Helpful Cake Making Hints
4- Always sift flour and Baking
^Powder at least three times. The
more sifting, the lighter the cake.
Remember thatl To cream but
ter and sugar quickly, warm the
sugar slightly. Beat yolks of eggs
'with rotary beater. Whip whites
of eggs with flat spoon whip.
Water makes lighter cakes milk
makes richer cakes.
To mix a cake, first cream but
ter and sugar thoroughly, then add
yolks, if used. Them alternately
add moisture and flour that has
been sifted with baking powder
and stir until smooth and glossy,
adding egg whites after thoroughly
Always use Baking Powder.
Biscuit Helps
Always sift flour and Baking
Powder at least three times.
Have shortening cold and firm.
Mix dough as 6oft as it can be
handled. The softer dough goes
into the oven, the lighter the
biscuit when it comes out. It is
easier for Baking Powder to
do its work in soft than in stiff
dough. Mix biscuits very little.
Do not knead. Stir up with spoon
or knife and press in shape to roll
on floored board.

sults are sure and certain. Ask

Full Registration Must be Shown for
Casting Ballots, on Suffrage
Amendment on Pri
mary Day.
Auditor's Office Is Busy Sending Out
Ballots for Various Par
ties for Amend
Registration boards will be In ses
sion today, and again on June 3 for
the purpose of resistering voters for
tbe primary special election in the
suffrage amendment. They will not
be in session tomorrow as was er
roneously stated yesterday in a para
graph clipped from a Des Moines
It will be necessary for every voter
who intends to vote on the suffrage
amendment to be registered, and for
that reason It will be well to visit th-3
registration boards and make sura
that your name Is on the books. Ac
cording to the city officials, no new
registration Is needed, but roll regis
tration must be shown.
In order that there might be no mis
takes It will be well for electors to
drop around at the various registra
tion places and see that their names
are on the lists, and that there Is no
mistake. It will take only a minute,
and will make sure that no one will
miss his vote on June 5.
The county auditor's office Is busy
with the preparation of copy for the
thousands of ballots which will be
distributed next week for the primary
election on June 5th. These will in
clude the party candidates for demo
crats, republicans, progressives, so
cialists, non-partisans and for the
suffrage amendment.
Keokuk, Hamilton, Ft. Madison, Nau
voo and Montroae Will bo
Ft. Madison Temocrat: Port Madi
son, interest among motorists seems
to Indicate, will have a trail emanat
ing from the city and ending here and
which will be sixty miles or so In
length, extending around Lake Cooper
to be called the Lake Cooper boule
vard with distinctive markings.
The colors of the trail have not
been decided upon as yet but those
most keenly interested in the mat
ter will undoubtedly take the matter
up at the meeting of the Automobile
club June 7th. At the present time
the roads around Lake Cooper are
none of them marked, the way to
Montrose and to Nauvoo have never
been marked and while local motor
ists have no difficulty in getting to
either town, still strangers touring
this territory have not the same
knowledge of the topographical lay
out of the country. A drive around
the boulevard would make an ideal
day's pleasure for the resident of
any of the towns on the road. Port
Madison, Keokuk, Nauvoo, Montrose
and Hamilton besides many smaller
communities. People from adjecent
districts would also favor the road
around the big pond and all cities on
the route would benefit materially.
The clubs of the other cities on the
trail will be asked to co-operate in the
marking of the poles enroute.
Dr. G. H. Sumner Is Asking Iowa
Senators to Support Bill
Before Congress.
Dr. G. H. Sumner, secretary of the
state board of health, yesterday wrote
to Senators A. B. Cummins and W.
S. Kenyon, urging them to support a
bill before congress to establish a na
tional hospital for lepers. He told of
an experience which ihe Iowa board
had a few years ago with a leper, who
escaped from Michigan and came to
Iowa. The secretary, in his letter,
"There should be a national lepro
sarium for the care and keeping of
the lepers. During my service as sec
retary of the Iowa board of health,
a genuine case of leprosy was al
lowed to escape from Michigan Into
the state of Iowa, and this means a
life quarantine In Iowa and the pa
tient was not a citizen of Iowa.
"The patient belonged to the state
of Michigan and I was forbidden to
return him to the state of Michigan,
and for a time it looked as if we
would have to keep him for life. But
I procured from the executive coun
cil the sum of J500 and I put the
leper In an automobile, and, having
secured permission from the United
States government to return him to
Michigan, and having permission to
cross the states of Illinois and In
diana, I stole the patient from his
quarantine in Centerville, la., and put
him across the two states into Michi
gan, thereby relieving Iowa of the
burden of keeping him for life. The
railroads would not transport him."
Presidential Phrase Making.
Unooln Journal: The president
has added to watchful waiting and
too proud to fight another phrase
likely to last awhile. Are you grow
ing or swelling?
No Credit to Sioux City.
Hinton Gazette: It is a lamentable
fact that a.bout the roughest stretch
on the Hawkeye trail, that everyone
takes to Sioux City, is between the
Woodbury county line and Sioux City.

