IF KIDNEYS IND BLADDER BOTHER Take Salts to flush Kidneys and neutralize irritat ing acids Kidney and Bladder weakness result from uric acid, says a noted authority. The kidneys filter this acid from 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 urination! While lt 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 tralise the acids in the urine so it no longer is a source of irritation to the bladder and urinary organs, which will then act normally again. Jad Salts is inexpensive, harmless and is made from the acid of grapes and lemon juice, combined With llthta, 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.—Advertise ment.

WORKING FOR CONSERVATION" FREBNO, Nov. 14.—Government engineers are making a survey of the San Joaquin valley for the purpose of ascertaining what can be done In the way of conserving water from the Sierras. PIER DISPUTE UP TO CITY ATTORNEY A conference was held in Mayor Rolph's office this morning.. on the question of whether permission should be granted for the construc tion of a J1.000,000 amusement pier at the ocean beach. After two hours of argument lt was decided to ask City Attorney Long to decide the point of jurisdiction and to leave the. question of policy to the supervisors. It developed during the hearing that D. J. Grauman and other local theater owners had a rival plan for the construction of a pier at the beach and were determined to prevent the eastern backers of the original project from obtaining a permit. All members of the park commis .sion, the Supervisors' lands and tun nels and public welfare committees, San Francisco center, California club. Downtown association and other or ganizations were present. Judge Cur tis H. Lind ley said the project pre sented by the Upton brothers was a. laudabie one, but that the park com mission was against commercializing the beach and had ho power to grant such a permit. Supervisor Andrew J. Gallagher cre ated a sensation when he scored the park commission for its failure to im prove the beach' and get it ready for 1915. "You have done nothing," he said, "to provide conveyances amd amusement for the thousands who WIH visit the beach during the fair. Why do you oppose this offer on the part of eastern capitalists to Improve the beach when you will do nothing yourself?" Judge Llndley replied with some heat: "Tf you know anybody who wants my job let me know. The posi tion is honorary, and the task of a park commissioner is certainly not •tstrewn with rose*. An elaborate scheme for making the beach the people's playground, with a variety of amusement and entertain ment features, is suggested to Mayor Rolph by the Santa Francisco Con vention league In a letter expressing its approval of the pier. In Its communication the league de clares that the beach must ulti mately be beautified in a comprehen sive and intelligent manner, and asks that Rolph plaoe the matter in th« hands of the proper commission and invite competition among architects and engineers.
