The affair was in the nature of a shower. Point euchre was played at six tables. Prizes were awarded to Mr. Peter Geier and Mrs. Conroy of New York. Mrs. Clarence Faucet and Mrs. John All That You Need Is in jJheat Whatever you ner 1 to accomplish through food, the ideal foot is whole wheat. Anything else will do less than whole wheat, providir the wheat is digestible. That is the vital point. The verdict of the ages is that whole wheat is the premier food of the world. In no other grain are all the food elements stored in such bal anced form. , So wheat can best do whatever food can accomplish. Anything else however good it may be will do less. But wheat to. be available must be wholy digestible. That is the main reason for Mapl-Flake. We take the finest whole wheat and steam-cook it for six hours. Then we cure it for days a par tial digestive process. Then each separate berry is flaked as thin as paper, and toasted in a heat of 400 degrees . In a flake, that fierce heat can at tack every atom. The particles are separated so the digestive juices can get to them. In any other form that is out of the question. In most forms of whole wheat not one-half will digest That is why our process require 96 hours. That is why our wheat is flaked. The food value in wheat is value less to you unless it is utilized. We prepare the wheat so that everj whit is digestible. Mapl-Flake The Food That's All Food For tne brain or the muscle worker nothing else compares with whole wheat. For the weak or the strong the young or the old this is the utmost in food. What other food does whole wheat will do better. But you must have it digestible: must have Mapl Flake. And this best food tastes best We cook all our wheat in pure maple syrup. That gives our en ticing flavor. Serve it once and you will serve it always as a million homes are doing. You will not be content with a half food when yon know what a whole food means.

ELROD SHIRT CO. ROOSEVELT SHARPLY ANSWERS THE BRIAN LETTER ON HASKELL (Continued F om Page One.) laws by this particular great corpora tion. No Defense Attempted. "As far as I have seen Governor Haskell has not even attempted any thing which can be called a defense of this action of his. It thus appears that his action was as inexcusable as it was wanton, except on the theory that in defiance of the attorney gener al of the state and at all hazards he intended for some reasons of his own to protect the interests of a great cor poration against the law. "It has been suggested on his be half that, after all. he did not favor the Standard Oil company, but mere ly the Prairie Oil ana Gas company. "This claim is disposed of by the testimony of the Standard Oil com pany Itself, taken In the latter part of 1907 in the suit now pending before the United States court at St. Louis against the Standard Oil company, up on being required by the government to put in a list of all companies in which it held stock, or in which its subsidiary companies held stock, re ported among the others the Prairie Oil and Gas company, total " capital $10,000,000, of which the National Transit company's proportion was $9, 999,500; and, furthermore, it appears that the National Transit company had a capital stock of $25,455,200, of which the Standard Oil company own ed $25,451,650. In other words, this Prairie Oil and Gas company was owned, all except $5o6, by the Nation al Transit company and the National Transit company was owned, all ex cept about $3,550, by the Standard Oil company. Taft Honest in Foraker Case. "Now contrast your action in this case of Governor Haskell with Mr. Taft's action as regards Senator For aker, as set forth in his letter of July 20, 1907, which I quoted in my state ment. It was a matter of common no notoriety about Senator Foraker, as it ha3 long been a matter of common notoriety about Governor Haskell, that he was the defender and support er of certain great corporations and, therefore, hostile to the policies for which the administration has stood. There was no such convincing proof against Senator Foraker at that time, however, as there was against Gover nor Hoskell, when, as you say, he was with your approval made treasurer of your compaign committee." "But Mr. Taft refused to be a party to the reno'mlnatlon of Senator For aker, even though it was represented that only thus could he advance his own interests, showing by actual deed3 that his words were true when he said: 'I do not care for the presidency if it has to come by compromise with any one on a matter of principle.' "With a hundred fold clearer evi dence before you as to the connection : of Governor Haskell with the Stand ard Oil than Mr. Taft then had as to ; the connection of Senator Foraker I with any corporation, you neverthe ! less, having secured Governor Has kell as chairman of the committee to write the platform on which