THE ORTONVlLLE INDEPENDENT THURSDAY, L00oq,O. : rner ] I V/en the United Mine Workers of America met recently in Indianapolis  some of their number wanted to a resolution condemning the Le- g3hn. John Wilkinson of Oklahoma, l,sident of the miners union there, le.ziared: "Gentlemen, you can't put on out of business by condemn- :rag" it.

The post is avganizing a football team, and plans pt on three talent plays this win- :y[r. how, any time. Every member of ! the "Hilltop Eleven" is a Legionaire. Twenty-five ducks were not the on- t-y good things to eat at the dinner and celebration of Starbuck, ffinnesota, Legionaires recently. There were meat balls, potatoes, gravy, salad, let- tuce, cake, ice-creara, tea, coffee and so on. A dance with special orches- tra, almost had to be canceled, so full of duck were the dancers. It is rumored that when the large crowd arrives in St. Charles, Minne: sota to attend the big Armistice Day celebration planned by the Legion, a police court will work over-time .and everyone will be declared "Guilty" and fined a million dollars. The ladies, no doubt, will be interested in the style show, at which ravishing, stunning, apparel direct from Paris (Texas) will be displayed on living models. There will be a clown band on hand to fur- nish the latest music and comedy. Carl Birkman was born at Hanover, Germany. Years ago he emigrated to Fairmont, Minn.

Examinations of the mixture show- ed that it consisted of finely ground particles of the coffee bean contained an excessive amount of chaff. It is made up largely of the thin silver skins and other soft parts of the coffee berry, together with the finer particles which result from the steel-cut pro- eels. Coffe chaff and coffee screenings are not coffee, says the bureau of chem- istry, and mixtures of these with cof- fee are adulterated and misbranded under the provisions of the food and drugs act, if labled, sold, or offered for sale as coffee.

Twenty-five ducks were not the on- t-y good things to eat at the dinner and celebration of Starbuck, ffinnesota, Legionaires recently. There were meat balls, potatoes, gravy, salad, let- tuce, cake, ice-creara, tea, coffee and so on. A dance with special orches- tra, almost had to be canceled, so full of duck were the dancers. It is rumored that when the large crowd arrives in St. Charles, Minne: sota to attend the big Armistice Day celebration planned by the Legion, a police court will work over-time .and everyone will be declared "Guilty" and fined a million dollars.

Examinations of the mixture show- ed that it consisted of finely ground particles of the coffee bean contained an excessive amount of chaff. It is made up largely of the thin silver skins and other soft parts of the coffee berry, together with the finer particles which result from the steel-cut pro- eels. Coffe chaff and coffee screenings are not coffee, says the bureau of chem- istry, and mixtures of these with cof- fee are adulterated and misbranded under the provisions of the food and drugs act, if labled, sold, or offered for sale as coffee. Appropriate action will be taken in all cases found to be in violation of the law, say the offi. cials. He was being examined preparatory tc taking out an insurance policy.