The pre&nt outlook is for an ap

an announcement made yesterday
from the office of the government en

The bill Is now in the senate. It
carried $1,200,000 for the upper Mis
sissippi general improvement work
when it passed the house. The
senate, however, has added amend
ments which give the upper Missis
sippi an additional $300,000, making
the allotment for this section of the
stream $1,500,000.
If this amount is not changed, it
will equal the former highest annual
sum appropriated for the improve
ment of the upper MlBalsslppL It
will permit the work to be prosecuted
on as large a scale as ever before in
the history of the local "United States
engineers' office.
Hundreds of men will be employed
at various points along the river
where work will be in progress. The
government plant is all in shape for
the start of the Improvement and all
of the equipment will be placed in
use, as the work will be conducted
full blast.
Work on Lake Cooper.
There is some work in progress st
present on the river. The govern
ment is engaged in digging out the
interior of the breakwater built by
the city of Fort Madison, Iowa. It
will be converted into a harbor of
refuge. Lake Cooper, as It is com
monly termed, being backwater from
the Keokuk dam, becomes very vio
lent in storms, not only in the past
having upset smaller vessels but
having damaged heavier boats. The
harbor will give refuse in times of

being made on repairing the coffer
dams which were damaged during
the high water. The river rose to
four feet over the top of the wall dur
ing the recent swell. Only 5,000
cubic yards of material, it is thought,
will have to be replaced. When the
coffer dam Is repaired the water in
the Interior will be pumped out

There is some work above St. Paul
also. The government is making im
provements on the river between St.
Paul and lock and dam No. 1, which
will make the river navigable as far
as Minneapolis.. Minneapolis has nev
er possessed any genuine river traf
fic. Some boats have been able to
reach the city, but rarely during any
period except when the river was
high. This project may be completed
this year.
The 1e Claire and Minneapolis
projects are being cared for out of
a special fund. The Fort Madison
work is the only project tinder way
now that. is being handled through
the general appropriation, as the fund
available last year is nearing deple
Tbe Woman's Medicine Has

When Lydia E. Pinkham's remedies
were first introduced, their curative
powers were doubted and had to be
proved. But the proof came, and grad

the most beneficial effects from the use
of these medicines, their value has be

Don't Stay Gray! Here's an Old-T|m«
•Recipe That Anybody Can
Tbe tise of Sage and Sulphur for
storing faded, gray hair to its natural
color dates back to grandmother's
time. She used it to keep her hair
beautifully dark, glossy and atractivo.
I Whenever her hair took on that dull,
faded or streaked appearance, thla
simple mixture was applied with won
I derful effect
But brewing at home is mussy and
out-of-date. Nowadays, by asking al
any drug store for a 50 cent bottle of
"Wyeth's Sage and Sulphur Com
I pound," you will get this famous old
preparation, improved by the addition
of other ingredients, which can be de
I pended upon to restore natural color
and beauty to the hair.
A well-known down-town druggist
says it darkens the hair so naturally
and evenly that nobody can tell it has
been applied. You simply dampen a
sponge or soft brush with it and draw
through your hair, taking one strand
at a time. By morning the gray hair
disappears, and after another applica
tion or two, it becomes beautifully
dark and glossy.
Wyeth's Sage and Sulphur Com
pound is a delightful toilet requisite
for those who desire a more youthful
appearance. It is not intended for
the cure, mJligaUon or prevention ol
