Plattsmouth testimony has been pub
lished to prove the merit of Doan's
Kidney Pills to others in Plattsmouth
who suffer from bad backs and kidney
ills. Lest any sufferer doubt that the
cures made by Doan's Kidney Pills are
thorough and lasting, we produce con
firmed proof-statements from Platts
mouth people saying that the cures
they told of years ago were permanent.
Here's a Plattsmouth case:
W. T. Cole, retired farmer, 60S Lo
cust street, Plattsmouth, Nebr, says;
"I contracted kidney trouble while
serving in the army. There was a dull,
havy ache and lameness across the
snail of my back that annoyed me to
quite an extent and at times the kidney j
secretions were scanty accompanied j
with pain in passage. Reading about
Doan's Kidney Pills, I was led to get a
box at Gering & Co's. drug store and
began their use. They made a marked
improvement and entirely relieved me
of suffering." (Statement given June
On December 20, 1903, Mr. Cole added !
to the above: "I am pleased to renew
the testimonial I gave two years ago
endarsing Doan's Kidney Pills. I ad
vise anyone afflicted with lumbago or
any other kidney disorder to give this
remedy a trial."
