Examine Yocrr Urine Yotst
self Once a Week.
If Suspicious, Take Kidney
Doctors' bills and doctors' visits may be
avoided if tbe hrst threatening signs oi
kidney trouble are recognized and the
Irritation checked at once.
If backache, rheumatism, headaches,
dizzy feelings or frequent desire to urinate
have aroused your suspicions, set aside a
bottle of your morning urine for a couple
of hours. If you find a dark sediment at
the bottom, "brick dust" deposit or par
ticles floating on top, or that the urine is
high colored and of unusual odor, nothing
should tnterefere with your immediately
using Br. I'ettingill's Kidney-Wort Tab
Jets, the one true specilio for kidney all'ec
tions that is prepared la accordance with
he most recent accepted formulas.
Avoid liquid kidney remedies. Alcohol
nters largely into all of them as a pre
servative. It is needless to say the Tab
lets are entirely free from alcohol. They
never fail to stop the gradual weakening
of the kidneys that goes on from day to
day. They are guaranteed to cure inflam
mation of the kidneys, lumbago, pain iu
the back, dropsy of the limbs, rheumatism,
catarrh of the bladder, sluggish or scanty
urine, "brick dust" in the urine, frequent
calls to urinate, bed wetting, "stone,"
malaria, constipation, pain in the urethra
and kidney weakness.
Backache, lumbago, gout, are ali rheuma
tism, and rheumatism is urio acid poison
ing caused by Blnggish, weak or diseased
kidneys. When the kidneys are made
strong by Kidney-Wort Tablets they filter
the acid from the blood and rheumatism
vanishes. The Tablets are the most cer
tain and safe means of curing rheumatism
any physician can prescribe. Other rem
edies may neutralize the acidity and give
a day's relief, but only Kidney-Wort Tab
lets vitalize the kidneys so that the blood
does not again become acid and require
the constant doseing demanded by liquid

Roosevelt fully approves the action ot

intention that the Investigation shah
be sweeping and thorough and that
every charge properly vouched lot
shall be probed to the bottom.
The situation in the department was
considered in its general phase at th
meeting of tbe cabinet, but Fostmastei
General Fayne did not go fully intc

considered the situation at length. I'
is understood Unit the president ex
pressed to Mr. I'nyue his desire thai
tbe investigation should be as search
ing as the Ingenuity of the oilicial
could make it and should be pursued
until the department has been purged
of even the suspicion of dishonesty.
At the cabinet meeting Mr. Payne
praised Fourth Assistant Fostmastei
General Bristow highly for the energy
lie has displayed and the thoroughness
of his work.
