BLOCKADED. Every Household in Brattleboro Should Know How to Resist It. The back aches because the kidneys are blockaded. Help the kidneys with their work. The back will ache no more. Lots of proof that Poan 's Kidney Pills do this. It 's the best proof, for it comes from Brattleboro. Chiirles G. Endlich, painter, 5 Main street, Brattleboro, Vt., says: "I know that Bonn's Kidney Pills are an excel lent remedy as they have been used in my family with satisfactory results. A member of the household wns troubled for months with pains through the loins and headaches. Colds aggravated the trouble. A friend finally advised a trial of Doan's Kidney Pills, and a box wns procured at Holden 's drug store. They proved to be just what was needed and proved of great benefit in every way." (Statement given Oct. 12, 1905.) A Later Endorsement. On July 6, 1911, Mr. Endlich was in terviewed and he said: "All that I said in praise of Doan's.Kidney Pills some years ago still holds good.
