Main ife There are two ways to tell whether you have weak kidneys. The first is through the pains in the back and other outward signs. The second is by examination of the kid ney secretions. That is why physicians make such a careful examination when you ap ply for Insurance, and if there is any sign of kidney trouble you are surely rejected. Kidney disease is so dangerous that it,is a bad mistake to overlook or neg lect it, and If pain in the back, recur ring headaches, or a fretful, nervous, tired condition makes you suspect some kidney trouble .take the trouble to watch the kidney secretions. Look for any of the following signs: More or less than three and one-half pints passed daily. Too dark or too pale a color. Passages too frequent, profuse, much reduced, or scalding and painful. Sandy, gritty or cloudy settlings. Fat or oily-looking layer which gathers on the surface when allowed to stand, or a jelly-like thickening. Staining of the linen or bad odor. Temporary changes may occur for a time from things eaten, but if the changed appearance continues, your kidneys are out of order and need help. Neglect may prove serious. AGENCY.
