Are They Good to Eat Uncooked? Sarah Tyson Borer, the famous food expert, answered this question, "No, except in countries where they grow." Some one asked, "What- about Cereal Coffees?" "Many of them are cofiee and very poor coffee at that, do not be deceived by them. If it is a true cereal coffee, it is an excellent food drink."

A week's use of Postum will make one feel that elastic thrill of life that one rememoers made existence a bliss in the boyhood days, and those delight* of health come back again if we feed the body oh properly selected food, such as is found in Postum. Grocers sell Postum. aa excavation had been made about the base of the pole, was directed bv defendant's foreman, Frank Tarn, to aicend the pole and tie a rope to the top thereof; that while carrying out this order the pole was shaken and plaintiff lost hi« bold and fell to the ground, dislocating and fracturing his ankle.
