NEW MEDICAL DISCOVERY.
A Positive Cure for Dyspepsia.
This may read as though we were put
ting It a little strong, because it is gen
erally thought by tho majority of peo
pie that Dyspepsia in its chronic form
is incurable, or practically .so. But we
have longsince shown that Dyspepsia
is curable, nor is it such a difficult mat
ter as It at first appears.
The trouble with Dyspeptics is that
they arc continually dieting, starving
them'-eUes. or going to opposite ex
tremes or else deluging the already
over-burdened stomach with ''bitters,"
'after dinner pills," etc., which invarl
ably increaw the difficulty even if in
some caes they do give a slight tern
porary relief. Such treatment of the
stomach simply makes matters worse.
What the stomach wants is rest Now how
can the stomach become rested, recuper
ated and at the nine time the body
nourished aud sustained.
This is the great secret and this Is also
the sacret of the uniform success of
Stuart's DvspcpMa Tablets. This Is a
comparatlvelv n"w remedy, but Its sue
cesa and popularity leaves no doubt as
to Pa merits.
The Tablets -will digest the food any
way, regardless of condition of stomach.
The sufferer from Dyspepsia, according
to direction, is to eat an abundance of
good, wholesome food and use the tablets
before ind after each meal and tlie result
vill be tlsat the food will be digested no
matter how bad your dyejiepsia may be,
because as before stated, the tabletB will
digest the f-xxl even if the stomach is
wholly inactive. To illus-tratc our meaning
plainly, if you take 1,800 grains of meat,
eggs or ordinary food and place it in a
tmpcntuie of 98 degrees, and put -with
it one of Stuart's Dyspepbia Tablets it
will digest the meat or eggs almost as
perfectly as if the meat was inclosed
within the stomach.
The stomach may lw ever so weak yet
these tablets will perform the work of
digeslio'i and the body and brain will be
properly nourished and at the same time
a radical, lasting cure of dyspepsia will
be made becaube the much abu.sed stomach
will be given, to some cxteut, a much need
ed rest l'our druggist win tell you that
of the many remedies advertised to cure
dyspepsi? none of them has given so com
plete and gereral satisfaction as Stuart's
Dyspepsia Tablets, and not least In im
portauce in these hard times is the fact
that they are also the cheapest and give
the most good for the leabt money
