When a little human machine (or a large one) goes wrong, nothing is so im portant as the selection of food which will bring it around again. e . "The doctor, and I also.'* writes an Il linois woman, "consider that we owe the life of my little four-year-old niece to Grape-Nuts food. “From the time of her birth her stom ach was so weak she could not digest ‘ milk or any food we could think of. al though we tried about all the Infant b oods known. The doctor gave me no ■. hope—called the trouble intestinal con sumption. "At IS months the child could barely Sit alone, her body was so weak, and her brain did not seem to be properly de veloped.

JAPANESE SEND GOODWILL TOU.S.I COUNT KOMVBA IN ADDRESS TO| DIET SAYS THAT NATION RE- 1 LIES ON AMERICAN JUSTICE FOR FRIENDSHIP. ’’ * * z i TOKIO. Feb. I—Speaking before the tower house of the diet today. Foreign , Minister Komura outlined the foreign pol- | tries of Japan tn a carefully worded speech delivered before a full and attent ive house. The opening sentence gave the keynote of the entire country when Count Komura said: "The foreign policy of this empire should have as an object j the maintenance of peace and the devel- , opment of national resources." With reference to Great Britain, he said events of far reaching importance in the i relations of the two countries with other i powers happily and uniformly contributed ! to the consolidation of the general peace f of eastern Asia, which was one of the < principal objects of the agreement. The alliance, be continued, had stead ily gained strength and solidity and today stood on an enduring foundation. The re lations of the Japanese with Russia, he went on. were constantly increasing in intimacy and both nations were scrupu lously observing the spirit and letter of the compact governing their attitude in the Pacific, while the policies of both governments were yielding momentous re sults. Germany and France Touching on the relations of the Japan ese with France and Germany, he said they were on an equally satisfactory; footing and that the declaration of Chan cellor von Buelow in the reichstag clear ly manifested the frank and friendly at titude and complete accord of Germany and Japan in the far east. He expressed the sincere hope that the good relations with Germany should con tinue. Concerning China, Count Komura said: "It ir evident that, in view of our im portant and close relations, the two na tions should draw ties of sincere friend ship and mutual consideration. It is grat ifying to note that some long pending questions have been satisfactorily adjust ed recently, and the solution of othe» problems is not altogether impossible, if they are treated in a spirit of concilia tion and accommodation. Japan is watch ing naturally with keen interest and sym pathy the progress of reforms in China, and it Is our earnest hope that the states men of China will preserve domestic or der and tranquillity. "We have Invariably made it a guidin A rule to observe the open door principle, with equal opportunity to China, and we are firmly determined to adhere to that principle with unswerving loyalty." Relations With U. 8. The foreign minister dwelt at length upon the relations between Japan and America. He said: "The friendship of Japan and the Unit ed States is traditional, and it is abso lutely essential that both maintain unim paired those sentiments of amity and ex tend and strengthen them by every means Notwithstanding the perfect ac cord which has always existed regarding the aims of the two countries tn the far east and in the Pacific, it appears that doubts have been entertained in some quarters concerning the sincerity of the .intentions. - - • - "In order to remove this misunder standing the twq governments have deem ed it advisable to exchange diplomatic notes, officially announcing a common policy, which I am convinced will be largely instrumental in preserving the repose of the Orient. "With regard to the question of legisla tion unfavorable to the Japanese now pending in California, the imperial gov ernment is relying upon the sense of jus tice of the American people, together with the friendly disposition of the federal gov ernment, and is confident that the ques tion will not lead to international compli cations. Japan, therefore, being on cor dial terms with all the powers, including those which have not been mentioned, it must be admitted that the maintenance of peace, which is the one principal object of our foreign policy, is now practically, assured and we are enabled to demote our endeavors to the development of our national resources. The first point claim ing our attention is the problem of emi gration. Concentrate in Far East "In view of the new international con ditions assigned to Japan. It has become necessary that our people, instead of scat tering in foreign lands, shall concentrate in the far east, thus securing a united effort, looking to legitimate activities and avoiding everything likely to obstruct the development of International commerce and industry. "These considerations have led the gov ernment to follow an avowed policy with respect to emigrants to Canada and the United States enforcing in perfect good faith the restrictions placed on emigra tion.” Count Komura concluded his speech by announcing that the Imperial government had decided to notify the various powers next year of the termination of existing commercial treaties, to be effective one year after such notice was given. He said that it was the intention of the gov ernment to negotiate new treaties, "un hampered by any unequal engagements.’ The new compacts, he continued will be based entirely upon the principle of re ciprocity with a view to the free develop ment of international commerce. Attack by Hattori The foreign minister’s speech was re ceived with applause by the government side of the house, but Count Hattori, an opposition member. Immediately began a bitter and sensational attack upon the for eign policy of the government. He said that Japan had no determined foreign pol icies and that this was shown by her present attitude toward America, where Japanese were denied an equal opportu nity and were even abused by Americans. The recent events, he said, had proved that the anti-Japanese sentiment in Amer ica had not subsided. The speaker at tacked. particularly, the recently conclud ed agreement between Japan and Ameri ca. saying he believed the Japanese for eign office was forced by the American government to sign the agreement in or der to prevent competition by the Japan ese on the Pacific coaMt. He declared that Japan’s dignity had been Injured thereby and he passionately urged the government to enforce the principle of equal opportunity which alone krould solve the question of the rights of Japanese in foreign countries.

