Hot Griddle Cakes.
Dr. Price's Cream Baking Powder possesses a peculiar
merit not approached by that of any other baking powder.
It produces the hot buckwheat, Indian or wheiit cakes, hot
biscuit, doughnuts, waffles or muffins. Any of these tasteful
things may be eaten when hot with impunity by persons of
the most delicate digestive organs. Dr. Price's Cream Bak
ing Powder leavens without firmentation or decomposition.
In its preparation none but the purest of cream of tartar, so-.
da, etc. is used, and in such exact equivalents as to always
guarantee a perfectly neutral result, thereby giving the natu
ral and sweet flavor peculiar to buckwheat and other flour
that may be used, the natural flavor so much desi red and ap
predated by all. The oldest patrons of Dr. Prices powder tell
the story, that they can never get the same results from any
other leavening agent, that their griddle cakes, b scuits", etc.
are never so light and never taste so 6weet of ;o good as

A MOORISH MARRIAGE
CEREMONIES ATTENDING THE
BRATION IN MOROCCO.
Peeullar Appearance of the Bride 8ha
Wat Fist, bat Iteaaty In That Country
Is Ganged by the Quantity of Adipose
Tissne Carried on Her Urother's Back.
It was evening when we started off to a
Moorish wedding, one of the most interest
ing sights of Morocco. We fou nd onr way
to tt low, whitewashed house, which the
ladies of the party entered. The gentle
men had toremain outside, as no man is
permitted to" look on a Moorish lady. W e
found ourselves in a short pit-ssape leading
into the "patio," a square hall around
which the rooms are built. The patio was
Towdett with women squatting on the
Boor, some sipping tea and eating sweet
cakes; others (the paid musicians) sifig in
a low, nasal chant to the accompaniment
Passing through these we came into tho
room where the bride sat in state. The at
mosphere was stifling. She was surrounded
by lady friends and relatives, many of
whom held long lighted candles. The
women were smartly attired and had their
faces and eyes highly painted. The room
was long and narrow. Its ceiling was
painted in brilliant colors and the white
washed walls for about six feet were bung
with a handsome dado or crimson velvet in
panels, each panel being a Moorish arch
applique in green broche with gold em
broidery. Behind white lace curtains at
each end of the room stood a bed with pil
lows encased in Moorish embroidery on
silk, a valance of the same reaching to the
THE BRIDE'S APPEARANCE.
On oue of these beds sat the bride, tailor
fashion, with a veil of checked muslin en
tirely enveloping her. This was presently
raised and disclosed the lady to our view.
She was a girl of fourteen, and, being very
fat, was considered a beauty. To lie fat is
considered a woman's greatest att raction.
Indeed, when Hearing a marriageable age
it is common for girls to lie for weeks cov
ered with warm blankets, passing their
time in dozing and feeding nn a fattening
diet of milk, "boos koosoo" (the native
dish), oil, pea$, or a certain bean supposed
to be infallible as a fat producer.
Iler face presented the most extraordi
nary appearance, being painted white with
a delicate pattern in pale blue, yellow and
black on a three cornered patch of crimson
on each cheek and chin. The eyebrows
wereindicated by at bin line of dense black,
nd from the corners of the eyes, which
were blackened, extended a fanshaped de
sign in black to the top of the ears. The
tips of her ringers and toes were died terra
cotta with henna. Ayslia (so she was
called) was clad in a gorgeous kaftan of
ted silk and gold brocade, embroidered ij
gold and reaching to her ankles. Her
undergarmeuts were pure colored brocade
anil her waistcoat green velvet and gold.
Over the kaftan hung alight gauze gar
ment, open down the front and confined
by a band of gold and silk in many colors.
