G B Burhans testifies after four years.
G. B. Burhans, Carlisle Center, N.
Y., writes: 'About four years ago I
wrote you stating that I had been en'
tirely cured of a severe kidney
trouble by taking less than two bot-
tles of Foley's Kidney Cure. It en
tirely stopped the brick dust sedi-
ent, and pain and symptoms of kid-
ney disease disappeared. 1 am glad
to say that I have never had a return
of any of those symptoms during the
four years that have elapsed and I am
evidently cured to stay cured, and
heartily recommend Foley's Kidney
Cure to any one suffering from kid-
ney or bladder trouble." For sale

End of Bitter Fight.
"Two physicians had a long stub-

lung" writes J. F. Hughes of DuPont
Ga. "and gave me up. Everybody
thought my time had come. As a
last resort I tried Dr. King's New
Discovery for Consumption. The
benefit I received was striking and I
was on my feet in a few days. Now
I've entirely regained my health."
