The 44 Royal " the Strongest and
Purest Baking Powder.
; Whether any other baking powder is equal to
"Royal," let the official reports decide. When
the different powders were purchased on the open
market and examined by Prof. Chandler, of the
New-York Board of Health, the result showed that
Royal Baking Powder contained twenty-seven
per cent, greater strength than any other brand.
1 When compared in money value, this difference
would be as follows :
If one pound of Royal Baking Powder sells
for 50 cents,
One pound of no other powder is worth over
If another baking powder is forced upon you
by the grocer in place of
are charged the correspondingly lower price.

THE SWIMMING PJACE.
I passed today the MttltMtond,

Full breasted clertxne wave

Far in the depths below
Bow childish now those terrors seem I
But are we wiser grown.
Who dread to cross death's silent stream
For tear of ills unknown
Bow bright the rippling wavelets ran,
How fresh tbe breezes blewl
Ere yet the cares that come to man '
O'er us their shadow threw.
Now oft beside the little lake
I sit and ponder lone,
And listen as the wavelets break
In mournful mouotoue.
And call to mind the Joyous train
With whom 1 used to play;
A few fond, faithful hearts remain,
Some wander far away '
And memory's eyes are dim with I
As each loved name is told,
O'er whose fair boyish head for years
The waves of death have rolled.
Who on life's sea, with youthful strength.
Swam forth in ardor brave.
With faint and failing stroke at length
To aink beneath the wave.

Beyond death's veil of mist

A Somnambulisms Performance.
Residing on the south side is a man
whose physician has strongly advised
him to indulge in a regular exercise.
This young man has Deen troubled
with insomnia and is occasionally
afflicted with somnambulism. He be
lies, however, that he has the making
of an athlete in him, and when he re
ceived his physician's instructions he
resolved to bring it out. So lie had a
horizontal bar erected in the back
yard of the house, and upon this he
practiced daily. His principal feat was
to grab the smooth bar with both
hands and swing around with great
rapidity. One night last week the
young man a mother was awakened by
the noise of a door closing. She
arose and tiptoed toward the back
part of the house. Looking out of the
window she saw her son, clad" in his
nightgown, revolving on the horizon'
tal bar with lightning rapidity.
Amazed at the spectacle of the gyrat
ing son and his flapping night garment
she aroused his lather and told him
about it The old gentleman arose,
donned his pants and went to the res
cue. When he succeeded in stopping
the revolutions of the flying boy he
learned that he was asleep ana that he
bad posed as a somnambulist athlete.
He awoke him with some difficulty
and led him back to his bed. Now the
young man has his parents lock his
doors and windows when he goes to
bed. He is anxious to regain his
health, but he will not go so far as to
do a horizontal act in his nightgown.

sumption can be cured if

rhere Is a Capital Reason Why the
Actor Never Has Been Married.
There are few among the admirers of
Richard Mansfield who have not won
dered at the persistence with wh :ch he
holds to bachelorhood. . , ,
Mr. Mansfield is the victim of an ex
traordinary and unfortunate will ex
traordinary because he is left as sole
heir to a considerable estate, and un
fortunate because he cannot touch a
penny of all his inheritance until he
has found a wife to share his fortune.
Some six years ago, before the pres
ent "Beau Brummel" was as well
known as he is now, and when the au
thor of that successful . play was &
freshman at Amherst, the motherof
Richard Mansfield died.; She hadteen
a famous opera singer in her day, and
not being careless of the ufoney hej
voice had earned for her, fad amassed
a small fortune. Richard Mansmeld
was her only child, ana to him 611 the
whole of her property, which oronsisted
principally ef vamable real estate. But
the will whicbannouneed Juris disposi
tion of thebroDerty was a curious doc
ument the late Attorney General
Trainywas one of its efxecutors. It gave
allypersonal anc real," to the son
plainly enough, bAit the conditions and
restrictions whpch it exacted were hard
ly what one would expect to find in
the will of jan opera singer.
The conditions were that the heir
should not marry within five years
from, the date of the filing of the will,
and! that after that period the property

e was married.
Here was a state or affairs for an
actor neither property nor wife for
five years, and then no property with
out a wife.
In the summer of 1889 Richard Mans
field went abroad. It was rumored
among his friends and even hinted at
in the papers that he was to marry an
English lady of some distinction, but
the winter came and brought Richard
Mansfield back to New York still at
tended only by his valet, and those
who were authority for the report won
dered how they could have been so
mistaken. Such stories were no nov
elty to Mr. Mansfield. He never men
tioned his mother's wilL
In one of the acts of "Beau Brum
mel" Mansfield is asked, in regard to
his intended marriage, what surety he
will have against the failure of his suit,
to which he replies, with an air of su
preme self satisfaction, "And am I not
surety enough?" It Is a line well suited
to the Beau, but few who marked it
have understood how aptly it suits the
actor. New York World.
Trees 650 Feet Tall.
Professor Fred Q. Plumruer, the civil
engineer of Tacoma, says: "I have
been all over this country and have the
best collection of the flora to be found
anywhere.. What do you think of these
trees 650 feet high 1 They are to be
found that high in the nnsurveyed
townships near the foot of Mount
Tacoma, and what is more I have seen
them and made an instrumental meas
urement of a numberjyith,JJiatresult.
There are lots of trees near the base of
Mount Tacoma whose foliage is so far
above the ground that it is impossible
to tell to what family they belong ex
cept by the bark. Very few people
know or dream of the immensity of
our forest growth. I wish that some
of our large trees could be sent to the
World's fair at Chicago. We could
send a flag pole, for instance, 300 or
400 feet long." Olympia Tribune.
Elephants Fine Food.
Dr. Livingstone speaks of elephant's
flesh as excellent. "We had the food
cooked for breakfast and found it de
licious. It is a whitish mass, slightly
gelatinous and sweet, like marrow. A
long march to prevent biliousness is a
wise precaution after a ' feast on ele
phant's food. Elephant's tongue and
trunk are also good, and after long
simmering much resemble the humps
of a buffalo and the tongue of an ox ;
but all the other meat is tough, and
from its peculiar flavor only to be eaten
by a hungry man." The elephants
eaten during the siege of Paris were
said to be a great success, and the liver
was pronounced finer than that of any
goose or duck. Scottish Review.
No matter how much advertising
pays it certainly costs. A single page
in an Issue of The Century, taken for
advertising purposes, costs $500; in
Harper's, $400 down to $100. A yearly
advertisement of one column in The
New York Herald costs $30,304 for the
lowest and $130,000 for the highest
priced columns. These figures will
doubtless be of interest to men who in
vest $2 or $3 per month and flatter
themselves with the idea that they are
extensive and liberal advertisers, and
that because of their investment they
ought to control the columns and dic
tate the course of the publication.
