WAITED 30 YEARS
For the Proper Food.
A man who was a seml-lnvalld for ao
years got well In about a month when he
found the right food. Ho says: "When
I was 1?> years of age I had a sevore
attack of Typhoid fever and after almost
starving to death I was loft in a. pitiable
"My nervous Bystom was ao shattered
that I had to walk with a cane for six
months after I got on my foet and my
stomach was terribly distended. This
was thirty years ago, and since that
time I have never known health, although
I had tried doctor after doctor, until six
months ago I saw an article about Grape
Nuts that impressed mo so I thought I
would try It.
'So I gave Grape-Nuts a trial, more as
something: to eat than with any Idea It
would help mo. My Improvement com?
menced immediately and has kept right
up until now I have used seven packages
and I feel like another person. 1 am
In better health than ? have been since
boyhood, and am strong and contented.
