Pillsbury’s
New Health Flour . . .
|
Oermos flour is manufactured after a special process known only
to ourselves, and is guaranteed by the Pillsbury-W ashbum Hour .Mtg.
Co. It contains a wealth of phosphates, over four times as much as
ordinary flour, and is therefore a great brain nourisher.
As a strength-giver it is twice as good. It embodies all the nt>ur is.i
ment of wheat, and that is all that is necessary to anybody. It con
tains all the malt extract and pepsin of the wheat germ, and therefore
is very easily digested.
Germos is as good a health flour as Pillsbury’s Best is a
white flour; that is the best that can be sm.d of it.
Germos is something you ought to try.

Denver, Colo., May 20.—The follow

the International Gold Mining Con

"LINCOLN, Neb.. May 17.
"To Irwin Mahon, Rsq.. Denver Colo.
“My Dear Sir:—Your favor at hand.
It will not be possible for me to attend
the convention called in the interests
of gold mining, owing to the fact that
engagements already made cover these
dates. I thank you for the invitation,
and trust that, the convention will be
successful in arousing a greater inter
est in both gold and silver mining. I
do not think that the interest of the
two metals should be separated even
in convention.
"Yours truly,
"W. J. BRYAN.”
Mahon immediately sent another
letter to Mr. Bryan, explaining that the
convention is to he in the interests of
mining generally, and not in the inter
est of monometallism, and assuring
him of a sincere and hearty welcome
from the people if he should find it

A Mt'U FOUNTAIN.
Another Great Natural Curiosity Added to
Southern California’s l ist.
San Luis Obispo. Cal., May 20.—
About 7:30 last evening residents of
the country adjacent to Moro Bay
were startled by a report which begun
like the low rumble of thunder and
ended with a somewhat louder blast.
A few days ago a similar report was
heard and a mud geyser appeared in
the small arm of Moro Bay, just op
posite the town site of El Moro. This
geyser has formed a small island,
which for a week past has been the
wonder of the people of the country
and has been visited hv a great many.
Following the report last evening a
second geyser sprung into existence
about 200 yards distant from the first,
and a litlte farther inland. This last
geyser is an exact counterpart of the
one formed last Friday night. It is
only a short distance from the shore
and people who gathered there could
plainlv see the small iiJ*»nil of dark
mud and sand which had ’/-on formed.
Like the eruption of last Friday night
the surface of the second island hears
evidence of having a small crater,
from which large quantities of the
blackest mud are slowly arising.

HER AMBITION.
The family clergyman was softly patting
the little curly ringletted head, as he lls
tened to the fond mother’s praise of her
child's rapid advance • through the vale
of knowledge.
“And so you are very fond of going to
school?'' he questioned the child.
“Ycth. sir. I is.” lisped Elsie, in reply.
“And what are you going to be after
the school days are over?''
“Rut they won't be over until I go
through college.” said the child, ".and
that will not be for a long, long time.''
“To college, eh? A regular little new
woman," said the clergyman, smilingly.
“And what profession do you mean to
study for at college?"
"1 wanth to be a lawyer." said Elsie.
