free coinage as is the mine owner, the
battle will he won.
A statesman from lowa proposes
that the Goddess of Liberty he per
mitted to wear a new gown. Kvery
true woman will appreciate the jus
ticc of this move when she reflects
that the goddess' clothes arc ridicu
lously out of fashion.
The state officials of Colorado have
moved their offices into another build
ing. involving an extra outlay of about
*»,000 a year for rent. Those win

been needlessly alarmed.

son was attired in a long black coat
and a little how tic." Well, it maybe ;
ail right in the neighborly circles *.f ;
Mr. Stevenson's home at Bloomington, i

Some of the wealthy club men of
Chicago arc very much incensed on ac
count of some remarks made a few
days ago by S. W. Allcrton. the mil

that he knew a lot of men who were
“not nearly so good to their families

they make too much of a specialty of
the business there.

A MATTER OF HEALTH.
11. I.ooU Authorities Eianlnlai tht
flaking Powdtn.
[St. Louis Globe-Democrat [
At the request of Health Commis
sioner llrennan, the city chemist has
collected xu tit pie* of the various bak
ing powders sold in St. I.ouis and sub
jected them to analysis for the purpose
of obtaining for the public bencilt in
formation us to (heir composition and
character, whether wholesome or other
wise.
Owing to the fact that alum baking
powders are produced at a cost of less
than four cents a pound, while in ap
pearance they are hardly distinguish
able from a pure fcreum of tnrtd.r pow
dor. costing from eight, to tori times as
much to manufacture, there have been
many of them put upon the market,
and great efforts mode to substitute
them for the more wholesome cream of
tartar compounds.
Of course, such powders afford wide
margins of profits both to the manu
facturers and dealers and it is not un
usual to find them for this reason
recommended and urged upon custom
ers who would not, knowing their true
Character, use them under any consid
eration:
City Chemist Sullivan's report shows
one pure cream of tartar powder only
(the Royal); one cream of tartar pow
der containing free tartaric acid; one
phosphate powder containing sulphate
of lime, and that all tlio other brands
are made from alum. The samples
ranged in strength from 13.47 per cent
of leavening (carbonic acid) gas found
in the Royal, to 0.08 per cent found in
an alum powder.
The general usefulness of a bnkin*
powder depends largely iipoil the
quantity of Ifeavcning gas It gives off.
A powder containing thirteen percent,
of gas will go more than twice as far -
that is. one pound of such powder will
raise more than twice as much Hour—
Os one that evolves but six per cent.
The economy thus shown, however, is
not the greatest consideration. The
low strength powders leave a large
residuum in the food, which, being c f
alum in its various forms, renders the
food positively unwholesome.
Upon this point, and in describing
the character of the baking powder
found of highest strength, the City
Chemist says: “A high leavening
power is requisite. Pure ingredients
in proper combination quicken and in
crease the production of carbonic, acid
gas. In this the Royal excels all oth
ers. It is the highest in strength, in
fnbrique a faultless arrangement of
agents, pure and wholesome, free from
adulteration with lime, ammonia or
ilium.”
The result of these tests will be read
with interest and will prove of great
benefit to housekeepers by enabling
them to distinguish the pure from the
numerous impure and unwholesome
powders found in the market.

RIDICULOUS DECORATION.
Fray Never Tie Klbbons on the Log* of
Your Fla no.
Thoro is such a thing as carrying
tho homo decoration business a little
too far. It can be carried ho far as to
almost set on oil go the toetli of tho
beholildrs <>/ it. 1 believe in orna
menting nnd decorating one's house
to it certain degree. Indeed, I am a
•great lover of pretty things of every
sort, but whdn homo decoration
roaches as far as tho legs of one’s
piano it's time to cry "halt!”
1 was in a house not very long ago
in which all of the piano legs wero
ornamented with huge bows of yellow
and cardinal ribbons, a couple of cast
off sashes evidently having been used
for this purpose. Now 1 tun quite
sure that till of my readers will agree
with mo that tho less Oho tries to
ornament piano legs tho better it wLU
be for Iho feelings of one’s friends.
No amount of ribbori or Of any
thing else can make piano legs beau
tiful. 1 would as soon think of put
ting piano legs in trousers us into
ribbons. One would not lie any moro
incongruous than tho other. Of nil
things, piano legs are least fit for
decoration and the home decorator
will be wise not to trillo with them.
Leave them as their maker made
them, since they stand so far outside
of the realm of artistic decoration.
And I, for one, have never been
able to see anything beautiful or ar

Amber.
Genuine umber is becoming scarcer
every year, and it will not bo long be
fore n real amber cigar bolder or
pipestem will be a rarity and ft lux
ury. The true amber is a fossil gum
which was produced hi largo quanti
ties by trees having a resinous sap,
which flowed down the trunk and
gathered in masses at the roots. It
is found in the ground of marshes and
other places wiioro forests flourished
in former times, and iH also secured
by dredging. The Italtiu and Hlnck
seas uud tho German ocean formerly
produced it in considerable quanti
ties,but their supplies are now pretty
much exhausted. Thcro is a little
satisfaction, however, in knowing
that tho imitation is just as good as
the real. On this account wo will
still bo able to smoke pipes and uso
cigar and cigarette holders that look
and taste just us good as tho genuino
umber. .Save for theso purposes very
little amber is used in this country,
but in India and China large lumps of
tho product aro in great demand. For
some cause or other an umber idol is
far more highly prized in those coun
tries than even golden gods, and as a
result the finest pieces of amber go to
tho Fast to make deities for tho
pagans.
North China Fairs.
A writer in tho North China Her
ald describes the fairs in Northern
China. There are but two months in
tho year when tho pooplo do not hold
large fuirs at convenient centres, at
which all imaginable wants of cus
tomers are supplied. Tho exceptions
are the sixth month, whoa the roads
are generally impassible, and the
first, which is devoted to rest and
recreation. 'There is u constant suc
cession of theso gatherings in any
given district, at which it is not un
common for 10,000 persons to be con
gregated. There is no method of ad
vertising the exact date at which a
fair will begin except by red slips of
[Riper [»ut up in public places, and
tiiese are generally misleading.
