A PLUMP FIGURE
First-Class. Telling Argu
"About a year ago a doctor and his
wife came to board with us. We al
ready had Miss G., who was at that
time thin and yellow and considerably
out of health. "
The first morning the new boarders
came to the table as guests, the
young lady remarked as she sat her
cup down, " 1 his is coffee!" while the
doctor added. "Not at all like the
poor coffee they have been giving us
at the hotel". I smiled behind my nap-
Kin and asked if either of tbeiu ever
used l'ostum Food Coffee. Tho doc
tor said he had tasted it. but it was
weak, miserable stuff. Miss G. had
heard of it and wished she could try
I said nothinjr, but at the end of
three months, when Miss G. was ready
to leave us for a new field of labor,
said, "I have been giving you l'ostum
Food Coffee all the lime'you have been
here." "What, is that coffee, Postum ?"
she said. I remarked that I had no
ticed with great pleasure, her daily
gain in health, and now that she was
leaving us after only three mouths at
our table, she had rosy cheeks and a
plump hgure, which was all the argu
ment anvone needed to prove the fact
that she had been well cared for, and
the reason for her gain in health was
the use of Postum Food Coffee, for no
other change had been made of any
account, in her food.
The doctor was very much delighted
with the experiment, and discovered
that where he had tried Postum be
fore, he had been unfortunate in hav
ing it underboiled. l'ostum must be
boiled lo or 20 minutes to bring out
the delicious llavor, and then it wiil
suit the taste of anyone." .Mrs. Flor-,
