of Food
Made with different Baking Powders
From a Series of Elaborate Chemical Tests:
An equal quantity of bread (biscuit) was made
with each of three different kinds of baking powder
cream of tartar, phosphate, and alum and submitted
separately to the action of the digestive fluid, each
for the same length of time.
The relative percentage of the food digested is
shown as follows :
Bread made with
Royal Cream of Tartar Powder:
100 Per Cent Digested "1
Bread made with
phosphate powder;
68V Per Cent Digested
Bread made with
alum powder ;
674 Per Cent Digested
These tests, which are absolutely reliable and
unprejudiced, make plain a fact of great importance
to everyone : Food raised with Royal, a cream of
tartar Baking Powder, is shown to be entirely diges
tible, while the alum and phosphate powders are found
to largely retard the digestion of the food made from
Undigested food is not only wasted food, but it
is the source of very many bodily ailments.
Editor ,the News: Senator Bourne
wants to know what the people of
Oregon think about Federal aid in
the construction of roads according
to an article in the News of Feb
ruary 12. If you will accord me a
little space, I for one, will tell you
what I think about the road situation
so far as the National Government
is concerned: In the first place 1
am not In favor of the government's
going into the road building business.
It undertakes to do too many things
now that should be done by local fin
ance, too many things that are purely
state matters and altogether too many
things that are merely political agen
cies for keeping people In line with
the public aspirations of Congresmen.
In other words, th country is now
being taxed unreasonably for the sim
ple purpose of protecting the official
careers of many of our congressmen.
If any systems of doling out money by
appropriation for the purpose of pro
moting state or county or congress
ional district highways is begun, we
would get a species of graft and poli
tical robbery started which has never
been equalled in the hiBtory of our
You ask how? Are not our congress
men now scuring passeage of bills for
all sorts of local expenditure for the
Bole purpose of promoting their inter
ests with their constitutents Are
the constitutents not flooding the
malls continually with demands upon
their congressmen for assistance or
virtually its equal? Should we be so
unfortunate as to have congressional
action favoring the expenditure of
government funds on the public roads
of the country in any but a very lim
ited manner, the demand would be
out of proportion to the needs of the
country and the fate of our congress
men would still further embarrass
these officials In the performance of
their legitimate duties.

ago the one idea uppermost was to
sell a useful car. That meant a
car for country roads, that would
safely carry a reasonable load, always get there
and back, and last long enough to be very
Some of those first cars are still doing an
honest day's work every day. All of them
paid for themselves. None of them was so
efficient as the car we sell today. Now is the
time to buy an
International Commercial Car
For the merchant engaged in any business
requiring much light hauling, or prompt deliv
eries; for the business man who wishes to
extend hi3 territory; for the man who wants to
cut down delivery expenses and at the sama
time be progressive and up-to-date, an Inter
national Commercial car is a good investment.
Simple, sure, powerful, it climbs hills, goes
through mud-holes and sandy stretches, any
where a team can travel at any speed from 3
to 18 miles an hour. Transmission is simple
and direct. Brakes are powerful. Bearings
are strong. A single lever controls the car.
