The American Stomach
Is a big organ that usually reflects the hab
its of Its owner—for Americans are strange
people at the table. There Is a popular be
lief that the stomach digests everything
that IS swallowed, und this error has led
t> much Indiscretion regarding diet. If
people would try to understand the prin
ciples of digestion they would select food
that would not overwork the stomach. A
perfectly healthy person is not conscious
of a stomach, lor digestion goes on with
out effort or distress and hunger alone re
minds ttjtm of a stomach.

Bread Is called the "staff of life." simply
because It contains all the materials essen

principle food of thu pepole, and stom
ach troubles were not common In those
days. Today wo have a thousand varieties
of food and a hundre d varie ties of stomach
trouble*. Who will say we are not pro
gressive? There are few sufferers from
stomach troubles who would not be relieved
by going back to the simpler foods and se
lecting them according to the needs of tnelr
occupations. Highly spiced, fatty and hot
foods are potent factors In creating stom
ach trouble. Fooil that reeiulres cooking
should be thoroughly cooked and fruits
should be fully ripe. "The vegetarians have

Today is Palm Sunday, and the com
ing work will be Holy week. As if in
anticipation, in society there has been
less than the usual activity, and nearly
nil who have entertained have also
maintained that it was "informal." The 1
card parties have for the most part
been club meetings, and the hostesses
have been Mesdames Frank W. King,
Arthur W. Dyke, N. B. Blackstone, L. W.
Stockwell and Misses Green and Cob
leigh. Miss Houghton entertained the
Daughters of the American Revolution
and the Tuesday Night club has held
Its last dance for the seuson.
Mr. and Mrs. F. W. Burnett, Mr. R. H.
Chudwiek and Count and Countess Yon
Schmidt have been umong the theater
parly givers. Those who have enter
tained with dinners have been Count
and Countess Yon Schmidt, Mr. and
Mrs. Fred T. Grltlith, G. Modini-Wood,
and J. C. Cunningham, Miss Mary Ban
ning and Dr. Paul Bresee; and the
luncheon hostesses were Mesdnmes E.
H. Owen. J. T. Conroy, Herman Baruch,
and G. M. North.
A very delightful dinner was that
given Thursday evening by Mr. and Mrs
Charles Modini-Wood in their home,
607 South Pearl street, as a farewell to
Mr. and Mrs. John F. Francis, who are
to leave for Europe Easter Monday. The
dining room decorations were of white
and pink. Dong stemmed roses were
massed on buffet and mantelpiece, and
the table was a masterpiece. Pendant
from the center chandelier to the four
corners of the table, and again inter
secting the sides midway were streamers
of pink satin ribbon gleaming through
the delicate tracery of maidenhair fern;
bows nnd loops of the ribbon and clus
ters of pink carnations held the stream
ers in place. In the center of the table,
under the chandelier, was a full-rigged
ship, made entirely of white and pink
sweet peati, fronds of fern and smilax,
with a pendent of pink ribbon bearing
the words, "Bon Voyage." Scattered
over the surface of the snowy damask
were beautiful pink carnations and
more ferns, and the exquisite place cards
were In the form of a horseshoe, made of
cream satin and decorated with flower
blossoms in oils, each with a different
design; the back of rough paper cor
responding in ti.it to the color of the
flower and tied with knots of baby rib
bon, also of the same shade.
Catarrh of the Stomach
* This Is one of the most common affections
of the stomach and miiy he from an exten
sion downwards of catarrh of the throat,
or It may arise from catarrhal (terms car
ried In with the food. The symptoms are:
Nausea on arising In'the morning, some
times vomiting; belching of gas, water
brash; there fs a dlzziie ss. acoated tongue
audi constipation; sometimes a thi-lt slime
Is spat up: there is pain after eating, with
headache ami bloating, sour stomach, pal
pitation of the heart often occurs; some
times v sensation of weight on the stomach
Is felt and breathing M difficult.
These are the prominent symptoms of
stomneh disease due to catarrh, and If not
arrested la time the disease extends to the
bowels, liver, kidneys and rectum.
Is another common trouble, especially In
women. This bloating comes on after
meals, and Is due to fermentation of the
food with formation of gas. Constipation
i» usually present and nervous disorders
quickly come on. The specialist of the
Kngllsh anu Herman Specialists never fails
to permanently cure this trouble.
This form of stomach trouble is met In
people of a highly nervous temperament.
The nervous debility extends to the stom
ach and Impairs the nerves of digestion.
People who suffer from this form of gastric
trouble have much pain over the stomach
and sometimes palpitation of the heart
occurs and Is very alarming. The great
Irritability of this class of sufferers Is due
entirely to this nervous turmoil constantly
going on In the stomach.
This condition is one tjf the most distress
ing of all stomach troubles. It Is caused by
a (low of bile Into the stomach owing to
some obstruction In the bile channels. Ca
tarrh of the bile ducts is one of the most
common causes of this complaint. The bile
on entering the stomach disturbs the di
gestive functions and upsets things gen
erally. This bile must be carried oft and
a brisk purgativo should be used at once.
The great value of purgatives In all stom
ach, liver and bowel troubles Is their power
to cleanse out the channels and give na
ture a chance to restore normal conditions.

