to TIIK IJr.B.j There was no llstlossness In
the Sloux-Clty-Omahn game today , ns there
vim yesterday. Both teams were full of
ginger nnd played with nn energy that would
have made n highly exciting game but for
DadClarke's weakness in thu box. The
champidns experienced embarrassment In
front of Burdlck , who pitched nn elfectlvo
game until the eighth Inning , when ho cased
up. Hut the Corn Huskers pounded Pad
Clarke almost from the start , nnd liut for the
unusual cniciency of the outlleld the score
would have been much moro dis
astrous to the visitors. In the sixth
Inning the veteran was knocked
out of the box" . Willis took his place and
thereafter the Com Hunkers achieved only
ono base hit. IJut their lead was too great to
bo overcome , especially as the champions
were fulling to hit the ball nt critical mo-
inratfl. In the sixth inning Cannvnn led oft
with a base hit. Walsh followed with nn-
other b.iso hit , advancing Catmvnn to third ,
and he scored on ICoarns' sacrifice. In the
eight Inning Walsh hit for a base , and
Kunnis advanced him to third by
n clean hit. WuLsh scored on Hluc-s'
bit , nnd Kcarns got to third.
After Collins-flow out Keirna Beorcd on n
passed bail , am ) Hincs advanced to third.
Urquhart lined out a base hit , scoring Hlucs ,

g of tlio Slvtli International
Convention at PlttHbnrg.
PiTTsnujto , Pa. , Juno 34. The sixth inter
national Sunday school convention was called
to order this morning by William Reynolds
of Pcoria , 111. The session opened with de
votional exercises and was followed by rou
tine business. There are l TOO delegates pres

gelical protestant denomination in North
America is represented. The objects of the
convention are the promotion and increase of
Sunday .school work , the devising of now and
better methods of teaching children and uni
formity of lessons.
At the afternoon session President Rey

Hold from which the great West draws Its

woik is being done. Mr. Reynolds
has just returned from a four
months' tour over the west and

WHV SO3II3 BOOKS FAIIj.
Chiefly IJounusc They Contain Noth
ing Worth Ilcmliii .
The reason why f-o many books full is
bocauio the poopio who wrote thorn have
nothing original to say , or what tlioy
any It. s'lid badly , buys a writer in Mur
ray's Magazine. Another reason is tluit
few of those who can write know any
thing1. They have no invention. They
do not see with their own eyes , but with
other people's oyos. They write books
about other people's books and have
little of their own to toll us. Clmmfort
gives another idea of authorship :
"What makes the success of numerous
works,1' ho says , "is the alllnity between
the mediocrity of the ideas of the author
and the mediocrity of the ideas of the
When an author has composed a work
ho ncccsbtxrily takes an interest in it.
Every writer of books , says Shelley ,
likes to breech his bantlings. Ho may
have spent many years upon it nnd prob
ably forms an excessive estimate of its
value. Ho is under the impression that
most readers of books will desire to pos
sess it. Lackington , the bookseller , tells
the story of a gentleman who , not being
able to llnd a , purehi'&or for his manu
script , resolved to publish it at his
own expense. The publisher desired
to know how many copies should b
printed. The gentleman began to
compute how many families there
were in Great Britain , and assured the
publisher that every family would at
least purchase ono copy. IIo was of his
opinion that at the lo'west ( iO.OOO copies
only might bo printed of the llrst edi
tion. The publisher prevailed upon him ,
much to his disgust , to print 1,250 in
stead of (50,000 , The result was that only
100 copies wore sold , not oven enough to
pay for the ndvortihomonts , and the
author departed railing at the stupidity
of publisher , bookseller and public.
Bookwrlting is quite as much a specu
lation on the one hand as bookselling is
on the other. Only a small number of
the books published pay their expenses ,
and very Jew of them reach a second edi
tion. "Every year , " says Do Quincy ,
'buries its own literature. " When an
author writes for money , ho goes to the
publisher and endeavors to sell him tlio
mnuuBcrlpt for as much as ho can get.
IIo may gQt too little , or ho
may got too much. The pub
lisher takes the risk , nnd incurs
the expense of printing , binding and ad
vertising. If the book hells and thu
author thtnkd ho has got too little , ho
proclaims that ho has boon outwitted
and defrauded. But if the book does
not sell , it never enters the author's
head to refund the copy money or re
turn the amount of loa to the pub
lisher. Both have run the risks of the
speculation , and both mllat bo content to
abide the Issue.
' The ilrltlsli Census.
The British Census will bo taken In
1801. The cost of the census of Great
Britain in 18S1 was 172,000 for a popu
lation of 20,000,000. For England and
Wales the cost jier 1,000 of the popula
tion was 4 15s Od In 1801 , rising to 5
5s 7d In 1871 | and 0 12s Od in 1881. The
number of enumerators was nearly U5- ,
000 , and in 1801 the number will not bo
far short of 40,000. ,

