Tonight Is the regular night for the
mooting of the poor bonid. One of the
most important matterH which will
probably bo considered Is that of the

tion by the old board. The bill has
been up at each meeting for several
months and, ulthough several times
meetings wete nrranged for between
the old board and hospital directors,
the matter hung Hie until the last
meeting, when President Walker, of
the hospital boaul, nppeared before the
poor dliectors and urged that some
aotlon be taken, as the hospital sadly
needs the funds. The bill was finally
left in the hands of the finance com
mittee of the two boards, with instilla
tions to report tonight.

WHAT SHALL WE KAT
To Xeep Healthy and Strong.
A healthy appetite and common
sense arc exoellent guides t6 follow in
matters of diet, and a mixed diet of
Brains, fruits nnd mcaU Is undoubted
ly the best, in splto of tho claims mado
by vogotarlana and fowl cranks gen
erally. Aa compared with grains and vege
tables, meat furnishes the most nutri
ment In a highly concentrated form
nnd is digested and assimilated more
quickly than vegetqbles or grains.
Dr. Julius Bemusson on this subject
says: Nervous persons, people run
down In health nnd of low vitality
should eat plenty of meat, If tho di
gestion Is too feeble at first It may bo
easily strengthened by tho regular uso
of Stuart's Dyspepsia Tablets after
each meal. Two of these excellent tab
lets taken after dinner will digest sev
eral thousand grains of meat, eggs or
other animal food In threo or four
hours, while the malt diastase also con
tained In Stuart's Tablets causa tho
perfect digestion of starchy foods, llko
potatoes, bread, etc., and no matter
how weak the stomach may be, no
trouble will be experienced If a regular
practice Is mado of using Stuart's Dys
pepsia Tablots because they supply tho
pepsin nnd diastase so necessary to
perfect digestion, and any form of in
digestion and stomach trouble except
cancer of the stomach will be overcome
by their dally use.
That large class of people who come
under tho head of nervous dyspeptics
should eat plenty of meat nnd Insure
Its complete digestion by the systemat
ic uso of a safe, harmless digestive
medicine like Stuart's Dyspepsia Tab
lets composed of the natural digestive
principles, peptones and diastase,
which nctually perform the work of
digestion nnd give the abused stomach
a chance to rest and fo furnish the
body and brnln with tho necessary
nutriment. Cheap cathartic medicines
masqueiadlng under the name of dys
pepsia cures are useless for relief or
cure of Indigestion because thev have
absolutely no effect upon the actual di
gestion of food.
Dyspepsia in all Its forms Is simply a
failure of the stomach to digest food
and the sensible way to solve the ilddle
and cure the Indigestion Is to make
dally use at meal time of a safe pre
paration which Is endotsod by the
medical profession and known to con
tain active digestive principles, and a'l
this can truly lie said of Stuart's Dys
