Tha old grocery house of the WI:;.g Wj Hing company has filed r petition in bankruptcy, wift liabilities cf $7,463 and assets of $2,913. Many Chi r.esa merchants were "caught" for var ious small amounts in the financial wash of this old house, which had been doins business f or nearly 13 years. If the head of the firm, Lee Lur. Ling-, had not loved a beautiful Celes tial maiden in the distant Flowery pro vince of Rons Tong, the failure proba bly would never have taken place. At least, he thhiks so, and declares that while he was away wooing- and marry ing the grirl of his choice in China his partners injured the business. Lee Lung- Ling- came here from China nearly 17 years ago, ltavir.gr behind h:r:i 1 he beautiful Euey Sing-. He promised that he would return with a fortune in ten years and claim her hand. Just j5 vears from the day of his leave taking be returned to Kong Tong and ljis fian cee welcomed him with, open arms and they were soon married to the joy of thi.ii- parents and friends. Before going away Ling had taken into partnership with him his manager, Lee Tan Yibs and Young Lun cjue, his bookkeeper. They ran the business while be was gone. Just before the Chinese Ne.v iear Ling landed in New York a"d feund that his firm owed everyone from whom they could get credit, Most of the creditors were small Chinese merchants, but a few cf them were Americans. They were clamoring for their money. Ling was forced to tell the creditors that the firm would have to go into bankruptcy and be sold out for their benefit. MANY LIVES LOST.

In order to be sure that it really was coffee that had caused the trouble to my husband and myself, we made a careful test with the following results: We had been using coffee, more or less, for twenty ears, lifld for many years hus band was troubled with headaches, slug gish circulation, and dizzy spells. I had sick headaches, stomach trouble and felt nervous and despondent most of the time. Two years ago we began using Postum Food Coffee in place of our coffee. Husband soon began to improve, and looked and appeared like another person. All the old disagreeable symp toms disappeared. In order to be sure that it was the coffee that had caused the trouble he began drinking coffee again, and the old dizzy spells, slug gishness, and headaches began to come back. That settled it. and he immedi ately dropped cc-ftee for good and all, and has since been using Postum and is perfectly healthy. I have stuck to Postum, and am today a healthy, fleshy, rosy woman. wKere before I was thin, pale and sallow. You may believe we know something about whether coffee agrees with us or not. and we also knew how well Postum does agree with us. Mia. Madison, 12S- South Division street, here in Auburn, N. Y., has been cured cf indigestion and nervousness by leaving off coffee and taking up Postum Food Coffee. Mrs. Caffrey. 1477 South Salina street, has been greatly benefited by using Pos tum after leaving off coffee. I know of many cases but only speak of a few." Mrs. S. E. Webb, 16Vs Parker street.
