Which Do You Prefer?
It is important for reasons of health and
practical economy for every housekeeper
to ask herself this question:
"Do I prefer a pure baking powder liko
Royal, made of cream of tartar derived from
grapes, or am I willing to use a baking
powder made of alum or phosphate, both
derived from mineral sources ? "
The names of the ingredients printed
on the label show whether the kind" you
are now using or any brand, new or old,
that may be offered is a genuine cream
of tartar powder, or merely a phosphate
or alum compound.
Royal Baking Powder contains no alum

Go into a church and sit down. Stay sit until the end of the
service and keep your ears open and your mind on what the preach
er is saying. Then go home and flunk over what he had to say.
Don't give his words just a passing thought and then let your mind
slide back into the old financial groove.
Take his discourse subject by subject and .analyze it thoroughly.
Pick out the good points and study them minutely as you discover
them. You can spend several hours very pleasantly in this work,
and at tho end of that time you may be amazed at the feeling of
peace and contentment that pervades your being.
You will find that there nre many things you knew that had been
forgotten for these many years, and when they pass from memory
their value practically censes to exist.
Go to church Easter.
Set an example to tho young people of your family and of othei
people's families. Let them judge you by what you are, and not by
what other may have to say of you. Let your own actions atford
them tins opportunity for so judging.
There's a church around the corner, and the door swings outward
to every human being. The hand of welcome beckons you, and the
still voice of conscience is calling to you.
Go in, and sit down, and listen, and think, and then act.

authority In certain school affairs, Its
Jurisdiction docs not extend to detail
