PERFECT Perfect food is that which, while prepared in the most appetizing form, is also the most wholesome and nutritious. It should never be necessary to sacrifice the wholesomeness oi an article in order to make it more palatable, nor, as is too often the case, should we be compelled to take our bread or cake bereft of its most appetizing qualities in order to avoid injury to our digestive organs. The Royal Baking Powder possesses a peculiar quality, not possessed-by any other leavening agent, that applies directly to this subject. It provides bread, biscuit, cake, muffins, or rolls, which may be eaten when hot. without inconvenience by persons of the most delicate digestive organs. With most persons it is necessary that bread raised with yeast should 4ose its freshness or become stale before it can be eaten with safety. Distressing results likewise follow from eating biscuit, cake, pastry, etc., raised by the cheap, inferior baking powders that contain lime, alum, phosphates, or other adulterants. The hot roll and muffin and the delicious hot griddle cakes raised by the Royal Baking Powder are as wholesome and digestible as warm soup, meat, or any other food. A qualification which makes the Royal Baking Powder inestimable as a leavening-agent. HOUSE KEEFK EVERYTHING .COMPLETE FOB- HOUSEKEEPING p. J. KELLY & OO.'S.

Have you awakened fronva disturbed sleep with all the horrid sensations of an assassin clutching your throat and pressing the life-breath from your tightened chest ? Have you noticed the languor and debility that succeed the effort to clear your hroat and head of this catarrhal matter f What a depressing influence it exerts upon the mind, clouding the memory and filling the head with pains and strange noises t How difficult it is to rid the nasal passages, throat and lungs of this poison ous mucus, all can testify who are afflicted with catarrh. How difficult to protect the system against its further progress towards the lungs, liver and kidneys, all physicians will admit. It is a terrible disease and cries out for relief and cure. The remarkable curative powers, when all other remedies utterly fail, of Sanf ord's Radical Cure are attested by thousands who gratefully recommend it to fellow sufferers. No statement is made re garding it that cannot be substantiated by the most respectable snd reliable references.

Republican State Convention. The Republican electors of the several towns of this State and all other electors who believe in the principles of the Republican party as set forth in the National platform of that party are hereby no tified to send the usual number of delegates to the Republican State convention to be held in Allyn Hall, Hartford, on Tuesday, August 14, 1888, at 8 o'clock p. m., for the purpose of nominating candi dates for State officers and presidential electors. In accordance with the rules adopted by the Re- Sublican State convention in 188the following ad itional notices are given: 1. All primaries in the several towns for the ap- S ointment of delegates to any convention shall be eld at least five days before the meeting of said convention upon at least two days' notice, but if any town committee shall fail to call primaries under the provisions of this rule the men: bar of the State committee for the district in which such town committee resides shall call the necessary primaries upon reasonable notice. 2. It shall be the duty of the chairman of each town committee to send a copy of the credentials of the delegates from his town to the secretary of the Republican State Central committee at least four days before the convention.

