The Boer generals looked remarkably well
and evidently were much pleased at the
heartiness of the welcome accorded them,
Soon after landing they boarded tbe steam-
ship Nigeria, where Joseph Chamberlain,
the colonial secretary; Earl Roberta and
General Lord Kitchener greeted them.
They were also Introduced to Mrs. Cham
berlain and Lady Roberta, with whom they
chatted for some time.
Official arrangements bad been' made to
permit the generals to witness ths naval re
view, but 'after a eonferenee with Abraham
Fischer, tbe former Boer delegate, who
came from The Hague, It waa announced
that they Intended to proceed direct to Lon

Lucas Meyer, who died of heart disease on

' ' General Dewet, In conversation bsrs, con
firmed tbe statement that be and his com
panions will visit the United States before
returning to South Africa.
The Boer generals rached London In the
course of the afternoon and were loudly
cheered In the streets. Asked why they
had declined the government's Invitation
to witness, the naval review, the visitors
remarked that they were "too tired after
the long war and needed a rest."
It Is still uncertain whether or not they
will return to Cowes to see the king. .
Tbs scene at the railroad station on ths
arrival of ths Boers was remarkable. An
enormous crowd or people gave them a
welcome as hearty as given to Lord Roberts
and Lord Kitchener when tbey arrived here
from South Africa. Shouts of "Good old
Dewet," "Our friends the enemy" and
"Brave soldiers all" were frequently heard
amidst aalvoa of cheers.
General Dewet waa fairly cornered by a
mob and had to be rescued by tbs police,
who by sheer force cleared a line of re
treat for him.

their reason that If they demonstrated that

Don't let anyone scare you about food and don't be a fool the other way.
Your food either makes or breaks you. , That's easily understood. 1
The way you now feed yourself is RIGIIT (FOR YOU) if you are perfectly well. Stick to it
But you can wager your last dollar your food IS WRONG IF YOU ARE AILING IN ANY
Perhaps a word from a food expert might help you.
APPENDICITIS suddenly sets in after the bowels can no longer stand the abuse of too
much starchy food like white bread, potatoes, pasty wheat or oats, sago, tapioca, etc., etc. These
are nearly solid starch and starch is required by the body, but when white bread for instance is
eaten in quantity, a part of the starch sours, ferments, and makes gas that inflames and irritates
the bowels, producing constipation and peritonitis, or appendicitis.
Don't think you can leave off all starchy food, that's being a fool the other way. Starch
helps furnish the energy for the body, PROVIDED that starch Is digested and does not ferment
in the bowels.
A practical knowledge of these facts led to the invention of
In this food the starch is changed into Grape Sugar in exactly the same way it is In the di
gestive organs of tbe human body, so when you eat Grape-Nuts you get tbe needed starchy food;
already passed through the first form of digestion, safe and ready for Immediate assimilation by
nature, it is thereupon quickly taken up by the blood, and carried to the parts of the body for
nutrition and strength.
No gas, no overtaxing of the digestive organs, no constipation and no dancer from
either peritonitis or appendicitis. v
Remember the wheat and barley in Grape-Nuts are not predigested by any sort of treatment
except moisture heat and time to let the diastase in the grains grow and thus change the starch.
It's only in the "know how" and you can have the good of it by using Grape-Nuts.
Another and most important thing is that, white flour, in order to be white, must have the .
most valuable part of the wheat berry thrown out in milling, because the Phosphate of Potash,
for rebuilding the gray matter in brain and nerve centers, the lime for teeth and bone, and several
other most important elements lie up close to the shell of tbe wheat berry and in the dark colored
part. The white flour miller throws this out.
The makers of Grape-Nuts keep these ingredients in. That's why steady users of
Grape-Nuts are Brainy, Nervy, Healthy people. .
Does Grape-Nuts food taste good? Try it dry and crisp, just as it comes from the package.
It's already cooked and ready to serve with cream or rich milk poured over. Or try some of the
delicious recipes found in the free recipe book in each package. ,
The above is just plain old common sense applied to the subject of food, and the statements
are absolute scientific facts that may be relied upon.
Grape-Nuts food is sold by all first-class grocers and served at all firstclass hotels and made
