Had a Half Dozen Matrimonial ten
tores Prosecuted by Miss Ksther
Alfred C. Ells, formerly of Rock Isl
and, a prisoner in the St. Louis jail
charged with bigamy, was called for a
preliminary hearing in the court of
criminal correction Tuesday. lie
waived examination and was held to
the grand jury in the sum of 800.
Not being able to furnish bond he was
returned to jad.
Ells was a soldier in the late war
and fought in the regular army in
l orto Rico and in Cuba. When he re
turned he was arrested on a charge of
passing two worthless checks. While
the trial was pending it was discov
ered that he had a wife living in Carth
age, 111., besides one it St. "Louis.
Warrant ISworn Out.
A warrant was then sworn out
against him charging bigamy by Miss
Esther Block, his St. Louis wife. Nora
Ells, of Carthage, is Ells' lawfully
wedded wife. Beside these two it is
said that Ells had four more matrimo
nial adventures and has served time
in the penitentiary for bigamy.
A man said, when he was a boy his
grandma used to brown some slices
of bread and pound them up iu an old
mortar and feed them wjtli milk to
his brothers and himself.
He remarked that he believed Grape-
Nuts, the famous food, was made in
the same way. but a gentleman in the
party remarked that he had investi
gated Grape-Nuts carefully and found
that the grain from which it was made
was prepared by various processes of
long soaking, warmth and time, by
which the pecular element under the
shell of wheat and barley is developed.
Ibis element is called diastase and its
work is to change the starch of grains
into grape sugar. I he same process
is gone through with in the human
body when auv whole grain prepara
tion is used, such as rolled wheat or
oats, or entire wheat bread. But the
trouble is that so many people are weak
in their intestinal digestion and bread
and the starch-containing cereals are
not properly digested, thus produc
ing gas and bowel complaints, often
ending iu appendicitis or kindred dif-
liculties. Grape-Nuts food being prc-
digested mechanically before going
nto the human body it is ready for
quick and easy assimilation and peo
ple ol weak digestion can thus obtain
the full value from healthful and
most nourishing natural food. The
:tvor of Grape-Nuts is a delicious
sweet, that of true grape-sugar to be
seen glistening on the little particles.
This sugar is not added to them, but
is produced in the change from starch
to grape-sugar and evolved in the
processes. The famous food is sold
bv all lirst-elass grocers and made by
the Postum Cereal company, limited.

"Awful anxiety was felt for the

thought she must soon die from pneu
monia, but she begged for Dr. King s

her of consumption. After three

The comedy, "Dear Old Charley
to be presented at the Burtis for the
opening night tomorrow night, is said
to be clever enough to induce every
theatregoer to leave his or her home
for one evening at least to enjoy its
mirth and humor. It is written in
decidedly plausable and delightful
vein and is charmingly free from the
tints of vicious suggestiveness usually
found so necessary by the latter day
writers of farce. 1 tie stor' or "Dear
Old Charley is one that occurs in
everyday life and there is hardly a
gay bachelor in the city but can gain
some valuable tips from the predica
ments Charley gets himself into by
continuing the acquaintance after
marriage with shadows of his too
vivid past. Clean and wholesome in
i.s denouements are two ot the im
portant elements in the farce. The
company, besides Boniface and Ober,
includes the excellent comedienne,
Kathryn Ostcrnian. Bertha Waltzing-

James T. McAlpirl and his company

A dispatch from Springlield, Mo.,
says: "A bride of eight days is un

is Mrs. John B. Steckman. Prior to
Sept. l'J she was Miss Ruth Ward, of
Milan, 111. She was married there to
Mr. Steckman, and came immediately
to southwest Missouri with her hus
band, their intention lieing to secure
a tract of government land or buy a
cheap farm. Last Saturday Mrs.
Steckman hired a team from a Spring
lield liveryman, and failed to return
in half a day as agreed. The bride
was captured last night at Cassville,
M miles southwest of here. She had
driven the team there alone. It is
not known where her husband is."

Send-OfT for Head of Democratic National
On the editorial page of today's
Chicago Tribune, under the head of
"Who's Who and What's What."
there is the followiug reference to our
old friend and neighbor, J. G.John
son: "J. (i. Johnson, who has been
placed in charge of the Chicigo head
quarters of the democratic national
committee, is a 200-pound .Kansan,
who looks more like the manager of
some big business enterprise than a
politician. He tirst came into promi
nence in national politics in the cam
paign of lJS'.JU. He was by no means
a new hand at political work, how
ever, when he entered the light for
Bryan. For 20 years prior to that
time he had been a member of the
Kansas democratic state central com
mittee. The experience gained in
this position as the manager of an al
most hopeless tight against big odds
is expected to aid him in his present
work. As a political manager Mr.
Johnson has shown that he has a
great head for details. In the cam
paign of 189b he was the right hand
ol chairman Jones in looking alter
all the little thinrs that arise to
worry and perplex a political mana
ger. Mr. Johus.ii is a resident ot
Peabody, Kan., where he lias prac
ticed law for many years."
