"Some of my friends have asked

valuable paper of last week, to give
them a more explicit report of the
population of the city.
"The lotal number of voters 21

"This makes an average of two
and nine-tenth (2 0-10) voters to each
house in the city. Add to this the
women ami children and we will
have an average of four and jiiue
tenths (4 9-10) to each family in the
city a trifle more than the figure
used by the federal government in
"This estimate of four and nine
tenths for the whole city is based on
my findings in the Second ward.
"Perhaps this estimate will not
hold good througout the city, as it
may be a trifle too high, but if it
does hold good it will show Akron
to have a population of 47,877, as fol

which is an eastern trust, does not
operate extensively west of Pitts

tain an agency in Chicago, from

ern trust to save themselves.
Tt is understood that paper mills

have been highly pleased with it.
It is one of the finest things for
nursing mothers that I have over

strength and increases the supply of

instead of water and found it most

person remarks about the great im
provement, wo never fail to tell them
that wo attribute his gain in strength
and genoral health, to the free use of
Postuin Food Cotfee, and this has
led many friends to use it for them
selves and children.
I have always cautioned friends to
whom I have spoken about Postuin,
to follow directions in making it, for
unless it is boiled fifteen or twenty
minutes, it is qui to tasteless. On the
other hand, when properly made, it
is very delicious. I .want to thank
you for the benefits we have derived
from the use of your Postuin Coffee.