Her headdress was composed of silk
hand kerchiefs, pinned around so as to
show a narrow edge of each ou the fore
head. Above these came a band of black
velvet with a close design of seed pearls
aud emeralds. Her neck was encircled by
many necklaces, principally strings of
pearls with occasional uncut emeralds
and amethysts, she further wore a num
ber of rings aud bracelets and anklets of a
costly but clumsy description. The most
remarkable piece of jewelry was the ear
rings, which were as large ns an ordinary
bracelet, the part going through the ear
being a tube of gold quite half an inch in
diameter. The girls accustom their ears to
this by pressing date stones through the
hole. At the front of the earrings was an
ornament of gold filigree and precious
stones, to which was attached a gold chain
fastened by a brooch to the headdress. Her
out tit was completed by a pair of velvet
and gold slipiers.
While we were gazing at her we heard a
cry in the patio, which was quickly taken
up by the- women lu the bridal chamber.
The bridal veil was immediately dropped
and the women assumed their helks, a
long, white woolen shawl. The reason of
this commotion was the entrance of
Aysha's brother, a tall Moor in dark blue
cloth djellabea and white turban. He
seated himself on the bed front of his sis
ter, and ibe latter, putting her arms around
bis neck, was carried pickaback into the
patio. Here the women were congregated
n round a curious wooden box, swathed in
bridal clothes. At one side was an open
ing, where the Moor knelt. The bride
climbed over his head and into the box.
Draperies were dropped over the opening,
and Aysha, in her cage, was hoisted on a
tnnle at the door of the house.
The procession t hen formed up, the mu
sicians, playing drums, leading the way,
followed by Moors carrying brass cande
labras with colored candles. Then came
the bride's box, surrounded by twenty or
thirty Kinians doing a wild, fantastic
"powder play" with their long brass or
silver mounted guns. Then more candles
and a long array of friends. In this way is
the bride borne to her husband's home; no
matter how far it may be, in the box she
must remain till she arrives there.
Then the box is lifted down to the
tnreshold and the bridegroom's mother
comes with a bowl of milk, a loaf of bread
and salt for the bride to taste. The keys
are then delivered to her, and the old lady
keeping in front of the box,- the bride
crawls out, crawls on to hermother-in-
law's back and is carried to the bridal
chamber, there, still veiled, to be locked in
alone. The mother then delivers the key
of the room to her son, who goes to unveil
and look for the first time on his bride.
Doetorins; the Wild Anlmala.
Hospitals for cats and dogs are quite
common in the large cities, and many a
feline and canine pet has been successfully
nursed through a severe Illness by the ex
pert doctors who spend their time in study
ing animal diseases. With the exception
of wounds and injuries, th great majority
of the complaints which the pets suffer
from come as a direct result of too high
living. Sweets, cake, candy aud highly
seasoned food will in the course of time
make even the dumb brutes sick, and the
animal doctors frequontly Cud that all
their patients need are a little physic and
plain living. Two weeks of such common
treatment generally restores the pets to
health and strength again.
But of late, years the importations to
this country of wild animals for circuses,
menageries and exhibitions of various
kinds have been so large that there has
sprung up a regular system of doctoring
for wild animals. , Their complaints gen
erally are very few. At first they are
homesick after leaving their forest jun
gles, and they pine away in their capes un
less they are carefully watched. The wilder
and fiercer ones refuse to be consoled, and
they often injure themselves in their frantic
c (Torts to break through their iron1 cage.
Then the heat, change of climate and food
and occasionally old age, bring on com
plaints that must be checked by expert
physicians. Xew York Kpoch.

A Vagary of Disease.
The curious vagary of disease was in
stanced in the case of a young woman not
long recovered from an unusually severe
illness with typhoid fever. She is an only
daughter, and has always greatly deplored
tins lact, wishing many times lor a sister.
In her delirium, which was unremitting
for many days, tbedesired boon was grant
ed. A vivid personality, the longed for
sister, named and identified, never left her.
They lived together in her fancy a coherent
life, sleeping, rising, eating, visiting to
gether, even spending long hours of in
diiKtrious labor over fancy work that de
veloped suggestion, alteration and admira
tion. So real was this presence that the
sick girl in her tedious convalescence of
sane weakness frequently cried bitter tears
of disappointment over the loss of the
Kentle, companionable sister whom she had
come to know and fondly love. Iler Poiut
