Dr. Price's riiikln*r Powder Receives It
(Chicago Tribune.)
For leavening power, keeping qualities, purity and general excellence the
AVorld's Pair jury decided that Dr.
Price's Cream Baking Powder has no
equal. On each of its claims it was
awarded a first, prize or a diploma.
All lhe baking powders entered for
prizes were subjected to a most exhaustive examination, and the jury
was the best equipped to make the
decision of any ever got together.
Their verdict was supported by the
testimony of Dr. H. W. Wiley, chief
chemist of the United Slates Department of Agriculture at Washington.
Dr. Wilev is an expert ou food products and the highest authority on
such mutters iu America. This verdict settles a long debated question as
to which among the many baking
powders is the best.

Toronto, Jan. 10.���Another great
fire is raging in Toronto this ovening
and ut the present moment tliere is do
telling what ms-y be the extent of it.
It Ins already far exceeded that cf
Sunday morning in the damage
it has don.'. Very curiously
it started at the exact spot whore the
Globe lire of Sunday ended, cn Melindn
street. Tho Osgooilby building, whioh
adjoins that of 8 F MitKiillioti & Co.,
destroyed on Sunday, and which then
narrowly escaped, was the origin of
to-ni tht's fire, nil i From Chat [uiint it
spread west and sot tliWest to WaHing-
lon street. The follow lug rue the
places between Jordan anl Bay street
���.-���iiiirii caught and burne.1 out within
nu hour: it P Gray it Co., white wear;
Brei-eton & Manning, furs; Tlios Dun-
not .4 Co., furs; E Boisseau & Co..
clothing; Robert Darling & Co.,
wholesale woollens. Tiie lust named
building is very high, and the hose
reached only hull way up. The Kronen are almost powerless. The fire
crossed Wellington street and the
promises of Hunter, Rose A Co.,
printers and wholesale booksellers.
Hart A Riddle, wholesale stationers,
and Buiitin, Reid ft Co., paper manufacturers, are burning furiously. A
heavy rain began to fall an hour after
the lire started and afforded the fire
men some assistance, but this soon
stopped. Sparks are flying half a
mile from the scene of the fire. When
the fire broke out in the Osgoodby
building the caretaker and his wife
the latter prostrated from the effects of
Sunday's lire, were confined in a room
on the top flat. The fire escape could
net be reached in time und they had to
do their best to slidedown a wire rope.
The sick woman slid part of the wny
down and fell, turning a somersault,
striking on the telegraph wires, and
landed in a blanket held out for her.
She was terribly injured. She was
clad only in a night dress. The men
came down safely.
Later -It is impossible to accurately estimate the various losses of last
night's lire, but an approximate estimate of the losses is placet) at three-
quarters of a million, the insurance
reaching about two-thirds of that
sum. Tlie Osgoodby building alone
contained some 30 tenants, many of
them manufacturers and carrying
valuable stocks, of which not it vestige
remains. The total loss on stocks in
this building reaches $105,000.
The underwriters are discussing the
question of increasing the insurance.
It was moved that the insurance on
buildings over four stories high be
increased 60 per cent. This would
have passed but a member of the city
council, who wm present, assured the
insurance people that they would purchase four steam engines, ladders and
other appliances.

Tlie pearls were reputed to lie worth
fifty thousand, and were duly lodged in
Messrs. Carter's strong worn, with
every possible precaution. Within the

to the knowledge of Messrs. Carter

atroug lu.uii aud safes luul been tampered vi ilh, and a portion of the jewelry,
amounting to between fifteen and

The loss was not. so fnr, known to
the remainder of the staff. But Ralph,
Shirley, who had entered the bank ... a.
boy. uud had grown gray in its service,
wus admitted into the secrets of the linn.
I ha-1 for three years lodged in Ralph's
house at Chipham, and as his closest
friend and his stepsister's future husband, Ralph had, somewhat un wisely
p.-Imps, in ifided the secret of the loss
of the pearls to ine.
Tlie sliiick had affected him stro-igly.
He considered the honor of tlie bank as
his own, us was but natural after his long
service. He was evpn somewhat shocked
and pained at my determination, in lho
tnce of such news, to tnko my iiniiiial

