I do not hesitate to say that in my judg ment, a large percentage of disease is caused by poorly selected and im properly prepared food. Mv personal experience with the ful!y-cobked food, known as Grape-Nuts, enables me to p-?ak freely of its merits. "From overwork, I suffered several years with malnutrition, palpitation of the heart, and loss of sleep. Last sum mer I was led to experiment person- f ally with the new food, which I used f In conjunction with goad rich cow's f milk. In a short time after I com ' menced its use, the disagreeable sym toma disappeared, my heart's -action became steady and normal, the func tions of the stomach were properly carried out and I again slept as sound s' j ly and as well as in my youth. "I look upon Grape-Nuts as a per i feet food, and no one can gainsay but ! that it has a most prominent place in 1 1 a rational, scientific system of feed i i ing; Any one who uses this food will i I soon be convinced of the soundness of ' i the principle upon which it is manu factured and may thereby know the i facts as to its true worth." Read, ' i "The Road to Wellville," in pkgs. ; i Xiiare:s a Reason." and Mr. De Wesse Colton Seewir of Kansas City. The wedding will take place in June.

EARL FLYNN'S STATEMENT. Majestic Singer Gives His Version of Trouble. Earl Flynn. who was arrested at the instigation of Roy Crawford of the Majestic theatw, charged with robbing one of the girls of $5 and a gold watch, denies that there is any truth in the story. Substantiating this statement he said: "In the first place I did not take any money from the cashier, but on the contrary she gave me a five dollar bill a3 it is customary for the employes to draw money through the week, and should have placed a debit slip in the money drawer in place of the money which I suppose that she did. "We had been good friends,- very good friends and I had been wearing her watch for some time, as she gave it to me for that purpose, but some thing came up which has been work ing for some time and Roy Crawford caused me all of this trouble." Westinghonse Captures Big Contract. New York, May 27. In the face of the keenest competition on the part of the foremost Italian, German and other European concerns, another important contract has been allotted to American electrical interests by the Italian gov ernment. The contract valued at about $3,000,000, was obtained by the West inghouse company and calls for the conversion from steam o electricity of the suburban state railway lines oper ating around Genoa. New York, May 27. A striking illus tration of the famine in all classes of tron material is shown by the importa tion ot several old smokestacks which came from Shakespeare's birthplace Stratford-on-Avon.

KIMOXA AYRAPPER. v V5F1 J'i h Air- -rip : The idea of inserting a little sheer material in some delicate color into an all-white gown is among the season's novelties, the model illustrated showing an excellent design for one of these, lingerie frocks. Inch-wide Val enciennes insertion was used, with edging to match, the yoke being of thin allover Valenciennes. The inset bands on the bodice, sleeves, and skirt were of very sheer mull, in a delicate, pale pink color. The bodice and skirt were Joined tcgether in princesse effect by lows of the Val. insertion.

The skirt and blouse is made in one piece, fitted at the waist. The right front laps over the left, finished with a wide Persian border, which is flatly sewed to the material. The sleeves are full and flowing, being gath ered at the. top and trimmed with the bordr-r. - The skirt also has the border al the bottom. Ribbon at the waist makes a dainty finish. Filtby Sink Hole on West Sixth Avenue a Thine of the Past. Mr. O. L. Hill, road overseer of Tq peka township, has just completed a piece of work that improves West Sixth avenue far out of proportion to the cost. This is the filling up of the old odoriferous mud hole just west of Ward's creek near the asylum grounds. This hole has been an unsightly place as well as a menace to health, and it has been filled up and the road im proved at a very small cost by Mr. Hill. To obtain the filling he cut down Washburn hill, thus killing two birds with one stone. Mr. Hill also hauled 400 loads of cinders from the asylum, which he dumped into the hole. m.

To promote the proper observance of this day and to prevent its desecration the last legislature passed the following law to which I desire to give wider publicity and which I hope it will be the pleasure of all our people to observe and which it is the duty of local auth orities throughout the state to enforce. " 'Section 1.
