The Cause of Gout,
Bright V Disease,
(By VALETINE M. PIERCE, M. D.)
According to the consensus of opin
ion of most medical men and scien
tists, such as Garrod, Minkowski,
Hans, Vogt and Reach, the cause of
gout is due to an accumulation of uric
acid in the blood. The same effect
happens in rheumatism, and preced
ing the stage known as Bright' dis
ease an auto-intoxication process has
been going on, the liver and kidneys
could not do the work and the in
dividual suffers the consequences.
High living, the eating of meat mere
than once a day, over-eating, frequent
chilling of the body all may contri
bute' to the poisoning: .
In such cases the, very bejt treat
ment is to prevent or remove the
cause. Diet and exercise if possible;
drink plentifully of water a pint of
hot water with a piece, of lemon
squeezed into it morning and night,
and take before meals a tablet of
Anuric (double strength). This An
uric can be obtained at almost all
drug stores and it drives the uric acid
out of the system by stimulating the
kidneys to better action. Thus many
cases of gout, of rheumatism or
, Bright's disease may be prevented or
cured by taking this simple remedy in
time, and in'the painful and serious
cases of rheumatism and gout it in

saulted by Sutton at Chadron on the
occasion of a meeting between Coun

Attorney Baker says the Sutton
telegram was sent a few hours after
the alleged assault upon Winckler.
Ot course, added Attorney Baker,
"Sutton maye have just happened to
be in Chadron at the time and he may
have iust happened to obtain a leave
of absence from the Omaha police de-
tartment. We are not saying tnat
ynch sent Sutton to Chadron."
Released on Bonds.
Pipkin and Winckler were released
on bonds to appear at a preliminary

others will be sent to Chadron from
Omaha, Baker said.
Attorney Baker, who represents all
the defendants, charged in the com
plaint filed by County Attorney Lrites

charge was absurd. He added that a
seauel to the case will be an expla

E have decide to undertake the preparation of a New
Volume to be added to the present 29 volumes of the
Encyclopaedia Britannica, 11th Edition.
The New Volume will bejlevoted to the war and will have the
effect of bringing the information in the Encyclopaedia Britannica
down to the date of the conclusion of peace.
It will contain a full and authoritative account of the historical
background out of which the war sprang, with special reference to
the political, social and racial conflict of interests of all the nations
concerned. ' 1
It will give exhaustive treatment to the progress of the war, step
by step and in all countries.
It will show the immediate results of the war not only on the mili
tary side, but on the economic side as well, and it will thus enable
the reader to foresee its ultimate results in the readjustments that
will follow in all nations. .The war's geographical results will also
be fully dealt with, and new maps, to take place of present ones,
will be given wherever there are changes in present boundaries.
The new volume will be written on the same high level of au
thority, comprehensiveness and imjjartialitj' which has always dis
tinguished the Encyclopaedia Britannica, and which has made its
pronouncements on any controversial subject of unique value to th
The editor will take especial care' to give readers judicial account
of the war, and will exercise such control over the contributors that
'" the narrative will be freeJfromartisatWee
Those who will be asked to contribute will be writers of the same ,
standing and qualifications as those who wrote for the Britannica itself,
The magnitude of th war, in which practically all couritries are
directly concerned, makes it necessary that its history should be
treated with the high authority that can only be attained by em
ploying the incomparable resources of the Britannica; it also calls
for the putting into concrete and authoritative form, forjresendajj
readers and for posterity, of the facts of a chapter of history which
will be of immeasurable influence on the future of ciyilization every
where in the world. The War Volume will be, in fact, a complete
reference work on the greatest war of history, and in its own field
v just as good a book as the Encyclopaedia Britannica.
The New Volume will not only 'give a fair, unbiased and full
account of the war itself how it started, how it was fought, the
j changes and innovations jt brought about but it will also deal with
the results of the war outside the sphere of fighting. Particular
attention will be given to those economic factors in the present war
which have led to the adoption by all the belligerents of new meas
ures to" safeguard their national welfare. Articles will also be writ
ten to tell of any newrdiscojjerierproeressih
For instance, in surgery, aviation, submarine warfare and public
hygiene there have been developments of primary importance.
These and any other advances in knowledge will be fully dealt with.
This will virtually make the New Volume a supplement to the
Encyclopaedia Britannica itself. Whether peace shall be made this
year, next year, or the year after, the additional new matter will
bring the contents of the Britannica abreast of the world's knowledge
as it stands when peace has been made. i
The date of publication will b: as soon as possible after the end
of the war.