He himself was going down tn Somersetshire. B'lt that was in order to make
private inquiries concerning the antecedents of ono of our clerks whom
Messrs. Carter had reason to suspect
of trifling nets of dishonesty.
Of nil this Kate knew not a word. She
was a very pretty girl with trustful
brown eyes and a good figure; but her
frocks did not lit her properly, and sho
luul no conversation! mil I. a foolish
yonng fellow with extravagant tastes
and a liking for French novels, now ami
then iul.1 myself tiuit, nlihotigli my fiancee was a denr girl ainl itiiich attached
to me, she was far from being my ideal
of womanhood.
Jii.it as the train wns shunt tn steam
out of the station, the door opened suddenly to admit of a young widow,
whose fnco was completely hidden by
Iier black crape veil. I luul hardly time
tu notice her before the train was iu motion, mid alter a hnrriod kiss to Ki.tuui.d
hiirni. rake with her brother, I settled
myself into n corner of tlie compartment
to re-nl Guy de Maupassant's "Bel
In about a quarter of an hour's time
a deep drawn sigh from my companion
drew my attention to her. She had
raised her veil, and was staring out of
the window with a look of pensive! sadness, whicli. in one so beautiful, went
straight     my hear.-.
For Flio was lieiintiiulr thin almost
to eiuai i ition, and perhaps, from a wo
man's point nf view, past her first, her
very first, youth, but all the more interesting ou that account. She leaked like
the heroine of a three volume novel of
the "intense" order. Her hair, under
her very becoming widow's bjunot, was
of a peculiar bright unburn; ber eyes
were gray and singularly brilliant, her
lashes long and jetty black. Her complexion was extremely pale and transparent, nud her voice, as sho nsked mo
presently whether I minded having the
window down, completed tny subjection.
It was a most delicious voice; of u panic
lillirly caressing quality that at once ap.
pealed lo the softest side of a-young
man's nature.
Pour thing 1 Her tale was n sad one,
ss 1 soon learned. Left a widow six
months ago by the Widen deal h of her
husband, a hard-working Eist Dull curate, she was now on her way to Paris, in
order to take a position ns govern i 'ss to a
wealthy French family, acquaintances
of the Rothschilds.
How different from Knto, who had
never read anything Btronger than
"East Lynne," and thought "Ouida"
"rather dreadful!"
Stella D.de realized my ideal of womanhood. Tho interest r-h�� took in mu
was extraordinary. She seemed never
tired of uslting me tlie minutest ques
tions as to how I spent my ti...e, who
WJre my chief companions, etc. As iti
excuse for hor curiosity she owned, wilh
modest tenderness, that I ha! inspired
in her ft vory deep interest. She wishe. I.
she playfully told mo, being suver.ii
yours older than I, to be my Lmly Confessor, and she very speedily got out of

however, she seemed hardly satisfied.
"I want your fullest confidence, denr
Edward," she said, with an angelic
Of course I accompanied her to Parte.
I could not let anyone so beautiful
travel alone. She was not due nt her
employer's house for three dnys. Mean
time, like myself, she stayed nt thu
Hotel de Suede.
On the first day of my arrival I received a terrible shock. Stella luul retired to her room witli a headache, and

when my attention was ntttwte I -by
the ocomirtnts of a very handsome nnd
well-turned uut carriage, drawn by a
splendid pair of English grays.

Could my eyesight be playing tne false,
or was it indeed Messrs. Carter's trusted
head clerk, my friend nnd future bro-
ther-in law, Ralph Shirley?
Any il.in.it I may have had on the
subject was dispelled by the look upun
his face when his eyes fell upon me. He
turned first red anil then ghastly pule,
and looked furtively away in u huuuteu,
terrified manner.
I hailed a cub and followed the carriage. It stopped before one of tno
largest and most expensive hotels iu
Paris. I jumped ont and laid my hand
upon Ralph's arm as he too descenuud.
"Ralph," I said, quietly, "I must
speak to yon."
He looked at me vacantly for a moment.
"The game's np then, I suppose," he
said, and led me without a word more
to his room.
"Don't tell Kate," he said, "and don't
ask mo what made me do it. It wns
