the various kinds prescribed by the
doctor produced most acute pain.

delight when I found that I could eat
It with a relish and without the slight-
"When the doctor heard of It he told
me to take Beveral small portions each
day, because he feared I would grow
tired of It as I had of all other food.
"But to his surprise, (and that of
everybody else), 1 did not tire of
Grape-Nuts, and became better day by
day, till, after some weeks, my stom-
ach entirely recovered and I was able
to eat anything my appetite craved.
"My nerves, which had become so
weakened that I feared I would be-
come Insane, were also restored by
