nominated by ftiends or some of her
relatives. Only ladies or gils are eligible

be a subscriber to the Plain Dealer in
order to become a candidate. All that
is necessary is to be nominated by
means of a nomination blank which ap
pears in each issue of the paper.
LOOK FOR IT. Anyone may nomi
nate candidates in this contest by send

"j The Difference.
What is the difference between high
grade and low grade baking powders?
All baking powders are white and are
sold in round cans with bright labels.
They look alike, but in contents they
are very different.
High grade baking powders are made
of pure cream of tartar derived from
grapes. They are healthful and eco
nomical to use.
Low-grade baking powders are made
of alum, an astringent mineral acid,
Before the Pute Food Law only "a
chemist 'could tell by analysis one from
the other.
But now baking powders have the
ingredients printed on the back of the
label. By reading the label the house
keeper knows the ingredients and be
ing careful of the welfare of her house
hold, avoids the Alum kipd of baking
powder. I
Good baking'powderisone of the
most useful things in the kitchen—and
there is a difference.

Millineru Opening
He states that the ingredients can
be obtained from any good prescrip
tion pharmacy at small, cost, and, being
of vegetable extraction, are harmless
to take.
This pleasant mixture, if taken reg
ularly for, a few days, is., said to over
come almost any case of Rheumatism.
The pain and swelling, if any, dimin
ishes with each dose, until permanent
results are obtained, and without in
juring the stomach. While there are
many so-called Rheumatism remedies,
patent medicines, etc., some of which
do give relief, few really give peama
nent results, and the above will, no
dubt, be greatly appreciated by many
sufferers here at this time.
Inquiry at the drug stores of this
neighborhood elicits the information
that these drugs are harmless and can
be bought separately, or the druggists
here will mix the prescription .for our
