than Mr. Korn. Wis article in the Chi
cago trade publication s review of the
baking business is as follows:
Editor Bakers' Helper, Chicago:
My experience a & baker started dur
ing the Civil war, when I was station

Baking company, at the request of Fifty years ago nearly all bread was
the Bakers Helper, trade publication 1 baked on the hearth or bottom and
of Chicago, has written an interesting i was called ' Bottom Bread;" even to
story of some of his experiences as; day the ame term Is used. We had
a baaer at the time of the Civil war! a many shapes and stvles of bottom
and after, beginning at Fortress Mon-1 bread in the olden dav. as the modern
roe. Incidentally his article shows, by I bakers have of nan bread
and we had to 'guess at It. "Who ever
thought of the steel roller flour, the
dough mixer, the divider, the round
er, automatic proofing closets and the
many modern devices now made to
make easier and better quality bread?
e had no more thought of such
things than we had of electric lights,
telephones, automobiles or typewrit
ers. I remember the first dough dividers
which were made in the Vnited
States; they were made for William
Schmidt of Chicago and I bought the
second one made. They were similar
to our present bun dividers, but on a
larger scale. My first dough mixer
was made ty Roth & McMahon, Chi
cago. It was a two-barrel size and
was turned by hand. A large fly
wheel made it turn a bit easier, but
the work was as hard as -making
dough by hand; I had the satisfaction,
however, of eeetng a better dough
made In a more sanitary condition.
When I first started in business I
made crackers ty hand and they were
baked in the old style oven. A broad
peel was (used for putting in and tak
ing out, and it took some quick work
to get all out and baked even. A fore
man received from 94 to $6 a week
and board and helpers 93 to 94, plus
board. Compare these wages with
those of today; what a change! Most
of the bread waa eold over the count
er; the consumer brought a basket
and carried 1t home. Some bread was
delivered by the baker carrying a Bas
ketful on his head or shoulders. Later
on the more prosperous baker had a
horse and wagon. The top was re
moved Bunday, old Dobin was
hitched up and then the family had
an outing. The grocer did not think
of selling bread. The baker's wife
looked after the store, made the paper
bags and raised a family of children,
and good healthv mp at that,
The price of flour fluctuated all the
time. I remember in ,1866 flour cost
from 912 to 914 the barrel; In 1868 to
1870 from 98 to 910; then later it went
as low as 93.50. Eggs could be bought
at 6 and S cents the dozen; butter 8
to 10 cents the pound. There was no
limit to the working hours. I had to
work 14 to 16 hours a day. Store was
kept open until 11 o'clock evenings
and all day Sunday.
What a wonderful change has taken
place In piy days! I have marked the
progress made, and tried to keep pace
Japanese "Silent" Music.
A curious ceremony used to be per
formed in Japan by the court musi
cians at certain Shinto festivals. Both
stringed and wind Instruments were
used, but it was held that no sound
should be allowed to fall upon un
worthy ears. and. as some of the ears
present might be unworthy, all the
motions of playing were gone through
by the musicians, but not a single
sound was heard. This strange cus
torn dated back many generations.

IMPORTANT LETTER TO ALL
"I suffered from indigestion for a
long time. Last May I almost died.
The doctor told me it was acute indi
gestion and I could not be cured. Since
that time I have suffered very much,
as some days everything I ate. even
light food, as soft boiled eggs, would
distress me. I lost 15 pounds. Some
times I felt that I could not live an
other day. A month ago I got a box
of Miona tablets. Before I had used
them a week I was better. I have used
two boxes and I feel as well as ever I

called Irish bread. This bread was '

housewives made up their doughs at j
home and brought them to th baker '
to be baked. j
As a leaven we used the eour dough i
ferment and tstock yeast. The fer-1
ment was made from flour and po
tatoes, and the stock from malt and
hops. There were concerns which
sold ferments and sioik yeast to the

nothing but 'inside ovens." which
were heated with cord wood. The
fuel was placed inside the oven, and
smoke and heat paesed out of the flue
at the rear. A few bakers had ovens ;
with furnaces or fireplaces at the side.
This style oven is atill in use in the
far west where pine slabs and "rat
tlings" are cheap. About the first
continuous baking oven on the market
in the middle west was the Peterson

FORECAST FOR ROCK ISLAND, DAVENPORT. MOLES E AND VICTNITY.
Generally fair tonight and Tuesday, warmer tonight.
The area of low pressure that was
central Saturday over the upper Mis
sissippi valley Is disappearing beyond
New England and has caused precipi
tation since yesterday morning in the
eastern portion of the lake region and
on the Atlantic coast. Areas of low
pressure are also central over Nevada
and eastern Saskatchewan and light
rain is reported from the north Pacific
and west gulf sections and New Mex
ico, with higher temperatures In the
Missouri and upper Mississippi valleys.
The northwestern high has advanced
to the central valleys and clear skies
are general over the territory from the
eastern Rocky mountain slope to the
Atlantic coast and north of the Gulf of
Mexico, while the accompanying sharp
fall in temperature has extended to the
Atlantic sections. Because of this dis
tribution of air pressure, generally fair
weather is indicated for this vicinity
tonight and Tuesday, with warmer to
