Most hpusewives assume when they buy
a big can of baking powder at a low
price that they have been economical.
They have to a slight extent but when
they use that cheap "big can" baking
powder, and find it so uneven in quality,
or so unreliable that the baking falls,
there isn't so much economy in it after
all, for the wasted materials far outweigh
the few cents in the price.
SUCCESSFUL economy is in the
reach of every woman that desires it. She
has only to order Calumet Baking Pow
der, and use it according to instructions.
Then she will achieve economy. For
not only does Calumet sell at a reason
able price 25 cents per pound but it
is so carefully made by experienced
chemists that failure is impossible. Only
the best materials are used and the pro
portions of the ingredients are so exact
and so uniform that EVERY baking
comes from the oven light, sweet and
beautifully raised. Calumet guarantees
you aginst failure, and that is what conr
stitutes seal economy in baking.
Why not use Calumet, a baking pow
der that you can always rely upon? You
can get no better at any price, for at the
World's Pure Food Exposition, Calumet
received the Highest Award.
