The ss8ge'of the pure food law
by congress last winter and (he prep-
arations that are going ahead for Its
enforcement after' the beginning of
the nest year have brought out some
startlfng Information. The discovery
has been made that more causes of
appendicitis are due not to the lodg-
ing of grspo seed and other obstruc-
tions In tbe human appendix but to
the preservatives that In recent years
mt packers and other food manufac-
turers have been dealing out In Ken-
erous quantities along wltli their
wares to keep thorn pure and to t
them saleable. Chief among them
are borax and Its equivalent boraclc

so much so In fact that the Krflpu seed
theory must fall of Its own weakness.
Sconce however is sufficient for
almost any task demanded of It and
now many reputable physicians are
declaring their belief that appendi
citis Is due directly to the quantities
of boraclc acid which the average
person takes Into the stomach during
a life-time One leading physlcinn
hss given It a his belief that a little
boric acid Is harmless but In the con-

The situatlun is one that Is ejusll;

laymen physicians and scientists
alike. In factthe people who are nec-

WRITES TO LOCAL HEBREWS ON
Jews As Well a the Seventh' Day
Adventlsts Want Religious Toler-
ance In the Constitution of the
Sometime since the Hebrews of the
new state had In circulation a peti-
tion to the prospective candidates for
delegates to the constitutional conven-
tion asking that no antagonistic arti-
cle to religious Mberty be Incorporat-
ed In the constitution of the statu.
A copy of this petition fell Into the
hands of Hon. Oscar Strauss recent-
ly appointed to a cnblnot folio by
President as secretary of commotce
Mr. Straus has delivered soveral
addresses on the subject o: "The De
velopment of Religious Liberty In
tbe United States." In response to t
letter written Mr. Strauss the fol-
lowing was rece'vod la reply ex.ires
Ing a few of bin "lews on the sub
ject of religious tolerance .
'To embody religion In tho constitu
tion Is contrary not only to the Ameri
can Ideals but to the words and spir
it of the fathers of the country. The
separation of church and state In
these United State Is the chief cor
ner-stone of our Institutions. The Sub-
ject la one to which I have given
deliberate and thoughtful considera
tion and some fifteen yoars ago I em-
bodied them In lectures delivered be
fore'thq Yale university and other in
stitutions of learning. 1 have directed
my publisher to send you' n copy of
this brochure entitled "Tho Develop
ment of Hellglous Liberty In the
United States." Therein you will find
the whole subject elucidated and fair-
ly presented. You can use It or any
part of 1L In any way that you wish.
"I am Interested m this subject not
as a Jew for my religion Is as broad
as tho constitution. It Is not alone th?
Jew that objects to Incorporating re
ligious tenets In organic laws but
the Ilaptlst church as a body as well
as all those of every denomination
wliose eyes arc not. blinded by nar-
"To Incorporate the Jewish Jesus
or the ChrUtlan Christ lit the consti

enough to include the bellover as well
as tho non-believer."
