West Virginia Will Ask Congress to
Provide Fer Her Debt
l'arkersburg, W. Va., March 13.—
That a measure will be introduced in
Congress when it convenes in extra
session next month, asking the Feder
al Government to assume the obliga
tion of Vest Virginia's part of the Vir
ginia debt is in assured fact and many
people of this state believe Congress
will act favorably on such a bill. John
M. Hamilton, congressman from the
fourth district, said it was his inten
tion to int oduce such a measure. Mr.
Hamilton said it was established by
precedent that when the federal gov
ernment obtains territory by a war
measure it should assume the indebt
edness of the territory so acquired.

The manufacturers of Royal Bak
ing Powder have always declined
to produce a cheap baking powder
at the sacrifice of quality.
Royal Baking Powder is made from
pure grape cream of tartar, and is
the embodiment of all the excellence
possible to be attained in the high
est class baking powder.
Royal Baking Powder costs only a
fair price, and is more economical
at its price than any other leavening
agent, because of the superlative
quality and absolute wholesomeness
of the food it makes.
Mixtures made in imitation of baking powders, but containing alam,
are frequently distributed from door to door, or given away in grocery
stores. Such mixtures are dangerous to use in food. In England,
France, Germany and some sections-of the United States their sale is
prohibited by law. Alum is a dangerous mineral acid, and all
physicians condemn baking powders containing it
The label of alum baking gtowtlers must

Marquisettes In Pastel
Shades Are Also Seen
for Spring.
AMONG tne printed and bordered
chiffons and marquisettes are
shown beautiful new weaves printed
in monotones, soft grays, pinks, blues
and exquisite buff shades.
On a pastel ground the connected
flower pattern is printed in tones
ranging from the palest tint to a deep
rich color. These marquisettes are
suitable for tunics over a plain satin
An effective printed chiffon, also
used for tunics, is an exquisite ivory
white with a border of large red
roses. Still another pattern shows
large yellow daisies with brown cen
ters and green leaves.
Probably the newest of chiffon is
that with the satin stripe. These
stripes come in all widths, and in a
few cases are of watered satin.
Another is called ribbon etriped
chiffon, and this differs from the other
only in that the satin stripes are
edged with double cords. These new
chiffons come in all colors and in a
particularly attractive shade of gold.
A nov&lty chiffon in dark blue shows
a woven design of waved linos about
a quarter of an inch in width, while
there is no end to the variety of de
signs in beads and silk, on tbe em
broidered bordered chiffons.
One particularly noticeable pattern
bordered a black chiffon. Tie con
ventional design was carried out in
jet beads and beads of a rich jUI blue.
Not What He
''iVTOW, this preparation," ex
i-N plained the druggist, with en
thusiasm, "is something I can rec
ommend. It is the best bio >d puri
fier in the world. It is not a cure
all; it is just a blood purifier, and
the best ever compounded.
"The formula was handed down by
my grandfather, who obtained it of
the court physician at Buckingham
Palace. My grandfather had the
good fortune to rescue the court phy
sician when he was drowning, and
that great scientist rewarded him by
giving him this formula."
"It was a punk sort of a reward,"
said the prospective customer, help
ing himself to some cough drops. "It
seems to me that if I rescued the
court physician from a watery grave
he'd have to come down with some
thing more substantial than a vin
egar recipe or some dad-burned for
mula for sassafras tea. If he had
any unmarried daughters I'd insist
on leading the prettiest one to the al
tar. Your grandfather must have
been an easy mark, and I haven't
much confidence in your blood puri
fier if he handed down the formula.
Ma»y Separate Diseases.
"I don't believe it's what I want,
anyhow. You say it's just a blood
purifier and nothing else. That
would be satisfactory if I was the
only one in our family, but we are
too numerous to mention and each
one of us has a separate and distinct
"I need a blood purifier myself,
for I'm always breaking out with
boils, and I'm just so sick and tired
of wearing poultices on the back of
my neck that I feel discouraged. I've
been buying flaxseed by the sack for
a year and my Aunt Sarah, who
keeps house for the bunch of us, says
that she's heartbroken from mak
ing poultices for me.
"She wouldn't mind, only she is
crippled with lumbago and so sis
can't keep her thoughts on wh,U.
she's doing and she does make the
all-firedest mistakes. The other
morning she covered my neck with
buckwheat poultices and dished up
flaxseed pancakes for breakfast, and
she felt »o bad over it tbat she just
sat around moaning and crying all
"My s J 6ter Alice is all doubled up
with the neuralgia, and it would
bring tears to the eyes of a cast iroi
hitching post to hear her crying for
some remedy that will give her re
lief. We have bought everything
that ia advertised in tbe almanacs,
and they all seem to have some vir
tue but they won't do what they'ie
advertised to do. They remove super
fluous bair, or relieve a cold in the
head, but they won't cure neuralgia,
and Alice gets so desperate some
times we have to lock up all the table
knives lest she do herself an injury.
His Intermittent Mumps.
"Then my brother Alexander -has
intermittent mumps. It's really a
queer thing to see a grown up man
having the mumps about every so
often. You can't realize how that
poor fellow suffers. His head be
gins to rwell up until it looks like a
jack-o'-lantern, and he has to wear
a bushel basket instead of a hat, and
when he's eating he has to hold a
hand mirror in front of him so he
can see where hi 3 mouth is, and
he groans like a house afire."
"I teli you, sir, it would rend your
heart to hear them all groaning at
once—Aunt Sarah with her lumbago,
Alice with her neuralgia and Alexan
der with his mumps. Now, how
would I look going home to such a
house of suffering carrying a medi
cine that's only valuable as a blood
purifier? How could I face my Aunt
Sarah if she came hobbling to the
door hoping I had brought a remedy
for her lumbago? And what would
Alice and Alexander think of it?"
"I don't care a continental what
they'd think," replied the druggist,
sourly. .

