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

CHAMPION LINIMENT FOR RHEU
('has. Drake, a mail carrier at Chap
invillo, Conn., says: "Chamberlain's
Pain Halm is the champion of all lini
ments. The past year I was troubled
a gn at deal with rheumatism in my
shoulder. After trying several cures the
storekeeper hero recommended this
remedy and it completely cured me."
There is no use of anyone suffering from
that painful ailment when this liniment
can be obtained for a small sum. One
application gives prompt relief and its
continued use for a short time will pro
duce a permanent cure. For sale by
Laurens Drug Co., and Dr. B. P. Posey.
This quaint old English play was
written dining the reign of Edward IV
The name of the author is unknown,
hut it is generally believed that he
was a monk, who had had previous ex
perience in writing morality or miracle
plays. There can be no doubt that the
story itself is based on a parable nar
rated in the religious romance of Bar
laam and Jehosaphat, which is now
ascribed to John of Damascus, the
younger, afterward Patriarch of An
tioch, who died in 1000.
The character of Everyman repre
sents humanity in general. The story
of tiie play is simple but strong. The
Deity after telling bow the privileges
He gave mankind have been abused,
calls upon Death to summon Everyman
to appear before his tribunal without
delay, and to bring bis book of reckon
ing. The full meaning of this unex
pected command terrifies Everyman,
and the knowledge that his book of
reckoning is almost devoid of good
deeds, adds to his terror. He begs of
Death to grant him time, so that his
book of reckoning may be made clear,
but that iscurtly refused. He then of
fers him gold if the matter be deferred
for another day, and is again refused
any respite. Convinced that he must
obey the summons, yet dreading to
make the fearsome journey alone,
Everyman calls upon his relatives and
friends to accompany him and help
make his reckoning clear before God.
He first summons Fellowship, then
Kindred, Cousin, Goods and Riches,
Five Wits, Strength, Beauty, etc. At
first, they all readily promise their help
and comfort and swear to stand by him
in any distress; but on realizing what is
expected of them, become greatly
alarmed and all floe from him. Knowl
edge comes to his aid and shows him
how Good Deeds, who lies weak from
neglect, may be restored and made
able and ready to walk by his side.
Everyman repents and confesses bis
sins, and upon receiving the holy sacra
ment and ointment. Good Deeds be
comes strong and accompanies him on
his long journey.
The forceful and simple moral can
readily be seen in the sad deatli of
Everyman, forsaken by all his kith and
kin; alone, except for his Good Deeds
and an angel who await ; to carry his
soul to Heaven.
Everyman will be presented at the
City Opera HoU30, Saturday night,
March 18th, by Mr. Rudolph Magnus
and an excellent company of fifteen
people. Tickets on sale at Copeland's.
