No Man ts Stronger
Than His Stomach
A strong mas is strong all over. No man can be
Strang who is suffering from weak stomach with its
consequent indigestion, or from some other disease
of the stomach and its associated organs, which im
pairs digestion and nutrition. For when the stomach
is weak or diseased there is a loss of the nutrition
contained in food, which is the source of all physical
strength. "When a man " doesn't feel just right,"
when he doesn't sleep well, has an uncomfortable
leeling in the stomach after eating, is languid, nervous, irritable and despond
tat, he is losing the nutrition needed to make strength.
Such m man should use Dr. Pierce's Golden Medical
Discovery. It cares diseases of the stomach and other
organs of digestion and nutrition. It enriches the blood, .
invigorates the liver, strengthens the kidneys, nourishes
the nerves, and so GIVES HE3.LTH 3ND STRENGTH TO
THE WHOLE BODY.

CLOSE OUT KENO
The Mayor Thinks There Is
Good Order; Mexico iAl-
Juarez officials seem unmoved by tho
Francisco Portdllo, acting "efe politico,
denies the insinuation that he is con
sidering means to close the keuo houses
of the Mexican city,' as made in the
current number of El Trabajo, a Juarez
weekly. "I think there is very good or
der there," he says. It is pointed out by
comandante Ponce de Leon that since
public lotteries are sanctioned by the
federal government the closing of or
,derly gaming houses -would be Incoo
sistant. Still the movement against keno gam
bling is not alone confined to the press
of the Mexican city. "All the talk in
the -world cannot down the- great fact
that gambling is immoral In its result,"
said a prominent Juarez professional
man yesterday. "The federal govern
ment is considering the means of event
ually closing all lotteries,, and even the
long established fiesta gambling season.
That -work needs to be done slowly and
will take years. But tgive new per
mits for new and strange games unfre
quented by Mexicans is only to bring
income for the state government, of no
benefit to the municipality, and, by 'is
degrading force, a great danger."

Amos Williams, janitor of the city
hall, reports ihat all expenses of the
city hall, embracing repairs, mainte

to $2697.79, including janitor's salary.
He recommends that the entire building
should be painted, inside and outside;
that the building should be rewired,
and that the basement boiler used for
heating, necessitates overhauling and
repairing previous to further use. I
endorse all these recommendations.
