SHOOT AGAINST U.S. IN RUSSIAN CAPITAL Soldiers Prevent Demonstra. tion Before American Em bassy in Petrograd. HEADED BY NIKOLAI LENTO Petrograd, April 23. (Via London, ADril 25.) An effort by a small groun of ultra radicals to make an uti friendly demonstration before the American embassy today was frus trated by militiamen as the radicals marched down the Nevsky Prospect on their way to the embassy. The demonstration was headed by N'ikolai Lenig. the radical socialist leader, who recently arrived here through Germany from Switzerland with a safe conduct from the German authorities. The demonstration is said to have been due to the alleged killing in America of an anarchist named Mooney, who was under sen tence in San Francisco. A guard was sent by the authorities to protect the embassy. The Mooney referred to in the foregoing probably is Thomas J. Mooney, who is under sentence of 'i for connection with the bomb A -,ion in July, 1916, in which sev c. persons were killed.

What drives the men right up to the trenches in this war is courage, and it's red blood that "puts the heart" in the man. Did any one ever see a puny, thin-blooded man ever rush into the fight with any chance of winning out? With rich, pure blood you can face any hardship, reach any goal. But you are handi capped in the race of life without it. Every tissue, bone, muscle, should take from the blood certain materials and return to it certain others. This process Insures perfect health. When the poisons accumulate in the blood, perhaps the face breaks out in pim ples, or boils appear on the neck, and we feel languid, tired, our vitality is at a low ebb, and we easily catch cold. It's time to take an alterative ex tract and blood-purifier taken from Nature's forests. Such a one is made up of Golden Seal, Blood and Stone root, Oregon Grape and Queen's root extracted with glycer ine and made into sugar-coated tab lets or liquid, and this has been sold by druggists for the past titty years as Dr. Pierce's Golden Medical Dis covery. It's always efficacious in the spring when the blood is run down and you need a wholesome tonic. Try this old-fashioned but re liable remedy, without alcohol! If you are occasionally troubled with rheumatic pains or lumbago, pain in the back, toes or muscles of the body, this is due to uric acid stored in the system. The liver and kidneys do not act properly. For such a person, I advise taking Anuric (double strength) three times daily for a week or two. This Anuric throws out the uric acid which accu mulates, and if taken occasionally will prevent or cure rheumatism and gout. There is no difficulty in ob taining Anuric at any drug store.

The Stomach and Health It is far better to have n empty purse, a good stomach and be hun gry, than to have wealth, no appetite and indigestion.
