The high cost of living and th destlfTTte
millions of our land have given to the
world the significant declaration or appeal,
'Back to tho farm." Th farm dominates
th bwslnes ot the world. No agriculture.
no bualneas; no farm products, no city en
terprise. Th farmers fall and th city
folks starve. Aud the realisation of th ab
solute necessity ot th farmer haa changed
th cry. 'away from th farm,' to 'back
to the farm,' until today there ar men of
th trade giving up their work la the city
and applying their energy to th plow and
th hoe; there are business men who have
sold out their merchandise and have en
tered Into th enterprise of fruit culture;
and professional men, men of th law and
medicine, and even soma from th calling
of the ministry, have gone out upon the
homestead or ranch to conduct a revival of
chicken raising, etc.
People Iteady to Hesppnd.
"Th cry has fallen upon receptlv ear
and men have considered that there Is
nothing in all the life of th world so Im
portant Just now. Men and women living
In the tenement houses and districts In a
starving condition, with unsanitary sur

which such conditions create; this class

Be Made Vicerine
Lewis H. Harcourt in Line (or Peerage
and American Wife May
Share the Honor.
LONDON, Jan. 22. (Bpedal Cablegram.)
Mrs. Lewis H. Harcourt. an American
woman, niece of J. Plerpont Morgan, may
be the next vicerine of Canada.
The Idea of sending the duke of Con-
naught, Prince Alexander of Teck or soma
royal prince to succeed Earl Qrey haa about
been abandoned, and In semi-official circles
It Is understood that th poet will be offered
to Mr. Harcourt, who I now minister of
the colonies. If It I, and he accept, -he
will undoubtedly be raised to the peerage.
H undoubtedly would be very popular,
and his wife, the daughter of Walter H
Burns (who married a sister of J. P. Mor is a very charming woman ana
would make an excellent vicerine.
Mr. Harcourt Is doubly connected with
America by marriages. His stepmother is
a daughter of John Lothrop Mottley, a
distinguished historian and at on time
United States minister to England.

My Dear Doctor:
"Owing to some disagreement Willi
magazine several years ago they have be
come quite vituperative, and of late have
publicly charged me with falsehoods In my
statements that we have genuine testimo
nial letters.
"It has been our rule to refrain from
publishing the names either of laymen
or physicians who have written to us In
a complimentary way, and we have de
clined to accede to the demand of attor
neys that w turn these letter over to
"I am asking a few men whom I deem
to be friends to permit me to reproduce !
some of their letters over their signatures
in order to refute the falsehoods.
."We have hundreds of letters from phy
sicians, but ,1 esteem the .one thai, you
wrote to me ln Ilk among the very best,
particularly ln view of the fact that It j
recognizes the work I hav been trying
to do partly through the little book, "The
Road to Wellvtlle."
"I do not sell or attempt to sell the
higher thought which is more important I
than the kind of food, but I have taken I
considerable pain to extend to humanity :
such facts as may hav come to me on j
this subject. I
"In order that your mind may be re- i
freshed I am herewith enqjoslng a copy
of your good letter, also a copy of the !
little book, and If you will give me the
privilege of printing this over your aigna- j
ure 1 will accompany the printing with
n explanation as to why you permitted
Its use in publication In order to refute j
falsehoods, and under that method of i
treatment I feel, so far as 1 know, there
would be no breach of the cud of etthic.
"I trust this winter weather la finding

fruit that are yours by right.
With all best wishes, I am,"
Your very truly,

My dear 8lr:
"I 'writ to express my personal ap

ods, that ot accompanying each package
of your Grape-Nuts production with that
little booklet, "The Road to Wellville."
A mora appropriate, clear headed and ef
fective presentation of health-giving outo
uggestlon could scarcely be penned.
Grape-Nut I a good food In Itself, but
the food contained in this little arltcle I
atlll better stuff, I commend that practice
because I know that the greed and atren-
uousness, th consequent graft and other
types ot thievery and malicious mischief
generally can never be cured by legisla
tive action.
'Th only hop for the betterment of
th race rest ln Individual soul culture.
'In taking a step in this direction, your
process ha been so original and unique
that It must set a pace for other concerns
until finally th whole country gets fla
vored with genuln. practical Christianity.
I shall do all that lie in my power to
aid In th appreciation of Grape-Nuts, not
so much for th sake of th food Itself
aa for th accompanying suggestions.
"Visiting Battle Crk th other day

Gregory, my friend visited your factories

at the luxurious furnishings of th offices
generally and th general aulpment ot the

tesy and kindness that seemed to fill the
air with a spiritual ozon that was good
to breathe.
"Th principles expressed In th little
