Kidney a li4der wealknegreguli
from uric aci4, *ays a noted authority,
The kidneys filter this acid froml the
blood and pass It on to the bladder,
where it often remains to irritate and
inflame, causing a burning, scalding
sensation, or setting up an irritation
at the neck of the bladder, obliging
you to seek relief two or three times
during the night. The sufferer is in
constant dread, the water passes
sometimes with a scalding sensation
and Is very profuse; again, there is
difficulty in avoiding it.
Bladder weakness, most folks call
it, because they can't control urina
tion. While It is extremely annoying
and sometimes very painful, this Is
really one of the most simple ailments
to overcome. Get about four ounces
of Jad Salts from your pharmacist and
take a tablespoonful in a glass of
water before breakfast, continue this
for two or three days. This will neu
tralize the acids In the urine so it 1no
longer Is a source of irritation to the
bladder and urinary organs which then
act normally again.
Jad Salts is inexpensive, harmless,
and is made from the acid of grapes
and lemon juice, combined with lithia,
and is used by thousands of folks who
are subject to urinary disorders caused
by uric acid irritation. Jad Salts is
splendid for kidneys and causes no
bad effects whatever.
Here you have a pleasant, efferves
cent lithia-water drink, which quickly
relieves bladder trouble.-Adv.

PRES.IDENT AESPONDS TO FALL
RESOLUTION AND "SENDS HIS
SUMMARY OF THE EVENTS
Facts Leadilhg Up to Recognition of
Carranza Government Sent to
Senate In Form of Letter.
Washington.-President Wilson has
sent to the Senate his response to the
Fall resolution requesting him to re
port on facts leading up to recognition
by the United States of the Carransa
Government of Mexico. It was in the
form of a letter from Secretary Lans.
ing, summarizing the events which
preceded recognition and transmit
ting a great volume of data.
The President through Mr. Lanoing
declined to comply with that part of
the Fall resolution asking for diplo
matic and consular reports on politi
cal conditions and events in Mexico.
The senate was informed that it was
not compatible with public interests
to furnish this correspondence inas
much as it was of a highly confiden
tial nature and "submitted by consu
lar officers of the United States, by
diplomatic or consular officers of oth
er governments which have gracious
ly consented that their officers might
supply this government with informa
tion during the necessary absence of
American representatives and by oth
er persons residing in Mexico."
As to the ability of Carranza to fut
fill his promises to protect foreign
lives and property, Mr. Lansing said
that under all the circumstances, the
de factor government, which at the
tuma of recognition controlled more
than 75 per cent of Mexico's terri
tory, was affording "reasonable ade
quate protection to the lives and prop
erty of American citizens."
The data disclosed that 76 Amer
cans were killed in Mexico in the
years 1913, 1914, 1915 and compared
with 17 in the three years preceding.
and that 20 civilian Americans and
16 soldiers were killed on American
soil in the last three years as a re
suit of Mexican troubles.
The response to the resolution is
expected to stir up a new discussion
of the Mexican situation in the' sena
ate and too bring a vote quickly on
the nomination of Henry Prather
Fletcher, as Ambassador to Mexico.

Trhe der-ailment of the limited was
caused dl. etly by the dropping of
an arch baa on the rear truck of the
engine as the train approached the

where the track branches off toward
a gravel pit. As the front trhek of
the baggage car struck the open

atod Pays Nicarauga Government
Washington.-The senate by a vote
of 55 to 18 ratified the long-pending
and persistently opposed Nicaraguan
treaty, whereby the United States
would acquire a 99-year option on the
Nicaraguan Canal route and a naval
base in the Gulf of Fonseca for $3,
Included in the ratification resolu
tion was a provision declaring that
the United States in obtaining the
naval base does not intend to vio
late any existing rights in, the Fon
seca Gulf of Costa Rico, Honduras
and Salvador, which had protested
against the proposed acquirement.
Five Democratic senators voted
against the treaty. They were Cham
berlain, Martine, Clarke of Arkansas,
Thomas and Vardaman. Fifteen Re
publican senators joined the adminis
tration forces in support of the treaty.
Immediately after the senate had
acted, Senator Chammorro, the Nic
araguan Minister, said he would at
once communicate with his govern
ment and that he expected ratifica

Senator Clarke of Arkansas led the
Democratic opposition to the treaty,
while the Republican opposition was
headed by Senator Borah and Smith

Oklahoma Solons Throw ink Bottles

Oklahoma City, Okla.-Tumultuous
