TEXAS' PRODIGY TO THE FRONT. he Touns Han Jlates Speech That Tally Shows His Jlettle. UTSOX PLEASED WITH HIS OWX STATE ITBOM X STJiTT COHEESrONDEXT.1 "WjLSHlSGTOJi, Aug. 4. The spirit of hankfulness was so pervasive and tangible t the Capitol to-day as to be almost visi le. A long drawn out sigh of relief ex pressed the feelings teelings not always efore expressed in orthodox language of early every member of Congress at both nds of the CapitcL Members and employes who hare been weltering in the ill-ventilated halls of the louse and Senate daring the recent torrid feather solely on account of the deadlock ver the Fair appropriation saw signs of peedy relief, and unless some mishap oc urs that cannot now be foreseen, Congress vill adjourn sine die on Saturday after oon, or at farthest, in the early days of ext week. Members generally are pack ng their gripsacks to flee on Saturday, al hough both Houses to-day extended the ppropriations to cover August 10. The Texans who refused to stay in the ancus yesterday and gave notice that they rould filibuster against the substitute Dur urow bill, which provided for an ap ropriation of ?5,000,000 for the Fair, made distressing failure to-day. A march was tolen upon them at the outset, and they rere defeated in their plans before their rits woke up. A Surprise to the Filibustered. Almost as soon as prayers were said Mr. Patchings, who returned to the city last ight, reported a rule from the Committee n Rules, prescribing that it would be the rder to-day to suspend the rules for the asisage of bills, as on the first and third Iqndays of each month, which are known s j'suspension days." Here was the point t uliicli filibustering should have begun, nt ithe Texan objectors, Kilgore, Bailey nd Anthony, were busy planning how ley would obstruct the Durburow bill, and ie : -nle was adopted without a dissenting jic ;. Tl is rule absolutely put it beyond the owi r of any filibustering to make more iour or five dilatory motions, as a bill its passage under a suspension of the is is not subject to obstruction as it fild be if taken up in its regular order. fVlien it dawned upon the Texans that ljjy were beaten by the rule, Mr. Bailey I uausted every possible obstructive otion, but as a quorum voted every time, id as only a ball-dozen, all Texans, voted .h him, he could neither pass nor obstruct motion, could neither get tellers, nor corn el the calling of the yeas and nays, so that e was soon at the end of his string, and the esolntion to suspend the rules and consider ne Durburow bill in committee of the hole, a, vote to be taken at 1 o'clock to lorrow, was'speedily adopted. The Texas I'podlcy to tlio Front. Mr. Bailey, the iniant prodigv(he is only 9 years only) from Texas, delivered him elt of a very well-constructed and sensible peech, however. He described to tboe democrats who opposed the 5,000,000 'steal," Out who had agreed to a compro lise upon 52,500,000, in good set terms the illainous logic that could denounce the 5,000,000 as a "steal," a "raid on the "reasury," and with apparently clear con ciences agree to a "steal" of $2,500,000. ie had little fault to find with the Demo rats who had all along favored the appro priation. He did not condemn the Repub icaus, but he certainly made those Demo rats look down their noses aud squirm in heir chairs, who had talked so highly and olily against a 55,000,000 steal and had con ented so easily and grace! ullv to a 52,500, 00 steal. These half dozen Texans, of whom Mr. tilgoreand Mr. Bailey are the most con picuous, assuredly had the logic of the ituation with them, but they had not much lse. This tiresome and disgraceful episode of he end of the first session of the Fifty-first loncress will close to-morrow, in all prob bility. The only chance for further pro onging the matter will occur it the Dur urow bill be defeated upon the direct vote rhen it is reported to the whole House rom the committee of the whole. It was learly stated to-day that the caucus action ound no one to vote for the bill. Not Otip of tun Tioa That Ulnd. Mmbers who accepted the compromise ad agreed to let a vote be taken upon it rithout obstruction may yet vote against he bill, and it is possible that the vote mar e very close. The probabilities are, how ver, that its passage is insured, as any ther result would simply lead the Senate o insist on the retention ot the 55,000,000 jnendment in the sundry civil bill. Thoueh this bill was sent back to a con erence by the House, the Senate adjourned rithout taking any action, and the adjourn nent is until 2 o'clock to-morrow afternoon -a lorcible hint to the House that the Sen te does not propose to be the fly that will ralk into the parlor of the Democratic pider. Two o'clock is one hour after 1 'clock, the time when the House agreed ty resolution to take a vote on the'Dur- turow bilf. It the latter measure pass at hat time the Senate will at once take it up, nd when it is safelv passed bv that body, assed beyond recall, the