Received Yesterday From Otis.
Dr. Red well relates an interesting ac
count of what he considers a remarkable
cure of acute stomach trouble and
chronic dyspepsia by the use of the new'
discovery, Stuart's Dyspepsia Tablets.
He says: "The patient was' a man
who baa suffered to my knowledge, for
years with dyspepsia. Everything he
ate seemed to sour and create gases in
the stomach ; be had pains like rheuma
tism in the back, shoulder blades and
limbs, fullness and distress after eating.
poor appetite and loss of flesh ; the heart
became affected, caueing palpitation and
sleeplessness at night.
I gave him powerful nerve tonics
and blood remedies, but to no purpose.
A3 an experiment I finally bought a
fifty cent package of Stuart's Dyspepsia
Tablets at a drug store and gave them to.
him. Almost immediately relief was
given and after he had used four boxes
he was to all appearance, fully cured-
"There was no more acidity or sour
watery risings, no bloating after 'meals,
the appetite. was vigorous and he has
gained between 10 and 12 pounds in
weight of solid, healthy flesh.
Although Stuart's Dyspepsia Tablets
are advertised and sold in drug stores,
yet I consider tbem a most valuable ad
dition to any physician's line of rem
edies, as they are perfectly harmless
and can be given to children or invalids
or in any condition of the stomach with
perfect safety, being harmless and con
taining nothing but fruit and vegetable
essences, pure pepsin and Golden Seal.
Without any. queetion they are the
safest, most effective care for indiges
tion, biliousness, constipation and all
derangements of the stomach, however
slight or severe."
