The group of nuram lounging on the park bench saw only five \ car old Tommy Make and four-year old Marjorie lampoon, playing v Ith a rery big and very friendly collie. But Tommy, the champion, knew better. He knew the dragon would surely swallow Marjorie or drag her away to Its lair, unless her defender could frighten away the monster with his sword.

At once—even before the stream of hla horrified nurse reached his ears—he ceased to be a victorious warrior and became a wry badly scared little boy. He readied that his new silk suit *a« ruined by *.’ie mud—that hl« mother had warned him to be care ful lo keep out of the dirt —and that he was probably in for a whipping ■Wherefore, he howled dismally.

That was why. a» this monieut. she was engaged in preparing at address which she expected to rend two nights later before the Barents’ club In her big library she sat placidly acrlbbling • th« preamble of her speech: "I did not come prepared to speak this evening,” she wrote, laboriously, •'hut the training of children b a subject to which I have gi\«n ” A shutting door, a sound of weejK Ing. the hurry of footsteps checked her flow of Inspiration She laid down her pen and turned with a The Growing Tendency of the Age— A noted English scientist asserts the tendency is toward “neurasthenia, ‘nerves/ etc/’ A remarkable statement! No less remarkable is the cause which, he adds, “is not unlikely due to remov ing from our diet those elements of cereal food which Nature has hid in the husk of the grain, and which man in his ignorance discards.'’ The elements to which he refers are the well-known mineral salts of phosphor us, lime, iron, etc., removed in milling flour to make it white, but which physicians know are indispensable to normal, well-balanced nerves, bodies and brains. Grape - Nuts —a wonderfully delicious food made from whole wheat and malted barley, retains the nutriment of the grains, * including their Vital Mineral Elements Grape-Nuts food is easy to digest, highly nourishing, and comes ready to eat from the sealed package, which preserves its oven-crispness and delightful flavor.

On the threshold appealed the nurse half leading, half drugging the tearful and muddy child At sight of the havoc wrought on Tern's new suit Mrs. Blake tried in sudden loss of temper: "You bad, bad hoy!
