Large Block of Her Land Taken Into South Dakota. Jackson, Neb., June 23. An armed band of 52 men from South Dakota has cut a channel through Rininger's Neck, or as It is known on the maps, Bruin her's Bend in the Missouri river. There is great excitement over the matter here. The bend is some 25 miles around and not more than a quarter of a mile across its neck. This neck is low land, covered with willows and small timber. At one time probably the channel of the river ran across it. Residents of the bottoms along the river, east of Elk Point, have always contended that if a channel could be cut through the neck and the river Unnecessary Loss of Time. Mr. W. S.

Chicago, June 23. A special to the Record from New York says: "I can look the situation squarely in the face," said" Governor Roosevelt this afternoon. "I haven't got a big head or a sore head. Ther&'s nothing1 the matter with me whatever. But the ac tion of the convention does not alter my judgment. I feel very much flat tered, of course, but profoundly regret that I have been nominated. I feel that I am the wrong man. I'm not suited to the office. I still believe that I would be of more service to my coun try and my party as governor of New York and as a candidate for re-election to that office. I have felt so all the time, and the action of the conven tion has not changed my mind an iota. realie that a tremendous honor has been conferred upon me and am corre spondingly grateful, but it isn't an honor I ever aspire to. The vice pres idency is the last office in, the world that I would ever seek. A man of my temperament should be given a field of activity, but if elected and I am perfectly confident of the success of the ticket I shall no doubt find some use ful way to work off the surplus eenrgy concerning which both my friends and opponents have often complained. I am deeply moved by the devotion and confidence ttiat has been shown toward me. I cannot tell you how grateful and how proud I am, and that is full com pensation for the sacrifice I am mak ing. Nobody knows but myself how great that sacrifice is. 'New York s all right. You needn t worry about New York. The Demo crats will do all the fretting, and we will give them enough to fret about from now to November. "My plans? I have no plans. I had plans, but today they are all knocked in the head, but I will be governed by the wishes of the national committee from this time on; I expect to go down to Oklahoma City the first of next month to attend a rough riders' re union. I wouldn't miss that for the world, but it's the only fixed engage ment on my list at present. I suppose they will send me out on campaign tours and I shall be delighted to go, but that is a matter for future consid eration. I've a lot of important mat ters awaiting me at Albany and want to get back there as soon as I can." 4Mf- it r -tc K REDUCING THE FORCE.

With least labor and trouble it makes hot breads, biscuit and cake of finest flavor, light, sweet, appe tizing, digestible and wholesome. Do n'ot permit the grocer or peddler to substitute any other brand in place of the Royal. Some baking powders are claimed to be cheaper They can be cheaper only if made from cheaper ma terials. "Cheaper" means inferior. To cheapen the cost of an article of food at the expense of its health fulness, as is done in alum baking powders, is a crime.

In the course of an enthu- siastic reference to the American ex hibit at the exposition he said it was greater than the republic had expected, and added that beyond all the commer cial benefits of the exposition were the grand results attained in good will and accord by the social intercourse of the representatives of all nations. Gen eral Porter, who interpreted the presi dent's remarks, which were spoken in French, added feelingly that the com missioners had been appointed by the president of the United States to act as his representatives, and that they felt honored in thus being received by the president of the French republic. M. Loubet then invited all present to attend all the fetes and functions oc curring at the Elysee during their stay in Paris.

