long ago, in a country town where
there are two groceries in the same
street, a very green tow-beaded, timid

in a faltering, half-frightened voice:
"Do you keep sweet p'tetters?"
"Nor said tbe storekeeper; "we
don't keep 'em. We sell 'em just as

Then he winked at the company
around the stove who snickered appre
ciatively. The green young man said,
"Oh!" aud went up to the stove aud

The store-keeper went on waiting on

He warmed his hands a few minutes

I To relieve themselves of some responsibility, the Directors have invited

living at remote points, may be afforded the best possible opportunity to
obtain the Coins.

and the Grocer.
A grocer would not pay a farmer the price of a ten
pound turkey for one that weighed but seven pounds.
Why should a farmer pay a grocer the price of the
Royal Baking Powder for a baking powder with 27
per cent, less leavening strength?
The Royal Baking Powder is proven by actual tests
to be 27 per cent, stronger than any other brand on the
market. Better not buy the others, for they mostly
contain alum, lime and sulphuric acid ; but if they are
forced upon j'ou, see that you are charged a correspon
dingly lower price for them.

apparently stunned and senseless with
the buffeting they had received. Many
of tho birds fell senseless on the deck
