It Makes for Health.
A man tried leaving off meat , pota

breakfast of fruit , Grape-Nuts with
cream , some crisp toast and a cup of
His health began to Improve at once
for the reason that a meat eater will
reach a place once In a while where
his oystem seems to bpcomo clogged
and the machinery doesn't work
A change of this kind puts aside food
of low nutritive value and takes up
food and drink of the highest value ,
already partly digested and capable
of being quickly changed into good ,
rich blood and strong tissue.
A most valuable feature of Grape-
Nuts is the natural phosphate of pot
ash grown In the grains from which it
Is made. This Is the element which
transforms albumen in the body into
the soft gray substance which fills
brain and nerve centers.
A few days' use of Grape-Nuts will
give ono a degree of nervous strength
well worth the trial.

Drinks and Love Mixed by Frenchman
OS ANGELES. CAL. Peter Slvers.
Lt a French sheep herder , living on
Aliso street , accumulated a Jag re
cently and became amorous to such
an extent that his arrest and deten
tion on an insanity charge were
Slvers in turn made love to n
horse , a wagon and a hitching post ,
and when locked up In the city Jail
bestowed the most distracting ca
resses and salutations of love upon the
cold and unresponsive bars of his cell.
The sheep herder Is the living ex
ample of the little mustached type
who so often forms the chief fun
maker in French film moving picture
He Is short and slight , with a curlIng -
Ing mustache and all the ravings and
elaborate figures of speech used by
his countrymen. Early one afternoon
Slvers began to gather about him
strange-looking bottles. He drank from
each In turn , without fear or favor.
Any other man would have thought
a while before taking such chances ,
1 had to stir him up every five 01 *
( en or fifteen minutes , and 1 had to bo
quick about It. Once ho got away
"I'd gene clean down to the other
end of the car , after we'd boon outj
about live hours , with n glass of water
for a lady , and Just as I was handing
It to her I heard n terrible noise down
at the other end of the car , and I
know what was the matter ; but the
other folks In the car didn't at first !
and half of 'cm Jumped up. The lady

pretty near upset the tray , and everybody - ,

at my pnssengor.

says , 'about half snores , and so wo

"Then ho handed mo over $33.00 ;
and 1 got from the other passengers
$2.70 , making the grand total revenue
fo the trip $30.20.
but with Slvers it was do or die , and
he plunged in boldly.
After all the bottles had been emp
tied and wore lying upon the floor In
disconsolate attitudes , the Frenchman
arose and went forth In search of ad-
veuturcs. He thought he owned the
earth. He tossed his hat in the air in
an abandoned manner , and cried his
delight. He approached a horse at

"Ah , zo gran' horse , zo big one , I

raptured Peter , with frantic attempts
to embrace the animal. The horse ,
being of common parentage and hav
ing no ambition to speak of , backed
away from the approaches of the little
man. Peter followed , hat in hand , mak-i
Ing the most elaborate bows In the
direction of the equine , and at the
same time casting the most beseech-1
Ing glances toward It.
The horse made a few attempts to
climb a telegraph pole , and Peter
transferred his affairs of love to a
picture of a fat damsel , painted on the
side panel of the wagon. Ho was try
ing to encircle the wagon with his
arms In his effort to embrace this
wooden affinity , when the driver came
forth from a nearby store , pried Peter
off with the too of his shoe , and , using
the same system of transmission de
livered him into hc gutter.

Ho managed to put himself on the

while at least three more , consider

his bell that ho sallied forth from the

Ho seems to bo a great traveler , for
his bell has been heard In widely sep

At uncanny hours lonely men and
women have heard the strange sound
of a bell faintly tlnkly in the wall of

A young man who had been at a
