We urge that all clubs rceate Pure

Your State Committee urges all lo-
cal committees to make and publish,
monthly, "white lists." containing the
names of grocers, butchers, confec-
tioners, etc., who maintain clean, neat
premises, and who protect food on
sale from dust and files. Meat hang-
ing outside a butcher shop! tub but-
ter, exposed in an uncovers d condi-
tion; berries and other foodB exposed
to dust in violation of the pure food
Host dealers will honestly get Into
and stay In the "white list." The
plan has worked splendidly wherever
tried. Regarding dealers who pei>
elstently stay In the "black list." we
urge that their names be quietly sent
to Dr. Abbott. He Is more than wil-
ling to meet every woman's effort and
make It effective.
Dr. Abott wants every housewife In
the State to send him any article of
food or drug thut she deems suspi-
cions. giving him the name of dealer
and manufacturer. This will not In-
volve her In a legal action, but It will
give our commissioner a hint, as to
where he may find adulterated foods.

PURE FOOD REGULATIONS.
Letter From State Commissioner Ab-
bott to Texas Club Women.
The following letter is sent out to
Hie chairmen of Pure Food Commit-
tees by Dr. Abbott. Dairy and Food
Commissioner, advising them about
pure food laws:
Denton, Tex., Feb. 2S.—Dear Mad-
am: In enforcing the pure food law.
we deem It best to begin the work
on the most essential articles of diet,
namely, milk, bread, meat butter. Wo
have found Illegal colors mid pre-
servatives in practically every butch-
er shop in Dallas. Temple, Waco and
Austin. The color has been found
in every ease to be "Msmark Brown."
It has been sold under various trade
names, such as "Zanzibar Carbon,"
"Zulu Red." etc. It is a poisonous
Coal-tar color. The preservative is
usually borax or boraclc acid and is
sold under various trade names also,
such as "Preservaline," "Refrlgerlne,"
etc. Please semi In samples of the
colors and preservatives used by your
In samples of milk or other liquids,
four ounces is sufficient. Get a four-
ounce bottle from your druggist. Sev-
eral articles may be packed In one
bundle and sent to us hv express,
paid here. Label each article In the
ftackage so that we may be able to
identify It. This department will pay
the expense of postage, tnittles, ex-
press. stationery, etc., incurred In
this work. We have only $;i00 with
which to pay for all expenses of trav-
el. hotel bills, laboratory supplies, etc.,
until appropriation is made by the
legislature. The law regulating the
sale of milk is defective. We could
not win a suit under it, but we shall
examine milk just the same and Ret
whatever good from the law we can.
Send samples of anything of a sus-
picious nature that may be brought
to your notice, such as satre, shred-
ded coaeoanut, vinegar, extracts, ci-
der, soft drinks. Hour, baking powder,
lard, molasses, olive oil.mUk. butter,
etc. It is unnecessary to send arti-
cles that were In the hands nf deal-
ers when the law was passed March
2. 19(>7. Dealers have until June 1.
190S, in which to get rid of such ar-
ticles or to have them properly la-
The law regulating the sale ofvine-
trar is also defective. It Is not neces-
sary to send samples of any vinegar
except those that are called apple
vinegar, wine vinegar or malt, vinegar.
The law is also defective in regard
to the use of saccharine, benzoate of
soda, and preservatives generally.
Under separate cover we are send-
ing you a copy of Uie pure food law.
Our best work this year must lie In
making friends with thehonest deal-
ers and manufacturers, and advising
with the on the best methixlsi of
remedying the defects of the law, and
educating them on the adulterations
that are practiced, and on the poison-
ous colors and preservatives in use.
We must Inform the butchers, con-
fectioners and bottlers what colors
they may use.
Coal tar colors allowed:
Red—Amaranth, ponceau 3-R, eryth-
Orange—Orange No. 1.
Green—Light green S. F., yellowish.
Vegetable colors are. for the most
part, harmless and are .threfore, al
Preservatives allowed : Salt, salt
peter, wood smoke, vinegar, pepper
and benzoateof soda to the extent of
1 per cent.
fer to nsslst 11s. When we get our
nillnxs printed, we shall send you a
copy of them, which will assist you In
the interpretation of the law.

step should be towards the treatment of
these important organs. This unpleasant
trouble is due to a diseased condition of

Women as well as men are made miser-

A double cousin in blood lines to

by Curtis Squirrel; he by Black

Black Squirrel; second dam thorough
bred, thus netting a close double-
cross of Black Squirrel, giving him
B0 per cent, of his blood: this makes
him the strongest bred Black Squlr-

«e to breed Lincoln King and
ckefeller mares to. While I don't
claim great show ring records for

and has won first In roadster harness
rings at Dallas fair. But 1 do claim
through his blood lines he Is able to

breeder as there Is In Texas. He has
plenty of size, with great style, and a
good seal brown In color. Will make
the season at Bumbo's Park, for $l'
