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:
68'; Per Cent Digested
Bread made with
alum powder:
673;t 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.
The local Morchiinl'R Asuoriution,
which hBH Leon inactive for over a
year, was organized HKiiin hint night.
Action wbb begun Hint Thursday look
ing toward the organization when K.
H. Moore, of Corvallis, state organizer
of the retail Merchant'8 AHxnriation,
came here ami met with the local Imni
ncaa men at thu rooms of the Commer
cial club. . Mr. Moore told the local
merchants of ttie benefits to be derived
from a well managed organization.
liy thus coming together thu mer
chants can protect themselves againt
mfn who practice purchawing goods
without any intention of pajing for
them, according to the ideas of the
utate organizer. "Vou may form a
kind of clearing house," nays Mr.
Moore, "by your organization, anil
your secretary will have the rating of
all the customers of tho local mer
chants. Your dues need not be heavy.
The sum of f0 cents per month is
enough to conduct the organization."
A number of those present had been
members of the old Hood Kiver Mer
chants' Association. 1). McDonald,
who was always an active member,
said: "Our former association was
beneficial to all of us. Even though
we may never have done antyhing else,
the fact that we got together occa
sionally and talked over matters of
mutual interest, was a great help to
those who attended the meetings.
However, 1 think the secretary ahould
collect the dues each month and pay a
call to each member. Thu interest is
thus kept alive."
Mr. Mooro suggested that the secre
tary should, instead of being one of the
local merchants, be a young attorney
of the city, who should be paid a smail
salary and a commission on the collec
tion of bad debts.
The expression of all at Thursday
night's meeting were favorable to the
reorganization of the association. A.
U. Htaten, of the Heights, adilresssed
bis fellow merchants, stating that the
Heights business men had already
formed such a league. "The benefits
of tho old club were good," said Mr.
Staten, "and 1 feel sure that those of
thu one wo will form, because of the
Rood points that are going to lie incor
porated, will be better than ever."
I). McDonald was appointed chair
man ot a committee to urge the mer
chants to attend last nielli's meeting.
He appointed to assist him in bis
work. V). A. KrHiiz, C. O. lluelat, A.

Mr. Moore, who has visited many of
the cities of the state, told of experi
ences that have been met with by the
retail merchants in various sections.
An organization, properly maintained,
he is of the firm opinion, will remedy
many of the evils that they have to
confront. He relates a story of the
experience of the merchants of The
Dalles, who were recently the victims
of a clever scheme worked by supposed
collectors. They approached the mer
chants of that city with an offer to
collect old bills. In the contract, that
they signed and left with the mer
chants, they were to bo paid nothing
urtil the money was collected. How
ever, in order to have the merchant
show gooil faith, they asked each to
giva a promissory note, the sum of
each proportionate ti the sum of the
bills that the signing merchant wished
collected. The notes were taken to
the bunks of The Dalles and discounted.
It is a law of negotiable instruments
that when a promissory note gets into
the hands of an innocent purchaser for
value, the maker of the note cannot
produce written or oral evidence to
disprove it, and the merchants were
In Kiiother city the merchant" had
dilliculty'in collecting from many of
their customers. They organized and
arranged a system, whereby six boys
about twelve years old were dressed in
Mephistoles costumes. The boys wore
horns and tails and a placard on each
announced: "1 am;the Devil." These
"devils" visited the delinipient cus
tomers. If the bill was not paid the
lirst time, they made other visits.
This plan did not take well with the
local merchants, who deemed it rather
The local merchants desire to build
up their trade to their own best ad
vantage and to the best advantage of
their bona lide customers. They .want
to get closer together, themselves, and
to come in closer touch with their
patrons. It is thought by the pronat
ors of the associaion that the organiza
tion will prove decidedly beneficial.
The most interesting matter coming
before the city council at its Monday
night meeting was the request of the
members of the Ilenedict Tennis club
that the wali recently constructed on
the Oak street side of the courts of the
lub and which encroaches on the
street, be allowed to remain until the
club secures new quarters in the coun
try, which are the present plans of the
organization. V. A. ('rain, Harry T.
Hewitt, J. H. Heilbronner and Chas.
