•t' what the coffee trade think of the harmfulness of the coffee-drug. caffeine.
> shown in their efforts to get rid ot it—to get a coffee that doesn't contain
When they do succeed in getting rid of some of the caffeine drug-content,
tin result is a weak, "clover-tea" decoction that few appreciate.
But after all their efforts to rid coffee of part of its caffeine, how about
tiie other coffee-drug, "tanniu"—about 'J 2-5 grains to every cup of coffee?
Tannin is the drug used to tan hides with. Do you know what it does to
vuur stomach? Probably not. Here i< what good authorities say about it: —
"Tannic a-id in coffee interferes with digestion."
' The caffeine and theine in coffee and tea are cerebral
stimulants, and the tannic a- id is an astringent, affecting
• specially the muscular fibers of the intestinal walls."
"Tannic acid is universally condemned by all authorities as
a hindrance to digestion and health."
Why keep on running the risk of s.-rioys interference with health. Why
not quit a table beverage that bears in its train a lot of trouble like nervous
ness. headache, heart, stomach, bowel disturbance, insomnia, etc.
Thousands, suffering from these i Is. find it easy to quit coffee when they
have at hand the delicious, nourishing beverage—
— a pure food-driDk.
Made from prime wheat (roasted 1 ke coffee) and a bit of wholesome mo
lasses, it contains no caffeine, tannin o • any other drug or harmful substance.

Greensburg. Pa.. Oct. 23.—Some ouo
yesterday sent to Dr. Brumbaugh, Re
publican candidate for Governor, a
series of questions while he was on the
platform at Latrobe. He answered them
without pause or hesitation, evidently
to the satisfaction of his cheering au
dience. Pr. Brumbaugh's direct state
ment that he had no agreement, ex
pressed or implied, with the liquor in
terests. organized or unorganized, was
especially marked by applause.
In the allotted time Dr. Brumbaugh
could only reaffirm the pledges of his
platform, which brought to him what
he termed the "credentials of 253,000
of his fellow -citizens."
"When 1 am chosen Governor," he
said. "I will be Governor and nobody
else. 1 shall earn the salary that is
paid to me. and I shall insyst upon and
sec to it that every man employed bv
the State must earn his salary by hon
est work. If be doesn't earn it. I'll fire
him. No power or influence will be
strong enough to keep an unworthy
man in his job a single day."
Brumbaugh at Greensburg
In his Greensburg speech Pr. Brum
baugh said in part:
"1 am absolutely convinced that this
great State of Pennsylvania should see
to it that laws are enacted that are as
humane and benetieient and far-reach
ing in their provision for the care of
our working people as the wisdom of
the Commonwealth can produce. This
includes the whole program of social
service and civic welfare.
j '*l believe iu a good, sane, sensible
and effective workiugmeii's compensa
; tion act. 1 regret that the last Legis
-1 lature failed to eiiact such a law, and I
! shall insist "that the incoming Legis
lature shall speedily crystallize the
; wish of the people in this matter into
the law of the Commonwealth, and if
i elected Governor 1 shall assuredly sign
; such an act.
"Our liability act is not sufficiently
1 far-ieaching iu its provisions as to guar-
I antee to the widows and orphans of
j tiiosi ,who are fatally injured iu our
| industries the protection which the cor
porate power of the State should guar
antee to them. It may be that by tax
ing these corporations or iu some other
! fair and equitable manner the money
may be put into the hands of the Com
'monwealth itself and paid by the Com
monwealth directly to those who by law
are entitled to receive it. It ought to
! be possible for a man toiling in Penn
sylvania to know that if by unavoid
-1 able accident he should lose his life in
' his service to his family in earning for
'hem bread, that they because ot his
sacrifice shall never want for bread.
"Pennsylvania can point with pride
I to her already splendidly organized de
' part men ts of health, and we must go
! beyond this, and with all forms of pre
ventive aud precautionary measures,
safeguard the strength and promote the
; earning capacity and the happiness of
our people who toil with their hands.
Praises Health- Department
"The people of this Commonwealth
should be permitted iu each country to
>ettle for themselves the question
whether or not licenses for the sale of
intoxicating liquors shall be granted in
the country. This in my judgment is a
; duty which the Legislature aud the
Executive alike owe to the [>eople of
Pennsylvania, and in my primary plat
form, as well as before the .pjople in
' this campaign, 1 have steadily stood,
and shail continue to for this
| fonn of local option. It is a part ot'
the propoganda for the safeguarding
of the health and the strength of our
■ people, and is the natural outgrowth of
! the teaching in our schools.
I "Pennsylvania can well rejoice in
her splendid record of support to our
charitable institutions; but the method
of distributing the money is both un
businesslike and unscientific. Wc give
enough but we do not give it wisely.
This money should be distributed in a
purely nonpartisan way, on such a
basis as to promote the largest, pos
sible good and relieve the greatest
amount of suffering. No hand should
ever reach into the sources of support
for the helpless and needy of the com
uiouwealth or divert from them any
relief or assistance which the good
'heart of the commonwealth always has
generously provided for. Under wise
j supervision the State has an absolute
I right to know that its money is ac-
I eomplishing the thing which the people
intended it should accomplish,

