Is It Malaria or Alum ?
Languor, loss of appetite, indigestion and
often feverishness are the common symptoms
of a physiological condition termed " mala
ria." All these symptoms may be and fre
quently are the effect of the nse of alnm
baking powders in food making. There is
no question about the poisonous effect of
alum upon the system. It obstructs diges
tion, prostrates the nerves, coagulates and
devitalizes the blood. All this has been
made clear, thanks to physicians, boards of
Health, and food c mmissions. So " highly
injurious to the health of the community '
does the eminent head of the University of
Pennsylvania, Dr. Barker, consider the alum
baking powders, that he says " their sale
shnnld ha nrohibited bv law.'
Under these circumstances it is worth the
while of every housewife to employ tne very
little care that is necessary to keep so danger
ous an element irom me iuuu oi nor muj.
A pure cream of tartar baking powder,
which is tne only Kino mat should be used,
ought to cost about 45 to 50 cents a pound.
Therefore, if you are paying much less,
something is wrong; if you are paying 26
cents or less per pounds, the powder, is cer
tainly made from alum.
Always bear' these simple facts in mind
wnen purcnasing baking powder.

Queer Origin of sv Hotel.
They say that the beet hotel in Texas
is to be found at Belton, a town on the
Santa Fe road and is kept by "seven
sanctified sisters," as the proprietors
are popularly called. Several years ago
a woman in the place and her husband
quarreled over the best way of ex
pounding the Scriptures to a Sunday
school class and were bo stubborn that
they separated and were finally di
vorced. This family controversy was taken
up by the town, which was soon dis
tinctly divided between the adherents
of the husband and the adherents of the
wife. The result was a large crop of di
vorces, and seven hnsbandless women,
including the original cause of the com
motion, joined together and rented the
town hotel. One of them did the cook
ing, another was parlor maid, a third
made np the beds, azrd so they divided
the work among them and ran the es
tablishment on the co-operative plan.
