How to Get Rich.
Every body wants to be rich. Here
Is a plan which will make you wealthy
if you faithfully carry it out. Money
makes money. No one is s J poor that
he cannot rake up a penny to start on.
Now, upon the first day of the month
deposit a cent In a bank, and on each
of the succeeding thirty days of the
mouth., double your depoHit. Follow
this program faithfully, and at the end
of the month you will be surprised to
find that your account will show the
sum of ten million, seven hundred and
thirty-seven thouund, four hundred
and eighteen dollars and twenty three
cents to your credit. With that amount
all you have to do hi to retire and let
the other fellows bustle. If you don't
believe this statement, do a little sum
in arithmetic and be convinced. In the
face of such a plain simple financial
problem, who is there that cannot grow
rich in a month and forever afterward
snap his fingers at poverty aud labor?

The Health Department of New York
I hftB Be,zed a quantity of so-called cheap
I 1..1.I.. . . a .....
baking powder, which It found In that
city. Attention was attracted to it by
the low price at which It was being
sold in the department stores. Samples
were taken and the chemist of the
Health Department reported the stuff
to be "an alum powder," which an
alysis showed to be composed chiefly of
alum and pulverized rock.
The powder was declared to be dan
gerous to health, and several thousand
pounds were cartered to the offal dock
It Is unsafe to experiment with these
so-called "cheap" articles of food. They
are sure to be made alum, rock, or
other injurious matter. In bakintr
powders, the high class, cream of tartar
brands are the most economical, be
cause they go farther in use aud are
healthful beyond question.
Letter to A. H. Ulsh,
Dear Sir : You understand grinding
wheat, buckwheat, rye, oats and corn.
We understand grinding white-lead
and white-zinc. The twosortsof grind
ing are not much alike. Very likely
oats and wheat behave very differently
in the mill, and you manage them dif
ferentlywe know very little about
your work ; don't kuow; don't need to;
we'd rather depend ou you.
But you paint your house and mill,
and out-buildings; perhaps you'd be
glad to kuow about grinding paint; for
some people mix their paint with a
stick in a tub.
We use lead and zinc nothing else.
And our zinc is as tough as your oats.
Tub mixtures imagine tbey mix it.
They don't; they can't Take grinding
to mix lead and zinc.
They are both white. Tub-mixers
don't know it; but tub-mixed lead and
zinc is a streak of one alongside of a
streak of another.
We grind as you grind; and our paint
is lead and zinc ground together, mix
ed intimately : it is neither lead nor
zinc, bu t lead and zinc : the lead is lost
and the zinc is lost : each lost in the
other : both lost in the mixture. Lead
chalks and zinc peels : lead and zlno
ground together hang on and protect
We take care of your mill outside
you take care of it Inside.
