And Is Happening to Willmar People
Every Week.
The case told below is not an un
common thing. The same occurs fre
quently and will continue to happen
as long as folks have kidneys and
overtax the kidneys.
Mrs. Peter Olson, 126 Benson Ave.
E, Willmar, Minn., says: "One in our
home had such a bad back that ha
just would give out at times. The weak
ness and pain across his back made
it hard for him to do anything and if
he took cold, the trouble was always
worse. Kidney weakness also caused
him lots of annoyance. Failing to find
help, he was certainly glad when ne
began using Doan's Kidney Pills to
find they were the remedy he needed
and it wasn't long before his back was
strong and his kidneys normal."
Price 50c, at all dealers. Don't
simply ask for a kidney remedy—get
Doan's Kidney Pills—the same that
Mrs. Olson recommends. Foster-Mil
