Sl ltE TO ASK
The Kind of Coffee when 7ostnm is
Well-made. '
'Three great coffee drinkers were my
old school friend and her two daughters.
"They were always complaining and
taking medicine. I determined to give
them Postum instead of coffee when they
la I ted me, so without saying anything
to them about it, I made a big pot of
posium the first morning, uning four
heaping teaspoonfula to the pint of water
and let It boil twenty minutes, stirring
down occasionally.
'Before the meal was half over, each
one passed up her cup to be refilled, re
marking how fine the coffee waa. The
mother puked for a third cup and Inquired
as to the brand of coffee 1 used. I didn't
answer her question Just then, for I had
heard her say a while before that ahe
didn't like Postum unless It was more
than half old-fashioned coffee.
"After breakfastl told her that the
coffee she like so well at breakfast was
pure Postum and the reason ahe liked It
was because It was properly made, that
la, it waa boiled long enough to bring out
the flavour. .
"I have been brought up from a nervous
wretcbed invalid, to a fine condition of
physical health by leaving off coffee and
using Postum.
"I am doing all 1 can to help the world
out of coffee slavery to Postum freedom,
and have earned the gratitude of many,
many frlenda." Read "The Road to Well
