per cent. It was hoped early 4n the
month that the Bank of England
might finish the year without in
creasing the rate but the financial
flurry in America upset these cal
culations and caused unwelcome
pressure here, necessitating protec
tive measures. Apart from the,
American demand, the Egyptian re
quirements for the movement of the
huge cQtton crop of that country have
yet to be sent; and money is likely
to bo wanted in Brazil and Germany.
It spems to be agreed that Paris will
help if necessary to the extent of

tion on tfee part of the Bank of
Franco and the fact that the United
States afforded help last year, prob
ably kept tho Bank of England from
raising the rate to six per cent."

Tempest, in a Porridge M
A. Well Known Journal Refuses tho
Advertising for a Well Known
Food Product on tho Ground
that the Claims Made for it
flavor of "Patent Medicine"
The publisher of a well known il
lustrated journal has stirred up "a
tempest in a teapot" or rather in
a porridge pot In an effort to induce
the manufacturer ' of a well known
food product to change the style of
his advertising. It was contended
by the publisher that extravagant
claims were made as to the curative
properties of this food which could
not be substantiated.
The claim that certain ailments
can be cured by food is not so ex
travagant as one might suppose. It
all depends upon the disease and the
foods. Of course everyone who pos
sesses accurate scientific knowledge
upon the -subject knows that real
appendicitis can not be cured by any
food. Appendicitis Is inflammation
and ulceration of the vermiform ap
pendix, which is a little "pocket" or
tubular elongation of the caecum.
The only cure for it is -the knife. It
Is caused by the retention of undi
gested food material in the bowel or
alimentary tract, causing fermenta
tion and finally Inflammation, which
communicates itself to the vermiform
But the prevention of appendicitis
is another .uestion. Every doctor
kn'ows that appendicitis can be pre
vented, and that its, prevention is
merely a question of eating the right
kind of food. The way to avert
appendicitis and its dangerous and
sometimes fatal consequences is to
eat a simple, nourishing food which
will stimulate "peristalsis" (bowel
exercise) without irritating the in
testines,' and such a food is Shred
ded Wheat. A daily ; dietary of
Shredded Wheat insures a complete,
natural and regular evacuation of the
bowel, and when this occurs, appendicitis-Is
Stimulating peristalsis, or nat
ural bowel movement, however, is
only one of the incidental virtues of
Shredded Wheat. It contains all
the muscle-bulldlng, bone-making,
brain-making material In the whole
wheat grain, made digestible by
steam--cooklng, shredding and bak
ing. Its porous shreds are quickly
permeated by the digestive ilulds and
hence are taken up and assimilated
when the stomach rejects all other
foods. It is the cleanest, purest,
most nutritious food made in the
world. It is delicious as a breakfast
food with cream or milk, or can be
used for any meal, in any season,
in combination wltb fruits or
creamed, vegetables. Your grocer
