(By . a Staff Correspondent.)
Washington, June 29. (Special
Telegram.) The Japanese mission
shortly to arrive in this country will
pay a visit to Omaha on its trip to
the national capital.
This information was ascertained
today through a call on Third Assist
ant Secretary of State Breckinridge
Long, by Congressman Loebeck and
Commissioner Manley of the Com
mercial club of Omaha.
While the decision of Secretary
Baker in regard to considering Fort
Crook or any other site in Nebraska
for a location of one of the canton
ments in the Central west was dis
heartening the members of the Com
mercial c,lub committee remaining in
Washington, decided to do what they
could toward obtaining numberless
activities for the city in which they
are enthusiastically interested and
which will be essential in a national
way in the next year or two.
Others Are Invited.
Incidentally, Mr. Manley, who is a
believer in pushing the city wherever
possible, and Congressman Lobeck
had a conference with Brickmnage
Long of the State department, at
which they gave him assurance that
the Belgian or .Russian war mis
sions now in this country would in
clude Omaha in their itineraries, they
would receive the warmest hospital
ity from Omaha and its citizens. It
was out of this general suggestion to
Mr. Lone, who has been designated
as "chief of foreign missions visiting
the United States," that the coming
Japanese mission became uppermost.
Mr. Manley hied with commission
er of Immigration Caminetti today a
request as the representative ot
Omaha's commercis' organization
that that states of Nebraska and Iowa
be made an independent immigration
district instead of being continued as
nart of the St. Louis district. The
commissioner stated that when there
were sufficient funds to justify the re
quest he would give Omaha serious

An Enemy in Ambush
(By UK. Bl- V. uvius.i
Tt was not until the discovery by
Si Arthur Oarrod. in 1848, that the
blood of gouty patients contained
uric acid m an excessively large
amount, that much attention was
paid to this subject. Later scientific
men learned mat in gout uvc
in rheumatism! . the Kidneys do not
work properly to throw off the uric
acid poison; consequently urn; cm
crystals are deposited in and about
the joints, where an inflammation is
set up in the nearby tissues. When
for any reason the circulation is slug
gish, as in the joints of the toes,
crystals formed from uric acid are
deposited there, and one suffers from
gout; or, when deposited in the tis
sues, one suffers from muscular rheu
matism. My only medicine to counter
act the uric acid and to throw it out
of the system is tablets of Anuric
(double strength), three times a day.
The nain in the back, lumbago,
pain in the neck, creaky joints, stiff
ness in muscles, have all been proven
to be caused by uric acid poison in
the blood and tissues. The kidneys
soon become diseased, then there
often follows disease in the muscles
of the heart.
Kidney disease carries away a large
nercentacre of our people. What is to
be done? What can the ordinary per
son do to properly balance bodily
health? The answer is easy. Eat less
meat, eat coarse, plain food, with
plenty of vegetables, drink plenty of
water between meals, and take an
uric acid solvent before meals for
awhile, such as Anuric (double
strength), obtained at almost any
drug store. It was nrst discovered by
Dr. Pierce of the Surgical Institute
in Buffalo. N. Y. Most every one
troubled with uric acid finds that
Anuric dissolves the uric acid as hot
water will dissolve sugar. Ady
