Calumet, the new baking
powder, selling at a moder
ate price, could be so successful, there must be some goo' in it. So he took a hand, and
bought a can of Calumet, emptied the can containing her "favorite" baking powder and,
filled it with Calumet.
That evening, unsuspecting the trick, Wifey prepared and served som of her famous biscuit
piping hot, temptingly browned and puffed up to airy lightness, they were even more delicious
than visual. Hubby, after considerable difficulty, succeeded in convincing her that the basis
of the improvement was Calumet Baking powder. And so"an ever
lasting friend for Calumet was made.
This truthful little incident simply proves that tha honiewif Is oftirnes prejudiced
against all baking powders except the one she ha been nsing for yean. She
imagines that no other kind can possibly be as good. This is a mistaken impression.
A trial ot Calomel will prove that it is purer, more reliable; it ha a greater leavening
power than any other baking powder made. And it is moderate ia price.
