Food for! Mothor biuI Child.
"My husband has been unable to
drink coffee for several years, so we
( were very glad to give Postum Food
Coffeo a trial and when we under-
' stood that by long boiling it would
bring out the delicious flavor, we have
been highly pleased with it.
It Is one of the finest things for nurs
ing mothers that I have ever seen. It
IceepB up the mother's strength and in-
creases the supply of nourishment for
ftho child if partaken of freely. I
drank it between meals instead of wa
ter and found it most beneficial.
Our five-year-old boy has been very
delicate since birth and has developed
slowly. He was white and bloodless.
I began to give him Postum freely and
you would bo surprised at the change.
When any person remarks about the
great improvement, we never fail to
tell them that we attribute his gain in
strength and general health, to the
free use of Postum Food' Coffee, and
this has led many friends to use it for
themselves and children.
I have always cautioned friends to
whom I have spoken about Postum, to
follow directions in making it, for un
less it is boiled fifteen or twenty min
utes, it is quite tasteless. On the
other-hand, when properly made, it is
very delicious. I want to thank you
for the benefits we have derived from
the use of your Postum Coffee." Mrs.

retary of agriculture, Norman J. Cole
man of Missouri, who was the first oc
cupant of -that office in the latter

Write a Postal
To Get Well?
Send me no money, but simply writo
me a postal if you are not well. Pay
when, you get well.
I 'will send you a book that tells
how a lifetime of study has enabled me
to strengthen the inside nerves. Those
are the nerves that operate the stom
ach, kidneys, heart, womanly organ
ism, etc. Weakness Of theso orennn
means .weakness of those nerves. Nervo
strength alone makes any organ do it3
I will send you, too, an order on
your nearest druggist for six bottles
of Dr. Shoop's Restorative. Use it for
a month, and if it succeeds, pay him
$5.50 for it. If not, I will pay him my
self. No matter how difficult your case;
no matter what you have tried. If my
book shows you that your trouble is
nerve weakness and most sickness is
I will warrant; my Restorative to
I fail sometimes, but not often. My.
records show that 39 out' of 40 who got
those six bottles pay, and pay gladly..
I have learned that most neonln am
honest with a .physician .who cures
them. That is all I ask. If I fail, I
don't expect a .penny from you.
Mine is the only way to restore vital
nerve power. Other treatments bring
but fleeting results at best. If you
want to be well, let me send you an or
der for the medicine. If it cures pay
$5.50. I leave the decision to you.
Simply atato which
books you want, and
address Dr. Shoop,
