If the reader wants stronger proof than the following statement and ex perience of a resident of Norwich, what can it be ? Eugene Sweet, living on Sunnyside Avenue, Norwich, Conn., says: "It is at least twelve years ago that I first learned of the value of Doan's Kidney Pills. At that time I was in great need of a kidney remedy. For eight weeks I had been confined to my bed on ac count of lumbago, and was almost help less, not being able to move at all with out assistance. My suffering was about all any person could endure. Sharp pains across my loins and kidney reaions caused me misery of the worst kind. In addition to this I was an noyed by the imperfect action of the kidney secretions. I had three of the best physicians In Providence, R. I., but they failed to make the slightest improvement in my condition. It was finally my god fortune to read of Doan's Kidney Pills, and I was so much impressed with what was said in their favor that I began their use. Their beneficial effect was soon notlceaMe and I continued to improve until by the time I had taken the contents of four fooxeB, I was able to resume my work. I give the entire credit to Doan's Kid ney Pills, and from that time on I have never been without the remedy In the house. More than one sufferer from rheumatism and kidney complaint has tlianked me for telling him about the efficiency of Doan's Kidney Pills, and it will, afford me a great pleasure to corroborate every word of my state ment.
