holds good. I had been troubled by
kidney disorders for some time.
There was an acute pain, across the
small of my back which made it hard
1 for me to bend cr do any lifting. I
j had headaches and dizzy spells. A

ed of an attack of kidney complaint
by Doan's Kidney Pills so I decided
to try them. After the first few
doses I got relief and soon I was free
from the trouble."
