Financier and Mirthmaker
American financiers who when in
London have had occasion to meet
the urbane yet extremely business
like secretary of the Bank of England
were surprised to learn the other day

that fairly bubbled over with the spirit
of childhood Between Mr K Gra

author of The Golden Age and

Found the Food that Saved His Life

Medicines failed and but let
him tell his own story For the first
time in my life of sixty one
to publicly
years I am impelled
licly testify to the value of a largely
advertised article and I certainly
would not pen these lines except that
what seems to me a direct act of
Providence saved my life and I am
impressed that it is a bounden duty
to make it known
For 3 years I kept failing with
stomach and liver disorders until I
was reduced 70 lbs from my nor
mal weight When I got too low to
treat myself 3 of my associate physi
cians advised me to put my house in
order for I would be quickly going the
way of all mankind Just about that
time I was put on a diet of Grape
Nuts predigested food Curiously
enough it quickly began to build me
up appetite returned and In 15 days
I gained 0 lbs That started my re-
turn to health and really saved my
A physician is naturally prejudiced
against writing such a letter but in
this case I am willing to declare it
from the housetops that the multi

as I did can find relief and health as
easily and promptly by Grape Nuts If
they only knew what to do Sincerely

The importation of this coin was
not voluntary upon the part of tho
banks he said but was forced upon
them by the military authorities prac
tically at the point of the bayonet
American soldiers entered the banks
demanding local currency for gold
some even going to the length of en
forcing their demands at the muzzle of
a revolver There were 23000 troops
landed within three months to pay
whom the quartermaster and paymas
ter drew letters of credit for 500000

unable to convert into coin and con
sequently closed the bank General

Four Hundred of Them Gather for
j LINCOLN Four hundred members
of the Nebraska Swine Breeders
agreed to forswear patent foods with
tempting labels and put their trust
in the calm prosaic statements of
1 science This took place after Pro-
fessor Avery read a paper pronounc
ing most stock foods a delusion and
a snare The chief ingredient in all
j these preparations was either corn
meal or bran declared the man of
He declared that he had analyzed
a large number of the foods and
found them all the same except the
following exception where he found
a preparation fearfully and wonder
fully made
I imagine it would be highly in
teresting to have been able to watch
the workings of the mind that solved
the problem for this medicinal food
Alter concocting it he was evidently
evidently proud of his work and will
ing that the people should be ad
mitted to the mystery of his medi
cine so he printed on the cover of the
package the various things he had
used The list looked like he had
gone to work much as some of us
would do if we went into a drug store
and asked the pharmacist to mix up
a little of every drug in the store in
one huge vessel hoping thereby to
get the drug which would cure our
ailment although we should not know
which one it might he The list of
things which that amateur stock
physician used occupied a whole side
of a large package and I guess he
had almost everything he could think
of written down there Of course
after composing such a mixture he
considered that he had a medicine
that would cure a vast number of
diseases and irregularities
The farmers decided after a short
discussion to rely on science and cut
out fancy goods
Former Convict Said to Have Affidavit

LINCOLN The story or opium be

through their friends on the outside
who Avorked the smuggling through
some of the guards

ter was thoroughly investigated and
while it was found that the convicts
were getting the opium no evidence
was found that would warrant the
charge that Warden Beemer or his
employes were implicated The war
den discovered several clever schemes
that were used by the prisoners and
their friends on the outside and re
poited to Governor Mickey who or
dered a strict watch kept and a thor
ough investigation made The gov
ernor stated that he believed the
smuggling had all been stopped and
that the prisoners were not now re
ceiving any drugs
