Fortunate if the one wlio can eat "anything" without suffering the tor tures of dyspepsia, but as few are so fortunate, care should be taken in the matter of diet. Eating slowly, masti cating the food thoroughly and taking a short walk after the heavy meal of the day will do much towards assisting digestion. Any grown-up person ought to know the peculiar foods that do not agree, and these should be avoided. When these common-sense aids fail, the next thing to do is to take a mild digestive tonic with laxative properties, and there is none better than Dr Cald well's Syrup Pepsin. It contains the greatest of all aids to digestion, good pepsin. It has othe • ingredients that act mildly on the bowels, which to gether form a combination for the re- II - of dyspepsia or Indigestion that is unsurpassed. Its action is to tone and strengthen the stomach and bowel muscles so that they can again do their work naturally without outside aid, and when that happy moment comes all medicine can he dispensed with. It is the best rem edy obtainable for any disorder of the Btomach, liver and bowels, for dys pepsia, constipation, billiousness, headaches, drowsiness after eating, gas on the stomach, etc. Thousands of users will testify to this, among them Mr. J. W. Goucher, Stites, Idaho, who for several years had all the worst symptoms of chronic dyspepsia. POLITIC Al, APVK RTISIXG I'OIITICVI. Al> YUItTISIXi Part Y J. UKKJAMIN DIMMICK BY VOTING FOR J.

CAUSE AND EFFECT Good Digestion Follows Itiglit Food Indigestion and #he attendant dis comforts of mind and body are cer tain to follow continued use of im proper food. Those who are still young and ro bust are likely to overlook the fact that, as dropping water will wear a stone away at last, so will the use of heavy, greasy, rich food, finally cause loss of appetite and indigestion. Fortunately many are thoughtful enough to study themselves and note the principal of cause and effect in their daily food. A. N. Y. young woman writer her experience thus: "Sometime ago I had a lot of trou ble from indigestion, caused by too rich food. I got so I was unable to digest scarcely anything, and medi cines seeirted useless. "A friend advised me to try Grape- Nuts food, praising it highly and as a last resort, I tried it. I am thankful to say that Grape-Nuts not only re lieved me of my trouble, but built me up and strengthened my digestive or gans so that I can now eat anything I desire. But I stick to Grape-Nuts."
