The tri city ladies in charge of ths
, Dr. Price's Cream Bating Powder possesses a peculiar
merit not approached by that of any other baking powder.
It produces the hot buckwheat, Indian or Whe.it cakes, hot
biscuit, doughnuts, waffles or muffins. Any of these tasteful
things may be eaten when hot with impunity by persons of
the most delicate digestive organs. Dr. Price's Cream Bak
ing Powder leavens without firmentation or decomposition.
In its preparation none but the purest of cream of tartar, so
da, etc. is tiscd, and in such exact equivalents as to always
guarantee a perfectly neutral result, thereby giving the natu
ral and sweet flavor peculiar to buckwheat and ether flour
that may be used, the natural flavor so much desired and ap
preciated by all. The oldcr.t patrons of Dr. Prices powder tell
the story, that they can never get the same results from any
other leavening agent, that their griddle cakes, biscuits, etc.
are never so light and never taste so sweet or .o good as
when raised with Dr. Prices Cream Baking Powder.

Tbe "Arkansaw Traveler," who has

around town today, got a little the bet-t
of Conductor Studyuin. of the C, B. & Q ,
on his way into the city this morning.
The company came up on tbe Beardstown

individual usually denominated in
dramatic circles as a "rube," who stared
about him in a bewildered sort of way

"Ticket, have you got a ticket? '
Course I've got a ticket."
' We'.l give it to me."
'No I wont. If you want a tLket go
ar.d buy one, I bought mine."
This was too much for the conductor,
and he pulled the bell cord and put tbe
hayseed off the train, but when he went
forward again he found him still op, and

The sympathizing friend looked and read
the following extract: "I forgot the key of

pocket of that striped tringbam dress of
mine, hanging on the inside of the hail
closet door up stairs. Please send both flat
keys, as I don't know which to use. With
the keys you can send Katie's bracelet,

the baldheaded man, putting on his hat.
"Telegraph that, you are sic k, and let her

The biildbended man shook his head
sadly, put the letter in his pocket and
walked away with the air of a martyr.

Before 1878 I was in excellent health, weigli

a bottle I began to feel like a new man. The
terrible pains to which I had been subjected,
ceased, the palpitation of the heart subsided,
my stomach became easier, nausea disap
peared, and my entire system began to
tone up. With returning
