STICK TO IT
Until Coffee Hits You Hard.
-'. It is about as well to advise people
to stick to coffee until they get hit
hard enough, so that they will never
forget their experience, although it is
rather unpleasant to have to look back
to a half dozen years of invalidism,
money and opportunity thrown away,
which is really the terrible price for
the weakest kind of a "mess of pottage."-
A woman writes, and her letter, is
condensed to give the facts in a short

like a toper to his 'cups, notwithstand
