"Until recently," writes a Washing

Like many other girls alone in a
large city, I lived at a boarding
house. For breakfast it was mush,
greasy meat, soggy cakes, black coffee,
"After a few months of this diet 1
used to feel sleepy and heavy in the
mornings. My work seemed a terrible
effort, and I thought the work was to
blame too arduous.
"At home I had heard my father
speak of a young fellow who went long
distances in the cold on Grape-Nuts
and cream and nothing more for break
fast. "I concluded if it would tide him
over a morning's heavy work, it might
help me, so on my way home one night
I bought a package and next morning
I had Grape-Nuts and milk for breakfast.-

"I stuck to Grape-Nuts, and in less
than two weeks noticed improvement.
I can't just tell how well I felt, but I
remember I used to walk the 12 blocks
to business and knew how good it was
simply to live.
"As to my work well, did you ever
feel the delight oS having congenial
work and the strength to perform it?
That's how I felt. I truly believe there
is life' and vigor in every grain r.f