WASHINGTON, Feb. 2.-The census bill providing the method and means of tak ing the federal census in 1910 will, it is believed, be disapproved by President Roosevelt, and it is even more certain that an effort will be made in congress to pass the law over his veto. The bill was signed by the speaker last Saturday, but did not reach the president until yesterday afternoon. He has ten' days in whish to approve or disapprove of a measure, failing in which the bill be comes a law without his signature. President Roosevelt is very much op posed to that section of the bill which authorizes congressmen to name the su pervisors and clerks for their respective districts. He thinks these appointments should be controlled by civil service regu lations, for which he ie a great stickier. Census Director North also demands that civil service government in the appoint ment of the supervisors, but his demands were not heeded by congress when it was under consideration. The congressmen themselves are anxious to control the patronage, and It is only natural that they should resist any effort to invoke the civil service regulation in filling the thousands of places to be filled. A superi or’s place will be worth not less than $2,000 per year, and under the law will lie of three years’ duration. Clerkships will not pay so much, but the tenure of office will be for the same length of time. MAN FRO OUT H TO BE IN CABINET WASHINGTON. Feb. B.—lt is stated on reliable authority that a southern man will be secretary of war in the cabinet of President Taft, but the identity of the lucky Individual is at present hidden be hind a cloak of secrecy which cannot be penetrated. Indeed, it is impossible to learn from what state he will come, and the "cabinet makers” are much upset by the report which bear? every earmark of .a genuine straight fipc ‘ "He will be a man whose name has not been mentioned in connexion with the Taft cabinet,” said the high authority who passed out the tip In confidence, "but you may depend upon it that he will be from the south and that his appointment will be pleasing to the southern people, regardless of party politics.” In this connection it is interesting to re call the rumors of Judge Joseph R. La mar’s elevation to the supreme court bench. It may be that Judge Lamar is the southerner who la to got the cabinet place. TAKES ENOUGH POISON ?0 KILL 500 PEOPLE NEW YORK, Feb. 2.—Leon Adler, a salesman, who committed suicide in his apartment in West 78th street last nigh', took enough poison to kill 500 men, ac cording to the physicians. Three vials which had contained cyanide of potas sium were found in his room, with indi cations that he had emptied the con tents of all three into a glass and drank it. Adler was 35 years of age and leaves a widow and two children. That he made certain preparations for death was indi cated by the fact that he had his life in surance policies extended until February 5. In a letter, which he left to his wife and children, he said: . • "You will be better off without me. You will find the notice of the extension of my policies in my pocket." He carried insurance amounting to $7,000. WHITEHOUSE AUTOS BONE OF CONTENTION WASHINGTON, Feb. 2.—The desirabil ity of purchasing automobiles for the white house was the bone of contention in the house of representatives today when Mr. Tawney, of Minnesota, called up the urgent deficiency appropriation bill and moved that the senate amendments be disagreed to and a conferAbce asked. In deference to the wishes of President elect Taft, the bill as ft passed the house, carried an appropriation of $12,000 for au tomobiles. but the senate struck out the provision. Mr. Bartlett, of Georgia, want ed that amendment voted on separately, remarking that he was in favor of it. Mr. Clark, of Missouri, the minority leader, and Mr. Sims, of Tennessee, supported his contention, with the result that the op portunity he desired was afforded. “The incoming president,” said Mr. Tawney, with a significant smile, "desires to abandon the use of horses for reasons you can all understand."

