OH! MY BACK!
Expression W* itiaWy °a kYd
A stubborn backache is cause
to suspect kidney trouble When
he kidneys are inflamed and
swollen, stoooping brings a
sharp twinge in the small of the
back that almost takes the
breath away. Doan’s Kidney
Pills revive sluggish kidneys—
relieve aching backs. Here’s

as they had been highly recom

just as advertised. I had a
slight case of kidney trouble
and for a short-time was in a
bad way with my back, which
was very sore. I used Doan’s
Kidney Pills and they greatly

is one certain means," replied the
prince, "by which 1 can be sure nevet
