An effort is being made by MaJ. Sylvester to give some protection to the crossing po licemen In addition to what they already he.ve Under the present arrangement they are supposed to get $5 a week from a fund set apart for their benefit In case of sick ness. It happen*, however, that there Is not. always $5 In the fund. Interest in the matter has been revived by the case of Crossing Policeman Osburn, who was shot so seriour.iy several days ago while trying to arrest a colored man for robbery. It has been decided to charge an admission fee to the police target contest, to take place shortly, and apply the proceeds to the fund. A recommendation has also been made to Congress to make an appropria tion for their assistance. Revenue Cutter on Patrol Duty. The revenue cutter Onondago, which is to do patrol duly on the Atlantic coast from Hampton Roads to Barnegat, left Philadelphia yesterday and will take up her work at once. The Onondago will keep a sharp lookout for vessels in distress, and will give them aid whenever necessary. This patrol work will be kept up until next spring, and the Onondago will have her headquarters at Norfolk. Much good, in saving life and property, is expec ted from this system of patrol.

When the body is clogged up by the use of 'Im proper food and sickncss sets In there is nothing so gcod as a "house cleaning" and the right way to do this is to change the food, for although tak ing medicines may afford temporary relief a com plete cLange of food is mueh the surest and safest way. The highest medical authority in the world, "The Lancet" of London, says of Grape-Nuts: "Our analysis shows it is a nutritive of a high order since it contains the constituents of a complete food in very satisfactory ami rich proportion and in an easily assimilable state." "About two years ago," says a resident of Springfield, Ind., "I had terrible stomach trouble and although I tried all kinds of medicines none of them cured me. I was ?o run down 1 co?ld not eat, got very little sle;*p. and wax dlzxv-heade?l and miserable all of th.? time. About that tim? a friend told m? that the only way to cure my trouble was to change my food and recommended Grape-Nuts. "From my very tirst meal of Grape-Nuts my stomach began to get better and all the Improve ments that come from a healthy stomach in place of an unhealthy one soon followed, and this was not all. for just as great an Improvement came in my brain. All of the dizziness is gone and my brain is now clear and active. I can eat anything I want, sleep well and am altogether a new man mentally and physically. "At the time I commenced to use this food 1 was nothing but a skeleton weighing 130 pounds, but now I have gut back my normal weight of nearly 200." Name given by Postum Co., Battle Creek, Mich.
