Legal and Illegal
The Royal Baking Powder is a pure,
grape cream of tartar powder. Its greater
healthfulness and absolute superiority over
other powders are shown by the United
States Government official tests, and are
so universally recognized that its use is
approved and encouraged by health officers
at home and abroad.
Guard your food against tho
alum backing powders.
Alum baking powders are considered so injurious to health, and
their promiscuous sale a source of such danger, that their use is univer
ally condemned by physicians and health officers. In many States the
law requires that they shall be branded to warn consumers that they
contain alum.
In the District of Columbia, under the laws of Congress, the use
of alum in bread, biscuit, cake and other food is a misdemeanor.
Alum baking powders may be known by their price. Powders
sold from ten to twenty-five cents a pound, or twenty-five ounces for
twenty-five cents, are not made of cream of tartar.

"The Confession ef a Wife" at tho
A play In which the wife bends her ef
fort to concealment rather than confes
sion and whose story would have been
easily told nd as easily forgiven were It
not to th purpose of the plot that It b
complicated with the designs of a number
of person more or les collaterally Inter
ested, was presented to a falr-slxed house
t the Krug last night. The best thing that
can be said for "The Confessions of a
Wife" is that It Is lavishly and In some re
spect beautifully mounted. The setting of
the first scene la very pretty and the elec
trlo effects, simulating a waterfall In th
background and sunset, are very Natural
and artistic. Other scenes are garnished
with equal realism. The story of the play
I a rather trite one, with the customary
meoldratnatlo episodes and the company
having It In charge Is no better than It
might b. 'The Confessions ot a Wife"
will be the attraction until after Saturday
night, with a matinee on Saturday.

It la not the plan of natnre that women

Thousands of American women, hovr

Vegetable Compound, as it is the moet
thorough female regulator known to
medical science. It cures the condition
which causes so much discomfort and
robs menstruation of its terrors.
Miss Irene Crosby, of 113 Charlton
Street East Savannah, Oa., writes:
" Lydla E. Pinkham's Vegetable Compound
Is a true friend to woman. It has been of
great benefit to me, curing me of irregular
and painful menstruation when everything
else bad failed, and I gladly reoomniejtd it to
other suffering women."
Women who are troubled with pain
ful or irregular menstruation, back
