Here is proof which should convince every Rock Island reader: John Mager. of 223 Eighteenth street, proprietor of the architectural iron and brass works, says: "There were such terrible pains through my kidneys that I could hardly eit down or get up without suffering from sharp, shooting pains through by back. In the morning I often felt so lame and sore that I could not get up and I was practically rolled out of bed. and more ' than once my wife has assisted me to et up. I had my attention called to Doan's Kidney Pills and got a box at the Harper House drug store. A few 3eemed to relieve me, and pains grew less, and after using one box I was nearly free from them. I got a second box, and before I had finished it the ; trouble left me." For sale by all dealers. Price, 50 cent. I oster-MIIburn company, Buffa lo. N. Y., sole agents for the United States.
