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. 

 

No. 8 is 

 

 

I X L BAKING POWDER. 

 

An unsurpassed article. Can be relied on for strength and purity. So 

many of the baking powders sold contain injurious substances and are 

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 

amount. 

 

_Recipe:_ Take one pound of _tartaric_ acid (in _crystals_), one and 

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

potato or corn starch. Each must be powdered separately, well dried by 

a slow fire, and well mixed through a sieve. Pack hard in a tin, or 

paper glazed on the outside. Buy the articles from a druggist. 

 

_Directions for use:_ For biscuits, pie crust, johnnycake, etc., use 

three teaspoonfuls to one quart of flour or meal; for cakes, two 

teaspoonfuls to a teacup of flour. Mix well with the flour. 

 

No. 9 is 

 

 

ELECTRIC POWDER. 

 

This is one of the best articles on our list--something that every
