official food analyses by the

nients have been studied with interest,

Pives the names of eighteen well-known
aUing powders, some of them adver
tised as pure cream-of-tartar powders,

1 he report shows the Royal to be a
Rtipc ^ cream-of-tartar baking pbwder,
the highest in strength, evolving 160.6
cubic inches of leavening gas per single
ounce of powder. There were eight
other brands of cream-of-tartar pow
ders tested, and their average strength
was 111.5 cubic inches of gas per ounce
1 he Canadian government investiga
tions were of a still larger number of
powders. The Royal Raking Powder
was here also shown the purest and
highest in strength, containing forty
live per cent more leavening gas per
ounce than the average of all the other
These figures are very instructive to
the practical housekeeper. They indi
cate that the Royal Raking Powder
goes more than 33 per cent further in
use than the others, or is one-third
more economical. Still more important
than this, however, they prove this pop
ular article has been brought to the
highest degree of purity—for to its su
perlative purity this superiority in
strength is due—and consequently that
by its use we may be insured the purest
and most wholesome food.
The powders of lower strength are
found to leave large amounts of impur
ities in the food. This fact is empha
sized by the report of the Ohio State
h ood Commissioner, who while finding
the Royal practically pure, found no
other powder to contain less than 10
per cent of inert or foreign matter.
The statistics show that there is used
in thg manufacture of the Royal
Raking Powder more than half of
all the cream-of-tartar consumed in
the United States for all purposes. The
wonderful sale thus indicated for the
Royal Raking Powder—greater than
that of all other baking powders com
bined—is perhaps even a higher evi
dence than that already quoted of the
superiority of this article, and of its in
dispensableness to modern cookery.
The Earth Has Begun Wabbling.
Observations are to be made simulta
neously at Washington and at Manilla,
in the Philippine islands, which is
almost directly opposite Washington on
the other side of the globe, to see what
is the matter with the axis of our
planet. Observations show that for
some time the earth has not been re
volving on that important if imaginary
support, as she has done for centuries,
and scientists have decided that it is
about time to find, if possible, what it
all means. Those who have studdied
the subject declare that if the varia
tions continue in the course of some
very long and very indefinite period we
shall have an artic climate at Washing
ton. and the latitude of every place on
the globe will be changed, and our
geographies will be useless. An equa
torial telescope has been finished and

made into the whys and whyfores of

THE RUSSIAN THISTLE.
Spread of the Plant and How to Eradi
The Division of Botany in the U. S.
Department of Agriculture is in receipt
of authentic advices on the appearance
of the Russian thistle in various new
localities. Bulletin No. 15 of this Divi
sion contains colored maps showing the
territory in which it has been found to
the close of 1893. It has since been re
ported from the following places:
Hammond, Lake county, Ind.: Can
non Falls, (ioodhue county, Minn.: Mar
shall. Lyon county, Minn.; Northwest
ern, Jefferson county, Neb.; Blue Hill,
Webster county. Neb.; Stockville, Fron
tier county, Neb.: Parks. Dundy coun
ty, Neb.; La Salle, Weld county, Colo.;
Nampa, Ada county, Idaho, and Mani
In almost all these localities it has
appeared only along the line of rail
roads and, with the exception of Nam
pa, Idaho, is now officially reported for
cue uisc ume.
The occurrence of the Russian thistle
in Idaho is regarded by the Botanist of
the department as a very serious mat
ter, and he urges its immediate and
complete eradication from that state.
The region already infested by the
Russian thistle lies in the plains east of
the Rocky mountains and is, therefore,
separated by this great natural barrier
from the wheat raising areas of Idaho,
Washington and Oregon, Nevada and
Utah. The only way In which it can
enter this area is by introduction in im
pure seed and by transportation
through the passes of the Rocky moun
tains. especially along railroads. Every
endeavor should be used by the farm
ers and civil authorities of this region
to exterminate it along the railroads,
and to use only the cleanest and best
seed wheat obtaiuale. If the Russian
thistle once infests this region its next
step will be to cross the Sierra Nevada
into the wheat areas of central Califor
nia. The importance, therefore, of
precautionary measures along the great
mountain chains is clearly apparent.
From about the loth of August to the
1st of September the Russian thistle
begins to produce its seed, and, being
an annual, the effectual method of
checking its progress is to kill the plant
by cutting, plowing and harrowing
during or before this time. In the case
of wheat fields which are already in
fested the grain should be harvested as
early as possible, the stubble left long,
the whole field mowed close to the
ground, and after a few days drying
burned over. Fields thickly infested
inav require in addition plowing and
thorough harrowing. A copy of Bulle
tin No. 15 will be forwarded to any ap
plicant, and a specimen of any plant
supposed to be the Russian thistle will
be positively identified upon receipt by
the Department of Agriculture.

