A SINGULAR STORY. [Newspaper Article] — Mortlake Dispatch — 13 June 1914

A SINGULAR STORY. There Is probably no household in the land to-day which would not con tribute its voice to the chorus of praise worthily accorded the ubiquitous aad multiforraed biscuit. Yet it is related that this popular item of diet owes Its existence to a mere chance. In 1550, when the French Cour^ journey ing hither and thither in the provinces, was unking a stay in a small Langue doe village the master-baker of the place was commanded, says a popu lar political contemporary, to supply a cake which should not only be pala table-. but which should also be a kind not procurable in any other place. The order gave the ruaster-baker food for thought; he was an ambitious man who hoped to establish a reputa tion. Therefore he cudgelled his brains day and night, and the more he thought the less he succeeded in puz izling out a new recipe. He mixed tiour. sugar and milk, and then in despair went away, seeing that nothing new could come of this mixture, and turned into the nearest inn ...

"My health was completely run down- through, want of nourishment to the system. I could take notkins Jato'ray etemauli; without retching, on one occasion I went four days without a bite of , food. My appetite was gone and I could not eat. In my sheer exhaus tion and despair I tried Dr. Morse's Indian Root Pills, and can well re member it; an early improvement was discernible, and after talcing a few doses I commenced to make rapid strides towards my old condi tion. My appetite was soon restored to its normal state, and I say Dr. Morse's Indian Root Pills achieved a positive triumph in my recovery from indigestion.
