of the commission on Friday by Dr.
Babcock that the names of the owners
of the several tracts of land making
up the new site for the asylum would
be announced In several days.
The concurrent resolution providing
for the asylum commission named the
members for only one year. The com
mission is preparing its report which
will be submitted to the next general
assembly. It is very probable that the
commission will be reappointed from
year to year until the plan of improve
ment has been consummated.
The sum to be paid for tue new site
will be approximately 150.000. The
plan of improvement will very likely
require an appropriation from year to

MOW TO CURE RHEUMATISM.
It I? an Internal Disease and Reqoires
an Internal Remedy.
The cause of Rheumatism and kin
dred diseases is an excess of uric
acid In the blood. To cure this terrible
disease this acid must be expelled and
the system so regulated that no more
acid will be formed in excessive
quantities. Rheumatism is an internal
disease and requires an internal reme
dy. Rubbing with Oils and Liniments
will not cure, affords only temporary
relief at best, causes you to delay this
proper treatment, allows the malady
to get a firmer hold on you. Liniments
may ease the pain, but they will no
more cure Rheumatism than paint
will change the fibre of rotten wood.
Science has at last discovered a per.
feet and complete cure, which is call
ed "Rheumaclde." Tested in hundreds
of cases, it has effected the most mar
velous cures: we believe it will cure
yon. Rheumaclde "gets at the Joints
from the inside." sweeps the poisons
out of the system, tones up the stom
ach, regulates the liver and kidneys
and makes you well all over Rheu
