(From a Staff Correspondent.)
LINCOLN, Neb., Nov. 22. (Special Tele
rram.) Food Commissioner J. W. John
son today announced he would adhere to
Ms original Interpretation of the pure food
law and require the stamping of net weight
upon all packages of food. The ruling
cam up on the application of the National
Dlsoult company for permission - to sell
packag-ea of crackers without stamping
the net weight of contents upon them.,
A committee visited Governor Sheldon
and the food commissioner last night and
made representations on behalf of the com
pany, declaring that goods of this kind
Were bought by the package and not by
weight, hence the weight upon the wrap
per was Immaterial.
Today the food commissioner said his
final ruling, after considering the argu
ments of the manufacturers, was that the
law spoke plainly In the case and left him
no discretion. If goods are sold In pack
ages, tba cover must show the weight of
National Association of Fairs.
. November a meetlngof the .National
Association or Slate' fairs" will be "held In
the Auditorium hotel at Chicago. Nebraska
will be represented by Peter Y6ungnrs,
president of the State Board of Agricul
ture, W. R. Mellor secretary and C. H.
Jiudge chairman of tho board of managers.
The purpose of the meeting Is to fix dates
of the state fairs held. In the country.
Nebraska will "apply for her usual dates,
the first week In September. The only con
flict will be with the Minnesota State fair,
which for a number of years has been held
at the same time as the exhibition In the
Cornhusker state.
Secretary Mellor will lead the discussion
at this meeting on the question whether
the reduced passenger fare has lessened
the attendance to the annual fairs. The
question of Issuing passes to fairs will be
discussed at the meeting.
County Clerk la "Sassy."
When Secretary of State Junkln sends
out blanks for county clerks to use in
ending back returns of election, he en
closes a blank marked "duplicate," asking
that this be filled out for the convenience
of the clerk In making up his table in ad
vance. This permits the secretary to have
the figures In tabular form when the can
vassing board meets and makes the work
cf that board merely formal. Ono county
' clerk has written that there is no law
compelling him to send In duplicate re
turns. He informs the secretary that he
has as much time to make them as anyone,
hence he suggests the secretary sit down
and make the returns himself. The actual
returns were sent In a sealed envelope.
This means that the official vote cast at
the last election will not be known until
the canvassing board meets next Monday
aod opens the sealed returns.
Wlnnett Inspects Depot.
- Chairman Wlnnett of the State Railway
commission returned to Lincoln this morn
ing after Inspecting the depot at Columbus,
about which Edgar Howard complained.
After looking at the depot, Pr. Wlnnett
called at the TelegTam office, and finding
Judge Howard out looking for news, he
: proceeded to pi a case of type, after which
he stood the office towel In a rat hole In
the front of the building, as a. gentle re
minder that a stranger had called. The
chairman then reported to the mayor of
the 'city and Informed him that the Union
Peel rto had a nice depot at Columbus,
though no doubt it was too small. He ad
vised the mayor to make some agreement
with the railroad to enlarge the building.
This could be done, the doctor auggested,
by taking the present baggageroom and
converting it Into a waiting room and build
ing a baggageroom onto the depot. He
found the people at Columbus wanted a
real, new, bigger depot. He advised them
"to file their request with the commission,
outlining whst was wanted, if they failed
to come to terms with the company.

Williams la a Wreck.
Since their accident of yesterday after
noon Railway Commissioner Williams and
Rata Clerk Powell are wondering If It had
not been better to have accepted the pro
posal of the Missouri Pacific and permitted
that road to send along a man to guide
the motor car over the road. The railroad
company made this suggestion some time
ago, when the commission contemplated
fouy1ng a motor car. The commission
spurned It. Today Commissioner Williams
Is laid up at homo with a badly sprained
ankle and other bruises, while Rate Clerk
Powell Is plastered with various, salves
and Chairman Wlnnett has resumed the
practice of medicine and is looking after
Judge Williams and Rate Clerk Powell
went out on the motor car, which they
rented from the Burljngtom to Inspect the
tracks of the Missouri Pacific invar' Elm-I
wood. In the. corporate limits ofthat city
about dark last night the car flew the
track going over a street crossing and
with the two men plowed through the
ground for several yards. Commissioner
Williams had one foot badly smashed, but
with the assistance of Mr. Powell, who
only had about a yard of skin knocked off
his shin, he made his way to the hotel
and secured medical attention. This morn
ing Mr. Powell took the obstreperous ma
chine out for exercise, contemplating mak
ing the trip back to Lincoln, but again the
buRlness flew the track, and he lost the
remainder of the skin on the injured leg.
The car was then bundled Into the baggage
car of the next train out of Elmwqod and
the two men rode In like ordinary people.
While both were scratched and both lost
lots of skin, neither Is hurt seriously, and
Judire Williams will be back at the old
stand within a day or two.

Governor .Sheldon went to Columbus this

Crevr for Valentine.
The poetical plea of C. C. Valentine for
a state warrant to be delivered to him In
time to pay for a Thanksgiving goose, has
fallen on deaf ea'rs. The Valentine poetry
was delivered to Pepuy Auditor Cook,
who Is himself a past master In the
poetical line, and instead of the state
warrant there went through the mall to
Omaha today the following addressed to
the court reporter:
The reporters watch with might and main,
To find some slip by us again.
We are llvlntf up to the law you find,
Which causes us to be unkind;
It gives us pain to be so slow
But please be satisfied with crow.

