(Dont spoil the food by trying to cook It. That work Is done and per fectly done at the factories.) The cream should soften It a bit, but not enough to excuse the teeth from at least a few good earnest "chews" for k . . a l , oia uauie .aiure ienai ricn oiessings to the long chewer. Of course the one with weak teeth can soften the food with milk down to a mush if necessary but the good old Dame doesn't smile - quite so cheerfully on them. You know, children and adults must use the teeth and grind freely to make them grow strong and to preserve them. Then the act of chewing brings down the much needed saliva from the gums and that helps amazingly In the UIK7ativu vi www we, saae The saliva is not so much required with Grape-Nuts, for this food is par tially pre4igested. that Is, the starch ' turned Into a form of sugar in the pro cess of making, and that helps give It th fascinating: flavour.

FASHION'S FADS BY FLORENCE FAIRBANKS. New York, September 10 Earlier in the season there waa a rumor to the effect that wider skirts would be worn In the fall and winter, but this prediction has proved to be unfounded. At least. It Is asserted by those In close touch with the foremost dictators of fashion in Paris, that the vogue for narrow skirts will continue for some time to come. The models recently imported all show narrow .lines, although banded effects are not favored by the best makers. The new fall suitings shown in the shops are extremely beautiful Softness of texture and lightness of weight are combined in new weaves - of wool, of mohair and of permo. . Satin backed with cloth is one of the newest of the French inspirations in fabric and this luxurious material Is used by all the great houses for street-tailored costumes of a dressy character. From Bernard comes a street suit of seal brown, satin backed with cloth, which Is one of the most important models of this kind shown in America so far. There ia a straight, narrow skirt fitting smoothly over the hips and slightly gathered in at the ankles under a six-Inch band of sealskin. The hip length coat is in the new box shape, which defines the figure very little, and this coat bas a broad collar and revers, and also cuffs of tbe seal-skin. Ratine is a new wool material that is as light and sofe as thistle down, and which is used for smart motor coats 'and for utility suits. Bro cades of great beauty are beig used for handsome limousine and evening coats. Broadcloths and serges hold the palm for coat and skirt costumes, and there are basket weaves and cheviots which answer for rough-weather coats and suits. All of these materials are more or less tfimmed with fur, Hudson seal being tbe most popular fur for bands and border trim mings, though tbe soft, silky moleskin is used on some suits and frocks of light material. . Sergeg and cheviot are the materials that bid fair to occupy first place in the long gllst of autumn fabrics. They are wide, cutting to ad vantage, and the variety of colors and weaves is worthy of favorable consideration. In Paris these dresses that are built on shirtwaist suit lines, will be worn until November without a coat, with perhaps black satin scarfs to protect the chest and throat. These dresses are very at tractive not only for street duty, but also for the house and the place ol business. There is a vogue for striped combined with bands of plain buttons, soutache and black pipings are generally used as trimming. - Black and white is very fashionable this season; ; grays of all sorts are high in favor and black and gray combinations, though somber in tone, are extremely chic. All the shades cf mauve and violet will be in vogue during the autumn and winter, and there is a new prune color which is particularly well liked by the Paris courtiers. Huckleberry is a blue violet shade, which Is shown in cloth and satin fabrics, elderberry being a similar shade with more of the burgundy tone. The coats of many rather somber colored suits are brightened by very Cheerful linings of bright satin or of Persian silk.' Christian EndeavorHome Missions BY REV, S. r CHRISTIAN ENDEAVOR. Prayer Masting Topic For the Week Beginning Sept. 11, 1910. Topic Proud of what? Jer. Ix. 23. 