Washington, Oct. s.—ln the Schley naval sourt of inquiry Mr. Rayner. chief of coun lel for Admiral Schley, asked Judge Ad rocate Lemly to summon Admiral Samp ion as a witness In the case. .-• The request grew out of a difference in (he construction of a sentence in Admiral Sampson's letter to Commodore Schley; written from Key West, May 20, while Commodore Schley, with the flying squad (on, lay off Clenfuegos. This is known as the "Dear Schley" letter, and it. was printed in the navy department documents Supplied to the senate. The admiral said, after expressing his opinion that, notwithstanding the report that the Spanish squadron was in Santia go, it were better to continue to blockade Clenfuegos and Havana, "We shall con tinue to hold Havana and Santiago until we receive more positive information." During the examination of Commander Raymond P. Rodgers this dispatch was under consideration, when Mr. Rayner ex pressed the opinion that the word Santia go had been inadvertently used by the commander-in-chlef, assuming that be meant to use the word Clenfuegos as bet ter corresponding with the context. As the document was printed there was a parenthetical note, to which Admiral Schley's initials were, attached, saying that evidently the wrong city had been mentioned. Mr. Rayner asked Judge Advocate Lem ly to make this concession, but" the latter declined to do so, saying he would pro duce the original of Admiral Sampson' 3 dispatch to prove that he had said San tiago. Then Mr. Rayner said: "I cannot take that word Santiago to mean anything but Cienfuegos. It is an Imputation upon Commodore Schley, and I cannot permit it to re3t without summon ing the author of that dispatch." To which Captain Lemly responded: "I have told you once before you can summon any one you please." "Then," replied Mr. Rayner, "summon Admiral Sampson." INDIAN LANDS How Commissioner Jones Would Dispose of a Vex atious Question. From The Journal Bureau. Jtoom 45, Fowl J&uililinu. Wutliinatttiu Washington, Oct. s.—As a preliminary to the settlement of the vexed Indian problem in Minnesota, Commissioner of .Indian Affairs Jones says he is in favor of the allottment of lands on unceded reser vations and the disposal of the remainder under the general land laws. He so ex pressed himself in discussing the proposi tion made some time ago by Congress man Eddy to have an inspector negotiate a treaty for the opening of a few town ■hips in the Red Lake reservation. While in the northwest he went over these townships and says there is some fine land there that can be cultivated by the •whites, but which will probably be non productive so long as it remains in the hands of the Indians. Commissioner Jones has recommended the opening of the remainder of the agri cultural lands in the ceded Chippewa res ervations under the Nelson act. There has been no scandal in connection with the disposal of these lands. Surveys have toeeri -completed, thus making them sub ject to disposal. So far as timiber lands ere concerned, neither the Indian office nor department will take any action until congress shall have had an opportunity to amend the Nelson law and provide for their disposal under the revised regula tions providing for the cutting of timber •an-d its sale, according to bank scale. Commissioner Jones will take up the question of the settlement of the dead and down controversy with Secretary Hitchcock next week. He expects it will take some time for the secretary to arrive at a conclusion and says that no facts In connection with the investigation of the rescale will be made public for a week or more. —W. W.

Scott's safe at Prairie Farm, Wis., were arraigned here to-day and waived examination. They gave their names as William Wall and Charles Shields. Both have a tough look and the way they did the job would Indi cate that they were old hands. Nitro glycerin was used. Some of the paper money end papers in the safe were torn Into small fragments. After securing their booty the robbers walked seventeen miles to Wheeler. When they were ar rested they were out from Wheeler a short - -distance at a farmhouse eating break fast, and although armed with two large revolvers and about fifty rounds of cart ridges, they offered no resistance. The paper money was found, but about $250 in gold is still missing. The robbers claim this was given to three other mem bers of the gang, but it is believed they fcuried it. About $4,000 in notes belong ing In large part to the McCormick Har vester company, which Mr. Scott had for collection, and $600 in checks, are also missing.

