That the Royal Baking Powder is-the oldest
and purest baking powder, and the greatest
in leavening strength.
That it is free from every injurious substance.
That it makes lighter, sweeter, more nutritious
and healthful food than any other.
The Royal Baking Powder Company refines its
own cream of tartar in its own mammoth re
finery, and thus insures its unvarying quality.
There is used in the manufacture of the Royal Baking
Powder more than half of all the cream of tartar consumed
In the United States for all purposes. This is required
and must be chemically pure, and chemically pure cream
of tartar could not be obtained in the markets of this coun
try or Europe, which necessitated the building of special
works, and the employment of special processes.
All other baking powders, when analyzed, snow
traces of lime and sulphuric acid, which arise
from the impurities of the materials bought
in the market, which their manufacturers use.
This is why the Royal Baking Powder is the
only absolutely pure baking powder made.

If within our homes we would vao the Barn
That we use wbea we visit next door.
And search for the flaws as we did over there,
I think we would find many more.
If we'd use the same "specks" when wo look

Or astonished we'd be, never fear!
But I find all possess (where'er they may live)
For their own use a kind deftly made.
With tie glasses all darkened, to hjde half the
So their own faults remain In the shade.
But the ones which they use when at others
Have the glasses transparently clear.
With a power to magnify things twice the size
That the same through the dark ones appear.
Now I think that the world would much hap
If the specks, once for all, wo would change.
And within our own rooms use tho spectacles

Would melt into outlines so fair
We would find that the world was a beautiful
And good people lived everywhere.
Bertha Packard Englet in Good Housekeep
There are few who have not heard or
read of the great French revolution of
the last century, when cruel men seized
on the government of France, when
human life was of no account, and when,
as if wearied with its wickedness, God
seemed to have hid his face from the sin
No one may connfc up the tears that
were shed, the moans that were made,
the hearts that were broken in those
dreadful times; but here and there out
of the great mass of human misery his
tory has preserved a record of the trials
and sufferings of some hapless ones, read
ing which we shudder and thank God
that we live in happier days.
Some few years after the Reign of
Terror as this outbnrst of sin and mad
ness was well named a man of middle
age entered a small inn in Germany and
called for refreshments. His manners
were timid and shrinking, and he looked
as if he might just have recovered from
some terrible illness he was so strange
ly, ghastly pale.
The Landlord supplied his wants, and,
half curious, half in kindness, he made
some remark as to the stranger's appear
ance, coupling it with the question,
"Did he want aught else for his com
fort?" "Nay, nothing," said the pale man
hastily; "I have food and light and air,
what could I want more?" and he sighed
"My friend," said the landlord, seat
ing himself, "you speak as if you had
known the want of these things. Have
I guessed aright?"
His guest looked up.
"Would you hear my tale?' he asked.
"For years I have kept silence, but to
day it seems as if it would lighten my
heart to speak. Listen and beieve it if
you can. Less than seven years ago I
was a gay, light hearted youth in this
our quiet fatherland. Having no near
relations, I wag led to visit some distant
ones who had lived for many years in a
small town in France.
"My uncle, as I called him out of
friendliness, was a kind, good fellow,
well known and respected in the place,
where he carried on the craft of a watch
maker, and he proposed that I should
become his apprentice and partner. I
liked the little town, I liked say uncle,
I liked my aunt, and I soon gave my
consent. They had no children I thank
God for that now but my aunt's kindly
soul could not be content without young
people around her, so Bhe kept and
clothed two house maidens, children of
some noor neighbors. Trim and neat
they looked, too, wearing the costume of
that part of Germany from whence my
aunt came, a pretty fancy of her own;
it seemed qnaint enough in a strange
"It was a happy household. No won
der I was glad to belong to it; but, alas!
it was soon (to be swept away by terrible
affliction. For some time we had heard
of strange troubles going on in Paris and
the large towns, but our little place was
still quiet. One morning, however, we
woke to find evervthinsr in confusion.
Our mayor had been ordered to resign,
and his place was to be filled by some
one sent from Paris.
"Still, we never dreamed of what fear
ful misery this was the forerunner. We
had no time to dream, either, the blow
fell so suddenly. There had been a stir
going on in the market place for the two
days following the arrival of the new
official; but my uncle and I were busy
over a discovery which he had made in
our trade, and we were less than usual
in the streets.
"At nbon, on the third'day, however,
he went out for a stroll to rest his eyes
and look about him for a few moments.
My aunt and her maidens arranged as
usual the midday meal, and we were all
ready to sit down, only my uncle was
missing. He was usually so punctual
that we wondered and waited, and at
last we dined without him. At the
close of the meal I stepped out to look
"I had not got a dozen yards from our
house when I met our baker's wife, her
eyes staring out of her head.
"'Go back,' she said, 'go back! It is
too late. The monster the wretch! He
has executed the honest man, without
even the farce of a trial, on the accursed
"I was petrified with horror. Conld
she be sneakine of mv uncle, so rer.peeted,
so quiet as he was? It was too true. The
wretch in office had lost no time, but had
begun his work of bloodshed at once, and
my uncle was his first victim, his only
crime being that he was of foreign birth,
and had sheltered under his roof, some
months since, a poor Swiss. I retraced
my steps to the house. My aunt's anxions
face met my troubled gaze. She had
begun to suspect evil. The two girls
waited fearfully in the background. I
tried to speak, but I turned away and
burst into tears. 1 was young tnen.
Master Landlord, and had tears to shed.
My aunt passed me by and rushed into
the street, straight to the market place,
I could not follow. What happened
there was told me later.
"Wild with agony at her hrtsband'a
fate, my gentle, loving aunt had burst
into a Tood of reproach of his mnrtlar.
In these days this was crime encaga for
the heaviest panihmeat, and before
evening she bad fuvtl the same fate as
"Thelleign of Terror had indeed begzc

