A Profound Enigma.
Written for The Chisf,
"I see them on their winding way,"
About the streets they run and play.
In many a fight and fuss are seen.
Because they arc so dogged mean.
"When dog-days coTnc and pools abound,
Thpeskv critters will be found,
To cool their skins aud wet their hair.
Dogmatically wallowing there.
Then out they go upon the street,
And run between my twelve inch feet,
Ther soil my sboes in such away.
Dog on it! I could almost say.
At night aboat my house they prowl.
And simp, and snarl, aud bark, and howf ;
I fling at them, witli might and main,
My walking-stick, my dogwood caue.
I scatter them with whine and yelp.
An1 fain would ask my neighbor's help.

In the New York Legislature.
The following taken from "The Oil
Paint and Drug Reporter," refers to a
new bill just introduced in the legis
lature of New York State:
"The latest development in the
baking powder war, is the introduc
tion of a bill iu the Legislature of
this State, requiring all packages of
baking powder wh'ch contain ammon
ia to be branded with a statement of
that fact in large type on the label.
Now while the ammonia contention
is on, why cannot the law give
the public the benefit of the
doubt? Wholly unprejudiced people
are certainly not willing to be dosed
with the substance acknowledged as a
poison, simply because scientists,
some of whom are not even physiolo
gists, disagree as to its potency."
A similar bill was introduced last
April but it is shrewdly surmised that
the influence of interested parties pre
vented its passage. The provisions
of the present bill arc so just that it
probably will soon become a law.
This will be welcome news to tjc
manufactures of pure Crsani of Tartar
baking powders, the most prominent
of whom is the Price Baking Powder
Company, of Chicago ind St. Louis,
makers of Dr. Priced Cream Baking
Powder, who have always made a

notwithstanding (he temptations of
adulteration suggested by the enor

pure, by means of -garbled official re

employees dubbed professor, doctor or
