How Uric Acid Causes Gout, Kheumatism, Lumbago
(By L. H. SMITH, M. D. )
It was not until the discovery by Sir Arthur Gerod, in 1848, that the blood of gouty patients contained
uric acid in an excessively large amount, that much attention was paid to this subject. Later scientific men
learned that in gout, also rheumatism, the kidneys do

network 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
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

I have a friend so very strange and
wonderful to know.
Her eyes are deep, I love to watch
the wonder in them grow;
And when she speaks the air vibrates
with music soft and low.
Sometimes I am afraid of her I fear
the scornful shine
Deep in the stormy eyes of her, a
strange unspoken sign
That she is friend to many, but I
may not call her mine.
Sometimes I chafe beneath her rule
when all the world is gay,
And venture out alone without her
and to point the way,
And mingle with the many on the
high road gone astray.
Sometimes I can but feel her breath
upon the breezes blown;
Her name is Truth but when I feel
her fingers in my own
And know that she has read my soul
I feel that I have grown.
