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. BOMKTHINO mm KW 1MB.

Men ireuerally cross their legs when there ta least pressure on their minds. Yon will 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 discussing some proposition with another man. but the Instant he becomes really in earuest and perceives something to be gained bis limbs uncross, he bends forward toward his neighbor and begins to use his hands. 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 belongs now and then a man who cannot ponder severely without making his legs express all tits emotion of thought. New York Recorder. Saperatltloa la a Metropolitan Store. 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, why not?" "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 tioner of the bug, which meanwhile had nestled In a crack in the floor. "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 tious tendencies that she brought her foot down with deadly effect, and met the in dignant ejaculations of her mates with a defiant "Well, let it rain."

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 aiou Iu this regard will b Impossible Bntil th amendment becomes an act aud the practical working of th new statute have been tested by a more or loss Intellhranl and luiDatlent oomuiU' ulty. It may not tm generally under stood that the suggested legislation hi Imperative aaa deduction from oonsld erution of what Is knowu of the con stant change ooourrlng In particle ol the human body. Each Individual I uiade op of atoms. 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 rate or marrv without delay - la Alana I'olsoaous T '' T ''This oiiection ha caused a good deal of discussion.

I was formerly corporal, in the British Murlv artillery, and on my discharge, flndluii my penslou not sufficient to keep me, I looked about for employment, . Having excellent good conduct papers I was not long In obtaining a situation as personal attendant, or what Is called body servant to a young geutle nian named Frank Hardy, the son of a wealthy Eiiultah olerayman, who was studying tor the army examination. Young Mr. Hardy was as flu a specimen ot physical manhood aa I erer set eyes upon, but be waa a living lustano of th old saylnKi "The nearer the church th further from God." Hewasnot only wild; he was licentious. When I Joined Olni even there were slgus of tbe breaking up of a magnificent constitution and powerful Intellect, though he was out twenty-six years of airs. ' In the suite ot rooms Mr. Hardy rented on Kusaell sunare, London, I occupied a like chamber at the back, connect I uk who the main rooms through the bathroom and his bedroom, which opened on to his study by a single door, aud that, by a large pair of lolilltig doors, upon th large front re ception room. I was also able to reach this fro ut room by the hall passage with out entering my master' rooms at all. lie- sides my duties ot keeping his clothe and rooms in order, prepariug 'bis toilet and looking after hi wants generally, I was expected to he la readiness at any hour of the day or night to attend upon mm. Ut Till MABTKK'S ROOM, As be generally came home iu the small hours of the morning you may guess that my office was no sinecure. On these occa sions be was more like a wild beast than a human being. I will not bother to tell how for some weeks I had noticed a re markable change coming over the young man, until in sheer self protection J bad con titled certain fears to our landlady's husband (himself an old soldier), and bad requested blm, should I at any time not appear at my usual hour, to burst open my door, for 1 should probably be In want of assistauce. I felt better after I had done this anyway. ; It was on Aug. , 18TB. I am not likely to forget tbe date, for it was one of the narrowest squeaks for wing my last day 1 ever bad. The young master bad for so me days been In a sort of sullen mood, morose and irritable, occasionally brenking out luto spasmodic pasaious and destroying whatever was within his Immediate reach. I did not ilka the prospect, and was even more anxious from the fact tbat be had. daring those days, entirely given up drink and tobacco. If he had stuck to the latter perhaps this adventure would never have happened to me. I am a great believer In tbe southing effects of nicotine, and I have seen it produce calming results of tbe most satisfactory nature upon many dangerous rabid lunatics. On tbe morning of Aug. 4 my master came borne at 3 o'clock and at ouos called upon me to attend him. I was so used to bis eccentricities that I was not very much surprised when he ordered m to bring, my iicms iron cot ueq ana nx n op in nis room. He was not feeling well, he said, and was rather afraid of sleeping alone. Of course I did as I was commanded, and in 0ve min utes I was enacouced in bis apartment. IN A MANIAC'S GRASP. I was not quit satianed with bis strange behavior nor with the peculiar way-la which h watched my every movement, and I determined to be in readiness for any emergency. It was not long before It sroae. . After assisting biio to get off bis clothes and get into bed I lay down on my own cot, and I confess to having fallen off to sleep very quickly. The awakening came with equal suddenness in this wsy. . I felt a heavy weight pressing upon me, While some one seemed to be making an effort to strangle- me. You know what a pightmars utf Well, haven't yon some times sort ot said to yourself during an in digestion dream that you knew It was only a dream and would pass awaysoonf have, and that is how I acted that night. I kind of smiled to myself, and said it had to go If I only waited long enough. Hut, somehow it did not go, Instead of going H gut great deal worse, and when at last I opened my eyes, through tbe dim light of tbe morning I saw the face of my young master glaring down at me, while with hi t hum be at my throat- be was quietly choking the life out of we, 1 bad sens enough not to make an effort to move, and then I discovered that be was sitting across my body, with bis knees upon my arms, aud I was therefore power less. What was I to dor He was grad ually bnt surely killing met Just a all these things Sashed across my mind he no ticed tbat my eye war open. "Ah!

I gave a little strqggl to put him off tbe scent! he on ly squeezed tighter and laughed. Then, with a gasp, I let my jaw drop and my limbs fall loose and limp beneath the madman. Would my trick succeed? The few seconds tbat followed my ruse passed like hours! Yesl He felt tbe difference. What would hedof JuKtwbatl hoped he would. Raised my bend and shoulders from tbe pillows, and after one mors squeese, which nearly did have tbe desired effect, Aung me back on th pillows. Hut In so doing be loosened his bold of my throat and bis knees slipped from my arms. That instant saved my life. Quicker than I can say it I was awake, slive and fighting for supremacy with a raving murderous lunatic! I bad no knowledge of how to treat such people, but self preservation Is a wonder ful teacher. With my arms free I could wrestle, and wrestle I did. By good luck or acclqeiit, n the course of (.hat struggle we came to the floor with tbe madman un lurntsuth, and then ( policed (.hut I had got him Into aa Inextricable tangle w)th the sheet. It was wound round and round him, forming a most complete strait jacket, and I was safe. All I hod to do was to sit still until the landlord come in the morning. I did not go to sleep any more that night, I can tell tell you. When Mr. Hardy's friends came and tbe doctors advised his removal to au nsylnm tbey asked me to go with blm.
