A CoiSfee Cup j
Over 7h Grains of Caffeine
Physicians recognize this drug to be of poisonous effect upon stomach,
heart and nerves. Scientists employed by the U. S. Government found, in the
famous Rabbit Case, that an amount of caffeine equivalent to that contained in
two average cups of coffee killed a rabbit.
What wonder then, if you are a coffee-drinker, that you suffer from indigestion, heart disturbance, headache and
biliousness, sleeplessness, or nerve irritation.
Multiply 2 y3 grains of caffeine by the number of cups of coffee you drink each
day and you will determine the amount of poisor. you give yourself daily.
Eminent physicians are protesting against the present use of coffee. (Your family doctor can vouch for this.)
The aches and ills of your own body also protest when the burden becomes too heavy.
Doesn't your own common sense suggest that you quit coffee now?
The New Food-drink,
offers ttie easy way
This charming table beverage furnishes a hot drink of remarkable payability. It has a rich seal brown color
which changes to golden brown when cream ia added. Tasting much like high grade Java, it makes the ideal cup for
those who want to get away from coffee troubles,
Instant Postum requires no boiling
It is made "quick as a wink" by pouring hot water upon a level teaspoonful of the powder in a cup and stirring
until dissolved. Add sugar and cream to taste and you have a very fascinating beverage.
Grocers sell Instant Postum, 90 to 100-cup tins, 50c; 45 to 50-cup tins, 30c.

the art of writing is recent and that
m primitive times poems and literary
productions had to be memorized. But
more than 3.000 years before the Chris

town wrote receipts for garden and
