A physician of Galion O says
For the last few years I have been a
sufferer from indigestion and al
though I have used various remedies
and prepared foods with some benefit
it was not until I tried Grape Nuts
that I was completely cured
As a food it is pleasant and agree
able very nutritious and is digested
and assimilated with very little effort
on the part of the digestive organs
As a nerve food and restorer it has
no equal and as such is especially
adapted to students and other brain
workers It contains the elements
necessary for the building of nerve
tissue and by so doing maintains an
equilibrium of waste and repair
It also enriches the blood by giv
ing an increased number of red blood
corpuscles and in this way strength
ens all the organs providing a vital
fluid made more nearly perfect I
take great pleasure in recommending
its use to my patients for I value It
as a food and know it will benefit all

ifW The First Decoration 1
May 30 is Memorial Day the day
when pious hands the country over
will place floral tributes upon the
graves of the dead of the civil war
The following version of the origin of
the custom is told by a veteran who
wore the blue
It was just forty years the 13th of
Ifjst April said he Two little girls
children of a Michigan army chap
Iain were the first to lay spring flow
ers on a soldiers grave dug in Vir
ginian soil and from that little act of
childish impulse grew up the custom
which Is now nationally observed
north and south
I was a member of the Second
Regiment Michigan Infantry Col J
B Richardson commanding which saw
most of the fighting of the army of the
Potomac until the war was well nigh
ended The chaplain of the regiment
They must have had in mind the little
acts of remembrance they had seen at
the gravesides in the grass grown
cemetery at home
On their way home the little ones
planned to go next day gather arm
fuls of flowers and put them on all
the graves When they were about to
set out on the morrow Josephine told
Mrs May of their project and the
sweet thoughtfulness of this child
fancy appealed to the older woman as
it only could have appealed to a moth
er who knew a hospital camp at first
hand and had folded the hands of more
than one young fellow in his last sleep
With her companion Mrs Evans a
young Red Cross nurse Mrs May
joined the children in gathering flow
ers and together they placed the blos
soms on thirteen graves all that they
found Union and Confederate alike

The Sunken Maine Being Decorated by the American Ladies Memorial Committee
was Franklin May a Methodist min
ister who resigned his charge at the
first call to arms and marched to the
front There were three Mays in the
regiment brothers two chaplains and
the chaplain for war blood seemed to
run in their veins Three Mays did I
say Four for there was the cap
tains wife and no pluckier patriot
served the Union cause than the wom
an who followed him to camp first at
Arlington and Alexandria and then at
a point near Mount Vernon which
was known as Camp Michigan She
brought with her their two daughters
Josephine aged thirteen and Ella
perhaps five years younger
One spring day at Camp Michigan
it happened to be April 13 the first
anniversary of the fall of Sumter
the little girls were wild flower gath
ering Their hands were filled when
they came across a grave a rough
unmarked mound that had closed in
over some northern boy for whom taps
had sounded that first twelve month
Oh lets put our flowers on this
grave cried Josephine He is a sol
dier boy
In a trice the two were down on
their knees heaping nosegays over that
bare hillock and clasping their hands
in delight at their happy contrivance
among the thousands that later were
to rest at Arlington and along the
shores of the Potomac
The next year they did the same
thing and the next each time in May
and now for the soldiers who fell at
Fredericksburg and other battles in
the Old Dominion What they did
was noticed and soon others began to
do the same There was opportunity
for all for as the months went by
graves were multiplying faster than
ever before in history and before the
close of the war the custom had
spread quite widely
In 1868 Gen John A Logan issued
that famous order of his as commander-in-chief
of the G A R which set
apart May 30 as Memorial Day a date
chosen late in the spring in order to
give the flowers- a chance to outflank
ever3r snowbank in the north however
late the spring Since then many of
the states have made the day a legal
There has been some controversy
here and there as to what source to
attribute the honor of suggesting a
decoration day Gen Chipman attrib

letter concerning such a custom in

A Suggestion to Morgan
At the Lotus club Charles W Price
told this story about J Pierrepont
Morgan A young reporter was sent
to - r Morgans residence to ask an
important question Mr Morgan is
out said the butler The reporter
noticing a carraige in waiting linger
ed near the entrance to the Madison
avenue residence and in a few mo
ments was not exactly astonished to
see Mr Morgan come out and start
for the carriage He dared approach
and ask the question as he had been
instructed Young man said Mr
Morgan didnt my butler tell you I
was out Yes but you tiiould
change your butler for one who can
speak the truth Mr Morgan turned
his penetrating eyes on the questioner
fcr a moment and then said as he
entered his carriage Call at my of
fice in the morning and suggest any
other change 1 in my establishment you
deem advisable The reporter did
call and has possessed fairly pleasant
relations with the eminent financier
ever since

his attack they were not surprised
of Mr James Culet of this place
Mr Culet had spent a small fortune
with the best physicians in the coun
ty and in addition to this he has tried
every medicine he could hear of
He had a very bad case of Rheuma
tism and Kidney Trouble from which
he had suffered for twenty years
Nothing he could get seemed to do
him any good and he was gradually
growing worse
He has no Rheumatism now and
explains it thus
One day I happened to see an ad
vertisement of Dodds Kidney Pills
and decided to try them
I made up my mind to give them
a good fair trial as my case was a
very bad one and was of over twenty
years standing
I used altogether 42 boxes and I
can truthfully say that they have
driven out every trace of the Rheuma
I feel like a new man and I can
and do most heartily recommend
Dodds Kidney Pills for Rheumatism
