TEXAS MILLER'S ASSOCIATION
WILL PROSECUTE VIOLATORS.
Even Bran li Adulterated How It Is
Possible for Dealers to Mix Feed
Stuffs and Thereby Make More
Profits Cut Out Rice.
"II Mm ply means that the Texas
Millers' Association lias decided that
all dealers who aro not good muBt bo j
made to bo good" said Olcn Walker .
of this city yesterday. In discussing'
tho announcement published In this
Issue of the Record to tho effort that
the Texns Millers' Association will
Rive $100 reward for the conviction of
any one violating the pure food law
passed by the state legislature nomo
six years ago. The provisions of this
law aro explicit. Tho law records:
"That any person firm corporation
or agent employe or representative of
any person firm corporation niniut
facturer or denier In said manufactur-
ed wheat or corn products In original
packages nnd offering the samo for
sale In this state whether said pack
ages arc sold singly or In lots; and all
manufacturers or dealers of flour
meal or feed from tho nbovo enumerat-
ed grain products in this state when
offering the samo for sale in original
packages whether sold In single pack-
ages or in lots shall place in large
legible letters and figures not less
than two inches in size on tho pack-
age or packages so offcrcu for salo
the name of tho contents nnd tho ac-
tual net weight of tho contents or
said package or packages; and it shall
bo unlawful for any person to sell or
offer for salo any of the articles men-
tioned in this net which havo been
falaely labeled knowing the same to
bu falsely labeled. All adulterated
wheat or corn products shall have
stamped upon the sack or barrels
"This law further provides that any
person found guilty of violating the
provisions of the law shall on convic-
tion bo fined not less than $100 or more
"Tho object of tho Miller's Associa-
tion in offering this reward is to guar-
antee to nil members of tho associa-
tion equal chances in bidding for bus-
ines. You will note that this docs not
prohibit the sale of adulterated wheat
or corn products but It does make it
compulsory on those who adulterate
their foodstuffs to plninly mark the
packages to this effect.
"Of Inte years especially since the
production of rlco has become abun-
dant several of the dealers havo been
adulterating their wheat bran with
rlco bran. Now wheat bran Is worth
from $1S to $22 per ton while rlco
bran Is worth from $12 to $15 a ton
and tho difference between tho price
of these two commodities represents
just that much velvet.
"Then ngaln It has como to our
knowledge that some of tho dealers
havo been mixing their wheat bran
with triturated rlco hulls nice hulls
reduced to a powder ore nearly tho
samo color as wheat bran but there
Is no more nutriment in them than
thero is In so much wood. In fact nt
some of tho rice mills efforts-hnvo been
made to utilize theso rlco hulls for
fuel. It has been found that less thnn
lii per cent of them can be destroyed
by fire. This was demonstrated by
the weighing of tho ashes.
"Again it hns come under our no-
tice that dealers havo been selling
corn chops that have boon adulterated
with rlco mixtures. This Is also in
violation of tho law and wo hopo to
put a stop to It It will be observed that
tho law prohibits dealers as well as
'.manufacturers from selling adulter-
ated wheat and corn stuffs without
making the packages in which they
are sold to this effect
"Tho members of tho Texas Mill-
ers' Association havo carcrully 'con-
sidered this wholq matter. It Is tbb
unanimous opinion of tho members
of tho association that this Js a good
law and should bo observed "Wo will
exert every effort to havo It obeyed and
tho offer of roward that tho associa-
tion makes is made in good faith."

INDIAN TRIDE IS CORRUPT.
Inspector Says that the Wlnnebagoes
Disregard Marriage Customs.
Sioux City la. Oct 29 "Ten timos
worse than those of nny other Indian
reservation In the United States" Is
what A. O. Wright government Indian
inspector says about conditions of
tho Winnebago reservation after mak-
ing an official Investigation regarding
the morals of the Indlnns of that
"I have never heanl of anything like
It " continued Wright. "1 could toll
you things that would raise your hair
but no newspaper would print them
I nm convinced that there Is not an
other Indian reservation In the United
States where conditions would com
pare for rottenness with those of the
Wlnnebagoes. A system of free love
seems to prevail among them and not
very well organized nt that.
"The Indians of that reservation
havo almost no respect for tho mar
riage relation. Coudltioiit arc nothing
short of frightful. Few couples take
tho trouble to go through any sort of
marriage ceremony anil the men nnd
women ihnngo about from ono to nn
other just about as it suits them.
"I have been on numerous resorva
tlons but this bents me. I would not
brand all the men nnd women on the
.reservation as unchaste but I am
i bpenklng of general conditions."