the fate wHich had befallen their pro
tectors, and I was meditatinz in a half
stupefied way the same measure, when t
knock came at the door, and two men.
who had often eaten and. drunk -at my
uncle's table, came in and made me a
prisoner, confiscating all the possessions
of the family to the state.
"In those days a man's foes were often
f iey of his own household. I offered no
resistance; the shock of the day had
completely unmanned, me. I made cer
tain that I, too, should die that night.
But my time was not yet come.
"In consequence of the lateness of the
hour I was taken to the town prison, a
dismal building, which I had never
known to be occupied. There I was
thrust into a deep dungeon, and left in
total darkness till the morning, when I
doubted not I should be conducted 'to
the same cruel fate as my poor relatives
had met. But morning came, as I had
guessed by the sound without, and still
no summons. Worn out with suspense
and waiting, I fell asleep. "vVhen I
awoke hunger and thirst oppressed me.
Happily I had stored some bread and
meat and a small bottle of wine in one
of the pockets of my coat preparatory to
my intended flight. Of this I now ate
and drank. No one came nigh me, and
yet I could hear sounds as if wretched
prisoners were being led forth out of
neighboring cells, doubtless to death:
for they wept and pleaded vainly as it
Eeemed to me.
"But the third day a great stillness fell
on the priEon. I could not understand
it; my senses were enfeebled for want
of food, for my small stock had long
been "exhausted and I almost lacked
strength to wonder why I was left to
live so long. Presently arose an awful
terror, lest this should be my sentence,
to perish miserably for want of food in
this damp dungeon. Death on the scaf
fold appeared light by comparison. I
clamored at my prison door. I shouted
as loudly as I could all to no purpose.
Then I burst into an agony of tears; my
fate was too dreadful to bear. "With the
soft nature of my youth I pitied and be
moaned Tnyself sorely. All at once
words came into my mind that I had
learned years ago as a text in the school,
'Fear thou not, for I am with thee; be
not dismayed, for I am thy GocL'
"They came like a ray of light into
my prison, and I clung to the promise
as if it had that moment been made to
me by a pitying God. I felt soothed
and hopeful, and in this condition I
sank back in a doze or swoon.
"How time passedI could not tell:
day and night to me were alike in my
cell. I woke up to find light and warmth
and kindly faces about me. Slowly 1
regained consciousness enough to under
stand what they told me. I had lain
five days forgotten, the stillness I had
noted the third day was accounted for
by the fact that the news had just
reached our town of the death of one of
the greatest leaders of the revolution.
and the consequent decline of the party.
In fear of his life, our terrorist mayor
had fled, and the old mayor, resuming
power, had orderedthe prison doors to
be set open. 1, in -my solitary sell, had
been forgotten, and but that some one
had been sent to examine all the cells
and collect the fetters used therein, I
might have perished most miserably.
As it was, I was carried out perfectly
senseless and brought to life with Bome
"I am safe now, as you see, comrades,
in my own country, but the anguish of
those few days will never be forgotten.
I bear about with me in my face the re
membrance of it. Daily I thank God
for light and air and food, and yet these
good gifts of his fail to make my heart
rejoice. Still those dreadful days in the
dungeon have given me a firm reliance
on his mercy, and I know that I shall
one day bo joyful again in the city of

Conversation Without the Tli.
Educated New Yorkers pay too little
attention to the th-less tongue. It is full
of beauties, and some of the university
extension or university guild men who
propose to settle in the darkest east side,
or where boils Hell's Kitchen, or amid
the conflicts of Battle Row, will doubt
less study the language of the natives
and write its grammar and its vocabu
lary. One sometimes hears engaging
sentences of it in the elevated cars. I
heard two young men of tender age but
tough appearance conversing earnestly
in a Sixth avenue elevated car the other
One asked the other how he was com
ing on with his sweetheart, "How's de
girl, hey? The answer delivered with
evident irritation and resentment, re
vealed a beautiful gift of metaphor, "Oh,
she give me de frost, see!" The canker
ing of the bud of love by envious.sweep
ing frost couldn't be expressed more elo
quently. There will be a th-less poet
yet. As for what his gift for the terri
ble will be, judge by the villainous but
powerful oath of disculpation which the
members of the now extinct Whyo gang
had to take, "If I done dat, may I be
as bad as my mudder." New York
What the Pen Do.
It is estimated that 8,500,000 steel pens
are consumed daily. It is interesting to
think what they do. For instance, they
make love, write gushing poetry, scrape
out the briefs in a breach of promise
suit, cut and thrust at reputation,
scratch out realistic novels and political
editorials, chronicle sensations, puff this
and belittle that, and, in short, do more
to make and break, to save and destroy,
to civilize and degrade tho human race
than anything else under the sun. De

Unsafe Money to Carry.
My father was once with his ship at
Rangoon. One day during a heavy
thunderstorm he was driving in a cab to
his agents, when he saw a "coolie"
(porter) drop down in the street. He got
out of the cab at once and went to the
man, but he was dead. There was a
burned patch in his waistcloth, on the
right" side, and some blackened copper
"pice" lay on the ground. The man had
just received them for carrying a load,
and. as the clothes of the poorer natives
of India and Bnrmah have no pockets,
he had twisted them into his waistcloth,
and this money must have attracted the
lightning. But the most curious part of
it was that the queen's head on one of
the coins was. clearly impressed on his
ride, awl evn tho words "Qnesn Vic
