One of the Mont Important Questions
to Consider in the Search for
Happiness and Health.
If >our stomach cannot digest your
food, what will' Where's the relief.' The
answer ?? in Stuart's l>yspepsia Tablets,
heraus, as all stomach troubles arise
trout indigestion, and because one ingre?
dient of Stuart's Dyspepsia Tablets is
able to thoroughly and completely digest
vuoo graias of food, doesn't it stauil to
reavui that the-*' tablels are going to

And Stuart's I>\->pep-ia Tablets are the
result of this scientific di-<ovcr>. They

Avoid dangers of cold floors!
The world's leading public-health
official writes that most of the colds,
coughs, neuralgia and rheumatism
are due to rooms equipped with old
fashioned heating, where on windy
days there is often found a difference
of ten degrees between the ai,r at the
floor level as compared with the
mid-center or breathing plane of the
room. This temperature difference
along the floor level chills the feet
and legs, producing faulty circula?
tion?the work of the heart is thus
"short-circuited" and one's vitality
is severely taxed.
It must make the druggist wonder at the persistence of tbe
steady procession of customers who each winter drag in
daily to be relieved of ills which could in genera? be
avoided by putting in this modern heating outfit It
keeps every part of the home at uniform warmth?floors,
halls, vestibules, bays, nooks and corners all genially alike
in comfort and healm-protecting temperature. With beat?
ing by IDEAL Boilers and AMERICAN Radiators there are no cold floors, drafts and chill
spots and the air is not robbed of its purity and vitality by escaping ash-dust and coal-gases.
Look at the official health maps of any big city, which will show you how free from deaths due to neuralgia,
rheumatism, pneumonia, coughs and consumption are those districts where practically ail the best homes are
warmed and ventilated by IDEAL Boilers and AMERICAN Radiators.
The Indian huddled over his campfire is one of the worst victims of
pneumonia, rheumatism, consumption and other winter maladies. So,
too, the farmers (according to Government Statistics), with their old
fashioned heating, show a far bigger death rate than do city people from
the ravages of these winter diseases.
IDEAL Boilers and AMERICAN Radiators are used to warm and
ventilate the leading hotels, sanitariums and baths at Aix-les-Bains, Nice,
Mentone, The Riviera, Carlsbad, Marien bad. Cairo, Simla, Japan. Florida,
Southern California, etc These facts should point the right heating way
IDEAL Boilers and AMERICAN Radiators are now put in old or new
cottages, mansions, stores, schools, churches, etc without disturbing
occupants or tearing up floors or partitions. Need no repairs. Will
outwear the building. Their big savings in fuel, labor and absence of
repairs soon repay their cost. Writr, 'phone or call to-day for free book,
