What is this?
Optical character recognition (OCR) is an automated process that converts a digital image containing numbers and letters into computer-readable numbers and letters. The search engine used on this web site searches OCR-generated text for the word or phrase you are looking for. Please note that OCR is not 100 percent accurate. If the original image is blurry, has extraneous marks, or contains ornate font styles or very small text, the OCR process will produce nonsense characters, extraneous spaces, and other errors, such as those you may see on this page. In addition, the OCR process cannot interpret images and may ignore them or render them as strings of nonsense characters. Despite these drawbacks, OCR remains a powerful tool for making newspaper pages accessible by searching.

In So much haa been said about th* prevalence of food adulteration In the United State* that many nervous per­ son* have become alarmed about the Integrity of tbelr stomachs. They are beginning to fear they will have to limit themselves to vegetables u d boiled eggs. It will be a comfort for tbess persona to be assured by a com petent authority that they have been worrying themselves unnecessarily Prof. Wiley of the Agricultural De­ partment, who has been helping th* Senate Committee on Food Adulter­ ants In Its Investigations, rebukes th* alarmists who have asserted that near, ly all food product* for sale In the gro­ ceries are whet they should not lie He eeys: “You may select a hundred sample* of food, bought at random 1* the public market, and you will fluff that hardly 6 per cent, of them are adulterated.\ He says further that “there le little or no adulteration of our staple article* of food. Take flour, sugar, meat, and other etaplaa, and they wlH not be found to be adulter­ ated.\ Thl* 1* a consolation. The Pro- fesoor doe* not deny thet there are tome adulterations—not all Injurious to health, however—and be I* in favor of th* enactment of t pure food lew which •hell prohibit th* use of harmful adul­ terants, and which shall give notice to consumer! when harmful one* are used, so tbey may know they are buy­ ing oleomargarine, for Instance, and not fancy they are buying butter. An authoritative assurance thet 96 per cent of food product* le beyond re­ proach ought to dispel the fears of con turners. When they make a purchase the chance* are nineteen to one they will not be cheated. The odd* are not so much In their favor In the horse market or at a primary election. THK SIRDAR'S OAMEL OORP8.

She stood erect la the spring sunshine, looking over e net­ work of railroad track*, across to the swUehouse where Kathleen had taken Fergus O’Hnre’s dinner. Nellie Oarney was still little more than a girl. Her face wa* arch and sweet, her eyes bright her hair black and curly. The wind blew her calico dress sway from her fine figure. \And you eay that ehe’e a widow,” John Conover remarked to Fergus. “Not long 1 venture.” “Three year,” said Fergus, panting a little. “Not for any fault of the b’y*.

He had just come from the Eastern States and had a claim np about Toby'* creek that hts brother bad left him when he died the year before. He did not say much about himself to anyone. He took hie meal* with the widow Carney for a week or so, and bunked In with Fergus O’Hare. He said he wa* getting hts outfit. Nellie Oarney did eorne sewing for him, and they sat together evenings, while Kath­ leen slept beside them. One jof these evenings John Conover seemed to be very thoughtful. At lest he took n sudden resolution.

I’m only wondering If It’ll pay you. Jim always stuck to It that creek claim was bound to pan out. If It does, you and Kathleen will be fixed for life. If It don’t you might have a tough time.

They were married one day, and set out the next, taking the little child with them. It seemed a shame to John Conover that he had brought such a pretty crea­ ture to live In such a wtld-and lone­ some spot. Bhe was happy enough, ap­ parently the same Nelly that he had seen on the dump that spring dey. The more he loved her the more he brooded ever her sacrifice of a home and friends among civilised people.

Life In a hotel Is a great educator. Day after day Mrs. Conover went about, saw great play a read novels, visited her child, and enjoyed exist­ ence. Bhe received John’s Infrequent letters with a positive alarm. Suppose he should send for her to return. Bhe could close her eyes and see the great, dark, snow-topped mountain wall, the rough cabin close under the shadow, tbe brawling waters of the mountain torrent In dreams she beard the thrumming voice of tbe wind among tbe pine bonghs, the scream of tbe wild eagles—that was all. She missed John first with all the passion of her Im­ pulsive nature; but, as time went on, the longing grew less fierce, and she felt the would rather never return than to go now when life was so full of gaiety and novelty.
