Condemns "Soft" Drinks. Dairy and Food Commissioner James Foust has issued a bulletin in which he outlines what has been done in the way of enforcing the act prohibiting the sale of adulter ated or misbranded "soft" drinks. Mr.' Foust declares that 80 per cent, of 800 samples taken by his agents were found to be contrary to the law. "Many of these preparations were nothing but tap water of uncertain purity, sweetened with sacchariu, flavored with an essence, often arti ficially colored with a coal tar dye and actually made foamy with a tincture of soap bark," he writes in denunciation of what is being sold in the State. . "We were also confronted with the use of misleading names and pictures of fruits upou preparations which were wholly artificial, and the use of cayenne pepper to add puugeucy to so called ginger ale."

Wilson, German Singing Co median, nt the Columbia. . Tl:c scenic equipment of "Met. in Ireland, the new musical play, which Al. II. Wilson, the German dialect romedian, will bring to the Columbia Theatre, Thursday Jan nary, 27th. is said to be most attractive. The first r.ct is a reproduction of Dolan's Forge, an historic Irish landmark on the road leading to Kildare; the second act is an interior scene of the famous Klinikilty Castle; while the third act is a moonlight scene, an exter ior view of Klinikilty Castle with its surrounding park and lodge houses. Mr. Wilson will no doubt receive a hearty welcome, more especially since he will make his appearance in a new play, which has proven to be one of the suc cesses of the season. The story tells of the adventures and love of a German wanderer in the land of the shamrock, where he becomes a believer in the good little fairies made famous in song and story The comedy element, of which there is a generous supply, is fur nished by Mr. Wilson as the Ger man wanderer, when he mingles with the lads and lasses of the Emerald Isle. There are several new songs with such charming titles as "Love Thoughts," "Erin's Isle," "The Banshee," "The Nightingale Song" and "Mixed German." A competent chorus will render the old-time Irish airs COULDN'T BEAT IT. A number of men were gathered at a point where men are wont to congregate the other day, when one proposed thev test their skill in telling the most unlikely and unbelievable yarn. They drew lots as to which one should begin, and the first one said that he was at a moving picture show a few nights ago, when a lady with an immense hat cams in and sat down in front of him. As soon ns the show start ed she promptly removed her head gear. This ended the contest, as all the others at once agreed that they couldn't tell anything that was more improbable Daniel Boone on the Trail. If wild animal training is not an actual "calling" it has many of the elements of irresistibility often at tributed to vocations of education al, didactical or philanthropic na ture. Last year when J. W. Clin ton, now playing the part of Daniel Boone, was terribly mangled in an attack by the wolf "Bob" carried by the company, he said he would probably return to the company as soon as he" was able. Though warned by the doctors at the hos pital, Mr. Clinton insisted on re turning to his company less than ten days after he had been torn by the "raw" wolf "Bob." Ou last Monday night he fainted after hav ing successfully performed with his pack of wolves. Again entering the cage Wednesday Mr. Clinton made a desperate effort to "break" the wolf which tore him, but his weak condition, began to tell ou him before he had finished, and it was only the . quick work of the other members of the company prevented him from being torn the second time. These wolves will be seen with "Daniel Boone on the Trail" at Columbia Theatre, Friday eveuiug, January 14th. COST OF LIVING. Senator Elkins Says That the Situa tion Is Alarming Over High Prices of Living. SAYS CONGRESS SHOULD ACT. The increased cost of living is a subject that is at present receiving much attention. Senator Elkins of West Virginia has introduced a re olution in Congress in regard to the matter. In speaking of it he said: "I have introduced a resolution for an investigation into the ques tion of increased prices, because we have reached a situation that is alarming. It is affecting almost the entire American people. The cost of living is chasing wages and in comes, and it is going ahead of them in many cases." The question of why the cost of living is going upward and upward is attracting general attention in Congress, and the pressure from without on that body for an inves tigation is strong. Generally speak ing, the old-time leaders in Senate and House have little sympathy with an inquiry of this sort. .Sen ator Elkins is one of the wealthiest men in Congress and a force in the Senate. He employs thousands of men in his various lines of business in West Virginia, and a resolution from a source of this kind for a congres sional inquiry into the upward movement of prices naturally caus es a stir.