24: I Cor. 1, 18-21; Rom. xll. a Edited by Rev. Sherman H- Kyle. D. 1. The Bible bas a great deal to say about pride our undue self esteem, personal exaltation and a feeling of su periority over others which leads to a haughtiness and a lordliness over others that are contemptible and despicable. No Christian Endearorer should ever possess such a spirit, for it Is one of the most conspicuous of faults-and at tbe same time one of the most unconscious after It. has been allowed Xo fully de velop itself in us. There are many things in " life of which men are proud that, instead of showing them to possess a noble spir it, .only prove that they are unworthy. Jeremiah quotes the Lord as saying. "Let not tbe wise man glory in bis wisdom, neither let tbe mighty man glory In bis might; let not tbe rich man glory in bis riches." And yet bow many are proud of these very things wisdom, power and riches!' But why should they be? Why should a wise man be proud? He Inherits his wis dom or the ability to accumulate wis dom, so why should he be proud of what cost him little or nothing? . More over, in comparison with God, who alone Is all wise, their wisdom Is fool ishness, and "the foolishness of God is wiser than men," says the apostle. The heathen nations, declares the apostle, "thinking themselves to be wise, became fools." Thinking them selves wise, they forgot God, to whom they should have-glorified' God, and thereby they became fools.- Why sbould men-be proud of their physical strength ? Tbey should not, answers the - apostle,- - because tbe weakness of God is - stronger than men." How uncertain physical strength is! Who gave it to man but God, so why should the strong man be proud? And one who only normal ly - strong develops great - strength shortens bis days certainly ' a poor cause for pride. Why should the rich be proud of their riches? Much of it is Inherited from others and is no sign of any un usual talent possessed by the belrs. Moreover, when personally acquired there is no room for pride. Nothing Is more uncertain than riches. Tbey fly from ns, or we die and leave them. The rich fool in the partible of Christ said. "Soul, thou hast much good laid up for many years." but tbe Lord, said: "This night thy soul shall be required of thee. Tbeu whose shall these things be?" What a coutrast between "many years" aud "this night r But how of ten history bas repeated itself In this respect! Men toil and labor to lay up well, neglecting God and tbe higher aims of life. Gold is their God. When they have enough they expect to give up business, become religious and live comfortably for many years. But who ever gets enough, and if here and there a man does aud settles down how long does he live to enjoy it? The least thin; in all the world of which to be proud is money, aud ret here it most exists, and tbe rich are proud and bausbty ami use their money to trample underfoot the poor. Why should men be proud of their birth? Vet how many are! They maj hare lost fortune and everything elst" but high birth, and jet how haughty and proud they remain! . It isfbad enough to be, poor iu this world, but to be "poor and prowl" Is about the limit. Wby sbould men be proud of their personal morality? Yet many are. They are so strictly good that tbey have no need of repentance or of Christ to save them. They expect to be saved on their own merits, but there is no other name trader heaven given to men ' whereby we most b saved" except the name of Jesus. If we should not be proud of our pos sessions or talents, what should we do? Thank God In deep humility for the extra blhvt which all men do not possess. Glorify God and the cruci fied Saviour.

In a decision rendered by the Interstate commerce commission yesterday it was held that Pennsylvania Railroad Company by its rules and practices regarding the dis tribution of cars to coal mines on its lines, had shown undue discrimination against W. F. Jacoby & Co., and Clark Brothers Coal Mining Company, both operators in the bituminous field of Pennsylvania. , It was held that a special allotment of 500 of its system cars daily to a particular operator for the purpose of supply foreign steamships with coal Is discriminatory so long as the cars are not counted against the ratings of the mines during periods of car shortage. It , also was held that the defendant's regulations for the distri bution of coal cars during periods of car shortage were unlawful. The commission ordered the Penn sylvania Railroad to suspend the regu lations by November 1, and directed tha. thereafter it count all system cars against the -rated capacity of the mines.

