He said the pains he used to have from this rheumatism wgre simply awful. Sometimes his knees and hips were stiff and sore, but the pains were mostly in the back of his neck and across his shoulders. Now, however, his suffering is entirely gone and he says the change is due to taking RHU-AID. “Oh! What relief!”, states this man. “Why don’t other rheumatic sufferers get RHU-AID.” RHU-AID is a new formula. It contains Three Great Ingredients, so it is almost like taking three medi cines in one. It goe$ right to the source of rheumatic aches and pains. Miserable people soon feel different all over. So don’t go on suffering! Get RHU-AID. Hauenstein & Son Drug Store.

Stunt Flier Puts On Final Show Mike Murphy, head of the Ohio Oil Co.’s aviation department at Findlay and a prominent stunt flier, apparently meant what he said when he made his final exhibition of acrobatic and precision flying on the last day of the recent Cleveland air races. To prove it, Murphy sold his plane to Beverly Howard, Orange burg, S. C., exponent of the ham merhead stall, who won the national acrobatic title at Cleveland. The Findlay man, holder of a string of flying championships, taught American soldiers how to pilot glider planes, and, as a colonei in the Army Air Forces, is credited with having landed the first glider in France in the Nor mandy invasion. Presumably henceforth he will confine his flying to the more con ventional type. “I am not a daredevil or a stunt flier,” Murphy always has insisted. “I fly for precision.” Indict Ex-Justice For Embezzlement The Hancock County grand jury returned an indictment against Charles C.
