URIC ACID IN MEAT
CLOGS THE KIDNEYS
Take a glass of Salts if your Back
hurts or Bladder bothers you
Drink more water.
j If you must have your meat every
day, eat it, but flush your kidneys
with salts occasionally, says a noted
:authority who tells us that meat forms
uric acid which almost paralyzes the
kidneys in their efforts to expel it
frotn the blood. They become slug
gish and weaken, then you suffer with
a dull misery in the kidney region,
sharp pains in the back or sick head
ache, dizziness, your stomach sours,
'tongue is coated and when the weath
er is bad you have rheumatic twinges.
The urine gets cloudy, full of sedi
ment, the channels often get sore and
irritated, obliging you to seek relief
two or three times during the night.
To neutralize these irritating acids,
to cleanse the kidneys and flush off
.the body's urinous waste get four
ounces of Jad Salts from any pharma
cy here; take a tablespoonful in a
fclass of water before breakfast for a
few days and your kidneys will then
act Cine. This famous salts is made
from the acid of grapes and lemon
juice, combined with lithia, and has
been usefi for generations to flush and
stimulate sluggish kidneys, also to
neutralize the acids in urine, so it no
Jonger irritates, thus ending bladder
.lad Salts is inexpensive; cannot in
jure, and makes a delightful effer
vescent lithia-water drink.

Variety of Santas
Does a littie tot four or five years
old and a firm believer in Santa Claus
feel like a person sudenly thrust into
a camp where a dozen living Gods are
This must be the case in Richmond
where many stores have secured San
ta Clauses of their own.
Richmond is now furnishing the
market with every variety of Santa
Claus obtainable. Thin, portly, tall,
short, congenial or reticent Santa
Clauses can be found to suit the taste.
However, the most popular of all the
Santas is one who fills all require
ments and the hearts of the children
at once go out toward him.
He is a big fellow and his face has
the proper degree of redness which
the frigid temperature of his Arctic
home is portrayed in pictures to have
given him. Big of girth, he smiles
down at the children, for he loves
them and he has a number of his own
and can appreciate just what the little
ones expect in the Santa Claus line.

Claua is now," said one little girl when

she had just left the biggest Santa
Claus and espied one of less generous
proportions in another store. She de
manded an explanation and insisted
until her mother told her that the
hard work of the holiday Beason was
telling on this popular denizen of the
Shy little children who are afraid
of even their father's friends, welcome
Santa Claus as a close friend, as close
even as their parents and one in whom
confidences can be placed at this time
of the year.
Little round eyed girls walk slowly
up to Santa Claus with letters over
which many tedious minutes have
been spent and with wonderment and
awe at the sight so rare as that of
Santa Claus, they hand him their mis
sives. Others romp up to him, seize his
coat and try to dance around with
him, a thing which he must do to re
main in their good graces, even
though his dancing days are long past.
He has temporarily lost his dignity