- The Senator in receiving many inquiries about it and many letters of approval. IXyuiRY SKKMS CURTAIN. That a congressional inquiry of some sort will be forced in the end seems certain. The widespread dis content over the conditions makes it difficult for the leaders to stand in the way of it. "I don't see how this situation can continue," said Senator Elkins. "As I say the cost of living is out stripping wages and incomes. That brings want and misery to large numbers of families. It means that women and children are not getting proper food and clothing, and that children cannot be sent to school and get either an education or the foundation of an education. And that means our civilization is being injured. "Food, shelter and clothing are the three absolute essentials of ev ery family. Shelter includes rents and fuel. The cost of all these has advanced alarmingly. They are absolutely lundamental to comfort and health. It is not to be wonder ed at that the people are concerned about conditions. I hear from it constantly. Men complain to me that wages are not keeping pace, aud that their families are in straits in consequence. Yet so far as my own business is concerned, the re turns from it are not such as to warrant me in putting up wages. What is to be done in such a situa tion ? THE DUTY OF CONGRESS. "I look upon it as the function of statesmanship or whatever you may call it when it is clearly per ceived that a disaster is threatening the whole nation of 80,000,000 peo ple, to attempt to do what can be done to afford a remedy. As to the increased cost of living. Congress at least can find out some of the causes and make them known. What those causes are I am not prepared to say. For one thing, we are living in an age of extrava gauce. Speculation is rife. The expansion of the currency supply and the increased production of gold 110 doubt are f jctors. All th,ese tacts tend to make high prices. "The country is being settled np so fast, and the population is grow ing so rapidly especially the urban population that we are reaching a state where agricultuial production is tested by the demands ot our own people. Nations do not ex change gold; they exchange com modities. Our consumption of wheat is up to the limit of production, and we have practically ceased export ing. Of course, we send abroad cotton to the value of $900,000,000 or more. But we pay out $200,000, 000 a year to foreign ship owners. MONEY DRAIN TO EUROPE. "American tourists take $ioo,- 000,000 abroad every year. They spend much of it in luxury aud ex travagance. Laborers send bafc to the old country every year $100,- ooo.ooo. we send $50,000,000 out of the country every year for Christmas presents. Altogether we pay out in one way aud another, in actual money which goes abroad, about $500,000,000 every year. In ten years this means $5,000,000,000. "This dram is doubtless one of the causes of the increasing cost of living and the failure of wages to keen pace; and there are many contributory causes. We must own our own ships, and we must come to more economical ways of living. Think how we are wasting money DOCTORS TAILED. RESTORED BY PERUNA. Catarrh of the Lungs Threatened Her Life. Miss Nlnotto Porter, Itrafntroo, Ver mont, writes !"I have boon cured by Porn n a. "I had noverftl hemorrhages of the lung. Tho doctor did not help mo much and would never have cured me. "I aaw a, testimonial In a Peruna almanao of a case similar to mine, and I commenced lining It. 'I was not able to wait on myself when I began lining It. I gained very slowly at first, but I could see that It was helping mo. "Aftor I had taken it a while I com menced to ralno up a stringy, sticky substance from my lungs. This grew less and less in quantity as I continued tho treatment. "I grew moro fleshy than I had been for a long time, aud now I call myself well." Ask your Druggist for a Free l'e runa Almanac for 1910. in comparison with the French. You don't see the average French man going traveling aoout f r pleaVuie. The French people live on what we waste. Cons niplioii is overtaking production. My res olution provides for ;in inq i:ry into the question how far the tru-tsa d monopolies have caused the ; ee t conditions. 1 don't know to what extent they have done so. A M K RICANS K X T R A V A OA NT. "The American people are reck lessly extravagant. We must learn to get more out of our farms, and to cutitract fewer debts and find more ways of paying them. I have introduced this resolution because I feel that here is a situation that absolutely demands the attention of Congress. I want n thorough and impartial investigation that will go to the roots of the whole i.iatter. .1 don't see how things can go ou as they are, and I believe it is our im perative duty to look into the facts." Senator Elkins proposes to broad en the scope of his resolution in a few particulars. He will seek to have it apply to every important phase of the cost of living among oilier things, specifically to ths in crease of the world's 6old supply ind monetary supply. COMMISSIONERS ORGANIZE. At a meeting of the County Com missioners on Saturday morning, C. Fred Lenhart was elected presi dent of the board for the ensuing year, and C. L. Pohe, secretary. Mr. Lenhart is rapidly recovering from his attack of typhoid fever, but is not yet able to attend to bu siness. No other appointments were made, and will not be until Mr. Lenhart can be present. Keep The Money At Home.

We will duplicate the offer, save you express charges, will guaran tee as good if not better stock, and you can see just what you are get-, ting betore you pay for it.
