The North Topeka bakers and proba bly those of the south side are very in dignant over an article that- recently appeared in a morning paper insinuat ing that bakers are in the habit of kneading their bread with their feet and thaVthey are not generally clean in their habits.

It is claimed that in no business can be found better and more modern ma chinery than In bakeries. The work is "What mostly done by machinery made to se cure economical -productions. Ths bakers make no complaint of -the rules adopted by the board of health although they claim that such requirements as washing hands are somewhat ridiculous inasmuch as no baker would employ a person not cleanly in his- habits. Their own protection and reputation demands this much at least. Miss Hazel Miller of West Lawn Is the guest of Mr. and Mrs. A. J.