ROOSEVELT WIRES ADVICE TO FRISCO PRESIDENT URGES THAT NO AN TI-JAP MEASURES BE PASSED NOW IN CALIFORNIA —GOVER- NOR OF STATE TALKS. SACRAMENTO, tai., Feb. 3.-Assem blyman A. M. Drew, author of the anti alien bill, that caused President Roosevelt to ask the legislature not to pass anti- Japanese measures at this time, received today a letter from the president. Mr. Drew declined to malfe the missive public, but stated that tlie president was not opposed to his bill prohibiting all alienists owning land. CALIFORNIA SPLIT OVER ANTI-JAF LAWS SAN FRANCISCO, Feb. 2,-With two nations stirred to a fever pitch over the anti-Japanese measures of two states, the people of California are beginning to wake up and ask what it is all about. The outburst of tlje Nevada legislature was unexpected, but it has not caused a great deal of comment in this state. With (he exception of the Asiatic Exclu sion league, no one is engaging in the fight. But the facts are not generally accept ed as an indication that the people of the state are not genuinely interested in the Oriental race problem. The Interest of the agriculturists is indicated by the bill to prohibit the ownership of property which was introduced by A. M. Drew, of Fres no, the center of one of the largest or chard and vineyard districts of the state. The other bills were introduced by Grove L. Johnson, who hails from the Sacramento valley, w..ere the Japanese are regarded with considerable hostility by people of all classes. This feeling has been intensified by the acquisition in late years by the Japanese of large tracts of orchard and garden lands. The criticisms of the eastern press on the anti-Japanese feeling in this state has aroused a storm of protest from the papers of California. The California pa pers complain that the real attitude of the people of this state is not understood east. Most of these papers regard the exclusion of the Japanese to be both nec essary and inevitable and they express the fear that the action of the state legisla ture will retard, rather than adduce this solution of the problem. This morning the San Francisco Chron icle complains that the feeling against California in the east is entirely based on "two main motives, both sordid—one is to keep solid with Japan and thereby promote the sale of cotton goods and kero sene, no matter at what cost to the un fortunate people of the Pacific coast, and the other is to force congress to make heavier appropriations for the army and navy." The Chronicle predicts the exclusion of Japanese by domestic law as the only log ical solution of the problem. In the meantime Governor Gillett and Speaker Walter Stanton, of the assembly are sit ting on the Hd which Is expected to lift at Sabraniento today. Both of these officials say there will be no anti-Japanese measures passed, but the friends of the bills are equally cer tain that they will succeed In passing the bills. REV. J. M.

BEN L JONES SHOOIS HIMSELF AS RESULT OF SUPPOSED ILL HEALTH AND DESPONDENCY, PROMINENT AND WEALTHY MAN PVTS BULLET IN BBAIN. * •’ z • -it i MACON, Ga., Feb. 2.—Hon. Ben L. Jones, one of the wealthiest men in Ma con and probably the best kfibwn man in the city, killed himself In his bedroom at his residence, 864 Mulberry street, this morning at 8:15 o’clock, by shooting him self through the temple with a 38-caliber revolver. Mr. Jones’ act is attributed to a state of melancholia, resulting from an attack of jaundice from which he has been suffering for the past two weeks. Yesterday he was at his place of busi ness, but was feeling badly, and all dur ing last night he suffered continually. This morning he agreed with Paul E. Wilkes, his secretary, to take a trip to Cuba, starting next week, but Mr. Wilkes had not left him ten minutes when the report of a pistol was heard from his room. Members of the family, who rushed In. saw him lying across the bed with the smoking pistol beside him. Physicians were hurriedly summoned, but life was extinct when they arrived. The verdict of the coroner's jury was that Mr. Jones came to his death at his own hands, while in a depressed state of mind brought on by an attack of jaun dice. Was Wealthy Man Mr. Jones’ financial affairs were in splendid condition. He owned more prop erty, perhaps, than any man in Macon or Bibb county, and none of it was incum bered whatever. The announcement of his death has cre ated profound sorrow in Macon, for he was universally popular with all classes of people. He is survived by his wife and by two children, Miss Josephine Jones and Mr. W. Henry Jones, who was a business partner with his father. Mr. Jones was a member of the Bibb county board of education, county road commission, and had served several terms as aiderman. He was prominently men tioned as a candidate for mayor in the coming election. Headed Macon Fair He was president of the Macon Fair association, and last year when the fair was organized he personally guaranteed every expense of the association, and as a result it was a great success. The meeting of the directors of the as sociation, which was to have been held tomorrow, has been postponed on account of Mr. Jones’ death. Dr. W. J. Little, Mr. Jones’ attending physician, stated shortly after Mr. Jones’ death, that he had been in a very de pressed state for several days. The fact that his