Rheumatism ( rnused hy poisonous
toxin, cailed uric acid, which Is generated
In the bowels and 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 dump and chilly, cold wea
ther tho skin pores are closed, thus forc
ing the kidneys to do double work, they
become weak and sluggish and fall to
eliminate this uric acid which keeps ac
cumulating and elreulutlng 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
Jad Salts: put a tablespoonful In a glass
of wster and drink before breakfast earh
morning for n week. This Is said to elim
inate uric acid by stimulating the kidneys

of these Impurities.
