Steady your nerves, and
perfect your digestion
by using bread made
from our whole wheat
flour. It is made from
the whole wheat berry
except the out side hull,
or bran, which is a woody
substance, irritating and
indigestible. Bread made
from this flour is not so
white as that made from
the pale white roller flour,
but it is far superior for
food as it contains all the
gluten, germ, and oily
matter of the wheat and
is much sweeter than
graham or any other
bread not sweetened

There is considerable excitement here
to-day over tho hold up of tho Wilhoit
stage yesterday evening. There was a
posse of over 20 went out last night to
guard roads and bridges but no clew was
found until this afternoon when it was
known that they luul crossed the Dicky
Prairie bridge. It is supposed that they
crossed about noon today (Tuesday). A
party of men are now over in the Dickey
settlement headed by constables Hard
esty and McCown. People here are
thoroughly aroused over such repeated
hold ups and other robberies. There
has been repeated robberies of smoke
houses and dwellings hero recently, in
some instances at a wholesale rate, as
much as 350 or 400 pounds of bacon from
both Wm. Vaughan and Oliver Rob

near here have lost smaller lots of bacon,
flour, sugar, eggs, canned fruit, wearing
apparel, pistols, watches, in fact, nearly
everything of value that was movable.

currence for some one hero to rejiort
something stolen almost daily. The

and unless it ceases some one is liable
to get caught.
