Amusing Complications from Using
Flesh in Sausages.
An amusing warfare has been car
ried on in Paris between the Govern-
ment chemists and the makers of sau.
sages in which horseflesh has been
Some time ago the Butchers’ Asso-
clation of Paris strongly advocated a

pate by a label or otherwise all sau-
sages composed of horseflesh or in
Yhlch borsefiesh had been mixed with
er meats. The authorities, while
perfectly willing to make regulations
enforcing this practice, declined to do
80 on account of the impossibility of
punishing offenders. To punish the
fiolators of a law it is necessary to
detect the violation and also to show
proof of it. In the present state of
péleniific knowledge it is not possible
to satisfactorily determine the differ-
ence between flesh of the horse and
that of any other animal when they are
both chopped fihe and mixed togéther.
A. chemist finally discovered that if
the Tr were treate with lodated
water a reddish-brown reaction would
be apparent if horseflesh were present.
i Pork or beef does give this peculiar
tinge. The pork butchers rejoiced and
prepared to push the wished-for legis-
The horsemeat men had a card up
thelr sleeves, however, and commenced
adding a little flour to their sausage
meat. When the lodated water was
applied contact with the starch of the
flour immediately produced a brilliant
blue, which effectually masked al}
traces of any other color. This blue, of
course, would point to the likelihood of
horsemeat being present, but it could
not be sworn to. Supposing the meat
to be pure beef and the flour added,
the blue would be the same when the
test was applied.
' The chemists again went to work
and discovered that if the starch was
separated by maceration and subse-
quent filtration, and the residue treat-
ed with two or three chemicals, the
horsemeat would be detected. So far
the victory rests with the chemists, and
the law will probably be passed unless
the horsemeat men make another dis-
covery. In 1802 20,000 horses were
slaughtered in Paris, three-fourths of
which went into sausages, so that the
importance of the industry may be real-

value of nearly $1,500,000 yearly in the

very great variety. Every sort of ma-

ECKON it was lined
out to be the big-
gest an’ most joy-
ous celebration
ever pulled off west
of Sent Looey,”
said Yom North.
He sat on the
shady side of the
Transit House. ‘It
was a case of force.
Red Bud, which
had started on its
bounding corpor-
ate career aimin’ to be known as the
metropolis of Cowley County, Kansas,
an’ figurin’ at some future day to
move the county seat over from Win-
field, was on the hog train. This was
in '89. The boom towns had just
struck the tobaggan, Jarvis, the real
estate sharp which had invented Red
Bud an’ laid out to sell the limitless
prairie at $10 a front foot, made a
final desp’rit effort to put sand on the
slight an’ stop the journey to financial
ruin, but it wa’'n’t no use. Red Bud
was done bust then ; they was no more
left to it than a toy balloon which has
set on a tack. Jarvis wouldn't admit
it; he dasn’t. He had too much into
the pot to go to the discard then.
Whereby he fixes up this Fourth of
July celebration, an’, my boy, the
programme was a bird. They was to
be racin’ on the flat in the mornin’, an’
8 whole lot of Injuns an’ half-breeds
from over near Arkansas City was in
it. Then Jarvis was goin’ to sell off
some of his landscape at auction, after
which I myse’f, havin’ agreed to act at
chaplain tor the occasion, was to read
the grand old Declaration of Inde-
pendence, which, read proper, catches
a Western crowd every time. This was
to be followed by Charley Siringo
from Caldwell a-singin’ of his justly
celebrated production, ‘The Ranger’s
Lament,” which it goes like this and is
calculated to fetch tears from a cgy-
use, an animal not much given over to
weepin’ a a rule:

