Nelson,   British Columbia, Saturday,  April 13, :goi,
Eleventh  Year
COURTHOUSE
IS WANTED
Citizens  Urge the Government to MaKe an Appropriation.
Prompt Action Necessary If
Nelson Is to Remain Judicial Center.
;j'ii-,-,2
That the oity of Nelson absolutely
Buffers for want of adequate courthouse facilities and that the citi.enB
are alive to the fact was abundantly
demonstrated at the meeting of citizens at the opera bouse east night in
response to the call of Mayor Fletcher.
The attendance was represenattive of
Nelson's business and professional
insterets and voiced its sentiments in
no uncertairl terms. Tbe aetion taken
on the courthouse matter cannot fail
to impress the government if that
body ia open to the voice of the electorate. .
As the audience was assembled
Mayor Fletcher escorted Richard W.
Day to the grand piano in the orchestra pit and announced an overture.
Mr. Day rendered "The Wearin' o'
the Green," "Courthouse in the
Skies," and a lepertojre of modern
airs in splendid style, receiving the
warm plaudits of the gathering.  ,:  .
In openingbis worship briefly ��� announced the object of the meeting and
thanked the audience for turning out.
He asked for; discussion on the courthouse question, and John Elliot started the ball rolling by requeBt. Mr.
Elliot drew attention to the fact that
the citizens ef the'oity and district
were equally interested with thu legal
profession in securing proper courthouse facilities for it was from tbe
ranks of the citizens that tbe juries
were drawn, and in ��� past years jurymen had joined the judges in com-
detuning the present, building. The
building was too small, unhealthy in
an extreme degree and a disgrace to
the province. It behoved citizens to
take prompt action to impress upon
the government the necessity of affording adequate-���accommodtion. else
they might wake up some day to And
the judicial center of the Kootenays
transferred from Nelson to Rossland
which now had a 900,000 courthouse
almost completed.
S. S Taylor, K. C, W. A. Maudon-
aid, K.C., A. L. McKillop a00 . John
Houston,. M. L. A., followed along
similar, lines. The speakers unite.!
in condemning , the courthouse as
entirely,inadequate to the demands ol
the legal profession and the business
interests, of the district generally, and
in arguing -that every fair means
should be taken to impress upon the
government the necessity of immediately adopting steps to improve tbe
existing conditions,
Tbe following resolution, dealing
with the courthouse question was un-.
animously adopted:
"Moved by A. L. McKillop, seconded by Jacob Dover,
"Whereas, the courthouse in the
City of Nelson is wholly unsuitable to
the requirements of such a building,
is ill ventilatd and unsanitary.to such
a degree as to be a standing menace to
the health of those using it, and contains no decent accommodation for
judges, jurors, court officials,litigants,
witnesses, members of the legal profession, and the general public who
are called upon to transact business
there.
"And, whereas, these facts have
been in past yeaisi repeatedly noticed
and remarked upon by grand juries,
judges and   others   whose   duties  re-
?ulre them to occupy the courthouse
i-oiii time to time.
"And, whereas, in view of the large
volume of business transacted in such
courthouse and the increasing Importance of the City of Nelson and the surrounding district the present totally
inadequate building used as a courthouse is a disgrace to the piovince,
and reasonable accommodation for
the tranaction of legal affairs is urgently demanded.
"Therefore, bo it resolved, that the
provincial legislature be requested to
include in tbe estimates for the current year a sum sufficient for tbe construction of a proper courthouse In
tbe oity of Nelson."
The mayor announced that a resolution had been offered dealing with the
railroad situation in the following
terms:
"Moved by John A. KirkpatricK,
seconded by A. L. McKillop:
"Whereas, not only tbe future but
tbe present well-being of the people
whehavH all their property interests
in the mining districts of southeastern British Columbia is wholly dependant on the mining and smelting
industries in that section therefore, be
it resolved:
"First,that in our opinion the Hon.
