Is Frequently Caused by the Worry
Attendant On Dyspepsia.
If you would win in the Battle of Life
you must have a clear brain, keen
senses, perfect vipor, shrewdness, en
ergy and ambition.
Dyspepsia kills these needful quali
ties. You can't succeed if you are con
stantly tortured by dyspepsia or indi
gestion. But you can pet rid of dys
pepsia, indigestion, biliousness, sour
stomach, or any other ailment of stom
ach or digestive organs by simply
taking one or two of Dodd's Dyspepsia
Tablets after each meal.
With a perfect digestion a strong",
healthy body, a clear, capable brain,
viijor, ambition, determination, ener
gy, activit-, keen, alert senses. Dodd'a
Dyspepsia Tablets ensure all these.
Dodd's Dyspepsia Tablets have nev
er failed to cure any or all of the dis
eases named wheti they have been
fairlj tried. They cannot fail.
Dr. K. B. Strong, New York City,
writing in the American Journal of
Health, describes Dodd's Dyspepsia
Tablets as a remedy which could not
possibly be more efficacious though it
emanated from a council of the leading;
physicians of the world.

Monday and were ipiiekly sent else

to the arriving volunteers at Cape

London, Feb. 7. In tin absence of
war news this morning spencer Wil
kinson, in The Morning Post. discusses
the problem of arming the nation at
home. He says: "There is now such
intense and widespread interest in the
army and its management that the na
tion has itself to thank if the solving
of the problem should not Im tin h:s-
torv of the next few months."
He proceeds to argue that "conscrip
tion would lo t aim less unlcso the gen
eral management of the army were
first remodeled." On this mint he
says: "A war office that for thirty
years has not known what to do with
the volunteers would not know what
To do with half a million conscripts."
Wilkinson also discusses the use nf
the bayonet, remarking: "This wea
pon very seldom comes into actual
use. Its effect is on the spirits of
both sides rather than on the bodies
of either. The British by using for
mations fit for charging, but not for
hooting, have lost ten times as many
men as the Itoers have lost by British