The report of the committee of the house ' which has been investigating trusts will sot do the trusts any damage. It telle the house and the people that the trusts "have been intentionally formed so as to avoid if possi ble the charge that the trust as such or the trustees in that capacity either fixed the price or regulated the production of any arti cle of merchandise or commerce." The bills referred to the committee have been directed, the committee says, "against combinations to fix the price or regulate the production of articles of merchandise or commerce." The committee quotes the substance of the testi mony of the managers of trusts, to the e&eot that they do not fix prices or regulate pro. duction, and that the several corporations absorbed " are not In combination with each other." The committee points out that the trust agreements provide that the various corpora tions whose stock is surrendered to the trus tees shall preserve their identity snd carry on their business. In the sugar trust agree ment the provision Is that the several corpo rations shall maintain their separate omanl sations and each shall carry on and send dot its own business. In the Standard Oil trust agreement it is provided thst all property, real and personal, assets and buainess.Jshall be transferred to and vested in the said sev eral companies. The duties of ths trustees are restricted to the receipt of the dividends declared by the various corporations snd the distribution of the aggregate of them to the holders of the trust's certificate, pro rata. and to holding and voting upon the stock of the corporations. The trustees in both cases, upon ths stand as witnesses, specifically de nied that the trustees, as such, ever do sny other business than to receive and distribute these dividends and exercise the only other function given to them by the trust agree ment, that is, to hold ths stock of the vari ous corporations and exercise the rights of stockholders in such corporations. Well, well. Have we all been mistaken about the trusts! Do they not make monopo lies, kill competition, raise and maintain prices and regulate production! Hasn't ths house committee heard anything about this! The trusts will be. well satisfied with the re port of the committee, and they ought to be. EDirsKUL HOTBS. A hot August is predicted. It wQl be soon over. So far the summer ass been unusual ly agreeable. The Bepublioana of Michigan are talking about 80,030 majority for Harrison and Mor ton this fall. Workingmen oontinus to leave the party of free trsds in great numbers. They know very well where their Interests lie. It his hard to beat Chicago. Ths Inland Arohlteot of that city publishes the plan of twenty-eight-story building which will be 350 feet in height and will occupy a plot of ground sighty feet square. It will contain 733 rooms fitted for office purposes and will have twelve elevators. Soms of the papers in the far Wast have shown their independence of ths English language in writing up accounts of the elope ment of a St Louis editor, which took place few weeks sines. Already the words i'aloper," "elopee," "eloperdixed," "sloper dited" "elopediary" and "elopedernUst' have been coined to describe the action, and manv more modifications mar vet bs ex pected. One of the wsys hi which the great Dem ocratic campaign fund is spent is said to be the transformation of Democratic weekly papers in Ohio and other western States into dailies, sue oiled with editorial and other political matter from the literary bureau. Eleven such papers have been established in large Ohio towns whioh have hitherto been without dailv nswsuaoers. A Rood deal of money can bs sasily spent in this way. Second Auditor Dav has issued a clroular which will be of great advantage to veterans of the war who have not . yet drawn ths bounties to which they are entitled. The circular gives the text of the various bounty sets whioh have been passed, and tells ths soldiers how to go to work to get their money under them. He says that by carefully ex amining the provisions of the different sec tions sny soldier, or his heirs, oan ascertain the olass to Which they belong, and, when entity d, oan apply for their bounty without the Intervention of an agent. Bepresentative Honk, of Tennessee, says If the Republican managers will pay proper attention to Tennessee it will oast its elec toral vote for Harrison and Morton. There is no doubt but thst my State is overwhelm ingly for protection snd, even in the event of no support oominz from our friends in ths North, we will make s gallant fight, with fair prospects of winning. I hare received a large namber of letters from Democrats who say that they cannot swallow free trade, and who will vote the Republican ticket. The Democratic party is breaking np there and it will not be many years before the State will be solidly Republican. . . Postmaster Earrity of Philadelphia has done a-good thing in refusing to rent s box to anyone who fails to give his trne name and plane of residenoe, and has adopted the for. ther role of asking all applicants for - letters at the general delivery where they lira and telling them that the letters will be delivered forthwith by the carrier of the route. ' By thus doing, of oonree the inquirer is forced either to drop an improper corespondenoe or, by giving the eorreot address, to reveal it to his or her friends. It is to be fanoied that the reported indignation whioh Postmaster Harrity's action has aroused is the utterance mainly of those whose evil designs are thus thwarted. One of the most striking points of differ ence between the Republican tariff bill and the Hills bill will be in the matter of articles placed upon the free list. Ths articles added to the free-list by the Mills bill now pay a revenue amounting to about $29,000,000. The f ramsrs of the Republican bill have been very careful to pnt nothing on the free list in the production of whioh the workingmen of this country have to compete with in the cheap labor of other countries. Th"e total re daction made by the revision of the free list by the senatorial stib-committee is about $6,000,000. This bill, which altogether will reduce the surplus sufficiently to avoid all dangers to the business of the country, will be passed by ihe Senate and the very much threatened "extra session." which had been laid down as a "great card" for Mr. Cleveland to play, will be advoided. .

