Bunt, supervisor, reported an  equally successful year with a band of  15 members.  The Ladies, Aid report was the best in  the past two or three years* and was  submitted by Mrs. M. R. Joyce. The  teas, concert, 'dinner and bazaar had  been financial successes, and from the  revenues derived the ladies had paid for  the wiring of the manse as well as making a further payment on the church  debt.  .    .' ���������  Under the leadership oL W,. $���������Truscott  the Sunday Scfeooi-febniittueS^  and is now employing a staff of   eight:  teachers.

All the sneetings bad been of  interest and plans are laid for fully as  active a twelve months in 1931. The  past year, with its fin? racial, depression,  had not entirely left Trinity unscathed,  but though a deficit this year is a fact, it  is negligible, and following the somewhat  poorer season for the district is not entirely unexpected.  Stewards elected are: Mrs. George  Cartwright, Mrs. Kernaghan, W. J.  Craig, F. Bunt,,W. J. Truscott, G. Cartwright, and vie. Mawson, the latter  being re-elected treasurer. Along with  these go one representative elected by  eachr organization in the church to  complete the board, of management.  Trinity has a board  of five elders.

The  elimiantion waltz was won qy Miss J.  Pederson vand Paul Of ner. A motion  was passed to drop the membership age  limit from 16 to 15 years. Doug.  Butterfield was named convenor of the  committee handling the fancy dress  carnival which is to be held at i a future  date. j  The K.K. Klub dance on Friday  evening was a ..p.ei.u.d suepsss. Although the crowd was smaller than  anticipated, owing to bad weather conditions, a very enjoyable evening was  Bpent. The music by Al. Fredericks*  orchestra was first-class, and supper,  served by K.K.K. members, left nothing  to be desired.  and a representative from there had  figures to show t at for 1930 while bulk  shipping had reduced the demand by  100,000 boxes for boxed apples, bulk  shipments had increased from 5870 tons  in 1929 to 10,481 tons in 1930, and it  was figured shipping at $40 a ton was  equal to $1.20 ]ber box.  ��������� The resolution approving of centra!  selling was debated for three hours,  and finally passed by a vote of 38 for 2  against, the two opponents being Messrs.  Littlejohn and Bradley. However there  were 20 delegates- who refused to vote.  The proposed: biE; creating central sell-  Jn&Jg^no^  summary wati^ubnvitted to the convention andsi --stipulates that on a 66 per  cent, favorable; vote central selling becomes law.

Mr. Littlejohn was thoroughly  businesslike in reporting on the activities  of himself and Mr. Bradley both in and  out of the convention, They commenced . feeling out likely parties and  executives as soon as they arrived on  Sunday and were on. the job up till the  time of leaving. They had met the  B.C.F.G.A. executive and in the time at  their disposal had threshed out the  Littlejohn resolution unanimously adopted at the Black meeting here in  December. The executive had requested that a letter be sent them fully  settiug forth the meaning of this  resolution and it was agreed by Monday's meeting that a committee of  Frank  Putnam,  R.   J.   Long,   J.   W.  Hamilton, D. Bradley and Mr. Little-:  john sit in at a meeting and prepare  such a letter.  Notwithstanding the Sanford Evans  report, which completely discredited  central selling, Mr. Littlejohn assured  the meeting that ihe legislature would  be asked to pass the desired legislation,  and that in their activities at Kelowna  he and Mr. Bradley had been chiefly  concerned in doing what they could to  _._������_>__...___.    _-������_������a���������+__���������������   :..J-���������___4._   __,4-U^_   l^n������  ocaaa^KaacMa��������� VLCObVU ca **_ feci, csafro LavucL   v_ic_aa  by offering straight   opposition*  which  latter the growers themselves would have  opportunity to show when the vote is  taken on the bill, if the legislature  approves.  Mr. Littlejohn and Mr. Bradley were  quite convinced they had made quite a  favorable impression in their requests for  consideration. Th - former agreed with  much contained in the Evans report but  was entirely opposed tb the Evans recommendation that the fruit growers go  back to the old days of open selling and  consignment. C~3  Mr. Bradley had a report on 1930  developments in the matter of converting surplus crops into by-products.  Experiments had been carried on at  Summerland experimental -station in  dehydration but- it had been found - that  better results could be had with apricots  if sun drying was used. Okanagan  prunes had been lacking in the needed  sugar content, but with some additional  tariff protection it was believed Royal  Anne cherries could be turned out ss the  Marchino product very profitably.  Eminently successful had been the  experiments in making brandy out of  apples. From a ton of standard  vsurieties it was possible to m_ e 16  gallons of high class brandy, and if the  Ottawa government would somewhat  reduce the excise tax at present imposed  there is no reason why brandy making  might not be carried on at a good profit.  As to cider, experiments were being  made in .Nova Scotia but as y^t. no  report is to hand. ~ ���������*  The meeting was quite unanimous  that Creston should, have at least one  man at Victoria to look after local  interests when the central selling bill is  before committee, but enthusiasm was  somewhat lacking in the matter of  providing fnnds to meet a delegate's  expenses' On motion, this feature was  referred to he committee of , five who  are drafting the letter to be sent the  B.C.F.G.A. The usual vote of thauks  to Messrs. Bradley and Littlej'ohn for  their good work was carried enthusiastically.

