DIZZINESS IS ANNOYING.
As Many Edgefield People Know
When the kidneys are weak or
disorderly, they fail in filterintr
the blood of poisons. A? these
poisons attack the nerves, the result!
is felt in spells of vertigo, just as
drunkenness will make a man dizzy
from the poisoning of alcohol. Diz
ziness, headache, backache and ir
regularity of the kidney secretions
are ell siens of weak or disordered
kidneys and should not be neglect
ed. Use Doan's Kidney Pills, the
home-endorsed kidney remedy. Read
this Edgefield resident's statement:
Mrs. J. P. Samuels, 5 Battle Row
?8a.ys: "lt was in 1914 that I used
?Doan's Kidney Pills for the first
time. At that time my kidneys
were giving me a lot of trouble.
The most complaint, was with my
back and it felt stiff and lame all
the time. I couldn't stoop over and
dizzy spells bothered me. My kid
neys acted irregularly and caused
me a great deal of annoyanoe. Fi
nally I began to use Doan's Kidney
Pills and they promptly relieved
me of the trouble."
Price 60c. at all dealers. Don't
simply ask for a kidney remedy
get Doan's Kidney Pills-the same
that cured Mr. Samuels, Foster-Mil

Says This Texas Lady.
Gonzales, Tex.- Mrs. Minnie Phil
pot, of this place, writes: "Five years
ago I was taken with a rain In my
left side, lt was right under my
left rib. It would commence with an
aching and extend up into my left
shoulder and on down into my back
By that time the pain would be BO
severe I would have to take to bed,
and suffered usually about three days
... I suffered this way Xor three years,
and got to be a mere skeleton and was
KO weak I could hardly stand alone.
Was not abli to go anywhere and had
to let my house work go...I suffered
awful with a pain in my back: and I
had the headache all tho time. I just
was unable to do a thing. My lifo j
was a misery, my stomach got in an
awful condition, caused from taking |
so much medicino. I suffered so much
pain. I had just about given up all
hopes ol ou? getting anything to help
One day a Birthday Almanac was
thrown in my yard. After reading
its testimonials I decided to try Car

for I began to improve when on the
