The different Health authorities seem
to have different ways of repressing
the sale of bad baking powder. In
England they have prosecuted the

The alum baking powders are usually
offered at a low price, ten to twenty

Consumers can protect themselves
by buying only high-grade baking

grocer to take something else as "just
