NEWS OF THE CITY TELLS Of PROGRESS IN NEW ZEALAND Archbishop Redwood Delivers an Interesting Discourse at Cathedral Material and spiritual conditions in that modern promised land, New Zea land, were described yesterday morn ing by the Most Rev. F. M. Red wood, archbishop of Wellington, in a sermon delivered at the St. Paul ca thedral. "Today," said the archbishop, "is the seventh Sunday after Pentecost. In view of the subject I am about to dis cuss, I may appropriately remind you of St. Paul's epistle to the Romans, vi., 19-23. I speak of human things,' etc. "I have been requested to address you by your archbishop, and 1 am most happy to respond to the desires of that illustrious prelate. Yet I am not a to tal stranger among you. Over twenty five years ago. on my first visit to St. Paul, I delivered a sermon in this very cathedral. Nine or ten years hence I hope to have the privilege of speak ing to you in your new cathedral. I have no doubt that, responding to the wishes of your archbishop, you will erect a building of suit able dignity upon the admirable site he has selected—a cathedral that, like your glorious capitol, will dominate the entire city, typifying the fact that religion no less than the state must govern a well-ordered commonwealth. Tells of New Zealand "I am going to speak to you about New Zealand. I am the archbishop of Wellington, the capital of New Zea land. Not a few persons imagine that I come from Australia; but New Zea land is 1,200 miles away, across the sea, from Australia. We have three islands —two large and one small —all in the temperate zone. The latitude of Wel lington corresponds almost exactly to that of Chicago, but the climate is very different. Because of our location, sur rounded on all sides by the sea, our climate is much milder than that of Chicago and much less variable. Very rarely does the mercury fall to the freezing point in our country, although there are some three months that cor respond to winter, when the trees im ported from other countries lose their leaves. The inatgenous trees are all evergreen, with one exception — the fuchsia tree. You know the fuchsia plant that you cultivate for its flowers. With us that plant grows to be a gen uine tree, and it loses its leaves in the winter time. It is then that the south winds blow; for, inasmuch as we are on the other side of the equator, our cold winds come from the south and our. warm winds -from the north. "Our summers are not as hot as one would imagine who knoVs the mildness of our winters. The thermometer very seldom indicates so great a heat as 90 degrees. Thus we can produce every thing that ca*n be cultivated in any temperate climate. Country Is 1,100 Miles Long "The length of New Zealand, from Tiortheast to southwest, is 1,100 miles. The coast line is very extensive, meas uring no less than 4,000 miles, and our coasts provide many excellent harbors. "We have four large cities—Welling ton, Auckland. Chrlstchurch and Dune din. They are of about the same size, each having 65,000 to 70,000 inhabi tants. The capital is Wellington. "Ours is pre-eminently a grazing and mining country. We raise an Immense number of sheep and ship to Europe great cargoes of mutton. Some of the steamships that call at one of our ports after another, accumulating mutton, carry across the sea the carcasses of 100,000 sheep in a single cargo. "Another source of our wealth is the celebrated New Zealand hemp or flax. It is really not a flax at all, but a lily. It grows wild and requires no cultiva tion. It is exported in large quanti ties to be used as twine for harvesting machines. No other fiber can stand the strain so well, and our flax is relied on by harvesters the world over. "To give you an idea of our wealth, I may say that, with a population of 800,000 or 900,000 whites and about 41,000 Maoris or natives, our exports last year were valued at $70,000,000. "We enjoy as great a degree of lib erty and of civil order as any country in the world; and I can without exaggeration, that in no country, not even in your great nation, are the peo ple so well fed, so well housed and so materially happy. Not a Single Millionaire "Yet we have no millionaires in New Zealand—not one. The wealth is well diffused. Thus we have avoided many inconveniences that have distressed older countries. There is no centraliza tion of wealth; no sharp drawing of social lines. "Having a small, new country, with favorable conditions for establishing things on a fresh basis, we have en deavored 10 solve a number of social questions; and so far as we can judge from the results in a country of that size the solutions have been satisfac tory. The state, for example, interests itself >n many things ihat would else where be declared beyond its province. Not only the postoffice, but the rail ways and the telegraphs, are under government control. The state has also interfered to prevent what might be come the abuse of poverty by wealth, of labor by capital. During' the last lifteen years, for instance, we have had no strikes—ever since our boards of conciliation and arbitration were es tablished. "But no one need fear that New Zea land is becoming socialistic. There is no intention to interfere with private property. On the contrary, we try to encourage by every means the growth and prosperity of the small capitalist believing that his class forms the best backbone for any community. Natives Taught Heresy '•And now, coming to the spiritual conditions in our country, I must re mind you that for a long time New Zealand was nobody's land. It was not until IS4O that it became a British colony, though missionaries went there as early as IS 14. They did some good among the natives, but, unfortunately, they taught the natives heresy, in structed them in the wrong sort of Christianity. Soon after the Marist Fathers began teaching the natives, in 183S, wars broke out between the na tive tribes and the whites. Large num bers of the Maoris perished. Hating Christianity as the religion of their en emies, many of the natives relapsed Into paganism. 