How StqmtcV Troubles Are Cured
By the and Merman Expert Specialists
The first step In the cure of diseases of the
stomach is to make a thorough examina
tion of the stomach and neighboring or
gans', to see that the trouble is not due to
tumors, growths or complications from
other organs. Your family physician may
overlook this important first step, but the
English and German Expert Specialists
never do. Their methods are thorough
from first to last.
The next step, having found that the
trouble Is all In the stomach, is to correct
all errors in-diet. This Is accomplished by
noting the action of the different foods.
Whether they sour or ferment or distress
the stomach. And also noting the condi
tion of the food as It leaves the rectum.
Food passing through undigested Indicates
serious stomach trouble.
The next step In the cure of stomach trou
ble is to bring the organ- and its digestive
power Into full action. Everything that
h nders the free action must be removed.
The catarrhal scum that lines its walls, the
little plugs of mucous and matter that stop
up the mouthß uf the glands which secrete
the gastric juice, must all be removed and
carried off, and the membrane must be
healed and cured of Its Inflamed character.
Here la where the skillful specialist comes
to your aid. He understands every feature
of this complicated organ, and he goes at
It like a master conscious of his power to
heal It. The remedies are now applied to
the naked walls of the stomach. Each lit
tle gastric follicle Is healed and toned up,
and the lining membrane of the stomach It
self Is healed and soothed back to Its na
tural condition. It's a new organ now,
ready for a meal, which it attacks with a
vim and relish that means nothing but per
Can be cured If you go to a specialist who
understands this wonderful organ and Its
Ills and ailments. Much has been left un
written here regarding this subject, but
> enough has been written to help sufferers
find a way of relief, and, after all, that's
what we are striving after—relief, content,
happiness, no matter whence it's source.
If your stomach troubles you come and
talk to the stomach specialist of the Eng
lish and German Expert Specialists. It
won't cost you a cent to advise with them.

THE HOUSE OF STEINWAY
The Modern Atlas of the Entira
The firm of Stelnway & Sons have done
more during thii long period of trade de
pression to hold up the spirits of the mutlo
trade than any half dozen houses put to
gether. They have set an example that
others might emulate with exceeding
profit to themselves. It has not only been
line upon line and precept upon precept
with them, but they havo practiced what
they preached-. In all the dark hours of
the many months that distressed the trade
of the nation, the house of Stelnway A
Sons never once lost courage. They never
once exhibited any signs of fear. They
never onco weakened' in the matter of
prices, nor did they once ever so much as
, think of sacrificing tlio dignity or the
• quality of their product. In this way they
| Inspired hope and bravery Into the bosom*
- of many a weaker manufacturer. The
house of Stelnway never forgot that they
i make a piano that commands the admlra«
j tlon of the civilized world. And what has
| been the result? Every American piano*
l maker has a greater admiration, for the
■ Stelnway piano than he ever had before.
• Every American planomtiker has a greater
respect for the house of Stelnway & i
than before. Each ono realizes that I ,
did a vast deal for the trade; tha,t
kept up Its morale and that perhap if
Stelnway & Sons had for a time bee
victims of the panicky feeling a gen al
demoralization of tho music trade,
ally of the piano industry, would have 1
the outcome. It Is a great thing for a hi -
to be generally recognised as the bul»
of the trade, and Stelnway ft Sons n us
feel that they have been repaid for
wise course that they pursued during V ese
years of trade disturbance.—Chicago Iu
