of Food i
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 kind . 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. "Jj
The relative percentage offthe food digested is
snown as iouows :
Bread made with
Royal Cream of Tartar Powder;
flOO Per Cent Dijeated
Bread made with

Bread made with

These tests, which are absolutely reliable and
unprejudiced, make plain a fact;bf great importance
to everyone : Food raised with Royal, a cream of

to largely retard the digestion of the food made from

There's a plump little chap you all
You have hunted for him in rain and
At breezy morn and dusky twilight
You have heard him calling, "Bob
White! Bob White!"
From the zigzag fence when the
wheat is ripe,
You hear him calling, "Bob White!
To his fair little mate and babies
Which are lolling around somewhere
He joins his family at late twilight,
And watches over them throughout
He mounts the fence at the first
blush of dawn,
And calls, "Bob White! Bob White!"
all through the morn.
In the afternoon you hear him again
Way across the field of waving grain;
It seems to be his greatest delight
To call from the fence, "Bob White!
In. the clover near are his fair little
They are racing about hunting for
They usually stay around in sight
Of where he stands and calls, "Bob
White! Bob White!"
