A Word About the
BY DOCTOR WATSON.
People are easily frightened when they
think sotnething in the matter with their
lungs or heart, and well they may be; but
few people understand the dangers of dis
eased kidneys. These organs have a duty
of vital importance to perform, and if they
are diseased, there is no telling how or
where the symptoms may appear. The
kidneys are filters, and when they are
healthy they remove the poisons from the
blood and purify it. When the kidneys
are diseased, the poisons are spread every
where, and one of these poisons is urio
acid. The uric acid is carried all through
the system and deposited in various places,
in the form cf urate salts in the feet,
ankles, wrists and back often forming
bags under the eyes. Sometimes the result
ing trouble is called rheumatism, lumbago,
sciatica and backache. Finally, come stone
(n the bladder, diabetes and Bright's dis
ease. Dr. Pierce, of Buffalo, N. Y., in recent
years, discovered that a certain combina
tion of remedies would dissolve uric acid
(urate salts) in the system. Ho found this
combination to be harmless, so that he
made it up in tablets, of double strength,
and called them Anuric Tablets. They
dissolve uric acid in the human system as
hot coffee dissolves sugar. If you have
nrio acid troubles, don't delay in taking
Anuric Tablets, which can be secured in
the drug stores. You can write Dr. Tierce,
too, and he will tell you what to rat and
how to live so that more uric acid will not
form in your system. Dr. Pierce will not
ehargo for this advice.