A. 0. Blaii, minister of railways and
canals, should have the unanimous
support of the members of parliament
from British Columbia in the effort
be is making to ensure to the smelting industry of Kootenay and Yale
districts an adequate supply of coal
and coke from the Crow's Nest Mines,
the protitable working of which was
rendered possible by the completion of
the Crow's Nest Pass railway, the
greater part of the cost of which was
borne by the Dominion government.
''Second, that tbe member  for . the
Nelson riding in tbe prov,_- ��01egis-
lature is voicing public opinion in
supporting lion. D. M. Eberts, attorney general, who has given notice that
the Dunsmuir government will incorporate provisions iu tbe Crow's Nest
Pass Southern lailway that will prevent discrimination in favor of Montana smelters as against smelters in
British Columbia.
"Be it further resolved, that the
building of what is commonly known
as the Coast to Kootenay railway
should be left to private enterprise as
it is not of such importance as to warrant the province in aiding its construction by a cash subsidy, but instead subtantial aid should be given
to the construction of a railway that
would give tho farmers of the Okan-
gan lake country direct outlet to the
mining camps of Southern Yale and
Southern Kootenay, which would
place them in a position to successfully compete with the farmers of the
Col vi lie aud other farming- districts
of the state of Washington."
S. S. Taylor, K. C, rose to the resolution, remarking that as three distinct subjects were dealt with in the
form of a blanket motion,he considered much better effect would be secured by dividing the resolution into its
respective headings and passing on
each by itBelf. He offered an amendment to tbis end.
John Houston objected: strenously to
the suggestion. The matter of supporting the hands of the Hon. Mr.
Illair would appeal, he said, to every
many present wbo realized that the
future of the country depended on the
development of the mineral resources.
As to the Coast-Kootenay road he eon-
tended that to subsidize a road from
Vancouver to thej Kootenays would
be for the people of this city to go
down into their own pockets for the
purpose of cutting their own  throats.
Mr. Taylor put himself straight
with tbe audience, by pointing out
tbat his amendment did not necessarily require that he was opposed to tlie
resolution or any part of it.
The resolution was finally adopted
as it stood and the meeting adjourned.
D. M. Carley officiated as secretary
of the meeting by request.
VERANDAHS  COME DOWN
ALL   STREET     DISFIGUREMENTS
TO   BE   REMOVED     WITHIN
NEXT FEW   WEEKS.
THIS i IS   TO   BE  THE   DECISION
OF THE   BOARD   OF
WORKS.
Every verandah and sign, brard on
Baker stieet which overhangs the
street must come down within the
next few weeks. -This Is the decision
of tbe board of works at their meeting
yesterday and will be one I of the prin
cipal features of the report to be presented to the council on Monday
night. The proposed step, will doubtless Cause heart-burnings to some of
the business men, interested but that
a marked improvement in the appearance to the street will be wrought
will not be combatted, With the
overhead obstructions wiped out and
tbe streets well paved Baker street
will be thoroughly , modern. Alderman Thomas Madden-is a member of
the board of works and the change
affects him as his propertv, the Madden house, has a double-decked verandah whlcb must come down under
the committee's ruling provided the
council agrees to the clause. Alder-
miiii Madden suggested that the order
be given in such a manner that the
merchants and others would have a
reasonable time-to make the change
required. This was agreed to and
several weeks will be allowed.
The committee will also recommend
that a section of the recreation
grounds in the southwest corner be
set aside for the purpose of a pound.
This will probably be done as the
city has no available ground elsewhere. A small enclosure or corral
will bo constructed with a rough shed
and if the premises are kept clean
there is no special reason why the
pound should become a nuisance to
citizens who gather on the recreation
grounds for sports.
A number of new sidewalks and
other minor matters will be recommended. The fifteen foot walk on
the south side of Baker street will be
recommended. The fifteen foot walk
ou the south side of Baker stroet from
the Silver King hotel-to the corner of
Stanley street is to be re.laid the
walk having become somewhat the
worse for wear.
