wealthiest and most influential citizens in the
county. In ft recent letter he soys : " I had been
suffering' from pains in my back and general kid
ney complaint for some time, and had used many
remedies without any but temporary relief. The
pains in my back had become so severe that T wns
prevented from attending to my work and could
not move about without the use of a cane. Hear
ing, through a friend, of the wonderful cures ef
fected by Oregon Kidney Tea, I was induced to try
a box, and from that very first dose I found intttnnt
relief, and before using half the contents of the
box the pains in my back entirely disappeared.
I have every faith in the virtues of the Oregon
Kidney Tea, and can conscientiously recommend
it to my friends. I would not be without it for
Oregon Kjdney Tea cures backache, inconti

painful sensation while urinating, and all affec
