Says We Must Keep Feet Dry, Avoid
Exposure and Eat
Less Meat
Stay off the ground, avoid ex
posure, keep feet dry, eat less meat
drink lots of water, and above all take
a spoonful nf salts ncea-sionallv to keep
down uric acid.
Rheumatism is caused by poisonous
toxin, called uric acid, whiMi is gene
rated in the bowels and absorbed into
the blood. It is the function of the
' idneys to filter this acid from the
blood and cast it out in the urine. The
pores of the skin are also a nteans of
treeing the blood of this impurity. In
damp and chilly, cold weather the skin
pores are closed, thus forcing tire kid
ney to do double work, they become
weak and sluggish and fail to eliminate
this uric arid which keeps accumulating
and circulating through the system,
eventually settling in the joints and!
muscles causing stiffness, soreness and j
pain called rheumatism.
At the first twinge of rheumatism
get from any pharmacy about four
ounces of .lad SSalts; put' a tablespoon
ful in i' glass of water and drijik be
fore breakfast each morning for a week.
This is said to eliminate uric acid by
stimulating the kidneys to normal
action, thus ridding the blood of these
• lad Salts is inexpensive, harmless
and is made from the acid of grapes and
lemon juice, combined with lithia and
is used with excellent results by thou
sands of folks who are subject to rheu
matism. Mere you have a pleasant,
fervescent lithia-water drink which
overcomes uric acid and is beneficial
to vour kidneys as well.—Adv.

Combing Won't Rid
Hair of Dandruff
The only sure way to get rid of dan
druff is to dissolve it, then you destroy
it entirely. To do this, Ret about four
ounces of ordinary liquid arvon; apply
it at night when retiring; use enough
to mosten the scalp and rub it in
gently with the finger tips.
Do this to-night, and by morning
most, if not all, of your dandruff will
be gone, and three nr four more appli
cations will completely dissolve and en
tirely destroy every single sign and
trace of it, no matter how much dan
druff you may have.
You will find, too, that all itching
and digging of the scalp will stop at
once, and your hair will be fluffy,
lustrous, glossy, silky and soft, and look
and feel a hundred times better.
You can get liquid arvon ar any drug
store. Jt is inexpensive and never fails
to do the work.—Adv.

To Rsncw Fight in 04tli Congress
Washington, Jan. 13. —Democratic
j leaders in I ougress to-day considered

1 as the result of the failure of the reso
i lutiou for a constitution amendment
j to enfranchise women to get the neces
sary two-thirds vote in yesterday's con
test in the House of Representatives.
I Failure of the resolution to get even a
| majority vote, it was believed, would
I discourage further efforts at this ses
i sion to have the cjuesiion again brought
| up for consideration.
1 ndismayed, however, because of the

j cause in Congress within a year suf
; t'rage leaders decided to-day that the
light was by no means over and that
j it would be continued until victory was

Dream of Aiding Sufferers
Fourteen hundred thousand separate
and distinct garment pieces were care
fully folded and tied; half a million
questions were asked and answered:
thousands of woolen comforters and
scarfs were knitted; in fact, the entire
machinery of the Home Supplies and
even the Red Cross division of the
Home and War Relief Committee was
iu operation during the greater portion
of last night.
Most wonderful to relate, it wasn't
done at headquarters, 7 South Front
street, but was distributed over nearly
a dozen city homes, where the division
workers of the big general and special
committees were reposing.
Did they work in their sleep? That's
the answer, vouched for iby Mrs. Mer
cer B. Tate and a number of the sup
plies division workers, and supplement
ed and confirmed by members of the
other divisions. For the past, week,
according to the initiate, operations, in
stead of ceasing when headquarters is
left behind, begin with accentuated
earnestness when the workers retire.
Mrs. Tate's Experience
"■I wrapped up and tie dthousands
of these bundles last night," said Mrs.
j Tate this morning, as she skilfully
! knotted a string about a bulky bundle
■of unsewn refugte garments. "For
I about a week I've been doing doulble
dotty, so to speak. Work all day
through here; then speed up the pro
cess, mentally, when I retire."
One experience relattd, others of the
volunteer corps, which is making in
roads on thousands of blanks which
) Bloughs have delivered, told of how
I they, too. had done their unusual work
j —in vivid dreams each might.
; But there is no sign tha tthe double
s duty is exhausting the workers. The
j huge .piles of supplies are being assorted
! and tied u.p ready for use by the Home
Relief Department at such a speedy
| rate that there are thousands o | f bun
j dies ahead to issue.
Miss Marv Jennings, chairman of the
j special War Box Committee, reported
i yesterday that 15 of the 20 grocers
J needed to handle the work had been se
-1 cured. Tomato boxes were found to be
| right size for the $2.25 box of sup
! plies for four adults for two weeks;
boxes having contained canned peas are
J .just the right size for the "War Baibv"
' box, which costs $3.50 to fill.

