State Food and Dairy Commission Hs
Trouble Forcing Mannfactarcra
to Obey the Pare Food
(From a Staff Correspondent)
DBS MOINES, March 23. (Special.)
If the plans under way by the State
Board of Agriculture are perfected the
1908 state fair will be the best the de
partment has ever given. For some
years the department has had In mind
putting on an additional night attraction,
and the most attractive feature of the
character that ha appealed to the board
has been a horse show. The matter has
been considered before, but In the past
the board haa been unable to get the
electricity necessary for the grounds
and buildings at rtlaht and the horse show
haa had to wait.
This year it is possible that this show
will be put on. If It la It will be a
complete horse show and one of tha
finest In the country. Tha very best
horses In tha country are available at
the time of the 1908 Iowa State fair, for
tha Iowa fair la ona of the first held
and there are no big horse shows
scheduled for that time. It is possible
this year to have all the electric lights
necessary and the big stock pavilion at
the fair grounds furnishes ample and very
well-adapted space for the attraction.
Clrcna Features to Be Added. ,
It la proposed In addition to showing
the finest carriage and saddle and "high
school" horses to add some attractive
vaudeville and circus features, such as
bareback riding and the like. It Is be
lleved that an attractive horse show can
be put on that will rival the fireworks
attraction that Is given before the amphi
theater. The amphitheater has never
been able to accommodate the crowds
that have sought admission to the night
attraction and It is expected that the
horse show will attract aome of the
crowd. It Is believed that It will cer
tainly be a money maker and that many
will go to the grounds two nlghte and
see both.
Whether the horse show Is finally de
elded upon or not. It Is assured that the
horse exhibit this year will be one of
the finest that the fair haa ever had.
Prof. Curtlss of the State Agricultural
college at Ames, who Is superintendent
of this department. Is already In touch
with some of, the greatest horse breeders
of the country and the Inquiries that
reach him and the contracts for space
already made give assurance that the ex
hlblt will be especially fine.
This year the fair will open on Batur
day Instead of Monday and will be two
days longer than formerly.
One of the
plans is to make Saturday Union Labor
day and have Gompers and Mitchell ad
dress the union men during the day.
Enforcing- Part Food Law.
The state food and dairy commission of
fice Is having troubles all Its own in en
deavoring to convince some of the food
manufacturers that they must obey the
law. The department is dally In receipt of
letters from some manufacturers who are
continually endeavoring to enter Into nego
tiations with the department as to how the
pure food law should be Interpreted. Two
of these obstreperous and voluminous let
ter writers have been arrested for violating
the pure food law, but this does not deter
them from writing more letters.
One manufacturer makes aome pancake
flour which he Is determined to call buck
wheat flour In spite of the fact that part
of It is wheat flour. The new law pro
vides that the percentage of the Ingredi
ents must be placed on the outside of the
can cr package, and provides further that
the can or package must not be mislabeled.
In other words It must not say "Buckwheat
Flour" when It is half wheat flour. Not
but that It may be better for pancakes
with some wheat In It, but that the people
have" a light to know what they are buy
ing. All but a very small per cent of the food
manufacturers of Iowa are now studiously
obeying the state pure food law. There Is
but a small per cent that Is not, and this
small per cent lis rapidly coming into line
because of the imposition of fines by Justice
courts. One manufacturer of a pancake
flour who formerly labeled it "Pure Buck
wheat Pancake Flour," has, since the pure
food law went Into effect, changed the
label to some fancy name, but still calls It
"buckwheat." Commissioner Wright holds
that the packages are mlsbranded, for they
still hold out the Idea that tha stuff is
pure buckwheat. In order to Induce the
manufacturer to take the same view of
the matter, however, he was forced to file
a complaint and have the man arrested.
Thrift la Recovering.
Adjutant General W. H. Thrift, who
three weeks ago fell and broke three ribs,
was at his office today. He remained but
a short time. He expects, however, to be
able to take up his work regularly again
In a few days.

To Eradicate Tnhorealoala.
Some Investigation Is being made of the
"Bang method" of eradicating tuberculosis
among cattle and hogs in this state. The
method is being used in Denmark with
some success. There are but two methods.
Ouo la to kUl tli animal The other Is the
g method," and this on first sugges
tion seems the more popular wtlh the farm
ers. It has been discovered by tests that
cattle and hogs afflicted wtlh tuberculosis
do not Inherit the disease nor Impart It to
their young, except after birth. They are
found to be aa good for breeding purposes
though not affected for some time. The
method consists In making frequent tests
and keeping the affected animals separate
from the others. As soon as the calf Is
dropped It Is separated from the cow and
fed on other milk or else on the mother's
milk only after it Is sterilised. If success
ful this will save the farmers and the state
much money.

