When our new and long-looked-for tea room spreads tucb dalaty

One loving husband says he is quite tired of enjoying his food alone,

BREAD LAW HOLDS
Philadelphia Has Not Chanted Or

BEFORE COUNCIL THURSDAY
Philadelphia has bad (he same
bread ordinance since April 1, 1797.

by the city commissioners to gather
Information on bread laws from va
Ttie rhiIaVlriil bread ordinance pro
vide that a loaf of bread shall weigh one
IMiunJ avoirdupois, and that the seller
mini maintain regulated s-sles o that
purchasers may verify the welabt of the
bread, revision la made tor a fine of
$! for violation, half of tha money to o
'.o the "Informer" and half to the com
monwealth. The clerk of the market shall
"discover and prosecute. "
At the time of the pessage of the Phil

The council. In committee of tha whole,
Monday announced the proposed new
bread ordinance would be made a special
order of business at 2 p. in. Thursday,

the bakers' association, presented a peti
tion said to contain the signatures of ,0?J
householders and taxpayers who favor
the passage of tbi proposed ordinance,
which gives the bakers the right to aeli
loaves of any weight If the weight Is Indicated.

cltiea allow bakers to offer loaves of any
weight. Some cities have no specific
laws oa this subject.

Just stop and think liow ridiculous
it is for anyone to make a statement
or claim that the so-called .Alum
Baking Powders arc in any way
injurious to health. The highest
authorities and most eminent scien
tists in the world have after careful
experiments of all kinds decided
that the so-called alum baking
powders are just as wholesome as
any other baking powders.
The Department of Agriculture,
which is the Pure Food Department
of the United States, have made
careful investigations and experi
ments, and find no reason to even
question their sale. They, too,
came to the conclusion that such
powders are just as wholesome as
other baking powders.
So-called alum baking powders are sold In
every State in the Union. If they were
not pure and wholesome, certainly the
food commissioner, would not permit their
sale. The Food Commissioner of each State
is not permitting to be sold anything that
is unwholesome. So-called alum baking
powders have been brought to their atten
tion for years, with the same results
they are pt;re snd wholesome.
It is important that everyone should know
that in the baking they do not eat baking
powder. Baking powder, during the pro
cess of baking, undergoes chemical change;
therefore, in an alum baking powder you
eat no alum, nor do you eat it any more
than the cream of tartar in a cream of tartar
baking powder; but the facts are that a
small percentage of residue is left in the
food from the use of so-called alum baking
powders, which is not injurious, and from
the use of Cream of Tartar powders, a large
percentage of residue is left in the food,
which is Rochelle Salts.
The only one that has attempted to dis
credit so-called alum baking powders or
claim that they are unwholesome is the
$30,000,000 Baking Powder TrotT that is
striving to intimidate the public so that
it can continue to get the exorbitant
prices for its goods, and divert the public
mind from the fact that its goods leave
large quantities of Rochelle Salts in the food.
Don't be misled by false, malicious, mis
leading advertisements. Remember so
called alum baking powders would not be
allowed to be sold if they were not perfectly
wholesome; also remember that 85 of the
baking powders consumed in the 'United
States axe so-called alum baking powders.
