ills. Kidney weakness brings these
discomforts In age or youth, and la
a dangerous thing to neglect lot It
leads to Bright' disease and uric

Hartford old people. Ask your
neighbor. You will make no mistake
by following the example of L. P.!
Turner, retired farmer, Clay St.,

given November 16, 1911.)
On January 25, 1(21, Mr. Turner
