FOOD ADULTERATIONS AND PATENT MEDICINES State Chemist E. F. Ladd Outlines What Ten Years of North Dakota's Pure Food Law Has Accomplished and Explains Plans for Future Betterment of Conditions tor the People of the Flickertail State Dr. Ladd in his address before the Federated Womons Clubs of North Dakota said: "Ten years ago in this state there was scarcely a butclior's shop that did not use boric acid and sulfites, two of the most harmful of chemical preservatives,also coal tar dye and various other preparations, to make their meals look fresh and preserve them from decay. Sauitary conditions in the handling of the meat were al most unknowu. Hamburger sreaks and saus ages, not only hy tbe local butcher, but by the larger packing houses were embalmed with pre servatives. Even in the canned moats preser vatives were used, so that if it had not been well done or the steralizins had not been properly carried out, the meat wonld keep and have the appearance of soundness when it reached our tables. Our canned corn too often was of low grade, bleached with sulfites, sweetened with saccha rin or coal tar sugar to make it in a measure palatable. Tomatoes in the can were largely water, often green, material colored red with coal tar dye. and at times containing preserva tives. Canned peas contained preservatives like boric acid, benzoate of soda and were greened with copper salts. The canned berries, especially the cheaper grades, that go into the home of the working man, were of inferior quality, green or decayed, the whole mass color ed with coal tar dye to give the appearance of maturity, sweetened with saccharine instead of sugar, and at times oven containing added pre servatives to prevent the necessity of steraliza tion, Factory conditions were bad. There were very few places where the conditions were such as would be tolorated in the home of any intel ligent person, Maplo sugar and svrups were adulterated with cane sugar and glucose and at times sweetened with saccharin. Scarcely a .ielly was to be found fit to be eaten. Its basis was too often skins and refuse of apples, cores, rotten portions, all improperly kept, dessicated sacked and shipped to the place where it was manufactured into jelly. There the mass was steamed and worked until when mixed with glucose and other fruit juices it would be con erted into a jelly and used in the homes of our working people. Kven that entering the homes the most discriminating families was often gely adulterated and unfit as an article of "d. Stock lubfls were added without regard ti I he character of the product and according to ti.- demands made for a jjarticular kind of jelly din was often the refuse of the jelly making re inforced with a little fruit, glucse, saccharin, and sugar, colored with coal tar d\e, and at times grass seed added to simulate the seed of the fruit from which the jam was supposed to be made. Ground spices seldom contained more than fifty per cent of the real spice named upon the label ground cereals, cocoanutshells and olive stones, together with coal tar dyes, made the article presentable to the eye and found ready sale under fancy labels and often at fancy prices. Ten years ago, not one grocery store in ten in North Dakota carried aline of vat-illa extracts which would be used at the present time by any part of the public, yet such was the condition ten years ago. N'o longer are these gross adul terations practiced no longer are our food pro ducts sophisticated in this way. The price is eternal vigilence upon the part of those whose duty it is to see that the laws of the stale are enforced and respected. L,et us relax our efforts or let the public los-e interest for six months and then note the conditions in this state or any other with regard to our food6upply. There is not one week that passes but what someone tries to put upan the martfet an article that is mis branded, misrepresented or unfit for use, Beverages and soft drinks are even worse than the foods in the period mentioned, Today new problems confront us of equal importance to those we have had to deal with in the past. As the population has become more dense our streams and water supplies have become more contaminated, and as we have come to depend more and more upon the food products as pur chased in the stores and shops we have come to find that sanitary conditions require our close and immediate attention. Ten years more and we shall look back and wonder how we have tolerated conditions which ar all to prevalent today in the handling and dispensing of uur food products, In the char acter nf our water supplies in tho control of our milk supply in the factory and about the houte, where unsanitary conditions may exist, permitting of the lodgement of disease germs. Go into the back alley of the business portion of nearly any town go into the back rooms and basements of the stores and note how little care is given to the protection which the public is entitled to. Look at some of our bake shops and their location the condition of our slaugh ter houses and the lack of care in disposing of the refuse an manure from stables. Note how the refuse, waste products and garbage are al lowed to accumulate and be the breeding ground for Hies and other vermin that are among the greatest distributors of disease that we now have. Little attention is paid to tho sanitary condition of the place where milk is produced or handled and little do we know with regard to the character of the milk, whether or not the -same is contaminated with typhoid fever germs or those producing summer complaint, dysen try, etc. Yet the milk is received in this raw condition into the home and used by all and it has been repeatedly