M ARE ILL-MATED COMPANIONS
HB Remarkable Fact That Humor am'
HH Melancholy Seem Fond of Each
HB Other's Company.
BHJ Too often humor and melancholy go
HB together. They keep company like a
HB girl who likes to dance, and a fellow
HB who writes nice, gloomy poetry. They
HH fi tied together, but they don't hitch.
H They sympathize like oil and water
HB not. They tell us that some of the
Hl newspaper humorists, who actually
HH make people laugh, are sometimes
HB very glum and melancholy at home,
HH and can't see a Joke any quicker than
HB anybody else, when It's on themselves.
HH It'a too bad that a humorist should
DBl thus be'.'e his profession, but he's mor
Hi tal anyway--and who doesu't? It was
HH aald that Lincoln had to make Jokes
HH to relieve care. He said: "Were It not
HH for this occasional vent, I should die."
HH The vent of the humorist Is melan-
HH choly. Let him kick the cat, let hlra

M How He Kept His Clothes Dry.
HJ -Among a large shooting party on a
HJ Scottish grouse moor was a certain
BB elderly professor whose skill with his
Hi gun was hardly equal to the profundi-
HJ ty of his intellect. Suddenly a heavy

HJ was no shelter on the moor the shoot-
Hm tfs got thoroughly drenched through.
HJ At least, all but one suffered the pro-
HJ feasor. He had mysteriously ill sap

HJ The man who cannot remember the

REASON FOR SWINGING ARMS.
la a Reminder of the Days When We
Walked on All Fours, Says
London. Sir Victor Horsley, lectur
ing before a medical society, explained
the habit of swinging the arms when
walking. He said it was unnecessary
and a relic of days when we walked
on all fours. He said we still keep on
moving all four drubs alternately when
we walk upright.
Sir Victor set forth tome ideas con
cerning the functions of the cerebel
lum. Primarily the cerebellum must
be regarded, said the lecturer, as an
organ which has an Important part In
correct performance of many of our

New-born animals, he said, cannot
stand. They sprawl, and before they
can stand or walk or run there must
be a development of the cerebellum.
In proof of this Sir Victor pointed
out that the cerebellum of a full
grown cat showed fully developed cells
and fibers, whereas in the brains of

Doctor's Test of Food.
A doctor in Kansas experimented
with his boy In a test of food and
gives the particulars. He says:
"I naturally watch the affect of dif
ferent foods on patients. My own lit
tle son, a lad of four, had been ill
with pneumonia and during his conva
lescence did not seem to care for any
kind of food.
"I knew something of Grape-Nuts
and its rather fascinating flavor, and
particularly of its nourishing and
nerve-building powers, bo I started the
boy on Grape-Nuts and found from
the first dish that he liked it.
"His mother gave It to him steadily
and he began to improve at once. In
less than a month he had gained
about eight pounds and soon becarae
so well and strong we had no fuuher
anxiety about him.
"An old patient of mine, 73 years
old, came down with serious stomach
trouble and before I was called had
got so weak he could eat almost noth- "T"
lng, and was In a serious condition.
He had tried almost every kind of
food for the sick without avail.
"I immediately put him on Grape
Nuts with good, rich milk and just a
little pinch of sugar. He exclaimed
when I came next day 'Why doctor I
never ate anything so good or that
made me feel so much stronger.'
"I am pleased to say that he got
well on Crape Nuts, but he had to
stick to It for two or three weeks,
then he began to branch out a little
with Tlce or nn gg or -two.- He -got
entirely well in spite of his almost
hopeless condition. He gained 22
pounds In two months which at his
age is remarkable.
"I could quote a list of cases where ,S
Grape Nuts has worked wonders."

Road to Wellville," in pkgs.
