you ask for stronger proof of merit?

kidneys for a long time. My kidneys
caused me a great deal of annoyance
by their disordered condition and I had
water sacks under my eyes. I could
get no rest at night and was tired out
most of the time. I used Doan's Kid
ney Pills and could see a change for]
the better from the very beginning.'
About six boxes of Doan’s cured me!
and I have not had any return of the
trouble. I am glad to recommend this
remedy from the splendid cure I re
ceived from its use.”
Price 60c, at all dealers. Don’t
simply ask for a kidney remedy—get
Doan’s Kidney Pills—the same that
Mrs. Conklin had. Foster-Milburn
