Batchers Union of Chicago. It has
the- president's signature, which he
pronounces [& forgery. Several Wes?

ductory paragraph which* explains and

Better Than Pills.
The question has been asked-lu what
way are Chamberlain's Stomach and Liver
Tablets superior to the ordinary cathartic
and liver pills. Our answer is-They are
easier and more pleasant to take and their
effect is so gentle and so agreeable that
one hardly realizes that it is produced by a
medicine.. Then they not only move the
bowels but improve the appetite and aid
j the digestion. For sale at 25 cents per

CAUSE ONE-THIRD OF
THE TOTAL DEATHS.
When the Kidneys fail to perform their functions properly by not straining out the poison?
ous waste matter from the blood as it passes through them, the poisons are carried by the
circul?tion to every part of the body, deranging the different organs. This causes heart
trouble, stomach trouble, sluggish liver and a host of other ills, all due to deranged Kidneys.
corrects irregularities and cures Kidney and Bladder diseases in every form, tones up the
whole system, and the diseases that have
resulted from disordered Kidneys disappear,
because the cause has been removed. Com?
mence taking FOLEY'S/KIDNEY CURE
at the first sign of danger. Do not risk
having Bright's Disease or Diabetes.
CURED OF BRIGHT'S DISEASE.
Mr. Robert G. Burke, Elnora, Saratoga Co., N. Y.. writes:-I aro glad to have an oppor?
tunity of telling 'what magnificent results I have had from using FOLEY'S KIDNEY
CURE after having tried other advertised medicines and several physicians. Before I began
it I had to get up from xs to 20 times each night to relieve my bladder. I was all bloated up
with dropsy and my eyesight was so impaired that I could scarcely see one of my family
across the room. In fact, I was so badly used up that I had given up hope of living when I
was urged by a friend to try FOLEY'S KIDNEY CURE. One 50-cent bottle worked won?
ders, and before I had taken the third bottle the superfluous flesh had gone, as well as all
other symptoms of Kidney trouble. My friends were surprised that I was cured, as they
all thought I was going to die. Every few days some one comes from mile's away to learn
the name of the wonderful medicine that cured me of Bright's Disease, and not one that
has tried it has failed to be benefitted.
