As Johnnie Heard It.
Uttlo Johnnie hnd been accustomed
to go to sleep during every sermon,
desplto the scoldings of his mothor.
One Sunday morning sho sent him
off to church and intimated to him
that If ho went to sleep they would
go Into executive session in tho wood
shed on his nrrival from church.
As n test of his being away sho re
quired that ho toll her the preacher's
text when ho went homo.
Johnnie's natural propensity to
sleep was offset by his fear as to what
might happen in tho woodshed, so he
Ho came back conscious of tho fact
that he was on tho safo side, and
when his mother asked him what tho
text was he unblushlngly accused the
preacher of tho following text; "Moses
waB an oyster man and made oint
ment for tho shins of his people."
Tho real text was: "Moses was an
austere man and mado atonement for
the sins of his people."

stood before the big battery of milling machines in the
Grape-Nuts factories at Battle Creek, Mich., and after
inspecting both the wheat and flour said to the miller:
"That's selected wheat, and no 'patent flour stunt,
either. That wheat comes out of the rolls as honest
and unrefined as it went in. Where did you ever make
flour before that retained the true mineral content of
And the wise miller replied: "I have worked in
a good many mills, and I am no youngster, but let
me tell you, I never made whole wheat flour like that
until I came with this company.
The truth is, white flour is wofully lacking in certain
essential mineral elements which are thrown out in the
milling to make flour white and pretty, and its use
frequently results in impaired health anpl activity.
The famous pure food,
is made of honest whole wheat and malted barley; and
supplies in splendid proportion all the brain- and nerve
making, bone- and muscle-building elements of the
field grains, including their mineral elements.
Rich, nut-like flavour, ease of serving, and quick
