When Housework Drags
Keeping house is hard enough
when well. The woman who has
a bad back, blue, nervous spells,
and dizzy headaches, has a hard
lot, for the family tasks never let
up. Probably it's the result of kid
ney trouble and not the much-feared
"woman's weakness." Strengthen
' the kidneys with Doan's Kidney
Pills. They are as harmless uas
they are effective and may be used
for children with weak kidneys, too.

dorsn't mean saving merely one-third
or one fourth. It means saving 70 per
cent or more, liquid as well as solid.

"keeps his garden on the grocery
