Wild Pirate, tho hot favorite, was Eecond.
Varro, tho second choice, was third. The
winner was not generally regarded as a
contender in the race, and was held us
high as 15 to 1 In some books.
The long w inter meeting of the Crescent
City Jockey Club came to an end this aft
ernoon with the running of tho llfth

been made to order it could not have been
more delightful. It was a perfect day In
every respect and added greatly to the en
joyment of the exceedingly large crowd
which watched tho sport from the grand
stand and the infield.
For the first time this winter, tho field
was crowded with vehicles of all descrip

THEORIES ABOUT FOOD.
Also a. Few Facts on. tbe Same Snojeet.
We hear much nowadays about health
foods and hygienic living, about vegetarian
ism and many other fads along the sama
Restaurants may bo found in the large
cities where no meat, pastry or coffee is .
served, and the food crank is In his ninrv-
end arguments and theories galore advanced
to prove tnar. meat was never intended for
human stomachs, and almost make us be
lieve that our sturdy ancestors who lived
fourscore years in robust health on roast
beef, pork and mutton must have been,
grossly ignorant oi ine laws or neaitn.
Our forefathers had other things to dm
than formulate theories about the food they
ate. Ji niiiui weituiuc wua extenueu to an'
kind from bacon to acorns. A
A healthy aDDetlte and common sense am
excellent guides to follow in matters of
diet, and a mixed diet of grains, fruits and
meats Is undoubtedly the best.
As compared with grains and vegetables,
meat furnishes tho most nutriment In n.
highly concentrated form and la digested
and assimilated more quickly than vege
tables and grains.
Dr. Julius Remmson on this subject says:
"Nervous persons, people run down in
health and of. low vitality should eat meat
and plenty of it. If the digestion 13 too
feeble at first. It may be easily ivurectea
by the regular use of Stuart's Dyspepsia
Tablets after each meal. Two of these ex
cellent tablets taken after dinner will di
gest several thousand grains of meat, eggs
or other animal food In three hours, nnd no
matter how weak the stomach may be. no
trouble will be experienced If n. remiltr
1 practteo Is made of using Stuart's Dyspep
sia xaDieis. ueuiuae mey supply tno pepsin
and diastase necessary to perfect digestion,
and every form of indigestion will be over
come by their use.
That large class of people who come un
der the head of nervous dyspeptics should
eat plenty of meat and insure Its proper
digestion by the dally use of a safe, harm
less digestive medicine like Stuart's Dys
pepsia Tablets, composed of the natural
digestive principles, pepsin, diastase. fruR,
acids and salts, which actually perform thS
work ot digestion. Cheap cathartic medi
cines, masquerading under the name of
dyspepsia cures, are useless for Indiges
tion, as they have absolutely no effect upon
the actual digestion of food.
Dyspepsia In all its many forms Is simply
a failure of the stomach to digest' food and
the sensible way to solve the riddle and
cure tbe dyspepsia Is to make dally use at
meal time of a preparation like Stuart's
Dyspepsia Tablets, which is endorsed by
the medical profession and known to con
tain active digestive principles.
AH druggists sell Stuart's Dyspepsia Tabi
lets at 50c for full treatment.