Ambassador to Berlin Talks of Con
structing; Homes for Dip
loraats Abroad.
BERLIN, March 23. The correspondent
of the Associated Press inquired recently
of Charlemagne Tower, American ambas
sador in Berlin, whether it is true that
the government Intends to buy buildings
for Its embassies in the capitals of Eu
rope. Mr. Tower replied that he knew
nothing officially as yet, although he un
derstands that congress Is now consider
ing the expediency of buying such houses,
at least in London, Paris and Berlin.
In answer to a question as to the Im
portance of such a step, Mr. Tower said:
"Yes, we need such buildings for our
diplomatic missions in Europe, and the
fact that we need them very badly is
precisely the reason why we should not
be hasty in our decision, but should se
lect with care. An embassy building
that might have seemed suitable and
fully sufficient twenty years ago would
be absolutely incommensurate today, be
cause the United States plays a very dif
ferent part in the world from what it
did twenty years ago, and It Is bound
to Increase In importance and power in
twenty years to oome.
"The question of expense is, of course,
a very serious one; for, after you have
got your house you have not finished;
you have. In fact. Just begun. There it
still remains to be the whole subject of
the keeping and ' repairs to your prop
erty, the lighting- and heating, the en
tertaining and the expense of living of
your ambasaador and his family. This
touches the question of the salary, which,
as things go, is today totally inadeauate
in the United States service.
' 4T a m . .
inueea, ir is not generally known, but
it Is a fact, that with tha salary of the
present time the United States govern
ment Is the most difficult government
In the world for an ambassador to serve
properly, because with 117,000 a year he
is obliged to rent a house, meet his per
sonal and domestic expenses and enter
tain according to bis official position In
the country to which he Is accredited.
This Is Impossible and it has led to the
belief In America that no one but a rich
man can accept the appointment to an
embassy. The Idea Is a bad one for the
country; it la totally un-American and
entirely wrong in principle.
"It Is a fact that many of the ablest
and most suitable men that we have In
America are not rich men. From this
point of view the question ought to be
considered seriously at home."

Report for Tear Compiled and Sent to
Total Ontpnt of One Honored and
Slaty Factories la Nehraaku,
but Not Total Nnmber
The collector of Internal revenue for Ne
braska will today forward to Washington
Ms annual report, showing the business of
all the cigar factories of the state for
tha calendar year, 1907.
While In many of the older states fac
tories are found where not only cigars but
also cheroots, stogies and cigarettes are
manufactured, the business In Nebraska
has thus far been confined to the making
of the regulation cigar, taxable by the
government at the rate of $3 per thousand,
the law forbidding cigarette making. These
ordinarily weigh from ten to fifteen pounds
to the thousand. Small cigars weighing
less than three pounds to the thousand
are taxable at $1.08 per thousand, while
cigarettes of the common type are taxable
at only M cents per thousand. However,
goods of the latter classes are not made in
Nnmber of Factorlca In State.
There are at present in this state 160 cigar
factories, and their combined output in
1907 waa 28.031.7S9 cigars. While these were
all consumed at home, the number does
not represent the entire consumption by
During the year 1907 the accounts of 219
cigar factories were handled, thirty-eight
factories were opened and fifty-nine were
closed. This Indicates a decrease of twenty-one
since 1906. This falling off In the
number doing business does not Indicate a
heavy reduction of output, for while the
203 factories In 1906 made 2S.292.826 cigars,
the 1907 report shows the 219 factories open
for all or a part of the year put out a
total product that numbered only about
260,000 less, 28.031,789.
The majority of factories In this stato
are small and a dozen leading ones produce
over half of the entire Nebraska product
In 1907 there were six factories in the state
producing over 1,000,000 cigars each, . seven
more producing from 600,000 to 1,000,000
each, and twelve more producing from 200,
000 to 500.000 each. The cities where these
larger factories tire located are: Omaha,
Hastings, Fremont, Grand Island, Superior,
Lincoln, Plattsmouth, Falls City, Kearney,
Hebron and Wllber. Many other towns In
the state have factories supplying the local
demand, these larger ones doing something
of a Jobbing trade also.
Close Tab on Business.
Close tab Is kept on the business of all
the factories, their premises being bonded
and the operations subject to severe scru
tiny by revenue deputies. Every pound of
leaf tobacco, the raw material, that Is
received In the factories. Is known to the
revenue office, and manufacturers are ex
pected to turn out 1,000 cigars from every
twenty-five pounds of "leaf.". If their re
ported output Is. not up to this standard
they are assessed the tax on the deficiency.
Little evasion of the government regula
tions in this matter is reported and no
serious delinquencies are reported.
Nebraska manufacturers used 650,000
pounds of leaf tobacco last year In making
their 28,000,000 cigars. This was an average
of nineteen and a half pounds for each
thousand cigars produced. As the finished
product weighs from ten to fifteen pounds
net, according to size, the difference rep
resents the coarse stems of the weed dis
carded by the manufacturer before rolling
tha cigar.
