It is a well established fact that the consumer (those who buy nt retail) nre imyinir in these UniUnl States from one to twenty-tivo per cent, more than is necessary, simply from the fact that they do not Vvp posted on current prices. How lont; could a merchant avoid failure were he to use such lax methods m makinur his purchases ? One would quickly say such a dealer was a failure from the beginning, then why do you use this method in a small way ? It would cost you but the request to keep pace with the times in the way of prices on all staple articles you are apt to use.

AlULlKliAliON OF FOOD. Much Impure Food is Sold in this State. Tlip Itmilt. nf Mtin Monthn li -fMlKntlnn ;lven by Secretary Ktle Krult, .lams, ntsiip, ItackM licut I'loiir, riic'se, lastarit, Spices Rail rrencli IVrts l-'c.ti ml to Contain Injurious Huledniiccft Imitation Huttcr. The report of Secretary Edge of the Department of Agriculture, for the last nine months of 1MI5 is com pleted, and contains some highly interesting statistics. He says con servative estimates place the value of the food of the citizens of this state at not less than four hundred millions of dollars, and that the average estimate of adulteration is twenty millions of dollars. The following items will mainly cover the worst forms of adulteration. The use of salycylie acid in the preparation of fruit jams, catsup, etc., which is introduced for the pur pose of preventing fermonl at ion,and, of course when it enters the diges tive organs with the food, operate to a certain extent to retard or pre vent the proper digestion. But two samples of buckwheat Hour from a number tested were found pure, rhree-fif'thsol' the samples of cheese, showed them to be " filled," that is the milk had been skimmed, the cream used for other purposes, and foreign fats, added to make up the deHcieticy. Of mustard two-thirds were found to be adulterated, nnd he states that it is his belief, that furnished ns a table article it is never pure. The ground spices, such as pepper, gin ger, cinnamon, etc. are seldom pure. Many fruit jams, particularly those claiming to be strawberry nnd raspberry were found to consist largely of starch iasto,vith scarcely enough fruit, in several cases, to claim the name. Every samilo of so-called French peas was found to contain nn injuri ous amount of metallic salts. Un der the supervision of Major Levi Wells, dairy nnd food commissioner, then has liecn nn active and ag gressive campaign against dealers in oleomargerine, buttorino and other imitations. Many convictions have liecn pro cured, but there is a vast amount of work yet to lie done lieforo the s ile of these protlucts can be effectually prevented, and the goods kept out of the market. Secretary Edge cordially npproves of tho one day "farmers' institutes," in each place ns a larger number of farmers can le reached by this methixl than by nny other plan. Dr. Rothrock is at the head of the forestry work, and in his prelimin ary report ho shows that if the un productive land of tho State could in any manner be protected from for est fires for forty or fifty years it would proliably prtxlucc timlx-r worth not less than one billion two hundred million dollars. The re port further shows that during the past year not less than 225,0(10 acres of forest land have Ihvu burned over nnd that it cost alxmt $45,000 to fight forest fires. They Are All In Favor. A M-tition circulated in East Stroudslmrg, for nnd against the Delaware Valley railway resulted in the signing of forty six names in about two hours, all in favor of the road. The names of nil tho prom inent merchants are down. This shows conclusively what is thought by East Stroudslmrg citizens upon the matter. Times A Trolley of the Future. Mauch Chuuk's bright newspaper, " The Daily News " in quoting from this pajier concerning tho Delaware Valley railway says : " Tho matter is of importance even tons overbore in Mauch Chunk. Tho day is not far distant when the Delaware Water Oaj) and the Switzerland of America the two great summer resorts in Eastern Pennsylvania, will be united by a trolley ,to run either over Poco uo Mountain or through the valley between it and tho Blue Mountain." Tinu s. MILFOIU), 1'IKE CHILLED BY ICY WATER. Sml l'rtte of Mr. I'eter Nolan Who Attenp tcfl lo Crow, the Iftelnware River nn the lee flt Mntn moras. Mr. Peter Nolan, a resident of Port Jervis, who hail been visiting friends in Matamoras on Saturday last, some time in the evening started back home, nnd probably thinking to ex pedite his return started to wnlk tho ice nt n point opposito Oermnntown. Before he had gone twenty feet ap parently, tho teacherous ico gave way. Early Sunday morning a lady residing at (ionuantown heard cries of distress, evidently coming from the river. She succeeded in sending n train crew to the river, but they could not cross to tho aid of tho drowning man. Word was sent to the Delaware house, nnd a wagon and men hastily started for the scene, on arriving thero they found Mr. Nolan standing in nliout three feet of water, but almost per ished. Mr. John McCalie succeeded in putting a rope around him, and he wtis dragged out of tho water nnd put in the wagon, hut by reason of the exposure for so long n time life was nearly extinct and he died while on tho way to the hospital in Port Jervis. The party rescuing Mr. Nolan from the river consisted of Richard Piggory, Charles Bohnn, John McCnlie, Ilarry Ellis and Ed. Sluvhan. Township and Borough Elections. .