'During some years, however, the cause of religion slowly gained. There are now left, rs I said, about 41,000 Maoris. Of these 10,000 are Catholics. I have 2,000 in my province, and in the province of Auckland there are 8,000. Auckland is in the North, where the natives are more numerous—they love warm weather. "Of the whites, about one-seventh, are Catholics; most-of them Irish, with a sprinkling of Germans. Altogether there are 105,000 Catholics in New Zea land. They have four dioceses, four bishops and an archbishop.^. "Although there is a secular system of schools maintained by the state, the Catholics conduct excellent schools without state aid. And I am happy to say that in the cities of New Zealand you can count on your fingers the Catholic children that attentl the state schools. State Inspects Catholic Schools "But we have' obtained one thing from the government, ..and it may be, . as I hope, the keen edge of the wedge. The state has undertaken to inspect our schools officially. We find such in spection a benefit; it stimulates our teachers and keeps up the standard of our schools. The government inspect ors respect our schools and even sym pathize with the ability and self-sacri fice of-our teachers. -These are all re ligious—the brothers or sisters of vari ous orders. Sonic of our schools have received the highest marks — higher than those of any government school. "By thus providing schools and teachers at our own expense, we save ttfe government about" £60,000 —$300,- --000—every year. We hope that we shall ultimately get back a part of this; one half of it would satisfy us. With gov ernment aid to the extent of one-half our expenses, our schools would in crease and prosper wonderfully. We think it manifestly unjust to fine us £60,000 a year because we teach one subject more than the state teaches, and that the most important subject of all —I mean religion. "Public sentiment is turning in our favor upon this point. A wave of dis content at the attitude of the govern ment is slowly spreading. People are contrasting the qualities of the state school pupils with the superior refine ment, the greater moral culture, of our pupils. / "We shall never divorce religion from secular education and we are gaining the sympathy and admiration of our educational rivals. "Our Catholic population, as a whole, is 'practical.' Only among the younger generation do we notice any indiffer ence to their religious obligations. Most of our people attend church with rea sonable regularity, and very, very few fail to observe their Easter duties. Our church is flourishing:. It is growing faster thani i( are the. other churches about us. "All-this, I am sure, will please you, because there is nothing that so grati fies a true Catholic as the welfare of his holy faith. So I trust that you will kindly say a prayer for the church of New Zealand. In this hope, I pray, that all blessings may come to you and your beautiful city." CHARTER COMMISSION FACES DULL SUMMER Commissioner Ives Does Not Expect Body to Accomplish Anything "It is doubtful if the charter com mission will' accomplish anything dur ing the summer months," said E. C Ives, a member of the body, "and it is also likely that if such is the case it will be impossible to submit any amendments at the fall election. '"The lack of. interest is due to the holding that all amendments made shall be submitted separately. As it has been agreed that a general revision of the charter is necessary it would be useless to submit a long list of amendments The voters would not stop to vote on all of them, and as every voter failing to vote would de clare against the changes there would be little hope of securing the neces sary three-fifths of the total." On the dates of several recent meet ings of. the commission a quorum of the members has failed to respond, with the result that those who wish to proceed with the work have become discouraged. The probability, there fore, is that an effort will be made to secure authority from the legislature during the coming winter to submit all the amendments in one proposition. CITIZENS PARTICIPATE IN SHORT MAN HUNT Herman Schliek Is Chased by Crowd for Disorderly Conduct Herman Schliek, who figured in a sensational fight with two policemen and who made a daring attempt to es cape from the conductor of the patrol wagon while being taken to the police station six months ago, was the central figure in an equally sensational man hunt last evening. Schliek behaved in a disorderly man ner in the presence of two young girls at Sixth and Broadway