In cases of nervousness, heart flutter, head ache, biliousness, indigestion, etc., where the patient is a coffee drinker, most doctors order: '"Quit coffee and use Postum." Doctors recommend Postum because thev know that it is a pure food-drink absolutely free from the drug, caffeine, which makes coffee injuri ous to most users. It is significant that thousands of physicians not only recommend, but themselves use its worth having been fully demonstrated, not only in the home, but in Sanitari ums, Hospitals and Colleges.

CHRISTINE FREDERICK. Author of "The New HouekeepInc" a UT of her most bountiful har vest September fills her flow ing basket with grapes of all colors, black, red and white. No other fruit, save possibly the apple, ranks so high In health value, and the grape cures of Europe have been famous for centuries. ' Beside their most refreshing fla vor, grapes yield from 10 to 30 per cent of sugar, and, most important, the magnesia, iron and tartaric acid from which the commercial cream of tartar is obtained. It is because, of these natural salts and mineral substances that the grape Is such a blood purifier. Then, when we con sider the high contents of sugar, we see that it offers a most unusual fruit. Authorities saj- that grapes are particularly helpful In cases of kldpej-, liver or intestinal trouble, and, indeed, ono could go on at length and ascribe to It all the vir tues of the most advertised patent medicine- It Is a tonic as well as a purifier, and nil peoples have been aware of the stlmu ulat'ug effect of the grape, it should, there fore, form a perhaps dallv' adjunct to our table in Its sea son. The su gar will be found fattening and energy-producing, the Juice and flavor are refreshing, tffe salts purifying what more could be asked. The most economical way Is to buy a large basKet. and not the smaller boxes freauentlj' seen wrap ped with ornate laco paper. We pay for the paper and the wrapping, but we get less grapes. Estimated on their food value alone, grapes are economical, and a hearty dish of grapes with brown bread or a cheese sandwich is a quite satisfying meal. Indeed, at some of the European "cures." patients are put entirely on grapes, of which they eat Immense quantities. Wo are apt sometimes to think of them more as a luxury, or an addi tion to an already heavy meal. The better way Is to think of them as a sugar food, which can have a dis tinct place 'on cut fall table. All less perfect and "dropped" grapes can casilj- be made into a marmalade or Jam. and grape juice Is r.ot the difficult work that many would have us believe, to manufac ture at home. The two essential points are the steaming, and not boiling of the grapes, and very per fect straining of the Juice, even unto the third and fourth time, before It Is bottled In order to avoid sediment and a product of an unpleasant color A grape butter is not to be despised. If grapes are cheap. All grapes take kindly to spicing and seasoning, and there are verj' many cllutnevs. catsups and Jams which will enable the family to eat the fruit of the vine, even in late winter. Here Is the recipe for the famous French grape butter. Equal weight of grapes and pear3. Simmer grapes alone in a little water after washing and stemming them.

XL A, M. o N July S my friend. Surgeon amazed to learn that the dread scourge. Oriental plague, had been found In New Orleans. It Is almost two years since an Instance of this acutelv malignant malady was found In the United States. On August 8 Suregon General Rucker made the terrify ing announcement that with his perfectly modern ma chinery of sanitation and the full co-operation of the Louisiana health department In the slaughter of rats, 'ophers. squirrels, fleas and other creatures which harbor he black death baccili, thirteen human instances of 'lague had been found and twelve rata were caught In ectcd with it. Orders have been sent to every Atlantic. Pacific, and gulf port, from Seattle to New Orleans, to be on the lookout for all sorts of animals related to rats and squir rels, toIestroy and examine them and their fleas for the plague bacteria, to fumigate every wharf, dock and inbound vessel. As fast as cargoes are disembarked all rats will be destroyed and vessels will be prevented from docking, especially at New Orleans. Even passen gers must be certified by quarantine officers. Origin of Name. Congress has appropriated $500. GOO, but will be called upon" by the public health department to increase this In order to eradicate this fatal distemper of man and rodents. Underground fc'iuirrels. rats, gophers, and field mice will carry the disease ven Into outlying rural neighborhoods. Black death, bubonic plague, the lutra ebony bridge across the Styx, the orien tal scourge, are names that have been applied to this Asiatic pest. It is a havoc - making, contagious aliment caused by a tiny microbe called bacillus of pest or bacillus pestls. Thousands of millions of mankind are In their graves dun to its ravages, yet the germ has only been known since the French pupil of Pusteur, Yersin, and the great Japa nese bacteriologist. Kitasato. discovered It only a little over a score of jears ago. Epidemic always In the dirty, senti mental, antl-vivlsectionistlc far East, bubonic plague is always ready to cash at the Occident and sweep humanity off the earth. The odd name buoonic Is given it because in the neck, in the groin, under the arms and elsewhere there appear swollen glands, huge shot like blind boils called "buboes." The Anti.Tozin Serum. If a flea with a plague bacillus hops on you, bites jou and thus gives you this death-dealing contagion, in three to five or seven days afterward, chills, fever, headache, nausea, and vomiting make you stagger or throw you into bed. Two periods of fever occur within a few days. Death occurs quickly or the fever falls and you live, as Boccacio did, to tell of It.

Injected Into men exposed to plague it has saved many lives. Haffklne's plague vaccine Is much the same as the antl-tj-pho5 vaccine, which cverj- sane person now takes to prevent typhoid fever. The only difference is thei use of Inert, dead plague germs in lieu of typhoid bacilli.

It then killed 10.000 per sons lr Constantinople, or one person In everv ten. It slaughtered even more In Home in 590, and in the fourteenth century it drove Boccaecio and other nobles out of Florence into a locked villa while it devastated all Europe.
