Work When It Is 2iot Able or Yon

You cannot treat your stomach as
some men treat a balky horse; force,
drive or even starve it Into doing work
at which it rebels. The stomach is a
patient and faithful servant and will
tand much abuse and ill-treatment be
fore it "balks," but when it does you
had better go slow with it and not at
tempt to make it work. Some people
have the mistaken Idea that they can
make their stomachs work by starving
themselves. They might cure the
stomach that way, but it would take
so long that they would have no use
for a stomach when they got through.
The sensible way out of the difflculty
is to let the stomach rest if it wants to
and employ a substitute to do its work.
Stuart's Dyspepsia Tablets will do
the work of your stomach for you and
digest your food just as your stomach
used to when it was welL You can
prove this by putting your food in a
glass jar with one of the tablets and
sufficient water and you will see the
food digested in just the same time as
tle digestive fluids of the stomach
would do It. That will satisfy your
mind. Now, to satisfy both your
mind and body take one of Stuart's
Dyspepsia Tablets after eating eat all
and what you want and you will feel
in your mind that your food is being
digested because you will feel no dis
turbance or weight in your stomach;
in fact, you -n-jn forget all about hav
ing a stomach, just as you did when
you were a healthy boy or girl.
Stuart's Dyspepsia Tablets act in a
natural way because they contain only
the natural elements of the gastric
juices and other digestive fluids of the
stomach. It makes no difference what!

Subsequently their presence on
board the steamer Montrose wad
known to Scotland yard through wire
less messages and as the Montrose
was approaching Quebec Crippen and
Miss Leneve were arrested. This "was
on July 31.
The Crime Discovered.
In the meantime the police had vis
ited the Crippen home in Hilldrop
Crescent and in the cellar unearthed
parts of a woman's body. The medical
experts who examined these "were nev
e able anatomically to prove that
they were the body of Belle- Elmore.
Nevertheless, the jury that heard the
Crippen case were satisfied that they
were. Crippen was indicted and con
victed of the murder of his wife, the
evidence including testimony that he
had bought and administered poison
after which he dismembered the body.
He was sentenced to be hanged No
vember 8, but secured a delay of ex
ecution until today. An appeal in his
behalf was denied by the criminal
court of appeals and a petition for a
reprieve -was rejected by home secre
Miss Leneve was indicted and
charged as an accessory after the fact
but was acquitted.
Crippen's Son in Los Angreles.
Los Angeles. Cal., Nov. 23. Local
interest In the Crippen case was ac
centuated by the' fact that Los An
geles was the home of the father and
the son of Dr. H. H.- Crippen.
The attitude of the two towards the
condemned man was so opposite as to
cause comment. Myron Crippen, more
than SO years old, believing implicitly
li the innocence of the physician was
so deeply grieved that he died last
Friday of a broken heart. Up to the
time of his death he would freely
speak of his son and with pride re
lated how he overcame obstacles in
orde to attain a medical education.
Dr. Crippen's early education was re
ceived in California. The father died
practically friendless and penniless,
and his support has been the son, who
up to the time of becoming a fugitive
from justice, furnished him with what
money he needed.
Young Crippen, who is in the em
ploy of a telephone company, however,
has from the first refuged to discuss
the affairs of his father. In fact, he
expressed himself a? but little inter
ested in the case. This he explained
by the fact that he did not know his
father. The mother died when he was
still a baby, which led to his being
left to the care of others and the ftb
er and son were thus separated
