AMERICANS AND CHEESE.
We Not Only Eat More of It, We Also
Make All the Foreign Brands.
Americans used to be half apologetic,
half defiant, when they took cheese.
They had so often been told that it was
indigestible that they would as soon
have questioned the Rule of Three.
The status of cheese is different now.
Physicians are declaring—and the people
are believing that cheese, if eaten prop-
erly. is not only digestible, but also more
nutritious, weight for weight, than al-
most any other food.
A great amount of the cheese manu-
factured in this country is exported to
those places in Europe which have been
and still are famous for their cheeses,
and our product is fully equal to the
It is said that Stilton cheese is made
in this country, sent to England, where
a cloth is put around it, and reshipped
to this and other countries as the genuine
English Stilton. The cloth used puts a
peculiar print upon the cheese rind which
is supposed to identify it.
However this may be, this country is
successfully making cheeses which were
once made only in certain European dis-
tricts. Chief among these is the Swiss
cheese, called Schwcitzerkase by the
Germans and gruyere by the French, an
excellent brand of which is made in
Much of the native cheese is made in
the State of New York. It is called sim-
nlv New York State cream cheese and
runs fiom the new, nearly white and
nearly tasteless cheeses to the dark yel-
low or dark reds, which in flavor and
appearance resemble• Stilton, Parmesan,
Edam and similar European makes.
To get any particular kind the pur-
chaser must—except it be American
Swiss, Roquefort. Limburger or the
like—go to the shop and buy by sample.
Most of the American cheeses, indeed,
are nameless. In Europe the call for a
cheese of a certain name always brings
the same product.
The white cream cheeses, such as the
Neufchatel from Normandy, are made in
this country to perfection.
For the eight months ended February,
1905. the cheese exported from this coun-
try amounted to 7.202.388 pounds. For
the corresponding period of 1906 it was
5,089,093 pounds. This falling off is
merely a coincidence and does not indi-
cate a. lessening of the product, because
the industry in this country is increas-
ing. During the last four years it has
nearly doubled and a feature of the sit-
uatlon i;; that Americans arc becoming
great cheese eaters, a fact which may,
indeed, account for a part of the falling
off of the exports.—What to Eat.

Butler and the Students.
The following true story of Benjamin
F. Butler I have never seen in print.
During one of his warmest political cam-
paigns he was advertised t make a
speech in a town hall situatct near one
of the smaller New England colleges.
Some of the students of the college who
did not sympathize with Butler in his
political aspirations agreed to have a
little fun at his expense. As a prelim-
inary move they decided to wait until
after the time for beginning the meet-
ing. and then go in a body to the hall,
march in together, making as much noise
as possible in securing seats, and thus
compel the speaker to pause in his re-
marks. Then a series ot various inter-
ruptions was arranged, to he started at
different times upon the signal of a
General Butler had been speaking for
ten minutes when the hall door opened
and about. forty students entered and
marched down toward the platform. Thev
kept perfect step, and the steady tramp,
tramp, tramp, made it impossible for the
speaker to go on.
Quietly waiting until they had all taken
their seats, Butler said, with a smile:
"It is perfectly evident which end of
themselves these young men can use
best." There were yells of laughter and
hearty applause from the audience, and
no further attempts to interrupt tho
speaker were made by the students.—Bos-

Some Attorneys and Traffic Men
Call Anti-Pass Clause Absurd.
Test of Law Is Predicted.
SOME QUESTIONS AS
TO LEGAL PROPOSITIONS
NEW YORK. Aug. 28.—What tho posi-
tion of leading Western railroads is to be
on the anti-pass clause of the Hepburn
law is reflected somewhat in the results
of a recent conference and depends finally
on an interpretation which a committee
of five was instructed to obtain from the
Interstate Commerce Commission. Fif-
teen railroads submitted a list of ques-
tions to their respective legal departments
which they wanted answered for the
guidance of traffic managers. The at-
torneys considered the rate law and the
questions presented. The result of that
conference is embodied in a report handed
to the railway managers. It is under-
stood that these answers are to deter-
mine the policy of the railroads inter-
The provision of the law specifying per-
sons to whom free transportaion may be
given, resulted in a long list of questions.
The decision is that a railroad may fur-
nish free transportation to its employes,
officers, agents, surgeons, physicians and
attorneys at law and their families. The
word "family" is construed to mean mem-
bers of the household of the employe and
relatives dependent upon dm. The ques-
tion, "Does the exemption of ministers
of religion include their wives and fam-
ilies?" was answered in the negative. Tnc
free transportation given to caretakers of
live stock, fruit and poultry includes
only the journey with tne products and
the return journey. If the caretaker
does not ride with tho products of which
he has charge, he is not entitled to trans-
portation. Here are some of the other
questions! and answers:
Q. Can free transportation be used in
whole or in part in the settlement of
A. Yes. if the claim is for money and
a fixed amount of transportation, having
.x definite value, is given as the agreed
value of the claim, or that portion of It
which is settled. Such transportation is
Q. Will it he lawful to transport a pas-
senger or check nis baggage, or sell him
a sleeping car ticket for an interstate trip
whose transportation consists in part of
a State pass?
A. A pass for journey between two
points In the same State cannot lawfully
he used for part of a continuous inter-
state journey. Consequently no privilege
in the way of checking baggage, selling
sleeping car ticket, or other accommoda-
tions can he given the holder of the pass
for his interstate Journey. We assume
in this answer, however, that the holder
of the pass is not one of those persons
entitled under the law to receive free
Q. Can land and immigration agents
who are not solely in the employ of the
railroad company and not on its payroll,
be paid for their services in whole or in
part, with transportation?
A. Not unless the indicated persons
are employes of the company, in such
sense that the company could lawfully
give them transportation as a pass or
Q. In respect to circuses and similar
organizations, must they be handled sub-
ject to the provisions of this act with
reference to the publication of rates, dis-
crimination in trie rates, etc.. both as
to freight and passenger traffic?
A. No, they may be dealt with by the
railroad company by special contract, the
company stipulating therein that so far
as tho transaction is concerned it is a
No Passes for
Immigration agents and persons seek-
ing location for industries cannot have
fiee transportation. Neither can special
rates bo made on freight which is shipped
for the purpose of building or establish-
ing a new industry.
An important question is touched upon
in section 21, which refers to "cases jf
loss and damage arising from such
catastrophes as 'flood at Kansas Cltv'
or any other claim which may be at-
tributable to the act of God. the public
enemy, or result from some inherent vice
or defect in the freight itself." The ques-
tion asked regarding this follows: Can
such claim be paid as a matter of policy
without liability to the penalties pre-
scribed by the law, when the policy inav
be to conciliate the shipper in order to
obtain a fair share of his business, or
the policy may be directed toward po-
litical sentiment or interest?
This was the answer: Claims cannot
he settled as a matter of policy or to
influence public sentiment.
A long list of questions and answers
concerns the posting of tariffs. Accord-
ing to the answers it is not necessary to
Dost, tariffs at destinations if they are
posted at the shipping point. The pub-
lication of joint tariffs from a place in
a foreign country to a place in the Unit* d
States is required. Among the more im-
portant subjects discussed is this.
Q.—Does the lew prohibit a road from
publishing a through rate to or from a
point on another road without the con-
sent of that other road and all the inter-
mediate roads (if there are such) over
which the traffic moves?. A.—No.
Shippers on the line of the Pennsyl-
vania, the Baltimore & Ohio and the
Reading have herm notified officially that
all special arrangements for the hand-
ling of private cars will become void
under the new rate law on Aug. 28. This
is In conformity with the action of Car
Service Association managers, which
brings the Pittsburg Terminal Railroad
of the Steel Corporation into line with
the per diem charges.
In one of the notes sent out by the
Reading this statement appears: "We.
do not know that you have any special
agreement for the handling of your cars,
hut if any exists it will cease to be ef-
fective on Aug. 28 The Reading Com-
rany intends to obey the provisions of