AGUINALDO'S   SUCCESSOR.
Man Who is Chosen is Now a Prisoner
in  Manila.
Paris, April 12.���Agoncillo, the
agent of Aguinaldo in Paris, received
a cablegram this morning, announo-
ing that the Filipino General Handico
had been elected as Aguinaldo's successor as commanding general of the
Filipino forces as well as dictator during the continuation of the insurrection. Sandico belongs to a distinguished family residing, ut Pandaknn near
Manila. He is a man of energy and
well educated, speaking several European languages.
Washington,April 12.���General Sandico, reported in a dispatch to Agoncillo, the agent of Aguinaldo in Paris,
to have been selcted to succeed Aguin-
al.io as commanding general of the
Filpilno forces, is a prisoner in Manila. He surrendered to tbe American
forces, April 8th.
THE ATTITUDE
OF BRITAIN
Negotiations on the Clayton-
Bulwer Treaty are Progressing.
Russia's Back-Down Satisfactory to Japan and All the >
Powers,
London, April 12.���Negotiations on
the Hay-Pauncefote abrogation of the
Clayton-Bulwer treaty are progressing
though they have not yet passed the
tentative stage. A representative of
the Associated Press has been informed tbat they are being,conducted on a
quid pio quo basis and that no other
method of abrogation would be considered by ��� the British government.
The foreign office hopes that a settlement satisfactory to both the United
States and Great Britain will be arrived at before congress is reconvened.
Great BritBin bas not yet definitely
estimated the money indemnity she
desires China to pay. A representative
of the Associated Press is informed
that the government adheres to the
belief that little can be gained by insisting upon cash payment, from
China and though the government regrets that this will possibly be a cause
for delay, it continues to instruct the
British minister to China, Sir Ernest
Satow, to try and induce the powers
to agree to a demand for further trading privileges instead of money. The
government is of the opinion that, tbe
opening up of those provinoes hitherto closed to foreign commeiao, will result in much greater benefit to the
nations concerned and to China herself than the extraction of lump sums
of money.
Regarding Japan's attitude toward
Russia opinion in Downing street Inclines to tbe belief that Japan,in ennui on with the other powers, is siitiKfiei*
with what is termed as Russia's backdown, but that Japan will continue
to keep a sbarp eye on Corea and have
no hesitation in threatening hostilities should Russia menace that country.
LEGALIZING   UNION   LABELS.
A Bill to Permit   the   Use  of   Union
Labels Wherever Desired.
Ottawa, April 11.���In the senate today, Mr. TempWman moved the second reading of a bill to amend the
Trade Mark and Design act. This
bill is very simple, being intended to
give laborunions the right to adopt
labels or designs and to put them upon any article they desire. He understood that tbe bill had twice been
passed by the commons and defeated
in the senate. He was requested to
ask the house to give the bill its second reading and allow the promoters
to appear before the committee and
give their reasons for pressing the
bill, and adducing the reasons in its
favor. ,..,,
Mr. McMillan asked what the new
arguments ware. Hon. Mr. Temple-
man pointed out that some of the
strong arguments were that the members of trade unions, which are common in every trade, were better
workmen than non-unionists. They
asked tbat they might be allowed to
distinguish articles made by union
labor by some label or mark. They
also contended that a fair day's
wage for a fair day's work was a
principle that should be recognized.
The mark would only be placed on
J,he goods with the consent of ��� the
owners. This was done to a certain
extent now. He had seen labels on
boxes of cigars. At present, however,
they had no proprietary interest .in
the design, This they asked. Feirgu?
son ana liowell opposed the bill, and
Mills supported it. It got its second
reading.

HE'S A BELIEVER IN LUCK
NEL80N   MERCHANT, DISCOVERS
HIMSELF. THE  OWNER   OF-A
VALUABLE PROEPRTY.   .
