There Is a Class of Teople
Who are injured by the use of coffee.
Recently there has. been placed in all
the grocery stores a new preparation
called GRAIN-O, made of pure grains,
that takes the place of coffee. The most
delicate stomach receives it without
distress, and but few can tell it from
coffee. It does not cost over one-fourth
as much. Children may drink it with
great benefit. 15 cents and 23 cents
per package. Try It. Ask for ORAIN-O.
It's all work and no play for the man
who pumps the organ.
KNOWING H0VPAYS.
The Moral of This Old, Old Anecdote
Will Save a Ilcnp of Trouble
and a rile of Money.
Something had gone wrong with
some simple part of a stationary engine
and the stoker could not fix it. After,
spending a day or two on it he was
forced to ask the aid of a more compe
tent workman. He failed also, and
someone suggested the employment of f
a local celebrity, a sort of a tinker at any
mechanical job. There is generally
one in every locality. He gave two or
three raps with bis hammer and
touched up a rod or two, when tho
pounding, or whatever ailed the ma
chine, ceased. When asked to make
out his bill, it read as follows:
To Fixing En?lne 8 .50
To Knowing How 10.00
810.50
This anecdote clearly demonstrates
that it paj's to know how. Engineer
J. J. Jefferies, of the Royal Cycle works
at Marshall, Mich., residing in that
city at No. 141 S. Marshall St., tells in
the following of his experience with
the little conqueror; it will pay you to
know how he got rid of a troublesome
companion, lie says:
My kidneys troubled me more or less for years
and finally became so bad that 1 wt.s compelled
to give up locomotive cnfrlneerine on account of
tho Jarring of the train, und seek employment
as a stationary engineer. When tho attacks of
kidney complaint occurred I could not rest or
lie comfortably In any position and often in tho
mornincr after ft restless night I was more
tired and worn out than when I went to bed.
"When the attacks were at their helsht I was
unable to stoop or lift anything and despite the
use of every remedy that camo to my notice,
preparations recommended to mo by my ac
quaintances, numerous plasters of all kinds
worn day and nljrht, I was unsuccessful in pro
curing nhvthinj? to help me until I tried Doun's
Kidney Tills. The first box helped mo. I stead
ily improved while taking the second and I
stopped tho treatment when I had finished tb.9
third as I considered there was no more neces
sity for continuing the remedy.
