It was a huge task to undertake the
cure of such a bad case of kidney dis
ease as that of C. F. Collier, of Chero
kee. Ioka, but Electric Bitters did it.
He writes: 'My kidneys were so far
gone, I could not sit on a chair without
a cushion; and suffered from dreadful
backache, headache, and depression.
In Electric Bitters, however, I found a
cure, and by them was restored to per

tonic medicine to all with weak kid