NEW PROBLEMS OF MARRIAGE.
Some of the Complications Caused by j
the Woman Who Works.
Marriage presents problems at the pres-
ent day which were never encountered in
the past. Here is a case in point:
A young man and his betrothed were
schoolmates and became engaged during
their last year in the high school. The
understanding was that they should wait
until lie was able to marry.
He left home and plunged into business
life. It was hard sledding for some years,
but recently he pushed his salary up to
the $2(M> mark, and was ready to marry.
Meanwhile his Rosalinda had not seen
fit to sit down and wait for seven years
for him to get ready to marry her. She
had gone into business herself, and as
she had both brains and good family
connections she is now confidential
secretary to a house which pays her
$1800 a year.
The man must, ask her to cut her in-
come in two if she marries him. He
does not blame her at all for going to
work, but he does feel that his position
is not an inspiring one to contemplate,
for he must either ask her to cut her
income in two to marr yhim. or else let
her go on working for a salary after
Cupid and Pecunla have not yet set-
tled their differences in this case. In
similar cases they have settled it in a
variety of ways.
A very few years ago one of the big
dry goods stores employed a woman as
buyer for one important department.
She went tf> Europe four times a year,
with all her expenses paid and a big
salary. In one of her trips she became
acquainted with the purser of the vessel,
and they made a love match of it.
The business woman was delighted to
give up her fine position and big sal-
ary to marry the man she loved and go
to live with him in a tiny place they
purchased out on Long Island. She was
charmed with her little home and raised
chickens and flowers galore; and when
the baby came their happiness would
have been complete but for her one great
This was that her husband was away
from her nearly all the time. She worried
so about that that finally he gave up
his place as purser on a liner and tried
to get a job ashore.
Like a good many other men who leave
their own line of work he did not suc-
ceed. Finally she said:
"Now, see here Johnny, you can't get a
job ancl if you did you wouldn't earn
more than one-third of what I can. If
you are to go to sea I might about as
well have no husband at all.
"Now, if you will stay down here In
the country and look after the baby and
the chickens and the roses, I'll go back
into my old place again; it's always
waiting for me."
It was fixed up in that way. and the
household is now running on that plan.

FARLEY'S STRIKE BREAKERS.
Treinload En Route to San Francisco
for Use on Surface
NEW YORK, Aug. 28.—James Farley,
the strike breaker, has, says a morning
pnper, contracted to break the street rail-
way strike in San FVancisco.
Two special trains loaded with strike
breakers left Jersey City at 10:30 o'clock
last night for San Francisco. It was
estimated that there were 800 men on the
two trains, which had ten cars.
On each car were four of Farley's de-
tectives, armed with clubs like the night
sticks carried by policemen.
ESvery preparation had been made to
feed the men on the trip and prevent any
unneccesary delay In getting to the
coast. Great quantities of cooked food
were put on the trains. A beer supply
consisting of 8000 bottles was on hand
to stave off thirst.
Precautions were taken to keep the
thing as quiet as possible. The men
were brought over to Jersey City in a
special ferry boat from Twenty-third
Street. Many of them went without a
change of clothing and there were indi-
cations that there was great hurry in
getting the men off.
Some of the men, it was said, had not
notified their families that they were off
on a long trip.
Arrangements have been made by Far-
ley, it is understood, to start another
batch for San Francisco early tomorrow
