TonrH to tlio number of nearly 000 aro
in Seattle participating i the twenty
fifth annual convention of the Wom
en's Christian Temperance union and
celebrating in songj in prayer and in
joyful tlinnlcBgivitig the hilver jubilee
of the organization. The best
summary of the work done by the W.
C. T. U. was furnished in the report of
the national president, Mrs. Lillian M.
'Stevens. She said:
Since tho first convention great advance 1ms
been lnadq In tho catiso of purity, total absti

wo consider the largo Influx of foreigners with

Wo cannot bo too Uiatucfiil for tho Kroat. In
fluence exerted by thoso standing at tio head
of some of tho groat industries in requiring to
tal uustlncnco of their employee In reply td

of tho agriculturalists tho majority of these

Wo reoord tho action of Secretary T.iong in

It is dcplorahlo that tho last page of this cen

of war. Wo cannot but pray that the hearts of
those In authority may be moved to conciliate
tho Filipinos as brothors rather than to treat
them us rebels. The ellect of tho conference

-ways seek to bring about tho rejection or ex
pulsion of Hrjgliam II. Koberts from tho Flfty

for us, coming directly under the head of purity,
one of our fundamental principles. In taking
uction at this crucial time wo are oo-opor.itim;

who feel with us that to have an avowed p.riyg

CENSUS OF DAIRY PRODUCTS.
II mt Correct Stntintlcn of Knnii niitl
Knotor)' Dairy l'roiliieli May
Washington, Oct. 10. The law re
quires the statistics for the twelfth
census of dairy products (fnnn and
factory) to be fnken on separate sched
ules. The Division of Agriculture will
take the aluounts of milk and creain
produced and sold, ami the Amount of
money received from their sales; also the
quantity and value of all the butter and
cheese jnade on the farm. On the mumi
fneturesschcdulewill betaken thequan

tories, cooperative and otherwise, to
gether with (lie qunntity and cost of
raw materials (milk andcVealn),;ostof

QUALITY AND NEWS.
Fnmr nml llxccUencc Are Dctcrinln
lnn Isadora In Successful Develop
ment One of the Important l'uiic
tlotiM of l!lKli-ClnN Newspaper.
In presenting interesting phases of
scientific and economic problems, high
class newspapers frequently give in
formation of as great value in their ad
vertising columns us in 'those devoted
to the publication of the principal
events of the tiny r niyd when the fame of
a product is extended bejdntl its natural'
limits into foreign lands, and a large de-.
maud created" throughout Urcutllritaln
nnd lfer Colonic anil the principal" s.e-'
lorts and cities of Europe,, Asia riAiLAf
rica, t becomes a pleasant duty to note
the fact and to tclj, of the points of ex
cellence on which so great a success is
based. We refer to the how - world
famed laxative remedy, Syrup of Figs,
tho product of tlie Onllfornin Fig Syi'up
Company. The merits of this" well
known excellent laxative were first
made known to the. world' through the!
medical iournals and newspapers of
dated, and thus show, what" never here
tofore has been shown, the total yield i the United States; nnd is one of tliedls
of milk in the United States and the i tinct achievements of 'the press, it is
amounts and values of its several prod
ucts. This assertion is based on the as1
sumption that the farmers shall fur
nish to tho enumerators, fully and ac
curately, the information which the
schedules may call for.
In some sections the records of cheese
factory and creamery operations for
the current year are destroyed, agree
ibly to previous vote of directors or
patrons. For ISO!) they should vote, in
stead, to have prepared and preserved,
for the use of the census enumerators,
who will appear on June J, 1000, the
statistics which tho law says shall bo
gathered. In many cases a failure to
do this will prevent the enumerators
from securing any returns, because new
managers, or now secretaries, or new
hoards of control may be in charge on
June 1, 1000, who will know nothing of
the factory statistics of 1S00 and the
figures for ISO!) are the ones the lawsays
shall bo taken.
Farmers who keep no records of their
transactions will llnd themselves in tho
same dilemma, on the arrival of the cen
sus enumerator, as a factory which de
stroys its records. Therefore, Chief
Statistician Powers is appealing to all
of them to prepare in writing, while tlio
necessary tacts are fresh in mind, such
a statement of milk, cream, butter and
cheese products as will enable them to
reply promptly and accurately to the
inquiries which the law says the enu
merators must take. If they shall fail
to do tliis, tho statistics of dairy prod
nets in their county will be incomplete,
nnd will compare unfavorably with
those of counties wherein the returns
aro more accurate.
America's Ytielit Carried Off tlio Third

