AUSTIN WEEKLY STATESMAN. THURSDAY. AUGUST 11 1887. A Perilous Postponement. To postpone when the duty for Immediate action is clear is always unwise. Especially is it so when increasing ill health calls for a resort to medication. Diseases of the kid- neys and bladder are often of swift growth always of fatal tendency if not comuatted at the outset. We have all even thoteofus who are not remarkably well instructed heard something of the danger attending Bright 's disease diabetes and other diseases of the kidneys or bladder. Let no one be foolhardy enough to procrastinate if he per- ceives the renal organs to be inactive. HOi- tetter's Stomach Bitters are peculiarly adapt- ed to overcome this inaction to sutiiciently stimulate without exciting the kidneys and bladder. InQnitely is this diuretic to be pre- ferred to the impure and flery stimulants of commerce which prove the bane of unwary persons with a tendency to renal troubles. They are likewise incomparable for dys- pepsia debil...
