A fine rain visited this vicinity
Monday and Monday nigbt. As
nearly everybody bad their wheat
sown this ram came in a most opportune
portuno time. It will not only
bring the wheat up at onoo , but will
greatly improve the pasture lor
cattle. The value of such a rain al
ibis season of thn year can not bo
estimated. Last year the shortage
of the small grain crop was princi
pally on account of the lack of rain
in tbo early sprint ; , which prevented
tbo seed from sprouting. Tbo out-
look at the present time in very
favorable for a big crop of wboat in

Baking Powder ,
The strongest , purest , most efficient and
wholesome of leavening agents. Not lowest
in price , yet the most economical ; indispensable - . , .
able to all who appreciate the best and most
healthful food.
Our country is enjoying prosperity almost
unsurpassed in its history.
For every one there is money enough to
buy that to eat which is pure , sound , goodj
Why should we use cheap , impure , unhealthful -
healthful articles of food ? There is no
economy in them ; they endanger the health ,
they may cost life. There are reported
almost daily cases of sickness caused by eat
ing cake , puddings or biscuit made with the
cheap , alum baking powders.
In all articles for food buy and use only
the best. The good health of the family is
of first consideration.
Alum is used in many baking powders because it makes
them cheap. It costs less than two cents a pound.
Alum is a corrosive poison. Think of feeding it to chil'
dren I Yet the manufacturers of well-known qlnijt
powders are actually denying that their goods contain it ,