Hostilities were, resumed as  between  the  Badminton  talent   of   Yahk   and  Creston'when a sqnad of about- a dozen  players   from   Yahk Wednesday" night  last   tried   conclusions -with   a   similar  number from Creston.   24 games of 15  points were played and Creston emerged  a  winner of sixteen  of them.   Honors  were   even   in   the  men's  and - ladies'  doubles but in the mixed doubles Creston showed superiority, although in two  or three instances overtime had to be  played.   The tournament was   held  in  the Parish Hail and was witnessed by a  number of local club members and  other  friends of the sport.   On this occasion  lunch was served earlier in the evening,  ann  play was continued for about an  hour after supper.   This makes the third  inter-town clash of these players, and on  games won Yahk shows a ciear lead of  three, the totals being Yahk 44,  Creston  41.

The platform was designed at the  suggestion of Dr. Harlow Shapley,  director of the Harvard astronomical  observatory.

He  says that a. fast reader��������� and almost anybody can hecome one by trying���������  can get away wth 130 books a year, or around twelve a month; and if this  swift reader will give but two hours a day to the matter he can read  12,960,000 words a year, which would "be around 36.000 words a day. And  this, mi__d you, exclusive of newspaper and magazine reading. Just books,  you know. The professor says that any fairly intelligent reader can teach  himself to read at least half again as fast as he now does.  I have not seen the professor's book, and if I should come across it, I  am not likely to read it.    The scope -of my ambition does not embrace a l-  dtsire to be a "rapid" reader. 1 do not wish to set myself a stint of so na  books to be travelled through swiftly within a given number of months, or j  weeks, or days. I can get along nicely without ben*g -able to boast of having  scanned 12,000,000 odd words in a twelvemonth, and I cannot muster regret  at the end of a busy day if I have not done _ny daily 30,000 words, or ten  thousand, or one thousand, or none at all.   In fact, I could run quite happily \  ar<d  profitably for a considerable number of  days withotit lmvj.ig seen a  printed or written word and without having written one. I could spend the  time just thinking over what I had read and deciding how much of it was  wortli remembering.  Why do we read!? More particularly, why do we read books ? Doubtless  each one would give a different reason for reading, but in a general way,  wc read for information, for entertainment, for self-improvement, and for  pleasure. I like to read in much the same way as I go for a walk. A  reasonably rap!d pace where the way is open and there is not much in the  Burroundings to claim special attention; a slower pace when I enter the  woods or where the general view is inviting: a pause for some particular  view or to listen to the song of a b'rd or to watch the ever-changing tracery  of the mist in the valley or around the hill tops or to marvel over the girth  and height of some forest giant; to throw myself at full length on a bank  of moss and just dream. But never in any circumstance to gauge or value  the walk by the number of steps I may have taken or the miles I may have  travelled.  We walk for recreation���������the re-creationf refreshment, upbuilding and  unfold-ng of our bodies and minds. When we have the choice we should  read for recreation, for profit, for mental and spiritual benefit, for pleasure,  lasting pleasure. We should read as a prospector looks for gold, rapidly, if  we wish, where there are no signs of buried treasure, carefully where the  "���������color" shows, and with infinite leisure but keen alertness when we strike a  a vein or d'scover a nugget .For it is the nuggets, the gems, buried in the  printed pages of books which give zeal and zest to reading and the discovery  of which repays richly for the time spent.  Not how fast can you read, but how thoroughly, should be thc chief rule  for any reading that is worth while. Reading which is not worth while is  sheer waste of time. Reading for the beauty of style and of thought and of  expression, savoring each polished phrase as you would savor the d.aintie3t  morsel of food, till you have drawn from it all of its flavor and taste and  charm. Your inner ear attuned to catch the music of the words. Your fancy  alert to catch the play -of fancy of the writer. Pausing now and then to  chase to its lair every word you do not understand. That is the way, I take  it, to read, when it is your choice to do so, for pleasure and profit.  Don't try to match the mass production of the publishers with mass  reading. Better give 12,960 000 seconds to thinking than to rapid scann'ng  of an equal number of words, if you cannot compass both. Don't read so  much that ycuvhave no time left to th*nk over what you read or have read.  Taking the matter by and wide, you will get more profit and pleasure out of  slow than out of rapid reading, and you will have time to garner the gems,  to listen to the music and to revel in the beauty inherent in all good writing.

