John Mager. of 223 Eighteenth

were such terrible pains through my
kidneys that I could hardly eit down
or get up without suffering from sharp,
shooting pains through by back. In
the morning I often felt so lame and
sore that I could not get up and I was
practically rolled out of bed. and more '
than once my wife has assisted me to
et up. I had my attention called to
Doan's Kidney Pills and got a box at
the Harper House drug store. A few
3eemed to relieve me, and pains grew
less, and after using one box I was
nearly free from them. I got a second
box, and before I had finished it the ;
trouble left me."
