Dr. Draw, I see by th report of tho Dairy and Food Commission of this Stato that in making analysis of the various baking powders of this country you reportjis a result of your work that the Royal Baking Powder contains and gives off in baking a greater per cent, of ' carbonic acid gas (leavening gas) than I any other baking powder made; is that true! 1 Ans. Yes, sir, that is n fact. Ques Doctor, you also fouud frorapx-. perimcnt that tho Royal Baking Powder will keep lonerind retain its qualities , butter than any other powder made, did ' you notr Ans. Yes, sir, I think it doe3. Ques. Now, the two most desirable j qualities in baking powder are the amount of carbonic acid gas it contains nnd gives off and tho length of time will keep, aro they not? Ans. Yes, sir. Ques. Then tho Royal Baking Po7.-d-or, possAfising these qualities, is the bef-t powder made, is it not? Ans.-W,'ll, tiiat would be the natural conclusion. Ques. Well, that is tho fact, is it cot? Ans. Yes, I think it is. I consider it ono of tho best baking powders made. Obituary.

C. tho question of th value of carbonate of ammonia as a leav ening agent in bread, or as used in bak ing powders, came up for discussion, ia which Pnr. L'akor. ot tho Univorsity of 'ennsvlvama nnd president of the- socio y; Dr. Ilichnrdson, late of the United -States department ot agriculture in Vashington; Mr. Wra. JIcMutne, lato 'rof. of chemistry m the University ot imois; Dr. E. II. Hartley, late chemist , of the Brooklyn, X. Y., board of health, ; and Prnr. ot chemistry of the Long j Island College, and others took part. The concensus ot opinion was over i whelming in favor of tho employment ot ammonia. It was stated as a feet that I. ammonia rendered the gluton of tho ' Hour more solublo than the original ! glateu, and that the bread in which this . action wa3 produced by carbonate of ammonia must bo nioro digestible aad hence more healthful, and becauee of the oxtromo volatility of carbonate of aminonin and its complete espulsioa from the bread in the process of baking it in one of the most useful, most health ful and most valuable leavening agents known. These conclusions are borne out by ' the verv elaborate ami nrhniictira o- ' . - 1 . 1 -rt -r . . . ..
