Cub's Faux Pas.
This may be a base libel on an hon-
ored profession, hut It is told by the
man who perpetrated the faux pas.
He was a reporter for a Baltimore pa-
per—or had been one for about an
hour, this being bis first experience In
newspaper work- when the city editor
sent him out lo see Cardinal fllbbons.
The "cub" rushed down to the modest
white house where tbe venerable pre-
late liven, says the Philadelphia Eve-
ning Ledger, and rang tbe bell. A man
servant opened the door.
"Is the caidlnal at home?" asked tbe
"Oh. Mrs. Ribbons will do." ejacu-
lated Ibe "cub."
Tbe human body will stand a lot of
abuse, but sometime It will surely re-

of tbe pasty, starchy, greasy stuffs on
which It has been made sick.
Then la tbe time to try Orape-Nuts,
the most scientific and perfect food In
A lady of Washington toys: 'Three
years ago I was very ill with catarrh
of the stomsch and was given up to
die by one doctor. I laid in bed four
months and my stomach was so weak
that I could not keep down medicine
or hardly any kind of food and was so
weak and emaciated after four months
of this starvation that my daughter
conld easily lift me from bed and put
me in 'my chair.
"But weak as my stomach was. It
accepted, relished snd digested flrape-
Nuts without any difficulty the first
time that wonderful food was tried.
"I am now strong and in better
health than for a great many years
snd am gradually growing still
stronger. I rely on Grape-Nuts for
much of the nourishment that 1 get.
Tbs results have certainly been won-
derful In my case snd prove that no
atoms'li Is so weak It will not digest

Guest Who Didn't Care for Salmon
Was in Fair Way to Have Hot
In some parts of the Canadian
back country the recurrence of
boiled salmon, broiled salmon, Bal-
mon cutlets, and salmon steak at ev-
ery meal becomes, after a few weeks,
a trifle monotonous. To the native
palate, brbught up on It, this constant
reappearance of the selfsame dish Is a
matter of course; but to the newly
arrived tourist it grows at least Into a

fast?" said one such victim of colonial
hospitality, as a whole fish and a pot

"Nothing else!" replied the host. In
surprise. "Why, there's salmon
enough there for six, ain't there?"
"Yes," responded the guest, mild-
ly; "but I don't care for salmon."
"Well, then, fire into the mustard,"
was the rejoinder.

of good roads into every school in the

for road building what the architect
does for a residence building. Then a
