James Grimes, 1728 Third - avenue,

ney disease and its kindred ailments
for years. The most severe symptons
were pains across my loins and con
tinual backache. I could not stoop or
lift anything without enduring sharp
shooting pains through my back and
shoulders. The secretions of the kid
neys w-ere very Irregular, causing me
much, annoyance, particularly at night
when I would have to get up many
times. I tried many remedies but was
unable to get any relief until I heard
of Doan's Kidney Pills. I immediately
procured a box and after taking them
in accordance with the directions the
pains began to leave me. the secre
tions became regular, and In a very
short time I was completely cured. I
can conscientiously ray that I owe my
present good health to Doan's-Kidney
Pills, and am glad to recommend them
to anyone buffering from any form of
kidney disease." ,
