Some old '•pccimen.s of Royal Baking Pow
der that had been kept on the shelf of a gro
cery store fo? ten years were recently tested by
Prof. Sehadlerof New York for the purpose of
measuring the loss of strength they hail under
gone. It wis found that, although the pow
der had been exposed to atmospheric changes
during all this time —for it was not in air-tight
cans —it* loss of raising power i.r -trength was
less than one per cent., the powder being prac
tically as good as the (lav it was put up.
This is a most valuable qua! y i:i a bak
ing powder, one which few |. i ve-s. Most
powders if not used when first nri.de arc found
to be ineffective. If kept even a few weeks
they lose their leavening power, become lumpy
or caked, and valueless.
This superior keeping power in the "Royal"
arises from the extraordinary care iu its manu
facture, and the scientific principles employed
in its combination. The articles used in its
composition are thoroughly dried by heat be
fore being compounded, and are .so prepared
and coated as to prevent the action of the acid
upoti the alkali prematurely, or except under
the influence of heat or water necessarily used
in cooking or baking.
The Royal is now used extensively in Aus
tralia, Africa, and other latitudes, where it h::s
been found to he the only baking powder that
will withstand the hot, moist atmosphere with- j
out deterioration.

against 23,191,870. The tendency ot

; grows older. The total number of iu
( I h abitantsin the cities has about quad
rupled since 18."»0—11,.'118,047, against
, 8,297,580.
The total male population of voting

12,830,349, made up of 5,270,518 na

ricans, Chinese, Japanese, Indians are
j iueludcd.
The statistics of the aires of the pop
ulation are very interesting, and will
probably surprise most readers. They
l are not aware, we imagine, that the
f largest number of inhabitants of the
United States of a single age were
. those most important members of the
family who had not yet completed their
t first year. Of these there were 1,447,-
983, while of men who had just reach
ed 21 the total was only 998,904. The
The following table gives the totals at
r ages separated by five years:

It will be seen that while the num
bers above decrease pretty steadily as
age advances by steps of ten years,
J there were more men and women of
•10 years than 35, and of 50 than of 45, 1
and the number of those who had
reached "00 was over 03,000 more than
the number who were 55.
The total number of people pursu
ing gainful occupations was 17,392,-
i 099, being 34.08 per cent, of the en
] tire population, and 47.31 per cent, of
; the population of 10 years of age and
. upward. Of these 14,7 14,042 were
males and 2,047,157 were females, en
gaged according to general classifies*

The total population of 10 years and
over having been 30,701,007, there
were, therefore, 19,309,508 of these
' not engaged in gainful occupations,
3,991,038 being males and 15,378,470
females. Of those 2,550,927 are males
and 2,980,200 females between the
; ages of 10 and 15, the total of which
substantially equals the number of
children attending school, who
do not, through any considerable
portion of the year, pursue any gainful
occupation. Invalid children, vagrants,
and inmates of charitable and correc
tional institutions must also be cipher
ed out. Of males between 10 and 59
only 921,333 are unaccounted for.
Those are students, the infirm in body
and mind, and the criminals and pau
pers. "The number of men of this
period of life, not disabled, who are
not returned as of some occupation by
reason of inherited weal.h or having
retired from business, is I ardly im
portant enough in this count-y," says
the report, "to be mentioned."
It will be seen, therefore, that a very
small proportion only of the population
" can be set down among the class who
are idle, though able to work.

