The manufacturers of Royal Bak
ing Powder have always declined
to produce a cheap baking powder
at the sacrifice of quality.
Royal Baking Powder is made from
pure grape cream of tartar, and is
the embodiment of all the excellence !
possible to be attained in the high
est class baking powder.
Royal Baking Powder costs only a
fair price, and is more economical
at its price than any other leavening
agent, because of the superlative
quality and absolute wholesomeness
of the food it makes.
Mixtures made in imitation of baking powders, but containing alum,
are frequently distributed from door to door, or given away,-in grocery
stores. Such mixtures are dangerous to use in ioodr In England,
France, Germany and some sections of the United State? their sale is
prohibited by law. Alum is a dangerous mineral acid, and all
physicians condemn baking powders containing it.

New Orleans, La., April lit).?It will

The last week ended with prospects
of rain over the entire cotton belt. If

When the market opens prices will

point out that a late crop i. pecu

Probably there will ho less general
interest in the July position than there
has been since it became an active
month. This will be due to the
liquidation of outside holdings, it is
pretty well established that the hulls
have a secure hold on .Inly, and out
siders will avoid it because of their
foil's of manipulation. The average
professional trader will enter the
July position only in a scalp. Trading
in August will undoubtedly Increnso

that month and October.
The mainstay of the market for a.

I.Cintllg the Farms.
The movement from the country to
the towns is pointedly illustrated by
the census figures of Laurens county.
Between the censuses of 1000 and IDIU
the county gained I,ICS inhabitants.
Throe of nine townships, without large
tow ns, shows an aggregate loss of '>08,
Pour other rural townships show an
aggregate gain of ICD. Two townships
Containing the towns of Lauren- and
Clinton, show a gain of 1,207, account
ing fOI' the whole guilt Of the county
and the net loss of DD In Hie seven
more rural townships.
The gain of the town of Laurens is
7s!i and Clinton 1.10? or 2.102 for
the two towns. Immediately outside
of the Incorporate limits of both Clin
ton and Laurens large cotton mills
have been erect >d since 1000 ami

numbering around 2,000 added to the

Laurens county is in the heart of
the hill region of 'he State. While
it. is not to be questioned that the

prospering, it can not be said that
agriculture In thai county, as a whole,
is thriving. Disregarding the fact
that seven or eight villoges in the ru

Laurons und Clinton, have drawn pop
ulation from the farms, an agricul
