How to FiudOut.
Fill a bottle or common glass with
nrine and let it stand twenty-four hours ;
a sediment or settling indicate an un
healthy condition of tbe kidneys. When
urine strains linen it is evidence of kidney
trouble. Too frequent desire to urinate
or pain in the back, is also convincing
proof that tbe kidneys and bladder are
out of order.
What to Do.
There is comfort in the knowledge so
often expressed, that Dr. Kilmer's
Swamp-Root, the great kidney remedy
fulfills every wish in relieving pain In
the back, kidneys, liver, bladder and
every part of tbe urinary passages. It
corrects inability to hold urine and scald
ing pain in passing it, or bad effects fol
lowing use of liquor, wine or beer, and
overcomes that unpleasant necessity of
being compelled to get np many times
during the night to nrinate. The mild
and the extraordinary effect of Swamp
Root is soon realized. It stands the!
highest for its wonderiul cures of the
most distressing cases. If you need a
medicine you should have the best. Sold
