Do You Get Up

Kidney Trouble Hakes Toa Miserable
Almost everyone knows of Dr. Kilmer s
Swamp-Root, the great kidney, liver and
bladder remedy, be
Icause of its remark
able health restoring
Root fulfills almost
every wish in over
pain in the back, kid
neys, liver, bladder
and every part of the
urinary passage. It
corrects inability to
hold water and scalding pain in passing it,
or bad effects following use of liquor, wine
or beer, and overcomes that unpleasant
necessity of being compelled to go often
through the day, and to get up many
times during the night.
Swamp-Root is not recommended for
everything but if you have kidney, liver
or bladder trouble, it will be found just
the remedy you need. It has been thor
oughly tested in private practice, and has
proved so successful that a special ar
rangement has been made by which all
readers of this paper, who have not al
ready tried it, may have a sample bottle
sent free by mail, also a book telling
more about Swamp-Root, and. how to
find out if youhave kid
ney or bladder trouble.
When writing mention
reading this generous
offer in this paper and J
send you'' address to;
