Complimentary Notice by a Kansas City Paper. The Kansas City Journal ha? this to say (if the Melan arch bridge, which according to John A. Dailey of this city, is a horrible crime against society: "Kansas has an object lesson in bridge building in the big- Melan struc ture at Topeka. made of Portland ce ment and pounded rock, which stood like the everlasting hills against the tierce assaults of the flood. Other bridges piled against it. logs and railroad wreckage smashed into its piers and arose high in s the air. and the swirling waters did their best to eat out its foundations, but it was not injurt in the least, except that a dirt approach at one end was washed away. The secret of this Melan bridge is its enormous dead weiedit and i deeply laid foundations. Its graceful : arches involve neither difficult architec- ture nor great expense. To be sure, it ; is rather more costly than the spider ! web steel structures so common m i ' Kansas, but it stands the Hoods and is therefore the most economical type in the loot? run. Where other towns and I cities have great problems on hand in 1 the form of needed new bridges. Topeka j i had only to build a new approach on 1 one side, which was done at very little i Cost."

An old soldier's wife described her coffee experience as follows; "My hus band and I have been accustomed to the use of tea and coffee for a very great many years and we were very fond of the coffee. "Some time ago we received front a dear friend in St. Louis a Christmas box that included a package of Postum. I prepared some without reading direc tions and my husband said: 'O non sense this tastes just like the crust wa ter that was one of the luxuries they allowed to invalids SO years ago.' Then I looked up the directions, made the Postum as it should be made and we both found it delicious. "My husband is a broken-down soldier and was a dyspeptic and suffer ed from severe headaches but from the time we commenced to drink Postum we have not taken a cup of tea or cof fee. During the hot weather we have eaten no meat, depending for food upon Grape-Nuts. My dear husband's head aches have disappeared since we left off the coffee and began Postum, and I find myself mentally stronger and much brtt"r able to concentrate my thoughts than for several years past. Husband has a good appetite now and nothing disturbs his stomach. "1 believe that when mothers come to pay more attention to their children's diet there will be more health and hap piness in the world and in domestic life gi nerally. Little by little this change must come. "Yours very sincerely for all that pertains to health and happiness. I'se ,,ur names if you wish." Names fur nished by Postum Co., Battle Creek, Mich. Tbis letter is in the hand-writing of toe OKI lany ners' it and ir.e-.-e are many people half her years who cannot write ; half so good a Utter. The case is one of remarkable vitality and apparently j the only ills of their old age w.-fc those j due the coffee drinking. These disap peared when Postum was used in place I of coffee.
