go into history as one of the most

estimated by the enormous number

Dr. Hobbs' representative was

that being the rase? Go for the
cause. Get your kidney in perfect
working order, and away will go the
rneumatism, because when your kid
neye, whose duty it is to filt-r a 1
poisons and impurities from the
blood, removes the uric acid, the
cause of the rheumatism will be gone
and the rheumatism with it.
