Marble Rock Weekly, The (Newspaper) - February 17, 1898, Marble Rock, IowaAre you to live in Alaska that will Frimd the Universal article of diet in that depended upon and indispensable is bread or biscuit. And to make the bread and biscuit either in the Camp or upon the Trail yeast cannot be must be baking powder and the pow Der manufactured by the processes of the Royal baking powder company miners and have Learned is the Only one which will stand in that Peculiar climate of cold Aad dampness tend raise the bread and biscuit satisfactorily. I i of Lueise ure our every one proposing to go to Alaska Ancl the Yukon country to know for should lie be persuaded by some outfitter to take one of the cheap brands of baking powder it will Cost As Ciuch to transport it and then Vixen he opens it for use after All his labor in packing it Over the Long and difficult route he will find a solid caked mass or a lot of spoiled powder with no strength and useless. Such a mistake might Lead to the most serious results. Alaska is to place in to Experiment in food or try to economize with your stomach. For use in such a climate and under the trying ind fatiguing conditions of life and labor in that country everything must be the Best and most useful and All it is imperative that All food supplies shall have perfect keeping qualities. It is absurd to convey Over such difficult and expensive routes an article that deteriorate in transit or that will be found when required for use to have lost a Jerreat part of its value. There is no better guide to follow in these those have gone through similar experience. Or. Mcquesten who father of after an experience of years upon the Trail in the Camp and in the use of every kind of Supply says we find in Alaska that the importance of a proper kind of baking powder can not be overestimated. A Miner with a can of bad baking powder is almost helpless in Alaska. We have tried All sorts and have been Obligee to Settle Down to use nothing but Royal. It is stronger and carries further but above All things it is the Only powder that will endure the severe climatic changes of the Arctic Region it is for the same reasons that the u. S. Government in its Relief expeditions and Peary the famous Arctic traveler have carried the Hoyal baking powder exclusively. The Royal baking powder will not cake nor lose its strength either of Board ship or in Damp climates and is the most highly concentrated and efficient of Leavening agents. Hence it is indispensable to every alaskan outfit. It can be had of any of the trading companies in Alaska but should the Miner procure his supplies before leaving he should resist every attempt of the out fitter to Palm off upon him any of the other brands of baking powder for they spoil and prove the cause of great disappointment and trouble.

Since Chas. A. Dana s death Joseph is Dill the War horse of the Chicago Tribune is the chief surviving representative of the old school of virile aggressive editorial giants. To have ind thrown at them was part of the profession at All times but to find health a mud is rather a modern innovation. That is what Joseph Medill has been doing of late. Or. Medill is an investigator and when the stories of the miraculous Magno mud at Indiana Meiai Spiggs Organ la big eau the country the great editor became interested and eventually decided to try this mysterious substance on his own rheumatic limbs and weigh its value. He was accompanied by his private physician a Young armenian scientist of High attainments. The great editor was mud mummified daily for several weeks and gained visibly in weight strength and vitality. The 6nal result of the Experiment was an unqualified Success. Or. Medill went Back to Chicago in september and wrote an editorial about magus mud with his own hand. Next he sent his son in Law for a Little of the mud treatment. In he went Down again and since the new Bath House is completed he expects to be a regular visitor four times a year. This mud treatment in which or. Medill found so much virtue is Peculiar yet logical. After All every form of life Springs from the Earth which is the great destroyer and Assim i later of dead and effete matter. At the Indiana Mineral Springs is a Beautiful Little natural amphitheatre the slopes being grown with magnificent Oaks. At the foot of Tho converging Hills a big Lithia Spring gushes Forth at the rate of 3.000 barrels a Day and floods the soil which consists of a Rich Black porous Loam fed by the deciduous foliage of the Oak Trees. This Peculiar soil saturated with Mineral salts for Ages is As soluble As sugar and being devoid of Clay is not Sticky in the least. It is not therefore in any sense related to the conventional mud of the Road Way of the Chicago Street or to the variety which clings to your heels. The mud is applied to the patient on a cot the subject being entirely encased m the substance steamed to a proper temperature. It then acts As a poultice stimulates the skin superficial blood vessels and nerves opens the pores and it hates the blood Dis solving All uric acid deposits. Nothing can be simpler or More rational.

Pat Mcginnis had a Good Deal of trouble with his laundress sunday after sunday had his shirt come Back with the neck but ton off or else hanging by a thread. He had spoken to her on the subject and she had promised to see to it but still the but ton was not on properly. He got out of patience one sunday when the missing Button had made him late for Parade and exclaimed the woman i la see if i can t give her a hint this time he then took the lid of a tin blacking Box about three inches in diameter drilled two holes in it with a Fork and sewed it on to tire neck of the shirt that wag next to be washed.
