JOHN L. QUQIG,
We have never before sold a remedy
with the QUICK action of simple
buckthorn bark, glycerine, etc., as
mixed in Adler-i-ka, the appendicitis
preventative. ONE SPOONFULL re
lieves sour stomach, gas and consti
pation AT ONCE. Charles E. Stout,
GOOD FORWEAK EYES
The quick action of simple camphor,
hydrastis, witchhazel, etc., as mixed
in Lavoptik eye wash astonishes j
people. One small bottle helps any
case weak, sore or strained eyes.

Stout, Druggist. (C-2)
THAT MORNING LAMENESS.
If you are lame every morning, and
suffer urinary ills, there must be a
cause. Often it’s weak kidneys. To
strengthen the weakened kidneys and
avert more serious troubles, use Doan’J
Kidney Pills. You can rely on O’Neifl
Mrs. M. D. Murphy, O’Neill, says:
“I can recommend Doan’s Kidney Pills
very highly for I have used them for
several years as a kidney tonic. At
times I have been so lame that I
couldn’t straighten up and at night I
was restless and unable to sleep.
Mornings I would get up feeling all
tired out and miserabe. I had known
of Doan’s Kilney Pills doing good for
others and this led me to try them.
I got a box at Steut’s Drug Store and
I felt much better after using them.
I have used Doan’s since and they
keep my kidneys in good condition. I
believe Doan’s to be the best kidney
remedy of all.”
Price 60c, at all dealers. Don’t
simply ask for a kidney remgdy—get
Doan’s Kidney Pills—the same that
Mrs. Murphy had. Foster-Milburn
Co., Mfrs., Buffalo, N. Y.
