What To Ito.
There is comfort in the knowledge so
often expressed, that Dr. Kilmer's
Swamp-Root, the great kidney remedy,
fulfills almost every wish in correcting
rheumatism, pain in the back, kidneys,
liver, bladder and every part of the urinary
passage. 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 ne
cessity of being compelled to go often
through the day, and to get up many
times during the night. The mild and
immediate effect of Swamp-Root is
soon realized. It stands the highest be
cause of its remarkable
health restoring prop
erties. If you need a.
medicine you should
have the best. Sold by J
druggists in fifty-cent;
and one-dollar sizes. Hom 'of"Swimp.fi?oir
