How many persons dread to eat
their meals, although nctually hungry
nearly all the time!
Nature never Intended this should
be so, for we are given a thing called
appetite that should guide us as to
what the Bystcm needs at any time
and can digest.
But we get lu a hurry, swallow our
food very much as we shovel coal Into
tho furnace, and our sense of appetite
becomes unnatural and perverted.
Then wo eat the wrong kind ot food
or eat too much, and thero you are
indigestion and its accompanying mis
eries. A Phlln. lady said:
"My husband and I havo been Blck
and nervous for 15 or 20 years from
drinking coffee feverish, Indigestion,

dreaded to eat our meals. (Tea is
Just as Injurious, because It contains
caffeine, the same drug found In cof

cines that counted up Into hundreds
of dollars, with little If any benefit.
"Accidentally, u small package of
Postum came Into my hands. I made
somo according to directions, with
surprising results. Wo both liked it
and havo not used any coffoe since.
"The dull feeling after meals has
left us nnd wo feel better every way.
