Yat unaeruploui manufacturers do not
hesitate to use tliem, because ther
make a ry tow-cost powuer, nor to

by ail kinds of alluring advertisements
and false representations.
All tb low priced or so-called cheap

useful of modern culinary devices.
They not only make the preparation of
nnar ana more aeuaous cookery pos
sible, but the; have added to the di
gestibility and wholesomeness of our
food. But baking powders must be
composed of sucb pure and wholesome
Ingredients or they must be tabooed
Dr. Kdson, Commissioner of Health
f New York, in an article in the
"Doctor of Hygiene," indicates that
the advantages of a good baking pow
der and the exemption from the dan
gars of bad ones In which the harsh and
cans tic chemicals are used, are to be
secured by the use of ltoyal Baking
Powder exclusively, and he recom
mends this to-all consumers. "The
Royal," be says, "contains nothing but
oreain of tarter and soda refined to a
ahaaaieal nurltv. which whan combined'
under the Influence of beat and mois
ture produce pur carbonic, or leaven

preparation they are combined iu ex

in the dough tbey practically disap
pear, the substance of both having
bn taken to torm caroonic-acia gas.'
Hence it is, ho says, that the Hoyal'
Baking Powder is the most perfect of
' all conceivable - agent for leavening
It seems almost incredible that any
manufacturers or dealer should urge
the tal of baking powders containing
injurious chemicals in place of those of
a mll-trnnatn MM and wholeaom
character simply for the sake of a few
cents pound greater profits; but sine
they do, n few words of warning seem
to be necessary.

to flee. 1
One afternoon we reached the village
of Sandy Lake, then a quiet little set
tlement whore I felt my boy was safe.
I changed my name to Patterson. It
was my grandmother's name. I need
not excuse that act. Before my God I
I felt that I wasjustified in doing any

My life here is familiar to you and
the good people of this neighborhood.
I have sought to do good to my fellow
men and fellow-women, and trust that
when I am dead some one will have
cause to say that the world is a little
better for Mrs. Patterson having lived
In it.
Four years passed and I was begin
ning to make myself believe that my
hiding place would never be discovered
by the father of my boy. It was not to
he so.
On evening, just at dusk, - my dar
ling Louis came running into the
nous, all out of breath, and when he
ould sneak, he told me of meeting a
stranger who had asked several
uaflttons about his mother, and had
had him run home and say that Silas
Qroundwig, an acquaintance of years
ago, would call to see her at once,
the bov had finished his message, the
man came. I remembered too well
that name. It was my husband, the
father of mv bov. Mv heart ceased to
throb. At least I thought it did. When
the hot blood ought to have coursed
through my veins at lightning speed,
it failed to do its work, and I stood be
fore the man transfixed with horror,
but fortunately I did not lose my con
sciousness. " Well. Madame, this is rather a
mid recention to extend to your hus
band after the long ohase you have
given him
. His voice brought me to myelf. In
n moment I gathered strength, not the
ounv strentrtn oi a woman, dui me
strength of a giant. The blow he gave
aae years before on that bed of pain
seemed to be Inflicted again, and again
Is atnns' me to the heart. I looked
about me and saw we were alone. I was
M thankful my ooy bad returnea to nis

wanU I rued at that man. I saw he
was a wrck, and that kind of a wreck
which is ail danger. I looked him
Sriht in the eye. There was no
nn thre. His Hps were closed
thauffh livid with an ashen hue. I saw
the color come and go in his face, as if
hl nrain waa busy with the past.
With the utmost deliberation, and
with a boldness that chilled me
through, I replied:
"Sit down, sir."
"No, I prefer to stand."
"As you please," I answered.
Kiin Groundwiff."
At the mention of that name I started
a though he had struck me and my
boy another blow. I was subdued in
a second. I became meek and weak
as a little child. All my great cour
age had gone from me. I was help
less and powerless. I felt I was again
in that man's mercy. A dread of a ter-
ihln anmnthln? about to happen un
nerved mo, and I waited with breath
less anxiety the next step in tne arama.
Was it to end with a tragedy?

"Silas Groundwig," at last I found
strength and courage to say, "you

name. When a husband strikes his

And now, Silas Ground wig, what is
your wish?"
For more than a minute, which
seemed an hour, he stood before me
and answered not a word.
He was pale and white and still as a
dead man right from the grave. Fi
nally the painful stillness was broken
by Groundwig's exclaiming:
"Suean Groundwig, the business
which brought me here can be easily
arranged, and long before the clock
strikes 10 I can be on my way out of
your presence as my presence seems
so hateful to you never again to re
turn. It is for you to say not for me;
or before the clock shall strike again,
I can signal my comrades, who are
hard by, to seize your boy, aud take
him forever from jiir sight."
I was stunned for moment and it
took me several seconds to collect
sense and strength to say:
"Silas Grouadwig, what is it you
-'Madam, I want nothing but you can
mmnlv with. I am Door: I am an out

to desperate deeds to make the world

upon my Creator to help me in my ter
rible distress.
Next dav I wag watching from the
window for my little boy to return from
school. And when I saw him he had a
letter in his hand coming up the lane
waving it. Another moment and he
bounds into the room, and throwing a
sealed envelope into my lap, fairly shouts
to me to open it and read it quick, be

a dispatch asking him to deliver tne
letter to me 'at once and have me

Can there be any more weary tears in
these eyes? Mechanically l tear open
the envelope. The letter is from my

date. "Dear madam" are idle words.
A piece of paper drops to the floor. My
boy picks it up and holds it before me
while I read:

to his prey. The golden-rod, the wild
sun-flower, the broad expanse of prairie
blossoms fresh from their sun baths,
nod in the gentlest of gentle breeses,
and open their invisible mouth to
catch the dews of night. The beauti
ful daisy and the pretty morning glory

tree near the water's edge, and tells
all the world within bearing that be

so demurely out of their great Drown

miration of such grandeur. Yonder,
almost in the zenith, is jupiter shin
ing so brightly and looking so proud
because he is king of the heavens even
for a brief hour, and now the great,
round, red moon breaks the horizon
and climbs mysteriously up the clear
sky, the big bright stars, and the dim
little ones, all hide their heads, and
even jupiter himself fades away, and
the shadows come again and cover the
borders of the lake with phantoms of
various shapes, affording tne imagina

fancy any image the brain

Bigh mournfully through the trees, and
joining high up above the waters of
the lake, the winds that swept from
the distant prairie, seem like dismal
murmurlngs and harsh mutterings
coming from human voices above the
clouds; or it may be those strange,
wierd noises are voices of spirits from
the tombs of the mound-builders hold
ing converse with the spirit from the
irraves of the long-buried Indians.
These mysterious noises come from
the darkness, and go only with the
light of the morning.
The moon is now well on its journey
across the sky. The fields and river
and lake and farm houses areas plainly
visible as at noon-day. The symmetri
cal stacks of grain stand out boldly as
if saying "we are the staff of life for
man and beast." The hay has been
harvested and the long racks mean
that well-fed cattle shall reward the
husbandman for his labor.
The fields and meadows have been
shorn of their wealth of food, except
the broad acres of Indian corn whose
luxuriant growth makes the farmer
smile as be dreams of fat herds and n
fat purse. That snapping, crackling,

that breaks upon the stillness of the
night, is the growing corn. It is push

to let bis master known that he is an

from some prowling mongrel.
Save theBe lnfreqjt disturbers of
nature's stillness, and the ever present
commingling of those supernal voices
