Royal for Royal only.
Royal Baking Powder is shown by actual
chemical tests absolutely pure and 27 per cent,
greater in strength than any other brand.
Many grocery stores have recently ' been
stocked with second-class brands of baking
powder, which are urged upon consumers at the
price of the high-cost, first-class Royal.
These powders cost from 8 to 30 cents a
pound less than the Royal, besides being of 27
per cent less strength. If they are forced upon
you, see that you are charged a correspondingly
lower price for them.

Johnson was allowed tho privilege of

to see and converse with the great au

sation about books and the universi
ties, tho king asked him if lie were
writing anything. lie answered that
ho was not, for lie had pretty well told
the world what ho knew, and must
now read to acquire more knowledge.
The king replied: "I do not think you
borrow iimeli from anybody." Thou
Johnson siiid he thought he had already
donohis part as a writer. "I should
have thought so, too, if you had not
written so well, retorted Ins majesty.
Johnson observed that "No man could
have paid a handsomer compliment,
and it was fit for a king to pay. ' When
some one asked him if ho made any re
ulv to tho kins's speech, lie answered:
"Sir, when the king had said it, it was
to be so. It was not for me to banuy
civilities with my sovereign." Cham

When I was a boy, in Shelby county, I
went one day to Mr. John Cooper's shoo
maker's shop to bo measured for a pair
tif shoes, as the custom of the country
then was. ilu and his little son Robert
lived alone in the woods iu a house of
ne room, which was dwelling and

Kaylor, about his age, came in, and Bob
Joyfully exclaimed, "Come, L'ncle Gid,
we've got some potatoes, aud there is
plenty of salt
It seemed strange to me to see how
eagerly they roasted and ate the potatoes
and how happy they were. Tliey lived
happily, and yet this was all their liv
ing. 1 have repeated this Btory fre
quently during my protieroas days as a
great wonder, never dreaming that it
would become my own reality, as it now
is, and 1 am happy too.
A Gcrmuu woman .who could 'not
speak a word of English came into my
ofllce one day with one of my German
circulars in her hand, which Mr. Coop
bad given her in Saxony. 1 sent her out
into the country with a German mer
chant to look at lands, and that day she
bought a farm. The next day 1 made
the deeds, aud she became tho owner
and moved in. A neighbor soon after
Ward told me that it cost that lady
nothing to live. He says she put. a tin
cup of coffee on the stove and a tin cup
of cornmeal mush, and that is all her liv
ing, but she is getting rich. 1 thought that
very strange, too, never thinking that 1
should live so, but 1 do just that thing
now, having remembered hearing how
When I lost all my money and yot
must live, I rented a room 14 by 10 feet,
with heat, for $" por month not a very
good room and not very well furnished,
but comfortable, aud respectable, and
there are plenty of them at that price.
I bought an outfit as follows: An iron
handy lamp, 75 cents; three seamless
pint tin cn, 13 tents; ono do. quart,
13 cents; one half gallon tin cup, with
cover, 10 cents; three bowls, 15
cents; cup and saucer, 10 cents; gallon
glass oil can, 35 cents; oil, 15 cents;
spoon, 10 cents; total outfit, $3. Then I
bought one month's provisions as fol
lows; Half bushel potatoes, U5 cents;
ten pounds cornmeal, SO cents; three
pounds Graham Hour, 15 cents; one
pound ground coffee, 25 cents; eight
pounds granulated sugar, i)C cents; one
pound lard, 10 cents; coarse salt, 3 cents;
total for the month, f 1.40.
1 am a good, hearty eater, and am full
fed and live well, and am thankful for
it, but 1 cannot eat all of my mouth's
provision. There is always a considera
ble amount over every month, aud 1 live
well too. In the morning 1 light my
handy lamp, till my seamless pint tin
cup with water, put a tcaspoonful of
ground coffee into it, put it over the
lamp, and turn another tin cup, bottom
'upward, over it for a cover. In ten
Uiinutos there is a pint enp of good, hot
coffee. Whilo the coffee is boiling I put
a little water into tho half gallon cup,
not more than one-eighth full, and then
fill the quart tin cup about one-fourth
full of cornmeal, add a little salt, then
set this cup into the half gallon cup. aud
fill np the quart cup full of water and
stir up the meal well. Jain in tho han
dle of the quart cup so that it will go
into the larger cup. As soon as the cof
fee comes off set the mush on the lump.
Stir it occasionally, and when it thickous
aud tills up the cup take it off.
1 buy a loaf of bread for four cents
for Sunday, and melt a little lard aud

plenty to eat. Many others in this city,

Kever Lift a Grounded Wire.
It is always best to avoid danger if
possible, therefore there is one rule
which ought to be taught in every
school in the United Suites, and that
is, never lift a wire off the ground. As
long as it is on the ground it is harm
less, no mutter what pressure may be
on it The moment it leaves the
ground it may be dangerous. If it is
in the way of traffic you can safely
pull it across tho street with your fool,
then put your foot on it and bold it
on the ground and itcannot hurt you,
but do uot lift it Never touch a wire
tied on a pole. It may not be danger
ous, but it is like the unloaded gun,
it may kill you. New York Telegrim.

