Ever since the discovery of Scheele in 1775 that uric acid was found within the body most eminent physicians agree that rheumatism is caused by it; also many distressing symptoms &s headache, pain in back, stomach distress, swollen feet and ankles, gout, etc. It was Dr. Pierce of the Invalids' Hotel, Buffalo, N.Y., who discovered a newaent called Anuric, a harmless remedy that if taken before meab will carry off the uric acid from the system and in this way the pains and aches, the creaky joints and all the distressing symptoms of rheumatism and other maladies disappear. You can easily prove this your self by obtaining Anuric at almost any .rug store, or send Dr. Fierce 10c. for trial package. Try it and be convinced that Anuric is many times more actire ..
