Certain baking powder makers are publishing falsified extracts from the
Government reports, with pretended analyses and certificates, wherein an
attempt is made to compare their baking powders with the "Royal," r
making- bogus tests from hou se to house, their obvious purpose being to
counteract the recent exposures of the inferiority of their own goods arising
from their impurity, low strength, and lack of keeping pialities as shown
by the Government chemists and o tiers.
As to whether any of these taking powders are
equal to the "Royal," the official tests clearly deter
mine. When samples of various baking powders were
purchased from the grocers, and analyzed by the United
States Government Chemists and the Chemists of State
and City Boards of Health, the reports revealed the fact
that the "Royal" contained from per cent, to 6o per
cent, more leavening strength than any other cream of
tartar baking powder, anil also that it was more perfectly
made, of purer ingredients, and altogether wholesome.
As these powders are sold to consumers at the same juice, by tlu- usr
of the Royal Baking Powder then: is an average saving of over one third,
besides the advantage of assured purity and wholesomeness of food, and ol
bread, biscuit, and cake made perfectly light, sweet, and palatable- advan
tages not to be had in the use of the; low-grade, cheaply made baking pow
ders that contain lime, alum, and other impurities.

San An riixiii. Tex., Jan. 2. There was
much suppressed excitement and uneasi
ness at military headquarters here yester
day over the failure to receive any report
I om the se.it of war on the border for the
past forty-eight hours. It was feared that
(iar.a had received such a large uuutlicr
of reinforcements from Mexico since the
revolt of Mexican troops at Mierthnt they
had the United Slates troops which were
commanded by John li. Hourke complete
The A pirclieiisioiis ( on li rineil.
And these apprehensions were confirmed
later in t he day by the receipt of a dis
patch staling that a lint tie has been fought
on the bonier and that the United States
troops are in a critical sit uat ion. The dis-
i pitch came from Captain
sent it to a small slut ion on the Mexican
Central road by couriers. It was so gar
bled in its transmission over the wires
that its exact meaning was not made
clear. F.nough could be gleaned from iu
however, to learu that an engagement had
taken place lie! ween the United Status
troops and the revolutionists, and that tlu
former are ni a critical position. The lo-s,
if there was any on eit her side, could Udt
be made out from the dispatch.
I'onlil iet No Further News,
(icncral Stanley at once sent a telegram,
to the operator who sent the dispatch, ask
ing that it be repeated, but no answer Iris
yet lieen received. The fight occurred in
eit her Starr or Duval county, mid it is srp
posed that the (iar.a men great ly oitt
nuiiiliered the troops. The ranchmen who
have come into contact with (iarza within
the last three week- all state that he is
abundantly supplied w ith money and com
pels them to cither furnish cattle for lieef
and receive pay for the animals or take the
the alternative of having them taken by
I ation of the llamlit 4urxa.
The point where tiarza's forces Hre re
ported to be concent rated is in a remote
section and verj ditlic.ult of access by the
United States troops owing to the dense
chapparal. It is not a great distance from
the home of Ciur.a's father-in-law, who is
a prominent, ve.-ilt by and highly respect
ed raiichuian. He is said to lie not in sym
pathy with the bold movement inau
gurated by his sou-in la w.alt hough reports
to the contrary have been iu circulation
from time to time. Those who are ac
quainted wit h him assert that he is not a,
man who would lend his financial or moral
support io si'. li an undertaking.
