united iu marriage to her surviving
husband in September, 1S72. Tho
fruits of their union is five children,
two boys and throe girls, one of the
latter" having by providence been
called away some four month ago, the
loss of which was a sad bereavement to
both father and mother; but with
Christian fortitude all submitted to
the will of the Divine Master. Willi
sadness, all on the Lord's day, met at
the humble home of the deceased.

As it i but a fow short year since I

her toils on earth are over, and truly
can it be said the community have

Editor Mist: Lest another may
not, I tako the liberty, with your per
mission, to reply to "Query," who pro
fesses to be seeking ligtit on the "Sub-
Troasurv Scheme," but seem to a-
auine that it would be fraudulent for
tho government to isauo such suo-
troasury paper miles It hud in it
treasury at the time, an equal value of
gold nnd silver with which to -make
such issue good. ,
I judgo that 'Ciucry" is a youngster,
for hud lie been on the stage of busi
ness action from 18(JU until some timo
after tho close of the war, I think he
would not be troubled about tho
ability or the right of the government
to bundle itself, oven though the other
fellow had cornered and possessed all
of those two high priced products of
tlu land, gold and silver. Besides, if
it would be frauduluut to issuo paper
money now when there are hundred
of million of gold and silver in the
trrasury and in circulation, what wus
it then when, practically, there was
not a dollar of cither gold or silver lo
even base the paper issue on; and tho
future existence of the government
itself was by many, thought j-roblern-ulicul.
For ns complete an answer as to
what advocates of the sub treasury
plan propose. I should refer hiin to the
secretary of the neurest farmers' ul
liance for a tract on that subject.

Alum and Ammonia In Oor Broad.
A nuisance that troubled England
fifty years ago is now rapidly spread
ing iu this country, that ia pulti'ig
alum in tho breud we eut. This ques
tion is causing a great deal of UIKOUS-
siou at the present moment, as it is
revealed that alum is being used as a
substitute for cream of tartur in bak
ing powders. A story is told that a
very largo percentage of tho baking
puwuors sold on the market contain
either alum or ammonia, and many of
them contain both these pernicious
drill's. Much timely alarm is felt nt
tho wholesale use of alum in broad,
biscuit and pastry. To young chil
dren, growing girls, persons nf weakly
frame, alum broad eaten morning
noon and evening is the most harm
ful. It is tho small quaatitics taken
at every meal that do the mischief.
Alum is cheap, costing but two or
three cents a pound while cream of
tartar costs 30c, and the high price of
cream of tartar has led cheap linking
powder to be made of alum. If the
reader wants to know something of
the corrosive qualities of alum let hi in
touch a pit'co to his tongue then re
flect bow il acts on the tender delicate
couta of tho stomach.
Following is a list compiled by the
Scientific American, of the alum and
ammonia baking powders that have
already been tested.
