A CHINESE FAILURE.
Pirst of tha Kind in History of Goth
am's Chinatown.
New York, March 22. The first busi
ness failure has occurred in New York's
Chtratown. 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.

der, and the sky w-as darkened by clouds
cf smoke. There wrere many thrilling
escapes, one woman and her son having
been caught by the flames under a
wagon on a bare road and, although the
wagon and contents were destroyed, they
were unhurt.
An engine attached to a passenger

MADE A TEST
To Prove the Effects of Coffee.
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. Auburn, ivi.
