BAKING POWDI. Awarded Highest Hoeors World's Fair. Highest Tests U. Gov't Ohemists PRICE BAKING POWDER CO., CHICAGO. BELT MINISTER WHO BELIEVES IN SPORT Fits Up Gymnasium and Will See That Parish ioners Learn. SPECIAL TO THE INTER MOUNTAIN. Belt, April s4.-Rev. Allan Rodger of this place is an example of the muscu lar clergymen of the West who have dr ne so much to redeem the mining camps from the roughness of the early days. Rev. Mr. Rodger is an ardent lover of all kinds of athletic sports, and is not ashamed to have it known. As an athlete he takes high rank himself, and it is doubtful if there is a man in this section who would care to mix with him, in case the clergyman could be drawn into a fight. For a long time this place had an or ganization known as the Belt Athletic club, which eventually fell by the way side from one reason or another. After the club disbanded the clergy. man made up his mind to do things. A few days ago he purchased all of the fit tings of the club rooms, and had them removed to a back room of the parson age, where he fitted up a gymnasium, where he will instruct a large class in the manly art of self-defense, etc. As Mr. Rodger is known as an expert in almost every kind of game where mus cle is concerned; it is believed his gym nasium will prove a popular place.