you stand, put him in as treasurer of the campaign committee. "Let me add that Governor Has kell's utter unfitness for any public position or trust, or for association with any man anxious to make an ap peal on a moral issue to the American people, has been abundantly shown wholly Irrespective of this action of his In connection with the Standard Oil interests. - "As an American citizen who prizes his Americanism and his citizenship far above any question of partisan-! ship, I regard it as a scandal and a disgrace that Governor Haskell should be connected with the management of any national campaign. "I have not the space in this letter to discuss Governor Haskell's conduct, for example, in vetoing the child labor bill or the fact that his name appears as one of the defendants in various suits brought by the Government to prevent the Creek Indians from hav ing certain of their lands fraudulently taken; or his connection with various other matters of the kind; but let me call your attention to his conduct In prostituting to base purposes the State University, as set forth in an article in the Outlook of Sept. 5 last under the heading of 'Shall the People Rule In Oklahoma?" In this article you will see that Governor Haskell was given full oportunlty to make ev ery explanation and that he made none. Outlook Asks Two Questions. "After setting forth the facts as to Governor Haskell's conduct, the Out look article concludes as follows: "On this state of affairs we have two comments to make and two questions to ask. "The people of Oklahoma are taxed to support their educational institu tions from the primary school to the university. They pay their money to have their children educated. When the politicians use this money to pro mote the interest of a political ma chine or a church sect they are guilty of a breach of trust. "What do the taxpayers of Okla homa think of the use which their public servants are making of the pub lic funds? What do they think about this financial policy the taking of the money due their sons and daughters and diverting it for the benefit of poli ticians, ecclesiastical and civil? "Governor Haskell was one of Mr. Bryan's right-hand men in the Demo cratic national convention, and at Mr. Bryan's instance, has been made treas urer of the Democratic national com mittee. It is appalling to think what would be the results in the educational systems of the Philippines and Porto Rico, in the digging of the t Panama Canal, in the work of irrigation and reforestation, in the administration of the Postoffice, the Interior and Agri cultural Departments, in the appoint ments of foreign ministers and con suls, if the spirit which has actuated the Democratic authorities in the State of Oklahoma should be permitted to take control of the Federal Govern ment at Washington. "Governor Haskell, by actions which speak louder than words, has declared his disbelief in Grover Cleveland's motto, 'A public office is a public trust.' And Mr. Haskell is a representa tive leader in the Bryan Democracy. What does Mr. Bryan think of Mr. Cleveland's principle? What do the American people think of Mr. Has kell's contemptuous reversal of it? "Haskell Unworthy of Position.' "You close your telegram by saying you expect and will demand fair and honorable treatment from those who are in charge of the Republican cam paign. I am not in charge of the cam paign, but am greatly interested in It. I- have shown you above fairly and honorably that Governor Haskell Is a man who, on every account I have named, is unworthy of any position In our public life. No further investiga tion of these facts is required. They are spread on the record before you. I and they were available before Mr. ' Haskell was chosen for his position as treasurer. "You also say you will not permit ! any responsible member of the Repub ! lican organization to misrepresent t tfia 'i i t i t n A nf vrtui. ntirtv In frna rt0H. ent campaign. You will have no diffi culty in getting me to represent It aright, for my sole anxiety is that the people of the country shall understand this attitude clearly, and shall then condemn it as it should be condemned. "You say you have advocated more radical measures against private mo nopolies than either I or my party as sociates have been willing to under take. You have Indeed advocated measures that sound more radical, but j they have the prime defect that In ; practice they would not work. ' "I should not in this letter to you discuss your attitude on this question if you did not yourself bring it up; but as you have brought it up I answer you that in my judgment the measures you advocate would be wholly Ineffect ive in curing a single evil, and. so far as they had any effect at all. would merely throw the entire business of the country into hopeless and utter con fusion. Taft Deeds vs. Bryan