THE BELDING BANNER nELDfxa, MICHIGAN WATCHING THE GAME. 1 1 The umpires of the National league of professional, baseball players had a conference a few days ago. They were urged by the executive head of the or ganization to enforce to the letter the regulations against rowdy ball. This official declared that the few players who are Inclined to be rowdies on the field must not be permitted to negative the good results achieved in recent years of watchfulness. The patrons of the popular American game appre elate this attitude, says the Chicago Tribune. Baseball has a strong hold upon the people. There are millions who like to watch it played.

The Prohibition party is preparing for a whirlwind campaign in this state which, the adherents of the water wagon cause fondly hope will sweep the prize of victory into their dry and arid midst. The state central committee held a meeting in the Detroit headquarters, and, besides electing a few officers. looked the situation over, determined STOPPED HER SONG OF JOY. rndi"ouu"ned'thUpian3.the cst' The leaders believe that the crisis Slight Forgetfulness That Marred the Full Appreciation of the Welcome Rain. Vienna is suffering from too many pigeons and the authorities are at a loss to know what to do to mitigate the nuisance. The birds, which nura ber some thousands, have a privileged existence; nobody molests them in any way, so that they flourish and in crease rapidly. Recently so many com plaints have been received from house owners of the dirty condition of the facades of buildings caused by the pigeons that the Vienna magistracy decided something must be done to re duce the number. In their perplex Ity the magistracy appealed to the VI enna society for the Protection of Animals to aid them in a legal slaugh ter of the offending birds, always hav ing regard, however, to the provisions of the new birds' protection law. The society answered that it would be hardly consistent with their principles of friendliness toward animals to en gage in a massacre of pigeons, and therefore they must reject the official appeal. The magistracy are now wrestling with the problem alone N Perhaps the unemployed of Vienna might help them. He traced the leak to the side room, and when the door was opened a hor rible stench arose. The heat of the room was excessive, and the gas .was pouring from the open Jet. The po lice and coroner were then notified.

What they want is pro hibition backed by Prohibition offi cials, a Prohibition legislature, with a Prohibition party dominant. It is argued that, whereas victory has been won in some states and in about 30 counties in Michigan, yet Jt is, after all, only a partial victory m those localities. It is the "dry" cause in operation, but operated by hostile officials. To havo real prohibition. the laws must be carried out by men in sympathy with them.

President Chi- cnesier welcomed every "effort to eliminate losses and touched on the recently enacted laws of Oklahoma and other western states which aim at the guaranteeing of deposits. All Danicers, he declared, are anxiously watching the results, with a view to aiding any plan whereby those whose tunas are in banks' may be given ab solute assurance of their ultimate re turn. Although the losses weYe al most inflnitestimally small when com pared with the vast amounts handled by banks, it still was necessary to strive to get at the root of the trouble. President Chichester found that 70 per cent of the bank failures were due to dishonesty or fraud, and most of the other failures were due to ig norance of sane and proper banking methods. From this he adduced the the principle that, although everythng possible should be done to guarantee deposits by throwing around them every protection available, complete protection can only come when every bank official is not only honest but absolutely sane and conservative in the execution of every detail.

An active brain worker who found himself hampered by lack of bodily strength and vigor and could not carry out the plans and enterprises he knew how to conduct, was led to study va rious foods and their effects upon the human system. In other words, be fore he could carry out his plans he had to find a food that would carry him along and renew his physical and mental strength. He knew that a food which was a brain and nerve builder (rather than a mere fat maker) was universally needed. He knew that meat with the average man does not accomplish the desired results. He knew that the soft gray substance in brain and nerve centers is made from Albumen and Phosphate of Potash obtained from food. Then he started to solve the problem. f Careful and extensive experiments' evolved Grape-Nuts, the now famous' food. It contains the brain and nerve building food elements in condition for easy digestion. The "result of eating Grape-Nuta daily is easily seen in a marked sturdi ness and marked activity of the brain and nervous system, making it a pleasure for one to carry on the daily duties without fatigue or exhaustion.
