The Royal Baking Powder
was specially selected
for use in both the Army

purity, strength and per

which render it service
able under all conditions

peculiar to the Royal

Aroma of Royal Banquet Hall from
Day of Yore.
It was tho noon hour of the day
the Mariposa from tho Colonies
was in port. Chief Glork Hassin
gor of the Interior Office was at
bis desk adding np a row of
figures. Ho heard the soft tweak
of tho screen doors in tho clerks'
outranco, but, thinking it was
caused by tho return of' a clerk
from lunch, did not raise his
hood. Presently a pleasant voice
in colonial accents was beard.
"When will tiffin be served?"
The question caused tho official's
'eyes to rise, whon they mot a
beaming conntouauco in tho door
way. It belonged to a largo man
who was evidontly fond of good
living. He was accompanied by
a small man.
"I don't eat tiffin or lunoh, as a
rule," Mr. Hassinger . replied.
'When I got through with my
work I go home and have my din

"Why, this is not a hotel

ju-it what tne place was, at tbe

As they wore rant by an official
ontering tho building, they wero
laughing so heartily that they had
to take off their hats to wipe the
dews of mirth from their brows.
"Whnt.caaho tuiukqfus, old
fellow?" exclaimed tho big man
with n slap on the back of bin
companion. And then they laugh
ed agiiu. As tho Interior Othco
is situated in tho former royal
banqueting hall, Mr. Hassinger
Bugsosts that a subtle aroma ot
high living may stilt oinunate
from the place, which may havo
attracted his colonial visitors.

Pilot Chart For January Gives Directions as
That For December Gave For Voyages
In Opposite Direction.
Tho Pilot Chart of tho North
PaciGo for January gives a record
diagram of niuotcen voyages from
tho Hawaiian Islands to tbe west
coast of tho United States. In
the number for December a dia
gram was given of voyages tho
other w-iy betweon tho same conn
tries. Commenting on tho present
diagram tbe Chart says that tho
average timo of all passages to
San Faancisco is 17 dayp, and to
Capo Flattery 19.8 day. In both
cases summer passages aro slightly
slower than winter.
"Tho sailing directions applica
ble to the voyage aro of tho sim
filest description. Leaving Hono
ulu, the course nhould be shaped
through tho pissauo between Oabu
and Kauai, keeping well off tho
sboro of the former island with
tho double purpose of avoiding
the calms which sometimes pro
vail under iU leo, as well as the
williwaws which sweep down from
its high lands. From this point
tho voyage consists in sailing
around the normal aroa of high
barometric pressuro, by tho west
and north, followiug tho wind.
The course should lean to the
eastward according to the direction
of tho trades, whother to the' north
or south of east, until tbe region
of prevailing westerly winds is
attained, tlin latitude in which
tbeso will bo.first found depend
ing upon the- B6ason, lying far
ther to tha northward during the
summer, aution should bo ueod
in turning to tho oastward too
soou, as tLio rosult of this will b'j
a succession of calms or a reour
rence of northeasterly winde,
either aim giviim rise to a dnlay
which will far more than cornpeu
sato for the shorlouiug of tho route
thus effected. In tho larue ma
jority of cases tho rotation of the
winds will be right handod, the
order of succession as the voyage
progresses boing S. E., S., S. W.,
N. W. Exceptions, however, may
occur, and tho rotation tako placo
iu tho opposite direction."

Thero is a rumor on tho water
front of great interest regarding
an oxpansion poNey of tho Ocean
ic Steamship Company's own. It
is to tho effect that the company
has ordored three, if not four, six
thousand ton steamers for the
Australian route. The rumor
goes further to mako disposition
of tho.steamors Alameda and Ma
rirnaa, now on tbat route iu con
junction with tbo stoamor Moana
of tho Union Steamship Company
if Now Zealand. Tbeso steamers
aro to be docked, it is said, for

each. When thus repaired nnd
refitted so as to be virtually now
boats, tho Alameda and Mariposn
