Your committee have made a very careful exami
nation of the ROYAL BAKING POWDER,
and are satisfied that it fulfils all the requirements
which the public can make of a baking powder.
For purity and care in preparation it equals any
in the market, and
Our test shows that it has greater
leavening power than any other
of which we have any knowledge.

A Bam for a Wife.
Bonth Broad atreet, from Jackson
street to the navy yard gates, was the
scene of a foot race the other day, the
prize being the pretty daughter of a
sailors' washerwoman. For some time
Barney Burns, a marine, and George
Lindsay, a sailor on board the receiving
ship bit. Louis, which is stationed at
League island, have been enamored of
the bright eyed daughter of the woman
who does their washing. The men were
friends and the girl's affections seemed
to be about evenly divided on the two
ardent lovers. How to decide with
which of the two she should cast her lot
was a difficult problem, but the happy
thought of a foot race presented itself.
The arrangements were perfected and
at 0 o'clock the contestants appeared
upon the course, which was two miles
long, accompanied by a large crowd who
had been advised of the contest Burns
stands 6 feet 6 inches in height and
weighs about 200 pounds, while his op
ponent, Lindsay, is lithe and willowy;
and the sports in the crowd were not
long in determining upon the latter as
the favorite.
At the crack of the pistol the lovers
were off at a rapid gait, and until the
tracks of the Greenwich Point extension
of the Pennsylvania railroad were reach
ed kept well together. The pace told
upon Burns' wind, however, and -he
dropped behind, and when Lindsay
reached the end cf the goal his com
petitor was not in sight. The washer
woman's daughter will now become Mrs.
Lindsay. Philadelphia Record.

John Bull is preparing to make things
pleasant for ns. He has been of late
especially active in strengthening his
ontposta near the United States. Biz of
the most powerful modem warships are
to be sent to the North Atlantic squad
ron, the summer headquarters of which
are at Halifax and the winter quarters
Bermuda. Halifax is close to the Ameri
can line and only 300 miles from Boston.
Bermuda is only 850 miles from New
York and is heavily fortified.
At Port Royal, in Jamaica, within
one day's sail of Florida by steamship,
Mr. Bull has some very powerful bat
teries. On the little island of St. Lucia
he has a dry dock, a naval station and a
heavy battery commanding one of the
approaches to the month of the proposed
Nicaragua canal. On all these strong
holds money is now being spent, We
all know abont the arsenal, naval depot
and fortifications at Esqnimaalt, and
the warships in these waters. Uncle
Bull has industriously fortified his out
posts as near as possible to the United
States. ,
The increased activity in this work is
only two or three years old. It must be
costing a great deal of money. It mani
fests a very friendly interest in our wel
fare and show that onr jolly old nncle
has his lienevolent eye on us. We shall
have to watch Uncle Bull, too, in the
friendliest way. We must not let him
outdo us in polite attention. Boston
It is believed that a well planned sys
tem for improving the breeds of cattle,
horses and hogs throughout all Canada
will be soon taken in hand by the ad
ministration. This would add greatly to
the value of the permanent "living

politics" in the best sense. ,

A Hotel Beat.
"Let me look at the letters in the B
box, please," said a man to the clerk in
one of the up town hotels this morning.
The elegantly attired gentleman behind
the marble bestowed a stony stare upon
the other individual and in his most icy
tones demanded:
"What name, sir?"
"Brown Alfred Brown."
"We have no mall here for you, sir,"
said the clerk in accents that froze into
icicles as the words dropped from his
lips. "Yon will probably rind it at the

mail sentinthecareofthehotelofwhich
he is not and has never been a guest.
The public have no idea what a terrible
nuisance and how much time is con
sumed in dealing with these individuals.
As soon as we get onto their racket we
send the letters back to the postofflce.
Many men will take a room for a day or
night at a hotel and then go to a board
ing or lodging house, just for the pur
pom of having their mail sent in our care
and so they can afterward use our sta
tionery. We quickly tumble to them
and send their mail back to the postof

freeze them out." Washington Star.

Chicago Lead. In tilaa Makinf.
The purchase of 80,000 acres of Indi
ana's best natural gas land by Ohio capi
talists and manufacturers has resulted in
making Chicago the distributing point
for the largest daily output of plate glass
in the world. Several Chicago capital
ists have taken a charter under the
laws of Illinois, the amount represented
being $3,000,000. The output will amount
to 20,000 square feet of plate glass per
day, the headquarters of whose distribu

