MORE THAN EVER Increased Capacity for Mental Labor Since Leaving Off Coffee. Many former coffee drinkers who have mental work to perform, day after day, have found a better capaci ty and greater endurance by using Postum instead of ordinary coffee. An Illinois woman writes: "I had drank coffee for about twen ty years, and finally had what tho doctor called 'coffeo heart.' 1 was nervous and extremely despondent; had little mental or physical strength left.; havd kidney trouble and constipa tion; "lXa first noticeable benefit derived from the chango from coffee to Postum was the natural action of the kidneys and bowels. In two weeks my heart action vu greatly improved and my nerves steady. "Then I became less despondent, and the desire to be active again showed proof of renewed physical and mental strength. "I am steadily gaining In physical strength and brain power. I formerly did mental work and had to give it up on account of coffee, but since using Postum I am doing hard mental labor with less fatigue than ever before."

The Skeleton in His By STACY Copyright, ipio, by Associated Literary Prats The soul-racking tale poured Into the ears of little Ethel Murray could result only in one thing a missive promptly penned to the profligate Em ery Jarvis, assuring him that she had learned nil, and asking to be released from the engagement. "I know of the skeleton in your closet, wrote Ethel (here she applied a dainty bit of cambric to streaming eyes ordinarily as sunshiny and blue as the sky of a June morning). "I am surprised at you! Had you come to mo and told me all, I feel that I could have forgiven yflli but never, now that I find the truth through other people. I return herewith your ring." The rest of the letter was a ram bling plaint, save on one subject the engagement existing between' these two must be considered past history. That was plain. For more than a year the daughter of Burgess Murray, the biggest man politically In the communlty.and Em ery Jarvis, a clerk in Gisson's druj store, had been making plans for a future that would embrace them both. Jarvis was an ambitious young fellow, well liked by every one, and seeming ly having the best of habits. Ethel had believed in him thorough ly until tho gossiping tongue of old Mrs. Pollet had disclosed certain things that no girl of spirit could .tol erate in her fiance. Therefore the re turn of tho handsome solitaire that she had so proudly worn and the letter to her betrothed asking for her release. Jarvis read the lines In the seclu sion of the little prescription room in tho rear of the drug shop and his dark "I know of the Skeleton in Your Closet," Wrote Ethel. eyes clouded as ho vainly Etrove to solve the cause of the maiden's anger. "Sho couldn't be cross about a little thing like this," he ruminated. "I won der how she found it out, anyway?" That evening Jarvis called up tho girl. She was not at home. During the ensuing week he made several other fruitless attempts to see her. It was aftor this that the Ire of the youth assumed significant proportions. "My dear Ethel," wrote Jarvis, "I know, and you have not been at home. Patience has ceased to bo the prover bial virtue, and I shall not try to see you asraln. I am done. I release you from the engagement, as you ask. I also acknowledge the skeleton in my closet, but why a normal-minded maid should take this amiss is beyond me. If anything, my dear, I am rather proud of it." Ethel positively stormed when she read this communication. She clinched her fists until the nails bit cruelly Into the tender flesh and angrily tossed her little blonde head. "I shall never, never have anything more to do with men," she complained bitterly. "The very braienneas of that Emery Jarvis to say that a 'normal minded girl shouldn't take such things amiss. I'm sure no girl with common sense would allow her fiance to act ia that scandalous manner. Anyway, I'm clad it's all over." To prove thh.

