good remedy for the back and kidneys.
I was troubled for a long lime with my
kidney secretions, which were full of
sediment, very dark and of a strong
odor and caused me annoyance during
the night. My hack has caused me
great suffering especially at night,
right across the small of it. A dull
aching pain existed which caused me to
lay awake all hours of the night, there
by losing rest, greatly to my discom
fort as well as to the derangement of
my general health. I tried all kinds of
remedies, liniments and plasters, but
nothing gave me any relief, Seeing
Doan's Kidney Pills advertised in our
papers I obtained them. Since using
them according to directions, the secre