COAL AND OIL ON RANCH WHICH
HE OWNS IN WASHINGTON
STATE.
A. Ferland, the Baker street mem
ehant, is a firm believer in luck. Ten
years ago he bought a 160 acre ranch
in Snohomish county, State of Washington, and has held the land ever
since,paying taxes and realizing comparatively little on his investment.
Yesterday he woke up to the fact that
coal and oil existed on the ranch, and
now Mr. Ferland wouldn't part with
the ranch at ten times tbe figure he
would bave accepted a week since.
The Ferland ranch is located about
IS miles from Everett and a much
shorter distance from the town of Arlington. A railroad runs within half
a mile of the place. Yesterday he
received a registered letter from
Washington containing a lease to -be
signed. The document conveyed to
tbe lessee the right to work the prop-,
erty for oil and coal for fivo years,
providing that Mr. Ferland should receive 15 cents per barrel on the crude
oil secured and 10 per cent, of the net
value of coal mined within the limits
ot his place. The parties making the
offer are eastern capitalists, who are
exploiting the section of Snohomish
county in which hiB ranch is located
for these products.
On the occasion of bis last visit to
the ranch Mr, Ferland was shown
samples of coal mined across the river
from his place. A neighbor bad the
samples and they appeared,to be of
excellent quality. The seam from
which1 the simples were taken had
beon discovered live years previously
by a couple of men who did not have
the funda to carry the proposition to a
producing stage and wbo had been
compelled to abandon the! Search for
the black diamonds. At that time Mr.
Ferland did not, imagine, that coal or
oil would ever be located on-bis lauch
and was agreeably surprised to find
that the ranch which he bad regarded
as useful for agricultural, purposes
only was likely to prove a valuable
asset. He will not close with the
offer contained in the letter to hand
yesterday but will go into the matter
further to be sure that the proposition
iB advantageous  from his standpoint.

(SPECIAL TO THE MINER.)
Cumberland, B. C, April 12.���The
Cumberland mine inquest was continued tbis morning when Inspector
Thomas Morgan and Manager Matthews gave evidence as to conditons
existing before and after the accident.
Inspector Morgan was strongly of
opinion that the explosion first occurred in the stall worked hy Sned-
den. He thought possibly a shot had
been fired before the men's breakfast
time and had by some unaccountable
means disarranged the ventilation so
that when after an hour's time the
Chinamen went back to the workings,
gas bad collected and was fired.
Speaking generally he said the mine
was splendidly managed and properly
worked and as to care and ventilation,
there was nothing more to be desired.
He had inspected the mine every
month since it was opened aud the
law was being obeyed in every particular. His opinion as to the cause of
tlie accident was based on personal
examination and while not wedded to
it, was satisfied of its correctness.
Manager Matthews did not agree
with-the inspeotor. He believed the
explosion occurred in Smith's stall but
agreed it was only a matter of opinion which further investigation to be
made during the afternoon might confirm or controvert,. He described the
precautions taken to avoid accidents
and explained the working of the ventilation fans and air shafts. In his
opinion, the section of the mine where-
the explosion occurred was as safe as
any place could be, there being only
11 men working there while the Coal
Mines Regulation act allowed 70, so
that there was a very wide safety
margin of air.
The inquest adjourned shortly after
one o'clock until seven this evening
to allow the further examination ef
the mine to be concluded.
The evidenec of Wm. Royo was
that he had been engaged in* No. 0
shaft for five shifts last winter. A
short time before the accident he quit
because No. u was gassy. After a
shot gas would ignite and give trouble
in extinguishing. Though he was
never burned during that time,he was
slightly burned last year when working in the incline. A little gas lay
against tho roof and was fired, scorching his hair a little though nothing
to speak of. He considered the mine
was saferjthen than when he worked
there tbis year. No one to his knowledge said the mine was unsafe. No
discussion took place among the miners regarding the safety of the mint-.
