Whether the occupation of Cuba by
the United States forces will prov3
eventually a good thing or not, it is a
very costly luxury. The actual cost
for using a portion of our army as in
sular police is at least $5,000,000 a
year besides other expenses which
have to be met out of the Cubaii
treasury. Whether you have been a
sufferer from ailments of the stomach.

short time, we believe that Hostetter'1-"

you. At least our past experience ha3
proven beyond all doubt that it is n
very superior medicine for such cases.

any rate. It cures indigestion, dys