Hull, members of tho Tennis club, were
present at the meeting. Mr. Cram
told the councilman that it was not the
purpose of the club to ask the council
men to violate their obligations, but
that the organization had hopes that
the wall, which was built for tempor
ary purposes, might be allowed to re
main until tho club might be able to
secure new quarters. I otineilmcn A.
C. Staten and J. K. Robertson ex
plained that if the council allowed the
wall to remain either by a silent ac
quiescence or by allirmative action,
they would have many other petitions
for tho same privilege.
A motion providing that the wall be
removed but that reasonable time be
given for tho work was carried.
The city received a communication
from the Ilurns Detective Agency an
nouncing that check raising artists
were reported to be working the Hood
liiver district. The agency asked that
all business men keep careful check on
their checks and checking accounts.
The lire and water committee report
ed that it would recommend that the
proposition of the Home Telephone
Company to rent a portion of its build
ing for a water office be not accepted.
'I he committee favored the present lo
cation, because of greater amount of
vault room for records. The report
was adopted.
The street committee reported that
John .oils had finished tho work of
placing concrete curbs in front of the
property of J. F. llatchelder on State
street, ami recommended that Mr. Zolls
be paid, despite the fact that Mi.
llatchelder objected. The repurt was
The city will soon'have an automatic
lire alarm system. Tho stieet commit
tee to whom was referred the petition
of the Kire Department last week,
recommended that an automatic system
lie installed at a cost of $55(1. It was
also recommended that the two small
bells now owned liy tho city and used
for tiro purposes tie sold and that a
larger bell lie purchased. The commit
tee thinks the new bell should be placed
on the brow of the hill in the vicinity
of Montello avenue, where it can be
heard by the residents of on the
Heights as well as by those down town.
The report was adopted and referred to
the tire and water committee with
power to act.
Recorder Howe was instructed to
advertise for bids on the work to be
done at the city jail. The capacity of
the prison is not sullicient to accomo
date the guests of the city and county
on occasions. When the work is com
pleted the residents of the local bastile
will not wander away from the city
without permission.
The first printing press brought to
Oregon came from the Sandwich Is
lands in 1"'"J, and was imported by Mr.
K. O. Hall, a printer, who was em
ployed by Missionary Spaulding, of
,I.apwai. That press was taken up
' there and employed for several years
in printing portions of the Rible in the
Niz I'trce and Spokane Indian tongues.
That was the first printing, and Mr.
' Hull the first printer, in the Oregon
country. The old printing press is pre
served by the Oregon Historical Soci
ety and may be seen at their emporium
in Portland.
The tirst newspaper was published in
lp;, the first paper west of the Mis
souri river. This was the "Oregon
Spectator." the first issue was on
: February 5, and was printed at Oregon
City. 'Ihe proprietor and editor was
Col. VV. (J. T'Vault, an immigrant of
1 The first number of "The Ore
' gor.ian" appeared on December 6, 1K50,
! and was edited in I'ortland by Thomas
J. Dryer.
j The first newspaper north of.the Col
umbia (then in Oregon) was printed at
' Olympia in 152. The paper was called
! "Ihe Columbian" and edited by T. T.
. MiKlruy. All these journals had a
large influence on the times ; shaping
I the political and commercial history of
i the wild territory ; and were eagerly
1 read in the homes of the pioneers.
How anxiously we looked for the com
, ingfof the "Weekly paper." It would
usually reach cur home, f0 miles away,
j four or five days after the printing, if
I the mail carrier escaped Indian hostili
i ties and did not get lost in the wild
I woods. Those pioneer journals and
' their editors hold a unique distinction.
Their names ought to be written high
on the scroll of Oregon's fame. Noth
ing influences the social, political and
financial character of a commonwealth
more than a good literary journal, and
in those relations the editor figures
most largely.
