INDIVIDUAL AND COMMUN
There are .persons who will
harshly criticise their own kin
folks, failing to realize that often
- the faults or sins of those criticis
ed, reflect in some degree upon the
critic, while the offense committed
is a personal affair that might call
for condolence and sympathy, in
stead of harsh treatment.
There are also those in some
communities, whose policy is to
discredit local condition, to find
fcult with everything possible in a
city's daily life, and to consider
that trade and commercial com
petition consists in pulling down
character and reputation, that to
mount upward, to succeed in busi
ness, is to do so upon the besmir
ched reputations of men who have
been forced into failure, because of
unjust and untruthful commercial
and social treatment
A community is only a big fam
ny, wnere the relationship may
not be blood, but it should be a
relationship baaed upon a fraternal
sentiment that higher civilization,
education and a liberal Christian
ity can fasten upon a people, malt
ing them truly citizens, in the best
sense of the word.
Every city has natural advan
tages, that mark it, make it pe
culiar in its personality. Every
trade, profession, business man,
citizen can increase these local ad
vantages, and by so doing the city
goes forward with a commercial
rush, so that every citizen is bene
fitted. All this mutuality of ef
fort and work has individual sin
cerity and honesty in it, and there
is a joint confidei.ee shown, and
not one person betrays this com
munity confidence, by attempting
to work some individual "scheme
on the side." Such united action
and confidence can only be follow
ed by a healthy growth, a live
municipality, with every citizen a
partaker in the local prosperity.
it is tne tauure to fully recognize
this mutuality, this joint propriet
orship, this inseparatenBss of the
individual from his community,
that works local deadneas of trade
and growth. Every municipal
benefit, is a citizen benefit, there
fore it is good business to strive
for the union of a citizenship, that
will work for local benefits.
THE DATE ON COLD STORAGE
The sensational climax in the
forced let go of immense quantities
of cold storage food, eggs and poul
try specially, with the resulting
loss, of millions of dollars to the
cold storage people is but a natur
al result For years both the pro
ducer and consumer have bean at
the mercy of the cold storage trust
which had to keep piling up
products to hold prices up.
unately this country was able to
over up ply the trust food bsjrersj
and failure came. At present the
price of eggs is at the lowest point
in years, and other food products
But 'ill this does not warrant the
abolishment of cold storage plants,
for these serve a moat useful and
necessary purpose whan rightly
conducted, and will pay the owners
a good return upon the investment.
There is no reason for cold storage
speculation, that is, tha cold stor
age trust buying food products
from the farmer at their own price,
and holding these products for the
consumer to bny at a forced price.
More than this, the consumer must
buy an article that might be six
months or two years in storage,

eggs and poultry, but this preser
vation has a time limit, ana no
person will buy cold storage pro
ducts, if the same can be purchas
ed in the grocery store or meat
market. When cold storage is men
tioned it is suggestive not of pal
table food, but of food of uncer
tain age, that must have its storage
taint and no matter how skillfully
the cook may disguise it, the hu
man stomach will rebel against it.
Legislation is demanded that eve
ry article of food going into cold
storage shall be dated upon its
reception, so that every package
will be known as to its age in cold
storage, and thus the consumer
may know exactly the age of the
food purchased, and the public
inspector may know when cold
storage food is at the state when
it should be condemned as unfit
for human food. ,

After being made the gas passes thro
a system of condensers sad scrubbers.
