Don't Neglect Kidneys
Swamp -Root, Dr. Kilmer's Prescrip
tion, Overcomes Kidney Trouble
It is now conceded by physicians that
the kidneys uliould have more attention
as they control the other organs to n. re
markable degree and do a tremendous
amount of work in removing the poisons
and waste matter from the system by
filtering the blood.
The kidneys should receive some as
sistance when needed. We take less ex
ercise, drink less water and often eat
more rich, heavy food, thereby forcing
the kidneys to do more work than nature
intended. Evidence of kidney trouble,
such as lame back, annoying bladder
troubles, smarting or burning, brick
dust or f-cdiment, sallow complexion,
rheumatism, maybe weak or lrtegttlar
heart action, warns jou that your kid
neys require help immediately to avoid
more serious trouble.
An ideal lieibal compound that has had
most remarkable i-uccehs as a kidney and
bladder remedy is Or. Kilmer's Swamp
Root. Tlieie is nothing cKe like it. It
is Dr. Kilmer's prcfcnption used in pri
vate practice and it is huie to benefit you.
Get a bottle from your diuggist.

Kilmer & Co., Itinghamton, N. Y., for a
