he repeated several tlmm during Iilsjslck-

verse and chorus, singing it again with his
thick tongue but a few hours before he died
when his mamma told him it would be sung

few hours before he died he reached out his

his mamma left the room to talk with tha

and looking around said In a pitiful voice.
"Thej're all gone and left" and seeing his
mother, who was on the oilier side of the

added, "but my mamma." A half hour be
fore he died he w anted to get out of bed.
His papa helped him out when his mamma
asked him ir he wanted to say his prajer.
He helped himselt on to his knees and re
peated the Lord's prav er as f ar as "Tin
Kingdom come." His papa, who was hold

throb and his head fell on the bed. He
lifted him hastily on the bed, but the king

THE MANUFACTURERS OF CLEVELAND'S SUPERIOR BAKING
POWDER HAVE FOR MANY YEARS MADE KNOWN TO THE
PUBLIC ALL THE INGREDIENTS OF THEIR POWDER.
In these suspicions times it in not enough that manufactu
rers of food preparations baso their claims for patronage on
the simple statement that their goods are " absolutely pure."
The absolute purity of a poison IntensiGes tho baneful effects
of it3 improper use. Tho absolute purity of ammonia, a drug
often used in the manufacture of baking powder and in
some of the powders most largely advertised, greatly
increases the force of the objection made by the most
eminent scientists of our day to the use of ammonia in food.
This protest of the medical and chemical professions is duo
to the fact that ammonia a product of decomposition
when taken into tho stomach with our daily meals is
Hence the public should insist upon knowing what all food
compounds coatain and ALL that they contain. Let the
edict go forth that no article intended for use in the prepa
ration of our daily bread shall receive public support unless
the manufacturers formula be published. Then shall we have
less imposition practiced upon a confiding public, and as a
result less injury to tho public health.
Cleveland's Superior Baking Powder is made only of strictly
pure Grape Cream of Tartar, Bicarbonate of Soda, and a little
wheat flour, the latter to preserve the strength of tho powder ;
nothing else whatever. CLEVELAND BROTHERS,

graceful fronds came up one bv one and

pressed specimens of rare var.eties gath

umbrellas, had a nickle plate Inserted tn j

the reqnest that the umbrella be returned,
and on the first rainy day went out on the
street and handed one to each umbrella- I

tnred within a week bnt one, and in place
or that came a note saying that it bad
been stolen and that the writer would

the umbrellas to twelve unprotected men.
He never saw bnt one of them again, and
that was brought in by a friend who
said he had stolen It at a church festival.
