Stuart's Dyspepsia Tablets,
GIVE PERFECT DIGESTION,

A Popular Remedy for Dyspepsia
Which Has Made Many Remark
The spring of the year Is the lime for

we think we must dose ourselves with

list of so-called iblootl purifiers and
As a matter of fact, thrio Is but one
possible way in which lo purify the
blood, and Ihut Is, through the stom
ach and bowels.
Pure blood tesuli from wholesoma
food thoroughly diner I Impure
blood from poor digestion and assimil
ation. When the stomaeh refuses to
wotk pioperly the food remains too
long a time, fermenting, forming gases,
shown by sour, bitter tnstc in the
mouth, bloating and ibclchlng of gns,
and distress and dlscomfoit generally.
Poor blood, weak nerves, sleeplessness
und a general don't care feeling can
alums bo traced to Imperfect diges
tion. This is thu reason why Stuaifs Dys
pepsia Tablets are superior to all other
sptlng medicines "and Wood piulllers.
They give poifect digestion, tho food
does not lie In tho stomach for hours.
They give a vlgoious appetite, sound
sleep, strong, nerves, and wholesome
food well digested lruUces pure blood,
and In no other way can tho blood bo
puilfled. The idea that a medicine, in
Itself, will puiiry the- blood when tho
stomach and digestive organs are out
of order Is nonsense. Stuart's Dyspep
sia Tablets aie used by thousands In
preference to "bitters," "after dinner
pills" and "blood purifiers" because
thev i oino vc the cause" of thp impure
blood, and you do not have to take
them foiever to get lesults. Dyspepsia
is an obstlnato disease to cuin and a
remedy must be designed especially for
It and nothing else. Cute-alls will not

among patent medicines-. Anyone suf

immediate relief and a peimanent cure.
Stuart's Dyspepsia Tablets are pre

dieting nor change of habits is le
cjuired, they digest the food.

of the ordinance and while iho was
doing so some one whispered to Mr.
Vaughan that a plan was on foot to
ship the city clerk's office of all duties
except those of a merely clerical na
ture and to place tho work of drawing
and Issuing city wanants in the bands
of tho mayor's cletk.
Mr. Araughan Immediately pioceeded
to riklrmlsh around for sufficient vote
to socuro a postponement of action
on tho ordinance until tho next meet
ing and that die was successful can
bo seen fcy tho vole on tho motion to
postpone, which was as follows:
Yeas ruin, Ito-st, Kan, Jrorgin, Jlegin, Met
rlmin, Coxgnwc, Olivei, demons, Vaughiu,
X.is Costcllo, Mdvin, Chiltrnden, Sehneidfr,
Shea, Sclnoedei, O'llojte, McAndrevv, Wagner 3.
Tho reason for the postponement of
action was explained after tho meet
ing by one of the members who voted
in favor of it. Ho .said that an at
tempt w'otild be made between now
and next Thursday night to secure a
sufficient number of votes to re-consider
action and to so i educe the sal
ary of tho recoidei's secretary as to
render it unlikely that he would agtee
to take upon himself the work of
thawing warrants and paying them.
He said that a reduction of the salary
to $600 might even be considered and
stated that the friends of City Clerk
Lavello could ho expected to rally to
the suppoit of such a proposition.
The ordinance awarding a franchise
to bhe Central Rapid Transit Street

system: (hat at the end of forty
yeaia the fiancliiso shall revert to the
c!ly and that cms must be startfil

When these amendments had been
adopted as it w hole, Mr. Finn moved
