The Old Carriage Maker Had an Important Truth JL O make each part as strong as the rest," was his way of "building a wonderful, one-horse chaise that wouldn't wear out till judgment day." This illustrates a fact that is keeping many doctors busy these days -human bodies, like chaises, break down because some part isn't as strong as the others. Very often it's because of ill-balanced food,.Iacking in some impor tant element of nutrition. This is especially true of ills developed in childhood, and carried on through life. Grape-Nuts, that world-famous, ready-to-eat cereal, brings the plan cf building each part as strong as the rest to serve human need. Grape Nuts contains all the nutriment of those best of the field grains, wheat and barley, including the vital mineral elements, and it is a wonderful food for building and sustaining health and strength. The delicious flavor and crispness of Grane-Nuts make it a wel come dish whenever you're hungry. rapeauts THE BODY BUILDER . "There's a Reason" Made by Postum Cereal Co., lc, Battle Creek, Mich..