Walker one day told him that he
would not have come back to work
had be been there the day previous.
Sometimes when blasts were fired
above his place he was scared. Roye's
son worked in the same mine. He
did not want the boy to work there as
he thought it was unsafe. Tlie mine
was well ventilated, none better. The
son is now working in No. 4 slope.
Roye hail worked in coal mines about.
f>l years and understood how to work
coal. No. 5 was pretty gassy. He
thought was worse than any lie bad
been in. The ventilation was good,
however. In his opinion no powder
or naked lights should_have beea used
there. Overman Walker was a good
man for the company. Ho could not
say anthlng about Walker's qualifications. Flreboss Johnston, he would
trust himself with anywhere. Manager Matthews understands his business too. Hove believed explosions
will happen unless they work the
mine differently. His place was dry
but not dusty. So far as dust is concerned he thinks it was all right.
Cross examined, Roye said, Pooley
worked in No. 6 three months during
the previous year and did not find so
much gas then. He did not complain
to Mr. Matthews about gas.

The Nelson Miner
Till; AGITATOR EVIL.
Such Incidents as that which recently occurred at Rossland   serve  to   direct attention anew to   the  great evil
wrought by Ihe  professional   agitator
in  an   Industrial   community.   Nine
times out of ten lie is  responsible   for
the occurrence of  strikes;   and   those
engaged In large  business enterprise.
and all who have the  true interests of
the country at heart aru just now giving consideration as  to  what means
to adopt   i"  abate the agitator   evil.
An investigation   into   what occuried
111 Rossland  recently  has resulted  in
the obtaining of  Information which
hhows very clearly tli.it the professional agitator was   responsible for creating a situation which   might have de*
velopeil a conflict bringing ruin   upon
a very Important seotlou of the country.   A representative of the Roesland
Miner   interviewed a   number of gentlemen in charge of tho principal mines
in the camp   regarding the threatened
trouble    which   has    so     fortunately
been averted.    Mr. Kirby, manager of
the War Eagle and Centre Star mines,
said that the occurrences  of the   past
week certainly presented a   vivid   object lesson ou the   peril   to   which   a
prosperous community of  seven    or
eight thousand people can   be subjected by a  few   irresponsible   agitators.
For   the   past leu days Rossland   has
been   face   to   face with   a  calamity
whicli would menu suffering ton number of Innocent and helpless people
and ruin   to  many.    It   is  a strange
commentary  on human affaiis  when
eight thousand people who, if   polled,
would  deelure   by  an   overwhelming
majority that they want nothing   but
peace and the   steady   growth   of   in-
daistry to tind   themselves    under   the
tyranny of a little   group   of   half   a
dozen men who coolly decide for their
own ends to wreck the   affairs of  the
entire population.    Such is   the   ominous power exerted by the little circle
that this mass of people with all their
property   and   other    Interests,     find
themselves powerless to resist and are
compelled to meekly   bow   their necks
to its autocratic will.   Look at the situation.    After one year of   disastrous
Struggle   throughout   the    Kootenays
and au   impending   conflict   in   Kossland, the mere prospect of which prostrated the town, peace was fortunately restored and for   a   year all   hands
bave heen   trying   to repaii the damage.    The   mines   have   been    struggling   under   their   accumulation   of
burden trying   to   find some   way   of
making   a   profit    without    reducing
wages,    Miners   and merchants  have
been gradually   recovering   from   the
debts incurred a year   ago.    On every
hand   from tbe men   at work is heard
the earnest wish that there may be no
more   trouble.    In   every body of employees there arc uion with grievances.
