I was treated by a physician and he stated that I would never get entirely rid of them unless I had them lanced and the core taken out. He operated on them and I was not bothered with any more until last f ill, when one made its appearance. I canit to the conclusion tha: my blood v . out 01 order, .u.d that the kidneys *c ixit ^eriu -uing their functions ri :ht, and got a box of Doan's Kidney Pills, taking thein as directed, and they did ail that was claimed for them.
