Conferences with educational lead
ers have been held all along the route
from the Fast to the West and the
distinguished women have been enter
tained by leaders in child welfare
work, which is the distinctive aim of
the Nationul Congress of Mothers. The
slogan of the organization is "Save the
babies. Safeguard the boys arid girls.
Give to youth higher ideals of marriage
and home making. Educate the father.
Train the mother and ennoble the
Bisr Programme Ready Today.
Meetings of the National and Port
land boards, luncheon at the Benson
and an auto ride will occupy today.
The convention will be called to order
promptly at 8 o'clock tonight. The
general topic of the convention will be
"Child Welfare in Home, Church,
6chool and State."
l Mrs. Schoff has been connected with
the National organization since it was
founded. For five years she was vice
president and since that time has been
National president. Contrary to a
theory found among those not informed
on Congress of Mothers work, the
leaders in the movement are nearly
all mothers and many of them have
large families, so have a right to be
termed "mothers." x
Mrs. Sohoff has seven children and 11
(rrandchildren. Mrs. Robert Tate, the
honorary president of the Oregon Con
gress of Mothers and one of the Na
tional vice-presidents; Mrs. Aristene
Kelts, president of the stats organiza
tion, and others who are leaders in
tha work are devoted mothers.

School Industrial Clubs to Ex
change Oregon Products.
PLAN WILL EXPLOIT STATE
Superintendent ' Churchill Starts
Move to Co-operate With Clubs In
Other States, Believing Oregon
Will Show to Advantage.
SALEM, Or.. May 11. (Speeial.)
State Superintendent of Public Instruc
tion Churchill announced today that he
had begun corresponding with school
heads in other states "regarding the ex
change of products made by school
children in their . industrial depart
ments. He said that virtually all the
states were conducting industrial
clubs, and he believed his plan of ex
changing products would be of great
educational value. Oregon, so far, has
the most comprehensive plan, and while
determined that it shall remain in tha
lead, Mr. Churchill is confident its ex
ample will stimulate the children of
other states in their work.
"One cause of our success," declared
the superintendent, "is our many re
sources and industries. While we have
not worked out the details, I believe
our exchange bureau will be in opera
tion next year. As one of the funda
mental objects is the advertisement of
the resources of Oregon, the boys will
exchange sample ears of seed corn, po
The belief is general in the East that
we cannot grow corn, and it will be a
revelation to the residents of Iowa, for
instance, to receive corn just aa perfect
as any that may be sent from there
here. It will enable our boys to obtain
new varieties of corn to acclimate and
experiment with in their club work. In
the Eastern and Southern states the
work of the canning clubs Is restricted
largely to the canning of tomatoes. Our

Pure Food Expert
Before Grape-Nuts was included in the Pure Food Directory of the New
York Globe, the publishers sent their expert, Alfred W. McCann, to get the
facts about this famous cereal f ddd what it is made of, how it is made, and
whether or not too much had been claimed for it.
The makers have always held that Grape-Nuts is a body and brain-building
food; that it contains the vital mineral elements lacking in white flour, and
foods made from white flour; that it digests more readily than any other
prepared cereal foods, etc.
' McCann came to Battle Creek at the Globe's expense. He investigated
had the run of the factory upstairs, downstairs and all over the place.
. In the N. Y. Globe of April 1, 1915, he said:
Any.man who can go to Battle Creek and come away with
the statement that he is not amazed is given to the habit of
bearing false witness against his neighbor.
"I watched the delivery of the wheat to the Grape-Nuts
bakery. It was selected wheat, too. I watched the mills
grind this wheat, and there was no patent flour stunt pulled
off in grinding it, either. The wheat went right through the
rolls and came out as honest and as unrefined as when it
went in. I saw this wheat mixed with barley malt in a mixing-room
that is a model of cleanliness.
"Grape-Nuts is an honest, genuine, wholesome, good, fool
proof breakfast food.'
"Grape-Nuts is all Post ever claimed for it Instead of
over-estimating the truth he didn't tell ten per cent of it."
TheVe you have it! If you want to know more, write Alfred W. McCann,
care N. Y. Globe, N. Y., or come to Battle Creek and see for yourself. There's
no mystery about Grape-Nuts. - 1
This wonderful food DOES build "body, brain and nerve tissue. It DOES
furnish the vital mineral phosphates usually lacking in the daily dietary. It is
easily digestible, economical, and comes ready .to eat, fresh and delicious.

