Many Times More ECONOMICAL TO USE than Baking Powder.

It is important that the Soda or Saleratus you use should be WHITE
and PURÈ, in common with all similar subst:ces used for food. Some
Soda may appear white when examined by itself, but a comparison with
Church & Co.'s ARM AND HAMMER BRAND will show
the difference. In making bread with Yeast, it is hest to lise about half
a teaspoonful of CHURCII & Co.'s ARM AND HAMMER BRAND SODA
OR SALERATUS at the same time, and thus make the bread rise better,
and prevent it from becoming sour, by correcting the natural acidity of
the yeast. All good cook-books recommend this.

Farmers and Dairymen should use only the ARM AND HAMMER BRAND for cleaning and keeping milk-pans c'eet and clean.

The Arm and Hammer Brand Soda or Saleratus is now being used by
Fariners, with great success, for the prevention and cure of Høg Cholera
and other diseases. Mix with animal's food.

The exhibited Soda is of leans, 1885:


To insure obtaining only the Arm and Hammer Brand Soda or Saleratus,
it is best to buy in POUND or HALF-POUND CARTOONS, which have our
name and trade-inark on them, as inferior goods are sometimes substituted
for the Arm and Hammer Brand when bought in bulk.
