BIG FORTUNE WELL HANDLED
MADE FROM CREAM OF TARTAR
DERIVED SOLELY FROM GRAPES,
THE MOST DELICIOUS AND WHOLE-
SOME OF ALL FRUIT ACIDS
Its superiority is unquestioned
Its fame world wide
Its use a protection and a
guarantee against alum food
★ ★★★★★★★★ ★
Alum baking powders are classed by physicians detri-
mental to health.
Many consumers use alum baking powders unaware.
They are allured to the danger by the cry of cheapness,
by fake tests and exhibitions and false and flippant adver-
tisements in the newspapers. Alum baking powders do
not make a 44 pure, wholesome and delicious food ” any
more than two and two make ten.
If you wish to avoid a danger to your food,
READ THE LABEL
and decline to buy or use any baking powder that is not
plainly designated as a cream of tartar powder.
AMERICAN BOY IS SPOILED
However, He Is Nearly Always Amus-
ing, Even When He Is Most
"The great American boy,” said the
West Side woman, "is so badly spoil-
ed that about half the time he is an
^ offense instead of the joy he might
he, but he is so thoroughly 'on' that
he nearly always is amusing, even
when most exasperating. It is need-
ful when dealing with him, or even
when meeting him casually, to be
either ridicule-proof or else to have
a sense of humor that enables you to
enjoy a laugh at your own expense.
A few days ago I found it necessary
to take a taxi at a quiet street cor-
ner. A few boys gathered instantly,
to supervise the proceeding. As the
chauffeur closed the door and pre-
pared to mount his seat one of the
boys called to him in the most inde-
scribable tone of languid hateur—in-
tended to represent a lady doing the
lop limit of the society act—‘Home,
John.’ The chauffeur grinned, though
he looked somewhat alarmed lest his
fare might be annoyed. I was glad I
could share his appreciation, but I
y took pains not to let the boys see me
smile. I should think actors might
learn innumerable things by studying
"One Sunday not long ago,” said the
man to whom she was talking, “I
was on my way to church and was
walking along upper Seventh avenue
with a lady of my acquaintance. I
wore a silk hat and the usual clothes
for such an occasion. I was talking
earnestly with my companion, not
noticing my surroundings. Suddenly
a small boy, who was sitting on a tiny
cart and pushing it along with one
foot, darted right between my feet
and attempted to force a passageway
to the beyond. I nearly was over-
turned, was forced to execute some of
the most instantaneous and inelegant
gymnastics of my life and regained
1 my balance only with extreme diffi-
culty. The scrap of humanity, who
was causing my distress, glared up at
me wrathfully and yelled, ‘Hey, you
guy wld de silk hat on, why don't yer
look w’ur yer goin’?’ ”
Mothers of little babies that suf-
fered much from the intense heat in
the early part of July last summer
will be interested in the success of
the "baby tent” scheme adopted in
some of the big cities.
The tents were placed on flat roofs
of tall buildings and in open lots, with
V eight little cradles or cots in each
tent. When all was ready mothers of
babies under two years were Invited
to leave them at the nearest available
tent over night, so that the youngster,
in addition to enjoying the privilege
of sleeping out of doors, could also
receive the attention of trained nurses
•and doctors free.
Some of the tents have a perforated
iron pipe extending along the ridge
pole and connected with the city wit-
ter supply. On very hot nights the
water was turned on and allowed to
stream down over the canvas. By
evaporation it greatly reduced the
temperature inside the tents. Some
of the tents were also kept cool by
the use of large blocks of Ice In tubs
N before the entrance. Electric fans
blew the cold air from the Ice Into
the tents sufficiently to keep the ba-
bies comfortably cool.
This is the way some of the poor
, babies are being cared for, but the
' ideas could be utilized by any one who
had the welfare of the baby at heart.
Fought His Way to Position.
Sir William Maxwell Aitken, one of
the new members of the house of com-
>mons, though many times a million-
aire, began life selling life insurance.
,The son of a Canadian Presbyterian
minister, he was without means, and
in college wrote Insurance whenever
and wherever He could to help pay Ms
Millions Left by the Late Russell Sage
Are Being Expended for the Wei-
fare of Humanity.
While the late Russell Sage was in
the flesh he was one of the most pru-
dent, shrewd and persistent money-
grubbers in Gotham. The astute finan-
cier never plunged nor risked any
money in wild-cat schemes. He was
a “sure-shot” operator in Wall street,
and when he died he left in the hands
of his lone widow a fortune of some-
thing like $75,000,000. Since becom-
ing possessed of this enormous for-
I tune she has worked as persistently
and assiduously in scattering the
money as her husband did in gather-
[ ing It. The scriptures tell us that
j the miser is the man that "heaps up
| riches and cannot tell who shall gath-
er them.” Russell Sage knew better,
and the good lady upon whose shoul-
ders was imposed the burden of this
enormous sum of money has worked
hard in lightening the burden. Her
philanthrophies have been productive
of as much wisdom as marked her hus-
band’s operations in the market. She
is reported to be falling in health, and
her task is only begun. Should she
be taken from the world thousands
will regret her departure, and it is
very earnestly to be hoped that fur-
ther care of the property will fall Into
They are a happy Sewickley couple.
They haven’t been married very long.
In fact, the honeymoon has barely
waned. An elderly friend met the
bridegroom downtown yesterday and
slapped him on the back.
“Well, happy as a lark, I suppose?”
“How’s the cooking?”
“I have one trouble there. It's just
this, my wife has been preparing angel
food every day for dinner.
“You must be getting tired of it.”
“I am. Yet I feel a hesitancy about
saying anything. How soon after the
honeymoon would it be proper to ask
for beefsteak and onions?"—Pittsburg
Perhaps Lot’s wife was turned to
salt because she was too peppery.
A California Doctor With Forty Years’
“In my forty years’ experience as a
teacher and practitioner along hy-
gienic lines,” says a Los Angeles
physician, "I have never found a food
to compare with Grape-Nuts for the
benefit of the general health of all
classes of people.
“I have recommended Grape-Nuts
for a number of years to patients with
the greatest success and every year’s
experience makes me more enthusias-
tic regarding Its use.
“I make it a rule to always recom-
mend Grape-Nuts, and Postum in place
of coffee, when giving my patients in-
structions as to diet, for I know both
Grape-Nuts and Postum can be digest-
ed by anyone.
“As for myself, when engaged in
much mental work my diet twice a
day consists of Grape-Nuts and rich
cream. I find it just the thing to
build up gray matter and keep the
brain in good working order.
“In addition to its wonderful effects
as a brain and nerve food Grape-Nuts
always keeps the digestive organs in
perfect, healthy tone. I carry it with
me when I travel, otherwise I am al-
most certain to have trouble with my
stomach.” Name given by Postum Co.,
Battle Creek, Mich.
Strong endorsements like the above
from physicians all over the country
have stamped Grape-Nuts the most
scientific food in the world. "There's
a reason.” /

book, “The Road to Wellvllle.”

His Changed Fortune.
“Wow! There went Smithkins in
his new six. When I knew him a few
years ago he had a junk shop.”
“He still has. Only he moved it to
a fashionable street, kept the same
stock, and labeled it ‘Antiques.’ ”—
