Just to be in fashion, Cuyahoga

FOR WELL PEOPLE.
An Easy Way io Keep Well.
It is easy to keep well if we would
only observe each day a few simple
rules of health.
The all important thing is to keep
the stomach right and to do this it is
not necessary to diet or to follow a
set rule or bill of fare. Such pamper
ing simply makes a capricious appe
tite and a feeling that certain favor
ite articles of food must be avoided.
Prof. Wiechold gives pretty good
advice on this subject, he says: "I
am OS years old and have never had
a serious illness, and at the same
time my life has been largely an in
door one, but I early discovered that
the way to keep healthy was to keep
a healthy stomach, not by eating
Dran crackers or dieting of any sort;
on the contrary I always eat what my
appetite craves, but for the past
eight years I have made it a daily
practice to take one or two of Stu
arfs Dyspepsia Tablets after each
meal andl attribute my robust health
for a man of my age to the regular
daily use of Stuart's Tablets.
My physician first advised me to
use them because he said they were
perfectly harmless and were not a
secret patent medicine,but contained
only the natural digestives, peptones
and diastase, and after using them a
few weeks I have never ceased to
thank him for his advice.
I honestly believe the habit of
taking Stuart's Dyspepsia Tablets
after meals is the real health habit,
because their use brings health to the
sick and ailing and preserves health
to the well and strong.
Men and women past fifty years of
age need a safe digestive after meals
to insure a perfect digestion and to
ward off disease, and the Bafest. best
known and most widely used is Stu
art's Dyspepsia Tablets.
They are lound in every well regu
lated household from Maine to Cali
fornia and in Great Britain and Aus
tralia are rapidly pushing their way
into popular favor.
All druggists sell Stuart's Dyspep
sia Tablets, full sized pkcrs. at 50c
and for a weak stomach a fifty cent
package will often do fifty dollars
worth of good.
