The flurgomaHter, who found the rig orous meusures of the girl as comic as bold, refused flatly. But tho young lady. Miss Kern Hobbs, was not put out of countenance.

The usual reason stomach troubles arise- Isv due- t faulty digestion brought about by overworking the body or brain, sickness, overeating, late hours, etc. The best way to correct faulty stomach troubles and digestive mis takes is .to do what nature wants. All that nature usually needs is a little assistance to do this work. This is why doctors tell you to diet. By not eating nature is compelled to aid herself. You do not then over work her when she is already ex hausted. Stuart's Dyspepsia Tablets go in to your stomach just like food. They help digest this food. Then they en rich the blood, and thus when the next meal is eaten the system is bet ter prepared to do Its work without assistance or at least less harmfully. By following this natural habit many have corrected their stomach troubles, and have conquered the old "bugbear" of indigestion. Always take a Stuart's Dyspepsia Tablet after meals or Just before bed time. By doing this you will be act ing wisely and playing safe. Co to your druggist anywhere and buy a box now.
