Traveling Is Dangerous.
Constant motion jars the kidneys
which are kept in place in the body by
delicate attachments. This is the reason
that travelers, trainmen.street car men,
teamsters and all who drive very much
suffer from kidney disease in some form,
Foley's Kidney Cure strengthens the
kidneys and cures all forms of kidney
and bladder disease. George II. Hau

writes,"Constant vibration of the engine
caused me a great deal of trouble with
my kidneys, and I got no relief until I
