DANGER IN SODA.
Scrtons Ilesnlts Sometimes Follow
Its llxcosslvo Use.
Common soda la all right In Its place
and indispensable In tho kitchen and
for cooking and washing purposes, but
It, was never intended for a medicine,
and people who use It as eiich will
some day' regret it.
We refer to tho common use of soda
toj relieve heartburn or sour stomach,
a habit which thousands of people
practice almost daily, and one which Is
fraught with danger, moreover the
soda only gives temporary relief and
in the end tho stomach troublo gets
worse and worse.
The soda nets as a mechanical irri
tant to tho walls of the stomach and
bowels and cases are oh record Where
It accumulated in tho intestines, caus
ing death by inflammation or periton
itis. Dr. Harlandson recommends as tho
safest and surest cure for sour stom
ach (acid dyspepsia) an excellent prep
aration sold by druggists under tho
name of Stuart's Dyspepsia Tablets.
Theso tablets are large 20 grains loz
enges, very pleasant to taste and con
tain the natural acids, peptones and
digestion and when 'taken after meals
they digest the food perfectly nnd
promptly before it has time to ferment,
sour and poison the blood and nervous
Dr. Wuerth states that he Invariably
UBes Stuart's Dyspepsia Tablets In all
cases of stomach derangements and
finds them a certain cure not only for
stomach, but by promptly digesting the
food they create a healthy appetite, in
crease llesh and strengthen tne ac
tion of tho heart and liver. They are
not a cathartic, but intended onlv for
stomach diseases nnd weaknesses and
will be found reliable In nny stomach
troublo except cancer of tho stomach.
All druggists sell Stuart's Dyspepsia
Tablets tit 50 cents per package.

THE SUNFLOWER STATn.
Keep Your Kyo on Kansas nnd Sco
Wlint It Cnn Do in tho Future.
From tho Washington Star.
If you want to make the blood of a
true Kansan boll Just say to him that
the Sunllower has dropped back a peg
lr. the march of civilization. Tom Mc
Neill, an ex-state senator and humor
ist of more than state fame, Is par
ticularly Jealous of the state's fair
name. "You can Just say to the Jays
who are poking fun at Kansas," he
said to a reporter of the Star, "that
whatever they may think of her politi
cal conduct, whether they wear the
sack cloth of the defeated or snort with
the exultant voice of the victor, the
unalterable fact remains that Kansas
is still the geographical centre of the
world the linch pin of the unl.'orse.
Even the fact that half the people of
the world are at this time engaged in
abusing or defending her shows that
fche is built to attract attention nnd In
vite contention. Tho ordinary common
place things of the world do not at
tract attention, only the little things
of vulue invite contention.
"Kansas will in the future, as she
has in the past, overcome more dif
ficulties, create more surprises and
make more material advancement In
a given time than any other state In
'"Kansas Is the only state that ever
grew enough wheat in one season to
furnish bread for more than a week
for every man, woman and child on
the face of the elobe, from Orient to
Occident and from Greenland's icy
mountains to India's coral strand. She
Is the only state that within twenty
four hours can furnish a climate suit
ed to the taste of the Ice man from
Iceland, the Pole from Poland, the
Hoi from Holland or the tropical sav
age from Borneo In his untrammeling
suit of sunshine.
"Kansas is the only state that can
mix In the commerce of every clime
and where a hot wind will affect the
markets of Christendom. Within the
Inst ten years the state has raised suf
ficient corn to fatten enough cattle to
drink up the waters of Lake Superior
and enough hogs to furnish ham gravy
sufficient to float the United States
navy. She has enough natural gas to
supply the furnaces of clvllzatlon and
enough salt to make pickling brine
out of all the fresh waters of the globe.
"Keep your eye on Kansas and don't
be discouraged. She will profit by the
agricultural mistakes of the past and
develop along the lines that nature In
tended." Oil on Troubled Waters.

TUB STEAM WHISTLE.
Tho Useful Tooter Was Invented In
the Interest of the Egg Trade.
It is told that the locomotive whistle
was invented because of the destruc
tion of a load of eggs. When locomo
tives were first built the country roads
wre for the most part crossed at grade
and the engine driver had no way oi
giving warning of his approach ex
cept by blowing a tin horn. The horn,
it may be imagined, was far from be
ing sufficient warning. One day in the
year 1S33 a farmer was crossing the
railroad track on one of the country
roads with a great load of eggs and
butter. Just as he came out upon the
track a train approached. The engine
man blew his horn lustily, but the
faimer did not hear it. Eighty dozen
of eggs and fifty pounds of butter
were smashed Into an indistinguish
able, unpleasant mass and mingled
with the kindling wood to which tho
'wagon was reduced. Tho railway com
pany had to pay the farmer tho value
of his wagon. It was considered a
very serious matter, and straightway a
director of the company, Ashlen Bax
ter by name, went to Alton Grange,
where George Stephenson lived, to see
If ho could not invent something that
would give a warning more likely to
be heard. Stephenson went to work,
and the next day had a contrivance
which, when attached to the engine
holler and the. steam turned on, gave
out a shrill, discordant sound. The
railroad directors, greatly delighted,
ordered similar contrivances attached
to all the locomotives, and from that
day to this tho voice of the locomo
tive -whistle lias never been silent.
