Victoria, Nov. 19.���Old U. 8. cutter
Curwin, whioh "lis lain hero over a
rear, goea out today under Capt.
West, having been chartered l>y Capt.
Jirhnfon, of tho Nanaimo Fish Co., to
enpRi' in Ihe halibut fisheries.
A prominent manager of the Northern oompany here just from tho north
sayB the NUngwny story regarding a
Ynlron republic was not nil a fake,
and that llorrignn had Ihe interview
mentioned with United Stales oflieers.
The whole misohief is attributable to
Fenian machinations, there being an
active body in Skagway to whom is
attributable the insult to tlic British
ring a while ago, and the attempt to
discredit British officials.
An influential delegation comprising both Liberals and Conservatives
waited on E. V. Bodwell, K. C, last
night asking him to run in opposition
to a government candidate at the Victoria bye-elections. The delegation
included T. B. Hall, W. A Ward, B.
Crow linker, (lordon Hunter, K. P.,
and 1'. C. Macllrcgor, the latter one
of the most ardent Martinites an1
consequently anti-llodwellites in last
election. Mr. Ilodwell consented and
he will make a very strong candidate
It is understood that ho will drop his
railway brief". The Times comes out
editorially tonight strongly in support
of liicrj.
His election in the city will bo
almost certain, as a year or two ago a
mass meeting in A. O. U. W. hall
almost insisted that ho stand, but he
could not then ho induced to do so. If
elected and the government overthrown, he would be tbe very probable successor ot Dunsmuir as
premier. This would mean tho advent
of the Oreat Northern and anti-0. P.
K. policy, as be has long been Hill's
representative and V.,V. Sc E. sponsor
in this province. His elec'ion would
also have the effect of driving Martin
and Ihinamuir even more pronouncedly iutr. Hie same camp, as Martin and
Boilwoll are Ditter political and personal enemies.
Ilodwell in an interview this morning outlined a broad policy on which
lit intends to appeal to the electorate.
He has no confidence in tho government, believing it bound up to a
policy which is contrary to the interests of the country The groat question to which the government should
bend its energies, he says ale roil-
ways.tho difficulty with mine owners,
'be position of the lead mines, the
re-organization of the fiscal system,
and oriental immigration. In ccmno:-
tion with the first ho advocates subsidies to trunk linos namely, Coast-
Kootenay, Island extension.' Kamloops
��"'l Atlin, and that section of the
Canadian Northern railway through
British Columbia. He says he has a
scheme by which these can be done
without additional burdens on the
ratepayers, lie would take up tho
wad mines trouble with tho Dominion
government. Regarding Mongolians
ne says that previous effort has been
misdirected because the provinoc had
��o power to legislate and hy doing so
only caused friction with Ottawa, no
would enlist the sympathy of Ottawa
and then the Dominion and the province would jointly approach tbe Imperial government and ask for a modulation of the treaties with Japan
and China as to reatriotlug eraigra-
ll��n. Mr. Bodwell this morning sev-
"'ed his oouneotion with those clients,
including the corporations whose
Partonage he could not retain because
of the new relationship.
Collier San Mateo,
of the l'acific Improvement Co., have
not yet put in a salvage olaim ngainsl

EXPLODES
AMERICAN POLICY.
Not. Agrandisement In  America  But
Acceptance of Responsibilities.
New York, Nov. 10.���Speaking at
tho chamber of commerce dinner tonight Secretary of State Hay after
paying an eloquent tribute to the
worth of late President McKlnley said
among other things:
I think I may say that our sister
republics to the south are perfectly
convinced of the sincerity of our attitude. They know we desire the prosperity of onah of them, and peace und
happiness among then. We no more
want their territory thnn we covet the
mountains of the moon. As to what
we have tried to do���what we aro
still trying to do--in the general
field of diplomacy. This is no reason for doubt on the one hand nor
reticence on the other. We have
striven on the lines laid down by
Washington, to cultivate friendly relations with all powers, hut not to
take part in the formation of groups
or combinations among tbem. We
have sunght, succesfnlly, to induce all
tho gr;at powers to unite in a recognition of tbe general principle of
equality of commcroial access and opportunity in the markets of the
orient. | We consider our ease in the
Pacific ocean as great now ns those of
any other power and destined to indefinite developments. We have opened our doois to the people of Hawaii;
we have accepted the responsiilitv of
the rhillipines which providence imposed upon us. Wo havo put an en*
to the cmbarrdsing conditions in
which we wore involved in Samoa
and while abandoi.ing a number of
commercial rights in the entire group
wc have established our flag and our
authority in Tntoila which gives us
tbe first harbor in the south sea.
Next in order will come 1'acifio cable
and an Isthmian canal for the use of
well disposed people but under exclusive American ownership and American control of both of which great
enterprises President McKinley and
Roosevelt have been energetic
constant  champions.

