"About seven years ago I ceased drinking coffee to give your Postum a trial. "I had suffered acutely from various forms of indigestion and my stomach had become so disordered as to repel almost every sort of substantial food. My general health was bad. At close intervals I would suffer severe attacks which confined me in bed for a week or more. Soon after changing from coffee to Postum the indigestion abat ed, and in a short time ceased entire ly. I have continued the daily use of your excellent Food Drink and assure you most cordially that I am indebt ed to you for the relief it has brought me. "Wishing you a continued success, I am Yours very truly, J. Stanley Browne, Managing Editor." Of course, when a man's health shows he can stand coffee without trouble, let him drink it, but most highly organized brain-workers sim ply cannot. The drugs natural to the coffee ber ry affect the stomach and other or gans and thence to the complex nerv ous system, throwing it out of balance and producing disorders in various parts of the body. Keep up this daily poisoning and serious disease gener ally supervenes. So when man or wo man finds that coffee is a smooth but deadly enemy and health is of any val ue at all, tbere is but one road—quit. It is easy to find out if coffee be the cause of the troubles, for if left off 10 days and Postum be used in its place and the sick and diseased condi tions begin to disappear, the proof is unanswerable. Postum is not good if made bv short boiling. It must be boiled full 15 minutes after boiling begins, when Fee crisp flavor and the food elements are brought out of the grains and the beverage is ready to fulfill its mis sion of palatable comfort and renew ing the cells and nerve centres broken down by coffee.

Residents of Lowlands Between Wash burn and Hensler are Moving to Higher Ground. The ice in the Missouri river at Wolf Point, Montana, broke up yes terday. A gorge of ice formed near the 4wn of Hensler, about ten miles below Washburn, and caused a decid ed rise of water at Washburn and all points above. The lowlands in the vi cinity of Hensler and above are cov ered with water, and residents are moving to higher ground. The ice in the river at Bismarck, both above and below the bridge, continued to break up during the night, and 1B now open for a considerable distance up and down the river from the bridge. The ice, however, at Sibley's Island re mains firm, and should the ice and wa ter from above come down in large quantities at once, a second flood at Bismarck could very easily occur. Residents of the bottoms are urged to keep in close touch with the local weather bureau. The distance of the gorge from Bismarck by river is about sixty miles. This would require about from.12 to 15 hours for the water to reach Bismarck after the gorge gave way. Later. Word just reached Bismarck as we go to press that a second gorge form ed in what is known as Mandan Lake Bend in the Missouri river about fif teen miles above Washburn. This caused an overflow of the bottoms about Fort Clark, and a fall of the stage of water at Washburn of one foot. The river at Bismarck has been falling all day, the change since 6 a. m. being about one foot. IN l.

COWAN TRIAL HOLDING CENTER OF THE STAGE Devils Lake, N. D., March 24— No section of the state has been under such a tense strain as is Devils Lake and the Second judicial district over the outcome of the Judge John Cowan impeachment prosecution. The fact that the factions are -so evenly di vided and that this is the home of Cowan is the cause of the bitter feel ing. Next Tuesday, when the trial before the state senate opens, the second dis trict will be well represented at the state capital. The exodus of attorneys, witnesses and others interested will commence Sunday evening and there will be a constant procession of inter ested persons between this city and Bismarck. Judge Cowan is gathering evidence for his defense, as are his attorneys, Tracy Bangs of Grand Forks, and P. J. McClory of this city. The latter is his former law partner and is may or of Devils Lake. The principal work being done by Judge Cowan is to gain information on the cases in court in which it is contended he failed to give decisions promptly. So many of the cases ex tend back many years, that it is diffi cult to get at the facts in the cases. Court records will form a large part of the evidence. For the prosecution, E. R. Sinkler of Minot, formerly of Grafton, has been engaged to assist George A. Bangs. Three years ago Mr. Sinkler was a candidate for congress, running inde pendently for the republican nomina tion. It is expected the first day of the trial will be taken up by the senate in laying down the mode of procedure. This will make it impossible to intro duce evidence until about Wednesday. m**-m*me+m*—mm+ 9018 The "Minot Pythian Home Associa tion," has already been incorporated, and the following board of directors has been named: C.
