Catarrh of the stomach has long been
considered the next thing to incurable.
The usual symptoms are a full or
bloated sensation after eating, accomp
anied some times with sour or watery
risings, a formation of gases, causing
pressure on the lungs and heart and
difficult breathing; headache, fickle ap
petite, nervousness and a general played
out and languid feeling.
There is often a foul taste in the month,
coated tongue, and if the interior of
stomach could be seen it would show a
slimy, inflamed condition.
The cure for this common and obstinate
disease is found in a treatment ' which
causes the 'food to be readily and
thoroughly digested before it bas time to
ferment and irritate the delicate mucous
surfaces of the stomach.
To secure a prompt and healthy digest
ion is the one necessaiy thing to do, and
when normal digestion is secured the
catarrhal condition will have disap
peared. According to Dr. Harlaneon the safest
and best treatment is to use after each
meal a tablet, composed of Diasiree,
Aseptic Pepsin, a little Nox, Golden Seal
and fruit acids.
These tablets can now be found at all
drug stores nnder the name of Stuart's
Dyspepsia Tablets, and, not being a pat
ent medicine, can be used with . perfect
safety and assurrance that bealty appe
tite and thorough digestion will follow
their regular use after meals. '
Mr. N. J. Booher, of 2710 Dearborn St.,
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 discbarge therefrom,
passing back into the throat, reaches the
stomach, thus producing catarrh7 of the
stomach. Medical authorities prescribed
for me three years for catarrh of the
stomach without cure, but today I am
the happiest of men after using only one
box of Stuart's Dyspepsia Tablets. I
cannot find appropriate words to express
my good feeling. I have found flesh,
appetite and sound rest from their use.
Stuart's Dyspepsia Tablets is the safest
preparation as well as the simplest and
most convenient remedy for any form of
indigestion, catarrh of the stomach,
biliousness, sour stomach, heartburn and
bloating after meals.

Waedner, Idaho, April 26. The first
shot has been fired, and the place has
suddenly been turned into an armed
camp. The strikers were in session all
last night at their hall. At 5:30 this
morning a compact body of men, beaded
by President Boyles, started up the can
yon. They baited a short distance from
Bunker Hill & Sullivan. Soon after, in
little bunches, up came the non-union
miners to go to work. They were stop
ped by the strikers, and President Boyles
urged them not to go to work. One or
two of the non-union men tried to push
through the crowd of strikers, but were
forced back with the remark that the
union did not intend them to go to work.
Then T. S. Murray, a smooth-faced
leader of the strikers, pulled a big revol
ver, which he leveled at a bunch, of
Bunker Hill employes .
"I'll tell yon what the proposition is,"
he shouted. "You walk down that hill
again inside of four minutes, or- else go
down some other way."
He drew his watch and, as he counted
the seconds, the working miners, faltered
and started down the hill.. A half-dozen
of them went into Black's boarding-honse
on the main street of the town. They
were pursued into the house by strikers.
"What will we do with these d d
scabs?" shouted somebody.
"Run them down the canyon," was
the reply. With that they started the
nonunion men toward the foot of the
town. - ;
Later, in a fight between a number of
the etrikers and the men from the Bunker
Hill, one of the union members fired the
initial shot of the strike. It was directed
at a door behind which some of the work
ing miners were believed to be in hid
ing;- Tonight no attempt, was made to
interfere with' 'the working force, ; and
about eighty men went" on duty when
the shifts "changed.' Sheriff Young ; ar
rived from Wallace today. . Tonight,
armed men are on guard both at Bunker
Hill mine and the mill. - They halt all
comers and demand the countersign
The strikers have tapped the telephone
line between the mill and the mine, and
are intercepting all messages. . .,.
