Sioux Rapids Press - Thursday , April 25th, 1889 - More adults are carried off in this country by chronic kidney disease than by any other one malady except consumption. Deaths from such diseases are increasing at the rate of 250 per cent a decade. Consumption is always due to deficient nutrition of the lungs, because of bad blood. Medical science can no longer dispute the fact that the kidneys are the principal blood purifying organs of the human system, and if they are diseased, and thus fail to expel the uric acid, poison or the waste matter of the blood, many patients die.

An explanation for some of the causes of death:

Bright's Disease - Any of several forms of disease of the kidney attended with albumin in the urine, including especially acute and chronic nonsuppurative nephritis. Nephritis - infection of the kidneys

Catarrh of Brain/ Catarrh of Head/ Catarrh of Stomach/ Catarrh on the Breast/ Catarrk Pneumonia) - An inflammatory affection of any mucous membrane, in which there are congestion, swelling, and an alteration in the quantity and quality of mucous secreted. In America, especially, a chronic inflammation of, and hypersecretion from the membranes of nose or air passages. Also an acute influenza, resulting from a cold and attended with cough, thirst, lassitude and watery eyes; also, the cold itself. Catarrh Pneumonia is an inflammation of the lung tissue associated with catarrh and with marked evidences of inflammation of the bronchial membranes - often chronic.

Consumption - A progressive wasting away of the body, especially that attended upon pulmonary phthisis, called pulmonary consumption; hence pulmonary phthisis or tuberculosis

Diphtheria is a deadly disease prevalent in the 1920's and earlier. It is a serious bacterial infection. The toxin accumulates in the nasal passages and is spread by coughing and sneezing.

Grippe - The influenza or epidemic catarrh

Scarlet fever is a childhood disease. It is a bacterial infection caused by specific bacteria and found in about 10 percent of persons with strep throat. Symptoms include high fever, a strawberry like tongue, and body rash. It can be prevented by habits of cleanliness - like hand washing.
