PROF. ROBERT DICK WILSON.
Dr. "Wllson, ln the statement that the
Hebrews got thelr religlon from the
Babylonians, and not ivlce. versa.
as the Chrlstlan world. hn* always held.
Moses was wrong ,lp 'copf/rtliig that he
first got the name' of Jelijovah for Gort

appear to havo had It long beforo, _nc;
the professor ..V. Imated that tho "whoie

long held,,would go to smasn.
Professor Wllson presented the tabu

of the Babylonlon, Hebrow Aramaic,
and Arablc languages to tost Pro?
fessor Delltzch's theory that tho He?
brews got thelr religlon from the Baby?

and found that tho rcsemblance of He?
brow to Arablc was fifty-slx iper cent,.
us agalnst a twenty-nlno per cent- rc?

Taklng tho words of tho CommanO

BM AN. _j'^J
Gentlemen: Some two years ago I was so run down that I lacked strength, had no appetite and
could ,not sleep nights. Sometimes it seemcd as though my back would break in two after stooping.
I had to get up many times during the night to ttrinate and go often through the day. After having the
best physicians prescribe for me without relief, I decided from my symptoms that the medicine I
needed was Dr. Kilmer's Swamp-Root, the great kidney, liver and bladder remedy. After trying a
sample bottle with good results, I purchased slx bottles of the regular size, and after taking them was
entirely cured. Swamp-Root is a wonderful remedy when a man is not feeling well, after expostire or.
loss of sleep and irregular mcals. It is also a great medicine to tone up a man's system. Other mem?
bers of the police force are using and recommending Swamp-Root. They, like myself, cannot say, too
much in praise of this great remdy. \ . _
