I Every Niece and Nephew of Uncle Sam should be deeply interested in what he hu nid about soda crackers, because they are the one food with which all of ( them are familiar. Uncle Sam hai given out figure showing; that soda - crackera are richer in nutriment and body-building elements, properly proportioned, than any food nude from flour. This if sayine much for common aoda crackers, and , much more for Uneeda BlSCUlt, becauie they an aoda crackera of the beat quality. They ate baked better more acientifically. They are packed better more cleanly. The damp, duat and odor proof package retaina all the gooaV i 'new and nutriment of the wheat, all the fretbrjess of the beat baking, all the purity of the cleanest bakeries. 1 Your Uncle Sam haa shown what food he thinks best ' for hit people.

By the election Wednesday of J. T. Harahan aa pres ident of the Illinois Central railroad company to succeed Stuyvesant Fish, it Is believed that E. H. Harrlman haa at last realized the fulfillment of his plan to control a railroad line from the Atlantic to the Pacifio oceans. In this great plan the Illinois Cen tral waa the one link missing to com-. .Uh. II.. A. ,,,. If imm NHW IUIE to San Francisco and Portland, Ore., from the great Lakea to the uuu oi Mexico and from the .Quit to the Pacific again. Until within a few months eastern terminals ot the Harrlman system were at Kanaaa City, Omaha and New Orleans. The first imnortant step In the direction ot securing the outlet on the Atlan tic seaboard of the Union Pacific and Southern Pacific railroads la believ ed to have been taken by Mr. Harrl man several weeka ago when It was reported that one ot the roads under his control had taken over control of the Baltimore ft Ohio by purchase of a block of 400,000 shares ef tne Baltimore ft Ohio company,- which waa sold by the Pennsylvania rail road comnanv. Thia would give Mr. Harrlman a route from Chicago and St. Louis to Baltimore and New York. To complete the ambltioua proposi tion for a continuous line from ocean to ocean It waa necessary only to connect the western terminals of the Baltimore ft Ohio wjth the eastern' terminals of the Southern Pacific and Union Pacific and this purpose the Illinois Central serves amply. Its line from Omaha to Chicago ties to gether the Union Pacifio and Balti more ft Ohio, while the Illinois Cen tral branch from Chicago to New Or leans gives the Southern Pacific en trance Into Chicago and the seaboard. Taken together this system. It uni fied, pnts under on control mora than 33,000 miles of track capitalised at more than ttf 00,000,000.. James T.
