A bright young lady tells how- she
came to be acutely sensitive as to the
taste of coffee:
"My health had been very poor for
several, years," she says. "I loved
coffee and drank It for breakfast, but
only learned by accident, as it were,
that it was the cause of the constant,
dreabful headaches from which I suf
fered every day, and of the nervous
ness that drove sleep from my pillow
and so deranged my stomach thu

contains caffeine, the sama drug imind

that I was advised by my doctor tn Rt
to a hospital. There they gave n;r

since, and eat Grape-Nuts for my
breakfast I have no more headaches
and feel better than I have for years."
