The Habit of Telling Lies.

Telling lies is the very worst thing a man ever did. A man who is a liar is capable of doing anything worse. In the first place, he gives himself an awful lot of work trying to remember the lie he told, and most of the time he forgets what he said and is caught. It's too much trouble to lie about anything, and it is very cowardly anyway, because it shows you are afraid of the person to whom you lie, and there is no one in the world worth being afraid of. So when you do anything you shouldn't and are asked about it, shove your chin against it, and tell the truth, if you get killed for it. You have no idea how highly people respect a man who is known to tell the truth. It means that he is brave, fearless, strong, and honest, and the whole world is looking out for such men, to make them bank presidents, and big bugs generally. But where a lie hurts worst is yourself. You lose your own self respect. You know you are afraid of the person to whom you lied, and you feel sick and sore over it. And then again, you get into the habit, and it is a frightful one to break, and some fellows never get cured.-Robert Lloyd.

The Poison Laws require poisonous drugs and chemicals to be properly labeled and their sale recorded in a Poison Register.

The Standard Poison Register has been prepared to meet the requirements of the Laws of Ohio, Kentucky, Tennessee, West Virginia, Pennsylvania and Michigan, with lists of the articles which must be labeled poison, the style of label required and the sale of which must be registered.

The book contains a reprint of these laws, a synopsis of the treatment to be adopted in cases of poisoning, the hasty preparation and administration of antidotes, a list of articles which must be labeled and their sale registered, the symptoms caused by the most commonly used poisons, and a large number of ruled pages for recording sales.

Every time a druggist fails to discharge these duties he is liable to fine, and his neglect may make him defendant in a civil suit for heavy damages.

[NDER this head there appeared an editorial in The National Stockman and Farmer for January as follows:

One of the fallacies of today is the idea that everything can be made straight by legislation, and one of the results of that idea is an occasional law that is unjust to men engaged in honorable and useful business enterprises. Ohio has a law which might have been intended to prevent certain evils in the manufacture or sale of patent feeds or remedies, but it actually creates an injustice to honorable manufacturers of standard goods, encourages the pirating and counterfeiting of useful things and exposes the public to the evils that result from such frauds. Proper regulation of the manufacture and sale of feedstuffs and remedies is all right. We all believe in it, including the manufacturers of standard feeds and remedies. But legislation that compels the manufacturer of such goods to expose to all would-be counterfeiters his exact formula is unjust to him and unsafe for the public. The Ohio law on this point should be promptly amended, not only to do justice to manufacturers, but to protect the public from imitations and counterfeits of products which have achieved a high reputation for usefulness.

This is the first evidence coming to our notice that our friends, the farmers, are waking up to the fact that they are being used to serve certain political purposes and at the same time cajoled into the belief that these same political efforts are in their interests.

The above editorial does not go deeply into the matter, but does present one view of it which no doubt will lead to further thought and understanding.