streets, and ■when their enraged parents attempted to catch him he ran away towards the railroad yards. Patrolman Galvin was called, and several neighbors and spec tators joined In the chase. Schliek. who is a good runner, easily distanced his pursuers, but they kept* after him. He took refuge among freight cars and was found after a long search cowering under a car. He was turned over to Patrolman Galvin and sent to the central police station. Schliek was sentenced to ninety days in the work house last winter. CAPT. JOHN CLARK IS GETTING PAPERS Big Police Officer Has Alexandria Postmaster Working Overtime If Capt. John Clark, of the police department, is perusing all the reading matter sent him during his stay of ten days in Alexandria, Minn., he will be a proficient linguist upon his return. Not a day passes but that several bundles of papers addressed to Clark leave the central..station, and in every instance there is included publications in foreign languages. He has been sent Chinese, Japanese. French, Ger man and Gaelic publications, together with small weekly papers from various sections of the Northwest All of which is due to his leaving, word when he left to send him "the papers." - COURT HOUSE SIDEWALK IS CRYING FOR REPAIRS Custodian Admits Condition, but Has No Power to Act "If the city hall and court house side walk were maintained by a private property owner he would .be compelled to make extensive repairs," said J. W. Cramsie, the custodian of the city and county building. "The sinking of some portions of the walk has resulted in the accumulation of water puddles jsome two inches deep in places. I have realized that this should be remedied, but have no power to act until instructed to proceedO^y the joint committee. The work should be done at once, as the condition orvthe walk has attracted much unfavorable comment." THE ST. PAUL-GLOBE. MON©AV, JULY 11. 1904 CORNER STONE FOR BARRACKS IS LAID Salvation Army's New Home In First Ward Is Formally Dedicated Shrill tones of Salvation Army lasses mingled with the deep bass of the sol diers of "the Army" in general thanks giving yesterday afternoon at the lay ing of the corner stone for tire new Salvation Army barracks on Payne avenue. It was a notable gathering of the re ligious people of the First - ward, brought together to witness the cul mination of long years of arduous ef fort of the Swedish corps of the Army stationed on Payne avenue. A hand some new building has been practically completed and the corner stone was laid yesterday afternoon by Robert A. Smith, mayor of St. Paul. Incidentally, Mayor Smith paid a handsome tribute to the good work being done by the Salvation Army in St. Paul in and made special reference to the suc cess that has crowned the sixteen years' work of the Swedish corps in the First ward. The corner stone was laid in the presence of fully a thousand people, and fully as many more were at the building during the afternoon, but, un able to gain entrance, went away. The new barracks, located at 1011 Payne avenue, occupies a building con structed along lines resembling a cita del. The front elevation is two stories, with four rooms for the officers on the second floor. The main auditorium of the building, which in general dimen sions is 90 by 36 feet, has a seating ca pacity of 400, and is supplied with an arched nineteen-foot ceiling. It is heated by furnace, and has splendid acoustic properties. At the rear is a small room to be used as a kitchen. Completed, the barracks will cost ap proximately $6,000, and it Is expected to complete it with a debt of less than half its cost against it. The collection taken yesterday was more than $100, Mayor Smith's! check being the largest individual gift received. Corner Stone Laid by Mayor The ceremony of laying the corner stone was performed by Mayor Smith shortly after 5 o'clock in the presence of a great crowd, and was exceedingly simple. The mayor was assisted by the officers of the Army and -the con tractors, Louis Johnson and C. A. Bloom. An inspiring meeting was held in the new barracks preceding the corner stone laying ceremonies. Brig. J. Jen kins, of Minneapolis, provincial officer for the province of the Northwest, ac companied by his staff, was present, and, as the head of the Array in Min nesota, was in charge of the meeting. Music>was provided by the band of Corps No. 2, St. Paul, and the band of Corps No. 1, Minneapolis, and by the string band of the Swedish corps in charge of the Payne avenue work. Staff Capt. Chris. ChristopheTsen,-"of the Scandinavian Army corps, was master of ceremonies. Mayor Smith spoke of the Salvation Army work in St. Paul. "You remember, and I remember," the mayor said, "when the Salvation Army first began its work irf/SSfc "Paul. It certainly had a hard time/and was subject to persecutions until your members appealed to me for "effective police protection. I gave you protec tion, but today you need no such thing as protection. Your conduct and your work have been such that the people of St. -Paul, irrespective of creed or denomination, give you protection, for they know what a noble work you are doing in uplifting fallen humanity and making the dark spots in life more pleasant." Work of the Army Brig. Jenkins spoke at some length on the general work of the Salvation Army throughout