They Show No Structural Defects, Exhibit No
Evidence of Real DiseaseBecause they Are Fagged, Lazy or Contrary, a ft When the stomach won't work, tl whole body suffers, as every tissue or structure of the body depends on the itomacb for nourishment and renewal. If the stomach is weak, Inactive and unable to properly digest food, it not only subjects the body to a state of chronic seml-stnrvatlon or habitually half-fed condition that weakens it and renders it less productive of accomplishment and less resistant to disease, but it allows of the absorption of half-digested, rotting material that is a positive poison to it, and taxes the elini inative organs to expel it from the body. Thus it will be seen that the inconvenience and dis tress, the disturbed rest, the horrors of insomnia, and the dreadful caprices of nightmare, are the most insignificant part of indigestion, and that real danger lurks behind the condition. Few people seem to realize the dangers of weak, defective and disordered digestion. Health reports do not give it as a cause of death be cause some other disease sets in to work de structive changes, only made possible by the Imperfect digestion, and the death is accredited to them. There are many medicines on the market in tended to correct and improve perverted or Im paired digestion, but none are so safe, so economical, so convenient, so effective, so satis factory, so popular as are Stuart's Dyspepsia Tablets. Whether the dyspepsia is of long standing or is only a case of temporary indiges tion, they give prompt and pronounced relief. Their regular use for a time will cure all forms of gastric insufficiency so that "good digestion will wait on appetite and health on both." By promoting perfect digestion all tissues and structures are better fed and take on healthful activity, the blood becomes rich, the flesh sound and firm, the nerves strong, the eyes bright, the skin clear, the mind alert and cheer ful, and one begins to feel the lust of lifethe joy of mere living.

Last fall I became very much alarmed at some symptoms of heart trouble and came to be lieve there was a sympathetic relation between the tsvo diseases or, rather, that the stomach trouble was the cause of the heart disturbances. I hit upon Stuart's Dyspepsia Tablets for a remedy and invested a dollar and a half for three boxes, which lasted me three months, and I can eat any kind of food I want and have a good, vigorous appetite. Although I am 77 years old, I now feel perfectly well, and, without be ing requested by any one, I make this statement as a compliment to the virtues of Stuart's Dys pepsia Tablets." Henry Kirkpatrick of Lawrence, Mass., says: "Men and women whose occupation precludes an active outdoor life should make it a daily practice to use Stuart's Dyspepsia Tablets after meals. I have done so myself and I know posi tively that I owe my present health and vigor to their daily use. From the time I was 22, when I graduated from school with broken health from overwork, until I was 34 I scarcely knew what it was to be free from stomach weakness. I had no appetite whatever for breakfast, and very little for any other meal. I had acidity and heartburn nearly every day, and sometimes was alarmed by irregularity and palpitation of the heart, but all this gradually disappeared after I began using Stuart's Dyspepsia Tablets, and I can eat my meals with relish and satisfac tion which I had not known since I was a grow ing boy."

