They said they would "ride through it" with legal objections, but somehow they never were able to do so. They then hunted for "natural" coloring matters with which to evade the law, but were held up by the gov ernment. Gained and beaten, they now admit that the law is likely to ac complish its purpose. The whole trouble seems to be that manufactur ers are no longer able to buy six cent fat. color it yellow and sell it for but ter at 13 cents or more. The fact is the export trade in oleomargarine and the oil is increasing. In June of this year 13,583,170 pounds of the oil and 955,700 pounds of the grease were ex ported, while in June of last year ex ports were 8,309,706 pounds of oil and only 266,125 pounds of grease. This means a gain of more than 50 per cent in value. The oleo makers seem at last to be on the run, since all their claims and "arguments" have been exploded. AH see now that what they are really after is the right to color six-cent fat and sell it as a counterfeit for more than twice its. value. Rural New Yorker. Nantut-ket, Nantucket. Oxford.
