Quaker Oats is the best of all foods
St is also the cheapest When such
aacn as Prof Fisher of Yale University
and Sir James Crichton Browne
IXD FRS of London spend the
Ixst parts of their lives in studying
tic great question of the nourishing
-and strengthening qualities of different
foods it is certain that their advice is
absolutely safe to follow
Professor Fisher found in his ex
periments for testing the strength and
endurance of athletes that the meat
eaiers were exhausted long before the
sen who were fed on such food as
Quaker Oats The powers of endur
ance of the non meat eaters were
about eight times those of the meat

Western Union to Inaugurate a New
Service Known as Night Let
ters at Nominal Ilatcp
Announcement is made by the
Western Union Telegraph Company
that it will shortly be prepared to
handle long night messages at the
rates customarily charge for ten
word day messages
If appears tnat the Weste n Union
has a large unemployed milage of
wire at night which Is not earning
anything These wires must be
maintained in any event to take care
of the regular day business and it
is apparently the idea of the new
interests in the telegraph company
to let the public have the benefit of
them The announcement states
that a special Night Letter service
will be established as soon as practi
cable The charge for this service
will be the standard day rate for ten
words for the transmisison of fifty
words or less and one fifth of such
standard day rate will be charged
for each additional ten words or
To be taken at these rates Night
Letters must be written in plain
English language that is to say
code words or communications writ
ten in foreign languages will not be
accepted The messages will be tak
en at any hour up to midnight and
transmitted at the companys con
venience during the night for deliv
ery the following morning For the
present the new service is confined
to Western Union offices in the Unit
ed States The tariffs charged for
ed that the new service will 1 e large-
ed that eh new service will be large
ly availed of by business concerns
and others to quicken their corres
pondence by using the telegraph in
stead of the mails A Night Letter
sent by telegraph will reach its des-
tiantion at the opening of business
hours the following morning thus
saving as much as three or four days
when long distances are involved
IJakng Economy
By the use of perfect baking pow
der the housewife can derive as
much economy as from any other ar
ticle used in baking and cooking In
selecting a baking powder therefore
care should be exercised to purchase
one that retains its original strength
and always remains the same thus
making the food sweet and whole
some and producing sufficient leav
ening gas to make the baking light
Very little of this leavening gas
is produced by the cheap baking pow
ders making it necessary to use
double the quantity ordinarily re
quired to secure good results
You cannot experiment every time
of chemically pure ingredients of test
the strength of your baking powder
to find out how much of it you
shottld use yet with most baking
powders you should do this for they
are put together so carelessly they
are never uniform the quality and
strength varying with each can our-
Calumet Baking Powder is macre
of chemially pure ingredients of test
ed strength Experienced chemists
put it up The proportions of the
different materials remain always the
same Sealed in air tight cans Cal
umet Baking Powder does not alter
in strength and is not affected by at
mospheric changes
In using Calumet you are bound
to have uniform bread cake or bis
cuits as Calumet does not contain
any cheap useless or adulterating
ingredients so commonly used to in
crease the weight Further it pro
duces pure wholesome food and is a
baking powder of rare merit there
fore is recommended by leading
and fhemists It complies
with all pure food laws both STATE
and NATIONAL The goods are
moderate in price and any lady pur
chasing Calumet from her grocer if
not satisfied with it can return it
and have her money refunded
Alice in Wonderland
listened to the plaint of the lobster
You have baked me too brown I
must sugar mv hair without being
able to improve on the culinary fail
ure Many another Alice-in-the-Kitchen
has almost expected her fail
ures to reproach her when he her
self has come to the realization that
her own lack of foresight caused the
catastrophes in the baking
There are two essentials in the art
of baking a good oven and good
material The oven must be at right
temperature for the baking and the
material must be like Caesars wife
above reproach Nearly every
woman thinks that she is a born
cook and she surely is if she knows
enough to get the oven right and to
choose right proportions and right
ingredients for her work
The woman who aspires to be a
successful cook should be as familiar
with the best materials as a work
man is with his tools or an artist
with his colors She should know
that the absolute essential to good
baking is good baking powder Second-class
baking powder will bring
second class results First class
baking powder insures perfect bak
ing That does not mean the most
expensive for the best in the market
is Calumet which sells at a moderate
price Calumet Baking Powder re

Curious Styles of Letter -Endings
Any one in the habit of perusing old
letters Is struck with the torn i f gre
humility and deference wtilcli per
vades the correspondence of our ances
A few specimens of the style of be
ginning and ending letters may prove
interesting as in striking contrast to
the laconic yours obediently falm

It would certainly be difficult to uiatcn
the following subscription of a letter
from the Duke of Shrewsbury to Sr
Thomas Ilanmer dated September
1713 I desire that you will believer
that wherever I am I shall always
endeavor to deserve and very much
value your friendship being with a
sincere esteem sir your most fait uf in
and obedient servant Shrewsbury
Frequently one meets with bellicosb
subscriptions as in the case of tt

