They will all do it-given the time, (ihe opportunity and the sufficiently ap pealing motive. Apparently not one of 'them even remotely reali7.es the fact that 'ihe newsjaper man who does that sort of thing simplv tetrays bis read cm and dishonors his profession. Men -whie personal code of honor is high, who would scorn to do a treach erous or underhanded deed, will bring everv known pressure to bear on a newspaper organization to have some- lhiJigepvr"ed th,t tJ"y iiegr might injure some person, caue or commu nity. Xtt manr go so far a to try io ercion and bribery, but even those ex pedients are known to 1iavebeen em ployed. These well meaning penile, who ap parently have formed no conception whatever of the one incorruptible and inviolate virtue of every decent news paper olW. will ay, "Well, th,ere are plenty of things you don't print, lots of things that 'happen that never see daylight." Jut as if the faults and shortcoming of a newspaper' news staff would justify deliberate betrayal of that newspaper's public. Xo newspaper can publish "all the news." even all the news "thai'' fit to print;"' neither can it prevent fre ipient occasion when the faulty hu man unit "falls down on this job" and overlooks new or fsils to recognize it "when seen," but newspapers are fair lv honorable, serve tlirir reader to ti e lie.-t of their ability and do not de serve the continual accusation that the "right kind" of an appeal can get news supprtssed. Incidentally.il is only fair to remem ber that printing fact in a conserva tive, decent way hllif! no one. The facts may hurt, but to bold a news paper responsible for injuring a caue or community by publishing true and existing facts about it is like holding the effect responible for the cause.

The . federal truth in fabric bill now before Congress propose that cloth ing materials shall be correctly label led as to their content. Since the market to-day i flooded with fabrics made up tf a mixture of cotton and shoddy, some simple tests to detect these' are suggested by the home economic workers of the agricultural extension service of the I'niversity of Vermont and state agricultural college. Good woolen materials feel springy, elastic and wiry. If much cotton or shoddy i combined with wool in manu facture much of its soft elasticity is lost. One of the simplest tests is to burn a sample of the material. Any all wool en burns as hair burn, leaving an oily, gumy residue with an odor of burnt feiither. Cotton burn quickly and is difficult to extinguish. If cotton and wool are woven together the different kinds of fibres may sometimes be dis tinguished by pull inn out the fibres along the torn edge. A lietter way to determine whether cotton ha been woven with the wool i to unravel the warp and weft threads and test separately by burn ing. If cotton and wool have Wen mixed in the yarn the fibre of one strand may be separated and tested above to' distinguish the difference in filler. Chemical tet are probably most satisfactory. These may carried on in the home. Boil an inch square of the material to he tested from 2 to :wi minutes in a pint of soft -water in which five (ahlespoonsful of eithw pearline, gold dnt. star naptha, or four tableMinful of powdered h ing soda has been dissolved. (Boil longer if goods is firm and heavy.) Then transfer the sample to clear wa ter and rub between the finger lip. A gelatinous mas will 1 obtained, uti le. who! is ee'inlly firm and hey. In any cae each thread of wool will ). xoiter and gelatinous. The cotton threads will remain firm and strong. No very accurate te.t can 1m given for khoddv. since it i all wio. but of short staple. The licit woolen have long fibres, with few end on the sur face. Verv short irreirular fibre which mav eailv be pulled out from the rest of the miUcria! indicate the presence of shoddv.'

Dr. Beates admits that he does not believe in the "hardening" theory of health. He thinks that it is of more consequence to keep warm than to take, cold baths, sleep out of doors and avoid heavy clothing. But he presents no proof that those women suffer more who wear with enjoyment and appar ent impunity costumes from which feebler man would shrink. Thousands of women criticize the fashions; but their point of attack is moral, not hygienic. They are shocked by various gowns worn in Philadelphia and ask what mothers are thinking ot: Six layers of orchid tulle is described at the sufficient garb of one daring young Philadelphian. It is said that one girl recently made a sensation in the Quaker city by being modestly appareled and became immediately popular with the men. The. authen ticity of this tale is not vouched for,' It may be the invention of gome trades; man who finds his shelves packed with old-fashioned garments of the kind Aba Potash hated as "lemons." The world ' is full of subtle propaganda these days. As for ourselves, we take no side be tween the rival physicians, but are not ashamed to line up with the venerabla gentleman of the mountains of Ten- nessee who has enjoyed 131 years of excellent health anc( who attributes his vitality to the fact that he has made it a practice not to wear anything about his neck nor (a murrain on all present-day shoe sellers) encasements on pedal extremities.