From Puok.1 Bullheads are born, not made, sfo manu facturer would ever place on the market such ridiculous combination of big end little tip, three horns snd no middle. They deserve no favor at ths hands of a credulous public- They have noressectablity. They look like a hybrid fruitage of a disreputable peroh and a dissolute eel. They are intolerably indolent. They won't work for a living. They just shdvo themselves under the eel grass, gape their monies, and wait and loaf. If a snail crawls in. thst is his ill-fortune. The bull- bead doesn't care much, anyhow. It takes laziness to catch bull-heads. Patience won't do it. The- sucbessf ul bull header is slower than a doctor's bill, and as undesirable. He is either too lean to stand nn. or too fat to walk. His stomach hollows so far in toward his spine that hs can't tell ths difference between hunger ana tne dsck ache. He indulges in plug tobacco. He will sit all day on the tip of a deoayed hemlock knot and ash. He waits. Happiness spreaas a dreamy mantle over turn. A bull-head bite Is - not an impressive event. It is not an emotional affair. It feels like a thump on the back. It is something like one iump out of a dull toothaohe. It is not so expressive, however. Sometimes they don't bite at all. They let the bait drop in to their mouths, if it ohooses. Mouth closes, Bull-head rubs his stomach on ths mud and waits. Fisherman waits, too. Bull-head waita longer. Fisherman waits for the "sob" to eo nnder Bull-head waits for fisherman to come down and get him. Fisherman waits for bull-head to some up snd see what has become of him. Finally hs pulls up his line to look at the worm, lane sticks at ths end. Ball-head is in no hurry. Neither is the fisherman. More pull. Still sticks. Lug: pull; slew, lszy, always lazy: - lazy at both ends. Ths thing comes np like dragging ths heel out of the mud. Suok gurgle swash. There he has;it. Ons little bull-head with a diminutive bull tail. It is great sport. It is so uniform. It doesn't excite the feelines, One always knows what to sxpeot a bull-head some time or otner. Six bull-heads are a gooi day's work for a practical fisherman;' More than that spoils the rnytnm. Theoretical fellows have al leged that they have taken more than that. They nave described their game "old lunkers." - They are ambitious crea tures, in the springtime of life. They carried their bait in their nip pocket corked, They are not credible witnesses. They exag gerate Tow, skin the catch. Straddle a plank by lantern light. Skin, smoke, cuff "skeet ers," smell fishy. ' Six Inches of bull-head yield two and one-third inches of skinned bull-tail. Fried and served hp hot, they taste like swamp malaria burnt into decayed chip. - On Fat Itlen. ILady Llndesy In Temple Bar. Why is it that ss a rule fat men ars so much more amorous than thin men! Is it that they grow fat on ths pleasant p slime of making love, whils mors Intellectual pur suits run to skin and bone! Many fat men ars simply rather stupid, good natured and inordinately vain; they are generally ths last, ana it may be that tne pleasant sensa tion of vanity is good nourishment. But it is surprising how often, given the opportuni ty, tne talc ox tat men rons ts mrtatlon to food. . Of course I don't mean to say thst f st man always talks of various dishes any more than that his conversation with a wo man usually includes an offer of marriage. On the contrary, perhaps, knowing his own weakness, he is more chary of his proposals than are his leaner brethren; by the same token he does not openly discourse on food, but he will ample off gently in its direction. He will tell you of the best dining places in every continental city he has visited, or remark on the wrstohed cooking here, the insufficiency of service there. Perhaps hs will tell you of his grapes or ths size of his Leucumbsrs, though grapes and . cucumbers are not much in his wsy. He sometimes prides hlmsslf on his cellar, but hs will of ten er know the ingredients of an ont of ths wsy curry, or have at his fingers' ends the nsmes of places where yon csn get choice and curious dishes. So in talking to woman his conversation runs tax little oompliments, and a semblance of love-making; he talks of marriage, hedges round it, and smiles and looks up to see if tney are pleased, rvnen ns speaks or wo- men it is from the old fashioned point of view thst he