such a fine country unless he had to.

in bad taste, untrue and ungenerous.

We" have a good many people here
from northern and western states,
and with few exceptions they have
been of great help. And, with few
ill-bred exceptions, they have never
reminded us of. it. The reason is that
most of them were among the best
in their old homes, and brought their
virtues with them when they came.
The great bulk of the emigration to
Florida, however, has been from other
southern states. Georgia and the
Carolinas lead, Tennessee, Kentucky
and Alabama next. These six states
have given us twice as many people
as all the rest of the Union put to together,

among our leading business and pro professional

Ther is no doubfc that Florida, fifty
years ago, was miserably poor. But
seventy years aso she was far ahead
of Kansas in civilization, prosperity
and progress, notwithstanding she
was just emerging from a war that
was a greater trial to her than any
that Kansas has ever been afflicted
Then came the great civil war, and
when it ended most of Florida's young
men were dead or crippled, most of
her valuable property was destroyed
and worst of all she was afflicted with
a carpetbag government that was
more grievous than any other gov government

civilized country. There were lots of
northern and western people here
then who set the negroes against the
white people, burdened the state with
debt, stole everything they could lay
their hands on and were finally driven
out in disgrace by a combination of
decent northern and southern people.
Meantime, the republican majority in
Kansas did what it could to uphold
the carpetbaggers and when they
were overthrown denounced the white
people as traitors, and kept "up that
denunciation until a comparatively
few years ago.

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 inflammation
mation inflammation 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 xf 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
bed time for several weeks at a time and you will be
free from uric acid and the diseases that follow.
The urine is often cloudy, full of sediment;'
channels often get sore and sleep is disturbed two
or three times a night. This is the time you should
consult some physican of wide experience such as
