"The capture of I.owlcx virtually
ensures possession of tho country for
SO miles to the westward of Warsaw.
"Along the whole western frontier
the Hussian medical aid worked like
clockwork. Trains, motors, , vans
carriages were plentiful every where.
A big lunatic as.vlum at Torok, In
tho zone of tho fighting near War

ment of troops was sent with orders
not to use violence. Tho doctors
contrived a long rope of tied towels,
telling tho inmates If they let go of

A Few Words in the Interest of Truth
Referring to various statements appearing in the press recently,
the Royal Baking Powder Company states:
. That it has no interest whatever in the controversy over the. use
of Albumen (sometimes called white of egg) in baking powder, and
has not had any part in the actions before officials that have taken
place in the various states;
That it believes Albumen to be entirely unnecessary and used
only for deceitful purposes;
That if Albumen was a proper ingredient of baking powder, or
performed any legitimate function, it would have adopted it many
years ago, as its cost is infinitesimal ;
That it has no interest, direct or indirect, in the K. C. Baking
Powder, the owners of which are reported to be opposed to the use
of Albumen, nor in the Calumet or Crescent baking powders, in both
of which Albumen is used; that the only baking powders in which it
has any interest in the United States are its own. well known brands,
"Royal," "Dr. Price's" and "Cleveland'sall made of Cream of Tartar.
The Company brjlieves that the question whether Albumen is a
proper ingredient for baking powder is- insignificant 'compared with
the vastly more important question as to Alum, the use of which in
baking powder has been so generally condemned. It is a noteworthy fact
that all the baking powders containing Albumen are made of Alum.