‘The afternoon was to be
to wild Western sports,
an’ in the
evenin’ it was allowed to make the |
heavens blaze with various kinds of
glory, Jarvis havin’ sprung himself
on the fireworks an’ brought down a
car load.
‘‘The afternoon sports was to be the
feature. Jarvis had
arranged for a
whole lot of possible land buyers to
come over from Wichita, an’ had a
train load comin’ from as far as Kan-
sas City. These gangs, with the crit-
ters that was always campin’ around
them parts a-waitin’ for the Cherokee
Strip to open, would make quite a herd
of tender-feet, an’ it was figured that
the cowboy sports would vastly enter-
tain ’em an’ get ’em enthused to a
point where they would go agin Jar-

an’ Injins for a Wild West show. He
saw Buffalo Bill a-rakin’ in barrels of
money an’ havin’ long hair it seemed
as if he oughter get some of the dough
his own self. His hair was about his
strongest point. He was the son of a
Sedgwick County farmer, an’ he’d got
his name in the paper in connection
with Oklahoma, an’ knowin’ a lariat
from a nosebag why wouldn’t he make
a hit? Pawnee Pete, of course, wasn’t
his real name. He knew Spotted
Horse, Eagle Chief, Left Hand, Good
Chief, an’ maybe a few more Pawnees,
an’ go when his hair’ grows long
enough he babtizes hisself Pawnee
Pete an’ let him go at that,

everything seemed to come Jarvis's
way. It looked first as if the Red

“So I was, but T had business

doin’s over here I rides over to help
swell the rejoicin’ over the Nation's
livin’ to see another birthday. An’
right yere’s the man I've rode thirty
mile flat to mingle with.’
“He runs Pawnee Pete into a sa-
loon an’ lands on him like a hawk on
a June bug, an’ he says:
‘ ‘You're a long haired fraud an’ a
imitation. Yere’s a maverick I'll ran
my brand on so all men may know
who he belongs to.’
‘“ ‘Don’t shoot, Harry. I an’t fixed,
hollers Pawnee Pete, ‘be a good feller,
be social now, Harry, an’ don’t bust
up these social arrangements.’
“I an’t goin’ to shoot nobody,
Petey,” says Hill a-thron Pawnee Pete
down and sittin’ on him. ‘Don’t be
alarmed, gevts,’ he says to the crowd
a-pullin’ his knife, ‘don’t misconstrue
me. I an’t goin’ to break up no ar-
rangements you've made for the
proper observance of this holiday, but
I aims to trim this critter a lot.’

by the committee irom Little Dutch,
which thrivin' town had pooled with
the neighborin’ city of Ninnescah for
a jint jamboree on Independence Day.
The Little Dutch fellers was hot
sports, an’ when they see how sore the
Red Bud committee was about losin’
the band they proposes to do more than
the fair thing; they prompt offers to
play seven-up for the outfit. The
chairmen of the Little Dutch and Red
Bud committees sits down an’ Red Bud
wins by three on a most tremenjus,
not to call it suspicious run of luck.
But the Little Dutch fellers never
hollers, but hefore the evenin’ comes
what with natural philanthropy an’
| the whisky they had accumulated they
agrees to abandon the Ninnescah-
Little Dutch festivities an’ both towns
come over to the Red Bud blowout.

They was one shadow cast over the
mornin’ proceedin’s, but it was only a
passin’ one. A kid from Captain
Scott’s hay ranch, bein’ offended at
the freshness of one of Pawnee Pete’s
hired men, started to clean out the
Wild West. He crippled up Coyote
Charley and had begun on the bow-
legged chap which rides the buckin’
mustangs before he was prized loose.

hisself in the afternoon.

he thought it was dead safe backoap-

a country store keeper. It made Hill

show with Frank Albright an’ p’inted
straight to Winfield to kill off this
gossip. He concluded he’d let him
live though an’ just shear him. Hill
explained this to the crowd an’ they
told him no apologies was needed.
Of course Pawnee Pete's show busts
right there. A wild wester with close
cut hair wouldn’t have much luck, an’
Pete has to lay low for threa years till
his hair kin grow.”

i Sumner on the Declaration,
Among America’s latest statesmen
no one entertained a more exalted re-
i gard for the Declaration, or more per-
sistently emphasized its important re-
: lation to legislation, than Charles
{ Sumner. He always held that the
| Constitution should be interpreted in
| the spirit of the Declaration. He
lsnid: “The Declaration of Independ-
ence has a supremacy grander than
! that of the Constitution, more sacred
| and inviolable, for it gives the law to
| the Constitution. Every word in the
| Constitution is subordinate to
| Declaration.
The Declaration pre-
| cedes the Constitution in time, as it is
| more elevated in character. The Con-
| stitution is an earthly body, if you
| please ; the Declaration of Independ-
| ence is the very soul itself.” —Wash-
| ington Star.
