Such an account is opened in two names,

of death of one, the account is held sub

the necessity of any legal formality.

KEEP URIC ACID
' OUTJF JOINTS
Tells Rheumatism Sufferers to Eat
Less Meat and Take Salts.
Rheumatism is easier to avoid
than to cure, states a well-known
authority. We are advised to dress
warmly; keep the feet dry; avoid ex
posure; teat less meit, but drink
plenty of good Water. '
Rheumatism is a direct result of
eating too much meat and other rich
foods that produce uric acid which is
absorbed into the blood. It is the
function of the kidneys to filter this
acid from the blood and cast it out in
the urine; the pores of the skin are
also a means of freeing the blood of
this impurity. In damp and chilly
cold weather the skin pores are closed
thus forcing the kidneys to 'do double
work, they become weak and Iuggish
and fail to eliminate the the uric acid
which keeps accumulating and Circu
lating through the system, eventually
settling in the joints and muscles,
causing stiffness- soreness and pain
At the first twinge of rheumatism
get from any pharmacy about four
ounces of Jad Salts; put a tableapoon
ful 'in a glass of water and drink be
fore breakfast each morning for a
week. This is said to eliminate uric
acid by stimulating the kidneys to
normal action, thus ridding the blood
of these impurities.
Jad Salts is inexpensive, harmless