mother recently died with jaun dice seemed to be preying on his mind, and the further fact that he did not seem to improve to any extent, made mat ters worse. At times he would be cheerful, but at other times he would be decidedly blue. He was up and around his room sev eral times this morning before he shot himself, but complained of feeling badly. Mr. Jones had a wide acquaintance in Atlanta and owned considerable property there. Conducted Big Stock Yard Ben L. Jones was born in Macon 45 years ago. He celebrated his 45th birth day several days ago. He was a mem ber of the Bibb county board of educa tion. His principal business at the time of his death was a big stock yard, which was conducted under the name of Jones & Jones, his son being a partner in the firm. He owned property on nearly every busi ness block in Macon, and many fine coun try farms. He also owned large blocks of stocks and bonds. He made most of his money in the warehouse and supply busi ness in East Macon. He sold this busi ness out two years ago and came across the river and built the big stock yard and hotel combined which is located at the corner of Third and Pine streets. It covers over two acres of ground. Son of Locomotive Engineer Mr. Jones was the son of W. H. Jones, who was for a number of years a loco motive engineer on the Central railroad, but who left the railroad business and started the warehouse in East Macon. Mr. Jones was a graduate of Mercer and of the business college at Poughkeepsie, N. Y. His estate is valued at $450,000. Recently he had bought the old Woifolk place, where Tom Woifolk killed nine people, and had fitted it up in magnificent stlye for a country club, largely for auto mobiles. NAPOLEON’S HORSE FOUND IN CELLAR PARIS. Feb. 3.—A straw-stuffed white horse, which has been found in the cellars of the Louvre turns out to be Napoleon’s famous charger Vizier, presented to him by the sultan of Turkey. An examination of the records shows that the horse died in 1826 on the estate of deChaulaite, the emperor’s equerry. The latter was forced to fly for a po litical crime and his effects were sold. Napoleon’s horse, which had been stuffed, was acquired by an Englishman, D. W. Clarke, who presented it to M. J. Graves, of Manchester, who in turn donated it to the Manchester Natural History society. At the dissolution of the society in 1868 the horse was forwarded to Napoleon 111. and was relegated to the cellers of the Louvre. It was forgotten during the crit ical period preceding the downfall of the second empire.

WASHINGTON, Fab. 2.—ln order to feat the confirmation of W. D. Crum’s appointment as collector of the port at Charleston, it is stated today that Sen ator Tillman, ft necessary, will conduct a "one-man" filibuster until congress ad journs on March 4th, even at tjie risk ts his health, whieh is none too good. The senator proposes to talk the confir mation to death, which he may easily do if his strength doesn’t desert him. Under the rules of the sepate, no proposition edn be put to a vote so long as a senator wants to be heard, and there is no way by which the remarks of a member can be limited. Senator Tillman has requested a num ber of Democrats to help him with his filibuster, speaking from one hour to half a day each, and he has enlisted the aid of a number, although it appears that many Democrats doubt the wisdom of continuing the fight on Crum. But, w#h Tittle help, Tillman should be able to hold up the confirmation until Taft is inaugurated, and unless he changes his mind, he will do tins. The senate does not hold an executive session every day, and this fact will ope rate to the hand of Tillman, as the Crum matter can be considered only in execu tive session. Calls for Quorum After Senator Tillman had taken the floor, he called for a quorum, and after the roll call, he announced that be pro posed to see that a quorum was main tained throughout the day. The vice president called his attention to a ruling, made in the last hours of the last session of congress, to the effect that business must not intervene be tween calls for a quorum, and that a speech would not be regarded us "busi ness.” This announcement provoked a discus sion of the rule, but throughout the af ternoon no occasion arose to call forth a ruling on that question. Mr. Tillman had received communica tions from various commercial bodies of Charleston, in opposition to the confirma tion of the Crum nomination, and read them to prove that his protest against Crum fully represented the popular senti ment in Charleston. Other Questions Up The Japanese and Chinese questions, now causing discussion on the Pacific coast, were referred to, and Mr. Bacon, of Georgia, made a general inquiry of the Pacific coast renators as to their at titude toward any proposition to appoint a Chinaman as collector of customs of San Francisco. There was a very general discussion of the race problem in which several of the senators on the Democratic side took part. Senator Money occupied nearly an hour and reviewed the history of the races, to sustain his position that the superiority of the white race marked it to dominate in matters of government. About fifty senators remained in ths chamber throughout the session. The nomination will come up today, and Mr. Tillman, it is expected, will continue his remarks.