The uiuking of a thermometer may be
either a delicate scientific operution, or 1
cue of the simplest tasks of the skilled
uiechauic, accordiug to the sort of titer-,

sensitive and minutely accurate bistro-'

Idly, though always carefully. The
method of manufacture has beeu so sys
tematized within a few years that the
very cheapest thermometer should not
vary more than a fraction of a degree
from the correct point
Whether the thermometer is to be
charged with mercury orulcohol; wheth
er it is to be mounted iu a frame of
wood, pressed tin or brass, the process
is substantially the same. Mercury is
generally used for scientific instruments,
but most makers prefer alcohol, because
it is cheaper. The alcohol is colored
red with an auiliue dye which does not

cut. these tubes to tho proper lengths,
and with his gits jot and blowpipe makes
the bulb on tho lower end. The bulbs
are then filled with colored alcohol, and
the tulies stand for twenty-four hours.
On the following day another work
man holds each bulb in turn over a gas
jet until the colored fluid, by its expan
sion, entirely fills tho tube. It then
goes bitck into the hands of the glass
blower. He closes tho upper end and
turns the tip backward to make the lit
tle glass hook which will bolp keep the
tube in place in the framo.

The tutes now rest until some hun

made is the1 freezing point. 8-i (legs.
Fahrenheit This is found by plunging
the bulbs into melting snow. No other
thermometer is needed for a guide, for
melting snow gives invariably the exact
freezing point This is an unfailing tost
for any thermometer whose accuracy
may be suspected. But melting snow is
not always to be hud, and a little ma
chine resembling a sausage grinder is
brought into use. This machine shavos
a block of ico into particles, which an
swer the purpose as well as snow.
Whon the bulbs have been long enough
in the melting snow a workman takes
them one by one from their icy bath,
seizing each so that his thumb nail
marks the exact spot to which tho fluid
bus fallen. Here ho makes a scarcely
perceptible mark upon the glass with a
tine file, and goes on to the next
The tubes, with the freezing point
marked on each, now go into the hands
of another workman, who plunges thorn,
bulb down, into a vessel tilled with
witter kept constantly at 84 degs.
A standard thermomoter attached to
the inside of this vessel shows that the
temperature of tho wator is correct

is then attached to each tube, on which
its number is written for, owing to un
avoidable variations in the bore of the
tube, each one varies slightly from the
MARKINO TUB CASES.
With its individuality thus established
the tube goes into the hands of a mark
er, who fits its bulb and hook into the
frame it is to occupy, and makes slight
scratches on the framo corresponding to
the 33, 01 and 90 degree marks on the
tube. The frame hits a number corre
sponding with the nuuibor of the tube,
and the tube is laid away in a ruck amid
The frame, whether it be wood, tin
or brass, goes to the gauging room,
where it is laid upon a stooply sloping
table, exactly in the position marked for
a thermomoter of that size. The 03, 04
and HO degree marks must correspond
with the marks upon the table. If they
do not, the error in marking is detected
and the frame is sent bock for correc
tion. A long, straight bar of wood or metal
extends diagonally across the table from
the lower right hand corner to the upper
left hand corner. On the right this
works upon a pivot and on the left it
rest, in a ratchet, which lets it ascend
or descend only one notch at a time.
That notch marks the exact distance of
i degs. W ith the three scratches already
made for a basis the marker could hardly
make a mistake in the degrees if be tried.
The marks made upon the frame or
case are all made by hand with a geo
metric pen and India ink if the frame is
of wood, and with steel die. if it is of
metal The tube bearing the correspond
ing number is next attached to the frame,
and the thermometer is ready for the
market without further testing. Some
makers use only two guide marks, but
the best makers use three.
In tho process of manufacture the
ordinary thermometer goes through the
hands of nineteen workmen, half of
whom are often girls and women. Some
of the larger concerns in and near New
York produce several hundred thousand

of them the purchaser may see. if be
