Many babies have been launched
Into life with constitutions weakened
by disease taken in with their moth-
ers’ milk. Mothers cannot be too care-
ful as to the food they use while nurs-
ing their babes.
The experience of a Kansas City
mother is a case in point;
“1 was a great coffee drinker from a
child, and thought I could uot do with-
out it. But 1 found at last it was do-
ing me harm, For years I had been
troubled with dizziness, spots before
my eyes and pain in my heart, to
which was added, two years later, a
chronic sour stomach.
"The baby was born 7 months ago,
and almost from the beginning, it, too,
suffered from sour stomach. She was
taking it from me!
“In my distress I consulted a friend
of more experience and she told me
to quit coffee, that coffee did not
make good milk. I have since ascer-
tained that it really dries up the milk.
“So, I quit coffee and tried tea and
at last cocoa. But they did not agree
with me. Then I turned to Postum
with the happiest results. It proved
to be the very thing I needed. It not
only agreed perfectly with baby and
myself, but it increased the flow of
“My husband then quit coffee and
used Postum and quickly got well of
the dyspepsia with which he had been
troubled. I no longer suffer from the
dizziness, blind spells, pain in my
heart or sour stomach.
“Now we all drink Postum from my
husband to my seven months’ old
baby. It. has proved to be the best
hot drink we have ever used. We
wou’d not give up Postum for the best
coffee we ever drank." Name given
by Postum Co., Battle Creek, Mich.

dress I had two years ago?”
“O, yes, you remember it, John. The

gown put on this one?”

it would have cost $25. Don’t you

"Think what it means to you when 1

body must get the impression that you
are able to give me a much larger al- j
lowance than you do for clothes. It j
gives the Impression that you are
prosperous. Can't you see what an
advantage it is to have people get
such an idea?”
‘Tve never noticed it.”
“O, pshaw! One might as well talk 1
to a stick as to you!”
Safest to Fly High.
That it is safer for an airman to
fly high than comparatively near the
ground is indicated by meteorological
tests carried out on behalf of the
British air office at Teddington. A
kite with a special recording appara-
tus has been sent up to various
heights, and it has been shown that
on a gusty day sudden fluctuations in
the pressure of the wind—which are
an airman’s peril—diminish percept-
ibly as a kite ascends. What airmen
have discovered when in flight is that
dangerous gusts sweep over woods
and hills or through valleys. For this
reason when passing across country
they seek to maintain an altitude of
at least 7,000 feet.
Teacher’s Aim in Life.
To help a child to become unselfish,
self-reliant, kind, thoughtful, consid-
erate, honest and independent; to
train to habits of usefulness; to pro-
mote purity of thought and life; to
have even some small part in awaken-
ing loftier purposes and holier aspi
rations; to arouse in the minds of
boys and girls an honest and sincere
hope to be able to some extent to
make happier the school, the home,
the community, the state, the nation,
and the world—should bo'the greatest
ambition of every teacher.—Richard G
Surely the Limit.
A Kankas editor says he thinks this
is the best story he has seen in print

his congregation was made up of tight-
wads. “They‘are so stingy,” he said,
"that when I ask them to sing ‘Old
Hundred,’ they sing “The Ninety and
