grow such grapefruit, with its texture of pulp and rind, its richness of

Hairs Quickly Vanish
After This Treatment
( (Helps to Betuty)
Science lias aided in simplifying the
banishing of hairy growths from the
flee, and according to a beauty special
ist, the most effective treatment yet de
vised consists of applying a delatone
paste to the hairy surface for 2 or 3
minutes. The paste is made by mixing
some water with a little powderod dela
tone. When this paste is removed and
the skin washed every trace of hair has
vanished. Be sure to get real delatone.-

will "be held from his late home on
Thursday morniug. Interment in the
cemetery adjoining Filey's church.

KEEP URIC ACID
OUT OF JOINTS
Tells Rheumatism Sufferers to Eat
Less Meat and Take
Rheumatism is easier tn avoid than
to cure, itates a well-known authority.
We are advised to dress warmly; keep
the feet dry; avoid exposure; eat less
meat, but drink plenty of good water.
Rheumatism is a direct result of
eating too much meat and other rich
foods that produce uric acid which is
absorbed into the blood. It is the
function of the kidneys to filter this
acid from the blood and cast it. out in
the urine; the pores of the skin are
also a means of freeing the blood of
this impurity. In damp and chilly cold
weather the skin pores are closed thus
forcing the kidneys to do double work,
they become weak and sluggish and fail
to eliminate the uric acid which keeps
accumulating and circulating through
the system eventually settling in the
joints and muscles causing stiffness,
soreness and pain called rheumatism.
At the first twinge of rheumatism
get from any pharmacy about four
ounces of .Tad Salts; put a tablespoon
ful in a glass of water and drink before
breakfast each morning for a week.
This is said to eliminate uric acid by
stimulating the kidneys to normal ac
tion, thus ridding the blood of these
Jad 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
thousands of folks who are subject to
rheumatism. Here you have a pleasant,
effervescent lithia-water drink which
helps overcome uric acid and is bene
ficial to your kidneys as well. —Adv.
