J THE OIL ENGINE
With the. Exception of the Noise,
Which Can be Silenced, It is an
Efficient Piece of Machinery
All the people living in the "vicinity
of the electric plant are worried by
the noiseof the oil engine. They are
noVto blane for being worried, for
the noise is something fierce.
There are however some other
I things to be taken into consideration.
Apart from the noise it makes, the
oil engine is a good machine. It car carries
ries carries the entire load for the city work,
both light and water. It is the most
economical machine the town can
have. It saves the city hundreds of
dollars in fuel every month.
This would not atone for the noise
it makes, but as. soon as the council
can obtain fuel to run the old plant

very little of the sickness has been

veteran soldiers and commanded by
officers who knew how to look out for

Conditions ; here are not bad. It is
true we have. had quite a number of
deaths from pneumonia owing to
very bad weather, and an epidemic
of-measles. The latter has caused an
over crowding of the camp hospital,
but the situation is being: relieved
and is much improved and there is no
cause for undue alarm on the part of
relatives of the men in camp here.'!

. 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 u gout is rheumatism, and
rheumatism is gout.n 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
