The saying of our forefathers, "When the days begin to lengthen the cold begins tu strengthen." seems proving true this , winter.

Shortstop Purkett, recently signed by the Birmingham club of the Southern league, is a son of Jesse Ihirkett. the old b' league star and present coach of the champion Giants. There's a settlement in profit or loss, for nearly every indulgence. Sometimes thr; pay-day n long deferred, and in that case the settlement may bear compound interest. Often a payment in ill health is required for the dancs had with tea or coffee during earlier years. Sometimes the collection comes in sleeplessness, sometimes in headaches, sometimes in high blocd pressure, or in nervous indigestion sometimes in all these penalties. Nerves won't always stand the whipping of tea and coffee's drug, caffeine. If you've been dancing to tea or coffee's fiddling, why keep on till payment time comes? If you're beginning to pay, now, why not cancel the contract ? There's an easy and pleasant way to avoid tea and coffee's penalties, as thousands have found who have changed to Postum. It is a delight with any meal rich, comforting and satisfying and it never harms. Even th2 little children can have a breakfast cup of Postum, with no feer fcr what may happen to sensitive nerves. Instead cf paying penalties for your meal-time drink, lot it pay benefits to you, by giving natural health a full chance and begin the new arrangement today. Any grocer will sell you, or any good restaurant will servo you Postum. Postum comes in two forms: Instant Postum (in tins) made instantly in the cup by the addition of boiling water. Postum Cereal (in packages of larger bulk, for tho3s who prefer to make the drink while the meal Is being prepared) made by fcoillnj for 20 minutes. WESTMINSTER. !
