etc.--without injury to the finest silks or laces. It will shampoo
like a charm, raising the lather in proportion to the amount of
dandruff and grease in the hair. A cloth wet with it will remove all
grease from door knobs, window sills, etc., handled by kitchen
domestics in their daily round of kitchen work. For cleaning silver,
brass, and copper ware it cannot be beaten. It is certain death to
bedbugs, for they will never stop after they have encountered the
Magic Annihilator. It is useful for many other things. A quart bottle
costs about ten cents.
_Recipe:_ To make half a gallon, take aqua ammonia, one pint; soft
water, one-half gallon; best white soap, one-half pound; saltpetre,
one ounce. Shave the soap fine, add the water, boil until the soap is
dissolved, then add the saltpetre, stirring until dissolved. Now
strain, let the suds settle, skim off the dry suds, add the ammonia,
and bottle and cork at once.
_Directions for use:_ For grease spots, pour upon the article to be
cleaned a sufficient quantity of the Magic Annihilator, rubbing well
with a clean sponge and applying to both sides of the article. Upon
carpets and coarse goods where the grease is hard and dry use a stiff
brush and wash out with clear cold water. For shampooing, take a small
quantity, with an equal quantity of water; apply to the hair with a
stiff brush, brushing into the scalp, and wash out with clear water.
For killing bedbugs, apply to the places they frequent.

altogether unreliable. This powder can be relied on for strength and
purity. It produces the most delightfully white, light and flaky
biscuits. For cakes it is unsurpassed. Try it and be convinced. This
powder is composed of the very best and purest substances, and
therefore is perfectly wholesome. Any lady can prepare enough in a few
minutes to last her six months. It will only cost a trifle--not
one-quarter of what you would have to pay your grocer for the same

one-half pounds bicarbonate of soda, and one and one-half pounds of

paper glazed on the outside. Buy the articles from a druggist.
_Directions for use:_ For biscuits, pie crust, johnnycake, etc., use
