H DODSON A niïS Alum and Ammonia, H Above diagram was drawn and verified in all its details, by Prof. Peter Collier, who is pre-eminent as a Chemist, and Scientist. The illustration is made in accordance with his chemical tests of each brand enumerated. The Carbonic acid gas was calculated to get the leavening strength and the quantative analysis to ascertain the comparative wholesomeness, purity, and general usefulness of the leading Powders. The result of Prof. Collier's examination and test, reveáis the fact, that, with but one exception, every brand tested contained either Ammonia or Alum, and a number both. Not one woman in ten thousand would use an Ammonia or Alum Baking Powderifshe knew it. Such Powders not only undermine the health, but ammonia imparts a sallow or blotched complexion. Note. - Dr. Price's Cream Baking Powder, as shown by Prof. Collier's examinations, is the only pure Cream Tartar Powder found free from adulteration and the highest in strength. All authorities report Dr. Price's free from Ammonia, Alum, Lime, or any othej adulterant. The purity of this ideal Powder bas never been questioned. if Indicates the Powder containing either Ammonia or Alum. -fc Indicates the Powder containing both Ammonia and Alum. While the diagram shows some of these Ammonia or Alum Powders to be of higher strength than others classed below them, it must not be taken that they possess any value. All Ammonia or Alum powders should be avoided as dangerous, no matter how high their strength.
