from baekacho for a long while. At
times I cou'.d not work on account of
the aching across the small of my hack
and the dull pain gave me no rest day
or night. I could not stand straight
and if I sat for a bit and attempted to
arise I had to catch hold of something
to pull myself up. The secretions from
the kidneys were very red, full of sedi
mont and got like a jelly after they
stood for a while. I could not retain
them any longth of time and had to
rlee often at night. I tried several
highly recommended remedies and
used liniments, but nothing did me any
good until I got a box of Doan's Kidney
Pills at tho Palmotto Drug Co. and
used them according to directions.
They gave mo relief almost at once and
since using them the kidney secretions
have gotten clear and natural and I do
not havo to get up at nights as I used
to, while the backache has all left me."

White Stone Lithia Water,
Is the lightest water on the market. Wo realize that this is claiming a great
doal, and we could not afford to make this assortlon unless wo knew that we
could prove it to bo true. But it does not tako an expert to test tho roftness of
a Mineral Water. Whon carbonating a mineral wator, if it Is a hard water the
gases will not bo absorbod in tho wator, and whon tho bottle is opened, the gas
es escape, and the water Is left Hat and hard, whilo if it is a soft wator, like
White Stono Lithia, it will retain its gases for hours after being unstopped.
Head what somo prominent persons you know have to say of tho merits of j
the White Stone Lithia Water;
Greenville, S. C, Oct. 10, l!>02,
After a scrvico of ono season at
White Htono Lithia Spring?, ai resi
dent physician I do not hesitate to pay
that tho efTcct of tho water upon thoso
who dilnk it for any length of time,
has been porfeetly marvelous. Invari
ahly an increase both In llesh and ap
petite was perceptible In ono woek,
proving it to bo a mineral wator of
undoubted powerful tonlo property. Its
peculiar adaptability to diseases origi
nating from disorders of the kidney,
bladder and liver, such as Dropsy,
Bright'sdisoasesJMabetesand uric acid
calculi, and all forms of Dyspepsia,
Rheumatism and Oout is to bo e:c
Eected from the sploudid analysis, it |
as been noted frequently that visi
tors before coming here bad to follow
every meal with somo form of correc
tive, or confine themselves entirely to
preengested foods; soon discard these I
entirely, being delighted to find that)
tho water alone?naturo'soMn remedy
sufficed. Of the many who drink thic
water this season for ten days consecu

benefit and a perceptible gain In wolgt,
varying from* two to five pounds.
