A Sorl of Sti-.-uv Vnto.
An ad'vertising agent, re;iresenling a
prominent Xew York magazihe, while
on a recent western trip, was dining one
evening in a Pittsburg restmirant.
While waiting for his order. he glanced
over his newspaper and noticed the ad
vertisement of a well-known dyspepsia
preparatioh, Stuart's Dyspepsia Tablets;
as he himself was a regular user of thc
ta'olets, he began speculatlng as to how
many of the other traveiinjr men in the
dining-room were also friends of the
popular remedy for indigestion.
He says: "1 counteu twehty-three men
at the tables and' in the hotel otiice I
took the trouble to Intervlew them an<'
was surprised to learn that nine of the
twenty-three made a practice of taking
one or two of Stuart's Dyspepsia Tablets
after each meal.
One of them told me he had suffered
so much from stomach trouble that at
one time he had been obllgc-d to quit the
road. but since using Stuart's Dyspepsia
Tablets had been entirely free from indi?
gestion, but he continued their use, espe?
cially while traveling, on account of Ir
regularlty in meals and' because like nli
traveling men, he was often obliged to
eat what he Could get and not alway.
what he wanted.
Another, who looked the plcture ci
health, said he never ate a meal without
taking a Stuart Tablc-t afterward be?
cause he could eat what he pleased and
when he pleased. without fear of a sleep
less night or any other trouble.
Still another used them because he was
subject to gas on stomach, causing pres
sure on heart and lungs, shortness of
breath and distress in chest, which hc
no longer experienced since using the
tablets regularly.
Another claimed that Stuart's Dyspep?
sia Tablets was the. .only safe remedy he
had ever found for sour stomach and
acldity; he had formerly used common
soda to relieve tlie trcuble, but the tab?
lets were much better and' safer to use
After smoking. drinking or other excess
es which weaken the digestive organs,.
nothing restores the stomach to a heaithy
wholesome condition so effectually as
Stuart's Tablets.
Stuart's Dyspepsia Tablets contain the
natural dlgestlves?pepsln. dlastase. which
every weak stomach lacks, as well as
nux, hydrastln and yellow parllla. and
can be safely relled.-.upon as a radical
cure, for every form of poor digestion.

MAY ACT TO-MORROW.
Street Car Incorporators Dei.y That
They Have l)eei<led on Plan.
Since tlie refusal of the City Council
to extend the- lime-lim't of the filing of
the bond by the Richmond Street-Car
Syndlcate, various rumors have been in
circulation. There was one on the streets
yesterday to the effect that Messrs. Pat
ton. Ainslie, Slterding and Travers. of
Richmond, all incorporators and Messrs.
Wilson and Watson. of Xew York would
aceept the franchise and post the $20,000
forfeiture bond.
This may or may not be done. Time
will develop that. but one thing is sure,
that at the time this rumor was given
currency no such plan of action had
been decided upon by the gentlemen
named. One of them, when seen. stated
in the most emphatie terms that no meet?
ing had bean held and no such decision
made. among the gentlemen named. '-The
matter." said he, "is in statu quo. We
do not know what will be done at this
time. We are simply waiting and while
