A WEIRD PROCESSION. [Newspaper Article] — Birchip Advertiser and Watchem Sentinel — 14 January 1914

A WEIRD PROCESSION. Five hundred snake-charmers, sounding weird notes on their pipes, formed the unusual yet picturesque procession that followed to his grave Katch Sarak, a man of big renown in his business, who died in terrible agony as the result of a cobra bite received while practising his profes sion in the neighborhood of Garden Ueach, India." "Guru," or god, he had become dub bed by the people amongst whom he lived, such was his influence over poisonous reptiles. His services were sought recently by a neighbor who had missed rnauy fowls from his com pound. Going at dusk one day, the snake-charmer discovered a cobra of unusual size amongst the birds, so formidable, in fact, that he postponed his attempt to capture it until day light, when he was successful in se curing it. i Instead of dispatching the snaite at once, he took it to the local bazaar for the edification of the natives. On attempting to extract Us fangs, the cobra wriggled free and darted at its captor, who was b...

Bad Health. J l One of the most general causes of bad health is the inefficient action o! the kidneys and the liver. It is the function of the kidneys and liver to deal with certain waste polGona which are being continuously manufactured in our bodies, and, when the kidneys and liver are inactive or diseased, these waste poisons remain in the sys tem, and cause us to suffer from rheu matism, gout, neuralgia, lumbago, backache, sciatica, "blood disorders, anaemia, indigestion, biliousness, jaundice, sick-headache, general debil ity, gravel, stone and bladder troubles. The reason that Warner's Safe Cure lias proved so eifective in the above mentioned complaints is that the me licine heals and restores the kidneys uid liver to health and activity when :he uric acid and other waste poisons ire duly expelled from the body :hrougli the natural channels.
