HOW CHEAP BAKING POWDER
A recent seizure of a lot of "oheafJ"
baking powders by the authorities of
a neighboring city has exposed the
character of the low priced biands of
baking powders which many manufac
turers are offering throughout the
country. The price of the powders first
attracted attention to them. Samples*
were taken and analyzed. The official
report of the analysis showed the stuff
to be "alum powders," composed chiefly
of alum, sulphuric acid and pulverized
rock. The powders were declared dan
gerous to health and several thousand
pounds were confiscated and destroyed.
Physicians have frequently cautioned
consumers against mixing food with
these so-called "cheap" baking powders.
They are all found, when analyzed, to
contain large percentages of alum and
sulphuric acid to which are added vari
ous sorts, of filling matter sometimes
both injurious and nasty.
The high class, cream of tartar bak
ing powders, are the most economical
and wholesome and should always be
selected for use. They will be found
cheaper in the end, besides making the
food better and more healthful.

Creamery Business Increase*.
There were thirty-three new cream
eries and ten new oheese factories es
tablished in Minnesota during the sea
son just closed, according to a compila
tion just completed by the state dairy
and food commission. The total num
ber of creameries is 714 and the num
ber of cheese factories is 85. There
were only 582 creameries in 1899.
Todd county heads the list with
new creameries, making a total of 15.
Three years ago there were only four
creameries in the county and only one
was operated the entire year. Although
Stearns county reported only one
creamery in the last year, the county
still has the largest number in the

road, where he spent a few days in the
woods. He brought back with him
two deer, which it is claimed he killed
with one shot. One of the deer is a
fine buck and the other a doe. The
deer were standing close beside each
other with the buck a little in advance
and and farthest from the hunter. Mr.
Brotherton fired and the shot hit the
doe in the neck. It passed completely

Forest Fire Checltcdt.
A bad forest fire was narrowly avert
ed at Cuba, five miles east of Cass Lake.
A train crew discovered the woods to
be on fire and the section men at Cuba
\*vre notified and sent out to fight the
flames. Later a special train was sent
from Cass Lake. The fire was gotten
under control. Had it gone on un
checked a short time longer thousands
of dollars worth of valuable timber
would have been destroyed.
Despite the best efforts of friends of
the plumbers' license law to have that
act upheld by the highest court, the
supreme court, in a decision filed, holds
that the law is unconstitutional. The
court's opinion is that the law is con
trary to the constitution because it ap
plies only to cities having 10,000 or
more inhabitants and only to those
having sewer and waterworks systems.

WORLD'S LARGEST BRICKYARD

Clay la Located at Peterbor
Peterborough, England, makes enough
brick in the course of a year to
put a girdle four times around the earth.
It is estimated that the busy brick-mak

great number around the ancient city
In the last 20 years, turn out 800,000,000
bricks annually. As the length of a
brick is about eight Inches, then, if
Peterborough's annual output were laid
out in a single line, it would stretch over
100,000 miles. The brick industry has
revolutionized the trade of Peterbor
ough. Such is the wealth of clay and
the profit to be drawn from it that one
part of the brick-making district has
been fitly named "Klondike." It lies in
beds of enormous area and depth, and
some of the experts say they could go on
