What Becomes of the Wheat?
The wheat yield of the United States for 1914 reached the enormous figure of
nearly 900000000 bushels.
Yet in spite of the wonderful nutritive value of this grain much of its value will
be lost as human food. Why?
Because many wheat products (white bread and many so called breakfast foods)
lack the nourishing mineral qualities of the grain found directly under the bran-coat
These vital elements are thrown out with the bran-coat to make the flour white.
More and more thinking people are waking up to this fact and are now
obtaining all the grain notu'jhment by eating
This famous wheat and malted barley food retains all the nutriment of the grain
including the rich mineral values so necessary in building brain nerve and muscle.
Grape-Nuts it all food no watte! It is easily
digested and with' cream or milk affords complete
nourishment at less cost than any other food.
This together with its delicious flavour fresh-sealed has made Grape-Nuts
a household word the world over.

posal which seeks to change In any
way tho monument or Its surround-
ings. John Marshall that great Jurist was
tho society's first president. Sluco
then beginning with Jackson tho
presidents of tho United States havo
been ex-ofllclo presidents of tho so-
ciety. Tho organization of tho monument
society In 1833 wna undertaken by
representative citizens of Washington
after long cxperlenco had caused them
to despair of congress acting in tho
matter of erecting a memorial to
Oeorgo Washington. Tho continental
congress ns early as 1783 had promised
to erect n memorial to Washington
nnd Major L'Enfant In laying out tho
city of Washington had set apart "res-
ervation No. 3" containing 30 acres
on which tho monument now stands
as tho silo for a memorial to Washing-
ton nnd his compatriots.
Tho monument society on organiza-
tion Issued an nppcal to tho country
nnd proceeded to collect subscriptions
In amounts not exceeding ono dollar
to erect a monument. Money enmo In
fairly well. Then tho society hnvlng
found privately-owned sites Increasing
In price whenever tho owners wero ap-
proached appealed to congress In 1838
asking tho donation of a silo. Not un-
til 1818 did congress respond with n
Joint resolution authorizing tho society
to erect tho monument on such laud
as the president of tho United States
and tho society might select.
Tho 30 acres of "reservation No. 3"
wero chosen nnd deeded to tho society
by deed signed by President Polk.
July 4. 1848 In (ho presence of some
fifteen or twenty thousand persons tho
cornerstone was laid In tho northwest
angle of tho foundation with Impres-
Actively the society continued to
raise money throughout tho country
and to rear the monument. Six years
after tho cornerstone had been laid
tho shaft had reached a height of 1G3
feet at an expense all paid by pri-
vate subscription of some $230000.
At last In 1870 congress voted $500-
000 for tho building of the monument
tobo appropriated at the rato of $50-
000 a year. Tho law provided for tho
work to be carried on by a commis-
sion in uhlch the society was repre-wnted.
