Why is POSTUM
People are waking up to the harmful effects ot the powerful drug caffeine—in coffee,
which poisons the system, often resulting in nervouoness, heart flutter, headache, bilhousness
and many other ills and discomforts.
The pure food-drink, Postum, is absolule'y drug-free— made only of the choicest
wheat and a bit of wholesome molasses. It contains no caffeine or other harmful elements,
If you doubt that coffee hurts you, a sure test is to leave it off for 10 days and use
Postum. It's an easy change, too, for Postum tastes much like the mild, high grade Javas.
As the coffee-drug is eliminated from your system, your own feelings will suggest I ostum
and better health.
PiiKtum comes in two forms: Regular Postum— must boiled, Hie ami * ■ packages;
Instant Postum—-soluble form, made in the with hot watu Instantly, 30c ami 60c tins.
Bot h kinds are equally delicious, and the cost per cup is about t(je same. * • •
