Thorough Work
How Colfax Citizens Can Find Freldom
From Kidney Troubles.
If you suffer from backache
From urinary disorders
Any curable disease of the kidneys,
Use a tested kidney remedy.
Doan's Kidney Pills have been tested
by thousands.
Grateful people testify.
Can you ask more convincing proof
of merit?
J. B. Clements, Opelousas, La., says:
"I was greatly annoyed by dull, heavy
pains in the small of my back and of
ten my back became so lame that I
could hardly get about. Reading of
Doan's Kidney Pills, I procured a sup
ply. They gave me prompt relief and
after I had taken the contents of two
boxes, I obtained a permanent cure. I
take pleasure in recommending this
remedy."

the name." Don't simply ask for a

Porto Rico's New Wonder.
From far away Porto Rico come re
ports of a wonderful new discovery
that is believed will vastly benefit the
people. Ramon T. Marchan, of Barce
loneta, writes "Dr. King's New Dis
covery is doing splendid work here. It
cured me about five times of terrible
roughs and colds, also my brother of a
severe cold in his chest and more than
20 others, who used it on my advice.
We hope this great medicine will yet
be sold in every drug store in Port(e
Rico." For throat and lung troubles it
has no equal. A trial will convince
you of its merit. 50c and $1.00. Trial
