KEEP YOUNG. People with bad backs and weak kidneys are apt to feel old at sixty. Many old folks say Doan's . Kidney Pills ( help them keep young. Here's a Lexington ca.se : W. E. Tarlton, retired farmer, 2008 Main'St, says: "I am a man past seventy-seven years of age and 1 believe the occasional use of Doan's Kidney Pills has kept my kidneys in good condition. Years ago I was troubled a great deal with kidney weakness. Ev ery muscle in my back was sore and lame and sharp twinges of p,ain would often catch me ii the small of my back. My kid neys were weak and the secre tions were highly colored and contained sediment. I read a buut Doan's Kidney Pills and bought some at Marshall's Drug Store. Relief soon followed and it was not long before Doan's Kidney Pills cured me up in good shape again. Since that time I have used Doan's Kidney Pills off and on as a tonic for my kidneys. They keep me in fine condition. I certainly think Doan's are a fine kidney reme dy." ' 00c, at all dealers. Foster-Mil-burn.Co., Mfgrs., Buffalo, N. Y.
