I was a lover of coffee and UBed It for many years, and did not realize the) bad effects I was suffering from Its use. (Tea is Just as Injurious as cof fee because It, too, contains caffeine, the same drug found in coffee.) At first I was troubled with Indiges tion. I did not attribute the trouble to the use of coffee, but thought It arose from other causes. With these attacks I had sick headache, nausea and vomiting. Finally my stomach was in such a condition I could scarce ly retain any food. "I consulted a physician; was told all my troubles came from Indiges tion, but was not Informed what caused the indgestton. I kept on with the coffee, and kept on with the trou bles, too, and my case continued to grow worBe from year to year until It developed Into chronic diarrhea, nau sea and severe attacks of vomiting. I ' could keep nothing on my stomach and became a mere shadow, reduced from 159 to 128 pounds. "A specialist Informed tne I had a Very severe case of catarrh of the stomach, which had got so bad he could do nothing for me, and I became convinced my days were numbered. 'Then I chanced to see an article set ting forth the good qualities of Postum and explaining how coffee Injured peo ple so I concluded to give Postum a trial. I soon saw the good effects my headaches were less frequent, nausea and vomiting only came on at long In tervals and I was soon a changed man, feeling much better. "Then I thought I could stand coffee again, but as soon as I tried It my old troubles returned and I again turned to Postum. Would you believe it, did this three times before I had sense enough to quit coffee for- good and keep on with the Postum. I am now a well man with no more headaches, sick stomach or vomiting, and have al ready gained back to 147 pounds.1 Name given by Postum Co., Battle Battle Creek, Mich.
