Washington. December 12.—Pit si

for third term. All doubt on till
point was tonight dispelled by th
tautJiorltaSive statement fjoni Hi
white in use tonight that Mr. Itoos.
velt still adheres to the declaration
of renunciation made on the night of
the election three years ago. In tit ■
statement issued tonight President
Roosrveli says he has not changed,
and shall not change, the decision
comuiuniottc d to the American people
It appears that President Roosevelt
has been awaiting the call for the Tc-
publican national convention to afford
the proper opportunity for making ills
I>osition clear and unmistakable, thus
l aving the Held clear for Fairbanks,
Toft, Cannon. Knox, Foraker and oth

for the republican nomination. The
president's statement follows:
"On the night after election I mad.-
the following announcement:
•• 1 am deeply sensible of the honor
done me hv the American people in
thus expressing their confidence in
what I have done and have tried to
do. 1 appreciate to the full the
solemn responsibility this confidence
imposes on me, and I shall do oil that
Is in my power not to forfeit it. On
the 4th of March, next, I shall have
served three and a half years, and
this three and a half years constitute
my first term. The wise custom
which limits the president to two
terms regards the substance and not
the form, and under no circumstances
will I be a candidate for or accept an
“I have not changed, and shall not
change the decision thus announced."

he notion that meat is necessary
for real strength and tlie foundation
>f solid Ilesh is now no longer as pre
valent as formerly.
Excessive meat eaters ure usually
luggisli a part of the time because
hey are not able to fully digest their
food, and the undigested portion is
changed into what is practically a
kind of poison that acts upon the
toed and nerves, thus getting all
through the system.
1 was a heavy meat eater.' writes
an Ills. man. "and up to two years
ago, was in very poor health. I suffer
ed with indigestion so that I only
weighed 95 pounds.
Then I heard about Grape-Nuts
and decided to try it. My wife laugh
ed at me at first but when I gained
to 125 pounds and felt so fine, she
thought, she would eat Grape-Nuts
“Now she is fat and well and has
gained 40 pounds. We never havo in
digestion any more and seldom feel
the desire for meat. A'neighbor of
ours, GS years old, was troubled with
Indigestion for years; was a heavy
meat inter, and now since he lias
been eating Grai>c-Xnts regularly, he
says he is well and never has indi
gestion. I could name a lot of per
sons who have really been cured of
indigestion by changing from a heavy
meat diet to Grape-Nuts.” “There’s a
