[ .1. T. Crenshaw, .Main St., Wil-

position to speak well of Doan's
Kidney I 'ills. About six months
ago I was bothered to quite an
extent by rheumatic pains in my
shoulders and a dull ache across
my kidneys. 1 noticed that the
kidney secretions were scanty
and irregular in passage and
these symptoms plainly showed
that my kidneys were disordered.
I finally procured a box of
Doan's Kidney Pills and began
using them. 1 gave this remedy a
thorough trial and found that it
j lives up to the claims made for
it. The pains and aches soon
disappeared and the passages of
the kidney secretions became re-
gular." 10-t2.
