is, therefore, much meaner of the
whites to bo guilty of such a

In One Day.
ONE OF TWO WAYS.
The bladder was created for one pur
pose, namely, a receptacle for the
urine, andas such it is not J'able to
any form of disease except by ooe of
two ways. The first way is from im
perfect action ol* the kidneys. The
second way is from careless local treat
ment of other diseases.
Unhealthy urine from unhealthy
kidneys is the chief cause if bladder
troubles. So the womb, like the blad
der, was created for one purpose, and
if not doctored too much is not liable ,
to weakness or disease, except in rare
cases, lt is situated back of und very
close to the bladder, therefore any
pain, disease or inconvenience mani
fested in the kidneys, back, bladder or
usinary passage is often, hy mistake
attributed to female weakness cr
womb trouble of some sort. The error
is easily made and may be as easily
avoided. Io find ont correctly, set
your urine aside for 21 hour; a
sediment or settling indicates kidney
or bladder trouble. The mild and tne
extraordinary efFect of Dr. Kilmer'a
Swamp Koot, tv.e great kidney
and bladder reine ly, is soon real