Senate will then irovide for a further conference on the suu Iry civil bill, and possibly, in case all this appens, the remaining work ot the two louses may be finished by Saturday evening. The Durburow substitute bill, it may be aid, does not meet the approbation of the riends of the Fair at all, but they feel they ne forced to accept this or notlftng. if hey secure the two and a half millions now t will anewer for expenditures possibly un it Congress meets in December, whenjan ther two and a half millions can be asked or, when the elections do not stare mem :rs in the face. ItcporU From the Jajf Committer. A committee which promises to have sev eral reports is the Watson "Committee on. fags," as it has been vulgarly named, ferry Simpson has prepared a report which irgues throughout that enough has been iroved to justify even the sweeping lan ruage used by Mr. Watson in his campaign extbook. The Chairman of the committee vill write a report for the majority, which vill exonerate Judge Cobb, of Alabama, rom the charge of drunkenness, and will old that the evidence in no way supports he charge of Mr. Watson, that members rttempted to make speeches when they were n a, state of maudlin drunkenness, and lrunken members reeled about the aisles, vir. Grout, of New Hampshire, the one Ke ublican of the committee, will probably iake a third report, showing that it had een proven that members had been seen a the floor who were under the influence of iquor, but not in sufficient numbers or fre quency to justify language which imputed a somewhat general inebraition to the House. Mr. Watson said this afternoon that he had no information as to the time when the reports would be presented to the House, nor In regard to the character of his pun ishment. The majority report will severely censure the offender, and leave it to the House to name the penalty. Possibly there may be a scene if any attempt is made to censure Watson, as the Republicans may filibuster against any motion to that efie'et. The Republicans have constantly given aid and comfort to the Alliance peo ple in the House, for the purpose of mak ing more oflensive to them the really shabby treatment they have had at the hands of the Democrats. Watson rieased With Alabama. Mr. Watson is greatly pleased by the re sult of the Alabama election. He is con vinced that Kolb, the Independent Demo crat candidate, will be found to be fairly elected Governor if the votes can be hon estly counted. At least, the majority of the 'straight-out candidate, instead of being 50,000, as was at first reported, will be re duced to nothing. Mr. Watson is emphatic, however, in announcing that Kolb was not accepted by the Alliance as its candidate. It is now the policy of the People's party to formally support tio candidate who is not an avowed member of the party. Representative Watson speakei with en thusiasm of the work that is being done for pure democracy with a small d, by the People's party, summing it all up in the declaration that the result of the movement will be that the solid South will be broken up, that there will be no white man's or black man's partv, that every citizen will be able to exercise his Tight to suffrage without hindrance or intimidation, and that there will be a free ballot and an honest count. One could forgive a few cranky propositions in any party or movement which would bring about such a blissful condition of affairs in the South. Political Effect of the FiUbnsterlnc. That the effect of the Democratic filibus tering against the World's Fair appropria tion will be heard in the politics of Illinois and the States immediately around it, is claimed by all the Republicans and ad mitted by many Democrats. A prominent Democratic member of the House, not from Illinois, told me to-day that his party might as well give up all hope of carrying Iowa, Michigan, and even Indiana, as these States were almost equally with Illinois inter ested in and enthusiastic for the success of Fair. This member had lately been through all of the States named, and he declared that it seems to be the unanimous senti ment of the people that the Democrats had made such colossal fools of themselves in this Fair matter that they ought to be taught a severe salutary lesson. Jerry Simpson, of Kansas, who is one of the most practical, dispassionate and philosophical of men, takes very easily the tremendous effort which be asserts is being made to defeat his re-election. He is in formed that about 8,000 negroes have been imported from Southern States into his dis trict to work on a new railroad, and that an attempt will be made to vote them against him. Mr. Simpson says, however, that he has about 10,000 certain majority and he can stand a few thousand imported fraudu lent votes, if those who try to vote them can. Mr. Simpson is emphatic in giving bis assur ance that the People's party will carry Kansas, the State ticket and the Presi dental electors, by a large majority. DEATH OF A CENTENARIAN.

