New Yorker's Enthusiasm Far Abova the Ordinary. F. Ambrose Clark, stepson of Bishop Potter and an enthusiastic patron ot kteeplechasing and hunting, for sev eral seasons has aroused the Interest bf New York rncegoers as much by the disregard he seem* to have for hla neck and bones as for the fair amount of success he has had In riding in open steeplechases. The field-stand idea of Mr. Clark was epitomized at Belmont Park, where the amateur Jockey got a bad fall Just before the field stand from hla horse The Bow ery, when a spectator, probably from the Bowery, remarked, "Just t'lnk ol him doin' dat and him wort flfteea million bones." The fall brought to the surface ex act measurement o* Mr. Clark's en thuslasm, for wh»e he found his horse was lame after he caught and •remounted him, and he could not gc bn In the race, the "gentleman jock walked off to the Jockeys' quart Nnderly rubbing his shoulder, friend asked If he had been hurt lu th* fall, and Mr. Clark responded that he wsi not sure, but his shoulder felt tueer. The friend suggee nation to see how serious it. » Injury] might be, and Mr. Clark indoracd the plan at once by exclaiming, "That's It, send for a vet." Another suggestion that a surgeon might be better failed however, and It was a horse doctor who conducted the examination, which rssured the cross-country rider thal his bones were intact. A fall at Morris Park a week ago f at Mr. Clark out Of the running with a broken collarbone, but he has been as constant as ever In his attendance At the steeplechase races there, with hndiminisked enthusiasm. * I xaml Would Learn New Songs. A Kansas City lawyer has in hit f fflee a small boy who is addicted te he whistling habit. The lawyer tries to stop the whistling, but he is only partially successful. The noise both er* him greatly, but as the lad is a pood office boy his employer is loatb to discharge him and gets along witl him the best he can. Monday the boj said to the lawyer: "Mr. Blank, kin I draw half a dol Jar? I want to «30 to the minstre.' fchow." "Any new songs being sung In thf show?" asked the lawyer. "Yep, some dandy ones." "PU tell you what I'll do," said thi lawyer, after a pause. "If you won't po to the minstrel show I'll let yot draw half a dollar and make you i present of another half."

"Is It possible you don't remember Me?" said the healthy, happy-looklng young iqatron as she stepped up to Dr. j'enry Russell, who was alighting from Ms carriage in front of a patient's door. There was a shade of annoy ance on the woman's face as she rpoke, mingled with a look of grati tude. half reproachfully, "you were the one who operated on me for appendicitis, made me take that horrid ether and called every day to ask the other doc tor how I was getting along—and still, you don't know me when you see me on the street This Is the third time I have met you and you never even condescenoed to bow." The doctor apologized and said: 'Really, I have the best reason In the world for not knowing you. To be »ure I performed the operation, but that was the only Urne I saw you. Do ■yon realize that a patient in bed, wasted by Illness, looks very different from the recovered patient on the street? I knew that your eyes and hair are dark, but that's absolutely the only description I could give of you. I did not know »whether you were a tall or a short woman. I did not •know whether you were naturally a Iplump or a slight woman. Neither did I know whether you were a vivacious W a phlegmatic sort of person. You must remember that a doctor who has seen you only once or twice in Illness has never seen the real you, but only a shadow of yourself."—New York Press. And to think," she continued SCIENCE NOTES.

