That Causes All the Trouble.
When the house Is afire, it’s like a
body when disease begins to show,
it’s no time to talk, but time to act—
delay is dangerous remove the
cause of the trouble at once.
“For a number of years,” says a
Kansas lady, “I felt sure that coffee
was hurting me, and yet I was so
fond of it I could not give it up. I
paltered with my appetite, and of
course yielded to the temptation to
drink more. At last I got so bad that
[ made up my mind I must either quit
the use of coffee or die.
“Everything I ate distressed me,
and I suffered severely almost all the
time with palpitation of the heart. I
frequently woke up in the night with
the feeling that I was almost gone—
my heart seemed so smothered and
weak in its action that I feared it
would stop beating. My breath grew
short and the least exertion set me to
panting. I slept but little and suf
fered from rheumatism.
“Two years ago I stopped using the
old kind of coffee and began to use
Postum Food Coffee, and from the
very first I began to improve. It
worked a miracle! Now I can eat
anything and digest it without trou
ble. I sleep like a baby, and my
heart beats full, strong and easily.
My breathing has become steady and
normal, and my rheumatism has left
me. I feel like another person, and
it is all due to quitting coffee and
using Postum Food Coffee, for I
haven’t used any medicine and none
would have done any good as long as
I kept drugging with coffee.” Name

Harry Thaw's G tinsel Will Try to
Save Him from c ectric Chair, lor
Murder of Architect White.
The state laid its cast against Har
ry K. Thaw in court at New York
Monday in a plain, unemotional story
of the shooting on the Madison
Square roof garden, leaving the mal
ice and the motive to be inferred from
the act —and the defense replied with
a plea of hereditary insanity.
It was asserted that Thaw, in slay
ing Stanford White, believed he was
acting as an agent of providence, that
real or fancied wrongs committed
against him by the architect and ter
mer friends of liis wife had boiled
and bubbled in his brain until at last
there came the explosive impulse to
kill. When the deed was done, Thaw
made no move to escape its conse
quences, but, holding the fatal re
volver aloft, he stood as if mutely pro
claiming to the world, “The deed is
done; it was right, It was not
Thus Thaw’s counsel outlined his
case to the jury Monday afternoon
after the prosecution had occupied
less than two hours of the morning
sitting of the court in relating
through eye-witnesses the narrative of
the tragedy. When the defense had
interposed its plea and outlined its
case, an adjournment was taken until
Tuesday, when the first witness in
Thaw’s behalf will be heard.
“You will hear the story of this
man’s insanity," Attorney John 13.
Gleason, for the defense, promised
the jury, "from his mother, from kis
wife, from his relatives and from his
physicians. You will judge him by his
acts, ny the hereditary and stress
which entered into his madness, and
when you come to judge him you will
say to yourself that his act may have
been one of insanity, but it was not
one of crime.”

the most important witnesses has long
been known; that his mother wa3 to

do honor to the aeronauts Signori

Mont Blanc without alpenstock or

to protest against ‘the practice o t
