Do You Fael Snug and Comfortable
Around Your Waist Line After a
., Hearty Meal? -s
Did your last meal taste deliclously
i" good to you, and did you eat all you
wanted? Could you have patted your
rotundity in glee and felt proud of
your appetite and of your good strong
stomach Do you feel rosy now be
cause your last meal gave you no in
v: convenience whatever? If not, you
ihave dyspepsia in some form, and
probably never realized It.
If you have the least trouble in your
stomach after eating, not matter how
little or how much you eat, there is
.trouble brewing and you must correct
it at once.
Most all stomach troubles come from
poor, weak, scanty gastric Juice, that
precious liquid which ought to turn
your food into rich, red blood,
If you have nausea, your gastrio
juice is weak. If you have sour rls
Jngs or beichlngs, your food -is fer
mentlng your gastric juice 1B weak.
If you have loss of appetite, your gas
tric juice is weak. If you have a
bloaty feeling of aversion to food, your
gastric Juice is weak.
You need something in your stom
ach to supply the gastric juice which1
"vis scanty, and to give power to the
weak gastric juice. Stuart's Dyspep
sia Tablets do this very thing.
Now think—one grain of one of the
ingredients of these wonderful little
tablets digests 0,000 grains of food.
They are several times more powerful
than the gastric juice in a good, strong,
powerful stomach. They actually di
getet your food for you. Besides, they
increase the flow of gastric Juice, just
what you need to get all the good pos
sible out of everything you eat. You
•will never have- that "lump of lead" in
your stomach nor any other, stomach
»trouble after taking Stuart's Dyspep
sia Tablets. Then everything you eat
'will be digested, It will give 'you
strength, vim, energy and a rosy dis
position. You'll feel good all around
your waist line after every meal and

Chinaman, Who, as a Coolie Grew
to be Multi-Millionaire.
Honolulu, Sept. 28.—News Jms'been
received here that Ah Fong. the Chi
nese capitalist, who made $30,000,000
in the Hawaiian Islands ami myster.
iousljj disappeared in 1892, died in
China on Sept, 25.
Wing Ah Fong, a Chinese coolie,
landed at Honolulu in 1858. While hla
companion immigrants went out to
work on the plimtdtions, Ah Fong set
up as a Chinese merchant. He import
ed from China opium and other lux«
uries, which he spld to his countrymen
at prices whloh enabled him soon to
become the foremo»t Chinese man of
business in the Hawaiian islands.
Ah Fong's place of business was oh
the water front. For a neighbor he
bad a half English, half Portuguese
ex-sallor named Fayerweather, who
had married a native Kanaka beauty,
and, like Ah Fong, was struggling to
build up a fortune. Fayerweather ha4
one daughter, whom he. had placed as
a companion in one of the missionary
Mixture ©f Four Bloods. ,•
The daughter, when barely years
old—which means maturity in that
balmy climatfe—had a wild and luxuri
ant beauty, uniting ine chief charms
of the women of the three countries
represented in her ancestry—'England,
Portugal and Hawaii. Ah Fong mads
this girl his wife.
Ah Fong became the confidant of old
King Kal&kaua. He became a great
importer. He controlled the coolie
market and the opium trade. He made
large investments in real estate and
piled million on million.
Thirteen Beautiful Daughters
Meantime his wife had presented
ihlm with fifteen children, thirteen girls
and two boys. The girls became fam
ous the world around. They were edu
cated in the United States and in Eu
rope. They woro Parisian frocks. Sev
en of them were black eyed, raven
haired girls. The other six were blond,
with blue eyes and dark eyelashes and
hair. Seven of the sisters have their
father's tall stature, but the rest are
petite figures. They have a pronounc
ed suggestion of Chinese almond
shaped eyes, and nearly every one of
them lias the mother's olive complex
ion and soft, easy mode of speech. |gi

Pen and ink were not necessary to

Only those who knew his tlififtiiwls
and frugality can appreciate his anger
when he once discovered several small
boys stealing the Incomparable Cutter

his wrath over the theft he did not
forget his gift of poesy, but thundered

debilitated to stand the strain to which
it was being subjected, and just as Mr.
Cutter was passing a field in which

From amid the wreckage of the old

When Mr. Cutter accompanied the
famous Innocents Abroad he amused
the travelers during the'journey by
reading nightly epics on anything that
had happened since the last effusion,
from peeling potatoes to a storm at
sea. Twain offers .this sample of tha
poet at his best:

And time will wait for none, nor for us,
One Hundred Poems on -a Coach.
This is one of the few examples of
the poet's verse in which the verbs are
nqt preceded by the vord "did." He
has dedicated verses to every man of
prominence with whom he has come in
contact, and there were few in his time
that he did not meet. Recently he
wrote thirty stanzas about Mrs. Mac
kay's election to the Roslyn school
board. He wrote 100 separate "poems"
on the subject of George Washington's
coach, which he owned.

pnn when young Cutter fell in lov&
with a pretty girl of the neighborhood,
named Emmaline Allen. Because the
young man had preferred the sea to
the acres that he had inherited and had
shipped on a sound trading sloop,
there was just enough opposition to
"that sailor," even if he were wealthy,
from Miss Allen's family to spur the
troubled lovers on. The young couple
were married at last, however, but Mrs.

since, the old poet has revered her

"A pretty bit of grazing land," h«
was saying to the sheriff as he looked
out over the level prairie, dotted her*

