THE PURE FOOD BILL.
There has lately been u strenuous
assault made upon the Paddock
pure food bill, which has passed
the senate, has been reported favor
ably iu the house, and to which
consideration will undoubtedly be
given soon. The bill, says the
Sioux City Journal, as its name im
plies, is a measure which was intro
duced by Senator Faddock of
Nebraska. Practically the same
measure was introduced by him in
the last congress and passed the
senate. Hut becaus of the acri
mony and filibustering occasioned
by the Conger lard bill it did not
come up lor cousiueratiou iu ine
It has been violently denounced
especially by some democratic pa
pers, Headed by the M'w lorn
World. It has been characterized
as absurd, as subvei sive of the right
of the state and as dangerously
paternal, and these charges have
been garnished with abusive epi
There has been increasing com
plaint in this country that the gov
eminent was too neglectful of the
adulteration of food and generally
in care for the public health, that
all kinds of deleterious adultera
tions were sold in vast quantitie
to the people, and that a system of
public inspection was necessary.
Now the Paddock food bill is d
signed to be a response to this very
complaint. The intention of its
provisions is to attempt to remedy
swindling in foods, beverages and
medicines. The bill provides for a
system of inspection of these arti
cles entering into interstate com
merce. It organizes, under the
jurisdiction of the department of
agriculture, a section called the
food section of the chemical divi
sion. Chemical experts anu in
spectors are to be employed. Arti
cles which come within the pro
visions of the bill, and which ore
transported from state to state, are
to be submitted, upon demand of
the proper authorities, to analysis.
Penalties are prescribed in case a
manufacturer declines to furnish
samples, and also in case adultera
tions are discovered.- Lincoln Call.

It Glvts Many Advautaire to the Slria
The introduction of smokeless powder
lias had considerable to do withacliiingo
of tactics ou tlw field of battle. Iu tho
absence of the smoke senvu on both
sides, the company officers not only find
it easier to work together, but can con
trol their men and judge the effect of
their fire ou tho enemy to a far Kr,'U'r
dejrree than was formerly possible. From
their point of view this increased powei
of coutrol ruore than compensates the
attack for the increased facility of con
cealment smokeless powder confers o.i
the defense. It is true that the latter
also profits by the same increased power
of control, but they argue that from the
nature of things the defense, striving
only to prevent lving beaten, whereas
the attack fights with the determination
to win, the latter is in a position to make
far better use of this new powder than
the former. Put in another fori, it
comes to this: The heavier and more ue
curat the fire whistling over a trench.
the harder it is to make men raise their
heads over it to take aim. Smokeless
powder lniikes it easier for the attack to
deliver such a fire; hence the difficulties
of the defense will be increased.
Further, in the absence of smoke,
men stationary on the defense cannot
escape the depressing influence of the
dead and wounded lying around them.
but the attack leaves all these evidences
of the fight iK'liind it. So here aguiu
the advantage is on its side.
With reference to the question of the
use of smokeless powders by tho artil
lery, the general idea seems to be that
it was all a gain to the side which
thought more of killing its enemy than
of avoiding Wing killed itself. It enor
mously facilitates the maintenance of
fire discipline within the battery, permits
of continuous fire even at the most rapid
rate, for no smoke interferes with the
laying of the guns, and above all things
cheers the hearts of tho men by enabling
them to see tho results of their fire.
As a means of concealment it is of no
use at all, for even ut extreme ranges of
5,000 yards and upward the flash of dis
charge is alwavs distinctly visible, and
at fighting ranges the flash enables one
to note exactly the position of tho ene
my's guns. This wus not always possi
ble with tho old powders, for tho smoke
obscured tho object and prevented one's
picking np an exact point to aim at.
The artillery will bo far from regret
ting the lo's of the two clouds which
hung, the one iu front of their own and
tho other in front of the enemy's guns.
Smoke is a cover added to that furnish
ed by the ground, and no one has ever
been anxious for his opponent to have
covers which ho himself could not turn
to advantage. If both are deprived of
this cover victory will belong to him
who, all else being equal, can most
skillfully supply the deficiency.
Maneuvers will hereafter probably
take place over larger areas before ac
tual fighting tiegins, and something of
an Indian's craft and natural keenness
will lie needed on tho part of staff offi
cers. Smoke has teen so good a cover
on many occasions that its absence will
impose new conditions, and natural
cover will have to be much more ex
tensively utilized. With the vanishing
Ioetry of the smoke battle the prose of a
new era will begin, in which combat
will bo more like a game of chess in
view of the pieces as a whole, and new
dispositions of old qualities and virtues
will be wanted. Iron Age.

We do not want it. It costs too
much. Every "cheap coat" repre
sents a certain amount of misery
and suffering. The merchant who
buys "cheap" clothes for himself or
family decreases the purchasing
power of his own customers.
The manufacturer who buys only
"cheap" raw material and neces

for is there any inconsistency in
decrying "cheapness" and at the
same time favoring low prices.
There is a reasonable limit that
is desirable, but to go beyond
which is suicidal.
The laborer and capitalist should
