However, for • the others, we offer a ready-made story we ran across,the other day; true, tod. When coffee was first introduced to England in 1652, it was advertised as "a very wholesome and physical drink, having many excellent Virtues, helping digestion, arid being a coughs, goi>d rentedy against colds, rhumes, . headache, dropsy, gout and scurvy." , One of these reasons ought to be enough to satisfy anybody.

We are sure that he would have liked to have an answer fast- 1 - be 'ore the coming election-—but that looks beyond his reach. It is a funny thing—all of our experts oh the far east—including General Douglas McArthur, warned us against ever getting involved in a ground war in Asia—but in spite of their warnings we got involved and we're getting in deeper, every day, it seems- .