considers them, for ho is too fat to hurry on and catch np advanosd ideas. A woman he thinks should be pretty, irreve rent, saucy aad given to smiling and blush ing. It is by blush or a smile that man of his type are caught. Sha baa no business to know anything about books, except in s su perficial manner that will enable her to talk for five minutes only of poetry and novels. She should especially know nothing of poli tics. He does not like women with ideas of their own; they ought to fake them distilled and diluted from men in general and their husbands in particular. When a woman is married she should con cern herself with her home and her children (quite true), and as for intellectual interests nonsense I No man wants to talk seriously with a woman. She should know her place and keep in it. Home is for women and ths world for men; clothes snd children for wo men, books and politics for men. At a din ner party or in company women should no more presume to express opinions on ques tions of the day than should msn about bon nets, snd if they attempt to do so it is the duty of all sensible men to snub them. I have frequently noticed another curious trait; it is that after the first few indulgent minutes he diverts his conversation to his own sex, and will almost ignore mine, even in a party of half a dozen, for as a rule good breeding is not his strong point. There are exceptions of course, and' I have known some -charming ones. I sm only speaking of the majority. If I were a girl I would pray heaven to save me from a fat man. Well it has. Many fat men have made love, or tried to make love to me, but comparatively . few have come to the point. Your fat man is cautious, and does not commit himself to a direct offer unless he is certain that hs means it, and is equally certain that he will be ac cepted. As a rule he is certain of the latter, for modesty is not his besetting virtue; be sides he is of the type that thinks all women are sighing tor matrimony, longing for it : ths one grand treat of their lives, and of a refusal it is difficult to make him believe the reality. A BIO Id. AN 091 HIS mCSCLE. Se Bad Been Oat with the Boys and VssLoaklacfsr a Fight. IFrom the Detroit Free Frees. She was a woman of ready resource. Whils ths hour was late, two cr three even ing visitors yet tarried, and the momsnt shs heard her husband strike the door, she knew that he was booay, and also grasped her line conduct. Ha, ha!" she laughed as she rose, "hs oometh. He has been out rehearsing for amateur theatriuals, and it will be just like him to try to show off. He takes the part of Major Springer, who comes home full..' A hand was heard clawing over the door; a key was finally jabbed in the look and then the major entered. His hat was tipped back, his knees wabbled, snd he hung to the door and muttered: Whas zhis I shee 'tors nut! . Shay, Em'ly, whsxzer doing, eh!" ' "Delightful 1 splendid!" cried the wife, as shs clapped her hands. "Why, Harry, you are a grand success in your role!" "Whatzhatl Whazzer lathn 'bout! First time been shrunk in two year. Had lizzie time wiz zhe boys, you know!" 'tie an Ufa!! Booth couldn't beat It! exclaimed the wife. "Why, dear, you are a born aotor. It's just at natural as life." "Who shays I'm a liar. Whoop. I can lick any man in 'troit! Been out wiz 'er boys, you kaowl Shay, Em'ly. "Isn't he- natural, though!" replied the wife. "Ban upstairs, Harry, and change your clothes. You'll do. Nothing could be more perfeot." "Uhaze (ao) closes! sso zuri (jaaze noz- zingl Up stairs! Yes, go up stairs. Good (hie) nize, Em'ly. Regular angel. Been out wiz 'er boys, you know!" and the little woman clapped her hands aad laughed and praised, and got rid of her company under the impressioa that no tne had "smelt a mice." However, the last one was hardly off the step, when she bounced upstairs and confronted the bedazed man with the excla mation: Now, then, you old demijohn, prepare to get the worst wolloping a fool of a husband was ever treated to." And he got it. SHE TALKED WITH BEB SISTEH. Telephone Wbieh Interfered With the Unties of m Xy pewrlter. (.From the Pittsburg- Dispatch. Early one morning last week I chanced to be in the omee of a wholesale merchant down town at a time when the pretty little operator of the typewriter t ambled into a trap of her own making. Such a pretty girl, with very blue eyes, bright