If you suffer from torturing rheumatic pains, swollen, twisted joints, and suf fer intensely because your system is full of uric acid, that dangerous poison that makes thousands helpless and kills thous ands years before their time, then you need Rheuma, and need it now. Start taking it today; in -4 hours it will begin to act on kidneys, liver, stom ach and blood, and you can sincerely exclaim: "Good riddance to bad rub bbh." Many people, the most skeptical of skeptics right in this city and in the country hereabouts, bless the day when Root's pharmacy with characteristic en terprise offered Rheuma to the afflicted at a small price and guaranteed money refunded if not satisfied. If you have rheumatism get Rheuma today. Advertisement. N B ! . .
