State Dairy association closed a most

the delegates on account of the tight
that is to be made to procure favorable
legislation on the pure food question.
The report said that the people of
Kansas were being fed on adulterated
products, when they supposed they
were getting creamery goods. They
ask the legislature to pass a meas-
ure that will compel the sale of all
food products under their proper
names and prevent deception. The
association does not ask the legisla-
ture to prohibit the sale of oleomar-
gerine in the state, but asks that it be
sold under the name of oleo and not
called butter. A committee was ap-
pointed to push the matter in the leg-
islature this winter. Over 81,-
000 was paid out in cash and
premiums to the butter and cream-
ery exhibitors and diplomas were
also awarded to those who
scored 90 per cent or better on their
goods. Out of 188 exhibits, 120 re-
ceived diplomas. In the creamery-

iounding the corner. Of course the ca: had
no fender on it. Nearly everybody in the
vicinity yelled, and naturally the bewil-
dered man looked in the wrong direction.
Quirk didn't yell, though. He jumped to
the side of the track and grabbed the man
by the collar and yanked him clear of the
tracks and almost out of his shoes. Then
he gave him another ferocious jerk to get
him out of the way of an express wagon,
and, getting him at proper range at the same
time, he gave the poor man a kick that DlUlt
have driven his spine up into his hat. And
with the kick Quirk roared:
"Confound you, keep your eyes open when
you are on the street!"
Quirk looked unutterably savage, but Perk
tottered to the curb, sat down arid laughed
until the tears came. Then he said:
"You are the only big enough idiot on
earth to save a man's life and then kick
him for it."—Chicago Times-Herald.
