Rheumatism is a Specific blood
ermentation, a souring of the
:irculatiou from an excess of
iric acid accumulating in the
ilood stream. This uratic im
nurity comes usually as a re
sult of constipation, weak kid
neys, indigestion and stomach
iisturbances. These systematic
regularities may not be of
narked severity or of long du
ration, but each has a direct ef
ect on the eliminative members
pf the body, which prevents the
proper removal of the waste
uoducts. This refuse remains
n the stomach and bowels, and
louring forms uric acid, which
lie blood quickly absorbs.
Rheumatism is usually mani
ested in the joints and muscles.
It is here its sharpest twinges

are better than strong mineral

Said That Epidemic Cost More
Lives Than American Loss
in Battle. Danger Not
Over. Great Care Nec
essary to Prevent
Further Outbreak.
The appalling ravages of Spanish
Influenza In this country are perhaps
best realized by the statement re
cently made, that more deaths have
resulted in little more than a .month
from this disease than through our
whole eighteen months participation
in the battles of tlio European War.
Our greatest danger now, declare
authorities. Is the great Amcricun
tendency to forget easily and to be
lieve the peril Is over. Competent
authorities claim the coming of cold
weather is very apt to bring a re
turn of this disease and there should
be no let-up throughout the winter
months of the following easily ob
served precautions, remembering that
Influenza la far easier to prevent
than cure.
influenza it a crowd disease. Avoid
crowds as much as possible. Influ
enza germs spread wnen ignorant or
careless persons sneeze or cough with
out using a handkerchief. Cover up
each cough or sneeze. Do not spit on
the floor, sidewalk. In street cars or
public places. Avoid the use of com
mon drinking cups and roller towels
In public places. Breathe some reliable
germicidal and antiseptic air to de
stroy the germs that do Una lodge
ment in your nose and throat.
Remember, no safer precaution
against Influenza could be employed
in this manner than to get from the
nearest drug store a complete Hvomcl
Outfit consisting of a bottle
of the Pure oil of Hyoinei
and a little vest-pocket hard
rubber Inhaling device, into which a
few drops of the oil are poured. You
should carry this Inhaler about with
you during the day and each half hour
or so put It in your mouth and draw
deep breaths of its pure, healing germ
killing air into the passages if your
nose, throat and lungs.
By destroying germs before .hey
actually begin work in your blood,
you may make yourself practically
immune to Infection.
All these suggestions about Span
ish Influenza are equally tzue in the
prevention of colds, catarrh of nose
and throat, bronchitis and even pneu
monia. Don't become careless. Do
your part. Keep the germs away.
You may save yourself a serious ill
ness and the loss of several weeks
work. On sale by H. C. Kennedy.
Daily Health Talks
The Many Mysteries of
By L. W. Bower, M. D,
You can take an onion seed and a
pansy seed, and plant them side by
side In the same spot of ground. In
one case, you get an onion, with Its
peculiarly strong odor, and in the
other you get a flower of rare beauty.
You can plant a poppy seed and get*
opium (a dangerous, habit-forming
drug), or you can plant a rhubarb
seed and get something that helps
constipation. No scientist, living or
dead, can expain these mysteries of
Nature. Behind the invisible life
germ in each seed is hidden the deep
secret that nobody understands.
Everything growing out of the
ground seems intended for some use
in establishing natural conditions.
Dr. Pierce, of Buffalo, N. Y., long
since found out what is naturally
best for women's diseases. He
learned It all through treating thou
sands of cases. The result of his
studies was a medicine called Dr.
Pierce's Favorite Prescription. This
medicine is made of vegetable
growths that nature surely intended
for backache, headache, weakening
drains, bearing-down pains, peri
odical Irregularities, pelvic inflam
mations, and for the many disorders
common to women in all ages of life.
Dr. Pierce's Favorite Prescription
is made of lady's slipper root, black
cohosh root .unicorn root, blue co
hosh root and Oregon grape root.
Women who take this standard rem
edy know that in Dr. Pierce's Favor
ite Prescription they are getting a
safe woman's tonic so good that
druggists everywhere sell It.
Favorite Prescription should have
the full confidence of every woman
In America because it contains no
alcoliol and no narcotic. Dr. Pierce
knew, when he first made this stand
ard medicine, that whiskey and mor
phine are Injurious, and so he has
always kept them out of his reme
dies. Send 10c to Dr. Pierce's Inval
