some artificial means, benzoate of so
da being preferred.
It Is not merely a question as to the
harmfulness of benzoate itself. It la a
question of being able to use nauseous
and unfit material.
The secretary of the American
Health league in Ohio, in a TulletiQ
issued Oct. 25, 1909, describes a visit
he made to a tomato canning factory,
where he studied the methods of hand
ling the waste and refuse, "consisting
of skins, cores, and rotten pulp." The
tomatoes are handled during the short
harvest season in cheaply constructed
and sVed-like buildings, usually In re
mote localities, "where proper sewer
age and other sanitary facilities are
"In spite of all these adverse condi
tions," he says, however, "the canned
tomato product, quickly handled into
its final containers, and thoroughly
sterilized as It is. Is undoubtedly for
the most part a wholesome article of
food supply, and is rarely, in these
days at least, subject to any artificial
"But the waste! This," he continues,
"is a most repulsive, nauseating mass
of fermented, rotten garbage, consising
of peelings, cuttings, and decayed and
parly ripe tomatoes, loosely and care
lessly handled. It is scooped up with
shovels and buckets from the floors,
and afterward is treated with a quan
tity of benzoate of soda, thereby pro
tecting it from ultimate putridity. In
other words it is embalmed."
"In this condition." the bulletin goes
on to say, "it is finally sold to food
manufacturers who make It up into
ketchups, soups, etc. , which are palm
ed off on the public as being made
from fresh, ripe, sound tomatoes, 'pre
prared with 1-lu of 1 per cent benzoate
of soda." Dr. A. W. Bitting, of he
United States department of agricul
ture, in a report of his investigations
of ketchup making, states that the
sreat bulk of tomato ketchup in the
market is made of this material."
These manufacturers are the fellows
that Dr. Wilc-y has been after. In his
work he has run down hundreds of vio
lators of the law, who have been fined
and their products confiscated and de
stroyed. In a bulletin issued June 16,
1911, by the department of agriculture
signed by Secretary Wilson, there is an
account of seizure of "three consign
ments of tomato paste, totaling 22
barrels, shipped from a canning factory
in New Jersey." The complaint
charged that this tomato paste was
adulterated and putrid vegetable sub
taices." When the case came to a hearing
h'i claimant of the products failed to
appear, and the court ordered the to
mato paste destroyed. This is only one
iisUK-? in hundreds of Dr. Wiley's effi
cient work in b half of tho people. Xo
wc-Tider the ioi-il fuod makers say that
their industry is being "ruined." and
tht.r bitter flsht on Wiley is not hard
Hut few people believe that they will
succeed in having Dr. Wiley ousted oi

Rock Island women know how the

kidneys fsll make life a burden.
Backache, hip pains, headache, dizry
spells, distressing urinary troubles,
all tell of sick kidneys and warn you
cf the stealthy approach of dropsy
or Bright's disease. Doan's Kidney
Pills are for the kidneys only. They
attack kidney diseases by striking
at the cause. Here's proof of it In
a Rock Island woman's worda:
Mrs. K. Peterson, 1206 Third
avenue. Rock Island, III., says: "I
blieve that hard work and overexer
tion weakened my kidneys. I suf
fered from severe pains across the
small of my back and on this account
it was difficult for me to stoop or
lift. When I arose m the morning
I was very stiff and lame and my
back was weak. I had often read
about Doan's Kidney Pills In the lo
cal papers and a short time ago I
got a box at the Harper bouse phar
macy. They brought prompt relief.
In fact. I did not think any medicine
could art so quickly. The contents
of one box of Doan's Kidney Pills
drove all symptoms of kidney com
plaint from my system and benefit
ed me in every way."
