Percy Parkington rose and brushed the dust from his knees. Then, drawing himself up to his full height, he gazed resentfully upon the form of Miss Muriel Muggins, who nonchalantly fanned herself the while. Very well, Miss Muggins, came in bitter tones from Percy. Oh, very well! You have spurued me, it is true! indeed, you have spumed me twice! liut, though despair eats my heart, I ahull not die!

TO DROP But Many Drop It. HARD A young Calif, wife talks about coffee: It was hard to drop Mocha and Java and give Postuni a trial, but my nerves were so shattered that I was a nervous wreck and of course that means all kinds of ails. At first I thought bicycle riding caused it and I gave it up, but my condition remained unchanged. I did not want to acknowledge coffee caused the trouble for I was very fond of it. At that time s friend came to live with us, and I noticed that after he had been with us a week he -- would not drink his coffee any more. I asked him the reason. He replied, 'I hare not had a headache since I left off drinking coffee, some months ago, till last week, when I began again, here at your table. I don't see how anyone can like coffee, anyway, after drinking Postura!' I said nothing, but at once ordered a package of Poutum. That was five months ago. and we have drank no coffee since, except on two occasions when we had company, and the result each time was that my husband could not sleep, but lay awake and tossed and talked half the night. We were convinced that coffee caused his suffering, so he returned to Postum, convinced that coffee was an enemy. Instead of a friend, and he is troubled no more with insomnia. I. myself, have gained 8 pounds in weight, and my nerves have ceased to quiver. It seems so easy no to quit coffee that caused our aehes and ails and take up rostuin." Read the little book.

Miss Jenny! Miss Leslie had forced herself to take a nibble of the raw fish. The flavor proved less repulsive than she bad expected, and its moisture was so grateful to her parched mouth that she began to eat with eagerness.
