"The Chicago Diet
'SQuad' succeeded in
cutting down the average
cost of each meal to S-lz
cents in spite of the high
cost of foods. And the
squad waxed fat and hearty.
The most expensive foods
are generally the least nu
tritious. Two Shredded
Wheat Biscuits with milk
make a perfect meal, con
taining all the nutriment
any man or woman needs
for a half day's work and at
a cost of four or five cents.
Shredded Wheat has all the
. body-building material in
the whole wheat grain in a
digestible form. For break

of Rheumatism. .
Rheumatism is no respecter of age,
sy, color or rank! -; If not the most
dangerous of human afflictions it is
, one of the most pajnful. Those sub
ject 10 rneuniaTism snouut less
meat, dress as warmly as possible,
avoid any undue exposure and, above
all, drink lots of pure water. ' '
Rheumatisni is Caused by uric acid
which is generated in the bowels and
absorbed 'into the blood.l 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 mens of freeing the blood of
this impurity. In damp and chilly,
cold weatner tne skin pores are closed
thus forcing the kidneys to do double
work, they become weak and sluggish
and fail to eliminate this uric acid
which keeps accumulating and circu
lating through the system, eventually
seining in tne joints ana muscles
causing stiffness, soreness and pain
called rheumatism. '
. At the first twinge of rheumatism
get from any pharmacy about four
ounces ot lad baits; put a tablespoon
ful in a glass of water and drink
before breakfast each morning, for
a week. This is said to eliminate uric
acid by stimulating the kidneys to
normal action, thus ridding the blood
of these' impurities.
-Jad Sahs is inexpensive, harmless
' and is made from the acid of grapes
and lemon juice, combined with lithia
and is used with excellent results by
tnousanas ot ioiks wno are subject
to rheumatism. Here you have a
pleasant, effervescent lithia-water
drink which overcomes uric arid anH
is beneficial to your kidneys as well.'

Dr. Edwards, a well-known physician
in Ohio, perfected a, vegetable com
n pound mixed' with olive oil to act on
the liver and bowels, which he gave to
his patients for years.
Dr. Edwards' Olive Tablets, the sub
stitute for calomel, are gentle in their
action, yet always effective. They bring
about that exuberance of spirit, that
natural buoyancy which should be en-,
joyed by everyone, by toning up the liver
and clearing the system of impurities.
' You will know Dr. Edwards' Olive
Tablets by their olive color. 10c and

What to Do for Eczema
Greasy salves and ointments should
not be applied if good clear skin is
wanted. From any druggist for 25c or
$1.00 for extra large size, get a bottle
of zemo. When applied as directed, it
effectively removes eczema, quickly
stops itching, and heals skin troubles,
also sores, burns, wounds and chafing.
It penetrates, cleanses and soothes.
Zemo is a clean, dependable and inex-
?:nsive, penetrating, antiseptic liquid,
ry it, as we believe nothing you have
ever used is as effective and satisfying,
