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 Kidney Disease. 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 able influence. These forms of Chronic Kidney Disease have hitherto been considered incurable, and have baffled all medical skill, and yet, this new remedy has cured every single case in which it has been used, in this neighborhood. The doctors themselves are amazed at the won derful work Dodd's Kidney Pills are accomplishing in Rock Island County. benefit. Try It! Send for a guarantee, all irregularities of 25c ALL DRUGGISTS.
