A nuisance that troubled England fifty yeara ago is novr rapidly spreading in tbis country, that is putting Aluin in the bread we eat. This question is causing a great deal of discussion at me present moment, as it is revealed that alum is being used as a substituto for cream of tartar in bakiug powders. A story is told that a very large percentage of the baking powers sold on the market contain either alum or ammcnia, and many of them contain both these pernicions drugs. Much timely alarm is feit at the wholesale use oí aium in oread, biscuit and pastry. To young ebildren, growing girls, persons of weakly frame alum bread eaten rnorning, noon and evening is the most harmful. It is the small qunutities taken at every meal that do the miachief. Alum is cheap, costiug but two or three oents a pound while oream of tartar costa 30e. and the high price of cream of tartar has led cheap bakiug powder to be made of alum. If the reader wants to know something of the corrosive qualities of alum let him touch a p:ece to his tongue tlien rerlect how it acts on the tender delicate coats of the stomnch.

Dr. Lorimer, of Boston, tells a reporter of this utterance by Spurgeon: "I do not like a amall church," he said. "It is like being in a rowboat. If you go to move about you are likely to upset and swamp the whole machine. A big church, on the other hand, was like an ocean ateamer, on which one could walk about without fear of overturning anything or of interference from deacons or any one else."
