NORTH DAKOTA PROMISED
Alex McKenzie Says that State Will
Washington, Dec. 10.Alexander
McKenzie, republican national com
mitteeman from North Dakota, had an
interview with the president last night
night and along talk with Secretary
Jjoeb to-day, in which he gave strong
assurances of support of his state of
"Roosevelt next year in convention and
its polls. McKenzie has noticed the
way in which eastern financial inter
ests are trying to break into the
Roosevelt strongholds all over the
west, thru Avestern banking interests,
but says this effort will not meet with
success in his state.
For a number of months McKenzie
has been living in St. Paul and says
he has noticed that the financial inter
ests of the twin cities have been
tainted with anti-Rooseveltism, as a
result, he thinks, of the work of the
'western banking and financial inter
ests with whom these western men
have constant dealings. He believes,
however, that Minnesota will be solid
l y for Roosevelt when the time comes.

What Food Alono Can Do for the
The influence of food upon the brain
and memory Is so little understoood
that people are inclined to marvel
Take a person who has been liv
ing on improperly selected food and
put him upon a scientific diet In which,
the food Grape-Nuts is largely used
and the increase of the mental power
that follows is truly remarkable.
A Canadian who was sent to Col
orado for his health illustrates this
point in a most convincing manner:
"One year ago I came from Canada
a nervous wreck, so my physician
said, and reduced in weight to al
most a skeleton, and my memory was
so poor that conversations had to be
repeated that had taken place only
a few hours before. I was unable
to rest day or night, for my nervous
system was shattered.
"The change of climate helped me
a little, but it was soon seen that
this was not all that I needed. I
required the proper selection of food,
although I did not realize it until a
friend recommended Grape-Nuts to
me and I gave this food a thorough
trial. Then 1 realized wh at the right
food could do, and I began to change
in my feelings and bodily condition.
This kept up until now after six
months' use of Grape-Nuts all my
nervous trouble has entirely disap
peared, I have gained in flesh all that
I h ad lost and what is more wonder
ful to m e than anything else, my
memory is as good as it ever was.
Truly Grape-Nuts has remade me all
over, mind and body, when I never
expected to be well and happy again."

QUEER WHIST VIGTORY
TEAM IS GIVEN A CHRISTIAN

AND WINS WITH EASE.
New York Sun Special Service.
New York, Dec. 10.When the whist
team ofthe Newark Bay boat club of Bay
onne defeated the Forest Hill four by a
score of 22 to 8 recently, the friend or
the Bayonne players could not understand
it. They expected the Bayonne team to
prove e'asy for the Forest Hills, who had
won from the Newark Bays and tied the
Cosmopolitans of New York.
It was slated to-day that the unlooked
for victory of the Newark Bays was due td

Goldzier, a young woman of 25 East Forty

of the single tax, vice president of the
Bayonne Suffrage club, and an enthusias

Mrs. Goldzier was informed that there
were' fears the Forest Hills would defeat
the Bayonne team. She became deeply in
terested and asked for the names of the
Newark Bay players, but she said she did
not want to know the names of the men
n the other side nor the team name.

JAI ALAI AT THE FAIR
General Wood's Favorite. Oame to Be
Installed at St. Louis.
New York Sun Special Service.
Washington, Dec. 9.Taking ad
vantage of the free advertising which
the Leonard Wood investigation has
afforded them, the Jai Alai club of
Havana have organized a company to
exploit the game in the United States.
It was found impracticable to carry
on the game in New York, so a rep
resentative was sent to St. Louis to
make arrangements for a concession
on the Midway of the exposition.
It is now probable that visitors to
the fair will be treated to an exhibi
tion of General Wood's favorite form
of amusement. Steinbert, who made
the arrangements, and who was
Wood's chief clerk, has large holdings
and Is president of the company.

ing General Wood's administration as
governor general. He submitted a
copy of his opinion, rendered in Ha
vana at the request of General Wood,
concerning the application of the Jai
Alai company for a concession to "op-
erate an amusement amphitheater.
This opinion declared that the conces
sion should not be granted on the
grounds that it would be a violation
of the Fraker amendment.
General Tasker H. Bliss was recalled
and said he strongly opposed the ad
mission, without payment of duty, of
the silver service purchased in New
York, by the Jai Alai. He received
mandatory instructions from General
Wood to admit the silver service, how
ever, and obeyed them.
" When I can't see danger there is no
danger." That's the logic of the ostrich
which hides its head and exposes its
body to the hunter. There are not a
few people who seem to have gone to
the ostrich to learn logic. The most
dangerous enemies of humanity are the
enemies which can't be seen, the disease
breeding microbes which infect the
blood. It is harder to get the microbe
out of the blood than to keep it out, but

" My blood was all out oforder, and I badtogo
to the doctor," writes Mrs. James R. Moss, New
London, Stanly Co., N.C. "He gave mc medi
cine which helped me for a short time. In the
winter of 1895 I got worse than I had ever been.
My tonsils were enlarged and my neck swollen
all out of shape my throat was sore and I could
not cure it. My husband went for the doctor,
but he gave me no encouragement. He helped
me a little, but it did not last long. He attended
me for twelve months, when I heard of a lady
whose condition was like mine, who was taking
vour medicine and was getting well. So I se
cured some ofthe medicine and began taking' it.
In one week I was able to do my cooking. When
I began taking the medicine I could sit up only
a few minutes at a time, and I could rest or sleep
only a little while at a time. My throat was so
sore at times I could not even swallow sweet
milk, and my tonsils were full of little eating
sores. My left side was swollen out of shape
and I could hardly get my breath. The doctor
said I would not get well, but three bottles of
Dr. Pierce's Golden Medical Discovery, three
bottles of his ' Pellets.' three bottlesof Dr. Sage's
Catarrh Remedy and the use of salt water did
the work and cured me."
