Kidney Remedy For 40 Years
A Pronounced Succass
When kidney diseases have been
successfully treated for a period of
more than forty years, it is reason
able to assume that the remedy,
therefore, must possess unusual mer

of Warner's Safe Kidney and Liver
Remedy. Without its ability to give
relief ar.-d benefit its users so that
they would continue its use, it could
not have existed 40 months, much
less 4 0 years of its en- 'able record.
Many letters have come to us to
prove that it has been a household
remedy for years and years. Here
is what one grateful woman has re
cently written:
"I wish to say that your reme
dies have been used in our family
for fifteen years. We are never
without a bottle of Warner's Safe

107,000 Pounds o£ Food
Wasted in Philadelphia in
Effort to Keep Prices Up
Philadelphia, Aug. 13. Follow
ing publication of statements by
Robert M. Simmers, agent of the
State Food and Dairy Department
and Government Food and Drug In
spector, to the effect that between
3,000 and 4,000 pounds of meat are
wasted weekly in this city as a re
sult of having been held too long in
storage houses for the purpose of
inflating prices, the official lid of
silence yesterday was clamped for a
few hours—but a few huors only—
on the inspector.
While Mr. Simmers declared the
order to refrain from giving out any
further information had been issued
by his inspectors in Harrisburg, the
inspiration was traced to the third
floor of the Federal Building in this
city. There, nearly a week ago, in
structions were received from the
United States Attorney General to
proceed at once with vigorous action
against food gougers.
Hut word was sent to Harrisburg
that it was known here that the lid
had been put on Mr. Simmers'
revelations. It became known that
this attempt to seal Mr. Simmers'
lips would be published to-day.
Whereupon hasty instructions were
issued from Harrisburg last night to
Mr. Simmers to give out the facts.

trouble —in some cases do not even

just try the effect of a little bisurat
ed magnesia—not the ordinary com
mercial carbonate, citrate oxide or
milk, but the pure bisurated mag
nesia which you can obtain from
practically any druggist in either
powdered or tablet form.
Take a teaspoonful of the powder
or two compressed tablets with a
little water after your next meal,
and see what a difference tit is makes,
it will instantly neutralize the dan
gerous, harmful acid in the stomach
which now causes your food to fer
ment and sour, making gas, wind,
flatulence, heartburn and the bloat
ed or heavy, lumpy feeling that seems
to follow most everything you eat.
You will ilnd that provided you
take a little bisurated magnesia im
mediately after a meal, you can eat
almost unything and enjoy it with
out any danger of pain or discom
fort to follow and moreover, the con
tinued use of the bisurated magnesia
cannot injure the stomach in any way
so long as there are any symptoms
of acid indigestion.