the world, and said that the Army now owns property val ued at $2,000,000 in the United States. He spoke of the great international congress now in session in London, and declared that throughout the world the Army had gained not only the re spect of many who in its earlier days had opposed it, but had in many in stances secured the co-operation of those who haa at first failed to esti mate its benefits. Addresses were given in Scandinavi an by Rev. Carl Carlson, pastor of the Gustavus Adolphus Swedish Lutheran church; Rev. O. P. Peterson, pastor of the First Swedish Baptist church, and by Rev. T. J. Knutesen, pastor of the Norwegian Congregational church. It is expected to open the barracks complete on Aug. 24, when a number of Salvation Army celebrities will be pres ent. At that time the present bar racks, No. 913 Payne avenue, where the Army has been stationed for the past sixteen years, will be vacated for fhe new. The Scandinavian corps has at present a membership of thirty, and has outgrown its old quarters. BIG PRIZES UP FOR LABOR DAY PARADE Fat Purses Are Offered for Best UnU forms. Marchers and for Women Prizes amounting to $120 will be given to three unions in the Labor day parade. The union presenting the best and most attractive uniform will be given $50, the one preserving the best marching order $30. and $20 to the women's union making the best ap pearance. The line of march will be much the same as in past years, and the unions will be assigned positions according to chance. The parade will disband at Bridge square, following which the unionists will go to Harriet iskmd and spend the remainder of the day. a long list of sports has been agreed upon. , , . Brill Decision Clears Rohland "The decision by Judge Brill in the Payne avenue paving case lifts a load from my shoulders," said Aid. Rohland, of the Fifth ward. "I advised a great many of those assessed that it would be best to pay the amount levied against them for the West Seventh street paving, and when the case was decided that they were not required to pay on the first assessment I was roundly blamed. When the reassess ment is made it is likely that they will feel differently."

Clearwater is one of the oldest towns in Central Minnesota, and thirty years ago was fully as large as it is today. It is a typical New England village, hav ing been settled almost entirely by people from the Eastern states, and its sons and daughters are scattered all over the Northwest and West. The people of Ctearwater have arranged an all-week celebration after the plan put into effect a few years ago in Massa chusetts, Vermont and other New Eng land states, 'and have called it "Old Home" week.

MAN WOULD COLLECT ON DELAYED CONTRACT City Will Claim Penalty if Contractor Brings Suit An interesting case, involving the failure to complete a city contract within the specified time, is expected to come before the courts when Thom as Linnan sues to recover, the amount he alleges is due him for the grading of Forest street, along which it was proposed to construct the extension of the Lafayette street' railway line to Phalen park. Linnan failed to complete the work until some months after the specified time, with the result that the penalty imposed by a provision in the contract more than consumes the $3,000 re maining due. If Linnan seeks to re cover the city will respond by attempt ing to collect -the balance due on the penalty from the bondsmen, Comptrol ler Betz having taken the position that the penalty clauses of contracts should be enforced.

KIO CURRY'S LAST BULLET ENDS GANG Dead Desperado Is Identified as the Noted Train Robber Harvey Logan, better known as Kid Curry, one of the most notorious and most desperate train and bank robbers in the country, was killed last month in Colorado by a posse that was pur suing him and his two pals, the identi fication of the dead man having just been positively made in Knoxville, Term., where he was in jail some time, and from other sources. It had been previously believed that the dead man was .another noted des perado, but the positive identification has set all doubt at rest, thereby finally cleaning up the gang that robbed the Great Northern express at Wagner, Mont.. July 3, 190:1, and car lied off $41,000 in unsigned bank bills consigned to national banks in Helena, Mont. Although Logan's career was largely made up of desperate deeds, the rob bery of the Great Northern attracted the most attention. For participation in this crime Logan was arrested near Knoxville. Term., in the fall of 1902, and after a trial in the United States court was sentenced to twenty years' penal servitude. After sentence ho made a sensational escape from cus tody, and his whereabouts from that time until it became known that he had been killed was a mystery to the officers. The large rewards offered for Ins capture by the Great Northern, the Union Pacific and many other cor porations, as well as the substantial amount offered by Sheriff Cox. of Knoxville, failed to produce the body of the bandit. Other Members of Gang Cared For O. C. Hanks, alias Camilly Haup, Deaf Charley, etc.. and Ben Kilpatrick. a Texan, concerned in the Great Northern holdup, were disposed of. Kilpatrick was arrested in St. Louis Nov. 5. 