Finest Bread and Cal
It is conceded that the Royal Baking Powder is t!ic
purest and strongest of all the baking powders.
The purest baking powder makes the finest, sweetest,
most delicious food.
The strongest baking powder makes the lightest food.
That baking powder which is both purest and strong
est makes the most digestible and wholesome food.
Why should not every housekeeper avail herrclf t f
the baking powder which will give her the Le:,t L'od
with the least trouble?
Dr. Haines, of Rush Medical College, Consulting
Chemist of the Chicago Board of Health, says:
is not only the purest, but the strongest baking

Dated this 5th day uf August,
liaising Calves Without Milk.
The young calf must have new milk
for the first two weeks of its life; no
other food will do. After attaining that
age it may be reared ou artificial food.
One successful substitute for milk is
hay tea. The hay about three pounds
is cut so as to get it into a kettle or
boiler, with 2J gallons of water, aud
boiled half an hour. The liquor is then
strained and returned to the kettle, and
about a teacupful each of flaxseed and
wheat middlings added. This is boiled
to a jelly and fed warm. After the calf
is two months old, a small handful of
corameal may be added with the llax
seed and middlings. Exchange.
