Why Coffee, is Healthful
To rise the words of a prominent physician: “An'ordi
nary infusion of coffee destroyed the germ of erysipelas in one
day, the germ of splenic fever in one to three hours, the ty
phoid bacillus in one to two days, and the microbe of Asiatic
cholera in seven hours.” This is proof conclusive of the value
of coffee as a healthful beverage.
Couple this fact with the recent exposure of the widely
advertised substitute-coffee that was found to contain an ex
cess of very ordinary coffee! Aren’t you convinced by this
combined evidence that good, old-fashioned coffee is the best
beverage after all?
Such coffees are Filson Club, at 85c the pound, and Mac-
Veagh’s famous brands—Benito, at 85c; Telmo, at 25c, and
Puerto, at 80c. All these are extra quality and perfectly
wholesome. They’re economical, too; as a little goes a long
e sell good bulk coffees at Joe and IT l-2c per pound,
and have some other grades, not mentioned above, that are a
little higher in price.
