Care in Preparing Food.
In recent years scientists have
proved that the value of food is meas
ured largely by its purity; the re-
sult is the most stringent pure food
laws that have ever been known.
One food that has stood out promi-
nently as a perfectly clean and pure
food and which was as pure before
the enactment of these laws as it
could possibly be is Quaker Oats;
conceded by the experts to be the idea,
food for making strength of muscle
and brain. The best and cheapest of
all foods. The Quaker Oats Company
is the only manufacturer of oatmeal
that lias satisfactorily solved the proU
lem of removing the husks and black
specks which are so annoying when
other brands are eaten. If you are
convenient to the store buy the rig

BABY HORRIBLY BURNED.
By Boiling Grease—Skin All Came Off

Used Cuticura: No Scar Left.
"My baby was sitting beside the
fender and -we were preparing the
breakfast when the frying-pan full of
boiling grease was upset and it went all j
over one side of her face and head.
Some one wiped the scald with, a
towel, pulling the entire skin off. v\ e
took her to a doctor. He tended her
a week and gave me some stuff to put
on. But it all festered and I thought
the baby was disfigured for life. I
used about three boxes of Cuticura
Ointment and it was wonderful how
it healed. In about five weeks it was
better and there wasn't a mark to tell
where the scald had been. Her skin
is just like velvet. Mrs. Hare, 1,

The most interesting announce-
ment ever made in connection with
the automobile industry was un-
doubtedly that made a month or two
ago to the effect that the new models
of the White Steaui Cars could 1« run
on kerosene, or coal oil, instead of
gasoline. Everyone at ouce recog-
nized that the use of the new fuel
would add materially to the advan-
tages which the White already pos-
sessed over other types of cars.
There were some people, however,
who were sceptical as to whether or
not the new fuel could be used with
complete success, and, therefore, the
makers of the White Car, the hite
Company, of Cleveland, Ohio, deter
mined to make a public demonstrn
tion of the new fuel in the 1909 Cfld
From the standpoint of the public,
no test more satisfactory could have
been selected. First of all, the dis-
tance covered on the Glidden Tour,
from Detroit to Denver and thence to
Kansas City, was 2650 miles. This
was certainly more than sufficient to
bring out any weaknesses, if such had
existed. Still more important was
the fact that the car was at all times
while on the road under the supervi-
sion of observers named by those
who entered other contesting cais.
Therefore, it would have been impos-
sible for the driver of the White to
have even tightened a bolt without
the fact being noted and a penalty in-
flicted. At night the cars were
guarded by Pinkerton detectives and
The complete success of the new
fuel while on the 2650-mile public
teBt and the advantages gained
through its use were well described
in the following dispatch which the
correspondent of the New York hun
sent to his paper at the conclusion of
"A feature of the tour which was
watched with special interest was
that the White Steamer used kero-
sene, or 'coal oil,' as fuel instead of
gasoline. The new fuel worked
splendidly throughout the 2650-mile
journey, and all claims made in its
behalf were fully proven. First of
all, as regards cheapness, the White
driver secured kerosene all along the
route from 6 cents to 10 cents drap-
er per gallon than was paid fot gaso-
line. Secondly, the new fuel was
handled without any precautions, and
it was not unusual to see kerosene
being poured into the fuel tank while
the crew of the car and an interested
crowd stood by with lighted cigars
and cigarettes. At the finish of the
tour, the White was the only car per-
mitted by the authorities to enter
Convention Hall, where the technical
examination took place, without
draining its fuel tank. Thirdly, the
new fuel proved to be absolutely
without smoke or smell. Fourthly,
kerosene could be purchased at what-
ever part of the route was most con-
venient, and not once during the trip
through the ten States of the Middle
West was there found a grocery store

where kerosene was not readily
cheaply obtainable. Finally,
amount of fuel used on the trip
showed that kerosene is at least
fifteen per cent, more efficient, gallon
for gallon, than gasoline. The ear in
other respects made a most creditable
showing, and there was the usual riv-
alry among the observers to be as-
signed to the White so that they
could ride with the maximum of com-
fort. The only adjustments or re-
pairs charged against the car during
the long trip were tightening a lubri-
cator pipe and wiring a damaged mud
guard. These penalties were not In-
dicted until more than 2000 miles
had been completed with an absolute-
ly perfect score."
A particularly interesting feature
of the new White Steamer is that
either kerosene or gasoline may be
used as fuel. The necessary adjust-
ments so that the fuel may be changed
from kerosene to gasoline, or vice
versa, may bo made in a couple of
minutes; but so completely successful
has kerosene proved to be, that it is
not believed that any purchasers will
care to use gasoline.
The White Company report that
the demand for their new steam cars
—both the $2000-model and the
$ 1000-model—exceed their most san-
guine expectations. It is evident that
the combination of steam—the pow-
er which everyone understands and
has confidence in—with kerosene—
the fuel which everyone has on hand
and can handle without any danger
.is thoroughly appreciated by
up-to-date purchasers of automo-

second, by not conforming to the law

third, through abuse of the protection
of interstate commerce.

by a petition signed by 2,000 citizens,
