for just once. Forget for a day that it is "the kind mother used."
Dispense with the idea that there is "nothing else just as good." It
may have served you admirably for years. But just remember, other
things have improved since grandmother's time. So why not baking powder?
Get from your grocer today a can of Calumet Baking Powder. Bake a batch of
biscuits, a cake or your favorite pastry. If the baking does not come out just as
good, or better, than usual. If it is not as light, sweet and de
delicious. If it does not prove up to your high standard in every
respect, providing of course you have in every other way exer
cised your usual methods, take the can of Calumet back to the
grocer and get your money. This is our first step in making
friends for Calumet. The continued good results, the purity,
the economy in both cost and use will hold them.

In a primary school examination
over which I once had the pleasure to

regard to the five senses. One of the

By the sixth sense is meant an extra

Sounder of Onsets First Played In
Polk Presidential Campaign and I
Later Through Civil War—Sanford
West Never Wounded Until Kicked
In Eye by Nebraska Mule.
A drum made sixty-six years ago out
of an ash tree at lto-kwuod, Fulton
county, X. Y., was played at the na
tional encampment of the Grand Army
of the Republic at Atlantic City. It
was made by two brothers, ten and
twelve years of age.
I The younger of the boys played the
drum through the campaign Unit clect
oi .lames K. Polk to the presidency.
Later he played it clear through the
civil war and dm mined the Thirteenth
I Illinois infantry into every engagement
in which it participated. Today lie is
an inmate of the Soldiers' home at
(frting. Wash. The drum went with
him by slow stages across the conti
nent, and it went back with him to the
I Atlantic City encampment.
The drummer. Sanford C. West, is
I now seventy-six. He is a little old
man, blind in one eye and weighing
not much more than 100 pounds, but
he puts the lire and energy of a boy
into his drumming.
He can drum standing with his back
to the drum as well as face front. He
is a born drummer, crazy for the drum
from the time he wore his first trou
sers. He drummed at public meetings
before he was eight.
One of Pioneer Family.
West comes from one of those old
American families which eternally go
west. His people arrived in New Eng
land some time in colonial days. By
1834 they had got as far as Rockwood,
N. Y., where they were pioneers.
There Sanford drummed in the Polk
campaign, curling up to sleep on the
men's coats between the speeches.
By the time Lincoln was running for
president the family had got to Illinois,
and young Sanford drummed through
that campaign too. The Thirteenth
Illinois infantry was the first that en
listed for three years. West was ncv
er out of commission one day of that
three years, nor did he miss one en
His hat was shot off his head at
Lookout Mountain, but not a hair of
his head was touched. At the first at
tack on Vickslrarg the sharpshooters
aimed at him when he was stooping
over and sent two bullets through the
wrinkles of his blouse, but didn't
scratch him.
It was his business to drum the boys
into the fight and then help carry the
wounded off the field on stretchers. At
Ringgold, Ga., they shot through the
leg the man who was handling the
stretcher with him. West carried him
off the field on his back, got another
man and went back for the fellow he
had left on the stretcher. He seemed
to bear a charmed life.
By the time the war was over Illi
nois had grown too tame and civilized
for the West blood. West moved to
Nebraska and made his home there for
the most of his life. It was while
ranching in Nebraska that he met the
wound that was due him in the war.
Wounded by Mule.
A Nebraska mule did what the Con
federate sharpshooters were never able
to do. The creature kicked him on
the head in a way to blind one eye
for life. Twenty-eight pieces of his
skull were removed from the wound,
and a permanent indentation was made
on the left side of his head.
Still he drums with the same cheer
ful vigor and seems as interested in
life as any boy. Nebraska grew too
civilized for bim eventually, 'and he
made his way gradually westward un
til he reached the Pacific. Being un
able to proceed farther he stopped, dis
concerted, and has since lingered as
near the jumping off place as he could.
Marquis Lafayette Fowler, leader of
the Washington fife and drum corps,
is the old drummer boy's side partner.
His given name betrays the Revolu
tionary atmosphere that surrounded
his cradle. He had ancestors in the
Revolution and still possesses the coat
of one of them with its bell buttons.
An uncle was in the war of 1812 and
knew sharp fighting in and around De
troit. His older brother was a flfer in
the war with Mexico, and Mr. Fowler
has his fife as well as the one which
he himself played in the civil war and
several silver fifes that have been pre
sented to him as a mark of honor.
He has played the fife for fifty-six
years. He played it to campaign meet
ings when Fremont ran for president
at Charlotte, Mich. He went to the
front with the Twentieth Michigan.
There has never been a year since the
war that he has not had charge of a
flfe and drum corps somewhere. He
declares that in an experience of fifty
years West is the best drummer he
ever knew.
8wies Adopt Watch Machinery.
American machine made watches
are competing: keenly with the Swiss
handmade article. It is believed that
Swiss manufacturers will soon turn
from the old methods and make no
watches except by machinery.

