Washington from Ocala in the spring

learned that in gout, also rheumatism, the kidneys do
not work properly to throw off the uric acid poison ;
consequently uric acid crystals are deposited in and
about the joints, in the muscles, where an inflam-,,
mation is set up in the nearby tissues.
Hague has said, that "gout is rheumatism, and
rheumatism is gout." If uric acid is formed in excess
within the body it is passed on to the kidneys, which
act as a filter to pass off this poison. If the excess is
not excreted by the kidneys, it is distributed thru the
tissues. The choice sites for such storage are in the
joints, muscle-sheaths, where the circulation is weak weakest,
est, weakest, and where also the alkalinity of the blood is lowest.
Consequently, we must do everything to throw off this
uric acid poison, and simple methods are best. Flush
the kidneys by drinking six to eight glasses of water
between meals. During winter months the circulation
is apt to be sluggish and the blood stream retarded,
Eat less meat, drink more water, and take ANURIC
(double or triple strength), after each meal and at