T. Weise. The metallic particles in mass are elec troplated with iron, by a special appar atus, and can then be separated by any magnetic method. The use of milk of lime for quickly aDd effectively extinguishing fires in coal mines is recommended by inspec i « Wolfgang Kummer, a German. The igwestion is not new, but has been tested with satisfactory results. Tko emulsion—which can be used with hand or power pumps—runs into and fills the crevices of the coal or min eral. The efficacy of bomb firing in break ing up hail storms has been questioned. M. Vidal, the originator of the plan, claims new evidence of its value from a recent severe storm that rapidly swept down from the Bernese Alps through the Rhone valley and over the north end of Lake Leman as far as the Lake of Neuchâtel. The entire district was badly damaged by the hail except two small villages from which bombs were thrown. A French physicist, A. Baldit, has found that the odor corpuscles affect the leakage of electricity from electri fied bodies, and he proposes to use thi3 discovery for studying the character of odors and the part they play in plants. In his experiments, performed in un favorable weather, a rod of resin and an electroscope were enclosed In a glass jar, when the admission of va nilla odor sensibly lessened the loss of electricity from the charged rod. DELICACIES IN THE WOODS. Frozen Anta Better Than Lemonade —A Week's Fare of Red Squirrels Skilled men aae employed to travel through the Maine woods on snowshoes all winter for the purpose of estimat ing the value of the standing growth and to pick out sites for lumber camps. Through information furnished by these men the proprietors of the timber lands are able to fix the stumpage /ate* to be charged. Cruisers Is the name by which such men are known. They go for weeks at a time without seeing a human be ing. They carry their food in packs strapped to their backs, and sleep un der brush shelters before open fires built among snowdrifts. "There Is no need of a healthy man's going hungry in the Maine woods," said Orion Southworth, who has acted as head cruiser for Wm. Engel & Co. for the past right years. "Give a crui ser a good gun, a thick blanket, a small axe, a frying pan and a few matches, and he can pick up his own living anywhere in the spruce forest. "Last winter when I was reduced to two pounds of hardtack and four pounds of bacon, a sneaking bobcat crept up on me while I slept and stole all my bacon from a limb above my head, compelling me to forage for al most a week. I lived like a king, hav ing three meals a day and coming out to the nearest camp In fine condition. "My diet was fat red squin-els dres sed and washed and roasted on the end of a limb hung above the frying pan, which rested on hot coals. It took from six to ten squirrels to make a square meal but the meat was sweet and tender, and the fat which dripped from the cooking bodies lut© the hot frying pan was just the food I need ed to fortify me from the cold.* "When I was cruising ^n Michigan one winter I learned that tne State had protected hedgehogs by law, so as to have them increase and furnish food for the cruisers, but I am not fond of hedgehog flesh as a steady diet Hedgehogs are lazy and stupid crea tures that may be killed with a club. Their meat Is sweet and white and ten der, but the fat portions of the bodies carry a parasite as big as a horseshoa nail. "In my cruising I have eaten and relished nearly eveiTthing that walks or creeps or swims or flies in Maine. I have probed open springs of water until I have secured enough fat frogs for a meal. I have shivered with cold and hunger until I have caught a mass of pickerel through the Ice. "1 have eaten and relished roasted bobcat, muskrat, skunk, fox, mink, fisher and bear. I have filled my pock ets with shelled acorns and beechnuts from the hoards of chipmunks and been glad to eat them. "Often when hungry and feverish from long tramps I have chopped holes Into the sides of dead birches and pick ed out the great frozen ants and made a lunch of their bodies. They have a pleasing sour taste which Is very re freshing when one Is thirsty. On tb whole I think frozen ants are mo pleasing than the iced lemonade 01 buys at the drug stores."

One well known New York woman has discovered, like some others of her sex, that It does trot pay to be too curious. One of the old family re tainers Is a Scotchman named Wll 11am, who does not believe In glossing over the truth for the sake of sparing his listener's feelings. The woman in question, although possessed of con siderable charm of manner, is not a beauty and knows it. Her husband, recently deceased, Was a remarkably handsome man, and bis wife was one of his slncerest admirer*. One day when she was looking st her hus band's picture on the mantel in the sitting room William was fussing around the grate and in a moment of impulse she asked; "William, what do you think made such a handsome man as Col. S. marry such a plain woman as me?" William looked from the portrait to the speaker, meditated a second, and answered: "Must have been God's will, ma'am. * Slavery is an atrocious debasement of huma'' natura —Franklin. * The imperial ettna. lu China Is the pan Is now over 4fiO<) miles. kindest 111 the world. . . MEW FO > x People now demand the right to know exactly what they eat. To be told by maker or retailer that the food is "pure" is not satisfactory. Candy may contain "pure" white clay or "pure" dyes and yet be very harm ful. Syrups may contain "pure" glu cose and yet be -quite digestible and even beneficial. Tomato catsup may contain a small amount of salicylic or boracic acid as a necessary preserva tive, which may agree with one nud be harmful to another. Wheat flour may contain a portion of corn flour and really be improved. Olive oil may be made of oo'.tou seed oil. Butter may contain beef suet and yet be nutritious. The person trim buys and eats must protecPhimself and family, and lie has a right to. and now demands, a law under which he can make Intelligent a selection of food. Many pure food bills have been in troduced nnd some passed by State legislatures; many have been offered to Congress, but all thus far seem ob jectionable. It has seemed difficult for politicians to formulate a satisfactory bill that would protect tbe common people and yet avoid barm to honest makers and prevent