HEED THE WARNING.
Many Uniox City People Havb Donb
so. '"
When the kidneys are weak they give
unmistakable warnings that should not
be ignored. By examining the urine
and treating the kidneys upon the first
sign of disorder, many days of suffer
ing may be saved. Weak kidneys usual
ly expel a dark, ill-smelling urine, full
of brickdust" sediment and painful
in passage. Sluggish kidneys often cause
a dull pain in the small of the back,
headache, dizzy spells, tired, languid
feelings and frequent rheumatic twinges.
Doan's Kidney Pills are for the kid
neys only; they help weak kidneys to
rid the blood of uric poison. There is
no better recommended remedy.
Read the statement that follows:
Mrs. Emma Fonville, 118 Oxford
street, i Martin, Tenn., jUys: "I can
recommend Dnan's KidneyPills highly.
I used them for kidney weakness and
they benefited me."
The above is not an isolated case.
Mrs. Fonville is only one of many in
this vicinity who have gratefully en
dorsed Doan's. If your back aches
if your kidneys bother you, don't sim
ply ask for a kidney remedy ask dis
tinctly for Doas's KidneyTills, the
same that Mrs. Fonville had. Fifty
cents at all stores. Foster-Milburn Co.",
