If Back Hurts
Begin on Salts
Flush the Kidneys at once when
Backachy or Bladder bothers
Meat forms uric acid.
Xo man or woman who eats meat
regularly can make a mistake by
flushing the kidneys occasionally, says
a well-known authority. Meat forms
uric acid, which clogs the kidney
pores so they sluggishly filter or
strain only part of the waste and
poisons from the brood, then you get
sick. Nearly all rheumatism, head
aches, liver trouble, nervousness, con
stipation, dizziness, sleeplessness,
bladder disorders come from sluggish
The moment you feel a dull ache
in the kidneys or your back hurts, or
if the urine is cloudy, offensive, full
of sediment, irregular of passage or
attended by a sensation of scalding,
get about four ounces of Jad Sajls
from any reliable pharmacy and take
a tablespoonful in a glass of water
before breakfast for a few days and
your kidneys will then act fine. This
famous salts is niade from the acid
of grapes and lemon juice, combined
with lithia, and has been used for
generations to flush clogged kidneys
and stimulate them to activity, also to
neutralize the acids in urine so it no
longer causes irritation, thus ending
v lad Salts is inexpensive and can
not injure: makes a delightful effer
vescent lithia-water drink which all
regular meat eaters should take now
and then to keep the kidneys clean
and the blood pure, thereby avoiding
serious kidney complications. Adv.

Musterole is a clean, white ointment,

THEN AND HOW OVER
THE FASTEST LINES
Ads in The Bee of Forty Years
Ago Show of What the Rail
roads Boasted Then.
OMAHA PROUD OF HOTEL
By A. R. GROH.
"Through to Chicago without
change of cars." says an advertise
ment of the Chicago, Burlington &
Quincy railroad in The Bee of one
day in January,-187, forty years ago.
"Celebrated Westinghouse Air
Brakes on our express trains," cries
an advertisement of the Chicago,
Kock Island & Pacific railroad in the
"Only direct route, being the short
est and first completed, between
Omaha and Chicago," says the adver
tisement of the Chicago & North
western railway, and adds the further
inducement that its "trains are
equipped with Miller's Safety Plat
form and Coupler."
They refrain from stating their
running time between Omaha and
Chicago. But here is an ad of the
St. Paul & Sioux City and Sioux
City & Pacific railroads which proud
ly announces that the run from
Omaha to St. Paul is made in eight
een hours, "ten hours ahead of any
other road." The schedule today from
Omaha to St. Paul is about eleven
Fast Train Then.
Something of the speed of travel
in those days is shown by an adver
tisement of the Pennsylvania lines in
The Bee giving the schedule from
Chicago to New York. This road's
"crack" train left Chicago at 9 a. m.
and was due in New York at 7:35 p.
m. the next day, thirty-five hours
and thirty-live minutes. The fastest
time today is twenty hours.
There were seven trains coming in
Sage Tea Turns
Gray Hair Dark
It's Grandmother's recipe to bring
color, lustre and youthfulness to
hair when faded, streaked or gray.
That beautiful, even shade of dark,
glossy hair can only he had by brew
ing a mixture of Sage Tea and Sul
phur. Your hair is your charm. It
makes or mars the face. When it
fades, turns gray or streaked, just an
application or two of Sage and Sul
phur enhances its appearance a hun
dredfold. Don't bother to prepare the mix
ture; you can get this famous old
recipe improved by the addition of
other ingredients for 50 cents a large
bottle, all ready for use. It is called
Wyeth's Sage and Sulphur Compound.
This can always be depended upon
to bring back the natural color and
lustre of your hair.
Everybody uses "Wyeth's Sage and
Sulphur Compound now because it
darkens so naturally and evenly that
nobody can tell it has been applied.
You simply dampen a sponge or soft
brush with it and draw this through
the hair, taking one small strand at
a time; by morning the gray hair has
disappeared, and after another appli
cation it becomes beautifully dark and
appears glossy and lustrous. This
ready-to-use preparation is a delight
ful toilet requisite for those who de
sire dark hair and a youthful appear
ance. It is not intended for the cure,
mitigation or prevention of disease.
