A FIGHT FOR LIFE
It has been fight or die for many of us
In the past and the lucky people are
those who have suffered, but who are
now well because they heeded nature's
warning signal In time to correct their
trouble with that wonderful new discovery
of Dr. Pierce's called "An-u-rlc." You
should promptly heed these warnings,
some of which are dizzy spells, backache,
Irregularity of the urine or the painful
twinges of rheumatism, sciatica or lum
bago. To delay may make possible the
dangerous forms of kidney disease, such
as Eright's disease, diabetes or stone In
To overcome these distressing condi
tions take plenty of exercise In the open
air, avoid a heavy meat diet, drink freely
of water and at each meal take Dr.
Pierce's Anuric Tablets (double strength).
You will, in a short time, find that you
are one of the firm lndorsers of Anuric,
as are thousands of neighbors.
Step Into the drug store and ask for
Anuric, or send Dr. V. M. Pierce, Buffalo,
N. Y., 10c for trial pkg. Anuric, many
times more potent than llthia, eliminates
uric acid as hot water melts sugar. Adv.

Hair that loses its color and lustre,
or when It fades, turns gray, dull and
lifeless, is caused by a lack of sulphur
in the hair. Our grandmother made

to keep her lockB dark and beautiful,
and thousands of women and men who
value that even color, that beautiful
dark shade of hair which Is so at

Nowadays we get this famous mix

Ingredients by asking at any drug
store for a 60-cent bottle of "Wyeth'i
Sage and Sulphur Compound," which
darkens the hair so naturally, bo even
ly, that nobody can possibly tell It
has been applied. You Just dampen
a Bponge or Boft brush with It and
draw this through your hair, taking
one small strand at a time. By morn
ing the gray hair disappears; but
what delights the ladles with Wyeth's
Sage and Sulphur Compound, Is that,
besides beautifully darkening the kalr
after a few applications, It also bring
back the gloss and lustre and gives It
an appearance of abundance.
