CRIPPLING THE FOOD AND DRUGS ACT.
The Journal of the American Medical Asso
ciation, discussing the McOabe-Wilson-Dunlap
conspiracy to oust Dr. Wiley from the bureau
at Chemistry, says that tho Food and Drugs
-'Act was seriously crippled both by tho inade
quacy of the punishment meted out to its vio
lators aud by tho interminable delay in bring-in-
cases to trial. Good examples of the law's
delay are found in two notices of judgment
recently published. Ono of these records a
cuse in which an olfouso committed in Jauuary,
. 19H), finally came to trial in April, 1912.
The public document giving information about
this case was not issued until Sept. 27th, 1012.
The other case described was one of misbrand
ing committed in August, 1910, rnd brought
to trial in April, 1912. Tho public was givon
information about this case Sept. 27th, 1912.
Both of these were clear-cut cases of misbrand
ing. In one, the defendaut declined to contest
thocharge,and wasletoft'with tho mere payment
of costs; in tho other, a plea of guilty was
entered and a Hue of fivo dollars was imposed.
How much of a doteiront is a law which is so
enforced that it may tako two years or more
for a given case to come to trial and when
finally brought to trial results in a mero nomi
nal fine? One of tho best preventives against
law violation is newspaper publicity. Many
firms of the "largo and respected" typo which,
under present conditiouH, do not hesitate to
misbrand or adulterate foods aud drug, would
think twice about doing so, if thoy found thaf
tho newspapers of tho couutry would give
witlo publicity to their tiial aud convictiou for
such misdemeanors. But tho avorao livo
newspaper does not want" to deal with facts
that have beenrao ancient history before thoy
reach tho public. "Thoro nro more ways of

VACATIONS FOR WORKING GIRLS.
The gentle art of "How to Enjoy a Vaca
tion" is to be taught, by suggestion at least, to
Cincinnati's working girls, if the plans of the
recently formed vacation committee find en
couragement among tho girls themselves. Tho
Vacation committee idea comes from the JOist
where it is said to be in successful operation;
aud thereseems to be no reason why it should
not meet with favor here. A number of yonng
matrons"constitute tho committee and will en
deavor tohavo tho girls cmploycdin thostoresj
offices,.otc., save a portion of their earnings dur
ing tho winter months, placing it in a saviugs
bank, whero it will draw interest.
Tho committe's work will bo tcfind pleas
ant boarding places in tho country close to
Cincinnati, each place to be personally investi
gated by the committee before it is recom
mended. Then, when summer comes and va
cations are possible, tho girls will be given the
addresses of tho accepted place?, ami with
their own money, saved a little at a time
they will be in a position to tako advantage of
low boaiding rates, short journeys aud the
health-giviug air and and fare of the country.
The plan is in no senso a philanthropy; it is
simply an organized effort to holp tho tired
and not-too-woll-paid city working girl acquire
a maximum of renewed health and rest at a
minimum of cost. Times Ttar
