startling disclosures as to tne

by Judge Glasgow, attorney for
Taylor's testimony showed that
Orasgow had persuaded him to
make this affidavit on the pre
tense that it was only to assist
the boy in clearing up his reputa

He said Louis Engstroin had
forced his way into his confid

filially led him to Glasgow for "a
little legal advice." When Glas

of Pierce county, will retain his

Progressive members had pre

The election committee made

Worried over the loss of his
watch, $40 In cash, ana most of

sailor, 39 years old, waa round
wandering about lower Paclltc
avenue at 5:30 o'clock this morn

Two hours later two other
sailors, friends of the sufferer,
appeared at the station with
Mike's clothes, his watch and nrs
money, all of which they had
taken from him, they said, in an
effort to get him to bed.

It Is needless to suffer any
longer with rheumatism, and be
all crippled up, and bent out of
shape with its heart-wrenching
pains, when you can surely avoid
Rheumatism comes from weak,
inactive kidneys, that fail to fil
ter from the blood, the poisonous
waste matter and uric acid; and
it is useless to rib on liniments
or take ordinary remedies to re
lieve the pain. This only pro
longs the misery and can't possi
bly cure you.
The only way to cure rheuma
tism is to remove the cause. The
new discovery, Croxone, does this
because it neutralizes and dis
solves all the poisonous sub
stances and uric acid that lodge
in the joints and muscles, to
scratch and irritate and cause
rheumatism, and cleans out and
strength-ens the stoppod-up, inact
ive kidneys, so they can filter all
the polKon from the blood, and
drive it on and out of the system.
Croxone is the most wonderful
medicine over mado for curing
chronic rheumatism, kidney trou
bles, anid bladder disorders. You
will find it different from all oth
er remedies. There is nothing
else on earth like it. It matters
not how old you are. or how
long you have suffered, it is prac
tically impossible to take it into
the human system without results.
You will 1 find relief from the first
few doses, and you will be sur
prised how quickly all your mis
ery and suffering will end.
An original package of Croxone
costs but a trifle at any first-class
drug store. All druggists are au
thorized to sell it on a positive
money-back guarantee. Three
dosea a day for a few days is
often all that Is over needed to
cure the worst backache or over
come urinary disorders.
