string of fish they caught.

east of the track. After watch

going in waist deep, and knocked
a fish senseless. He waded out
with the fish, which was a carp
and weighed 17 1-2 pounds. In
a short time the water was filled
with men and boys armed with
gigs, pitchforks, guns and clubs,

coffee imitation ever yet produced. This
clever coffee substitute was recently
produced by Dr. Shoop of Racine, Wis.
Not a grain of real coffee in it either
Dr. Shoop's Health Coffee is made
from pure toasted grains, with malt
nuts, etc. Really it would fool an ex
pertwho might drink it for coffee.
No 20 or 30 minutes tedious boiling.
'Made in a minute" says the doctor.