S00 ROAD'S GOOD SHOWING SURFACE INDICATIONS UNSATIS FACTORY BU T MISLEADING. October Earnings $802,000 Against Average of $550,000This Offsets Decrease of $41,000 Gross and $64,000 NetSome Great Northern Figures for Comparison. The Soo line reports for October a decrease of $41,000 in gross and of $64,000 in net. At first glance the showing looks decidedly unsatisfactory but on close study there are circum stances of considerable weight that tend to make it look much better than it might. The most important is that it is compared with the record month in the history of the company, namely* October, 1902, when gross earnings reached the remarkable figure of $844,000, or nearly $100,000 above the supposed maximum of the company two years ago. Th e average monthly earnings of the company are not greatly over $550,000. I t is manifest that the record of $802,000 in October is not at all bad. For November the earnings will show over $759,000, or slightly better than last year. For the five months to date the record is but little worse than the excellent record of last year. There does not seem to be much pros pect of a better year on the whole than last and it would not surprise the management at all if the year current should run somewhat behind last year. It is gratifying to note that the net earnings are keeping up relatively bet ter than the gross. Fo r the four months recorded they show a decrease of only $5,000, and official comment would seem to indicate that there is every prospect of this deficiency being wiped out in the coming months. The fact appears to be that the road has not been limited in its expenses by lack of working capital, and has not therefore seen fit to adopt a policy of rigid economy such as appears to be popular with most of the northern roads at the present time. Th e ex penses are still pretty heavy. Th e principal increase is in carrying on the businessconducting transporta tionand is due to the higher cost of labor and material. Maintenance of equipment has also cost more and there is some economy to offset this in the item of maintenance of way. Since the company has charged off half a million a year for the past two years for this purpose it is reasonable to suppose that the work of putting the road in shape is fairly well in hand. On the whole, the results, both gross and net, compare very well with the results on other northwestern roads in the same period. The Great North ern gross results are at hand at the same time. Th e figures show that in November the Great Northern lost $98,000 as compared with last year, while the Soo line made a slight gain. For the five months the Great North ern reports a gain of $350,000, or about 1% per cent, while forth e same period the Soo line also reports a merely nominal gain of .3 per cent. The Milwaukee, North-Western, Wis consin Central all report that their earnings are not quite keeping up the record of last year in the matter of increases over former years, but that they are doing well in spite of this fact. It may be expected that sub sequent statements will reflect a cer tain rigid economy in the operation of all these roads in the shape of re - duced expenses. WHAT'S AT ALTON Explanation of Present Push I s No t Forthcoming. Special to The Journal.' New York, Dec. 10.The steady rise of Alton stock in the Wall street market still lacks official explanation. Those on the inside think the explana tion will not be forthcoming for some little time and that it will come as a surprise when the time arrives. Th e stock is deservedly unpopular with Wall street traders. There is a cur rent maxim on the street that specu lation in this stock never made money for any one but the man that made the market The reason is simply that it is a little stock which has al - ways been handled by very big men . The big men, as usual, made the money and the smaller speculator had hardly a show for his money. The same thing will prove to be true in this case whether the move is merely speculative or not. Mr. Har - riman, who is supposed to preside over the destinies of the road seldom is gen erous in sharing the profits of his deals with the traders who make the market for him by their participation. Messrs. Hawley and Yoakum are this time without doubt acting with the full concurrence and assistance of E . H. Harriman. Mr. Hawley is a Har - riman director and has been an offi cial. Mr. Yoakum is a strong per sonal friend of Mr. Harriman and is associated with Bock Island, whose friendly interest with Harriman will not be disturbed by any deal he may make. The gist of the matter is that those on the inside say Alton is certain to cross 40 and is not unlikely to go to 50 while the outside public takes no interest whatever in the matter, appar ently content to let Alton go where it pleases. TOO BI G A JOB That Laid Ou t for I. C. C. in Cooper Bill, Says Mr. Hill. Speaking of Congressman Cooper's bill to , give the interstate commerce commission power to make rates sub ject to the revision of the courts, James J. Hill, in Chicago yesterday, said: "There are not five men in the. world who could make railroad tariffs fojfcthis entire country that would be just and equitable. Long before they had completed a single tariff they all would have died and commercial con ditions would have so changea" as to make.their work utterly without avail. "The question of railway rates has reached the point where they must necessarily be advanced unless the railway managements can discover new methods of economy in trans portation. I n the main I believe we have reached the limit of economy as well as in the amount of tonnage. I t is plain, therefore, that the price of materials and wages will have to be reduced or railway freights will have to be advanced. Th e rates are about 40 per cent of what they are in Europe, while wages are from two and one-half to four times as high as in Europe. Th e only alternative to an advance in rates is an increase in ton nage, and I cannot see how this is to be done unless we can create new markets for our products."
