Catarrh of the stomach has long been considered the next tiling to iucuraoie. i hi usual symptoms are a full or bloat ing sensation alter eating, accompanied sometimes with sour or watery risings, a formation of gases, causing pressure on the heart and lungs, and mihcult breathing; heauaches, nckie appetite, nervousness and a general played out, languid feeling. Taere is ouen a foul taste in the mouth, coated tongue, and if the in tericr of the stomach could be seen it wou d show a slimy, inflamed condition. 11 e cure lor tms common and obsti nate trouble is found in a treatment which causes the food to be readily, thoroughly digested before it has time to ferment anu irritate the oelicate mucous surfaces of the stomach. |fo secure a prompt and nealthy digestion is the one necessary thing to no and when normal digestion is secured the caeanhai conditions will have disap peared. | According to Dr. Harlandson, the satest and best treatment is to use after each meal a tablet composed of Dias tase, Aseptic Pepsin, a little N'ux, Gol den Seal and fruit acids. These tablets can new be found at all drug stores under the name of Stuart's Dyspepsia Tablets, and not being a patent medi cine can be used with perfect safety and assurance that healthy appetite and thorough digestion will follow their reg ular use after meals. Mr. N. J. Booher, of 2710 Dearborn street, Chicago, 111., writes: “Catarrh is a local condition, resulting from a neglected cold in the head, whereby the lining membrane of the nose becomes inflamed and the poisonous discharge therefrom passing backward into the throat, reaches the stomach, thus pro ducing catarrh of the stomach. Medical authorities prescribed for me for three years for catarrh of stomach without cure; but to-day l am the happiest of men after using only one box of Smart's Dyspepsia Tablets. I cannot find appro priate words to express my good feel ing. I have found flesh, appetite and sound rest Trom their use.” Stuart’s Dyspepsia Tablets are the safest preparation as well as the sim plest and most convenient remedy for any form of indigestion, catarrh of stomach, biliousness, sour stomach, heartburn and bloating after meals. Send for little book mailed free on stomach troubles, by addressing Stuart Co.. Marshall, Mich. The tablets can be found at all druggists. INTER-STATE C0N1EST.

Despite the attraction of a well ad vertised beautiful woman—at the Opera House—Musical Wheeling can claim its own. and though not large, a respect able audience greeted the Philharmonic Quartette last evening. The concert was exceptionally tine. One number, the Haydn Quartette opus 54, No. 2, is about the very best work yet done by the Philharmonic Quartette, though all numbers last evening, the Beeth oven. as well as the lighter ones, were splendidly interpreted. Mrs. Martha E. Whitaker's beautiful voice was heard for the first time bj a Philharmonic audience, and that as semblage as one, was delighted. Her selections. ‘The Wanderer." (Schu bert) and "There is a Green Hill Far Away," (Gounod), were admirably suited to her voice, a charm long con nected with Mrs. Whitaker's voice. Altogether, the third concert of the second season was musically the best of all. MERCHANTS' PLACE.
