STUART'S DYSPEPSIA TABLETS A
There Is such a thins; as forbearance
censing to be a virtue even in the case of
one's tomach. Ther Is no question but
that some stomarhs will stand a great
deal more -near and tear and abuse than
others, but thej" all have their limit, and
when that limit Is reached the stomach
must be reckoned with as sure as fate.
The best way. and really the only effect
ive way, to treat your stomach when It
rebels Is to employ a substitute to do Its
work. This will Rive the weakened and
worn-out organ an opportunity to rest and
regain its strength and health.
Stuart's Dyspepsia Tablets relieve the
stomach of its work by taking up the
work and doing it just as ono set or shift
of workmen relieves another. They act
ually digest the food in Just the same
manner and just the same time as the dl-i-estlve
fluids of a sound stomach do. In
fact, when dissolved in the stomach they
are digestive fluids, for they contain ex
ctly the same constituents and elements
rs the gastric juice and other digestive
fluids of the stomach. Xo matter what
the condition of the stomach Is their
work Is just the same. They work in their

pangs of dyniepsla for ten years. I tried

In fact, surroundings and conditions never

A prominent Detroit physician says: "I

IKEr CORE DYSPEPSII REGARDLESS OF POLITICS
The prominent politicians of the United
States, who. as delegates, make up the
great national political conventions,- are
subjected to many demands that tell on
health. They must be "good fellows" to
a certain extent. They must attend
banquets, late dinners, and mix with
"the boys" more or less. These things
are required and have been required
of them ever since they entered poli
ties, and these things sooner or later
tell on health and play havoc with the
stomach and Its functions; for politicians,
like all other men. have stomachs. To re
lieve the-bad effects produced by these
demands, the politicians of the country,
both great and small, have all united In
the use of Stuart's Dyspepsia Tablets.
They find Just like everyone else who
tries them finds that there Is- nothing in
the w6rld that equals this remedy in af
fording immediate relief and effecting per
manent cures for indigestion, -dyspepsia,'
and bad stomachs.
PERFECT, WILLING SUBSTITUTE.
Stuait's Dyspepsia Tablets relieve the
stomach of its work, and permit that or
gan to rest and regain its health and
strength. They contain all the essential
ingredients that enter into the digestive
fluids and secretions of the stomach, and
they actually take up the work and do it
just as a healthy, sound stomach would.
By this means a man can go right
ahead with hl work, and eat enough to
keep him In proper working condition. His
system is not deprived of Its necessary
nourishment, as It Is In the case of the
"starvation cure" or the employment of
some of.the first-class chicken foods now
on the market. Starvation, even If it
were a good thing, could not be continued
long enough to effect a cure: for a disor
dered and worn-out stomnch Is not going

Stuart's Dyspepsia Tablets act naturally
because they contain natural digestives.
The principal component parts are aseptic
pepsin, malt diastase and other ingredi
ents: with like properties that do the work
regardless of the condition of the stom
ach. There Is no unnatural or violent
disturbance of the digestive organs as the
result of their action. In fact, the exist
ence of the stomach is entirely forgotten
as soon as they have had time to begin
their operations. They also possess very
curative and healing properties, and assist
the stomach in getting well, while reliev
ing It of Its work. They perform the du
ties of both nurse and physician.
Stuart's Dyspepsia Tablets are for sale
by all druggists at 50 cents a box, ami
there is very little danger of any druggist
trying to fcII you something else in its
place that Is "just as good." They are so
well established and have done so much
good In the world that their name has be
come a household word; so the usual
warning. "Accept no substitute." is unnec

Object tci I'se of Name in Xewspn
pers In Connection AVIth Accident.
East St. I-ouls physicians are enjoying
an argument ns to whether their code of
professional ethi'-s permits them to allow
their names to be used in newspapers in
reports of accidents or operations.
At the last meeting of the East St. Louis
Medical Society a resolution was Intro
duced by one of the doctors requesting the
reporters of East St. Louis to omit the
names or physicians who may be called in
accident cases or who perform operations.
There are two sides to the controversy,
and it is believed that It will be taken up
at length at the meeting of the Medical
Society next Monday night. Several of the
physicians Interviewed yesterday were
sarcastic In talking of the resolution. One
stated that It was not unethical for the
reporters to use the name of the doctor
who attended an accident case or an opera
tion the news value of which was worth
reporting In the newspaper.
He stated that he believed that It was
news to the people who desired to know. In
addition to the details of the accident, the
name of the doctor who was called in on
the case. He believed that the fact that
the physician's name was used would spur
him on to greater efforts to secure the
complete recovery of his patient than If
his name had not been mentioned.
One of the physicians who urged the
passage of the resolution said that he un
derstood that some of the doctors of the
Utv had gone out of their way to get their
names In the papers, and he believed that
it was advertising, and as such was un
ethical. Flremnn Murpliy Dend.

The encounter occurred In the squad
room of the substation of the Sixth Po

Caulev had just entered the station to
report off duty for the day. Without any

Sergeant Monahan saw the attack and
tried to restrain the violent policeman.
Cauley drew hit pocketknlfe and lunged
at his superior officer, who clinched.
Berkerer also closed, and the three men
struggled all over the room for five min

combined strength of tho two officers
proved too much for him.
When he was overpowered he was taken
to the City Hospital In the ambulance. A
hurried examination showed that his mind
was temporarily deranged. He was

The suddenness of the affliction cannot
be accounted for by his associates, who

NOT YET FINISHED,
Sharp Division on Tarty Lines
Expected When Measure
Comes Up in House.
Washington, March 13. Sharp division
on party line": over an omnibus joint state
hood bill low appears to be the certain
result of the fight over the proposition in
he House. The situation is such that, in
all probability, such a bill would pass the
House, but would meet the equivalent of
defeat In the Senate.
This development became apparent yes
terday when the House Committee on
States and Territories resolved to appoint
a subcommittee, directing it to draw a

"Your side proposes to draw this bill to
suit yourselves, regardless of the minority,
does it not?"
"That's about it," was the reply.
Tho Republican members demand union
for Oklahoma nnd Indian Territory, and
for Arizona and New Mexico, the four to
be admitted as two States in one bill. I
The Democrats will compromle on th
Joint admission of Oklahoma and the In
dian Territory, but will never consent to
Jointure or New- Mexico and Arizona.
Every" resource at the command of the
Democratic strength will be exerted In be
half of the minority's contention In this
matter. It is easily within the possibilities
that the filibustering tactics of the last
session will again he undertaken.
Senntor Quay, who defeated statehood
legislation at the last session, has not
taken any pronounced position as yet. Con
sequently the Senate's probable complex
ion cannot be foretold with any accuracyj
The predominant opinion is. however,
that a Joint omnlbuft bill can pass upon
a party vote In the upper house, but that
action will be deferred until the next elec
tion, and hence until the next session.
If this be the programme a statehood
bill probably will pass the House, and
then be allowed to slumber among the
multitudes of lost, dead or forgotten meas
ures, way down on the Senate calendar.
