Henry Havel, a farmer, crossing the
Mississippi with a load of coal, broke

swept to his death in the swift fleeting

Havel's home was near Yallcv Citv.

was about iio vears of aire and leaves
a large family. He had purchased a
load of -1) bushels of eoal at the
Hampton blulTs, on the Illinois sid

Let Me Make the Krtt Cup For Ynu."
I may be the victim of a fad; if so.
it is a healthful one. I mav be the
dupe of fancy; if s'. it is a pleasant
nc. I have alwavs rather disdained
fads -tnd disliked figments of the im
agination, but there are a few facts I
can make atliuavii io.
From early childhood I have used
colTec. The taste was uo doubt.
hereditary, coming from a long line
f colTce loving ancestors, who be
queathed me a complexion to match.
hen others spoke of the injurious
fleet of eolTee. I smiled in a lofty
ort of wav and took an extra cup.
md when a friend who is an excellent
judge of the good things of this world
left oft coiTee and tried 1 ostum, I re
garded her as the victim of a fad, anil
told her so.
Finally mv health began to fail.
and I thought perhaps there might lie
some truth in the statement that cof
fee was at the bottom of it, so I tried
leaving it oil, but the meals were no
meals at all.
That was not imagination, neither
was the headache, morbid listlessuess
and -general derangement of the sys
tem. I found my coffee habit was
not to le lightly thrown aside, and be
came very much vexed at my own
weakness. '-Try my plan"" ray
friend said, and in my extremity, I
linally yielded. She gave me some
Postum which 1 boiled about live
minutes and sipped it somewhat dis
dainfully. The color was good and
the fragrance, but the taste was flat.
When my friend inquired, sLe shook
her head and smiled. "Five minutes,
when I told you 15: oh ye of little
faith. Let me make the next cup for
you." She did s o, and it was a reve
lation. For a week I continued its use with
great benctit. even the bad taste in
my mouth had disappeared. Hum
bly I sought my friend and said: "If
you will tell me where I can get Pos
tum. I shall continue its use."' She
smiled and remarked. "I am afraid
you are the victim of a fad-" I took
tin? home thrust as gracefully as pos
sible, well enough satisfied to be
joked, inasmuch as I have lieen so
very much helped by the discontinu
ance of eolTee and the use af Postum.

Some Facts Regarding the Rapid
Increase of Heart Troubles.
Do Not Ite

Heart troubles, at least among the
Americans, are certainly increasing
and while this may Ik' largely due to
the excitement and worry ot American
business life, it is more often the re

Ileal organic disease is incurable
but not one casein a hundred of heart
trouble is organic.
The close relation Wtween heart
trouble and poor digestion is because
both organs are controlled by the
same great nerves, the sympathetic
In another way, also, the heart is
affected by the form of poor digestion
which causes gas ami fermentation
from half digested food. There is a
feeling of oppression and heaviness in
the chest caused bv pressure of the
distended stomach on the heart and
lungs, interfering with their action
hence arises palpitation and short
Poor digestion also poisons the
blood, making it thin and watery
which irritates and weakens the heart
The most sensible treatment for
heart trouble is to improve the diges
tion and to insure the prompt assimil
ation of food.
This can be done bv the regular use
ifter meals of some safe, pleasant and
eileclive digestive preparation, like
Stuart's Dyspepsia. Tablets, which
mav be found at most drug stores and
which contain valuable, harmless di
restive elements in a pleasant, con
It is safe to say that the regular,
