Children especially are fond of dainties,
and the housekeeper must look carefully
to their food.
As good cake can be made only with
good eggs, so also a cake that is health
ful as well as dainty must be raised with
a pure and perfect baking powder.
Royal Baking Powder is indispensable
in the preparation of the highest quality
of food. It imparts that peculiar light
ness, sweetness and flavor noticed in the
finest cake, biscuit, doughnuts, crusts, etc.,
and what is more important, renders the
food wholesome and agreeable to young

MILLIONAIRE'S POOR STOMACH.
The worn-out stomach of tho over
fed millionaire is often paraded in the
publio prints as a horrible examp'o of
the evil attendant on the possession of
great wealth. But millionaires aro not
the only ones who are afflicted with bad
stomachs. The proportion is far more
among the toilers. Dyspepsia and in
digestion are rampant among these
people, and they suffer far worse tor
tures than the millionaire unloss they
avail thcmsolves of a standard mcdl
olne like Green's August Flower,
which has been a favorito house-hold
romodyvfor all stomach troubles for
over thirty-live years. August Flowor
rouses the torpid liver, thus creating
appetite and insuring perfect diges

syatem and makos life worth living,

Is the lightest wator on the market. Wo realize that this id claiming a, great
deal, and we could not afford to make this assertion unless wo knew that wo
could prove it to ho true. But it does not tako an expert to test tho softness of
a Mineral Water. When carbonating a mineral water, if it is a hard wator the
gases will not be absorbed in tho water, and when tho bottle is opened, the pas
es escape, and tho water Is left flat and hard, whilo if it is a soft water, like
White Stono Lithia, it will retain its gases for hours after boing unstopped.

the White Stone Lithia Water:

White Stone Spring, S. C.
Dear Sir?I do unhesitatingly state
that tho eflicacy of White Stono Lithia
Wator, not from its splendid analytical
analysis, but from my own personal ob
servation, is a very valuable agent in
eliminating the impurities of tho blood
through its markod diuretic effects,
and in so doing restoros the secr.itory
and excrotory organs of tho body to
their normal physiological stato. So in
this proves Its properties to bo of great
value in assisting digestion, assimila
tion and increasing the appetite There
fore wo can rnoogni/.j it as a mlmral
wator of powerful tonic properties and
should bo highly recommonued in stom
ach and liver disorders, blood disturb
ances, rheumatism, gout, diabetes,
Brlght'8 disease, and in all inactive
conditions of tho kidneys and eonvales
I feel myself, that I am justly duo an
acknowledgement of tho happy effects
I derived from Its use.
