Recent investigation shows that the stores are largely stocked with baking powders which contain alum, tho in jurious Ingredient which the Iowa and Minnesota State Boards of Health havo so strongly condemned. England, Ger many and France have laws prohibit ing the use of alum In bread, and the States of Minnesota and Wisconsin forbid baking powder containing alum to be put ui ou the market unless the words "this baking powder contains alum" are printed upon tho label of every package offered for sale. This is the danger signal which tho law throws out for the protection of the people. Yet many of the makers of alum baking powders such as tho "Calumet," while keeping away from Minnesota and Wisconsin, have the effrontery to offer their condemned powders to consumers here.

DOMESTIC AND FOREIGN NEWS SjmnUh Troops Hrealc Out In a Mutiny In Cuba CruUer Maria Teresa Went Aground on Cat Inland and IlrltUh Claim Her at a Derelict. . SpanUh Troop In Cuba Mutiny. Reports from Puerto Principe and Nuevitas, Cuba, say that 7,000 regular soldiers mutinied, demanding their pay before embarking Spain. About 4,000 armed soldiers presented them selves in front of tho palace, calling on the military governor, Kmilio March, for their overdue pay. Thereupon, Gen. March drew his sword and ordered them to disband. The soldiers, how ever, refused to obey, and some of them threatened the life of Gen. March, who returned his sword to its scabbard android them to kill him if that was their purpose. The soldiers then calmed down somewhat and said they only wanted their money before embarking. Gen. March promised them that they would be paid and the soldiers returned to their quarters. The cruiser Alfonso XIII, and the gun boats Condc de Venadito and Infanta Isabel have proceeded from Havana for Nuevitas to compel the soldiers to em bark, after which they will proceed to Gibara for a like purpose. i A more serious affair was that at Havana where the soldiers of the Orden Publico started a revolt because of ar rearages and for two days a serious outbreak was threatened. Gen. Blanco, however, pacified them with a portion of the money due them and promised the rest as soon as possible. Gen. Blanco then ordered all the foot and mounted regiments of the Orden Pub lico to bo disbanded. As originally planned, it was intended that the mutiny should have extended to the Gardia Civil and the artillery regulars, and it would in that event have as sumed much graver importance and might perhaps have inaugurated a reign of terror and bloodshed in the island.

Veterinary Surgeon of Itattle Creek Tell About It. How many times in life a few words of good advice, coming from a friend one can depend upon, will save us hours, perhaps months, of misery. The fol lowing which comes from Hattle Creek will interest our readers. Dr. Oliver Guiteaux, Veterinary Surgeon of that - y city, a well-known man there, as well as in Kalamazoo and Marshall, speaks of his experience with the little con queror and the result of a few timely words of advice. He says: "I was standing in Amberg & Mur phy's drug store in Rattle Creek one day when a friend of mine came in and asked for a box of kidney pills. After he had made his purchase I said quietly to him, 'You have made a mistake in buying those.' His reply was, Mlow is that?' I said 'Doan's Kidney Pills are worth all the others put together.' As he wanted my reasons for thinking so I told him that my kidnej's had both ered me for years, that I suffered from backache until I could scarcely stand it, that I had nearly every symptom to Ve found where the kidneys arc af fected, that I had used remedy after remedy including box after box of the one he just purchased, and that until I used Doan's Kidney Pills I might hav6 taken as many spoonsful of water, in fact, I think some of them hurt me. A couple of weeks after this I met him on the street, when he said: 'Doc, Doan's Kidney Pills are just as you repre sented. After using the box about which we had a conversation in Amberg &. Murphy's drug store I was as bad as ever. I then procured Doan's and stuck to their treatment until they cured me."' Doan's Kidney Pills for sale by all dealers. Price 50 cents.
