to the pleasure and increased meas

come to me from adopting Grape Nuts
food as one of my articles of diet
For several years 1 was much dis
tressed during the early part of each
day by indigestion My breakfast
usually consisting of oatmeal milk
and eggs seemed to turn sour and
failed to digest After dinner the
headache and other symptoms follow
ing the breakfast would wear away
only to return however next mom
Having heard of Grape Nuts food
I finally concluded to give it a fair
trial I quit the use of oatmeal and
eggs and made my breakfasts of
Grape Nuts cream toast and Postum
The result was surprising in improv
ed health and total absence of the
distress that had for so long a time
followed the morning meal My diges
tion became once more satisfactory
the headaches ceased and the old
feeling of energy returned Since that
time four years ago I have always
had Grape Nuts food on my breakfast
I was delighted to find also that
whereas before I began to use Grape
Nuts food I was quite nervous and be
came easily wearied in the work of
preparing sermons and in study a
marked improvement in this respect
resulted from the change in my diet
I am convinced that Grape Nuts food
produced this result and helped me
to a sturdy condition of mental and
physical strength
I have known of several persons
who were formerly troubled as I was
and who have been helped as I have
been by the use of Grape Nuts food

Decision Is Made Partly a Compli
ment to President Roosevelt The
Question of Armistice Informlly Dis
cussed at White House
WASHINGTON Russia and Japan
have tentatively decided each to ap
point three plenipotentiaries to repre
sent them in the Washington confer
ence M Nelidoff it is understood has
already accepted the chairmanship of
the Russian mission and is being con
sulted about the selection of his as
sistants but Washington has not yet
heard whether Marquis Itos health
will permit him to come as the rank
ing Japanese plenipotentiary The be
lief here is that Field Marshal Yama
gata will be designated in Marquis
Itos place should the marquis be un
able to accept It is believed that the
conference will convene here about
the middle of August
Pending the official announcement
of the plenipotentiaries little toward
the arrangement of an armistice is be
ing done on this side Japan will not
take the initiative in requesting an
armistice It is improbable however
that she would insist on Russia mak
ing the request It is generally expect
ed that when the missions have been
announced the president will suggest
to the belligerents the advisability of
a limited truce and that this sugges
tion will be accepted Instructions will
then go to Linevitch and Oyama to
sign the armistice
The whole question of an armistice
has been informally discussed at the
frhite house and the belief in diplo
matic circles is that there will not
be a hitch on this score Japan pre
fers that the armistice should be sign
ed in the field by the Russian and
Japanese commanders and there are
indications that this will find approval
in St Petersburg
General commendation is voiced in
diplomatic circles of the presidents
act in not communicating to Japan
the suggestion from St Petersburg
for a reconsideration of the selection
of Washington for the conference
The irrevocable opposition of Japan
to any capital of Europe was a mat
ter of common knowledge in Wash
ington and the transmission of any
such suggestion it was realized would
only invite an emphatic refusal from
Tapan and possibly seriously menace
the convening of the conference It
was learned Sunday that the issuance
of the authoritative statement on the
subject by the Russian embassj here
late Saturday night was based on ad
vices from St Petersburg that the se
lection of Washington was to be offi
cially announced in the Russian capi
tal thus removing all doubt on that
score There have been several ex
planations current among diplomats
as to the reason for Russias sugges
tion one being that it was based on
a misunderstanding about the finality
of the decision to select Washington
and the other the St Petersburg gov
ernment believed the president great
ly preferred The Hague Both expla
nations are unofficial and in view of
die Russian embassys authoritative
statement the incident is regarded as
RENO Nev The announcement is

short distance north of Donner lake
and the series will end at the foot of
Blue canyon on the American river
The contract calls for an expenditure
of over 525000000

Threat to Extend Strike
NEW YORK President Frank Mc

that if the empyers in New York and
New Jersey where his men are now
on strike do not grant an increase
of 25 cents a day he will extend the
strike to the entire country
CHICAGO The teamsters joint
council apparently has come to the
conclusion that the strike is a dead

