THE ILLINOIS LEGISLATURE
Looking After the Alum and Ammonia
Unking Powder. .
htcago Inter- ce an.
A bill for an act entitled "An Act
to Regulate the Traffic in Baking
Powder," has been introduced in the
legislature at Springfield, by Mr.
Nohe. TJie bill is intended to pre
vent the adulterations of baking pow
ders with Ammonia or Alum, impos
ing proper penalties to enforce the
law, etc. This shows an earnest de
sire on the part of our representa
tives to protect the constituents.
The Chicago Tribune referring to
the question of legislation on alum
and ammonia baking powders, says:
It deals in a direct manner with an
evil that must be cut down."
"Following is a partial list of the
names of the brands sold in this state
that have been examined anil found
to contain either ammonia or alum.
Many of the alum and ammonia pow
ders are labeled and advertised as
absolutely pure to mislead the pub
lic. "Calumet," "Forest City." "Chi
cago Yeast," "(rant's Bon Bon,"
Hotel." "Taylor's One Spoon."
"Unrivaled," ".Snow Puff," "Snow
Ball," "Zipps Crystal." -Climax,"
"Monarch." "Western Prince,"
"Town Talk." "Crown." "Van
Zandt's." "Milk." -Giant."
In addition to the above lit there
is a multitude of brands sold with a
prize. It is :ife to reject all baking
powders sold with a prize, as the
tests .-how they are composed largely
of alum and cost but a few cents per
j ii ii 1 . Also refuse any baking
powder sold at '2ii cents a pound, or
less; it is sure to contain alum.
Surely nothing but their cheapness
could induce the public to experiment
with these impure powders at the
risk of health. Aside from the ques
tion of health or the wholesomeness
of these condemned powders, and
viewed from the standpoint of econ
omy alone, a pure cream of tartar
baking powder like "Dr. Price's,"
from its greater known strength and
unquestioned purity, will prove more
economical to the user in every way.
nialne's Nto (paper Work.
Concressinan Boutelle, an old and inti
mate friend of Mr. Blaine, recalls distinct
ly the late secretary's early newspaper
"As Ions ago as 1855." sa.nl he, "when
Mark H. Dunnell, recently a congressman
from Minnesota, was a niemlxT of the
Maine state senate, he had occasion to make
a speech that was fully reported iu the
state papers. Two accounts in particular,
those in the Kennebec Journal and the Au
gusta Age, plised him. L'ihiu investigat
ins to ascertain who hud written them, he
discovered that the report in The Ayx had
been prepared ly Melville W. Fuller, now
chief justice of the I'nited States supreme
court, stud that in The Journal by James
(jr. Blaine, then an active young newspaper
man. Mr. Blaine and Judjjc Fuller used
frequently to compare notes on these old
newspaper experiences and enjoyed iniiny
plea-saut chats together on the subject.
"Mr. Bluine was very fond of his news
paperwork," continued Mr. Boutelle. "An
old partner of his, Mr. John I Stevens,
who is now United States minister to Ha
waii, whs associated with hiiu in managing
the Kennebec Journal for several years.
Mr. Blaine was au editorial writer of grent
force, and I lelieve Mr. Stevens attended
to the general management of the paper.
Mr. Blaine was one of the fastest writers I
ever knew, and he would frequently choose
a subject a short time before the pajter
went to press and dash off a brilliant edi
torial in a fe-v minutes.
"Mr. Blaine was very fond of going into
newspaper offices in his earlier years, and
whenever he had anything to communicate
would usually write the matter himself. I
have often seen him sit down at a report
er's desk and examine the paraphernalia
upon it with great interest. He had an in
timate knowledge of newspaper needs and
methods and appreciated especially the
fact that Sunday night was a good time to
give out important pieces of news, owing
to the slackness of routine matters on that
day." Cor. New York World.
veafness Canrot be Cured
by local applications, as they cannot
reach the diseased portion of the ear.
There is only one way to cure deaf
ness, and that is by constitutional
remedies. Deafness is caused by an
inflamed condition of the mucous
lining of the eustachian tube. When
this tube jrets inflamed you have a
rumbling sound or imperfect hear-
iujt, and when it is entirely closed
deafness is the result, and unless the
inflammation can be taken out and
this tube restored to its normal con
dition, hearing will be destroyed for
ever; nine cases, out of ten are caused
by catarrh, which is nothing but an
inflamed condition oi the mucous
