she( would( grow worse again. She was obliged
to u.se the urinal as nmany as fifteen times in
at night, an(i was growing worso daily. At
this tune 1my attenition was cailled to Hunt's

uI-inig one bottlo she was a good deal bettor,
the inlfflmmration was reduced, nnd tho water
more ntuiral. Sho began to gaIn in appetite
and fe!t no pain in th o ack and kidneys.
Shiietould attend to her household work

After using six hiottles she was completely
