"Tea and Coffee
are just as harmful to children as alcohol is
to grown-ups," says Dr. Charlotte Abbey,
superintendent of the Women's Directory,
New York.
The reason why coffee and tea injure anybody is because these contain the
poisonous drug, caffeine, (from V/ 2 to 3 grains to the cup), which physicians have long
known affects the heart, stomach and liver.
Children especially, with their delicate nerves, are susceptible to the action of caffeine,
and should never be allowed to have tea or coffee or any other beverage containing drugs.
Thousands of adults have found that their headaches, narvousness, indigestion and
sleeplessness have vanished when a change was made from coffee and tea to
"There's a Reason'*
Postum contains no caffeine or any other injurious substance Made from whole wheat
and a small percent of molasses, it is a pure food-drink, having a delightful flavour and

Ten Minks Visit Poultry
Yards and Kill Chickens
Mother, Three Feet Long, and Her Little Ones Play Havoc
in Mrs. Ditch's Coops at Pen-Mar
Special to The Telegraph
Waynesboro, Pa., June 22. —For the
past several weeks Mrs. D. M. Ditch,
of the Wayside cottage, Pen-Mar, Md.,
has been missing young chickens from
her coops almost nightly and could
not fathom the cause of the removal
of the chickens, as the door of the
house that surrounded the coops did
not bear any marks of having been
tampered with by chicken thieves.
Recently the coops ere again vis
ited and when Mrs. Ditch opened up
the chicken house Sunday morning she
found thirty-seven of her chickens,
about the size of partridges, lying in
a heap in the pen.
She knew then that a mink was re
sponsible for the deaths of the chick
ens, as their neck's had been chewed
up, showing that the mink killed the
fowls by grasping their necks in his
mouth and then sucking the blood
from their bodies. This operation the
animal had performed on all of them.
Mrs. Ditch also discovered that the
mink had gained entrance to the place
by tunneling from the outside and
coming tip through the dirt floor.
Mrs. Ditch thought she would pre
vent further onslaught upon the chick

Special to The Telegraph
Marietta, Pa., June 22. —On Satur
day the first rattlesnake seen ,in this
section for fiearly a- half century was
dispatched by George Bowers after the
reptile had put up an ugly fight and
made an attempt to strike him. The
reptile was killed in the pigeon fly of
Harry Dugan, where he had gone to
get a drink from the fountain, and
presumably this has been the cause of
Mr. Dugan's pigeons being badly
frightened for some time. The length
of the snake is 25 inches and it is
3 feet inches in thickness around the
body. It is of a southern variety and
may have reached this section in a

ens by having a galvanized roof floor
ing placed in the hennery. This
seemed of no avail, as Sunday night
the mink came back to the premises
and succeded in working a hole
through the floor and killed twenty
more of Mrs. Ditch's chickens in the
same manner as before.
Yesterday morning Fred Gallion,
superintendent of the Rouzerville
Water Company, which furnishes
water to the cottages of Pen-Mar dur
ing the summer, saw the mink that
killed Mrs. Ditch's chickens near her
premises. It was going in the direc
tion of its haunts in a huge rock near
the reservoir of the water company.
With the animal were nine little minks,
the mother and her family, all of
which had spent the night feasting off
Mrs. Ditch's chickens, and were then
homeward bound.
Mr. Gallion said he was going to
annihilate Mrs. Mink and her family
to-morrow by the use of dynamite,
which he was going to place in the
opening of the rocks that led to the
minks' abode and set it off. He said
the mink was as fine a specimen as he
ever saw and would measure at least
three feet in length.
