Mrs. Mary J. Chute, across the
river, Princeton, Minn., says:
"About three years ago I used Doan's
Kidney Pills for a long standing case
of kidney trouble, they cured me and
the cure remained permanent until
about a year ago. At that time I met
with an accident and my kidneys
became disordered. My back ached
severely and the least sudden move
ment would cause sharp pains to dart
through my loins. I often suffered
from dizzy spells and headaches. My
eyes became very weak and the
kidney secretions were irregular. In
spite of the use of many remedies, I
failed to get any better and at last
when Doan's Kidney Pills were
brought to my attention I procured
a box at the Home Drug Store. They
gave me prompt and permanent relief
and I am very grateful."
