PURPLE AND WHITE
DEATH IS EVER PRESENT,
KslEftnhef tha De&dlfeeci Potion Ever
XtOOvered by- Scleao.
New Tork Evening Post.
A-factory for the manufacture of some
cf the deadliest poisons known is located
not far from the lieart of New York
City, and sufficient poison Is being made
thoro now to annihilate the whole popu
lation of the greater city. It Is guarded
carefully from all intruders and no one
passes beyon,d Its portals without a spe
cial permit, and even employes have to
be skilled in their work and understand
the nature of the risk they take before
admittance is granted them. In this fac
tory Is manufactured pur anhydrous
acid, a drug that Is never placed on the
market in its pure state, and even in the
chemist's laboratory it is handled with
all the "bare ot a poisonous reptile. If
the fumes of this add should escape the
chemist would never live to tell the tale.
The man who discovered it was killed by
inhaling Its fumes, and many another
has met a elmllar death. From 3 to 5
per cent of this acid diluted with 97
parts of water forms prufltlo acid. Even
this poison is so deadly that inhaling
its fumes would mean instant death, and
It is never handled except In the factory
or a few large responsible laboratories.
Probably next in. importance to this add
Is the cyanide of potassium, which is
manufactured in the came factory, only
In another part of the building, where a
fireproof and airtight wall shuts It off
We don't single out anything for particular mention today. Everything is
special these before-season days. Let's talk about clothes in the abstract.
Do you wear ready-tailored or made-to-order? If the former, did you ever
investigate the superiority of "Moyer Clothing? If the latter, are you open to
conviction that we can compete successfully with your tailor in the goodness
and get-up of clothing, while beating him all to

from the first. The fumes of this are
not poisonous, and one can work In the
room where It la manufactured without
fear, except that he must not touch it.
The slightest quantity of the poison In Its
pure state would kill If swallowed. The
fumes of cyanide of potassium have a
rather pleasant odor, and It Is said at the
factory that It Jias a" -witching effect on
workmen. For all the world the finished
poison looks like prystalllzed sugar .and
as you gaze on it and smell the fasci
nating odor there Is a strong temptation
to taste it. This fascination is probably
much like that which draws a man over
a steep precipice. At any rate the attrac
tion to taste of the poison Is so well rec
ognized that a workman is never allowed
in the room alone. In the mlxlng-room,
where the men toll before a huge caldron
of molten cyanide, the scene is like that
of some old witch's cave, espedally if one
knows the nature of the terrible poison
that the men aro brewing.
3Ir. Choate'a Rap at air. DepeTr.
The Postmaster-General, Mr. Charles
Emory Smith-, has Just had his portrait
painted by "William Chase. It Is a Gov
ernment order, and the painting has been
shipped to Paris to hang In the post
office exhibit at the exposition. It will
be returned to the Buffalo exposition and
then hang with the other "obituaries"
as the Cabinet calls them In a room at
the Poetofflco Department in Washing
ton. Mr. Smith has a serious face and Mr.
Chase wanted him to smile. He told the

Postmaster-General that he was the best
model among all the public men he had
painted, because of his absolute repose,
but that he lost himself In thought.
This was an objection, and. in order to
meet it, the artist, who Is a diplomatist,
resorted to a clever stratagem.
He told Mr. Smith this story to make
him 'smile. It was a rap at Senator
Chauncey M. Iopew by Mr. Joseph H.
Choate, when the artist was dining with
Choate said that Iepew,a name was
now a synonym for "talkativeness," to
prove which he recited a verse he had
made up on the spot:
There was once a man in St. Ixrata,
In love with a sweet little Jewess;
She talked night and day;
In go charming: a way.
That he called her his Chauncey Depewess.

In large Iron cages containing matches
of various kinds and cotton waste. The