—The young man who was sent to
Philadelphia from the Sandwich Is
land#, infected with leprosy, to see
what the best medical treatment ob
tainable in the Fuitcd States might
do toward curing this mysterious and
dreaded disease, probably had more
hope of a favorable result than the
physicians who advised the experiment,
for they knew that medical science had
no better knowledge to-day of the
1 cause and cure of the leper's ailments
than was possessed by men in Bibli
cal days. Still it was an experiment
of great interest and importance to
the population of ICalakaua's little
' kingdom, where leprosy has long made
' frightful ravages. It is a potentious
' evil there, and is made the subject of
' stringent legislation anil constant po
j ljee supervision. Leprosy is one of
I her most potent causes of the decay of
the native population, which is rapidly
1 dying out, and, as shown by the case
: of the Philadelphia patient, whose pa
rents emigrated from New Hampshire,
the disease attacks the children of for
eign residents as w< 11 as those of na
' tives
Had the consultation of the able
physicians who assembled to discuss
this case resulted in the discovery of
any useful method of treat nent, it
would have been hailed in the Sand
i wicli Islands as a great piece of good
5 fortune.
i .—Ranavalo-Manjaka, Oueen of Mad
-5 has concluded with the United
1 , States a commercial treaty which may
' lead to important results. The French
' have already lited out an expedition to
• the island; their gunboats lie in the
1 ; harbors ready for action, and a bom-
I bardment may tit any time begin.
" I That the OU"CII should select this
J moment to conclude a treaty with the
| nation which has already obtained the
i greater share of her foreign trade will
1 j be regarded by France as an attempt
' to gain an ally in the war which is
I- j threatened. Nor is England likely to
- I be better pleased that while she and
' ! Franco have been quarrelling about
j Madagascar a third Power has run
' away with the fruits of the contention.
t I Fut the island is wonderfully fertile,
4 I and for the sake of il commerce a little
I international acrimony may well be cn-
'' durod.
-i j —Six day walkers, ball players,
1 quail eaters, and other famous public
r performers may sometimes appear to
I be rapidly amassing fame and fortune,
I but favorite jockeys, at least, in Fu
i) gland, easily surpass them. The wealth
a of Fred A roher, at present the first of
Knglish jockeys, is estimated by some
j commentators at half a million dollars, j

His marriage caused a commotion in
the society world, and he condescend
ingly distributed bread and beer on
that occasion to his townsman, as if
his nuptials had been those of a prince.
Now. on his honeymoon tour in Eu
rope, lie receives attention such as
might not fall the lot of a great jurist
or divine. The youngster in Punch
who, on being asked whether he
would prefer the Church or the bar for
his profession, thought he would choose
the circus, was perhaps a long-headed
little fellow, after all.
—The passage by the House of the
bill designed to check the introduction
of adulterated and exhausted teas was
probably followed by its passage in
the Senate and its approval by the Pres
ident. This may be good news to
gome who take pleasure in the stimu
lent. It would seem, however, that
in Connecticut, at least, tea is some
times intoxicating. "I have seen
women us drunk on tea," writes one of
their sex to the Woodbury Reporter,
"as any man I ever saw on cider—so
drunk that they have accused their
husbands of being tipsy, when they
have been teetotalers for three
months." Of course the poet Cow
per's tribute to "the bubbling and loud
hissing urn" that "throws up a steamy
column, and the cups that cheer but
not inebriate, "would lose its savor to
this Connecticut writer. She beseeches
her sisters not to "taste, touch, or
handle the heathen poisonand to
placate them she consents to cull tea
tipsiness only nervousness. They
would be "just as well off," she says,
"with a little corn eoll'eo or red pepper
tea," or milk or water. Meanwhile,
those who still cling to a preference for
tea, as a potation, over wooden nut
megs steeped in water, will be ghul to
see the steps taken by Congress to
prevent the country from being filled
with doctored trash, imitating whole
some tea.

In a Solid Gold Watch, aside from
the necessary thickness for engraving ami
polishing, a large proportion of metal in
needed only to stiflcn and hold the engrav
ed portions in plaee, and supply strength.
The surplus gold is actually needless. In
James Host' Patent Gold liofcA Onses thin
waste is saved, and holidity and
STRENGTH increased l>y a simple process,
at one-half the cost. A plate of t-'OUD
oor.D is soldered on each side of a plate
of hard nickel composition metal, and the
three are then passed between polished
sU-el rollers. From this the ruses, hacks,
centers, bezels, etc., arc cut and shaped by
dies and formers. The gold is thick
enough to admit of all kinds of chasing,
engraving and engine turning. These
cases have been worn perfectly smooth by
use without removing the gold. This is
the only cane made under this process. Each
CUM- is accompanied with a valid guarantee
signed h\j the manvfaeturers warranting it to