Lincoln, Neb., Aug. 4 After the most bitter struggle ever known in a Nebraska Republican convention, the State conven tion adjourned at 7 o'clock this evening, without having made a nomination. The delegates will reconvene at 9:30 to-morrow morning, and the fight will be renewed. The great contest came on at 3:30, when the ballot for Governor began. The nominees were: Lorenzo Crounze, Assistant Secre tary of the Treasury; ex-Congressman Thomas Majors, Lawson Sheldon, A. E. Caddy, Jack McCall and Judge Reese. The first ballot resulted: Crounze, 376; Majors, 314; Sheldon, 42; Cody, 82; Beese. L There was little change on the second bal lot, but when the third ballot was ordered the trouble began. Pandemonium reigned for half an hour, but at 6:45 another ballot was taken, which resulted: Crounze, 393; Majors, 317; Sheldon, 33; Cady. 60; McCall, 40; Beese, 2. After the result had been known, an effort was made to adjourn but the motion was lost. There was con siderable filibustering and in the middle of it, the lights in the Opera House were turned out, A theatrical troupe was booked to play there to-night, and in order to secure adjournment, the proprietor of the theater took this means to bring tbe con vention to time. The play proved suc cessful, and the convention was forced to adjonrn until morning. The platform, which is lengthy, indorses President Harrison's administration and denounces Pinkertonism, and favors Government postal telegraph and postal savings banks. ELAINE LIVING IS SECLUSI05. Bat Be and Morton Will Take an Active Fart In the Campaign. Bar Habbok, Aug. 4. SpecidW Of the talk of Mr. Blaine's taking the stump comparatively little is heard here, for at this season Bar Harbor deals but little in politics. Mr. Blaiue is living in the ut most seclusion at Stanwood, seeing few but his most intimate friends. That his mind is actively at work, however, is shown by the fact that he is in conference with states men and politicians. It is said that one of the members of Mr. Harrison's Cabinet called upon Mr. Blaine last week. Mr. Blaine passed last Monday in Ells worth, visiting Senator Hale, who is to take the stump very soon. Joseph H. Manlev. of Augusta, came up to Ellsworth Tuesday night, which he spent at Senator Hale's, and then came on to Bar Harbor and spent an hour with Mr. Blaine. Both Mr. Blaine and Mr. Manley decline to speak for publi cation, at present at least. Mr. Manley, who Ib to return here soon, will have some thing to tell when the plans are perfected. Mr. Blaine, it is positively asserted, will take the stump during the" campaign, and do all he can for the success of his.party. It is also asserted that Vice President Mor ton will take an active part in the cam paign. JONES' MAJ0KITI ABOUT 20,000, But the Eolbltes Still SttcK to It That Their Man Has Won. Montgomery, Ala., Aug. 4. Reports from all the counties but two have been received. The official count will take place Saturday. Governor Jones' majority will be in the neigh borhood of 20,000.

You will make note of all irregularities. Keep an account of all votes that weie illegally cast and bo prepared to have it. Circulate this among your friends and go to the Court House in such numbeis as to show that you are determined to preserve vour rights. The indications now are that Kolb is elected Governor and that tbe Legislature will be composed of true men who will see Justice done in the premises. And I urge you to do your duty, from now on, as you nave done in the past, and not lose the fruits ofyourvlotory. Completed Their Ticket. HtTNTiNGTON, W. Va., Aug. 4.

