Wife Fell In Love with Husband "All
The wife of a well-known attorney
at law of Seward, Neb., tells the tale
worth reading: "My husband was
a. soldier 'in the Civil War ana was,
as he called himself, 'an old . coffee
cooler,' and had always drunk very
"About a. year ago he complained of
a feeling of faintness every time after
climbing his office stairs and was also
troubled by terrible headaches that al
most drove him wild.
"He gradually grew weaker and
weaker until his affliction culminated
in nervous collapse and for weeks he
seemed to be fading away from us in
spite of all our efforts.
"The physicians pronounced him
strong and well with no organic
trouble whatever and there seemed to
be nothing the matter except the
complete giving out of his nervous
"The doctors decided that coffee was
at the bottom of all his trouble and
ordered Postum Cereal in its place.
He improved daily since he quit coffee
and began drinking Postum and now
says he feels better than he has felt
for 20 years, headaches are gone, no
more fainting spells and is gaining in
flesh every day and he seems so much
younger and heartier and happier
than he has for years that I have
fallen in love with him over again.
"Now for my brother's case a few
years ago he had a peculiar trouble.
His tongue was swollen and sore at the
roots and covered underneath with
"He thought his affliction was of a
, cancerous nature and his doctor was
of the same opinion. He could
scarcely eat anything and became so
poor and run down he was simply a
nervous wreck. He consulted various
physicians- but none were able to
diagnose his case or help him in the
"At Irtst a doctor to whom he ap
plied said he believed my brother was
coffee poisoned a nd advised him to
quit coffee and drink Postum. He
gave him no medicine but told him to
ffive Postum fair trial and return to
him in 6 weeks. My brother had used
Postum only about ten days when the
festers disappeared from his tongue
and at the end of two weeks the sore
ness and swelling were gone and he
began to pick up in flesh and spirits.
"He has never touched coffee since
but drinks Postum all the time and has
never had the slightest return of the

wonder I can write a heartfelt testi
monial for Postum?" Name given by

Mrs. Nellie Whitney, a philanthro

in police court this morning, that she
did not believe in whisky or saloons.
Mrs. Whitney came to court volun
tarily to testify in favor of C. A. Dean,
who was arrested while intoxicated at
the Lyceum theater. Further testi
mony revealed that she was standing
by the ticket window when Dean was
pleading with the officers. She later
went to the Central station and bailed

Her pleadings, however, did not
move the court and Dean was given
the usual sentence of $10 or ten days.

W.B. Douglas is the favorte in the
competition for Judge Collins' seat on
the supreme bench. ' Capital friends
of the attorney general say that as
far as he is concerned it is all settled,
and General Douglas will be appointed
on the day that Judge Collins' resigna
tion is handed in.
The succession to the office of attor
ney general is still unsettled.
Within a day or two after Judge
Collins* resignation, James A. Martin
will resign his office as chairman of
the state board of control, to become
manager of the Collins* campaign.
Since Judge Collins decided to be a
candidate he has been in search of
a man well fitted to look after his in
terests. The jddge himself cannot do
much active work until his resigna
tion has taken effect, and even then
he cannot look after everything him
self. The general verdict of the Col
lins' men was that Martin was the
man. Overtures were made to him,
but it was some time before he would
consent to the insistent demands of
his friends. Now, it is understood, he
has yielded, and will begin active work
as soon as he resighs.
The question of his successor is al
ready being discussed, and it is thought
possible that the place may go to Hen
nepin county. The term for which the
appointment will be made expires in
James A. Martin is chairman of the
executive committee of the republican
state committee and a resident of St.

DIPHTHERIA IN SGHOOL
SITUATION IN IiYNDALE SCHOOL
SUGGESTS CLOSING O F SCHOOL
DISEASE IN MILD FORM.
Practically all the cases of diph
theria in the southern part of the city
are in the Lyndale school district, and
come either directly or indirectly from
the Lyndale school, Lyndale avenue
and Thirty-fourth street, making it
advisable that the school be fumi
gated and temporarily closed. This
is the opinion of Dr. Eugene S. Strout,
who has nine cases of diphtheria in
that district, and who knows of many
"There are at ^least twenty-five
cases directly traceable to conditions

this morning. "Cards are going up

Carron plumbing inspector, satisfies
him that some erroneous statements
have been made concerning the san

Dr. Hall wishes to remind parents
who are alarmed at the dangers which
beset their children, that the most cer
tain preventative of diphtheria known
to the medical world is antitoxin. Or
dinarily a normal injection will give
a person immunity for thirty days.
By having their children immunized,
says Dr. Hall, parents will save them
selves considerable anxiety, and it will
not be necessary to take their chil
dren out of school.

A Convention on Mosquito Exclusion.
On Dec. 16, in New York City, at
the roonis of the Board of Trade and
Transportation, a convention will be
held in the interests of mosquito ex
termination. It is expected that much
valuable inforzaation will be accumu
lated and that considerable good will
result from a concerted action to kill
off the little pests that are supposed
to spread malaria.
If you are trying to improve the
health of a community a much quick

regular use of golden grain belt beer,
the pure nerve tonic and health food.
It's delicious as well as invigorating.