Kaslo, Nov. 19,���Geo. Carney, about
21 years old, the eldest son of .lodge
Carney, of this place, was instantly
killed this morning on the new Fry

FAVORABLE TO A TREATY.
Berlin, Nov 19.���In unofficial cir-
oles the correctness of a Washington
despatch to the London Globe to tho
effect that Dr. Von Holleben, (lerman
ambassador at Washington wno recently' sailed for the United States
carried with him a completed com.
mercial treaty with that conntiy is
today denied. This statement from
Washington is considered impossible
ir so much as the (lerman tariff has
not yet been finally determined.
German officials oonsidcr that the
prospects for tile final successful negotiations of this commercial treaty
with Washington havo never been
better than they are today.
LIBERAL EXECUIIVE.
John A. Gibson Recommended Por
Postmaster Convention Discussed.
Tbe executive of the Liberal association held a meeting at the Phair

body to the effect that a convention
of B. C. Liberals be called to meet in
Vanoouvcr and tbat it be held only on
the eve of a possible general election
and that delegates to such convention
ue not allowed proxies.
A resolution was passed declaring
that while in favor of a convention
the executive was opposed to the
point named as being not sufficiently
central and suggesting Kamloops as
more suitable, that the executive did
not think the right time was just on
the eve of a general election, and
furthermore lhat the executive was
srongly opposed to the principle of
not admitting proxies.
A resolution was passed asking the
member for tho "riding to look into
the matter of obtaining another senator from British Columbia, he to receive his appointment as particularly
representing Yale-Cariboo.

TO SURROUND BRIGANDS.
Mr. Dickinson Requests That Troops
Take Up the Chase.
Sofia, Nov. 19. ��� It is reported thai
Mr. Dickinson, the II. S. diplomatic
agent here informed the Government
of Bulgaria that the abductionlsts of
Miss Ellen M. Stone anil Madame
Tallica with their captors aro conceal-
African Constabulary, of enteric lever  e(1 ln n l'eH1�� l,f Illll|o UitM mountains
near Sinotchno. district of Duhnltza,
and bas requested that troops be sent
to surround the place ano liberate the
captives.
Both Mr. Dickinson and the Bulgarian foreign office decline to confirm
or deny this report. It is nevertheless
believed that Mr. Dickinson, persuaded of the inability of coming to terms
witli the brigands, and relying upon
his belief that they will not harm
their captives if tbe troops are employed against them, has after coning with Washington decided
npon tbis move. Only eight bandits
now guard Miss Stone and some of
these are known to sympathise with
cr.
About a fortnight ago Mr.Dickinson
approached the foieigu otlice and proposed this plan, but its carrying out
was abandoned because of the uneci''
tninty of tile location of the   bandits.

Man.
Imperial authorities are now in
communication with the government
regarding tbe acceptance of Major
Merritt's offer of Canadian troops
whioh was submitted to tbem last
soring and declined, lt is likely now
that an opportunity wilt soon be
given Canadians to again enlist for
service in South Africa. It is understood that the force will be somewhat
similar to Strathcona Horse and will
be chosen principally from Manitoba
and the western province.

WANTS A FREE HAND.
Nortbport, Nov. 111.���It was stated
horo this morning that Oscar Szon-
tagli, after making a complete inspection of the Le Roi smelting plant,
and looking Into the labor situation,
positively declined to take charge unless he was given a free hand. If this
is true it is identically the position
taken by Jules Lobarthe, who wns
brought here from lrail.|and who also
declined to become the general manager of Iho smelter unless he were
given his own way as to whom he
should employ. This decision places
Mr. Frechcville in a peculiar position.
It is said ou the other hand that Mr.
Szontagh made a speech to the smelter
employees and stated that the company's policy in the past would he
maintained.

