2stnnony to the great bene

was afflicted for several
years with disordered Liver,
which resulted in a severe
attack oi Jaundice. I had
good medical attendance, hut
it failed to restore me to
the enjoyment of my for

the most renowned physi

all to no purpose, where
upon I was induced to try
Simmons Liver Regulator.
I found immediate benefit
from its use, and it ulti

The Disposition of Man to Take Liber
ties With a Patient Friend.
"There is nothing on which a.
man experiments oftener than his
stomach," said a New York gentle
man wiio is old enough to have
dyspepsia and young enough to
hope to be cured. "A man will
tinker with his stomach when he
wouldn't think of interfering with
his clerk or bookkeeper in his
store, let he lias been in busi
ness all his life, and probably
could take the place of his book
keeper to-morrow. The book
keeper has his work to do, and so
long as he does it well his em
ployer doesn't come around with
a new system or a new style of
books every week or two and
have the bookkeeper switched off.
That's not the way to do business;
but the very man who wouldn't
potter 'around with his employes
goes experimenting on himself
when he doesn't know what, if
anything, is the matter with him.
"There's a thing I read a few
weeks ago that a man should
drink a few pints of hydrant water
immediately on getting up in the
morning. Now let me give you
a list of things that a man should
take into his stomach the first
thing ever' morning. I've author
ity for all these: some have been
told me by my friends, the majori
ty 1 have seen in the papers,
which have recently done a good
deal in this good for the stomach
in the morning line:
A pinch of salt in ice water.
A teaspoonful of salt in water
as hot as you can take it.
A cold lemonade very sweet.
Hot lemon juice with salt.
Eat a lemon without drinking
Tea and toast.
The juice of three oranges.
A raw egg.
Immediately on getting up take
a hard cracker and devote five
minutes to masticating it thor
oughly. Take a tepid bath and absorb
water through the pores of your
skin. This will make you active
and limber all da'.
Exercise till you are in a sweat.
Then drink water that has been
boiled, thus making sure of the
death of anT germs.
"That is only a start on the list.
There is a fascination in it to me.
I want to try each one of those di
rections and see what effect it has
on me. Every week or so I see a
new one, and I experiment with
that. There must be something
good in tnem for somebody, but
what I want to know is why have
they such a fascination for most
men? Why must a man alwaj's
be tinkering with his stomach?
There are hundreds of patent
medicines and the proprietors of
all of them are growing rich. It
has gone so far that patent medi
cines are advertised to counteract
the effect of injurious and impure
drugs taken under the guise of
tonics. Next there will be new
patent medicines to counteract the
effects of these. All these medi
cines have a bier sale. There
seems to be an instinct in a man's
stomach, like a child's desire for
every new toy, that makes him
want to give his stomach an ex
perience with every new medicine
he hears of, or advice kind friends
and newspapers give him."
"It sometimes seems to me that
the mortal spirit of mankind that
formerly had an outlet in cracking
some one's head with the battleax
or jabbing lances at each other on
holidays now vents itself in mak
ing a battle ground of a man's
stomach. One friend says:
" 'Old fellow, you're not looking
well. Dyspepsia again? Well, I
know just the thing for it. Take
a pint of boiling water every
morning. Brace you up. Make
you feel like a new man.'
"Next friend comes along, saTs
the same thing, only cold water.
Another man says some patent
mineral water. Try them all. My
stomach is the most precious thing
about me. Is it is out of order,
I'm no good. When it's in fine
trim I'm chipper. If I were going
to invest ten cents in a scheme I'd
want to know what it was and
what return before I'd put my
money in. Still, I try any num
ber of experiments on my stomach,
nnd snores of other men that I
know do the same thing. Isn't a
man's stomach more precious than
his money? I wonder what weak
ness of human nature it is that
makes him more careful of the
wronrr one. Is it curiosity or a
hankerinp; after comething new?"

A Healthy Stomach
Is a blessinc for which thousands of our dys
peptic countrymen and women sigh In vain,
and to obtain which swallow much medicine
unavallincly. For no ailment probably
are there so many alleged remedies as for
dvsnepsla. The man of humbug is con
stantly glutted with the dollars and dimes
of those who resort to one nostrum after an
other in the vain hope of obtaining relief, at
least, from this vexatious and obstinate mal-
aday. Experience indicates Hostetter's
Stomach Bitters as a means of eradicating
dvsnepsla. in which a firm relianco can be
placed. No remedy has in three decades