IT WAS TONED DOWN Governor Shaw's Campaign Ad dress at Boone, lowa. HEADQUARTERS TOOK A HAND Executive Was Fain to Defend Ilia Own Conme and Run Coun ter to Cumiuim. Special to The Journal. Dcs Moines, lowa, Oct. s.—Governor Shaw addressed a lar^e meeting at Boone last night, devoting his time mainly to state issues and railway assesmenU. The address was a modified form of the original ono written by the governor in which by inference there were bitter de nunciations of» Cummins and Herriott. As soon as the sensational nature of the governor's utterances became known to the republican state headquarters, the governor was compelled to soften down his statements. Otherwise the committee threatened to call the Boone meeting off. Governor Shaw was led to the attack oa the positions of Cummins and Herriott by a desire to defend his own course in the executive council in fixing the present railway assessment. His modified address contained nothing to which the committee did not assent. He said in part: It has never been my custom to refer to candidates. 1 do not remember having men tioned my opponent's name during either campaign when 1 had the honor of first placo on the republican state ticket of lowa. I have never mentioned the democratic nomi nee for the presidency in national campaigns, except in the most kind and courteous terms. In short, I have never advocated men, nor opposed candidates. I have always fought for political prin ciples. 1 have both advocated and defended the policies of the republican party, in which I intensely believe. 1 have defended the record made by the republican party, of which I have always been proud. But 1 no tice an effort is being made by certain in dependent papers to make it appear that my ! support of the ticket this year is nominal j rather than real. 1 had supposed and still believe that every true friend of the nomi- nees of the republican party would empha size the unanimity with which the ticket is being supported, and most heartily sup ported, by republicans of the state, rather than create the inference that there is covert opposition. I have no fears that the distin guished gentlemen who have been nominated will be misled thereby. 1 hope their friends will not be. Lest there be some misunderstanding, let me say here and now, once and for all, that no man ever supported his successor more heartily or more unreservedly than I am doing, and no man in lowa will be truer to the gentlemen elected in November than will I. Xone of them will ever find a thorn in : their pathway from seed scattered by my hand. I do not need to say that the candidate , for governor on the republican ticket is an able and sincere gentleman. You all know he is. I do not need to say that the candi date for lieutenant governor is one whose in tegrity is not questioned by any citizen of lowa. Nor need I go through the ticket state, district, county and township—and saw ■ good words for each. A republican nomination is enough to en title any man to the support of his party. The | fact that he believes in and advocates the I principle! of the republican party and con j tributes by his influence to the success of ! the party in nation and state, makes him ny ] all comparisons more entitled to support than any nominee of the party whose record, time out of mind, has been one of opposition and objection. Political principles are bigger than men. I am a republican from principle, but it gives me pleasure at this time to say that the republican nominees are in each and every instance so able, so clean, so honor able, that I tender them my fealty unre servedly. The opening date for John Herriott, candidate for lieutenant governor, and | ex-treasurer of state, has been fixed for ■ Oct.- 11 at Marengo. He is expected to i assail present methods of railway as- I sessment. FUEL FEOM STRAW Edison Says the Process Is Now Beyond Experimental Stage. McCANNA, N. D., PLANT TO START Farmer* Will Hriiiu Straw and Ex iliiinnc It fur Fuel on Old Grlttt Mill Plan. Special to The Journal Grand Forks, N. D., Oct. 5. —S. 0. Ed ison has returned from Orange, N. J., where he spent the summer, and is making preparations to start up his fiber fuel plant at McCanna at an early date. The manufacture of fuel from straw, Mr. Edi son thinks, is now beyond the experi mental stage, and while not enough was manufactured last season upon which to base figures as to the cost of production, he is certain the cost will be low enough to make the fuel as cheap as any other and perhaps much cheaper. The plant will be started in a few weeks and as the supply of straw this year is unlimited, it is expected that fiber fuel will soon be manufactured in large quan tities when tests will be made oh a larger scp-e than in the past. The process is very simple. The straw is first boiled thoroughly, after which it is put through a grinder and compressed into tubes about four inches in diameter, which can be cut into desired lengths. The fiber fuel is ready for use when it comes from the ma chine, though it is not absolutely dry, as it is impossible to get all the water out by pressure alone. The cut straw is com pressed by means of a worm, and there lore it is not known how great the pres sure is, but It is very gre*at. The plant erected at McCanna has a ca pacity of about forty tons of the fiber a day, and when running on full time will employ twenty-five men. As soon as all the details have been completed, and the process of manufacture perfected in every way, It is the intention to erect plants in all parts of the northwest. The farmers will then haul in their Btraw and ex change it for the fiber much the same as on the old grist mill plan. Mr. Edison has been working on the scheme for several years and believes it to be one of the biggest things for this country that was ever attempted. KILLED BYJjS HORSES Old Resident of Fergus County, Mont., Crashed to Death. Special to The Journal. Lewistown, Mont., Oct. s.—Paul Wey dert, an old timer and widely known resi dent of Fergus county, was killed last evening while unhitching a team of horses at his ranch two miles west of this city. There were no witnesses to the affair, but it is suppose.-! that when he unhitched the horses he left one of the traces fas tened to the singletree and- when he start ed leading the animals to the barn, they became frightened and jumped forward, pulling him down under the wheels of the wagon. Britain's Great Deficit. London, Oct. s.—Sir Michael Hicks-Beach, chancellor .of the exchequer, denies that parliam°nt will meet this autumn to provide more money for the prosecution of the war In South Africa. Nevertheless at the present rate of expenditure the deficit for the fiscal year will be £G9,742,000, while the sixty mil lions of new consols, with which it was ex pected to meet the deficit, realized at 94% £56,700,000, leaving a net deficit, which must be provided for by fresh appropriations' of £13.000,000. Sir Michael doubtless considers that prompt action by parliament In Janu ary will take care of the deficit. Eoeema- No Core No Pay.

