Sick Headache
And Indigestion
The Former is Very Frequently Caused
By the Other.
The pneumo-gastric nerve connects'
the stomach region directly with the
brain, and when the stomach is out of
order the head is almost certain to be
affected through reflex or sympathetic
nervous irritation.
The headache of dyspepsia aud indi
gestion is of every variety from the
dullest and least defined to the most
acute pain. Sometimes the whole mass
of the brain seems racked with an
guish; at others, the ache is confined
to the back or front part of the head.
The first form is usually of a confused
character, and is often accompanied by
dimness of vision, and a mild vertigo,
or so-called “rush of blood to the
head.’’ The victims of this symptom
complain of a “swimming” or “light
ness” in the head, and dizziness, or a
sensation of motion while the body is
still, and specks, or flashes of light be
fore the eyes.
Persons subject to indigestion and
other forms of stomach trouble are very
frequent sufferers from headache, and
in numerous cases a sick headache is
the only noticeable symptom of indiges
tion present; in others, there are stom
ach manifestations as well.
The majority of people regard this
headache as a separate disease, instead
of a symptom of stomach-disease, which
it usually is; and they attempt to treat
it separately, and make the mistake of
endeavoring to obtain relief through
the use of headache powders, tablets,
pills and seltzers, the use of which is
extremely dangerous, as many of them
contain such powerful depressent drugs
as acetanilid, phenacetine, antipyrine,
caffeine, etc., which depress the heart,
brain and nerve centers, and lower ar
terial pressure; and many a person
with a weak heart, has become danger
ously- ill shortly after taking one of
those headache remedies. They also
interfere with the digestive processes,
and actually make the dyspepsia worse
than before.
Tn order to get rid of the'headache
of indigestion—and most headaches are
caused by stomach trouble—one should
endeavor to reach and retnove the
cause, and the headache effect will soon 1
be relieved.
do not cure the symptoms; they cure ,
the cause of the headache, which per
manently removes the symptoms. They
digest every atom of food in the stom
ach, cure all forms of stomach trouble,
and the headache, and every other dis
agreeable symptom and untoward ef- j
feet is quickly gotton rid of. j
Don’t make the mistake of trying j
to cure your dyspeptic or nervous head- ]
ache through the use of headache pow- i
ders. tablets, etc. Use common sense,
good judgment, and one or two of Stu- <
art’s Dyspepsia Tablets, and you will 1
be agreeably surprised at the rapidity ]
with which the headache will be re- t
Jieved and cured simultaneously with ]
the relief and cure of the stomach dis- t
turbance. t

Policemen Will Present Petition
to City Council to Change
System of Paying Them,
The polieomoa of Ban Antonio want
to be paid twice n month. A petition
aigned by every member of the depart
ment will, in all probability, be filed
with the <ity council within the next
Id days, requesting that instead of be
ing given their aalary once a ‘month,
they be paid every IS days.
The movement to receive aalary war
ranta every two weeka han been under
way for some time. It ia now prncti
rally certain that the petition will be
circulated for signatures and then pic*
seated to the executive department of
the eity for action.
It is'because they are forced to pay
aa additional 10 per eeat on everything
they buy on credit, as they are forced
to do with the Monthly payment sys
tem, that the police officer* desire the
“ghost” to walk more frequently.
“If we succeed with our petition,”
said a member of the department to
day, “it.will mean much to us. We
will be able to save that 10 per eent
of onr aalary that we are aow compell
ed to give away simply in order to se
cure the necessities of life.
“The every 30 days pay system makes
it necessary that we purchase most of
our food, clothing and other absolute
ly necessary incidentals on credit aad
when a credit customer eaters a place
he must take what die geta or get none
nt all. If we could get on a cash basis
we could demand better quality and
place that 10 per cent credit charge to
our own benefit.

result of the explosion of firedamp,
eighteen bodies have been recovered
today. There is no fire in the mine.
It is expected work will be resumed in

Charged with having engaged in an
affray at 11:30 o’clock last night in an
East Houston street saloon, two white
men answering to the names of J. A.
Brown and Phillip Clark appeared be
fore Judge Buekley in the corporation
court this morning, with the result
that Brown was fined $lO. The case
against Clark was dismissed.
Clark was badly bruised about the
face and claimed that he had been as
saulted unjustly and without provoca
tion and if he did any fighting it was
in self-defense.
“I hate to say so, but the trouble
came about because I am a Britisher
and I believe there was some jealousy
behind the attack.” testified Clark.
Brown testified he was an American,
entered a plea of guilty, gave no testi
mony and paid his fine.