1901, and was sent to the Leavenworth prison for fifteen years. Hanks resisted arrest in San Antonio, Tex., and was shot and killed. A large proportion of the missing bills were recovered. The numbers and denomi nations of the bills were so well ad vertised that the desperadoes found great difficulty in disposing of them, although they had cleverly forged the signatures of the officers of the banks to which the bills had been shipped. The crime that cost the noted out law his life occurred near Parachute, Col.. June 7, when three men held up the Denver & Rio Grande express. The following day a posse overtook the three robbers and in the running fight that occurred one of the robbers was so badly wounded that'he fell from his horse. "Are s*ou hurt, T*tn?" the officers heard one of the pals of the wounded man call. "It's all up with me and I'll end the whole thing." was the answer, where upon the desperado pulled his six shooter and put a bullet through his brain, dying instantly. The other two men escaped, but their identity is known. Harvey Logan, also known a? Ki.i Curry, was born in Dodson, Mo., a suburb of Kansas City, but while quite young went to Texas and became a cowboy. His reputation as a rustler became such that the stockmen drove him from the country. Going to Ne vada he robbed the Winnemucca (Nev.) bank of $35,000. In this job he was assisted by George Parker and Harry Longbaugh. The three were captured, but Logan made a daring escape from jail and went to Wyom ing. With assistance he held up and robbed the express car on the Union Pacific near Wilcox. In an effort to arrest Logan for the crime near Cas per, Wyo., Joseph Hazen, sheriff of Converse county, lost his life. Logan fired the fatatl shot. The commission of this crime caused Logan to move on to Montana, and he was next heard from in Landusky, Mont. There he killed the founder of the town. Pike Landusky, this crime occurring Christmas day, 1894, and caused the desperado to leave the state. Although a large number of offenses were committed in various sections of the West during the next year or two. in which it was supposed that he was concerned, it was found impossible to trace a specific offense to him until the hold-up of the Great Northern train in 1902. The Logan family produced two oth er desperadoes, brothers of Harvey. George and Lonnie Logan, both of whom also went by the names of Cur ry, died with their boots on, refusing to surrender. Although they were run ning a saloon in a Montana mining camp, they were suspected of being implicated in some of the crimes of Harvey, their brother. Before the of ficers could arrest them they sold their business and left the country. Lonnie Logan was located at his old home in Dodson. Mo., July 17, 1900, and in at tempting to make his escape was shot. George Logan was located at Green river Utah, March 28, 1900, and also resisted arrest. In a running fight h*> was killed by a posse that pursued. The death of Harvey Logan wipes out the immediate Logan family The identification of the dead rob ber was secured through the Pinkerton detective agency, and news of the fact was yesterday conveyed to O. O. Rin dal. superintendent of the local agency, it being stated that, while Logan had been disposed of, the other notorious character first supposed to be the dead man is still alive and at large. Has Pictures of Curry KNOXYILLE, Term., July 10.—Low ell F. Spence, a dectective employed by a Chicago agency, has returned to Chi cago after securing local identifica tions of two pictures, which he had in his possession, supposed to be photo graphs of the supposed Montana bandit and train robber, Harvey Logan, alias Kid Curry. Early on the morning of July 8, a gang held up a Denver & Rio Grande train, near Parachute, Col., but after blowing two safes and shooting one railway employe they secured only $10. A posse of cowboys was at once or ganized and chase given. In the chase one of the bandits was shot from his horse by a cowboy, and as soon as he. fell "was seen to shoot himself through the head. Pictures were taken of the dead man. Believing the photos to be those of Logan, the sheriff came here to identify the bandit. Sheriff Fox, from whom Logan escaped positively identifies the photographs as those of Logan. So did Jailer Thomas Bell, whom Logan held up at the point of a pistol while escaping from jail. The outstanding reward for the bandit is variously estimated at between $18,000 and $30,000. It is probable that the re mains will be exhumed and further identification established, as Logan had many bullet wounds on his body. When he escaped from the Knox county jail he was under sentence of seme twenty years for bringing into the state and passing unsigned notes of the Bank of Montana, $40,000 worth of which he and his gang secured in a Great Northern express holdup near Wagner. Before he was captured h,ere he shot two policemen, but they recov ered. ARCHIE HAS GROUCH Public Baths Bear Swats His Sister Teddie Archie, the Harriet island bear, con tinues to* display his' wicked temper, yesterday throwing his- mate, who hap pens also to be his sister, from the top of the tree in their cage. The female bear, called Teddie, first climbed the tree, and was followed by Archie. The latter took unkindly to the idea that Teddie was attracting so much attention, and exercising his greater strength