of a neat inhaler, that is so small and

which may have oxistcd in Iho reader's
mind's on this subject.
L. H Potter, employed In tho Cotton
Mill, residing on Factory Hill, says:
'?My kidneys and back have bothered
me for quite a while. My back seems
to be the weakest'spot about me, and
when 1 take cold it always settles
there and knocks me out. I have been
so bad at times that I had to lose sev
eral days from work. The kidney se
cretions were disordered, very dark
and full of sediment and annoyed me
by making me getupduring tho night.
I tried different remedies and wore
plasters but nothing did me any good
until I got a box of Doan's Kidney
Pills at Palmetto Drug Company's
store. Sinco using them tho backache I
has left me and I can sleep all night |
without my rest boing disturbed and
the kidney secretions have all cleared
up and now have no sediment in them."
