Trembath, 53 Pirle Street, Boulder, says:-" A few years ago, when I was living in Broken Hill I was troubled a lot with a weak and aching back, as the result of a chill which settled on my kidneys.

My husband is also a great believer in this famous remedy." Mrs. Trembath says, three years later--"'I am pleased to bring the above statement up to date by telling you I am still fre...
