Two men were discussing the var ious food -products now being supplied in such variety and abundance. One, a grocer, said, "I frequently try a package or so of any certain article befofe offering it to my trade, and in that way sometimes form a different Idea than my customers have. "For Instance, I thought I would try some Postum Food Coffee, to see what reason there was for such a call for it At breakfast I didn't like It and supper proved the same, so I naturally con cluded that my taste was different from that of the customers who bought It right along. "A day or two after, I waited on a lady who was buying a 25c package and told her I couldn't understand how one could fancy the taste of Postum. 1 know Just what is the matter,' she said, 'yon put the coffee boiler on the stove for Just fifteen minutes, and ten minutes of that time it simmered, and perhaps five minutes It boiled; now if you will have it left to boll full fifteen minutes after It commences to boll, you will find a delicious Java-like beverage, rich in food value of gluten and phosphates, so choice that you will never abandon It particularly when you see the great gain in health.'

DEVOTES PART OF EVERY DAY TO PUBLIC AFFAIRS fYSTER BAY. Although President U Roosevelt is settled down at Oys ter Bay for a four months' vacation he will not be able to escape from a good deal of the labors and duties of his Job. The public business at Washing ton goes on Just the same. There are officials to appoint questions ot policy to decide, commissions in the army and nary to sign, many other things that no one but the president can at tend to, and which President Roose velt would let no other man attend to even if he hid the power. While he spends the summer In his modest and comfortable country house at Sagamore Hill he Is obliged to de Ycte a few hours a day often more than a few to the nation's business. When the president went down to Oyster Bay recently he was accom panied by Secretary Loeb, Assistant Secretary Latta, and four clerks from the executive staff at Washington. They began work next day in the ex ecutive offices in the village of Oyster Bay, three miles from the president's THE executive offices at "the sum mer capital,"- as Oyster Bay folk take pride in calling their "village, never fail to Impress visitors by their unpretenttousnes. They consist of seven office rooms and a storeroom, Into which a loft above a corner gro cery has been divided. Mr. Moore, the enterprising purveyor of pure food to the villagers and surrounding gentry, is a famous man every summer The whole country bears each summer In the press dispatches of "the executive offices over Moore's grocery." Mr. Moore's pride would be greater If the president should come down some day and transact some Important piece of business there. Secretary Loeb has a large, sunny room in the front overlooking the bus- LOEB DECIDES WHO CAN SEE CHIEF EXECUTIVE A LARGE part of Mr. Loeb's busi ness in summer is deciding "who's who" In the matter of requests for per sonal interviews with the president Few persons are allowed to go up to Sagamore Hill and ring the door bell. Of course, cabinet officers, senators and a few representatives would be permitted, if they chose to arrive in Oyster Bay unannounced, to drive up to the presidential door and send their cards to Mr. Roosevelt But these privileged men are the very ones who would never think of doing so. All visiting statesmen write or telegraph beforehand, asking whether It will be convenient for the president to see them on a given day. The query and the answeij pass through Loeb's hands. He writes these gentlemen that "the I ' 1 NO ADMITTANCE THE cabinet is rarely called together in the president's vacation, and then only to consider matters regard ed as of , the highest Importance. Nevertheless, In the course of a sum mer most of the members of the cabi net pay a -visit either of business or friendship to Sagamore Hill. They of ten dine and sleep there. Some of the president's closest friends in the sen ate, members of. the "tennis" cabinet or literary cronies, are overnight guests. But most of Mr,, Roosevejt's visitors who call by appointment are asked to arrive In the forenoon and to stay for luncheon. , It is the impression at Oysjer Bay that there will be many such visits by the closest political friends of the ad ministration from next week on. The master of Sagamore Hill is watching with the closest scrutiny the develop ment of the campaign for the nomina tion of his successor, and it is likely that he will have frequent consulta tions with the leading statesmen who are devoted to him and his policies. Any incident tending to' show a recru desence of the "reactionary conspi racy'' would almost Inevitably be fol lowed by a procession of party chief tains eager to proffer advice and swear allegiance anew, both to Mr. Roosevelt and to the public through the prats. , , There Is no barrier up to, prevent person i who can give a fceatszU XL 2 house.

The clerks At the capi tal are therefore in as close touch with their immediate chief, Mr. Loeb, as if he were in his own office there.-' Mr. Loeb, in turn, is in constant touch with the president The whole ar rangement works out in the same manner as if the capital and all tha departments had been moved from Washington to Oyster Bay. One difference is that the president never visits the executive offices la Oyster Bay. Whatever business re quires to be brought to his attentlot is taken up by Secretary Loeb to Sag amore H11L Mr. Loeb goes to tha president in the forenoon about 11 o'clock, after he has gone through the mall and sorted out from It the letters and official papers which need to pass under the executive eye or hand.

His door is always open; any one can walk la upon him, get a pleasant greeting and see as much of the government wheels going round as he could in Mr. Loeb's Washington office. All he will see is Mr. Loeb busy at a big flat-topped desk, with another desk close by cov ered with the newspapers which the secretary to the president reads dili gently. He will see the rest of the staff in the five other rooms. One room is occupied by one of two tele graph operators who are on duty by turns from nine a. m. to 11 p. m. They are kept busy most of the time. Much of the matter is summaries of corre spondence, to which Secretary Loeb directs routine formal, answers to be returnee. president will be glad to see them at such and such an hour on the day mentioned." The president has a telephone in his house, but If you, Mr. Citizen, had something la your mind that you thought the nation's chief ought to know about at once, you couldn't go into the nearest pay booth and call him up. The telephone exchange girls at, Oyster Bay have a strict rule on that AH persons, from cabinet rank down who call for Mr. Boosevelt's) number are switched over, to ilrT Loeb. If it's all right Mr. Loeb says so, and you "get" the president If Mr. Loeb doesn't know you. he asks you your business and probably ad vises you to put it into writing, for Mr. Loeb is a methodical and careful secretary.
