Layoon, 1850 Lincoln Street, stubbornly refused to leave the bedimlo of her diet baby non. Instead, without relinquishing her vigil in the child's sick room, she took steps to restore her own shattered lieaith. So successful was she, simply through a small change in her diet, that, by the time the child was well, she, too, had fully recovered. She tolls the story as follows: "Day and night beside a tired, sick little baby I sat, although I was desperately sick, also. But when I left the room my small son cried. I was draining my vitality; living on mv nerve. The baby wiw so horribly ill, J could not have wilon had my life de> punded upoji it. Physician brings help "Onr physician, a life-long friend, notiTig the deep circles under my eyes and. realizing my inability to cat, brought me a can of Postum and commanded mo to drink it. I had used "iifTein beverages all my life; had lived on them during Junior's illness, but there were times when I was so ill I. could not hold my head up. In desperation I tried Postum. "In a single week, confined to that room under the most terrible nerve strain imaginable, I recovered my poise mid regained my sense of .fitness. Gradually my appetite returned und, ut the end of another week, my weight had increased by a pound. I kept on with Postum and by the time Bonny was a convalescent, my husband and I were confirmed users. "My nerves are no longer 'jangly'j my hand no longer shakes; my complexion has cleared up. Before, I had indigestion after each meal, and chronic headaches. Now T neither. And the funniest thing, although I have always been underweight, in the last month I luive gained three pounds." The severest test Probably no drink Has ever been called upon to "make good" under such severe conditions as Mrs. Ljvyson describes above. Yet Mrs. Layson tells how her nerves quieted down, her indigestion disappeared, her weight in- er<?Bsed— when Postum became he* mealtime drink, in place of caffetn. Here's hoping that your norves haw not reached the shattered condition that Mrs. Layson found hers in. Here'* hoping you take steps now to prevent such a tragedy—by eliminating caffeio beverages from your diot-^-by i making Postum your meal time drink instead! Try this diet change for thirty dayg —then check results.
