SPUR TO CHEMISTS
A hncouraaed hv Manner in
H1 -Which NewsDarjers Have
. Backed. Expert, Pufe Food
Men Plan New Laws.
(Wellington Bureau of The JtarnaL)
.Washington, Sept. 1. The almost
unanimous support of Dr. Wiley's en
forcement of the pure food law by the
newspapers of the United States has en
couraged chemists and physicians of
national prominence to hope for the
success of efforts which will be made
at the next session of congress toward
the amendment of the law so as to In
clude within the term "mlsbranded" all
false claims. In circulars or otherwise
accompanying drugs and foods, relative
to the curative) and therapeutic effects
of such aVttclea.
Boon after the supreme court rendered
its decision in the case of United States
vs. O. A. Johnson Remedy company, let
ting out the advertisers of "sure cures,"
f resident Tart sent to congress a mes.
sage in which he argued strongly for
me adoption or an amendment to over
come the uncertainty In the law. which
made possible the Johnson decision. The
department of agriculture had alleged
In Its suit agafnst Johnson that that
company had offered for sale as a cure
for cancer a series of preparations hav
ing no curative value.
Jtloiardson Voice Warning-.
Congressman William Richardson, of
the house of representatives committee
on Interstate and foreign' commerce, a
tauncn mend of the pure food law,
has voiced a warning against wolves
In sheep's clothing, who, when the ques
tion of amending the, law. to overcome
the decision of the supreme court in
favor of the Johnson Remedy company,
comes up, -will offer numerous radical
amendments to befog the Issue and de
feat the amendment whose adoption
would mean the downfall of fake "certain-cure"
and "cure-all" preparations.
"Amendments offered in bad taith. or
advocated by members who, in ' good
faith to the people, are unconsciously
the tools of concerns making absurd
proposals In bad faith." said Judge
Richardson, "will be our most formid
able obstacle, and well nigh unsurmount
able; thus our best plan promising suc
cess at this time is concentration upon
a. single amendment hlch will result
In the exclusion from Interstate com
merce of all quack 'cures' and pro
prietary preparations or devices adver
tised by statements of their curative or
remedial power, not founded upon fact,
or accompanied by circulars or other de
vices intended to convey such 'falsfc Im
pressions. It will be more difficult than
many persons think to amend the law
at all. The consideration of many
amendments for the accomplishment of
divers purposes would defeat utterly
the purpose championed by the presi
dent in his message to congress."
Suggestions to Come.
In acknowledgement of this situation,
officials of the bureau of chemistry,
who In the five years since its enact
ment have discovered many defects In
the pure food law, have determined to
offer few or no other suggestions for
its improvement at this ttaw
Action against quack nostrums, if
taken by the congress, will not be an
innovation on the part of the United
States. The shame of the situation is
that the United States bureau of chem
istry furnished much of the information
which led to the enactment of an antl
quaekery ''law In Australia, and more
than four years later the United States
congress is barely on tho 'verge of
awakening to the necessity for prevent
ing the poisoning of the people. The
Australian government, from Informa
tion obtained by permission of Presi
dent Roosevelt from the United States
agricultural department, published ex
haustive reports upon the evil results
from some medical advertising, among
'other things alleging that this quackery
was to a large extent the cause of in
creased Infant mortality.
For four years the following state
ment has stood in an offioial publica
tion of. the Royal Australian commission
on secret drugs, cures and foods, while
the people of the United States, consum
ing poison the while, have awaited, first
the decision of the supreme court, and
now action by the congress to overcome
"America is the land above all nthnra
where everything which appeals to
credulity and ignorance flourishes. It
Is there that the medical quackeries,
the patent foods,' the beautlflers, and
Law la Australia.
But the Australian government, act
ing early upon the report of that com
mission, passed a law to bring about
"the use of strictly measured terms"
on the labels attached to bottles and
packages, and in the advertising litera
ture accompanying patent medicines and
hygienic articles of all descriptions,
which 'prohibition, according to the
American consul In Melbourne, has been
an effective check upbn misleading
claims for "certain-cure" and "cure-all"
preparations. ' The Ignited States consul
now reports that the department of
trade and customs of Melbourne, en
couraged by the success of that effort
against quackery, is turning its atten
tion in another direction for public wel
fare. The department alleges that many
people buy methylated spirits from
druggists on Bundays, and from grocers
at other times, to drink in place of in
toxicating liquors. In consequence, the
department Is issuing a new regulation
that methylated spirits henceforth must
contain 0.6 per cent of coal-tar naphtha,
tho federal analyst having reported that
this addition will not affect the value
of the Spirits for industrial or domestlo
purposes, but will make the taste ob
jectionable. The naphtha will be' added
to the spirits before it Is released from
Not long ago a head official was

dent will hot try to carry legislation
ostensibly directed against drug-packers,
because the money interest and the
newspaper influence over congress will
be too strong for him. Ho will have

DIVORCE FOR WIFE
Mrs. Herbert T. Whalen Ob

(Spatial to The Journal. 1 -Chicago,
111., Sept 2. The last kink
in , the relations of Herbert T., Whalen,
Mrs. Mary A. Whalen. Carol von Kim

straightened out in the superior court.
Judge Charles A. McDonald granted
Mrs. Whalen a divorce. Mrs. Kimball
secured her divorce two weeks .ago
from Judge Brentano. Mr. Kimball was
a witness for Mrs. Whalen.
The trouble began when the Klmballs
and the Whalens , adjourned from a
down town cafe . one Thanksgiving
night, that of 1908, to the elevated rail
way station at State and Van Buren
streets, according to Mrs. Whalen's tes
timony. She declared that Mr. Whalen
on that occasion insisted on playing
the part of the young provincial in
Paris of Alphonse Daudet's novel, "Sa
pho," carrying Mrs. Kimball 'up the
steps of the elevated station.

