The New Bread
As endorsed and recommended by
the New-York Health Authorities.
Royal Unfermontcd Bread is peptic, palatable, most
healthful, and may be eaten warm and fresh without
discomfort even by those of delicate digestion, which
is not true of bread made in any other way.
To make One Loaf of Royal Unfermented Bread :
i quart flour, i teaspoonful silt, half a teaspoonful sugar,
a heaping teaspoonfuls Royal Baking Powder, cold boiled
potato about the size of large hen's egg, and water.
Silt together thoroughly flour, salt, sugar, and baking powder; rub in 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 more or less, according to the brand and quality of the flour
used Do not make a stiff dough, like yeast brend. I'our the batter into a
greased pan, 4 H by 8 inches, and 4 inches deep, filling abuut half full. The
loaf will rise to fill the pan when baked. Bake in very hot oven 45 minutes,
placing paper over first IJ minules' baking, to prevent crusting too soon on
top. Bake immediately after mixing. Ho not mix with milk.

The best baking powder made is, as shown by analy
sis, the "Royal." Its leavening strength has been found
superior to other baking powders, and, as far as I know,
it is the only powder which will raise large bread perfectly.

HOW CHOLERA IS SPREAD IN INDIA.
Through Lack of sanitation and tit Peo
ple's Peculiar Habits.
A plain storv of the conditions that
prevail in India for the spread of the
cholera was related at the New Cen
tury club by Dr. Puuline Root of the
Woman s Medical college, who has uvea
for eight years in southern India Dr.
Root began by describing the conditions
under which people live in southern In
dia, in order to show exactly what cir
cumstances generate the cholera. There
Is absolutely no sanitation there as wo
have it Drainage, with the exception
of a fever breeder in the way of an open (
sewer, is unknown. In the vilhtge peo
ple live in low rand huts, where all the
family conirregate in 0110 room, the di
mensions of which are likely to be 4 feet
by ID or 12 feet As there are no out
buildings at all. there is no way in which
persons can protect themselves against
the cholera if it once appears in such a
household. Sometimes, if the well rang
dry, stagnant water must be used. A
high caste personage wiu not allow a
low caste to use Ins well.
Conunouly people go to the river for
water. As the water is frequently not
on the snrfaco, a "tub" is dug in the
river bed and the water allowed to col
lect. At this tub or at the well all the
functions of bathing are performed.
First the jar is filled and the water being
dashed over the person soon trickles back
to its source. In the case of certain re
ligions enthusiasts, water is poured over
the body 50 times. Next the seely, the
single piece of silk or cloth which is worn
as a garment must be washed. This is
dipped into the pooL r inally the jar is
refilled and carried home. The quality
of the water by the time the jar is re
filled is promising indeed when cholera
is in the air.
In these river tubs the clothes are
washed. The cattle are taken there to
drink. Dr. Root said that in sending a
man to the river to fetch wulor there w
never any certainty that he wbuld not
fill his jar with the water standing in one
of the pools instead of digging a fresh
hole. The very cleanliness of tho people
and they are extremely clean tends
to the spread of cholera because their 1
method of bathing is so unintelligent
In southern India there is always more
or less cholera. It is often prevalent aft
er a certain religions festival of the
the marriage of two divinities which is
celebrated by an eucanipmeut in the
river bed for four or five days.
As for facilities in curing for the sick
in India, Dr. Root graphically showed
how forlornly poor these are by describ
ing her experience in the house of the
vice president of the municipality of
Madua, a wealthy man, who arrayed
himself resplendently when he came to
ask her to visit his wife, thus showing
his solicitude for his wife's condition.
Undoubtedly he meant to do the best he
could for the sick woman, for the doctor
found her in a room adjacent to her hus
band'sa position of honor. The wom
an was badly crippled and only able to
crawl down from her cot Beyond play
ing with the children and polishing the
jewels nothing relieved the monotony of
her day. She was entirely nncared for.
A hole in the wall for refuse was cleaned
only once a day. The woman died of
blood poisoning. And this is the way a
sick person fared in one of the better
Usually a sick person is placed in a
room that is reached from the honse by
crossing a court and passing through an
alley. The alley usually has black
slimy water in it The room is 7 feet
square. In the court are often found
the cow, chickens and a number of per
sons. No wonder that under such con
ditions cholera spreads like wildfire.
But cholera is alwavs brought. It never
starts of itself .Philadelphia Ledger.

A novel dock is now being exhibited

It is of wood, beautifully carved and

from a door at one side of the fort and
blows the call to assemble and march.
Almost instantly doors open on all
sides. A regiment of automatic sol
diers, six abreast, march out wheel to
the left stop a few seconds to "mark
time," and then march through another
part of the fortress to the barracks.