shown that typhoid fever, scarlet fever, tonsilitio, tuberculosis and suir complaint are easily distributed through the medium of the milk furnished to a community. In the smaller towns little do we know with Tegard to tho character of the water supply as to whether or not the water is pure as usual in the shops and stores or at the soda fountains and in the preparation of 6oft drinks. All these things must have proper supervision for tho protection of the public. Ho with me for a few moments into the back alleys of nome places that might well be named and there behold the uwarm of tlies breeding und gathering about a mass of decomposing ma terial, where perhaps the excreta of typhoid fever or tuberculosis patients havo been thrown- Note to whiitoxtont Hies gather around these places, so that their probosis,fset and wings be come covered witli the tilth, carrying with tliom millions of disease germs, aud then direct to the house or shop they carry this inn"* of din* ou we producing, iiiHtoriul, depositing it u|0fi articlen of food, in the milk "upply or pei'lmp* alight upon the fuce, lip* or touguu of the in. fant, ami there depo»lt the germs that are to prffduoo •uiiiinereoiiiplaiiit orotherdiseuaeii all too provitloiit. There is no necessity, for tolerating flies to this extent in any town or in any community when we once are awakened to tho dangers that they may bring aud the ease with which the flies may be held in control. Flies are not like birds going from place to place. They seldom go more than a few hundred yards from the place of their development. If ail the refuse ma terial, garbage and manure from- the stables were properly cared for aud promptly removed under tho control of city officials and an ordi. nance prohibiting the tolerance of these pro ducts for a period of more than six days wo should soon be at the end of our troubles in this direction. From the time thi egg is de posited in the putrifying mess of manure, gar bage or other filth until a fully developed fly has come from the magot, requires a period of from eight to ten days. Therefore if these waste products, be frequently removed or disinfected, there can he no place for flies to develop. It is useless for ouo family to attempt to rid them selves of flies with proper disinfectin'g or the re moval of such refuse, when every other family, perhaps, in the same block or community have conditions most favorable for the development of these germs and disease carriers. I urge therefore upon you as members of the federa tion to use your influence in every part of the stete to secure the enactment of proper village and city ordinances, and in the creation of a public sentiment which will demand proper sanitary conditions and the right disposal of waste products and garbage. Then in ten years, if not less, we shall have come to the ilylessage or so near so that we shall wonder how the peo pie could have tolerated in our day and time the things which are so common now, because so little has been known with reeardto the dan. gersthat come to us from their presence. In the early season is the time to destroy the fiies and the practice of quack doctors as much as I'ossiblo, for a single pair of fiies in has an efficient patent medicine law. Then the public will be able to compare town with town as to the conditions which exist and 1 am sure that we will see moro marked impro vements thau have come in the past,even though today in these respects North Dakota Is far ahead of many of lier sister states, for nowhere in this state in general do ynu find articles of food exposed upon the sidewalks, and in our better stores no longer are food products ex posed upon the floor, where they can become contaminated, and yet such conditions are too often found if you will take note of some of the cities outside of North Dakota. I might deal for a considerable time with other features of our food work, but enough has been said to point out to you what has been accomplished and the benefits that have come to the public by the enforcement of our food and sanitary laws. TEXTILE FIBRES. one season will be tho progenitors of millions and New /eland have what might in many re of flies in tl later summer. I spects be termed a model law yet in U. S. and You may be interested to know thatduring the England the worst fakes that are perpetrated present year we have introduced a new feature in our foo.l work in North Dakota, which we expect to enlarge aud develop in the future and that is in the more careful scoring of business places, where food products andboverages aro manufactured, handled, distributed or treated in any shape cr manner. Even in the milk sup ply we go back to the farm and study the sani tary conditions, the character of the water sup ply, the health of the animals as well as of the people who furnish the milk to the town. More and more this must come to be an important feature. Farther than that each manufac turer, dealer or store in the state we are now furnishing a copy of the summarized score, which may be posted up in the store if the pro prietor desires to do so that the public may know what the sanitary condition has been found to be, not only in the front part of the store, but in the back room cellar or basement, toilet aud surroundings, and you may rest as sured that where the score card is exhibited the score for the place is generally above 85 per cent and approaching 100, but where the score is be low S5 you will not find the score card on exhibi tion, The public should take notice of this and where the score card is not shown there must be some reason for it audit would be well for the patrons to take notice of the fact and see that conditions are made