JTervons People Are Frequent Sufferers
From Too Much Hydrochloric
Acid In the Stomach.
A Trial Package of Stuart's Dyspepsia
Tablets Sent Free.
""Sour stomach," or acid dyspepsia is
a form of indigestion in which entire
ly too much hydrochloric acid is se
creted by the stomach. A sour taste
in the mouth Is the most common
symptom of acid dyspepsia; and the
Saliva, which is normally alkaline, is
found, when tested, to be changed to
acidv or just the opposite of what It
should be, and is a state of the secre
tion which causes rapid and extensive
destruction of the teeth.
t Everything eaten -turns more or less
sour In the stomach, but sweets and
acid fruits are far worse in this re
spect than other foods. If the eructa
tion of liquids from the stomach oc-
y curs, they have surti an extremely
sour taste as to set the teeth on edge.
Hydrochloric acid is an important
constituent in the gastric juice, but
when too much of it is secreted, It does
positive harm to the mucous lining of
the stomach: and when acid dyspepsia
Is long continued it- often sets up
chronic gastritis, gastric ulcer, and
other serious diseases. The premature
loss of all the teeth has been caused
by acid saliva, which was dependent
upon the excessively acid condition of
the stomach. 1
STUART'S DYSPEPSIA TABLETS,
besides furnishing pure, aseptic pepsin
to' the stomach to dilute the excess of
hydrochloric acid, and to digest pro-te-ids
and albuminous foods very thor
oughly, also contain bismuth subni
trate'and calcium carbonate, which are
antagonistic to the acid, and therefore
neutralize the effect of the excessive
amount of acid In the stomach, and
the continued use of these tablets will
change the perverted condition of the
secretions to a normal state.
If you are suffering from "hyper-chlor-hydra,"
as physician's term it,
or in other words, acid dyspepsia, and
experience a sour taste In the mouth,
with acid eructations or heartburn, be
gin at once the use of Stuart's Dys
pepsia Tablets, using one or two after
each, meal, or as may be required, and
the same quantity at retiring time, for
if this trouble is allowed to run on,
it may cause serious organic changes
in the stomach. There are cases- on
record where the lining of the stom
ach has been completely eaten away
through perverted action of the secre
tions. Stuart's Dyspepsia Tablets .have been
tried in all forms of Indigestion and
dyspepsia, with unfailing success, so
that no matter which form you may
be suffering from, the quickest way lo
bring about a cure is through the use
of these powerful stomach tablets.
Secure from your druggist a fifty
cent box, and get cured of acid dyspep
sia, or whatever form of indigestion
you may be suffering. -Also send us

mated increase of ?4, 672,200 over the

The most notable increase in produc
tion was that of Nevada, where the
preliminary figures Indicate a gain of
$3,219,000 and where mining was active,
I particularly at Goldfield and Tonopah.
j For Alaska, an increase of 1,088,800 Is

The following brief reviews summar
ize the conditions of the gold and sil
ver industry in the territories:
Since, with few exceptions.the- large
gold and silver producers o'f Arizona
were in steady operation during 1909,
and since the output of copper ore was
materially Increased, the production of
the precious metals was probably in ex
cess of that, of 190S. Although the

At Copper Hill, in the Globe district, a
500 ton matting plant was erected and I

Copper company, and at Johnson, in
Cochise county, the Arizona United
company constructed a 125 ton plant,
which was derated and shipped matte.
The smelter at Sasco, Pima county,
wTas operated at full capacity, and other
furnaces will be added. The plant at
Humboldt was not in operation, but the
company was reorganized and many
improvements were made. The Clara
company, completed Its matting plant
at Swan sea, Yuma county. There was
great activity in the building of power
plants for generating electricity, which,
will reduce operating costs." In Yavapai
and Mohave counties dredges were in
stalled, although one erected opposite
Eldorado canyon, on Colorado river,
was said to be unsuccessful, on account
of the fineness of the gold.
Twelve new reduction plants were
pompleted or In course of construction

of Globe, the Duquesne company was

The Golconda mine, in Mohave coun
ty, became an important shipper of
zinc ore, for which there was a good
price during the year. The most ener
getic development was carried on at he

railroads entered the town,' and at the
end of the year daily shipments were
being made by the Germania and Great
There was great activity in develop
ing low grade copper deposits. At Ray,
in Pinal county, and at Miami, near
Globe, in Gila county, deposits of cop
per ore of unusual size, containing
about 2.5 percent, have tjeen developed
by churn drilling. Miami was con
nected with Globe by rail, and initial
work was accomplished at both places
for extensive concentration plants.
The director of the mint estimated
the gold production of Arizona at $2,
672,300 4n 1909, against $2,500,000 in
1908, and the silver output at 3,632,200
fine ounces In 1909, against 2,900,000
fine ounces in 1908.
The metal output of New Mexico in
1909 showed little change from that
of 1908. The price for copper has not
