It fro mthe .skies," remarked .'Internal
Revenue Agent Reed, as he proceed od to
wrap typewritten notations around a' Job
lot of tin cans on his desk. .. ' -
The cans contained samples from four
lots of tub butter, taken In charge by ono
of the field agents of the department, - at
Marshalltown, la., Friday, The tubs ' con
tained In all 1750 pounds of butter. On
examination the butter was found to con
tain from 17 to 21 per cent of moisture;
which Is Illegal. ' The moisture content of
butter may not legally exceed 18 per cent,
and the best butter contains only 9 to U
per cent I
In the case of a selsure of this kind, the
government collects a tax of 10 cents, a
pound on the butter and a manufacturer's
tax at tOOO . on each Individual lot -cf
adulterated stuff. In spite of this, some
man In the butter business are continually
taking chances. with Uncle Sam's field
agents. If they get away with a shipment
or two of the overloaded buter whether
cottonseed oil or water be used they ' can
afford to pay the $600 and the 10 cents a
pound and still be sway ahead' of '.the
game, with butter ' sailing along at . Its;

Where adulterated butter is 'seized the
owners can reclaim It, after, paying J the
penalty, take out ths excess water or other
adulterant, under ths supervision of a gov-'
eminent agent, and then dispose of the
legitimate product; or they can 'Jot , it , re
main in the bands of ths government
agents,-when It will be sold after a-certain
time for what It will tiring. Carload
lots have been seised on the eastern snd
western coasts very recently, and ' only a
few days ago one carload of suspected
butter was released In Omaha, after proper
reparation had been made to the- govern
ment and the stuff worked over.
The overloaded butter seised at Marshall
town waa the product of creameries in that
vicinity. Internal Revenue Agent Reed
says the Omaha butter makers are all
complying pretty strictly with the ' law.
Other parties sometimes buy ths produot
of Omaha oreameriee and proceed to In
crease tho quantity by Injecting water or

On request of the secretary of agriculture.
United States District Attorney Howell
went to Lincoln and secured an order
from Judge T. C. Munger for the libeling
snd selsure of a shipment of Ice creem
cones made by the Star Wafer oompany of
Oklahoma' City to tbe Waterloo Creamery
company of Omaha.
The cones, to the number of lM,tOO, were
stored in the custody of Kennedy at Par
sons, st 1017 North Seventeenth street,
where Deputy Marshal Henry P. Has
and a representative of the Department
of Agrloulture found them Saturday morn
ing and took them in charge. In a case
of this kind It seems there Is nothing to do
but destroy the conee, which are alleged
to contain boraolc add as a preservative.
This is the first case of a libel being
placed on loe cream cones In this district
District Attorney Howell says similar
selsures are being made In other parts of
the country, and the Intention of Secretary
Wilson and his staff seems to be to dis
