Kidney trouble preys upon the mind, dis
courages and lessens ambition: beauty, vigor
_. _ and cheerfulness soon
I * A . disappear when the kid
neys are out of order
-- Kidney trouble has
become so prevalent
that it is not uncommon
for a child to be born
Safflicted with weak kid
\ - neys. If the child urin
- ates too often, if tthe
urine scalds the flesh or if, when the child
reaches an age when it should be able to
control the passage, it is yet afflicted with
bed-wetting, depend upon it. the cauce of
the difficulty is kidney trouble, and the fir-t
step should be towards the treatment of
these important organs. This unrleazant
treuble is due to a diseased condition of the
kidneys and bladder and not to a habit as
most people suppose.
Women as well as men are made mis
erable with kidney and bladder trouble,
and both need the same great remedy.
