Not an Isolated Case.
Many Similar Cases in Edgefield
This Edgefield woman's story
given here is not an isolated case by
any means; week after week, year
after year, our neighbors are telling
similar good news.
Mrn. L. K. Dunn, Edgefield, say?:
'Kidney complaint fastened itself
upon me and soon undermined my
health. My kidneys and bladder
both caused me much suffering and
finally I became atti ic ted with dizzy
spells, which grew constant. Doan's
kidney pills having done a world of
good in our family, I decided to try
them. I was not disappointed with
the results, for they helped mein
everyway, removing the kidney and
bladder weakness and restoring me
to good health. I have had no troub
le whatever with my kidneys for
two aears and give all the credit of
this cure to Doan's kidney pills.
You may continue to use my for
mer endorsement of them."
Price 80c at all dealers. Don't
simply ask for a kidney remedy
get Doan's kidney pills-the same
that Mrs. Dunn had. Foster-Milburn

The poster parade which was
planned for last Monday by the W.
CT. V. was well carried out and
no doubt more interest was created
in the cause of temperance, for this
was really impressive. The children
of the town formed in line on the
school campus with some of the un*
ion members, and the procession
made a tour of the town. Each one
carried a banner and the statements
upon each were calculated to arouse
interest and no one who saw this
band as it passed along, waving
each his banner, could help be
aroused to enthusiasm in the cause
of temp?rance. That evening in the
school auditorium Mr. J. K. Bree
din lectured in the cause of temper
ance, and all who heard him were
impressed by the facts that he pre
sented. He is an interesting speaker
and the cause was well presented.
