himself heading the dash for shelter."

A Great Physiologist
Onco Said the Way to Keep tho
Stomach Healthy is to
But Ho Did Not Tell How to Mako
The muscles of the body can be de
veloped by exercise unll their
strength has increased manifold, and
a proper, amount of training each day
will accomplish this result, but it is
somewhat doubtful whether you can
increase the digestive powers of the
stomach by eating indigestible food
in order to force it to work.
Nature has furnished us all with a
perfect set of organs, and if they are
not abused they will attend to the
business required of them. They
need no abnormal strength.
There is a limit to the weieht a
man can lift, and there is also a
limit to what the stomach can do.
The cause of dyspepsia, indiges
tion and many affiliated diseases is
that the stomach has been exercised
too much and it is tired or worn out.
Not exercise but rest is what it needs.
To take something Into the stomr
ach that will relieve it from its work
for a short time something to digest
the food will givB it a rest and al
low it time to regain its strength.
The proper aid to the digestive or
gans is. Stuart's Dyspepsia Tablets,
which cure dyspepsia, indigestion, gas
on the stomach and bowels, heart
burn, palpitation of the heart, and
all stomach diseases.
Rest and invigoration is what tho
stomach gets when you use Stuart's
Dyspepsia Tablets, for one grain of
the active principle in them is suffi
cient to digest 3,000 grains of food.
The Tahlets increase the flow of
gastric juice and prevent fermenta
tion, acidity and sour eructions.
Do not attempt to starve out dys
pepsia. You need all your 'strength,
The common sense method Is to di
gest the food for the stomach and
give it a rest.
Stuart's Dyspepsia Tablets do not
make the cure, but enables the or
gans to throw off unhealthy condi
tions. Perfect digestion means nerfect
health, for under these conditions
only do the different organs of the
body work right and receive the
building-up material found in pure
Stuart's Dyspepsia Tablets is a nat
ural remedy and is a . specific; for
stomach troubles. The ablest physi
cians prescribe them.
The Tablets are pleasant fo the
taste, and are composed of fruit and
vegetable extracts, golden seal and
