CONVINCING PROOF FROM GRATEFUL USERS
IN HOSPITAL FOR NINE MONTHS.
Awful Tale of Suffering From Kidney Trouble.
Alfred J. O'Hrien, No. 2nd St.. Sterling Colo., says: "I
was in the Baltimore Marine Hospital for nine months. I
was emaciated from fever, had a persist
ent ache in my back and was completely
worn out. The urine was in a terrible
state, and some days I would pass half a
gallon of blood. I left the hospital be
cause they wanted to operate on me. I
then went to St. Joseph's Hospital In
Omaha and put in three months there
without any gain. I was pretty well dis
couraged when I was advised to use
Doan's Kidney Pills, but by the time I
had used one box the pain in the back
left me. I kept right on. and a perfect
cure was the result. You may put anyone In communication

my friends gave me up to die. On my
