THE GREATEST KIDNEY REMEDY
ON EARTH," SAYS A
I want to tell you how much good
'Our Swamp-Root did me. About (our
years ago 1 suffered from what the
doctors called fistula and for two years
of that time I endured what no tongue
esn tell. I also had inflammation of the
bladder and I tried doctors' nx-dirine
without receiving any help. Some one
told me about Dr. Kilmer's Swawp
Boot. After giving it a thorough trial, I re
ceived relief, so kept on using it and to
day I am a strong und well woman. If I
aver feel badly or out of norts, 1 take
Swamp-Root and it always straightens
ma out. I houesaly believe thst thii
medicine would cure all troubles you
recommend it for and it is a pleasure for
me to send my testimony and photo

Swamp-Root b one uf the greatest medi