The building ^as surrounded arwi  a crowd quickly gathered while the  police examined the premises. Not a  single window had been left open, not  a single jemmy mark marred a door.  When ihe police eventually gained  admittance they found that the wireless set had been left on when the  premises were closed earlier in the  day.

WILL VISIT OTTAWA  Ottawa, Ont.-���������Wheat surpluses in  exporting countries of the world aro  reviewed in a statement handed out  by the Dominion Bureau of Statistics  recently. Canada's surplus is given  at 253,000,000 bushels. Other important exporting countries have surpluses which are estimated as follows: Argentine, 200,000 000 bushels; a  Australia, 165,000,000 bushels; United"  States, 241,000,000 bushels. The surplus in Russia is not known, according to the statement, but it has been  estimated that 1,157,400,000 bushels  has been harvested.  The figures given reflect the situation during the month of December  as far as foreign statistics are concerned, while the situation to Canada is covered up to the middle of  January.  "Surveying world situation from  a Canadian viewpoint, ho marked  increase Sn demand is visible," tho  review states, "European countries,  apart from Prance, will not increase  their imports to any great extent.  Tt will be remembered, however, that  France has undertaken that between  seven and nine million bushels of  ���������wheat wiil be imported during jfhe  season. From August 1 to December 31 last, the Canadian exports to  France amounted, to 3,739,877 bushels.  "Germany's policy with regard to  imports of foreign wheat is identical  with that of France, the endeavor being to force consumption of rye as  bread and as a mixture with wheat.  The net result in these two countries  is that native wheat ������s selling at  prices from $1.67 to $1.87 per bushel,  while good North American wheat  cannot be imported at the very low  price of 65 to 70 cents per bushel."  It is stated Sn the review that  the Argentine surplus will have to  be disposed of as soon as possible  c- account of. inadequate storage  facilities. At the present time in*  clement weather in the Argentine  is hindering large exports and also  deteriorating qualities. Inadequate  storage facilities are also the case  in Australia which will . result in  that country selling ln the open  world market. Australia, however,  is also experiencing inclement  weather. With respect to Australia, a new outlet has been found  in India which is taking large imports from the Antipodes.  With respect to the United States  it Is stated that that country is  not at present a competitor in world  markets in spite of large wheat  stocks. * Russia has forwarded  72,208,000 bushels through Black  Sea ports since August 1, but recent export shipments have fallen off. ���������  It is forecasted, however, that increased shipments wiil be forthcoming during thc winter-  Non-European countries are expanding their wheat Imports, according to the review and continued dry weather In India should  mean a better demand for wheat ln  these countries. Tho Orient Is looked upon as aa outlet for Canadian  wheat,  The opinion Is expressed that  with seven months of the crop year  remaining-, tlie surplus of 253,000,-  000 bushels in Canada Is not unreasonably high. Attention In drawn  to the fact that tho five year average (oxport for tho seven months ending July SI, waa 141,118,554 bushels  or 20,159,305 bushels per month.  There has. been a continued Improvement ih the exports of wheat and  wheat flour during tho flrat five  months of tho crop year.  Photograph above allows Miss. Joan Pcaraon.

