INTERESTING EXPERIENCE OF
No trouble Is more common or more

People having It think that their nerves

Nervous dyspeptics often do not have
any pain whatever In the stomach, nor
perhaps any of the usual symptoms of
stomach weakness. Nervous dyspepsia
shows itself not in the stomach so much
as in nearly every other organ; in some
cases . the heart palpitates and is Ir
regular; In others the kidneys are af

are troubled with loss of flesh and ap

MARKET AND STOCK REPORT
n ail street Kovlcw.
New York, May 7. Stocks were weak
er today, the comparatively large gold
exports and selling for foreign account
ni.vInK had an adverse Influence. Ac-coi-dlni'
to foreign, houses the liquida
tion for European account was due to
the impression abroad that the candi
dates for the presidential nomination
are not sutliclently explicit aa to their
position on the currency question. The
efftport movement of gold also Induced
sales for the account og European and
local bear operators. The pressure to
sell filially affected holders of long stock
and In the late afternoon trading there
were liquidating sales on the part of
small holders. The transactions as of
late were only moderate In volume tho
