Women as Well as Men Are Made
Miserable by Kidney and
Kidney trouble preys upon the mind,
discourages and lessens ambition ; beauty,
vigor ana cheerful
ness soon disappear
when the kidneys are
out of order or dis
eased. Kidney trouble has
become so prevalent
that it is not uncom
mon for a child to le
born afflicted with
weak kidneys. If the
child urinates toooften, if the urine scalds I
the flesh, or if, when the child reaches an
age when it should be able to control the
passage, it is yet amicieu wun oeu-wei-ting,
depend upon it, the cause of the diffi
culty is kidnev trouble, and the first
step should be towards the treatment of
these important organs. This unpleasant
trouble is due to a diseased condition of
the kidneys and bladder and not to a
habit as most people suppose.
Women as well as men are made miser
able with kidney and bladder trouble,
and both need the same great remedy.

An Appeal To Your Reason
If forty or fifty dollars will enable you to pay up all your scattered
accounts, and combine them, so you will only have one small payment
to meet, wouldn't it be worth what interest you would pay on the mon
ey to have your accounts so adjusted that you could meet them all
without a bit of inconvenience?
We would advance you that amount by making you a loan on your
team and wagon, or household goods or piano, or on almost any chat
tel security, without removal. Weekly or monthly payments, as you pre
fer. $1.20 is the weekly payment on a $50 loan for 50 weeks. All com
munications strictly confidential we have three private offices. In
quiry costs nothing. If you cannot call at our office, fill out the blank
and mail it to us, and we will send our agent to tell yon our plans.
