1& THE ADVOC-ATEL FOOD ADULTERATION. fault and Vegetables la Which it Z ftlalnlj Practiced Recent investigations by the depart inent of agriculture of the state of Pennsylvania on the amount of food adulteration lead to some interesting results. A conservative estimate places the value of the food consumed by the citizens of the state at $400, 000,000, and if to this amount is added the average estimate of adulteration, it follows that there is lost through this means $20,000,000. The examinations made by the de partment make it evident that the fol lowing items rlU mainly cover the worst forms of adulteration: The use of salicylic acid in the preparation of fruit jams, catsup, etc.; in such cases it is introduced for the purpose of pre venting fermentation, and when eaten and it has entered the digestive organs, it prevents to an appreciative extent the proper functions of digestion. Of the samples of buckwheat flour tested, but two were found pure. Three-fifths of the samples ...

VOL. YIIL, NO. 21. TOPEKA, KANSAS, MAY 20, 1896. $1.00 A YEAR MEXICO'S MONEY. A Statement of Economic Conditions In a Bimetallic Country. A great many people are interested in the working of the bimetallic standard in Mexico. Some time ago Congressman Newlanda of Nevada addressed a letter to Alexander R. Shepherd requesting his views on the economic conditions of Mexico. Mr.. Shepherd was for many years a prominent politician, and later 1 a successful Washington business man. Of late years he has spent a great deal of time in Mexico and is well acquainted with the situation in that country. His reply was as follows and indicates that that country is more prosperous than the United States is. He says: "In response to your request to give you a view of the economic conditions of Mexico, as I have found them, while its financial policy has rested on a silver basis, I beg leave to say that it will give me great pleasure to comply with it. "I have been a resident of Mexico since 1880. Wh...

3 T2I22 ADVOCATE. Mat 26, OUR FINANCIAL POLICY. A Few Facta in Regard to the Manasoment of This Govrenment. , Before a gun had been fired in the Civil war, metal money had entirely disappeared from the channels of trade, as It always has In every great emergency In every civilized country on earth, and as It always will. The eld State bank issue was defective In many waya and was not sufficient to 611 the rapidly increasing needs of the times. Something must be done. In this emergency the first greenbacks were issued with full legal tender power. They were .at par and never depreciated. Here was a means at hand of carrying on the war without borrowing. Hut this was not what the wealth of the country wanted.' They wanted a national interest-bearing debt, and to have it the greenback must be crippled. To do this thejexcep tion clause was Inserted. It provided that the greenback should betaken for everything except the interest on the public debt end duties on imports. The effect of th...

wkuaand where the common people are concerned. I refer to the demand m&deon the State of New Tori by the State of Texas, through the requi filtlon of its Governor, for the delivery of persona charged by her authorities with the commission of crime in that State (Texas). They were Kockefeller, the Standard Oil king, and Hunting ton, the railroad magnate, and had they been common people the requisi tlon of the Goyernor of Texas would baye been honored with alacrity. But Goyernor Morton, of New York, of course, declined to do his duty, and added another proof that our country has fallen from its high estate of "equal rights for all and special fayors to none." Without Fear or Favor. Railway Postofflce Clerks. Editor Advocate: There are very few persons in this country who have any idea of the amount of work required of railway postal clerks.

I people there la only one doctrine In common between them that of silver coinage there is much in common be tween Populists on the one hand and the other parties just named, on the other. Most of the Single Taxers are now in our ranks, Nationalists are sat isfied with about all we preach, and as to Socialists, while they do not train with us, we are nearer them than the silver men are. Prohibitionists are with us in all things save one. It is not at all improbable that as to all these parties, could they have but a day or two to confer through accred ited delegates face to face, they would agree on a platform and a national ticket. Together they could poll nearly if not quite 3,000,000 votes. Now, what is there in the way of the silver men uniting with us? The longer they discuss the si...

1896. THE ADVOCATE. THE CIVIL SERVICE ARMY. , About all persons now engaged In the civil service of the government are subject to rules adopted by the Civil Service Commission, as approved by the President. This, when it gets to working perfectly, will divorce the great army of workers from party pol itica, and that was the object in view when the system was inaugurated. The importance of this way of man aging the public service cannot be overestimated. Persons in the govern ment service have long been a source of trouble. I3y reason of their ac quaintance with public men on whose political and social influence they had to rely for position, they became a sort of corruption fund. They made it part of their business to aid in keeping Con gressmen and other persons in office. They rendered valuable assistance in political campaigns, not only by means of personal service, but as well by con tributions of money. The mutual re lations between the statesman and his friends in the departme...

F. In a personal interview the information la obtained that this editorial is the re sult of much consideration by many of the most conservative members; that this question has been under con sideration for more than a year and the official data at hand is so convinc ing that it is useless to attempt to claim that the present monetary con ditions are not working great injury to the order. In part, Editor M. F. Dowd said: "The present monetary condition has been a great injury to our order. The official data received at this office show that we lost in 1803, 30,886 mem bers by suspension for non-payment of dues, and in 181)1 the number dropped was 48,339, a total of 85,225 for the two years, and it is believed that the official reports for 1895 when completed will show nearly as many sus...

Hackney, the well-known Re publican politician who formerly lived in Cowley county, has the following letter in a recent issue of the Cleve land Recorder. It is worth reading: "Editor Recorder: The develop ment of the financial and industrial legislation of this country has been under the control of the Republican party since the war. For more than twenty years the condition of the masses has grown from bad to worse. Every bond that has been issued by Cleveland's administration was under Republican laws, and his power to do bo would have been taken from him by law but for Republican votes. "Every trust and combine having for its object the forcing up of prices and the forcing down of tabor has been done under Republican laws. Every railway turned over to English holders, and every raise in freight and reduction of labor has been done under Republican law. "Every laborer that ...

"1836. THHI ADVOCATE, 9 thirty days ago the Governor expressed hib invincible determination to make the race to the end but within the last few days he has receded from that attitude and will place himself in the hands of hia friends, to withdraw, if they advise it. Those who are in a po sition to know say the Governor's name will not go before the conven tion." Morrill emphatically denlea the story. The Buchan Republicans held a public mass meeting at Kansas City May 8 which was largely attended. The following resolutions, which show the feeling of the citizens assembled, were unanimously adopted: "Resolved, That the citizens of Wyandotte county approve and commend the firm, manly stand taken by Gecrge W. Martin, editor of the Gazette, in his vigorous protests against ballot-box stuffing, and other acts of criminal conduct which caused the disfranchisement of the voters of Wyandotte county and nominated a man for Congressman with delegates chosen by lying, treach ery, hypocrisy, ra...

They are sweet, like the bee's fresh honey Like the bees they have terrible stings: They can bless like the warm, glad sunuhine, And brighten a mneiy me; They can cut, in the strife or anger, Like i an open, two-edged knife.

As to how wide to make, the chute, mine is about two feet, with a plank on one side, so as to close the balance of end of wagon bed, to keep small pigs from getting out.

A grain mixture consisting of four parta ground oats, four parts wheat bran (or middlings, not the finest), and one part linseed meal, will do all that tny mixture will in promoting the kind of growth that is desired.
