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 like 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 nor phosphate. ROYAL BAKING POWDER CO. New York THE DAILY PUBLIC LEDGER Published Dally Except Sunday. Fourth of July.

A REPUBLICAN COUNTRY fciven though the final accounting may show that President i1 son has been returned, the election has thoroughly demonstrated that the United States is a Republican country. In state after state that have given their electoral vote to the president practically all Uepuh lican candidates lor state offices have been chosen by imposing major ities. The "solid south" is all that has saved the Democrat ic party from dissolution long ago and had even a small part of that section voted its sentiments instead of its prejudices this year .Mr. Hughes would have been elected decisively. Thl Democrat! were never more confident of a sweeping viclorx than was the case this year and there were reasons for this optimism (leneral condition overwhelmingly favored them. Their' waa the party in power, an advantage in itsel of large proportion. With all Kurnpe engaged in the bloodiest war in history they were able to cap italize peace condition in the I'nited States. With the war prosperity at its height they could go before the country with the plausible bu lallaeious argument that such prosperity was due to Democratic poli cie. Added to these eireiimstauces was the div ision in the Ifepubli ean party four years ago. With such condition to contend again! it i remarkable that the Kepublican parly gave tin Democrat one of the most tremendous battles in American history. Kven the Democratic Nem York Times h marvelling over the great strength shown by the Republican. It says : The marvel of it is that the Republican parly has been so com plctclv reunited after tin1 disastrou division of 1!H2. The rapid ami complete healing of so dreadful a wound is without precedent in our politico. Truly may il be said that President Wilson was born under a luck) star, lie became president not because the people of the United Stales believ ed ill I )eniocral ic policies, but because the Kepublican parly was divided, lie received a smaller popular vote than any Democratic candidate in sixteen years. The first year and a half of his administration showed an unmistakable tendency toward general depression. Then came the Kuropcan war with it abnormal effect on the I'nited States. If there had been no Kuropcan war the Demo crats would have been deprived of their specious arguments in this campaign. Willi Hie IfcpUnllcaiM as aggressive as they proved to he how many electoral votes would President Wilson have received thi year had it not been for the effects of the Kuropcan war .' If President Wilson is re-elected however, he will be entitled t all the glory of success regardless of the conditions that brought I about. He will be the lirst Democrat since Adnrcw Jackson to hav been elected for two successive terms and. should he serve his full time, the first president since Grant to have occupied the exceutiv chair for eight full years. It is not surprising that Democrats, vv lm remain strictly within party lines, enthuse over President Wilson.

They do more than please your taste they satisfy!" That's why Chesterfields are like a good cup of coffee they taste fine and, in addition, they satisfy! But, besides letting you know you've been smoking, Chesterfields are MILD. tool Chesterfield is the one cigarette that can give you this new delight (satisfy, yet mild), because no cigarette maker can copy the Chesterfield blend an entirely new combination of tobaccos and the greatest advance in cigarette blending in 20 years.
