It^^^^^^^r^ BACKACHE IS ' A DANGER SIGNAL Kidney Troubles, Bladder Dis orders, Rheumatism, and Serious Diseases Follow The kidneys get clogged up, the same as- the bowels do. Then they be come sluggish, and only filter or strain out a part of the waste or poisonous matter, all the rest remaining In th« blood and poisoning the system. As soon as you notice the flrst in dications of backache, pains in the sides, or aches around the kidneys, or if the urine is light and pale, dark colored, cloudy, thick, or has an offen sive odor, burns, Is scalding or irreg ular in passage, take a little Croxone three times a day and end these trou bles before they become more serious. There is no more effective remedy known for the prompt relief and cure of kidney, bladder troubles and rheu matism than Croxone. It soaks right into the kidneys through the walls and lining; cleans out the clogged up pores; neutralizes and dissolves the poisonous uric acid and waste matter that lodge In the joints and muscles and cause those terrible rheumatic pains, and makes the kidneys filter the poison from the blood and drlva it-m out of the system. A few days' use of this new scien tific preparation is often all that ia ever needed to end the worst back ache or overcome the most annoying urinary disorders. You will find Croxone entirely dif ferent from other remedies. It is so prepared that lt is practically impos sible to take it without results. An original package costs but a trifle and all druggists are authorized to return the purchase price if it should fail In j a single case.—Advertisement.
