There is a disease prevailing in this
country most dangerous because so decep?
tive. Many sudden deaths are caused by
lt?heart disease, pneumonia, heart failure
or apoplexy are often the result of kidney
disease. If kidney trouble is allowed to ad?
vance the kidney-poisoned blood will attack
the vital organs, or the kidneys themselves
break down and v/aste away cell by cell.
Then the richness of the blood?the albumen
?leaks out and the sufferer has Bright's
Disease, the worst form of kidney trouble.
Dr. Kilmer's Swamp-Root the new dis?
covery is the true specific for kidney, bladder
and urinary troubles. It has cured thousands
of apparently hopeless cases, after all other
efforts have failed. At druggists in fifty-cenl
