Do You Enjoy Your Meals?
One of the Most Important Questions
to Consider in the Search for
Happiness and Health
The burning question, to you, is,
"Are you getting out of life all the
pleasure and the health you are en
titled to?" If not, why not?
No matter whether every organ
and member of your body is in a
sound state of health and strength,
if your stomach is in any way dis
ordered, you are not going to be
"yourself." You are going to be a
worried, out-of-sorts, nervous or sul
len individual, whose actions will
reflect your condition inside, and peo
ple will naturally avoid you.
The world wants to smile .and be
cheerful, and unless you are cheerful
and smile, at least, occasionally, you
will have few friends, fewer opportu
nities, no success, and you will go
down in defeat defeated by dyspep
sia and a bad stomach.
A good and thorough digestion has
a quick, wonderful reaction upon the
brain. You must have noticed it
many times, for the brain and stom
ach are as intimately connected as a
needle and its thread, one can hardly
be used to advantage without the
other. If your stomach is slow and
lazy in digesting your food, it will
produce at once a slow, lazy and
cloudy influence upon your brain.
Mark it! If your stomach has abso
lutely quit work, and fermentation
is poisoning your vitals as a result,
surely your brain is going to be slug
gish and correspondingly depressed.
No one need tell you that.
But why continue to suffer all the
miseries and torments that a dis
ordered stomach brings you?
If your stomach can not digest
your food, what will? Where's the
relief? Where's the cure?
Stuart's Dyspepsia Tablets are the
relief and the cure. Why? Because,
as all stomach troubles arise from in
digestion and because one ingredient
of Stuart's Dyspepsia Tablets is able
to thoroughly and completely digest
3,000 grains of any kind of food,
doesn't it stand to reason that these
little Dyspepsia Tablets are going to
digest all the food and whatever food
you put into your stomach? Science
nowadays can digest food without
having to use the Stomach for it.
And Stuart's Dyspepsia Tablets are
the result of this scientific discovery.
They digest and digest thoroughly
and well, anything and everything
So, if your stomach refuses to work
or can't work, and you suffer from
eructations,-bloat, brash, fermenca
tion, biliousness, sour stomach, heart
burn, irritation, indigestion, or dys
pepsia of whatever form, just take
one or two of Stuart's Dyspepsia Tab
lets, and see the difference. It
doesn't cost you much to prove it.
Then you can eat all you want, what
you want, whenever you want, if you
use these tablets, and you can look
the whole world in the face with a
beaming eye and you will have a
cheerful spirit, a pleasant face, a vig
orous body and a clear mind and
memory and everything will look and
taste delicious to you. That's life.

sia Tablets at any drug store on earth

enablo the banks to get control of
the bonds so that the government
can invest the 80 per cent of the
guaranty fund in two per cent bonds
and regain control.
In buying these bonds the banks
holding them shall be paid their orig
inal purchase price, provided the
bonds were bought before January 1,
1908, and providing their exact pur
chase price can be proved.
It is Mr. Fowler's idea, as em
bodied in the bill, to have the now
credit notes printed on a green back
ground, in differentation from the
yellow background of the gold notes
and white background of the silver
Mr. Fowler, chairman of the com
mittee on banking and currency, to
day made the following statement re
garding the financial situation:
"We are today with regard to our
financial and currency practices
where we were in 1896 with regard
to the standard of values, and to de
cide now to make all kinds of bonds
the basis of currency would be just
as serious and fatal a mistake as to
have adopted silver then as our
standard of value.
"The time is ripe, the circum
stances are auspicious and a care
ful investigation of all the facts and
conditions justifies the conclusion
that congress can and should so legis
late as to bring about these results:
"First A uniform banking sys
tem. "Second Uniform bank reserves
consisting of gold issue or its equiv
alent. "Third A simple and scientific
monetary system consisting of only
three forms of currency gold for
our bank reserves, bank credit notes
redeemable in gold for the larger
bills, and silver for the smaller bills
and subsidiary coins.
"Fourth A currency automatical
ly adjusting itself to the demands of
trade, never too great, never too
small, but always just adequate to
"Fifth Equal and absolute pro
tection to all depositors in national
banks by placing in the United States
treasury a guaranty fund which by
January, 1909, ought to approxi
"Sixth The establishment of cer
tain rules and regulations whereby
the financial operations of the treas
ury shall be so conducted that the
government will cease to be a dis
turbing factor in our trade and commerce."
THE CAUSE OF THE SMASHUP
The old darky was suing the rail
road company for damages. The
man contended that not being
warned by whistle or engine bell he
had started to drive his rig across
the company's track when a shunted
box car of said company crashed in
to his outfit, causing the death of the
horse, loss of the wagon and minor
injuries to himself After the prose
cution had closed its side of the case,
the company's lawyer called the old
darky to the stand and went at him.
"Mr. Lamson," he began, "your
rig was struck by the box car in full
daylight, was it not?"
"I fink dar was some clouds ova
head, suh," answered the caviling
"Never mind the clouds! And
only a few days before this accident
the railroad company had put a new
sign at that crossing?"
"Dar was a sign dar, ya-as, suh?"
"And didn't that sign say 'Stop'
Look! Listen?' "
"Now dar am de whoP accusation
ub de trouble!" declared the darky,
with animation. "If dat Stop sign
hadn't caught dis chile's eye jes' 's
ah war squar' on dat track, dar
wouldn't 'a been no smashup!" The

121 the Southwest
When "the South" typified the land of happy homes
for the favored few of great wealth only
"The South " is still the land of happy homes but they nre
homes within the reach of every man or woman who has felt
the call of the magic charm of the South.
In Missouri, Arkansas, Louisiana and Texas there is land to be
had so cheap thnt paying is not a burden.
Land so rich in productiveness that profits are always sure.
So easy of cultivation that the superintending of a farm in the
South country has proven a keen delight as well as a source of
great revenue to many an energetic woman.
Sunshine and Outdoor Life
twelve months every year, with no shut-in, snowbound season,
when all life is at a standstill.
Better health and greater home comforts are awaiting every
man or woman who will go and sec this wonderful Southwest.
