I was never an enemy of the confu sion of the old and new in Europe when Italy was all Europe to me. and now In England It was distinctly a pleasure. It is something we muBt ac cept, whether we like It or not, and we had better like it.

Monk, and the swords bestowed upon the faithful city by Edward IV. and Henry VII, I warmed my chilly hands about the medieval facts, and even fly to that uttermost antiquity when the Roman Praetorium stood where the Guildhall stands now.

I FROM TEXAS Some Coffee Facts From the Lone Star State. From a beautiful farm down in Tex as, where gushing springs unite to form babbling brooks that wind their sparkling way through flowery meads, comes a note of gratitude for delivery from the coffee habit. "When my baby boy came to me five years ago, I began to drink Postum Food Coffee, having a feeling that it would be better for him and me than the old kind of drug-laden coffee. I was not disappointed in It, for It en abled me, a small delicate woman, to nurse a bouncing healthy baby 14 months. "I have since continued the use of Postum for I have grown fond of It. and have discovered to my joy that it has entirely relieved me of a bilious habit which used to prostrate me two or three times a year, causing much discomfort to my family and suffering to myself. "My brother-in-law was cured of chronic constipation by leaving off the old kind of coffee and using Postum. He has become even more fond of It than he was of the old coffee. "in fact the entire family, from the latest arrival, (a 2-year old who al ways caits for his 'potie' first thing in the morning) up to the hpad of the house, think there Is no drink so good or so wholesome as Postum."

In Norway oats ripen under 69 degrees of north latitude, rye a half degree and barley a whole degree farther north. In Hammerfest, In latitude 70 degrees, the grass grows underneath the snow.

It is a sad commentary on the sex that Eve should so long have resisted the seductions of that apple. What, of course, overcame her was the desire to have something she knew she ought not to have—a per fectly rational and feminine desire.

The Best Example of What a Pure Baking Powder Should Be In Qual ity and Price. A popular and efficient baking powder re quires two things—first, that the food made with it shall be absolutely wholesome; second, that it shall be sold at a reasonable price. In talking about the healthfulness of baking powder, it must be remembered that baking powder is not an article of diet any more than compressed yeast. One would be quite as objectionable for food as the other, except that of the two, the bak ing powder might be preferable. We do not eat either baking powdeT or mast. What we do eat is the biscuit and >read raised with them. When placed upon the table no yeast remains in the bread and no baking powder in the biscuit. Both leavening agents have been destroyed in theaoration and the baking?; otherwise, in stead of light bread and biscuit we should have a mass of heavy, hard-baked dough. One well-known brand, K C Baking Powder, is sold under a $500,000 guarantee of its healthfulness and purity. There can be no doubt that a baking powder so guar anteed is absolutely wholesome and perfect ly reliable. Even if it did remain in the food it could do nothing but good. With regard to prioe, a baking powder as efficient and wholesome as is possible to make can be sold, at a fair profit, for ono cent an ounce. If it costs more the price is exhorbitant. Millions of pounds of K C Baking Powder, made by the Jaques Manufacturing Com pany of Chicago, have been sold at the above figure ail over the country ; and K C 'offers the best example at present on tho market of what a good baking powder should be, both in respeot of quality and reasonable price.