endless trouble to retailers. No government commission or officer lias tbe right to fix "food standards" to de fine what tiie people shall and shall not eat, for wliat agrees with one may not agree with another and such act would deprive the common citizen of his per sonal liberty. The Postum Cereal Co.. Ltd., perhaps the largest makers or prepared foods in the world, have nat urally a close knowledge of the needs of the people and the details of the busluess of the purveyors, (the retail grocer» and. guided by this experience have prepared n bill for submission to Congress which Is inteuded to accom plish tbe desired ends, nud inasmuch . ns a citizen of the U. S. has a right to j food protection even when be enters another State It is deemed proper that the gov't take control of this matter and provide a national law lo govern all the States. A copy of the bill is herewith reproduced. Sec. 1 governs tbe maker whether tbe food is put up in small packages sealed, or In barrels, boxed or otherwise. Sec. 2 governs tbe retailer, who may open a barrel and sell the food In small quantities. When be puts tbe goods into a paper bag be must also enclose a printed copy of tbe statement of tbe maker which was affixed to tbe original pkg. and inasmuch as tbe re tailer cannot undertake to guarantee tbe statement of Ingredients be mast publish the statement of tbe makers and add his own name and address as a guarantee of his selling the food as it is represented to him which relieves the retailer of responsibility of the truth of the statement and throws it npou tbe maker, where it properly be longs. The remaining sections explain them selves. The Postum Cereal Co.. Ltd., for ex ample. have from tbe beginning of it« existence printed on the outside of each and every pkg. of Postum and Grape Nuts food a truthful and exact state ment of what the contents were made of hi order that the consumer might kuow precisely what he or she was eat ing. A person desiring to buy. for in stance. strictly pure fruit jelly and willing to pay the price has a right to expect uot only an equivalent for the cost but a further right to certainly as to what he eat*. Or he may be willing to buy at less cost a Jelly made part of fruit Jnices, sugar and a portion of glucose. But he must be supplied with truthful infori n atiou of the ingre dients and be permitted touse his pê7 soual liberty to select his own food a scciiralely. , The people .mve allowed the slow murder of infmits and adults, hy tricky makers of food, drink and drugs to go on about long euough. Duty tooueself, family and uatiou demauds : lia t every man and wotuau Joiu lu un organized movement to clear our people from this blight. You may not be able to go per sonally to Washington to impress your Congressman, but you cau, in a most effective way tell him by letter how (Jon desire him to represent you. j. Remember the Congressman is in (Congress to represent the people from his district aud if a goodly number of citizens express their views to him, lie secures a very sure guide to duty. Re member also that the safety of the people Is assured hy Insisting that the will of the people be carried out. ami not the machinations of the few for seiti«li interests. This pure'food legislation Hs a pure movement of the people for public pro tection. It will be opposed only by those who fatten their pockets by de ceiving aud injuring the people. There fore, if your Representative in Con gress evudes his patriotic duty hold him to strict accountability and if ueces»ury demand equitable aud bouest service. This in a very different condition than when a faction demands class legisla tion of tiie Congressman. Several years ago the butter interests of the couutry demanded legislation to kill the oleomargarine industry and by power of organization forced class leg lslntiou really unworthy of a free peo ple. Work people wanted beef suet butter because it was cheap and better thau much unclean milk butter, but the .dairy interests organized and forced the legislation. The law should have pro vided that pkgs. of oleomargarine bear tbe statement of Ingredients and then let people who desire purchase it for just what it is, and not try to kill It by a heavy tax. Manufacturers some times try to force measures in their It Is an old and a true reflection that few people can stand prosperity, re flects the .American Cultivator. It ha? often been the case with those whe have endured poverty with cheerful ness and with a light heart have be come morose, captious, exacting and generally disagreeable when they havr accumulated riches, and have not, oi course, Increased their own sum ol happiness thereby. Possession doe? not invariably bring felicity, and men like children, soon tire of the baubi* for which the stretched out eagei hands, and look for something mort dazzling to entertain them for the pas» Ing hour. Nations, like individuals, are power ful in the degree that they command the sympathies of their neighbors. A dancing school is to be added to the University of Chicago.

Witness tbe anti injnnctlon hill by which labor unions seek to tie the hands of our courts and prevent the Issue of any order to re strain tbe members of that trust from attacking men or destroying property. Such a bill is perhaps the most Infam ous insult to our courts and the com mon people ever laid before Congress and the Representatives In Congress must he held to a strict accountability for their acts relating thereto. But when bills come before Congress that are drawn In the Interest of all tbe people they should receive the active personal support of the people nnd the representatives he Instructed by tbe citizens. The Senators also shonld be written to and Instructed. If. there fore. you will remember your privilege and duty yo" will at once —now— write to your Congressman and Senator on this pure food bill. Clip and enclose the copy herewith presented and ask them to make n business of following It through the committee considering it. Urge its being brought to a vote and requesting that they vote for It. Some oppressively Intelligent and carping critics may say this is simply au .ttdvßftisemeut for Postum and . j TO 'REQUIRE TEXT OF PtrRE FOOD ErtX. Tf it meets approval cut It out. sign name and address and send to yonr Rep resentative In Congress. Buy two or more publications from which you cut this.