Buildings will meet November 26 to let

It Is the Intention of the state board to
place large sized lights on each corner of
the state house and to light thoroughly
the yard around the building in an artistic
manner. Secretary of State Junkln Is
going to suggest to the state board that
the doors leading to the state house be

PERU, Neb.. Nov. 22.-(Special.)-The
Peru Btate Normal school was criticised
locally and In the state press last summer,
because of alleged misappropriation of the
stats funds In the erection of two cottages
on the campus. It was originally proposed
to erect two cottages out of the waste ma
terial from the other buildings, using also
the old barn in their construction. One
cottage was to be occupied by the head
Janitor, the other by the head engineer.
This plan would give the room now used
by the Janitor In the main building to the
school for classroom use. The plan also
Increased Capacity for .Mental Labor
Since Leaving Off Coffee
Many former coffee drinkers who have
mental work to perform, day after day,
have found a better capacity and a greater
endurance by using Postum Food Coffee,
Instead of ordinary coffee. An Ilia
woman writes: i
"I had drank coffee for about twenty
years, apd finally had what the doctors
called "coffee heart." I was nervous and
extremely despondent; had little mental
or physical strength left, had kidney trou
ble and constipation.
"The first notlceablo benefit derixJ
from the change from coffee to Postum
was the natural action of the kidneys
and bowels. In two weeks my heart action
was greatly Improved and my nerves i
"Then I became less despondent, and the
desire to be active again, showed proof
of renewed physical and mental strength.
I am steadily gaining In physical
strength and brain power. I formerly did
mental work and had to give it up on
account of coffee, but sinos using Postum
I am doing hard mental labor with less .
fatigue than ever before." I

contemplated doing away with the night
watchman, the resident engineer serving to
protect the buildings sufficiently at night.
The State Board of Education approved the
plan after considering It very carefully.
So far only one of the cottages has been
completed. This will be occupied by the
head Janitor, since he was forced out of
the main building and was without a place
for his family. All criticism as to misap
propriation vanished as soon as those who
criticised understood Just how the cottages
are being constructed without cost to the
state, even the labor employed being that
commonly used on the grounds.

Frontier and Mlnlnar Towns Undergo
Remarkable Change In Short
The frontier of the Territory of Arizona,
both In range and mining towns, has under
gone a vast change since spring. The In
hibition of gambling has changed the com
plexion of life In big and little communities
from Tucson to Williams and from Hol
brook to the California line. With the
passing of gambling and the Arizona
gambler much of the "picturesque" (has
gone out of the life of the frontier. The
regrets, however, are few.
The former big bars and saloons are dis
mal, seedy-looking places with their rou
lette tables turned Into lunch counters, and
It may be said that the red light has been
completely snuffed throughout the terri
tory. The "tin horn" sport has sullenly
gone to work and made his wife and family
happy by occasionally distributing his
wages for the household heeds. Also the
shopkeeper's slate has dwindled.
The change was eloquently described by
a territorial legislator in a discussion with
a well-known Arizona character, whose
name, "Speedy" Thurston, describes him.
Thurston was bewailing the lot of Arizona
to the wrltei when tho legislator Inter
rupted and drawled.
"Bud Hawley was talking things over
down to the store last night, and he ad
mits he don't' sell so many neckties and
silk vests as he uster, but he does sell a
whaling sight more of pork and beana
What's more, he gets paid for them."
So you will hear all along the line after
leaving New Mexico. The tradesmen and
wives are rejoicing, while the "undesir
able" utter bitter complaints and discuss
the shortest passage to Nevada or across
the border to New Mexico. Not many gam
blers are crossing to New Mexico, for on
January 1 the no-gambling law will go into
effect In that territory, which Is still suf
ficiently wide open to satisfy the most ad
venturous. The absence of silk vests and neckties
has become very marked In Arizona, where
formerly the prosperous gambler was
pretty generally recognized as one of the
leading citizens. He swaggered and wore
a gun, discussed the ethics of the frontier
with the authority of an unanswerable
philosopher, ran the little political ma
chines as well aa the saloon, and was really
one of the very biggest toads In the pud
dle he had selected as the most fruitful
dip for his greed and skill. Now he has
become an object for ingenious pity. His
former victims, a little puffed by their new
prosperity, publicly sympathize with him
and gloomily assent when he declares the
west Is going to rot and decay.
Arlzonans generally seem rather slow in
realizing that the money they formerly
poured over the gambling tables and Into
the greedy sacks of the sllk-walstccfated
parasites Is legltlmstely their own. S'noe
the old cowboy 4ys, when millions of
head of cattle ranged on the Arizona
plains, thes simple-minded folk have been
endowed with the Instinct of moths, and
were only happy when singeing their
wings. I
The benefits of the new life did not ap
peal to them at first. Cattlemen, miner,
small rancher, loafing Mexican and Indian
earned only that they might gamble It
away. The few savings banks scarcely
knew the small depositor. Railroad men
were always a month or two behind with
their payments at the general store. Their
wives and children had to be satisfied with
calicoes and rough cotton fabrics. To-day
In every little community the sheen of a
silk dress now and then glistens on the
brick sidewalks. Simple entertainments,
such aa dancer and balls, where small
fineries can be displayed, are coming rap
Idly Into vogue. Though It Is still frontier,
it is becoming tamed by all the small arts
and devices that simple folk can plan for
their entertainment.
