Proprietors of Cold Storage Plants
Endeavor to Comply with Change.
New Law Iut Heavy Penalty on
Those Who Do Not Coniplr with
Kb ProvlMone to Snfe
nnnrd the Pnhllc.
Although the cold storage people, did
not like tho cold storage law passed by
the legislature last winter, they have
thus far been complying with tho im
mediate requirements ot tho law In that
they have been busy getting their licenses
from tho food, drug and dairy commis
sioner of tho state. License cost them
$5 a year. Henceforth they may not hold
turkey In cold storuRo eleven years and
then offer tho bird for sale for a tempt
ing Thanksgiving dinner. Henceforth
they will not bo allowed to keep produce
In unsanitary cold storage rooms.
Beginning last week when tho new law
went Into effect it Is no longer permiss
ible to store in the cold storage rooms
any article not Intended for human con.
sumption. This is Intended to prevent
contamination of foodstuffs by odors ot
any matter that might bo offensive.
Stunt Make Reports.
The now law provides that the storago
oeoDle make quarterly reports to the food
commissioner as to tno amount 01
nrmluee In storage at their plant, the
rendition it Is In. and the length of time
It has been In storage. This will enable
the food commissioner to keep some tab
on tho . condition of . the foodstuffs that
will be likely to bo offered for sale to
the public. Tho commissioner will also
make Inspections of the plants.
Another Interesting feature of the law
U that It will possible every three months
to tell how much of foodstuff Is being
held in cold storage. This Is a pnase
of the cold storage business that has
been neglected In tho past and the fact
that the public 'never knew how much
butter and eggs wero stored at any. one
tlmo has In the past caused much con
jecture as to tho possibility of some m-
finanr hfine broucht to bear oy me
storago houses In an effort to boost tho
cost ot living. The quarterly reports win
show whether or not millions of downs
of eggs are being hold off tho market
when -the price of eggs is so high aa to
bo almost prohibitive.
Dntea Are Stamped.
A careful system of labeling is now In-
mailed In the cold storage plants to com
Lply with the new law. The receptacles
containing the articles storea are marheu
with serial numbers and each container
is dated with the true date of entry into
and withdrawal from- cold storago. No
article may be held In cold storage more
than twelve months unless by special
thn food commissioner for
ColiJ storage products may no longer
ta offered for sale on the market wiui
out the buyer being apprised of the fact
that 4t ls,uCold,storga product. It Is
'lilsfrrriiemeanoror'fany.Trnan to-rep-
reseTiTrW'fresn to a customer any artlclo
hut has been In cold storage. An, article
once hold In cold storage for a time and
thn niaced on the market for sale can
not again be placed In cold storage If It
Ir not sold.
The first offense 'for a violation or
any of tho provisions of tho law will cost
the offender 1500. Tho socond may cost
him $1,000 and even a Jail sentence.

the sound, circling abovo tho warBhlps
of tho Pacific rcservo fleet before Thayor
signalled' that he was ready to let go.
The parachute, with Thayer hanging to
tho Iron ring at tho end of tho ropcH,
opened prettily and for a minute it lookod
as if the drop was to bo a perfect ex
hibition. Then Thayer was seen to lot
go his hold, turning over as ho loft tho
parachute. He rolled himself Into a com

striking on his face and loft shoulder.
Mrs. Thayor was In a launch, whloh
was to havo picked Thayer up. It made

went down, but his body did not reap
Thayer rode tho parachuto with one
leg through a loose rope nnd ,ono wrist
fastened with a strong strap and iron
snap to the parachute ring. Examina

showed that this snap had broken when
the, parachute Jerked as it opened.
This was the first time Thayer had

Under the circumstances, tho future

on tho action of the Now York stock
