of this city whoso opinion on legal
matters Is unquestioned, has recently
made public his unqualified opinion on
a matter of medicine. Mr. Wade says
that Rheumatism and Kidney Trouble
affect the eyesight, and further that
there Is no case of the kind that can
not be cured by Dodd's Kidney Pills.
He has no fear of being set right by
any of his medical friends, for both
statements have a living and indis
putable proof in the person of the
great lawyer himself, who as a result
of Rheumatism and Kidney Trouble
from which he suffered for years, be
came totally blind.
Physicians, the best In tho country,
pronounced his case incurable and
hopeless, but Dodd's Kidney Pills
cured him, restored his sight, drove
away the Kidney Trouble and with it
the Rheumatism and made an all
around well man of him.
