The Blood is the Life
Thus said one of the greatest physicians of modern times. If
the Blood is pure, then the individual is strong and healthy. -. If the
blood is impure, then there is sickness and decay in the whole
system. The duty of the Kidneys is to filter the blood, yhich.
circulates . through them for that purpose, cleansing it from all im
purities, worn-out matter and uric acid, collected in its journey from
the heart through the system. To purify the blood we must first
be sure that the Kidneys are in order. We cannot get pure water
from a foul filter, neither can we get pure rich blood from diseased
Kidneys. If the Kidneys are out of order, they cannot filter the
imparities and uric acid from the blood,, resulting in Rheumatism,
gout, pain in the back, urinary troubles and kindred diseases.
IRVING'S BUCHU WAFERS cure Rheumatism to stay cured, bj
removing the cause. They put the Kidneys in a healthy condition,
enabling them to discharge the blood to the heart pure and healthful,
with all uric acid, the presence of which in the blood is the cause
of Rheumatism and all other blood diseases, eliminated. Mr. John
Knowton's experience, which he relates in a recent letter, is just
the same as many others who have written in thankfulness for their
cure. Mr. Knowlton's says :
"A a sufferer from chrcnlc Rheumatism for nearly twenty year. I think
I may safely say that I have tried almost a hundred remedies old women's
recipes, physicians' prescriptions and patent medicines. Many of them relieved
tne for a time, but the first slight cold brought back the Rheumatism. One day
I picked up a circular of Irving' Buchu Wafers and started to read it. I was not
much Interested at first, but when I began to read how the kidneys were re
sponsible for Rheumatism. I began to pay attention and the common sense
statements made such an impression that I immediately bought a box. Well. I
took the whole bos and had no Rheumatism far a month, but a slight cold
brought it back, but not so bad as previously. This encouraged me, and I bought
' six boxes. I took them all faithfully, and it Is now nine months since I had a
twinge of the Rheumatics, so that I feel that I am really cured. After the
experience that I ha with other so called remedies for Rheumatism, you wilt
understand how glad I am to be able to tea ify to the merits of It-ring's Buchu
Wafers. They certainly did all that is claimed for them ia my case."
IRVING'S BUCHU WAFERS are nature's own remedy for
the cure of Bright' Disease, Congestion of the Kidneys, Bladder
troubles, Dropsical Swellings, Gout, Gravel, Jaundice, Diabetes,
Female Complaints and Irregularities, and are a positive cure for
all Diseases and Blood Impurities which are directly or indirectly
traceable to deranged action of the Kidneys. They are- pleasant to
the taste, being sugar coated, and are prepared by the Irving Drug
Co., Philadelphia. Price, fifty cents. There are many imitations
of the IRVING'S BUCHU WAFERS on the market, but do not
be satisfied with anything but the genuine.

Word has come to W. A. Meese, of
the library board that the long de
layed book stacks for the new Car
negie building were shipped Dec. 16
from Jamestown, N. Y.. by the Art
Metal Construction company. The bill
of lading has already been received
and the expectation is that the stacks
will reach this city some time this
week. The arrival of the stacks will
settle the problem as to the dedica
tion of the institution. The work of
removal from the old building is com
pleted and the books now stand on
the old shelves in quite the same posi

This plan was followed that the books
might suffer from removal.
