The water in the river was so high that he could not ford it at the mill and was obliged to come by the way of John Hadley's, and then to drive through two feet of water on the Hadley road. Then he had to come by the way of the brick yard, owing to the high water on the river bottom. This was the rpute that was traveled eighteen years ago. The Pomme de Terre river has been higher the past week than ever before known to the oldest inhabitant. Jas. H. Browne's Theatre Co. will play at Court House hall on Friday and Saturday evenings next. This is a first-class company and give the best of satisfaction wherever they appear. The Fargo Argus says of this company: Last night knocked all other nights silly at the opera hoiise. The Browne Theatre Co, played to a more than packed house, several tickets having to bo cashed as no place could be found for standing room. The com pany team—Alice Marble and J. Knox Gavin—were immense and the audience were kept roaring at their funny antics. The songs between acts were as usual a great success and there were no waits. The Pioneer Press reporter has this to say of the Stevens county exhibit at the state fair: The Stevens county exhibit is in charge of a committee composed wholly of women from the town of Morris, In the midst of this display is a banner showing an im mense rooster made wholly of horti cultural products. Even considering the rough and ungainly nature of the material, the great rooster is well formed and worthy of the admiration bestowed upon it." The Minneapolis Journal says: "If the Stevens county exhibit does not receive a special pre mium the committee will have failed to recognize the enterprise and origi nalty of the people of Morris, who have sent a delegation composed en tirely of ladies to arrange and display the field and farm products."

The driving park officials have used every effort to give the people a grand exhibition of speed and hope for a liberal patronage. The track has been regraded since the July meeting the grandstand has been roofed and rendered pleasant, and every facility for getting to the ground has been attended to. Busses will leave the Metropolitan Hotel ever}* live minutes, and the faro will be but ten cents each way.

So far as can be judged from the official reports the "Royal" seems to be the only one yet found by chemical analyses to be en tirely without one or the other of these substances, and absolutely pure. This, it is shown, results from the ex clusive use by its manufacturers of cream of tartar especially refined and prepared by patent process which totally remove all impurities, The cost of this chemically pure cream of tartar is much greater than any other, and it is used in no baking powder except the Royal, the manufacturers of which control the patents under which it is refined. Dr. Edward G. Love, formerly ana lytical chemist for the U. S. Govern ment, who made the aualyses for the New York State Board of Health in their investigation of baking powders, and whose intimate knowledge of the ingredients of all those sold in the market enables him to speak author itatively, says of the purity, whole someness and superior quality of the Royal. 'I find the Royal Baking Powder composed of pure and wholesome in gredients. It is a cream of tartar powder, and does not contain either alum or phosphates, or other injurious substance." Prof. Love's tests and the recent ok ficial tests by both the United States and Canadian Governments show the Rpyal Baking Powder to be superior to all other in strength and leavening power. It is not only the economical in use, but makes the purest, finest flavored and wholesome food. Read This Slowly.

D-PRICE'S /seal" Baking My ^Powder- Powder Used in Millions of Homes—40 the StaudsrcL FACTS AND FANCIES EDITED BY'fcEV. An island of 16 acres, near the Hor ticultural Building, will be an impor tant part of the floral exhibit, being covered with flowers. There will be 50,000 rose bushes upon it. The fair will open in May with a million tulips in bloom. There will be a "proces sion" of flowers in their season during the six months. There are now three main entrances to the grounds. Admission is at pres ent 25 cents, and from one to three thousand enter daily. Great precau tions against fire are taken. Not only is all smoking forbidden, but at every turn one sees notices in German, Ital ian and English warning against the use of any sort of fire-works. During the fair, and the three days of the dedication next month, the admission will be 50 cents. The size of the'ehief buildings is prodigious. One may be pardoned a few adjectives in talking about them, for the like was never seen in the world before. Take the main build ing for Manufactures and Liberal Arts, and you have one of the wonders of the world—the largest building ever built under one roof. It covers thirty acres of ground, and the galler ies make 14 acres more of floor space for exhibits. It is three times larger than St. Peter's Cathedral in Rome, and four times larger than the Roman Coliseum. Twenty buildings like the Chicago Auditorium could be placed on its floor, and the iron and steel in its roof would build two Brooklyn bridges. The lumber in it represents 1,000 acres of pine. The dedication ceremonies will be held here, when 75,000 people can be seated in the buildipg. i But the buildings are not only large but of great beauty. Of the twenty two millions of dollars which the fair will cost, eight millions go into the buildings alone. The architects have taken advantage of this outlay, and the results are marvellously beau tiful. Tho buildings look like marble, being covered with a remarkable com position of plaster, cement and fibre called "staff." The columns, statues, emblematic figures, designs of every imaginable shape and size, are lav ished so profusely on the structures that one in bewilderment fancies him self to be in a garden of the gods, sur rounded by gigantic Greek temples. Among the state buildings Minne sota has an excellent location. By far the most pretentions among these is naturally that of Illinois, costing a quarter of a million. New York and Pennsylvania occupy prominent posi tions facing the Art Hall. Tho Wom en's building ia admirable in design and location, and the Electrical build ing speaks volumes for the develop ment of science. The exposition re quires 17,000 horse-power of electric lighting which is ten times tho amount at the Paris exposition of 1889. All tho buildings, except that of the Jap anese government which is to be pre sented to Chicago, are to be removed within six months after the close of tlib fair. The 5,000,000 souvenir half-dollars Established Facts: ROYAL BAKING POWDER and purest baking powder, and the greatest in leavening strength. That it is free from every injurious substance. That it makes lighter, sweeter, more nutritious and healthful food than any other. The Royal Baking Powder Company refines its own cream of tartar in its own mammoth re finery, and thus insures its unvarying quality. There is used in the'manufacture of the Royal Baking Powder more than half of all the cream of tartar consumed in the United States for all purposes. This is required and must be chemically pure, and chemically pure cream of tartar could not be obtained in the markets of this coun try or Europe, which necessitated the building of special works, and the employment of special processes. All other baking powders, when analyzed, show traces of lime and sulphuric acid, which arise from the impurities of the materials bought in the market, which their manufacturers use. This is why the Royal Baking Powder is the only absolutely pure baking powder made. H. M. HEBB1CK. A few notes concerning the World's Fair, gathered by recent personal in spection and from the official guides, may interest some readers. The grounds are about seven miles south of the city hall and include Jackson Park, 553 acres, and a strip of 80 acres connecting Jackson with Washington Park-total area 633 acres of which 200 will be covered with buildings. The water-ways on the grounds include 61 acres, connected with Lake Michigan on the east. Every principal building on the grounds can be reached by water, and the lagoons, basins and canals will be covered with boats driven by steam and electricity. This is one of the best features of the fair, and on the whole there is no better location in the world for the great exposition. is the oldest are to be sold by the directors at $1 each.

