Men's heavy mittens One of the saddest, most tragic deaths that has ever occurred in our midst was that of Robert Grandstaff which occurred suddenly on Satur day afternoon about four o'clock at home in the east part of town. Mr. Grandstaff was taken ill during the night Friday yet he kept up Sat urday forenoon and tried to go to fiis shop but could only go a little Way. He returned home and laid down and in the afternoon, feeling much worse medical aid was sum moned. Despite the best of care and skill and tender nursing the end came suddenly and the young wife, who was herself very ill, was bereft of affectionate,, indulgent hus aii5 the mother, who was with him, of a kind, considerate son. Be sides these two there are four sisters and a brother who survive. Mes dames Graham and Hill, of near Davis City, Mrs. Lutz of Leon and a sister residing in Wisconsin and one brother Fred Grandstaff. Robert Grandstaff was just in the prime of young manhood, being but twenty-seven years old the 1 "th of last January, lie was an energetic industrious young man, of pleasant agreeable disposition, well liked by all who knew him.

He was in apparently good health before his sudden illness and his death was due to apoplexy. The funeral services were held Sunday morning at 10 o'clock at the home. Rev. Goodsell conducting a very im pressive service full of comfort to the sorrowing ones. Several appro priate songs were sung by the choir and a number of lovely bouquets were sent in, tokens of neighborly kindness, sympathy and respect. The body was then taken to Davis City for interment. Monday after noon the mother and one of, the sis ters, Mrs. Graham returned from Davis City to remain with the stricken wife until she fully recovers from her illness when she will ac company the mother home. One es pecially sad and touching feature in this young man's death is the fact that his wife is left absolutely alone, with no relatives of her own and the deepest, most heartfelt sympathy of the whole community goes out to her in her bereavement and loneii ness. May the all-wise father grant Sir James Crichton Browne, LL.D.—F.R.S. of London, gives the best reasons for eating more Quaker Oats In an article published in the Youth's Companion of Septem ber 23rd, 1909, Dr. Browne, the great medical authority on foods, says, about brain and muscle building— "There is one kind of food that seems to me of marked value as a food to the brain and to the whole body throughout childhood and adolescence (youth), and that is oatmeal. "Oats are the most nutritious of all the cereals, being richer in fats, organic phosphorus and lecithins." He says oatmeal is gaining ground with the well-to-do of Great Britain. He speaks of it as the mainstay of the Scottish laborer's diet and says .it pro duces a big-boned, well-devel oped, mentally energetic race. His experiments prove that good oatmeal such as Quaker Oats not only furnishes the beat food for the human being, but eating it strengthens and en larges the thyroid gland—this gland is intimately connected with the nourishing processes of the body. In conclusion he says— "It seems probable therefore that the bulk and brawniness 0! the Northerners (meaning the Scotch) has been in some measure due to the stimulation of the thyroid gland by oatmeal porridge in childhood." The Scotch eat Quaker Oatf because it is the best of all oat* meals, Men's piece garments We're sorry if you've tried other medicines and they failed.

C. Stempel & Co. A delicate surgical operation was performed on Charles Arnold, of Lenox, Iowa, recently at the Epworth hospital, St. Joseph, by Dr. Geiger, assisted by Dr. W. J. McGill. While picking apples the young man fell from a ladder and his spinal column was fractured. The operation con sisted of the removal of nearly two inches of the spine and the wiring together of the two ends. It was necessary to make the backbone shorter so that when it grows to gether the back will not be humped. "When the anaesthetic was given Arnold for the operation he was writhing in agony," said Dr. Geiger. "His nerve center was broken, and he had totally lost control of himself. I .regard the fact that the young man lived until he reached St. Joseph as a miracle. When the spine was con nected, we also adjusted the nerves and back muscles, so that it is pos sible for him to recover. I consider his condition as highly satisfactory." Arnold was conscious the second day following the operation for the first time since the accident, and he was able to lift his head. The injured man is twenty-eight years old and conducts a general store at Lenox. "Dr. Thomas' Eclectric Oil is the best remedy for that often fatal dis ease—croup.

Within its borders are 284,886 farms which average 120 acres to the farm. The improved land to each farm averages seventy-five acres or sixty-two and one-half per cent. The yield of the land is enormous under the ordinary method of farming, but if the entire state were farmed in a scientific man ner, as is done where land is scarce and more expensive, it would be dif ficult to estimate what the value of the crops would be.
