WHAT IS URIC ACID?
THE CAUSE OF BACKACHE, RHEUMATISM, LUMBAGO
Ever since the discovery of uric acid
In the blood by Scheele, In 1776. and
the bad effect It had upon the body,
scientists and physicians have striven
to rid the tissues and the blood of
this poison. Because of its over-
abundance in the system it causes
backache, pains here and there, rheu-
matism, gout, gravel, neuralgia and
sciatica. It was Dr. Pierce who dis-
covered a new agent, called “Anuric,"
which will throw out and completely
eradicate this uric acid from the sys-
tem. “Anuric” Is 37 times more po-
tent than lithia, and consequently you
need no longer fear muscular or ar-
ticular rheumatism or gout, or many
other diseases which are dependent on
an accumulation of uric acid within
the body. Send to Dr. Pierce of the
Invalids’ Hotel and Surgical Institute,
Buffalo, N. Y., for a pamphlet on
"Anuric,” or send 10 cents for a trial
package of "Anuric" Tablets.
If you feel that tired, worn-out feel-
ing, backache, neuralgia, or If your
sleep is disturbed by too frequent
urination, go to your best store and
ask for Dr. Pierce’s "Anuric.”
Dr. Pierce’s reputation is back of
this medicine and you know that bis
“Pleasant Pellets” for the liver and hls
“Favorite Prescription" for the Ills of
women have had a splendid reputation
for the past fifty years.
Even Wisdom Has Its Price.
"Tell me," said the youth who had
come many miles to seek an interview
with the Shelbyvllle Sage, “how I may
acquire real wisdom.”
“By coming across with $2 for a
copy of my book," replied the vener-
able man, "not necessarily as a guar-
antee of good faith, but as a tribute
to my business instinct. I am not run-
ning this sage business for the bene-
fit of my health. See?"
The Truth Comes Out.
“Of course,” said the minister con-
solingly, to the young widow at the
cemetery, “your late husband was
good to you during your married life.”
"Mndeed he w-was,” she sobbed as
she turned on a fresh flow of the
briny. “He w-was more like a f-friend
than a h-husband.”

predilection for being on the off side:

Four hours’ work in the House saw
Speaker Clark returned to the chair;

A budget of the largest expenditures
ever placed before any American con-

from the various branches of the gov-

year. The great part of the proposed
