AN OLD TIMER

A woman who has used Postum
since it came upon the market knows
from experience the wisdom of us
ing Postum in place of coffeo if one
values health and a clear brain. She
"At the time Postum was first put
on the market I was suffering from
nervous dyspepsia, and my physician
had repeatedly told me not to use
tea or coffee. Finally I decided to
take bis advice and try Postum. I
got a package and had it carefully
prepared, finding it delicious to the
taste. So I continued its use and very
soon Its beneficial effects convinced
me of Us value, for I got well of my
nervousness and dyspepsia. ,
"My husband had been drinking cof
fee all his life until It had affected
his nerves terribly, and I persuaded
him to shift to Postum. It was easy
to get him to make the change for

tainly worked wonders for him.
"We Boon learned that Postum does
not exhilarate nor depress and does
not stimulate, but steadily and honest

"To make a long story snort, oar en
tire family continued to use Postum
with satisfying results, as shown Id
our fine condition of health and we
have noticed a rather unexpected Im
provement In brain and nerve power."
Increased brain and nerve power
always follow the use of Postum In
place of coffer, sometimes In a very
marked manner. "There's a Reason."

STATUE TO GEN. JOHN MORGAN
j Design of One to Be Erected at Lex-,
Ington by Kentucky Daughters of
Lexington, Ky. An equestrian
statue of Gen. John Hunt Morgan wilt
be erected In front of the Fayette
county court house in this city, per-;
mission for which was granted by the
fiscal court of the county several days
ago. The statue was accepted by the
committee from the Kentucky division
of the I'nlted Daughters of the Con
federacy here recently after a half;
day meeting in which several mem
bers of the 'committee, notably Mrs.
Equestrian Statue of Gen, John H.
James L. Arnold of Covington, Mrs.,
James II. Mulligan of Lexington and
Mrs. John I. Woodbury of Louis
ville fought hard to prevent Its ac
ceptance. The objections of .these members
were based on a statement made to
the committee by Gen. Basil Duke of
Louisville, who contended that the fig
use of the man was wholly unlike
Gen. Morgan in life, .as It made
him appear too weak chested and
more like a consumptive, while as" a
matter of fact. Gen. Morgan stood six
feet in his stockings, was a man of
large build, with broad shoulders and
a massive chest.
- Local and visiting horsemejyWho
spent much time at the studio during
the past few weeks, pronounced the
model of the horse the most perfect
they had ever seen. The Daughters
of the Confederacy are now engaged
in raising $15,000 to pay for the work,
which Is expected to be cast In bronge
and placed In position some time in
the coming fall.
APPOINTED TO. HAWAIIAN POST
George W. Woodruff Named for Dis
trict Judgeship by President, But
May Be Transferred.
Washington. George W. Woodruff
has been named by President Taft to
be United States district Judge for
Hawaii, but some objection having
arisen the appointment is being re
considered and may be withdrawn.
Mr. Woodruff was a noted football
player at the University of Pennsyl
vania, and his strenuousness in athlet
ics recommended him to President
Roosevelt so greatly that he was ap
pointed to a position in the bureau of
forestry, and later became assistant
.attorney general for the interior de
When the department of Justice was
reorganized President Taft appointed
some one to take Mr. Woodruff's
place. Hut Mr. Woodruff's friends
brought pressure to bear, and the
president named him to the judicial
position In Hawaii. The appointment
George W. Woodruff.
met with strong opposition on the
ground that Mr. Woodruff had not had
sufficient Judicial experience to fit him
for the place. The fact that many of
Mr. Woodruff's rulings In the Interior
department had been overruled by the
courts was quoted, and the president
suspended action for the time, and, it
Is thought, may transfer Mr. Woodruff
to Borne other position or withdraw
his name entirely.
Packing with Ferns.
It has recently been discovered that
the leaves of the fern plant, which
grows almost anywhere, Is an excel
lent preservative for pncklng articles
of food, fruit and even meat. It Is
suld that on the Isle of Man fresh
herrings are packed In ferns and ar
rive on the market In as fresh a con
dition as when they were shipped. A
number of experiments have demon
strated that potatoes packed In ferns
keep many months longer than those
packed in straw, In fuct, potatoes
packed In fern leaves are as fresh In
the springtime as when they were
first dug in the fall
Save the Babies.
iNFAUT MORTALITY is something frightful. Wo can' hardly realize that ef
all the children born in civilized countries, twentytwo per cent, or nearly
one-quarter, dio before they reach ono year; thirtysoven per cent, or more
than one-third, before they are five, and one-half before thoy aro fifteen!
We do not hoeitate to say that a timely uso of Castoria would save a ma-:
jority of these precious lives. Neither do wo hesitate to say that many of theso
infantile deaths aro occasioned by the uso of narcotic preparations. Drops, tinctures
and soothing syrups sold for children's complaints contain moro or less opium, or
morphine. They are, in considerable quantities, deadly poisons. In any quantity
thoy stupefy, retard circulation and load to congestions, sickness, death. Castoria
operates exactly the reverse, but yon must seo that it boars the signaturo of
Chas. H. Fletcher. Castoria causes the. blood Jo circulate, properly, opens tho
pores of tho skin and allays fever.
