The decision handed down by the Pennsylvania Supreme Court recently is rather a serious blow to the colored oleomargarine interests, as it points out that juries have the legal right convict a dealer who sells oleo colored by any process, says Wholesale Grocer. The text of the decision is as follows: The people of the Commonwealth have cause for congratulation in the decision written by Judge Henderson of the Superior Court, and just handed down as the unanimous opinion of that judicial body upon certain questions raised under the pure food laws of the state. The Oleomargarine Act of May 29, 1901, requires as one of the measures to prevent the deceptive sale of this but ter substitute, that this product "shall ■be made and kept free from all colora tion or ingredients causing it to look like yellow butter.'' In the Clewel and Ignatavig cases, just decided, the oleo interests con tended that the words "yellow butter" in the act referred yellow butter calls "yellow butter"; in other words, that the act, in the use of these words, refers only to butter of the deeper tint possessed by June butter. This posi tion has been repeatedly taken by the oleo interests for some years past, and their contention has again and again sufficiently impressed the district courts and juries to enable them to nullify the efforts of the food bureau to en force the law. The decision of the su perior court now denies the interpre tation given by the oleo trade to the words "yellow butter," and is pre cisely in accord with the position taken by the dairy and food commissioner. The court says, in speaking of the act, ' ' There was no attempt to fix an abso lute shade of yellow, nor intention to permit an imitation of all shades of butter except that which was colored to the highest degree of yellow, which but ter in its natural condition ever poss esses." This decision should be known by •every oleo dealer and every consumer. It means that oleo possessing a yellow color within the range natural to but ter, is illegal. The dairy and food com missioner will continue the vigorous enforcement of the law on this line. to to ' ' commercial or what the traue A collection of buttons dating from the ninth century, left by a man who recently died at Ghent, in France, is valued at $40,000, TO CURE A COLD IN ONE DAY Take LAXATIVE BROMO Quinine Tablets.

(By H. EL ITNATT, Missouri Agricultural Experiment Station.) One of the most successful types of ■llos la that generally known as the "plastered" or Gurler silo. This type Is especially adapted to those sections where there Is still a local supply of native lumber which furnishea a cheap building material. The Gurler silo is built much like a frame house, except that It la round In form, with a lining of boards run ning lengthwise around It, something like the hoops of a barrel which give It strength to resist the Immense pres sure of the silage. Its cement plas tered walls protects the wood frame work from decay. Some of the strong points In favor of this style of silo are: With the circle as a guide a pit Is dug to a depth of from two to three feet. The wall of dirt la cut plumb and the floor leveled. The foundation Is reinforced con The Illustration shows In Crete. cross section the construction of one of the frames, which hold the form boards in place.

