The full text of Keudy's liquor 1tw published in Thursday's Astoiuan, has occasioned considerable discussion. It is thought by many that tho state is vir tually without any liquor law, as the act repeals the law heretofore existing but fails to provide any penalty for violation of thelaw passed by the late legislature. It would also appear that tho county court has no jurisdiction in the matter of city licenses, they being under the control of the city council. The matter would seem to be as badly mixed as the question of adjournment. The spring opens lively at Tacoma. There is a general row in the police force. The mayor is after the police judge with "a sharp stick;"' the street superintendent it charged with illegal proceedings; the city charter is declared defective; the temperance folks are going to run a municipal ticket; the leading saloon keeper rs mad because the city council won't give him a license; the Chinese are getting troublesome, and take it alto- ether, our friends at Tacoma seem to avo enough bit off to keep them busy chewing for" awhile.

The act to prevent deception in the sale of dairy products .vas passed by the legislature February 20, and i.s now a law. The first jwvtinn provides that no person shall sell or exchange, or expose for sale or excuKtiLv, any unclean, unhealthy, adulter: ird or unwholesome milk, or shall offer for sale any article of food made front the same or of cream from the same. Sec. 2. No person shall keep cows for the production of milk for market or for sale or exchange, or for manufactur ing the same into articles of food, in a crowded or unhealthy condition, or feed the cows on food that is unhealthy and produces impure, diseased or cnwnoie- hoiec milk. Sec. 3. No person or persons shall sell. supply or offer for sale or exchange any oleaginous substances, or any compound of the same, other than that produced Irom unadulterated mute, or cream ot the same, unless the same and the package containing the same shall be marked so as to plainly establish its true character' and distinguished it from true, genuine dairy products; and in any public dining or e'ating room where imitation dairy product or products are used as an article of food, the bill of fare used in such din ing or eating room shall state the fact m the same sized tpye as is used in printing the body of said bill of fare; or if no bill of fare is used, then in a conspicuous place of said room, easily seen by any one entering said room, shall be staled the name or names of such imitation dairy products used, in letters large enough to bo easily distinguished or read from paid entrance. Sec. 4. Whoever violates the provisions of any of tha above sections shall bs guilty of misdemeanor, and on conviction thereof shall be punished by a fine of not less t ban $100 nor more than $500, nor less than six mouths nor more than one yoar imprisonment, or both such fiuo and imprisonment. There are eight other sections which provide for the appoint 1. eat of a dairy commissioner and defiue his duties; pro vides for the appropriation of ...ouii to carrv the act into effect, etc. Soai? tfru I.ire. Some men's liv are like the llow of the Columbia. Cradled rnsong the tem pests and avalanches of adversity, they corns forth to glide along tranquilly for a while, gathering strength with their progress; and then, forced on by the irri sistible law of necessity, they enter the precipitous canyons of opposition tj be dashed to pieces among their sharp crags; again emerging, their volume of strength and wisdom widened and deepened through tha tributary channels of expe rience, they roll on majestically for a period, wheu the cascades are again en countered and overcome; and so on, until at last amid roaring breakers and storm tossed spray, they are swallowed up in tho pacific waters of eternity. The bright rainbows of hope and dark clouds of de spair alternate unceasingly. But the life of that man who has never encountered and overcome opposition is a dead blank ho has lived for nothing. As the great Columbia on the terrestrial map, with its furious and dissipating cataracts and cascades, so is the life-record of the act ive man of various fortunes on the chart of human existence. He is too conspicu ous a figure to bo overlooked; and where he disappears from the theater of action is a fitting place to erect beacons to guide and warn others. II. AT. McGiiirc. Ijc?Ilad That Now. History will take care of tho great events of to-day and hand them down lo our greatgrandchildren in many a ponderous volume; but the more inter esting picture of tho daily life of their ancestors will have to bo made from tho advertisements now printed in tho daily papers. The Bomans wrote their adver tisement and notices on the blank wall3 of buildings, and theso, as we find them in Pompeii to-day, give an animated and life-like representation of tho very things we desire to know about this once gay and pk-asuro-loving people. But mod em life reflects its interesting little phases, moods, rivalries and concerns in the pages of the daily journal; and a hundred years hence the advertisements in soma well preserved copy of Tuu As wan will give a more vivid picture of what is going on in the city to-day than all tho solemn histories furnish. It is the advertiser who writes for posterity, so if yon want to immortalize yourself now is a splendid opportunity. ttt!'Mrns Arnica Sttlvr.