An artist living in a New York studio writes regarding the advantage of a proper selection of healthful food. He say3s "Some time ago a sister who had been ill, wrote me of the good she had obtained from the use of Grape-Nuts food two meals a day and that all the family made great use of the food. She recommended it very strongly to me. "I had up to that time supposed this was a luxury and had not tried it, but I sent for some and for quite a little time, depended largely on Grape-Nuts, with a surprising result. I have largely lost my taste for meat and am unusually strong, walking a long distance daily, which for some years has been almost impossible. "I live in a studio and have neither time nor room to cook, therefore the Grape-Nuts being ready cooked, come in as an especial boon and I felt I must thank you. "The Postum Cereal Coffee I have used a long time, and if that comes from you, it must come in for a share of thanks also," Ada A. Brewster, 204 W. 100th St., New York City. IN PLAIN LANGUAGE. Quigg Says Grosvenor Hakes False Statements. New York, June 23. Lemuel E. Quigg, the New York member of the committee on resolutions of the convention at Philadelphia, in reference to a state ment of General C. H. Grosvenor of Ohio, which was called to his attention in effect that certain language had been agreed upon by the subcommittee of which Mr. Quigg was secretary, tonight gave out the following: "General Grosvernor's statement that something was surreptitiously omitted from the platform which was under stood by the committee to be a part of the platform," is untrue. He states he makes that statement upon the authori ty of Senator Foraker but that is im possible. The platform was the work of the subcommittee of the committee on resolutions and every member of that subcommittee contributed to the work of making the platform and on every point and every plank the subcommittee wa3 unanimous. It was also unan imous on all matters suggested but omitted. It is true that a document was read to the subcommittee by Senator Foraker that contained the language General Grosvernor quotes. That docu ment had been prepared in Washing ton but the committee considered that it was much too long and much resem bled a political essay. The points made in that document, however, were fully discussed at a session of nearly five hours duration. At the end of the ses sion I was elected secretary of the sub committee and required to put together the planks upon which the agreement had been reached. "I did this and the committee met again at 1 o'clock on Wednesday morn ing and went over what I had .written, word for word. My draft was altered in many details and every such altera tion received the approval or every member of the subcommittee. - We then took up other planks of minor impor tance, and after full discussion con elusions were reached as to each of them and I was requested to make draft of the minor planks. I worked on that the rest of the night and at o'clock Senator Fairbanks came to my room, .together we went over the com pleted platform from the first word to the last. The subcommittee met agai at 9 o'clock and the document, with such changes as Mr. Fairbanks had suggested, was read in full. "The language of the two planks to which General Grosvenor refers was then precisely in the form In which it '-'S'-l was read to the convention that after noon. The subcommittee had consider ed just how far it would go in the di rection of giving countenance to sub sidies to the shipping interests and the anguage adopted was its deliberate and final judgment. As to the statement that congress has full legislative power over the terri tory belonging to the United States, ubiect only to the fundamental safe guards of liberty, justice and personal rights, the committee considered that inasmuch as this question was now be fore, the United States supreme court, it was neither advisable nor necessary to run the risk of getting our platform into a controversy with the supreme court. 'Mr. Grosvenor says that 'it was agreed and understood that the planks,' as he states them, should be a part or the platform." There was no such agreement or understanding in the com mittee on resolutions or in its subcom mittee. In writing the platform, I em ployed the language of the document Senator Foraker had read to us in so far as it was consistent with the decis ions at which the subcommittee had ar rived, but when Mr. Grosvenor says that anything, no matter what, was agreed upon by the subcommittee and afterward omitted, he says that which is ebsolutely false." THE NEW LINE. Opening of the Santa Fe Line to San Francisco. The newlv completed extension of the Santa Fe Route through the San Joa quin valley to San rancisco win De opened for passenger business on July 1900. The Atchison, Topeka & Santa Fe railway has heretofore possessed the distinction of being the only line with its own track and trains all the way from Chicago to Los Angeles and San Diego. San Francisco and the import ant cities of the San Joaquin Valley are now added to the vast territory served by this great transportation system un der one management, which territory also includes a large part of the region between Denver on the north, and Gal veston on the south. Stress is laid upon single ownership and management, which insure uniform excellence of service. Overland trains by this route do not miss connection, because they run through. The eating house and dining car service is of the same superior quality throughout, under management of Mr. Fred Harvey. The best equipment is provided. Employes are everywhere solicitous and courteous. Responsibility for the comfort of pas sengers is not divided. No other transcontinental route offers so great a number of attractions to the tourist. Among these are mountain alti tude and scenery. extinct colcanoes, pet rified forests, prehistoric ruins, Indian pueblos, the Yosemite, and the Grand Canon of Arizona, which is the greatest scenic wonder of the world. Every char acteristic phase of industrial life in the west is traversed en route. The Santa Fe has long been the favor ite route between the east and southern California. By virtue of the same high grade service and unexcelled attractions it hopes to win equal favor with travel ers to and from San Francisco and in termediate cities of the Golden State. The service will consist at first of Pullman and tourist sleepers and chair cars daily. The early resumption of the California Limited is contemplated. Glorious News. Comes from Dr. D. B.
