There are several good reasons, but there is one which distinguishes Rcyal from other baking powders. This reason, which every woman should know, is that Royal Baking Powder is made from cream of tartar, which comes from grapes. This means a healthful fruit origin. It means natural food as distinguished from mineral substitutes used in other baking powders. There is no alum nor phosphate in Royal Baking Powder. ROYAL BAKING POWDER CO New York GRAND JURY'S REPORT. To Hon. J. R. Li-nian, Judge Breckinridge Circuit Court: Wc, the giand jury, respectfully report that we have con cluded our work, having examined the county jail and puhlic property and find same in good condition. We have returned 197 indicttnentti, and attachments should issue for all persons subpoeancd, who have failed to appear, as per attached list. We caused processes to he issued and served on each and every witness before the Examining Court, and every one that was suggested to us by any person, in the cases held over from the County Court, cnvolving election frauds, and returned in dictments where wc felt the law and facts justified. We heard seventy-live or mote witnesses, in an effort to ascertain who mutilated the ballots in the two or three precincts tit the last November election. We concluded that the same person stamped them all, at the ?ame time and place, and same was not done in tho various precincts. We had the printer of the ballots, the County Clerk, and deputies, the persons who de livered them, and the olliccrs who received in the precincts, before us, and all other suggested witnesses. We ate wholly unablo to determine, when, where, and how the mutilation oc curred and all persons who had connection with the ballots of ficially ato exonerated, except as to negligence, if anv thero was on their part. The shooting at the Courthouse occurred as the result of excittnent, ocea-ioned by the discovering of a guard in the Clerk's otlico and accident on the part of one of those seeking the identity of the person or persons in the Court house, and tho?e connected therewith are exonerated. Tho newspaper reports have exaggerated what did occur and notto of the mitigating circumstances or explanations have been published. However, we have meant hereby to end an era of politics, in all parties, based on the wrong system, and to give timely warning of tho proposed ending of election corruption and irregularities in Breckinridge County, and wo ask that this report bo published, and for the support of the citizens of our county, irrespective of politics, in our purposes indicated.