Hill, of Victoria, may  succeed Hon. Randolph Bruce  as Lieutenant-Governor of British  Columbia. That is interesting  gossip and might easily develop  i~to an actual fact. But C. P.  Hill is not known to the people  down this way. and particularly  in the Crow's Nest Pass, as well  as "Chippy" Hill, and they are  one and the same person. Hill-  crest, the Crow,s Nest mining  camp, is named after him, because he was responsible for  creating it and his wealth came  from his association with it. It  is some years now since C. P.  Hill lived in these parts, but he is  not forgotten. He lives now in a  beautiful home in Victoria and  travels abroad, with his gracious  and charming wife, every few  years. As a host and hostess at  Government House, Mr. and  Mis, C. P. Hill could hardly be  excelled.  A rather remarkable incident  happened on the, occasion of one  of the trips the Hills made  abroad.    They were in  Northern  Hill and wife, Victoria, B.C."  They did not think there was a  soul in the whole country who  knew them or ever heard of them.  Mr. Hill asked the clerk behind  the desk to provide him with a  room and bath, as quickly as  possible, as his wife and he wanted to clean up after the sultry  day's travel, and was amazed to  hear in answer, "Yes, Chippy,  you will get just what you want  immediately/' or so .ething to  that effect. Mr. Hill was astounded. There he was in a distant  part of the world, a tourist, without acquaintances, other than  members of his own party and  there standing before him was a  man, who called him by the name  that only bosom friends dared to  address him. "How do you  know me as 'Chippy5?" asked the  startled visitor and the clerk  behind the desk laughed and said,  *'I knew you well in the old   days  in Butte.    I  was with hotel  there and my name is "   We  have forgotten the name of the  clerk, and they matter little, for  the story is unusual even if these  names have slipped the memory.  Anyway Mr Hill found in his  North African hotel a man, who  once was an acquaintance in far  off Butte, Montana, where Mr.  Hill was engaged in mining before  coming to Alberta. He got the  best of service at tha hotel during  the length of his visit. It is as  "Chippy" Hill, he is best known  and he has intimate friends in all  parts of Canada*and the United  States. He is a most likeable,  democratic fellow and the Government House appointment in  British Columbia is bound to be  watched for with greater interest  by many Southern Albertans now  that his name is associated with  it Lethb-tidge Herald.  107 years. The second period  was one of great advance from  conditions of military occupancy  to Crown colonial system, then  a gradual evolution of semi-re-  presentativa government to full  autonomy in 1867, under the British North America Act. In this  progress /from'practically a fur-  bearing country .to the status of  a self-gdyerm^g colony has been  the period of ^Canada's greatest  relative growth. It was in this  stage of development that the  Uniter Empire Loyalists suffered  the hardships of an exodus that  that lasted, in some instances,  months of journeying through  forest wilderness to carve out a  new   home.  is  The   spirit  manifest in  of   the  Canada  Canadian Citizenship or  Naiionalk  luoria  ���������  ��������� _!_  300 I  BRUNSWICK   j  RECORDS       :  _  at i  m  {REDUCED      *  PRICES        i  _  *  To    rediico    my   stock   I  I  a.ill sell them at :  THREE for :  ONE S.HJLLAK i  m  m  Your r.hoioc...

This, I  would like to consider under the  subject of ''Canadian Citizenship,  or Nationalism."  Canada, in her advance to  nationhood, has experienced many  changes in forms of government.  During the French period (the  35 years under the Hundred  Associates can hardly be classed  differently from that of the Royal  Government of France). Canada  was a Crown Colony during this  firpt period of approximately 152  years.  British conquest of Canada,  complete in 1760, marks the beginning of the second period  which  lasted  until   July, 1867���������  .Loyalist  today.  Another great exodus to  Canada was the Irish migration  of 1847. 100,000 pauperized  from famine were received in this  country���������all classes helping alike  ���������100,000 settlers without funds,  received and provided for by a  people who were themselves  pioneers in a new land. Three  wars were endured���������invasions of  American armies during their  revolutionary struggle, and again  in 1812, and yet again the rebellion of 1838.

