Miserable by Kidney and
Kidney trouble preys upon the mind,
discourages and lessen sambition; beaut v.
vigor and cheerful
ness soon disappear
w hen 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 be
born afflicted with
weak kidnevs. If the
child urinates toooften, if the urine scalds
the flesh, or if, w hen the child reaches an
age when it shoutd he able to control the
passage, it is yet afflicted with bed-wetting,
depend upon it, the cause of the diffi
culty is kidney 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 anil 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.
