Niece and Nephew
of Uncle Sam
should be deeply interested in what he has said about soda
crackers, because they are the one food with which all of
them are familiar.
Uncle Sam has given out figures showing that soda
crackers are richer in nutriment and body-building elements,
properly proportioned, than any food made from flour.
This is saying much for common soda crackers, and
much more for UnOedc) BlSCUlt, because they are
soda crackers of the best quality. They are baked bettei
more scientifically. They are packed better more cleanly.
The damp, dust andwodor proof package retains all the good
ness and nutriment of the wheat, all the freshness of the best
baking, all the purity of the cleanest bakeries.
Your Uncle Sam has shown what food he thinks best
for his people. His people have shown that they think
Uneeda BiSCUit the best of that food, nearly
400,000,000 packages having already been consumed,

"Second to none" Is llu proud motto
of the gullnnt and famous regiment,
tho Second Dragoon Kiiards, or Itoyal
Scots Grays. It Ih n happily chosen
motto, for the fame of the regiment Is
worldwide. Its brilliant achievements
on the field of battle during two cen
turies, Its striking nnd historic name,
Its grand nnd imposing uniform have
made the Royal Scots Grays, as an In
dividual corps, there Is no gainsaying,
tho most widely known and familiar
of all the regiments of the British

reign of tho second Charles, the dra

glory roll of the gallant grayB. Here,
with the English "Royals" and Irish
"Inniskillings," they formed the fa

never to be forgotten picture of the

A Curlotm Story.
In "A Diary From Dixie," by Mnry
Boyd Chesnut, there is a curious Btory
of a beautiful Washington girl, Muttlo
Iteedy, who, weary of tho abuse that
her northern friends showered upon
tlio southern general John Morgan,
took up tlio cudgels in his defense.
"What's your name?" asked an officer,
turning fiercely upon her. "My name
now Is Mattlc Reedy," was the answer,
"but, please God, I Bhall ono day call
myself Mrs. John Morgan." Up to
this time she had never met or even
seen John Morgan. Somehow tho
story came to his cars. He sought her
out, courted her and married her.
