Her Reason.
Not long ngo there waa tried In an
Ohio court a suit for damages where
in tho principal witness, a womnn liv
ing near Dayton, wns induced to come
to court only after several subpoenas
had been served upon her.
When tho dilatory witness wa3 final
ly brought before hla honor, he said
In hla sovercst tone:
"What reason can you assign,
madnm, for disobeying the summons
of the court?"
"I ain't got none, Jedge," answered
tho woman, meekly, "only we've got
small-pox down to our place, an' I
thought mebbe you'd bo kinder pro
Judlced agin it." Illustrated.
Gained 20 lbs. on Grape-Nuts.
There's a wonderful difference be
tween a food which merely tastes good
nnd ono which builds up strength and
good healthy flesh.
It makes no diffcrenco how much wo
ent unless wo can dlgcat It. It ia
not really food to tho system until
it ib nosorueu. A iorKstnie woman
"I hnd been a sufferer for ten years,
with stomach nnd liver trouble, nnd
had got so bad that tho least bit of
food such aa I then knew, would glvo
mo untold misery for hours after
"I lost flesh until I was almost a
shadow of my original solf nnd mv
friends wero quite alarmed about me.
"First I dropped coffee and used
Postum, then began to uso Grape-Nuts
although I hnd little faith it would do
mo any good.
"But I continued to uso the food nnd,
hnvo gained twenty pounds in weight
and feel like another person lu every
way. I feel as if llfo had truly begun'
nnow for mo.
"I can cat anything I like now in
moderation, suffer no ill offccla, bo on
my feet from morning until night.
Whereas a year ago thoy had to send
mo away from homo for rest whllo
others cleaned houso for me, this
spring Thavo been able to do it mysolt
all nlono,
"My breakfast is simply Grnpe-Nuts
with cream and a cup of Postum, with
sometimes an egg nnd a ploco of toast,
but generally only Grape-Nuts and
Postum. And I can work until noon
nnd not fcol as tired ns ono hour's
work would hnvo mado aio a year ngo."
"There's a Reason." '
