fit tuba f a P iS JudgerI s s court In this city has found rfrtI tt James White a local grocer guilty of selling adulterated coffee The prose ciltlon was based on a package of ArG buckles Aiiosa coffee The State of Ohio through the Pure Food Commission prosecuted White The case was on trial for nearly a month and attracted national atten o tlon Jill The manufacturers of Arlosa coffee r GrocerWhitecountry were retained to defend him but after a short consultation a ver juryTllevictory Pure Food Commissioner Blackburn has been waging a warfare on spurious food articles and the de apartmen t has been successful The complaint of the State of Ohio was that Arlosa coffee was coated with a substance which concealed defects In the coffee and made it appear better than It Is The State charged this coating or glazing was a favorable medium for the propagation of bacteria Prof G A Kirchmaler of this a well known chemist was the cItyIII pal witness for the State lie had made scientific examinations of sam pies of Arlosa purchased from Grocer White In the open market lIe found that each Arlosa berry contained an average of 300 bacteria Mr Kirch mater further testified that other cof t fees he examined contained few bacteria or none at all He declared that the glazed coffee was not a wholesome food product- Chemlat Schmidt of Cincinnati cor j roborated the testimony of Prof Klrch j maler The State did not present further i testimony- The I defense through the Aruucklcs who prepared this glazed coffee se t chemt t StatestI H W Wiles of the United States Ag I ricultural Department Prof Vaughn oft Ann Arbor University Profs Blelle 1 and Webber of the Ohio State Univer I sity were called to defend Arlosa Dr i Wiley had made a careful examination of the method of manufacturing Arlo 1 1sa He told of the 10000000 eggs used Y v by the Arbuckles yearly In the prepara tion of this glazing On this point In I cross examination the States attorney 1 N deftly drew from him the Information that these eggs might be kept In cold storage by the Arbuckles for a year or two at a time 1 Tluupcrtswhohenrd Dr Wileys were pleased to be able toft ftcatch so famous a chemist The doc Ij tor at one point In his testimony explained very clearly how It Is that theII egg put into the coffee pot by the house I wife settles the coffee He said that I J J t a the heat coagulates the egg and as ItII sinks to the bottom of the pot It carries j the tine particles ofcoffeK with It and j thus clarifies the drink it Is the act of coagulation in the coffee pot that does the work Later on In his cross exam nation he had to admit that when the egg was put on Arlosa coffee at the k factory It became coagulated and as i egg cannot be coagulated but once that the coating on coffee was practically no value as a settler when It reached the coffee pot i Prof Wiley acknowledged that the glazing might be a favorable medium for the propagation of bacteria al though he would not testify positively either way because be was not a bac teriologist I Prof Vaughn of Ann Arbor also a i witness for the Arbuckles said he i found bacteria on Arlosa coffee Prof Blelle another witness for thei defense found any number of lively J bacteria on Ariosa coffee he examined and he agreed that glazed coffee surely Was a more favorable medium for thef fpropagationI of bacteria than unglazed 4coffeePure Food Commissioner Blackburn says The State Is very much elated over Its victory against this corpora t 1 tJonWe are now considering the ad 1 visability of Informing every grocer In i Intracll t the same time give warning to con Burners that the coffee is an adulterat l ed food article The verdict of the jury in this case Is of national importance because a great many other States have pure food laws Uke that of Ohio and It Is natural to suppose that similar action will be taken by other Pure Food Commis sioners to prevent the sale of glazed coffees f J f JaIairaatJIa