bettor. For your information I might say, that we are just now inaugurating a new plan, and that instead of scoring individual places or stores we are in the future planning to score the town. That is put into a single town all the inspectors for se veral days, or a6 long as need be to make a thorough investigation of the character of the food supply, water supply, milk supply, of the sanitary conditions in and around the places where foods are handled the sanitary condi tion of the alleys. The care of garbage and waste products. And then instead of reporting on the individual stores write up the condition of tli© whole town, showing the character of the products that are handled in the drugstores tho purity of the food products handled in tho grocery stores, the sanitary condition of the meat markets and slaughter houses tho facili ties afforded the help the character of the milk supply and of the water used in soda fountain supplies and other soft drinks. Not all the sophistication, adulteration and misrepresentation by any means is confined to tho question of foods. There is hardly an ar ticle today that comes into the home or into general use but what there are those. who are producing imitations, adulterations, or a pro duct which is misrepresented. The writer is not one who would prohibit from sale any harmless article that the public might desire. If there are those who wish for ground cereals, cocoanut shells and olive stones in place of part of their pepper they slionld have an opportunity to purchase the same, but there should be no misrepresentation, they should know what they are getting. If there aro those who want to buy water and pay freight aud tomato prices for canned water in place of tomatoes shipped from the eastern states, they should be permitted to do so, but the labels should be truthful. If there are those who want inferior oysters soaked in water to make them appear better than they are, and have added water in place of oysters they should be given an opportunity to purchase such pro ducts, but no man should be priviliged to sell such products as oysters but under a truthful label that would read something like this "second grade oysters or culls bloated in soft water" not always pure and 40 per cent of added water. Then the truth would be known, but when this is done no one seems to care to pur chase this class of products. If we turn our attention again to textile fabrics, what .10 we find? Much of the silk is an imitation. Genuine Bilk is loaded down with mineral matters from 30 to 70 per cent, often containing so much of tin and other salts that when the fabric is folded and left for a short time the fibre breaks aud the silk is destroyed. Fanciful nameB. deceptive and misleading, a play upon words are applied to those fabrics in order to deceive and mislead the purchaser. 1'ho dealer of todBy, instead of foiling you all wool says that the articlo is commercial wool. He tolls you that there is 10 por cent, cotton present to make tho goods wear better, lie has told you a half truth in most instances, but ho has not finished his statement for I10 had been describing an article that I saw maua factaroil in one of tho large onstorn mills, his statement should have been something like this: composed of II) pur cent cotton, 10 IHT cent of Australian wool nnd SO ]er cent of Hhoddy or giouml up rags. And so the Hhoddy may be any whore from 5 to 10 per cunt to the great bulk of the goods now uiiuiufaclureil. Even the chemicul tent applied to thuite goods would not show you tliAt nhodily is tlm chief Ingre dient. Hut tlm weurliui soon uliow* aud the urtlolat of iittlu value. I'll* poorest OIMUMM are more defrauded in this respect than are the wollto do, Tho housewife of the working man who must make her ovory penny count trie-i to procure warm clothes for her children and gets com mercial wool or worse, often largely cotton or cotton flashed with wool upon the Surface, soon the wool is worn away and the child is unpro tected from inclement weathor. IR it right or should we as citizens interested in the welfare of all our people demand that the truth should he known, domaud that laws should be cuacted requiring that each and every product put up on tho market which contains two or more ingredients, or in the case of goods that con tain shoddy or fl'.lers or other added material should know what ingredients are used and the amounts of the same. Such laws can only be ona ted when public seutimentdemands them and public sentiment will ouly come when aggressive aud live bodies like the Federation of woman's clubs and Jheir co-workers through out the country arise aud demand the enact ment of such laws for the protection of our people and this without excluding any of the cheaper articles, but let it be once known what these products are and the prices which they LOW command will become more nearly that of thoir true value. Then the public cau intelligently select the character of the goods which they may choose to purchase for their families This does nut mean that a single article of commerce will be driven from the market, but it would he un masked anil shown to the public in its true light. PATENT MEDICINES It is a disgrace that England and America should be so far behind other civilized countries with regard to the control of patent medicines Even the soft dtinks that, are supplied at the soda fountains or other places have been found to beinedicated containing cocaine, caffaine etc. Too often do wo find those addicted to this class of medicated drinks, little knov ing that they are gradually being drawn into the uso of one of the most insiduous and habit formiug drugs at present known. .v Today strenuous