The Sham and the Real.
Every good thing hfis its imitators, every genuine article
ha counterfeits. The Ammonia and Alum Baking Powders
sold over the counters are no more like Dr. Price's Cream
Baking Powder, than the paste is like thereal diamond, or a
counterfeit is like one of the old master's genuine paintings.
When greedy and merciless manufacturers claim their
adulterated and harmful baking powders are as good as Dr.
Price's, they know they are not telling the truth. These
people know they are destroying the stomachs and the com
plexion of the consumers, and there are many grocers reconv
mending such? powders; over Jheir counters- knowing same
to be injurious and worthless simply to make a large profit.
Dr. Priw, a concientious physician, has spent a lifetime
In perfecting and popularizing his Cream Baking Powder,
the only Pare" Cream iTartar Powder now to be obtained.
Multitod;s of imitators all over the land have sprung up,
not to imitate the purity of Price's Cream Baking Powder, .
but to see how cheap they could make their counterfeits and
hoodwink the public.
i Some use Ammonia and others Alum, but all these shams
cry in chorus, "Buy this, its just as good as Dr. Price's and
much cheaper. '
Price's Cream Baking Powder is the standard for purity
and perfection the world over, and is beyond comparison.
Dr. Price stands for Pure Food and a foe to all shams.

Men ireuerally cross their legs when there

not very often find a man actually enxased
in business with his legs crossed. The
limbs at those times are straigbter than al
any other, because the mind and body
work together. A man engaged in audit
ing accounts will seldom cross his legs;
neither will a man who is writing an arti
cle or who ia employed in any manner
where his brain actively engaged.
' - When at work in a sitting posture the
limbs naturally extend to the floor in a
perfectly straight line. A man may cross
his legs if ha is sitting in an office chair

But these observations are made of man
kind in general. There are particular cases
that are otherwise. There an certain men
of distinguished talent who, when en
gaged in literary work, twist their legs into
intricate coils. One of the moat eminent
dramatists iu this country never abandons
himself to deep thought without contort
ing his limbs, which are long and slender,
into a kind of angular scrollwork nnder
the table. Another man, whose poems ap
pear most frequently in the magazines,
seems actually to wring bis emotions out
of his legs, as if they were sponges sopped
in the divine afflatus.
However, these are exceptional cases of
mannerisms by which particular men of
brains are insensibly affected. Some men
twist their beards when tbey are in deep
thought, others scratch their heads ab
stractedly, while others again chew their
finger nails. To this absent mimledgeaus

There was a commotion in. one of the
large dry goods stores up town Thursday
morning. It was caused by six or eight
hysterical shop girls, and was observed by
two customers who happened to be near
the linen counter. The commotion was
started by the discovery of a croton bug on
the counter. .The girl who discovered it
quietly brushed it off on the floor, whereat
another girl started to step on it.
"Oh, don't!" screamed the first girl fran
tically, "You must never kill a croton bug
that way." . '
"No! nol no! Neverstep on a croton bug,"
exclaimed three or (our voices in unison,
and several hands were stretched out to
pall back the daring girl. She paused and
impatiently asked, "For goodness salt,
"Because if you step on a croton bug it
will rain all the week," said one of the girls
in an impressive tone of voice.
"Oh, pshawl" said the would be execu

"That's sol Ves, indeed. I never knew
the sign to fail," insisted three of the girls
excitedly,, as they gently endeavored to
draw the skeptical girl back to her post of
duty behind the eou nter. But she was un
convinced, and her hatred of croton bngs
was so much stronger than ber supersti

SEVEN YEARS AND DIVORCE,
A Chleaso Lawyer's Idea, Which Will
Be. Ragardaw as Original. .
The Chicago attorney of cleutifJo
turn of uilnd who evolved the lile of
what Is known as the tewn ypw amend
mont to the divorce law, may or may
not have simplified one of the greatest
social problonis. An absolute oonclu

statute have been tested by a more or

and each day soma of these atoms are
oast off to be replaced by others from
the food we eat, the water we drink
and even the air we breathe. Miss
Jones, though perhaps quite aa charm
ing a she was a week ago, 1 not en
tirwly the same person, nor I Mr. Smith
the same young man he was. Each
has lost a portion of the body and each
has gained an equivalent.
There is the same general contour as
before, but there Is a slight difference
In material In course of time till
change will be complete. Every recant
atom of Mlsa Jone or Mr. Smith will
have gone out into the great world and
new atoms will have taken their re
spective places. Miss J ones and Mr.
Smith will be new people: ' - -
The consensu of learned opinion ia
that the body change entirely ouce in
every seven years. , Now, upposevMr.
Smith and Miss Jone to wed. Mr.
8mith has sworn to cherish the lady
who has just become his wife, not some
other woman, and, vice versa, Mrs.
Smith, nee Jones, ha made pledges of
equal solemnity and Import to love
none other than the man beside ber.
For a time it b all right, that is, rela
tively so, but at the eud of a year only
six-sevenths of the present Mrs. Smith
remain, while Mr. Smith ha suffered
an equal variation. , - ,
At the end of seven year Mrs. Smith
is not the same woman Smith married,
nor Is he the same man whom she prom
ised to cleave to. There is not a particle,
not one jot or tittle, remaining about
either of the couple who were married.
Clearly their relationship is scandalous,
and something should be done about It.
To remedy tbe evil the amendment to
tbe divorce law make a separation at
tbe end of seven yean permissible if
not mandatory. : ' - '
Of course it is claimed by the oppo
nents of the proposed legislation that
neither Mrs. Smith nor Mr. Smith can
properly, be deemed unfaithful, since
neither longer exists, and the argument,
it must be admitted, has it force. But,
admitting tbe assumption, who are the
two people at preseut living together
nnder the name of Smith, and what ex
cuse have they for the relation now
existing? Should not they either sepa
