Commodore Somerville Nicholson, of the
United States Navy, in a letter from 1837
R Street, N. W., Washington, D. C, says:
Your Pcruna has been and Is
now used by so many of my
friends and acquatnanccs as a
sure euro for catarrh that I am
convinced of Its curative qualities
and I unhesitatingly recommend

Tho day was when men of prominence
hesitated to give their testimenials to pro

SHORT ON SCHOOL TEACHERS.!
Those Above Third Grade Could Find
Eastern teachers could find good
employment In Nebraska just nbaut
this tlmo if they happened to bo of
that class that rates above tho third
grade. Reports received by tho state
superintendent Bhow that the stato is
short about ICO teachers. This is not
duo to a scarcity of material from
which Instructors nro made, but from
tho fact that tho ready made variety
aro all engaged, and that is tho only
kind tho school boards of tho state
want. Reports show tho number of
teachers now lacking In theso coun
ties: Cherry, twenty; Custer, twenty;
Dawes, ten; Red Willow, eight; Fron
tier, fifteen; Cheyenne, ten; Drown,
ten; Boyd, ten, and Logan, four. This
lattor county employs only about
twenty teachers In all.
In theso counties no teacher hold
ing a third grado certificate will be
employed, none but tho best being
wanted. Tho school term on tho av
erago 1b six months, and the salary Is
from $35 to $50 a month. From tho
superintendent's office It Is learrd
that tho stato has just as many third
grado teachers as formerly nnd that
it is tho higher quality demanded that
has caused the shortage.
BONDS DECLARED ILLEGAL.
Saunders County People Must Vote a
WAHOO Great disappointment was
felt by Saunders county peoplo when
tho news was received from Lincoln
of tho refusal of tho stato auditor
to accept tho $85,000 bonds recently
voted by Saunders county for a now
court house, owing to the Illegality of
the call for tho special election, which
lacks one, day of tho required twenty
eight that must intervene between tho
day of first publication and the day
of election. Tho county commission
ers acted upon what they considered
good legal advico in drawing up the
call and fixing the dates. During the
past week tho board has been listen
ing to plans of nrchtects and whilo
It was not Intended to commence
work on the new structure this fall,
efforts were being put forth to got
everything in readiness for early
spring. Another bond election will
necessarily have to be held, but
whether It will occur at tho general
election in November or another spe
cial be called, the county board has
not yet determined.

They Thrive on Grape-Nuts.
Healthy babies don't cry and tho
well nourished baby that Is fed on
Grapo-Nuts is never a crying baby.
Many babies, who cannot tako any
othor food relish the perfect food
Grapo-Nuts and get woll.
"My little baby was given up by
threo doctors who said that the con
densed milk on which I bad fed it had
ruined tho child's stomach. Ono of
the doctors told mo that the only
thing to do would be to try Grape
Nuts, so I got somo and prepared it as
follows: I soaked 1 tablespoonfuls
in one pint of cold water for half an
hour then I strained off tho liquid and
mixed 12 tenspoonfuls of this strain
ed Grapo-Nuts juice with six teaspoon
fuls of rich milk, put in a pinch of
salt and a llttlo sugar, warmed it aud
gave it to baby every two hours.
"In this simple, oasy way I saved
baby's llfo and havo built hor up to a
strong hoalthy child rosy and laugh
ing. Tho food must cortalnly bo per
fect to havo such a wonderful effect
as this. I can truthfully say I think
it Is the host food In the world to )
ralso delicate babies on and is also
a dollolous healthful food for grown
ups as we have discovered In our fam- j
ily." Name given by Postum Co.. '

Grape-Nuts is equally valuable to !

Grapo-Nuts food stands for the true
