of Food
Made with different Baking Powders
From a Series of Elaborate Chemical Tests:
An equal quantity of bread (biscuit) was made
with each of three different kinds of baking powder—
cream of tartar, phosphate, and alum—and submitted
separately to the action of the digestive fluid, each
for the same length of time.
The relative percentage of the food digested is
shown as follows:

A fat old genttleman was bitten
in the calf of the leg by a dog. He
at once rushed to a justice of the
peace and laid a complaint against
a man in the neighborhood whom
he supposed to be the owner of
the offending cur. The following
was the defense offered at the trial:!
1. "By testimony in favor of the
general good character of my dog
I shall prove that nothing could
make him so forgetful of his canine
dignity as to bite a calf.
2. He is blind and cannot see to
Even if he could see to bite, it
would be utterly impossible for him
to go out of his way on,vaccount of
his severe lameness.
4. Granting his eyes and legs to
be good, he has no teeth.
5. My dog is always muizzled, and
chained in the yard.
6. My dog died six weeks ago.
7. I never had a dog."

As we arp entering uponi our
Light and Power undertaking in Au
dubon County, it seems proper to
outline at this time, in a measure,
the policy we hope to pursue in the
While it is cur purpose to re
build and upbuild in the most thor
ou.gh manner, the lighting system
for Audubon, Exira, and surround
ing country, we realize, and trust
our friends and patrons will also
realize, that all features or phases
of this undertaking can not be ac
com.plished at once but it is our
aim to undertake the most essen
tial features first, and to follow as
rapidly as possible with all others
in the order of their manifest im
portance and, during this time we
would ask for the kindly forbear
ance of the people, as we feel con
fident that it will not be many
months before our progress will
prove a source of mutual satisfac
tion. -i'J" %'***$£

It is our definate plan to estab-'
lish a twenty four-hour service not
later than May 1, 1914, and earlier
if our progress in completing the I
system, together with the Exira
lines, shall warrant oing so
And, with the day service in view,
we shall rigidly abide by a straight1
meter basis as the only proper and
equitable method, which applies as
truly to electric lighting as weights
and miasure.' do in grocery and
dry goods lines. We slull, howev
er, furnish meters of the most relia
ble late type at absolute cost to our
patrons, which in the ordinary res
idence size would be about $6.90
each, and while we prefer that each
patron shall own his own meter, we'
will assume all cost of repairs or
replacement, due either to wear,!
damage by lightning, or other nat
ural causes, thus the customer
merely carries an investment of
about $7.00 which to the lighting)
company would mean thousands.
As to rates, we are not prepared
at this time to announce a defin-|
ite rate, as this will be somewhat
affected by our coal cost and plant
efficiency, but we feel safe in say
ing that the rate will not amount
to more than an average of 12 1-2
cents per thousand watts or kilo
watt hour.
Supplies and Wiring: In the mat
ter of house wiring and supplies
pertaining thereto, it is our pur
pose to furnish nil material and
labor at the lowest possible piriee
consistent with quality. We always
aim to assist our patrons in choos
ing the most economical equip
ment, while we are prepared to fur
nish very elaborate fixtures if cus
tomers so desire.
As soon as we get the machinery
now in transit set up, and in run
ning order, we will be ready to be
gin on the construction of the Ex-I
ira line, and shall be prepared to
furnish at lowestpric.es, electric flat|
irons, fan motors, sewing machine I
motors, washing machine motorsJ
and other small motors, as well as'
all other electric heating, cooking,
vaccuum cleaning devices, etc.

til Audubon, Exira and adjacent
towns and country, are supplied
with the most satisfactory electric I
service in this part of the state,
and we would ask for the kindly
co-operation and encouragement of

will work out to the mutual advan
tage and improvement of the com
The above article is printed sim
ultaneously in Audubon and Exira
papers, and for the benefit of Ex
ira people, we wish to say, that at
no time since we began to figure on
the Audubon lighting proposition
had we left Exira out of our plans,
and wish to explicitly state that
the lighting of Exira as as much a
part of our plan as the lighting of
Audubon. As stated, however, we
must first construct our central sta
tion at Audubon, before undertak
ing the line to Exira, but all our
plans in the selection of machinery
and equipment are made directly
with the view of not only lighting
Audubon but Exira, Hamlin. and
other places as well as the
surrounding country. And the
large cross compound Corliss en
gine and. direct connected dynamo
which is r.ic.w en the way from
the East is one of the finest, and
of tl: highest type that will te in
use h: this part of the state, and we
trust ti:at no one ini Exira contem
plating the wiring of his htouses or
business place, will feel any reluc
tance in having Mr. Peterson or
any others who will work for us,
