iOf the Food That Restored Her to
"My food was killing me and I didn't
!know tho cause," writes a Colo, young
;ladv. "For two years I was thin and
Slickly, suffering from Indigestion and
"I had tried different kinds of diet,
plain living, and many of the remedies
recommended, but got no better.
"Finally, about flvo weeks ago,
mother suggested that I try Grape-
Nuts, and I began at once, eating It
with a little cream or milk. A change
for tho better began at once.
"To-day I am well and am gaining
velght and strength all tho llmo. I've
gained 10 lbs. m tho last five weeks
and do not suffer any moro from indi

"I know It Is to Grape-Nuts alono
that I owe my restored health. I still
eat the food twice a day and never tire
of It." Name given by Postum Co.,
Battlo Creek, Mich.
Tho flavor of Grape-Nuts Is peculiar
to Itself. It Is neutral, not too sweet
and has an agreeable, healthful qual
ity that never grows tfresome.
Ono of tho sources of rheumatism
Is from overloading the system with
acid material, tho result of Imperfect
digestion and assimilation.
As soon as Improper food Is nban
done7l and Grape-Nuts Is taken regu
larly, digestion Is made strong, tho or
gans do their work of building up good
red blood cells and of carrying away
tho excess of disease-making material
from tho system.
Tho result Is a certain and 'steady
return to normal health and mental
activity, "Thero'a a reason." Read

Police Commissioner Bingham has
learned one important fact that will be
of aid to him in his ofllcial career.
When ho desires to get the exact facts
about some largo question that Is to
the front In New York city ho calls
in the newspaper reporters located at
police headquarters and has a heart-to-heart
talk. As one of them says:
"He gets It straight, and so straight
Hint not all tho men of tho force can
fool him on that one point."
Laundry -worK at home would be

Starch were used. In order to get the
desired stiffness, it Is usually neces
sary to use so much starch that tho
beauty and fineness of tho fabric is
hidden behind a paste of varying
thickness, which not only destroys tho
appearance, but also affects the wear
ing quality of the goods. This trouble
can bo entirely overcome by using Ds
finnco Starch, as It can bo applied
much more thinly because of Its great
er strength than- other makes.
French President's Double.
M. Fallleres was until recently be
lieved to bo tho only president of tho
French republic who had no double,
but his counterpart has been found.
Tho man who most resembles him
physically Is a respectable merchant
of tho Rue Saint Honore, who plays
his part with decorum and dignity. He
wears- exactly tho same kind of blue
butterfly necktio with whlto dots as
the president, tho same kind of hat
and exactly so oddly cut a beard. And
on his promenades ho is always ac
companied by a friend who could eas
ily be taken for the president's privnto
secretary. Dignified and with meas
ured steps tho enviable double walks
through tho Faubourg Saint Honoro
and feels overjoyed at being saluted
on all sides.
Comment That Stung.
The marquis of Lansdown, leader
of unionist peers In the British parlia
ment, speaks rarely but always with
effect. Ho revels in grave sarcasm.
On ono ocaslon Lord Crewe, the lib
eral leader, made a speech on a subject
which ho desired to leavo a matter
for open voting among his followers.
Lord Lansdowno congratulated his
friend on his eloquent speech. "I
have followed it," he said, "with earn
est attention not only on account of
the Importance of tho subject but also
on account of the noble lord's judicial
attitude. I admired his earnestness
and eloquence, but what impressed mo
most was his Impartiality." A pause.
"Yes, until tho last minute I did npt
know on which side of tho fence hia
lordship was coming down."

ANIMALS THAT SHED TEAR.
Travelers' Observations Have Proved
That Weeping Is Common.
Trnvelcrs through tho Syrian desert
havo seen horses weep from thirst, n
mulo has been socn to cry from tho
pain of nu injured foot and camels,
it is Bald, shed tears in streams, says
a writer In Harper's Weekly. A cow
sold by Its mistress who had tended
young Boko ape used to cry from vexa
tion if Livingston didn't nurso it in
his arms when it asked him to.
Wounded apes havo ditJ crying, and
apes havo wept over their young shiln
by hunters. A chlmpanzeo trained to
enrry water Jugs broke ono and fell
n-crylng, which proved sorrow, though
It wouldn't mend tho jug. Rats, dis
covering. their young drowned, havo
been moved to tcarp. A glraffo which
a huntsman's rifle had Injured began
to cry when approached. Sea lions
often weep over tho loss of their
young. Gordon Cummlngs bbscrved
tears trickling down tho face of a dy
ing elephant. And even nn orang
outang when deprived of its mango
was so vexed that it took to weeping.
There Is little doubt, therefore, that
animals do cry from grief or weep
from pain or annoyance.

What is Te-ru-na?
Is It a Catarrh Remedy, or a Tonic,
or is it Both ?
Some people call Pcruna a great tonic. Others refer to Peruna as a great catarrh
Which of these people are right 'f Is it more proper to call Peruna a catarrh rem
edy than to call it a tonic ?
Our reply is, that Pcruna Is both a tonic and a catarrh remedy. Indeed, there can
be no effectual catarrh remedy that is not also a tonic.
In order to thoroughly relieve any case of catarrh, a remedy must not only have a
specific action on tho mucous membranes affected by the catarrh, but it must havo a
general tonic action on the nervous system.
Catarrh, even in persons who are otherwise strong, is a weakened condition of some
mucous membrane. There must be something to strengthen the circulation, to give
tone to the arteries, and to ralso tho vital forces.
Perhaps no vegetable remedy in tho world has attracted so much attention from
medical writers as HYDRASTIS CANADENSIS. The wonderful efficacy of this herb
has been recognized many years, and is growing in its hold upon the medical profession.
When joined with CUBEBS and COPAIBA a trio of medical agents is formed in
Pcruna which constitutes a specific remedy for catarrh that in the present state of medi
cal progress cannot be improved upon. This action, reinforced by such renowned tonics
as COLLINSONIA CANADENSIS, CORYDALIS FORMOSA and CEDRON SEED,
ought to make this compound an ideal remedy for catarrh in all its stages and locations
in the body.
From a theoretical standpoint, therefore, Peruna is beyond criticism. The use of
Peruna, confirms this opinisn. Numberless testimonials from every quarter of the earth
furnish ample evidence that this judgment is not over enthusiastic. When practical ex
perience confirms a well-grounded theory the result is a truth that cannot be shaken.
