Both his legs are withered and useless, but the Leicester Cripples' Guild has provided him with a two wheeled pedalless machine, with a padded tube covering the axle bar. Across this he lies face foremost, and with wooden clogs strapped to his hands he propels himself along the streets and roads In a marvelously rapid manner. He has complete con trol of the machine, his hands acting as pedals, steering gear, and brake combined. Pretty Good Definition. We hear some funny things la Fleet itreet sometimes, and the fallowing fleflnllion of the height of aggravation, by a gentleman In rather shaky boots, whom we encountered in a well-known hostelry the other day, struck us aa being particularly choice. “The 'eight of haggravatlon, gentle men,” said this pothouse humorist, set ting his pewter on the counter and looking round proudly, with the aly of one about to let off a good thing, “the 'eight of haggravatlon—why. trying to ketch a flea out o* yer ear with a pair of boxfn' gloves.”—London Tit- Bite. An Alaskan Luncheen. Runners of woven Indian basketry, with white drawnwork dollies at each of the 12 covers, ware used on an oval mahogany table. The dollies were made at Sitka.

The edge of tho mirror was hanked with tho same flowers. Four totem poles were placed on doilies In the angles made by. tho manors. Place cards were water colors df Alaskan scenery. Abalone shells held salted nuts, and tiny Indian baskets held bonbons. The soup spoons were of horn, several of the dishes used were made by Alaskan Indians, and the cakes were served on baskets.

That Suit for Libel Against tHe Poatum Cereal Co., Ltd., Gave a Splendid Chance to Bring Out Facts A disagreement about advertising arose with a “weekly” Journal. Following it, an attack on us appeared In their editorial oolumns; sneering at the claims we made particularly regarding Appendicitis. We replied through the regular papers and the “weekly” thought we hit back rather too hard and thereupon sued for libel. The advertisement the “weekly” attacked us about claimed that in many cases of appen dicitis an operation could be avoided by dis continuing Indigestible food, washing out the bowels and taking a predigested food Grape- Nuts. Observe we said MANY cases not all. Wouldn’t that knowledge be a comfort to those who fear a surgeon’s knife as they fear death? 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 no medical knowledge of appendicitis and never Investi gated to find out if the testlrngnal letters to our Co. were genuine. A famous surgeon testified that when an operation was required Grape-Nhte would not obviate It. True. We never claimed that when an operation was required Grape-Nut* would prevent It. The surgeon testified bacteria IgermaJ belp ed 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 tor appendicitis. We showed by expert testimony that many cases are healed without a knife, but by stop ping the nse of food which' did not digest, and when food was required again It was helpful to use s predigested food which did not over tax the weakened organs of iHgsffilnn.

Mr. Robert Butler of Marlborough, England, has had the peculiar expe rience of hearing hla death announc ed. He was attending the poor law conference at Exeter when one of the delegates moved that, la conse quence of the death of Mr. Butler, which they all regretted, another gen tleman, whom he named, should be appointed to fill hla place as one of the representatives of Wiltshire on the central committee. Mr. Butler rose from his place on the platform and announced to the conference, amid much amusement, that, so far as he was aware, he was still alive sad In good health, and would be pleased to continue In the office If the conference desired. Bankers and Bank Notes. Four men, three of whom were con nected with brokerage concerns in the Wall street district, were discussing United States paper currency and the disappearance of counterfeits. “We are so sure nowadays,” said one of the party, ”as to the genuineness of bills that little attention is paid to them In handling, except as to de nomination.” To prove his assertion he took a $lO yellowback from his pocket, and. bolding It up, asked who could tell whose portrait It bore. No one knew, and byway of coaching the broker said It was the first treas urer of the United States.' Again no one knew the name. “Why, It’s Michael Hlllegas,” said the man proudly. “But In. confidence, I’U tell you, I didn’t know It five minutes •go.”—New York Tribune. Vivid at Least. Dr. Hiram C. Cortlandt, the well known theologian of Des Moines, said tea recent address: “Thomas A. Edison tells us that he >thinks the soul Is not Immortal; but, .after all. what dose this great wizard know about souls? His forte Is elec- odd maewteory. —d when- he talks of souls he reminds me Irresist ibly of the young lady who visited the Baldwin locomotive works and then told bow a locomotive Is made. “ ‘You pour,’ she said, ‘a lot of sand Into a lot of boxes, and you throw old stove lids and things Into a furnace, and they you empty the molten stream Into a hole In the sand, and everybody yells and swears.

But one thing 1 for got—they have to make a boiler.

Plain'common sense shows the better way Is to stop food that evidently baa not been digested. Then, when food is required, use an easily digested food. Grape-Nuts or qny other If you know it to be predigested (partly digested before taking). We brought to Cgurt analytical chemists from New York, Chicago and Mishawaka, Ind.. who swore to the analysis of Grape-Nuts and that part of the starchy part of the wheat and barley had been transformed Into 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 “predigasted” food because not all of It was digested outside the body. The other chemists said any food which had 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 rood in which no part Is predigested. To show the facts we Introduce Dr. Thos. Darlington, former chief of the N. Y. Board of Health, Dr. Ralph W. Webster, chief of the Chicago Laboratories, and Dr. B. Sachs, N. Y. If we were a little severe in our denuncia tion 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 conclusions are Indorsed by many of the best medical authorities ot the day. Is it possible that we are at fault for suggesting, ss a Father and Mother might, to one of the family who announced a pain In the side: “Stop using the food, greasy in****, gravies, mines pie, cheese, too much starchy (???)
