A Nebr. woman has outlined the
prize food In a few words, and that
from personal experience. She writes:
"After our long experience with
Grape-Nuts, I cannot say enough In its
f.ivur. We have used this food almost
continually for seven years.
"We sometimes tried other adver
tised breakfast foods but we invariably
returned to Grape-Nuts as the most pal
titablo, economical and nourishing

"After using Grape-Nuts a short time
I began to improve and all these all
runts have disappeared and now I am
B well woman. My two children have
l-en almost raised on Grape-Nuts,
which they eat three times a day.
They are pictures of health and
have never had the least symptom of

ASIIIONS for a baby may sound
a bit far-fetched, yet fashions
there are, just as surely as for
grown tips. Of course there are
not the whimsical vagaries of
the Paris modes, but each year one
finds preferences for certain stylos
and materials in bab clothes. One
might call this a "corduroy" year, for
thiit is tho favorite material for coats
for tho wee ones. One of the best
features of corduroy Is that It laun
ders beautifully. It comes in many
lovely colors, and Is particularly pret
ty In white. It would bo difficult to
imagine a sweeter or more cozy
looking coat and bonnet for a very
small baby than one of white cordu
jroy. Snowy eiderdown Is another favo
rite material for the tiny one's winter
coat. It is a very warm lightweight
material. A coat of white eiderdown
is shown in the upper right-hand cor
ner of the sketch. It Is cut with the
sleeves and body In one piece, kimo
These are the newest lines in a ba
by's coat, and they are very becoming.
It docs away with the little shoulder
cape, which must be a groat discom
fort to tho child, for the capes are al
ways blowing up into his fate on a
windy day. In the coat Illustrated; a
dainty touch Is given by little pink
rosebuds embroidered on the front.
They are done with a plain embroi
dery stitch, and as there are only a
few of them, It would perhaps take
only an hour of two to work them, and
the result is well worth while.
The bonnet is of eiderdown, with an
embroidered bunch of woe pink rose
buds at each side.
Tho other sketch is a capo and hood
for summer of white cashmere. It Is
buttonholed with silk nnd embroi
dered in theeornor. The ties and bows
on the hood aro of baby blue satin
ribbon, nnd there la a frill of lace In
side the hood. If one could not put
so much hand work on tho cape, the
same model is very attractive made of
white challls, henriotta or cashmere,
and bound on the edge with pink or
blue ribbon, in place of the buttonhol
ing. These capes are very pretty
made of pale blue or seashell pink
outing flannel, bound and tied with
matching wash ribbon.
In all babies' clothes daintiness and
simplicity nro the keynotes, though
tho tiny garments must first be abso
It Is almost Impossible for women
who have many household duties to
attend tu do ull tho baby's sewing
bv hand. Of course, It Is preferable,
for the little dainty fine things seem
to require the most delicate of sewing.
However, there are many little jack
eta and wrappers that it. would be a
wrtsto of time for the busy mother to
think of doing other than by machine,
for they wear out quickly.
There has been a fancy of late to
make the woo one's kimonos and
dressing suoquos of guy flowered ma
terials, Japanese fashion. They are
remarkably pretty, too, these llower
ami butterfly and bird strewn gar
ments. Such tiny little things to be
so gay! The wrapper In the sketch is
tho very essence of r.prliiir. It Is a
creamy flannel, with apple blossoms
In delicate pinks, gorgeous butterflies
and brilliant birds seatiend over It
The ribbons are a lovely rose pink
livery bit of this wi upper Is made by
machine, it is cut on Hiinotio lines
uud Hat sca.ned. The ribbon binding
is first to be basted on, with the rib
bons for fastening basted on where
the stitching will pass over them and
hold them In place.
Tho two little sacques In tho lower
part of the sketch are also machine
made. One is of white outing flannel
with a pink dot, nnd plnkwash ribbon
binding and bows. The other is of
while cashmere, with blue and white
ribbon. Tho remaining jacket Is of
white flannel, with buttonholed edges
and ribbons of pink. This Is one of
the best models for a jacket, as it
opens out flat, nil In one piece, thus
making It very easy to launder. There
are ribbons tied under the arm to
hold tho garment in place. For sum
mer, this is an ideal model carried out
In pique, with colored ribbon, and a
little embroidery. The edges may bo
ribbon bound if there is no time for
hand work, but every baby should
boast two or three hand embroidered
jackets for "best."
Though the outer garment may be
made satisfactorily, even daintily, by
machine, it Is absolutely essential
that the underclothing bo band-made.
Machine-run seams are hard and ridgy,
and make the woo one uncomfortable.
All seams must be sewn as flat and
smooth as possible.
The llttlo white dresses nro tho
prettiest things imaginable. Only
very fine lace should be used, If any.
If possible, renl valenclennes or very
fine white cluny Is best. The most
delicate hand embroidery Is very
charming veritable fairy tracery. Of
course, this is not practical for tho
average woman, but the little frock
may bo fine und pretty, though per
fectly plain. A baby Is the daintiest,
cleanest thing In tho world, and one
would no more think of putting a
hard, coarse cotton dress on it than
one would think of putting a bunch of
American Reality roses In a wooden
The little gowns should be made of
nainsook, mull, batiste or handker
chief linen, or fine lawn. The bishop
style is very quaint, und the llttlo
round yokes are pretty. The neck
and wristband must not be too toght.
Some very pretty little dresses may
be found in the shops for quite reason
able sums. So ninny nro necessary for
tho habyklns that it. is as well to buy
a few ready made.
So much for the dresses. Then there
are the bootees. These are adorable
things, quiie fit to tread tho rosehued
path of infancy. There Is simply nn
endless variety of baby shoes. Three
aro shown in tho sketch; a pair of
cosily lloeco lined bootees, another of
pink taffeta with ribbon rosettes, and
a pair of soft kid Indian moccasins.
Put tliis very mannish form of baby
footgear on a wee boy, and ho will

Dora in New York state la 1830,
Mr. Teller when he became a youtiR
man, studied law and was admitted to
the bar. He sought the great west In
1838, and as Illinois at that time
seemed to be a long way toward the
setting sun, he came to this state and
began the practice of his profession
He only remained here two years
however, as he foresaw greater possl
blllties in the territory of Colorado.
That his Judgment was good when

In his life. Fifteen years afterward
whllo the nation was celebrating Its
centennial, Colorado was admitted as
a stato, and among the first acts of its
legislature was the election of Henry
M. Teller as one of Its representatives
in the United States senate.
Choson as a Republican, he served
In the senate until In April, 1.S82,
when he was called to President Ar

which this distinction was given to a

In public life, and what was destined
to bo Mr. Teller's greatest political
sorrow began to take form. A financial
stringency, followed by the repeal of

silver controversy upon the country,
aud Mr. Teller, an ardent advocate of
free coinage, found himself In conflict
with many of his political associates.
Subsequent developments are of loo
