that was very painful, accompanied
by a smothering sensation and faint

harder to boar. I took nil Ports of pat

"Tho doctors frequently told me
that coffeo waa not good for mo; but
without coffeo I felt as It I had no
breakfast I finally decided nbout 2
years ago to abandon tho uso of cof
feo entirely, nnd ns I had read n great
deal about Postum I concluded to try
that for a breakfast beverago.
"I liked tho tasto of It and was pan
Ucularly pleased to notlco that it did
noi 'como up' as coffoo used to. Tho
bad spoils with my heart grew losa

altogether, and I havo not had an at