hurled her from the tree by a powerful blow. Teddie land ed on the concrete floor with a thud and dragged herself to a corner of the cage. She escaped without broken bones. ' Not satisfied with this performance Archie growled loudly and struck the roof of the cage several blows. As the roof showed no signs of giving way he desisted. Climbing down the tree he attacked the bars. These proved too strong for him. however, but he spent some time-in otherwise demonstrating the fact that he was in bad humor. The frequent rains of late have made the island the most popular early morning resort in the' city, thousands upon thousands of mushrooms being gathered daily. The dainty product goes to the first comers, but at no time during- the past week has the entire amount been taken, there yesterday re maining innumerable sun-burned shoots to be trampled by the crowd. The growth of the mushrooms is due to the dumping on the island of a large amount of street sweepings, and it is claimed that the production will in crease yearly for some time. The growth of the mushrooms Is greatest on the older part of the island, and if they are to be gathered should be tak en before the sun gets hot. AFTER SCHOOL SITE First and Second Warders Pick Locations Although the bonds for the erection of the new high school in the eastern part of the city have not yet been voted, it is evident that there will be some difficulty in choosing a location. The Second ward will come forward with a claim that the best location for the school is somewhere in the vicin ity of Arcade and Minnehaha streets, while many of the ■'First warders be lieve the proper location is somewhere near M-innehaha and Burr streets. The choice of the location lies with Mayor Smith and President Holman, of the board of school inspectors, and it is altogether likely that the choice will be made in favor of one of the two locations, mentioned. The question as to the issue of the bonds will not come in :the regular course until July, when the assembly holds its next regular session, and it is not likely that the board of aldermen will act until the first Tuesday in Au gust. The resolution authorizing the issuance of the bonds is so worded that the school inspectors will be compell ed to pay for the site out of its own funds, there being no provision that the entire amount be expended for school buildings. BOARD OF PARDONS WILL MEET TODAY Heavy Calendar of Cases Will Be Con sidered at Quarterly Meeting The state board of pardons at the state capitol today will consider at its quarterly meeting one of the heaviest calendars of cases .in its experience. The board, which consists of Gov. S. R. Van Sant, Chief Justice C. M. Start and Attorney General W. J.

He became discouraged, disposed of the farm and moved back into St. Paul, engaging the house at 599 Edmund street, which the family took posses sion of only last Thursday. His friends became alarmed at, his dejected demeanor, and his sister-in law, Mrs. Lindquist, 833 Rondo street, asked her brother residing at Monte video to come to St. Paul to take Brown to his home, in the hope that the change would relieve his mind. Lindquist arrived in St. Paul Saturday night, and when the report of the mys terious drowning at Forest Lake was read at the Lindquist home yesterday morning it was suspected that Brown was the man. Brown was forty-eight years old and was a native of Sweden. He is sur vived by his wife and one daughter, seventeen years old. He was a mem ber of the A. O. U. W.

TUNING A PHYSICIAN He Got Out, and Then in Tune If coffee has you where your nerves demand it each morning you have a wreck ahead sure. Think hack for a year and notice how the sick spells grow on you Instead of getting less. You are running into nervous pros tration or some fixed disease absolutely certain, and when it suddenly takes full possession you will find nothing, abso lutely nothing, in drugs that will heal you. Nature demands penalty for the daily hurt to the nerve centers by cof fee, and you must pay the full price. A physician of Cornwall, Ont., says of himself: "For years coffee was to me what rum is to the toper, but I kept getting worse and worse in health. "I suffered from continuous nervous twitching, insomnia, restless, miserable nights, nerves all gone. Craving for coffee was intense, but it put me lowfr and lower in health. Something must be done, so I tried leaving off the cof fee and using Postum Food Coffee. The first trial wife and I were both disgust ed, for we were careless in brewing it, but we went carefully into the subject of preparing Postum and found we had only allowed it to brew about five min ute, and that won't make good Postum. So next time it was boiled full iifteen minutes after boiling began, then serv ed with good cream and it was tooth some and delicious. That marked the beginning of my return to health. Now I sleep well, the old twitching has dis appeared, and. in short, lam well again. My good wife has also been much ben efited by leaving off coffee and using Postum Food Coffee. We have aban doned the old coffee for all time." Name given by Postum Co., Battle Creek, Mich. There's a reason why po many intel ligent people and physicians drink Postum in place of ordinary coffee. Look in each pkg. for the famous lit tle book, "The Road to Wellville."
