W Blend Flour Best A straight hard wheat tlour is peculiarly suited to certain uses; but the housewife finds it hard to work. •3 A straight soft wheat flour also has its good qualities. •J But the professional baker, the man who makes his living working evcrv clav with flnur ii« niUL U JLIUlV.lUlld mixture of hard and soft wheats, gives best results. CJ Aiming to produce a perfect all-purpose flour, the Fisher Flowr ing Mjlls have had the foregoing facts in mind. Kisiikr's Blend Flour is not a haphazard combination of hard and soft wheat. It is the result of careful experimentation covering a long period, 1o ascertain the proper proportions of each to get the fullest advantage of their particular qualities in the blend. The two kinds of grain are ground separately, individual milling ma chinery being required for each. Then they are combined scientifically. In this way, the full strength is saved. For household purposes, blend flour will supersede all other varie ties. when its advantages are generally known. •JJ Fisher's Blend Flour is a pleasure to knead and a joy to hake, •j, Costs More per Sack—because it's worth more. •fl Costs Less per Loaf—because it gives results.

The Ad ams letter, anion? other things, says: "That alleged strike on Tip uana river and the Ferguson let ter, telling of the riches to be found there, is a fake. There is absolutely nothing to it. "I arrived in La Paz in March, and purchasing mules there, rode to this town, Sorita, and from here with an outfit started for the Tipuana river, where the strike was supposed to have been made. Was eight days traveling over the worst trail in the world, bar none. The elevation at the summit was more than 18,000 feet, and the trail beyond would make a monkey dizzy. If a mule stumbled off the I rail you would n't even hear him drop. You couldn't even hear the echo of the bray. Nor would you see where he landed. Three Alaskans behind us lost several mules. One of them had $2,000 in American gold on his paek. They never found the mule or the money, nor could thev gel down to whev.» the mule tit..
