The difference of cost between a good
and a poor baking powder would not
amount for a family's supply to one dol
lar a year. The poor powder would
cause doctors' bills many times this.
Dr. Price's Cream Baking Powder is
the most economical in the end, because
it goes further in leavening and insures
perfect, wholesome food.
Used always in making the biscuit
and cake it saves both health and money.
Made from pure, grape cream of tartar,

SUCCESSFUL KANSAS POLITICIAN.
From the Topeka Dally Ctpltal
Of Scotch Irish extraction; born
sixty-nlno years ago on a farm in
Minml county coonty, Ohio; orihaned
at the ago of seven, and thenceforth
thrown practically on his own re
sources; moved from Ohio while yet a
boy to Illinois, where ho lived until
ho came to Kansas in 1 850, and lo
cated on the farm In the Neosho Val
ley near Humboldt, where he has since
lived; a member of tho first Free
Stato Legislature, which met in 1850;
elected again to the legislature in 1882,
and re-olected in 1884; elected to
tho State Senate in 1000; appointed
regent of the Agricultural College
1 under Morrill in 1805; and re-ap-
pointed to the same office by Governor
Stanley In 1000; a veteran of the Civil
Unr, serving in the Fourth (afterwards
IhoTonth) Kansas regiment, which he
tutored as a private, and from which
jo was mustered out three jears later
Is a captain.
( Such, in briefest possible form, is
o life record of Samuel J. Stewart,
Jio of tho Old Guard, who responded
tho fltst call for help to make Kan
.8 a free State, and who for nearly
jlf acentury how old weare getting!
has fought tho good fight and kopttho
('faith. It Is the kind of a record that so
many bravo and loyal men, whoso bouls
woro stirred by that same call, and
who made tho same answer to it, liao
wrought out hero in our bplendid west
to their own great credit uud to tho
lasting benefit of the commonwealth.
A Free State man; an old soldier; a
member of the legislature two or tlnee
or four times; graduating into the
Senate; holding some appointive olllco
or other, carrying with it a great
deal of honor and a very little salary;
that is a carter socommon in Kansas
that; it may bo almqst regarded as
typical. And yet it is by no means so
common us to be without honor. To
have achieved such a record means
that a man has so conducted
himself as to win the confidence
of his nelghbots; that ho haB been
honest and sober and of good report;
that ho has been enterprising and pub
lic spirited; that he has known how to
inakou speech not necessarily a great
speoch, but nevertheless a speech;
that ho huB been willing to fight for
what ho thought was right. When
those things have been said of a man,
pretty much everything has been said
of him that counts.
I can hardly reraembor when I ;did
did not know "Sam" Stowart, as he
has been called down in our corner of
tho state for raoro than forty yoars.
Coming into Allenjcounty onlyla year
after It was organized, a raoro boy, he

that rank now. A Republican always,
tho has been a familiar foaturo of
practloally ovory convention hold in
Allen county by that purty since 1850,
and his inlluenco has always boon
measured by very much moro than his

what ho might properly have claimed
as his right.
Politics, howover, atleast so far as it
affected his personal office seeking, has
been a mere incident with Senator
Stewart and not a main issue. (The
business of his life has been farming,
and be has mado it a good business.
Beginning with a quarter section of
Neosho bottom land, he gradually
spread his fences until they inclosed
GOO acres of soil as fair and fertilo as
Is to be found anywhere in Kansas.
As his sons have grown up, he has
deeded quarter sections of this land to
them, so that they have settled down
within sight of tho old home roof, to
work out their own fortunes as their
father woiked out his, and to bring
up their children as he reared his, in
the fear of God and in tho love of the
commonwealth which their 'fathers
have dono so much to make.
Although nearly seventy years of
age, Seiaitor Stewart is as cheery and
vigorous apparently as ho was twenty
years ago, filling with entire satisfac
tion to bis constituents tho double of
fices of state senator asd regent of the
Agricultural College, and taking tho
liveliest interest now as ho has ever
done in the political and business life
of tho state and the nation. With tho
wife of his youth still by his side; with
his seven children in happy homes about
him; with a secure competence; with
all tho honors to which his modesty
has permitted him to aspire: resting
securely on tho faith of his fathers, he
may well enjoy the present, whllo ho
contemplates tho past without i egret,
and looks into tho futmo without fear

NOW A KANSAS FIGHT
Beef Trust Combine is now
on Kansas Soil
Knnsas City, April 17 When tho
fight Is made by the United States
government on tho packers' trust hero
it will te made mostly in Kansas. In
all probability Major William Warn
er, United States district attorney
here, will havo considerable to do
with this, but in greater probability
tho fight will bo mado by the United
States district attorney for Kunsas,
who is J. S. Doan. Major Warner in
timated aa much yesterday after
noon. The major was asked when bo would
make public the letter of instructions
that he Is declared to have I received
and which ho does not deny from
Attorney General Knox.
'!! havo notadmittedrecelvingono,"
Bald tho major with a smile.
"Supposing you had, what will bo
tho method of procedure?" he was
"Well, now" was his reply, still
with his meaning smile, did it ever
occur to you that tho packing houses
are all on the other sldo of the line?
They are in Kansas, young man."
"Then will proceedings begin ovtr
there, rather than hereV"
"Probably wherever tho trust is
found to be."
Then tho major shut up like a clam
and had nothing further to say.
It Iwas asserted vesterday by ono
supposedly "in tho know" that Major
Warner had received word from At
torney General Knox, about the Pack
ers' combine; that he had replied,
calling attention to tho fact that all
the houses wereontbo other sldo of tho
line, and that he was now awaiting re
turns from this last report of his,
which would by this tlmo only havo
reached Washington. When tho at
tornoy general's department reads it,
and learns whero the packing houses
are, it Is believed, action will begin in
Kansas. This, it was stated by tho
samo authority, is tho reason Major
Warner Is so reticent; he does not
want anyone who Is deemed necessary
to an inquiry to get away. When on
alleged combine was investigated
once before, sovcral ears ago, vaca
tions in Canada were very popular
among packing hcuse heads of de
partments. As a matter of fact, however, tho
combine is an interstate affair. Tho
houses aro In Kansas, but tho com
bining Is dono on this side, in a r om
in the Armour building.
Ono of itho circumstances which
makes the existence of the beef trust
most injurious to tho fgeneral public
is the arbitrary manner in which lu
deals with its patrons, tho butchers.
Tho butchers aro offered tho alterna
tive of buying from the packers at any
prices which they may choose to offer
them or doing their own killing, for,
competition among tho packers being
absolutely throttled, the butcher can
not turn from one which handles him
roughly to another with a hope of
getting better treatment.
