Do You Wish the
Finest Bread and Cake ?
It is conceded that the Royal Baking Powder is the
.urest and strongest of all the baking powders.
The purest baking powder makes the finest, sweetest,
lost delicious food.
The strongest baking powder makes the lightest food.
That baking powder which is both purest and strong
est makes the most digestible and wholesome food.
Why should not every housekeeper avail herself of
the baking powder which will give her the best food
with the least trouble ?
Dr. Haines, of Rush Medical College, Consulting
Chemist of the Chicago Board of Health, says: "Royal
is not only the purest, but the strongest baking powder
with which I am acquainted."

Xev Vui;k, Sept. 2. A suspected cruse of
cholera l.u been t .covered ia the heart
tf the tenement hou-e district on the east
ide. Shortly after 7 o'clock last night
Dr. IVck was summoned to the tenement,
Ko. 15 Orchard street. In a room on the
fourth floor of the huildiiip, he fonnd a
man lying on a sofa, suffering great agony.
The ninnaid that he felt pains in his
bones, that his t-tomach ached and that be
vomited freely. Dr. Beck immediately
became suspicious when he saw the case
and asked the man, who was a foreigner,
bis name and how long he had been in tbe
country. The man replied that his name
was Joseph Ktuainiz, and hd arrived in
this country Sunday last by the steam
ship Ktissia by way of Hamburg.
Caused a Panic in the Tenement.
The doctor, after affording the patient
tome temporary relief, reported the case to
the police, saying that the symptoms and
the fitct that the man only came to this
country recently by way of Hamburg led
hint to belit-ve that the man was suffering
from cholera. The jx.lice promptly noti
fied the board of health, and an inspector
was sent to the house. The house, 95
Orchard Mi ret, is a live-story tenemeut
bouse, occupied bv about twenty families.
There are over lto people living in the
place. They became greatly alarmed when
they heard that Ktuanlz, who was living
with hU sister, was lel;eved to be suffer

LOOKS LIKE IT 13 TOO LATE.
In View of the Above ew from New
York Government Action.
Washington, Sept. s. The president's
arrival at the capital was soon followed
by action in relation to cholera quaran
tine that looks like real business, but is
bardly up to the effective mark yet. A
circular wns issued from the tieasury as
loon as the course of action was decided
npon, which circular has one exception
that is "as wide as a i:;rn door." How
ever, the local quarantine may probably
be trusted to take care of the vessels ex
cepted. The circular is signed by Super
rising Surgeon General Wyman, Secretary
Foster.of the treasury, and President Har
rison. T xt of the Circular.
The document is addressed to customs
collectors, marine hospital service officers,
steamship companies, and state and local
boards of health, and says:
"It having been officially declared that
cholera is prevailing in vaiious portions
of Russia, Germany and France, and at
certain ports in Gr-at Britain, as well as
in Asia- and it having been made to ap-
pear that in: mi grouts iu large nn rubers
are coming into the United States from
the infected districts aforesaid, and that
they and their personal effects are liable
to introduce cholera into tbe United
States, ami t hut vessels conveying them
are thi-r ly a direct menace to the
public health; and it having been
bown further that under the laws
of tbe several states quarantine de
tentions may be imposed upon
these vessels a sufficient length of time to
Insure against the introduction of con
tagious diseases; it is hereby ordered that
no vessel from Dy foreign port carrying
immigrants shall be admitted to enter at
any port of tbe United Stotes until said
Tessels shall have nndergone a quarantine
detention of twenty days (unless such de
tention is forbidden by the laws.of the
state or tbe regulations made thereunder),
and of such greater npmber of days as may
be fixed in each special case by the state
authorities. J This circular to take imme
diate effect, except in cases of vessels afloat
at tbis daj, which will be made- the sub
ject of special consideration npon due ap
plication to the department."
Everybody Ia Working Together.
Speaking : of tbe I conference which, pre
ceded the in sin an oa of this circular (and
in wbicb the postmaster general- parti
cipated Secretary Foster aaidt "It is
wett lor tue puouc to know that state
authorities and the steamship companies

legal power to accomplish the prevention
of the introduction of the dreaded disease,

an absolute embargo of commerce, there

that it may creep in through seamen and
in other ways. The postoffice department
is cordially co-operatiug. From the
moment that thU department had know 1
edge of cholera in European ports vigor
ous measure were taken to place a cordon
of quarantine around the entire country.
Ibis let artment is gratified with the
'.horonghness with which the work has
Sa;gelrd by a Steamship Agent.
Dr. Giavis, representing the several lines
of steamers from infected ports, called on
Secretary roster yesterday and told him
that all the steamship lines would be glad
to cease bringing immigrants to the
Umtd Staters for a time if the govern
ment would issue an order prohibiting
tor.ir landing. He said as common car
ries they could not refuse to carry im
migrants unless they had good grounds
for doing so, based upon action in this
country. He suggested to the secretary
that the expense of keeping immigrants
iu quarantine for several weeks would be
sumoent reason lor suspending lmmtgra
tion pending the epidemic iu Europe.
NEWS FROM STRICKEN HAMBURG.
The Authorities I.ving About the Situa
tion New Caaes and Ieaths.
Havuckg, Sept. 2. The thermometer
fell to 70 degrees Fahrenheit yesterday,
and there were several light showers. The
air was cooler last night than it has been
in the last ten days. Nevertheless the
abatement of the plague has not been so
considerable as to bring much comfort to
the stricken city. The most trustworthy
reports give the number of fresh cases yes
terday as 61 and of deaths 247. The de
crease iu the number of fresh cases since
Wednesday was 42; in the number of
deaths 23. These figures do not agr- i.
however, with the reports of the Hamburg
officials, who have reduced the nuuibet of
deaths to 4". The city government h is
thus again declared for the fatuous policy
of supprcs-iiig the facts, and its reports
are received with ridicule.

The harm done to the rest of north Ger
many by of.ic.ial incompetency is enor

the last five days have carr.ed the infec

town. In I-. i beck, Lirgriitz, Kuda, Jter
gedorf, Xeuorch, in upper Silesia, Del
menhorsr, .V.tdgebarg, and more than a
dozen villages the breaking out of the
plague has Wen due directly, to the ar
rivals from this port. The number of
physicians i.ttending cholera patients is
qui e inadequate. This state of affairs
was apparent several daj sago, but tue
ruunic-iiu! authorities neglected to call fur
aid frcin other towns.
I'ontmen Falling by the Way.
Many pos: men were among the victims
yesterday and the delivery of the mails
has been much retarded. A postal official
said that the business of tbe postoffie hud
fallen off 5J per cent, iu the last five days,
and that apparently business correspond
ence was dead. All the factories iu opera
tion are working short-handed and many
factories have been closed for an indefinite
period. About lO.OCO persons left on the
railways yesterday. All these were citi
cens with their families, as non-residents
practically deserted the city early in the
week. Most of them left in such baste
thai their baggage will be rent after them.

LONDON, Sept. 2. The Berlin corre
spondent of t he London Xevrs says that
on Monday a poor old lady was taken ill
in the street and began to reel. A work
man supported her until she began to
vomit, wiiet. he quickly bolted. A crowd
gathered around the woman at a safe
distance, when suddenly a bricklayer,
after carefully wrapping a handkerchief
around his hand, seized hold of the suf
ferer and dmgi;ed her iu a brutal mant r
to the middle of the street, where he left
her, after kicking her prostrate form and
telling her in the vilest terms that he
would stop her from infecting their