COUNTY, l'A., FRIDAY, JAM'AKY 24, 18. A PROSPEROUS FARMER BUNCOED. He Wan Kellevnl of :l.MX 1 a Couple of Sharpers. One Oliver S. Morris, who is styled a prosperous farmer, living at Myr tle Orovo near Balevillo, (misscx county, N. J., recently bunciwd a couple of sharpers. Evidently Mr. Morris reads tho papers, and is up-to-dnte. It happened this way : A jxirtly, fine hxiking man called on him representing himself to lie the son of a prominent gentleman of Deckertown, and desired to pur chase a farm. They walked around and soon chanced to meet another mnn who appeared to be intoxicated, and wanted to bet on cards. As No. 2 seemed to be perfectly reckless, and lost money all the while, No. 1 and Mr. Morris had easy game. Fin ally No. 2 offered to bet a large sum, which No. 1 and Mr. Morris could not cover, but as Mr. Morris had money in the bank at Newton, he proceeded there wiOt No. 1 and drew out f3,noo. They then went back to bluff No. 2. He did not have so much money on his person but did liaxe it in the Deckertown bank, and proposed to put Mr. Mor ris' money with considerable more in a tin box and leave it in Mr. Mor ris' possession, while Nos. 1 and 2 wont to get the money tint of the bank. The tin box was put under the seat of Mr. Morris' wagon, when No. 1 who wanted to be perfectly fair expostulated and said the bar gain was that Mr. Morris was to havo tho box right in his hands, so thero could be no possible mistake. No. 1 then prex'ooded to hand the box out from under the seat, and gave it to Mr. Morris who drove off happy, while Nos.J.nml, 2 also drove away after the money. Mr. Morris soon met a neighbor who had in some manner found out about tho racket and suggested to Mr. Morris to examine tho box. He did so nnd it was found to contain a lot of old papers. At last accounts he was in search of his friends, but with no success, they are doubtless looking for other prosjK'rous New- Jersey farmers who take the papers and havo plenty of money in the bank, and want to bent them nt their own gnnie. The Tots Are Lively. Last Saturday evening, Miss Mil- licent Crissman gave n party to a number of young society peo ple of this placc,and they had a fine time. Miss Crissman is a capital entertainer, nnd why should she not be with such examples as it is her good fortune to have. Games, danc ing and music, just tho same as big folks, occupied tho time, until tho sand man came along, and then nil was soon forgotten in the innocent dreams of ehildhoixt. Those pro sent were Edna and Henry Kilter, Florenco Lattimore, Bessio and Harry Armstrong, Harold Arm strong, Edna Lnnschnntin and sister, Virginia Mott, Alice Baker, Williemeno Lewis, Allio Emerson, Mary Lnssitor, Dora Brodhead and Edith Vyso. On Monday evening a surprise party was given to tho children of Samuel Eldred, who resides ti t G rn nd Valley, Pa., nt tho Dinimiek House, about twenty-five were present. The little folks indulged in readings, speaking, dancing nnd other 'enter tainments, which filled: out the eve ning pleasantly. Port Jervis Water Question. The war which has been on sii ct last summer between the Port Jei vis Health board and tho Water com pany, has at last Veen ended. A chemical analysis of the water was procured from tho state chemist, by tho board, which proline d the water not unfit for drinking purposes, and thercupou notice was given the water company to flush and fill the mains from its reservoir. The Secretary of State reports that in New Jersey there are 14,528 more girls than unmarried men. Six of the twenty-one counties have more males thnn females.Sussex be ing in tho list, with 10,829 females. Register. STATE COLLEGE REPORT. lOxpcrloicnts With 'innmcrclat rcrtlll zrrs. From the rep irt of H. P. Armsby, diivefor of the experiment station, we glean the following facts: The farm consists of 110 acres, all arable land. Of this area, over IK lores n iv tis.'d for experiments with e.mmiercial fertilizers, and about 1 '.j acres is divided in smaller plots, ind used in part for additional fer lili. ! experiments and in part for mis vllaneous work. Nine acres are used nnnually for tests of vari eties of farm crops, and an urea varying from year to year, for ex periments upon the growth of for age crops, especially corn and roots, under varying c inditions. The farm is operated as a dairy farm, those portions of it not s(ieei lieally devoted to plot work being I'arnied with a view to securing a food supply for the dairy stock. It is proposed to case growing wheat except for exp "l ini Mitiil work, and to c ailine sales from the farm to dairy products and live stock. The resent herd numbers 3o at the Head of which is a full-blooded Guernsey bull of an approved but ter breed. The herd averages a production of 300 pounds of butter per year, and it is believed that when the young stock conies into production this average will be con siilerahle increased. Then? has been no attempt to maintain a herd of full-blooded animals or to make tests of different breeds. The ob ject is to secure such results as can li.- obtained by any gtxxl farmer with a good dairy herd. Special at tention is mid to the subject of feed ing stuffs and. forage crops, for thri reason that it was thought more im portant that farmers should be more specifically informed as to the ad vantages of stock fanning as com pared with grain raising. The lat ter is a relatively -exhausting sys tem, while the former tends to con serve and increase fertility. Many minor experiments have heeu made, but the most extensive and important havo been in regard to forage crops. Seventeen differ ent species of more or less unusual forage plants havo lxvii tested, but the chief work has been upon In dian corn as n forage crop. All the experiments show that it gives a largo gross yield per acre. And that, ns compared with other forage crops, it has a high degree of digesti bility, and that consequently it yields a relatively largo amount of food from a given area and a given amount of labor. The methods of preserving tho crops for winter feeding, esx)cially tho relative value of field curing nnd ensilage, nnd the result has shown tho undoubted advantages resulting from the adoption of ensilage. Root crops ns forage have also lx-cn studied, with tho result, that from an economical point of view, the value has been markedly in favor of silage. STATE NEWS.

Eight hundred tons of old cannon and 500 tons of shot and shell, which the Confederates proci red in the fills for their defense of Southern ports from the attacks of the Union Navy 'a rived at Philadelphia on the schooner James W. Fitce, from Pen sjie ila. This entire consignment will be broken up for old iron. These cannon and ammunition were, in their time, up to date in the requirements of the Government, but now the changes are such that it is entirely valueless, except as old metal. Some of the cannon weigh a ton or more each, and because of their an tique type are curiosities. They had lain so long abandoned, however, that the Government ordered the entire lot to bo condemned and sold. The Confederate Governient sx'tit thousauds of dollars for their muni tions of war.
