A BANKER'S NERVE Broken by Coffee and Restored by Postum. A banker needs perfect control of the nearves and a clear, quick, accurate brain. A prominent banker of Chat tanooga tells how he keeps himself in condition: "Up to 17 years of age I was not al lowed to drink coffee, but as soon as ! got out Into the world, I began to us. it and grew very fond of it. For some years I noticed no bad effects from its use, but in time it began to affect me unfavorably. My hands trembled, the . muscles of my face twitched, my men tal processes seemed slow and in other ways my system got out of order These conditions grew so bad at last that I had to give up coffee altogether. "Mv attention having been drawn to Postum, I began its use on leaving off the coffee, and it gives me pleasure to testify to Its value. I find it a deli cious beverage; like it just as well as I did coffee, and during the years that I have used Postum I have been free from the distressing symptoms that ac companled the use of coffee. The nervousness has entirely disappeared. and I am as steady of hand as a boy of 25, although I am more than 92 years old. I Q. owe all this ; to Postum." "There's a Reason.

This is what he's brought hoam two or three nites back: 'If fore gallons of bere will fill thirty-two pint bottles, how many pints and half bottles will nine gallins bere fill? Well, we tried and could make nothin' of it at all, and my boy cried and laff ed and said he didn't dare go back in the mornin' without doin' it. So I had to go and buy a nine-gallon keg of bere, which I could ill afford to do, and then he went and borrow ed a lot of wine and brandy bottles. We filled them, and my boy put tb? answer down. I don't know wheth er it Is right or not, as we spilt some while doing it. "P. S. Please let the next som be in water, as I am not able to buy more bere."

Councilman Williams declar ed that the franchise says the company must have the latest equipped cars and he wants the matter investigated. The matter was referred to the Board of Health. It is further declared that the cars are not properly heated In winter. The complaint over the condition of the street cars is almost as old as the cars themselves it is said and an effort to improve the conditions as they now exist will be earnestly attempted and the campaign for better service will bo strenuously waged.
