EASY TO GET FAT.
If Your Drink Is Rlj;iit.
Skinny people generally are so because
of their inability to digest the food which
Is passed from the stomach into the bowels.
The bowel digestion is weakened. Starches
or the grams make fat tissue, but if the
bowel digestion is weakened by coffee, to
bacco, whisky, etc , the person remains
skinny. Leave off the weakening habits,
and use in place of coffee, Postum Cereal,
the health corfee. It is made by the Pos
tum Cereal Co., lim.. Battle Creek, Mich.r
entirely or grains, and is fattening It looks
like tlie finest Mociia coffee. Persons who
care to lay aside their hurtful habits and
eat plain, well cooked food and some fruit,
and drink Postum, will feel a gieat im
provement in a week's time. Nature is a
powerful builder if left Tree to work with
out drugs and poisons.
It, should not be forgotten that 80 per
cent of the body is liquid, therefore a
healtliful liquid is of the greatest necessity.

New York, Dec. 18. Robert Stafford,
senior member of the firm of Stafford,
"Whittaker & Company, the most extensive
hotel proprietors in the United States,
died shortly before noon today at the Hotel
Netherlands or Blight's disease. He had
been suffering from the complaint for two
years past and during that time had been
practically an Invalid.
Mr. Stafrord was forty-nine years old
and was born in Huntington, Canada, but
at an early age moved to Uufralo, N. "S.
It was in that city that he began his career
as a hotel proprietor In 18SO, when he
assumed the management or the Mansion
House, in which hotel he retained an
interest up to the time or his death.
He built the Stafford House in Buffalo,
was proprietor of the Tift House, and later
constructed the Richmond Hotel, which
was soon afterward burned down, and on
its sight now stands the Iroquois Hotel.
After the destruction of the Richmond
Air. Stafford came to New York city and
formed a partnership with lir. Whittaker.
The rirm put up the big Imperial Hotel
on Broadway, which structure marked
the beginning of the modrn and hand
some hotels Tor which New York is now
After establishing the success of the
Imperial, Messrs. Stafford and Whittaker
took the management of the Hotel Nether
lands, Fifth avenue and Fifty-ninth streets,
which, after failure in other hands, was
made one of the leading hostelnes or New
About a year ago the firm extended its
interesf-to Philadelphia, where the new
Walton Hotel, which has proved a big
success, was opened. The firm con
templated new hotels for other cities, when
Mr. Stafford's illness compelled him to
cease active attention to business.

Avoid Hurrying and Confusion During the
Latter Days of the Month While Dr. McCoy's
Offices in Washington are Permanent, the $3
Opportunity Is Not It Positively Closes Janu
ary 1, and Will Under No Circumstances Be
The extension of tlie S3 rate beyond the
limit which Doctor McCoy first .set for
it, that is, November 1, was made neces
sary by the crowds or people who thronged
tlie ofrice during the concluding days or
October. It Doctors McCoy and Cowden
had been twenty doctors instead ot two
doctors they could not have begun to have
cared Tor all the people during the last
two or three daysof the month. Many were
turned away. It is not part of Doctor Mc
Coy's plan to hurry patients, to nave his
offices uncomfortably crowded or tocompel
patients to wait long hours berore seeing
their physician. "When lie made the ex
tension of the rate, therefore, he made
the time ample and generous two full
month- ror the very purpose of avoiding
any more such scenes as thoe that char
actenzed the concluding days of October.
Ample notice having been given that
the opportunity positively closes January
1, and that it will under no circumstances
or on no condition be extensled beyond that
date, Doctor McCoy desires to add em
phasis to the purpose of this extension, to
avoid the scenes of hurrying and confusion
which were so annoying to patients and
physicians alike. Dr. McCoy respectfully
asks, for Ids sake and for their sake, that
all tho?e who desire to avail themselves of
the opportunity of the $3 rate make their
application at onee, rather than wait until
the last few ilays of tbe month.
Doctor McCoy desires that no person be
denied this opportunity, ne has doneall
in his iKwer to make the limit of time
known, and those who come during the
last days or December and rind it is physi
cally impossible ror Doctor McCoy to see
them will have only themselves, to blame,
when, after January 1, they are obliged
to pay Doctor McCoy's regular Tee, for
while Doctor McCoy's orrice and Doctor
McCoy's practice are permanent in Wash
ington, the period during which advant
age can be taken or the $3 rate is not
permanent; it ends positively with the
end of the year.
All who pluce themselves under
treatment berore January 1st will
be trented until cured at the uni
form rate of 3 a mouth. This rate
covers all expense ot examination,
treatment aim medicines and in
cludes Deafness and all diseases.

I1AD BEEN DEAF MORE
THAN' E1ETEEN YEARS.
Mrs. M. A. Kir by. Camp Springs,
I'rlnce George's county, Md.: "I had been
dear ror more than 15 vears. I could not
hear the dinner bell or even the church
bell, l could not hear the preaching in
church. I was obliged to give up enter
tainments and very largely the company ot
rriends. Arter beginning treatment with
Doctors McCoy and Cowden the rirst im
provement 1 noticed in my hearing was
when 1 began to understand the conver
sation at the table. 1 can now hear the
closing or the door, the ring or the door
bell, the electric cars, the ticking ot the
clock. The loud sounds made by wagons
on the street, which formerly 1 could
scarcely hear at all, now cause me great
annovance. 1 can once more hear the
preaching In church, and I can once more
understand distinctly and take part in all
conversation My rrlends all notice and
speak or the wondcrrul improvement that
has been made In my hearing."

ucgraterul ir I did not add my testimony
to the vast number or those who have
stated in the public prints that Doctor
McCov cured them ot Dearness. When
1 went to Doctor McCoy I was totally deaf
in my tert ear. a rnend urged me to go
to him, and L placed myself under his
care. I tirst realized mv hearing was
coming back by making a test with a
watch. I continued the test with the
watch, holding it against my ear until I
round 1 could hear as well with the lert
ear, which was totally dear, as I could
with my right ear. The restoration ot
my uearing has been complete."
