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
Bread made with
684 Per Cent. DigesteTj
Bread made with
673 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.
BUD WEEVILS FOUND
TO INJURE SCIONS
That young fruit scions are receiv
ing great injury from four different
bud weevils, and that immediate pro
tective steps should be taken is the
opinion of Prig. L F. Wilson, In
charge of entomology work at the
Oregon Agricultural College.
"They sometimes appear in immense
numbers on fruit tree8 and feed on the
loliae and buds just opening," he
e'.ys. "On large trees the damage Is
slight, but very young trees suffer, ana
may lose the proper branches for torm
ing the head by having the buds eat
en by the weevils. They do consider
able damage on young scions, strip
ping them completely and causing
them to die In a short time.
"Spraying with arsenate of lead
woud undoubtedly kill them but all
the weevils respond slowly to poisons,
and the breeding grounds would fur
nish new supplies before the old dis
appeared. Hence spraying is not a
Ag the beetles have no wings un
der the w ing sheaths, they must crawl
Into the trees. If, therefore, the trees
are shaken '.n the cool of the day to
dislodge the weevils, and something
sticky is put around the tree, a large
part of th damage will be prevented.

made by the "Tanglefoot" manufac
' turers would be good.

JOHN PURROY MITCHELL
The Dalles. Or. Governor West ar
rived here Sunday with Major Smith

ami compelled Sheriff Chrisman to
Imprison 32 women who had been ar

CliriMiian refused to Imprison those

He seemed to think we kept tnem
on hand and could pass the one he
wanted right over to him. It was
the first time he had ever required
au Abstract. He had an opportu
nity to make an Investment which
gave promise of rich returns. It
was an unusual chance. He hud
no ready money so he had gone to his
bank to get it by placing a mortgage
upon his land. The bank, according
to ltg custom demanded an Abstract,
and referred him to us. Now the,
man hud lived on this land. He had
paid good money for it. He held a
Warranty Deed. He thought It was
his. It was. but there was a "Cloud

lay and may be much to lose. It
luatters not what you think about

of the Abstractor Is to give you the
record of your title.
Some; people seem afraid to en
quire into the title to their land. They

think there can be notliing the trouble
with it. When the day comes, as it
surely will, that they must have an
abstract they are disappointed that
they have to wait for the Abstractor

Besides, there are always other hurrv
orders ahead which must be finished
before new work ls begun. It Is even
more annoying to learn that the title
you thought good is imperfect. The
trouble may be slight and of a nature
which could be readily removed, but
still sufficient, to cause an exasperat
