' 1 As to whether any of the baking powders are equal to
the " Royal," the official tests clearly determine. When
samples of various baking powders were purchased from
the grocers, and analyzed by the United States Govern
ment 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 the others, and also that it was more per
fectly combined, absolutely pure, and altogether wholesome.
As most of these powders are sold to
consumers at the same price as the " Royal,"
by the use of the Royal Baking Powderthere
is an average saving of over one third, be
sides the advantage of assured purity and
wholesomeness of food, and of bread, bis
cuit and cake made perfectly light, sweet,
The official reports also reveal the pres
ence, in other powders, of alum, lime or
sulphuric acid, by which their use is made a matter of grave
danger to the consumer. x ;
Whenever a baking powder is sold at a lower price than
the "Royal" or with a gift, it is a certain indication that it is
made from alum, and is to be avoided under all circumstances.

As Tkough from the CntTe.
Thursday there was an affecting re
union of a mother and child after a long
separation. Twenty years ago, in Buf
falo, resided Dir. and Mrs. White and
their 5-year-old daughter. There was
trouble, and husband and wife separated.
White, retaining possession of the child,
removed to Bedford, O. There the little
one was brought up in the belief that her
mother was dead.
Tears passed away, and both White
and his wife married again. White mar
ried a Bedford woman, and there was a
large family of children. Mrs. White
became the wife of a wealthy business
man. The years brought no little ones,
and the mother's heart yearned after her
daughter Lillie. She once heard that
White had moved to Bedford, 'and after
that there were only vague and indefi
nite rumors. After a while she heard
that her daughter was dead and she gave
j' pe. Her husband started in busi
in Kansas City, Mo.
His prospects were flattering and the
pair moved there. A short time ago a
lady artist engaged in Kansas City met
the former Mrs. White. Learning that
the artist had resided in Bedford, the
mother questioned her and found that
her former husband still lived there.
Much to her joy she learned that her
daughter was not dead, but had grown
to be a handsome young woman, had
married and lived in Cleveland. Her
husband shortly afterward was called to
the east on business, and, before going,
promised to look up the daughter.
Arriving in this city he easily found
her, and , telegraphed to the anxiously
waiting mother in Kansas City, "Lilly
is here." That same afternoon the moth
er started for Cleveland. She was driven
straight to the residence of Joseph Cow
en, an employe of the Champion Spring
Bed company. He is the husband of
the long lost daughter, and they live in
Brooklyn village. A surprise here await
ed the visitor in the shape of a chubby
2-weeks-bld baby boy, who was held np
to make the acquaintance of grandma.

Gallantry of the Sioux.
A correspondent who has just returned
from Pine Ridge agency tells a story of
the visiting Sioux Indians who are now
"Beading of the reception the Indians
received in church Sunday, and the fact
that they attended the theatre Monday
evening, recalls a funny incident that
happened when they were in Chicago en
route to Washington. The manager who
has charge of the visiting Indians
thought he would amuse them by taking
them to the theatre in the evening. He
never for a moment thought that tragedy
would rouse the warlike nature ' of
which the Sioux is. so abundantly en
dowed. Well, he got them into several
boxes all right, and everything went
well until the third act.
"The play was a heavy tragedy, and
in this act the heroine was to be killed.
The minute the villain attempted to
strike the woman with a knife three of
the Sioux rose from their seats and act
ually prepared to leap over the boxes
onto th stage for the purpose of rescu
ing the heroine. The theatre was soon
in an uproar, and it was only by remov
ing the three refractory Indians from the
theatre that the actors could proceed.
That also explains why they were taken
to see a light opera in Washington. "
Russia's Watchful Eye.
There was a meeting of representative
railroad men and steamship managers in
St Petersburg to discuss the feasibility
of introducing "round trip" tickets in
the interior of Russia. . Such tickets
would be of great benefit to those who
have business in the Volga district, and
make short trips from one city to an
other by the steamers on that river, and
also to excursionists along the railroad
lines. But this measure is discounte
nanced bythe police authorities.
At present there is an officer stationed
by every ticket office who may examine
the passports of the travelers, without
whose permission no ticket can be sold.
But if round trip tickets should be is
sued, the holder of a return ticket to any
place may sell it to another person, and
the police would be unable to keep s
eye on the traveling public Exchange.
THE LONDON POLICE.
WHAT ASSISTANT DISTRICT AT
TORNEY WELLMAN OBSERVED.
The Force in the British Capital Some
thing to Be Proud Of Free from Po
litical "PulUJ Promotion Dependent
Wholly Upon Merit.
During my visit to London I Bpent con
siderable time investigating the police
force of that city.
The laistory of the London police has
yet to be written, and a very curious record
indeed would be that of the successive
changes, always in the direction of im
provement, which have been made in the
constitution, the discipline and the dress
of the metropolitan and city police since
the force, established by act 10 of George
IV, commenced duty on Sept. 29, 1839.
Although the blundering and inefficient
force of police constables had by this time
discarded their swallow tailed coats and
their stovepipe hats, the city authorities,
excepting for a very Bhort period in 1848,
hesitated to provide the force with any
weapon whatsoever excepting a lantern
and a rattle.
Even as late as 1860 the metropolitan
police force numbered only 5,300 consta
bles, although the city had over 3,000,000
inhabitants. At present its total strength
is 14,081, maintained at a cost of a little
over 41,000,000 (13,000,000). This civilian
army was practically founded by the sec
ond Sir Robert Peel while borne secretary,
and was bitterly opposed in the outset by
a large section of the public press. The
London police force, once a national scan
dal, has now become, however, the par
donable pride of every inhabitant of the
city. : '
At the head of this army of 14,000 police
is a sinle commissioner called the chief
commissioner of police. He is appointed
by the queen and holds his office for life.