HOWTO BUILD CONCRETE WALKS Main Point In Construction, After Good Material Secured, Is Proper Drainage System (By J. W. GRIFFIN.) Th* main point in constructing * concrete walk, after good material has been secured la a proper drain age, without which no walk will give entire satisfaction. Water should at no time atand and frees« around the base of the walk. Freezing and thawing of the earth adjoining tho walk will cause cracks and checks. If there are not sufficient absorbents to take away the moisture. tinder ordinary conditions where tho surface drainage Is fairly good, a base of six inches of coarse gravel or crushed stone Is recommended. This should be tamped perfectly solid, so that there will be no settling or giving down after the walk Is com pleted. The base of gravel or crushed stone should be two or three Inches wider on each side than the concrete. In laying off a walk the top level of same should be located and marked on stakes driven at Intervals of five os six feet. The excavation Bhould be made ten Inches deep from the level line, six Inches for the drainage, three and one-half for the grouting and one half Inch for the top coat. Some prefer one Inch for the top coat, but I have had better results with one-half Inch, as there Is a more even curing or drying out when the top coat Is not so thick; then, the grouting may be made somewhat richer, and the top coat, if put on while the grouting Is yet soft, before the Initial set takes place, there will be a bond secured that will never break. The cement should he soft, smooth and work nicely, the sand should he sharp, coarse and perfectly free from clay or loatn, the gravel or crushed Btone used In making the grouting Bhould be as free of soil and clay as scratching piece. pit wall should be one foot Tbe con crete foundation should extend about one foot above ground oa the outside. The Illustration also shews hew the upper corners of the concrete wall are beveled after the concrete has become sufficiently stiff to permit this being done. The 2 by 4 sill with a large spike for an anchor Is also shown Im bedded In the top of the wall. The concrete should be made from clean, sharp sand and enough Portland ce ment to insure a strong mixture. The proportions will run about as follows: One part cement, 2 1-2 parts sand, and 6 parts of broken stone. Enough wa ter is added during the mixing, which must be thoroughly done, to make a mixture that is thin enough to settle to the form with light tamping hut not so thin as to carry the cement out through the cracks of the form by the water leaking out. The foundation la reinforced with a piece of three-foot woven wire fencing placed in the cen ter of tho form before filling with the concrete mixture. After the wall has set sufficiently to stand alone, the forms may be re moved and the floor laid to a depth of four Inches. It Is advisable, but not absolutely necessary, to pack about four Inches of wet cinders In the bot tom of the pit before laying tho floor. Before the wall and floor have hard ened, a finishing coat of sand and c* ment mixed three-to-one should be put on with a plasterer's trowel. the sand. The cause of so much dis satisfaction In concrete construction Is In the sand and gravel. Where there Is a coat or skim of clay on the gravel a secure bond la Impossible, but If the gravel la wash ed or Is naturally free from this coat of clay, the cement, sand and gravel make a solid equal to stone. The water used In mixing the con crete should be clear and clean. Where water la used, that from filthy ponds, or where it la hauled In oil barrels, oil or the foreign matter In the water, coats the gravel and pre vents a perfect union between the different particles in the mixture. For the grouting, a mixture of seven to one Is made. Seven parts sand and one gravel and one part cement. Of the sand and gravel, the propor tion will have to he mede according to the site of the gravel used. The z Z * '/ y at View of Concrete Wslk Making. larger or coarser, the more esad It requires. The sand fills the Inter stices of the gravel and the oemeat those of the sand. The sand and gravel are mixed while yet dry. The gravel Is damp ened and piled In a cone-shaped pile, and the mixture of cement end sand poured over It. This Is then turned with shovels twice. It Is then sprinkled and mixed until completely wet through and through. It Is then shoveled Into the forms end tamped in place. The mixture for the top coat is made of two parte sand and one part cement; these are mixed while dry and then dampened to the consistency of & thick batter and put on the grouting at once. pt ■ I Chest Pains and Sprains t Sloan's Liniment is an ex cellent remedy for chest and throat affections.

A dealer of our acquaintance, now out of business, had a passion for ob taining tho price he had placed on article, says Farm Implement News. He would spend half a day dickering, talking and arguing rather thun cut the price. Once he had gained his point and his price secured, he would present his customer with a pocket knife or other article from tho store. The dealer insisted upon his price, not from principle but from pride. Tho principle lie shattered always by the subsequent gift. Soon bis customers learuod to ap predate this peculiarity and invariably they held out until sundown, well con vinced that tho lunger they delayed their submission tho more valuable would bo tho subsequent gratuity. This was keeping tho letter of tho law and evading the spirit, this dealer's prices were cut just to tho amount his inter gift cost. Under tho operation of such a custom a consistent price policy was an impossibility. As a matter of fact his trndo was educated to the reverse, and a final agreement to, + i „ i j , i , : pay the price demanded was based upon a speculation as to how valuable u present would follow acquiescence. Probably this was an extreme case which hardly will bear a general appli cation. At tho sume time it is only different in degree from a moro or less prevalent custom of throwing in certain accessories with an implement or a vehicle to induce a sale. Such, for in-1 stance, as a little twine or a can of oil with a binder; an extra share with a plow; a whip or a laprobe with a buggy. In every instance where such things are done there is a considerable latitude allowed for a distinction. The tendency almost is irresistible to show favoritism or to exceed the limit of the usual gratuity in the presence of a hard case. In short, wherever and under whatso ever circumstances this practice is in dulged in it is pernicious in practice and dangerous in tendency. Implement sales are essentially unit sales. While twine and oil are neces sary for tho operation of a binder, still the binder is complete without either. To include either one o-r both is to confound the unity of the business and to break down that distinction which should he maintained between various articles which go to make up an imple ment stock. The same may be said about laprobea and whips when a buggy is sold. A consistent one price policy recog nizes the unit idea in the implement trade. Unless that idea is recognized and adhered to, no consistency in the maintenance of that policy can be sus tained. A binder should be sold as a an Iu effect W. L.
