I ESaRBSBaKBSSSSSESSSSSsS i A Citizen's Convention 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.
