Pisa's leaning tower, but the "Old
Lady of Threadneedle street," as the
bank is affectionately named by Lon

piling beneath It that caused the fall
of the Canpanlle at Venice. The piles
under the Dank of England are being
removed and a six-foot raft of con

"I dined one evening with Abbey In
his house lit Chelsea, and after dinner
we walked in the blue twilight on the
Chelsea embankment.
"As we passed Old Swan House and
Clock House, and the other superb
residences that front the river, I re
proached Abbey for his extravagance.
" 'Why,' I said, pointing toward Clock
House, 'if you had saved your money,
you might be living in a palace like
that today.' ,
"But Abbey, with a laugh, rather
got the better of me. He rattled off
this epigram and It's an epigram I'll

What She Gained by Trying Again.
A failure at first' makes us esteem

A family in Minnesota that now en
Joys Postura would never have known
how good It is if the mother had been
discouraged by the failure of her
first attempt to prepare It. Her son
tells the story:
"We had never used Postum till last
spring when father brought home a
package one evening Just to try It. Wo
had heard from our neighbors, and In
fact every one who used It, how well
they liked It.
"Well, the next morning Mother
brewed It about five minutes, just as
she had been in the habit of doing
with coffee without paying special at
tention to the directions printed on
the package. It looked weak and
didn't have a very promising color, but
nevertheless father raised his cup
with an air of exceptancy. It certain
ly did give him a great surprise, but
I'm afraid it wasn't a very pleasant
one, for he put down his cup with a
look of disgust.
Mother wasn't discouraged though,
and next morning gave It another trial,
letting It stand on the stove till boil
ing began and then letting It boll for
fifteen or twenty minutes, and this
time we were all so pleased with It
that we have used it ever since.
"father wasxa confirmed dyspeptic
and a cup of coffee was to him like poi
son. Soihe never drinks It any more,
but drtnks Postum regularly. He Isn't
troubled with dyspepsia now and Is
