Gentlemen: Some two years ago 1 was so run down tliat I lackcd strcngth, had no appetitc and

I had to get up many tim'es during the night to urinate and go oftcn tlirough the day. Aftcr having the
best physicians prcscribe for me witlioqt relicf, I decided from my symptoms that the medicine I.
needed was Dr. Kilmer's Swamp-Root, the gi'cat kidney, livcr and bladdcr remedy. Aftcr trying a
sample bottlc with good rcsults, I purchased six bottlcs of the rcgular sizcj and aftcr taking them was
entircly curcd. Swamp-Root is a wonderful remedy whcn a man is not fceling well, aftcr cxposure or
loss of sleep and irrcgular meals. It is also a great medicine to tone up a tnan's system. Other mem
bers of the police forcc are using and recommending Swamp-Root. They, like myself,'cannot say too
much in praisc of this great remedy.
The ofTiccrs (whose signatures accompany this lctter), as well as myself, thank you for the good
