not always understood.
A fact often overlooked, or not
al ways understood is that women
suffor as much from distressing
kidneys and bladder troubles as
tho men. Tho womb is situated
back of and very close to the
bladder, and for that reason any
distress, disease or inconvenience
manifested in the kidneys, baek,
bladder or uninary passago is of
ten, by mistake, attributed to fe
male weakness or womb trouble
of .some sort.
Tho error is easily made and
may be as easily avoided by sot
ting urine aside for twenty-four
hours; n 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 bone
fit, try Dr. Kilmer's Swamp-Root,
the great kidney remedy. The
mild and the extraordinary effoot
will surprise you. It stands the
highest for its wonderful eures.?
If you take n medicine you should
lake the best. At druggists fifty
rents and one dollar. You may
have n sample bottle aud pam
