Thousands Have Kidney
Trouble and Never
Applicants for Insurance Often
Judging from reports from druggiiti
Who nro constantly in direct touch with
the public, there it one preparation that
has been very successful in overcoming
thcto conditions. The mild nnd healing
infiuenco of Dr. Kilmer's Swamp-Hoot it
oon realized. It elands the highest for
its roninrknhlc record of success.
An examining physician for one of the
prominent Life Inurance Companies, in
an interview on the subject, made tho as
tonishing statement that one reason why
o many applicants for insurance are re
jected is because kidney trouble is so
common to the American people, and the
large majority of tliosp whose applications
are declined do not even suspect that they
have the disease. Dr. Kilmer's Swamp
Hoot is on sale at all drug stores in bottles
of two sizes, medium nnd large.
However, if you wish first to test this
great preparation fend ten cents to Dr.
Kilmer & Co., Ulnghamton, N. Y., for

SWEET BILL AIDS THOUSANDS
Measure Passed at Close of Sixty.
Seventh Congress Benefits Many
The lives of nearly ten thousand
World war veterans will be saved, or
at least prolonged, by the passage of
the Sweet bill Just at the close of the
Sixty-seventh congress, according to
American Legion olllclnls. Tho United
States veterans' bureau has highly
commended the activity of the Ameri

for the veterans, are sweeping. Per
haps that feature which struck out of
the former law the word "pulmonary",

reaching. The previous law limited

More elastic rulings affecting dis
barred veterans were Included In tho
act. These provide that discharge on
the grounds of "mornl turpitude" nnd
"persistent misconduct" would not tils
bar thQ soldier from receiving compen
sation unless he wns found guilty by
court-martial. A further provision of
this section Is that If an Injury wns In
curred In nn enlistment previous to tho
one during which the veteran was dis
charged, that this would not dlsbnr
him from compensation.
Tho Sweet net also provides that, In
cases where a deceased vetern leaves
lnsullkient funds to pay funeral ex
penses, the government will pay $100,
and an additional $." for tho cost of a
flag with which to drape the casket.
A further provision will keep the bod
ies of many veterans from potters'
fields, for the government will prepare
nnd transport homo or to national
cemeteries the bodies of ex-servleo
men who were receiving government
medical, surgical or hospital treat