EXCITEMENT UNABATED. That Remarkable Experience of a Rochester Physician Fully Au thenticated. Cleveland, O., ITerM. Yesterday and th day before we copied into our columns from the Roch ester, N.

The town-crier of Nantucket, William D. Clark, came to Boston the other day and is doing the town from oua of the hotels as a base of operations. He is a slim, nervous rana. with restle blue eyes, and boars with him the unmistak able tokens of loug r-nl patient study 01 his sea-girt home. In the cour of a con versation he spoke of his tluttr.. at Immr and the- motive- that brought him to Bos ton. "You see," said he. "wc get kind o loueome down there arter the summer visitors are gone, and I came up to lios ton. to see what it v.-as like. There ar nicepc-opie in Itfi'itucket. mighty r.ice. and civil tce: just en nolite as cia. !?. Everyl-cdy says so. They've got seme tine women down there, too. Pretty girl.- lhat'd make you a good wife, lots of 'em. if you haven't got una now. 1'ou go there now and you'll have a good time. I'll war rant. Sliding and skating and candy parties thick enough. Good time's going to 'em winters, sura's you're 'live. What do they do at candy p'aities, did you say'r Oh, kissing aud talking; mostly "talking for me. I don't like kissing: not much of it. Kinder soft. I think. 'I am 'JS years old, and have been town crier, with my bell and horn, since f was 20. Not a drop of liquor ever went into my mouth, aud no man can say I take it. They are all good people, and they all like me tip-top. and use me first class. I'm civil to everybody that uses mo right. I've got manners enough. No trouble about that. I don't know what they'd do without me there. I'd like to see 'em get along," and ha laughed at the idea of Nantucket without the town-crier. "Guess they'll be glad to seo me back agiu. I had lots of presents from them nnd from people in Boston on my birth day. The trouble is I have too much to do Too much care on my mind. What 1 do is worth S.00 a year "if it's worth a cent. When n vessel gets ashore, or the re's a fire or an auction in town, the first thing they do is to send for mo, nnd I run all over town, blowing my horn nnd ringing my bell to wake em ut. Make an awful noise, I tell you. You ought to hear me. It would make you laugh to see me go it. That ain't nil I do, either. I sell papers. Golly, 1 nearly lose my head sometime?. Lord bless you! they'd never know there was a fire if I didn't go an wake em up. Yon ought to see em turn out an' run when I blow my horn. Scart nearly to death, true's yer live. A fire scares 'em cwfully." "While he was talking an alarm vs sounded from box 7;.. What's that! Fire?" siid he jump ing and taking his hat instinctively. When told that it w.is he asked if tho people were going to it. On being told that all the inhabitants did not go to tires in Boston, he fell hick in his chair and exclaimed: "Gracious, that's queer. All the k.-c-ple go to fires in Nantucket, men an' boys nnd women. A fire scares 'cm nearly to death. Don't get over it for a week. Suppose you get used to it here, but they never would at Nantucket. Yo have four hand tubs at our place an' they all go. It is a good force, not so good as your'n of course, but good, all the same. Two men sit up in the tower an' keep watch. They go mint ten o'c'ock an. stay till daylight. First one watches an hour and "then t'other. Cold np there winters, awful cold aomctimos. Bat they are paid for it. uive era :si u night. That's good pny for what they do. Soou's they see a blaze they call me up, and I go around with ray bell and horn, making a big noige. They turn out spry and run to tho fire, i'd think you'd get all mixed up at fires hero" and wouldn't know where to go. Hope yon don't havo many, for fire's hard lo mas ter a good servant, but a hard master, as the saying is. Better keep it at arm's length. That's my idee. 'Now, if you'll come down to Nantuck et we'll u"yoa first-rate. Show you all over the town and introduce yon to all the pretty girls. Gome down and rtee me." lltritmi (Hn'j. El Tru?
