This fa mous salts is made from the acid of grapes and lemon Juice, combined with lithia and has been used for genera tions to flush clogged kidneys and stimulate them to activity, also to neu tralize the acids in urine so it no longer causes irritation, thus ending bladder disorders. Jad Salts is inexpensive and cannot injure; makes a delightful efferves cent lithia-water drink which all reg ular meat eaters should take now and then to keep the kidneys clean and the blood pure, thereby avoiding ser ious kidney complications.

KLAW & ERLANGER BOOKING REPRESENTATIVES Xew York City SWM NEW OIL TOWN IS FOUNDED Tectervillc, in Greenwood County, Center of Xew Kansas Pool. Eureka. Kan., May 11. The town of Teeterville, in northwest Greenwood county, was in the limelight today as the most important new oil discovery in Kansas. To date, the town consists solely of oil workers and their fam ilies. Discovery of oil sand at least 100 feet thick has led to the belief that the present pool will develop into large dimensions. Two of the eight wells already sunk in the vicinity were brought in within the last two weeks. They show a pro duction of 200 and 32S barrels a day, respectively, of high grade oil. Thirty locations for drilling have been estab lished and twenty-five oil rigs loom against the sky in the Teeter pool. Deepening of wells already drilled will probably determine the thickness of the oil sand. Four Farmers Fight Out Feud. Houston, Tex., May 11.
