The United States Agricultural Department
has issued (and circulates free) a valuable report
giving the results of elaborate experiments made
by and under the direction of the Department,
which show the great saving from baking at home,
as compared with cost of buying at the bakers.
All bread, cake, biscuit, crullers, etc., are very much
fresher,cleaner,cheaper and more wholesome when
made at home with Royal Baking Powder.
