Worth Careful Thought
Do you read the label to know whether
your baking powder is made from cream
of tartar or, on the other hand, from alum
or phosphate ?
Royal Baking Powder is made from
cream of tartar, derived from grapes, and
adds to the food only wholesome qualities.
Other baking powders contain alum or
phosphate, both of mineral origin, and
used as substitutes for cream of tartar
because of their cheapness.
Never sacrifice quality and healthful
ness for low price.

INJURED BY HIS BROTHER
Son of Senator. Haas Is Stricken in
The Head With Piece of Glass
and Was Dangerously Cut
Nathan Haas, the eldest son of
Senator and Mrs. Leon S. Haas, was
seriously injured by his younger
brother, Leon, on Saturday after
noon, while the three Haas boys
were playing. They began throw
ing things after one anot~her, when
Leon picked up a piece of glass,
striking his elder brother on the
head, inflicting a painful v-ound.
Nathan was rushed to the Shutes
Drug Stoi e, where he was given
first aid, after which he was con
veyed to the St. Landry Sanita

News from the sanitarium is to
the effect that the boy will be out

The accident created an excite
ment among the friends and ac
quaintances of the Haas family;
these friends will undoubtedly be
glad to hear the news which was
sent out from the sanitarium dur
ing the latter part of the week.
