It Is needless to suffer any longer
with rheumatism, and be all crippled

rub on liniments or take ordinary
remedies to relieve the pain. This
only prolongs the misery and can't
possibly cure you.
The only way to cure rheumatism
is to remove the cause. The new
discoverey, Croxone, does this because
it neutralises and dissolves the poi

medicine ever made for curing chron
ic rheumatism, kidney troubles, and
bladder disorders. You will find it
different from all other remedies.
There is nothing else on earth like it.
It matters not how old you are, or
how long you have suffered, it is
practically impossible to take it into
the human system without results.
You will find relief from the first few
doses, and you will be surprised how

"Beer acted upon by light soon takes up the very
disagreeable so-called "light taste," and also a
repulsive skunk-like odor. Beer so affected is
offensive to the palate of most consumers. Beer
should not be exposed to light, especially to direct
sunlight, as it will thereby be detrimentally affected,
the light having an influence upon the albuminoids
in beer, causes the beer to become hazy."
