the purest baking powdc made,
and I have adopted it exclusively
in my cooking schools and for daily
household use." Sarah T. Rorer,
Principal Philadelphia Cooking School,
"I prefer Cleveland's baking
powder to others because-it is pure
and wholesome, it takes less for the

Advocates of Different Heating Systems Cause
a Split la Committee.
The School Board Indulges In a Hunt
for an Ethiopian In the Paling and
After Insinuating AmongThemselves
Outsider's Make Inelnuatlo ns Bids
for Construction of the High School
Will Be Advertised For.
The sohool board had its own troubles
last night. Tbe members seemed to
be jealous of the councils because of
tbe investigation wiiicb is now on and
are oourtlng a little investigation of
their owu. There were members with
suspicions, members with insinuations.
indignant members and those who
were not members at all who were
very outspoken in their allegations of
suspicious aotions.
It was all about the awarding of eon
tracts, tbe heating Bud ventilating of
io. iu Duuaing being tbe big bone of
contention. The fun stiirted when Mr.
Carson, for tbe building committee.
reported in favor of giving the work
" Smesd, Wills & Co., of Philadelphia.
W. J. O'Malley presented a minority
"port awarding the contract to Ilunl
& Connell. It transpired during tin
discussion that followed that Architect
Divls, iu figuring no the cost of put
ting in the respective systems, found
at tint that Hunt & Conn, li t,
system was tbe cheaper, but yesterday
ne reportau to tbo committee that nt
had discovered a mistake in bis figure)
and that Hunt & Connell were $30
dearer than tmead. Wills & Co. Thlt;
mistake and its discovery, Mr. David
cxpiainea, ware una to tbe Mot that.
owing to the short time tbe committee
gave him to figure on the plans, be had
to make a hurried report at first and
verify bis figures luter.
This changing of the figures caused
Mr. Notz to think that be deteoted tbe
odor of a rodent and iu a speech of
five minutes or more he told bis col
leagues of his nasal disturbance. He
wanted to know what show an honest
unsuspecting bidder would have with
such a condition of affairs existing or
something to that ellsct.
Mr. Jennings said be signed the ma
jority report because StnaJ, Wills &
Co. were the lowest bidders. Mr.
Wornuer suld he would vote for steam
heat. Mr. Watroua asked for a report
from the architect, and Arohitecl
Davis proceeded to explain as above.
In addition he stated that the bids wore:
Sraeud, Willa & Co.. $3,500; Hunt &
Connell, 3,751. According to his cal
culation on Saturday it would cost
$4,055 to put in the Stnead, Wills & Co.
system complete, flues, stacks and all;
and $-1,750 for the Hunt & Connell
system. His revised figures mitde yes
terday showed that Smead. Wills &
Co s system would cost but M.711 and
Hunt & Council's $4,770. The mis take,
be explained, was due to tbe fact that
there was a "flap" titan accompanying
tue &meua, w inset Co. drawings which
con fossil him.
Mr. O'Malley then moved that the
minority report be accepted. Mr. Jen
uings moved to have the minority re
port laid on tbe table. This motion
was lost and the minority report giv
ing the contract to Hunt & Conaell
prevailed by a vote of 0 ayes to 0 nays.
Among the spectators in the rear of
the room were a number of agents who
represented firms that bad sent in bids
for furnishing supplies. Some of them
waxed wrotb, especially tbe paper
men. Mr. Jacobs, for the supply com
mittee, which is now wrestling with
tbe bids for furnishing the supplies for
tbe coming year, reported that the
ommittee bad only begun its lubors
and at present could report on bnt
two itsins, spelling blanks and pencil
pads. The contract for 20.000 of tbe
blanks they awarded to E. H. Butler &
Co., of Philadelphia, for $28 per thou
sand and for furnishing tbe pads Rey
nolds Bros., of this city, were favored,
their bid being $19 20 per thousand.
After tbe meeting there was consider
able kicking among the unsuccessful
bidders and one of tbem, W. H. With
ers, went so far as to state that be was
lower than the firm awarded one ol
the contracts.
Then Mr. Jennings objected 'to tht
manner iu which tbe supply committee
had presented its report. He claimed
that all the bids should have been read.
in order that they might be placed on
record and bo open to inspection. After
considerable discussion tbe committee's
recommendations were adopted and the
secretary was instrncted to make out a
tubulate! report of the bids.
Mr. Jennings, for the high school
committee, reported a resolution di
recting the secretary to advertise for
proposals for the construction of the
new high school building according to
the plaus of Little & O'Connor, whioh
cull for both a fire proof building aud
one that is not fire proof.
the board decided to visit and in
spect the new No. 13 building, which
is now ready for occupancy. The visit
will be made on Thursday afternoon at
2 o'clock.
WmRREN again indorsed.

Introducing a garden-grown tea, a
higher grade than is usually brought
to this eonntry. Americana as a rule
are not vry particular about tneir tea,
in many oases not even knowing whioh
variety they like best This is due in
a great mMSur to the fact that nearly
all the tea brought to this country is of
inferior grade. Now, the flavor of a
high grade Japan is as easily distin
guished from a fine Ooloug as an im
ported olgar is from a Lancaster two
for (most housewives will understand
this difference). Mr. Price is confl
dent tbt when the garden growth
tea once gets a foothold iu
Scranton there are people enough
who will appreolate a strictly fine ar
ticle to make a large wade in it, rea
sonably certain. The tea comes in
pound packages to insure against mis
takes, aud includes the following varie
ties; Oolong. Pan Fired Japan, Bas
ket Fired Jupan, Congon English
Breakfast, Moynne Gunpowder and a
Blend; and, although this tirade brings
wherever sold, from $1.25 to $150 a
pound, it oan bsliad for 85c uutil fully
established. Who would not be willtug
to pay lo. additional for each cup ot
tea hi drinks if it is a pleasure to drink
it? If you buy a package of Garden
Growth Tea and find tliat you do not
cure for it, you can, after a thorough
trial, return it and get the price of a
full pound back.
