yearly profits aie over a
million dollars. While, porhapH, noiio
, of the makiT of alum powders mdi
( vuhially can show so largo earnings,
! yel their profits aio onormous. J
i A htisiness m profitnlile will always
j attract to itself those whose greed will j
cause them to utterly disregard the
ellect their trallie may have upon tho
health or life of others.
Alum baking powders are intro
duced largely by gifts, prizes and lot
tery schemes. A piece of glassware or
china, a child's wagon, sled, a powter
spoon or some other article oi at
tractive appearance, but of small
intrinsic value or cost, is given with
each purchase or a number is attached
to tho can which entitles the cus
tomer to a similarly numbered article
or to a prize of some kind. It is in
some such wav as this that the trade I
in alum and atninoni.i baking powders
has now attained such
giant pro- j
portions and (heir consumption by
the public has reached an extent
which is truly alarming.
Tho highest authorities of all coun
tries condemn the use of alum in
hi oad without reserve In America
the most distinguished physicians,
chemists and hygienists have declared
that the I nil lie in alum baking powders
should bo suppressed by law. In
England anil France where tho sub
ject of pure food, and its ellect upon
the system has been more fully con
sidered and made tho subject of ox
tended experiments by the scientists,
so serious a matter is tho use of alum
in bread or other food considered to
be, that most stringent laws havo been
enacted to prevent it. These laws are
rigidly enforced, and tho sale of alum
, , . , . i i
o.iKing powuers wouiu noi uu
mitted for an hour. Any ono who'
attempted to make them for uao in
food, or attempted to uso them for
raising bread, biscuit or cako, would
stiller severe penalties.
The ill efreets upon tho system of
food raised by alum baking powders
are tho more dangerous because of
their insidious character. It would bo
less dangerous to tho eonnnunity wore
it fatal at once, for then such food
would bo avoided ; but their deleterious
action because imperceptible at first is
no less certain.
Tho puckering ellect which alum
has when taken in tho mouth is
familiar to everyone. I'hysicians say
this satiio od'ect is produced by it upon
tho delicate coats of the stomach and
intestines. What housowifo would
take homo to hor family a can of alum
or ammonia baking powder if sho
know it. Such powders net only
undermine tho system, but it is point
ed out that amiiionia taken into tho
system in infinitosimal dosos day after
day, imparts a sallow and blotched
appearance to tho complexion.
Jt is safe to discard ull baking pow
ders sold with a prize or gift.
What a misnomer aro tho words
"Absolutely Pure," aH applied to bak
ing powders. Two of tho largest sell
ing brands, ono made from alum, tho
other containing ammonia and both
oi thoso drugged baking powders, havo
stamped upon their labols and circu
lar thoso words, "Absolutely I'ure."
As h matter of fact thoy are "Absolute

Mr. Harrison is, in the language of

the matter of I'lHlOlWie, mid, being A !
very shrewd politician, II may be hi
down as certain that in the distibution
of it he will not injure the chances of
his own nomination. He has one
cabinet position certain, and possibly
two or three lo give out, two positions
on the Interstate Commerce Commis
sion, with salaries :f'S,000 equal to
members of the cabinet without the
responsibility, worry and hard work
attached to the administration of the
a Hairs of the great executive depart

Into i:i his term.
Tho re was a rumor hern this week
that representative Mills would shortly
write a letter modifying bK position
in regard to tho free coinage of silver,
but it was not generally believed.
Ono member of the house said of it:
"Take my word for it theio is nothing
m it. As you know I am not in
favor of Mills for speaker, but u have
known him for years and beliovo him
to be too honest a man lo chaugd his
views or pretend to do so in order to
curry favor with anybody or to secure
any position. lie has for years been

he would be foolish enough to swallow
his honest convictions, such a course
would kill him at home, for tho senti
ment in Texas is all for freo coinage."
Tho big lawyers who practice before
the United States Supremo Court aro
looking forward to sonio very rich
picking in the proposed suit against
the Hell Telephone company by the
Western Union Telegraph company,
for tho purpose of reopening a caso
recently decided by Judge Lowell in
the U. S. court district of Massachu
setts against the Western Union com-
pany, tho claim oeing that evidence
will bo produced to show that the
judge was by reason of relatives own
ing stock therein unduly inllueiiccd in
favor of tho Hell company. This is
not tho first tune flint, itidiinul null nr.
of the United States
government have been charged with
aiding by illegal methods the Hell
company, and now it is hoped that
tho Western Union monopoly, which
has quite as much money to spend in
finding out the truth as the Hell con
cern will spend to conceal it, will suc
ceed in letlinu it be known to tho
public, upon which both concerns
havo grown bloated by taxing tho peo
ple upon millions of watered stock.
It is not probable that one ol these
monopolies is ono whit worse than tho
other, bul it is only by their lighting
each other that the truth will over be
found out. It is but another exempli
fication of the adago: "When rogues
fall out" etc., and it will bo some satis
faction to sco tho lawyers bleed them
as they havo bled the people.
The two men upon whoso opinions
tho Chilian steamer Itata was chased
in the open sea by tho cruiser Charles
ton Secretary Tracy and Attorney
General Miller had tho satisfaction
this week, as representatives of this
government, of making an agreement
with tho representatives of tho now
Chilian government which ends that
episode without expenso to this
country, Under this agreemont tho
Itata is to bo released and tho caso
against her nolle pressed, and tho
Chilian government is to pay tho ox
ponfeo of the Charleston's long trip.

DrunkonnoB-t a Disease.
Tho now treatment for drunkenness
and tho opium Imbit, says tho Con
tralia News, for which an institute at
this placo is proposed, is a decided
innovation on tho old method of
treating these things as nothing
more or lees than moral depravity.
Thoso habits aro now described,
named and diagnosed as nothing but
diseases, and the craving for narcotics
as but their symptoms. The patient
is dosed with bi-chloridoof gold and at
tho samo time furnished with all tho
wniskoy ho wants. It is claimed that
in from three to six days all desiro or
inclination for whiskey or opium
leaves tho pationt. Tho patient is not,
liowover, deprived of his favorito drug
if ho wantH it. So far from that ho is
furnished with a bountiful supply and
loft to quit of his own accord. Tho
bi-ohlorido is said to bo just as effica
cious in tho caso of tho tobacco habit.
An old smokor and ohowor of forty
yours will commonco taking tho
remedy, and is surprised in u few days
to find himbolf forgetting to light his
pipoor whittle on his plug. Uoforo
ho knows it ho is neither chewing nor
smoking, and this without any ellbrt
at all on his part. Some f the curw
Hound liko fairy tales, and would b
