Among the articles found on the body
was a hypodermic syringe and a quantity
of morphine. ...

Farewell Letter to His
SEATTLE, Sept. 19.— W. MZ-Waymlre.
operator at the Northern Pacific station
in Hoquiam. and husband of the station
agent there, has fled the country and a
check-up of his accounts shows a short
age of $3000 or more. Waymire went to
Aberdeen on his ' wheel last Saturday
morning and boarded the train. Arriving
at Centralia, he wrote his wife a letter,
stating that by the time the missive
reached her he would be out of his mis
ery. The checking up of his accounts
immediately began ._ and has proceeded
far enough to wa»\ant the railway com
pany in putting. detectives on his track.
The tenor of Waymire's letter indicates
that he contemplated committing suicide.
The Waymires were both popular in
Hoquiam and the news of his alleged de
falcation was a shock to the community.
It is hard td tell how his defalcation
could be large, unless he had abstracted
some of the freight and passenger funds,
as well as the telegraph receipts. Last
year there was a mysterious robbery at
the depot "i at Hoquiam,. which caused a
little hushed comment not entirely com
plimentary to Waymire, but an Investiga
tion satisfied the railroad company and
nothing more was said of it.

cur stomachs since we commenced to use
it. Our eyes do not water any more when
In the wind, our cheeks and lips are red
Instead of blue or purple when we are out
in the cold; the drowsy feeling has left
and the prickly feeling has entirely left
my eon. We use it twice a day and give
it freely to my 20 months old babe. We
find U better and cheaper than coffee. We
cannot epeak too highly of Its merits, for
we know we owe the change in our health
to Postum Cereal Food Coffee." • •
"We were discussing it at table one day
and my daughter said. 'I know it is cof-
fee that hurts me. for when I do not
drinfc it I do not have that lump in my
stomach.' My boy said. 'A lump is noth-
ing, every time I drink coffee my fingers
prickle just as though they were asleep.'
I v.-as both scared and astonished at -such
information, and told them; I had made
the last cup of coffee I ever would for
.home use. I got a package of Postum
.Tood Coffee and tried it for our next
rr.eal and we soon learned to like it and
ihink it better than coffee. .'¦'.;•"
A csse in point. Mrs. C. E. Knapp of
Eiyria. O., says: "Six months ago we
were a family of Invalids; my husband,
myself and two children were all afflicted
'with stGmach trouble. I wtfuld get so
faint before it was time for regular
meals, and after eating had pain and dis-
tress In the Ftomach, which felt as though
there was a hard lump in there. I felt
drowsy and stupid most of the time. If
1 was out in the wind my eyes would
water so St hindered me- from seeing.
"My son was the worst afflicted. His
eyes blurred so they hindered his pro-
gress in school and we thought it would
be necessary to have them treated. His
teacher finally had him bring his reader
home with word that I have him read an
hour each .day out of school. He c- 1
r.ot read a paragraph without stopping
to wipe his eyes or close them. "We were
great coffee drinkers, especially my boy,
tut jiever thought that was the cause of
our trouble until I read an article on the
subject In the Cleveland paper.
Psrer.ts are often advised to get glasses
fcr their children by the school authori-
ties, who attribute the weak, watery con-
ditioa of the eyes of the child to some de-
fect in the vision, and do not realize that
the trouble may arise from the common
practice of coffee drinking.
