PROTECT OUR BREAD.
The machinery of the law has not been put to work
too speedily against the fraudulent ttse of ammonia and
alum in Bating Powders. Both health and the pocket of
the people are demanding protection. The legislatures of
New York, Illinois and Minnesota have taken this matter
of adulteration up, and especially that of Baking Powders.
It will be in the interest of public health when their sale
is made a misdemeanor in every State in the UNION, and
the penalties of the law are rigidly enforced. There is no
article of human food more wickedly adulterated than that
of Baking Powder.
Dr. Price's Cream Baking Povder is the only pure
cream of tartar powder having a general sale that is free
from ammonia, alum or taint of any kind of impurity. It
makes the sweetest and lightest bread, biscuit and cake
that are perfectly digestible whether hot or cold. It costs
more to manufacture Dr. Price's th.n any other baking
powder. It is superior to every other known and the
standard for forty years.
Dr. Price's Cream Baking Powder is re
ported by all authorities as free from Ammonia,
Alum, or any other adulterant. Jn fact, the
purity of this ideal powder has never been ques-

The fact that surveyors are quietly

in Tee Argcs, and that their decision
stands between it and . the already ap
proved south shore line. Let us hope
as locg as there has been so much delay
that the engineers will see the wisdom of
favoring the new survey.

the authorities of that republic A dis
patch received from tbe City of Mexico
states that President Diaz is greatly dis
turbed over the turbulent state of affairs,
and that he called his political counsel

ing the fact that there has been in every
part of Mexico for several years past a
smoldering feeling against the Diaz ad
ministration and the revolutionary feel
has hevn augmented by the recent result
Been at Work for Months.
It bas been the purpose of President
Diaz and his political aids to carefully
conceal this feeling from foreign nations,
owing to the fact that such knowledge
would cause a withdrawal of English and
American capital from the republic and
bring injury to business interests. Tbe
present bold invasion under the leader
ship of Catarino Garcia and General Ruiz
Sandoval was not made without fore
thought and preparation. These two men
have been working for months arran ging
