Case Takes Serious Turn.
The investigati on which has been un

a more serious phase, and it is under
stood that the administration will make
a deep and thoro inquiry into the case,
leaving no stoWe unturned to get the
truth. Tt is now predicted that the
investigati on cannot be completed this
week or even next. One man said he
would not be surprised if it should run
on for a month or more. This indicates
plainly that Secretary Taft intewds to
go to the bottom of it all.
Mr. Loomis says there is no dispute
as to the facts merely as to the sig

been explained. The re is not a bit of
evidence showing that the explanation
is not true. On the contrary, one of

If this view JR, correct, the White

'neapolis will profit greatly, whether the

from Chamberlain, or from Evarts, the

You and Your Food are a Misfit Sure
It's a relief to feel the sunshine and glow of perfect health,
bounding energy and "go" of the successful, brimful-of-
spirits ma n. The joy of livi ng real LIFE will come back
when you give your bo dy the kind of food it is mutely ap-
pealing for, that from which it can make good the daily
waste caused by brain work and exertion.
Suppose you abandon for a time the food which evidently
is not properly nourishing you, and go in for a 10-day test
comes to your case. Dr op tea and coffee absolutely and if
you want to get to the front by bounds cut your tobacco
down to at least one-half.
Now for breakfast,
A little very ripe fruit, a saucer of Grape-Nuts (not over four
heaping teaspoonfuls with some rich cream poured over it, insist on
cream, milk will do as a last resort, but water spoils the delicate sweet
flavor), a slice of very hard-baked toast, thinly buttered, and a cup of
Postum Food Coffee. No more.
That will carry you until lunch time, when the same ar
ticles can be used, and add a little hot clear soup.
Take dinner at 6 or 7 and have a generous portion of meat,
only one kind. Cut out the soup and fish, have 2 vegetables
and a Grape-Nu ts puddin g, a cup of Postum Food Coffee
(which will not keep you awake) and one or two slices of
buttered toast. QUIT THERE.
Two days thus will open yo ur eyes and 10 days make this
good old world seem a happy place again.
It's nice to be happy.
