The United States Agricultural Department
has issued (and circulates free) a valuable report
giving the results of elaborate experiments made
by and under the direction of the Department,
which show the great saving from baking at home,
as compared with cost of buying at the bakers.
All bread, cake, biscuit, crullers, etc., are very much
fresher, cleaner,cheaper and more wholesome when
made at home with Royal Baking Powder.

CHINESE ART IN STONE.
A Dowry on Approval.
A curious custom prevails among
Roumanian peusauts. When a Rou
manian girl la of a marriageable sgc,
all her trousseau, which hag been care
fully woven, spun and embroidered by
ner mother and herself, is placed In
imiuiea wooacn box. wncn a young
man thinks of asking to bo allowed to

The spirit of purely Chinese art In
stone Is shown in -work such as the
freat monolith figures of animals and
warriors which flunk the approach to
the tombs of the Ming dynasty and in
the perfectly plain structure designed
for the tombs of the present dynasty.
These are composed of enormous
blocks of stone brought with infinite
labor from distant quarries over rosds
and bridges which ore hardly capable
of sustaining ordinary cart trafllc and
have always to be speclully prepared
to prevent the great weights causing
The same admiration for the employ
ment of huge blocks of stone is seen
In the case of the bridges over the riv
ers along the coast of South Fukicn,
where the stone slabs used in t.e con
struction occasionally measure sixty
feet in length and are estimated to
weigh nearly 120 tons, and the bridges
themselves have a length of 1,000 to
In almost all cases where the build
ings are not of solid contraction the
weight of the blocks employed has
placed a strain upon the supports which
the architect's skill was not competent
to provide against, and with the lapse
of time the melancholy spectacle Is
seen of slabs falleu from their places
and of noble and costly structures
approaching ruin. In some cases the
Interdependence of the arches leads to
the same result. One notable Instance
of this occurred during Colonel Gor
don's campaign against the Tslplngs,
when to allow of tho passage of his
small steamers it was necessary to
make a gap in a bridge of over twenty
arches, and arch after arch collapsed

Moat People Are Not Verr Goad Mor
Yet Verr Bad.
What do we mean by n good man or
a bad one, a good woman or a bad
one? Most people, like the young man
in the song, are "not very good, nor yet
very bad." We move about the pas
tures of life in huge herds, and all do
the same things at the same times and
for the same reasons. "Forty feeding
like one." Are we mean? Well, w
have done some mean things In our
time. Are we generous? Occasionally
we are. Were we good sons or dutiful
daughters? We have both honored and
dishonored our parents, who in their
turn bad done the same by theirs. Do
we melt at the sight of misery? Indeed
we do. Do we forget all about It when
we have turned the corner? Frequently
that Is so. Do we expect to be put to
open sharue-at the great day of judg
ment? We should be terribly frighten
ed of this did we not cling to the hope
that amid the shocking revelations then
for the first time made public our little
affairs may fall to attract much notice.
Judged by the standards of humani
ty, few people are either good or bad.
"I have not been a great sinner," said
the dying Nelson; nor bad he he bad
only been made a great fool of by a
woman. Mankind Is all tarred with the
same brush, though some who chance
to be operated upon when the brush is
fresh from the barrel get more than
their share of the tar. The biography
of a celebrated mau usually reminds
me of the outside of a coast guards
man's cottage all tar and whitewash.

I wish to say to all our old friends and custom
ers who for so many years came to our shop for
their meats, that it is useless for me to introduce
Wood Bros., our successsors, as their 18 years in
the butcher business in Wasco county has made
them so widely known that an introduction is un
necessary. Being- honest, capable business men,
they have the means and ability to rwn a business
as it should be run, and in a way that will be a
credit to our city.
I expect to stay with the new firm for awhile,
and will be glad to see you all at the old stand. 1
will guarantee that you will get just as much meat
for your money, just as courteous treatment and
just as prompt service as can be had in the city.
We will have a full line of everything good to
eat for the Spring trade.