FIVE NEW BISHOPS Forthcoming Elections by the Epis copalians. ONE FOR NO. DAKOTA INCLUDED Two New Missionary DUtrlct* With Missionary Btahopa to Be Created. San Francisco, Oct. s.—Five new bish ops may lit chosen at the present tri ennial congress of the Episcopal church. A bishop must be elected for the mission ary diocese of Olympia, Wash., to take the place of Rev. Dr. Barker, who died re cently. Rev. Dr. Clarmpett's name and personality are prominently mentioned i for the v'ace. a bishop must be elected ! for the missionary diocese of North Da kota, to take the place of the Rt. Rev. Dr. Edsell, now bishop of Minnesota. A clergyman elevated to fill this bishopric will more than likely be chosen from the uqrthwestern field. There also will be a bishop provided for Porto Rico and an other for the Philippines. A bishop may also be appointed for Hawaii. And here i again a well denned, popular and effl- I cient western clergyman may be chosen, though the east may be the recruiting field. The advisability of appointing a bishop for Hawaii will be one of the crit ical questions and the principal problems of the present convention. In addition to the discussion of creat ing or filling some or all of these five bishoprics by election at this convention there are possibilities that two new mis sionary jurisdictions with missionary bishops may be created in the United States. One would be in central Illinois and the other a part of Kansas. The house of bishops has received petitions calling for divisions of territory to create these two jurisdictions. Each diocese requests that a part be cut off of tts territory and made into a missionary jurisdiction. This plan is to relieve the present diocese in jeach case from supporting the church work jin the proposed new districts, all mis sionary jurisdiction being maintained from the general fund. Next Convention. Yesterday's deliberations were devoted mainly to the missionary field and were of much interest. A resolution was adopted to adjourn the convention sine die on Thursday, Oct. 17. Petitions from representative cities anx ious to secure the next triennial meeting were presented in behalf of Plttsburg, Boston, Cincinnati, Louisville and New Orleans. No action was taken, but on, j motion of J. Pierpont Morgan a com mittee was appointed ta decide where the next convention shall be held. The house of bishops decided to take up the consideration of the constitution as soon as it shall be acted upon by the house of deputies. The house of deputies decided to take up the matter of marginal readings, which Thursday was passed on by the bishops, as soon as it had finished the constitution, which it is now consid ering. The proposed canon on marriage and divorce will be considered nexti When the time came for calling to order the board of missions there was scarcely standing room in the auditorium of the church. The deputies remained standing while the bishops marched down the cen ter aisles and were given seats of honor. President Lindsay relinquished the gavel to the venerable Bishop Tuttle of Missouri, and the order of business was read by Bishop Brewster. Bishop Doane of Albany presented the annual report of the managers, signed by himself, W. R. Huntington, H. R. Nelson A. T. Mahan, W. W. Frazier and General Secretary A. S. Lloyd. It proved to be an exhaustive review of the missionary work, domestic and foreign, accomplished in the last three years, and shows that much had been accomplished in every field of labor. Although the financial statement re vealed a deficit of $102,719 this has been temporarily covered by drawing on the reserve fund. The statement that provi sion must be made for accruing liabilities, work in China t Cuba and the new posses sions of the United States, Porto Rico and the Philippines, was given special promi nence in the report, which was referred to a special committee. The reports of the women's auxiliary and other missionary boards were also re ferred, after which General Secretary Lloyd delivered a missionary address which was impressive in its earnest elo quence.