IIo demanded the previous question on the
adoption of the resolution , which was ordered ,
and twenty minutes' debate was allowed on

Mr. McKinley sniu the purpose of the reso
lution was to secure , definite and speedy ac
tion upon the subject of silver. It was results
the republican side was after , said Mr. Me-
Kinloy , and politics the democratic side was
after. The house had passed the period of
silver manipulation. It was face to face with
n practical question whether wo wore to
have free nnd unlimited coinage of the world's
silver product , or whether wo would legislate
to aljsoib every ounce of silver produced In
the United States and nmko it part of our
monetary system. On motion of Mr.McKin-
loy the bpccinl rate was adopted without divi
Mr. Conger , chairman of the coinage com
mittee , presented the ronort of the commit

amendments to the silver bill and request a
Mr. Hlandof Missouri moved that the house
concur in the senate amendments.
With those motions pending the debate
Mr. Conger defended the action of his com
mittee. saying It had reported n wise and con
servative , measure. If the bullion redemp
tion feature was stricken out then the gov
ernment was placed in the position of buying
gold nnd silver bullion and paying for It in
silver coin , for that was the only money pro
vided for the purpose now. Free coinage
meant a profit of $1:1,000,000 : a year to the
bullion owners of this country. It meant
that wo should say to the world ! "Bring us
your silver and wo will give you ! ! 0 per rent
more for It than you can got nnywhuro clso. "
Mr. Conger held that under the terms of the
house bill silver and gold would bo equally
Within the reach of nil , whilo.if the senate
bill was passed the country would bo driven

terms of the house bill sllvor wonld appre

Chairman Midgcloy Is enthusiastically

No oilier Baking Powder is "just as good as the 'Royal' " either in strength ,
purity or wholesomeness. The "Royal" is superior to all others in all ways.
Most housekeepers know this from their practical experience , and the reports
of the U. S. Government investigations show it officially. The Government
chemist says the "Royal" is "undoubtedly the purest and most reliable baking
powder offered to the public. "
If some grocers try to sell another baking powder in place of the " Royal"
they do so because they can make a greater profit upon the other ; good evi
dence of the superiority of the "Royal. " To give greater profit the other must
be a lower-cost powder , and to cost less it must be made with alum or cheaper
and inferior materials.
Because the "Royal" uses more highly refined and expensive materials it
costs more to manufacture than any other baking powder , but it is correspond
ingly purer and higher in leavening strength , and accordingly of greater money
value to consumers , although the retail' price to them is generally the same.
Consumers are entitled to full value for their money , and therefore will not , ifv
wise , accept any substitute for the " Royal. "
Unfortunately , not only are many of these would-be substitute powders made
from inferior and unwholesome materials , but they are placed before the public
with advertisements intended to mislead as to their true character. A powder
advertised by its manufacturers to have printed upon its label all the ingredients
used in it , proves upon analysis to have in its composition four substances no
named upon its label , two of which are lime and sulphuric acid. Most of the s.
alum powders are fraudulently sold as pure cream of tartar goods.
The danger incurred , should such powders be substituted for the "Royal , "
will be apparent to every consumer.
