Sudden Death Caused by Disease of the Kidneys The close connection between the heart and the kidneys is well known nowadays. When kidneys are diseased, arterial tension is increased and the heart functions are attacked. When the kidneys no longer pour forth waste, uremic poisoning occurs and the per son dies, and the cause is often given as heart disease, or disease of brain or lungs. It is a good insurance against such a risk to send 10 cents for a large trial package of "Anuric"-the latest discovery of Dr. Pierce. When you suffer from backache, frequent or scanty urine, rheumatic pains here or i there, or that constant tired, worn-out i feeling, get "Anuric" at the druggist.