Olson, a prominent farmer of this vicinity, was in stantly killed last evening by a runaway team while returning home in company with one of his neighbors. He leaves a wife and several children. Grain Trust Man Punished Mmw York Sun Spaclal Sifv/ca La Crosse, Kas., Oct. 5.— E. J. Smiley of Topeka, secretary of the Kansas Grain | Dealers association (grain trust), was fined $500 and sentenced to three months in J jail for violating the state anti-trust law. An appeal was taken. The information I sworn to by Henry Aherns, the prosecuting witness, charges. Smiley with entering in j to an agreement, contract and combination with grain dealers in Bison, Rush county, to pool and fix prices, dividend the earnings and to prevent competition among the grain buyers. It was shown that all the Bison grain buyers who went into the scheme were to get an equal division of grain purchased. If four men were buying 6,000 bushels a day each man was to have 1,000 and if any one bought more than his [share the surplus was to go to his competitors. They were to buy on a one-cent margin. A report was sent to E. J. Smiley every Saturday night of the week's busi ness. This is the scheme under which the trusts operate in every town in Kansas. The state railroad board ha 3 been after it for two years, but has not been able to break it up. The conviction of Smiley is the first successful move made against the combine. New Plan to Protect Public Domain Mow York Sun Soaolal Sorvlca Washington, Oct. 5.—A western member of congress who is a strong supporter of proposed legislation for irrigating artd lands makes this interesting statement of a project for the better protection vt the public domain in Western states that is now under consideration: The destruction of the forage on the stock ranges on the public do main ia an economic subject of vast importance. The grazing of cattle the year 1 round.has had the effect of stripping the ground of Its vegetation, the aridiay has increased and springs have dried up. Water courses that used to have an even flow the year round are torrents when it rains and then dry up sometlmse for months. This stripping of the ranges by making the country drier is every year reducing its possibility for agricultural settlement. There is widespread feeling by people of the west that this destruction of the ranges should cease; that stockmen who use them should be compelled to lease from the government and pay rent for the use, and that the rent be held in trust in the federal treasury, to be returned to the states and territories where it is derived when they are prepared to properly apply it to irrigation. This will relieve the river and harbor bill of propostions to load it down with appropriations for irrigation for the west, will be making the stockmen pay, as they should, for public property they use and will be devoting an existing public asset to the extension of fertility in the west by applying the Cental to irrigation. It is estimated by the executive departments in Washington that the rentals thus de rived for leasing the public property now used for nothing wil yield fully 110,000,000 per annum.

He declared that if the officers in the army would work as hard for the sobriety of the soldier as they were working for the bringing back of the canteen, the material and moral condition of the, regular army man would be improved. Dr. Robert Forbes addressed the confer ence Epworth League rally in the evening. His subject was the "Epworth League Idea." He spoke of the danger of the young people's a|plety dividing the church into young and old ancr that there was • nothing that ttip young people could do as Epworth Leaguers that they could not do as members of the church. He wanted to be understood as in favor of young people's societies, but he deplored the increasing number of organizations in the churches. He then showed the sinfulness of the race and the work of the League was to raise it into a Christlike nature. Dr. Hcluiiß Transferred to lowa. Dr. R. N. McKaig, who was pastor oil Simpson church, Minneapolis, has been transferred to First church, Sioux City, a better church than the one he has left.

