Cooking is a matter which con?
cerns the whole family, and under
modern methods and conveniences
it is made so attractive the whole
family is becoming interested, if not
taking part in it.
** These biscuits are delicious; this cake is
excellent," says the father. " I made them,"
says the daughter, and both father and
daughter beam with pleasure.
It is a crime, with our modern agencies,
helps and facilities, to have soggy biscuit, or
wooden cake, or leaden pastry.
Royal Baking Powder has made home
baking a success, a pleasure and a profit, and
the best cooking today the world over is
done with its aid.

In fact, his one mistake as a pubi: ?

to his wife, and then shielded her at .

For her sake he abandoned his d-voted

have fpund It powrlhle after that to
return to public life and to secure and
hold the premiership for many years,
speaks volumes for his political ability.
Queen Marguerite, who had heen
fond of Dona Rosalie Crisp!, refused to
receive Dona Dlna at court, owing to
her antecedents and to th? fact that
her only daughter by Crisp!, now the
Judicially separated wife of the Sicilian
Prince IJnguaalo*sa. had been bdrn

King Humbert with his own resigna?

from court, and as a cabinet crisis at;
that moment would have been danger?

groat difficulty, induced Queen Mar?

Queen Marguerite. Crispi was able to

from the King, which rendered Dona
