BIBMINBHAM CITIZEN SWEARS
TO REMARKABLE STATEMENT'
I want to tell you what Dr. Kilmer's
Swamp-Root did for my wife. She was
troubled with terrible pains in her back
and they were such that it deprived her
of many night's sleep. There was a thick
red sediment. in her urine like brick dust.
The passage of the urine was very annoy
ing, being of a burning sensation and the
comp'leation was making her very thin
and weak. The medicine which the doc
tor gave her did not seem to help her
and she was finally persuaded to try Dr.
Kilmes Swamp-Root. I purchased one
bottle of the large size for her and it helped
nier. greatly. After she had taken three
bottles, she did not have any more trouble
with 'her kidneys. It has been seven
years since she' took Swamp-Root and she
is now wall and healthy At the time of
her kidney trouble, she weighed 130 pounds,
and she now weighs 185. My wife is 32
years of age .and cheerfully recommends
,Dr Kilmer's Swamp-Root to her friends
and feels very thankful that she found a
remedy, with such wonderful merit.

publish this in any way you wish.

st THE MALARIA MONSTER
If the mosquito were as big as it is bad, it would darken
the air like a gigantic death-breathing dragon. Each sting
of a mosquito sows the germs of malaria. These germs
t multiply with wonderful rapidity. Then come chills and
~t- fever with other forms of malaria that undermine the health
a- and sap the strength.
--a bottle proves.
ct It is the modem malaria medicine and the one sure
rn antidote for malaria poisoning. it kills the chills. It
rn quenches the fever fires. It stamps out the cause and
e - consequences of the disease. That's only the beginning of
id helpful healing work. of OXIDINE. It builds up the body,
revitalizes the system, enriches the blood, tones up the
stomach, bowels, liver and kidneys. OXIDINE puts the
body on a fighting footing of superb health.
The tonic qualities of OXIDINE make it the best
se medicine for all weak, run down, thin, pale persons. It is
the best body-building tonic money can buy.
