Both Better and Cheaper.
The Royal Baking Powder, as an actual fact, is the most

Both the United States and Canadian Governments in the
reports of their investigation of baking powders have pub
lished this fact officially.
The other baking powders known in this vicinity are shown
by chemical tests to contain from 20 to 80 per cent, less
leavening-gas than the Royal: So the Royal, even should it
cost more than the others, would be much the cheaper.
In addition to this the superior flavor, sweetness, whole
someness and delicacy of the food raised by Royal Baking
Powder would make any difference in cost insignificant.
When the Royal makes finer and. more wholesome food,
at a less cost, which every housekeeper familiar with it will
affirm, why not discard altogether the old-fashioned methods
of soda and sour milk, or home-made mixture of cream of
tartar and soda, and use it exclusively ?