they roll the stone from the wells mouth then we water the sheep A scene in Mesopotamia beautifully pastoral A well of water of great value in that region The fields around about it white with three flocks of aheep lying down waiting for the wa tering 1 hear their bleating coming cq the bright air andthe laughter of young iriejx and maidens indulging in rustic repartee 1 look off and I see other flocks of sheep coming Meanwhile Jacob a stranger on the interesting errand of looking for a wife shepherdesscomes her approaching followed by her fa thers sheep It was a memorable meeting Jacob married that shepherdess The Bible account of it is Jacob kissed Rachel and lifted up hit voice and wept It has always been a mystery to me what he found to cry about But before that scene oc curred Jacob accosts the shepherds and asks them why they postpone the slaking of the thirst of their sheep andwhy they did not immediately pro ceed to water them The shepherds reply to the effect We are all good neighbors and as a matter of courtesy we wait until all the sheep of the neighborhood come up Besides that this stone on the wells mouth is some what heavy and several of us take hold of it and push it aside and then the buckets and the troughs are filled and the sheep are satisfied11o cannot until all the flocks are gathered toy gether and till they roll the stone from the wells mouth then we water the sheep Oh this is a thirsty world 1 Hot for the head and blistering for the feet and parching for the tongue The worlds great want is a cool refresh ing satisfying draft We wander around and we find the cistern empty Long and tedious drought has dried tip the worlds fountain but cen turies ago a Shepherd with crook in the shape of a cross and feet cut toA t 1 1 1 asfacross a well a

silver salver Not so ninny publicans and sinners You want to get to Heaven but you must be in a special car with your feet on a Turkish ottoman and a band of music on board the train You do not want to be in company with rustic Jacob and Rachel and be drinking out of the fountain where 10000 sheep have been drinking be fore you You will have to remove the obstacle ol pride or never find your way to the well You will have to come as we came willing to take the water of eternal life iu anyway and at any hand and in any kind of a pitcher crying out Oh Lord Je sus I am dying of thirst Give me the