BY HORATIO ALGER, .IK.
“Do you go back to the store in
the evening?” asked the young lady,
as he rose from the table.
"Yes, I think so. I am expected !
to keep open in the evening.”
‘■But you have an assistant?”
“Then I advise you not to make |
yourself a slave to business. We j
shall hope for the pleasure of your
company occasionally in the eve
James Cromwell felt flattered, and
looking full in the young lady’s face,
he thought to himself, “.She is very
pretty, and she seems to show me a
great deal of politeness.”
“Thank you. Miss Manton. for your
kind invitation. I will accept it very
soon—as soon as I think I can be
spared from my business.”
••You will be quite welcome,” said
“Where ignorance is bliss 'tis folly
to be wise.” So runs an old proverb.
This was illustrated in the case of
James Cromwell, who ignorant of
the real opinion entertained of him
by Miss Manton. began, after a while,
to conceive the delusive thought j
that she had taken a fancy to him.
but we are anticipating. Three even
ings later, when supper was con
cluded. James Cromwell made no
movement to go back to the store.
This was quickly observed by Clara,
who said, with a smile:
“You are going to remain with us
this evening are you not, Mr. Crom
“If it will be agreeable,” he said.
“Can you doubt it?” she said, with
a look which quickened the pulsa
tions of Cromwell’s heart “I get
so tired passing the evening aione.
Papa gets hold of a paper or maga
zine, and I am left to my own de
vices for amusement.”
She invited Cromwell to their pri
vate parlor, which was furnished
with a piano.
“Do you like music, Mr. Crom
well?” she inquired.
“Very much indeed,” he answered,
though the truth was he scarcely j
knew one tune from another.
“Perhaps you are a musician?”
“Not at all,” he said hastily, and I
in this statement, at least, he was j
correct. "Won’t you play some- J
thing. Miss Manton?”
“I haven’t anything new. but if
you don’t mind old pieces, I will
play for you.”
She played a noisy instrumental
piece, to which James Cromwell lis
tened in silence, with very little idea
o: what was being played. His eyes
were fixed rather on the young lady
“How do vou like it. Mr. Crom
“Very much, indeed.” said Crom
well, hitching his chair a little
nearer the instrument, and then col- |
oring. lest the movement should have I
‘•I think I will sing you some- ;
thing,” said Clara. “I don’t sing in !
public, but before an intimate friend
I do not feel so bashful.”
The words, “intimate friend,”
slipped out so easily and naturally
that she seemed unconscious of them. ■
but they were intentional and she i
glanced ont of the corners of her j
eyes to watch their effect. She saw
that Cromwell’s eyes brightened,
and the color came to his pale cheeks,
and then she knew that they had
produced the effect that she had in
••She is certainly very charming.” I
thought Cromwell, “and she is very
triendly. I don’t think I ever met
a young lady so attractive.”
••He’s getting in love,” said Clara
to herself. “It’!l be fun to see him '
when he gets carried away by the
tender passion. I’ve heard of elo
quent eyes, but I don’t think his are
capable of looking like anything ex
cept those of a ferret. Well, I’ll see
the play through.”
She accordingly sang the well
known song. “Then I’ll Remember
Thee,” putting into it as much mean
ing as possible, and occasionally
glancing in a languishing manner at
the young man who sat uneasily in
his chair, and began to feel the
symptoms of love. He sat as if spell
bound when she had finished.
••Why don’t you compliment me.
Mr. Cromwell?” she asked, turning
with a smile. “Do you know you
are wanting in your duty, sir? Every
young lady expects to be compli
mented, when she has done a young
gentleman the favor to sing to him.”
“It was because I was so charmed,”
said James Cromwell, with more
readiness than might have been ex
pected. “I was so charmed that I
was incapable of saying a word.”
••I am afraid you are 'ike the rest
of your sex. a sad llatterer, Mr.
Cromwell.” said the young lady,shak
ing her head, with a smile “You
don't expect me to believe that.now,
•‘Yes, I do, Miss Man ton. for it is
perfectly true," said James Crom
well, plucking up courage; “you slug
like a nightingale."
So the evenin '- was passed. The
young lady paid assidious attention
to her visitor, and when they parted
bet task was accomplished. James
Cromwell was in love.
A Declaration and How It Was
Robert Raymond did not propose
to rebel against his guardian’s ar
rangements, however disagreeable
they were to himself. He hal writ
ten a letter to Paul Morton, and he
hoped that his remonstrance would
have some effect. But meanwhile
lie had determined to accept his
fate, and act in accordance with the
instructions which had been given
There was a private school in
Madison, kept by a eollego graduate,
and to this school Robert was sent
by James Cromwell. He found him
self the most advanced pupil in the
classics, and he soon found that his
teacher’s acquirements were far
from extensive or thorough. Still he
could learn by his own efforts,
though not of course, as well as at
hts former school, and he resolved
to make the best of it,
Meanwhile the flirtation between
James Cromwell and Clara Manton
continued. The young lady was al
ways gracious, and to far as her
manner went, might readily be sup
posed to have formed a decided in
clination for her admirer, for such
the druggist had now become. She
had a certain dash and liveliness of
manner which fascinated him, and
he felt flattered in no slight degree
that such a young lady should have
singled him out as her favorite.
Cne evening there was to be a
concert in the village.
James Cromwell brought home
tickets, and said diffidently, “Miss
Manton, will you do me the favor to
accompany me to the concert this
“Thank you. Mr. Cromwell,” she
answered, smiling graciously, “I
will accept with pleasure. I was
wishing to go, but papa does not
feel very well to-day, so I had made
up my mind that I must pass my
time at home. At what hour does
the concert commence?”
“At half-past seven.”
“Will it be time if I am ready at a
“Then you may depend on me.”
Strange as it may appear, it was
the first time in his life that James
Cromwell ever acted as escort to a
lady in visiting a place of public en
tertainment. and lie felt a degree of
awkwardness because of that. But
when Clara Menton appeared she
was so gracious and sociable that all
his mauvaise haute disappeared, and
he walked arm in arm with her.
feeling easier and more unembar
rassed than he had supposed to be
possible. When they entered the
hall he glanced around him with
pride at the thought it would be pre
ceived that he was the chosen caval
ier of such an attractive young lade.
Of the concert it is unnecessary to
speak. It closed at a comparatively
early hour, and the two wended their
“Shall we prolong our walk a lit
tle?” he said. “It is still early, and
it is very pleasant.”
“Yes: that will be pleasant,” she
returned. “Papa is probably asleep
by this time, and won’t miss me.
What a charming concert we had.”
“None of them sang as well as you,
Miss Manton,” said Cromwell.
“(), now you are flattering me, Mr.
Cromwell. I cannot permit that, you
know,” she said playfully.
“So,” he said earnestly, “I am
not flattering you, Miss Clara. You
are so—so—I hope you'll excuse me,

