presages a severe attack an attack in force by
the main body so there is a general feeling of
apprehension, dullness, the "blues," giving notice
of a coming uric-acid attack a fear of something
going to happen; headache, vertigo, high-colored,
over-acid urine and something does happen!
Nature is simply giving warning that there'a go
ing to be an uric-acid "explosion." This uric acid
poison accumulates within the body and suddenly
is driven in. an attack on the surrounding tissue
structures, resulting is an actue attack of gout,
neuralgia, cramps, rheumatism, or out of the body
entirely by way of kidney and bowels (urine be
coming cloudy with urates). For this reason, one
should take warning and avoid the severity of
the attack by taking a simple, safe and harmless
remedy. Drink plenty of hot wafer between meals,
and take "Anurie," double strength, after meals.
"An uric" tablets stimulate the proper working
of the elimipative organs and insure the removal
of the waste products from the body; thus the
severe attack is avoided, or in a few days the
severe pains of lumbago, rheumatism, neuralgia
disappear and one is "tip-top" again. This
"Anurie" was the discovery of Dr. Pierce and his
able corps of Physicians at the Surgical Institute
in Buffalo, N. Y., where you can obtain trial pack

When the kidneys feel like lumps of lead, when

times more potent than lithia, eliminates uric add as hot water melts sugar.

of age. I suffered from backache, weak back, rheumatism and could not con
