LINERS CRASH ONE SINKS ADMIRAL FARRAGUT AND MERIDA IN COLLISION—PASSENGERS AND CREW SAVED. ENROUTE, HAVANA TO NEW YORK Battleship Iowa, Called by Wireless, Goes to Assistance of Vessels.— Merida Goes Down in Thirty four Fathoms. New York, May 13.—The steamship Merida of the Ward line with 207 pas sengers from Havana for this city, was rammed by the steamer Admiral Far ragut from Philadelphia for Port An tonio, off Cape Charles. The Merida's passengers and crew were transferred to the Admiral Farragut. Water poured through the gaping wound in the Merida's side and five hours after the collision the steamship settled be neath the waves. Wireless distress signals were flashed in every direction and the United States battleship Iowa hurried to the Merida's assistance. The Admiral Far ragut, which had but one passenger aboard, was somewhat damaged in the collision but was able to return to Phil adelphia. Officers of the Merida went among the passengers and assured them there was no danger. The Merida. under the command of Captain Robertson, left Vera Cruz on May 4 and Havana on May 9. The Ad miral Farragut, commanded by Captain Mader, left Philadelphia Cor Port An tonia yesterday. About fifty-five miles east of Cape Charles lightship, the Ad miral Faragut crashed into the Merida. Following the crash wireless calls were sent out and an examination of the Medira showed that she was tak ing water fast. The shock of the col lision brought the passengers of both steamships to the decks. The trans fer of passengers to the Farragut was effected in lifeboats. The Merida's pasengers lost all their baggage and many reached the Farra gut only partly dressed. A wireless dispatch stated that the Merida sank at 5:50 a. m. The Merida was built in Philadelphia in 1906 and has a gross tonnage of 6,207. The Admiral Farragut, owned by the. American Mail Steamship com pany, is in the service of the United Fruit company between Philadelphia and Port Antonio. The Admiral Far ragut had a tonnage of 1,300. The only American on the passen ger list of the Merida were: Philip Lynch, Robert Wright, Mrs. Wright, Anna Wright and William White, the latter a Canadian.

She came to me in four days to tell me she was all right and most thankful. I had another attack last November and ttas so bad that I could not rise from my chair without assistance and could hardly luce up my boots.

Apropos of a beautiful young wife, worth $40,000,000, who had just di vorced her penniless husband In or der to marry again, Henry E. Dixey, the comedian, said at a dinner in New York: "The young man who marries for money has none too easy a time of it. His rich wife is likely to tire of him and throw him out in a few years, or else she Is likely to limit his allow ance to 25 or 50 cents a day. 'I married money,' a man once said to me. 'Wasn't there a woman attached to it?' I asked. "'Yes, you bet there was,' he ex ploded. 'So much attached to it that she never parted with a penny.' A Poetic Prosecutor. John Burns, city prosecutor of St. Paul, was trying to show Judge Fine hout why some young men ought to be fined for tearing pickets off the fence of Mrs. Joe Goesik. Mr. Burns said: "I know Mike Chicket tore off that picket, and the lady took offence." "No lady is charged with taking a fence," replied Judge Finehout, "and, besides, this Is no place for poetry." Made It Necessary. "Horace Greeley invented the type writer." "Where did you get that idea?" "Well, that isn't exactly what I mean, but his handwriting was prob ably more responsible for it than any other one thing." Consistent. Doctor—You are considerably under weight, sir.

When a married woman prays for a hat. the Lord may answer her prayer, but it's her husband who pays for it. It sometimes happens that a street fight reminds a married man that there are other places like home. Laughter will keep the doctor off your doorstep.—Witchell. Is it possible to nourish, strengthen and Re build the Brain by Food? Every man who thinks uses up part of the brain each day. Why don't it all disappear and leave an empty skull in say a month of brain work? Because the man rebuilds each day. If he builds a little less than he destroys, brain fag and nervous prostration result sure. If he builds back a little more each day, the brain grows stronger and more capable. That also is sure. Where does man get the materia) to rebuild his brain? Is it from air, sky or the Ice of the Arctic sea? When you come to think about it, the rebuilding material must be In the food and drink. That also is sure. Are the brain rebuilding materials found in all food? In a good variety but not in suitable proportion in all. To illustrate: we know bones are made large ly of lime and magnesia taken from food therefore to make healthy bone structure we must have food containing these things. We would hardly feed only sugar and fat to make healthy bone structure in a growing child. Likewise If we would feed in a skillful man ner to insure getting what the brain requires for strength and rebuilding, we must first know what the brain is composed of and then select Borne article or articles (there are more than one) that contain these elements. Analysis of brain by an unquestionable authority, Geoghegan, shows of Mineral Salts, Phosphoric Acid s.nd Potash combined (Phos phate of Potash) 2.91 per cent of tfc© total, 6.33 of all mineral Salts.

"Humor is a funny thing," said Binks. "It ought to be," said the Philoso pher. "Oh, I don't mean that may," said Binks. "I mean that it is a strange thing. Now, I can't speak French, but I can always understand a French joke, and I can speak English, but I'm blest if I can see an English joke." "Most people are," said the Philo sopher. "Are what?" said Binks. "Blest if they can see an English joke," said the Philosopher. "It is a sign of an unusually keen vision."— Harper's Weekly. Age of Oysters. Oysters grow only during the sum mer and especially during the long, warm summer at that, and are scarce ly big enough for the mouth before the third year. It is easy after look ing over a bunch of shells to tell how old an oyster is. A summer hump and the winter sink come across the shell every year, but after the seventh or tenth year full growth comes then, by looking at the sinks between the humps it is hard to tell anything more about Miss Oyster's age. Oysters live to be twenty years old. His Wurst. The German proprietor of a Brook lyn delicatessen store has got far enough along to pun in English. A writer in the New York Sun reports the fact.

Can't Get Away Froifi It phoric Acid combined" and Potash 73.44 per cent from a total of 101.07. Considerable more than one-half of Phos phate of Potash. Analysis of Grape-Nuts shows: Potassium and Phosphorus (which join and make Phos phate of Potash) is considerable more than one-half of all the mineral salts in the food. Dr. Geo. W. Carey, an authority on the constituent elements of the body, says: "The gray matter of the brain is controlled entirely by the inorganic cell-salt. Potassium Phos phate (Phosphate of Potash). This salt unites with albumen and by the addition of oxygen creates nerve fluid or the gray matter of the brain. Of course, there is a trace of other salts and other organic matter in nerve fluid, but Potassium Phosphate is the chief factor and has the power within itself to attract, by its own law of affinity, all things needed to manufacture the elixir of life." Further on he says: "The beginning and end of the matter is to supply the lacking principle, and in molecular form, exactly as nature fur nishes it in vegetables, fruits and grain. To supply deficiencies—this is the only law of cure." The natural conclusion is that if Phosphate of Potash is the needed mineral element in brain and you use food which does not contain it, you have brain fag because its daily loss is not supplied. On the contrary, if yoj eat food known to be rich in this element, you place before the life forces that which nature demands for brain-building. Mind does not work well on a brain that !s broken down by lack of nourishment. A peaceful and evenly poised mind is neces sary to good digestion.
