One of tho most indcfatlgnblo of all the big game hunters, and who had hunted Africa from one end to tho other, recently gave It as hlu -opinion that tho rhinoceros Is by far the most ' dangerous anlmnl that can be found in tho dark continent.

I do not mean waato of money; that cures Itself, because very soon there Is no money to waste but waste of material, waste of something that 13 useful but that you cannot rep resent In money valuo to tho waster. There Is wasto of water, wasto of gas and things of thnt kind. If you would wish your children to bo thrifty I would beg to Impress upon them tho criminality of waste. Lord Hosebery, In au Edinburgh Address. NO MEDICINE But a Change of Food Gave Relief. i Many persons nro learning that drugs nro not tho thing to rebuild worn out nerves, but proper food 3 required. There Is a certain cloment In tho cereals, wheat, barley, etc., which la grown there by nnturo for food to brain and nervo tissue. This is the phos phato of potash, of which Grape-Nuts food contains a largo proportion. In making this food all tho food ele ments In tho two cereals, wheat and barley, aro retained. That Is why so many heretofore nervous and run down people find In Grapo-Nut3 a true nervo and brain food.