Washington, Oct. 6.—ln the investiga tion by the senate military affairs committee of charges against Colonel H. 0. S. Heistand, General W. W. Dudley, one of the promoters of the proposed com pany and an attorney in the settlement made with Hawkes, described the prelim inary steps taken in the organization of the company. He said that Heistand had mentioned the names of General Corbin, Assistant Secretary Meiklejohn and As sistant Secretary Allen as friends of his who would take stock in the enterprise, and Major Hawkes had mentioned the name of Judge Boyd, who would also go into the company. The stock, he said, was to be apportioned as heretofore explained by other witnesses. General Dudley said the propriety of Colonel Helstand's connection with the proposed company was discussed and both he and his partper, Colonel Michener, re garded it is perfectly proper. No intima tion ever had been made in his hearing that the tariff was to be manipulated in favor of the proposed company. General Dudley said that his recommendation that Hawkes be given an appointment waa not a part of the conditions of settlement, although he would have not signed such a recommendation had there been no settlement. Alfred De Buys, vice president of Flint, Eddy & Co. of New York, related hia recollection of interviews with Major Hawkes concerning the proposed hemp company. Major Hawkes represented to the company that he had influential friends in Washington who would help him, anl witness Thought Hakwes men tioned the names of General Corbin and Assistant Secretary Meiklejohn, and posi tively that of Assistant Secretary Allen. Mr. De Buys said that his firm decided not to take up the enterprise. Major Hawkes was recalled to the stand and said that he had received a letter from Colonel Heistand containing information concerning the closing of certain Manila ports. He could not produce the letter, but said he had shown it to Mr.-JDe Buys, who had told him that if he had given his firm the information the letter con tained earlier it would have been worth $50,000. De Buys said also that if Hawkes would undertake to furnish his firm in formation in advance as to the opening of Philippine ports the firm would give him $5,000. Major Hawkes said that he obtained and furnished the information to Flint, Eddy & Co. Mr. De Buys took the stand and denied these statements of Hawkes' rotative to the offering of money for information con cerning the opening and closing of ports in the Philippines. Charles W. Allen, former governor gen eral of Portb Rico, was a witness to-day. He declared in th-e most emphatic manner that he had never had any connection with the proposed hemp company. He added that he hid not taken and not been asked to take any stock in such company or combination. He also asserted that in no circumstances would he have taken stock or engaged in any such business. This testimony contradicted that ,of Colonel Heistand, who had said that he (Hei stand) had aproached Assistant Secretary Allen and asked him to take stock and tnat Allen had eaid he would if it was all right. Governor Allen said he had no recollection whatever at such a conversa tion with Heistand on that subject. Governor Allen said that his first recol lection of the proposed hemp combination was a telephone message to the effect that his name was being used In New York in connection with it. Investigation showed that Hawkes was using his name upon the authority of Colonel Heistand. Governor Allen at once went to see General Corbin. Heistand was sent for and General Cor bin said: "Heistand, your man Hawkes Is using Secretary Allen's name in connection with that hemp company. You must call him off." Heistand replied that he would do so at once. Mr. Allen said he next heard of the matter when Hawkes came to him and said he wanted a settlement of his claim. He told Hawkes he had nothing whatever to do with the concern and never had, and after a brief conversation Hawkes had expressed the same opinion, but asserted that Heistand had told hjm that witness was in it. He again saw General Corbln, who said that Hawkes had been to him also with the same claim. General Corbin had told him he had nothing to do with the concern. Lieutenant Colonel Heistand was then recalled >and cross-examined by Major Hawkes. Major Hawkes questioned Colonel Heistand regarding certain conversations between them. Replying to one query, Heistand remarked that Hawkes was "whimpering." Hawkes demanded in an excited manner: "Did you ever see me whlmperV' "I did," answered Colonel Heistand. "You lie!" shouted Major Hawkes. Senator Cockrell rebuked Hawkes and declared that no such language was per missible. RECIPROCITY AND TARIFF Continued Front First Page. portant situation. Several other senators and members of the house went to the Philippines during the summer, and the country may, therefore, expect to be sup plied with a good deal of information at first hands from the gentlemen who make the laws. MINNESOTA Auditor Rittman, who has charge of the settle- WAR ment of claims of states for reimbursement of war EXPENSES, expenditures, has paid the state of Minnesota $8,283.50 since June 30, when 'his annual report was made public. This amount was for service pay of men who offered themselves to the United States at the outbreak of the Spanish war, but were rejected by the medical examiners. The state paid them for the time spent in camp awaiting examination and is now repaid that out lay by the general government. This makes a total of $49,474.40 paid to the state on acocunt of claims aggregating $189,399. Claims of North and South Da kota were both small, and it is probable that congressional action will be neces sary before the outstanding balances can be cleared, as there were informalities in the claims and some technical hitch in the law.

That this would probably be the program was pointed out In these dis patches at the time. It Is curious, how ever, that one member of the cabinet should thus freely discuss the secrets of that body, and there is a disposition in official circles to look upon the Denver interview as spurious, notwithstanding it states a generally accepted fact. If Sec retary Gage said the things he,4s quoted as saying, it was to somebody in coy fldence, who afterwards repeated them to the newspapers.

Knowing Peruna to be a catarrh remedy they do not suppose Peruna would be good for fe male disease. Not knowing their dis ease is catarrh they naturally do not think of a catarrh remedy.

