and their consumption by tbe public
which has reached an extent which is tru
The highest authorities of all countries
condemn the use of alum in bread with
out reserve. In America the most dis
tinguished physicians, chemists and hv-
gienista have declared that the traffic In
alum baking powders should be suopres
sed by law.- In England and France
where the subject of pure food, and its
effects upon the system, has been more
fully considered and made the subject of
extended experiments by the scientisU,so
serious a matter is tbe use of alum in
bread or other food considered to be, tbat
most stringent laws have been enacted to
prevent it. These laws are rigidly en
forced, and the sale of baking powders
would not be permitted for an hour.
Any one who attempted to mike them
for nse in food, or attempted to use them
for raising bread, biscuit or cake would
suffer severe penalties.
The ill effects upon the system of food
raised by alum baking powders are tbe
more dargrous because of their insidi.

What a misnomer are the words "Ab

made from alum, tbe other containing
ammonia and bath of these drugged bak

labels and circulars these words absolute

ter him. Yesterday W. D. Petersen res
ceiyed a letter from bis brother, Msx, in
which he says that Williams has had two
offers, one of $100,000 and another of
f 200,000. This then will settle tbe mat
ter, and Williams will not be a Daven
porter. There is, however, nothing in
tbe world to prevent Davenport being
made a trainers' center for horses tbe
same as Independence. We haye all the
facilities for establishing such an institu
tion, and from the interest already exci
ted, it seems as tbough our business men
could go ahead and do something, re-
gradless or Mr. Williams. It is evidect
from the way the Williams suggestion
has been received, that our people
are just about ready for aomethiog
of that kind. Davenport Tribune.

Iowa Methodist, says editorially. "We
haye tested the merits of Ely's Cream
Balm, and believe that, by a tboroub
course of treatment, it will cure almost
every case of catarrh. Ministers, a a
class are afflicted with bead and throat
troubles, and catarrh seems more prev.

Ely's Cream Balm too highly."