That this maxim is as true today as it was when uttered 2,000 years ago we see proofs on every hand. The most remarkable ex ample that has come to my notice for some time is that of Mr. Higford Burr, a rich bachelor who lives in the midst of a fine park near Reading, in England. Mr. Burr's hobby is snakes. He hatches them out on his grounds, and as he will permit none to be killed, and particularly dotes on large and vicious reptiles, his park is not a particularly attractive place to his neighbors. Mr. Burr keeps a frog pond, and it is his greatest delight to watch the snakes hunt ing for frogs. Colonel Ewell, of Texas, chanced to meet Mr. Burr two years ago and they at once became friends, and the American was in vited to Aldermaston Hall, as the snake lover's home is called. After dinner the colonel was taken out to see the pond and the snakes, and his opinion of the collection was asked. "Wa-al," drawled the American, "I'll allow you have a right smart lot of snakes, sich as they are, but if you'll come over to see me on the Sabine and put up for a week or two I'll show you snakes till you can't rest, and they'll be snakes as are snakes." "Bless me!" exclaimed the Englishman. "What do you call those extraordinary reptiles?" "Oh, different names. There's some dandy fellows we call copperheads then thar's moccasins, puff adders, pizen hoop snakes and sich, but I reckon the boss snake over on the Sabine is the rattler, more particular when they git to be ten feet long and 'bout as thick as your thigh." "Why, you excite my curiosity," said the Englishman, "and if on your return to Texas you could send me a consignment of the snakes you mention I should gladly pay you whatever the expense may be. But let me ask, do you think your Texas snakes would get along friendly with their English cousins?" "Wa-al, that'll depend on how their Eng lish cousins treat 'em. Our Texas snakes are high toned and rather like a fight, but they never go out hunting a fuss, that J'll say for 'em," replied the colonel, who, though not fond of snakes, felt that state pride compelled him to stand up for the Texas reptile. Six months after that three frightened men left a number of crates marked "Texas snakes" at Mr. Burr's mansion. A letter had preceded the consignment, and in it Colonel Ewell enjoined on the Englishman to "treat the snakes kindly till they got naturalized," and as he loved his life not to take them to his bosom "nor fool with their business ends." The delighted naturalist took the crates down to the frog pond and let the hissing, squirming creatures free. The snakes were famished, and Mr. Burr rubbed hie hands as he pictured them feasting on frogs, but he was doomed to disappoint ment. Instead of attacking the frogs the Amer ican snakes started for their "English cousins," incidentally swooping in a frog on the raid. Threo days after this Mr. Burr's man entered the library in great alarm and re ported that the American snakes had killed and eaten everything in the pond, includ ing the ducks and young swans, and that some of the larger ones had started after the lambs in the park. "We must keep the American reptiles in a separate inclosure till they get accli mated," said Mr. Burr. At 6nce every man on the place and every man who could be bribed by double pay to do the work started out with nets and pitchforks to corral the Texas snakes, but the snakes were not of the same way of thinking. They invaded the neighbor ing farms and one entered the city of Reading and frightened the people out of their wits. The magistrates had Mr. Burr arrested for encouraging a dangerous nuisance and all the country was up in arms. I am aware that this reads as if it were fiction, but it is true in every detail, and it was not till a year passed and the climate of the country killed the snakes that the people near Reading breathed easier or dared to venture out at night. Mr. Burr still cultivates snakes, I learn, but they are of the harmless English variety. For pear trees that bear poor fruit, try a liberal dressing of wood ashes applied to the ground as far out as the branches reach over, and wash th.e trunks of the trees with strQRg soapsuds. y 1871.
