Successful Economy In Baking.
Most housewives assume when they buy
a big cuii of buklnK P0Wd«r Ht a low price
that they have been economical. They
have to a slight extent—but when they I
use that cheap "big can" baking powder. |
and find It ho uneven In quality, or so un-
reliable that the baking falls, there Isn't
bo much economy In It after all, for the
wasted materials far outweigh the few
cents saved In the price.

of every woman that desires It. She haa ,

by experienced chemists that failure Is
Impossible. Only the best materials are
Used and the proportions of the Ingredi-

Mrs. Enoa Shearer, Yew and Wash-
ington Sts., Centralia, Wash., says:
"For years I was weak and run down,
could not sleep, my limbs swelled and
were troublesome. I
was fast in bed four
months. Three doc-
tors said there was
no cure for me and I
was given up to die.
Being urged, I used
Doan's Kidney Pills.
Soon I was better
and In a few weeks was about the
house, well and strong again."

Too Late to Change.
"A man can no more change his rep-
utation than he can change his face
or his arms," said Senator La Follette
at a banquet In Madison.
"There was once a wicked old Madi-
son millionaire who took his pastor
aside and said:
" 'I am going to devote the re-
mainder of my life to doing good.'
"Dr. Thirdly, outspoken man, re-
" 'Do you mean John H. Good, the
wealthy farmer ,or young Sam Good,
the Socialist millionaire?' "
Thi« Time for a Friend.
" 'Tls a wise man," said Robert Ede-
fion, "who knows when to ask ques-
tions. The other night I was standing
Inside the railroad station when an
Irish cab driver came up to me and
asked me how soon the next train
came in. I told him and he said thank
you and went away. In about five
minutes he came back with the same
question. 'I told you not more than
five minutes ago,' I said. 'I know it,'
he answered cheerfully, 'but It's not
me th't wants to know this time. It's
a friend of mine outside th't has to
to watch his horses and can't come in
an' ask yez himself!'" — Young's
If Your Food Fails to Sustain You,
One sort of diet may make a person

A young woman from Phlla. says:
"For several years I kept, in a run-
down, miserable sort of condition, waa
depressed and apprehensive of trouble.
I lost flesh in a distressing way and
seemed in a perpetual sort of dreamy
nightmare. No one serious disease
showed, but the 'all-over' sickness was
"Finally, between the doctor and fa-
ther, I was put on Grape-Nuts and
cream, as it was decided I must have a
nourishing food that the body could
make use of.
"The wonderful change that came
over me was not, like Jonah's gourd,
the growth of a single night, yet It
came with a rapidity that astonished
"During the first week I gained in
weight, my spirits Improved, and the

Pitching and Paragraphing.
After Walter Johnson, the Washing-
ton pitcher, had "held out" for several
weeks for more salary than had been
offered to him originally, and had
finally signed up for a fat lot of mon-
ey, he proceeded to pitch one or two
losing games. This was surprising,
because Johnson is one of the best
In the business.
George Brown, a Washington wit
and paragrapher, explained the matter
in these words:
"Johnson Is too busy going to the
bank to pitch."—Popular Magazine.

Mr. Cumrox, "people's minds are a