The first sermon ever preached west
of the Rocky mountains was delivered
at F t. Hall, on Snake river, July 27, .
lK:i4, by Jason Lee, missionary to the
Indian tribes. The missionary wrote
in his journal: "Repaired to the grove
about three o'clock, for public worship,
liy request of Captain McKay, a re
spectable number of people assembled,
consisting of French, half-breeds and
Indians and our white people. All
were extremely attentive. I gave a
short diseource from II Corinthians,
10:21, 'Whatsoever ye do, do all to the
glory of God.' 0, that 1 could preach
to these Indians in their own lan
guage!" Scarcely was that service over, when
a tragic scene occurred ; a remarable
contrast. Two of Captain McKay's
men engaged in a horse race. A third
ran across the track and all came to a
frightful collision. One was killed and
at noon on Monday Mr. Lee performed
the burial service. This was the lirst
funeral sermon also.
This was the initial gospel preaching. !
What a seed planting. F'rom that
"handful of corn, planted on the top of
the mountain," has grown our Chris
tian civilization, our churches, schools
and homes.
The lirst sermon preached in eastern
Oregon was in the Grande Ronde val
ley, in the summer of 18511. That ser
vice was held in my father's tent, on
Sabbath, while our tired emigrant
train was encamped a few days fur
rest. Our tent being the largest in the
train the people assembled on Sunday
and the sermon was preached by Rev.
Lallan Case. That was on the exact
site'of the present city of La Grande.
What a planting again! Here was
built the first church in all of eastern
Oregon. A Christian college grew
there und no higher order of Christian
society can be found all concomitants.

In order to determine just how badly
ho was being robbed and at the same
time show the consumer how he was
being held up, L. L. Young, a rancher
residing near Nampa, Idaho, put into
operation a unique scheme that
brought astounding result-) from the
potatoes ho raised and sold.
Young is an extensive potato raiser.
After he had harvested his Murphy
crop last fall and while sacking the
potatoes, he placed a note in the bot
tom of each sack asking the consumer
to bo kind enough to write him what
price he paid for the spuds. The po
tatoes were later sold by Mr. Young,
who received for'them 55 cents a sack,
a net profit of IIS cents a sack.
Some time later li tters began to
pour in to Mr. Young from all parts of
the United States. 'Ihe consumers had
found the notes. The several bundled
replies received stated that the con
sumers had paid prices ranging from to ?M a sack for the spuds.
Mr. Young said he expected the mid
dlemen to make a reasonable profit,
but that he, as grower, was receiving
sui'h u small fraction of the ultimate
selling price demanded of the buyer as
astounded him.
The reveltaion has spread among
Idaho growers, many of whom are con
fident now that sales direct to the con
sumers would be more prottiable all

Change in Schedule
The O.-W. R. & N. train No. 17, ti c
westbound Oregon-Washington limited,
which formerly passed through this
city at 5:45 p. m., now passes tnrough
Hood River at 4:15. The Westbound
O.-W. limited, which is equipped with
diner and observation car, is a very
popular train with people going from
here to I'ortland in the evening. The
change in schedule is welcomed by
local people; for it gives those going
down for the theatre more time in
F'ortland between the time of the ar
rival of the train and the time c.f the

Pntfesssor Harmon Gives Recital
A fair sized audience Hi, the Baptist
church Tuesday evening enjoyed the
rieitnl Kiven by Prof. A. J. Harmon
and his pupils, assisted by Dr. M. H.
Sharp, violinist, Edward Hill, reader,
and Miss Alberta, pianist. While the
crowd w;is not as large as the enterain
merit merited, it lacked nothing in ap
preciation, and all were argeed that it
was one of the most enjoyable even
ings of the kind so far offered this sea
son. Professor H.irmon has been at no
small amount of exertion in gathering
Hiid training his Mandolin club, which
is already furnishing splendid enter
tainment and gives promise of much
Komi work. One feature particularly
notn ealile and appreciated by the audi
ence was the unusually perfect time of
the players.
1 he solus and duets by the first year
pupils are deserving of an eepicial
mention, each one excelling on his or
her chosen instrument. However, the
entire program was worthy and called
forth repeated encores. Edward Hill,
the artist, whose ability as a reader is
well known, gave two readings which
were enjoyed by all, and responded to
encm e.
Professor Harmon, who is himself an
acknowledged artist, was ably assisted
I'V I'r. M. H. Sharp, who needs no in
troduction to Mood River lovers of the
violin, linth were at their best Tues
