Purity in food, lower cost of living
these are the demands of the day.
Pure food is health, and health is economy itself. We can
not have health without healthful food.
The most healthful foods are the quickly raised flour foods
biscuit, cake, muffins, crusts and other pastry when perfectly
made from wholesome ingredients.
Dr. PRICE'S baking powder makes these foods in specially
attractive, appetizing and wholesome form, and for both
economic and hygienic reasons, such foods should be mor
largely substituted for meat in the daily diet.
But bear in mind that alum, or
unwholesome baking powder, can
never make pure, wholesome food.

slveu one rrom the table.
The heating was adjourned to 0 o'clock
this, morning. I'p to this time the
testimony has shown that there were
large plies of straight ballotB In the
second precinct of tho Third ward for tho
republican, democratic and progressive
patties. This was testified to by several
witnesses. At the same time the re
turns show that Pancoaat got only
eighteen votes In that precinct. N, P.
