X Save Jhe bird in hand The others may be hard to catch With enough money, enough time and enough luck, a man may get back the health he has lost or part of it. It takes patience, too. And then there may be no success, or only a little. It's better to save what you have than hunt for what you've lost as the most successful health-restorers will tell you. Much of the loss of health is due to faulty, careless diet. Wrong meals at all times and right meals at wrong times load the long-suffering digestive organs with elements of destruction, or starve the tissues and glands of needed elements. - . r - Grape-Nuts is a delicious cereal food which has the qualities of scientific nutrition. It supplies the full richness of those splendid food grains, wheat and malted barley, together with the vital mineral elements, so often lacking from foods.
