He’s irritable and nervous; perhaps his irritation and sleeplessness may be due to tea or coffee. Apain, almost everybody knows that tea and coffee are especially harmful to the little folks.

Everyone can drink all they desire without the slightest chance of harm. Instant Tostum. a real American discovery, is made of prime wheat and a bit of wholesome molasses, blended and roasted just like cofTee. Its flavor, purity and wonderful goodness have won tremendous favor everywhere. “There’s a Reason” Grocers everywhere sell Postum * Factories Frmum (>r«al Cos., Ltd. Buttle Creek.