Imaginary or   real, but no   sane   men
think of'resairting to the despeiate expedient of a  labor   war  except   upon
issues  of   the most   ntal   Importance
and conditions   which   are   unendurable.    As a matter of fact, nothing of
the kind exists here.    There is   not a
man iu Kossland who   does   not know-
in his heart that there are   no   grievances worth the breath   wasted   upon
they.    The overwhelming   majority of
the   1,200   men    now   employed   upon
this bill bave good   sense and are opposed to a strike and during   tho past
week have been in a   state of   despair
and discouragement over a prospect of
a prolonged struggle,   but    they  say
"What  can    we    do?   To   open   our
mouths In opposition to the rabid element means being branded as   traitoi
nnd scab, and persecuted whoreVei we
go."    Hence we have hud   to   witness
the   spectacle   ot   a   town   and   1,400
working people  of  whom   about  BOO
lire claimed to   belong   to   the   uuion
endangered by a little group of wreckers wha> are determined by any aud all
methods    to   Invent     the    necessary
grievances and force  a strike.   "The
total   result   of   the efforts   of   these
men," said   Mr. Kirby, "is   that,   as
every one now knows.  3H.I   votes were
counted   out   of   a   possible   tiOO���27'
were in favoi   of   a strike and 11'-' op
posed.    By   the   constitution   of   tbe
Miuurs' Union, us I am   Informed,   a
strike of a local union   requires a   se
cret ballot majority of three-fourths of
its resident members in   good  standing. This is not three-lourtlis of those
voting but   three-fourthB of   the total
membership.    If   the union, as claim
ed. has ut present 000 members in good
standing,  IJU   votes   would be   necessary for a strike.    As a matter of fact
there were but .'77 patriots who wanted to die  for  liberty;   say 17.<   votes
short   of    the     necessary     majority.
Arithmetical facts, however,  are   trilling matters for the   strategists  who
Constitute the returning   board.    The
pressure   must still be maintained   so
that a few   weeks   more   of   vigorous
rwtllpg   may   scare   up a new lot ot
grievances and Improve the vote next
time. So it seems to have been decided to say as little as possible about
figures and to issue a vague declaration thut the ballot was within twelve
votes of a [majority. The question
now arises what if the -.000 inhabitants of Rossland should suadenly get
tbe idea iu their heads thut it is not
necessary   to   tremble   before   liulf   a
do/en fire-eaters? What if the bo.
unlon members should take a notion
to run the uiiiiin or themselves ami
for their general good Instead of in
Ihe interest of a few agitators'.' Such
tilings have happened. If lam correctly Informed a novel and interesting method of taikug a secret ballot
has heen Introduced into the Rossland
union. I have heard of empty cigar
boxes being put to all maiiiiur of uses,
but I have never before heard of
their being used as ballot boxes to
decide the fate of a community, We
treat these things a little more seriously in municipal and parliamentary
elections. A ballot box is usually a
deep receptacle und is locked before
being used. It is also carefully watch
ed by at least three men who are selected to represent the different interests and opinions concerned. I do
not understand either that it is the
usual custom where voting is done bv
ballot to leave the scrutiny and culling off to one man or to destroy, the
ballots Immediately after tbe vote is
counted; but one lentils a great deal iu
this  quickly advancing age "

Yes, August Flower still has the largest sale of any medicine in tbe civilized world. Your mothers and grandmothers never thought of using any
thing else for Indigestion or iiiiious-

They used August Flower ti. clean out

The board of trade acted very prop-

NKW   MUSIC.
An inspiring- imircli song lias recently been issueil. with the title of
''When They Piny '(lot! Save the
King.' " The song is just as intei-
esting as its title, for it is bused on
the fact that "America" anil "Hod
.Save the King" are sung to the same
melody.
"Every Darkey Hail a Raglan On" is
the title ot a oonvulslngly funny coon
song which Is the reigning lilt in
New York theatres. The odd Idea of
the song nialies it very popular.
" 'Tin All 1 Ask" is one of those
bentiful semi popular love songs by
Otto Ileln.munn, th- composer of
"Sometimes, Dear 'Ileait." Every
singer should have it in his repertoire.
The quaintest song of the season is
"Jane, Jane, alane," Heelantl and
Hull's new waltz song. Dainty words
and dainty melody make it a charming number.