The Demoeratlo Nominee Begins Bis Cam paigning in His Old Home State. Louisville, Kt., Aug. 4 This has been a great day and night for the Kentucky Democrats. The opening and dedication of the new Watterson Clubhouse drew to gether all the leaders of the party in the State. The Governor and bis staff came down from Frankfort The Legislature was left without a quorum. But the chief feature of the occasion was the pres ence ot Hon. Adlai -E. Stevenson, Democrat nominee for Vice President who came at the invitation of the Watterson Club, and spoke both to a great concourse of people at Leiderkranz Hall and to a smaller gathering at the Watterson Club house, where he was given a reception, and where Mr. Watterson, in spite of his-j-ecent severe illness, of which he showed decided traces, also spoke. Hon. John Yonng Brown, Governor of Kentucky, presided over the great mass meeting, and introduced General Steven son to the immense audience. He was greeted with tumultuous enthusiasm. His speech was devoted to the great deeds of Kentuckians and Illinoisans, and was punctuated with applause. Speeches were also made by Hon. J. Proctor Knott, Hon. James A. McKenzie, Hon. Boyd Win chester, Hon. Albert S. Willis, and others. After the adjournment oi the mass meeting General Stevenson gave a publio reception. The members of the Watterson Club and their invited guests then repaired to the Watterson Clubhouse, where a repast, fol lowed by a feast ot reason and a flow of soul, awaited the Democratic braves. Mr. Watterson, though still suffering, made a characteristic address. Democrats Catch Republicans Napping. Nashville, Tenn., Aug. 4. County elections were held in all the counties of this State to-day. The elections were quiet In Middle and West Tennessee, as a rule, Democrats were elected and in East Tennes see Republicans, though in Chattanooga, a Republican city, the Democrats took the Republicans unawares and swept tbe county. In the Congressional primaries in the Fifth Congressional district Hon. J. D. Richardson is overwhelmingly elected, de feating Hon. Ernest Pillow in nearly every countv in the district SUCCESS AT ETNA. Members of the Amalgamated Association Do Not Like the Idea of Non-Cnlon Men Being in the JU1U of Spang, Chal ftnt Si Co. Success marks the operation of the plate department in the works of Spang, Chalfant & Co. at Etna. All the furnaces are run ning full blast and the requisite number of heats are being made. The members of the Amalgamated Association do not seem to take kindly to the change in af fairs. When they learned that the plate department was being operated successfully they immediately is sued a call for a meeting. This call reads as follows: "There will be a mass meeting in Odd Fellows Hall on Thursday after noon. All the iron and steel uorkers of Etna are invited to attend. All working men come. By order of the committee." A representative of The Dispatch went to Etna about 2 o'clock, the time set tor the Catherine, and met several members of the Amalgamated Association, who said that the meeting was open to anyone, but fore the meeting cemmenced several out siders were told to retire by Thomas Byers, one of the Mill Committee. A visit to tbe office of Spang, Chalfant & Co. revealed that the plate mill crew had just finished their last heat. 'The iron turned out is as good as that made before the shut down. Manager Chalfant was"seen coming 'to ward the mill, and when spoken to said: You have been through the milk We. do not keep anyone out who wishes to go iu. The gates are open, and we have had no trouble. The men are better satisfied now than they were before, and alter resuming operations Tuesday over SO of bur old employes, and as many strangers, asked for employment They were informed that at present there was no work for them." The entire puddling de partment is repaired and ready to start at any time, though no attempt has been made to put it in operation. One of the Amalgamated men was seen later in the evening. In speaking of the afternoon meeting he said: "We had a good meeting. President-elect Garland and Vice President Sheehan, of the Amalga mated Association, were present and made stirring addresses to the men, about 200 of whom were in the hall. They cautioned the men to stand together and said they would undoubtedly win. Secretary-elect Kilgallon was also present, and warned the men not to use violence in getting the workers now at work to cease operations. A vote was taken on tbe arbi tration question and that measure met with unanimous defeat" Tbe Etna merchants complain of a dull ness in trade. Thev say their customers are buying closer and some are confining themselves only to necessities. The only rolling mill in the borough idle, and two of the three blast furnaces not working, makes business practically at a standstill, and many are eagerly awaiting a settle ment HOT BUEPASSED BY ANY. Description of the New Rolling Mill Added to the Hrapp Works. Recently a new rolling mill has been added to the Krupp works in the Ohio Val ley which, it is stated, Is not surpassed by any in the world. It is for rolling armor plates, and turns out the heaviest plates of this description that cap possibly be re quired; that is, those of about 28-inch thick ness and nearly four yards wide. Some idea of the dimensions or this machine may be obtained from the statement that each pair of crucible rollers, when in the rough state, weighed 100,000 pounds; and the en tire rolling mill, with its reversing engine, the large furnaces, the cranes that can move 300,000 pounds, its beuding presses, etc., form of themselves almost a complete plant Immense shears, with long, steel blades, cut through the plates as easily as ordinary shears cut through paper, and extremely thin plates are also produced. Automatie tables are employed tor raising and lower ing the plates in their passage from one set ot rollers to the other, and automatic de vices for guiding them as they pass be tween tbe rollers or are taken from them. So automatic is this process that, without the aid of tongs or levers, the glowing blocks move back and forth between the rollers. An Excellent Showing For the fiscal year ending June 30, -1892, the Government report of the manufacture of tin and terne plate in the Unit ed States shows that the total amount of tin turned out during the vcar was 4,539,231 pounds,. and of terne 9,162,329 pounds. This is con sidered a handsome exhibit for this indus try. A New Coal Plant.

