American Socialist Society is
Found Guilty on Both
New York, Feb. 20.—Scott Near
ng, one time professor in the Uni
versity of Pennsylvania and Toledo
University and a Socialist candidate
n this city in the last congression-
U campaign, was acquitted of sedl
:ious writings by a federal jury here
ate yesterday.
The Amercan Socialist Socie.ty,
co-defendant, was found guilty on
joth counts in the indictment. The
iury was given the case at 1 o'clock
Tuesday afternoon and returned its
verdict after deliberating approxi
nately 29 hours.
The indictments were based on
publication by the Rand Book
Store, operated by the American
Socialist Society, of Nearing's
pamphlet, '" r he Great Madness," in
which he discussed militarism.
The two counts on which the so
ciety was convicted, charged the so
ciety and Nearing individually with
having attempted to cause insub
ordination and refusal to perform
duty in the army and navy, and
with having attempted to interfere
with enlistment.
Two other counts, charging Near
ing and the society with conspiracy
in the publication of the pamphlet,
had been dropped before the case
was given to the jury.

Create Gas, Sourness and Pain.
How To Treat. •
Medical authorities state that
nearly nine-tenths of the cases of
stomach trouble, indigestion, sour
ness, burning, gas bloating, nausea,
etc., are due to an excess of hydro
chloric acid in the stomach and not
as some believe to a lack of diges
tive juices. The delicate stomach
lining is irritated, digestion is delay
ed and food sours, causing the dis
agreeable symptoms which every
stomach sufferer knows BO well.
Artificial digestents are not needed
in such cases and may do real harm.*
Try laying aside all digestive aids
and instead get from any druggist a
few ounces of Bisurated Magnesia
and take a teaspoonful in a quarter
glass of water right after
eating. This sweetens the stom
ach. prevents the formation of
excess acid and there Is no sourness
gas or pain. Bisurated Magnesia (in
powder or tablet form—never liquid
or milk) is harmless to the stomach
inexpensive to take and is the most
efficient form qf magnesia for stom
ach purposes. It is used by thous
ands of people who enjoy their rheals
with no more fear of indigestion.
