it does look reasonable that a man

I heard about Morrow's Kid-ne-oids
and thought I would give them a trial
although I had little faith in patent
medicines. I got a box at Bahnsen's
drug store and began to use them as
directed. I began to get better in
day or so after taking them, and can
say thev are the only things I have
tried that have given me any relief.
