SAYS SKIN PORES ARE CLOSED
j^ffegRiaBgTpl RE MAIN 8 IN'
?
Rheumatism is no respecter of age,
sex, color or rank. If not the most
dangerous of human afflictions, It Is
one of the most painful. Those subject
to rheumatism shoud' eat less meat,
dress as warmly as possible, avoid any
undue exposure,' and, above all, drink
lots of pure water.
Rheumatism is caused by uric acid
-which is genrated In the bowels and
absorbed into the blood. It is the func
tion of the kidneys to filter this acid
from the blood and cast it out in the
urine; the pores of the skin are also
a means of freeing (he blood of this
impurity. In damp and chilly, cold
weather the skin pores are closed, thus
forcing the kidneys to do double work,
they become weak and sluggish and fall
to eliminate this uric acid which keeps
accumulating and circulating through
the system, eventually settling in the
joints and muscles, causing stiffness,
soreness and pain called rheumatism.
At the first twinge of rheumatism get
from any pharmacy about four ounces
of Jad Salts; put a tablespoonful in a
glass of water and drink before break
fast each morning for a week. This is
said to eliminate uric acid by stimulat-1
Ing the kidneys to normal action, thus !
ridding the blood of these impurities.
Jad Salts is inexpensive, harmless
and Is made from the acid of grape?
and lemon juice, combined with lithia
and Is used with excellent results by
thousands of folks who are subject to
rheumatism. Here you have a pleasant,
effervescent llthia-wnter drink which
overcomes uric acid and is beneficial
to your kidneys as well.

Be Dismissed Early.
The services at the Presbyterian
church will he dismissed tonight in
ample time to give those who desire
to attend the number of the Normal
school lecture course to be given to
night an opportunity to do so.
Too Cold for School.
The Miller school has had trouble
with the heating apparatus during the
cold weather of the present week"and
have been obliged to dismiss all of
the,morning sessions of the school,
however, the building warms up suf
ficiently to allow the afternoon sos?
sions to proceed as usual. It is thought
the difficulty will be overcome in the
near future.

WASHINGTON*. D. C., Dec! 16.?For
what it Is worth this Item Is given.
About the only value It has Is that th?
subject has been sprung and seriously
talked where the remnants of the na
tional leadership of Col. Roosevelt's
party aro wont to assemble In all the
solemnity of a "wake." Briefly It is
to the effect that to keep a spark of
life in the Progressive cadaver, why
not get behind W. Jennings Bryan as
a Presidential candidate In 1916? Why
not? He is for prohibition and votes
for women, and so is the Progressive 1
party?or was. What tliat party
needs is a strong personality, one that
can magnetise votes; it has the prin
ciples at hand, it is argued by those
back of this fantastic talk. The col
onel will BOt run again; indeed, It
may be best that he should not. Per
haps, ho Is over run, or run out. At
any rate Bryan would bo a new per
former In the Progressive show, and
with the Progressives nominating him
first he should be able with his pop
ularity in the Democratic party to
land the nomination of that party. Be
sides, with the colonel out of it, how
Is the wreck of the party to he saved
from the grasping hands of "the same
old Bill" Sulzer, who Is suspected of
having designs on it for his own use
two years lionce, and the expanding
"submerged Issue" on national lines
in 1910 unless Bryan be the straw of
salvation that is grabbed ? They
think they see signs of Bryan getting
out of the Cabinet, and why not ral

another campaign? It would be ab
surd to print this feverish dream of
politics but for one thing; It is ac
tually being seriously talked hy men
who are members of the inner coun
cils of the third party movement
men who were associated with the
management of that party's national
congressional headquarters here in the
recent campaign. That Is the one and
only excuse to be offered for the dis
semination of this paragraph.
If since, November 4 last, you had
been receiving mall to the volume
of 100 letters a day from admiring
fellow citizens arguing that you should
run for the United States Senate or
for the Governorship of your state,
what would likely be your answer? It
is pretty certain that you wouldn't
be in a hurry with it, for an answer
like that takes in so very many im