kept back from the water of life by the stone of an obdurate heart which lies over the mouth of the well You have no more feeling upon this subject than if God had yet to do you the first kindness or you had to do God the first wrong Seated ou His lap all these years ills everlasting arms sheltering you where is your gratitude Where is your morning and evening prayer Where are your consecrated lives I say to you as Daniel said to Belshnzar The God in whose hand thy breath is and all thy way thou hast not glorified If you treated anybody as badly as you have treated God you would have made 500 apologies yea your whole life would have been an apology Three times a day you have been seated at Gods table Spring sum mer autumn and winter He has appropriately appareled you Your health from Him your companion from Him your children from Him your home from Him all the bright surroundings of your life from Him Oh man what dost thou with that hard heart Canst thou not feel one throb of gratitude toward the God that made you and the Christ who came to reticent you and the Holy Ghost who has all these years been importuning you If you could sit downflve minutes under the tree oC a Saviours martyrdom and feel His lifeblood trickling on your fore head and cheek and hands methinks you would get some appreciation of what you owe to a crucified Jesus Heart ot stone relent relent Touched by Jesus cross subdued See His body mangled rent Covered with a gore ot blood Sinful soul what hast thou done Crucified the Eternal Son There are men who are perfectly discontented Unhappy in the past unhappy todaj to be unhappy forever unless you come to this Gospel well This satisfies the soul with a high deep all absorbing and eternal satisfaction It comes andit offers the most unfortunate man so much of this world as is best for him and throws all Heaven into time bargain The wealth of Croesus and all the Rothschilds is only a poor miserable shilling compared with the eternal for tunes that Christ offers you today In the far east there was a king who usedonce a year to get on the scales while on the other side the scales were placed gold and silver and gems 3n deed enough were placed there to balance the king Then at the close of the weighing all those treasures were thrown among the populace But Christ today steps on one side the scales and on the other side are all the treasures of the universe and He says All are yours all height all depth all breadth all eternity all1 are yours We do not appeciate the prom ises of the Gospel Come also to this Gospel well all ye troubled I do not suppose you have escaped Compare your view of this life at 15 years of age with what your view is of it at 40 or 60 or 70 What a great contrast of opin ion Were you right then or are you right now Two cups placed in your hands the one a sweet cup the other a sour cup A cup of joy and a cup of grief Which has been the nearest to being full and out of which have you the more frequently partaken What a different place the cemetery is from what it used to bd Once it was to you a grand city im provement and you went out on the pleasure excursion and you ran laughingly up the mound and you criticised in a light way the epitaph put since the flay when J0tl li cord the bell toll at the gate u vhsh you Vent In with the procession it is a sad place and there is a flood of rush ing memories that suffuse the eye and overmaster the heart Oh you have had trouble trouble trouble God only knows how much you have had It is a wonder you have been able to live through it If I could gather all the griefs of all sorts from these crowded streets and could put them in one scroll neither man nor angel could endure the recitation Well what do you want Would you like to have your property back again Sot you say as a Christian man I was becoming arrogant and I think that is why the Lord took it away I dont want to havt3 In property bacK Well woali you haveyour departed friends back again No you say I couldnt tale the responsibility of bringing them from a tearless realm to a realm 01 tears I couldnt do it Well then what do you want A thousand voices in the audience cry out Comfort Give us comfort For that reason I have rolled away the stone from the wells mouth Come all ye wounded of the flock pursued of the wolves come to the fountain where the Lords sick and bereft ones have come Ah says some one you are not old enough to understand my sorrows You have not been in the world as long as I have and you cant talk to me about my misfortunes in the time of old age Yell I may not have lived as long as you but 1 have been a great deal among old people and I know how they feel about their failing health and about their departed friends and about the loneliness that sometimes strikes through their soulsAfter two persons have lived together for 40 or 50 years and one is taken away what desolation I shall not forget the cry of Dr De Witt of New York when he stood by the open grave of his beloved wife and after the obsequies had ended he looked down into the open place and said 1 arew ellmy honored faithful and beloved wife The bond that bound us is severed Ton art in glory and I am here on earth We shall meet again Farewell farewell You get a little worried for fear that some time you will come to want do you Your children and grandchildren sometimes speak a little sharp to you because of your ailments The Lord will not speak sharp Do you think you will come to want What do you think the Lord isl Are JIb granaries empty Will He feed the raven and the rabbit and the lion in the desert and forget you Whynat uralists tell us that the porpoise will not forsake its wounded and sick mate And do you suppose the Lord of Heaven and earth has not as innoli sympathy as the fish of the seat But you say I am so near worn out and I am of no use to God any more I think the Lord knows whether you are of any more use or not If you were of no more use He would have taken you before this Do you think God has for gotten you because He has taken care of you 70 or SO years He thinks more of you today than He ever did be cause you think more of him May the God of Abraham and Isaac and Ta cob und Paul the aged be your God for ever But I gather all the promises today in a group and 1I ask the shepherds to drive their flocks of lambs nil sheep up to the sparkling supply Behold happy is the man whom God correct eth Though He cause grief yet will He have compassion Many are the afflictions of the righteous but the Lord delivereth him out of them all Weeping may endure for a night but joy conietlj in tli a morning I am determined that no one shall go out of this house uncomforted Yonder is a timid and shrinking soul who seems to hide away from the consolations I am uttering as a child with a sore hand hides away from the physician lest he touch the wound too roughly and the mother has to go andcompel the little patient to come out and see the physician So I come to your timidand shrinking soul today and compel you to come out in the pres ence of the Divine Physician He will not hurt you He has been healing wounds for many years and He will give you gentle and omnipotent medi camentBut people when they have trouble go anywhere rattler than to God De Quincey took opium to get rid of his troubles Charles Lamb took to punch Theodore Hook took to some thing stronger Edwin Forrest took to theatrical dissipation And men have run all around the earth hoping in the quick transit to get away from their misfortunes It has been a dead failure There is onlone well that canslake the thirst of an afflicted spirit and that is the deep and iud haustible well 6f the Gospel But some one in the audience says Notwithstanding all you have said this morning I find no alleviation form troubles Well I am not through yet I have left the most potent consideration for the last 1 am going to soothe you with the thought of Heaven However talkative we may be there will come a time when the stoutest and most emphatic interroga tion will evoke from us no answer As soon as we have closed our lips forth final silence no power on earth can break that taciturnity nut where 0 Christian will be your spirit In a scene oi infinite gladness The spring morning of Heaven waving its blossoms in the bright air Victors fresh from battle showing their scars The rain of earthly sorrow struck through with the mrnbow ofeternal joy In one group Gun and angels and the redeemed Paul and Silas Latimer and K5pey Isaiah and Jeremiah Pay sop and John Milton Gabriel and Michael the archangel Long line of choristers reaching across the hills Seas of joy ashing to the white beach Conquerors marching from gate to patet You OTiony them Oh what a great luck God will gather around I i 0iI theII TaitersI j standing on one side of the well of eternalI rapture your children and standing on the other side of eternal I rapture your Christian ancestry You