brown hair and an assortment of dim ples, is this deft manipulator of the typewriter keys. The telephone, which hung on the wall just bshind ths girl, whose desk was close to her employer's, in his private offioe, rang loudly as I took' a seat. I seized the opportunity to congratulate the merchant on his choice of so fair a secretary. Yes." said he in an undertone, "ahe is pretty and she is as wall behaved and quick at her werk as shs is pretty. Ths only thine I can complain of in her conduct is the held thst telephone seems to have upon her. She is engaged, I believe, to a nice enough fellow, a olerk in a broker's office, but he will persist in calling ner up on the telephone. He called her up so often on Monday last that i told her she must tell ths young man to wait until after business hours. She blushed snd said she wonld tell him. . "Since then that was three days sgo apparently he has not been near ths tele phone, out strange to say Marys mat's the girl'a name siatsr has taken to holding long conversations with her at all hours of ths day. The noise disturbs me, but I don't like to interfere with ths girl's domestic affairs. Just listen to ner nowl We did listen aad we heard something like the following: "Charlie didn't come to see me." An interval of silence. "Ton know hs called to see late." Interval. - "What's that! " "Oh, non sense: of course I shall co witb you. Will you call for me! What did you say! Oh, Bob's going, too." Interval. ' "You can if von like, but I just hate that girl, and if she's there I won't stay. Did you aap 6 o'clock! Make it 6:3(1." Interval. I wish I could; it seems an awful long time to wait. Oa, you musn't talk like that. Isn' there any one there!" Interval, during which ths girl, with ths receiver at her ear, laughs and blushes by turns and finally says; titteringly; "Not one I won't give yonone, yen bad boy. She hung up the receiver without another word and sat down, blushing .furiously. "How is your sister this morning!" ssid the merchant, with an accent on the "sis- tor." But Mary answsred never a word. , Flowers aa at Moral Aeons, H. P. Dunster In the Argosy. That the love of flowers is a mark of so cial improvement no one can for a moment gainsay. There is a humanizing influence in aaannintino' with flowers, that wherever it ex- iat nannnt fail to be productive" of good. We often call to mind a little incident whioh anme time aso cams under our own ODserva- tinn in confirmation of this. We were call ing on a friend a man of high standing in the medioal profession, whose opinion was always well worth his fee. We found him just home from a hospital meeting, agitated and vexed at something that hadeone wroncr. He began to speak full of his grievance. stopped short snd after a few minutes rang the bell and ordered the servant to onng mm a jug of cold water and his scissors. Then spreading a newspaper on his table, he col lected all the flowers that were in the many different vases in his room, cut their stalks, gave them fresh water and rearranged them. This done. "There now." he said. "I am an right now. In the whole pharmacopeia there's no better medicine for nervous agita tion than that nothing that sooner gets rid of anger, malice and all uncharitableness, with the physical ills that are sure to attend them, than rearranging cut flowers." And who that has tried it will deny that he was right! It would be interesting to test the moral influence of association with flowers by reference to the statistics of crime. Such . a reference would naturally support the same conclusion: and if so this prevailing taste for flowers would seem, without a doubt, to mer it every encouragement. - A Fiendish Joke , From the Boston Courier. The brutality with whioh newly married people are treated by their jesting friends is constantly reeeiving fresh illustration. At a recent Boston wedding a couple of sportive ushers disooysred ths train on which the bridal pair ware to leave town, and what bag- gags they had. Driving swiftly to tne sta tion they confided their plan to the baggage mater, and with his connivance they affixed to each handle of the trunks of the bride and groom an enormous bow of white satin rib bon. If the groom did net blaspheme whem hs sjw the decorated trunks peposited in the hall of the hotel to whioh he went he may sake rank with Job for patsence. Housekeeping Goods.