Words. "I put Mr. Taft's deeds against your words. I ask that Mr. Taft be judged by all his deeds, for he wishes none of them forgotten. I ask that you be judged both by the words you wish remembered and by the words that seemingly you and your party now de sire to have forgotten. I ask that your present plan for regulating the trusts be judged in connection with your pa6t utterances, that you did not believe in their regulation, but in their destruc- , tion; and again in connection with ! . . . . - .L. . . . , . jour padi uiiemuces iu me eiievi luai only government ownership by a com plicated national and state system of railroads would avail, and again by your past utterances when you props ed to remedy all the sufferings of our people by a depreciated currency. "For several years now I have been steadfastly fighting to secure thor ough going and far-reaching control in the Interest of the public over the great business combinations which do an interstate business. In this effort I have been as much hampered by the extremists, well meaning and other wise, who demanded visionary and im practicable radicalism, or by those oth er extremists, no less dangerous, who stand for the reactionary refusal to remedy any- grievance. "One side, the side on which I am obliged to say you have placed your self, has shown Itself to be just as much the enemy of progress as the oth er. I cold It entirely natural for any great law defying corporation to wish to see you placed in the presidency rather than Mr. Taft. Bryan's Plans Chimerical. "Your plans to put a stop to the abuses of these corporations are whol ly chimerical; how chimerical your last plan is you will yourself see if you read Governor Hughes's speech at Youngstown, O. To recall to your mind what Governor Hughes said. I quote as follows: "When we consider those (proposed) remedies (of Mr. Bryan against tne trusts) we find ourselves journeying In a land of dreams. Again the magi cian of 1851 waves his wand. At a stroke difficulties disappear and the complex problems of modern business are forgotten in the fascination of the simple panacea. "The most important proposal of Mr. Bryan is 'that any manufacturing or trading corporation engaged in inter state commerce shall be required to take out a federal license before it shall be permitted to control as much as "5 per cent of the product in nhich It deals' and no corporation shall be permitted to control more than 50 per cent of the total amount of any pro duct consumed in the United States. "It might be interesting to inquire what is the meaning of 'any product consumed in the United States.' Does it refer to a class of commodities? And if so, how shall the classes be defined? Or does It refer to each separate arti cle of commerce? And if so. what ac count does this proposal take of the skill and initiative of manufacturers who have built up a more or less ex clusive trade in particular articles oft en protected by trade marks, although in most active competition with other articles designed for the same general purpose and seeking the same market? No Embargo on Hones Industry. "In a desire to correct the evils of business are we to place an embargo upon honest endeavor, whose activities present none of the abuses requiring remedies? And if so. what statutory definitions shall be found to be ade quate and Just if we lay down our pro hibition in terms of volume or ratio of business, and not in terms of right and wrong? "If we adopt Mr. Bryan's proposal to what period of production is the pro hibition to apply? Is the excess for a day or for a month to be considered? Or is the average production for a year to be taken? "And what system shall be devised by which suitable Information may be furnished in the nature of danger sig nals along the routes of trade so that the manufacturer may know when he is about to exceed the prescribed ratio? He may justly be required to govern his own conduct, but how shall he be apprised of the conduct of others upon which is to depend his guilt or Inno cence? "Let us repeat that no law-defying corporation has anything to fear from you save what It will suffer In the gen eral paralysis of business which any attempt on your part to reduce to prac tice what you have advocated would bring. This paralysis would affect the wage worker, the farmer, the small business man more than it would af fect the great business man.' But it would affect the latter, too. "Therefore I hope and believe that all far-sighted citizens who wish to see this country prosper in material things will support Mr. Taft. But above all I ask support for him be cause he stands for moral uplift of the nation, because his deeds have mad good his words, and because the poli cies to which , he Is committed are of Immeasurable consequence alike to the honor and the interests of the whole American people.
