IT IS A COMMON MISTAKE
To Orer-Kat Grape-Nats.
Letters are coming from all over the
country saying that the writers have
been led to eat double or more than
double the allowance of Grapc-Xuta
because of the fascinating flavor.
Ttc result of overeating this food
is the same as in overeating candy,
or any other delicacy, the system gets
more than it requires, ami there fol
lows a spleening against it for a time.
Confine your allowance of Grape
Nuts tr three heaping tenspoous for
the cereal part of your meal, and the
food will be a daily delight to you.
If you have been overeating, try
Grape-Nuts in the proper quantity,
and. our word for it. you will stick to
them, nnd obtain day by day the val
uable elements or particles which na
ture uses to rebuild and nourish the
braiu anil nervous centers all over
the body. A definite feeling of
strength and reserve power comes
with the use of this food. Have the
cook dry it in a pan in the oven if it
has leen expo.-ed to. and gathered
moisture from, the air. Urape-Nats
should be crisp and brittle.

TOO MANY HIVE ESCAPED.
Creatine a Feeling of I'nreat Not Only

iosity Seekers Should Be Denied Admit
tance to the Institution.
The escape of Tom Coggins from
the Watertowu asylum and the sub
sequent development that his feet
were frozen during his rambling, com
ing so close upon the reported escape
from that institution of other patients,
has created a feeling of unrest here, a
feeling that natural'y prevails in a
keener degive in the immediate vicin
ity of the hospital, and suggests not
only the advisability but the necessity
of ihe enforcement of stricter safe
guards to restrain those confined.
As is known, not long since-a pa
tient escaped and was killed by a rail
road train. It is due not only to the
patients to preserve them from hard
ship and cruelty, but to the people at
large that those who are S3 detained
because of misfortune that ha
rendered them irresponsible should
be properly restrained.
In this connection the suggestion
mirht be made. too. that a rule sbou
be made to apply not only at Wate
Inwn tint t o hII similar i n h! i til t inin i
Illinois, to place limitations on the
extent to which those who are apt
vi-it such institutions out of mere
curiosity, are permitted to grati
their morbid natures.

An asylum ought to be sacred, am
while, like other institutions, main

a busy and profitable day yesterday
From the fact they held threo meet
"nigs, one at tbe plow shop in the
lower end of thecttv, besides the at

Invitation came early in the week to
hold service for the benefit of the 600
employes at the shop mid yesterday
it took definite form. As soon as the
men began to return from their homes
from tiinner the evangelists, occupy
ing a raised platform in the great
blacksmith shop, began to sing "I'ha't
Wonderful City." Rev. Kerr then
gave the men a talk full of the gospel
of repentance, conversion and tyrant

sang again, the selection being "My
Mother is Praying for Me." No more
attentive or appreciative audience has
listened to the songs and sermons of
the evangelists since tbey came to our
ciiy tuati the hundreds arranged pro
miscuously around them yesterday.
Jn the evening the largest congfe
gaiion vet present since the Sabbath
assembled to heai a mightv sermon
from the lips of Rev. Kerr. The ser

ist, "for mou, joru, nast made mo
glad through Thy work; I will tri
