The difference of cost between a
good and a poor baking pow
: der would not amount for a fam
ily's supply to one dollar a year.
The poor powder would cost
many times this in doctors' bills.
Royal Baking Powder may cost a little
more per can, but it insures perfect,
wholesome food. In fact, it is more
economical in the end, because it goes
further in leavening and never- spoils
Royal Baking Powder used always in
making the biscuit and cake saves both
health and money.
You cannot, if you value good health, afford
to use cheap, Jow-grade, alum baking pow
ders. They are apt to spoil the food; they
do endanger the health. All physicians will
tell you that alum in food is deleterious.

The Mlsslenary'a Little Joker.
A native Maori chieftain, the de
scendant of cannibal kings, is now com
pleting his medical education in Chi
cago. Cannibalism ended in his tribe,
he eays, when Bishop Selwyn converted
his grandfather; but he tells some stap
les of it which have a distinctly humor
rous flavor. - For instance: It is said
that onoe a chief captured a missionary
who was anything but a toothsome
morsel, as he was old and thin and
looked as if his flesh would be tough.
The missionary warned the ohief that
he would not make a good dinner, and
pulling up his trousers, cut a slice off
the calf of his leg and. offered it to the
chief. The - chief tasted it, said he
didn't like it, and passed it to a sub
chief. The sub tasted it, made a wry
" faoe, and passed it on. The next man
who took a bite of it spat it out. The
missionary was released. After he had
gone it was discovered that he wore a
cork leg. - ' :
Use of Great Name.
Here's a tip for some of our old
friends who have big names and need
a little ready money: Turner Beall,
president of the Produce Exchange
Trust Company used to be seoretray of
the Produce Kxcange and of the New
York Southern Society. Among the
men of his acquaintance he admires
none so much as he does Colonel Wil
liamde Hertburne Washington. A lit
tle while ago he asked Colonel Wash
ington if he might use his name in a
financial transaction. Having implicit
faith in Beall, the colonel consented,
and was pleased to receive a short time
afterward a check for $15,000, his
hare of a deal made by his friend on
the strength of the name of Washing
ton. - "
The Elder's Inspiration.
At the close of a forenoon session of
a ministerial conference, in announcing
the opening subject for the afternoon,
the presiding officer said: "Elder H.
will present a paper on 'The Devil.' "
Then he added, earnestly: "Please
be prompt in attendance, for Brother
H. has a carefully prepared paper and
Is full of his subject." And the
Homiletic Review says that it was
some minutes before the presiding offi
cer understood the laughter which fol
lowed his remarks.
Cooked Towel. In Vienna.
One of the best known citizens of
Santa Clara, who has been along while
Europe, brings back a number of funny
stories about Vienna.
- "In that city, " he says, "poker and
cocktails are playing the duce with
men and women, especially these pre
pared cocktails. I was in a Viennese
liquor place where one of the men
spoke a little English.
'"Buy a bottle of cooked towels?' he
asked me. v .
" 'Gracious, what is that?'
, " 'Not know cooked towels? -Surely
monsier is an American?'
" 'I am.' '".
" 'Why cooked towels is the name of
your drink. The great American

" 'Do you mean cocktails?' I asked.

- " 'We call these cocktails, my friend. '

The obsequious person who seeks fees
from travelers by pretending to mis
take them for noblemen occasionally
meets one who does not fall into the
trap. The following example is taken
from an English paper: An English
gentleman of somewhat imposing per
sonal appearance had a door opened for
him at the Paris opera house by an
usher, who bowed low and said: "The
door is open, prince." The English
man glanced at him, and, without ex
tending the expected fee, sipmly said:
"Thank you very much, viscount."

ACTIVITY IS WIDESPREAD.
Tolume and Value Testify to Prevailing
Prosperous Conditions.. '
Bradstreet's says: Trade activity is
widespread, all volume and value testi
fying to prevailing prosperous condi
tions. Only good reports are received
from distributive ' trade centers, and
some markets report fall demand as
holding ' out longer than - expected,
Railway earnings, bank clearings, re
turns and quotations of staple prices
are all encouraging, pointing as they
do to a maximum volume of business
for this period of the year.; Crop re
turns for October bear our earlier im
pressions of shortened yields of most
leading agricultural products.. . Expec
tation of more moderate yields of lead
ing cereals is not confined to this coun
try; the world's wheat crop will admit
tedly be smaller, and rye, barley and
oats yields are not expected' to be so
large as a year ago. The higher range
of prices of all staples, and particularly
of agricultural products, will furnish
a profitable balance of producers.
The liberality of foreign demand is
perhaps, best known in the September
report of exports of leading products.
Shipment of breadstuffs are as large as
those of August, and there was natur
ally a heavy gain in-cotton exports,
which are doubled those of the same
month a year ago. Totals of leading
exports show an increase of 23 per cent
over September, 1896, but a decrease
of 8.5 per cent from . September 1897.

a resident ol Salem, Ore., says :
"For oyer two years my daughter
bad been deollnlng from a strong,
healthy, rosy-cheeked girl to a pale
weak and helpless Invalid She
was afflicted with terri ble headaches,
and gradually grew weaker and more
languid, apparently without eause.
I tried several doctors, butall without
avail. Finally, to please a friend, I
bought a box of Dr. Williams' Pink
Fills for Pale People, and to our sur
prise, before It was nsed her head
aches ceased, the color began to re
turn to her cheeks and lips and her
strength began to assert itself. I
bought Ave boxes more, nnd by the
time she bad finished them she was
completely restored, and to-day she
is a robust, rosy, healthy girl Instead
of a pals, tired and sickly one."
