Chairman bweri 'of ' the senate hanking

to be the advantages to them of tho
Olass-Owen currency bill and stated that
it would relieve the banking business
from tho control of a half dozen ''very

this country would learn a much needed
lesson In finance," said he.

the system of approximately 13,000

The effect of repeated doses of coffee, on those,
who are susceptible to caffeine poisoning, is so .com
plex that it is difficult to foretell where its hurt will
be most serious; in Heart, Head, Eyes, Nerves or where.
The stroke of trouble will come somewhere if the
daily doses are. persisted in.
Of course if anyone prefers to treat his body in
that way it is useless to suggest relief.
Let him "follow tho trail" until badly wounded.

Others quit tho foolish, losing game beforo fixed
1 chronic disease sets in.
There is a mighty army of sensible ones, however,
who have bravely tested the truth with their own bod
ies to see whether or not it was the truth that coffee
caused their ailments.
It's an easy test. Quit coffee absolutely for 10 days.
Take Postum hot and well-made and keep track of the
change toward health day by day.
It's tho most exquisite pleasure in tho world to be
perfectly well with all the delicate and beautifully ad

deceptive of which is caffeine in coffee.

Meet it bravely with head up and a hearty hand
clasp. Truth thus made welcome will prove your best
Theso are facts without regard to our own opinion,
or to whether or not you use Postum.
However it is well to consider that famous food
drink because it supplies a hot beverage of the deep
seal-brown color of coffee, which turns to the rich
golden-brown when cream is added.
It has a snappy fluvor much like tho old-time real
Java, but there is no "sting" in it, no caffeine or other
dmg of any sort. It is skillfully manufactured of wheat
apd a trace of New Orleans molasses.
. It comes in two forms. One called Regular Postum,
must bo boiled full 15 minutes.
The other, Instant Postum, is in powder form and
a level teaspoonful in a cup of hot water makes tho
beverage instantly. Grocers keep both kinds.
