A Becord After I'aina; Different Foods.
J Henry M vers, of Otsego, Mich.,
a traveling representative of a certs in
medical missionary association, made
some strength tests with different
foods., with the following results:
"In 1897 I became officially connected
with an institution manufacturing a
large line ef health foods.
My det-ire was to add strength. I
wis in good health, and faithfully
lived, almost entirely for nearly two
years on their foods, and believed in
them thoroughly. Ia January, '08,
my strength lent showed 5,700 pounds,
in January, '99, by the same machine,
my streDgth test was only 4,56 J
pounds, a beavy falling off, notwith
standing I had not been sick, but had
faithfully and reliiouslv nsed the
foods I so fullv believed in and had
be n hired to lecture for and advo
For a month after that test I was
uncertain what to do. I felt weak.
and what I wanted was strength; so
in Febraary of that year I quit all
other health foods and began using
G ape-Nuts alone. My weight now
nas increased from 130 to 143 pounds;
my strength has increased from 4 560
pounds to 5,940 and I am now 1,609
I ounds stronger, by actual test, tnan
the average man. My eyesight is
clearer, my mind more active and
stronger, and I can endure more
labor, physical and mental, than ever

Mr. Myers letter gives the name in

called health foods, which failed in his

NEW ' SOCIETY'S GROWTH.
Fraternal Tribunes Baa Over 95,000,000
Insurance la Force.
The February number of the Fra
ternal'Mbnitor" published at Roches
ter, jN. Y., contains the following
item of local interest:
"The progress of the Fraternal
Tribunes of Rock Island, HI., has been
such the past year as to fully justify
the wisdom of the supreme officers in
keeping the society free from the en
tanglements of cheap rates, since from
Its inception in 1897 the work has
been carried on upon the plan of mak
ing regular monthly assessments and
creating an emergency fund by set
ting aside 10 per cent, of all mortuary
collections. At first the Tribunes had
sick benefit department, but during
the past year it was deemed wise, for
tbe best interests of tbe society, to
discontinue membership in this class,
and now the only bene tits given are
for death and partial and total dis
"During lauu the amount of fz.-
071,000 new insurance was placed
upon the books or in) supreme tri
bunal, makln? a total of 15,044 000
insurance in force Jan 1, 1901. The
average age of the whole membership
was reduced to So years.
"The year was one of great activity
in Illinois, and the membership was
kept constantly informed as to the
progress of events through the medi
um of their official organ, the Frater
nal Tribune, under the editorship of
Robert Kexdaie. lie is also the su
preme lecturer of the society and has
charge of tbe field work. The Janu
ary issue of the paper is especially
interesting in its reports of public
meetings, installation, banquets, in
itiations of candidates, etc,, in so
many parts of the jurisdiction.
I be craternal .tribunes in tnrce
years has paid 65. 431.41 to .benefi
ciaries. The" society has refined ritu
alistic work and admits both ladies
and gentlemen to membership. In
the work of initiation the beauty of
the ceremony is greatly enhanced by
a ladies drill team and tableaux rep
resenting tbe seven cardinal virtues
of the society."
AN EXPOSITION BOOKLET.
Another Beautiful Production From the
Boreso of Publicity of the Pan
American at Buffalo.
Here comes another of the beautiful
booklets from the Bureau of Pnblicity
of the Pan-American Exposition, Buf
falo, N. Y. It consis a of 16 pages
and a cover in light green. The
unique feature of it is the miniature
reproduction of the famous poster,
"The Spirit of Niagara. which has
had a most remarkable demand. The
envelope in which the poster booklet
is mailed also bears a reproduction of
this artistic work. The booklet is a
popular picture book, the first page
having an engraving of the magnifi
cent electric tower, which is 391 feet
high, and which will-forni tho glori
ous center piece of tho great exposi
tion. On the same page is a minia
ture of one of the torch-bearers which
will adorn the wings of tbe electric
tower, and beside it a picture of Ni
agara Falls. The second ptge shows
a picture of the electricity buildiDg
and live other small illustrations of
the uses of electricity. The third
page shows the. splendid group ef
buildings erected by tho national gov
ernment which will contain the gov
ernment exhibits, also five miniature
illustrations, one of them showing the
life saving station, where exhibitions
will be given daily by a picked crew
of ten men, during the exposition.
Tbe fourth page is devoUd to the
wonderful displays of government
ordnance; the fifth to tho machinery
and transportation building and four
other illustrations of modern ma
chines and vehicles. The center of
the booklet shows a birdseye view of
the exposition, and gives "one some
idea of the great extent of the enter
prise upon which about $10,000.
000 is beirg expended. The
grounds contain 850 acres, being
half a mile wide and a mile and a
quarter long. . Other pages show hor
ticulture, graphic arts and mines,
manufactures and liberal arts, tbe
music templo, tho plaza and its beau
tiful sourroundings. the stadiom or
athletic field, the agricultural live
slock and ethnology features, and n
few of the 30 or 40 ingenious and
novel exhibits which promise ti make
the Midway the most wonderful that
has ever been prepared for exposition
visitors- Tho last page snows a
ground plan of the exposition, where
on the location of different buildings is
indicated. The railroads will make low
rates from all parts of the country
during ths exposition, which opens
May 1 and continues six months, and
the people of Buffalo are preparing to
entertain comfortably the millions
who will attend. Any one desiring a
copy of this booklet may have it free
by addressing the Pan-American
Bureau of Publicity.
The vcteral editor of the Golden
(Colo.) Transcript, who hates n liar as
be. hates a delinquent subscriber, and
who uses only tbe old reliable George
Washington brand of truth In his
business, fathers this strange story:
"A Larimer county farmer lost a
cow In a very queer manner last week.
Tbe animal in rummaging through a
summer kitchen found and swallowed
an old umbrella and a enke of yeast.
The yeast, fermenting in the poor
beast's stomaeh, raised the umbrella,
and she died In great agony." Denver