Charles Shackford, the composer
spoken of as "enshrined in the hearts
of all music lovers," has a beautiful
new ballad entitled "Just at the
Turn of the Tide," a story of love of
surpassing loveliness.
The above publications are issued
this month by Jos. W. Stern A Co.,
who are also agents for the celebrated
S. S. Stewart Banjos and the (Jeorge
liauer Mandolins and (Initars. They
will lie pleased to send their illustrated catalogue free, upon application to
their main oflices, 34 E. 21st Street,

MR. WHYTE'S VIEWS-
Williaai Whyte, manager of the C.
P. R. lines west of Fort William, was
interviewed on his return from the
Kootenays and after describing tbe
smelting industry in the Boundary
said : "There is great need for a lead
refinery in tins district to enable the
working of the ore into the manufactured article used in paint. This would
not only 611 the home consumption,
but would be used to compete with
other countries, in China and Japan,
where lead in tea packages is now
very largely requred."

ASSATKRS' EXAMS���
The second examination for proficiency in the art of assaying under the
allspices of the provincial mines department, will be held here next week
commencing on Monday. After this
date assayiTs who have not taken the
required examinations and secured the
certificates of efficiency issued by tlie
province, will, if not otherwise exempt, be unable to practice. The tests
will be conducted at W. P. Teetzel A
06.'s laboratory in the Macdonald
block. II. Carmichacl. provincial as-
K.ivir. will he the presiding examiner.
Ho is to be assisted by A. L. McKillop and II. Harris, of this city, and
Cuthbcrt Welsh of the Trail smelter.

CENSUS CONFERENCE���
A conference of census commissioners for districts cast of the Columbia
river will be held here today. Among
those who will be present are A. Bernard Buckworth, coinms-ioner Nelson
district; J-.il, Langley.Fort Steele district; A. li. Docksteader, Slocan district, and Thomas Parker, Kossland
district. Some of the commissioners
are meeting with difficulties in connection with the quarantine regulations in force at some points. C. M.
Edwards, an enumerator in Mr. Lang-
ley's district, is now in quarantine
near Cranbrook, and it is likely that
the enumerator from this section who
takes the Kitchener census will meet
with a similar fate on his arrival
there.
GROWING CHILDREN-
Tho Period  When the Nervous Activity
Is at Its Greatest.
(The Home Doctor.)
" against the practice of giving tea
and coffee to children, we cannot
speak too strongly. Childhood is tho
period when tbo nervous activity is
at its greatest. The brain is ever
busy receiving new impressions. Reflex action, co-ordination of muscles,
and the special senses are all under
a special course of training. The
nervous system is pushed to its utmost capacity, and long is the list of
victims that follow its overstimulation. In the little people nothing
but harm can come from the use of
such cerebral stimulants as tea or
coffee. Had, then, as this practice is,
let us as physicians be aggressive in
its prohibition.
Do not be satisfied by answering
'No,' when asked as to its use. but let
us teach the families with whom we
come in contact that such practico is
evil. We speak emphatically, because not only among the Door and
uneducated, but among the rich, who
should know better, this practice is
marvellously prevalent." Children
like a warm beverage for breakfast
and it is well for them to have it if
the drink is a food and not a drug.
Postum Food Coffee is made to supply
a rich nourishing liquid food with
a crisp .offce tuste, for those who tan
not and should not use coffee. Analysis shows it to contain about fourteen
per.cent, of muscle forming elements
and 80.11 per cent of energy and fat
producing elemonts which go to nourish and sustain the delicate nerve centers throughout the body and from
which the vital energy proceeds.
The supreme importance of proper
food in place of drugs is not generally understood, but tbe bucccbs of
child or adult depends largely upon
proper sustenance for the body. Children who depend upon the intelligence
of their elders to furnish them with
good food deserve onr most careful attention and thought upon this subject.
