A piece of machinery’ run by steam and
overworked will become cranky, creaky and
out of gear, owing to some expansion of
metal from heat and friction. Stop its
work, rub and brighten and let it rest. In
a short while it will be restored and will
run smoothly. The human system is a
machine. Too much work and worry are
thrown upon it; too much of the heat of
daily cares; too much of the steam of daily
business. The nerves become cranky ; they
are restless, sleepless and twitchy, and a
neuralgic condition sets in. Pain throws
the machine out of gear and it needs rest
and treatment to strengthen and restore.
St. Jacobs Oil is the one remedy of all pe
culiarly adapted to a prompt and sure
cure. So many have so freely testined
from experienc e and use to its efficacy in
the cure of neuralgia that it passes without
saying that it surely cures. It will be a
gracious surprise to many after the free
use of it to iind how easily* pain, cares and
worry may be lifted, and how smoothly
the human machine goes on.

Kidney and Bladder Troubles Quickly Cured
You May Have a Sample Bottle of the Great Discovery, Dr,
Kilmer’s Swamp-Root Sent Free by Mail.
People doctor their troubles and try different medicines so often without benefit
that they get discouraged and skeptical. In most such cases serious mistakes are made
>n doctoring and not knowing what our trouble is or what makes us sick. The unmis
takable evidences of kidney trouble are pain or dull ache in the back, too frequent de
sire to pass water, scanty supply, scalding irritation. As kidney disease advances the
face looks sallow or pale, eyes puffy, the feet swell and sometimes the heart aches badly.
Should further evidence be needed to find out the cause of sickness, then set urine aside
for twenty-four hours; a sediment or settling is also convinc'ng proof that our kidney s
and bladder need doctoring.
The mild and extraordinary effect of Dr. Kilmer's Swamp-Root, the great kidney
and bladder remedy, is soon realized. It stands the highest for its wonderful cures.
Sold by druggists, price fifty cents and one dollar. So universally successful has
Swamp-Root been in quickly curing even the the most distressing cases that if you wish
to prove its wonderful merit you may have a sample bottle and a book of valuable in
