Less Than a Cent
You may know a woman who has a repu
tation for making delicious cake, biscuits,
etc., who seems to hit it right every time.
You may also know a woman, who, no
matter how painstaking, can't seem to get the
knack of successful baking.
Both use the same butter, same eggs, same
flour and sugar. What is the difference?
Very likely it's all in the baking powder.
Undoubtedly the woman with the knack uses
Royal Baking Powder, and the unsuccessful
woman uses an alum baking powder thinking
Yet the difference in the cost of a whole
large cake is less than a cent.
It is economy to use

In most enses, however, the taxes in the end, are
paid by the general public.
It is said the Germans are building guns of 1!)
and 21 inches, and that the intention is that these
shall take the place of the siege guns now in use,
and that the latter are to be put on the battleships.
This will make the German navy formidable enough
to move it to challenge the British navy. Nothing
can resist a shell from a 16-inch gun, and when it
can be fired to reach an object 17 miles away, one
can calculate how destructive it will be. If the
German navy is supplied with these 16-inch guns,
the disparity between the British and German
navies will quite disappear. Then with a Zeppelin
aloft to prescribe the aim, one can easily antici
pate the lively times there are to be on the waters
in a few weeks. In this way, no doubt, Germany
is getting ready to invade England. As terrible as
the conflict is going to be, it is also becoming
excitingly interesting. Ashland Independent. ,

Unquestionably a coalition between Ifussia and

Whether it would go so far as to try to oust Turkey

Turkey would disintegrate without further oll'ort
