Rather a Uooil Ruke:OtY.
Mr. P. J. Moran, in an article in
the Atlanta Constitution, says: “As
an illustration of the manner in which
the farmers of the country have lost
1 1 eretotbre. it is only necessary to re
peat a statement recently made by
Mr. Hester, of New Orleans, that out
of an annual cotton receipt of one
million three hundred thousand bales
in that city over thirty-seven thousand
bales were made up out of samples
which had been ruthlessly plucked
from the bales by the men who handl
ed them, which should have gone in
to the parishes of Louisiana." Not
the least tneri'. of American Cotton
Company's Roundlap bale is that be
sides its other economies it prevents
this unjust tribute from being levied
on the farmer.

Beware of food Samples.
Quite recently in New York two
deaths occured from poisoning by the
use of powders sent to the victims by
mail. In Leavenw’orth, Kans., the
other day nearly every doctor in town
was called to attend the children who
had gathered up, eaten, and been
made ill by samples of an article left
at houses by canvassers for advertis
Alum baking powders have always
been favorite articles for this sampling
business. Yet there is nothing more
liable to lead to danger than the prac
tise of using the various samples of
baking powdei left at the door. They
are presented by irresponsible parties
in appearance are not'distinguishable
from arsenic, and indeed, in Indiana
some time since one package was
found, after it had caused the death
of the housewife, to have been
mixed with that poison.
It is safer to refuse all samples or
medicine offered at the door. Pure
cream of tartar baking powders sell
upon their merits, and are never ped
dled or sampled.
