What To Do.
There is comfort in the knowledge so
often expressed, that Dr. Kilmer's
Swamp-Root, the jjreat kidney remedy,
fulfills every wish in curing rheumatism,
pain in the back, kidneys, liver, bladder
ami every part of the urinary passage.
It corrects inability to hold water
and scalding pain in passing it, or bad
effects following use of liquor, wine or
beer, and overcomes that unpleasant ne
cessity of being compelled to go often
I during the day, and to get up many
times during the night. The mild and
j the extraordinary effect of Swamp-Root
I is soon realized. It stands the highest
' for its wonderful cures of the most dis
tressing cases. If you need a medicine
