Hot Griddle Cakes.
Dr. Price's Cream Caking Powder possesses a peculiar
merit not approached by that of any other baking: powder.
It produces the hot buckwheat, Indian or wheat cakes, hot
biscuit, doughnuts, waffles or muffins. Any of these tasteful
things may be eaten when hot with impunity by persons of
the most delicate digestive organs. Dr. Price's Cream Bak
ing Powder leavens without firmcntation or decomposition.
In its preparation none but the purest of cream of tartar, so-
da, etc. is used, and in such exact equivalents as to always
guarantee a perfectly neutral result, thereby giving the natu
ral and sweet flavor peculiar to buckwheat and other flour
that may be used, the natural flavor so much desired and ap
prcciated by all. The oldest patrons of Dr. Prices powder tell
the story, that they can never get the same results f rom any
other leavening agent, that their griddle cakes, biscuits, etc.
are never so light and never taste so sweet or so good as
when raised with Dr. Prices

I mnst add a word abont the paper in
whose interest this donphty lady report

Paper was founded a little over year
ago mainly throngh the efforts of Miss
Henrietta Mnller, formerly a memtier o
the London school board, and still active
in various public ways. This newspaper
holds a untitle position twing written,
printed, published and edited wholly by
women. It is to be hoped, since it speaks
out bravely on must matters, that its
readers are not entirely confined to the
feminine sex. That The Penny Paper
has been a signal success, in a financial
way, cannot be doubted, for some months
ago it doubled its size without increas
ing its price, and that cause aud sign of
newspaper prosperity, the advertising
column, lengthens week by week. Lady
Mora Profitable Work Than Painting-.
There is a jeweler's window on Broad
way, just above Tiffany's, which attracts
a good deal of attention. Tho trinkets
shown in it are beautiful, bnt this is not
uncommon; the noticeable feature ia
rather the skill with which they are dis
played. The softest, most exquisite col
ore are chosen as backgrounds, and
against silk or'brocade or airy gauze the
Bashing gems are wonderfully combined.
I have not passed this particular window
in two years without stopping to look at
it, but it was not until yesterday that I
learned, so to speak, its history. The
window dresser's position in all large city
establishments is important and well
The dresser attached to this jewelry
house fell ilL and in his absence a young
woman, who sometimes brought ainted
plairaea and other trifles for sale, asked
to be allowed to experiment. Permis
sion was given without mticn enttiuta
asm, but the results were snch that the
dresser had to seek another situation on
recovery. Since that time the young
artist has given every Monday to a fresh
design for the jeweler's window, and it
pays her much better than plaque paint
ing. Window drewing is a Irasineft

one in which it might be supiioHed their
taste would come excellently in play.

The Feminine Shirt.
The shirt has come to stav. A month
ago it was regarded as a whim of the
season; now it is established in favor
and considered an indispensable feature
of a well dressed woman s wardrobe.
Heretofore Dr. Mary Walker had sole
claims on the stiff shirt bosom. Later
came Mrs. Jeannette Tburber in her
tweed cutaway coat, jauntily buttoned
over a waistcoat, aud soft finished shirt,
aud from the date of the American op
era to the last gasp of the Italian school
she remained the one devotee of the fem
inine shirt in New York society. Now
all the tailor made girls in town are
one np in stiff bosoms, standing collars
and long cuffs, and the old established
shirt makers have been called upon to
make to measure the nether garment so
long the undisputed property of men.
The result is a lady s shirt as snug
fitting as a glove and as comfortable as a
fichn, which under the lightest tailor
made bodice does not show a crease. By
means of darts the nsnal baginess at
the sides is done away with, and but for
the draw string at the waist might be
appropriated, by the men. New York

who are hungry fur information on this

thouuli the dog has asma-latcd with man
for the last live or six thousand years, he

Impossible to ascertain whether or not a
dug has actually got hydrophobia. Some
canines are addicted to fits which are often
mistaken tor hydrophobia. Frothing at
the mouth is no sure sign, for a dog may
froth worse than a Coney Island glass of
brer, and yet not lie half as mad as the
Binn that tries to drink it. -riroitonioiiu
as map ixmjs.
Hydrophobia is a disease full of mystery.
A man has Iweti bitten by a dug that was
unmistakably hydrophobic, and yet the
man did not go mad at all. On the other
band, a man has lavn bitten by a dou that
showed no symptoms whatever of hydro-
phooia, yet, tiererthtdcaa, the bitten man
gut so mad that, meeting the owner of tbe
dog three weeks afterward, he seixed him
by the collar and wrapiwd him around a
ttdeKraph Kile several consecutive times.
A very queer case occurred in Texas. A
gentleman was out walking with his
mother-in-law for his pleasure. They were
attacked by a rabid dog. Such animals
are absolutely destitute of tear. But the
queerest feature was that the man suf
fered intensely. It required the strongest
opiates to restrain him, ami even then his
cries of anguish could be beard for blocks
The man bad not been bitten at all at
least, not by the dog neither had his
mother-in-law, but the dog tore to pieces a
valuable shawl worth seventy five dollars
the lady was wearing, and she gnvo her
son-in-law to understand that she expected
htm to buy her a new one. I be man was
of a selfish disposition, and the idea of
squandering on his mother In-law the
Dioney be hail laid aside for clxars made
bim almost frantic with grief. Dr. Spiuka
and other distinguished specialists have
declared this to be one of the most remark
able eas on record.
Hydrophobia is a dreadful thing. The
meaning of the word is "dread of wiittr."
ho doubt 1'a.stcur of Pans and tiibier

The person who has a ilng for a pet has
to run tbe risk of the animal going mad.
Instead of coining up smiling and fcnliiiK
