The Xrw York Board of Health Find It Contain Alum and Kork, Declare Dunircrou ta Health and Dump It Into the Hirer. The New York papers report that the Health Department of that city has seized as dangerous to health nearly two tons of cheap mixtures sold for baking powder, and dumped them into the otlal scow to be destroyed. More of the powder was found in a Sixth ave. department store. The report of the analysis of the Health Department stated that it was ' an alum baking powder containing alum and pulverized rock. The different Health Authori ties seem to have different ways of repressing the sale of bad bak ing powders. In England they have prosecuted the grocers un der the general law and broken up the traffic. In Missouri the sale of alum baking powder is actually prohibited by law. In New York they seize the un wholesome stuff and cast it into the river, without any discussion. The latter way is certainly effec tive. The alum baking powders are usually offered at a low price, ten to twenty cents a pound, or with some prize, as a temptation to the housewife. Consumers can protect them selves by buying only high-grade baking powder of established name and reputation. Do not be tempted by the grocer to take something else as "just as good" or "our own bran'l," forthe trials show that the grocer himself is often deceived by unscrupulous makers and is selling an alum powder without knowing it. There are several good powders on the market; let the house keeper insist on having what she knows is right, and not be in duced to risk the life of the family for an imaginary saving of a few cents. Hold-Up at Fainlen. On his return home Thursday C. T. Brown related the circum stances of a hold-up at Fairview on Friday, the 11th inst. At nine o'clock in the evening of that day two masked men entered the store of Hon. F. H. Winston, ordered the proprietor at the muzzle of a revolver to hold up his hands, and proceeded to ran sack the establishment for money and other valuables. Luckily they succeeded in finding only t75. This they appropriated and about $25 worth of clothing. There is good reason to believe that the robbers thought that there was a considerable sum of money in the store. As they were about to leave they found that one of their horses had es caped and they were obliged to take possession of one in a neigh boring corral. This horse was afterwards found hobbled in the vicinity of a ranch not far away. There are circumstances tending to arouse a suspicion that the robbery was committed by parties who are not strangers in the country. The Chieftain office has just been supplied with a stock of card envelopes. the Tlitnir ti IJptnpmbr Concerning Hall to lie (Ivfn by Company II Thursday MrM.