Highlands, N. .1., Out. 21. In an 18
knot i reo.e, tlio soa covered with white
caps, tlio Columbia won the third race
and tho cup this afternoon, crossing
tho homo lino at'J:!iU:i0, with tho Sham
rock about two-thirds of a mile behind.
Tho challenger crossed tho finish lino
at 52:44 :lfj. As tho yacht winning
three out of llvo races wins the
Ainorioa's cup, tlio trophy is suro to
htay on this side until another chal
lenger is builded. Tlio Columbia won
her first race last Monday. That, like
in to-day's race, was over a course
15 miles and return. Tlio second race,
Tuesday, tho Shamrock's mast broke
and tho defender won by sailing over
tho course alone. Yesterday's contest
-was not finished in tlio time limit. Sir
Thomas liiplou hopes to arrange
another race between tho two yachts,
but tlio result, of course, will have no

Kansas City, Kan., Oct. Ml. About
JI00 workmen employed on the now
Cudahy packinghouse in Armourdale

hired non-union hod carriers and tlio

union hod carriers are negroes and tho
Cudaliy company doo-s not employ ne

sidered skilled labor. '1 ho company's
foreman announced that he would not

'now well known that Syrup of Figs is
an ethical proprietary remedy, ap
proved by the most eminent physicians
everywhere, because it is simple nnd ef
fective, yet pleasant to the taste and ac
ceptable to the system, nnd not only
prompt in its beneficial effects, but also
wholly free from any unpleasant, after
effects. It is frequently referred tons
the remedy of the healthy, because it is
used by people who enjoy good health
and who live well nnd feel well and are
well informed ou nil subjects generally,
including laxatives. In order to get its
i beneficial effects, it is necessary to get
the genuine Syrup of Figs, which is
manufactured by the California Tig
Syrup Co. only.

HISS AND SPIT AT FOES.
CatM of All Spi-olOM Intuitu ely Itepcl
Their Hiii-iiiIcm by a DlNplny
Everybody has seen a cat hump its
auck and hiss and spit at a dog. Even
the youngest kitten instinctively rec
ognizes an enemy and makes a showing
ot' deiianee at its approach. This bluff
at intimidation is general among the
species. It is a curious and remarkable
fact that many dilVcrcnt kinds of crea
tures which have their homes in shal
low holes have a similar habit of spit
ting when an enemy approaches. Fur
thermore, it is probable that tho ex
pression of a cat. at bay is part of the

how general is the horror of the serpent
tribe throughout all nature, and hence
it seems likely that the serpent-like as
pect of the head of an enraged cat, to
gether with its threatening hiss, might
disconcert an enemy sulllcicntly to give
an advantage to the cat.
Curiously enough, eats of all species
have their tails marked transversely
In a way which resembles the marking
of serpents, and several naturalists have
remarked how similar are the sinuous,
waving movements of the tail of an
nngry cat to the movements of the tail
of a snake in a state of excitement. The
true tabby cat, when it is curled up
asleep, lias a curious resemblance to a
coiled serpent, and the same is true of
many wild eats of dillerent varieties
and coming from different parts of the
If this really is an instance of pro
tective, mimicry it is possible that the
chief foe guarded against was the eagle.
Eagles are very fond of cat's flesh, and
it lias been remarked by naturalists in
various parts of the world that these
formidable birds habitually make war
upon the smaller irentures of the kind.
