J RODAMAR of Eagle Twp For County Attorney GEORGE W DAWSON of East Waterloo From High Government Authority No authority of greater experience on food products ex ists than Dr Henry A Mott of New York Dr Motts wide experience as Government Chemist for the Indian Depart ment gave him exceptional opportunities to acquaint himself with the qualities and constituent parts of baking powders He understands thoroughly the comparative value of every brand in the market and has from time to time expressed his opinion thereof On a recent careful reexamination and analysis he finds Dr Prices Cream Baking Powder superior to all others in strength purity and efficiency Dr Mott writes New York March soth 1894 I find Dr Prices Cream Baking Powder to be superior to all others for the following reasons ist It liberates the greatest amount of leavening gas and is consequently more efficient 2nd The ingredients used in its preparation are of the purest character 3rd Its keeping qualities are excellent 4th On account of the purity of the materials and their relative proportions Dr Prices Cream Baking Powder must be considered the acme of perfection as regards wholesomeness and efficiency and I say this having in mind certificates I have given several years ago respecting two other baking powders The reasons for the change in my opinion are based on the above facts and the new method adopted to prevent your baking powder from caking and deteriorating in strength HENRY A MOTT Ph D L L D1 WE HA VE NEVER OWNED SO COMPLETE A STOCK OF Dress Goods Flannels Shawls Blankets Muslins Prints

Weekly Gazette of Sept 20 has the following reference to the Rev S H Baslior the PopDem candidate for Congress in this district A preacher named Bashor who used to live down in Carroll county has be come somewhat noted as a circus per former He first attracted attention in Carroll county by riding two horses at one time one named and the other Prohibition Dis mounting from these he essayed the onehorse act on the nag Populist bound for Washington Distanced in this race he conceived the idea that while this last nag wasnt worth a con tinental single it might go well with a trotting mate so he took the beast out to Iowa and placing it alongside the well known spavined animal Demo crat he mounted the two and with an eye on the building under the big dome he is just whooping er up for all he is worth Bashor never was a howling success as a rider either single or double and after another failure he will probably go back to preaching again WM WAGNER DEALER IN CHOICE WINES ANO LIQUOR

onwhich the nineteenth century will look as its EUH Koes down is the movement of help fulness to one another that is spreading among civilized men In all history there is no record of a time when peo ple generally were doing so much to better the lot of those less fortunate There is snobbery without end There is the childish aristocracy of wealth which thinks itself superior because it has more of the merely animal comforts of life There are cheating and despoil ing as cruol if not so violent as any that blotted the human record in the days of the robber barons orthe pirates of the Spanish main But never before did thinkers so often sit down and strive to reason out meth odsof removing the inequalities of for tune among civilized men The model tenement houses and cooking classes for the poor the cheap music books and summer and winter excursions bring mankindnearer a level of intelligence and sympathy than they ever were be fore The college settlements are one of the most striking features of the move ment Into a squalid crowded dirty district in a great city go a few refined devoted men or women They rent a cheap suit of rooms They live among the poor oftentimes when they them selves have been accustomed to every luxury that wealth can bring They do not patronize the people They quietly and with infinite tact make them feel as equals and brothers and sisters They bring cleanliness light flowers music libraries and good food within reach of those whom poverty and ignorance have stunted and dwarfed They teach bet ter cleaner finer ways of living Espe cially among the children of the poor are these lessons learned Such will be lifted to a permanently higher level from which their children that come after them will never sink There too is grand cooperative movement of the nineteenth century teaching that co the rul ing principle of a true civilization In stead of every mans hand being against his neighbors the hands all working together in harmony will produce plenr ty for all Among the churches too there are indicationsof downright hon est effort to apply the teachings of the founder of Christianity directly to the solution of social and economic prob lems
