the digestive organs to properly
digest the food. Dr. D. Jayne'a
Vermifuge tones up the digestive
organs so that they supply the
body with proper nourishment ,

New Geyser In Yellowstone Park.
For a few days past there have been
indications of an eruption of some
kind near the Fountain hotel In Yel
lowstone park , says n dispatch from
Mammoth Hot Springs , Wyo. Now a
new and magnificent geyser has bro
ken out in full force about 100 feet
north of the regular Fountain geyser
near Fountain hotel. This new geyser ,
which does not appear to affect any of
the others In that vicinity , played to a
height of ICO to 200 feet , throwing off
immense quantities of hot water , mud
and steam. The new geyser does not
play regularly as does Old Faithful ,
but at short Intervals , the eruptions
occurring five or six hours apart , and
lasting about one hour.

A BANKER'S NERVE
Broken by Coffee and Restored by
A banker needs perfect control of
the nerves , and a clear , quick , accu
rate brain. A prominent banker of
Chattanooga tells how ho keeps him
self in condition :
"Up to 17 years of ago I was not
allowed to drink coffee , but as soon as
1 got out In the world I began to use
It and grew very fond of it. For some
years I noticed no bad effects from its
use , but In time It began to affect me
unfavorably. My hands trembled , the
muscles of my face twitched , my men
tal processes seemed slow and in other
ways my system got out of order.
These conditions grew so bad at last
that I had to give up coffee altogether.
"My attention having been drawn to
Postum , I began its use on leaving off
the coffee , and It gives mo pleasure to
testify to its value. I find it a delicious
beverage ; like it just as well as I did
coffee , and during the years that I
have used Postum 1 have been free
from the distressing symptoms that ac
companied the use of coffee. The nerv
ousness has entirely disappeared , and
I am as steady of hand as a boy of
25 , though I am more than 92 years
old. I owe all this to Postum. "
