WERE 195 PEOPLE WHO
MET VIOLENT DEATHS IN THE
STATE THAT MONTH, INCREASE
55 OVER DECEMBER, 1908.
Indianapolis, Feb. 18. Strange as
it may seem, the highest and lowest
death rate in the cities having a
population of 1,000 or over during
December were both found in the
northwest coiner of the state. East
Chicago, in Lake county, had a death
rate of 33.3 for each thousand of pop
ulation, an enormous rate. This was
by far the highest in the state. Then
Michigan City came along with the
smallest reported death rate for De
The monthly bulletin of the state
board of health for December has
just been issued, and it gives inter
esting figures on the death rate for
December. The figures for the cities
having more than 10.000 population
are as follows:

third of the state had the lowest
death rate, 11.2. The central section
had a rate of 13.4, and the southern
section had 11.6.
Birth Rate in the State.
The north part of the state carried
off high and low honors in the birth
rate for December. St. Joseph coun
ty had the highest birth rate, 27.8 and
Steuben had the lowest, 8.2. The total
births in the state for December were
4,105. Of these 2,136 were males and
1,969 were females. The total birth
rate for the state was IS. 3 per 1.000
population. This an excess of 7 over
the death rate. Of the total nuber of
births 4,038 were white and 67 ne
groes. It is interesting to note that the to
tal death rate for the cities of the
state was 15.1, while the total rate
among the rural population of 1.682,
240 was 10.4.
There were 105 violent deaths in In

A Water Telescope.
Norwegian fishermen use a water
telescope to ascertain the position of
the herring shoals. This is the way
to make the water telescope:
Procure a tube made of tin and fun
nel shaped about three aDd a half feet
long and ten inches in diameter at the
largest end. It should be wide enough
at the top to take in the observer's
eyes, and the inside should be painted
black. At the bottom, or wide end. a
clear, thick piece of glass must be in
serted, with a little lead in the form
of a ring to weight the tube. When
the instrument is immersed in clear
water It is astonishing how many
fathoms down the observer can see.

Hailing One Is the Same as a
Declaration of War.
THEY ARE INSOLENT ROGUES
Sneers end Caustie Advice Are Show
ered Upon These Who Engage Them.
On Wet or Festal Days the Cabbies
Spurn These Who Want to Ride.
Among Ar?lo-Saxons there is a gen
eral and instinctive desire to do busi
ness on the basis of an entente cor
diale. In Paris the hailing of a cab
man is looked on by both parties to
the transaction as an implied declara
tion of war. The cabman takes your
measure, and you take his number if
you are wise. At once he will give
you a reason to remark that he has a
rooted and premeditated objection to
drive you where you wish to go. Per- ;
haps he prefers the opera quarter be- .
cause it is central, or should the weath- ;
er be flue his heart is probably set '
upon driving in the Bois, while you .

ishly and rudely.
A foreigner alighted recently from ;
the Calais train at the Northern rail- .
way station in Paris and ordered a ;
typical Parisian cnbman, bloated, pale
and absinth soaked, to drive him to
the Kue Bluroet. which is a street in
the relatively distant Vaugirurd quar- ;
ter. "Peut on habiter la Rue Bloinet?"
("Is it possible to Inhabit the Kue
Bloinet?") exclaimed the ragged ruf
fian lu an epigrammatic note of dis
dain which would have done honor to
But it Is when tbe Paris cabman has
once started on his "course." a war
path in the strict sense of the term,
that he proves to what a limitless ex
tent lie is the enemy of mankind. His '
hatred of the bourgeois." the "man ia
the street," in spite of and Indeed be
cause of his being a potential client,
is expressed at every yard. He con
stantly tries to ruu him down, which
makes strangers to Paris accuse the
Paris cabman of driving badly, while
in point of fact he is not driving at
all, but playing with miraculous skill

geous of which are Ours!" ("Bear!")
aud "Fourneau:" ("Oven!"), the latter
containing a subtle double meaning,
intelligible only to those who have
Paris "argot" or slang at their finger
ends and too long to explain.
Tbo cabman's wild career through
the streets, the constant wavering and
slashing of his pitiless whip, his mad
cap hurtlements and collisions, the
frenzied gesticulations which he ex
changes with his "fare." the panic
stricken flight of the agonized women
Vihose lives be has endangered, the
ugly rustics which the public occasion
ally makes at him with a view to
lynching him. the sprawlings and fall
ings of his maddened, hysterical, starv
ing horse, contribute as much as any
thing to the spasmodic intensity, the
electric blue fire diablerie, which are
characteristic of the general move
ment of Paris.
All that can be said in mitigation of
the Paris cabman's method is that
"he has them in the blood." Every
Parisian (and the cabman is no excep
tion) has tbe soul of a dictator and
the spirit of an artist. To exercise au
tocratic power and. failing this, to" en
joy the maximum of personal freedom
from all restraint, moral or social, is
the goal at which ho is ever aiming,
openly or .secretly.
Watch a Paris cabman, for instance,
on a wet day or on some festival oc
casion, such as the New Year, when
there is a big demand for his services.
With what haughty disdain does he
drive along the streets, deaf to every
appeal, refusing every fare, rejoicing
in the discomfort and Inconvenience
he is causing, triumphant in the
thought that at last he has "the bour
geois" at his feet; that the clientele
which be detests and which detests
him is now a humiliated, bemuddled
or bedraggled mob of supplicants
waiting on his will, whom he can en

It is because the Parisian recognizes
in himself a certain community of
sentiment with the cabman in this at

him, though he does not forgive him.

the old poem "Aald Robin Gray," was
not only a delightful conversationalist,
but she was a great story teller.
This gtft made her not only a wel

related in "A Group of Scottish Wo
men" that at a dinner party which
she was giving: to some friends an old
manservant caused forr.e amusement
by sayinj in a perfectly audible un
dertone: "My lady, you must tell another
story. The second course won't be

An inspector one day visited a coun
try school taught by a young lady and
in the course of the lessons said:
"Now. children. I wish you to take
notice of what I do and then write an
account of It."
Then he stepped to the blackboard
and wrote a sentence upon It.
All the chlldreu except one wrote in
effect that the "master" came into the
school aud wrote on the blackboard,
"1 love a good school."
One little girl, however, followed in
structions more literally and complet
