NEW DISCOVERY QUICKLY
AND BLADDER TROUBLES
Chronic Sufferers Find Relief
After Few Doses Are Taken.
If you are bothered with backache
or rheumatism, have disagreeable,
annoying bladder or urinary disor
ders to contend with or suffer with
any other of the many miseries that
ccme from weak kidneys, here is a
guaranteed remedy you can depend
upon, no matter what else may have
failed to cure you.
It is a positive fact that the new
discovery, Croxone, permanently over
comes such diseases. It is the most
wonderful remedy ever made for rid
ding the system of uric acid. Pills,
tablets and other remedies at the best
merely stimulate the kidneys, giving
temporary relief. Croxone removes
the cause and cures the trouble.
It soaks right in and cleans out the
stepped up kidneys and makes them
filter and sift out all the poisonous
waste matter from the blood. It neu
tralizes and dissolves the uric acid
that lodges, in the joints and muscles,
c&uslng rheumatism; soothes and
heals the delicate kidneys and urinary
organs in a clean, strong, healthy con
dition. More than a few doses of Croxone
are seldom required to relieve even
the obstinate long standing cases,
while it cures the most severe forms
of kidney, bladder trouble, and rheu
matism in a surprisingly short time.
You will find Croxone entirely dif
ferent from all other remedies. There
1 nothing else on earth like it. It is
so prepared that it is practically im
possible to take It into the human
system without results. An original
package costs but a trifle at any firet
class drag store. All druggists are
authorized to personally return t'ao
purchase price if Croxone falls to give
the desired results the very first Ucig
you use it (Advertisement.)
