launched the republic on a career of

any other government of the people

one prescribes for the control by the

force. One encourages the amalga

the placing of the control of the com

Yes, August Flower still has the

anything else for .indigestion or bil

they seldom heard of appendicitis,
nervous prostration or heart failure,
etc. They used August Flow

fermentation of undigested food, reg
ulate the action of the liver, stimulate
the nervous and organic action of the
system, and that is all they took when
feeling dull and bad with headaches

The Experience of Well Known Persons
O light Sorely to Be Convincing;.
We ask you to read the following
statement from a well-known citizen
because he suffered from one of the
worst kind of cases of backache and
kidney disorder and was cured by the
use of Morrow's Kid-ne-oids. If you
are in the least way troubled with a
weak back or disordered kidneys, use
Morrow's Kid-ne-oids; they cure every
time. Here is what Fred Boetje, 921
Fifth avenue, a manufacturer of
srround mustard, says:
"I was snfferinsr severely with
rheumatism caused bv mv kidneys
being out of order. I had a sharp
pain across my back and in my left
side, which extended all the way down
mv left ley to my foot, at times
I would leel the pains in oth
er parts of mv body and limbs
tried several kinds of medicine, but
cot no relief until I got some of Mor-
row s Kid-ne-oids at 31. . isannsen
druc store. Thev yave me relief in
day or so, but I continued to take
them and now the pain is all gone and
I feel better in every way. Before
taking Kid-ne-oids I could not sleep
for the pain, it was so severe at times
I was troubled with urinary disorder
which showed itself in frequent and
excessive discharges. All my tron
ble is now erone; Morrow's Kid-ne
oids have cured me."
Morrow's Kid-ne-oids are not pill
but yellow tablets, which is a scien
tilic form of preparing medicine
Thev are put up in wooden boxes
which contain enough for about tw
weeks' treatment and sell at 50 cents
