THE ROCK ISLAND ARGUS, WEDNESDAY JANUARY 3, 1912.
Licenced to (Wcd. Earl Jorgensen
of Clinton and Miss Algy Crone of
Commanche; Prank W. Coat of
Kane, Penn., and Miss Carrie L
Jackley of Davenport.
Quiet Day for Po)lc One of the
quietest altera atha of the advent of
the new Tear was experienced In the
police circles yesterday when there
waa not one case booked aa a remit
of the two successive holidays. The
police blotter waa clean and not
even a sick call was noted on the
ambulance book. The fact that there
were two holidays In succession
makes this fact doubly remarkable,
as it has usually been the case that
there are many cases, mostly drunks
to grind out on the day following a
holiday. The tact that there was
nothing doing this morning waa
gratifying to Chief Schramm, who
explains it by saying that the dty Is
growing better and respect for the
law Is becoming second nature.

By the use of perfect bakiing powder the housewife can
derive as much economy as from any other article used in
baking and cooking. In selecting a baking powder, there
fore, care should be exercised to purchase one that retains its
original strength and always remains the same, thus making
the food sweet and wholesome and producing sufficient leav
ening gas to make the baking light.
Very little of this leavening gas Is produced by the cheap
baking powders, making it necessary to use double the quan
tity ordinarily required to secure good results.
You cannot experiment every time you make a cake or
biscuits, or test the strength of your baking powder to And
-)ut how much of it you should use; yet with most baking
powders you should do this, for they are put together so care
essly they are never uniform, the quality and strength varying
with each can purchased.
Calumet Baking Powder Is made of chemically pure in
gredients of tested strength. Experienced chemists put it up.
The proportions of the different materials remain always the
same. Sealed in airtight cans Calumet Baking Powder does
not alter in strength and is not affected by atmospheric
In using Calumet you are bound to have uniform bread,
cake or biscuits as Calumet does not contain any cheap, use
less or adulterating ingredients so commonly used to increase
the weight. Further, it produces pure, wholesome food and
is a baking powder of rare merit; therefore is recommended
by leading physicians and chemists. It complies with all the
pure food laws, both STATE and NATIONAL. The goods are
moderate in price, and any lady purchasing Calumet from her
grocer if not satisfied with it can return it and have her
