Rheumatism is in reality an internal inflammation. It is caused by an excess of urio

because of indigestion, chronic bowel disturbance, weak
and sluggish condition of the system. The refuse or waste matter of the body, which
should be carried off bv the usual avenues of bodily drainage, is left the system because
of these irregularities, and it ferments and sours, forming uric acid and other impurities,

with which it is filled into the muscles, nervea, joints and bones. This
