exhibited. The exhibits of the drawing
and wood-carving classes were particu?
larly interesting. The work of each child
was displayed under his or her name,
and' the walls of the large drawing room
were hung with the work of the class
in water colors, brush work, charcoal,
pen and ink; designs in tints and shades
in colored paper, and free-hand drawings.
The subjects were from nature and casts,
and showed well both for the pupil and
teacher. The designs in wood carving
placed upon the work benches in the
centre of the hall attracted possibly the
greatest attention. Each design repre?
sented the use of a different instrument,
and' some of them were remarkable in
their perfect finish.

from ,top-mast to 'keel, carved' from a
block of iwoodi by 'Alton Yeatotn. wnne
this was possibly the most intricate picco
of work, there were others that in deli?

?much timo to the study of the Lloyd

Sweeping Injunction Ajjainst Strikers
in Kansas City.
KANSAS CITT, MO., May 12.?The Fed?
eral authorities found alleged cause for
interfering this evening in the strike Inau?
gurated this morning by the union em?
ployes of the Met:opolitan Street Railway
Company. Judge Hook, of the United
States District Court, to-day issued an
injunction that Is more absolute and
sweeping in its term's than any injunction
ever before secured in this district in a
contention between labor and capital.
The injunction is made absolute for a
week, the matter being set for a hearing
on Saturday next.
The injunction Is based upon the fact
that several of the persons complained
against are residents of other States, and
the further fact that the strikers threaten
to prevent the company from carrying out
its contract to transport the city mail
The injunction- restrains the persons
named, and? am others, from in any. man?
ner tloitering in large .numbers in or about
a.ny of the ?places named, or making loua
or boisterous noises on the vicinity there?
of for the 'purpose of intimidating or in?
terfering with the company's employes.
The sheriff swore in a large force ot
deputies to-day, and a force of Federal
marshals ?will be on haind to see that the
injunction! irt enforced.

Kxperiment Made With Food.
A certain professional woman In New
York, connected with one of the large in?
stitutions there, has had a curious expe?
rience with an experiment In using a cer?
tain kind of food. It seems that in Octo?
ber last she had a serious illness and was
at the point of death, the brain and body
in the last stages of exhaustion. Her re?
markable experience with the food was
brought to the attention of the makers by
some of her friends, and in re-ply to a
letter she wrote as follows:
"I have no objection to the public
knowing of the -wonderful transformation
my system has undergone by the use of
Grape-Nuts since November, 1899. I began
using the food when convalescing and
when In an exceedingly low condition; and
used a small quantity and became so
fascinated with the flavor that I gradually
discontinued nearly all other food, includ?
ing tea and coffee.
"Up to now I have consumed about 150
packages, and have gained twenty pounds
In flesh. Am a marvel' to all my friends
who are aware ' of my former state of
health. There are about'fifty families who
have adopted the use of Grape-Nuts be?
cause of my experience. You can give
my name and home address, but do not
mention" my professional connection."
Mrs. E. N. Wood, 832 Amsterdam Avenue,
New York city.
There is a reason. The makers of Grape
Nuts select certain parts of the grains of
the field that contain delicate particles of
phosphate of potash and albumen. These
elements, when combined in the human
body, -o directly to rebuild, the gray mat?
ter in the brain and nerve centres of the
This is a demonstrated fact, and can be
proven b# any one who cares to make the
test. "When one nourishes and builds up
the brain and nerve centres, that is prac?
tically the keynote to the whole health
proposition, for when the nervous system
is In perfect poise all parts of the body
Grape Nuts are for sale at all the large
grocery stores In the country, and can be
found in use In practically all of the best

Complaint as to Treatment of Federal
RALEIGH, N. C, May 12.-Special.?
The Government has heard much com?
plaint of the treatment of Federal pris?
oners at the penitentiary here, and has
sent two special agents here to Investi?
gate things. Warden Green shot and
mortally wounded a Federal prisoner last
There are conflicting reports as to the
shooting. Onlv officials and convicts saw
the trouble. The penitentiary has been
the hot-bed of all sorts of scandal for
several years. Green says he shot the
man Hofne in self defence; that he was
advancing? nnnn him with a large stick.
J. C. L. Harris, the closest friend' of
Governor Russell, repudiates the State
ticket. He savs. further, that if Gov?
ernor Russell had given his interview ten
davs earlier as to the Pearson-Crawford
congressional contest that Pearson (Rep.)
would have been defeated.
The Republicans realize fhat the seat?
ing of Pearson will hurt the party very
badlv In North Carolina, for it is made
very"plain that It is by fraud that Craw?
ford was ousted.
