The urgent need of all who suffer
trom indigestion is in gain strength
so that the stomnch cun extract nourishment I'rom the food tnken. Pain
afler eating Is lhe way tiie stomach
signifies its protest iliiii il is too weak
to do nn tore's work. To take purgatives is only to aggravate tbe trouble.
Dr. Williams' I'ii.k Pills give new
strength to weak stomachs because
Ihey enrich and purify the blood supply thus enabling the stomach to digest food naturally, Almost from tlie
llrst tlle appetite revives; ihen food
can he tnken without pain and tho
burden of indigestion disappears. The
following case proves the truth of
these statements. Mr. W, II. Silver, a
well known, farmer living in the vicinity of Hemfoi'il, N.S., snys: "For
upwards of seven years I was tortured
with Indigestion; sometimes l was so
bud Iliut I "would not tasle a hit of
hourly food, but would have lo content
j myself with u hit of stale bread. Al
times I suffered excruciating pains in
i iny stomach, and -onld hardly sleep
lul night. 1 tried various prescriptions
lint got no benelit from them and null orally I was in a very reduced state
i of health. I had come to believe that
j I was doomed for the balance of my
; life lo thU most constant torture,
when I read of a case similar to my
own cured through the use of Dr. Williams,' Pink Pills. This gave nie new
courage and I decided lo try them. To
make a long story short, I lie use f
the Pills for a couple of months completely cured me. This is some two
years ago, and 1 hove had uo return
of the trouble, and am ablo lo out as

All Fighting Willi Allies
An Important ordcr-in-councll has
been passed at tlttuwa to provide for
cases where a homesteader, who is a
member of the Canadian expeditionary forces or the Britisli or Allied
forces, loses his life on active service.
The minister of the interior is now
given the power to give five patent
to the estate at once.
The act, us it stands, only gives free
patent at onee if u Canadian volunteer
is disabled by wounds, but In the
opinion of Hon, Dr, Roche, if a man
is killed on active service ln defence
of the empire his estate should he relieved of any further duties. Under
the act, if a homesteader dies before
completing duties further resilience is
waived, but cultivation is necessary.
The order in council nlso provides
for any homesteader senilis with the
Canadian, Iiritisii or allied forces
counting active service as residence.
Tli eacl only allows this at present lo
the Canadian forces.