Principle Upheld by Plenty of Guests
and Employees.
The experiment of a non-tip hotel in
the Strand, in London, has proved a
success. Since the establishment was
opened a year ago there has not been
vacant bedroom, a record which
could not be equaled by any other
London hotel. Every day the manage
ment has had to refuse visitors. Al
together nearly a quarter of a million
guests have stayed at the hotel in the
844 days it has been open.
The success of the hotel, the direc
tors believe, is mainly due to the non
tip rule. Citests are forbidden to offer
any servant of tTio hotel a gratuity,
and servants found accepting them
are instantly dismissed. People know
exactly what it is going to cost them
before they set foot in the hotel, and
when they pay their bill there is no
need for them to put their bands into
their pockets to tip anybody.
Although the rule against tipping is
rigidly enforced by the management,
there have been visitors who have In
sisted upon offering gratuities. In or
der to protect the servants from temp
tation tlie management has had to re
quest these visitors either to abide by
the regulations or to seek accommoda
tion elsewhere.
The management has had no diffi
culty In securing plenty of waiters
and chambermaids despite the fact
that they receive no tips.
Frenchman's Failure Brings Good Price
After Long Litigation.
The old silk farm in Franklin coun
ty, Kan., known as the De Boissiere
Odd Fellows' home, which was the
cause of much litigation, has been
sold for $130,000.
Some forty years ago M. de Bois
siere of France went to Franklin coun
ty, Kan., with philanthropic and busi
ness intentions. He erected a silk fac
tory eighteen miles from Ottawa,
which in time came to be known as
Silkville. De Boissiere raised silk
worms on a 3,100 acre farm and man
ufactured silk and satin ribbons.
The silk Industry In Kansas was a
failure, and, becoming discouraged, De
Boissiere returned to France, aban
doning Silkville and the silk business.
He willed the property to an associate,
Mr. Sears, and on Mr. Sears' death
to his children. Finally, however, he
decided to give the Silkville farm to
the grand lodge of Odd Fellows to be
converted into a school and asylum
for the orphan children of members.
At a session of the grand lodge in
1894 the gift was repudiated, after
which James Troutman of Topeka
went to France and bought the prop
erty from the De Boissiere heirs.
When the purchase was made the
trustees of the grand lodge refused to
surrender the property. Thirteen law
suits covering a period of sixteen years
followed, and, the supreme court_of
Kansas finally
to Trout man.
One hundred dollars at 5 per cent, compound interest, will
in 40 years, amount to over $700 in 70 years, to over $3,000 in
100 years, to over $13,100, and in 200 years, to over one mil
lion, seven hundred and twenty-nine thousand, three hundred
dollars ($1,729,300).

Magdeburg, Germany, Views It as Pure
Business Proposition.
German cities are claimed to be the
best governed in the world. How far
apart are the ideas of Germans and
Americans on the subject of city gov
ernment may be seen from reading an
advertisement which lately appeared
in a number of German papers:
The place of mayor of Magdeburg
la vacant. The salary Is 21,000 marks
($5,250) a year, including the rental of
a dwelling In the city hall. Besides
his salary the incumbent will receive
4,000 marks ($1,000) for his official ex
penses. Candidates should apply be
fore Sept. 1.
Can any one imagine an American
city advertising for a mayor? The
German idea is that a municipality is
a business, to be conducted on busi
ness lines. The office of mayor is one
requiring knowledge and skill of a
technical, professional character. A
man who has proved himself a good
mayor in one German town is fre
quently invited to another.
The larger towns look to the smaller
towns to train municipal officers for
them. It frequently happens that two
cities bid in competition for a particu
larly expert man. So when their chief
burgomaster, Dr. Lentz, was appointed
Prussian minister of finance the good
people of Magdeburg gave public no
tice of their need of a capable man.

And She Had No Patience With Mod

Different persons have varying Ideas
as to what constitutes a good house
keeper. The ideas held by Mrs. Dana
Goodyear were her own and firmly
fixed. "I've got nothing to say against
those that follow after these modern
notions of cooking, like the minister's
wife," she remarked one day, "but all
I can statu is Unit her ways aren't my
ways and never would be."
"She's been to a city cooking school,
I hear," said Mrs. Goodyear's visitor,
"and does her work all the newfangled
"I presume so," and Mrs. Good
year's chin took on its firmest expres
sion. "She :s telling me yesterday
how she could do a morning's baking
bread, cake, pies—and get the regular
dinner, too, and only have three bowls
and three or four spoons to wash when
she's done aside from the dinner dish
es. She told me 'twas by cooking
school system she did it, planning and
rinsing out as she worked, and so on.
"She seemed real proud of it, but it
struck me as a pretty slack way of
doing kitchen work. There isn't a lazy
bone in my body, if I do say It, and
when I've done a Saturday's baking
I'm safe to say that there's hardly a
bowl left on my pantry shelves, and

me right in my kitchen sink where
anybody that comes in can see It"—

Whistler as a Horseman.
Boggs. a cadet cavalry officer at
West Point academy, was an assist
ant in the riding hall. On one occa
sion he overheard Whistler, who thor
oughly disliked to ride, objecting stren
uously to the horse brought for his
use. The horse, he argued, was too
heavily built and much too large for a
man of bis size. Whistler, with much
vehemence, urged the man next him
to "swap." The man with whom he
wished to exchange horses was of
muscular build and a "pretty generous
size" and his horse a lightweight an
imal, so it seemed to Whistler that it
would be a "most fitting exchange."
"Oh. don't swap! Don't you swap,
Mr. Whistler" cried the dragoon.
"Yours is a war horse, sir!"
"A war horse!" exclaimed Whistler.
"That settles it. I certainly don't want
"Yes. you do. sir." reiterated the
man. "He's war horse. I tell you, for
he'd rather die than.run.!'—Centuiy.
