For this one night My spirit has turned honey-moth, And has made of the stars Its flowers. So all uncountable are the stars That heaven shimmers as a web. Bursting with light From beyond, A light exquisite. Immeasurable! For this one nigtot My spirit has dared, and been caught In the web of the stars. Though your beauty were a ent Of unimaglned power, It could not hold me tonight For I am all spirit. Starvation In The Midst of Plenty Many are actually starving, even though eating hearti ly three times a day. They are starving because the usual diet lacks certain essential dements. In making white flour, the outer ooat of the wheat, con taining the phosphate of potash and other vital mineral salts, is discarded. These mineral salts are absolutory, necessary to nerve health and therefore to body health.. contains the whole nutriment of wheat and barley, includ ing the mineral salts. The malting of the barley starts di gestive processes and the 20-hour baking breaks down the starch cells. Grape-Nuts food digests in about one-third of the time required by white bread. Beady to serve—oonvenient, healthful and appetizing. "There's a Reason" for Grape-Nats —Richard Butler Glaenzer. FOOD —gold by Grocers everywhere.

Alfonso Directs Search in America for Picture Stolen From Church. New York Sun: A famous painting on wood of the buriel of Christ and of Adam and Eve in the Garden of Eden, said to be worth *250,000, is being sought in this country by agents of the Spanish government. King Alfon so has taken a personal interest in the recovery of the picture, and is paying the expenses of the search. He has offered a reward of *60,000 out of his private purse. The planting, which is in the form of a triptych, was stolen from the al tar of a church in Nigera, province of Castille, where it had been since 1380. The artist is unknown. Experts say it is one of the finest examples of the fourteenth century work in existence. While the value of $250,000 has been placed upon it, F. Javier Saals, the Spanish consul in this city, said that it is priceless. Although the triptych was missed on Christmas eve, nothing was said about it, the government agents pre ferring to keep the loss a secret. It was only recently, when it wan believ ed the picture had been sent to thisi country, that the United States cus toms authorities were asked to help. Photographs of the picture have been distributed to every port and a par ticularly close search will be made of the baggage of all passengers arriving at Boston within the next few days. The Spanish consul believes that the same band of American picture thieves, members of which were im prisoned several years ago for robbing churches in Spain, know the where abouts of the triptych. BOUGHT HOR8E BY PIECES. Missouri Campfire Girls Found a Way to Get a Water Carrier. St. Lewis Republic: Wegotlm is*the name of a gentle horse that was bought on the anatomical plan by the Atlasta camp of the Y. W. C. A., for girls under 19 years old at Valley Park, Mo. He was bought literally piece by piece—his body for $9, head for $5, each leg for $5 and the tail for *1. In this way interested benefac tors helped to buy Wegotim, so that the camp girls could be relieved of the burden of carrying their suitcases and so that the camp could have ice brought to it daily. How it all happened is told by Miss Gertrude L. Prack, the girls* work secretary of the Y. W. C. A.: "As the rates at Atlasta are exceed ingly nominal, the girls do most of their own share of the work. Soon af ter opening the camp we saw that we would need a horse. It was no fun for a girl to carry tier heavy suitcase for three-quarters of a mile. The ice man announced he would no longer haul ice, because Atlasta was his only customer in that section, and he melted a day's supply by going out there. "All our available money for Atlasta it seemed was gone, but the Hearth Fire Girls always find a way out of a difficulty. They divided the horse into pieces from head to tail, and saw to it that each piece was purchased by some interested person. "In this way we managed to get *35 to buy the horse."

