Keep Uric Acid
Out of Joints
Tells Rheumatism Sufferers to
Less Meat and Take .
Rheumatism is easier to avoid than
Jo cure, states a well-known author
ity. We are advised to dress warmly;
keep the feet dry; avoid exposure: eat
loss meat, but drink plenty of good
Rheumatism is a direct result of
rating 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 skinare
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 ami fail to eliminate the uric
;teid, which keeps accumulating and
circulating through the system, event
ually settling in the joints and mus
cles, causing stiffness, soreness and
pain called rheumatism.
At the first twinge of rheumatism
get from any pharmacy about four
ounces of J ad Salts; put a tablespoon -t'ul
in a glass of water and drink be
fore breakfast each morning for a
week. This is said to eliminate uric
acid hy stimulating the kidneys to
normal action, thus ridding the blood
of these impurities.
. Jad Salts is inexpensive, harmless
and is made from the acid of grapes
and lemon juke, combined with lithia,
and is used with excellent results by
thousands of folks who are subject to
rheumatism. Here you have a pleas
ant, effervescent lithia-walcr drink,
which helps overcome uric acid and is
beneficial to your kidneys as well.

Mail Carrier Clift Shoots
And Kills Gold Head Eagle
Tecumseh, Neb., Jan. 8. (Special.)
Ernest Clift, a rural mail carrier,
Saturday shot and killed a golden
headed eagle. Mr. Clift spied what
he thought was a hawk in the top of
a tall tree. He had a .22-caliber rifle
with him and shot. The bird was
wounded and flew, but could not soar
and came to the ground some fifty
Mr. Clift followed the eagle, which
put up a desperate fight. Not until
four of the bullets had been shot into it
did the eagle give up. The eagle meas

Coming Up at Cheyenne
Krom ii Hlaff. f'nrrof .ponrirnt.
Lincoln, Jan. 8. (Special.) The
question whether the Nebraska legis
lature can make an intrastate freight
rate that the Interstate Commerce
commission cannot touch is involved
in a hearing u-, for Kehruary Jl, at
Cheyenne. yn., before an examiner
for the federal commission. Torrinc-
ton, Vyo.. complains against rates on

The commission early last spring,
without even notifying the Nebraska
commission of the hearing, declared
the 1 1 en ry -Omaha rates in be dis
criminatory and so nulilicd the slate
The Nebraska railway board
promptly rejected the report, and re
fused to comply. It went further and
sent a scathing rebuke to the national
commission, tor not having not men
the Nebraska commission, so it could
be represented at the hearing.
At the national convention of state
commissions in Washington recently
the matter was taken up by the whole
body, and the Interstate Commerce
commission was asked for an explana

sult. Torrington claims that stock
men drove cattle across Hie Nebraska
line to get the benefit of the Nebraska
rate. This tariff, including live slock
and oil, was fixed by the Aldrich act
of the Nebraska legislature of 1907.

Four Deputy Surveyors
Named by Shumway
(Prom a Staff Correspondent.)
Lincoln. Jan. 8. (Special.) In ap
pointing the four deputy state sur
veyors Monday morning, Land Com
missioner G. L. Shumway declared to
be impractical the idea of a con
solidation of the state surveyor's of
fice with that of state engineer. His
appointees were: "
K. C. Beatty, Lexington; Phil
Rouse, Peru; B. W. Benson. Central

The two new men arc Beatty and

Richmond Gets Second Wind
In Race for Chairmanship
(From a Staff Cnrrpfipomlnnt.)
Lincoln, Jan. 8. (Special.) The
rumor is abroad today that the con
troversy over the chairmanship of the
house committee on towns, cities and
villages, lias not yet been settled and
that Richmond of Douglas still has a
chance to land.
It appears that two members of the
Douglas county delegation arc op
posed to Kichmond as chairman of
that committee. Bulla and Shannon
and that they favor Kecgan for the
place. There was an effort, so it is
said tn compromise the matter on
Schneider, but nothing came of it and
the rumor has it now that the tiling
will not be settled until the commit
tee on committees meets tomorrow
It is said that there is a strong
sentiment on the committee favorable
to Richmond because of his experi
ence as chairman of the committee
at the last session and but for t lie op
position of the two Douglas county
members he would land the place
without much trouble.
