Diet, Exercise or Death!
An eminent medical authority writes
that most of our city folks die of a thick
ening of the arteries or of kidney dis
ease. The kidneys become clogged and
do not filter the poisons from the blood,
and one trouble follows another, high
blood pressuro damages the heart, arteries
and kidneys. Usually its danger signals
are backache, pain here or there, swollen
feet or ankles, rheumatic twinges or
spots appearing before the eyes.
"The veiy best remedy is this. ' Eat
meat but once a day, or not at all. Plenty
of outdoor exercise, and drink pure
water frequently. Before meals take a
little Anuric, the great uric acid neu
traliser that is easily obtained at the
drug store. When you have dizziness,
chi or sweating, worry, or dragging
pains in back, try this wonderful enemy
to uric acid, which Dr. Pierce of Buffalo,
N. Y., discovered and named Anuric.

Is a compliment to his honor in a way
which seems curious to Americans.
The preceding president, Gomez, now
a leader in the revolt, had promoted
military men of his party wholesale,
without regard to merit. When Meno
cal was elected, conservative army
officers, brought up in Cuban ideas,
expected their turn for promotion at
the expense of their rivals had come.
But Menocal decided that for the good
of Cuba the merit system must be up
held. This had the effect of alienating
conservative army officers without at
taching to him any large part of the
liberals. A good share of the army
became disaffected, claiming that the

Cubans, too, are ready for a revo

't prosperous. They have been rolling

n this prosperity a cause for keeping
id the peace and letting the prosperity

e- to go on a spree. Of course, that is
is not the attitude of the planters add
ie merchants, who are mostly Conserva
id tives, but it is the point of view of
the Liberal masses.
of The Liberals think they have a good
't- cause in the undoubted corruption of
