Cven When the Facta About Coffee
It Is curious how people will refuse
to believe what ono can clearly see.
Tell the average man or woman that
the slow but cumulative poisonous
effect of caffeine the alkaloid in tea
and coffee tends to weaken the heart,,
upset the nervous system and cause
Indigestion, and they may laugh at
you if they don't know the facts.
Prove it by science or by practical
demonstration in the recovery of cof
fee drinkers from the above condi
tions, and a large per cent of the hu
man family will shrug their shoulders, f
take somo drugs and keep on drink
ing coffee or tea.
"Coffee never agreed with me nor
with several members of our house
hold," writes a lady. "It enervates,
depresses and creates a feeling ot
languor and heaviness. It was only
by leaving off coffee and using Postunr
that we discovered the cause and way
out of these ills.
"The only reason, I am. sure, why
FoBtum is not used altogether to the
exclusion of ordinary coffee is. many
persons do not know and do not seem,
willing to learn the facts and how to
prepare this nutritious beverage.
There's only one way according to
directions bolt Jt fully 15 minutes.
Then it is delicious." Namo given by
