TOLD IN PLATT3M0UTH
A Resident Known to Ail Cur Read
ers Relates An Experience.
Headers of the Journal have been
told again and again of the merits
of that reliable, time-proved kidney
remedy Doan's Kidney Pills. The
experiences told are not those of un
known persons living far away. The
cases arc Piattsmouth cases, told by
Thco. Starkjohan, retired farmer,
Locust and Ninth streets, Piatts
mouth, says: "For several years
Doan's Kidney Pills have been used
in our family for backache and oth
er symptoms of kidney trouble and
they have always proved to be all
that is claimed of them. Whenever
my back feels a little lame and my
kidneys are not acting as they should,
I take Doan's Kidney Pills a few days
and they never fail to do me good. J
Doan's can't be equaled and anyone
having kidney trouble should use
them, fcr they are reliable."
Price 60c at all dealers. Don't
simply ask for a kidney remedy get
Doan's Kidney Pills the same that
Mr. Starkjohn uses. Foster-Milburn
