Lottery and 1’rlze Schemes used to sell
Almn an<l Ammonia Baking Powders.
A New Y’ork concern, manufacturers
of an ammonia baking powder, boasts
that its yearly profits are over a million
dollars. While, perhaps, none of the
makers of alum powders individually
can show so large earnings yet their
profits are enormous.
A business so profitable will always
attract to itself those whose greed will
cause them to utterly disregard the
effect their traffic may have upon the
health or life of others.
Alum baking powders are introduced
largely by gifts, prizes and lottery
schemes. A piece of glassware or china,
a child's wagon, sled, a pewter spoon or
some other article of attractive appear
ance, but of small intrinsic value or
cost is given with each purchase or a

entitles the customer to a similarly
numbered article or to a prize of some
kind. It is in some such way as this

consumption by the public which has
reached an extent which is truly alarm
The highest authorities of all coun
tries condemn the use of alum in bread
without reserve. In America the most
distinguished physicians, chemists and
hygienistshave declared that the traffic
in alum baking powders should be sup
pressed by law. In England and
France, where the subject of pure food
and its effect upon the system has lieen
more fully considered and made the
subject of extended experiments by the
scientists, so serious a matter is the use
of alum in bread or ether food consid
ered to be, that most stringent laws
have been enacted to prevent it. These
laws are rigidly enforced, and the sale
of alum baking powders would not be
permitted for an hour. Any one who
attempted to make for use in food, or
attempted to use them for raising bread,
biscuit or cake would suffer severe pen
The ill effects upon the system of food

What housewife would take home to
her family a can of alum or ammonia

powders not only undermine the sys

It is safe to discard all baking pow

What a misnomer are the words “Ab
solutely Pure,” as applied to baking
powders two of the largest selling
brands one made from alum, the other
containing ammonia, and both of these
drugged baking powders have stamped
upon their labels and circulars these
words absolutely pure; as a matter of
fact they are "absolutely poor,” as
shown by official examinations.

Ccllier, who is pre-eminent as a Chemist, and Scientist. The illustration u

The Carlxmic acid gas was calculated to get the leavening strength and
the qualitative analysis to ascertain the comparative wliolesomcness, purity,

examination and test, reveals the fact, that, with but one exception, every
brand tested contained either Ammonia or Alum, and a liumlier lioth.
Not one woman in ten thousand would use an Ammonia or Alum Baking
Powder if she knew it. Such Powders not only undermine the health, but
ammonia imparts a sallow or blotched complexion.

examinations, is the only pure Cream Tartar Powder found free from adulter

Ammonia, Alum, Lime, or any other adulterant. The purity of this ideal

While the diagram shows some of these Ammonia or Alum Powders

avoided as dangerous, no matter how high their strength.
Noble Don’t Smoke.
A few days ago Secretary Noble got
so angry because a visitor appeared in
his private room holding a lighted ci
gar that he threatened to have him
ejected by the colored Department
messenger. The Secretary’s antipathy
to tobacco is unconquerable ami has
possessed him since he was a very
small boy. An old friend tells this story
of his dislike for the weed.
“Johnny Noble was a boy of ten
when his father kept tlie old Dcniison
hotel in Cincinnati. The Dennison
was noted for its hot buckwheat cakes,
and little John’s chief duty was to trot
between the kitchen stove and the din
ing tallies with smoking pyramids of
flapjacks. He was known as Jack, the
cake-boy. Another duty was to can-
for the big living room, where the river
men to the numlier of twenty or thirty
would gather in the long winter even
ings, smoking the strongest Kentucky
tobacco. The smoke always made lit
tle Jack very sick, hut he stuck to his
work like a Trojan. He made a very
solemn vow, however,that when he got
to lie a man nobody should smoke in
any living room he could control. It
is said the Secretary once discharged a
clerk for presenting a fellow employe
with a box of cigars.
