Alcohol Secretly
Added to Liquid Kidney
Remedies.
KIDNEY-WORT TABLETS
Tacob Alfonce Passed Kidney Stones for Three
Years The Tablets Cured Him.
WHITE MAN
LYNCHED.
3b In Marsvi!it Ky., Summarilj
Strings I'p a Mnr-.lcrer.
The most wicked use alcohol was ever'
put to is when secretly added to Ihmld
kidney remedies. It creates kidney di
seases and prevents recovery.
A general awakening to this harmful
eiteet of alcohol in liquid kidney remedies
resulted in Dr. Pettingill's Kidney-Wort
Tablets (without the drawback of alcohol),
an acknowledged njn-cllic for all kidney
diseases, that is today curing kidney, liver,
bladder and urinary troubles in a way no
liijuid alcoholic remedy ever succeeded in
doing.
Why rim the risk of chronic kidney
trouble and death by taking a kidney rem
edy known to contain a virulent poison
when Kidney-Wort Tablets are obtainable
at every drug store and contain nothing
that can interfere with a steady Improve
ment ? The Tablets have never failed to
check kidney diseases in the young and
the old. " " .
Jacob Alfonce, 5? Fcarl street, Lynn, Mass.
wriiin? Feb. 22, 1 903, says: "Kidney-Wort Tab
lets have triven me rreat relief and in a wonder
fully short time. I have passed kidney stones
for three years, but since using Kidney-Wort Tab
lets the pain in back arid sides has left me, and I
feel a hundred per cent better.
At the Erst suspicion of backache, loss
of appetite, cloudy, milky colored or f ra
grant urine, swelling of hand or feet,
bloating, rheumatism, constipation, head
aches, shortness of breath or dizzy feelings
or it compelled to net up in the night to
make water, make this test: Let your
morning water stand in a class. If it is
milky, cloudy, high colored or contains a
reddish sediment, your kidneys are dis
ordered or diseased. Kidney-Wort Tab
lets exactly suits such symptoms. You
may be sure of getting well if you take
the Tablets regularly.