The secret of keeping young ts to
feel young—to do this you must watch
your liver and bowels—there's no need
of having a sallow complexion—dark
rings under your eyes —pimples—a bil
ious look in your face—dull eyes with
no sparkle.
Your doctor will tell you ninety per
cent, of all sickness comes from inactive
bowels and liver.
Dr. Edwards, a well-known physician
in Ohio, perfected a vegetable com
pound mixed with olive oil to act on the
liver and bowels, which he gave to .his
patients for years.
" Dr. Edwards' Olive Tablets, the sub
stitute for calomel, are gentle in their
action, yet always effective.
They bring about that exuberance of
spirit, that natural buoyancy which
should be enjoyed by everyone, by ton
ing up the liver and clearing the sys
tem of impurities.

Tablets by their olive color. 10c aud

Petrograd, Jan. 13. —iFurther details
of the nayal engagements in the Black,
sea during the first week of January
have been received in Petrograd. The
scene of these activities was between
Sinope and'Riza'b, Turkish |>orts on the
southern coast of the Black sea. The
Hussian ships eame up with the Turk
ish cruiser Medjidish, conveying a
steamer, the Rosetta, wit'h a
cargo of naphtha for Trebizond. They
opene<i tire 011 the Turkish ship and did
considerable damage. The cruisers es
caped, but the Maria Rosetta was sent
to the bottom.
The night of January 6 the Russian
fleet came up with the cruisers Breslau
and (Hamidier. A spirited exchange of
shots followed and finally the Turkish
cruisers disappeared in the darkness. In
Sourmene bay and in Rizah bay (35
miles east of Tretoizond) the Russian
warships destroyed fifty-one Turkish
boats. The 'bombardment of the port
of Hopa, which is the distributing |>oint
for the Tchoruk region, caused a num
ber of fires along the coast.
A strange incident concerning the
proceedings of the Turkish fleet in the
Black sea lias been reported. It seems
tihat the Turkish cruiser Breslau bom
barded certain positions held 'by Turk
ish troops near Liman which is to the
north of Hopa. Following this bam
bardment Russian troops occupied with
out hindrance the positions from which
Turkish soldiers 'had 'been driven toy the
fire of their own cruiser.

Why go limping around with aching,

By Julian Jordan - <
"1 sat 'midst a mighty throng
Within a palace grand.
In a city far beyond the sea.
In a distant foreign land.
I listened to the grandest strain j
My ear had ever heard—
Enraptured, charmed, amazed I was, !
My inmost soul was stirred.
l l
I looked on lite singer Inir,
My heart was at her feet,
She sang of love—the old, old theme —
In accents low and sweet.
And then she sang a song,
That made the teardrops start;
She sang a song, a song of home,
A song that reached my heart.
"That night I shall never forget;
That night with pleasure and pain,
I think of the singer—l think of the

"Put Your Shoulder to the Wheel"
There's R voice that speaks within us, |
If we own no craven heart,
As we pass along life's pathway,
Taking our appointed part;
And it bids us bear our burden,
Heavy tho' it seems to feel.
And with strong and hopeful vigor,
Put your shoulder to the wheel,
And with strong and hopeful vigor
Put your shoulder to the wheel.
What tho' clouds are dark'ning o'er us,
They but hide a tranquil sky;
Or should stormdrops fall around us,
Soon the sunshine bids them dry.
Nevr-r doubt and faint and falter.
Heart be stout and true as steel!
Fortunate smiles ou brave endeavor,
Put your shoulder to the wheel,
Fortunate smiles on brave endeavor.
Put your shoulder to the wheal.
How Thin People
Can Put on Flesh
A New Discovery
Thin men and women that big,
hearty, filling dinner you ate last night.
What became of all the fat-producing
nourishment it contained! Von haven't
gained iVweight, one ounce. That food
passed from your body like unburns#
coal through an open grate. The ma
terial was there, but your food doesn't
work and stick, and the plain truth ia
you hardly get enough nourishment
from your meals to pay for the cost of
cooking. This is true of thin folks the
world over. Your nutritive organs,
your functions of assimilation, are
sadly out of gear and need reconstruct
Cut out the foolish foods and funn*
sawdust diets. Omit the flesh cream
rub-ons. Cut out everything but the
meals you are eating now and eat with
every one of those a single Sargol tab
let. In two weeks note the difference.
Five to eight good solid pounds of
healthy, "stay there" fat should be the
net result. Sargol charges your weak,
stagnant blood with millions of fresh
new red blood corpuscles—gives the
blood the carrying power to deliver
every ounce of fat-making material in
your food to every part of your body-.
Sargol, too, mixes with your food .and
prepares it for the blood in easily as
similated form. Thin people gain all
the way from 10 to 25 pounds a month
while taking Sargol, and the new flesh
stays put. Sargol tablets are a scien
tific combination of six of the best flesh
producing elements known to chemistry.
They come 40 tablets to a package, are
pleasant, harmless and inexpensive, and

Or our destiny can seal;

Put your shoulder to the wheel.