NATIONAL W. C. T. U.
Fort Worth,   Tex.,   Nov.   19.���The
salient features of today [a   session   of
the W. C. T. U.   national   convention
was the debate over  the   adoption  of
PARLIAMENTARY PROCEDURE.
Reforms Calculated to Hasten Business
and Prevent Obstruction.
London, Nov. 19.���It is understood
that the British government intends
to propose the reform of the procedure
of the parliament to overcomeobstruc-
tions. The scheme will suggest that
the house assemble at 2.80 p. m. instead of i p. in., that gaverument
business be taken first; that an ad
journment from 7.80 until 9 be taken
for dinner and that question then be
taken up and ordinary business be
carried on until midnight.
Under the existing system, questions form the first busincsB of the
house of commons and give rise to
much obstruction. It will also be
proposed that estimates be first consid-
led by a strong committee representing all sections of the house in whose
proceedings tho duration of speeches
would be limited and that the existing cumbrous method of taking divisions be superceded by the self regis
tering vote machinery used in most
continental legislatures. Under the
now scheme disorderly members
would be more sternly punished for
the first offense and suspended for a
mouth with increasing punishment for
renewed offences and offenders would
be compelled to apologise before teing
permitted to return to Parliament.
Toronto Has the Largest Hydraulic
Dredge in the World.
Toronto, Nov. 19.���The Evoning
Telegram's London cable says: The
under-secretary for war says that
Canada's latest offer of mounted infantry for South African scrvico is
being considered. The Imperial authorities arc in ommunichation with the
Colonial and Canadian officers, but
nothing is yet done. Enquiry at the
Canadian office elicited no information. However, the matter is receiving
most favorable consideration and it
is quite probable that on the arrival
of Lord Strathcona a decision will be
reached.
The Ontario Canner's association
met here today but it is not expeoted
that last year's restrictive agreement
will be continued. There will probably be open market, a free fight and
low prices. The small canncrs will
differ.

expedition and the indemnification of
French sufferers in China.
M. Caillanx, minister of finance,
defended and explained the government plan. M.Waldcck-Roussean, the
premier, mado a forcible reply defending the policy of France in protecting
French missionaries iu China. The
premier's sp'-ach produced a great
effect npon the chamber and will probably result in carrying the government scheme practically unchanged.
The debate was adjourned to
Thursday.

WANT TO HEAR|CI!ARLTON.
Buffalo, Nov. 19.���At a meeting of
the floor committee of the Buffalo
Merchants' exchange today, it was
doeldod to invito Hon. John Charlton,
of Canada, lo address tho exchange on
tlio question of closer trade relations
between this country ami Canada and
requesting   Mr. Charlton to name the
I). Saunders and L. F. Williams,
of the trustees of the Sullivan
Mining company, came in lust evening from the mine and smeller. Mr.
Williams takes the place of Senator
Turner on the board during his
absence iu Washington.
Ma Saunders anil Mr. Williams
report good progress being made
toward tho construction of the smelter
anil reiucry. When they left it was
expected that work on the grading for
the roasting yards would begin on
Wednesday and on tbat day, or the
next work wonld start on tbo mile of
railway lhat has to be built from the
Klmnerloy line to the smelter site.
The smeller people will have to build
a short spur up to the works. Tho sawmill plant has arrived and is expeoted
to be in operation on Saturday or
Monday next. It will havo a capacity
of 2.1,000 feet of lumber per day. The
brick yard is getting along well making brick at tho rote of 20,000 a day
so that all departments are progressing well together. J. P. Tlerney, of
Nelson, has the contract for building
the railway and spur.
Tho ore from the Sullivan mine
will be treated by a process not commonly employed with silver-lead
ores. The oro will be drat roasted in
what is called a hand roaster and then
smelted. Sullivan ore is of that natuie.
that so treated no fins will be. required. For the purpose of roasting
yards 850x000  feet   are being   levelled
off.
Thu mine bas now fully 200.000 tons
of oro blocked out so that there is an
ample supply for the smelter for many
years to come. The refinery, which Is
to be constructed at the same time
will be of sufficient capacity to treat
the bullion resulting from the reduction of 200 ttons of ore a day.
Though primarily boing limit for
the Sullivan mines alone the smeltor
may eventually treat custom ore bnt it
will not be necessary to do so for
fluxing purposes. The North Star
mine pioduccs both galena and carbonates of silver and these could be
handled to advantage in this smelter.
Farther up Mark cieek is the Great
Done mineral claim whioh will no
doubt develop into a producer of largo
quantities of lead ore and It also
would be tributary to this smelter.
At the mine things arc being gut iu
readiness to ship as soon as tho
smelter is finished, though no work
is being done underground. A gallows frame is being erected and a hoist
witli a capacity of about 50�� tons per
.lay is being put in.
Mr. Austin, the smelter, manager is
now ln Spokane preparing the plans
and details for the buildings. When
these are completed tenders will be
called Icr the erection of the works.
It is expected that the foundations
can be started in about three weeks.
They report the town of Marysville.
active in every way. As many new
buildings arc going up as lumber can
be got for, lots arc belling readily and
many people moving In. Surveys are
being made for a railway which
would be a continuation of the spur
to ihe smelter, which leaves the Kim-
berley branch about four miles from
the terminus. The new survey runs
up the St.Mary's river and it could be
continued on to Pilot Bay, a distance
of only .14 miles. This route would
cut off o.i miles from the distance to
bo travelled by   rail   from   Cranbrook
to Kootenay Lake.

