the constituents of alum remain (from alum baking powders) in
the bread, and the alum itself is reproduced to all intents and
purposes when the bread is dissolved by the gastric juice in the
process of digestion. I regard the use of alum as highly injurious."
Dr. Alonzo Clark : "A substance (alum) which can de

Prof. S. W. Johnson, Yale College: "I regard their

refined grape acid, arc promotive of health, and more efficient.
No other kind should be used in leavening food. Royal Baking

The Advantage of One Eye.
During the late Spanish-American
war a certain old colonel who had lost
an eye at the battle of Gettysburg was
rery indignant because ho was put
aside as physically incapacitated, when
he applied for admission to one of the
New York volunteer reigments.
Filled with wrath and chagrin the
colonel journeyed to Washington, bent
on having a personal interview with
the president. He succeeded in gain
ing an audience, and the president,
after listening to his plea, said, kindly:
"But, my good Col. J , you
have only one eye!"
"Just so, sir," was the prompt re
joinder, "but can't you see the great
advantage of my having only one eye?
When I aim my gun I shan't have to
close the other!"
