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 Riven 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 Uneeda BlSCllIt, because they aro
soda crackers of the best quality. They are baked better
more scientifically. They are packed better more cleanly.
The damp, dust atid odor proof package retains all tne 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.

Tho situation on tho open govern

carrying capacity has probably boon
reduced one-half by over-grazing, and
Is still falling. Range controversies
in many places are active and hitter,
and life and property are often In
danger. The Interests both or tho
live stock Industry and of the govern

present situation Is Indefensible from
any point of view, and It should bo

which will provide for government
control of tho public rnngo through
the department of agriculture, which

rules for grazing specially adapted to
its needs and should authorize the col

Above all, tho rights or tho settler

Much or the public land can only

other stock owners from uBlng land
to which they have an equal right un

promotes the use of the rnngo nnd
