fact, alone, will encourage a re

Benrtettsville Women Are Finding
Relief ai Last.
It does seem that women have
more than a fair share of thc aches
and pains that afflict humanity;
they must "keep up" must attend
to duties in sp'.to of constantly
aching backs or headaches, dizzy
spells, bearing-down pains; they
must stoop over, when to stoop
means torture. They must walk and
bend and work with racking pains
and many aches from kidney ills.
Kidneys cause more su tiering than
any other organ of the body. Keep
the kidneys well and health is easily
maintained. Read of a remedy for
kidneys only that helps and cures
the kidneys and is endorsed by
people you know.
Mrs ?V RGrice, Merkinson St.,
Benncttsvilio, S C., says: " I am
very thankful for what Doans Kid
ney Pills did for me and willingly
recommend them. 1 was bothered
fer a long time by dull, nagging
backaches, the pains often extend
ing into my loins. Headaches and
dizzy spells occured frequently. I
could not rest well at night and
morning arose so tired and lang
uid that I did not feel like commenc
ing the day's duties. I was also
bothered by a frequent desire to
pass the kidney secretions from
this I decided that my kidney were
out of order. Reading about Doan's
Kidney Pills, I had my husband
procure a box for me at J.T Doug
las drug store and I began taking
them, following the directions
closely. They gave me moro relief
than any remedy 1 had previously
taken not only stopping tho back
aches but streng'honing my kidneys
and restoring my lost energy."
