Catarrh of the
For many years ll has been supposed that
Catarrh of the Stomach caused indigestion
nd dyspepsia, but the truth Is exactly tha
opposite. Indigestion causes catarrh. Re
peated attacks of Indigestion Inflames the
mucous membranes lining the stomach and
exposes the nerves of tho stomach, thus caus
ing the glands to secrete mucin Instead of
tha Juices of natural digestion. This la
called Catarrh of the Stomach.
Kedol Dyspepsia Gyre

The "City of Brotherly Love," or
the Quaker City, whs founded in
1682, by William Penn, hs tbe capi
tal of bis province of Pennsylvania,
and was with brief exception, the
seat of the U 3 Government, from
1774 until 1800. Philadelphia has
long been associated with the. lurg
est cities of the world. It has help
ed to make history. It is renowned
fur its hospitality, and world fumed
a a cit.v ot homes. Situated as it
is, on one of the largest rivers of the
state, open to deep diautrht. vessel
it commands a large share of the
worlds commerce. J. be manniac-
taring concerns have an output
equal to any city of the fcize in the
world. In fact in some individual
plants, such as "Tbe Baldwin Loco
motive Works," and the "Cramp
Ship-building Co," the contracts
awarded, have been greatly in excess
of their competitors,
Knowing all these facts, it was
with much satisfaction, that 1 found
myself walking down Philadelphia's
widest street, (Broad Street,) pr -pared
to enjoy to the fullest all that
was shown me. This street runs
north aud south through the citv,
and is twelve miles long, and as it
contains no car lines, and is paved
with asphalt, it is a favorite drive
way tor automobiles ana carriages,
to say nothing of the business trauic.
Market street, one of the principal
business thoroughfares, running
east and west, crosses Broad Street
at what was at one time the center
of the city, and it is here that the
great City Hull stands. This build
ing was commenced in 1872, and
there is much of the detail work to
to be finished vet. It is the largest
municipal building in the world,
and also the lof iest, with one ex
ception. The great tower is em-
mounted by a bionze statue ol wm
Penn, thirty-seven feet high, who
with outstretched hand, seems ever
pronouncing benediction on his be
loved city. The entrances and
hanging stair cases to this building
are imposingly grand, and there is
plenty of room, one would think,
when one can count five hundred
and twenty of them. The Snpreme
Court of Pennsylvania sits in this
building, as does also the city courts.
The Academy of Fine Arts; the
Baldwin Locomotive works (largest
concern of the kind in the world);
the fine High School for Boys; are
to be found on Broad Street, as well
as many of the city's finest club
houses, notably, "Tho Union
League," one of the oldest and rich
est of political clubs.
Directly opposite to City liall, is
Wanamaker's, the store tha', is
known all the world over. Strangers
are welcomed here as guests, and it
is one of the "sights" of the town.
Ginibel Bros, . Sttawbridge &
Clothier, and Lit Bros, conduct
stores that are each a day's journey
to go through.
The League Island JSavy lard
four miles south of City Hitll, on a
line with Broad Street, is ownid by
the Gov. and contains 923 acres.
A dry dock and spacious naval and
machine buildings are the features
A pleasant trolley ride from
"down-town," north and west
brought us to one of the many en
trances to Fairmount Park, the larg
est public park in America. It
contains almost 3000 acres, about
50 miles of drives, and over 100
miles of walks and bridle paths.
The scenery is at times wild and
romantic, as along tbe ftmoug
Wissahickon Creek, and in other
places the landscape gardeuer has
fairly outdone himself, to present a
beautiful picture. The Schuykill
Kiver divides the rarlc into east and
west sections, as it does also the
City. The main building of tbe
Ceutenpial Exposition of 1876, still
stands in West Park, and is known
as Memorial Hall. It contains a
flue collection of paintings, and a
miscellaneous collection of curiosi
ties. Indeed, on this entire trip 1
have seen more museums, than 1
ever imagined existed. Horticultur
al Hall nearby, is also a relic of the
Centennial, and contains a wonder
ful collection of plant life from
ull parts of the world. I could Ml

however, the old Win Penu House

1,000 living speci men?; the beautiful

The trolley cars brought us to the
