Are Really Unfit for a Hot Climate
A sarcastic one said, "A person who won't quit the coffee habit when heart and nerves
are crying for relief, has less stability of character than a pair of butter legs in hades." Truly
a melting remark. .
seems hard-hearted to poke fun at the coffee "crank' "who "Just can't give up my
coffee," for the habit sometimes becomes a disease just as truly as the whisky habit, but it is
easy for the worst old coffee toper to shift over to Postum Food Coffee, provided it is well made.
Postum has tho deep, seal brown color of drip coffee and a certain snappy flavor, not
of the rank, strong, bitter coffees but much like the mild and high grades of Java.

parts of the body and each little nerve sack or envelope is filed with a soft pulpy gray sub
stance that is really the life and energy of the nerve. Coffee and other stimulant narcotic poisons
tend to destroy this gray matter and when enough is broken down, nervous prostration or other
form of disease will set in. The trouble may sho w in weakened heart, lungs, 6tomach, bowels,
eyes or any- other organ, for the lack of life power or nervous energy is likely to attack the
weakest part first.
The remedy is (and get to work in time) to quit the drug and therefore stop the daily
destruction. Then take a liquid food such as Postum and go to rebuilding.
That is a sure and dependable road to Wejlville.
