A fifth co-heir is Kev. v. eu- beiK ot Minneapolis. These five are nephews and nieces of Charles Hedberg, a New York bridge car penter, who met his death by failing from brldae at Yonkers. It was suppoeeo. ojr his fellow workmen that Hedberg left noth ing but ,a reputation for making speeches on slight provocation, but his effects re vealed title deeds to a great deal of real estate, worth, at a conservative estimate. 1500,000. The property includes a large farm near Lakeland In Florida, four building lots in Elmsbord, Westchester county. New York, and extenaive tracts of school land In Texas. Besides thfd, according to the New York t?un. he had a "great deal of money in the bank. Hedberg came as an orphan to this coun try and had little communication with his relatives, who knew, nevertheless, that ne was in America. That he left so much property was as much a surprise to them aa to anyone else. Hedberg lived quite simply almost miserly. In fact and aside from his propensity to make speecnes, which gained him the tltlejof "The Orator," was in no wise distinguished from fellow bridge workers. The fall which killed him waa only twenty-five feet but he fractured three ribs in the region ot the heart, and broke 4 leg so badly that It had to be Imme diately removed at the knee. Attorney Alvln F. Johnson represents the heira and will soon leave for New York to prove up on the estate In behalf ot his llenta whose claims are undisputed.

Wouldn't think of try ing anything else, be cause mother always u! ed it," or some similar excuse. Hubby said shewas prejudiced. He figured if 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. Your Grocer n s n 6 4 a ?
