Saved $8,024 in Food;
Des-rite the fact that the epidemic
of influenza made it very hard to car
ry on a rat-killing contest in Ruth
erford county, Mr. C. C. Proffitt, coun
ty agent, reports that the boys and
girls in his county did kill a total of !
4,012 food eaters during the contest
which he recently conducted. Author
ities of the agricultural extension ser
vice at Raleigh figure that a single rat
will destroy 2 worth of food in a
year. According to this, , Rutherford
county has saved $8,024 worth of ifood
by the simple elimination of 4,012 rats.
Have you ever stopped to reason why
it is that so many products that are ex-
j kensively. advertised, all at once drop out
I of -sight and are o.on:."forgotten? The
(reason is plain the article did not fulfij
the promises of the manufacturer. This
ipplies more particularly to a medicine.
A medicinal; , preparation that has real
surative value almost sells itself, as like
in endless chain - system the remedy- is
recommended by those .who have' been
benefited,' to those who are ill need of it.
,A prominent druggist says, "Take for
example ' Dr. Kilmer's Swamp-Root, a
preparation I have sold for many years
ind never hesitate, to recommend, for in
ilmost every case it shows excellent re
sults, as many of my customers testify.
No other kidney remedy that I know of
has so large a sale." s
According to sworn statements and
rerified testimony of thousands who have
used the preparation, the success of Dr.
Kilmers' Swamp-Root is due to the fact
that so many people claim, it fulfills al
most every wish in overcoming kidney,
liver and bladder ailments, corrects ur
inary troubles and neutralizes the uric
acid which causes rheumatism.

Those of us who are past middle age
are prone to eat 'too much meat and in
consequence deposit lime-salts in the
arteries, veins and joints. We often
suffer from twinges of rheumatism or
lumbago, sometimes-from gout, swollen

slightest need of this, however, as the
new prescription, Anuric," is bound
to give immediate results as it is many
times more potent than lithia, in ridding
the impoverished blodd of its poisons
by way of the kidneys. It can be ob
tained at almost any drug store, by
simply asking for "Anuric" for kidneys
or backache. It will overcome such
conditions as rheumatism, dropsical
swellings, cold extremities, scalding and
burning urine and sleeplessness due to
constant arising from bed at night.
