True Economy The difference in cost between an alum baking powder and the highest-class cream of tartar bak ing powder would not amount for a family's supply to one dollar a year. Dr. Price's is the standard cream of tar tar baking powder. It makes the food de licious and healthful.

The Different Government* Are Con* etantly on the Verne of War with Ifettrhbortnv Powere. : world where this phenomenon of na J ture can be so regularly observed, al ' though there are many places where International storm-signals are fly ing over a large part of South Amer ica, front the isthmus of Panama to the very tip of Tierra del Fuego, says Youth's Companion. Beginning at the north, the insurrec tion in Colombia is so openly fomented by the government of Venezuela that Colombia has broken diplomatic rela tions with its unfriendly neighbor, and would probably declare war against it if its resources permitted. Moreover, Venezuela is not only occu pied with watching Colombia and with keeping an eye also on a smoldering insurrection of its own. but has also provoked trouble with Germany. President Castro is reported to hold that a revolutionary government is free from accountability for obliga tions incurred by its predecessor, lie is indisposed to settle the claims made by foreign governments. German citi zens have large claims, and the Ger man government purposes using force to compel payment. Peru and Bolivia are both nursing old grievances against their powerful neighbor, Chili, for occupying terri tory which once belonged to them. They are not strong enough to go to war on their own account, but if Chili were embroiled with another power, would ally themselves eagerly with its enemy. Their opportunity may come in a quarrel between Chili and the Argentine Republic, which, like most Smith American quarrels, turns upon a question of boundaries. It is a quarrel of long standing, which, near the end of last year, threatened war. A temporary arrangement has averted immediate hostilities, and permanent pence may follow. These disputes throw a curious light upon the proposal for compulsory arbi tration which the Pan-American con gress has been discussing. If such a system were to prevail, it might be that one-hnlf of South America would be at war much of the time compelling the other half to keep the pence. IOWA TOWN'S DAILY MIRAGE. Slagalar Illusion That la Visible in Cedar Rapide Whenever the Sua la Shlnlnn. Every day in the year when the sun is shining a mirage may be seen in. this city, says a correspondent of the Chicago Inter Ocean. So far as is known this is the only place in the it takes place under certain atmos pheric conditions. The. mirage here is on one of the principal streets of the city and makes the street appear as if there was a pond of water cov ering it. Bo natural is this appear ance that many times residents of the city who are not posted as to the mirage have turned from the street to escape going through the water that they thought they saw in the distance. The best place to view the mirage from is on First avenue, in front of Coe college, between Twelfth and Thirteenth streets. On a bright day, by looking down the avenue four or five blocks away will be seen this lake of water covering the roadway. Pass ing street cars are so plainly reflected in it that it is difficult to realize that there is no water there. Prof. Bates, of Coe college, accounts for the mirage by the fact that the avenue is slightly inclined from the indicated point of view. A person, therefore, looks down at the mirage at an angle of about 30 degrees, and his line of vision crossing the down coming rays of light obliquely at that point produces this singular Illusion.
