LOB ANOELE3, May 8. (Special Tele
gram.) Tha refuaal t Mn. Decker of Dea
rer to accept the presidency baa prove! a
great disappointment to the women of the
middle wett and occasioned reaentment and
bard feeling that promlaet to pat an end
to her unlveraal popularity. Her action la
admitted a mistake by some of Colorado't
most prominent representatives. While
her loyalty to Mra. Denlson Is appreciated,
the women feel that her first consideration
waa due them, especially ae their loyalty
to her-had practically made Impossible the
eucceas of another candidate from their
section at this time.'

prise la expressed at the other representa

tion of the Louisiana purchase memorial
Tonight sees a general scattering of the
visiting women, the headquarters being
broken up and the women departing for all
sections. The majority of the Nebraska
and Iowa women will remain on the ooast
for several weeks, visiting points of in
terest. Election and Address.
Two things distinguished the last day
of the Federation of Woman's Clubs, one
being the election of officers and the ad
dress of the president, Mre. Rebecca
Lowe of Oeorgla. The election resulted la
the acceptlon by ballot of the entire re
port of the nominating committee and the
election of the officers already named.
The scene at the- election of the presi
dent this afternoon was easily the most
sensational in the history of the federa
tion. Those who at three biennials have
clamored to name Mrs. Platt-Decker of
. Colorado as their leader, were roused to
enthusiasm at the.-mention of -her name
by Mrs. Gallagher of Ohio, who made the
nominating speech,' amid intense excite
ment Mrs. Decker arose in the gallery,
whore she sat with tbs Colorado delega
tion, and with earnestness declined the
honor. Many of Mrs. Decker's admirer
voted for her anyway, the vote standing
687 for Mrs. Denlson and 158 for - Mra.
The election proceeded with more or less
disorder and Mrs. Hamlin of Minnesota
moved that a committee be appointed to
devise some saner way of conducting the
election. The motion was carried.
Settle Charter Dlsesiaalon.
Aside from passing upon minor amend-
- nents to the bylaws -the convention, settled
lie charter matter by, accepting the report

committee which suggested the erection, ot
a ball of philanthropy at fit. Louis was re
ferred to the board of directors, the con
vention evidently being overwhelmed . by
the demand of 8100,000 aa Its. contribution
toward the plan.. ... ....
The afternoon was devoted to memorial
services. At, the final session, tonight Mrs.

wlU enable, us not only to, think things,
but do things, and do thlngtr not oniy
to Improve and uplift r.oursTvs, but to

although our site, numbers and material
success are Indeed Important-factors, yet
we wish to have our material success In
spired with a recognition of spiritual values
as well. i

The agitation and Unrest pervading our
organization seem to me to be signs of
growth and health. U Is by means of such
experiences that We Tire finding our soul.
We cannot form any adequate conception
of the vast changes that will be brought
about, as women become more and more
self-conscious. I use the term In its deep
sense and mean that as women become
more and more conscious, of their powers
and possibilities of their souls, they will
.Inevitably demand wider, fields tor their
activities and that with the wider play
of their activities will soma Increased re
sponsibilities. , .
The glory of ' fhotherfiood will receive
a new lustre by the- recognition of -what
motherhood means to civilisation. Even . a
superficial glance attne development of
society shows that Woman by virtue ot
her maternity has been, the conserver of
the human race. ".', '
Vakt number of WWmen realize the ne
cessity for some sort of training In the
home for. their children.: They believe that
right must triumph Iff the end; that recti
tude and exactitude are splendid weapon
with which to equip them. But compara
tively Jew women have any conception of
the needs of life, beyond the shelter of the
four walls In Which they Uve. The burning
question of the hetrr, outside the circle
of domestic ones,, seoan to them so occult
that it would be useless even to, make the
effort to understand 'them. They do hot
even surmise that the great movements of
life which are dubbed political or. econo
mic frequently bear heavily and painfully
upon the well being of their own little
nests. - -
On the other hand la. a growing num
ber of women, who are not only scanning
the horizon of life, 'but are studying with
passionate seel' the actual conditions .of

