THE HIGHEST AWARD. Royal Baking Powder In Strength and Value (JO Per Cent. Above Its Nearest Competitor, The Royal Baking Powder has the enviable record of having received the highest award for articles of its class- greatest strength, purest ingredients, most perfectly combined—wherever exhibited in competition with others. In tbe 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 Jtoyal Baking Powder the highest honors. At the recent World's Fair the examination for the baking powder awards were made by thp experts of the chemical division of the Agricultural Department of 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 public, shows the leavening strength of tho Itoyal to be 100 cubic inches of carbonic gas per ounce of powder. Of the cream of tartar baking powders exhibited at the Fair, the nest higbebt in strength thus tested, contained but 133 cubic inches pf leavening gas. The 6ther powders gave an average of IU. .The lioyal, therefore; was tou,nd of SO per cent, greater leavening 1 strength than its B^areat.competitor, and. 4* per cent. above the average; of »11 the ot#er tests.

Archie is but seven years o'fd, but he controls act entire elocttlcal road. It Is true that the road Is but one-tenth of .a mile In length, nevertheless it is fitted out just as completely as any road; that la run by grown persons, Archie is president, secretary}' conductor, brakeman and motormau, while his sisters and playmates are the passengers. The road was built for Archie by his father, who Is a St. Paul banker. There are three cars on the road- one motor car and two passenger cars. Archlc'H Hiiiltvuy. Each car is five feet long and twd feet wide. It is not a trolley road. Instead of a trolley wire there Is a long strip of iron, which lies between the tracks and supplies the electricity which makes tbe cars move along. On the motor car is tho rheostat, which is nn arrangement for controlling the electric current. By using it Archie can make his cars move ns fast or as slow as he pleases. On this car also are Hie motor and the brake, and also the reversing switch which makes the cars move backward. At one end of the road Is the powerhouse whore the electricity is produced. The electric current comes from a small dynamo, which is driven by a petroleum engine. There is also a shed where the cars are stored at night and in winter time. In the power-house everything is arranged just the same as if It was a large station run by a regular company. But Archie is the company in this case. His road is on the hill by the side of White Bear lake, and be is the only boy In that region who is able to go coasting in summer time. He himself will tell you, the best of all is, that in this kind of coasting you do not have to walk back up tho hill. The electricity pulls you xip- Archie is very proud of bis road, and spends the day currying his sisters and their dolls nlong the road. He can stop any place-on the way, so lie pretends there are several stations, and his sisters get out. Then ho takes them up again when lie comes back, and collects make believe money from them. They all have a very good time riding on the cars, and Archie is learning a great deal about electricity. Tray, the Dog of the London Docks Tray was one of those noble, dogs who live about the docks and save people who fall into tho water.

We do not know that a ray ever got a medal; probably not, but lio certainly deserved one, and he got something much better than any mod- He Ciime to Her With It. al, and that was a poem by Kobert Browning who made him celebrated. One day a little beggar child was sitting on the edge of the quay, just as so many do in New York in this hot weather. She was playing with her doll, and singing to herself and having a nice time, so that she forgot how near sho was to the edge, and all at once she lost her balance and fell into tho water. Tho poor child screaaiad as she fell in and the people on the dock all rushed to the edge and looked over, but the water war. very deep, ton or twelve feet and the current very strong, so that the men were afraid to jump in after the poor little girl, who was drowning before thoJr eyes.

Everything, depends upon the ingenuity of the render. An old negro servant who hnd noticed "Washington, D. 0.," stamped upon envelopes received by his mistress, said one day: 'I jess like to know, Mis' Hnnnnh, w'y dey nlus put dem letters 'D.

MtiHlcnl Paper Knife. Au Ingenlus boy, with any musical Instinct, can produce the most marvelous tone with an ordinary piper knife. In fact, one can play tunss wilh it by striking the knife against a hollow piece of furniture—the angle of a desk, for example. By experimenting all sounds of the gamut can be produced. By looking at the cut you will observe that the index finger shows tho ? Millie. manlier In which this is accomplished. Various airs can bo played after some practice with this primitive instrument. Sntc Sailing 1 in' Deep \Vnters. For waters of considerable depth and breadth, where the wind often raises a "nasty sea," it is better to have boats of considerable power and sea-going qualities. It is by no means necessary to procure an expensive cutter, with lead keel and elaborate rigging. A boy who has not a great deal of money to spare can get a good boat, For instance, there is the famous Barncwt sneak-box. This boat is suitable for either shallow or deep water, Slie has no depth to speak of, but she is broad of beam, and has, therefore, a largo amount of "initial stability," as it is called. Initial stability is always larger in wide boats than in narrow ones. Tho racing shell of the oarsmen, for instance, has hardly any Initial stability at nil. The sneak-box has a spoon- shaped bow, and this causes her to skim over the tops of the Avaves instead of cutting through thorn. She makes a great splashing when sho has the sea against her, but she sails like a ghost. It was front this peculiar type of craft that the celebrated designer Mr. Nat Herreshoff got the idea of the remarkable bow which he put on the Glorlana. That form of bow became highly popular, and most of tho-raclug- yachts built since the appearance of the Glorlana have it, or a modification of it. The extremely shallow fin-keel yachts like tho Pilgrim are simply enlarged sneak-boxes with a fixed centre- board of much depth and weight—Harper's Young People. Look ut the Star.