efforts are being put forth, to prevent tbe sale of this class of products and yet in many states there are 110 laws to regulate the character of the products which aro sold to the people Asthma cures aro sold containing from 1 to 8 grains of chloral hydrate, others containing co caine, morphine or opiu m. The same ingred ients are used in catarrh cures, for tho opium habit,and in tho cure of alcoholic disease, pf late wo have heard a great deal and read con. siderable in tho papers concftnine Hamiltfons Obesity Bath Powders for the reduction of flesh and we note the prosecutions brought by the government against those charlatans of Denver, Of what i» this product composed? Our analysis shows it to be 56 per cent common salt, 44 per cent washing soda, colored pink with a coal tar dye. Tho use of this product is guaranteed to remove superflous flesh, to ^give one a beautiful form and to make life a pleasure The opposite of this is sargal and we find that not a few of our own people in North Dakota are users of this preparation, a product which it is claimed, will add fiesh, build up t! 1 thin and emaciated by putting on flesh rounding out the figure, correcting errors of indigestion. Ten days treatment for $1.00. Our analysis showsnothiug that could warrant such claims. In fact it may be pointed out that our own aualysis compared with other American aualysis and analysis made in Great Britain indicate that the product is far from uniform. Approximately one half of the sam ple analyzed by us was mineral matter con taining very little of protein together with phosphates. Hypo phospto starcti and a small amount of sugar as the principal ingredients. While another aualysis initead of showing 50 per cent of mineral matter shows less than 4 por cent of mineral matter and the English aualysis, instead of showing 2 per cent of protein shows a very high amount and also shows the presence of zinc phosphide, while tho sample examined by us shows an absence of zinc. There is nothing that would warrant the conclusion that this article has any special value in tho production of flesh producing plumpness an.l soundness that is claimed for it. Sanitogen is another product being extensiv ely advertised and pushed by manufacturers who have recently informed the public of the grand prize which they have received for an exhibit iu London, To one who is familiar with the method by which these grand prizes are won. This will make no impression but let one consider what Dr. Folin of Harvard Medical Hchnol a scientist whom no one, can question has to say with re gard to this preparation, For myself or for any one who would ask my advise, I would prefer a glass of milk to sana togon when hungry and plain Glycerol phos phates to sanatogen when in need of a tonic. Medicated food used to be sold for horses. To me the food tonic combination represents one of the most, unscruplous fakn ideas used by manufacturers of patent articles to fool the public. If sanatogen is good and no one will doubt but what it has some virtue for it is Glycerol phosphates and casein of milk then we must infer that tho use of milk and eggs would be better und this is only a fraction of tho cost of sanatogen but perhaps without the same psyco logical Affect that follows the use of an nu known article. Practically all the bitters and ionics of this class found upon tho market as far as wo have examined have been found to contain from to -It) por centalcbol with very little of anything else to add inodicinal value alcholic stimulation is their chief virtue if they po»Hos.- one. Thoro is not a doctor who adveriines a euro for consumption, kiduey trouble, catarrh, can cels, etc., but what is 11 fake and tlm medlciues which ho puts out are of no value.

NOVEMBER 27. 1913 Germany Australia are those upon suffering humanity, often thru correspondence and thus not easily reached under the provisions of the state food law. Quack doctors ply their trade from town to town or through correspondence lead their victims to thoir own private hospitals or give them home treatment which is often worse than worthless because the treatment received is of no benefit and not infrequently results iu the drug habit. I have previously stated that in my judgment more than 75 per cent of the patent medicines found upou the shelves of the average drug store are fakes, lu that they contain nothing of real medicinal value for the treatment of tho disease that is claimed, or they- contain harm ful ingredients that may lead to injury or the drug habit. How many mothers innocent of any intentional wrong doing, have fed soothing syrup to their children which lias been either directly or indirectly the cause of death How many thousands of our people have been led to form tho cocaine or morphine habit from the use of some patent preparation for the cure of catarrh, asthama,dyspepsia,the alcoholic habit, and scores of other ailment only to find later 011 that cocaine, morphine, or soma of their derivatives wore the iugrodient employed. The American people are just beginning to awaken to tho need of the regulation of this class of traffic and I hope in the near future that. North Dakota along with other states will enact laws to vegnlate the manufacture aud sale as well as praotice of quack physiciaus. Our remedy lies-in a law which will lequiro that every produot to be sold in the state shall bo registered under the law and passed upon by a board authorized to determine whether or not a product is as represented when tho formula and literature is placed' before them whether or not it possesses virturo as a cure or remedy for the disease or diseases claimed and if not to prohibit the salo completely as is done today in Australia. Such legislation will come only when the public comes to appreciate the abuses that are practiced and demand a correction through legislative enactmont and that steps bo taken to see that tho laws are honestly and rigidly enforcod. 