SCIENTIFJC TRUTH Reganling the Functions of an Important Orgao. Of Which the Public Knows Bnt Little Worthy Carefnl Consideration. To the Editor ot the Scientiflc American: WiU you permtt us ' mak knonn. to the public theacts we have, learned during tie past 8 yenrx, eoncerning cli,rlcrs of the human Kidneys and tfutorgans ahioh diseased Kidneys so eatiW break doumt You are mnducüng a Scientijlc paner. and are nnpr.djudieed txcept in fmor of TbüTH. Il Is nadien to say, no medical Journal of uCod ' standing would admit ttunc fuctx, t'ur imi obvUwt rtason. ÍI. II. Il ARNEH& CO., Projtrietors of " Warner's üafe Cure." That we may emphasize and clearly explain the relation the kidneys sustain to the general health. and how much is depeiident npon thora, we propose, motaphorically speaking, to take one from the liuman body, place in the wash-bowl before us, and exumine it for the public benefit. Yon will imagine that we hare before us (i body shaped lika a bean, smooth and glistening, about four inches in length, two in width, and one in thiokness. It ordinarily weighs in tlio adult male, about five ounces, hut is somewhat lighter in tho femóle. A smull organ? you say. But im derstand, the body of the average size man contains about ten quartt of b'ood, of which every drop paste through (hese filter or kewerx, as they may be called. many timts a day as often as through the heart, niakiug a complete rovolution in thrce minutes. From the blood they separate the waste matorfal, workin; 'away steadily night and day, gleeping or waking, tireloss as the heart itself, and fully of as mnch vital importance; removing impurities from sixty-fl ve gallon of blood each hour, or about forty-nine barrels each day, or 9,128 hogshead n year! What a wonder that the kidneys can last any length of time under this prodigious strain, treated and neglected as they are? We slice this delicate organ open lengthwise with our kuife, and wiU roughly describe its interior. W flnd it to be of a reddish-brown color, ïoft and easily torn; filled with hundreds of little tubes, short and thrcadlike, starting from. the arteries onding in a little tuft bout inidway from the outside opening into a envity of considerable size, wuieh is oilled the pelvis or, roughly speaking, a sac, wkich is for tlie purpose of holding the water to further undergo purification before i_t passes down from lipre into the ureters. and so on to the outside of the body These littlo tubes are filters which do their work automatically, and righl hert' is where tfu düease of tfu kidneg lirxt b'fjins. Doing the vast amount of work which they are obliged to. from the slightest irregularity in our hahitx, from cold, from high living, from stimulants or a thousand and one other causes which occur every day, they become somewhat weakened in their nerre force. "What is the result! Congestión or stopEage of the current of blood in the small lood vessels surrounding them. which become blocked; these delicate membranes are irritatcd; inflnininution is set up, then pus is formed, which collects in the pelvis or sac; the tubes aro at first partially, and soon are totally unal]e to do their work. The pelvic s"ac goes on distending with this corruption. pressing npon the blood vessels. All this time, remenibor, the blood. which is entering the kidneys to be filtered, is passing fhrwtgh tli terrible diaffu&ting pu, tor itcannot take any other route ! Stop and think of it for a moment. Do you realize the importance, nay the vital necessity, of having the kidneys in order? Can you expect whon they are diseased or obstructed, no matter how little, that you can have jmre blond awl tscavt atMtuet It would be just as reasonable to expect, if a pest-house were set across Broadway and countless thousands were compellod to gohrough its pestilential doors, and escape from contagión and disease. as for one to expect the blood to escape pollution when constantly running through a diseased kidney. Now, what is tho result? Why, that the blood takes up and deposits this poison as it Bweeps along into every organ, into every inch of musele, tissue, flesh and bone, from your head to your feet. And whenever,fronihere(iitary influence orotherwise, some part of the body is weaker than another. a countless train of diseases is established, such as consumption in weak lungs, dyspepsia where tnere is a delicate stomach; norvousnes-s. insanity, paralysis or heart disease in those who have weak norves. The heart mi oh fécltht ejl'ects of the poison, ai il rtquiret purt Ñoód to leep U In right action. It increases its stroke in number and force to compénsate for the natural stimulus wantihe, In its ondéavorto crowd the impuro blood through this