FROM DEATH'S DOOR.
Hillsdale, 111., April 20 th. Much in
terest has been aroused here over the
case of William Marks, who has been
in a dvinc condition for several
months with an apparently incurable
The leading physicians of this place
had pronounced his case a hopeless
one, and others from Port Byron,
Geneseo, and Davenport, la., had at
tended him, and in a consultation de
cided that he could not live.
In desperation, his nephew inquired
of Mr. L. F. Giles, a local druggist, as
to a last resort. Mr. Giles suggested
Dodd's Kidney Pills, a remedy which
had just been introduced here.
The results were marvelous. Mr.
Marks immediately began to improve,
and within a few weeks was able to
be up and about, completely cured.
His cure is the talk of the neigh
hood, and is considered nothing short
of a miracle.
There appears to be no doubt that
this new remedy, Dodd's Kidney Pills,
will cure any case of Kidney Disease,
for the more malignant forms, such
as Bright's Disease, Diabetes, and
Dropsy, yield readily to its remark

There is more Catarrh in this section of
the country than all other diseases put to
gether, and until the last few years was
supposed to be incurable. For a great many
years doctors pronounced it a local disease,
and prescribed local remedies, and by con
stantly failing to cure with local treatment,
pronounced it incurable. Science has proven
catarrh to be a constitutional disease, and
therefore requires constitutional treatment.