he may give his consent at once, or
perhaps it may take considerable
time to persuade him. I cannot toll.
But whatever he decides, I cannot

When Clara returned home her
father happened to bo still up. He
had become interested in something
that he was reading, and this caused
him to defer his hour of retiring.
■•Well, papa,” said Clara, “J’vo

suspense is intolerable, and he
wanted to have his fate decided at

presence of Clara’s father, whom he
found a.one. The young lady, con

gone out for a walk. Mr. Manton
was sitting indolently in a ro.'king

“You have a daughter,” proceeded
the young man, nervously.

Clara, in fact, used to quarrel pretty

terms equally endearing.

Spoiled His Eyes.
An Italian, who had a pair of
showy black eyes, and was excessive
ly vain of them, permitted himself,
in a peculiarly outrageous manner,
to insult a defenseless young Eng
lishwoman who had recently lost her
husband. An American painter
slapped his face, and received his
challenge. In the art of fence the
American was proficient: and. as
swords were chosen. I asked him,
writes Henry Harland in the Idler,
on the night before the meeting
what he was going to do to the little
beast. “Not kill him?” “Oh, no, I
shan’t kill him. I don’t want to soil
my hands with his dirty little life. I
think I'll just put out one of his
handsome black eyes.” The next
morning, in a wood near Yirotlay.the
men crossed their swords, made a
few feints and passes, and then, bi
fore they had been at it a full half
minute, the Italian gave a scream.
Surely enough, the American had
pinked him in the eye.

Some court entertainments recently
hare been magnificent. The court din

German emperor had peculiar features.
Though the guests numbered eighty,
the whole dinner was served on gold
plates anil dishes. The centerpieces
and vases likewise were of massive
gold, lleally two dinners were served,
because it was Friday. Reside each
plate lay two menus, a fish menu on
jimple white cardboard with the impe

with the usual gold ornaments and the
eagle in gold. As the guests sat down
every one was asked by the lackeys
wheather a fish or meal dinner would
be agreeable, and then one menu was
