B. & M. railroad as line charges and prepaid
forwarded for 1893, or the receipts of t':. of
fice, was $8,016.88, an increase of $2,000 over
1892. One hundred and two cars of stock
were shipped, 164 cars of grain and one of
miscellaneous freight. Forty-four cur., of
lumber, eight of coal and twftity of sto-ic and
miscellaneous freight came in for the year
5893, which is by all acknowledged as rather
an off year for Nebraska.—Stamford Enter

The B. & M. folks have discovered late1
that people along the St. Francis and Puebw
line are running short of kindling wood, and
so the railroad is driving another set of pegs
along the unfinished line of road. “Stick,
stuck” now rings out on the prairie as a sig
nal to come and get a supply of kindlings.
Don’t roast the B. & M. as long as the pegs
hold out.—Beaver City Tribune.
Last Friday’s east bound train ran an hour
ahead of schedule time. It is understood
that the occasion for this unprecedented burst
of speed was owing to the fact that the B. &
M. tax payer was aboard and that for some
reason he wished to reach Oberlin in double
quick time. The B. & M. folks and the offi
cials of the northwest Kansas counties are
having some dispute regarding the payment
of taxes. It is said that trains on this branch
leave all cars, except the baggage car, at the
last station in Nebraska, crossing the Kansas
line with nothing that is subject to attach
ment. The B. & M. has always been prompt
in payment of taxes in this county, and while
we do not know the cause of the present diffi
culty, we presume that it is due a Kansas
freak, for which the state is becoming so not
ed.—Beaver City Tribune.
THE HIGHEST AWARD.
Royal Baking Powder has all the
Honors-In Strength and Value
20 Per Cent. Above its Nearest
The Royal Baking Powder has the e n
viable record of having received the highest
award for articles of its class—g r e a t e s t
strength, purest ingredients, most perfectly
combined—wherever exhibited in competition
with others. In the exhibitions of former
years, at the Centennial, at Paris, Vienna and
at the various State and Industrial fairs where
it has been exhibited, judges have invariably
awarded the Royal Baking Powder the high
I est honors.
j At the recent World's fair the examinations
! for the baking powder awards, were made by
the experts of the chemical division of the
Agricultural Department at Washington,
The official report of the tests of the baking
powders which were made by this department
for the specific purpose of ascertaining which
was the best, and which has been made pub
lic, shows the leavening strength of the Royal
to be 160 cubic inches of carbonic gas per
ounce of powder. Of the cream of tartar bak
ing powders exhibited at the fair, the next
highest in strength thus tested contained but
133 cubic inches of leavening gas. The other
powders gave an average of III. The Royal,
therefore, was found of 30 per cent, greater
leavening strength than its nearest competitor,
and 44 per cent, above the average of all the
other tests. Its superiority in other respects,
however, in the quality of the food it makes
as to fineness, delicacy and wholesomeness,
could not be measured by figuies.
It is these high qualities, known and appre
ciated by the women of the country for so
many years, that have caused the sales of the
Royal Baking Powder, as shown by statistics,
to exceed the sales of all other baking powders
