DOAN'S KIDNEY PILLS
CURE SICK KIDNEYS
Richmond Propf
W. W. Godsden, Sr., 711 y, E. Marahall Street Rlchmond, Va., eaya: "I
was badly afflicted wlth kldney ond bladder complaint. My back ached con.
ctantly, and was so lame that I could hardly attend to my work at times. I could
nelther stoop nor lii't without having paina through my kldneya, and lf I made
a sudden movement or a inisstep it was sure to cause a sharp atltch. The kldney
secretlons were unnatural and contained sediment. My feet and limbs swelled
to alraos twicc their natural size, and lt seemed as lf needles were being stuck
into them. At one time I was conflned to my bed for three months, and it was
while ln thls miserable condition that Doan's Kidney Pilla were brought to my
attentlon. A 6upply was procured. and 'n a short time after I began their use I
felt much better. 1 contlned taking tliis remedy, and waa soon able to go back
to work, being in better health than I had known for years"
Mrs. Sallie E. Cole, 309 North Twenty-first Street, Richmond, Va? says: "I can
speak a good word for Doan's Kidney Pills, for they are without doubt a first-elass kidney
remedy. For a long time I was subject to pains through my loins, often so severe as to
handicap me in domg my housework. I also had trouble from the kidney secretions.
My husband, who had been cured of kidney complaint by Doan's Kidney Pills, insisted
that I try them, and I finally did so, getting a box at Owens & Mirior Drug Co. This
remedy completely cured me, and I am now free from kidney complaint."?(Statement
given July 23, 1007.) . ? > v
Wfitm Mrs. Cole was interviewed on June 2, 1909, she said: "The testimonjal I gave
in favor of Doan s Kidney Pills two years ago holds good to-day. The cure has been a
permanent one.", ! ? ?
V/OU hear a great deal about uric acid
trouble. This is only a form of kidney
sickness. When weak, the kidneys pass off
only a part of the uric poison. The rest re
irains in the body to irritate the nerves and
disturb the organs. Uric acid causes heart
trouble, sick headache, bad digeslicn, rheUi
matism, neuralgia, gout, dropsy and grovei.
Doan's Kidney Pills relieve uric acid troubles
by restoring perfect action of the kidneys,
Sediment disappears, passages become free
and regular, kidneys well. As you will see
by reference to the opposite lower panel, we
prove it by home testimony, and home testi?
mony proves the merits of Doan's Kidney

"I Suffered Years
With My Back."
Backache resulting from weak
kidneys, a bad cold or other cause,
usually rendcrs the sufferer unfit
for work and often results in per?
manent disability.
'I suffered for years with my
back, or kidney trouble, and have
tried a number of remedies from
different physicians. More than a
year ago, one of our local druggists
induced me to try
Dr. Miles* Anti-Pain Pills
and after using them some three
months I found a decided improve?
ment in my kidneys, and I am glad
to say that I hope soon to be fully
restored to health." J. P. Allen,
Ex-Judge City Court, Glasgow, Ky.
As long as pain is present in any
part of the body rest is impossible
and the system becoming weakened
ls exposed to any form of disease to
which the sufferer may be inclined.
Dr. Miles' Anti-Pain Pills
by steadying the irritated nerve
centers, make refreshing sleep pos?
sible, thereby enabling the body to
recover lost strength. As a remedy
