Z. Xbow diagram was drawn and verified in all its details, by Prof. .Peter
Collier, who is pre-eminent as a Chemist, and Scientist. The illustration is
made in accordance with his chemical tests of each brand enumerated.
The Carbonic acid gas was calculated to get the leavening strength and -the
quantative analysis to ascertain the comparative wholesomeness, purity,
and general usefulness of the leading Powders. Th i result of Pro Collier's
examination and test, reveals the fact, that, with but one exception, every
brand tested contained either Ammonia or Alum, and a number both.
Not one woman in ten thousand would use an Ammonia or Alum Baking
Powder if she knew it Such Powders not only u idermine the health, but
ammonia imparts a sallow or blotched complexion.
NOTE. Dr. Price's Cream Baking Powder, as shown by Prof. Collier s
examinations, is the only pure Cream Tartar Powder found free from adulter
ation and the highest in strength. All authorities re sort Dr. Price's free from
Ammonia, Alum, Lime, or any other adulterant. The purity of this ideal
Powder has never been questioned. v
if Indicates the Powder containing either Amn onia or Alum.
if if Indicates the Powder containing both Amm mia and Alum.
While the diagram shows some of these Ammonia or Alum Powders
to be of higher strength than others classed below them, it must, not be taken
that they possess any value. All Ammonia or Alum powders should be
voided as dangerous, no matter how high their strength.

The great domestic dramt, "A Runa
way Wife," is to be presented at Harper's
theatre tonight. It will be the first op
portunity of seeing this successful play in
Rock Island. The drama, the joi-t work
of McKee Rackln and Fred Maeder, is
one of great merit. Tbe plot is a strong
one and is well worked out; tbe story ,1s
pathetic and entirely natural, and there is
an absence of impossibility or improbabil
ity about the various incidents which is as
welcome as it is rare. As to the actor.",
Andrew Robson. as Arthur Eisti an gives
an extremely well finished conception of
the part. Mr. Robson is an actor of high
standing and this is perhaps one of the
best pieces of work he has done. Miss
Blanche Mortimer as Lady A' ice, is ad
mirable and gives expression to the varied
emotions of the character in an artis
tic maimer worthy of praise. Hugh
Gibson furnishes tbe comedy of the play
in an acceptable manner in his humorous
portrayal of aa English swe'.l, or "duie,"
as our American friends would call him.
As Lilian Haje Miss Liura Almosnino is
charming. Mrs. Jamse H. Browne plays
Hester Eistonn cleverly, and W. F.
Granger, as Arthur Vere, is manly and
sympathetic. J. D. Manning, as Bob, is
very funny, and bis specialties are re
ceived with deserved appHuse. The
others of tbe supporting company are
uniformly good. A few words of praise
are due to "Little Lottie." a dainty little
maiden of five years of age, who delights
and astonishes tbe audience by tbe clever
way in which she sings and dances.
At the Burtis opera house, Davenport,
this evening will be presented Richarl

Many and frequent have been the com
plaints which have come to Thh Abgtjs
within the past few months of the un
satisfactory condition of tbe local tele
phone service. Believing that the ims
provements the company bas been mak
ing in its lines here putting in new
cable', etc., were accountable for the
faults, The Argcs, in the interests of
fairness, has withheld criticism. But tbe
improvements which were expected would
come with the improvement of tbe lines,
etc, have not come. Indeed, the service
seems to be becoming daily more deplor
able. It takes the patience of a Job to
get tbe attention of tbe central office and
then an age of time elapses before one is
brought into communication with the
number desired. But this is not all; tbe
sound on the wire is so incoherent that
you are lucky if you know anything
about what tbe fellow at the end has said
when you are through.
It may be because the local public bed
in years past become accustomed to so en
tirely satisfactory service, that tbe con
trast as now presented is so much more
noticeable, but the patrons of the ex
change naturally long for a return of the
old management, or as good.

Margot was a rather good looking
waitress in the little inn where Sknlkorn
was passing tbe summer. . Many a jest
had passed between them, and a hun
dred nonsensical wagers made that event
uated in nothing.
On this occasion, however, there were
a lot of his old cronies present dining
with him, and in a spirit of fun be said:
"Margot, if you let yourself be kissed
three times Til give you a thonsand
Now, as Sknlkorn was old enough to
be her grandfather, and as the only rea
son why she and her chosen sweetheart,
Pierre Bluette, were not wedded was the
want of means, after repressing the first
impulse of natural indignation she quiet
ly came over to his side with the simple
"All right, I agree."
Her ready acceptance of the proposal
was met by lond shouts of laughter on
the part of his companions, and if he
were not in earnest in the first place it
was now too late to draw back. Ac
cordingly, calling the attention of his
friends to the conditions of the bargain,
he located two hearty and artistic kisses
on the lips of the blushing maiden.
Then sittirg down with an air of con
tent he continued:
"When you give me the third, Margot,
yon shall have the thousand francs."
"I'm ready now," was her answer.
"Oh, but you see Tin not," he hastily
added, and the character of the fraud
gradually stole over the minds of all
"Then give me the thousand francs,"
"Oh, no; not till the third kisS is
Margot had more the air of being em
barrassed than she really was. "Making
suitable changes in her toilet she went
to the local court then in session. The
pretty waitress was known and respected
by all, so that she easily obtained ' a
hearing from the judge.
Her recital ended, that functionary
issued a warrant for Sknlkorn, who duly
"Tho conditions of this wager were
that if she allowed herself to be kissed
three times you were to give her a thon

Sknlkorn smilingly and confidently
admitted the truth of both propositions.
"Very good," commented the limb of
the law. "Margot, step this way."
The girl did so, and his honor, coming
down from the bench, said:
"Have you any objections to my salut
The maid returned no reply and the
judge., taking silence for consent, put
his arm about her waist and judiciously,
as was but proper under the double com
bination of circumstances, kissed her.
"And now," he announced, shaking
himself like a lion refreshed, "that is tbe
third kiss established in due legal form.
You have, Margot, in accordance with
the agreement, given three kisses; con
sequently monsieur will pay you over
the thousand francs."
It was hard perhaps, but just, and as
he laid down the cash Sknlkorn had a
powerful impression that while stolen
fruit might be the sweetest. It was doubt
ful whether it was altogether worth its
price. Philadelphia Times.
