Latest And Most Improved
Methods Of Road Buildings
I heartily endorse the Good Roads
Meeting to be held at Hopkinsville on
the lilth and 20th of February, and
urge the people of the surrounding
counties to make a special effort to at
tend. This meeting will furnish an excel

to gather Information as to the latest
and most approved method of road
building and to exchange ideas with
the practical road builders of their
neighboring counties. It will be both
interesting and inspiring, und the en
thusiasm that can be gathered from the
people of Christian county will do much
toward creating a better seitiment for
good roads throughout the western
portion of the State.
I, therefore, request the county offi
cials and public spirited citizens of tbe
counties of Western Kentucky to en
deavor to attend. R. C, Terrell,

Made with different Baking Powders
From a Series of Elaborate Chemical Tests :
An equal quantity of bread (biscuit) was made
with each of three different kinds of baking powder
cream of tartar, phosphate, and alum and submitted
separately to the action of the- digestive fluid, each
for the same length of time.
The relative percentage of the food digested is
shown as follows:
Bread made with
Royal Cream of Tartar Powder:
I 100 Per Cent.
Bread made with
68lh Per Cent.
Bread made with
67 Per Cent. Digested
These tests, which are absolutely reliable and
unprejudiced, make plain a fact of great importance
to everyone : Food raised with Royal, a cream of
tartar Baking Powder, is shown to be entirely diges
tible, while the alum and phosphate powders are found
to largely retard the digestion of the food made from
Undigested food is not only wasted food, but it
is the source of very many bodily ailments.
