Baking powders made from alum or
phosphate may be bought for a r trifle less
than Royal Baking Powder, which is made
from cream of tartar, derived from grapes.
Alum powders are not only cheap, but
they differ greatly in leavening power.
If a cheap baking powder is used for a
fine cake and the cake turns out a failure
there is a waste of costly materials worth
more than a whole can of the cneap bak
Royal Baking Powder produces - the
finest food, and its use therefore, results in
an actual saving.

Can You Afford Any but a Titan
AT present average prices for kerosene and
gasoline, Titan kerosene engines save
their owners about i.ic. per horse power per
hour over gasoline engines.
Figure it this way. On an 8-horse engine the sav
ing is 8.8c. an hour, 88c. in a io-hour day, $88 in ioo
days of work. Say that is all your-engine does in a
It would cost 3 0U OSS more than you need to pay, to
run an 6-horse gasoline engine one year. That is more
than a third of the price of the engine. Can 3011 afford to
throw awa- $S3 a j'ear? Can you afford even to think of
buying a gasoline engine, when you can get a Titan that
uses kerosene? See the Titan dealer and, talk this ever.
He' has some interesting figures to show j-ou.

Was It a Joke?
Last Friday afternoon relatives of
Frank Greer of Acme, Alberta, Can
ada, were delighted when they saw
a good-looking young chap riding
along home in the wragon with his
cousin, John Foreman. Noel Fore
man end Alvin Cashner gave him the
hearty hand-clasp in town, and when
the boys reached the Foreman home
Uncle George was at the barn and,
upon being informed of the possible
identity of the well-dressed stranger,
was glad indeed to see him. And
Frank ( ? )- talked freely of his broth
ers and sisters in Canada and said the
general condition of crops was excel
lent. In the meantime Lee Frouty
rushed over in his auto to see his
cousin Frank, and Fred Prouty's folks
called on the phone to talk to him.
By' that time John, who was bursting
with laughter on the other side of the
team he was frying to unhitch, un
concernedly let the joke get the bet
ter of him, and the tell-tale look on
Do's face gave it away. Disgusted,
Uncle George wended his way to the
bcue. where he called to his wife,
"Cornelia, there is no joke about it,
no jcke at all, but she was in Lin
coln. They say John is laughing yet
about his new-found friend, whom he
allowed to ride into town with him,
and then decided to joke his folks.
John Lynch and wife were visiting
their uncle, Jim Foreman, Wednesday.
Mrs. Jim Foreman 2d accompanied
them and will visit several days.

not allow you to sit down to the table

Relief at Washington.
Washington, D. C, May 18. Genu
ine relief over the Mexican situation
was evident in administration circles
yesterday.' The principal cause was
the assurance conveyed to President
Wilson and his cabinet through Secre
tary Baker that the Carranza govern
ment now is convinced the United
States has no intention of intervening
in Mexican politics and that conse
quently resentment against the puni
tive expedition is rapidly decreasing.
General Scott, chief of staff of the
army, brought this word to Secretary
Baker from his conference at El Paso
with General Obregon, war minister
for the Carranza government.

REPLY TO ORE
Foreign Secretary's Remarks on the
War Brings Sharp
Berlin, May 18. (By Wireless to
Sayville.) "German newspapers dis
cuss at length the statements attrib
uted to the British foreign secretary,
Sir Edward Grey, in the recent inter
view in which he took up the origin
and object of the war," rays the Over
seas News agency. ''The newspapers
agree that Sir Edward merely repeat
ed statements which already had been
refuted by Chancellor von Bethmann
Holiweg, who in his speech of August
19, 1915, discussed Premier Asquith's
utterances on the same topics. The
premier then stated that Germany had
made impossible an undez-standing
with Great Britain in the negotiations
before the war by asking Great Brit
ain to pledge her absolute neutrality
in the event Germany became engaged
"The chancellor pointed out, how
ever, that Germany had asked assur
ances of Great Britain's neutrality in
case war should be forced upon Ger
many, which is quite a different thing
inasmuch as it excluded the possibility
v i v 1
a Sewing Machine at al- !
that Great Britain would be forced to
remain neutral if Germany should en
tertain intentions of agres.-:ive action.
"The newspapers refute the declara
tion of the British foreign secretary
that England had no inicnticn of act
ing aggressively toward Germany by
quoting stcret reports cf Belgian dip
lomas which show t?.e manner in
which British diplomacy hid aimed
for years to isolate Gc-rmrny and ex
pose her to i?:e attack cf a coalition.
"Sir Edward Grey's remarks in re
gard to the restoration cf B2lgiur.i
::re answered by pointing out that
Chancellor von Bethmann-IIclhvcg in
h:"s latest speech indicated that Ger
many favors a really rcutral r.nJ
really independent Bc-lium, a r-U'.te
which is willing to cclIaLciata with
Germany as with ether covr.tries.
"Sir Edward disregard'? v. sll estab
lished factors, the newspapers say,
and therefore his utterances are hard
ly likely to promote the cause of
peace, although he do?s not use the
high-sounding phrase that Germany
ought to be crushed, which previously
has usually been given as Great Brit
ain's object in the war."
