GREGORY OF RHODE IS LAND LOSES WATCH CHARM Mother and Son Making Transcontinental Automobile Trip From Atlantic to Pacifio . That an appendix is a valuable possession, even though It causes untold suffering, Is demonstrated by the fact that A. W. Gregory, of Wlckford, Rhode Island, who with his mother, Mrs H. Gregory, wife of the late Wm. Gregory, of the state of Rhode Island, Is making a transcontinental trip In a Stevens-Duryea automobile from the Atlantic coast to the Pacific coast, has sought to recover his appendix which he lost while en route on his extensive trip. Mrs Gregory and her son left Dav-nptrt yesterday morning for. Des Moines after spending four days In this city. Mr Gregory is the son of William Gregory, governor of Rhode Island, who died while in office on ."Dec. 16, 1901. Upon the death of his auier, jur uregury, who la a jcivio of age. was made manager or the Wlckford Worsted Mills, 20 miles west of Providence, at the age of 19 years, . and last fall In October he was taken sick with typhoid fever. Partially recovering from the effects of this malady, he was seized with an ' attack of appendicitis, for I which he was operated on March 16, i 1905. The appendix was removed and ! Mr Gregory, after his recovery from j the effects' of the operation, had It j placed In a silver receptacle by a jew-' eler and wore Is as a watch charm. The physician who attended Ml Gregory prescribed that he must abandon all business activities f o! several years and seek the open air Accordingly the home In Wlckford was closed up and he and his mother started on .a transcontinental tour in an automobile. Leaving Wickford, R. I., May 15, the tour was commenced across the I state of Connecticut, New York, j through Albany, Rochester, Syracuse ' end Buffalo. Somewhere between the Iroquois hotel In Buffalo and the little town of Hamburg, Mr Gregory lost his watch charm containing his appen dix. The receptacle was of no value to anyone except himself and he has advertised In nearly every town In Pennsylvania and New Tork for the recovery of his appendix. Journeying eastward, Mr Gregory and his mother have passed tnrouph the states of Pennsylvania, Ohio, Mich igan, Indiana, Illinois and reached Imvenport last Thursday after travel ' Ing overland over 2.000 mllps. Mr Gregory Is making the trip for the benefit of his health and he is aiming at no records, but rather to see the country and regain his health. Mrs Gregory enjoys the trip and wherever they find a town which appeals to them they make a few days visit. Davenport had little or no attractions for him but he remained here expecting to be accompanied westward to San Francisco by Dr. K. C. Gould, a graduate of Brown university, who has , IN COLONEL'S TOWN Things Happen From the home of the famous "Keyhnel Keeyartah of ("artorsvllle" away down South, comes an enthusiastic letter about Postum. "I wa In very delicate health, suffering from indigestion und a nervous trouble so severe that I could hardly sleep.

"My health began to Improve as soon as the drug effect of the old coffee was removed and the Postum Coffee had i time to make Its influence felt, My ' nervous troubles were speedily relieved and the sleep which the old coffees drove from my pillow always came to soothe and strengthen me after t had drunk Postum In a very short time I began to sleep better than I had for years before. I have now used Postum Coffee for several years and like It better and find it more beneficial than when I first began. It is nn unspeakable Joy to be relieved of the "Id distress and sickness."