Fing, the white child rescued almost
from the grave and cared for during
the last four days by Maric Fing, a
negress, has been given into the cus
tody of her mother, Mrs. Charles Back

child whom she had mourned as dead
since the time of birth was alive and
had grown into a healthy, beautiful
little girl.
When Judge Lindsey, in the juvenile

Marguerite screamed and begged to be
allowed to stay with the negress.
The mother is given custody of the
child only as a guardian and must pay
the negress $5OO as recompense for the

Although Platt Gildersleeve, a well
digger from Northport, who is at the
head of a gang of men digging hope

there was not a chance that the young

Gilson Gardner’s articles about irri
gated lands and how the settlers are
winning homes.
By Gilson Gardner.
Huntley, Mouh, Oct. 6.—A new set
tler arrived on the same train with me
—his name the unusual one of Smith.
We both registered at the Huntley ho
tel. I decided to find out al) about Idm.
It might be of interest to other people
who think about becoming settlers on
government irrigation land.
“Why do you come here from South
ern California?” I asked. It seemed
strange that any one should leave the
dreamland of irrigation farming to
come to Montana’s winters with their
25 degrees below zero.
“Takes too much money in that part
of the country,” replied Smith.
“You consider this a better chance
for a poor man?”
“I do.”
T found that Smith had come origin
ally from the east. He had done office ■
work first, but finally had drifted to |
Los Angeles, where he had, fof several I
vears. been a motorman. He had a wife
and one child. They had saved, by very I
careful living, $l5OO. Neither Smith nor
his wife had ever farmed, or even lived
on a farm.
“Well, I have filed on my land,”
said Smith, next time I saw him.
That decided it. The die was cast.
“What next?” I asked.
“Trying to decide whether to go out. ■
and live on the land this fall and win- I
ter.” said Smith.
The ex-motorman did not look very '
strong. He was thin, about 30 years
of age, and smoked a big, droopy pipe.
‘ The alternative was to pay railroad
fare back home and wait for spring.
“I could be digging out sage brush.” >
said Smith, “and getting ready to get i
a crop in next spring, or back home 11

could bo earning wages. T guess it’s a
toss up.”
T talked with Smith about the out
look. Why had he done iI.’ What did
lie hope to accomplish? His ausweis
summed up the case about like this:
He might, go on indefinitely working
as a motorman, and, barring sickness,
save a little each month. But what
they saved never would make them in
dependent. They could not even save
enough to buy a home. I'.aaih J car ex
penses were getting n ore, and the in
come staved the same. What were they
going to'do about it? -lust drift tin
til misfortune, sickness or age came
along? ... .
No. This government irrigation nusi
ness looked better. On this Huntley
project, up in Montana, the slsoo|
। would lay the foundation of an invest-;
: ment which in a few .years ought to
place the Smith family beyond the
reach of want. That’s the way it
looked to him.
This is how he figured it: With
their $l5OO savings they could make
the first payments on a 40-acre irri
gated farm, and pull through the first
pioneer stages of learning the game
and getting started. The actual pay
ment, and filing costs on the land the
first year would be about $2OO. Then ■
a tiny house would cost $2OO more. ।
With the rest lie could buy a team of
horses, a plow and harrow and a few j
Other absolutely necessary tools, togeth-i
er with seed, fence wire and posts.
The rest of the money would be used
up in buying fuel and food until the
first crops were marketed.
All this would.mean bard work and
cconomical living. Smith wondered how
Mrs. B. would like the country and the
prospect when she saw it.
But the first year’s crop would fur
nish money for" the next payment on
the land and for the living expenses of j
the following year.
That first year’s crop! That is the '
important thing to the man who has I
staked his all. This year there was a
terrible hail storm in August. The
stones beat down the oats, thrashed out
the potatoes, shredded the sugar beets
and brought dismay and despair to I
many a poor settler who was reiving on j
that crop to carry him through the
coming winter.
But the potatoes earn" up; and so did
the beets, and some of the oats. And
the settlers will pull through some
how. But grandchildren will, no doubt,
hear about that terrible hail storm of
1901), when grandfather was getting
his start.
Smith expects to put in potatoes,
alfalfa, sugar beets and oats his first
year. Of course be will grow some
vegetables for his table and perhaps
some cucumbers for the dill pickle fac
tory. One man got $125 an acre by
growing cucumbers.
“After the first or so,” said Smith,
“it ought to be pretty clear sailing,
and after five years the place will bo
under enough cultivation so that we
will have ouf living and be pretty sure |
of $lOOO or $l2OO a year to save. I:
don’t say anything about what we I
might do with orchard crops. Just |
holding down to the ordinary crops we I
would have a good living and moj-e in
the bank at the year ’s end than we j
could possibly have saving out of a I
motorman’s salary.
“And all the time,” Smith went on,
“the farm is getting to be more valu
able. That is all capital: all to the'
good. And there's no danger of wages I
stopping —no strikes or anything of j
that sort. It's a good, healthy, open-1
air life. Plenty to eat and drink ami .