Wouldn't it be a nice thing for' the "predatory interests" of Theodore Roosevelt had accepted the offer of the presidency of Minnesota university, formally ; alter ed to him by Frank B. Kellogg while the former president waa here to speak at the conservation congress and state fair? Of course the former president has turned down the proposition. A sal ary of $200,000 a year didn't appeal to him for a minute. According to the story told In the corridors of the St. Paul hotel where President Taft and Colonel Roosevelt were guests, Mr. Kellogg, the St. Paul lawyer whom Roosevelt selected as his "trust bust er, told the former president that If he would accept the presidency of the university it would at once receive an endowment fund of $30,000,00 which is within a few millions of tne amount John . Rockefeller has bestowed upon the university of Chicago. But the former president couldn't see it. He considers that he has work cut out for him. And there is the matter of the presidency of the United States at a salary of $75,000 a year. It is understood that James J. Hill, the grand old man of the northwest." is the one who would, supply the $30, 000,000, providing MrRoosevelt would take the presidency. Mr, Hill has great wisdom and he knows that no man could bridle the Roosevelt tongue so it is not apparent that; he was All OLD GRAFT WORKED Indiana Cities. Report .One in Which Sympathies Are Played Upon AUTHORITIES ARE ACTIVE A new graft one that works on the sympathy and sentiment of people be reft of relatives or friends, is being operated in Gas Belt cities and postal authorities have set their machinery in motion with a view of catching the guilty party. The scheme which Is said to be worked by a former insurance man, brings in many reports that ', brings In many . ah Ill-gotten dollar, according to reports that have come to the authorities. A fountain pen, one of the cheap variety, that sells for $20 a gross, fig ures in the transaction, : and is the medium ' used 'for' wresting a dollar from' persons, who have lately lost by death a member of the household. The scheme Is worked like this: Close touch is kept on all deaths that occur and the name and residence of the deceased carefully noted. With in the next few days, a ' letter ad dressed to the dead person is sent out This letter goes on to say that the company is sorry to have caused de lay in sending the fountain pen late ly ordered, but the fact is the fac tory In " which they are made is so over-crowded with work that the ship ment could not be filled sooner. The hope, is expressed' in' the 'letter that the delay did 'not cause any serious Inconvenience and that the pen will be found to be just as represented. In the same mail a fountain pen Is sent, and the party to whom it is ad dressed requested to forward by re turn mail the dollar, according to pre vious agreement. " In about ninety-nine cases out of a hundred, the family of the dead per son, still submerged in grief, keep the pen and send the dollar. They figure hat the fountain pen Is probably the last thing that "John" or ."William" ever bought, and their feelings will not permit them to repudiate his last con tract. So the pen worth probably 15 cents is -carefully laid away and a dol lar mailed to the grafter, who accord ing to- reports is doing a land office business. , ' . : Enough Said.

CL Tteketa sold ffcfooggL scheming to get Roosevelt out of the fight on the "interests" In offering hint the presidency of Minnesota's great . university. - Mr. Hill and the former president , are great friends. Of course it is na tural that a man who' is at the head of sreat railroad organisation would not agree witn some of tbe policies oi voi. Roosevelt, but as man ao man - they like each other. After shaking hands with James Wilson, secretary of agri culture, the first man Roosevelt recog nised when he stepped on the plat form to speak at the 'conservation -congress was Mr. Hill. Their hand-, shake was bearty and both smiled their pleasure . at meeting again. ' It was the first time the veteran railroad builder has seen Col. Roosevelt since the hunter returned from the jungles of Africa and the courts of Europe, Mr. Hill gave no trace of his feeling , when the Colonel told the audience that the 'people must prevent the rail roads from grabbing all the terminals along the river fronts when the pro posed river improvements are carried out and the shipping on the ' great streams of the United States Is again resumed. , But" other utterances seem ed to please Mr, Hill and- he clapped i his hands enthusiastically as any ot the Roosevelt followers. "St. Paul could afford to give Roose velt $100,000 a year, Minneapolis an other $100,000,: the state of Minnesota a third hundred thousand, and the uni versity could another such sum. if the former chief executive would take the presidency , of the university, said a St. Paul man, but even that wouldn't tempt him. ' Col. Roosevelt always is pretty wide awake, -but when his private car was switcher into the station in Minneap olis he was still asleep and the re ception committee and a great crowd had to wait for him. The trip has been one of the most strenuous the Colonel had had and he had given orders the night before that he was not to be disturbed until the last minute.
