EARL LYTTON'S BAD TASTE,
A Dinner Speech That Called Forth
Howls of Derision.
I once sat at a banquet given in
London by Wilson Barrett to Law
rence Barrett, says a writer In an
English magazine. Earl Lytton pre
sided, a curled, oiled, effeminate, su
percilious fop. He - bad a Roman
tragedy to sell to Wilson Barrett That
was why he came.
He eulogized Wilson Barrett to a
speech. "I believe," he said, "thnt

No More Cold Hands
A woman often does not notice
wLat a cold day it is so long as she
it bustHng around the bouse. But
when she tits down to her sewing and
mending, she soon feds chiDj.
It is then she needs a Perfection Smokeless Oil Heater.
Its qukk, glowing heat warms up a room in next to no time.
That die beauty of a Perfection Smokeless OS Heater. It it
always ready for use; you can carry it wherever you please; and you
fight it only when you want it

piece called (consalting bis notes) 'The
Lights of London.' I suppose it was
the work of some dramatic back."
George Sims sat facing him and never
said a word.
Then his lordship went drawling on:
T next fled on the list of Mr. Bar
rett's successes something called The
Silver King.' nere again I know
nothing of the authorship. The names
of those dramatic carpenters do not
interest me." At which Henry Arthur
Jones glared and a flash came Into
the face of poor blind Henry Herman.
"Finally." said Lord Lytton, "Mr.
Wilson Barrett has placed on his
boards what be humorously calls n
Roman tragedy. I refer to 'CUaudian,'
attributed to one W. G. Wills, of whom
I have never heard." This was too
much for the banqueters. All of them
were personally acquainted with Irv
ing'! pet poet, the uodest Wiils. So
they howled derisively.
And Earl Lytton's trsgedy, produced
a month later, was a dismal failure.

The whole thing hinffeVon the baking powder you use: So what!
the use of taking chances in baking, when with'
m r -v
WKen yourputa' baking into the oven, are
you always sure it .will come out right? Are you
sure it willbejightrand fluffy 'and tastily baked
or will it belaflatisoggytfailure?
you can always be sure that every baking will be
successful?,. Failure simply means time lost, mater
ials wasted and the whole baking to be done over
and yet you take that chance whenever you don't
use Calumet.' For Calumet alone is unfailing in
good results Calumet alone guarantees success.
Use Calumet and be sure.
Then you can bake with more certainty of good results. The
baking will be more uniformly raised lighter tastier more
wholesome, because the materials in Calumet are so perfectly
adapted to all baking requirements and then so carefully propor
tioned that failures are almost impossible.
Calumet shows a great saving in price over trust" brands and
is much more economical in use than cheap, "big-can" brands.

THE END OF TUBERCULOSIS
Early Cases of Consumption.
By ALBERT H. GARVIN.
Tuberculosis occurs, unfortu
nately, at the time of life when
most people have assumed their
life responsibilities. The pro
gressive case In whom there Is
neither a personal fanlt nor a
fault in the environment that
can be discovered, who becomes
accidentally overwhelmingly in
fected, represents a loss of life
that Is due only to Infection by
the bacillus and a loss which
need not have occurred If it is
really possible to cause this germ
disease to disappear. We know
that we can alter this situation
according to onr knowledge of
the disease and Its nature, snd
we can correspondingly promise
a hopeful outlook provided we
can obtain the patient in the
early stages of his Infection.
Remove any personal bias that
objects to the acceptance of the
necessary discipline called the
simple life and remove responsi
bilities that tne patient is ena
ble to cope with, and he will
usually get well.