A general in the army of twenty years'
standing is always selected for the place
some soldier who has distinguished, him
self for his executive ability. The present
chief commissioner is Sir Edward Brad
ford, K. C. B.. K. C. & T., who organized
the king of Persia's cavalry some years
ago. His salary is 2,500 or $13,500. This
commissioner has the appointment of three
assistant commissioners at a salary of
1,500 (17,500) and allowances of about
500 a year extra. These assistants are
chosen from the ranks of barristers who
have distinguished themselves for upward
of twelve years in the criminal courts.
Next in rank come four chief constables,
who likewise must be chosen from the list
of army officers in good standing.
There is strictly no politics in any of
these appointments, and they are all for
life or during good behavior, it would
seem fitting to put an experienced army
officer at the head of such a body of men.
and especially fitting to join with him as
his assistants three experienced criminal
In addition to the 14,000 uniformed police
there are GOO detectives and 500 mounted
police. The department breed all their
own horses, and they board la, barracks
all bachelors belonging to the force at
one shilling a week.
The pay of an ordinary constable is from
thirty to thirty-six shillings (t?.50 to (9) a
week. The detectives or inspectors receive
185 (1925) a year, and 5 ($25) advance for
each year of service for ten years and then
10 advance for the next fifteen years. Aft
er twenty-five year' service they are pen
sioned for life on two-thirds pay. The ser
geants of police receive forty-five shillings
($11.25) a week and are only chosen rom
the ranks of constables. Everyone con
nected with the force, excepting the com
missioner and his assistants and the four
chief constables, must rise in the service
from the lowest ranks.
No ordinary policeman is allowed to
carry a revolver excepting in the suburbs,
where revolvers are handed to the men
when going out on duty and are inspected
each morning to see if any shot has been
fired. Each officer must likewise report
each use of his stick or truncheon. There
is almost no drunkenness found among
the force. Most cf the men are recruits
from the country and are farmers' sons.
Any policeman found intoxicated off serv
ice is put back from two to three years In
rank and pay, and if found drunk while on
service is discharged at once. ,
Any one visiting London for the first
time is stunned on week days by the tour-
billion of movement in its streets and the
constant eddies at all the great crossings
in the whirlpool of its business life such as
no other city in the world can show. It is
estimated that over 20,000 vehicles pass the
Bank of England each day. Such a thing
as a block or stoppage in the stream of ve
hicles for more than a moment is never al
lowed to occur, thanks to the skillful man
agement of the police under the present
perfect system. There is an officer at
nearly every street corner, and any driver
or cabman who advances a yard beyond
the upraised hand of the officer may expect
to have bis number taken and is certain to
have a two pound fine to pay. If he drives
on his license is forfeited. This is not a
rule simply, for the law is invariably en
forced, and the consequence is absolute
order and freedom from blocks.
The police seldom use force. It is not
necessary in a city where the laws are en
forced with unfailing promptness and cer
tainty. In consequence perhaps the most
unruly class of. men in the world the
London cabbies stand in absolute awe of
the police. This feeling is shared equally
by all tradespeople. I was assured on the
best authority that there was not a dis
orderly house or policy shop in the en
tire city of London with its C90 square
miles and its streets and roads measuring
6,600 miles in aggregate length and over
5,000,000 inhabitants. It is com monly said
of London that there are more Scotchmen
there than in Edinburgh, more Irish than
in Dublin, more Jews than in Palestine
and more Roman Catholics than in Rome.
Nothing is allowed to be sold in the way
of either food or drink after 12 o'clock, and
every public restaurant or bar must be
closed by 13:30. This rule is kept to the
very minute, or the license is forfeited.
Nobody once convicted of even a misde
meanor can obtain a license for a bar or
public bouse in London.
The fidelity and bravery of the London
police were well shown in 1884 when a
couple of officers on duty at the parlia
mentary building discovered a lighted
dynamite cartridge in the hallway directly
under the hall in which the house of com
mons was sitting at the time. The two
men seized the cartridge together and ran
with it burning in their hands out into the
open courtyard, where it exploded. Both
nien are crippes for life. Both are deaf and
blind, and one has lost his reason. ' They
were at once promoted to the rank of ser
geants and pensioned for life. One was
summoned to Windsor castle, where the
queen herself decorated him with the Al
bert medal. The officer who was confined
to the hospital was then visited by the
queen in person, who presented Mm with
the Albert medaL Francis L. Wellman in
New York Herald. .
The well known epicurean taste of
the French people seems to have driven
some of them to their wits' end in order
to satisfy the appetite in an inexpensive
manner. In 1803 a Frenchman invented
and obtained ay,patent on a process for
making sparkling wine or champagne
at a price bringing it within the reach
of all. His process is to take a bottle of
ordinary still w ine and pour into it a
certain quantity of "Dutch bronie
powder." The waiter then is instructed
to shake the bottle violently before serv
ing it to the customer. This, the in
ventor Bays, "will disturb the brilliant
particles of powder, causing them to cir
culate through the wine, giving it the
appearance of a high grade sparkling
wine." Dutch bronze is chemically
known as bimuriate of stannan, and ia
poisonous. It is that substance in mauve
ink which so quickly eats away a steel
pen. New York News.
Pure Food In Congress. ,
The act of Congress authorising the
examination ot the baking powders has
resulted in a most unprecedented com
pliment to the Royal Baking Powder.
The tests were made in the government
laboratory at Washington, and the offi
cial report shows that the Royal is su
perior to all others in leavening strength
being over 30 per cent, above the av
erase. The report also shows the parity
of the Royal Powder and the wholesome
ness of its ingredients.
This is nrobablv the blithest compli
ment of an official character ever paid to
a proprietary article, though no more
than the great army of baking powder
consumers would expect in behalf of
their old friend and favorite.