Here is the autobiography of suffocation from the New York Press. The victim is William Olss9n, who was eighty feet under water in a diving suit when the air hose broke and shut off his supply of breath. He was trying to attach a hawser to the anchor which the big steamer La Tourainet lost off Quarantine a few weeks ago. Olssen was hut- 1 riedly brought to the surface and soon after taken to the Long Island college hospital in Brooklyn. He •was well chough to leave the place a few days ago, and just before going away he related his amazilng experience to a reporter. His story is as follows: "About 2 o'clock in tho afternoon I had found the anchor and had made fast one line. It was not strong enough, I thought, for a 700 > pound anchor, and I was about to make fust another line. • "1 had been working rather hard, and found myself short of breath. 1 straightened up and signaled for a little more air. I noticed Irom the sound that the wheels above were going around very fast, as though tho men above had difficulty in sending me what little air was then coming. Then I got the signal to make ready to come up. At the same instant I was jerked o'f mv feet by the tightening of the life line. Quick as a flash.it seemed, all the air stopped. "Oh, such a fcelingl "I seemed to be ( hours going up. It was really but a few m.nutes — not over two, I am told. "My first sensation was a terrible smothering feeling in my chest. I couldn't breathe. My breast folt as if it were being squeezed in an enormous trip hammer, which was grinding my bones into my lungs. Then all the blood in ray body seemed to rush to my head, my eyes seemed to start straight out of my nead, until I could see them about two feet away, although every thing was really black around me. The top of niy head' felt as if it were about to blow off and lot out a tide of something which seemed to come from my feet, my hands and my inside. ' -My neck folt as if a big, thick rope — thicker than it was wide — was being drawn tight, tighter, oh, so very tight, around it. The back of ray neck stiffened so that I felt that I oould not move my head. It seemed to me that I tried to move my head and my neck struck a knife which, sharp as a razor, seemed to go clear through my neck and circle round my collar bone. "My collar bone then seemed to be pressed way down into my luns-s, and it folt as if that big bone was a double-edged curved sword reaching from one shoulder to the other over my chest, then circling round ovar my back. It seemed to scoop out my heart, lungs and other organs. I did not feel any pain in thoso organs, though .1 realized that I was losing them. "My throat grew dry and hot, so hot that it seemed as if I had a raging fire in there, and it seemed as if the heat from this fire rapidly wont clear through my head and out through my ears and nose. "Then the darkness began to be lit by many stars. "I never saw so 'many stars before. I could see millions and millions and millions of them, and each one of them seemed to shoot each of its live points clear through my head. 'I could feel that I was moving up. As I neared the .surface the, fearful pressure on my chest and head eased a little. I felt relief; though the darkness was just as black and the stars just as flickering. "When I reached tho surface I was dazed, but I was conscious. I knew what was going on ail the time. I could feel that the men above who were turning the wheel were making desperate efforts to get me out of the water, "When I reached the surface and the face glass was removed, I took a long, deep breath. Nothing 1 ever had in my life seemed as sweet and as nice as that first breath. It seemed as if I could not get enough of it, "By that time the stars had disappeared. I could get a faint gleam of light, though I could. not see anything. "The smothering sensation was gone. My eyes no longer seemed to •bo outsid9 of m y head, but instead seemed to have been sboyeo, away in. I could not open them. The flesh around them seemed pu.l'ed out to where the eyes were when I was under the water. It was broad daylight, but the sky seemed to be very cloudy i as if a big storm was coming: ou. My face was stiff and sore, The pain then was in my neck and shoul- tjera, My , eyes smarted dreadfully and I could feel that blood waa dripping from them.

She could not go on without hopelessly soiling tho edge of her skirt She could not stop for bundles. She stood in petrified perplexity. Ihen tbe spirit of Sir Walter Raleigh showed itself. The pick was dropped and the man grabbed a little stick and'said: "Watt, miss, an' I'll clean yer shoe off." There seemed to be nothing else to do, so ' she waited.