Ornamental Tree Planting.
For street planting, A. Dunning, of the
Illinois Horticultural society, says there
is nothing better than elm, ash, linden
and catalpa. Where soil is dry, hard
maple is among the best, but on wet
black soil is the poorest, For lawn or
grounds, increase the list in proportion
to the size of the grounds; if there is
room plant some which are not generally
claused as hardy, protecting them for a
few years in winter.
Bo Caught the Pickpocket Who Oave lllm
the Chllla.
He was just in from the wilds of the
"UmtamtH" ward, and the "pull" his
aldt'.rmun had with the chief had secured
his promotion, to the dignity of a control
"fly cop."
The importance of his now position
weighed heavily upou him, and hu strug
gled bruvcly to uphold it. The superior
ity of a fly cop over an ordinary patrol
Uian traveling his beat burned deeply in
his brain, and he looked haughtily at
those erstwhile acquaintances who still
wear the blue coats and brass buttons.
One day the now man, with the unfor
tunate who hud been told off as his part
ner, wore sent down to watch for pick
pockets on the St ajf street cable line.
There was little success until suddenly
the newly made fly cop grasped his part
ner's arm. "There's a fellow I've hud
my eyo on for some time," he said proud
ly, "and now I mgomgtoget him. There
he is, the tall guy with the soft hat."
Theexpencnced man looked and smiled
oddly. "Just as well now as any other
time," he murmured softly to himself.
Then ho said, "I don't suppose you want
any help."
Fired with visions of glorv and the
idea of making n single handed capture,
the new man answered, "No, Biree, I'll
take him myself."
Then his partner walked around the
comer whittling in a subdued tone uud
muttering something ubout "fools having
to take their medicine," although there
wasn't a doctor or sick man in Bight.
The man from the Uniteonth boarded
the car and flashed his star on the con
ductor, who, of course, pulled the bell at
once. Then the ambitious detective
walked opto the tall man and said: "I've
got you now. Come along with me."
The gentleman turned and said: "I
guess you've made a mistake, my friend.
You don't know me.
But 1 do, my boy, and that's the
trouble. Come along with me. I've been
looking out fur you for the last two
The people in the car were staring, and
couple of men began looking for their
pockctbooks. Then the tall man said:

As they walked over toward the city
hall the patrolman on the corners salut
ed, and the Uuiteenth man was in the
seventh heaven. His bravery was recog
nized. As thoy reached the door of the
central station the officers looked up
from their game of "cincb" and saluted
with a "How are you, chief?" Then they
looked at the capturer, and as thoy took

He looked around in amazement. Then
the tall man said: "Now, my man, I'm

Ill solemn Oath.
A popular comedian tells a story of a
waiter at a London restaurant who was
sadly given to drink. A party of young
men determined to reform him, and one
day they read to him an imaginary par
agraph from a paper relating a terrible
accident in which an inebriate in blow
ing out a caudle was killed by the flame
igniting the alcoholic fumes of bis
breath. James pricked up his ears at
this and requested that the paragraph
might be read to him again, which was
done, to the evident horror of the poor
man, who immediately went In search
of a Bible.
Returning with this, he expressed a
desire to take a solemn oath upon it, be
moaned the fact that he had been a sorry
tippler and was bringing himself to
ruin, and then swore that never again
so long as he lived would he attempt to
blow out a candle. Million.
Hunter Ham Pugh'l Krror.
Sam Ptigh, of this city, was quite seri
ously hurt near Stillwater, O. T., a few
evenings ago. With a party of young
men he was out coon hunting. They
chased an animal several miles, think
ing thoy were trailing a coon, and when
the animal was treed, Pngh climbed the
tree to knock it down. In the darkness
he could not see but what it was a coon,
and he climbed np close to it and struck
it. To his surprise he fonnd the animal
wan a large and ferocious wildcat, which
flew at him, biting and scratching him
in a horrible manner, and causing him
to lose his hold and fall to the ground.
In his fall he struck a limb, fracturing
three ribs and inflicting other severe
bruises. He will be confined to his room
for some weeks with his injuries, Kan

The Moose Invited Death.
A bull moose was recently shot in the
Maine woods which had nine prongs on
one hom and eight on the other, the
spread at the antlers measuring five
feet. The animal apparently courted
death, for, while the hunter who shot
him was asleep by his camp fire, in the
middle of the night the animal came np
and smelled him over and awakened

London's Theater Curtains.
One of the finest curtains in this coun
try is at the Lyceum thenter. On It all
that art can do has been lavished. Made
of a rich, beautiful plush of dragon's
blood hue, it hiiugH from the proscenium
arch in artistic folds. The curtain was
presented to Mr. Irving by the liaionees
Bnrdott Coutts. its cost being 1,000
guineas. One thousand yards of plrnA
were used in its mmiutncture, and it
achieved the fame of once being parodied
in a Gaiety burlesque,
Mr. Wyndhttiu's curtain at the Crite
rion is a creation of Maple & Co. and
cost about i'lSU. At the Gaiety the pres
ent act drop is the work of Mr. George
Bunks. The artist's conception takes
the form of a great whitn satin cloth,
with a solitary figure opening two cur
tains. The Savoy curtain is noted both
for its beauty and the artistic manner in
which it rises and reveals the stage. The
act drop at the Adelpht, the home of
"creepy" melodrama, is a curtain which
has nuirked the resting places of count
less pieces of the transiiontiite type. It
represents a scene in Shorwood forest
in the days of Robin Hood and his mer
