He also states that purple Dutch clover Cfriftili'nm nfii's), which we nil know so well, is now accepted as the shamrock. The tradition runs that St. Patrick, when iiriMicMrifT in Krln. fathered a shamrock and used it to illustrate the doctrine i.f the IIolvTrinitv.

In fact, a judicious use of Mishler's Herb Hitters at this season of the year w ill prevent the recurret.ee of this disease, even in those wno nave never passed an autumn without It. An expe rience of twenty years proves it to ' e the greatest antl periodic known to m-dical science. There are, nerhapn, no diseases so sub ject to climatic changes as affections n the kidneys.

Note The above Diaoiiam illustrates the comparative worth of various Baking Towders, ns shown ly Chemical Analysis and experiments made by Prof. Schedler. A pound cu of cadi powder was taken, the total leavening power or volume In each can calculated, the result being as indicated. This practical test for worth by Trof. Schedler only proves what every observant consumer of the Royal Baking Powder knows by practical experience, that, while it costs a few cents per pound more 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 fair-minded crson of these facts. While the diagram shows some of the alum powders to be of a higher degree of strength thai! other powders rauked below them, it Is not to be taken as indicat ing that they li-ive auy value.
