nate with a' breaking down of the
digestion, a weak stomach weakens
and impoverishes the system, mak
ing it easy for disease to gain a foot

kidney disease, liver trouble or a
weak heart and nervous system as
long as the digestion is good and

plenty of wholesome food.

book describes, the sympttfms and
causes and points the way to a cure

tation, constipation and similar
symptoms to some other cause than

the right track and the heart trouble,

the cause and removal of indigestion
and its accompanying annoyances..

be a candidate against James E.
Martine, the primary choice. Smith,
through his personal followers, as
sured' Wilson before election that his
'health' would not permit him to he
come a candidate for his old place in
the senate. After election he sent
word to Wilson that he wanted the
job. Wilson then says: 'The issue
is plain. If Mr. Smith Is sent back
to the United States senate, the dem
ocratic party and the state Itself is
once more delivered Into the hands
of the very influences from which It

THE FIRST BLECTRIO MGHTS
The usual understanding of the
primal application of electricity as an
Illumlnant is an association of the
names of Brush and Edison as the
first to apply the forces of electricity
to "produce light. In a sense this
Idea is correct, but the first experi
mental philosopher to discover that
electric light could be produced by a
dry battery was Sir- Humphrey Davy,
who in 1810 exhibited a light three
inches long, between carbon, points,
before the Royal Society of London.-
But no commercial value was at-v
tached tethe use of electricity as an
ilhiminant until more than half' &
century later. The Centennial . ex- y
hibition, held in Philadelphia in
187G, really marks the era of our
present form of electric light; though
electric lights had been in use i
abroad prior to that time. The ex
hibition of models and practical dem
onstrations of -electric lights at Phil
adelphia in 187-0 attracted the atten-. '
tion of scientists and capitalists in
this country, and the first incandes
cent: lamps -and the first arc system
were. put to practical use In a small
way in 1878. The Brush arc light
gained favor in the beginning as the
most "adaptable for street lighting,,
and Cleveland, Ohio, the home cf
Charles Francis Brush, .the inventor, .
was the Jnjtial .American city tof '
adopt the arc system for street -lighting.
Since 1878, both the Brush arc'
system and the Edison incandescent'
system have developed. Marc M.
