Avoid the Cheap and “Big Can”
The cheap baking powders
have but one recommendation:
they certainly give the pur-
chaser plenty of powder for his
money, but it’s not all baking
powder: the bulk is made up of
cheap materials that have no
levening power. These powders
are so carelessly made from
inferior materials that they will
not always make light, whole-
some food. Further, these
cheap baking powders have a
very small percentage of leven-
ing gas; therefore, it takes from
two to three times as much of
such powder to raise the cake or
biscuit as it does of Calumet
Baking Powder. Therefore, in
the long run, the actual cost to
the consumer of the cheap pow-
ders is more than Calumet would
be. Cheap baking powders
leave the bread sometimes
bleached and acid, sometimes
yellow and alkaline, and often

Why not buy a perfectly
wholesome baking powder like
Calumet, that is at the same
time moderate in price and one
which can be relied upon? Calu-
met is always the same, keeps
indefinately and gives the cook
the least trouble. Received

Friends and Loved Ones:—As
I now iive in Oklahoma, I will
write to The Rockdale Reporter,
as I take that dear old paper. I
was raised near Oakdale school
house on the old H. P. Moses
place, and I love old Rockdale, as
1 lived there until 1 was 12 years
old. My father’s name is M. B.
Moses, and I have lots cf rela-
tives near my old home. Since I
moved to Oklahoma I have mar-
ried—have a husband and two
sweet little girls- As for Okla-
homa, I like to live here, but it
is awful cold here as well as it
is there. We have had three big
snows in the past month and lots
of rain. My husband’s brother
and dear old father, G. W.
Hanks, Sr., who is HI) years old,
are with us. Sam, the brother,
is 19 years old.
Well I will close, by sending
best wishes to all, and a reply
from some of my relatives and
friends. Mattie Hanks
New School Principal.
Prof. Polk C. Webb of Round
Rock has been elected principal
of the Milano public school to
succeed Prof. Monroe Pevehouse,
who has resigned. Mr. Webb
and family will locate here with-
in the next few weeks and he
will take charge of our school in
the new $7,500 handsome brick

building will be made within a
few days, to the delight of all
the pupils and the teachers, like-
wise the entire city of Milano.
We regret the resignation of Mr.
Pevehouse, yet rejoice in the
good news of securing the serv-
ices of Mr. Webb.—Milano Ga-
