Fill n. bottle or common glass with
urine and let It stand twenty-four
hours; a sediment or settling Indicates
a diseased condition of the Kidneys.
When urine stains linen It la positive
evidence of kidney trouble. Too fre
quent desire to urinate or pain In the
back, Is also convincing proof that the
kidneys and bladder are out of order.
WHAT TO DO.
There Is comfoit In tho knowledge
so often expressed, that Dr. Kilmer's
Swamp Root, the great kidney remedy
fulfills every wish in relieving pain In
the back, kidneys, liver, bladder and
overy part of the urinary passages. It
corrects inability to hold urine nnd
scalding pain In passing It, or bad ef
fect following use of liquor, wine or
beer, and overcomes that unpleasant
necessity of being compelled to get up
many times during the nlgh't to uri
nate. The mild and the extraordinary
elfect of Swamp Root Is soon realized.
It stands the highest for its wonder
ful cures of the most distressing cases.
