Three Leading Scientists
Proclaim the Superior Value of
Dr. Price's Baking Powder.
Scientists are devoting closer attention to food product!,
e'oent examinations of baking powders by Prof. Long, Dr.
Haines, Prof- Prescott, were made to determine which
powder was the purest, highest in leavening strength, most
efficient in service, and most economical in cost. Thejr
decide that Dr. Price's Cream Baking Powder excels in all
the essentials of &n ideal preparation for household use.
"Chicago, March 8th, 1894.
We have purchased in the open market cans of Dr, Price's
Cream Baking Powder and also of the other leading brands
of baking powders, and have submitted them to chemical
analysis. We find thai Dr. Price's Cream Baking Powder is
a pure cream of tartar powder, that is has a considerably
greater leavening strength than any of the other baking
powders we have ever tested.

HOPS AND THE CHURCHES.
A Secular View of Some Recent Reso
lutions. The question of hop-raising hni been be
fore tlie various church organizations ot
the Northwest of late, witli the result that
the churches have succeeded in making
Ihemselvesexceedingly ridiculous. Recent
ly the Northwestern Baptist Association,
in session at Centralis, Wash., almost
unanimously adopted the following reso
lution : .
" Wh mums, A Inrge portion of the fertile
land of this convention field is devoted to
tlie culture of hops for brewing purposes
"W'kbbhas, A large number of tlie
members ot our churches are receiving the
greater portion of their financial incomes
from hop culture; therefore, be It
"Resolved, That it is the sense of tills
convention that the raising of hops, barley
or other cereals for brewing or distilling
purposes is an alliance with tlie saloon and
satan in his work of ruin and damnation,
with which no disciple of Christ ought in
any way to be connected."
A somewhat similar resolution was pre
sented in the Southern M. E. Conferenc. at
Oregon City two weeks ago, but the mem
bers showea some wisdom in modifying it.
and would have shown more had' they con
demned the resolution to be indefinitely
tallied. Home of the M. K. preachers
showed the ridiculousness of the resolution
by the reasonable statement that barley,
peaches, grapes, com, etc., could all be
used in the manufacture of alcoholic liauors
and asked if the church was to condemn
the raising of all these for that reason.
When finally adopted the resolution simply
declared it to be tlie policy of the church to
discourage the people from producing any
thing or doing anything that would pro
There are hundreds of grain, and fruits
that will produce alcohol, and if the church
were to put its embargo on all of them
and that would be just as reasonable as
putting it on hops the people would starve
to death; that is, if they obeyed the
churches but the people have outgrown
that, and the day has now come when that
which is unreasonable will not be accepted
even from the church, gbosedecadence will
surely be hastened by such foolish resolu
tions as that adopted by the Northwestern

whloh happeued at Albany: "A sing
ular scene took place on the south

at a station In Marion county several
days ago, A gentlemanly hop luspco
tor boarded the train, and after heii'.j
coniforti.hly seated, offered hisntllen
book to the conductor, who was ar
ranging to take off tlie mileage when
another hop man snatched the bonk
out of the conductor's hand and
claimed it as hia property. It i
peared thai both men were in tlie em
ploy of Hurst Bros., of Sacramento,
and are now drumming this state fur
hops on onmmissiou. The abstractor
of the mileage ticket evidently wus on
top, as he made use of an unusual
amount of expletives and statements
derogatory to the other man. The
name of this man was ascertained ti
be Bnttams. Ho was attired in a suit
of the regulation dude style, pants a In
Anglatian and his mustache was curled
several times. After awhile the dis
charged man paid his fare to Albany,
where both staid over night, the dis
charged man golug quietly to bed; the
dude doing the cocktail aot. J 11 Tues
day evening, wheu the South-bound
train arrived, another wordy war took
place betwe'n the two. It appeals
jealousy of position was the cause, and
a falling market had contributed to the
downfall of one of the employee.
