For a groat many years doctors pronounced it a local disease, and prescribed local remedies, and by constantly failing to cure with local treatment, pronounced it incurable.

No backward step would lie taken, but whether it did or not it would bv the same with him. He had said the question was not whether they should win, but whether they should do what was right. He would do the right and abide the consequences. The Democrat's duty was to advocate principles. The results would be beyond the party.

When the quantity of food taken is too large or the quality too rich, honrtbuin is likely to follow, and especially so if the di gestion has been weakened by constipa tion. Eat slowly and not too freely of easily digested food. Masticate the food thoroughly. Let six hours elapse between meals and when you feel a fullness and weight in the region of the stomach after eating, indicating that you have eaten too much, take one of Chamberlain's Stomach and Liver Tablets and the heartburn may be avoided.