This third period was  one of great development in  transportation, agriculture, mining, lumbering puipwood, and  hydro-electric. In national wealth and foreign commerce Canada  had reached a place among the  leading nations of the world-  sixth or seventh from the top.  During this third period a  distinct literature, art even more  so, and culture from high-class facilities generally was made evident  throughout the land. The wars  of this perion, Fenian  Raid, Reil  Rebellion, South Africa, and the  world war, were, each in their  time, tests of nationhood.  Through the great convulsion of  the world war Canada passed to  equal status in the British Commonwealth of Nations.  Reviewing the past as a standard wherewith to measure the  future, Canadians, should not be  troubled with an inferior complex.  Having reached maturity as a,|  nation, all possible encouragement should be given to develop  literature, art and music, and  folklore. The efforts to produce  a national song so that all of the  53 different races who are in the  melting pot of Canadian citizenship may sing it together and feel  that it is a song of their country,  appears to have a measure of  success in "O _ Canada." The  music is good, and was thonght  highly of by King George. The  Maple Leaf, however lustily we  sing it, can never appeal to a  cosompolitan people. If "O  Canada" is not completely satis  factory, the nation that produced  the epic of the great war, "In  Flanders Field," need not fear of  success. "O Canada" is today  the unofficial national song of the  Canadian people recognized in  official functions, such as the  ringing of the carillon from the  Victory tower in Ottawa.  FRANK BAKER.

Over in Great Britain when a man  Is   feeling  "as  fit   as  a  fiddle" and  ooking the ���������'picture of health" they  says    "HE'S   GOT   THAT   KRUSCHEN  FEELING."  That means he takes his little dose  of Kruschen Salts every morning.  It's the same in the U.S__ti.���������in  Germany-���������in Holland���������in Australia���������  In South Africa, for Kruschen Salts are  now sold the world over.  Kruschen Salts is not one salt only-  It is the combination of six salts  accessary to healthy life.  Take half a teaspoon in a glass of hot  water before breakfast every morning,  modify your diet and exercise regularly..  But don't miss a morning, for  Kruschen not only puts and keeps the  Etoriiach, liver, kidneys and bowels ia,  c. splendid healthy condition, but  purines your blood-stream, and sends  new life and activity to every parts  Off your body.  this strange experiment and, since  then, many thousands of others have  been benefitted by my experience.  Today, deaths from cancer are In-  creasjng so fast that every man, woman and child is in danger, so that  the disooveries I made years ago become of great importance. All you  have to do is tc escape death from  other causes long enough, and cancer  is almost sure to get you. In fact,  cancer and the sickness of premature  old age are very closely connected.  For as long jas the tissues can. be  kept young and healthy, cancer cannot develop in or on it. But when the  body !n general, or in part, becomes  Igwered in vitality, then look out.  Women are more prone to cancer  than men, for it is said that 1 out  of every 8 women, and 1 out of every  12 men,' who reach the age of 40,  develop cancer.

A     Txma      sq  wretched before little Nick arrived  that I had help with the housework  all the time, and the nurse' stayed six  weeks instead of three. Nick just  won't scrimp at such, a time; but the  money melts away, and our old house  always seems to need repairs. It's  fcsrd to save when you marry so  young that there's no nest egg laid  by for the emergencies that always  corns; and Nick's uncle left precious  little beside the house. So I'll take  your gift, Uncle Sim, and think of  you gratefully whenever I spend a  dollar of it.  She kissed him again, and Simeon  said, as she arose: "No need o' gettin'  so stirred up over a little matter of a  hundred dollars. Now, dearie, you  must go to bed. Maybe we better take  the babies on a picnic tomorrow, if  ^eir^atfddy"a^t"]g6tor''l������;^.'*5o hand.  Seem's if I'd miss the boy full as  much as they will."

"Good-night, dearest," she said, as  if her voice could carry across the  miles. "I hope���������I do hope you're  -missing me a little.".  And at that very minute Nick was  bend'ng- eagerly above a road map, a  head crowned by wonderful, rippling  hair, close to his own.  "It'll be a bully trip," he said, raising his eyes to meet the very blue  and innocent ones beside Mm. "We'll*  come back through Anton Bay. The  view from those hills is glorious.  Gosh! it'll-seem good to see some*  thing besides Bakersville or State  .Line!"  He arose, and, accompanied by, a  figure in shimmering blue, stepped  out through the French window to  the terrace, drawing a deep breath  of the fragrant air. It was then he  looked up at the stars.  "Hope this weather holds till Sunday."  He stretched out a hand, hut Angela protested: "Oh, don't go now!  The evening's just beginning."  "Not to natives of Bakersville like  myself," .laughed Nick. "Besides, I  promised my hotter-half that I'd turn  in early every night, and make up  some of the sleep I lost while the k'ds  were sick. Good-night, Mrs. Etall'day.  Thanks for everything���������the dinner���������  the music���������and the chance to take  this trip. It's a ripping night."  Once on his own porch, reluctant  to go into the lonely house, Nick"  raised his eyes once more to the my-  ra'd stars. A curiously light and  buoyant feeling swept through him;  a phrase from the Gypsy song that  Angela Halliday had sung, sprang to  his lips; while in the tender starlight  the broad highway beckoned and  called with its old allure.

