THREW AWAY HIS CRUTCHES.
A Railroad Engineer Joins the Long List
of Patients Cured by Dr. Darrln.
i-oruana, Oregon.-Mr. Editor-Dear
Sir: I hold It to be a duty as well as
a pleasure to mak0 known through the
press that which of all other things la
mos: essential, via.: The way to cure
pain and sickness. I was confined to my
home with sciatic rheumatism, kidney
trouble. Inflammation of neck of the blad
der and general indisposition. Could not
sleep more than an hour at a time. All

prompted to visit Dr. Darrln through
the advice of my friends who bad been
cured by him. though, I must say. I had
little faith that electricity would cure
me. I came to the doctor on crutches.
Two weeks' treatment baa cured me, so
I have throvn away my crutches, and
my other complaints have all disap
peared, S3 I can take command of my
enln'- W. HAYS.
Judging from the testimonials that are
published daily It seems there are but
few Ills to which the human flesh Is
heir, which cannot be relieved and gen
erally permanently cured by Dr. Dar
rln's electric treatment, and casea that
have resisted other efforts have yielded
to his power. These cases embrace al
most every kind of curable disease, and,
as said before, no man, woman, or child
need despair of relief and cure while
Dr. Darrln offers Invaluable sen-ices,
The doctor will remain In Astoria until
November 1, at the Occidental hotel, and
will during the remainder of his stay,
treat all cases at the rate of $5 a week
or In that proportion of time as cases
may require. The poor treated free from
9 to 10 a. m. dally, except medicines.
Regular office hours from 10 a. m. to S
p. m.. and 7 to 8 In the evenings. He

In the press concerning such cases, ow.

THE OLD WAY
Of Treating Dyspepsia and Indigestion
by Dieting, a Barbarous and
Wc say the old way, but really It is a
very common one at the present time
and many dyspeptics ar.d physicians as
well, consider the first step to take In
attempting to cure Indigestion Is to diet
either by selecting certain foods and re
jecting others or to greatly diminish the
quantity usuai'y taken, In other worts
the starvation plan Is by many supposed
to be the first essential.
The almost certain failure of the star
vation cure for dyspepsia has been pro
vw time and again, but still the mo
ment dyspepsia makes Its appearance a
course of dieting Is at once advised.
All this Is radically wrong. It Is fool
ish and unscientific to recommend diet
Ing or starvation to a man suffering
from dyspepsia, because Indigestion It
self starves every organ and every nerve
and every fibre In the body.
What the dyspeptic wants Is abundnnt
nutrition, which means plenty of good,
wholesome, well-cooked food and some
thing to assist the weak stomach to di
gest It. This Is exactly the purpose for
which Stuart's Dyspepsia Tablets are
adapted and this Is the method by which
they cure the worst cases of dyspepsia.
In other words the patient eats plenty of
wholesome food and Stuart's Dyspepsia
Tablets digest It for him. In this way
the system Is nourished and the over
worked stomach rested, because the tab.
lets will digest the food whether the
stomach works or not. One of these
tablets will digest J.000 grains of meat
Your druggist will tell you that Stu
art's Dyspepsia Tablets Is the purest
and safest remedy sold for stomach
troubles and every trial makes one more
friend for this excellent preparation.
