Op position parties- In, the dirma have united in addressing an Interpolation to the ministers of the interior and jus tice regarding the reported flogging of political prisoners in Siberia.

That Suit for Libel Against the Postum Cereal Co., Ltd., Gave a Splendid Chance to Bring Out Facts .A disagreement about -advertising arose -with a "Weekly5 Journal " ' ' following it an attack on us appeared in their edit orial columnssneering at the claims we made, particularly regarding Appendicitis. '"' We replied through the regular papers and the "weekly" thought we hit hack rather too hard and there upon sued for libel. The advertisement the 'f weekly 7 attacked us about 'claimed that in many cases of appendicitis an operation could be avoided by discontinuing indigestible food, wash- ing jut the bowels and taking a predigested food Gfrape- ISuts. . f Observe we said MANY jases -not all. uv Touldn't that knowledge be a comfort to those who fear a surgeon's knife as they fear death? ,f ' - The "weekly" writer said that was a lie. We replied that he was ignorant of the facts. - He was put on the stand and compelled to admit he was not a Dr. and had -jio medical knowledge of appendi citis and never investigated to find out if the testimonial betters to our Co., were genuine. A famous surgeon testified that when an operation was required Grape-lsTuts would not obviate it. True. r We npver claimed that when an operation was re quired Grrape-jSTuts would prevent it. - ' The surgeon testjefied bacteria germs helped 'to bring on an attack and bacteria was grown by undigested food frequently. We claimed and proved by other famous experts that - undigested food was largely responsible for appendicitis. We showed by expert testimony that many cases are healed without a knife, but by stopping the use -of food which did not digest, and when food was required, again it was helpful to use a predigested food which did not over tax the weakened organs of digestion. J When a pain in the right side-appears it is not always necessary to be rushed off toa Hospital and, at the risk of death, be cut. Plain common sense shows the better way is to stop food that evidently has not been digested. Then, when food is required, use an easily digested ,foyd; Grape-ltfuts or any other if you-know it to be predi gested (partly digested before taking). We brought to Court analytical chemists from Itfew York, Chicago and Mishawaka, Ind., who swore to the analysis of Grrape-!Nuts and that part of the starchy part of the wheat and barley had been transformed intp sugar, ,the kind of sugar produced in the human body by digesting starch (the large part of food). Some of the State chemists brought - on by the "weekly" said Grape-Nuts could not be called a "predi- gested'j food because not all. of it was digested outside' the bodv. The other chemists said any food which ha4 been partly or half digested outside the body was commonly known as "predigested." Splitting hairs about the meaning of a word. It is sufficient that if only one-half of the food is -"predigested," it is easier on weakened stomach and bowels than food in which no part is predigested. To show the facts we introduce Dr. Thos. Darlington, former chief of the K Y. Board of Health, Dr. Ealph W. Webster, chief of the Chicago Laboratories, and Dr B, Sachs ,2T. Y. If we were a little severe in our denunciation of a writer, self-confessed ignorant about appendicitis and its cause, it is possible the public will excuse us, in view of the fact that our head, Mr. C. W. Post, has made a lifetime study 'of food, food digestion and effects, and the con clusions are indorsed by many of the best medical authori ties of the day. Is it possible that we are at fault for suggesting, as a Father and Mother might, to ,one of the family who an nounce a pain in the side: ""Stop using the food, greasy meats, gravies, mince pie, cheese, too much starchy food, &c, &c, which bas not been digested, then when again ready for food use Grape-Nuts because it is easy of digestion?" Or should the child be at once carted off to a hospital and 'cut? We have known of many cases wherein the approach ing signs of appendicitis have disappeared by the sugges tion being followed. ISTo one better appreciates the value of a skilful physi--iah when a person is in the awful throes of acute appendi citis, but "an ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure." , Just plain old common sense is helpful even nowadays. This trial demonstrated Grape-rTuts food is pure be- . yond question. It is partly predigested. Appendicitis generally has rise from undigested food. It is not always necessary to operate. It is best to stop all food. When ready to begin feeding use a predigested food. ? It is palatable "and strong in Nourishment. It will pay' fine returns in health to quit the heavy breakfasts and lunches and use less food but select food certainly known to contain the elements nature requires to sustain the body' May we be permitted to suggest a breakfast of fruit, Grape-Nuts and cream, two soft boiled esrgs, and some hot toast and cocoa, milk or Postum. The question of whether Grape-Nuts does or does not contain the elements which nature requires for the nour ishment of the brain, also of its purity, will be treated in later newspaper articles. Good food is important and its effect on the body is also important. . x "There's a Reason" Postum Cereal Co., Lid. Battle Creek, Mich. , '
