How to Prevent Acid Stomachs and Food Fermentation By a New York Physician "My experience has forced me to the conclusion that most peo ple who complain of stomach trouble possess stomachs that are absolutely healthy and normal. The real trouble, that which causes all the pain and difficulty, Is excessive acid in the stomach, aggravated by food fermentation. Hyperacidity Irritates the delicate lining of the stomach abnormally, causing that nil bloated feeling. Thus both acid and fermentation interfere with and retard the process of digestion. The stomach wall la usually healthy and nor mal, but Irritated almost past en durance by these foreign elements —acid and wind. In all cases— and they comprise a great major ity of all stomach difficulties— the first and only step necessary is to neutralize the acid and stop the fermentation by taking In a little warm or cold water imme diately after eating, from one to two teaspoonfuls of bleu rated magneela, which Is the most ef fective antacid and food correct ive I have ever found. The excess acid will be neutralized md the fermentation stopped almost In stantly, and your stomach will at I once proceed to digest the food In a healtbly normal manner. Be sure to aak your druggist for blmirated magnesia rather than magneela In any other form." | GREAT ACTRESS HERE TONIGHT Today's rush for seats to "The Lie," which Margaret Illlngton brings to the Tacoma theater to night and Friday night, Indicated another capacity-house show.
