the stomach has been abused, all
sorts of disorders ensue, maladies of
most kinds being due* to derange

and dyspepsia are the most common
results. The liver becomes inactive,
creating billiousness and worse; the
bowels become constipated, and
their failure to oust the fecal matter
poisons the entire system. The kid
