( Of tlie Food tliut Restored Her to
"My food was killing me and I didn't
/know / the cause , " writes a Cole , youag
lady : "For two years I was thin and
sickly , suffering from indigestion and
inflammatory rheumatism.
"I hud tried different kinds of diet ,
mlain living , and many of the remedies
[ recommended , but got no better.
f ! "Finallj- , about five years ago , nioth-
, er suggested that 1 try Grape-Nuts ,
( and I began at once , eating it with a
little cream or milk. A change for the
better begun at once.
"To-day I um well and am gaining
( Weight and strength all the time. I've
gained 10 pounds in the lust five wee/cs
and do not suffer any more from indi
gestion and the rheumatism is all gone.
"I know it is to Grape-Nuts alone
rthut I owe my restored health. I still
eat the food twice a duy und never tire
of it. " Name given by Postum Co. ,
B.tUle Creek , Mich.
The flavor of Grape-Nuts is peculiar
to itself. It is neutral , not too sweet
and has an agreeable , healthful quali
ty that never grows tiresome.
One of the sources of rheumutism is
ifroiu overloading the system with acid
'material ' , the result of imperfect diges
tion and assimilation.
As soon as improper food is ahandon-
ed and Grape-Nuts is taken regularly ,
digestion is made strong , the org.ins do
their work of building up good red
blood cells and of carrying awuy the
excess of disease-making material from
'the ' system.
The result is a certain and steady re
turn to normal health and mental ac
tivity. "There's a reason. " Read the

Jolden House at the other end of the

"On what charge ? "
"Treachery , " he replied.
"That would hardly do , would it ? "
"Well , then , embezzlement of pul

We had a little talk about the Pr <
dent's destiny , and I tried to persui
the Colonel to milder measures. In fa
I was determined to prevent such a m

"Well , we'll consider it when we've s <

wasted an hour breakfasting it's se >
o'clock. "
I followed b4m aiong the path , and
entered the little room where we had 1

"Ah , it's McGregor , " said Johnny wi
a bland smile , "and Martin. How are yo

Johnny said sweetly :
"Quits , isn't it , Colonel ? "
The Colonel turned from him , and sa !
to his men sternly :
"Have you had any hand in this ? "
They protested vehemently that the
were as astonished as we vrere ; and
they were , unless they acted consummati
ly. They denied that anyone had entere
" '
the outer room or that any"'sound ha
proceeded from the inner. They had ker
vigilant watch , and must have seen an
intruder. Both the men inside were th
Colonel's personal servants , and he belie\
3d in their honesty , but what of thei
ngilance ? Carr heard him sternly ques
tioning them , and said :
"Those chaps aren't to blame , Colonc !
[ didn't come in that way. If you'll tak
i look behind the bed you'll see anothe
loor. They brought me in there. I wa
-ather queer and only half knew wha
vas up. "
We looked and saw a door where h
said. Pushing the bed aside , we openei
t , and found ourselves on the back stair
ase of the premises. Clearly the Presi
lent had noiselessly opened this door am
; ot out. But how had Carr got in with
ut noise ? The sentry came up , saying
"Every five minutes , sir , I looked an <
; aw him on the bed. He lay for the firs
lour in his clothes. The nest look , h <
viis undressed. It struck me he'd beer
> retty quick and quiet about it , but ]
bought no more. "
"Depend on it , the dressed man was the
) resident , the undressed man Carr
Vhen was that ? "
"About half-past two , sir ; just aftei
he doctor came. "
"The doctor ! " we cried.
"Tes , sir ; Dr. Anderson. "
"Tou never told me he had been here. '
"He never went into the President's
ate General Whittingham's room , sir ;
ut he came in here for five minutes , tc
et some water , and stood talking with us
ar a time. Half an hour after he came
i for some more. "
We began to see how it was don * . That
rretched little doctor was in the plot ,
omehow or other lie had communicated
'ith the President ; probably he knew of
de door. Then , I fancied , they must
ave worked something in this way. The
octor comes in to distract the sentries ,
hile his excellency moves the bed. Find-
ig that they took a look every five min-
tes , he told the President. Then he
'ent and got Johnny Carr ready. Re-
irning , he takes the President's place
Q the bed , and in that character under-
ses an inspection. The moment this is
per he leaps up and goes out. Between
lem they bring in Carr , put him into
ad , and slip out through the narrow
) ace of open door behind the bedstead.

"I have it now ! " cried the Colonel.
That doctor's done us both. He couldn't
t Whittingham out of the house with-
it leave , so he's taken him as Carr !
windled me into giving my leave. Ah ,
ok out if we meet , Mr. Doctor ! "
We rushed out of the house and found
tis conjecture was true. The man who
irported to be Carr had been carried
it , enveloped in blankets , just as we sat
> wn to breakfast ; the doctor had put
m into the carriage , followed himself ,
id driven rapidly away.
"Which way did they go ? "
"Toward the harbor , sir , " the sentry re-
The harbor could be reached in twenty

forts ? The thought was too horn We. Tl
irawers of his escritoire and the safe the
