HEALTH is the
Most Important In buying rood-products several things are to be thought of-i. e., Economy, Results, Easy Handling, Reliability, but the most important is Health. Health means everything. In buying clothes, shoes, hats, furniture, etc., if the buyer is deceived and gets an imitation the only harm is loss of money. In buying food products, if imitations are supplied, there is not only a loss of money but perhaps an injury to health- which is beyond price. Remember these facts bwhen buying baking powder. ROYAL BAKING POWDER ABSOLUTELY PURE TO REDUCE NAVIES OF ENTIRE WORLD CONGRESSMAN ROBINSON WANTS TO EMPOWIER PRESIDENT TO OPEN NEGOTIATIONS. ALL CUT DOWN TOGETHER Think Powers Might Agree to Have Less Men and Fewer Ships and Still Maintain World's Peace. BY ASSOCIATED PRESS, Washington, Dec. iz.-Reprcsentative Gibson Robinson of Tennessee yesterday introduced a resolution looking toward the reduction of the navy, .rmament of the maratime nations of the world. It au thorizes the president to "open negotia tions with such and so many of the mara time nations of the earth as he may deem expedient for the purpose of formulating some international agreement whereby the naval armaments of such nations may be reduced to the minimum consistent with the adequate policing of its own waters and shores and the protection of its own citizens in other lands; the international suppression of piracy, privateering and let ters of marque on the high seas and, with the efficient enforcement of international obligations, and the international main tenance of peace." GREAT NORTHERN ENGINE DERAILED ON CROSSING Traffic Delayed for Some Time on South Utah Street. Street car service on Utah street was in terrupted for more than an hour last even ing by the derailing of a Great Northern locomotive directly on the crossing. The mishap occurred about 8 o'clock, the en gine running into a frog because of the accumulation of snow and ice on the track. With the 'big engine standing helpless on the road it was impossible for the street cars to move in either direction over the crossing and hundreds of townspeople, who were en route to the skating rink, were seriously incommoded for a time. All the extra cars that were available were pressed into service and by means of transfers, traffic was cotltinued in a way and those headed for the rink finally suceeded in get ting there, many of them having to walk.

Main St., Butte Largest Drug House In the State LEGISLATORSRETURN FROM HELENA The train which got in from Helena late last evening brought nearly all the members of the Silver Bow delegation back to Butte. Among them were Rep resentatives Dempster, Axtell, Lynch, L.ienemann. Shannon, Duggan, Farmer and WVhiteley. Representative MlcGin niss did not return with them. Senator Jacob Albright and Representa tive Frank B. Linderman of Madison county and Speaker White of Beaverhead also came over, and put up at the different hotels to rest tip before starting for home today. Representative Lishou of Granite also stopped over in Butte. Replrescuta tives T. C. O'Keefe, J. Morrissey, L. E. Beaudry. Fred Gagnecr and J. H. Schwcnd of Deer Lodge were among those ont the train. Representatives Beaudry, Gagner and Schwcndl kept right on to Anacouda. Most of the members of the Silver Bow delegation who returned were very tired, and for that reason they did not show up down town very early in the day. Repre sentative Dempster was one of the few exceptions to this rule. He was at his desk in the free employment office at his usual hour, looking as if nothing had hap pened to him at all, and was attending to business in the same old way. The fair trial bills do not affect his ollice, which aims to give everybody a fair trial any way. From such as could be found around town the impression was gained that the results of the extra session were satisfac tory. Even the eight members who per sisted in voting against what the people had asked the legislature to do were in clined to admit that it was all right in the sense that it was as fair for one side to a legal controversy as it was to another.

EPISCOPALIANS 00DO NOT FAVOR CHANGE VOTE IS AGAINST TAMPERING WITH THE NAME OF THE DENOMI NATION AT THIS TIME.

SERVIAN CRISIS DUE FOREIGN DIPLOMATS ARE LEAVING AND IT IS THOUGHT THERE WILL BE TROUBLE. IY A.soi'IAl T I'IHlR'sS. Vienna, Dec. i .-According to a dis patch from Belgrade, Austrian and Turkish ministers are preparing to leave the city, ostensibly for a long holiday. The Rus sian and Italian representatives have also left Belgrade on a similar pretext. The real reason for the exodus of the diplomats, however, is said to lie that King Peter has tnegatived the demailds of these miniisters .for the punishment of the as sassins of King Alexander and Queen Draga. Other reports say that the Turkish min ister at Belgrade protested to the minister of foreign affairs against the secret preparations which are alleged to be going on in Servia for the purpose of supporting an outbreak in old Servia next spring. To this protest the foreign minister gave an evasive answer, whereupon the Turkish minister left Belgrade. It is considered likely the departure of the other ministers may be based on the alleged intention of Servia to interfere in Macedonian affairs.

There is so much com mon stained wood sold under the name of ebony that people have a right to be suspicious of all called ebony. But for six years we have handled Deitsch Broth ers' ebony, and we will guarantee to say that the first brushes we sold are not worn out yet, even though they have been in daily use.