Ethel made no attempt lo lalvo the wound caused by her letter. ly m Closet E. BAKER nor did Jarvis try to explain away the misunderstanding. Gradually the gossips In the little town and there were many grew ac customed to the new order of things, and everybody ceased to interest themselves in the affairs of the young couple. It was a month after this that old Tollit (he was a portly butcher, own ing the meat shop next to the drug emporium) ventured to incorporate pomething of a remark that caught the youth's .puzzled interest. "What was that?" demanded Jarvis, ears metaphorically a-cock. "Just re peat that last sentence." "I said," came from the butcher, "that that there book I've been read ing 'Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde' re minds me of your doings." He poked a pudgy forefinger playfully into tho ribs of the youth. "You'll have te be more explicit," snapped the drug clerk. "I can't un derstand. What are you driving at?" "Can't understand, eh?" commented the other, sourly. He was angry at the lone of the lad. "Well, I guess I can put it plainer, all right. I mean that you tried to play double Just liko that Jekyll-Hyde feller did. Every evening after you called on the girl you was engaged to, you went straight to the house of old Doc. Blyly to seo his daughter. My wife she seen you do it time and again, she did." The dull red stained the face of the angry butcher. "She's the one that put a crimp in you, too. Ethel Mur ray is too fine a girl to be galavanting around with a young fellow, that sho thinka thinks a heap of her, and all tho while he don't, but la making her out a fool by sneaking away from her hoime to call on another girl." "So It was your wife that caused this trouble between Ethel nnd me, was It? Pity she can't learn to attend ta her own affairs, isn't it?" The butcher, hi3 mlud relieved, stamped heavily out of the drug store, but he left n knowing youth behind him. Mrs. rollit was a gossip monger of some notoriety in tho community. Slie resided Just opposite the Blyly home, and now that the itate moat man had given him his cue, Jarvis could understand many things. That evening, his heavy Jaws set firmly and his broad shoulders thrown defiantly back, tho tVrug clerk mount ed the steps to the Murray homo and rang the bell. Ethel answered tho summons. An angry flush dotted her cheeks when sho saw who her visitor was, but Em ory Ignored these trouble signs, and pushed by her and into the familiar parlor. "I am hero to explain," began Jar vis. "Mrs. Pollet's loquacious hus band has Just told things, and I think I understand." "I don't care for explanation," in terrupted little Mls3 Murray formally. "Nevertheless," persisted Jarvis, pa tiently, "you arc about, to recelvo them. "Listen, dear, I have never called on Millio Blyly in my life let alono after I left here. When you re ferred to tho skeleton in my closet, I took tho phrase literally. Thero is a skeleton in my closet a six-foot skel eton of a man that Dr. Blyly loaned me to aid me in my studies, because well, I'm studying medicine with him, you see. I don't want to be a drug clerk all my life. I" But here his late fiancee, face asmlle. Interrupted his sentence in a very plcaclng way. Financier by Inheritance. Joseph Morgan, J. P.

Scottish humor i3 dry rather than boisterous, and I always think there is exquisite drollery in the story of the Stonehaven railway porter and the Salvation Array "captain." To catch tho hang of a little yarn readers must remember that Stonehaven lies to tho south of Aberdeen. The London train had drawn up at Stonehaven on ac count of a slight mishap a mile or two ahead, and Andra, the old porter, had got Into conversation with a Salvation Army officer who had popped his head out of tho compartment to ask the reason for the delay. "Aye aye," mused Andra, after giv ing the desired Information, "ye'll bo for Alberdeen, I'm thlnkin'?" "Yes, my man," w-as tho reply; "I'm bound for Aberdeen a very wicked place, I'm told!'.' "What mlcht yo be goln' to dae there, sir. If it's as bad as a that?" asked Andra, rather amused at , the visitor's words. "Ah," was tho pious answer, "I'm going to drive the devil out of Aber deen." Like lightning came from the old porter the pawky retort: "See an' drive him north, cbell; haud him well to the north!" Ex change. Looking Aftor the Eggs. Lady Betty, who is four years old and never misses a trick, was taken her supper, and with all the importance and sprightly dignity of her yearo calmly ordered poached eggs on toast. While the little family ,group was awaiting its service the "kiddie" amused herself by looking out of the window, pressing against a screen to get a closer view of something below. She was warned by her mother that tho screen might glvo way and let her fall to tho sidewalk, perhaps Injuring her terribly. She drew away, thought a minute, and then said naively: "Would I full if the screen went out?" "You certainly would," was her mothr er's reply. "And would I get awful hurted?" "Very likely."
