Oram ant Treaty With Franeo,
New York, May 21. A decision
Just rendered by Judge Townsend, who
is bearing in the United States circuit
court the appeals from the decision of
the board of general appraisers, under
the customs administration act, lessens
the duties on French brandies and
liquors 60 cents a gallon, and In the
particular suit which was brought by
George 8. Nicholas, an importer, takes
$45,000 out of the treasury of the gov
ernment. Nicholas, on Juno 10, 1808, received
from Franco 80,000 gallons of the cor
dial known as 'Chartreuse." Col-
ector Bidwell assessed the duty on
this importation at $3.25 per gallon.
The imoorter appealed to the board of
general appraisers, and they affirmed
the collector's action. Then the mat
ter waa brought into the circuit court
and, when the bearing came up, coun
sel for Nicholas insisted that under the
new treaty with France, made in
1898. a vear later (ban tje passage of
tho tariff under which the appraise
ment had been made, tho duty abould
have been only $1.75 per gallon
Copies of the treaties made between
Franco and tho United States were pro
duced as evidence, and in the French
copy the word "liquers" appears,
while from the American copy the
word "liquors" is missing. This deci
slon is in favor of the importers, and if
it holds, means a loss of many million
dollars to the government annually.

group east of Luzon, la circulating in

pointed by President McKinley wsi
appointed without the authority of con
gress, and hence it cannot treat official
ly. It urges the Filipinos not to sur
render their arms at the lastigation of
tho commission and on promises which
congress may not ratify, and also nrges
the Filipinos to entbusastically wel-
oome the commission when it arrives in
tho towns and provinces, asking boldly
for the form of government they most
desire, as the Americans permit of free
dom of speech. The proclamation
closes with asking too Filipinos to
strive for liberty and independence and
again warns them against deception.

How Can the Danger from Ala
lam Bak-
Ing Powder. Be Avoided?
The reported cases of poisoning from
the use of alum baking powder have
awakened the public to the serious
danger which menaces the health of
the people of this country In the num
erous alum powders which are urged
upon consumers.
Among the leading physicians and
scientists there is no question as to tho
detrimental effects which alum baking
powders produce upon the system. In
many foreign countries aud in many
cities of this country, the authorities
ave absolutely prohibited their sale or
the sale of bread containing alum.
Even small doses of alum given to
children, have produced fatal results.
while cases of heartburn, indigestion,
griping constipation, dyspepsia and
various kindred gastric troubles from
irritation of the mucous membrane, at
tributed to the continuous use of food
prepared with the alum or alum phos
phate powders, are familiar in the prac
tice of physicians generally.
Congress has recently been investi
gating the subject of food, and in its
official report to the senate the com
mittee aays "So far as the use of
alum in the manufacture of a food
product, such as baking powder, is con
cerned, the committee, in view of the
overwhelming mass of evidence antag
onistic to its use, recommends that its
use in food products and baking pow
ders be prohibited by law."
It is not possible that any prudent
housewife, any loving mother, will
knowingly use sn article of food that
will injure the health of her household,
or perhaps cause the death of her chil
dren. How shall the dangerous alum pow
ders be distinguished? And how shall
the danger to health from their use be
Generally alum powders may be
knon from the price at which they are
sold, or from the fact that they are ac
companied by a gift, or are disposed ol
under some scheme. The alum powder
costs but a few cents a pound to make,
and is often sold at 20 or 35 cents a
pound; sometimes aa low as 10 cents.
It is Impossible to name all the alum
powders in the market, but any baking
powder sold at a low price, or adver
tised as costing much less than the
well known, high class powders, or
accompaniod by a present, or disposed
of under any scheme, is of this class.
detrimental to health and to be avoided.
These facts should incline consumers
to turn a deaf ear to all Importunities
to buy the inferior powders. Tho wise
housekeeper will decline in ail cases to
take them.

"No," replied the girl, as she opened

"I was curious to see if water tarnished
gold, or had any effect on the watch's
delicate mechanism."
"Water? What do you mean?"
"Well, Mr. Hunker told me you
were in the habit of soaking your
watch. What is the object of such
treatment, Mr. Dolly?" Harlem Life.
