You cant separate them.
And you cant get rid of the

If the kidneys are well and
strong, tho rest of the system is
pretty sure to be in vigorous
Doan's Kidney Pills make

A. M. Pilgrim, living one mile
west of Darlington, S. C-, says:
"Mv kidneys were badly disor
di'red and caused a burning sen
sat ion during the passage of flu;
secretions. My back pained me
and would often be so lanie that
I could not rest at night. I
heard about Doan's Kidney Pills
and thoy were so highly, recom

1 got a box. Tho acted like
magic, proving to be just the
remedy needed for my back and
kidneys. Altera short uso, 1 was

the kidney difficulty. I never

that 1 am justified in recommend