THE BYLAW DEFEATED,
Bylaw 101, providing for a contract
tween the city and the West Kootenay Power Sc Light company to furnish a minimum of 100 horse power
for a year, was defeated at the polls
yesterday. The vote stood 207 for
and 150 against. It was necessary to
have a three-fifths majority to have
carried the bylaw. There were ISO
votes cast against the bylaw and 'M~
for it. This gives a total of 357 votes.
One-fifth of 357 is 71 and 2-5ths and
three-fifths of 357 is 214 1-5. So all
that would have been necessary to
have carried the bylaw would have
been 7 l-5th more votes. Eight more
in itsjfavor would have done lt. As
it is there were 57 more ratepayers in
favor of the bylaw than there were
voted against it, which shows at least
that it was favored by a large
majority. The votes of the minority,
however, are all powerful in the present instance and all most needs submit to it/ It is trne that there will be
the inconvenience of a lack of ligh
dm lug the coining winter, but under
the circumstances, the existing plant
must be made to do the very best pos
sible work. In certain instances
meters should be installed and this
will make people more economical in
regard to allowing lights to burn
where and when they are not needed
If this ia ('one it would be considerable of a relief to tbe present, plan
and tend to reduce thu load.
In the meanwhile preliminary steps
should at once be taken to ascertain
what the cost of a plant would be o:
a sufficient capacity for present purposes anils and so arranged that it
can be added to when required by the
growth of the city and the consequent
augmentation of the demand for
lights. At the proper _time tbe_plant
can be erected.
The election is over, it is a closed
incident. Its results should leave no
resentments behind, no fends. It is
the law that three-fifths majority was
required to curry it ami it failed to
secure the necessary votes. This
boing tbe ease we should shake bauds
over the result and join together in
adopting the next Dest.plan for providing lights for the eity. Io secure thi
end there should be harmony and a
disposition to work together fcr ihe
common good and tbe advancement
of the city of Nelson.
newspapers say that such a courfe
is impossible and that for generations
the papers have restricted their advertisers to a certain style to the end
that one patiou may have no advantage over the others; all advertisements are set with a uniformity of
style. The oig London dailies appear
to have a contempt for the wishes of
their advertisers who really furnish
the life-blood of these publications
and to whom more consideration
should be shown. The advertiser
who wishes to call speoial and prompt
attentiuu to any special line say that
the system adopted by the papers is
wrong and is hurtful to their interests. It is alleged that certain merchants of long standing nave been
compelled lo quit business because the
newspapers did not permit Ihoin to
advertise as effectively as tbey wish
to. The advertisers declare that they
wish to have the same latitude that is
given to their contemporaries
Canada and the United States. It
Seems nothing short of surprising lh.it
the English paper managers dn not
accede to tho wishes of their most valuable patrons, but the old spiril of
llritish conservatism crops out and
is, as usual, hard to overcome. Thnt
the advertisers will win in the end
seems certain. There should be largely
increased revenue for the first paper
of prominence that will give the advertisers what thoy want.
EDITORIAL NOTE?.
The government assay oflice at Vancouver was opened on July 110th last
and yet since that time over two and
m half millions of dollars worth of
gold has been treated at it. This was
done despite the serious intei ruptions
in the Vaucouver-Yukou transpjita
'ion service occasioned by tbe lost! of
tho Islander and tbe wreck nf the
Hating. The business transacted by
the ahsny office is, therefore, most
gratifying and had the traffic not been
interrupted the business would have
been much larger than it is. The
miners bringing the gold from the
Yukon plaoers invariably spend a
large percentage of It in the places
where they turn their gold into money
nnd tbe establishment of the assay office most have been of considerable aid
to tlie holiness Of Vancouver. The
obejet of establishing tlio assay office
was to divert the stream of Yukon
gold (rom American into Canadian
channels and now thnt this has been
started the proportion which Canada
will get will keep ou growing till in
time it will get tbe bulk nf the
precious metal. The pincers of the
nortli will last for many years anil
will be of material benefit in building up not only the cosat cities, but
also the province and the Dominion,
There is a singular contest on in
England between newspaper publishers and advertisers. The latter contend thnt tbey should be allowed to

