nature of disease can thus be obtained.
If backache, scalding urine or frequent
urination bother or distress you, or if
uric acid in the blood has caused rheu

kidney or bladder trouble just write Dr.

medical advice after Dr.Pierce's chemist
has examined the urine this will be
carefully done without charge, and you
will be under no obligation. Dr. Pierce
during many years of experimentation
has discovered a new remedy which be
finds is thirty-seven times more power
ful than lithia in removing uric acid
from the system. If you are suffering

Four Jumps From Paris
To Salonica Trenches
By William O. Shepherd.
(United Proas staff correspondent.)
Salonicn, Oct. 31. (By mail.) The
four jumps from Paris to tho Salonika
front take three weeks; they are full
of waits, interest and excitement, of
submarine dodging, sightseeing. Per
haps you'd like to take the trip. John
McOutcheon, the American cartoonist,
and James H. Hare, veteran wnr pho-togrttiher,-aro
in the party.
Very well! It's 10 at 'night in the
P. L. M. station in Paris and you're
climbing into the sleeping car. You've
been worrying, Four days ago you re
served berths and paid a bonus to your
hotel for securing them. As tho train
pulls out you discover that the car is
practically our private car. Few folks
are traveling toward Italy in war
time. You ask the porter for a detachable
lamp for your berth.
"Haven't you got any extra ones!"
"This is war time."
"That's silly," you say angrily.
"Say! I used to run ou the Orient
al express from Vienna to Constanti
nople," says tho French porter, who is
also conductor. "Didn't I use to see
you hanging around Vienna!"
"Never been, in Vienna," you lie.
But what he has said cools you down;
he's practically telling you that if you
don't shut up about the berth lamp
he'll charge you with being an Aus
trian spy. Hii's got the drop on you;
you're nothing but a poor, helpless' for
eigner in France in war timo. So you
go to bed without tho lamp; no chance
of reading yourself to sleep this night.
There's a dining car hitched on for
breakfast. But there' o nothing but
coffee und bread; no eggs, no bacon
"it's the war!"
There's no diner for lunch. Same
reason. For Buprter you jump off at a
station, buy a cold chicken, pickles and
bottled wutor and get the crumbs all
over the carpet of your compartment.
The second morning you're in Rome.
Your trunk doesn't show up. It's back
in Paris. Same reason as no eggs.
