TOPEKA STATE JOURNAL, SATUEB AT EVENING, JULY 28, 1900.
8 The manufacturers of Royal Baking Powder have always declined to produce a cheap baking powder at the sacrifice of quality or wholesomeness. The highest grade and most highly refined ingredients only are employed in Royal; hence its well known superiority. It is always the case that the consumer suffers in pocket if not in health by accepting cheap pow ders as substitutes for Royal Baking Powder, f&g ts Care must be taken to avoid bating: ponders made froni alum. Such powders are sold cheap, becausethey cost but a few cents per pound. "Just as good and cheaper" is a fraudulent cry, intended to deceive the unwary. Alum is a corrosive acid, which taken in food means injury to health, ROYAL BAKING POWDER CO.. 100 WILLIAM ST., NEW YORK. UUXTIXG SOUTH POLE. English. Expedition Finds Little for Its Trouble. San Francisco, July 28. The report of .(Explorer Borchgrievinck who was sent to the Antarctic in the interest of science in the auxiliary screw .bark Southern Cross, has been received here. The ex plorer says that ice was first encounter ed on December 30, 1898, and that two weeks later on January 14, land was first sighted. It proved to be Ealleney Island but near approach was impossible owin? to the ice. For weeks the vessel was iiemmed in the pack and preparations for a sledge journey to Victoria land were being perfected when the pressure slackened a. little. The Southern Cross had been hemmed in for 48 days and on the night of February 17 dropped anchor in Robertson's Bay. Stores were landed at South Victoria land. On the 23d of January a severe southeast gale oc curred. It lasted for 45 hours and two anchors were lout. The report states that but for the heroic work of the men the vessel would have been lost. On March 1 the Union. Jack was hoisted on Victoria land and on March 2 the South em Cross commanded by Captain Jen sen sailed for New Zealand leaving Borchgrievinck and a party of ten at the settlement of Cape Adare, 2,500 miles couth of Australia. The party remained in the vicinity of Adare for some months experiencing great hardships and suffer ing intensely from the extreme cold. On June 26 an attempt was made to reach the coast land to the west of Rob ertson's Bay where the camp was pitch ed, with the thermometer registering 40 degrees below zero. An island was discovered and named Duke of York Island. On this journey the lowest temperature registered was experienced, namely, 62 degrees below eero. Subsequently expeditions from Robert Eon's Bay were dispatched during Aug ust and September with the result that valuable collections were made and ob servations attended to. whenever oppor tunity offered. The land towards the southwest of Cuke of York Island in the admiralty range was discovered and named Geic n THE FOOD DJUNK Some people can'tdrink coffee ; everybody can drink Grain-O.

Ail grocara ; 15c and sea. islands, owing to its geological in terest. Duke of York Island itself was found to be cut through from east to west by broad deep quartz reefs. "It may here suffice to say,"' remarks Mr. Borchgrievinck, "that minerals of great value occur in this vicinity and that undoubtedly in time to come sci ence will receive that support from com merce which the progress of civilization justifies and that the future Antarctic exploration will never be in want of financial support. "Officially I took possession of Duke of York Island for Sir George Newnes. "Geic Island which was visited on several occasions is also rich in minerals." ISLAND POSTAL RATES.