Senator' Gamble of South Dakota, ae
chairman of the senate committee on In
dian depredations, presented today In' the
senate,' In reference to the present law
iunder which claims growing out cf depre
dations committed by Indiana on the prop
erty of the whites are prosecuted In tbs
court of claims, a report which is of much
Interest to the peopls of all the western
states. The subject of the report Is a bill
Introduced by Senator Warren of Wyoming
tn remove, from the law -two conditions to
the allowance of these claims, vis: that the
person suffering the loss must have been at
the time a citizen of the United States
snd that the Indians committing the dep
redation must have been at the time not
hostile to the United States, but, as the
law states it, "in amity. The committee
In thle resort unanimously recommend that
the requirement of citizenship be removed,
as proposed by the bill. On the subjeot of
eliminating ths requirement of amity of
the Indians ths committee has had several
discussions and has not been able to agree
to recommend the amendment. The discus
sion on this point Is adjourned to the floor
of the senate, where a number of western
senators will desire to be heard In ad
vocacy of removal of this condition in the
law, which they regard as a harsh snd un
justifiable discrimination. The bill will
corns uo for discussion In a few weeks and
an interesting debate is expected.
Friends of the bill believe 'enough votes
can be counted on to pass it through the
senste. either as introduced or with slight
modifications. .As the bill read originally It
would In broad and simple terms wipe out
ths whole requirement of amity of the In
dians. It seems not tfnlikely that a sort of
compromise'. provision will be adopted by
which payment shall be mads for losses
suffered at the hands of all Indians who
were at the time of the depredations In
treaty relations with the United States.
Some crMics ot the bill have thought that
to restrict It to this would be more con
sistent with our policy toward the Indians
as established before the passsge of the
present law In 1891; while the friends of
the bill think this provision would not fall
very short of giving all they have asked

was a good illustration of the ethics in ths

breakfasting on Grape-Nuts and cream, a little fruit and perhaps
one or two soft egg.
If you ever try this experiment, you will always bless the day
of high beef that waked you up.
There's a reason why Grape-Nuts furnishes power to the body
and brain. The food contains selected parts of the field grains that
furnish phosphate of potash In a natural state that can be assimi
lated by the human body, this joins with the albumen of food and
forms the soft filling of the brain and nerve centers.
Feed skilfully and you can '.'do things."
The greatest brain workers In America eat Grape-Nuts.
Ask one or two, they'll tell you.
You meat eaters who are ailing In any sort of way might take a
valuable hint from the following statement of Chief Chemist WHeyr
of the Agricultural Department, in the Daily Press from which we
give the following extracts :
"There Is no doubt ot the fact that meat- eating is not essential to human life, and that
men can be wU nourished without resorting to a flesh diet.
I think the statement may be accepted without question that, aa a rule, we eat too muili,
not only of meat, but of all forms of food. The question ot limiting the diet Is based primarily
not on the prlciple of economy, but on the requirements of hygiene.
"At the early breakfasts which Americans are wont to indulge in, that Is. a hearty meal
before going to their daily work, the omission of meat ie to b earnestly advised.
"It ia well known that the men wli are nourished very extensively oh certain eereala
are capable ot the hardest and most eniurin? labor. Meats are quickly digested, furnish an
abundance of energy soon after consumption, but are net retained In the digestive organism
long enough to sustain permanent muscular exertion."

You will feel the energy of Grape-Nuts longer than any meal of
meat ' -' '; " j " -
Remember Grape-Nuts food' costs about one cent per. meal for'
each person and all grocers sell it.'

However, the Turgeons held ftfrtlble po

Today the sheriff was directed to serve
papers of ejection upon the Turgeons and

deputies. They found the Turgeons de
