that this voices the sentiment of the

thize with your d iss in being so un
fortunate as to be governed by such a
minority. They, whoever they may

Unless we receive a communication
to the contrary, we will consider this
challenge as wholly unauthorized by
tho senior class. However, we do
not waive any of our rights by this.

FOUND ON THE SKIN
Phosphate Direct from the Mraln.
We know that active brain work
throws out the phosphate of potash,
for this product is found on the skin
after excessive brain work, therefore,
brain workers, iu order to keep well,
must have proper food containing
phosphate of potash to ui-:kly and
surely rebuild the useU-up tissue.
That one can obtain such food has
been proven in thousands of cases
among users of Postum Cereal Food
Coffee and Grape-Nuts.
lioth contain phosphate of potash
in minute particles, just as it is fur-nished-by
nature in the grains.
This product makes from albumen
the gray matter that builds the brain
and lilies the nerve centers.
In no way can this gray matter be
made except by the action of phos
phate of potash upon albumen, and
this mineral should be introduced to
the body just as it com from na
ture's laboratory, and not from the
dni store. The system is more or less
fastidious alout taking up the needed
elements, and, as might be suspected,
it will favor the products of Mother
Nature rather than the products of
tbe drug shop, however valuable they
may be for certain uses.
Athletes, lawyers, journalists, doc
tors, ministers, business men and
others, who earn their liviug by the
use of the brain, are using both Pos
tum Food Coffee and Grape-Nuts
Food. Both products are manufact
ured for a reason. They were orig
inated by an expert, and tbe regen
erative value of both the Postum Cof
fee and the food has been demon
strated beyond question. AH first
class grocers sell both Postum Cereal
and Grape-Nuts, and the Postum Ce
real Co.. Ltd , manufactures them at
the battle Creek factories.
There la a Claaa of People
who are injured by the use of coffee.
Recently there has been placed in all
the grocery stores a new preparation
called Grain-O, made of pure grains,
that takes the place of coffee. Tbe
most delicate stomach receives it
without distress, and but few can tell
it from coiTee. It does not cost over
one-lourth as much. Children may
drink it with great benelit. 15 cents
