veteran on Decoration day, was with
the llfith New York infantry during the
war and did duty as bugler The horn
he carried Monday was a battle-scarred
veteran that did service through the
war. It sounded through the valley of
the Khenanduah when Gen. Kheiiilan
sent Jubal Early and his rebel boot fly

bad clung to so tenaciously. Mr. Law

TheG. A. R colors were accompanied
by Miss Breithaupt, a Clackamas county
girl who wrote an essay on the flag that

joining with tlie veteran in Ihe ob
servance of occasion of thia kind.

Congress at Last Takes Action.
' A bill has been introduced at Wash
ington requiring all baking powders con
taining alum .and ammonia to be to
labeled. This is a step in the right di
rection, and ha been long foreshadowed
by the action of state legislatures, board
of health, food commissioners, etc., in
this ftnatter. The bill affords needed
protection to the public, for the evi
dence as to the injurious effects of alum
gnd ammonia is very heavy j but it will
nevertheless be fought bitterly by the
manufacturers whom it effects who are
accustomed to sell their goods as "pure
Cream of Tartar," absolutely pure," etc.
The bill is something needed. If a
maker nses a drug in bis powder, the
name of which he uoes not want to have
printed on hia label, it is prima facie ev
idence that there is something wrong.
We hope the subject will be vigorously
prosecuted all over the country, not only
at regards baking powder, but Also all
other food adult urations. ' ' j 1
This bill may incidently benefit the
makers of pure articles, but if irseould,
this iB enly an additional point In its
favor. :' '' 1 '
