BRITISH PREMIER HAS A MODEST SALARY He Has Hard Work to Get Along on $19,250 a Year, So Says Her bert H. Asquith. London, Feb. 8. The premier of Great Britain has a hard time of It trying to pay his bills on a salary of ii.OOO pound a year and his pay ought to be raised, says the former prime minister, Herbert H. Asquith, who ought to know for he occupied that po sition for 11 years. As far as known; Mr. David Lloyd George has not ask-d for a raise in pay but his remuneration has been the subject of an inquiry conducted by a committee of Parliament which also is examining into the salnries of all the British cabinet ministers. Mr. Asiuitli told the committee that the office of the premier of Great Brit ain is a vcrv expensive one and his duties can not be properly discharged by an expenditure limited to that amount. The former prime minister added, that he, himself, was a much poorer man when he left office than when he entered it. Mr. Asquith explained that the pre mier had to do a great (leal of enter taining and afford hospitality to all sorts of conditions of people both at home and abroad but," under the exist ing arrangement, he had to defray this j;xpent entirely at his own cost. Kven if a government hospitality fund should be provided for entertain i i;:jr.,;l,..l f Ar..ifTnr Mr. As king tUBllliuiauvu " ,-. - - ? quitli was tfPathe opinion that the pre mier's salary ought to be advanced. Mr. Asquith bad few words to say about the privilege which the premier has of occupying the ollieial residence at 10 Downing street. "It is quite true." he said, "that you live in the hmise free from rent, rates and taxes, but it is a very expensive house to keep up; it i a very inconven ient house in many ways; it requires a large staff and I 'suspect myself that any prime minister who had experience of "it as T had would, if he were of fered the choice, rather not live in it at all" The salary of the premier of Great Britain at -present rate of exchange is equivalent to $10,A". This compares with a salary of 7.V000 and S2S.000 expenses for the president of the Unit ed (States; W0,000 francs salary and a similar amount for expenses for the president of France and 100,000 marks aalary and B00,(M0 marks expenses for the president of Germany. Members of the cabinet of the pres ident of the I'liited Nutes receive $12,- year.

When you wake up with backache and dull misery in the kidney region it generally means you have been eat ing too much meat, says a well known authority. Meat forms uric acid which overworks the kidneys in their effort to filter it from the blood and, they be come sort of paralyzed and logy. When your kidneys get sluggish and clog you must relieve them, like you relieve your bowels; removing all the body' urinous waste, else you have backache, sick headache, dizzy spells; your stom ach sours, tongue is coated, and when the weather is bad you have rheumatic twinges. The urine is cloudy, full of sediment, channels often get sore, water scalds and you are obliged to seek re lief two or three times during the night. Either consult a good, reliable phy sician at once or get from your phar macist about four ounces of Jad Salts; take a tablespoonful in a glass of water before breakfast for a few days and your kidneys will then act fine. This famous salts is made from the acid of grapes and lemon juice, combined with lithia, and has been used for genera tions to clean and stimulate sluggish kidneys, also to neutralize acids in the urine so it no longer irritates, thus end ing bladder weakness. Jad Salts is a life saver fot regular meat eaters. It is inexpensive, cannot injure and makes a delightful, effer vescent lithia-watcr drink. Adv.
