They Are Xot to Blame Read Thin State
ment From a Rock Island Lady.
Every mother in Rock Island should
read this statement. Many mothers
blame their children for what they
are not always able to prevent. The
poor little ones suffer for their inabil
ity to do differently. Many children
are born with weak kidneys. They
wet the bed night after night, because
they really can't help it. Mothers
scold, then whip and often shame the
child, but tbe accidents go on nightly.
If 2 cents' worth of forethought were
used, it would be seen that after whip
ping, scolding and shaming the child
if it still continued this habit, that
the child must certainly have weak
kidneys or an inflammation in its
bladder. Morrow's Kid-ne-oids cure
this trouble perfectly. They are easy
to take, as they are" tablets (yellow)
and not a nasty, nauseous pill."
We want to give you the experience
of Mrs. Harriet Atkinson, residing at
41 Ninth street, this city, who says:
"My husband died a few years ago of
Bright's disease. I have four chil
dren, three of them with weakness of
the kidneys, which of course they in
herited. "They did wet the bed at
night and their clothes in daytime;
the ages of the three affected are the
eldest ones, aged respectively 11, y
and 7 vears.
I have given Morrow's Kid-ne-oids
to all three of them, and they are en
tirely cured of this weakness in the
daytime, and it is seldom that any of
them wet the lied at night now. 1
am still giving them Kid-ne-oids. and
know from what Morrow's Kid-ne-
oids have already done that they will
cure them entirely. I procured the
Kid-ne-oids at Bahusen's drug store."
To confirm the statement of Mrs.
Atkinson, we want you to ask her
about Morrow s Kid-ne-oids; she is a
grateful mother anil will be very glad
to tell you personally how much her
children were benelited by their use.
Do not confound Morrow's Kid-ne-
oius wuu any kinu ot kuiuev puis;
they are not pills at all, but yellow
tablets, and are put up in wooden
boxes whic h sell at 50 cent?, ami con
tain enough for about two weeks'
treatment, and are never sold in bulk.