The sheriff, a brawny, blue shirted
young fellow of thirty, with unkempt
hair and mustache, uncrossed his boot
ed logs, straightened out one of them(
pushed hjs hand deep into the pocket
of his corduroy trousers and yawped.
As his coat was thrust back with th«
movement the butt of his 44 callbei
"gua" might be 6eeu. Without reply

and studied It absently.

ucd sheepishly and threw it at him.
"Harder harder!" said the young
lawyer cheerily. "That's no way to
pitch a ball, "throw it In this way."
And the' boy's hands were scorched a»
he caught the return.
"Say, kin you pitch a curve?", h«
asked. "Let's see you do it."
"All right," said Hardy, rising good
naturedly and taking off his coat
"Here you go. Hold on," he added.
"You couldn't catch It If I did. Here,
Mr. Hackett go out there and let
throw you a few curves."
The others laughed at this, for Hack'

feet two in height and weighing 250
pounds. He had a mass of crisp black

forceful and shrewd in his profession,
deliberate, of speech and anything but

junior counsel, Blake, a somewhat
lanky, powerfully built westerner, ris
ing and depositing bis rough brown
sack coat beside Hardy's.
"Qee, you've got muscje!" he added,
rubbing his hands after the first pass.
"Hurray!"yelled the small boy. "Thai

Clarence!" he cried in worahipful ad
"Wouldn't mind a little of that exer
cise myself," said the judge, rising in
terestedly and hesitating on the steps.
"Why not have a little game while
we are waiting?" said Hardy* half jok
ingly. "Come on, sheriff!"
Moved by a common impulse the lit
tle group brightened up, threw away
their cigar ends and moved half apolo
getically Into the sandy square, At the
left of the courthouse and adjoining It
was a small open field of well trodden,
dusty grass, where a scratch ball game
was played 6ccasionally and where
horses were tethered during court. One
of the small boys was dispatched for a
suitable bat and ball apd a catcher's
glove, antj by the time the sides were
arranged he came racing back with
them, highly excited, followed by sev
eral other small boys.
No one had the slightest Idea of be
ing drawn into a game when he left
the steps, but the reaction had worked
insidiously. The trial bad been a pae
ticularly exciting one, and those who
had followed it were tired after the
three days' strain in the ill ventilated
courtroom. The sympathies of all had
undoubtedly been #lth the prisoner, al
though the state bad been vigorous in
Its prosecution and the judge had con
scientiously done his duty. Murder
had been committed at Jamestown
Creek a few months previously, though
a change of venue had been obtained
to Fort Morton, the prisoner's own
town. Copperthwait bad always been
a quiet, law abiding ranchman. He
was under thirty years of age, big,
broad shoukleFed and swarthy, diffi
dent in manner and somewhat slow of
spe«*ch. though he had been slowly and
thoroughly angered in a quarrel over a
bunch of cattle. Six or eight steers
had been branded twice, one mark
over the other, and the dispute arose
over this. Duke, the victim of the
shooting, had borne a bad reputation,
and the village street was usually more
or less uneasy during his infrequent
visits. He had killed his map and had
been known to boast of it several times
fn Flynn's saloon, After this last quar
rel he had sworn to shoot Copperthwait
on sight The quarrel bad occurred in
the morning. That afternoon Copper
thwait bad just left the Eagle hotel to
mount bis mustang tied t»tbe IMching
post in front, when Duke b«ppened to
turn ttie corner.
"Here comes Duke!" a bystander ex
clalnKd. OoDerttaralt sorted -Mi
caught sight or Ills adversary. Dukb
stopped short and put his baud behind
him, and Copperthwait, quick a» a
fiush, fired once and put bullet be
tween Duke's eyes. He had offered uo
resistance to arrest and! now was in
the rough little Jail near by while the
twelve good men and true deliberated
in the hot back room under the tin roof
of the courthouse.
"I guess my hands are a little too
soft to play," said the Judge good na
turedly, feeling a qualm as to the ap
propriateness of his Joining actively in
the sport, "but I'll he umpire
The two teams were quickly formed,
the Comanches ugainst the Sknx. The
Sioux Avon the toss and took the field,
and the Comanches were struck out In
one-two-tbree order. When the sides
changed, Hardy, the prosecuting attor
ney, took the box, and Hlnko, the Jun
ior counsel for the defense, caught him.
After much urglug the judge had con
sented to preside over first base, since
Mr. Hackett had positively refused to
play and had been made umpire by
general acclaim. As soon aa his honor
found himself coat less and on the field
he threw himself Into the battle with
the greatest enthusiasm.
There was many, an evidence af
"softness" in the condition of the play-
He fired once and put a tfullen between
ers and a noticeable, tendency to let
swift balls go by rather than grapple
them with fingers unused to the hard
impact. Wild throws to bases were
not infrequent, and in consequence
there were much base stealing and hi
larious sarcasm from the players on
both teams. The official relations of
these mep were for the time lost sight
of. They were merely healthy, enthu
siastic Americans, feeling the joy of
tingling blood in their veins, the zest
of friendly competition and of physical
The runs were frequent apd the er
rors numerous, and at th£ end of the
third inning so many bands were sore
and so many arms growing stiff that it
w&s mutually decided by the teams to
call the next inalng the last. The score
stood eleven runs for the Comanches
(the team made up of Judge Hillier,

We've only got to hold 'em down this
Inning, and we'll beat 'em easy.
There's one out already."
Copperthwait looked uncertainly at
the deputy, then at the judge, and
quickly pulled oft hla c««t and stepped
to the base. His face showed clearly
