OH! MY BACK!
The Expression of Many a Kidney
Sufferer in Plattsmouth
A stubborn backache is cause to
suspect kidney trouble. When the
kidneys are inflamed and swollen,
stooping brings a sharp twinge in
the small of the back that almost
takes the breath away. Doan's Kid
ney Pills revive sluggish kidneys
relieve aching backs. Ask your
neikhbor. Here's Plattsmouth proof:
Mrs. C. C. Burbridge, Vine street,
says: "Some years ago my back caus
ed me a great deal ' of misery. It
ached most all the time. After I
had taken Doan's Kidney Pills for a
while my back felt as strong as ever.
Since then. I have always considered
Doan's fine for backache and kid-!
ney trouble and have recommended j
them to my neighbors when I have
heard them complaining."
Price 60e at all dealers. Don't j
simply ask for a kidney remedy ;
get Doan's Kidney Pills the same
that Mrs. Burbridge had. Foster
