Royal Baking Powder,
Strongest, Purest, Most Economical.
Certain baking powder makers are publishing falsified extracts
from the Government reports, with pretended analyserand certificates,
wherein an attempt is made to compare their baking powders with the
"Royal," or making bogus tests from house to house, their obvious
purpose being to counteract the recent exposures of the inferiority of
their own goods arising from their impurity, low strength, and lack of
keeping qualities as shown by the Government chemists and others.
As to whether any of these baking powaers c
equal to the "Royal," the official tests clearly deter
mine. When samples of various baking powders
were purchased from the grocers, and analyzed by
the United States Government Chemists and the
Chemists of State and City Boards of Health, the
reports revealed the fact that the "Royal" contained
from 28 per cent, to 60 per cent, more leavening
strength than any other cream of tartar baking pow
der and also that it was more perfectly made, of
purer ingredients, and altogether wholesome.
As these powders are sold to consumers at the same price, by the
use of the Royal Baking Towder there is an average saving of ovtr
one third, besides the advantage of assured purity and wholesomeness of
food, and of bread, biscuit and cake made perfectly light, sweet, and pal
atableadvantages not to be had in the use of the low grade, cheaply
made baking powders that contain lime, alum, and other impurities.

ERE is what the manufacturer says in regard to Solid Silver Mot
at goods and Solid Nickel Silverware: "There has been a grow
ing demand for years for a grade of Spoons and Forks to take
the place of Solid silver ami plate ware. We have experimented
for some time to attain this end, and are now able to olTer the public our
Rogers' Metal and Rogers' Solid Nickel Silver. We guarantee this metal
superior to any Nickel Silver manufactured and have the greatest confi
dence in assuring our customers that this ware is inferior to service on
ly to solid silver. It is a beautiful white color, is highly polished nud
can hardly be distinguished from pure silver. We recomend (his ware
especially lor hotels, restaurants and boarding houses, as it will stand
more hard usage than any oilier metal; is very tough and hard; will hold
its color and will outwear any plateware ever manufactured.'' Ml our
customers know Rogers' ware by reputation. This firm have manufac
tured plated ware since lMla, and their name is never put on goods that

whose wife bad paralysis in the face
to buy a bottle of Chamberlain's
Pain Halm. To their great suprise
before the bottle had all been used
she was a great deal better. Her
face had been drawn to one side:
but the Pain Halm relieved all
pain and soreness, and the mouth
assumed its natural shape." It is
