How often do you
eat this food
A short time ago there appeared in
the columns of one of the prominent
magazines an article on building brain
and muscle by the proper selection of
the foods you eat
A good many people were surprised
to find oatmeal placed at the top of the
list of foods recommended but if the
article had appeared in an English or
Scotch paper every reader would have
expected to see first place given to
good oatmeal
As a matter of fact Great Britian
and Europe come to us for tremendous
quantities of Quaker Oats because it
represents to them perfect food being
the richest in flavor and best in clean
liness and purity of all oatmeals
Americans should eat more Quaker
Oats the results would soon show
themselves in improved conditions of
health and strength 55

living at Lincoln Illinois Recently in
terviewed hesuid I have suffered a
long time with kidney and bladder trou

ache and pains in my kidneys with sup
pression and oftentimes cloudy voiding
While upon arising in the morning I
would get dull headaches Now I have
taken three bottles of Foleys Kidney
Pills and feel 100 per cent better I am
not bothered with kidneys or bladder
and once more feel like my old self All
this I owe solely to Foleys Kidney Pills
and I always recommend them to my
fellow sufferers

Expressmen Explain Why Rates Have
Ri3en on Womens Headgear
Willi an apprehensive group of man
milliners looking on the other after
noon the express companies struck a
telling blow at the mushroom hat in
dustry It happened at the interstate
commerce commission inquiry into the
rates for transporting millinery be
fore Commissioner lames S Harlan at
In the last two years the express
companies have been putting up the
rales on hats until they are nearly
twice what they were in 1100 Tin
hut makers were before the commis
sion to lind out why C W Stockton
who did most of the talking for the
express companies said
When first began making rates
on womens hats the hats were small
neat compact affairs that looked like
a pat of butter and were fastened to
the weareis head with a bit of string
We charged by the pound at that time
Since then the hats have been grow-
steadily in width height length
and the fourth dimension but they
havent grown an ounce in weight
Why five years ago you could get
from 000 to 3000 womens hats into
an ordinary express car Now you
have to take out the double doors to
get one in
Another thing These hat people
have been coming to us demanding
damages for dents which our oxpress
meu make in these hats occasionally
Why everybody knows that the more
dents a hat has in it the better hat it
Lecturer Advocates Their Use
Rural Free Delivery
Aeroplanes for use in rural free de
livery was the plan advocated the oth
er night by Wilbur R Kimball in a
lecture on aeronautics at the West
Side Young Mens Christian associa
tion in New York city
There has been a remarkable devel
opment within the last few months in
aeroplanes said Mr Kimball and
today their practicability has been ful
ly established There is no reason
now why the aeroplane should not be
used in delivering mail in the rural
free delivery system
The government has gone to great
expense to establish our present rural
free delivery but it is subject to de
lays especially in the winter months
because of the storms which make bad
roads With the aeroplaue however
the farmers hard earned free delivery
would be above poor roads His mail
would be dropped in front of his door
in a little leather pouch from the aerial
delivery wagon which would then
speed on to the next farmhouse to
deliver its packet
Mail could also be collected by areo
plane mail wagons in the rural dis
tricts with an arrangement by which
the aerial chauffeur could lower a
hook and catch up packets of mail
Warning of the Great Inundation
Lightly Treated
Paul- W Linebarger of Milwaukee
Wis formerly a judge in the Philip
pines who was in Paris when the re
cent flood began to show itself re
turned to New York the other day
Mr Linebarger noticed that the pop
ulace as a whole was inclined to make
light of a warning from the hydro
graphic bureau to be prepared for an
unusual flood Parisians stood on the
bridges over the Seine and made friv
olous remarks about the bureau some
saying to each other Look out or
youll get your feet wet
In the provinces the warning was
heeded and at one town Mr Line
barger saw a dike built chiefly of coal
to check an expected invasion of wa
New Comets Speed
Forty one miles a second measures
the speed at which Comet A 1910 is
traveling from the earth according to
a telegram recently received at the
Harvard college observatory in Cam
bridge Mass from the Lick observa
tory The telegram states that Mr
Albrecht photographed the spectrum
of the comet and found the sodium
lines displaced thus indicating the
motion of the luminary
So far as known the new comet can
not be identified with any other comet
that has ever visited us and it is
likely that it is moving in a parabola
which is an open curve that does not
return into itself It is one of the
tramp family of celestial wanderers
and seems to have had no special
discoverer but was discovered by
about everybody
Signaling Military Balloons
A device for sigualiug to military
balloons at night has been fixed on
the tower of the railway station at
Spandau It consists of a large hori