Ohio's Wheat Crop Will Ee 1,000,000 Bushels Short This Tear. PIKES, FAILURES AND RAILWAY HEWS SPECIAL TELZOKAU TO THE DISPATCH.! New Orleans, Aug. 4. The two new Levee Boards created by the last Legis lature, the Bake Borgne basin and Ba Fourche basin district, organized to-day. These boards are appointed by the Gover nor and are authorized to levy taxes up to 1 per cent, with other special laws, on all crops and produce lands, averaging ly, per cent on the assessment of property, and to issne bonds for the construction of levees. The motion of these two boards completes the levee system in Louisiana, taking all the levees away from the control of the State and placing thera under local.control. It means a large increase in the revenue for levee building and the raising and strength ening of levees. The La Fourche levee district will undertake at once the construc tion of 5450,000 worth oflevees. 8MALLEK IXOUB OTJTf UZ. The Export Demand Bather Better Than Domestic Inquiry. MnraiAPOLis, Aug. L The Xortfucettern Hitter says: As a result of accidents, caus ing two mills to stand idle the cloilnj half of last week and others to lose more or less time, the flour output fell short of what it was expected to be. The week's production was 192.610 barrels, averaging 32,102 barrels daily, ngainst 193,070 barrels the previous week, 171,400 for the corresponding time in 1891 and 196,470 barrels in 1890. For the same reason that existed last week, tbe output for this week will likely show a decrease. Flonr continues in active demand, and, as wheat is a trifle cheaper, prices are easier. Foreigners appear to be mora tesponsive to any strength shown in wheat than Ameri cans are, and the export trade is, if any thing, rather better than domestic. The direct exports last week were 72 500 Darrels, against 70,160 barrels the preceding week. Ohio Wheat 1,000.000 tfnshela Short. Columbus, Aug. t 6erfai.

Streets Must Be Sewered Before They Will lie Krpaved Mr. Henrlcks Presents a Plan for the Issuance of 81,000,000 Worth of BondL The Allegheny sub-committee on streets and sewers had an interesting meeting last evening. Tbe question of the relationship of sewering to paving occupied considerable attention, and the committee put itself on record as being opposed to the paving or re pavlng of any street until after it has been sewered and the sewer completed for at least six months. There were brought up abont a dozen ordinances for the repaying of minor streets with vitrified brick, asphalt block or asphalt sheet. The committee added in each case the words "or other improved pavement," and recommended to the Committee on Public Works such ordinances as referred to streets already sewered. Chairman Faulin said he thought tbe committee ought not to recommend the paving of any street where the property owners had not secured sewer aze facilities. Mr. Henricks thought it ought to be made clear to the people that they must petition for sewers before asking for paving. The committee affirmatively recommended an ordinance providing that no street shall be repaved with improved pavement nnless already sewered or where the sewering can be done In the rear alleys, and that no re paving shall be done until at least six months alter the sewering has been com pleted. Henrlcks on G-nrra! Improvements. In connection with the question of re paving and sewering Mr. Henricks pre sented the following statement to the com mittee: The present discussion of the subject of public improvements In Allegheny City is one of great importance to the future wel fare of the city, aud it should be the aim of tbe committee to fully set forth the needs of the entire city, not a portion or particular section. We need better streets, better sewerage,-new and wide avenues to the sub urbs, more light, and last, but not least, we will havo to provide & better source of water supply before a great while. The public should be thoroughly informed as to the probable cost and manner of paying for the same. For large expenditures of money for permanent improvements tbe issue of bonds is the proper method, as it removes the burden and distributes it so that when the time for payment comes, a larger popu lation, a larger property valuation, and con sequently larger tax receiptsand a sinking fund, created by yearly amouts set aside, are ready to meet the bonds. In connection with this Question, I desire to call attention to several facts. One mill tax yearly will provide for an issue of $1, 000,000 bonds, at 4 per cent interest, payable lnSOyoars. One and one-half mill tax will provide for $1,500,000 bonds, payable in 80 years. The property valuation of Alleghenv is about $70,000,000, and 1 mill raises $70,000 yearly; IU mill would raise $105 000. With $1,000,000 bonds we could set $500 000 aside for street improvements, allow $300,000 for the Butchers' Run, Woods' Run and other needed sewers, allow about $50,000 te pay for con demning toll roads within the city limits, set aside $50,0C0 for increased electric light, and have $100 000 for general purposes, such as assisting in paying damages for opening or new and wide