obstruction, causing pnin, palpitation, or an out-ofbreath feeling. Unnatural as this forced labor is. the heart must soon falter, becoming weaker and woaker until one day it suddetUy stops, and dcath from aiiarent "heart disease'' is the verdict. But the medical profession, learned and dignified, cali these diseases by high sounding names, treat them alone, and patients die, for Vf nrtrt-'.r: ir rarnihuj )' ilriith to the affrrttil part. constantly adding fuel brought from these suppurating. pus-Iaden kidneys which here in our wash-bowl are very putrefnetion itself. and which should have been cured first. But this is not all the kidneys have to do: for you mnst remember that each adult lakes about sevi'ii pon mis of nonrihment evory twentv-four hours to supply the waste óf the body which is constantly going on. a waste eóual to the quantity taken. This. too, the kidneys nave to separate from the blood with all other deeomposing matter. But you say, ';My kidneys are all right. I have no pain in the back." Mistaken man! People die of kidney disease of so bad a charaeter that the organs are rotten, and yet they have never there had a pain nor an fiche.' Why? Because the disease begins, as we have shown. in the interior of the kidney, whore thcre üta few nervtA f feéling to convey the sensation of pain. Wliy this is so we may never know. When you consider their great work, the delieacy of their structure, the ease with which they are deranged, can yon wonder at the ill hoalth of our men and women? Health and long üfe cannot be expected when so vital an organ is impaired. No wonder som1 wrltera say we are degenerating. T)on't you sop the great, the extreme importn nee of kee)iinK this machinery in working order? Could the flnest engine do even a frnctional part of this work, without Bttention from the eniti eer? Don't yoii sce how dangerous this hidden disease is? It is ltuking about us constantly, without giving any indication of its presence. The most skiüed physicians cannot detect It at times, for thekidney tlumttfoe cannot be. examined by any means which we have at our comtnand. Even an analysis of the water, chemically and microscopically, reveáis nntliing: definite in mahy cases, even when th9 kidneys are fairly broken down. Then look out for them, as disease, no matter where situated, to 93 per cent., as j shoyn by after death examination, has its i origin in the breaking down of these secreting tubes in the interior of the kidney. As you valué health, M vou desire long life free from sieknes ftiuj suffering, give these organs some attention. Keep them in good condition and thns prevent (as is easily done) all disoase. Warner's Safe Cure, as it beeomes year after year better known for its woix't 'ful cures nnd its power over the kidneyg, has done and is doing more to increase the average duration of life tlian ill Ihe phvsiciansand medicines known.

C0N0-VEB Eejoicing Over His Late Great Sucoeis. I hav been afflicted with rhcuiuatism twenty years. For the last ten years have been obliged to use crutches. Often my left hip and knee would ontirely give out. Have expended a large amount of money j for remedies recommended us a cure for that terrible disease, have used the most powerfnl liniments on my hip and knee to sooth the pain, that I might get a little J sleep. My hip and knee had lost nearly I all streugth by the use of the liniments, and I could get uo help. I saw an advertisemeut of your remedy in a paper and ordered half a dozen bottles of Hibbard's Rheumatic Syrup, took them and received someroüef, ordered another dozen. Have I taken seven of the last dozen, and I am i happy in saying tiiat I know I am being I curea. Have not used any liniments since I coinmenced taking your syrup. When I ' began taking your syrup I could not tak a step without the use of a cañe; neither could I turn myself in bed without aid;can now turn in bed without any trouble : can walk about my house and office without the use of my cane. After looping track of it, for the reason when I take a long walk I take italong. My office i is four block f rom my house; I have not j walkod to or f rom it In over a year until ; last Thursday a week. Since that time I j have walked to nnd from it every day, j cept Sunday. I am truly rejoicing that 1 1 : am fast being relieved from such a terrible ! aflliction. Wishing that 1 might herald to all who are afflicted with disease the merits of your wonderful medicine, I write you of the benefits which 1 have derived from its us. Send me one half dozen bottles syrup and one-third dozen piasters by express C. O. D. This I want for a fneud in the northern part of this county. Ha ig a great suffrer with rheumatism. ery truly, S.
