AIDS WEAK KIDNEYS
The symptoms of kidney and blad
der troubles arc often very distressing
and leave the system in a run-down
condition. The kidneys seem to suf
fer most, as almost every victim com
plains of lame back and urinary
troubles which should not be neglect
ed, as these danger signals often lead
to more dangerous kidney troubles.
Dr. Kilmer's Swamp-Root, which so
many people say soon heals and
strengthens the kidneys, is a splendid
kidney, liver and bladder medicine,
and, being an herbal compound, has.
a gentle healing effect on the kidneys,
which is almost immediately noticed
in most cases by those who use it.
A trial will convince anyone who
may be in need of it Better get a
bottle from your nearest drug store
and start treatment at once.
However, if you wish first to test
this great preparation send ten cents
to Dr. Kilmer & Co., Binghamton, N.
Y., for a sample bottle. When writing

BEST WAY TO WASH THE HAIR
We find you can bring out the
beauty of your hair to its very best
advantage by washing it with Can
throx. It makes a very simple, in
expensive shampoo, which cleanses
the hair and scak thoroughly of all
the dandruff, dirt and excess oil,
leaving a wonderfully clean, whole
some feeling. After its use you will
find that the hair dries quickly and
evenly, is never streaked in appear
ance and is always bright, soft and
fluffv: so fluffy, in fact, that it looks
more abundant than it is, and so soft
that arranging it becomes a pleasure.
Just use a teaspoonful of Canthrox,
which you can get from any good
druggist, dissolve it in a cup of hot
water; this makes a full cup of sham
poo liquid, enough so it is easy to
apply it to all the hair, instead of
just the top of the head. Advertisement.

Thysicians the world over recom

of vastly more importance than out

pores do not absorb impurities into
the blood, causing ill health, while the
pores in the ten yards of bowels do.
Men and women are urged to drink
each morning, before breakfast a
glass of hot water with a teaspoonful
of limestone phosphate in it, as a
