Correct the Habit Habit
Tho surest way to bring on prema-
ture old age is to get into a rut. On
the other hand, the surest way to
avert old age is to get out of the rat.
If you desire to keep young, do not
make your habits hard and fast, or
your arteries will likewise beefcme
so. Govern your habits; do not let
them rule you. Just to show them
thai they do not, order thern to break
ranks from time to time.—Brain and
Life Without Lace
"One can't help thinking what a
colorless life a man is forced to lead,
when one reflects that chiffon and
Venetian point and hand embroidery
and Irish crochet are to him mere
empty words. Whereas a woman,
whether she is Interested in babies, or
microbes, or husbands, or poetry or
Plato, or bridge is fundamentally ani
always interested in" clothes.—From
Daddy-Long Legs, by Jean Webster.
Eariy Days of Cgarmaking
At one time in the eariy history of
this country cigurmaking was an im-
portant industry in Germany and large
quantities of German-made cigars
came to the United States. The first
separate tabulation of cigar impers
was in 1504. and in that year f3ci
million were brought into the United
States, nearly ail of them coming from
the West Indies.

HAPPY OLD AGE
Most Likely to Follow Proper Eating.
As old age advances we require less
food to replace waste, and food that
will not overtax the digestive organs,
while supplying true nourishment.
Such an ideal food is found in Grape-
Nuts. made of whole wheat and bariey
by long baking and action of diastase
in the barley which changes the starch
into a most digestible sugar.
The phosphates also, placed up un-
der the outer-coat of the wheat, are
included in Grape-Nuts, but are lack-
ing in white flour because the outer-
coat of the wheat darkens the flour
and is left out by the miller. These
natural phosphates are necessary to
the well balanced building ot muscle,
brain and nerve cells.
"I have used Grape-Nuts." writes an
Iowa man. "for 8 years and feel as
good and am stronger than I was ten

every day who is well along in years

they go fine together.
"For many years before I began to
eat Grape-Nuts, I could not say that I
enjoyed life or knew what it was to be
able to say 'I am well' I suffered
greatly with constipation, but now my
habits are as regular as ever in my