Scotch mile of 5,028 feet, and tho

Prussians enjoy a milo that is 1H.44U

length of ours, and tbe Swiss get
more exercise in walking one of their
miles than we get in walking five
miles, for their mile is 9,1511 yards

Italian mile is only a few feet longer
than ours, the Roman mile is shorter,

miles aie 150 yards longer, and the
Vienna pest mile is 8,700 yards in
length. Ho here is a list of twelve
different miles, and besides this there
are other measures of distance, not
counting the French kilometer, which
is rather less than two-thirds of a
mile. The Brazilians have a milia
lhat is one and one-fourth times as
long as our mile; the Neapolitan
raiglio is about tlie same length : the
Japanese ri, or mile, is two and one-
half times ours; the Itussinn verst is
five-eighths as long as our mile, while
the Persian standard is a fosakh,
four and a half miles long, which is
said to bo equal to the parasapg, so

There has been quite a rise in the
price of asbestos and it is not likely
that there will be a fall soon. A fire
last year in the principal asbestos
mine in Canada cut down the supply
several thousand tons. Lust year
about 60 per cent, more asbestos was
used than in the previous year. Most
of the asbestos used came from Canadian mines, as that which is mined
in Italy and other places in Europe is
too brittle for ordinary purposes. It
is already known that there is considerable asbestos in Kootonay. It is
a mineral which is unaffected by lire,
and is a variety of hornblende and
pyroxene, occurring in long delicate
liners, or fibrous masses, or scams,
usually of white or grey color, bnt
sometimes greenish or reddish. The
finer varieties havo been wrought into
gloves and cloth, which are incombustible. Asbostos cloth wns formerly
used as a shroud foi dead bodies and
for firemen's clothes and drop curtains
in theaters. In this section large
quantities of the metal is used as a
covering for steam pipes as it is a poo
conductor of beat. Prospectors should
be on the lookout for deposits of this
peculiar mineral as n good mine of it
is of considerable value.

Wonderful effect of yonr Asthmalene, for the cure of Asthma. My wife has

Anirew Ferguson has returned to
Ferguson from Trail, says the Eaglo,
having accompanied the last Triune
shipment of the season to the Trail
sniclter. The shipment comprised 414
sidles of ore, the gross weight of
which was 49,770 lbs., nearly 5 tons.
The sacks weighed 1,200 lbs., and the
moisture deduction was 4.3 leaving
_ ntt weight of 40,487 lbs. of ore.
_|���. smelter assays per ton of the
shipment, (the basis of the purchase
price) were .40 ounces in gold, 346.6
ounces in silver, nnd 63.8 per cent
lead. The total gold values were 9.297
ounces, at $20 per ounce for 95 per
cent. ��i' !fl70.(il. Tbo total silver
videos were 8,032.95 ounces., at the
exceodlngly low price of 57X cents
linos,   for    9.1   per    cont.,   or

The total lead values were
H

25,00!l lbs., at the dreadfully low
priec nf 1.4*5 cents per lb., for 90 per
cent., giving the owners only 8334.2.1.
The ��roB9 volnes, therefore, were
. the totnl charges, at $21 o

vnhies of (4,882.16. Out of this,
the test of mining, packing to Ten-
mllft.frelghting to the Innding, and
tho provincial oro tax must come yet,
leaving after all none too large a
remuneration for the owners of the
Triune, though it is certainly a good
Bhowing fur tbe possibilities of this
growing camp.
A. P. Ilosenbcrgcr has returned
fiom n trip to the Lardeau, where be
went lo look at tho progress being
mnde nn the mining properties in
which he and his companies are in ���
(crested. Hi- states thnt there are 15
men working on the Eva group owned
by the Imperial Development syndi-
i He. Two shafts are being sunk on
Ilic Hvn mineral claim. A tunnel is
neing inn. commonly known as the
No. (i tunnel, to intersect a body of
ore that outcrops at the boundary line
ol the I'Jva and Highland Mnry
claims. About SO feet more will

