IF KIDNEYS IM
Take Salts to flush Kidneys
and neutralize irritat
Kidney and Bladder weakness result
from uric acid, says a noted authority.
The kidneys filter this acid from the
blood and pass it on to the bladder,
where it often remains to irritate and
Inflame, causing a burning, scalding
sensation, or setting up an irritation
at the neck of the bladder, obliging
you to seek relief two or three times
during the night. The sufferer is in
constant dread; the water passes
sometimes with a scalding sensation
and is very profuse; again, there is
difficulty in avoiding it.
Bladder weakness, most folks call lt t
because they can't control urination!
While it is extremely annoying and
sometimes very painful, this is really
one of the most simple ailments to
overcome. Get about four ounces of
Jad Salts from your pharmacist and
take a tablespoonful In a glass of
water before breakfast; continue this
for two or three days. This will neu
tralize the acids In the urine so it no
longer is a source of irritation to the
bladder and urinary organs, which
will then act normally again.
Jad Salts is inexpensive, harmless
and Is made from the acid of grapes
and lemon juice, combined with lithia,
and is used by thousands of folks who
are subject to urinary disorders caused
by uric acid irritation. Jad Salts is
splendid for kidneys and causes no
bad effects whatever.
Mere you have a pleasant, efferveb
j cent lithla-water drink, which quickly
i relieves bladder trouble. —Advertise-

BACKACHE IS '
A DANGER SIGNAL
Kidney Troubles, Bladder Dis
orders, Rheumatism, and
Serious Diseases Follow
The kidneys get clogged up, the
same as- the bowels do. Then they be
come sluggish, and only filter or strain
out a part of the waste or poisonous
matter, all the rest remaining In th«
blood and poisoning the system.
As soon as you notice the flrst in
dications of backache, pains in the
sides, or aches around the kidneys, or
if the urine is light and pale, dark
colored, cloudy, thick, or has an offen
sive odor, burns, Is scalding or irreg
ular in passage, take a little Croxone
three times a day and end these trou
bles before they become more serious.
There is no more effective remedy
known for the prompt relief and cure
of kidney, bladder troubles and rheu
matism than Croxone. It soaks right
into the kidneys through the walls
and lining; cleans out the clogged up
pores; neutralizes and dissolves the
poisonous uric acid and waste matter
that lodge In the joints and muscles
and cause those terrible rheumatic
pains, and makes the kidneys filter
the poison from the blood and drlva it-m
out of the system.
A few days' use of this new scien
tific preparation is often all that ia
ever needed to end the worst back
ache or overcome the most annoying
You will find Croxone entirely dif
ferent from other remedies. It is so
prepared that lt is practically impos
sible to take it without results. An
original package costs but a trifle and
all druggists are authorized to return
the purchase price if it should fail In
j a single case.—Advertisement.
