of the catamount and how a

Do you know your feathers?
Many persons do not, and that is
why the bureau of bedding and up-
holstery, Pennsylvania Department
of Labor and Industry, is kept busy
answering questions and making
tests, all tending to bring the stand-
ards of manufactured bedding up to
lagal requirements.
The manager of a prominent New
York city hotel recently sent to
M. P. Frederick, director of the
State bureau of bedding and up-
holstery, a bed pillow which had
been purchased as high quality
down, asking for an analysis of the
contents. The analysis showed 35
per cent. goose feathers (new)
white but stained yellow; 25 per
cent. duck feathers (new); 25 per
cent. chicken feathers (new); 15 per
cent. second-hand feathers (goose and
duck); faint trace of down included
in the 35 per cent. of goose feath-
The Bureau, in reply, also com-
mented on the quality of the con-
tents of the pillow as follows:
“These pillows have an objection-
able odor. Many of the feathers
are unclean; that is, the yellowish
stain indicates impurites of the
fowl which were not removed in
the cleaning process. There also
was present a large quanity of dust
or ridt, chiefly the ground quill-
pith, which tends to show that the
mixture was not properly ‘dirt-
screened’ at the factory. The size
of this pillow is approximately 21x27
inches, which is standard size, yet
its weight is three pounds six
ounces. It would require only one
and one half pounds of pure down
to fill a pillow of this size.”

prestige of Norman-French.
The man who sent the pelt to
the Game Commision and the man
who turned it over .to him were
both fined $100, The chap who

A resolution adopted at the bien-
nial convention of the American As-
sociation of Workers for the Blind
asking the Governors and prison
managers of the seven States to do
what they can to discontinue the
manufacture of brooms and mops
in the State prisons, caused Mrs.
E. S. H. McCauley, state scretaryof
welfare, to point out that brooms
and mops have not been manufac-
tured in Pennsylvania prisons since
Pennsylvania officials reco,
that there are so few industries
which the blind can undertake suc-
cessfully took the first steps in
March, 1926, to discontinue the
manufacture of these articles by
prison labor and within a few
months that industry was closed
out at the prisons.
— Of course, thousands of per-
sons attain middle age without
developing serious illnesses or com-
plications that will shorten life later
on if unattended. But that is no
reason for any mature person to
conclude that the absence of pain
or positive sickness is an assurance
that their present physical condition
is one hundred percent and will
thus continue indefinitely.
“The keys to long and happy
life, barring violence and accident,
are the conscientious observance
from day to dayof the fundamental
rules of health, and an annual
checkup for the discovery of condi-
tions which are observable only by
the practised eye of the physician.
“It therefore follows that while
parents are interesting themselves
in diet, fresh air, sleep and exer-
cise for their children’s interest they
should also look out for themselves.
“Healthy children are the nation’s
asset, but healthy grown-ups rep-
resent the country’s present work-
ing capital. To slight the well be-
ing of either class is consequently
very foolish, Long and happy life
insist upon daily attention and the
annual checkup for both young and
old. See that it gets it.”