streets to develop the out lying wards, etc. Developing the Ontstde Districts. The valuation of rural propertv is about $25,000,000, out of a total of $70,000 COO. The acreage of the rural wards is 3,200 out ot 4,720. By Judicious management and open ing of Rood streets the valuation would be so raised that in the course of a few years the rural wards would pay most of the tax, and longbeloie the bonds would be duo tbe money expended on new avenues would be returned many times over. As an illustra tion. nrODertv where California avenne is laid out could have been bought two rears ago from $1,500 to $2,500. In other words, it returns over Ave liii'es the taxes to the city treasury since the avenue has been ODened. The balance of the rural wards will, if properly opened up, add their quota of inci eased tax returns to the city. The mechanic, merchant and wealthy clas3'can all find homes at reasonable figures and the exodus to the East End of Pltfburg bo stopped. With a million and a hair bonds the extra $500,000 conld De expended on tbe water supply and a better supply secured. I would suggest that meetings be held in eaoh ward and the matter thoroughly discussed, and citizens and Councilman have a full in terchange of views, so that whatever be done in November next be for the best in terests of the entire city. Chairman Faulin said he considered the matter suggested by Mr. Henricks to be of great importance, and thought the members of the committee ought to have' time to con sider it some length. At the request of Mr. Henricks the communication was laid over, so that members could study the questions involved. He hoped the committee would be able to formulate a general plan to be submitted to the Finance Committee. The committee opened bids for repaying Cabinet street and lor the construction of a jetty to carry the Butchers' Run sewer out into the current in the Allegheny river. FBEED BY A FAITHFUL WIFE.

Archbishop of St. Paul we return Your Holiness our bese thanks. With all our strength we always endeavor to remove discussions among pastors, and to keep inviolate the bonds of charity among all for the promotion of tha spiritual welfare of the faithful and to foster and inciease union with the Apostollo See. Nor do we deem that we have failed in this, the greatest of pastoral duty by open ing our mind to Your Holiness, ai we were Induced to do so, not in a spirit of strife.buc through a deep sense of our pastoral office. Nor did we suppose, in like manner that our letter would suggest even the slightest doubt of our obedience to the See of Peter, both because we acted simplv in tbe dis charge of our duty, as also because it Is well known that we have always lullr and cheerfully obeyed the orders and advice of Your Holiness. Carrying out the wish of Your Holiness, with united counsels, e will employ every means to provide for the properinstructioa of Catholic youths attending public schools; but, lest there be any suspicion that thus fur our episcopal solicitude has not extended ltdeir in this direction, we beg toiniorm Your Holiness that in the entire ecclesias tical province or New York Sunday school have been establ.shed In which, alter com plying with the precept of hearing mass.tha boys and girls attending the public schools are taught their catechism.

It Is Easily Avoided and May Often Ba Aj Easily Relieved. Cholera Infantum can be prevented by proper feeding, and It can often be cured In the same way. Mr. Horace R. Lane, of Burlington, Vt., writing to tbe Boston Journal, says: "With this letter I send yon a photograph of Bessie F. Lane, whose life. I think, was uved by the use or lactatcd food. Her mother conld not nurse the little one, and the doctor ordered one of the oldest and most widely advertised artificial foods; bat Bessie refused to take It. The doc tor then recom mended lactated food, and the baby liked it, thrlred as well as on mother's milk, and was the picture of health while riving upon ( T afar) -when BESSIE LASE. ' " she was a little over two years old. she was taken with a severe attack of cholera Infantum, and was so low that life was despaired of. Lactated fcod was riTcn. and all other nourish ment stopped, and she soon nicked up. gaining flesh rapidly, and is to-day. as the photograph shows, a picture of perfect health. 1 hare adrlaed many of my friends to use lactated food, and It has never yet failed to do all that Is claimed for It." Infants fed on lactated food suffer less and fewer die than those fed on any other. Mothers should thoroughly understand what this lactated food Is, how pure and nourishing and how succeasfullr It meets nature's requirements. It is a food which contain all the nntrltlre properties sufficient to develop the child's bone, muscle and fat, and which Is digestible from the time of birth and nourishes as long as it Is eaten. No sugar Is used In it but tbe pure sugar of milk, and this In proportion to most closely represent mother's milk. With It Is combined pure barley malt, tbe finest wheat gluten, and the nutritious elements of the oat, and the mixture Is thoroughly cooked by high steamfheat.