thirty eight big electric incandescent

mittent lights for aerial navigation are
also to be erected at Nauen and Pots

made with the intermittent lights on

Ridding Kansas of Coyotes
The war on the coyotes in Kiowa

Declare They Are tiis Only Real
Object to Bill For Federal Control of
the Air Say Their Small Instru
ments Can Send Messages Only a
Short Distance They Blame thfc
Hired Operators
Alarmed by a resolution Introduced
in congress on Dec 17 last calling
for the appointment of a board or
experts to prepare a comprehensive
system of regulations to govern the
operation of all wireless plants the
amateur wireless operators are pre
paring to defend what they consider
their rights The editor of a publica
tion devoted to the Interests of the
wireless amateur has received 0000
letters from amateurs protesting
against the restriction of wireless
rights to government and commercial
stations which they fear will be the
outcome of the resolution
It is on the ground that the wireless
has been largely perfected by ama
teurs that the latter base their claims
to consideration They say that they
are the only ones actively interested
in experimenting with new apparatus
because they can do so on a small and
inexpensive scale
Individuality In a Spark
In fact the amateurs twit the profes
sional wireless men with being behind
the times and declare that the much
talked of interference with the work
of the regulars by amateur senders is
very largely a myth They say that a
really good wireless man finds indi
viduality in a spark just as he would
in a voice and that just as a man in a
crowd where many are speaking can
distinguish and understand the words
spoken by the particular voice in
which he is interested so a good wire
less man can concentrate his attention
upon the particular message which Is
meant for his ear A good operator
say the amateurs has no difficulty in
reading through six messages
Even if this were not so say the de
fenders of amateur air line rights the
invention of the loose couples or
induction tuner enables the operator
to cut out from his receiver all but the
particular message which he wishes to
take The amateurs suggest that the
expense of installing really up to date
apparatus in the commercial stations
may have something to do with the at
There are estimated to be about 00
000 amateur wireless stations in the
United States New York has at least
1000 and the number is growing rap
idly The value of these plants ranges
from 10 to what you please and the
business of supplying materials neces
sary for their construction is a consid
erable one so that the amateurs are
being marshaled for the fight by the
interested dealers
The Air Nuisance
One of these dealers said recently
that he had begun the work of supply
ing wireless apparatus to amateurs in
1004 and that in a way he felt that he
was largely responsible for what the
regulars have termed the air nui
sance This man said that to trans
mit a wireless message sixty miles re
quires a plant costing at least 37
and that the majority of the amateurs
were content with a 10 plant which
while capable of receiving messages
sent within a radius of 200 miles can
not transmit one more than one or two
miles The ability of the amateur to
receive messages sent from long dis
tances of course makes privacy for
official messages impossible unless a
code is used The amateurs say how
ever that there have been no com
plaints on this head They say that
a majority of the complaints aside
from those which they believe are in
spired by commercial companies seek
ing a monopoly come from inefficient
commercial or government operators
One amateur who says that he knows
personally twenty five such operators
declares that not four of the men
were able to draw a diagram showing
how their instruments were connected
up The amateur says that his pro
fessional brother isnt interested in the
game and doesnt care to learn and as
a cover to his inefficiency blames all
his shortcomings on the innocent
amateur whose weak spark cannot
as a rule be heard half a mile
As a final plea to be allowed to ex-
ist the amateur associations say that
the amateur wireless plant is a One

Avoid Cheap and BlCan Baking powders
The cheap baking powders have dug
one recommendation they certainly give
of powder for hia
the purchaser plenty
money but its not all baking powder
the bulk is made up of cheap materials
that have no leavening power These
powders are so carelessly made from in
ferior materials that they will not make
light wholesomo food Further these
cheap baking powders have a very small
percentage of leavening gas therefore
it takes from U oto three times as much
of the powder to raise tho cake or biscuit
as it does of Calumet Bnking Powder
Therefore in the long run the actual
coat of the cheap powders is raor than
Calumet would be Cheap baking pow
ders leave the bread sometimes bleached
and acid somotimes jollow and alkaline
and often unpalatable They are never
of uniform strength and quality
Why not buy a perfectly wholesome
baking powder like Calumet that is at
the same time moderate in price and one
which can be relied upon Calumet is
always tho same keeps indefinitely
and gives the cook the least trouble
