The Proof That the Plattsmouth.
Readers Cannot Deny.
What could furnish stronger evi
dence of the efficiency of any remedy
than the test of time? Thousands ot
people testify that Doan's Kidttej
Pills cure permanently.
Home endorsement should prov
undoubtedly the merit of this remedy.
Years ago your friends and neighbors
testified to the relief they had de
rived from the use of Doan's Kidney
Pills. They now confirm their testi
monials. They say time has complet
ed the test.
J. B. Patridge, Eighth street,
Plattsmouth, Neb., says: "I suffered
almost constantly from pains across)
my loins and kidneys and at times 1
was in a bad way. On several occas
ions I was so badly crippled that I
could only get about with the aid ot
two canes. The first box of Doan's
Kidney Pills, procured from Gerlng
& Co.'s drug store, helped me so
greatly that I continued taking tho
remedy and it brought me entire re
lief. It would be impossible for ma
to speak too highly of Doan's Kidney
The above statement was given la
June, 1906, and on December 29,
1908, Mr. Patridge snlrt: "I will en
dorse Doan's Kidney Tills highly. I
willingly renew the statement I gare
over two years ago in their favor."

Older people having a long ex
perience in world's affairs can always
give you a good advice, especially in
cures of sickness. Our own experi
ence proved that in stomach and
bowel troubles we can always recom
mend Trlner's American E'.ixlr of Bit
ter Wine. It strengthens the stomach
and makes it able to do its regular
work. The stomach will then accept
enough nourishment and will help in
he digestion, which will be completed
in the bowels. New blood is the re
sult of such a thorough digestion. It
quickly fills all veins. Use Trlner's
American Elixir of Bitter Wine when
you are weak, easily tired, without
appetite, when you will have some
trouble after eating, nausea, vomit
ing spells, when you will be nervous,
despondent, when your sleep will be
disturbed. This remedy contains only
red wine and bitter herbs. Use it at
the first symptoms. At drugstores.
