Washington, D. C.—Senator Owen of
Oklahoma donned his war paint and
feathers in the Senate Monday and
went after the alleged sugar trust in
a denunciation which fairly sizzled
with heat. His argument, although
not extended, was vigorous and force-
ful, and the Senate was forced to sit
up and take notice.
After sending to the secretary's .lesk
a newspaper editorial condemning the
methods of the alleged corporation,
Senatof Owen turned to his col-
.eagues and said:
"This account points out one of the
most evil and insidious consequences
of the building up of this country of
these giant organizations protected by
this so-called tariff, which has led
to poisoning the fountain of informa-
tion of the people of the United States
so that millions of dollars have been
stolen from the people of the United
States. This fact is not mentioned by
the leading newspapers of the city of
New York, but, on the contrary, full-
page advertisements of the American
Sugar Refining Company appear in
lieu of the truth which ought to be
jmade known to the people of the
Consequently, he asked to have the
newspapers' attacks read so that it
might appear in the Tecord, which was
Upon the conclusion of the reading
of .tlhe clipping, which was an account
of the alleged recent frauds per-
petrated by the sugar trust Owen
declared the words "above No. 16
Dutch standard in color" should be
struck from the tariff bill, and asked
that the finance committee report to
tlie Senate "why these words should
not be struck from the bill."
The lumber schedule of tlhe tariff
bill was under consideration an the
Senate almost the entire day, with
Senators Root, Heyburn, Borah, and
Dolliver contending on the one hand
for protection for the industry and
Senators Clapp, Burkett and McCum-
ber arguing as strenuously against
that policy. The day closed with more
than a two-thirds vote against Sena-
tor McCumber's free lumber amend-
ment, the ballot Showing 25 for and
Sheer white goods, in fact, any fine j
wash goods when new, owe much of
their attractiveness to the way they ]
are laundered, this being done in a
manner to enhance their textile beau-
ty. Home laundering would be equal-
ly satisfactory if proper attention was
given to starching, the first essential
being good Starch, which has sufficient
strength to stiffen, without thickening
the goods. Try Defiance Starch and
you will be pleasantly surprised at the
improved appearance of your work.

Don't Poison Baby.
FORTY YEAES AGO almost every mother thought her child must lava
PAREGORIC or laudanum to make it sleep. Theso drugs will produce
sleep, and A FEW DROPS TOO MANY will produce the SLEEP FROM WHICH
THERE IS NO WAKING. Many are the children who have been killed or
whose health has been ruined for life by paregoric, laudanum and morphine, each
of which is a narcotic product of opium. Druggists are prohibited from selling-
either of the narcotics named to children at all, or to anybody without labelling
them " poison." The defin Ition of " narcotic " is: "A medicine which relieves pain,
and produces sleep, but which in poisonous doses produces stupor, coma, convul-
sions and death." The taste and smell of medicines containing opium are disguise^
and sold under the names of "Drops," "Cordials," "Soothing Syrups," etc. Yon
should not permit any medicine to be given to your children without you or
your physician know of what it is composed. CAST0RIA DOES NOT CON-
TAIN NARCOTICS, if it bears the signature of Chas. H. Fletcher.
