LET TOUB STOMACH HATE ITS
01VX WAY
Do Not Try to Drive and Force It to
"Work When It U-Xot Able or Yon
Will Suffer All the More/'
You can not treat, your stomach as
some men treat a balky horse; force,
drive or even starve It into doing Vork
at which it rebels. The stomach is a
patient and faithful servant and will
stand much abuse . and ill-treatment
before it "balks." but when it does you
had better go slow with it and not at-
tempt to maJte it work. Some people
have the mistaken idea that they can
make their- stomachs workf by starv-
ing themselves. They might cure the
stomach that way, -but it would take
so long that they would have no use
for a stomach when they got through.
The sensible way out of th« difficulty
is to let the/stomach rest if it wants to
and employ \u25a0 a substitute to do its
work.
Stuart's Dyspepsia Tablets will do
the work; of your stomach for you and
digest your food just as your stomach
used to when it was well. You can
prove this by putting your food in a
glass jar with one of the tablets and
sufficient water and- you will see the
food digested In just the same time as
the digestive fluids < of the: stomach
would do it. . That will satisfy your
mind. Now, ' to satisfy, both your
mind and body take one of Stuart's
Dyspepsia Tablets after eating— eat all
and what you want— and you will feel
in your mind that your jfood is being
digested because you will feel no dis-
turbance or weight in your stomach;
in fact, you will forget all about hav-;
Ing a stomach., just -as. you did when
you were a healthy boy or girl.
Stuart's Dyspepsia Tablets act in a
natural way because they contain only
the natural elements of the gastric
juices and other digestive fluids of the
stomach. It makes no difference what
condition the stomach ls/'in, they go
| right- ahead of their own accord and
Ido their work. Theyknqw their busi-
"ness and surrounding conditions do not
influence them In the least. They thus
relieve the weak stomach of all its
burdens and give it its much-needed
rest and permit it to become strong
and health}'. '
Stuart's Dyspepsia Tablets are for
sale by all druggists at- 50 cents a box.
They are so well known and their
popularity Is so great that a druggist
would as soon think of being out of
alcohol or, quinlije as of them. In fact,
physicians are' prescribing them all
over the land, and if your own: doctor
is real honest with ypu.'he will tell
you frankly that there is 'nothing on
earth- so - good • for .dyspepsia as
Stuart's' Dyspepsia Tablets. \u25a0 '
