Interesting Experiment in a Res taurant. An advertising agent, representing a prominent New York magazine, while on a recent western trip, was dining one evening ,in a Pittsburg restaurant. While waiting for his order he glanced over his newspaper and noticed the ad vertisement of a well known dyspepsia preparation, Stuart’s Dyspepsia Tablets; as he himself was a regular user of the tablets, he began speculating as to how many of the other traveling men in the dining room were also friends of the pop ular remedy for indigestion. » He says: I counted twenty-three men at the tables and in the hotel office X took the trouble to interview them and was surprised to learn that nine of the twenty-three made a practice of taking one or two of Stuart’s Dyspepsia Tab lets after each meal. One of them told me he had suffered so much from stomach trouble that at one time he had been obliged to quit the road but since using Stuart’s Dyspepsia Tab lets had been entirely free from indiges tion, but he continued their use, especial ly while traveling, on account of irregu larity in meals and because like all trav eling men he was often obliged to eat what he could get and1 not always what he wanted. Another who looked the picture of health, said he never ate a meal wUhout taking a Stuart Tablet afterward because he could eat what he pleased and when he pleased without fear of a sleepless night or any other trouble. Still another used them because he was subject to gas on his stomach, causing pressure on hoart and lungs, shortness of breath and distress in chest, which he eio longer experienced since using the tablet^ regularly. — Another claimed that Stuart’s Dys pepsia Tablets was the only safe remedy he had ever found for sour stom ach and acidity. He had formerly used common soda to relieve the trouble but the tablets were much better and safer to use. i, if . After smoking, drinking or 0thei* ex cesses which weaken the digestive organs ^nothing restores the stomach to a. healthy wholesome conation so ettectoStHV as Stu art’s Tablets.^ Stuart’s Dyspepsia Tablets contain the natural digestives, pepsin, diastase, which every weak stomach lacks, ns well as nux, hydrastin and yellow parilla, and oan be safely relied on as a radical ctire for every form of poor digestion.

JOSEPH’S DAYNURSERY Sisters of the Peace Have Now Opened a Worthy Charity on York Street A BOON TO WORKING PARENTS - / A Beautifully Equipped Kin dergarten With Contented ' Little Scholars, - A worthy charity inded is that of the, day nursery recently started by the Sis ters of St. Joseph’s of the Peace in con nection with their orphant asylum in York street, near Washington, and the sight of the happy little tots who are so tenderly cared for by the Sisters, while their mothers are away working to sup port them will well repay a visit by any one interested. In connection with their magnificent r institution in which they cafe for several hundred orphans, in September last they fitted up the thrfc-story frame building adjoining. They have accommodations fw about forty-eight children. A reporter for the News, through the courtesy of the Sisters in charge, this morning had a peep at the little ones that are being cared for. He found more than a score of them, ranging in ages from one to five years, on the first floor, sitting at long tables, school fashion, con tentedly building houses with blocks and going through kindergarten exercises. Those old enough to comprehend are be ing fitted for : reception into the schol. The real little ones merely played with toys and were in echtasies of delight. All were bright and cheerful, and it was seen at the first glance that they were really enjoying themselves as much if not more than if they had been at home. Only one put up, in slang parlance, a ‘flioller”, and he was ordinarily the most cheerful one in the lot. He occupied a baby’s high chair and was fastened on. There was another of his own age that occu pied such a chair. It wdlf wheiPtflie of the Sisters removed him to a roller chair that he grew a trifle angry. When the coge-like structure was being put over his head he protested, but as soon as he found his head and arms free, and that, though unable yet to walk, he ^could, with the assistance of his own legs, per r-nl’iM"to/he wrs simply tickled, so that he laughed harder that} he a few mo ments before had cried. The other little one who occupied a high chair vxai able to walk and as soon as he was taken down he walked over to his neighbor and at the request of the sister to “love Johnnie” he threw his arm about the little fellow in the roller chair and they kissed each other raptur ously. The children were all neatly jessed, hut the clothing they Wore was noto their own. When their mothers leave them in the morning their clothes usually clean, are removed and others substituted, so that after a day’s play their own clothes are still clean. They have a little play ground of their own and are given plenty of time to play out, in the open air when th^ weather admits of it. On the second floor is located1 the din ing room. The low table is simply but neatly spread, and is surrounded' by little chairs. Adjoining is a small dormitory equiped with veritable dreams of cribs, with clothing of showy whiteness. When any of the little ones grow tired of play and become sleepy they are tenderly put to‘ bed, from which they arise after their naps refreshed and ready for more play qr to be received by thei fond mothers who have returned fom worb A merely nominal fee is charged, and this is not obligatory. V There are many poor women who are obliged to toil daily for a living to sup port themselves and their little ones qnd which the nursery is located. There are others who live on the Heights or work down town or in New York. In some instances the. children have such a good time during the day that they artynot glad when? taken away. They al so form gregt attachments for each oth ers. The: Sisters teach them the best of manners. They always salute the Sis ters or visitors with a jcheery “Good Mbrfllng” or “Good Afternoon.” jf1 - 1 1 1 1 ...
