..•• "Gathering-.
The second annual i-eunlon and picnic
of the natives of Columbiana County,
Ohio, now residents of this city and
county* with their families, was held
today at the Soldiers' Home Park.
The flfst picnic of the Columblanans
was held at the same place last year, at
which it was decided to form a perma
nent organisation and make the re
unions an annual event. The plan met
with a hearty response from the numer
ous former residents of the celebrated
Ohio county, and at the first gathering
165 enrolled. The officers for the past
year have been: H. E. Simkins, presi
dent: Nathan Edsall, of Hartland, vice
president Miss Itiartha McMlliafi, sec
retary, and O. H. Hole, treasurer.
The membership of the society has
doubled within the year, and at this
annual gathering in the neighborhood
of 300 were present. They came from
all sections of the county—from Bangor,
Llscomb, LuMoUle, Hartland, LeGrand,
FeTguson and elsewhere, with a large
number from this city. They caine by
carriage, by wagon and by train, all
with the avowed intention of having a
good time and allowing no one to go
home hungry.
The forenoon wns spent in extending
greetings and in spreading out the con
tents of heavily laden baskets. Ad
dresses are being made this afternoon,
Cien. B. A. Beeson making the principal
speech. The reunion will be brought to
a cl03e with a short business session.

Practice Already lleeun for Football
—Arrangements for Guinea.
The interest in the fall and winter
sport, football, has commenced simul
taneously with the opening of the
present school year, and practice has
already commenced. The prospects for
a team this year are as good as last, it
is thought, but the same difficultly will
be experienced—a lack of. beef. The
school turned out some quick and
snappy players last season, and the
work was quite aggressive. Weight
was lacking, however, for the team
seemed to under average almost every
eleven against which it lined up.
At a meeting of the athletic associa
tion Principal McCowan was elected
treasurer, to fill the vacancy caused by
the resignation from the high school
corps of teachers of Mr. J. A. Wau
chope. The captains of the football,
base ball and track teamB have not been
named as yet. Mr. Grove Harris was
named as a representative to attend
a meeting of high school athletic rep
resentatives at Grinnell, at which time
a schedule of inter-high school football
games will be arranged. Several let
ters asking games have been received
by the association. Thp boys expect to
put even a stronger team on t)ie grid
iron this season than last.

Mr. Clyde W. Morse, who is clerk to
the mayor and, during the sessjon of
the grand jury, has been clerk to that
body, also, was robbed during the night
of between $35 and $40 In cash,
The theft occurred at the Morse home
at 608 East Linn street. Entrance was
gained to the house by prying oft

having feen working hard during the

asleep. A young man who is rooming
at the Morse home and who Is working

flndlr.g some bureau drawers lying In
the center of the dining room floor and
other suspicious circumstances, he
aroused the household. Mr. Clyde
Morse's clothes, which had been thrown
across the back of a chair, were found
on the porch, where the burglars had
carried them before going through the
pockets. From an inner pocket of the
coat they secured seven $5 bills and
from the trousers pockets they took
or $3 in silver. A watch in the vest had
been overlooked, or else was not de
The burglars also ransacked the
drawers of the dresser. They had Car
ried the drawers to the dining room and
had emptied the contents on the floor.
It is thought they were frightened
away before finishing their work, as
considerable money belonging to Mi
Morse's mother was not found.
The robbery was evidently the work
of some one who was aware that the
city employes had just been allowed
their month's salaries by the city coun
cil, as when Mr. Morse came up town
to report the robbery to the police. Im
mediately after its occurrence, Officer
Cochran, who was on duty, reported
that he had just received a telephone
message from his wife saying that some
one tried to enter his home by prying
open a window, but she had frightened
him away.
There is no clue to the identity of the
robber or robbers.
Peorln Paprr Says That Horry

