Everything goes wrong if the break fast lies in your stomach like a mud pie. What you eat does harm if you can't digest it—it turns to poison. A bright lady teacher found this to be true, even of an ordinary light breakfast of eggs and toast She says: "Two years ago I contracted a very annoying form of Indigestion. My stom ach was in such condition that a sim ple breakfast of fruit, toast and egg gave me great distress. "I was slow to believe that trouble could come from such a simple diet, but finally had to give it up, and found a great change upon a cup of hot Postum and Grape-Nuts with cream, for my morning meal. For more than a year I have held to this course and have not suffered except when injudi ciously varying my diet. "I have been a teacher for several years and find that my easily digest ed breakfast means a saving of nerv ous force for the entire day. My gain of ten pounds in weight also causes me to want to testify to the value of Grape-Nuts. "Grape-Nuts holds lint rank at oar table." Name given by Postum Go, Battle Creek, Mich.

OTHER ITEMS OF INTEREST From the Capitol City, the Various State Institutions and From Many Different Parts ef the Sunshine State. Presho.—That the Great Plains Ir rigation association has become a most important factor in the develop ment of South Dakota, was evidenced by the proceedings of the meeting for organization at Fort Pierre. Moneyed men, engineering experts and public men from all over the state enthusiastically endorsed the move ment and honored the meeting with their presence. H. C. Bartow of Presho, father of the movement, was unanimously elect ed president. The vice president is Dr. C. J. Lavery of Fort Pierre -secre tary, C. W. Chamberlain, of Presho C. L. Millett of Fort Dodge, treasurer. State Engineer Lee, in discussing the subject at the meeting, made these statements "The Missouri riv er has a supply of 10,000,OOO-acre feet at the mouth of the Yellowstone. Of this amount 4,000,000-acre Mr. Lee said that this project would be a factor in diminishing the effects of the lpwer Mississippi floods, as it is the crest of the flood that does the damage. He estimated the probable cost of the project at $80 000,000, or $40 per acre for the lands watered. Mr. Lee heartily endorsed the move ment and said that the meeting was a step in the right direction, as the ir rigation of this country was inevita ble. Resolutions were adopted to be sent to the congressional delegations of Montana, North and South Dakota and to the secretary of the reclama tion service and of the war and inte rior departments. These provided in substance: "The flood waters of the Missouri Yellowstone system. Instead of wast ing themselves and destroying mill ions of dollars worth of property in the lower Mississippi valley, should be conserved and scientifically distrib uted over the great plains. To this end the United States reclamation service is urged to make an immediate preliminary survey to ascertain feasi bility, cost and relative benefits of the proposed route from the Missouri riv er near Fort Buford. thence in a southerly direction through Shafer, Dickinson and Hettinger counties, North Dakota, crossing into Corson county, South Dakota, near Morris town, following southwest to a point near White Owl, Meade county thence southeast, crossing the Chey enne at Pedro: across Stanley coun ty, crossing the Bad in the vicinity of Midland, and finally emptying into the White river. (A high elevation to the south of White river would prevent its further continuance.) Further, that if the United States reclamation service does not have sufficient funds at its disposal, that congress be im mediately petitioned to appropriate sufficient federal money to carry out the same." Judge Barlow was given authority to appoint committees on permanent organization, finance, publicity, etc, and the enterprise was commended to the press of the state for favorable consideration.

Valuable Tripp County Homestead a Matter of Dispute. Sioux Falls.—The officers of the dis trict United States land office have concluded the work of taking the tes timony in an interesting case involv ing the ownership of a valuable home stead in Tripp countv. The defendant in the action is Christian Nelson, the plaintiff being Martin M. Johnson. Sensational charges are made by the plaintiff, who filed the original home stead entry on the farm. He alleges that while he was a patient in a hos pital, recovering from typhoid fever, he was under duress induced to re linquish his right to the homestead by Xelson and to take as a consideration for doing so an 80-acre tract of farm land in Lyman county, which is al leged to be heavily mortgaged and worthless. It is alleged that at the time of executing the relinquishment the plaintiff was mentally incompetent by reason of his illness, to transact business. The plaintiff seeks to have the relinquishment set aside so his original homestead entry will be in tact. it is expected the case will be appealed from the district land office, when a decision is rendered, and that it will be carried to the commissioner of the general land office at Wash ington, and ultimately to the secretary of the interior.

The advan tages for the construction of a res ervoir of the necessary magnitude at Buford. S. D., are admirable. The area of the reservoir would be 200, 000 square feet. The dam would be 200 feet wide at the bottom and 27 feet wide at the top. When this pro ject is completed it will cause a revo lution of conditions west of the river.
