Kidney disease carries awny a large
percentage of our people. What Is to
be done? The answer Is easy. Kat less
meat, eat coarse, plain food, with plenty
of vegetables, drink plenty of water
between meals, and take an uric add
solvent after meals for a while, such as
Anurlc (double strength), obtainable at
almost any drug store. It waa first
discovered by Dr. Pierce. Most every
one troubled with uric acid llnds that

that, while the fighting has been more
severe than In any previous offensive,
there haa been ne cause for pessimism.
The German losses have been ter-
rific. probably 250.000 casualties hav-
ing been suffered by the kaiaer'a hosts.
At such cost they won less than one-
third of the ground on which they had
counted. The morale of the British
troops has been perfect throughout
and they have fought magnificently.
Million Oermons In Action.
Those facta stand out:
It Is known that at least 1.000.000
Germans ware engaged on the whole
front of attack. In the Somme area
not less than 52 army divisions were
Identified. The British line suffered
Ita most severe buffeting In this
stretch, but was firm everywhere.
The Germans believed that a lots
of 500.000 would be a cheap price for
aucceaa In the west, but with a loss
already of 230.000 there la no pros-
pect of their attaining the victory they

The fighting waa act by aay means
a continual Oerroaa advance. The
British counter-attacked heavily and
fought for every foot of ground.
Details of the Fighting.
Ia one battle on the extreme left
the Germans en-ployed not leas than
nlna divisions In an sffort to break
through. For three days the three
British divisions held them at bay.
Finally, under weight ef numbers, the
British retired behind the line marked
by the ruined villages of Bullecourt.
East Nogueil and Crolselles.
The next morning the Germans re-
newed the attack, striking northward
from Fnntalnelles and Crolselles and
westward from Chertssy. They drove
In mam formation, wave after wave,
toward the heights between Henln-sur-
Cojeul to Henin hill.
Two hours of drum Are. in which
gas and high explosive shells were
mingled, preceded the Infantry attack.
From eight o'clock In the morning un-
til noon continuous waves of gray-clad
troops stormed the heights.
British machine guns posted on the
ridge swept down line after line of
Germans. By three o'clock In the aft-
ernoon the Teutons had succeeded In
pressing past Henin hill on both sides
and threatened to cut off the machine
gunnera posted en the crests. Not
until then did the latter retire and re-
join the main Brltleh force.
Similar fighting was going on at the
name time on the right wing. Tremen-
dous pressure wae brought to hear
around St. Leger. Vaux and Vrau-
court. It lasted all day.
At times under the German blows
the British line sagged heavily, but at
no point did It give way.
Desperate Defense of Vaulx.
A bitter battle was fought for pos-
session of Vaulx, but British machine
gunners posted In the ruins of the
village held the Germans at bay. A
ruined factory nerved as a fortress
despite the shelling to which It was
Not until late In the afternoon was
It impossible for the British to hold
the town longer. Even then the Re-
treat only went for a thousand yards.
The British rear guard fought every
step of the way. and. returning to the
main body, a counter-attack was
launched against the Germans in pos-
session of Vaulx and the village was
The fighting continued all night.
Finally Vaulx had to be abnndoned
before heavy night attacks, but only
because German forces had pushed
past further up the line and were
driving to the attack of Mory.
Another bitter struggle was fought
around Crolselles. At Mory Scottish
and English troops Inflicted tremen-
dous losses on the Germans.
Sunday Battle South of Peronne.
The fighting Sunday was tremen-
dous. All day long heavy forces of
Germans endeavored to force a cross-
ing of the Somme south of Peronne,
while further along the line they con-
rentrated their efforts agalast Ba-

northern side, to capture which they
sacrificed thousands of their beet
troops. Rivers of blood were shed for
the town's possession in a combat that
lasted almost all night, until the
British finally yielded the ruins, after
having exacted a fearful price.
Kaiaer Orders Jubilation.
The kaiser was with Field Marshal
von Hindenhurg In Peronne surveying
the bloody fields where thousands of
his best fighting men were killed or
maimed before the British finally with-
drew. The emperor ordered a general
Jubilation throughout the empire,
rockets and flags and a holiday for the
children being the chief symbols o(
celebration. He conferred a gold In-
laid Iron cross on Hindenhurg.
Wilhelm also sent dispatches to ths
empress telling of the progress made
by his armies.
