A "run down" condition Is
generally due to the failure of
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 ,
and in this way bring about last *

simply supply food material in
predigested form , and consequently

New Geyser In Yellowstone Park.
For a few days past there have been
indications of an eruption of seine
kind near the Fountain hotel in Yel
lowstone park , says a 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 150 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 hanker 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 age I was not
allowed to drink coffee , but as soon ns
I 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 me 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 I have been free
from the distressing symptoms that ac
companied the use of coffee. The nerv
ousness has entirely disappeared , nnd
I am ns steady of hand as a boy of
25 , though I am more than 92 years
old. I owe all this to Postum. "

The great success of Dr. Pierce's Golden Medical Dis
covery in curing weak stomachs , wasted bodies , weak
lungs , nnd obstinate nnd lingering coughs , is based on
the recognition of the fundamental truth that "Golden
Medical Discovery" supplies Nature with bodybuilding -
ing , tissue-repairing , muscle-making materials , in con
densed and concentrated form. With this help Nature
supplies the necessary strength to the stomach to digest
food , build up the body and thereby throw oil lingering
obstinate coughs. The "Discovery" rs-cstablislies the
digestive and nutritive organs in sound health , purifies
nnd enriches the blood , nnd nourishes the nerves in
short establishes sound vigorous health.

His experiments prove that
good oatmeal such as Quaker
Oats not oivly furnishes
the best food for the human be
ing , but eating it strengthens
and enlarges the thyroid gland
this gland is intimately con
nected with the nourishing pro
cesses of the body.
In conclusion he says
"It seems probable therefore
that the bulk and brawniness of
the Northerners ( meaning the

due to the stimulation of the
thyroid gland by oatmeab porridge
