TOOK A STRAW VOTE.
Interesting Experiment In a Restau rant. An advertising agent, representing a prominent New York magazine, while on a recent western trip, was dining one evening in a Pittsburg restaurant. While waiting for his order he glanced over his newspaper and no ticed the advertisement of a well known dyspepsia preparation, Stuart’s Dyspepsia Tablets; as he himself was a regular user of the tablets he. began speculating as to how many of the oth er . traveling men in the dining room •were also, friends of. the popular rem edy for indigestion. H* sdys: "I counted twenty-tnree men at the tables and In the hotel of fice I took the trouble to interview them and was surprised to learn that nine of the twenty-three made a prac tise of taking one or two of Stuart’s ' Dyspepsia Tablets after each meal. “One of them told me he had suffered so much from stomach trouble that at one time he had been obliged to quit the road, but since using Stuart’s Dys- I pepsia Tablets had been entirely free ' from indigestion, but he continued their use, especially while traveling, on account of irregularity in meals and because like all traveling men he was often obliged to eat what he could get and not always what he wanted. "Another, who looked the picture of health, said he never ate a meal with out taking a Stuart Tablet afterward . because he could eat what he pleased ' and when he pleased, without fear of a sleepless night or any other trouble. "Still another used them because he was subject to gas on the stomach, causing pressure on heart and lungs, shortness of breath and distress in chest, which he no longer experienced since using the tablets regularly. "Another claimed that Stuart’s Dys pepsia Tablets was the only safe rem edy he had ever found for sour stom ach and acidity, he had formerly used I common soda to relieve the trouble, 1 but the tablets were much better and 1 safer to use.” i After smoking, drinking or other ex- < cesses which weaken the digestive or gans, nothing restores the stohiach to a healthy, w’holesome condition so ef fectually as Stuart’s Tablets. Stuart’s Dyspepsia Tablets contain the natural digestives, pepsin, diastase, which every weak stomach lacks, as well as nux, hydrastin and yellow par illa, and can be safely relied upon as a radical cure, for every form of poor digestion.

The agreement was a matter of congratulation to them, and the boys began to feel proud of their prospects of hirsute adornment.

No's’ York, Jan. 27.—Yesterday's im- " provument in speculative sentiment seem ed tiij be maintained, today, but the trad- 2 ing Was at a low ebb. The Venezuelan situation as a depressing influence on the market has been pretty thoroughly elim inated but this does not prove that any speculative enthusiasm was held in check - by that influence. Today's total sales of j stocks were little changed from yester day. In a few cases there was Inlying of .> stocks on the strength of special develop- ~e ments, but this demand did not follow a 5 rise in prices far and had very little sym- ^ pathetic effect upon the general list. The g firmness of the coalers was based upon the reporl of increased December net j earnings by the New Jersey General. „ Amalgamated was bought on reports of j the acquisition by the company of mines . in Scandinavia and on the rise in price ' of copper in London. A number of low 4 priced, railroad stocks were lifted. Man- v hattan was under pressure of realizing by . those who had bought the stock for the ,. privilege of subscribing to the stock the rights lor which came oit the stocK. to day. The situation in the money and exchange markets was without apprecia ble change. The character of the early advanee in stocks was defined by the readiness of traders to realize. The sell ing of the last hour was a proclamation of weariness with the attempt to get prices up. The market closed dull and heavy. The bond market was moderately active and the movement of prices was irregular. Total sales, par value, $2,210, 000. United States bonds were all un changed on the last call. New York Money Market.
