The Newest Discovery in Chemistry
This is a recent discovery of Dr.
Pierce, who is head of the Invalids'
Hotel and Surgical Institute at Buffalo,
N. Y. Experiments at Dr. Pierce's
Hospital for several years proved that
there is no other eliminator of uric
aeld that can be compared to It. For
those easily recognized symptoms of
Itflammation-as backache, scalding
urine and frequent urination, as well
as sediment in the urine, or if uric
acid in the blood has caused rheuma
tism, it is simply wonderful how sure
ly "Anuric" acts. The best of results are
always obtained in cases of acute
rheumatism in the joints, in gravel
and gout, and tnvariably the pains and
stlfRaes which so frequently and per
sistently accompany the disease rap
idly disappear.
