Until it has been held all parties to the wage dispute and strike threat are ordered to maintain a "hands-ofT attitude with reference to any wage actions Chicago, Oct. 21. Ufforts of the government, through the United States rail board, to avert the threatened railroad strike failed when the representatives of the liig Five" brotherhoods announced no decision was possible and !ogan laying plans to depart. The rail hoard wired to Wash- inproti for further instructions. A brief formal statement by the labor board at the close of the meet- ing indicated, however, the situation was not hopeless. It said: "There has been a full and frank discussion. The labor board and the brotherhoods exchanged views in a perfectly pleasant way.

A little girl whose father is widely known as a writer of humorous stories, was recently approached by a visitor who said: "It must be nice to have a papa who knows so many fine stories." The little girl blushed and hung her head. "Aren't you proud of your papa?" the visitor asked. "Yes," the little girl answered, "hut I think I ought to tell you something." "What is it?" "The stories of my papa's aren't stories at all." "Not stories?" "No." And in a deep hoarse whisper, the child confessed. "He makes them all up out of his own head." Youngstown Telegram.

He gave an example in folly which anybody can understand. It isn't so easy, however, to sense the mistake of trying to build the body on foods which lack essential nourishment. Here, again, is a foundation of sand which gives 'way when the test comes. Many a food that tastes good lacks honesty of nourishment to equal its taste. Thus it tempts the appetite into mistakes that often are costly. Grape-Nuts is a food which helps build bodily endurance for life's stress and storm. The full nourishment of wheat and malted barley, together with the vital mineral salts so necessary to bone structure and red blood corpuscles, with phosphates for the brain, is retained in Grape-Nuts. The long baking process by which Grape-Nuts is made gives the food a natural sweetness and an unusual ease of digestibility and assimilation. Served with cream or milk, Grape-Nuts is fully nourishing, and whether eaten as a cereal at breakfast or lunch, or made into a pudding for dinner. Grape-Nuts has a particular delight for the appetite. Sold by grocers. Grape -Nuts the Body Builder The medal was bestowed by Gen. John J. Pershing.
