Th Condiment King.
To few men can the much-abused epi
thet, "Captain of Industry," be so
fittingly applied as to H. J. Heinz,
and Arthur Tarbell's story of the
Condiment King, whose 57 varieties of
palate ticklers have become household
words, is one of the most entertaining
features of Human Life for August.
It is an intimate story of the man
himself,of the first humble beginnings,
of the great industry he founded, and
of his steady climb up the long lad
der of success. It is, moreover,
thickly strung with incidents and
anecdotes illustrating the tastes and
hobbies of Mr. Heinz, and the visitor
to his palatial Pittsburgh home will
be impressed by the fact that the pur
suit of one of them at least has bought
a great deal of happiness into his life.
But the most distinctive streak in
his nature is his loyalty to the welfare
idea. For years 'he has carried out
his "heart- power-in-business" plan
with conspicuous success. It is no
uncommon thing now to see big indus
trial plants paying attention to the
health ancfwelfare of their employees,
but to Mr. Heinz belong the honors
of the pioneer. Thirty thousand
visitors went over his works last year,
and the one lasting impression they
all carried away was that of the many
ideas employed to lighten and brighten
the day's toil.
The figures relating to this business
are simply astounding,—30,000 acres
of land under cultivation, 40,000
people to assist in harvesting the
crops, etc.,—and all this grew from a
little horse-radish garden out behind
his father's house fifty years ago.
This is tbe second in a series of
stories relating to great American
Captains of Industry that is to run
through Human Life.—Human Life

Food Value of Chestnuts.
The fruit of the chestnut tree is
nearly as valuable as bread and more
valuable than potatoes for dietetic
purposes. Two pounds of chestnuts
contain 118 grammes of starch and
eight of fat.
The annual production of chestnuts
in France is over 3,000,000 quintals of
220 pounds. That means food for
many workmen. But the hide-tanners
keep the product from the food-mar
ket by buying it in large quantities
for use in their business. Producers
make more profit by selling their
chestnuts for tanning than by dis
posing of them for food.—Harper's
Color Symbol In Moccasins.
The color symbolism of moccasins
has puzzled the scientists not a little.
The arbitrary establishment of sym
bols seems never to have contem
plated any sort of universal color sig
nification. Red in many tribes de
notes life, man, bravery and the male
child. Yellow indicates the sun, green
the verdant earth and white the arid
plains. The Pawnee medicine man
wore black moccasins to denote wis
dom and power.
Insurance Departmen Bulletin,
Insurance in excess of value is a
fraud on the honest owner of property
and one of the strongest incentives to
the dishonest, to commit arson. The
law of this State requires that all
structures shall be examined and the
insurable value fixed by the insurer
or his agent. A compliance with this
I'equirement will prevent over-insur

of care should be exercised in writing
insurance on stocks or contents. The

This latter course caused much ad

confreres, but it never bothered him.
A northern Democrat recently re
monstrated with him at the utmost
limit of vocal endeavor, concluding
with the statement that "perdition's
full of such Democrats."
"So is Louisiana," said McEnery.
Of his deafness the favorite story
told was of a newspaper correspondent

"Don't hear you," said the senator.
"Oh, yes I believe I have got one,"

handed it to the newspaper man. The
latter, seeing the hopelessness of the
case, accepted the cigar as the best

Native of Louisiana.
Senator McEnery was born in Mon
roe, La., in May, 1837. His father,
Henry McEnery, was a native of Lim
erick, Ireland, who, emigrating to this
country, was appointed by President
Taylor registrar of the land office at
Monroe. Samuel had a preparatory
education in private schools and en
tered the Naval academy at Annapolis
in 1852, where he spent three years,
but resigned in 1855.
He then spent two years in the aca
demic department of the University
of Virginia and afterward attended
the National Law school at Pough
keepsie, N. Y., where he graduated.
He then went to Nottoway county,
Va., where he practiced law one year,
but his health failed, and he rwurned
to Monroe in 1860.
At the breaking out of the civil war
McEnery became lieutenant of an in

Entered Politics In 1879.
In 1867 he began the practice of law
at Monroe, but persistently refused of

he consented to be nominated for lieu
tenant governor. He was elected and
on the death of Governor Wiltz in
October, 1881, became governor of the
state. He was a candidate for the
governorship in 1884 and was elected.
He retired from this office in 1888,
Governor P. T. Nicholle, who
ceeded McEnery in the gubernatorial
office, appointed him to the supreme
bench for a term of twelve years. In
the gubernatorial compaign of 1892
Justice McEnery was nominated by
the Democracy and ran against Gov
ernor Foster. He was defeated on
this occasion. He was elected to the
United States senate in 1896, was re
elected In 1902 and again In 1908.
