PROTECT OUR BREAD.
The machinery of the law has not been put to work
too speedily against the fraudulent use of ammonia and
alum in Baking Powders. Both health and the pocket of
the people are demanding protection. The legislatures of
New York, Illinois and Minnesota "have taken this matter
of adulteration up, and especially that of Baking Powders.
It will be in the interest of public health when their sale
is made a misdemeanor in every State jin the UNION, and
the penalties of the law are rigidly enforced. There is no
article of human food more wickedly adulterated than that
of Baking Powder.
- Dr. Price's Cream Baking Powder is the only pure
cream of tartar powder having a general- sale that is free
from ammonia, alum or taint of any kind of impurity. It
makes the sweetest and lightest bread, biscuit and cake
'.-hat are perfectly digestible whether hot or cold. It costs
more to manufacture Dr. Price's than any other baking
powder. It is superior to every ether known and the
jtandard for forty years.
Dr. Price's Cream Baking Powder is re
ported by all authorities as free from Ammonia,
Alum, or any other adulteratt. In fact, the
purity of this ideal powder has never been ijues-.