I don't want  to be seem'n' to speed the partin'  guest, but it just come over me that  maybe Mis' Bemis's -Josh could take  you home to-day. He works to the  garage, and if I can hire a car he'd  drive us over. There ain't nobody else  in State Line I'd trust to do it, and  he can't get off only Sundays. "We've  had a cool spell, and by Wednesday  a hot wave's liable to hit us, and  travellin' back by train wouldn't be  no fun. If you say the word I'll ride  back w5th you today, and then come  home'along.,o* Josh; and when Nick  comes back tonight he'll find a surprise."  Gay, who had been fighting homesickness for the last two days, readily  agreed; while Sonny, always delighted at fresh adventures, shrieked with  joy at the idea of seeing 4T>addy,"  though he sobered instantly at the  thought of leaving his beloved chickens.  "Couldn't me take one home, Uncle  Sim?" he asked wistfully. "Couldn't  me take Snowball*? Sonny'd be careful and not hurt him's leg horns."  Mrs. Bemis, hastily hiding a smile  behind her napkin, left the room; but  Uncle Sim. replied soberly: "I don't  doubt his leg horns would be safe and  sound, Sonny, but roosters don't th'nlc  much o" automobiles, and I guess  Snowball would be happie* to stay at  home. Most likely he'd be lonesome  for his wife an' babies."  "Same as Daddy?" questioned the  little boy, and Gay, snatching him up.  kissed him tenderly.  Oh, it would be fun to 'surprise  Nick! she thought happ'ly. If he were  late, and tlie children were In bed, she  would sit on the porch in the darkness, 'and how glad he would be when  he found liorl Simeon, watching the  glow in hor starry eyes, felt well repaid for his sacrifice In sending* them  home throe days ahead .of time.

As the car started she lifted her  baby high, while Sonny clinging to  her skirt, waved a farewell. Simeon  craned h������s neck to watch the picture  till the car turned %into Main Street.  The clouds had darkened suddenly,  and the'house seemed gloomy as Gay  and the children went within. She  switched on a light for cheer, and  j looked about at her owp. beloved domain.  "Nick's done pretty well to Jceep  things as neat as this,8' she commented, as she went to the kitchen to put  away the milk and egga. The re-  ma'ns of a hasty breakfast waa lithe sink, but except for the inevitable  accumulation of dust, things were not  hopeless, "in an hour I crauld do wonders," Gay mused, "but unless these  clouds lift it's too dark.to see, and  I'll be frightfully tired by bedtime if  I do too much. I'll just make tho  beds, and later on slick up the kitchen. The babies will be ready to turn  in early, I wish" (witb an anxious  glance at the lowering sky), "I do  wish Nick could come be-fore dark,'.'.  She had started upstairs, the baby  in her anus, when a voice at the daor  arrested her, and she turned to see  Julio Nipps, the cap adorning her  bobbed hair, slightly awry.

Buell, later master in chancery at  Toronto, who, as a law student,  wrote the inaugural address in the  first Issue of 110 years ago, stamped  the publication in the strongest  terms as a reform journal. It has  since remained a supporter of Liberal policies and principle.  Acids in Dtomacn  Cause Indigestion  Medical authorities state that nearly  nine-tenths of the cases of stomach  trouble, indigestion, sourness, burning,  gas, bloating, nausea, etc., are due to  an excess of hydrochloric acid in the  stomach. The delicate stomach lining  is" irritated/ digestion is delayed and  food sours,, causing the disagreeable  symptoms which every stomach sufferer  knows so" well.  Artificial digestents are not needed ������n  such cases and may do real harm. Try  laying aside ail digestive aids and instead get from' any druggist some  Bisu rated Magnesia and take in "water  right after, eating. ' This sweetens the  stomach, 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 of  magnesia for stomach purposes. It !_.  used by thousands of people who enjoy  their meals with no more fear of indigestion.
