THE SECRET OF SUCCESS 6enuine Merit Required to Win People's Confidence, lhe ttave you ever stopped to} reason why it is that so |nan)" products that are exten- sively advertised, all at once drop out of sight and are soon forgottou? The reason is plain--the article did not fulfill the pronlises of the nmnufacturer. This ap- plies more particularly to a medicine. A medicinal preparation that has real cura- tivevalueahnost sells itself, as like an endless chain system the remedy is recoln- mended by those who have been benefited, to those who are in need of it. A prominent druggist says "Take for example 1)r. Kilmer's Swamp-Root, a pre- paration I have sold for ninny years and never hesitate to reconnnend, for in almost every ease it shows excellent results, as many of my customers testify. No other kidney remedy that I know of has so large i a sale." According to sworn statements and verified testimony of thousands who have used the preparation, the success of Dr. Kihner's Swamp-Root is due to the fact that it fulfills almost every wish in over- coming kidney, liver and bladder diseases, eorreets urinary trouble~ andneutralizes ne uric acid which "causes rheumatisnl.
