The New York Board of Health
Find it Contains Alum and
Rock Declare it Dangerous
to Health and Dump
it into the River
The New York pilfers reports
thnt the Health Department of
that city lute seized an dangerous
to health nearly two tons of cheap
mixtures sold for baking powder
and dumped them into the offal
scow to be destroyed. More of
the powder was found in a Sixth
ave. 'department store. The re-
port of the analysis of the Health
department stated that it was "an
alum baking powder" containing
alum and pulverized rock.
The different Health Author-
ities seem to have different ways
of repressing the sale of bad bak-
ing powders. In England they
have prosecuted the grocers under
the general law and broken up the
traffic. In Missouri the sale of
alum baking powder is actually
prohibited by Jaw. In new Yorjt
they seize the unwholesome stuff
and cast it into the river without
any discussion. The latter way
is certainly effective.
The alum baking powders are
usuully offered at a low price ten
to twenty cents a pound or with I
some prize as a temptation to the
Consumers can protect themselves
by buying only high-grade bak-
ing powder of established name
and reputation. Do not be tempt
! by the grocer to take something
else as "just as good or "our
own brand tor the trials show
that the grocer himself is often
deceived by unscrupulous ' makers
and is selling an alum powder
without knowing it.
There are several good powders
on the market ; let the housekeep-
er insist on having what she
knows is right and not be induc-
ed to risk the life of the family

Including our now possessions
the territory of tho United States

tory of the Roman empire under

third with 1244010 square miloB

Though the territory of conti-
nental France embraces only 204-
072 squuro miles her colonial
possessions aggregate 2740000
square miles most of which are
in Africa. Great Britain's island
headquarters aro not much larger
than the state of Georgia but her
sway extends over Africa India
Australia and canada. China's
territory is restricted to her vast
Asiatic domain while Russia's
extend over the greater part of
western Europe and embraces tho
whole of Siberia.
Our colonial possessions are
comparatively small but they aro
scattered over both hemispheres
and when added to our vast conti-
nental territory they give us an
important increment of strength.

greatly stirred up over the lease
question as they want the state
to stop leasing tint school lands
to big stockmen and put it on
the market and sell it in small
tracts to actual settlers only.

The Rcnnion at Dallas.
From all parts of tho South
special and regular trains aro
bearing to tho Forth Texas me-
tropolis Dallas dklegations of
men whoso histories aro among
tho most romarkablo in tho an-
nals of nations. Thcso aro rep-
resentatives of thoBe stalwart and
sublimo legioiiB "who woro tho
groy" forty yearB ago and gird-
led tho land of thoir homes and
their altara with battle-lineB that
hold fast for four terrific years
and required tho compacted for-
ces of two great continents to
shatter and bring to surronder.
SayB tho Atlanta Constitution:
"History though leadon-shod
arrives after all and tho times
aro coming slowly but suroly
when the soldier of tho groy jack-
et will be written down and uni-
versally read as one of tho most
approvable patriots and heroes of
the ages. Who cares that even
tho meretricious politicians of
the winning side call him "robel"
or "traitor?" What matters it
that a timid popularity-craving
sentiment yet bars him from
equal justico with those against
whom he fought? Ho has faced
worse missiles than pension-stuffed
epithets and has borne more
serious hardships than disbar-
ment from office.
The Confederate soidier fought
for principles he believed woro
as right as the Oracles of Holy
Writ and all the arguments of
politics and all the arbitraments
of war can never change the fact.
He perilled all he owned and life
itself to sustain the cause that
embodied to him the dearest in
terests of his people and the high
est obligations of patriotism
and mortal men have nover yet
done more in any cause that tri
umphed. But when his cause
was lost the Confederate soldier
did not shrink from his imminent
duty or shirk the Bufferings hu
miliations and privations deman
ded in the work of conforming to
the new order of things that came
upon him. And in the past
thirty-seven years he has wrought
marvels of regeneration and re-
habilitation in his Southland
until the world counts him today
a gieatcr hero for his victories of
peace than for his valor and
prowess in a fateful war.
These glorious old veterans of
the grey are gathering annually
in thinner and more pathetic col-
umns but their people love and
honor them as the elect of the
land we love. That their reunion
at Dallas may be full of pleasure
to every one of them is tho pray-
er of tho whole Southland.