The Northwestern Development syndicate hns things in order to oniry on
work all winter. Five men, all who
can he worked to idvantngc, ore driving a long tunnel following tbe vein
un the Camborne mineral claim. This
tunnel cau ovontunlly be carried on
for probably 1,000 leet as the outcrop
can be 11need for thnt distance The
ore in whioh the tunnel runs k of

Mr, Kusenbergcr reports considerable activity in the Lardeau district.
The construction of the railway to

J I.aing Stocks visited the Poormnn-
liranllc mine yesterday to witness the
darting up of the new compressor
which is to be used in sinking the
main shaft. Mr. Stooks reports that
tlie machinery was found to bo in first
class eider and was working perfectly
when he left. With the installation
of this compressor the development of
the I'ooiman-Granite mino will bo
pushed forward rapidly, and it is
Probable that In a short time they
will be added to the list of shipping
mines in the vi-inity of Nelson. The
Uranito mill Is but four miles from

THE CITY  j
J One of the members of tbe Auditorium gave a free exhibition on Baker
street yesterday which drew a large
crow. He was a bicycle rider of nc
mean ability.
One of the largest deer shot this
season was brought here by the
steamer Nelson yesterday from Pilot
Hay. having been shot about five
miles inland from there.
The tug Ilalys came in yesterday
bringing a large barge loaded with
hay from near Kootenay Landing, and
also bringing in T.O. Procter's houseboat to be tied np for the wintei.
J Work on the Salvation Army barracks iB progressing rapidly. Tin
contiaet for_the seats and other fixt
ures has been awarded the Kootenay
Wire works, and tbey will be placed
111 position shonly.
Mr. and Mrs. Wm. Wbitmore are
mourning the loss of their infant son,
Erwin, who was buried on Monday.
Death was caused by pneumonia following whocping cough. l!ev. .1. H.
White conducted tbe funeral services.
T. Robinson, who is employe at the
Traves' meat market, had the tips of
tlie fingers of his right hand caught
Id a sausage machine yesterday with
the result that the bone was so
severely ciushed that the lingers had
to be amputated at the first joint.
On the city wharf yesterday a temporary blockade occurred while the
teams were unloading height to go on
the steamers Nelson and Knslo. Over
a dozen wagons were congregated at
the end of the wharf and as several
were unloading lumber, firewood and
hay from barges at one side while other
teams, having unloaded their freight
for the steamers, were trying to get
past, with fresh teams arriving and
trying to get out to the steamers anl
all in a hurry, confusion reigned for
some time. The completing of the
widening of the. wharf nt tlie end will
prove of especial benefit to the teams
ters as with the large amount of goods
that are transferred each day the
wharf facilities at low water nre not
adequate nt presHnt   to the   situation.
EASY FOOD
Heady for Instant Use Without Cooking-
Almost everyone likes a.cereal fond
of some kind at breakfast and supper,
but tho ordinary' way of cooking
cereals results in a pasty mass that
requires strong' digestive power to get
along with, and if not. properly
digested,the raw mass goes down into
the intestinal tract where gas is generated and all sorts of troubles set up.
Everyone knows that good food
properiy digested keeps the body well,
while poor food, or even food of good
quality that is poorly prepared and
not digested, is sure to bring on some
hi oil of disease.
The easiest food to digcs*. in this
line is Grape Nuts, made from wheat
and barley, and cooked thoroughly at
tho factory, Borne ten or twelve hours
being consumed in the different processes of preparation. The food, then"
fore, is ready for instant service and
the starch lias been changed to Grape*
Sugar so thnt it. is pre-digested and
ready for almost Immediate nsxiini-
lation.
Miss R. E. Phillips, a young lady
nt 385(1 Vernon Ave., Chicago, writes
that she niirrVreo for years from Indigestion and dyspepsia from the use of
food tbat was not suitable to her
powers ol digestion.
She says, 1 began using (Jrape-Nnts,
and 1 coufess to having hnd a prejudice, at first, and was repeated ly
urged before I finally decided to liy
the food, but 1 have not known what
indigestion is since nsing it, and
have never been stronger or in better
health I have Increased in weight
from 100 to 181 pounds.
People can he well, practically
without cost, if they will adopt scientific food and leave off the indigestible sort.
Orape-Nuts Food is sold nt all first-
class groceries. It is orlsp and delicious to the tuste. It should be served
exactly as It comes from the package,
without cooking, except in cases
where it is made up into puddings
Bud other desserts.
