DON'T SUFFER WITH
Rheumatism.
THERE IS A CURE!
Shaker Preparations positively cures rheu
matism by going direct to the cause of the disease:
removes the cause and stops the effect. Rheuma
tism is a blood disease caused by an excess of uric
acid in the blood, which clogs the kidneys, pre
venting them from filtering properly the uric acid
settles around the joints. Pam follows. Fever
sets in and you hate rheumatism. Shaker medi
cines neutralize the uric acid, purifies the blood
and corrects the kidneys, assisting nature to cast
out the impuritjes in a natural manner, through
the proper channels. Take Haas Shaker Tonice
and Oil according to directions, rub where the pain"
is with the Shaker Oil, take the Tonic internally
and we will guarantee to cure your rheumatism.

Letter From Rev, Corkern.
Hot Springs, Ark., Oct. 11.
Dear Editor.-
Wife and 1 are
here wife being treated for rheu*
matism. I am staying with her
to carry her to and from the
bath house as she cannot walk.
I think she is improving already.
Hot Springs is a wonderful
place, it being between the
mountains and where there is" a
valley thereis a street. Some of
the springs are so hot you ban
hardly drink the water and others
cold. There is a public spring
'~Tbe Waverly," and you can see
peopleatall times f'day going
to and fromn that sping with
ta.# rt d 4 It
It reminds me of Jacob's w
where Jesus met the Samari
woman and gave her the wa
of everlasting life.
Wha I ase the ladies comla
the springs with vessels it
me think of Abraham's as
at the well, where he fouidna
becca, and she became
wife. Some of the.
built upon the sides
tains. They digaiap
the side of
build on thek
reminds ne of