1101 threatened awful consequences

Arithmetic by Hand
We shall never be in danger of for
getting that our ancestors did their
sums on their fingers so long as arith
metic retains the word digits But
modern civilization knows nothing vi
the elaborate developments of thia
method It takes a Wallachian peas
ant to multiply 8 by 9 on his hands
This is how he does it The fingers of
either hand beginning with the thumb
stand for the numbers from G to 10
So the ring finger of one hand and the
middle finger of the other are stuci
out to represent 8 and 9 Counting
the fingers remaining on the side far
thest from the thumbs he finds thea
1 and 2 respectively and 1 multiplied
by 2 gives him the units of his prod
uct 2 Then he counts from tha
thumbs to the stuck out fingers inclu
sive finds them 3 and 4 adds these
and gets 7 for his tens Answer T2
All this to avoid knowing the multi
plication table beyond 4 times 4
For the Judges Information
The police court judge could not re
press a smile when his eyes rested on
a card that was lying on his desk dur
ing a session of the court On it were
printed two stanzas under the title
The Perfect Man and he could not
but look at the motley gang of pris
oners who sat before him And be
did not think the card had been drop
ped accidentally The verses read
There is a man who never drinks
Nor smokes nor chews nor swears
Who never gambles never flirts
And shuns all sinful snares
Hes paralyzed
There Is a man who never does
Anything that is not right
His wife can tell just where he is
At morning noon and night
Hes dead

Pleaded an Extenuation
An Indiana youth had called with a
cab to take the judges daughter to a
dance scarcely two blocks from hef
home The judge entered the room
where the youth was waiting Pac
ing across the room a couple of times
with his head bent and thoughts con
centrated he came short about in

The Curse
An Irish authority thus defines as
an expert the effects of a well deliv
ered curse The belief among the an
cient Irish was that a curse once pro
nounced must fall in some direction
If it has been deserved by him on
whom it is pronounced it will fall on
him sooner or later but if it has uot
then it will return upon the person
who pronounced it They compare it
to a wedge with which a woodman
cleaves timber If it has room to go
it will go and cleave the wood but if
it has not it will fly out and strike the
woodman himself who is driving it be
tween the eyes London Globe
Strict Women Who Love
The strictest women are at times the
most loving When this happens their
attachment is as strong as death their
fidelity as resisting as the diamond
They are hungry for jvotion and
athirst for sacrifice Their Jove is a
piety their tenderness a religion and
they triple the energy of love by en
shrining it as a duty Henri Frederic
The shadows of the mind are like
those of the body In the morning of
life they all lie behind us at noon we
trample them underfoot and in the
evening they stretch long broad and
deepening before us

Quick Time Music
A music teacher in Chicago was re
cently approached by a lady from the
Interior who confided to him her inten
tion of taking piano lessons and In
quired as to terms etc These proving
satisfactory she went on to explain
that she was desirous of accomplish
ing a rapid course The professor as
sured her that she might learn a great
deal in twenty lessons
Good said the woman Ive got
only a limited time in Chicago so I
must contrive to get the twenty les
sons Into that
How long are you to be here she
was asked
Three weeks
Twenty lessons In three weeks ex

Importance of a Word
If you should write a letter to the
man who is chief magistrate of this
republic you are ut liberty to address
him as The President Washington
D C That will be sufficient ne is
not his excellency as Is the supreme
executive magistrate of Massachusetts
nor his high mightiness a title
which they say sounded pleasing to
the ear of the Father of His Country
But if you should write a letter to
the secretary of state of the United
States whom the plain president
appointed to the job prepare to dip
your pen in honorific Ink While the
chief magistrate Is plain president
without any titular epaulets his secre
tary of state is the honorable secre
tary of state It will not do to ad
dress him as the secretary of state
simply He is something more than
man Couldnt I Marie turning to that The etiquette of the state de-
a friend for support 1 could takej partment requires that the word hou

Face of the Typical New Yorker
London is a friendless city enough
heaven knows to those who are not
able to conquer but she seems to me
mild benignant even In comparison
with New York The face of the Lon
doner is very often overcast with the
thought of how to get a living in the
keen competition of the people in that
mighty capital but the London face Is
tranquillity embodied in comparison
with the face of the typical New
Yorker Keen hatchet shaped anx
ious absorbed such is the face you
see everywhere around you And this
keenness of face Is accompanied by a
terrible spirit of self absorption You
seldom see people talk much while
they are traveling in the elevated rail
way or in the subway as they call the
underground train there T P OCon

Fire Prevention Among Pines
Pines protect themselves against for
est fires in a remarkable manner For
four or five years the stems of the
infant trees attain a height of only
as many inches above the soil Dur
ing this time their bark is extraordi
narily thick and that alone gives some
protection But In addition the long
needles spring up above the stem and
then bend on all sides in a green cas
cade which falls to the ground in a
circle about the seedling This green
barrier can with difficulty be made to
burn while the shade that it casts
prevents inflammable grass from grow
ing near the protected stem The offi
cers of the forestry service at Wash
ington are of opinion that it is owing
to this peculiar system of self protec
tion which the pine seedlings bave de
veloped that the growth of evergreen
oaks in Florida has been restricted in
regions where Gres have raged while
pine forests have taken their place

Decimals and Duodecimals
Herbert Spencer offered a character
istically original system of reckoning
He clung to the duodecimal system
mainly because twelve can be divided
by three and four as ten cannot But
he suggested that all the advantages
of both systems might be combined by
making twelve the basis of calculation
inventing two new digits to take the
places of ten and eleven and making
twelve times twelve the hundred
Spencer scornfully remarked that the
decimal system rests solely on the fact
that man has ten fingers and ten toes
If he had had twelve there never
would have been any difficulty

Humor and Morality
We have extirpated gross humor
from our modern literature but we
must not suppose that we are there
fore more moral than the Elizabethans
whose literature was full of gross hu

This kind of fear is destructive not only
of gross humor but of humor of all
kinds In its essence humor is brave
as it is honest but with cowardice and
dishonesty rhere come base substitutes
for it substitutes that make fun of
noble things with a humorous air and
so bring humor itself into discredit
