The officials of the company informed the- Commissioners that they would co-op erate with the city in repairing all pavements that are in bad condition.

One hundred thousand copies In all have been printed. The Supervisors' Printing Commit tee is averse to permitting the Health Board to print the names of its mem ben on the pamphlet about to be is sued, entitled "Health Hints for the Household." Deputy Health Officer Levy appeared before the committee yesterday and said that the pamphlets were printed, but the board desired to print on the cover thereof the names of the members. The commit tee cited the charter, which prohibits the names of city officials on station ery, and also objected because it would in effect be an advertisement of the doctors on the board. The com mittee was inclined to permit the name of Health Officer Ragan to ap pear on the pamphlet, but Levy In sisted that all the names be printed. The matter was taken under advise ment by the committee, which will. render its decision to-day. Snper\-isors Object to Free Advertis ing Sought by Physicians Through Pamphlet for Distribution.

Special Dispatch to The Call. After Barber had received his money from his credulous agricultural stu dents, of whom it is said he had six or eight, he absconded, and his where abouts are not known to the Federal officials. He had advertised in cer tain newspapers In London that he waa conducting an agricultural college at Mountain View where farming and fruit growing would be taught practic ally, and he received many remunera tive replies. Shortly after Barber's sudden disappearance the United States Immigrant Bureau at this city instituted an investigation and the matter was reported to United States District Attorney Woodworth. It is further asreed upen and promised by the party of the second part that he will ! ¦•;» tits lin •¦ ? to such work as shall bi in quired o! him hy the party of the first part, and in all matters pertaining to the work ic quired of him <io as the party of the fl'ft part or his representative directs and orders. Also <n the matters of and In such mat ers a^i punctuality at meals and the hour of re tiiinK at night the party of the second part promises and aerees to conform to the rules of ths party of the first part's establishment. Inwood and Parez paid Barber one hundreds pounds sterling each on No vember 2, 1903, and each contracted to pay fifty pounds sterling additional not later than May 2, 1901. In return Bar ber agreed to furnish them board, lodging and washing at his home at Mountain View, California, "for a period of not less than one year nor more than eighteen months — the exact tSme to be decided by Barber." He also agreed to furnish them with in struction during the period mentioned in the different branches of etc., "engaged in by the party of the first part." He also guarantees "at the expiration of one year or eighteen months employment at a salary of not less than $50 per month with board and lodging." The contract recites: By direction of United States District Attorney Marshall B. Woodworth, As sistant United States Attorney Charles M. Fickert filed five complaints yes terday in the United States District Court against George W. Mosher and H. C. Barber for violating the act of Congress approved March 3, 1903. en titled "An act to regulate the immi gration of aliens into the United States." Mosher is a contractor and builder doing business at Palo Alto. There are three complaints against him to recover an aggregate penalty of $3000 and costs as provided for by the act. There are two complaints against Barber to re cover an aggregate penalty of 52000 and costs. It Is alleged that Mosher on April 3, 1904, went to "Windsor, Nova Scotia, Canada, and entered into an express parole contract with Edgar C. Burgess, Everett Burgess and Warren E. Harvie to employ them as carpenters at Palo Alto at wages of $4 a day, and that under this contract they went to Palo Alto and worked as carpenters. The complaint against Barber charges him with having made a writ ten contract with John Inwood and George Neaves Parez in London, England, on November 1, 1903, where by they were eventually to be em ployed on Barber's farm at Mountain View as farm hands at wages of $&0 per month each. The contracts are identical, with the exception of the names. They contain the following conditions: HEALTH BOARD MEMBERS WANT NAMES IX PRINT Family Is Off on Vacation and She and Her Husband Take Possession of House Business Will Occupy Two Days and the Third Will Be Spent in Sightseeing Mountain View Farmer Absconds After Having Started a Bucolic School PAPEES AEE SUBMITTED KETUBNS TO OLD H0MK by Mr. Reeves in a short but apt speech, In which he took occasion to give the lion's share of the credit for the success of the work of his office and of the dinner to his very efficient staff and his fellow committeemen. The Duke of Marlborough, in propos ing "The Colony of New Zealand," The usual loyal toasts were proposed by the chairman and enthusiastically responded to. All of the speeches were commendably brief and the formal pro ceedings were over by 10 o'clock. This gave the company ample opportunity for exchanging views ana Indulging in reminiscences. The Hon. H. F. Wigram, mem ber of the New Zealand Legislative Council, gave the toast. "The Imperial Forces of the Empire," and referred to the part which New Zealand tocrk in the Boer war, when she supplied no less than ten contingents — a larger number in proportion to the population probably than any other colony of the empire. The increase in the subsidy for the British navy, he said, "indicat ed the sympathy of the colony with the imperial forces, while the preferential tariff in favor of British goods showed a desire to meet the mother country." Mr. Wigram was followed by the Earl of Glasgow, who said: "The mag nificent way in which New Zealand came to our assistance would never be fcrrgotten." The British Australian of London, in its issue of June 30, gives a full and interesting report of the "annual New Zealand dinner," held on June 23 in that city at the Trocadero restaurant. There was a large and distinctly rep resentative gathering of New Zealand ers and a number of distinguished guests, among whom were the Duke of Marlborough, Under Secretary of State for the Colonies, ana the Earl of Glasgow, formerly Governor of New Zealand. The Hon. W. Pember Reeves, agent general and chairman of the committee, received the guests on entering and presided at the table at which were seated over 200 persons. With the Duke of Marlborough as practically the guest of the evening the chairman made a new departure In the toast list and instead of giving "The Colony of New Zealand," as usual, left that toast to the Under Secretary for the Colonies and replied to it himself in an incomparable manner, without introducing any subject of a contro versial character.

Railroad Man Missing. 9 - GRAPE-XUTS. Every Brain-worker wants a strong 1 , keen thinker in his HEAD QUARTERS. Many successful men and women regularly eat the brain-making food — GRAPE-NUTS. For the Phosphates necessary for this purpose are intentionally supplied in GRAPE-NUTS in liberal quantities and will positively rebuild the worn out brain and nerve centers. , The Inventor of GRAPE-NUTS About 10 years ago found himself badly off from overwork and weak digestion. He experimented about two years, seeking to perfect a food that would contain the elements required by Nature to rebuild the depleted nerves and brain. BUT such food must be made easy of digestion, else the weakened organs of the body could not extract the re- building elements. Finally success came, after dozens of experiments and failures. The right parts of Wheat a^nd Barley were se- • lected, skillfully blended in the right proportions. Subjected for hours to moisture, then hours more to slow heat, gradually producing chang es and mechanically digesting the fool. Further processes follow, until the food is finally delivered fully cooked., pre-digested and ready for instant service with a little rich cream. Years have gone by and experience has shown that the now famous brain food planned for a purpose, accom- _— It does supply pre-digested food that a babe or an atlilete can digest. It does furnish the nerve centers and brain with the delicate, microscopic particles of natural Phosphate of Pot- ash which combines with Albumen to make the gray matter filling the nerve centers and brain. It does prove itself to users in a very few da vs. ' >>» ________ * It is known to, and used by, our most famous' Physicians, Teachers, Scientists, Capitalists..
