Certain baking powder makers are publishing falsified extracts from the
Government reports, with r . mended analyses and certificates, wherein an
attempt is made to compare their baking powders with the "Royal," or
making bogus tests from house to house, their obvious purpose being to
counteract the recent exposures of the inferiority of their own goods arising
from their impurity, low strength, and lack of keeping qualities as shown
by the Government chemists and others.
As to whether any of these baking powders are
equal to the "Royal," the official tests clearly deter
mine. When samples of various baking powders were
purchased from the grocers, and analyzed by the United
States Government Chemists and the Chemists of State
and City Boards of Health, the reports revealed the fact
that the "Royal" contained from 28 per cent, to 60 per
cent, more leavening strength than any other cream of
tartar baking powder, and also that it was more perfectly
made, of purer ingredients, and altogether wholesome.
As these powders are sold to consumers at the same price, by the use
of the Royal Baking Powder there is an average saving of over one third,
besides the advantage of assured purity and wholesomeness of food, and of
bread, biscuit, and cake made perfectly light, sweet, and palatable advan
tages not to be had in the use of the low-grade, cheaply made baking pow
ders that contain lime, alum, r.d other impurities.

deoide the matter.
Section 13. If the person so challeng
ed shall refuse to answer fully any ques
tion touching bis qualifications as an
eleotor whioh shall be put to him, the
judges shall rejeot his vote.
Seotion H. If the challenge be not
withdrawn after the person offering to
vote shall have auswered the questions
put to him as aforesaid, the ohairman of
said judges shall admiuister to him the
the following oath:
"You do solemnly swear (or affirm)
that you are a citizen of tbe United
States, or have declared your mteutiou
to become suoh, one year next preceding
this election ; that you are of the age of
twenty one years; that you have been a
resident of this State for six months next
preceding this eleotion ; that you now
reside in this precinct ; that you have not
voted at this eleotion, and that your true
name is as you represent it to be." If
the elector only olaims the right to vote
for State, or district and State oflioers,
the oath shall be modified accordingly.
Seotion 15. Whenever any person's
right to vote shall have been ohallenged,
and he has taken the oath prescribed by
seotion U, it shall bo the duty of tbe
clerks of election to write on tbe poll
books at tbe end of suoh person's name
tha words "ohallenged and sworn," aud

tions of persons offering to vote, shall be

aooomplished tbe business that brought

i. If a person remove to any other
State, or to any of the Territories, with
the intention of making it his permaneut
bom he shall be oonsidered uud held to
have lost his residenoe in this State.
5. The place where a murriod man's
family reside shall be considered and
held to be his residence.
6. The place where an unmarried
man sleeps shall be oonsidered aud held
to be his residence.
7. If a person shall go from this State
into any other State or Territory, af1

bis residence in this State.
8. All qualified eleotors shall vote in

A Very Common Want
"Out of Borts," "distrait," "the blues,"
these are familiar appellatives for un
comfortable, undefiuable sensations, ac
companied with lassitude, nervousness,
indigestion. Poverty of the blood, to
remedy which an effective stomaohic
persistently used is the paramount need,
is conclusive evidence that the System is
insufficiently nourished beoause snd
for no other cause where organic disease
does not exist the food is not assim
ilated. Reinforce tbe flagging energies
of the stomach, reform an irregular oon
dition of the bowels, keep up a healthful
seoretion of the bile, with Hostetter's
.Stomach bitters. For oyer thirty years
this popular medicine has supplied the
oommon want of the nervous invalid, the
dyspeptic and the persons deficient in
vitality, an effioient tonic. To its power
of imparting strength is attributable its
efficacy as a preventive of malaria and
la grippe. Thoroughly effective is it too
for rheumatism, kidney complaint and

Last Sunday, "Lita" Morris, son of J.
H. Morris, a former resident of this city,
met with a serious if not a fatal accident
at Fossil. It appears that one ot the

his pistol and cartridge belt In making
the change the weapon fell, striking on
the floor in such a manner as to discharge
the contents in Morris' groin. Medical
aid has been in constant attendance, but
they have not yet been able to discover
or locate the ball. His condition is very
critical at this writing.