1 cannot close without making some sugges tions to tho Womans Federation of Clubs in North Dakota and urge upon them to carry back to their local clubs recommendations that shall be put in practice and tend in tho near future to educate the public to demand protec" tion against sueh abuse as wo have mentioned Among these recommendations I would urge upon your attention the following. 1st—That one day be set aside ,-ach year by overy womans club or civic organization, having regular programs to be known as "health day." The papers that might be prepared for the information of the public at that time to include tho quostion of foods, drugs, patent medicines, fake practices, our water supply, milk Supply sanitary conditions in and about our town and the proper disposal of refuse and garbage. 2nd—That yon use your influence to help create a sentiment favorable to tho enacting of a law requiring the truthful labelliug of all articles with regard to their composition and with special referenceto textile fabrics. 3—That in each locality as rapidly as possible the town and city organization be urged to en act ordinances for the protection of the public and the appointment of local inspection to co-operate with the food department. 4th—Tt.e securing of a law that shall requiio that the slaughter houses not under municipal control shall belicenced and maintained at all times in proper sanitary condition. 5th—The enactment of a law that shall re quire, under a proper board, the licensing of ail patentand proprietory medicines and the prac tice of itinerant doctors excluding all fakes or preparations or practices as well as claims that are deceptive and misleading. If we use our influence in the creation of a proper public sentiment such laws as I have indicated can bo secured and the general public protected from many abuses. And if our various organization devote tome little time to the consideration of local problems in connection with food sanitary and health matters in the several communities it will be but a short time until we shall seo changes in the conditions of our cities as well as in health of our people that will more than repay us for all the efforts we havo put forth, —E.

The English of Harvard university students is criticised. Next Boston, the outraged, will be accused of cherishing the split infinitive in its very midst. Since the golf championship has been wrested from England poor old John Bull will probably recall that he really never did care for anything but cricket. The function of the great European powers as regards the Balkans consists in saying "Tut. tut!" before a war be gins and "Oh, dear!" after it has started. It has been estimated that 1,000,000 lead pencils are used up daily. If ev ery woman sharpened her own pencil the number used would be past com putation. With the proverbial perverseness of the sex, a German princess shoots her self because she has to marry a title, while American heiresses kick when they can't.1 Short the nation may be of cows, sheep, goats and other things on which people feed, but the country apparently never will be short of those who feed on the public. A St. Louis packer says porterhouse will be selling for a dollar a pound In ten years unless we stop killing the fatted calf. Suppose we welcome the prodigal with clam chowder. A British visitor complains of the shocking publicity of our barber shops and adds that we have no notion of modesty or privacy. Perhaps he thinks we ought to have our hair cut in the dark. This prediction of a restoration of hoopskirts to fashion may not be real ized. A great many such threats never come true For instance, about a year ago they were foretelling side whiskers for men. A New England suffragette has tamed angleworms so that they come up out of the ground and eat sauer kraut from her hand Such a woman should have no trouble whatever with mere man. That proposition to make baggage cars collapsible, so they may act as buffers in train collisions, will meet the hearty approval of everybody, perhaps, except the person who has a trunk In the baggage car. The purchase of a $2,000,000 art col lection at Frankfort-on-the-Main by "an unknown American" constitutes another raid of the American dollar 011 the art. treasures of Europe.

Uncle Sam's Antecedents. A reader asks how the name Uncle Sam came to be adopted for the im aginary genius who directs the des tinies of this nation The answer is very simple. "Uncle Sam" is merely a popular expansion of the Iptters "U. S." Albert Matthews once wrote a forty-five page monograph to prove this, and he showed that the expression went back to the year 1813. .lames Fenimore Cooper In "The Prairie" in 1827 spoke of "the well known initials tlmt Have gained for the gov ernment of tlie United States the good humon-d and quaint appellation of Un cle Sinn "-New York Post. And now Dr. Dubbe or some other eminent scientist says Mother Eve was fashioned from Adam's backbone. We deduct that a spineless mollycoddle has therefore a strain of Adam in his makeup. Apparently all that the ordinary citi zen has to do in order to get the cor rect time by government wireless is to carry with him it 100 foot tower and a receiving instrument attuned to 2.500 meter waves. It's going to be a great help. Now it is proposed to make the life boats on the Atlantic liners of much greater size, each capable of carrying 250 persons, being partially decked over and driven by gasoline.
