A THAN ITS
(MAKES WEAK I
AFTER an anxiouc, fretful
day, you need something
which shall fit your tired
body as a well worn slipper lita a
tired foot. It must be something
more than food or drink. If you
want to taste Nirvana and forget
all your tire and fatigue, take a
cup of one of Chase & Sanborn's
"Original Package" teas. These
are the leaves which the natives
themselves drink with all their
vigor imprisoned. It's a very
diil'erent drink from ordinary tea.