Miss Annie Hoban, Post Pocahontas of Yemassee Council of Red Men (Women's Branch), writes from 872 Eighth avenue, New York: "Three months ago I was troubled with backache and a troublesome heaviness about the stomach. Sleep brought me no rest, for it was a restless sleep. The doc tor said my nervous system was out of order but his prescriptions didn't seem to relieve me. I was told that Peruna was good for building up the nervous system. After using it for two months I know now that it is. I want to say that it made a new woman of me. The torturing symp toms have all disappeared and I feel my self again. Peruna did me more good than all the other medicines I have tak en." —Annie Hoban. Superior for Worn-Out Women. Mrs. M.

In cases of catarrh of the system there is nothing which will cure any quicker, and as a remedy for wornout women it is superior to anything I know. "It restores a mother after severe childbirth, and prevents pains and irregu larities in a very short time. I have found it of much value both as a pre ventative of colds and as a tonic when I have been feeling badly, and although I never give a testimonial for anything, I make an exception in favor of Peruna, as I consider it of exceptional value." — Mrs. M.

"As this was an absolute impossibility at the time, I had to try and regain my health in another way and was induced by a friend who gave Peruna such a good recommend to try Peruna. "I cannot tell you the condition of my nerves when I began to use it. The least noise irritated me and I felt that life was rot worth living, but Peruna soon changed me into a well woman, and now I do not know I have nerves."—Louise Bertsel.

Oct. s.—There Is c flutter in high society to-day owing to the fact that the earl marshal has issued the rules and regulations governing what is to be worn at the coronation of King Edward next year. The whole document breathes of the middle ages, when distinctions In dress were considered so essential, and the quaintness of the phraseology in which the attendance of the nobility of the United Kingdom is required "at the solemnity of the royal coronation of their most sacred majesties" and describing the regulations in regard to dresses and head dresses, is distinctly medieval. There Is a curious gradation in the fur trimmicgs with robes which emphasize the fine dis tinction. The nobles have been notified that their robes must be of "crimson velvet edged with miniver, the cape furred with miniver, pure and powdered, with bars or rows of ermine, according to their de gree." Here follow the numerical grada tions distinguishing between the ranks. Barons are allowed 2 rows of ermine, vis counts 2% rows, earls 8 rows, marquises 3^ rows, and dukes 4 rows. All the mantles and robes must be worn over full court dress, uniform or regimentals. The earl marshal's order banishes coun terfeit pearls and all jewels from the coronets, which are to be "'silver gilt, the caps of crimson velvet, turned up with ermine with gold taasela on top. No Jewels or precious stones are to be set or used in coronets, nor counterfeits of pearls instead of silver balls." The num ber of the latter permitted revives a nice sense of distinction. A baron's coronet bears 6 silver balls, a viscount's 16, an earl's 8 with gold strawberry leaves be tween; a marquis' 4 ball 3 and four leaves alternately. A duke's coronet has no ball and has only eight gold strawberry leaves. The earl marshal next prescribes the robes, mantles and coronets to be worn by the peeresses. These are of the same materials as the men's, with similar gradations in the number of bars of ermine and balls. The length of tho trains marks the difference in rank. A baroness is allowed a train of only 3 feet, a viscountess has 1 % yards, a marchioness has 1% yards, and a duchess 2 yards. Then follows a curt notification as U> who shall be excluded. Peeresses in theit own right and widows of peers are al lowed to come, but widows who have re married beneath their rank in the peer age are "not entitled to a summons to attend the coronation." A DETERMINED WOMAN Finally Found a Food That Curod Her. "When I first read of the remarkable ef fects of Grape-Nuts food, I determined to secure some," says Mrs. C. W. Aldridge, of Salisbury. Mo. "At that time there was none kept in this town, but my hus band ordered some from a Chicago trav eler, t I had been greatly afflicted with sudden attacks of cramps, nausea, and vomiting. Tried all sorts of remedies and physlciana but obtained only temporary relief. A« soon as I began to use the new food the cramps disappeared and have never reap peared. My old attacks of sick stomach were a little slower to yield, but by continuing the food, that trouble has disappeared en tirely. I am to-day perfectly well, can eat anything and everything I wish, with out paying the penalty that I used to. W« could not and would not keep bouse with- out Grape-Nuta. My husband was so delighted with the benefits I received that he has been reo ommendlng Grape-Nuts to his customer* and has built up a very large trade on the food. He sells them by the case to most of the leading physicians of the county, who prescribe Grape-Nuts very generally. There is some satisfaction in using • really scientifically prepared XowL"
