There is a disease prevailing In thla
country most dangerous because so decep
tive. Many sudden deaths are caused by
ti heart disease, pneumonia, heart (allure
or apoplexy are often the result of kidney
disease. If kidney trouble is allowed to ad
vance the kidney-poisoned blood will attack
the vital organs, or the kidneys themselves
break down and waste away cell by cell.
Then the richness of the blood the albumen
leaks out and the sufferer has Bright'
Disease, the worst form of kidney trouble.
Dr. Kilmer's Swamp-Root the new dis
covery is the true specific for kidney, bladder
and urinary troubles. It has cured thousands
of apparently hopeless cases, after all other
efforts have failed. At druggists In fifty-cent
and dollar sizes. A sample bottle sent fret
by mall, also a book telling about Swamp
Root and Hs wonderful cures. Address