There's a Reason" for
Albert Grossneck Avers Mrs. Ogan
Used Charms So Husband Could
Sue; Crowd 3Iisses Court's
Joke About Horse.
A crowd that packed the courtroom
yesterday listened to testimony in the
20.000 suit brought by Wyman Ogan
against Albert Grossneck for alleged
alienatien of Mrs. Ogan's affections.
The case is being tried before Circuit
Judge Gantenbein. The hearing was
the first in the suit, and in its course
charges and counter-charges were
Mr. Ogan charges that between Jan
uary 1. 1814. and the present date Air.
Grossneck has gradually won his wife
away from him. and that he does not
dare to go home.
Mr. Grossneck and his attorney,
Charles J. Schnabel, in their defense,
aver that Mr. and Mrs. Ogan have
"framed ud" on Grossneck, who is re
puted to have some money. They
charge that Mrs. Ogan used her femi
nine charma deliberately to win Mr.
Grossneck's affections In order that Mr.
Ogan might sue.
Defendant Is Milkman.
Mr. Grossneck is a milkman and de
livered milk to the Ogan home. He
used to come while Mr. Ogan was away,
it is charged, and in that way he be
came acquainted with Mrs. Ogan.
Mrs. Cecilia Marshall. who has
watched the Ogan home to get evidence,
testified that she saw Mr. Grossneck
stop his wagon in front of the Ogan
house and go inside. He stayed a long
time, said Mrs. Marshall, so long that
his horse got tired of waiting, and
"Aryou sure his horse walked away
because, it was tired?" asked Attorney
Boon Cason, representing Ogan.
"Yes; he'd been standing still a long
time," was the answer.
"How did he act that you knew he
must be tired?" persisted the attorney-
"Oh. he walked like it."
Call Horse, Court Sawenla.
This line of questioning with . the
horse as a subject continued so long
that Judge Gantenbein got Urea.
"Why don't you call the horse as a
witness If you have to know so much
about him. said the court.
Somebody snickered a little. Then
the courtroom resumed Us customary
ouietude. The Judge still had tne iioor.
"If you asked the horse a question
his answer would proDaDiy oa neign.
continued the Judge without a smile.
His honor dodged, but it was unnec
essary. Jurors, lawyers, spectators and
clerks wore only an expression of pain
on their faces.
Courthouse attaches are framing for
Judge Gantenbein a membership cer
tificate in the Joe Miller Club.

Reliable evidence is abundant that women
are constantly being restored to health by
Lydia E. Pinkham's Vegetable Compound
The many testimonial letters that we are continually pub
lishing in the newspapers hundreds of them are all genu
ine, true and unsolicited expressions of heartfelt gratitude
for the freedom from suffering that has come to these
women solely through the use of Lydia E. Pinkham's
Money could not buy nor any kind of influence obtain
such recommendations ; you may depend upon it that any
testimonial we publish is honest and true if you have any
doubt of this write to the women whose true names and
addresses are always given, and learn for yourself.
Read this one from Mrs. Waters:
Camden, N.J. "I was sick for two years with nervous spells, and
my kidneys were affected. I had a doctor all the time and used a
galvanic battery, but nothing did me any good. I was not able to go
to bed, but spent my time on a couch or in a sleeping-chair, and soon,
became almost a skeleton. Finally my doctor went away for his
health, and my husband heard of Lydia !L Pinkham'B Vegetable
Compound and. got me some. In two months I got relief and now I
am like a new woman and am at my usual weight. I recommend
your medicine to every one and so does my husband." Mrs. Tillus
Waters, 530 Mechanic Street, Camden, N.J.
From Hanover, Penn.
IlANOTEit, Pa. "I was a very weak woman and suffered from
bearing down pains and backache. I had been married over four
years and had no children. Lydia E. Pinkham's Vegetable Compound
proved an excellent remedy for it made me a well woman. After
taking a few bottles my pains disapiieared, and we now have one of
the hnest boy babies you ever saw." Mrs. C. A. Kickrode, Il.F.L
Ho. 5, Hanover, l'a.
Now answer this question if you can. Why should a
woman continue to suffer without first giving Lydia E.
Pinkham's Vegetable Compound a trial ? You know that
it has saved many others why should it fail in your case?
For 30 years tydla C PlnkhAnVs Vegetable
Compound has been the standard remedyforfe
male ills. Jfo one sick with woman's ailments
does justice to herself if she does not try this fa
mous medicine made from roots and herbs, it
has restored so many suffering women to health.

"I had stomach trouble for 15 years.
Indigestion and frequent splitting head
aches were the most distressing symp

the most trouble has been entirely
cured by six weeks of the Akoz treat

I give Ako credit for my improved
condition. I am going to continue with
the treatment, feeling assured that in