It is Probable That Protocol Will Be
Negotiated in Manchuria
WASHINGTON Alone on the
plains of Manchuria midway between
the two great armies the Russian and
Japanese commanders will meet to
sign the armistice which will pave the
way for the Washington conference
if the present tentative program is fol
lowed Exchanges on these points are
now in progress between Tokio and
St Petersburg via Washington but no
final conclusion has been reached It
was first thought a preliminary proto
col might be signed at Washington
providing for a temporary cessation of
hostilities but in view of the fact that
this concerns directly the armies in
the field it is believed that the belli
gerents will agree that arrangement
of the armistice be best entrusted to
Linevitch and Oyama the respective
commanders-in-chief who in such
event would be telegraphed special
powers to sign
Strained Relations Give Rise to Seri

apprehension but while openly ad

involved the officials protest against
this being made the basis of exagger

circulated for several days past by a
small and uninfluential section of the
press notably by the Patrie and the

He Appoints a Committee of Five to
Look Into Matters Salarie Should
Be Commensurate With Service
WASHINGTON -The president has
appointed a committee of five to re
port to him on improved methods of
doing the public business in the vari
ous bureaus and departments
In a letter addressed to Charles H
Keep assistant secretary of the treas
ury President Roosevelt says
You are hereby designated as chair
man of a committee to consist in addi
tion to yourself of the following four
gentlemen Frank II Hitchcock first
assistant postmaster general Law
rence O Murray assistant secretary
of commerce and labor James R
Garfield commisioner of corporations
and Gi fford Pinchot forester in the de
partment of agriculture who are to in
vestigate and find out what changes
are needed to place the conduct of the
executive business of the government
in all its branches on the most econ
omical and effective basis in the light
of the best modern business practice
Salaries should be commensurate
with the character and market value
of the service performed and uniform
for similar service in all departments
The existence of any method
standard custom or practice is no rea
son for its continuance when a better
is offered
There should be a systematic inter
department co operation in the use of
expert or technical knowledge The
business methods of the different de
partments should be substantially uni
form In the adoption of methods and
the performance of work every step
which is not clearly indispensable
should be eliminated
A resolute effort should be made
to secure brevity in correspondence
and the elimination of useless letter
writing There is a type of bureaucrat
who believes that his entire work and
that the entire work of the govern
ment should be the collecting of pa
pers in reference to a case comment
ing with eager minuteness on each
and corresponding with other officials
in reference thereto These people
really care nothing for the case but
only for the documents in the case In
all branches of the government there
is a tendency to greatly increase un
necesary and largely perfunctory let
ter writing In the army and navy the
increases of paper work is a serious
menace to the efficiency of fighting
officers who are often required by
bureaucrats to spend time in making
reports which they should spend in
increasing the efficiency of the battle
ships or regiments under them

whether Russia appoints real pleni

conditions but to at the same time

Janan expects only commissioners
equipped with such powers the minis
ter says and will name its terms only
to such representatives of Russia as
are empowered to end the war
WASHINGTON Whether the selec
tion of Washington will affect the ten
tative selection by Russia of M Ned
lioff as one of her envoys is not
known though the opinion here is that
he will come from Paris Private ad

Remarkable Cure of Dropsy by Dodds
- Kidney Pills
Sedgwick Ark June 19 The caso
of W S Taylors little son is looked
upon by those interested in medical
matters as one of the most wonderful
on record In this connection his fath
er makes the following statement
Last September my little boy had
dropsy his feet and limbs were swol
len to such an extent that he could
not walk or put his shoes on The
treatment that the doctors were giving
him seemed to do him no good and
two or three people said his days
were short even the doctors two of
the best in the country told me he
would not get better I stopped their
medicine and at once sent for Dodds
Kidney Pills I gave him three Pills a
day one morning noon and night fop
eight da s at the end of the eighth
day the swelling was all gene but to
give the medicine justice I gave him
eleven more pills I used thirty five
Pills in all and he was entirely cured
I consider your medicine saved my
childs life When the thirty five Pills
were given him he could run dance
and sing whereas before he was an
invalid in his mothers arms from
morning until night
Some people go through life like a
cat meaching through a blind alley
