myself, but I waa forcod to give up a good
position and aeek the advice of the family
doctor. He said neurasthenia and sent ms
to a great nerve specialist. So, tor tour
months I was massaged and dosed with
medicine, but all to no benefit; then I went
to New York and consulted Dr . He
sent me to another great specialist, and he,
in turn, sent ms to Sanitarium,
where I stayed for a long time.
"It waa the same old story. I waa dosed
with medicine and massaged and bathed
Finally I left there and went to another
specialist, who told me I would only live a
tew months. This rathsr frightened me
and I placed myself under Dr. . He
said the stomach wss at fault and probably
I had not been given the right kind of

ment and Insisted that I us three or four
teaapoonfuls ot Grape-Nuts each meal. t
waa under hla car for several months. ' I

stored to twin ueuUl and bodily vigor.
"He explained to me that Grape-Nuts
contains a goodly portion of potash, a
nerve and brain food, and that the food b
lng partially digested, the system could
make use ot It easily. At any rate, I got
well, and both the doctor and myself know
that Orape-Nuta made It possible.
