some are Baying that Senator Hud
son would not be eligible for governor
if elected, for the reason that, as a
member of the legislature, he voted
for n increase in the salary of gov
ernor, the oifice, which he himself
seeks to fill. Mr. Hudson was asked
if he had anything to say In answer
to this talk, and in reply made the
"My alleged disqualification Is
founded solely on the fact that Uie
legislature of 1918, of which I was a
member, enacted a law Increasing the
salary of the governor.
The Constitution (Article IH, Sec
tion '5) provides that:
"No senator or member of the
house of representatives shall, during
the time for which he was elected, be
appointed or elected to any civil of
fice under the constitution of this
state that has been created, or the
emoluments whereof have been in
creased, during such time.
"My last term in the senate began
on the day of the general election in
1912. That the salary of the gov
ernor was increased by the legisla
ture during that term is admitted. So
were the salaries of the comptroller
and other cabinet officers and the rail

Will the next governor be elected dur

nothing in the contention that I am
?The next governor will be elected
on the first Tuesday after the first
Monday in November, 1916, and on
that same day my term as senator
will expire. Taking together Section
2 (as amended in 1898) and Section-1
of Article VII of the Constitution, it
appears that the term of a senator
elected in 1912 will expire 4at the
election for senators and members of
fh Tioiim of representatives' on the
first Tuesday after the first Monday
in November, 1916."

As regards habits of Hving, that, of course, is
purely a1 personal matter with each of us.
But some folks go on for years "wondering what
causes their nervousness, heart flutter, biliousness,
headache and various other ailments.
A frequent, though often unsuspected cause, is
- coffee drinking. This; because coffee contains a pow
erful, habit-forming drug, f caffeine, (about two and
one half grains to the average cup) which, taken reg
ularly, finally drifts many into ill health.
Think it over.
Of course, its your own affair. If you can go on
drinking coffee and feel no evil effects, why bless
your heart, keep it up- but there are hundreds of
thousands who have quit coffee and now use
the pure food drink
They know from the better health that follows,
that freedom from the drug, caffeine, in coffee makes
life brighter and happier.
Postum is made of wheat and a bit of molasses
has a rich, snappy flavour much like that of mild Java
coffee, yet contains no caffeine or other harmful ele
ment. ' . '
Postum comes in two forms. The original
Postum Cereal requires boiling; Instant Postum is
soluble. A level teaspoonful in a cup of boiling water
makes a delicious drink instantly. Cost per cup is
about the same for both kinds. .
Personally the change to Postum is a little
. thing to do. The benefit is great.
Sold by Grocers everywhere.
