THE GREAT kIDNEY REMEDY
PROVES ITS MERIT
It gives me great pleasure to say a good
word for Dr. Kilmer's Swamp-Root be.
sause it has cured ine of a severe case of
Kidney Trouble. I had suffered for some
fve years with this trouble, and more
especially for the first three months of
Physicians prescribed for me, but with-.
out much success, and any relief obtained
was only temporary. I had severe pains
In my back and at no time was I free of
pain. When I stooped down it was with
some difficulty that I could straighten
my body again. I could not lift any
weight of conisequence without great
pain. I would be compelled to arise and
give the bladder relief. A friend of mine
advised me to take Dr. Kilmer's Swamp
Root, whereupon I wrote to Dr. Kilmer
for a sample bottle which so benefited me
that I was led to believe it would be a
great help to me. Accordingly I pur.
chased two bottles of Swamp-Root from
Air. A. P. Perry, my Druggist, and the
effect has been truly marvelous.
I feel like a new man and have every
reason to believe that I am cured, and
that no other medicine could have accom
plished so much. Now I can raise a
heavy load, can bend my back over my
desk all day, and feel none the worse for
it. In view of the foregoing facts, I
sincerely trust that this testimonial may
reach some of those who are suffering
after the manner before described and
that it may convince them that the merit
of this great medicine should be given 9
fair trial in their case.

The book still stands, brilliant and

it, was first claimed by her own

struggles against poverty, her pitiful
attempts to earn a living by keeping
school, taught her something of the
harshness of the outside world. "In

father, he abandoned himself to every
