Indirectly Caused the Death of tha
Woiid'B Greatest General.
It Is a matter ot history that Na
poleon wns a gormand, nn Inordinate
lover of tho good things ot tho tubto,
and history further records that bin
favorllo dish was fried onions; his
death from cancer of tho stomach It In
claimed also, was probably caused
from his excessive Indulgence of thlf
fondness for tbo odorous vegetable. J
Tho onion Is undoubtedly a whole
some article of food, In fuct has many
medicinal qualities of value, but It
would bo difficult to find a more Indi
gestible article than fried onions, and
to many people they aro simply poison,
but the onion does not stand alone In.
this respect. Any article of food that
Is not thoroughly digested becomes a
source of disease and discomfort
whether It be fried onions or beef
Thu reason why any wholesome food
Is not promptly digested Is because the
stomach lacks some Important element
of digestion, some stomachs lack pep
tone, others ore deficient In gastric
Juice, still others lack hydrochloric
The one thing necessary to do in any
case of poor digestion is to supply
those dements of digestion which the
stomach lacks, 'and nothing does this
so thoroughly and safely as Stuart's.
Dr. Richardson In writing a thesis on
treatment of dyspepsia and indiges
tion, closes his remarks by saying, "for
those suffering from acid dyspepsia,
shown by rour, watery risings, or for
flatulent dyspepsia shown by gas on
stomach, causing heart trouble and dif
ficult breathing, as well as for all other
forms of stomach trouble, the safest
treatment Is to take one or two of
Stuart's Dyspepsia Tablets after each
meal. I aavlse them because they con
tain no harmful drugs, but aro com
posed of valuable digestives, which act
promptly upon the food eaten. I never
knew a case of indigestion qv even
chronic dyspepsia which Stuart's Tab
lets would not reach."
Cheap cathartic medicines claiming
to cure dyspepsia and indigestion cun
have no effect whatever in actively di
gesting the food, and to call any ca
thartic medicine a cure for Indigestion
is a misnomer.
Every druggist in the United States
and Canada sells Stuart's Dyspepsia
Tablets, and they aro not only tho
saTest and most successful, but tho
most scientific of any treatment for In.
digestion and stomach troubles.
