The members of the Associated
Churitles and a large number of women
prominent In pity charitable work were
uddr.'sscd yeswday afternoon In the
Albright library ball by Edmund I..
Sturr. of Toronto, fan. Mr. Starr is
the general apront of the Children's Aid
society of that city and during hist re
marks rehearsed the work of the or
ganization, explained its police power
under act of parliament and enlight
ened the nudience particularly on
Child Savins," which wus the topic
of his address.
ilr. Starr la In the city as a lecturer
for the Epworth league convention,
which for two days has been In session
on the West Side, lie has made a
noble record In child saving work and
In his address pluced the purpose and
methods of the Children"! Aid society
of Canada In a new anil interesting
light, lie said:
"Following. t"he effort to establish our
society In Ontario, parliament appoint
eil a Prison Reform cominlssloti to In
iiulre Into the proper care of criminals
and investigate the best methods of pre
venting crime. This commission made
exhaustive research and their report
was "received and Hied.' This reference
simply illustrates the beginning of our
work and the death which often follows
red tape charity. Sentlmentallsm
charity is false. charily; it does a little
icood unda great deal of evil; It brings
about no permanent good.
Prevents Older Critnlnnlity.
"The whole -matter of child savins
rests upon the proved condition that
children properly reared and nurtured
prevent criminality anions older per
sons. It follows then that the state
should be a mother to the child In law
fact and truth. The child Is the sub
Jeet of the state. In fact; It Is the sub
ject of the state before birth, yet It is
the common practice of the authorities
to neglect the young until it has il
veloped viclousness or crime. The so
ciety I represent Is really the parent
the child In truth under the laws of the
"The act of parlhunetit under which
the society operates gives us the right
to assume control of the young when
ever its surroundings or life warrant
the action; police power Is given us.
These principles should not make it ap
pear that ours Is a prosecuting society.
It Is In all Its intents und methods
society to care for neglected children
Under 14 years of age. The act clearly
describes a neglected child as one who
begs, steals, sleeps in the open air. wan
ilers, has no abode, hus evil associates
or vicious parents, is idle or dissolute
or keeps bad company; It also specific
that a child Is deserted whose parent
Is Imprisoned for crime."
Hoes Not Lneouruge l.vil.
The various classes of neglected
children and cases for illustration wera
described by Mr. Starr, who dwelt par
ticularly upon the society's endeavor to
teach parents that they mist take
proper cure of the child. He called at
tention to the fact that lnstend of being
confined ia " institutions- children are
sent to well ordered households and In
many cases Christian homes. It tends
to decrease the number of Inmates of
charitable homes and does not put
premium on the sin of the parents, be

cnuruged to provide a proper home for
their children, who are returned when
Wherever the society la organized In

or temporary homo Is provided until
cases ure investigated or a home Is
found for the child. Wherever the so
ciety sees fit to establish a branch the
law gives it the right to do so irrespec
tlve of the wishes of town or city
councils, who are obliged to furnish the
"shelter." Ituther than being expeu
jlve. the system Is cheap and relieves
public institutions of Inmates.
Mr. Starr concluded by adapting the
old saw, "Take euro of the pence uu
the pounds will take core of them

and the nation will take care of itself.

In the discussion which followed and
la which Colonel 11. M. Boles, Rev.

participated, It appeared that Pennsyl

The National Child Saving society
was referred to by Colonel Holes as a
organization whose purpose is to find
homes for the children of other so
cieties, und which could be secured as
an agent If a Children's Aid society ex
isted In Scranton. It itlso was stated
that Instead of the expense of building
a "shelter" the Catholic und Protestant
insttutloiiK of the city could probably
he used for such a temporary purpose,
nnd the number of their regular in

A new trial wn granted yesterday by

From the amount of the verdict it Is
evident that the jury must havo en-
Irely misapprehended the Instructions

The question of whether the passage of
the ordinance of Jan. 28, ISM, by the
Ity councils did not ratify the act of
the defendant company In making the

As the new trial Is granted upon the

AN INTERESTING EXPERIMENT
Your reporter, among others, wus re
ently requested to witness an expert-.
ment at the New" York laboratory of I
the Pre-Dlgested Food compaiiy. it
seems that tho digestive properties of I
'askolu, their new food, hav.e been !
questioned in some ijuarUds, and it was
ImtnirtiiuL thut. the matter should lie
definitely settled once for all. It Whs to
see an actual test that we had received
the Invitation. After a cordial greet- :
Ing, the chemist In charge said: "Alake '
ourselves comfortable, gentlemen, and
e will at once proceed to business."
At this Juncture one of tho laboratory !
assistants appeared with ft -upplyj.f ,
beef, hard-boiled eggs, fish, poultry and ,
game, which he had mliioed Very finely
In order to imitate the effects of natural
mastication. A quantity of Interesting ,
apparatus was then brought forth, and i
the mixed food having been divided Into
equal portions, was placed In two shut-
lar jars. To each of them was added
acidulated water, but to one was mude
further addition of a dose of Paskola
from a bottle which your reporter had
been instructed to purchase In the open
Both Jars were 'now warmed to the
temperature of the body, and thus kept
for two hours. At the end of this time
the Jars Were removed from the dainty
little oven in which they, hud stood,
when lo! and behold, we found thnt
whereas the content of one of them
had undergone no change whatever, the
food in the other, t which had been
added the Paskola, had lternllly dis
solved like so much sugar, and a clear,
limpid solution was the result. This,
to our uninitiated eyes, wus most inu'r-
elous, and almost savored of magU',
for we hud often seen beef boiled in
water without otherw ise changing, than
to part with Us color. Yet here, nt the
gentle temperature of the body, It hud
been rendered completely soluble. The
chemist, while not surprised, was no
less pleased than ourselves, lie ob
served: "Gentlemen, If you would know
whether or not Paskola posseses de
cided digestive properties, look to those
Jars for an answer." The evidence was
oncluslve, for the object lesson before
us was so simple that we cutild not fail
10 comprehend the matter. He told 11S
thut the base of paskola was arti
ficially-digested starch and that for
this reason It was a flesh -producing
food vastly superior to cod-liver nil or
any of the nauseous drugs heretofore
used for this purpose. He stated,
furthermore, that us we had seen, li
possessed ' the . property of digesting
other foods in. the stomach, and thus
was an active aid to 'digestion, il whs
permitted to sketch the Jars after the
experiment hud .been completed, as re
produced ubove. The sediment shown
by the shading In jui' No. 1 represents
the undigested food as when pluced In
It. We Were told that thousands of
sufferers had used Paskola Willi. greut
benefit, and were shovVn n kirfee number
uf letters In this connection, 1 quote
from a few of them as follows: .
Airs. W. T. Andrews, of Gold Hill,
Ala., says that she hat been treated for
years for Indigestion by the most emi
nent physicians with only temporary
benefit. She began taking Paskola four
weeks ago, has already galnerft-ight i.h)
pounds, and now eats steak,' chicken,
and In fact everything her appetite

N. Y., whose letter was dated June 26.
says that she, too; suffered from
chronic dyspepsia for years. At times
even a drink of water distressed her.
She has been greatly benefited bv the
use of Paskola, and says that she Is
now convinced by her general condition
that sha derives nourishment from food
which she formerly did nor.
These statements but confirm the test
which we had wtnessed.
