A Posltlvo Curo for Dyspepsia.
T"hl8 may rend as though we were put
ting it a little strong because It is gen
erally thought by the majority of peo
ple that Dyepepsla In Its chronic form
is Incurable, or practically so. But we
have long since shown that Dyspepsia
Is curable nor Is it such a difficult
matter as at first nppenrs.
The trouble with Dyspeptics Is that
they are continually dieting, starving
themso'NCB, or going to opposite ex
tremes or else deluging the already
over burdened stomach with "bitters,"
"afttr dinner pills," etc., which in
variably Increase the difficulty even if
In some cases they do give a slight
temporary relief. Such a treatment of
the stomach simply make matters
worse. What the stomach wants is a
rest. Now how can the stomach be
come rested, recuperated nnd at the
same time the body nourished and
This Is tho great secret and this Is
also tho secret of the uniform success
of Stuart's Dyspepsia Tablets, This
i a comparatively new remedy, but
Its success and popularity leaves no
doubt ns to Its merits.
The tablets will digest the food any
way, regardless of condition of stom
ach. The sufferer from Dyspepsia accord
ing to directions Is to eat an abund
ance of good, wholesome food ind use
the tablets before and after each nie.il
unt" tho resuit will bo ' lift t the foo.l
will bo digested no matter how bad
your dyspepsia may be, because as be
fore stated, the tablets will digest the
food even If the stomach Is wholly in
active. To illustrate our meaning
plainly, If you take 1.S00 grains of meat,
eggs or ordinary food and place It In
a temperature of OS degrees, and put
with it one of Stuart's Dyspepsia tab
lets will digest the meat or eggs al
most as perfectly as If the meat was
enclosed within the stomach.
The stomach may be ever so weak
yet these tablets will preform the work
of digestion and the body nnd brain
will bo properly nourished and at the
same time a radlcul, lasting cure of
dyspepsia will bo made because the
much abused stomach will be given, to
some extent, a much needed rest. Your
druggist will tell you that of the many
remedies advertised to curo dyspepsia
none of them has given so complete
and general satisfaction as Stuart's
Dyspepsia Tablets nnd not least In Im
portance In these hard times Is .the
fact that they are also the cheapest
and give the most good for the least

JOHN SHIMtMAN'S INTUKVIEW.
He Thought Ho Hud Not Talked
Much to the Reporter, but tho
Printed Report Undeceived Him.
Plxley, in the Times-Herald.
Senator Sherman is not an easy prey
for the newspaper boys. Throughout
Ohio he has long been called "theMans
field icicle" because of his personal
frigidity; and yet he is at all times
kindly, courteous and to those who en
Joy his confidence even affable. But
when he quietly says that he "has noth
ing to say for publication" the inter
viewer may as well retire at once.
"The newspaper reporter," he once
remarked to me, "Is the greatest en
igma of the nineteenth century. I am
Interested In him always, respect him
generally and fear him sometimes.
But I never cease to wonder at his re
sourcefulness in searching for news.
" Shortly after I was appointed sec
retary of the treasury in President
Hayes' cabinet I had occasion to go to
New York on business of an official
nature which I wanted to keep strict
ly quiet. I took especial pains to
guard ugainst newspaper men and
llattered myself that I had succeeded
"I transacted my business without
reportolal interruption and fancied
that I had entirely eluded the frater
nity. As I entered the elevator at the
hotel to go to my room, however, I
found that the car contained one
other passenger who, Instinctively, I
felt was a member of the bohemlan
"The car started upward, but be
tween the second and th'.rd floors it
got stuck and came to a dead stop.
Apparently the elevator boy had lost
control of it and was unable to start
it in either direction.
I instantly divined that, the cause of
the stoppage was a half dollar given
to the boy by the reporter for making
me captive. The shrewdness of the plan
amused me greatly and I suppose such
enterprises really deserved to bo re
warded, but I kept as mum as an oys
ter and refused to answer a single
question of the volley fired at me at
point blank range.
"The reporter gave up the Interview
as a bad Job, and the car again start
ed upward. As I left It I couldn't for
bear the pleasure of saying with
malicious earnestness: 'Young man,
you will confer a gret favor on me if
you will not print what I have Just
said to you.
'"I'd like to oblige you senator,' he
replied, with much seriousness, 'but
business Is business, nnd the story will
have to go.'
"Somehow, I recalled that episode a
dozen times on my trip back to Wash
ington. When I arrived I picked up a
New York paper, and there on the first
page, staring at mo under great,
black hendllnes, was a two-column In
terview touching upon nearly nil the
leading questions of the day and giv
ing my views upon the very financial
matters which had taken me to the
"At first I was boiling mad. Then
I sat down to read the article through.
It was a work of art well written
nnd carefully edited. It gave my
views precisely, did n6t misrepresent
me in tho slightest particular, and In
fact, voiced my Ideas In better shape
than I probably could have done the
work myself. I was more than pleased;
I was delighted and really felt qulto re
lieved that the vexed question of pub
licity had been settled so well. My
first work after finishing tho article
was to send a telegram to the New
York paper thanking its representa
tive for the care he had shown in re
porting mo corectly. Pretty soon a
telegram was handed to me. It was
dated New York and merely said;
To Senator Sherman: Thank you.
The elevator is running all right to
day, "It boro tho name of the reporter
a name I had never heard before and
have never heard since,"
