Many a Mother in Manning WVill
Appreciate the Following.
Many a strong man and many a
healthy woman has much for which
to thank mother. The care taken
during their childhood brought them
past the danger point and made them
healthy men and women. 'T'housands
of children are bothered with incon
tinence of urine, and Inability to re
tain it is oftime~s catll a habit. It
is not adways the children's fatult-in
miany cases the dlifliculty lies with the
kidneys, and can be readlily righted.
A Manning mother tells how she
went about it.
Mrs. S. B3. Bul lard, says: "'I con
