The Fight Agalnat Tuberculosis.
Interest In the anti-tuberculosis cam-
paign now being waged throughout the
United States Is evidenced by the fact
that In the year 1909 163 new anti-tu-
berculosis associations were formed,
133 tuberculosis sanatoria and hospit-
als were established, and 91 tubercu-
losis dispensaries were opened. Com
pared with previous years, this is the
best record thus far made In the fight
against consumption In this country.
During the year 1909, 43 more asso-
ciations for tbe prevention of tubercu
losls were formed than during the pre
vloua 12 months, and 62 more hospitals
and sanatoria were established. On
January 1, 1910, there were In the Unl
ted States 394 anti-tuberculosis associ-
ations, 386 hospitals and tuberculosis
sanatoria and 265 special tuberculosis

Head Bookkeeper Must be Reliable.
The chief bookkeeper In a large busi-
ness house in one of our great West-
ern cities speaks of the harm coSee
did for htm:
"My wife and I drank our flrst cup
ot Postum a little over two years ago.
and wc have used It ever since, to the
entire exclusion of tea and coffee. It
happened In this way:
"About three and a half years ago
I had an attack of pneumonia, which
left a memento In the shape of dyspep-
sia, or rather, to speak more correctly,
neuralgia o' the Btomach. My 'cup of
cheer' bad always been coffee or tea,
but 1 became convinced, after a time,
that they aggravated my stomach trou-
ble. T happened to mention the mat-
ter to my grocer one day and he sug-
gested that I give Postum a trial.
I "Next day It came, but the cook made
the mistake of not boiling It sufficient-
ly, and we did not like it much. This
was, however, soon remedied, and now
we like it so much that we will never
change back. Postum, being a food
beverage instead of a drug, has been
the means of curing my stomach trou-
ble, I verily believe, for 1 am a well
man today and have used no other
"My work as chief bookkeeper in our
Co.'s branch house here Is of a very
confining nature. During my coffee-
drinking days I was subject to nerv-
ousness and 'the blues' In addition to
my alck spells. These have left me
alnce I began using Postum and I can
conscientiously recommend It to those
whose work confines them to long
hours of severe mental exertion."
