TESTED AND PROVEN There is a Heap of Solace in Being Able to Depend Upon a Well-Earned Reputation For months Tupelo readers have seen the constant expression of praise for Doan's Kidney Pills and read about the good work they have done in this lo cality. What other remedy ever pro duced such convincing proof of merit? F. H. Foster, machinist, 104 Main street, Okolona, Miss., says: "I think a strain affected my kidneys, causing them to act irregularly. My back ached and felt weak and the doctor said thç trouble was due to my kidneys. A few boxes of Doan's Kidney Pille removed the complaint and I am glad to say that it has never returned." Price 50c at all dealers. Don't simply ask for a kidney remedy—get Doan's Kidney Pills—the same that Mr. Foster had. Foster-Milburn Co., Props., Buf falo, N. Y.
