Observing housekeepers quickly learn that Dr. Price's
Cream Baking Powder is far superior to other brands In
the fact that they never fail to mako the finest pastry, and

Cakes of various kinds from the informal Griddle
Cakes to the stately Bride Cake can be made with Price's
Cream Baking Powder, which insures light, sweet and hand
some cakes; or when used for Griddle Cake3 to be eaten hot

tender and delicious.
Dr. Price's is the only Baking Powder that contains the
white of eggs. None so pure ! None so wholesome !
