organs interferes with man as a motor
mechanism. If you will 'clean the
stomach, liver and bowels occasionally
with a gentle Isxative you ean keep
well. Too much fuel in man 's machine,
such as eating too much meat, or alcohol
or tea. nervous overwork, and lack of
exercise in outdoor air bring constipa
tion and bad health. Eat less meat,
plenty of vegetables, and with fresh air
and good exercise you need little, else. If
the liver needs rousing and most of

vegetable extract of the leaves of aloe,

ly, our. highly nervous way of living
brings increased storege of uric acid in

when it accumulates in system we suffer
from headaches, backache, neuralgia, lum

larity of the water or burning sensations
or the painful twinges of rheumatism aud
gout., .
Oct rid of this urio acid poison by
taking a harmless medicine called
Antiric, which throws out the uric acid
by, stimulating the kidneys. Drink a
pint of not water before meals and
take Anurie (double strength) after
meals and at bed time. An u rie is a
recent discovery of Dr. Pierce, Chief of
Staff at the Surgical Institute, Buffalo,
N. Y. Anurie can be obtained at almost
any drug store. In tablet, 0c, or Bend
