At times I thought I could not endure 'he suffering much longer, so natur ally consu.ted our family physician who told me at once that I had a se vere case of kidney trouble. I con sulted another physician at Denver." Col., who told me that I had kidney trouble and needed careful treatment and a long rest. After dorctoring with the physician for several months and receiving no benefit, I decided to try Dr. Kilmer's Swamp-Root, which bad been recommended by my hus band's partner. To be honest. I really did not have any faith in Swamp-Root but thought I would experiment on at least one bottle. After taking one fifty-cent bottle I felt so much better that I bought a dollar bottle and continued its use for a few months, after which 1 felt so well and free from my former suffer ing that I pronounced myself cured. I feel safe in saying that your Swamp-Root prevented my having Bright's Disease and therefore, saved my life. To prove my gratitude I will allow you to pub'ish this testimonial any time you wish. I also tell my friends what Swamp-Root done for me and know of several cases where cures bate been accomplished.
