ONE OF TWO WATS.
The bladder was created for one
purpose, namely, a it receptacle is liable for the
urine, and as such not to
any form of disease except bv one
two ways. The first way is from
tmperfeot action of the kidneys. The
second way is from careless local
ireatment of other diseases.
Unhealthy urine from unhealthy
kidneys is the chief cause of hladdei
troubles. So the womb, like the
b adder, was created for one purpose
and if not doctored too much is not
liable to weakness or disease, except
in rare cases. It is situated back
and very close to the bladder, there¬
fore any pain, disease or inconven¬
ience manifested in the kidneys, back
bladder or urinary passage is often,
by mistake, attributed to female
weakness or womb trouble of some
sort. The error is easily made and
may be as easily avoided. To find
out correctly, set your urine aside for
twenty-four hours, a sediment or set¬
tling indicates mild kidney and or the bladder
trouble. The extra¬
ordinary effect of Dr. Kilmer’s Swamp
Root, the great kidney, and bladder
remedy is soon realized. If you need
a medicine you should have the best.