Mr. Whalen reached the elevated plat
form In safety. Then he wanted to kiss
Mrs. Kimball good-by, Mrs. Whalen tes
tified. She told him that he had al
ready kissed Mrs. Kimball sufficiently.
Then Mr. Whalen struck Mrs. Whalen
in the face.
Mr. Kimball corroborated Mrs. Wha
len's testimony in the matter of the
blow-, but he was not examined by
counsel as to the other and preceding
Incidents which she detailed.
Mrs. Whalen admitted that she and
Mrs. Kimball were excellent friends.

Mrs. Kimball Won Divorce.
In answer to a question of Judge
McDonald's, Mrs. Whalen stated that
Mrs. Ktrnball was a divorcee. Mrs.
Kimball obtained her divorce on Au
gust 4 before Judge Brentano. Her
husband did " not contest the suit and
she wa given tie custody of their two
children. She alleged repeated cruelty
and testified that three days after she

which affords both of them opportunity
for their delightful talents. Mr. Stev

STORK TAKES MONKEY'S
SUPPER AT THE OAKS
Tito, the baby monkey born at The
Oaks last month, got no- supper last
night. Furthermore, the simian's want
was acute; almost as acute as the sat
isfaction of Fredereich, the staid stork
which is kept in the adjoining cage,
because Frlederelch got Tito's supper.
'The tragedy happened In this wise.
Billy Horsman who has charge of the
animals In The Oaks soo, was walkina
down to the monkey cage with some
wheat mush for the young simian when
a little girl carrying a diminutive sister
"Please, mister," said the airl. "did
that stork bring that little monkey to
the mother monkey In the cage there?"
Billy Horsman Is a kindly man, and
the query moved him to speech. Set
ting down the pail" of wheat mush in
front of the stork's cage he proceeded
to tejl the youngsters an artistic story
that rivalled - Kipling's jungle taps.
The tale delighted the children, pleased
Billy, and gave Freiderelch an oppor
tunity to steal the monkey's meal.
TOO MODEST TO LIVE;
FIREMAN CHASES HER '
TO SAVE HER LIFE
Ne,w York, Sept. 2. Her mod

lle Cohen her life. When the
house at 101 Belmont street,
' ' Brooklyn, caught fire, Miss Co-
hen, attired in a nightgown, ap-
peered at her window, franti
cally calling 1or help.
Captain Mopjiey of a hook and
ladder company climbed to the
window. As he entered the room
the girl fled and he had to chase
her Into the burning house. He
caught her barely in time.
HUNGARIAN PAIR SAVE
MONEY ON $10 WEEK
Elgin, 111., Sept 2. While the cost
of living is high and still increasing, do
not despair, as you still have chances.
If your average wage is not less than
1 10.60 a week, you are on the straight
road to independence, and can amass a
fortune If you are economic.
Seven years ago Mr. and Mrs. Mike
Busch arrived In Elgtn penniless from
their native land In Hungary. They
have now left Elgin for Hungary with
a "fortune" of more than $3000. The
"fortune" was saved out of their wages,
which averaged $10.50 a week, and in
come from three boarders. They were
able to save the money by living on 60
cents a day.
Both are well clothed and happy.
They say they never went hungry.
Their $3000 will provide them a hand
some living, they say, for the rest of
thr days in Hungary.

Washington, Sept. 2. Despite the n':
cent passage of a law making spying
on th United States military reserva
tions a criminal offense with heavy
punishment In time of peace, it is
still easy for foreign governments to
obtain Information about the defenses
of the United States, In the 'opinion of
officers of the general staff of the army
at the war department.
Though visitors are not permitted to
take cameras into fortified places main
tained by the United States, the of- j
fleers declare it Is an easy matter for i
any man, familiar with coast defenses, I
to visit a fort and without taking a 1
written note, to gather enough material
In half an hour to enable him to chart
completely the position of the guns,
their number, slse, range and effective
ness. There Is no way of making this
impossible without sealing up all the i
forts which is of course obviously lm- j
Despite this, however, there have been j
many instances of deliberate attempts !
at snvtnar which seem to Instlfv the
passage of the recent law. One ex
ample occurred In New York, where a
man arrested for a minor ofefnse was
found to have a trunk filled with mili
tary maps and Information which con
vinced army officers he was In the pay
of a foreign government.
Less than a year ago, an enlisted
man In the Philippines, who was used
as the official photographer for the
aimy in the islands, was offered $25,
000 for a set of photographs of the
defenses of Corregidor Island. The de
fenses at this place are the most mod
ern and the most elaborate of any ever
constructed by this country, and es
pecial precautions have been taken to
keep the details secret. The enlisted
man pretended to accept the offer.
and thus led the would he purchasers
or American military secrets into a
trap. They were caught, but by habeas
corpus proceedings, as the incident oc
curred before the new law was enacted,
were able to escape.
A waiter in Seattle, not long ago. was
xouna to De a roreign officer in dis
guise, whllo an American ambassador
in a foreign country notified the state
department a few months ago that a
certain captain of a foreign army had
ben detailed to spend three years In
the United States, making secret studies
of our defenses.
The most startling Instanoe was when
an Englishman ploked up a small pack
age on the streets of Calcutta, and
discovered that It contained blueprints
showing every detail of the fortifica
tions at Corregidor. No clue was ever
found to the identity of the man who
had lost them, and the war department
Is still in complete Ignorance as to how
the prints were obtained.
