A little affair occured in New England
that went down in history as

"There's a Reason"
, An English King had told his subject colonists that if they drank
tea they must pay a tax on it--an unjust tax that made revenue, not
for Americans but for Englishmen.
v It was a tax that increased the high cost of living of those days and'"
our forefathers went to the wharf where the tea ships were moored, split
open the tea chests and spilled their contents into Boston Harbor, thus pro
ducing the largest and most expensive bowl of tea the world has ever seen.
Is repeated practically the same thing.
The Brazilian Coffee Trust, operated by foreign money kings,
working outside the control of our National Anti-trust laws, have im
posed a tax upon American Citizens which has raised the price of
even the cheapest grade of coffee from 15c to 25c per lb.
During three past years this trust has taken Hundreds of
lions of Dollars from the pockets of American Citizens.
It has given Brazil 85 Millions of Dollars with which to retire-her
National Bonds !
It has given Brazil 1 0 Millions of Dollars to pay interest on her
., It. has given Brazil a "bought and paid for" supply of coffee on
- ' hand worth 90 Millions of Dollars and
It has paid millions upon millions of profit into the coffers of the
Foreign Money Kings, and yet the coffee people report a falling off in
sales of about 200 million pounds in the past two years.
this Heavy Reduction?
J Until recently the ever increasing army of Postum users, thought
only of health as a "reason11 for quitting coffee. Now Economy is another
"reason." A third "reason," Improved Flavor, has come in with
prepared instantly hy placing a spoonful in a cup and pouring hot water' over it.
This presents a delicious beverage much resembling high grade Java in color and taste, but absolutely pure
and free from the coffee drug "caffeine' or any other harmful ingredient.
Health, convenience, flavor and economy have induced people to change from coffee to Postum, then fol
lows better health, freedom from headache, indigestion, nervousness and other coffee ills.
In hundreds of thousands of American homes today, coffee is forgotten and Postum has become the reg
ular table beverage. It is an American drink made by Americans from American products.
A 100-cup tin Instant Postum, 50c, (equals l-2c per cup), at Grocers. (Smaller tins at 30c.) Regular Pos
tum, large package, (must be boiled 15 minutes), 25c.
re s a reason
Coffee averages about double that cost
