The New Bread.
T) OY AL unf enneuled bread, made without
. yeast, avoiding the decomposition produced
in the flour by yeast or other baking powder;
peptic, palatable and most healthful ; may be
eaten warm and fresh without discomfort, which
is not true of bread made in any other way.
Can lie made only with Royal Baking Powder.
Receipt for Making One Loaf.
"NE quart (lour, I teuspoonful iuoto or loss according to the brand
salt, half a tcospoonful sugar,
a heapingtenspoonf uls Royal Baking
Powder, half medium-sized cold
boiled potato, and water. . SiCt to
gether thoroughly flour, salt, sugar,
and baking powder ; rub i:i the
potato; add sufficient water to mix
smoothly and rapidly into a stiff
batter, about as soft as or pound
cake; about a pint of water to a
quart of flour will be required
Note. It is necessary to follow, precisely, the above directions, even to the
size of the pan. Observe that water should never be added until the pow
der has been thoroughly mixed with the flour in a dry state.
Perfect success can he had only with the Royal Baking Powder, because it is
the only powder in which the ingredientsare prepared so as to give that continu
ous action necessary to raise the larger bread loaf.
The nutty flavor noticeable in this bread is due to the fact that no acid except
that derived from the grape is used in the Royal Baking Powder.

"When I was about thirty," he con

small town in a southern state, and be

first the agreeable recognition I expect

of a fellow who made himself so ob
Boiious that one day 1 slapped his jaws.
This brought all the respectable people
of the community over to my side, and I
was feeling pretty, good for three orfour
days, when the bottom was knocked out
of it all by my receiving a challenge
from Mr. Blatherskite. If there was
anything more than another that Ididn't

Tit- Vanishing Couple.
A fashion .safe to stamp a young girl
in generj society as but ill equipped
with knowledge of good form is that of
"vanishing" in company with her at
tendant after a dance and remaining in
unfrequented corners until remark is
thereby created. Such is the young wo
man whose chaperon is in continual spec
ulation as to her whereabouts or else in
active exercise to Hud her. She is no
doubt often innocent of intention to of
fend, bat at large and mixed entertain
ments the better part of wisdom in a wo
man is to keep in view of her fellows.
A witty Frenchwoman, Mme. de (Jira
din, once wrote: "Amuse yourselves, 0
young beauties, hut flutter your wings
in the broad light of day. Avoid shad
ows in which suspicion hides." The
"vanishing woman" act should be lim
ited in Derformance to a nlutfnrm in f nil
view of the audience. The prompt re
turn of a young woman to the side or
vicinity of her chaperon after dancing is
not only a graceful and well bred action,
but affords an opportunity to the man,
who too often is embarrassed in this re
spect, to withdraw and fulfill some other
engagement. Ladies' Home Journal.

A practical joke was played by an ex

some of his old companions in arms. He
had a company of friends at his country
place, near Richmond, and one evening a

The Resurrect Ioh Hone,
Throughout the Middle Ages it wan be
lieved that there exisw in man a bone im
ponderable, ineotriictible, incombustible,
the uecessary nucleus of the resurrection
body. Belief in a resurrection of the physi
cal body, despite St. Paul's Kpistle to the
Corinthians, bad beeu incorporated into
the formula made many centuries after bis
time, and called the Apostles' Creed, and
was held throughout Christendom, "at
ways, everywhere, and by all."
This hypothetical bone was therefore
belli in great veneration, and many anato
mist sought to discover it; butVesalius,
revealing so much else, did not find it, and
was therefore suspected of a want of proper
faith. He contented himself with saying
inac ne ten- tne question regarding the ex
istence of such a bone to the theologians.
He could not lie, he did not wish to fight
the Inquisition, and thus he fell under
Tbe strength of this theological point
may be judged from the fact that no less
eminent a surgeon than Biolan consulted
the executioner to find out whether, when
be burned a criminal, all tbe parts were
consumed, and only then was the answer
received which fatally undermined this
superstition. Yet in 1089 we find it still

human body constantly undergoes a series
of changes, so that all its particles are re

from tbe theologians, who saw in this
statement danger to the doctrine of the
resurrection of tbe body, that for the sake
of peace he struck out bis argument on
this subject from his collected works.

In the back yard tho little boy showed uka
big tree planted by Washington himself.
Washington, Jefferson and Monroe planted
all the large trees iu Virginia, with the ex
ception or three. On tbe trunk of this tree
are two large iron staples or bandies, now al
most buried iu the trunk. . The little mulatto
boy says they were probably driven iu there
for the English to tie their horses to when
they came to Washington's headquarters to
surrender; or perhaps iu ufter years slaves
were tied to these big iron bandits wheu
they were whipped. Possibly Washington
used them iu place of a shawlstrnp in bring

Libby prison is soon to be removed from
Richmond to Chicago. We visited It. I do
not know what price was paid for it, but
whatever the sum I would rather have it
than the prison. Tbe work of taking it down,
brick by brick, numbering each and putting
it back in the same place, taking out tbe
mortar, grinding it up and using It over
again, numbering each ubiutde, board and
nail hole so as to put it back exactly as it was
before, will be a gigantic one. Moreover,
tb" inner wall is covered with the names of
numberless autographs of prisoners, written
with pencil orscrutctied into tlio bard bristles
by those who are living ttxiay or gone to their
reward. It will be almost impossible to re
move the wall and preserve these names,
which really make tbe prison valuable as a
relic. Besides, there are many names cov
ered up by repeated whitewashing since the
war, and every day a new one is discovered
by carefully peeling off the thick coat of
urn" which hides the iitnpr wall.
Since the war Libby prison bos lieen used
as a respository for fertilizers. It now bos a
breath which will advertise its arrival in
Chicago without loss of time. If the people
of the north do not visit Mbhy prison It will
not be because they are ignorant of its where
abouts. It is a solemn place to visit even for a little
while, The three of iw together visited the

Why Milk l)lfl..rs In Uualltv.
Milk is more susceptible to changes
from the normal condition than any
other food product. The first class of
changes haa been brought about by the
action of breedors. By many years of
attention to breeding for fat production,
it is now possible to get milk which may
be twice as rich as the normal. On the
other hand, , other breeders have paid
especiul attention to production of large
quantity, even at the expense of quality,
until pure milk is sometimes produced
having as low as 10 per cent, of solids,
when the normal is in per cent.
A second set of causes which influence
the quality of milk grows out of the ig-
norance or carelessness of tiie proilucer
or seller. Where the persons held, the
exploded idea of tho value of one cow's
milk for children anything in the treat
ment of the cow which ullecta ita nervous
temperament may unlit it for food for
very young children. Uncleanliuess or
neglect is often a grave source of trouble
in the handling of milk, not only on ac
count of the possibilities of the addition
of visible tilth, but because milk is pe
culiarly susceptible to odor, various
kinds of bacteria and disease germs.
Epidemics of scarlet fever and typhoid
fever have been traceable to the milk
aupply, unclean cans and other utensils,
and particularly to propagating bacteria.
