standard of 12 per cent of butterfat for all ice cream sold was held uncon stitutional in a decision handed down by Judge W H McHenry of the dis trict court yesterday The finding of the court are regarded as an import ant victory for dealers in ice ceram over the state Judge McHenyr sustained a demur er interposed by the Hutchinson San ders and Arctic ice cream compan ies of Des Moines to informations charging them with having sold cream not up to the required standard The constitutionality of the law was attacked in Justice Conroys court when the proprietors of the three companies were arrested Jus tice Conroy overruled the demurrer and fined each of the companies An appeal was taken to the district court The facts upon which this law is founded are simply arbitrary and the presence of 12 per cent of butterfat in ice cream has no relation what ever and cannot possibly have any relation to public health morals or welfare says Judge McHenry In his opinion Ice cream is not a natural food product but a manufactured combi nation of other ingredients To one man ice cream containing 12 per cent of butterfat might be beneficial and acceptable to his taste To another man ice cream containing but 6 per cent of butterfat might be more suit able and in both instances it is matter of common knowledge that it is a harmless food product not inpur Suggestions That Might Well be Observed by Certain Hub CIvius Waterloo Reporter Commending the statements of William Gallowny in the Reporter Saturday It is to call a halt on such meuhods as he points out exist in Waterloo today Perhaps a rumor law is not a ne cessity It would not be if the old spirit of the city motto prevailed Like any dreaded disease it steals upon us at night and no firm or cor poration is immune There is no cure for tuberculosis There is a treatment that assists in keeping down the dis ease for a time but in tho end there is a fatality Pure fresh air living out doors is perhaps the most ef fective preventative So with ill founded rumor air and daylight will knock the props from under and it is the duty of every citizen to see that the pure air circulates about tihe de cayed product If some one tells a tale without first hand knowledge of the actual facts that is injurious nail them right there Insist on his going to the fountain head and investigating If John Smith says Peter Jones has shut down his factory and thrown 1200 men out of employment make John prove it Nothing cures a dog from sucking eggs as quickly as an overdose of eggs If Smith had to re peat his rumor to Jones with all its embellishments he would be mighty careful of his statements and the truth of them The trouble has been that no one is free from the afiuse the jobber manufacturer newspaper man and the retail merchant are all victims of the rumer monger and the knocker It is a shame and a disgrace There Is plenty for everybody to do andall will be mighty busy in taking care of their own business LIKE OELWEIN W H KETGHOM FAILS TO APPEAR AT CAPITAL Ugona Who Created SUr t to Cherokee is Silent Des Moines Dec What has be come of W H Kctchum of Algona who made such a stir last fall about efforts made to railroad him to the state hospital He secured from the supreme court an order to stay proceedings that he might have time to appeal to the high er court from an order of Judge Lee committing him to tho hospital at Cherokee Now attorneys in Kos suth county have asked the court to vacate the ant permit him to be committed forth merely the fact that Kctchum has not lied the paper as ho had promised to do Noth ing is indicated as to what has be come of him Tho caao was an unusually peculiar one in that Mr Ketchum made an ex cellent appearance before Bhe court and apparently had a good case
