' Our American people, who are and overstrained, would never drink coffee if they know how well and clear-headed they would be without it. "When I was a little child," says Miss M. D'Alt of Topeka, Kan. "I commenced the drinking of coffee. Natu-I rally nervous, it made me as the years went on a most miserable wretch. al ways in an unnatural state of excitement. I found, as I grew older, that I would at times stagger as a drunken person. It was coffee, for I had no desire to drink anything in liquors. "My health was very bad and my brother and I were tai-'g of quitting coffee, ' when I was stricken with typhoid fever. Upon my recovery, my brother wisely allowed me no coffee, and wild if I wished to be well again I must top Its use. "For 11 number of years cold wuter was iny only drink, but this was poor comfort until about three years ago a package of Postum Food Coffee was l"ft nt our house. We prepared It as directed and found a wholesome, delicious drink: more than this ,lt has strengthened me without causing those terrible 'after effects' formerly left upon me by coffee. "I recommend Postum to all my friends and In my varied experience I find it a safe drink without effect on the nerves, and the only one which with me has filled a long felt want." Many people who have stopped drinking coffee because of its effect on the nerves will find th rfure food drink, Postum, a beverage that when properly made touches the spot, pleases the eye and palate and fills thg vacancy as no other drink can.
