More Sick People
There are more people who are
sick or ailing at present than was
ever known in the history of the
world before. There is a reason
for it. Rules of health are vio
lated and symptoms are neglect
ed. Did you live according as
nature intended you would be
free from aches and pains, but
you have violated her laws and
you must pay the penalty.
The majority of people who
are ailing complain of their back
being weak and aching, and then
with their kidneys. When we
hear a person complaining of
impure blood, pain in back, back
ache, pains in joints or hips,
rheumatism, loss of appetite, or
flesh, liver complaint, constipa
tion, biliousness, torpid liver,
foul breath, sour stomach, poor
digestion, coated tongue, dys
pepsia, heart burn, weakness,
nervousness, distress after eat
ing, tired and sleepless, and all
such things, we know that that
person is physically out of fix
and needs medicine. We know
the system is wrong and the or
gans of the body are not per
forming their functions. The
kidneys are out of tune with the
other organs. They are the filt
ters of the body and they are
ever busy, working night and
day, whether we are awake or
asleep. Nearly all the fluid in
the food we eat-the water and
fluids we drink-must pass
through the kidneys before en
tering the bladder as urine.
Unhealthy urine from un
healthy kidneys is the chief
cause of the above-enumerated
troubles, If the kidneys are in
a healthy condition then it must
follow that general good health
and buoyant spirits is the result.
However, if there be an un
healthy condition of these or
gans, however slight some, or
all of the above ailments will as
sent themselves, when no tine
should be lost in taking steps to
remove the cause, which may
be easly accomplished by taking
"Hallum's Backache and Kid
ney Pills," the greatest known
kidney, liver and bladder re
medy. Put up and sold by the
Pickens Drug Co., sole distribu!

One Dose for Coughs
Children cough at night? Give them Ayer's Cherry Pee