1 and the responsibility of the office of

| of purpose and solemn devotion to duty
! to serve in an honest and capable way
j the best interests of all pur people. My

Governor, accompanied Mr. Palmer in
his tour of the city and in addition 5
to the meeting at which Mr. Palmer |
spoke, addressed a crowd of workmen

asserted that if Dr. Brumbaugh were (

sible for him to escape from the con- j
trol of the Penrose supporters.
Emphasis was placed upon legisla- j

by Mr. Palmer in his address at noon
yesterday at the Cramp shipyards. A
crowd of more than 500 men pressed
closely about the automobile from
which the Democratic candidate spoke.,

of the company, were among his audi-1

THE "RECORD" AND THE WAR
Philadelphia Newspaper Doesn't Let
Europe Crowd Out Other News
About three-quarters of the newspa
pers of the eountiv seem to be laboring
under the impression of late that there j
is little of consequence going 011 any- *
where in the world but the European j
war. A notable exception is the Phila
delphia "Record,'' whose editors pre- i
serve a just sense of proportion iu the j
presentation of news, as usual. The j
war is getting all the attention it de
serves in the ''Record" in the shape
of full and satisfying accounts from all \
the foreign sources, but it is not al- j
lowed to overshadow reports of other
events, at home and abroad, in which '
well-balanced newspaper readers are in
terested. Freedom from sensationalism
has served the Philadelphia "Record"
well in this war situation.
"Record" popularity is perhaps ac
counted for by "Record" versatility.'
The Philadelphia "Record" covers ev
ery phase of human activity in its var- j
ied departments, and stands in the good
graces of every member of the family..
It is fair, clean, reliable, bright and i
entertaining. It is a level-headed all- !
around newspaper for intelligent people 1
who want trustworthy news of all hap
penings worth reading about, sifrved in
attractive form. Adv.
Russian terrorists who have been in
the habit of digging tunnels for the i
purpose of blowing up the czar will j
wonder why they never thought of
climbing over the fence of the winter
palace and getting in through a cellar

are likely to get stung.

Visitor From Canton, China
A. Maxwell Paget, of Canton, China,
arrived in the city yesterday to spend
some time with friends in this city and
badly defeated at Cohlentz bv the Cos
sacks. After the battle he was sur
rounded by enemies and would have
lost his life had he not been saved bv
the presence of mind of one of his sol
diers, Corporal Spohn.
Realizing that Napoleon's only
chance for life was in getting off the
battlefield unrecognized, the corporal
begged the Emperor to change hats and
horses with him. The change was made
ere the smoke of battle had cleared
away and Napoleon, with his corporal's
hat and mounted on a poor steed, rode
away unnoticed, the Cossacks crowding
around the corporal. Taking him pris
oner. they led him in triumph to the
Russian general. There the mistake
was soon discovered, and the corporal's
brave act cost him his life.
According to the Cohlentz legend,
Napoleon, in remembrance of Spohn's
self-sacritice, always after this pre
ferred a corporal's uniform to any oth
er and wore it so often that his men
came to speak of hini familiarv as '• l.e
