turned the clothes over to Patrolman j
Fowier, who took them to Sent ten sta j

the clothes belong to some man who

'CONSTIPATION CAUSES
BY INDEGISTION |
;!• Cured by Helping the Stomachs Do
Its Work as It Should,
j All forms of constlpaJiou, bowel*or
trouble owe mu&i of their
origin to the Improper digestion of
food. The bowels measure 30 foot.
,Tbe Inside walls of surfaces are wound
.tightly about with millions of nerves.
These nerves give life and control mul-
Jlons of little mouths or suckers which
supposed to take nourishment
rfvom the food as it leaves the stem- 1
( ach and passes along this 3o foot hu I
I man canal.
| When indigestion, dyspepsia or
Stomach trouble occurs, tbe tood be-'
ing undigested, passes over these mil* I
lions of mouths, it is a fermented de
caying mass and holds no isuuiisbinent
* as It should.
The little mouths suck It up, im
part these impurities to the biood.
impregnate the little nerves with pois
on and so the work of constipation
* and bo\ei trouble begins
A natural Juice or seen*lon belongs
normally In the little tells and glands
along the mucous membrane of the
•10*foot canal or bowel. When lndignu
tion occurs this Juice is Jackaug and
no the mass of waste mutter <annot !
J>a«s along as it should .<nd Is piled
Yip and caked in the bowel,abus bring- 1
Ing pain and misery.
After a while the nerveswand nerve
centers which give vigor mid life to
the bowel become paralyze it, thus for
ever prohibiting the bow< A from per
forming its natural duties.
Stuart's Dyspepsia TaWfcts, when
taken after meals, digests the food
properly even though the stomach is
sick and it passes ba the bowels nour
ishment and Jute**” which help the
Intestines not only to do their work
at once, but builds them io. restores
vitality to the nerves, hrtns-V ,uew se
cretion to the glands and mils, helps
bowel action and enriches the Mood.
The stomach is tlw? cause. Common
sense and science are one on this
point. Y'ou see it yourself One little
grain of Stuart’s Dyspepsia Tnblets
* will perfectly digest 3 .two grains of
food. The assimilation of a meal by
one of theso tablets la an easy matter

DIVISION OF DISTRICTS
How to Win the Magnificent*
Awards the Contest Offers
Any woman who desires to win oue of tho numerous attrac
tive prizes should look up that part of tills advertisement which
explains the division of the distri* ts, determine which district she
is in. then clip the nomination ballot and send It in to the Contest
Editor filled out according to the instructions given on each Itcillot.
Vote*' cau be secured in greatest hum hers and with smallest
effort by securing payments on subscription to The Detroit Tunes.
As an Instance of how rapidly the special ballots issued for sub
scription payment count up in votes it is only necessary to state
that with a single subscription payment for thirty-six moitflu a
special ballot is issued for 6.000 votes
The contestant should begin immediately and ask all iier
friends and acquaintances to give her a subscription to The Detroit
Times, perfect a campaign organization, and make a vigorous uud
decisive campaign for victory. No contestant should hesitate yto
ent* r the competition who would like to own one of the attractive
prizes offered, but rather, reminding herself that she has wlthlcr
ner the qualities which will make her victorious, begin lmnardiate
lv and make an energetic campaign for the prizes.
The work of making a contest campaign for subscriptions and
votes is of the pleasantest nature as contestants learn with sur
prise upon making their first efforts. The contest campaign has
many things in common with the political campaign, and with
the opportunity it offers the contestants to exercise their politi