work quietly to round up enough members j to pass the Consolidated EJe tricbiil a I1rfitwentorer the round care fully and learned what had been done The newspapers were full of the matter 1 and everywhere throughout the state the bill was denounced as an outrage upon the public The legislators were frightened at the wide spread opposition and many who orJ f dinarily could have been reached in one way or another were afraid to i brave the storm Treat remained cool and confident J and within two weeks it was given out cpiietly that lour members had been added to those formerly pledged to support the measure There was still one vote lacking and it seemed that it was impossible to get it Treat smiled imperturbably and said he would How he expected to do it the oldest politicians at the capital could Z not cuess Meantime Mrs Treat had remained wholly oblivious to the great contest Her brilliant attainments her modest demeanor her charming and ingen ious manner and her pervading per sonality won her friends everywhere in the society of the capital She dressed with the most exquisite taste t and at once upon her appearance in the functions of the official set at r tracted the attention and admiration t ofal1 men Among those was Ilenr Raymond one of the most brillian- aucl conspicuous members of the legislature a man of unusual gifts who had won pronounced success in his profession and who came from a dis I tinge shed family Raymond wa classed among the few members who I were acknowledged on all sides as be ing absolutely incorruptible Pos sessed of an ample income from hi profession he had accepted the nom ination to the legislature at consider able personal cost solely from a con viction that it was his duty to the Mate Back of this there may have been an ambition reaching far out and upwards into the future but if so hisI nearest confidants did not know it In any event his public career had been dominated by the highest ideals i aadhe was the boast and pride of the txstterelejnent among the citizens of kix districtaI s i It happened about the time that th Consolidated Electric bills needed passagenp ttleientuedbetweenthics L strong powerful man

with all the science of long experience Mrs hat did not throw herself at Raymond nor in any open way lead him into closer But situations occurred and things happened by the sheerest accident of course which throw himImore and more into her company and appealed more and strongly both tothis physical and intellectual naturetThe finale came one soft spring evening during a reception at the ofgovernors mansion when after a I dance and a few moments of sparkling repartee at the refreshment table they had wandered out under the great trees and among the velvety lawns and fragrant flowers of the Itgreat grounds surrounding the house The affair had begun to be noticed and many were the whispered won ders that Treat should remain oblivious to the apparent infatuation of Raymond for Mrs Treat and the equally apparent acquiescence on her part to his eager pursuit For Treat with all his reputation as an unscrupulous lobbyist carried always the part of a selfrespecting gentleman J and it was generally believed that his wife played no part In hislpolitical schemes This was borne out by the childlike ingenuousness displayed by the woman at all times regarding the case in hand She had time and time again when talking to the op M ponents of the Consolidated Electric bill asked with eyes filled with won der and reproach how it could be that men trusted and honored by their fellowcitiens could think of betraying their trust by voting for such a horrid measure I Down amongthegrcfttoaks through which the twilight struggled with its proverbial seductiveness and with the scent of the springtime in the llaymond paused suddenly in the promenade and turning impetuously o the woman cried out I cannot stand this longer Your a intoxicates me beyond con rol There can be but one meaning

