with simple indigestion. Tho rea

A fact of ton overlooked, or not
always understood is that women
suffer as much from distressing
kidneys and bladder troubles as
tho mou. The womb is situated
back of and very close to the
bladder, and for that reason any
distress, diseaso or ineonvonienco
manifested in the kidneys, back,
bladder or uninary possogo is of
ten, by mistake, attributed to fe
male weakness or womb trouble
of some sort.
Tho error is easily made and
may bo as easily avoided by sot
tine; urine aside for twenty-four
hours; a sediment or settling is
evidence that your kidneys and
bladder need doctoring, if you
have pain or dull aching in the
back, pass water too frequently, or
scanty supply with smarting or
burning,?these are also convinc
ing proofs of kidney troubles, if
you have doctored without bene
fit, try Dr. Kilmer's Swamp-Root,

mild and the extraordinary effect
will surprise yon. It stands the
