Mail Tribune 100

Oct. 28, 1914

The total registration for Jackson County for the November election is 14,266. Of this amount, 7,500 are estimated by the county clerk's office to be men, the remainder being women. Two years ago the registration was 6,500, the women not voting at that time. The registration for the primary last spring was 8,700, an increase of 3,500.

The county clerk's office expects to complete the classification of the registration as to sex and politics by the middle of the week when the work of sending out the election supplies, naming of election officers, etc., and arranging other details will be commenced.

Advertisment: A few Words in the Interest of Truth

Referring to various statements appearing in the press recently, the Royal Baking Powder Company states:

That it has no interest whatsoever in the controversy over the use of Albumen (sometimes called white of egg) in baking powder, and has not had any part in the actions before officials that have taken place in the various states;

That it believes Albumen to be entirely unnecessary and used only for deceitful purposes;

That if Albumen was a proper ingredient of baking powder or performed any legitimate function, it would have adopted it many years ago, as its cost is infinitesimal;

That it has no interest, direct or indirect, in the K.C. Baking Powder, the owners of which are reported to be opposed to the use of Albumen, nor in the Calumet or Crescent baking powders, in both of which Albumen is used; that the only baking powders in which it has any interest in the United States are its own well known brands "Royal," "Dr. Price's" and "Cleveland's," all made of Cream of Tartar.

The Company believes that the question whether Albumen is a proper ingredient for baking powder is insignificant compared with the vastly more important question as to Alum, the use of which in baking powder has been so generally condemned. It is a noteworthy fact that all baking powders containing Albumen are made of Alum.


"The women of today aren't what women used to be. They're hard. They've none of the old charm. Unsexed — that's the very way they are — unsexed."

So speaks Sir John Rhead as he and his wife sit opposite each other at the fireplace of the old home when the guests have gone after the celebration of their golden wedding anniversary in the last act of "Milestones," which comes to the Page Theater, November 2.