John Lind, special envoy Instructed to tell Presi dent Huerta that he must walk the plank, has been charged with giving aid and comfort to the C&rranza Junta since his return from Mexico but not wild horses could drag out of Mr. Lind an admission that he was so indiscreet. To protect him Mr. Wilson's friends in congress sidetracked & resolution to investigate Mr. Lind's connection with Capt. Hopkins, who was actively In terested In the legal aspects of evad ing the embargo on arms. But now that Vlctoriano Huerta has actually crumbled Envoy Lind emits a note of bitter sarcasm when asked to comment upon the departure of the dictator from the Mexican capital: "No, I have nothing to say. Let the republican leaders In Washington, who espoused the cause of Huerta, do the talking. Their continued lamentations over the passing of his regime of privilege, loot and murder will not mislead the people." This was really a good deal for Si lent" John to say It shows hlnr in the light of an uncompromising par tisan of the administration's policy of watchful watting for the'insurgent vic tories. Not even Pancho Villa could speak more disrespectfully of Gen. Huerta. Mr. Lind was evidently the right man to send down to intervene in Mexico. He may not have accom plished much, but he was true as steel. If the dictator did not treat the envoy with distinguished consideration, per haps it was because Gen. Huerta was a mind reader. mmmtm We We Give Farfo's Sheppiag Ceitsr—Wkere Prices tad Quality Meet Clean-Up Specials In Wash Goods Dep't HE ENDOWS HOSPITALS Another Pennsylvania Capitalist Seeks to Die a Poor Man. Philadelphia Cor. New York World: A local philanthropist purposes to give all his wealth to hospitals before he dies. He is George W. Nevil, 67, a bachelor, of No. 1514 Girard avenue. He Is separating from his wealth in ?5,000 Installments. Already he has contributed *38,000 to Philadelphia hospitals. Last Wednesday Mr. Nevil gave *5, 000 to the German nospital for the per petual endowment of a free bed In the public wards. Previously he had given $18,000 to the Home for Incurables, $5,000 to the Jewish hospital, $5,000 to the Pennsylvania hospital and $5,00u to St. Joseph's hospital. Since the death of his sister and brother, within the last two years, Mr. Nevil has had no relatives, His par ticular interest now Is the welfare of mankind. He has made a study of the results of philanthropy, and has come to the conclusion that hospitals are the most worthy beneficiaries. He shuns publicity and is very mod est about his gifts. "In fact, it would displease me very much to have printed anything about my philanthropy," he told a reporter. It makes him happy to be the in strumentality whereby some one may regain his health, he said, and it's the only happiness he can find. The Sanitary Fad. One of the most overworked ad jectives in the dictionary is the word "sanitary." No grocery, bakery, res taurant or barber shop Is worthy of the name unless it has the word "sani tary" attached. Not only food, but clothing, and all sorts of appliances are advertised as being "strictly sani tary." Recent years have witnessed a marked improvement in such matters, but the word sanitary may be exploit ed for gain, and so inspire a false con fidence. Dr. Arthur M. Stimson, pas sed assistant surgeon of the U. S. pub lic health service, points out the fai.se security that may rest upon some "sanitary-looking" mysterious appara tus, as, for example, in tho ignorant use, or rather misuse, of disinfectant or deodorants. Disinfectants have their use, particularly In the case of communicable disease, but deodorant: are of qquestlonable value, and ma v be a menace to health in absorbing or neutralizing an odor, without destroy ing the dangerous substance from which it proceeds. If plumbing is modern and kept in good condition, these appliances are superfluous Genuine sanitation depends more upon old fashioned cleanliness than any thing else, and housewives should not be lulled Into a false sense of security through the use of appliances and pre parations expoited for gain.—Frances Frear In Leslie's. Hundreds ask, How do you keep it so cool at the Isis.—Advt QUIT. Pull the clapper from the bell, Let the noiseless clamors swelt Plug the guns with oakum thick, Beat the drums with padded stick. Raise again the silent cheer, Earth and air and sea are drear. Slowly now the moments flit— Huerta's quit! —Cleveland Plain Dealer. An Irrepressible Influence. Washington Star: "There's no way to beat the society game," said the man of simple ideals. "Have you tried it?" "Yes. I persuaded my wife and daughters there is nothing in society. So they called in some of their society friends and organized an Anti-society club that gives the handsomest recep tions and Ranees in town."
