It has been pointed out that it would
be impossible for the single-track rail
roads of the Pacific Coast to handle
large bodies of troops and the muni
tions that would be required to defend
the Pacific Coast. It is said that if
the -railroads could handle the troop
trains they could not deliver them to
points on the Coast line where at
tacks might be expected. Friends of
the highway urge that a more mobile
handling of. troops would be had
through the construction of the high
way and the use of automobiles.
Boundaries Proposed. Terminals. .
It is proposed to construct the high
way a short distance back of the Coast
line. Its northern terminal would be
at the Canadian line and its southern
end at Mexico.
No estimate of the cost of the project
has been attempted.

Kidneys if Your Back
Noted Authority Says Uric Add
From Meat Irritates
Meat forms uric acid which excites
and overworks the kidneys Jn their ef
forts to filter it trom the system. Reg
ular eaters of meat must flush the kid
neys occasionally. You must relieve
them like you relieve your bowels; re
moving all the acids, wastes and poison,
else you feel a dull misery in the kid- i
ney region, sharp pains in the back or
sick headache, dizziness, your stomach
sours, tongue Is coated and when the
weather is bad you have rheumatic
twinges. The urine is cloudy, full of.
sediment: the channels often get irri
tated, obliging you to get up two or
three times during the night.
To neutralize these irritating acids
and flush off the body's urinous waste
get about four ounces of Jad Salts
from any pharmacy; take a table
spoonful in a glass of water before
breakfast for a few days and your kid
neys will then act fine and bladder
disorders disappear. This famous salts
is made from the acid of grapes and
lemon Juice, combined with llthia. and
has been used for generations to clean
and stimulate sluggish . kidneys and
stop bladder irritation. Jad Salts is in
expensive; harmless and makes a de
lightful effervescent llthia-water drink
which millions of men and women take
now and then, thus avoiding serious
kidney and bladder diseases. Adv.
