Harrisburg, June 30. —The commit
tee created by the pure food depart
ment to inquire into the charges made
against Pure Food Agent Simmers by
Major Wells, the late dairy and food
commissioner, that he had taken
money to suppress prosecutions and
had neglected his duties generally, met
at the office of Senator McCarrell yes
terday for thai purpose. The chief evi
dence was gnren by Harry Reed, a
spice man from Philadelphia, who tes
tified that he had given Simmers sls to
suppress live suits, but that Simmers
had subsequently persecuted him by
instigating suits against grocers to
whom he had sold Roods, and that his
firm had to pay the fine and costs for
selling adulterated foodstuffs, when the
goods were pure. Asked why he paid
the money, Reed said that he would
rather do so than suffer annoyance
of a court trial and its great cost.
Major Wells testified that Simmers
was neglecting his duty when he
reporting that he was at work. Super
intendent of Public Buildings and
Grounds T. Larry Eyre testified that
after Wells had made charges against
Simmers he withdrew the charges and
said he did not believe that Reed had
ever given Simmers sls. Simmers de
nied in toto everything that had been
said about him, saying that Reed had
tried to bribe him to settle cases, but.
he had scorned him.

"robust and rosy cheeked" by the use
of this marvelous medicine.

How to Find Out.
Fill a bottle or common ylass with
your wafer and let it stand twenty four
hours: a sediment or settling indicates an
unhealthy condition of the kidneys; if it
stains your linen it is evidence of kidney
trouble; too frequent desire to pass it or
pain in the kidneys and bladder are out
of order.
There is comfort in the knowledge so
often expressed,tliatDr. Kilmer's Swamp-
Hoot, the great kidney remedy fulfills
every wish in curing rheumatism, pain in
the back, kidneys, liver,bladder and every
part of the urinary passages. It corrects
inability to hold water and scalding pain
in passing it, or bad effects following use
of liquor, wine or beer, and overcomes
that unpleasant necessity of being com
pelled togo often during the day and to
get up many times during the night. The
mild ami the extraordinary effect of
Swamp-Root is soon realized. It stands
the highest forjts wonderful cures of the
most distressing cases. If you need a
medicine you should have the best. At
druggists fifty cents or one dollar.

The game of golf Las never been a
cheap means of exercise and diversion, j
but it will be more expensive this sea- j
son than it ever has been on account
of the advance in the price of golf
balls, of which great numbers are '
used. The regular ouyit, aside from '
clothing aud shoe?, consists of a driver, 112
brassie, cleek, lofter aud putter, which *
can be purchased in various qualities
at prices ranging from $1 to $3 apiece.
If one wants a complete outfit, it '
should contain also a masliie, midiron '
and driving mashie, and all these clubs '
must be carried in a bag. These have
been put 011 the market this season in 1
greater variety than at any previous 1
time. Tin re are plain canvas bags Tor
sl, Scotch plaid leather bound bags
at from $2 to $4 and leather, from the 1
plain article to embossed and highly j
decorated club holders, ranging in price ]
from $4 to S2O.
"We have lots of fun selling golf 1
hags," a dealer in sporting goods. <
"A man is never ashamed to carry
new clubs, but many customers ob- 1
ject to a brand new leather bag and ]
ask us to wet it down or stain it be- !
fore we send it to their homes. One
man actually kicked his purchase
about the store and then asked the boy
to give it a dose of street dirt before
he would carry it out."
But the man who said he could not
afford to play golf, but would keep a
yacht instead, probably had the dis
appearing golf ball in mind when he
spoke. These were sold at from $3 to
$3.75 a dozen last year, and in conse
quence of the advance in the price of
gutta percliii the price has gone up
about 50 per cent.
The scarcity of gutta percha is due
to the shrinkage in the production and
to the great demand for the article for
electric insulating. Remade balls may
still be had at $2.50 a dozen, but they
are less reliable and weigh only about
27 pennyweight, or one-half penny
weight less than the regulation balls
as made by well known manufactur
ers. But this difference in weight
would be no objection to some players.
Harry Vardon, who has many brilliant
American scores to his credit, prefers
a 27 pennyweight balL
"There are always manufacturers
somewhere," said a dealer in golf out
fits, "who will make an article at a
cut price if there is a big demand, but
that cannot be looked for*in the case
of golf balls because it is the material
that creates and regulates the price. A 1
poor article, from which Wie rosin has
not been properly extracted, will make
a poor and unsatisfactory ball, which
would be no good at any price. A ball
made from the proper material costs
money, and these will make golf come
higher this season."—New York Trib
