i STRENGTH IN FOOD.
A Woman's Work Made Easy by Strength
A widow writes: "When I began to
use Grape-Nuts I had so much trouble
with my stomach and was very nervous
and as I make my living by really hard
work I needed all the strength possible
for I have two boys to support. .
"I began eating Grape-Nuts simply to
try the food,: but soon noticed that
my, trouble was going, and my nervous
ness was much less, so I continued to
; use Grape-Nuts food with the result
that I am now entirely cured. Grape
Nuts always agreed with me, and when
I work the hardest it seems to me I en
joy them and need them the most. They
satisfy me better and seem to do me
more good' than' meat.
'My younger boy, ' who inherits a
weak constitution from his father who
died of consumption, has been greatly
benefited by Grape-Nuts. He makes
his breakfast of Grape-Nuts and milk,
and the result of this diet has been that
his stomach Is much stronger, and his
appetite increased and altogether he is
like another boy.
"I notice this about Grape-Nuts, that
when I eat them and go away to work
they seem to stay by me and sustain
me better during the day than anything
else I eat. Name given by Postum Co.,

Miss Carter spoke of the recent insult
to Booker . T. Washington. ., She said:
"We are all banded .here to work to
gether, but our cause seems to be grow
ing darker instead of brighter. 1 1 think
of the recent insult offered to Booker T.
'Washington and I feel that those who
are responsible for that affair in Boston
are not our people not part of the race
that I am In. Some people are afraid
to mention Booker T. Washington, but
we ought- to be proud to have such a
man one of us. ; He Is not working for
those who are upon the pinnacle, but
those who are .lower, v They may per
haps be funny-looking, but not funnier
than lots of others.' . "
In conclusion she said: - "Before we
adjourn I. want to have a motion made
endorsing the sentiments of Booker T.
Washington. We should support him.
When a man like Andrew Carnegie can,
we ought to let the world see that we
are not afraid to endorsees work and
approve of the good work that he is
doing. We ought to let all the public '
know that we are proud of him."
The reports of the various committees
were then heard and the meeting ad
