recognizes his incompetency to prose-

The Citizens convention, the call for
which appears in another column of this
paper, is for the purpose of nominating
a clean business city ticket. Back of
this movement are most of the best
business men in this city irrespective
of former party affiliations. It is the
belief of practically every business
man in this city, that the manner of
handling the city's business can be
greatly improved.lt is fully appreciated
that during the past few months the
city government has been an absolute
failure and a farce. Every good citizen,
who believes in good citizenship and a
clean non-partisan city government
should attend the citizens convention.
Better and cleaner city government
will be the slogan of the citizen's con
vention. Read the Label.
Under the Pure Food Laws baking
powder labels now show the ingredients
of which the powder is made.
Those who appreciate the importance
to health and good baking of using a
pure cream of tartar powder will read
the back of the label carefully and
make sure that the ingredients mention
ed include cream of tartar.
The food law docs not force consum
ers; it merely helps them to protect
themselves. All good housekeepers
want cream of tartar baking powders,
and will not use alum substitutes in the
food, if they know it. As the ingredi
ents are printed on the back of the label,
all may know the facts.
Good baking powder is one of the
most useful things in the kitchen; it is
easily obtained nt any store; the better
it is, the more economical it is in cook
ing materials, and the more it conserves
the health of the family.

pleted it will add greatly to that por
tion of the city and will make a de
lightful abiding place for Mr. Baylor
