A CITIZEN" DISCUSSES
A Vital Unestlon Fraught With Interest to
Uock Island People.
When a citizen right here at home
makes a public statement like the
following, all room for doubt disap
pears, and the most skeptical must
be convinced. It's pretty hard for
our readers to prove a statement
made by a stranger living in some
far-away point of the union, but the
endorsement of neighbors, friends
and citizens is the best of proof; no
better evidence can be had.
Mrs. J. Anderson, of 1305 Thirty-
eighth street, says: "I had steady
aching pains through my kidneys
and in my hips, especially after a
hard drfy's work, when my back hurt
me so severely that it made me ner
vous and restless nights. There was
too frequent action of the kidney se
cretions as a rule, very annoying
and distressing. Doan's Kidney rills
were recommended to me, and I ob
tained a box at Marshall fc Fisher's
drug store. In a few days I began
to improve, and I continued the

I lost all strength and run down in
weight. All that money could do was
done, but all hope of recovery van
ished. Hearing of some wonderful
cures effected by the use of Kodol, I
concluded to try it. The first bottle
benefitted me, and after taking Jour
bottles I am fully restored to my us