Babies Two and Three
t Years Old Consume
B Quart a Day. *£#
PARIS, (Special) — Schoolmasters
and schoolmistresses invited to make
reports on the question of alcoholic
stimulants as used by their young
charges, have returned to French of
ficials some astounding facts. Thej
must be true as they are official.
"I know children", wrote one
teacher, "who put down half a pint
of brandy every day." Another
in a very different region, reported
that the children were encouraged
by their parents to drink liquors
stronger than wine. Schoolchildren
were in the habit of bringing with
them small bottles of wine to drink
at recess. "Some of them even ar
rived in a visible state of intoxica
tion," he reported. Another teacher
asking one of his small pupils what
he had done on the preceding day ;
a holiday, received the calmly utter
ed reply: "Why, I got drunk witb
Papa and Grandma."
From a teacher in the Pyrenees dis
trict came the report that many chil
dren he knew drank about a quart
of wine daily and this at the age of
two and thiee years.
It was shown also that in several
departments parents allowed and even
encouraged their small children to
drink brandy from coffee cups.
In all there were 60,000 papers sent
into the legislative committee inves

PARIS, (Spl.)—The president of
the national federation of horticultur
al syndicates has asked the minister
of agriculture to put a step to the
practice of dying flowers, as he ob
jects for asthetic reasons, to green
roses, even though they match the
dress of the woman wearing them.
Fashionable Parsiennes have dis
covered that by placing the stalk of a
cut flower in a chemical solution, the
petals can be dyed. Some of the
women go so far as to dye flowers to
match their eyes. Aniline dyes are
much used.
It is understood t'r.at the minister of
agriculture, himself an enthusiastic
amateur horticulturist, has promise.!
to use his arbitrary powers, to make
green roses and red violets punish
able offenses.

paper, ia the only man in France jus
tified in wearing a full dress suit in

The new trade piper is not a trade
paper but is intended ts a. guide for
men who have money to spend on
clothes but don't know how to select