world its ideals and stimlII ards its condemnation or comrnenda fion and live and Tote forever He had grasped her hand during this passionate speech and his fllcej was close to hers and his eyes werellooking into hers with an expression- so intense that it lacked little of bypI notism In all her life she newer had felt her pulses throb as they did unJder the spell of this masterful man In an instant her passionate nature realized the difference between thIsJ man and the cold intellectual personality of Harold Treat Rut she was not a creature of impulses and shett recovered herself with an effort Do you love me so entirely sheI askedWhat more can T do to prove it he replied still retaining her hand I am willing to give up friends ambi tion the respect of my people and the world all the reputation acquired by the labor of a score of years No not ready but eager It is all there is in life for me I Senator she said steadily it i5I of the utmost importance to my happiness I that the Consolidated Electric i bill is passed You can accomplish it 1 Will you do that for me It is all I ask and surely so great a love can concede that much In an instant she wasYherthandsIThen Henry Raymond rose to the height of the splendid powers with which he was gifted and which had reputationsI see it all he said You think you are a stoolpigeon for Treat But you are not You are so much

eyes to his caught the spark of passion and her emotional t nature exploded She fell into his armsThe next day was the most exciting ever known in the capital It is doubt ful which created the greatest com ment the fall of Henry Raymond or that of Amy Treat It broke Treat heart andhis spirit The Consolidates d Electric bills failed to pass and Trea newer turned another trick He spent years

zeal it is lauded by Methodist bishops who know better as the party of progress and benevolenw and withal favorable to prohibition and missionaries Some other denominations have been almost as great partisans of the republican party and the great and good Mr Mc Kinley As the reverse of this the democrats were a wicked and worth less crew allied with the rum ppw er and steeped in all kinds of political heresiesSome few years ago these ardent republican friends of reform instituted a political crusade against lotteries and polygamy and made Washington howl with their outcries for congress to pass laws to prohibit them Congress was willing and passed prohibitory laws against both for a good strong howl well prolonged nearly always brings the average congress peopleNowagainst Jotteries which the great moral sense of the countiry required should be suppressed the first we know this holier than thou republic an administration has gone into the lottery business on its own account The greatest land lottery scheme ever devised has been established by the president and his cabinet and the drawing has been supervised and carriedon by United States officials The prizes are 11000 tracts of land in the Indian territory and there are 160000 persons competing for the chance to obtain them That iis an extraordinary spectacle of a government breaking its own laws lint that is a small thing compared C to the other laws of the United States tha tare continually being broken and the transgressors paid to do so by this same republican administration by compounding the felonies of slavery and polygamy in the Siilu section of the Philippines The sultan and his dotees are monthly receiving pay from the United States with the agreement that these twin relics of barbarism are not to be interfered with and are indeed fostered by our republican ad ministration by the payments of the money which allow more slaves and wives to be purchased and main tainedWhat a howl thrl wouUI haws been from end to end of the United States if a democratic administration had broken the laws and fostered the in fainoiis immoralities of slavery and polygamy and instituted an immoral lottery to

TARIFF OUT An Inane Tlint the Protected Troat- Voulill llUr to See Dropped from Iolitlcit The nonchalant if not impudent way in which the tariff trusts sell their products in this protected country for nearly twice what they get for them in unprotected coun tries may again force the tariff ques tion into politics This would be un fortunate for business is always dis turbed so the protectionists tell us when the tariff is being discussed It would also be unfortunate to have the farmers and laborers understand what a hoary burden the tariff places upon their backs and how it is slowly but surely dividing our people into classes the rich and the poor When these citizens realize the wrong and injustice in protection they arc liked Ily to become discontented and to be gin that political division into parties mentioned by exUnited States At torney General Wayne MacVeigh in his recent address at Harvard lIe said Tic alignment of the two great political divisions of American voters who will sooner or later strug gle against each other for the pos session of the government wilt in evitably be upon this basis The party of the contented will be ranged under one banner and the party of the discontented will be ranged under the other and the alignment will steadily develop increasing sharpness and division until the party of the discontented being the majority has obtained the
