ONE OF TWO WAYS.
Tho bladder was created tor ono pur
pose, namely, a receptacle for tho
urine, and as such It Is not liable to
any form of disease except by ono of
two ways. The first way Is from Im
perfect action of tho kidneys. Tho sec
ond way Is from careless local treat
ment of other diseases.
Unhealthy urlno from unhealthy kid
neys la the chief causa ot bladder
troubles. So tho womb, like tho blad
der, was created for ono purpose, and
If not doctored too much is not liable
to weakness or disease, except In rare
cases. It is situated back ot and very
closo to the bladder, therefore any
pain, disease or In-convenltnco mani
fested In the kidneys,' back, bladdor
or urinary passage Is often, by mis
take, attributed to female weakness
or womb trouble of some sort. The er
ror Is easily made and may be as asl)y
avoided. To find out correctly, set
your urine aside for twenty-four hours;
a sediment or settling indicates kid
ney or bladder trouble. The mild and
tho extraordinary effect of Dr. Kilm
er's Swamp-Root, the great kidney,
and bladder remedy is soon realized.
If you need a inedlclno you should
have the best. At druggists fifty cents
and one dollar. You may havo a
