Evory tiny ono reads In tho dally
papers of murdor trials whoro doath
was brought nbout by tho ndmlnln
trntlon of poison. 1'ublto sympathy
for tho murdorod condomns In no
uncortaln terms tho man or woman
who administers tho poison.
Evory spring, too, wo rend of dogs
nnd cats being poisoned by somo
malicious porson who tins boon an
noyed, nnd a great deal of Justifiable
consuro Is dlroctod toward tho per
petrator of tho poisonings. If ho or
sho could bo found undoubtedly
nurnmnry punishment would bo met
ed out to them.
Hut right horo In Ontario, tho Ar-i
liun in iiiiurmuu, iiiiih is uuing om
from cows that havo tuberculosis.
That milk Is poisonous, nt least It
kills. Unfortunatoly it does not
kill quickly,' but slowly, boforo tho
oyos of rolatlvos nnd frlonds tho
victims of this dread dlscaso loso
their health. Flushed chooks and
glassy oyos replnco tho blush nnd
Iflrnm of youth nnd strength. Tho
victim soon bocomos a chargo upon
his family or tho stato, tho hackling
cough, promonltory of doath and tho
gradual dissolution of tho lungs,
tolls tho talo, and llkowlso spreads
farther tho dread norms of this
plaguo of tho whlto man.
And yot tho men who nro ongagod
in tho business of selling milk, at
loast somo of them, think so llttlo
of tho welfnro of tholr customers
that thoy rofuso to tnko tho ordinary
precaution to dotormlno whothor or
not thoy nro soiling puro milk, or
nro soiling doath dealing germ carry
ing fluid, Hint moroly Is called milk
it ought to bo cnllod poison. And
tho public which buys this milk
thinks so llttlo of itsolf that It buys
without Investigating, without ask
ing ovon, It It comes from tcstod
Tho Argus nskod somo time ago
it Ontario wns ontltlod to tho pro
tection of IU milk supply. Tho ques
tion has not boon nnsworod. Wo
nro told that ono hord from which
milk la sold In tho city has not boon
tostod in thruo years, and that throo
yoara ago thoro woro cows In tho
hord which woro tuborculor. Think
of itt If this dairyman knows any
thing about cows ho should know
that ho Is endangering his bwn
health, that of his family nnd all
who uso milk from his dairy. Com
mon aonso should Impoll him to act
for his own eako.
During tho past two wooka aov
ornl ot tho dairymen havo had tholr
cows tcstod and others aro going to
do bo, wo aro told Hut this la not
enough. Every porson who owna
but ono cow, It hta family Is using
tho milk sho gives, should havo that
'Evory restaurant which furlnshes
milk to its patrons should bo com
pelled to carry a cortlflcato on Ha
walls that Its milk Is tosted nnd freo
from tuberculosis, and tho milk
mnn who sells In tho city should bo
compollcd to reglstor with tho city
rocordor at loast onco ovory month
a cortlflcato that his hord had been
Inspected. A small llconso too
sLould bo chargod to pay tho cost of
this recording nnd tho regulations
should bo onforccd.
Wo can sco no Justlco in hanging
men nnd womon for administering
pofson bo long as wo pormlt dairy
men to Bcattor tuborcular milk, and
it is tlmo that tho milk man who
docs this Is properly brnndod that
tho public may know him nnd avoid
"WOOIj" NOT AJ.Ij WOOIi
Tho proponents of tho "Truth In
Fabrics" bill rocolved n potent pre
cedent this wcok whun tho Supremo
Court nt Washington hnnded down
tho decision In tho caso of tho fed
eral trado commission against the
Wlnstcd lloslory company ot Con
necticut, In which tho principal con
troversy was over tho uso of trado
names, which Justlco Drandols do
clarcd "aro literally false"
Tho Connecticut company has
long boon manufacturing under
wear for trado using such names ns
"natural wool', "natural worsted,"
and "Australian wool," nnd Justlco
Drandols dcclarod, "nono of this
undorwonr Is nil wool," nnd "much
ot It contnlns only a small porcont
ago of wool; soinn ns llttlo ns ton
All thoso lnbols nro calculated to
dccolvo tho buying public said Jus
tlco Hrandols nnd such a prncttco
tondn to "aid and oncourago tho rep
resentations ot unscrupulous retail
ors nnd tholr salesmen who know
ingly null to tholr customers as all
wool, undorwonr which Is largoly
composed ot cotton.
"When mlsbrandod goods attract
customers by means of fraud which.
thoy porpotrato, trado la dlvortod
from tho producor ot truthfully
marked goods," tho Justlco said,
and "tho fact that honest manufac
turers might protect tholr trado by
la no dofonso fo such practlcos."
Just think what tho effect will
bo on tho demand for wool from this
section when tho principle thus on
nunclntod by tho supromo court ro
colvoo nccoptanco by tho passago ot
tho truth in fabrics bill which is
dlscussod In anothor column of this

Without tho Postnl Service, business
would languish in n da, nnd bo nt n

would dlo ot dry rot. Sectional hatred
or prejudice only would flourish, nnd
It Is the biggest distinctive business
In tho world nnd It comes nearer to tho
Innermost Interests of a greater num
ber of men nnd women than nny other
Institution on earth. No prlvato busi
ness, however widespread, touches so
ninny lives so often or sharply; no
church reaches Into so mnny soul,
flutters so mnny pulses, lias so many
humnn beings dependent on lta min

Your help Is vital. Address your let

and always look at your letter before
dropping In the mall to see If It le

use of the malls Is for your benefit and
speeds up the dispatch and delivery

If you have any complaints of poor
