Says Glnsn of Salts Helps to
" Overcome Rheumatism i '
, Acid. ; . ! .
Rheumatism is easier to avoid
than to cure, states a well-known
authority. We are i advised" to
dress warmly, keep 'the! feet dry.
avOId ' exposure, and above all.
drink plenty of good water and
avoid eating sweets of all kinds.
Rheumatism Is caused by body
waste and acids resulting from
food fermentatlou.. It is the
function of the kidneys to filter
this poison from the blood and
cast it out in the urine: the
pores- of the : skin are also . a
means otf freeing the blood of
this Impurity. In damp and
chilly i cold , weather the skin
pores fire closed. , thus forcing
the kidneys to do double -work ;
they .become weak and sluggish
and 'fail to eliminate this waste
and - acids, which - keeps accumu
lating . and . circulating through
the, system,, eventually settling
in the, joints ; and - muscles, caus
ing stir mess,: soreness and pain,
called rheumatism i
At the first twinge of rheu

about four ounces of Jad Salts;

Thla is helpful to neutralise

so to stimulate the kidneys, thus

declared Mr. Willat. The two
small 'power .boats were loaded.

in the bow .and was . manned by
Bob Kortman, Vincent Higgins,
Jack Graham, John Hanson and
Otto Hansen , , , r
, Both boats chased the whale for
an hour, the cameramen stationed
On the "Traveler" cranking now

fired a onepound shell Into the

sounded. By.?thls time the other
boat had reached .the spot. The
men stood, harpoons, in hand, and
when their prey came up, again
it was at a distance. - The : next
time hie came 'up they were more
