WHAT IT MEANS TO YOU.
Fctt People Itcnllxe the Importnnce of

ilany people suler from dyspepsia and do
not know it- They feel mean, out of sorts,
peevish, do not sleep well, ao not have a
i,ood, keen appetite, uo not have the Inclina
tion and ncrjfy for physical or mental work
they onco had, but at the same time do not
feel any particular pain or distress in the
stomach, iet all this is the result of poor
digestion, an insidious form of Dyspepsia,
uhich can only be cured by a remedy spec
ially lptenJed to cure It and make the dl
Eestlve organs act naturally and properly
digest the food eaten. Bitters, after-dinner
pins and nerve tonics will never help the"
trouble; they don't rea;h it. The new medi
cal discovery does. It Is called Stuart's Dys
pepsia Tablets, and "is a specific for dyspep
nla and Indigestion. It cures because It thor
oughly digests all wholesome food taken in
to tho stomach, whether the stomach Is In
good working order or not.
Stuart's Dyspepsia Tablets, by digesting
the food, 'nstcad of making the worn-out
stomach do all the work, gives It a much
needed rest, and a cure of dyspepsia la the
Vnc.i you are nervous, run down and
sleepless, don't make the common mistake
of supposing your nervous system needs
treatment and. fill your stomach with pow
erful, nerve tonics, w hlch mako you feel
gocdr.for a little while, only to tall back
icrther than ever.
Your nerves are all right, but they are
starved they want food.
Nourish them with wholesome every-day
food, and plenty of it, well digested, and
you can .laugh at nerve tonics and medicine.
But the nerves will not be nourished from
, weak, abused stomach, but when the di
lution .has been made perfect by the use
f tWs remedy, all nervous Eymptomadisap-
' Who ever heard of a man or woman
blessed with a vigorous digestion and good
appetite being troubled with their nerves?
Good digestion means a strong, nervous
system, abundance ot, energy and capacity
to e&Joy the j;ood things of life.
Stuart's Dyspepsia Tablets will certainly
set your stomach and digestive organs
.rich!-; they cant help but do it, because
they 'nourish the body by digesting the food
eaten, and rest the stomach.
You get .nourishment and rest at one and
the same time, and that Is all the. worn-out
dyspeptic neeOsto build him up and give
new.life to every organ and an added zest
Stuart's Dyspepsia "Tablets are a godsend j
stomachs, weak nerves, and justly merits
the claim of being one of the most worthy
medical discoveries of the time.

It dried his heart of ambition and filled It
with a bitterness, a cynicism that led him
into the life of a recluse, a miser, who
hated the world and nil there was In it.
ROMANCE OF HIS Lim
The residents of Ardsley have woven
many a pretty story about their odd resi
dent, and most of them are founded on fact.
They tell how, years ago. whenever -June
10 the wedding day which never came
rolled around he donned his best coat and
sat for hours In his cottage conversing
with the spirit of his lost sweetheart; how
on summer evenings, his hands behind him,
he used to walk back and forth in the lane
which a few years before he and his fiancee
had traversed, whispering love and piom
lses; Iiqw he used to spend hours in the vil
lage cemetery, wandering among the myrtle
beds or sitting with bowed head In a bough
hewn chair, which long.ngo fell tc pieces,
and how every morning In the rammer
fresh wreaths of flowers, w ere found on the
They tell also of a vast fortune which,
they aver, he Inherited from his mother,
and of thousands of dollars in greenbacks
which were eaten by H15 rat, which even
yet swarm In his hovel.
But these are all echoes of years nnd
years ago. There are still other stories.
They have nil been told and retold, nnd
now are being rehearsed still again, be
cause of the new Incident which hai come
Into the old man's life. t
The privations to which he has for years
subjected himself have -wrjecked him phys
ically, and the Idiosyncrasies which were
formerly cited as manifestations of a
broken heart are now put forth as evi
dences of insanity.
With the rescue a short time ago of
Fisher from the unsanitary hovel which he
called home, and the discovery of several
thousand dollars beneath the floors and In
hidden corners, numerous relatives ap
peared. Up to that time It was supposed
that Fisher had not a relative In the world
and the hermit thought so nimseir.
The Boanlof Health of the village In
vestigated the condltions-ln the'hovel, which
had been 'described asrfi)tny almost be

a small tin box. concealed In a hole In the
wall, thev found SSO0 In 20 bills.
In other crannies they unearthed a small
fortune In gold, silver and bills, and bank
books showing deposits In several savings
banks, the Interest on which had been accumulating-
almost since the Civil War.
MOTH KATEN GARMENTS.
In a small closet, moth eaten .and brown
with dust, they found remnants of the her

top hats, patent leathers and all the other
articles which go to mako up a well-dressed
