THE PACIFIC C0MMEECIA1 AI)VERTISEB, NOVEMBER 25, 1884.
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
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.
' A citizen of Columbus, O., has
made complaint against 200 diilerent
men for profane swearing on the
street, and had each arrested and
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
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
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.
