Kidney Diseases Are Too Dangerous

neglect your kidneys. Cure the kid

dy, Doan's Kidney Pills.
Mrs. W. H.Gillmore, wife of W. H.
GUI-more, carpenter, residing at Fer
relltown, Humboldt, Tenn., says: "For
a number of years my husband suf
fered with kidney trouble, at times so
severely that it was actual pain tor
him to stoop or lift anything. Not
only did his back give him a great
deal of trouble but he was frequently
distressed with most severe headaches.
Doan'8,Kldney Pills attracted his at
tention and from the statements of
others who had made use of them he
was led to believe they were a remedy
that was up to the representations,
lie procured a box and before he had
usen all of oue box there was a won
derful improvement in his condition.
We consider Doan's Kidney Pills wor
