Kidney Pills are a great medicine and
did mo more good than anything elso I
ever usod. My back was ailing for a
good long spoil, and sometimes It was
so bad that I was entirely laid up. I
could scarcely get my clothes on, my
back was so weak, and tho kidney ee
cretions wore all out of shape, looked
like blood and on standing looked just
like liver. The too frequent action
was greatly annoying especially at
night when my rest was greatly dis
turbed. Among ail the thmgs I tried
nothing did mo any good. I saw tho ad
vertisement about Doan's Kidney Pills
and wont to the Palmetto Drug Co.'s
store and got a box. Thoy are tho best
medicine I ever used and did me good
the first night I used them. Since tak
ing the pills my backache left mo, tho
kidney secretions are all right and do
not disturb me at all. They are a good
remedy and i will give them a good
word to anyone who asks me.

White Stone Lithia Water,
Is the lightest, water on the market. Wo realize that, this is claiming a groat
deal, and we could not afford to make this assertion unless wo knew that wo
could provo it to bo true. But it does cot tako an export to test tho loftnoss of
a Mlnoral Water. When carbonating a mineral water, if it Is a hard water the,
gases will not bo absorbod in tho water, hnd when tho bottle is opened, the gas
es escapo, and the water Is loft llat and hard, While If it is a soft water, like
White Stono Lithia, it will retain Its gases for hours after being unstopped.
Read what 80ino promlnont persons you know have to siy of tho merits of]
the White Stono Lithia Wator:
Greenville, K. C, Oct. 10, 1902,
After a service of one season at
White Stone Lithia Springs, as resi
dent physician I do not hesitate to say
that the effect of iho wator upon those
who dtink It for any length of time,
has bacn perfectly marvelou?. Invari
ably an increase both In flosh and ap
petite was perceptible in ono week,
proving it to bo a mineral wator of
undoubted powerful tonic property. Its
peculiar adaptability to diseases origi
nating from disorders of tho kidney,
bladdor and liver, such as Dropsy,
Bright's diseases, Diabetes and uric acid
calculi, and all forms of Dyspepsia,
Rheumatism and Gout in to bo ex
Eectcd from the splendid analysis. It
as been noted frequently that visi
tors before coming here had to follow
every meal with some form of correc
tive, or confine themselves entirely to
predigested foods; soon dldcard these
entirely, being delighted to find that
tho water alone?nature's omo remedy
sufficed. Of tho many who drink this
water this season for ten days consecu
tively,not. ono but experienced deoided
benefit and a perceptible gain In welgt,
varying from two to five pounds.
