Tells Rheumatism Sufferers
Take Halt and iet Rid
of Uric Acid
Rheumatism Is no respecter of
age, sex. color or rank. If not the
-most dangerous of human afflic
tions it is one of the most pain
ful. Those subject to rheuma
tism .should eat less meat, dress
as warmly as possible, avoid any
undue, exposure and, above all,
drink lots of pure water.
, Rheumatism is caused bu uric
acid which .is generated in the
bowels, and absorbed into the
blood. r It is the function of tbe
kidneys to filter this acid from
the . blood and cast it out in the
urine; the pores of the skin are
also, means of freeing the blood
of thjs Impurity. In damp and
chilly, cold weather the skin pores
are closed, thus forcing the kid
ney S; to do double work, they be
come weak and sluggish and fall
to eliminate this' uric acid which
keepe accumulating and circulat
ing, through the system, eventu
ally settling . in the joints and
muscles -causing stiffness, sore
ness and pain called ;rhematisf.
At the first twings of rheuma
tism, get, from any pharmacy
about four ounces of Jad Salts;
put a. tablespoonf ul In a glass of
water.. ajid drink before break
fast, each morning for a week.
This is said to eliminate uric acid
by stimulating the kidneys to
normal . action, thus ridding the
blood of these impurities.
- Jad, Salts Is inexpensive, harm
less and is made frpm the acid of
grapes and lemon Juice, com
blned with lithla pnd is used with
excellent, jresults by thousands of
folks who are subject to rheum

first Robin Appears
and Sings Merry Song
. The very first robin of the
spring was out on exhibition
Saturday morning. He was wat
erlogged with the heavy, cling
ing, snow, almost like Uncle Keke
with 3-year-old boots and a cot
ton nmbrella. His covering was
not built for the kind of snow
that prevailed; and he was hun
gry and the tire . had gone out
and his wife was . at home cry
ing for bread. He was hunting
as well as an amazed robin knew
thow to bant in the face of such
a burst of weather. And about
all be found was a less wet place
under.-a. sheltering fir where he
could wonder . what) it was all
about. '
But he was a genuine robin,
the very first of the year. And
be sang a genuine robin's song
no, the Statesman man isn't a
bird man and can't say it In print
Just as the robin did; but it was
the cheerfullest little song that
any one ever hear coming out of
the heart of a snowstorm. Hls-J
breast was as red as they ever
get and he looked mighty good,
and his song sounded .like a mil
lion dollar's worth of good cheer

The church , was full to capacity.
The program consisted of singing
and talks by the boys of the depu

ed the various churches, in some
of them conducting the boys' Sun
day school classes.
It was given out that the bovs
of the deputation team and the
H.l-Y boys were going to hike to
Monapo lake. Considerable specu
lation as to the whereabouts of
this lake was indulged in. It was
not until afterwards that it was
discovered that the bike took the
boys into the canyon south of Sil
verton known as Small canyon
and that the lake was supplied by
the immaginatlon of the deputa
tion team.
Saturday afternoon the deputa
tion team defeated the Oranbe

Denton, Littler, Thomas Are
Speakers Before Commer
cial Club Yesterday
Speaking to the luncheon of
fathers and sons held at the Com
mercial club Monday noon. Wal
ter A. Denton, scout commission
er, said:
"We can remain boys as long
as we wish. It is all in the way
we feel about things, both men
tally and physically.
"Boys have good ideas, al
though their enthusiasm gets the
better of them occasionally. How
ever, it was but a few years ago
that we men were just boys.
"Just as soon as we nun be
gin to sit by the fire of evenings,
we begin to ossify and our use
fulness Is ended. We begin to
make life a serious matter as
f-oon as we begin to say, 'Is it
worth while.
"Every boy wants to do some
thing worth while, and he is
looking to us older men for guid
ance." R. H. Thofas, deputy scout
commissioner of Portland, told
how Sir Robert Baden-Powell con
ceived the idea of Boy Scouts
from his observations during the
Boer war.
Referring to the good work of
Boy Scouts, Mr. Thomas said that
last summer at Alsea, when a log
pinned a man to the earth and
broke his leg. it was a Boy Scout
who was the only, one who knew
how to administer first aid and
saved the man's life.
"It takes backbone and not
wishbone to make good Boy
Scouts." MrJ Thomas declared.
"It takes team work with the
executive officers and committee
men and parents and the boys."
Regarding those who may at
times be discouraged, Mr. Thomas
"There are times when yoa
,will feel your efforts are non-pro
ductive and you will get the per
fectly natural blues. It was said
of Jonah that he was down in
the mouth once, but those of you
who read the Bible know he came
out all right. I imagine it was
there we got the old adage, You
can't keep a good man down. "
