WEEDS
Consumption is a human
weed flourishing best in weak
3 lungs. Like other weeds it's
easily destroyed while young;
when old, sometimes im
possible.
Strengthen the lungs as you
would weak land and the
weeds will disappear.
3 The best lung fertilizer is
Scott's Emulsion. Salt pork
is good too, but it is very hard
to digest.
Tle time to treat consump
tion is when you begin trying
to hide it from yourself.
Others see it, you won't.
Don't wait until you can't
deceive yourself any longer.
Begin with the first thought
to take Scott's Emulsion. If
it isn't really consumption so
much the better; you will soon
forget it and be better for the
treatment. If it is consumip
tion you can't expect to be
cured at once, but if you will
begin in time and will be
rigidly regular in your treat
I mea't you vill win.
Scott's E mulsion, fresh air,
re.,': all you c,.n, eat all you
cam, that's the treatment and
th:L's the0 best treat meit.

The Cause of Many
Sudden Deaths.
Phere Is a disease prevalling in this
couistry most dangerous because so decep
tive. Many sudden
de,~ (aths are caused by
--jit - heart dlIseasie,
~i~pneumonia, hearn
1l ffailure or apoplexy
* rarc oflen the resuill
of kidney disease. If
-lowed to advance the
~.kidney-p oioe
be vital organs or the
idney themselves break down and waste
away cell by coil.
B3 11cr troubles most always result from
a der..ngement of the kidneys and a cure is
obt:.ii od quickest by a proper treatment of
the k :lneys. If you are feeling badly you
can make no mistake by taking Dr. Kilmor's
Swamnp-Root, the great kIdney, liver and
bladder remedy.
It corrects InabIlity to hold urIne and scald
ing rain In passing It, and overcomes that
unplc tsanit necessity of being compelled to
go cf an during the day, and to get up many
timca (luring the night. The mild and the
e::traordinary effect of Swamp-Root is soon
realized, it stands tlie highest for its won-.
derful cures of the most distres~sing cases.
Swamp-Root is pleasant to take and sold
by all druggists in fifty-cent and one-dollar
sized bottles. You ma 'v 'w
have a sample bottle ofon
this wonderful new dis- . iii
covery and a book that "' "
tells all about it, both itomoorswampdnoot,
sent free by mail. Address Dr. Kilmer & Co.
Binghamton, N. Y. When writing mention
reading this generous. offer in this paper.
Don't make any mistake, but remember
the name, Swamp-Root, Dr. Kilmer's
Swamp-Root, and the address, Bingha~mton,
