Three years' experience with one food is a severe test.
- What can be done when it is the proper food, Grape-Nuts, Is proved by
the statement of a woman who says:
"Up to three years ago I had sick headaches every week, and although
I had heard and read about how food affected one I never thought that could
have anything to do with my trouble until one day a friend came in and found
me suffering from a frightful headache and suggested that it might be the food,
telling ma. I should change my food for breakfast at least.
" 'Breakfast,' I said, 'why, I never have any appetite for breakfast,
there's nothing I would relish' She said, 'Did you ever try Grape-Nuts? We
ua Urn food every morning and find it Just what we relish and we know our
health is better since we have eaten it.'
"This was news to me, so that very day I got two packages and ate only
Grape-Nuts, and cream or milk for two weeks at breakfast and became so fond
of the food I soon found myself eating it for supper also. The result was my
headaches lessened quickly and finally disappeared, and for the past two years
1 have only had a couple and I have gained about 30 pounds in weight. I
can't get along without my Grape-Nuts and cream for breakfast at least.
"My husband is Just as fond of the food as I am, and he makes his en
tire breakfast on it, and today I. looked over our old grocery orders Just for
fun and found we have nsed 611 packages of Grape-Nuts food since we began
eating it three years ago. My husband's health has improved wonderfully,
for he used to be a frail little man as white ss a ghost, but now he has fine
appetite, good color, and has rounded out in flesh nicely."

ARAPAHOE, Neb., July l.-(8peelal
As Indicative of the prosperity of south
western Nebrasks, Is evinced by the bu'.ldy
Ing of residences and dwelling houses In th
towns and also by the farmers. As ascer
tained, within a radius of ten mllea, tblrty
alx buildings on outlying farms, at an esti
mated cost of 145.000, have been erected
during the last eighteen months, as dwell
ings, not Including many substantial barns,
gralnerles, etc. In the corporate limlta of
Arapahoe, during the same period, fifty
seven residences have been built, at an
aggregate cost of $6.n00. This showing for
Arapahoe Is undoubtedly nearly equaled
by Cambridge, Beaver City and Oxford,
while the smaller towns In Furnas county,
especially Holbrook, Edison snd Wllsonvllle,
show a larger Increase proportionately. In
the way of public Improvements, a net
work of telephone lines have been erected
In towns with rural connections, at a low
estimated valuation of 135.000. Arapahoe
has rebuilt a school building. In place of
the one burned, at a cost of $24,000. Beaver
City haa now In courae of construction a
new $20,000 building. At Cambridge they
have the first electric light plant In the
county and have voted bonds for water
works, aa haa Oxford, and also bonds for
an electric light plant, as well as Arapahoe.
The concrete sidewalk erase Is manifest
In every town in the county and miles upon
miles have already been laid and many
more are being constructed. There are
nearly $1,500,000 on deposit In the banks of
this county and but little demand for loans,
even at the low rate of interest asked.

convention met in the court house at Wa

represented but one, about !00 delegates
being present. F. E. Morrow of Mead
was made chairman and J. C. Hamilton
of Wahoo secretary. Delegates to state,
congressional and senatorial conventions
were chosen, a new central committee ap
pointed and resolutions adopted. Hon. E.
Rosewater and Attorney General Norrls
Brown were present and made able ad
dresses. The following resolutions were
We, the republicans of Saunders county,
In convention assembled, do hereby declare
that we are proud of the political party
that has shown Itself capable of faith
fully conducting the affairs of this great
nation. We heartily endorse the admin
istration of President Roosevelt and we
heartily commend the congress of the
I'nited States and delegation In congress
from this state on the success of their en
deavors to frame and pass such laws that
shall banish graft from our country and
establish Just and fair railroad rates be
tween all shippers and for the efforts put
forth to compel the companies engaged in
tne munufaciure of food products u use
proper efforts to give the consumers cleanly
and wholesome productions.
We commend tjovernor Mickey and State
Treasurer Mortensen for the decided stand
they have taken as members of the. State
Board of Equalization toward securing a
more equitable assessment of the railroad
property of Nebraska. We believe that the
action of the Burlington and I'nlon Pa
cific Railroad companies in refusing to pay
their full and Just share of their taxes In
Nebraska is wholly unwarranted and with
out cause, and we most heartily commend
Attorney General Norrls Brown for his
untiring seal in prosecuting the cases In
court In behalf of the state against the
said railroad companies and various other
trusts and combinations that have been
fattening on the taxpayers of this state.
We believe that a free pasa Is a bribe and
we favor the enactment of state and na
tional laws thut will prohibit any railroad
or oilier corporation from transporting free
the property or person of any public official
or any other person except It be an employe
of said corporation in their actual service.
We favor the udoptlon of the proposed
amendment to the state constitution pro
viding for an elective state railroad com
mission duly empowered to prohibit rebates,
discriminations and special rates to privi
leged corporations, persons or localities.
The following resolution was Introduced
by A. B. Fuller, delegate from Ashland, and
was adopted by the convention:
Whereas, The 8tate Board of Equalisation
fixed the valuation of railroad property Irs
Nebraska for the purpose of taxation for
the year 1906 at the same sum as was placed
upon it In 1915. notwithstanding the fact
that the reports of the railroads themselves
showed a large Increase In their earnings,
large amounts expended for the better
ment of their tangible property and an in
crease In their stocks and bonds during the
Whereas, This Injustice to the taxpayers
of Nebraska was brought about by the
vote of the state auditor, secretary of
state and commissioner of public lands and
buildings, despite the protest of the gov
ernor and state treasurer, and
Whereas, The said auditor, secretary of
state and commissioner of public lands and
buildings are seeking a renominatlon to
the offices which they hold in the coming
state convention, therefore be It
