no end of trouble. The little I ate
caused jiie to bloat with , gas and I
was subject to dull, heavy headaches.

blur before my eyes and I had to
catch myself to keep from falling.
"Well, now, I have gained IS

Tanlac. .. I relish what I eat, with a

House Committee on Agricul
ture Decides Against Elim
ination of Moisture Con
Washington, June S. (Special
Telegram.) The house committee
on agriculture today definitely de
cided there will be no further changes
in ths present grain grading system
for some time to come.
The committee today took up for
consideration the Steenerion bill,
which would eliminate moisture con
tent as a feature in establishing the
grade of wheat.
Secretar of Agriculture Wallace
and Dr. Taylor, head of the bureau
of markets, appeared before the com
mittee and explained they had
adopted means to obviate the legiti
mate objections that might be raised
to the use of moisture content in
grading. Their method is to have
the moisture content or the extent
of foreign substance stated on the
certificate establishing the grade of
any given quantity of wheat. Both
officials held that to eliminate mois
ture content as a feature in grading
would tend to lower the standards
of wheat. '
The committee held with depart
ment officials and defeated the Steen
erson measure, 8 to 2.
' All other grain grading measures
are pushed aside, pending the work
ing out of the new features of the
system worked out by Mr. Wallace
and his Officials.
The committee on agriculture de
cided, also, to take up at once con
sideration of the Capper-Tincher bill
regulating trading in grain futures.
which is substituted for the measure
which was declared unconstitutional
by the supreme court. ' Members of
the senate have said it -was unlikely
this measure could be passed in the
senate this session, but the farm bloc
has decided to get behind it and rush
it through the house, if possible, in
the hope that the senate may be-able
to consider it in the closing hours
of the session.

Not Exempt From
U. S. Supreme Court Holdi
Organizations Liable for
Property Damage by
Members on Strike.
Washington, D. C June 5. Labor
organizations are not exempt from
prosecution under the Sherman anti
trust law, the supreme court today
The court delivered such an opinion
in the celebrated Coronado coal case,
one of the most important pieces of
labor litigation ever to come before
the nation s hiRhest tribunal.
, The court held that labor organi
zations can be held liable for prop
erty and other damages caused by
the. acts of members during strikes.
The decision was delivered by Chief
Justice raft. The case was brought
against the United Mine Workers of
America by the Coronado and
other coal companies, arising out of
the Arkansas strikes ot IV14.
Chief Justice Taft in delivering the
opinion stated that there had been no
misjoinder of parties in the suit as
brought. He discussed at length the
question of the suability of the na
tional and international unions if the
unions were responsible for what was
done, pointing out that in com
mon law unincorporated organizations
could be sued individuals, but from
necessity of existing conditions it was
utterly impossible of doing justice
otherwise than by holding labor
With regard to the United Mine
Workers of America, the court found
that the international ' organization
and its officers did not order the
strike or ratify it, and that they
should not have been made parties
to the suit.
