One of the younger mem- bers^frm^^^^flttad weak kidneys and Doan's Kicftiey Fills cured her. I advise anyone who has kidney complaint to take this remedy." If your back aches--if your kidneys bother you, don't simply ask for a kidney remedy--ask distinctly for Doan's Kidney Pills, the same that Mr. Bowers had--the remedy backed by home testimony. 50c all stores.
