As the result of my tests, I find the
ROYAL BAKING POWDER superior to all
the others in every respect It is entirely
free from all adulteration and unwhole
some impurity, and in baking it gives off
a greater volume of leavening gas than
any other powder. is therefore not only
the purest, but also the strongest powder
with -which I am acquainted.

OWING TO A LAME HORSE.
Be Stops rl for the Night a the Boms
of HI Old Friend.
A number of years ago, before the rail
road was built through this section, 1 used
to drive over my mute.
It whs early in June on a Saturday that
I left a town not far from here determined
if possible to reach Kensiugton to spend
Sunday. Just after starting I noticed that
one horse was a little lame and rapidly be
coming worse. As evening was approach
ing 1 concluded that 1 would ask to re
main over Sunday at the first respectable
looking farmhouse that 1 reached.
About fifteen minutes later 1 came to a
place with the house and barns nicely
painted and the outbuilding and fence
in good order. Junta I reached the front
gate an old man appeared with a shepherd
dog running at his heels. Tbe barking of
the dog, in a not unfriendly way, called
tbe old gentleman's attention tome. 1
told bimof my dilemma and requested
him to allow me to remain over the Sab
bath. He hesitated a moment and then
remarked that he "guessed Cynthia would
not care." After considerable trouble we

soon bad niiue feeling better. We started
for the bouse, and before we reached the
door it was opened from the inside by a
young girl, woo said in a clear voice.
"Grandpa, you are late; supper has been
ready some time." Just then J stepped
out from the shadow of the porch, and he
introduced nie and explained Cue situation
to her, whereupon she at once bade me
After tea we gathered in the war iiarlnr
I was surprised to see a fine piano and a
library well filled with standard works,
and observed two swords crossed, an old
canteen and a haversack. Krideucea of a
cultured taste prevailed.
She was a particularly good conversa
tionist, and as the old geutleman dosed
in his old armchair we fast became ac
quainted. The clock striking 10 awoke Mr.
J oh 1 in, and, lighting a candle, he shewed
me to my room. Glancing around the
room I saw an old fashioned album lying
on the table, and turning oer its pages i
came across a photograph of Captain Jos
lin, with whom 1 bunked in Libby Prison
in 18&t It was plain enough now. My
host had told me bis name was JokHd. and
Cynthia bis grandchild so Captain Jmlin,
my old friend, was his son, and Cynthia
must be the daughter I remembered he
had spoken of as we walked up and down
the prison floor. I was exchanged and left
Libby Prison, and had never been able to
get any trace of bim.
After break f ant, as we were sitting on
tbe porch, a lull in the conversation gave
me a chance to resume it by entering upon
the subject then foremost in my mind.

School in Centra! Park.
I saw a pretty sight in Central park the
other day. The eutrance to the swan boat
pavilion was choked with benches, and it
was evident that some unusual call upon
the flees bad been made. Most of the
boats wen out of sight, but after awhile
there came a fleet of them down the tiny
lake, and such a nock of happy little ones
as filled them you seldom saw upon that
sheet of water.
In each boat were one or more pleasant
faced ladies keeping the little ones in check
and pointing out to them the beauties of
the sail They were very quiet for chil
dren, but waved their handkerchiefs at
each other and were evidently having a
royal and unusual time.
What do you think it was School. Ac
tually school 1 thought of the public
schools with their pent up hordes of baf
smothered children, and I wondered if tb
good Lord would ever give sense to the
board of education and teach that body
that tbe book of nature is worth a ton of
printed books these bright spring days.
1 asked tbe name of the wise school
which bad learned the lesson of making
learning palatable to tbe young, and I
found thai it was an old friend of mine,
tbe school founded and maintained by Pro
fessor Felix Adler's society. The little
ones whom I saw were the children of the
very poor. Their parent bad no time for
Central park and no money for swan boats,
and their ride was a luxury as well as an
education. God bless such schools as thesef

A Morel idea.
Some member of the Berean Himion
Sunday school on Manhattan avenue hat
hit upon a novel idea in the way of a
general birthuitr reminder. It has been
pleasant habit in the Borean Sunday
school to endeavor to rouonrmse in some
graceful way the birthday of every offi
cer and teacher of the achool, but this
endeavor was often frustrated by the
natural modesty of some of the intended
recipients and the equally natural for
getfnlnew of the other members where
so many dates had to be kept in mind.
In order to ruinody this and to make
it certain that no one can by any pos
sibility b forgotten, a reminder has just
been printed on cards and distributed.
These cards contain the names and
ages of every officer aud teacher, to
gether with the day of the month on
