BITTER TASTE. It Aids In the Detection of Unwholesome Food. Daniel Webster in the famous White trial in Salem, Mass., years ago declared that "murder -will out." This maxim has been fcund applicable to many other things beside murder. Housewives know it to be true when there is alum in baking powder. A. bitterness ID the breed at once betrays the alum's presence. It can't conceal its true nature. The alum bitterness "will out," and because it will, physicians, who understand the harmful effect of alum on the system : are at a loss to know why people continue to buy baking powders containing it. All baking rjowds sold for 25 cents a pound and less contain alum. There is surely ni economy in using these cheap powders. For a pure cream of tartar powder, as Dr. Price's was shown to be at the World's Fair, goes so much farther and gives so much better results, there is no doubb of its being more economical In the long run.
