MOST people think all flour is clean because it looks clean.
When wheat comes to the mill the crease in the wheat
kernel is full of dirt. Unless every kernel is washed, and
scoured, and the flour thoroughly purified by the most modern
machinery, the dirt is ground up with the wheat, remains in the
flour, and goes into the bread. s You then pay for the dirt in the
flour, so much per pound, and of course the dirt has no food
value. Bread made from cheap flour which is not clean con
tains less nourishment, it gets stale quicker and costs the
family more in the end than bread made from higher priced flour.

br of commerce met Wednesday even

or ho belongs to clnss one or class

At n meeting of tho city council
Tuesday evening a commltteo from
the cemetery association appeared be
foro tho body and asked that tho city
take over the cemetery and that It
hereafter be run by tho city. Harry
Dixon, Anna Kramph and Geo. E.
French wero on the commltteo that
appeared beforo the council to mako
tho request.
At tho last session of tho legisla
ture cities of tho size of North Hlutte
wero given authority to tako over cem-
Leterles that wero already In oxlstenco
and tho cemetery association hopes to
have this dono by this city. Tho re
ceipts of tho cemetery aro not suffi
cient to carry on tho work of tho cem
etery ns It should bo carried on and
to keep everything in goou snape. as
tho cemetery now stands It Is an cye
soro to tho city and tho present board
of directors has dono tho best It
could to keep It In shape.
To proporly caro for tho cemetery
grounds It would require tho expend
iture of about fifteen hundred dollars
for Improvements on tho wator sys
tem and tho city could extend their
system to that placo at much less ex
pense and furnish tho needed water.
Thero Is now In tho treasury of the as
sociation, to bo turned over to tho
city If they will tako over tho ceme
tery, tho sum of about eighteen hun
dred dollars. Also tho endowed lots
would bring In bout ono thousand
dollars collateral. Thoro aro about
threo hundred lots to bo sold yet and
tho cemetery will then bo exhausted
as a burviiiK itround and will bo only
a park. Tho receipts from grave dig
ging, oto., will amount to nearly ?0UU
per year and with tho cash on hands
tho city could tako caro of tho ceme
tery as It will require without any
lovy for this year, whllo tho associ
ation can not beautify It as It should
bo to bo a credit to our city. Tho mat
ter was referred to a committee com
posed of T. M. Collagen, M. B. Crosby
and J. 11. Stono, and thoy wero asked
to Investigate tho affairs of tho associ
ation and submit a report to tho coun
cil. Tho lovy for tho now sower districts
