THE PACIFIC C0MMEECIA1 AI)VERTISEB, NOVEMBER 25, 1884.
7 Columbus the mercury indicated 25 and 20 degrees respectively belowr zero, while at Madrid, ia the same latitude, the greatest cold was 1C decrees above zero. Cuban sugar planters are on the verge of min. The taxes levied by Spain were as high as could JLe borne when prices were good. Now, that sugar is unpreci dently low, Cuba is feeling all the miseries that arise from dependence upon a single product. Heavy failures are numerous in the Island, and a serious panic is immi nent. Some of the volcanic ash which fell on the deck of the Norwegian bark Borjiid while she lay at anchor off th Great Komouia Islands, has been microscopically examined by ilr. J. Joly, of the Royal Soctety, Dublin. Two species of pyroxine occur- a monoclinic and a rhombic variety. The first was angite; the second presents many of the optical character istics of hyperstheae. Both contain much magnetite. A triclinic feildspar is very abundant, showing many different crystaline shapes. The list of modern books which are not to be allowed in the public libraries in Russia include translations of works by Agassiz, Bagshot, Huxley, Zola, Las saile, Lubbock, Lecky, Louis Blanc, Lewes, Lyall, Marx, Mill, Beclus, Adam Smith's 'Wealth of Nations,'; and 'Theory of Moral Sentiments,'' and Herbert Spencer's works. PROFANE SWEARING. ' A citizen of Columbus, O., has made complaint against 200 diilerent men for profane swearing on the street, and had each arrested and fined." The above paragraph is taken from an exchange, and suggests some thoughts in regard to the prevalence of the foul habit of profane swearing in this community. It is written in the Penal ;,Code of these islands that "whoever, having ai rived at years of discretion, pro fanely curses or swears, shall be pun ished by a tine of from one to six dol lars." But, as we all know, the pun ishment is never enforced. Not be cause people generally are in favor of swearing, but simply because people are unwilling to devote themselves to the task of seeing tho law carried out. Self-sacrificing men and women give their time and talents to the task of suppressing the evils of alco holic intemperance, and others to the prevention of cruelty to animals and children. Still others go about alle viating the sufferings of the poor, but none of these seem to care to commence a crusade against profane swearing. Here, in our midst, there is a gramP field for those who desire to do good in every way that they can. The task is by no means an enviable one if looked at from the point of view usually taken ; hut neither is auy undertaking that looks to the con trolling of men's vices. But the one who undertakes to suppress profane swearing here can only encounter a fraction of the disagreeabilities that philanthropists meet with. Beginning as they ought, by haunt ing the higher-toned pleasure resorts in tho city, they can eujoy an im munity from contact with thesodden, dirty, and vile-smelling, with whom the temperance advocate must be on intimate terms, in one sense, if he or she hopes to do any good. They can take part in billiards, base-ball, boat ing, cricket, yachting, etc., with positive advantage to the prosecution of their special work. Indeed, there is nothing to prevent such an one from taking a drink if he feels so dis posed; in short, the only self-denial that he would be obliged to practice -would be these: he must not use pro fane language himself, and he must cause others to be punished for doing so. Of course the one who undertakes to suppress profane swearing here or anywhere else will be met by ridicule, dislike and contumely, but as the paragraph quoted at the head of this article does not mention that the citi zen of Columbus, O. was thought any the less of on account of his efforts, it is fair to presume that he suffered no particular martyrdom, and probably did considerable good. - The Mt. Cenis and St. Gothard tunnels, which are now perfectly equipped and preserved and lighted by electricity, are said to have more than doubled Italy's traffic with her transalpine neighbors.

REPORTS OF GOVERNMENT CHEMISTS As to Purity and Wholesomeness of the Royal Raking Powder. " I hayo tested a package of Royal Baking Powder, which I purchased fa tho open market, and find it composed of pure and wholesome ingredients. It is a cream of tartar powder of a high degree of merit, and does not contain either alum or phosphates, or other injurious substances. E. G. Lovb, rh.D." "It it a scientific fact that the Royal Baking Powder is absolutely pure." " H. A. Mott, Th.D." 44 1 have examined a package of Royal Baking Powder, purchased by myself to the market. I find it entirely free from alum, terra alba, or any other Injurious sub stance. IIjknkt Morton, Ph.D., President of Stevens Institute of Technology." " I have analyzed a package of Royal Baking Powder. The materials of which It is composed are pure and wholesome. S. Dana Hates, State Assayer, Mass." The Royal Baking Powder received the highest award over all competitois at the Vienna World's Exposition, 1873 ; at the Centennial, Philadelphia, 1576 ; at the American Institute, and at State Fairs throughout the country. No other article of human food has ever received ruch high, emphatic, and uni versal endorsement from eminent chemists, physicians, scientists, and Boards ot Health all over the world. Notb. The above Diagram illustrates the comparative worth of various Baking; Powders, as shown by Chemical Analysis and cxperiment3 made by Prof. Schedler. A one pound can of each powder was taken, the total leavening power or volume to each can calculated, the result being as indicated. This practical .test for worth by Prof. Schedler only proves what every observant co.i:au:;er of the Royal Baking: Powder knows by practical experience, that, while it costs a few cents per pound jsoxe than ordinary kinds, it is far more economical, and, besides, affords the advan tage of better work. A single trial of the Royal Baking Powder will convince any fSjy minded person of these facts. J While the diagram shows eome of the alum powders to bo of a higher degree of 'strength than other powders ranked below them, it is not. to be taken as indica, flfig that they have any value. All slum powders, no matter how high their strength CD to ba avoided as dangerous. ROYAL HAWAIIAN HOTEL. GEORGE El. FA3SETT, - Manager..
