Casting Club is
Formed by Carter
, -Lake Club Anglers
An amateur fly and bait casting club
haa been organlxed among . members of
the Carter Lake1 club and It la tha plan
td hold a number of canting competitions
for which appropriate prisea for distsnre
and accuracy will be awarded, thla aum
mer. , Thla dub will be patterned after
the Washington I'srk Amateur Casting
club of Chicago at the Mart, but later
will be formed In fa a permanent club. '
A lot of fishermen around Omaha are
adept at tha easting game, but generally
confine their activities to brief vacation
trips o the northern, lakea. It haa not
been generally known that casting at
Carter lake amounted to anything. Last
year Al Bloom caught X aasa by caatlng
from a boat, which shows that an angler
who knows how to caat properly can get
the fish In Omaha.
It la thought tha new caatlng club will
prove Immenaely popular because Ita
members will be better prepared and
qualified to land their share of the finny
tribe by being better able to skilfully
cast the fly, pork chunk, frog or spoon
to tha very apot wTere tha big fellows lie,
when they Invade tha northern lakea
The prise competitions, will also add to
tha attractions of the club.
The committee ef tha Carter Lake club
which ia behind tha caatlng club move
ment consists of Albert Edholm, A. F.
II loom, C Olson and C. M, Johnson.

Stay off the damp ground, avoid ex

a spoonful of salts occasionally to keep

Rheumatism la caused by poisonous
toxin, called uric acid, which la gene
rated In the bowels and absorbed Into
the blood. It Is the function of the kid
ney 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 weather tha akin pores are closed,
thus forcing the kidneys to do double
work, they become weak and sluggish
and fall to eliminate thla uric acid which
keeps accumulating and circulating
through the ayatem, eventually settling
In the Joints and muscles causing stiff
neaa, soreness and pain called rheuma
tism. At the first twinge of rheumatism get
from any pharmacy about four ounces
of Jad Salts; put a tablespoonful In a
glass of water and drink before break

said to eliminate uric acid by stimulating
the kidneys to normal action, thus rid
