Here is a citizen who indorses our claim: William Ellis, stevedore, of 731 Folsom. street, says: "I was never laid up witb backache, but many a time I thought the pain across my loins would force me to leave. work, particularly if I was engaged in any heavy employment Long before backache existed . I had trouble with the kidney secretions, which were of a dark and somewhat sandy color. I noticed Doan's Kidney Pills advertised, and as my back was lame and aching at the time I went to the.
