The Tower Process Used Only For the
The tower process of making shot
was Invented by William Watts,
plumber of Bristol, England, In 176a
His tower was "built" by sawing
square hole In the center of the various
floors of his bouse and locating a well
In the cellar. Into which the globules
of molten lead dropped and were In
stantly cooled and gardened. Warts
secured a patent In 1782 and sold his
London rights In 1800 for 43,665.
His tower Is still In use, although It
has been heightened by the addition of
several stories. The lead when molten
is poured into a sieve-like receptacle
at the top of the tower, and these
molten drops, falling Into the well,
120 feet below, form the shot, which
are then passed through a polishing
grader. They are then spilled from a
hopper on to an Inclined plane, the per
fect shot running on a second plane,
while the Imperfect drop through aa
opening between. The shot pass over
four series of planes, and only the per
fect reach the last plane. '
A larger size than BBB cannot be
made by this process. The larger
sizes, Including shrapnel, are made by
two different processes. In the me
dium size a wire of the proper ma
terial Is fed Into a. machine which
mashes it Into a ribbon shape and
punches irregular formed shot The
largest are made by pouring the metal
Into long bullet molds, which, In cool
ing, form Irregular shot. The various
sizes are then placed, each by Itself,
In gins, which are revolved for six
hours, when the shot come out perfect

WHEN HER BACK ACHES
A Woman Finds All Her Energy and
Ambition Slipping Away.
Rock Island women know how the
aches and paina that come when the
kidneys fall make life a burden.
Backache, hip pains, headache, dizzy
spells, distressing urinary troubles,
all tell of sick kidneys and warn you
of the stealthy approach of dropsy
or Bright'a disease. Doan's Kidney
Pills are for the kidneys only. They
attack kidney diseases by striking
at the cause. Here's proof of it in
a Rock Island woman's words:
Mrs. K. Peterson, 1206 Third
avenue, Rock Island, 111., says: "I
blleve that hard work and overexer
tion weakened my kidneys. I suf
fered from severe pains across the
small of my back and on this account
it waa difficult for me to stoop or
lift When I arose In the morning
I was very stiff and lame and my
back was weak. I had often, read
about Doan's Kidney Pills in the lo
cal papers and a short time ago I
got a box at the Harper house phar
macy. They brought prompt relief,
in fact, I did not think any medicine
could act so quickly. The contents
of one box of Doan's Kidney Pills
drove all symptoms of kidney com
plaint from my system and benefit
ed me In every way."

a day of smiles, when you use
Calumet. A day of smiles for you
and for the rest of the family, too.
You'll be delighted because Calumet is so
unfailing in its results. You'll not have one
baking ruined not one batch of materials
wasted but every baking will come fronV
the oven fluffy and tasty and evenly raised.'
And then the best test of all watch the smiles
when your Calumet bakings go on the table.'
The whole family will appreciate the difference
that Calumet makes the fluffier, daintier bis
