Tea Tonight. There Is an organized gang of chicken thieves Infesting Mlnoolta, comprising at least four young: men, and their rendezvous is alleged to be In a drink ing place on Main street.

The members of the gang are well known; they have not done any work In months, and the only way In which their ability to exist without work can be accounted for, Is to charge up to them tho numerous lar cenies that have recently been commit ted. This Is not. the only evidence against them; they have been watched, and while actual discovery has not yet vis Ited them, yet enough is known of cir cumstantlnl evidence to establish be yond question that they are the ones who invade the roosts at night. It will be either a load of buckshot or arrest before long, if they persevere. The en tire place Is up In arniH and toleration Is any longer out of question. One of their number bus been in jail many tlmos. DEATH OP MICHAEL QUINX.

GENERATED IN THE HUMAN BODY The Result of Imperfect Digestion of Food. , Every living thing, plant or animal, contains within Itself the germs of cer tain decay and death. In the human body these germs of disease and death (called by scientists Ptomaines), are usually the results of Imperfect digestion of food; the result of indigestion or dyspepsia. The stomach, from abuse, weakness, does not promptly and thoroughly di gest the food. The result Is a heavy, sodden mass which ferments (the first process of decay) poisoning the blood, making it thin, weak, and lacking In red corpuscles; poisoning the bruin causing headuches and pains In the eyes. Had digestion Irritates the heart, causing palpitation and finally bring ing on disease of this very Important organ. Poor digestion poisons the kidnevs, causing (right's disease and diabetex. And this Is so because every orguu, every nerve depends upon the stomach alone for nourishment and renewal, and weuk digestion shows Itself not only In loss of appetite und lleh. but In weuk nerves nnd inuddv complexion. The great English scientist. Huxley, said the best start In life In a sound stomueh. Weak stomachs fall to digest food properly, because they, luck the proper quantity of digestive adds i lac tic and hydrochloric) und peptogenlc products: the most sensible remedy In all cases of Indigestion, is to take after each nioul, one or two of Htuurt's Dys pepsia Tablets, because they supply In a pleasant, harmless form ull the ele ments that weak stomachs lack. The regular use of Stuart's Dvspepsla Tablets will cure every form of stomach trouble except cancer of the stomach. They increase ilesh. Insure pure blood, strong nerves, u bright eye und V 'h-ar complexion, because ull these tiult only iroin wholesome food well digest ed.
