were in very bad

bottles of nnothes

day. I was in tcrriblo shape, was disturbed
eight to twclvo times in a night and Buffered
excruciating pain and there would bo a
thick brownish sediment. I was despondent.
At hut I saw 'Anuria' advertised in a
Kansas City paper and I thought it just
suited my caso so I sent to Dr. Pierce's
Invalids Hotel, Buffalo, N. Y., for a trial
pnekago, which was ten cents. I took two
tablets at night and felt much better in the
morning ana by tho second morning I
didn't feel any pain at all when voiding tho
kidsoy secretion. In a week thero was no
sediment in tho water, and it has been
normal ever sinco. That was eighteen
months ago. therefore it would bo hard to
