A MONROE CITY DEMOCRAT. Democrat Printing Co., Publishers VOL. 12 Devoted to the Interests of Marion, Miroe and Ralls Counties. Subsection, fl.eo Per Year. MONROE CITY, MISSOURI, THURSDAY, .1 UTAr 18, NO. 15 SUPPRESS ALUMNEO POOD. The doctors inform us that alum is ci poison, and that alum baking powders should be avoid ed because they mule the food unwholesome, Prominent by gienists, who have given the matter most study, regard these powders as an evil that should be suppressed by state action, .in Minnesota and Wisconsin ai um powders ara uot permitted to be sold unless they are brand :d to warn consumers of their true character, while in the Dis trict of Columbia the authorities have under the direction of Con gress, adopted regulations to prohibit the use of alum bread altogether. Are not the people of o titer States, as well US those of Miu nesota and Wisconsin, entitled to warning of a danger which is apparently menacing them at close hand, and is not the whole MONROlf HAY LOAUhK. Saturday afternoon we had the pleasure of driving over the J. M. Proctor farm south of the city and witnessed a busy i scue. It would hardly be fair to say that wo saw a test or trial f the Monroe Hay Loader, j because it worked perfectly, j It is a very simple, affair carried on two wheels ac the rear of the wagon that receives the hay. The hay itself travels up the! I schute as freely as the straw j j does up the carriage of a thresh er. The wire teeth are carried' j by an endless spocket chain j lover spocket wheels, giving It la double motion or action in raking, raking from right to left and from left to right and' at the same time gathering the grass up from the rear. There! is no grass left on the ground and the only tiling that con- j trols its capacity or amount of country entitled to absolute work is the speed of the team, protection, as the people of the Unti- tne wagon is fairly well District of Colurtldia are pro tected, by legislation which entirely prohibitive? Until we can have protection In the. form of a statute, how can our state boards of health, State analysis or food commis tsions better serve the public .ban by publishing in the news-1 papers from time to time the; names ef the. baking powders which they find to be made! from a hi my Meantime, it will aid the housewife in designating the alum powders to remember that loaded there is no perceptible jJJJ" ill powders sold at twenty-five 4l 3 on the wagou fnta ,r Inuo npp iw,. n fa e I 'draft added to the team and; I right there is a vast difference I Umna title ., ,,.1 .,11 -,tl,..,. utiw (.in kill.-, aim .ill iliil i luiiu ers. With this one the draft is no heavier on a single span of horses than it i on lour horses when drawing other loaders, j Of course all machinery wears! out and one beauty of this one is that its parts are all simple j and the only ones to give out ! will be the spocket chain and wheel and they are inexpensive. I Any boy can drive the team straight and any two men can! receive and distribute the hay RANEY & SAUNDERS HAVE MOVED. Arc have moved to our now and spacious build ing 1st. door south ot Post Office.
