Work Weakens the Kid
Doan's Kidney Pills Have Done
Great Service For People
Who Work in Edgefield.
Most Edgefield people work every
day in some strained, unnatural po
sition-bending constantly over a
desk-riding on jolting* wagons or
cars-doing laborious housework;
lifting, reaching or pulling, or.try
ing the back in a hundred and one
other ways. All these strains tend
to wear, weaken and injure the kid
neys' until they fall behind in their
work of filtering the poisons from
the blood. Doan's kidney pills cure
sick kidneys, put new strength in
bad backs. Edgefield cures prove it.
Walter Dorn, Cedar Row, Edge
field, S. C., says: "I used Doan's
kidney pills and consider them to
be a fine remedy for any trouble
arising from disordered kidneys. I
was a victim of kidney complaint
for a considerable length of time
and my back often pained me so
severely that I could hardly do my
work. The kidney secretions also
passed too frequently and were un
natural. Upon learning of Doan's
kidney pills, I procured a box and
since using them, I have been free
from pain in my back and also
from tho kidney weakness."