Although the many friends of Harry
Sloan may not know it, at his former

of the old school, along with Milton and
those fellows, and the Peoria Herald

shaltown people always did knovi-, or
rather they have known since the great
burlesque circus, that Sloan was a good
grafter and wrote excellent circus ad
vertlsements, but they were not aware
that his versatility ever turned "to
verse." The Peoria paper says:
"The writer has always maintained
that Peoria lost a true poet when
Harry Sloan moved out to Iowa. At the
same time it has been just as steadily
maintained that the Hawkeye state, in
our loss, gained a grocer with few

whose birth the gods sm.ied. Almost
with his first breath he was made
member of the Don't Worry Club, and
he has never lost his standing in the
lodge. He was gifted with the brain to
plan, the physical endurance to per
form and the genial disposition which
makes his presence sunshine and his
absence a reason for regret. His ver
satlllty in the literary line Is shown by
the wide divergence betwixt his rollick

ship— Officers, Future, Pros

The Institution of W. H. Sletzer divis
ion, No. 1, uniform rank. K. O. T. M.,
was perfected Tuesday night in the
Woodmen of the World hall, under the
direction of Col. W. H. Smith, of Oma
ha, aide on the staff of Maj. Gen. W. H.
Scott. About thirty of the original
charter membership of sixty-two were
present, and after the ceremonies of in
stitution were over officers were ln»
stalled as follows
Past Captain Mayor Frank G.
Captain—Clyde W. Morse.
First Lieutenant—H. F. Peterson.
Second Lieutenant—Jasper H. Fisher.
Record Keeper—P. A. Hawley.
Finance Keeper—J. H. Brunner.rv
Chaplain—W. O. Rice.
Tli«- executive council, which is com
posed of J. H. Brunner, chairman B. B.
Schollenbf rger, Dr. N. E. Mighell, I. S.
Finkle and George Moehrl, was also in­|
stalled. The uniform committee was
named in the. persons of J. H. Brunner.
f. S. Finkle and P. A. Hawley.
This is the first division of uniform
rank of the Maccabees to be installed
in the state, which is a compliment to
the city in Itself. Another noteworthy
fact is that the charter membership oi
Sletzer division is the next largest ol
any division ever organized in the
world, and. with the dispensation that
allows the charter to extend for a period
of Fixty days from Tuesday night, it if
more than probable that the record ol
about seventy-five members, held by a
New York division, will be surpassed.
There are five other divisions being
organized in the state at present—at
Council Bluffs, Sioux City, Des Moines.
Davenport and Waverly. If the plans
are successfully carried out in each in
stance a new regiment will be formed,
to be known as the Fifth. At present
the Marshalltown division will be a
part of the Fourth regiment, and will bt
more definitely designated as Division
No. 1. First battalion. The election in
the Fourth regiment will be held on Oct.
16, at Sioux Falls. S. D. At that time
the unanimous choice for major of the
First battalion will be Mr. J. H. Brun

Discussed Below.
The question of obtaining a. high
grade food at a moderate price is of in
terest to every housekeeper and' pro
Some food is so bulky that even at a
very low price per pound the actual
food value is so ".ittle that it is really
expensive on the other hand, there are
concentrated foods, like, for Instance,
the famous breakfast food known as
Gape-XutB," that sell at 15 cents per
pound, but yield in food units of so
much value that but little of the food
should be used at a time, and in reality,
when properly used, the expense is
about 1 cent a meal.
It is a common mistake to use too
much of the food Grape-Nuts. Its taste
Is crisp, with the delicate sweet flavor
of grape sugar, and one is Inclined to
eat double the proper quantity. A lady
writes from Indianapolis, Mrs. A. L.
Wilson: "We have been using your
Grape-Nuts now for two or three weeks
I can not tell you how much 1 find it
has benefited me. My husband is a
physician and he not only uses it at
each meal, but likes It at bedtime."
Using the food in this way, some
families might be impressed with the
cost, but. after all, good food, which
keeps the family in prime condition of
health, at a moderate cost, is very
much more profitable, so far as dollars
and cents are concerned, than to make
use of low-grade, bulky foods and from
time to time call in a physician to help
The use of "Orape-Nuts" in reasona
ble quantity costs 1 cent per meal, and
the food stands without an equal in point
of nutrition and value in building up
the nerve centers and tissues of the
body. The crisp, delicate, sweet taste
comes from the grape sugar, which is
produced by the transformation of ihe
starch of the cereals, and this grape
sugar is presented to the system ready
for immediate assimilation. Grape
Nuts are sold by all flrst-clas# grocers
and made by the Postum Company at
their factories in Battle Creek, Mich.
