Life Insurance Companies
They Are Gosely Observing Public
An examining physician for one of
ihe prominent Life Insurance compa
nies, in an interview on the subject,
made the astonishing statement that
the reason wny so many applicants for
rsurance are rejected is because kid
ncv trouble is so common to the Amer
ican people, and the large majority of
applicants do not even suspect that
they have the disease.
He states that judging from his own
experience and reports from druggists
who are constantly in direct touch with
the public, there is one preparation that
has probably been more successful in
relieving and during these diseases
than any remedy known. The mild
and healing influence of Dr. Kilmer's
Swamp-Root is soon realized. It stands
the highest for its remarkable record
We find that Swamp-Boot is strictly
an herbal compound and we would ad
vise our readers who feel in need of
such a remedy to give it a trial. It is
on sale at all drug stores in bottles of
two sizes fifty cents and one dollar.
However, If you wish first to test its
wonderful merits, send to Dr. Kilmer &
Co.. BInghamton, N. Y, for a sample
bottle, absolutely free. When writing
