To Those Who Would Suc
ceed in Life.
In Many Cases Are Primar
ily Due to
Or Some Form of Stomach
or Nerve Trouble.
Will Make the Stomach,
Nerves and Brain Sound
and Healthy and Will
4. few days since I received a let
ter from a young man. who states that
he is 28 years of age, and has occu
pied several important positions, but
owing to his inability to sleep he has
l)een unable to concentrate his mind
upon his work, and has consequently
been discharged on the ground of neg
lect of duty. H e goes on to say that
lie as a young man of steady habits,
but for years he has suffered from
dyspepsia, which has so affected his
nerves that he is unable to bleep, and
that it is not neglect upon his part
nor lack of interest in the business,
but simply physical weakness. H e asks
my advice in this matter.
For the benefit of a large number of
those familiarly situated, I propose to
answer this letter publicly, hoping that
it may be the means of helping many
who may be affected in this way.
Tti the first place, the stomach must
be made well before the nerves can
be made strong. The nerves must be
made strong before one can sleep well.
N o man is capable of doing his best
who is in any way troubled with in
somnia or any form of nervousness.
The greatest generals have been men
of iron nerve and Indomitable will.
They have had perfect digestion, being
able to eat well and digest all they
I t is said that Napoleon lost the bat
tle of Waterloo because of a fit of in
digestion. Grant's enormous reserve
did not know that h e had a stomach."
Abraham liincoln often said that "he
did not know that h e had a stomach."
Grover Cleveland, it is said, could
work eighteen hours a day, eat a
hearty meal a t 2 or 3 o'clock in the
morning, go to bed and sleep soundly
until 9 o'clo ck and get u p refreshed,
ready for a new day's work.
President Roosevelt is another type
of healthy manhood. Who thinks for
one moment that he would be presi
dent of the United States to-day had
he been a dyspeptic or affected with
some nervous ailment? I claim that
two-thirds of all the failures in profes
sional and business life are due to
weak and deranged stomachs.
N o business house would care to em
ploy a dyspeptic representative to sell
goods for them on the road. One-half
of the men who stand behind counters
to-day earning from $12 to $15 a week,
will never get beyond these figures, for
the reason that they are physically
weak. They lack the nerve power and
commanding strength that comes from
a good sound stomach.
N o one cares to hear a dyspeptic
preacher. N o matter how pious he
may be , he is bound to reflect his
bilious and Jaundiced condition. H e
will unconsciously inoculate his hear
ers with his melancholy feelings.
N o one would thmk of entrusting
ten important legal case in the hands
of a dyspeptic lawyer, anv more than
he would 'bare to entrust his own life.
or that of a dear one, in the hands of
a phvsician who is nervous, irritdble
or a dyspeptic. Men must have good
digestion, strong nerves and vital
manhood in order to render a clean,
clear-cut decision, either in medicine
law or business.
I say to the young man who would
achieve greatness, who would make
himself felt as a power, either in
finance or professional pursuits: Put
your stomach in a healthy condition,
make any sacrifice to get well, even
If 1t takes your last dollar. If you are
addicted to smoking or drinking to
excess, stop these habits a t once.
Keep regular hours, associate with
people who are healthy, morally and
While m y Paw Paw remedy will
digest almost anything that it touches,
and will cure nearly all forms of ner
vousness, yet it is absolutely neces
sary for the people who would enjoy
perfect health that they should not
abuse their stomachs or waste their
nervous energies. T can recommend
this Paw Paw remedy to all weak and
debilitated people. I t makes old
stomachs almost as good as new.
Its marvelous power for digesting
food and getting the best out of it
makes for good, rich, red bloo d. This
In turn, strengthens the nerves, builds
up the general system, and will surely

A farmer living in the western part
of the state, who came to Minnesota
a few years ago from Norway, writes
the following letter to his brother in
Christiania. I t is of interest as show
ing how the former citizens of Scan
dinavia represent conditions here to
the friends they have left in the fath
"Dear Si r and BrotherAs it has
been some time since I heard from
you,* I want to write nows o that you
may hear something from u sand our
dearly beloved adopted country before
Christmas. W e are in good health
and in a happy frame of mind. The
times are pretty goodmone y is easy,
and work is plenty and well paid for .
Common laborers get $2 a day, masons
and carpenters $4 a day, and others in
proportion. During the threshing sea
son I got $4 a day for myself and
team. W e might live luxuriously now
were it not for the old $2,000 debt
hanging over us, as a bad one-eighth
of our earthly possessions. But w e
have paid a good portion of it ($680)
Our gir ls "have earned as high a s
$40 and $50 a month, but they d o not
offer to help me pay m y debts. They
are like their mother in this respect,
preferring to put the money into the
bank at 5 per cent, while I pay 6 to
8 per cent. I have never, however,
asked them to help m e because I know
that the American woman generally
is the master of the situation. Our
boys help all they can on our 400-acre
farm, and I must admit that they run
the binders and gang plow nearly as
well as I can.
The boys are in the eighth and
tenth grade respectively, having so
far passed every year, altho they
could not attend school until after it
froze tip in any one year, and they
have to drive in all ten American
miles (to and from school) every day.
I a m very glad that we settled in
a good country with plenty of good
people in it . Those who are not so
very good make really excellent bind
e r twine, which was once so ld m e a t
cost, one cent a pound being added
for safe delivery. I simply love the
American people, their civilization,
their government, and their easy and
You will soon read that we, for the
sake of humanity, will take under our
wings as sovereign states the repub
lics of Cuba and Panama. And let
me tell you I would be very glad to
count as independent sister states, in
our really uniting American union,
Sweden, Norway and Denmark. Lib
erty is not unknown to any of them,
but as among the family of nations
they are simply three ciphers. You
are neutral, but you have to protect
your neutrality. You are nobody and
you look to the "powers" to protect
your right to be nobody, altho you are
capable of being somebody.
Another thing, you fear Russia, and
if the other powers did not protect
your neutrality she would swallow
you up. But Russia is a n old friend
of ours, and if you became one of u s
you would become a "friend of Russia,
whom thereafter you would never
need to fear.
The best of your people have emi
grated to this, the richest and best
country on earth, retaining the kind
liest feelings towards you and the
best wishes for your prosperity. Now,
as American citizens, they feel, with
pleasure and pride, that they are
somebody, and only wish and hope
that by your joining the United
States of America you might become
somebody, too. When your honorable
kings over there wish to abdicate
their thrones, join us and be some
body, you may rest assured that your
kings will be properly honored, re
spected and provided for .
