Jeter Street Man Tells of Hia
Mr. Paul's work brought a strain
on Bis kidneys, which resulted in a
bad attack of various aches and
pains. This (rouble might have be
come more serious had not Doan's
kidney pills been used. Three boxes
made a cure, read about it.
T J Paul, Jeter street, Edgefield,
savs: "My trouble was brought on
by being on my feet continually. I
had a dull pain in my back and I
tired easil\. When I was tn my feet
for any length of time, my back got
sore and stiff. My rest was broken
at night, as the kidney recretions
were too frequent in passage, caus
ing me to get up a number of times.
After using three boxes of Doan's
kidney pills procured at Penn &
Holstein's drug store, I was cured
of my backache and other symptoms
of kidney trouble."
