They came from labor organizations,
leaders of organized labor, intimate
friends and unknown admirers. Most
of them were from Chicago, the scene
of most of his professional activities
for a quarter , of a century.
Mr. Darrow's attorneys expressed
incredulity when informed that there
would be a trial on the Bain indict-

evidence in the Bain case had been
submitted in the trial just ended.
Two o'clock has been fixed for the

that he would make no plans for the

hoarse person was endeavoring to sell,
in brazen defiance of the pure food

that they, too, were grumbling. It

"Five years ago," writes a doctor
"I commenced to use Postum in my
own family instead of coffee." (It's
a well-known fact that tea is Just as
injurious as coffee because it contains
caffeine, the same drug found in cof-
fee.) "I was so well pleased with the
results that I had two grocers place
it in stock, guaranteeing its sale.
"I then commenced to recommend it
to my patients in place of coffee, as a
nutritious beverage. The consequence
Is, every store in town is now selling
It, as it has become a household ne-
cessity in many homes.
"I'm sure I prescribe Postum as oft-
en as any one remedy in the Materia
Medica—in almost every case of indi-
gestion and nervousness I treat, and
with the best results.
"When I once introduce It into a
fnmily, it is quite sure to remain. I
shall continue to use it and prescribe
it in families where I practice.
"In convalescence from pneumonia,
typhoid fever and other cases I give
it as a liquid, easily absorbed diet.
