May season in the stores and business
houses came to a close, and the even

most satisfactory seasons that Rock

years. A noticeable thing about the trade
this year was :ne advanced date on

The supreme court of Illinois yester
day handed down a decision disbarring
Arthur Keitnley of Peoria from prac
tice m the courts of the state. The
case is one in which considerable in
terest has been taken in central Illi
nois. Keithhley's undoing was the re
sult of a light made upon him by Eu
gene F. Baldwin, editor of the Peoria
Star, whose former partner Keithley
Keithley was accused of taking fees
from both parlies in a suit, inducing
his client to make a fraudulent settle
ment, whereby he made an exorbitant
profit with corresponding loss to his
client. The court characterizes him as
a "man in "whom the love of gain is :i
ruling passion. Under the domination
of this relentless power he stifled con
science, outraged justice, disgraced
himself, and brought reproach upon
the legal profession."

Too ereat attention cannot bo piven

families depends on this food. Are we

It is of Interest to note that there Is
at least one article of food about which
wc can know everything. This is
Malta-Vita, popularly called "The Per
fect Food," the pure, all-trrain prod
uct, in which every element of food
necessary to the proper nutrition of
the human body is found.
In the manufacture of Malta-V!ta
the whole of the wheat is thoroughly
cleaned, cooked in the purity of abso
lute cleanliness and then mixed with
the finest malt extract, made from spe
cially selected barley. The cooking and
steaming of the wheat gelatinizes the
starch, and the malt extract, a power
ful digestive agent, converts this starch
Into Maltose, or malt sugar, in which
Malta-Vita, is very rich. Maltose is of
great food value, sweetens the wheat
sufficiently to make unnecessary the
use of any foreign sweetening agent and
the weakest stomach digests and assim
ilates it without effort. Rolled into
wafer-like flakes and baked under In
tense heat, Malta-Vita comes from the
ovens crisp and brown, positively the
most delicious food in the. world. All
grocers. 10 cents.
