The back ache, because the kidneys

Help the kidneys with their work.
The back will ache no more.
Lots of proof that Doan'a Kidney
Pills do this... v-.'f.
It's the best proof, for it comes from
T. W. Bhankland, who is a street
car conductor on the Woodstock, street
car line, residing at 710 Ellsworth St.j
Portland, says: , "Some time last fall
began having considerable trouble
and annoyance from a dull , aching
pain in the back over the kidneys. I
think it was caused from the. constant
shaking and jarring of the car., I
thought at first it would , disappear
quickly as it came, but this was not
ihe case. Learning of DoaVs Kidney
Pills I procured a box and took them
according to directions. .The result was
entirely satisfactory., , The,, backache
grew less and ..less and soon disap
peared and as far as, I can tell it has
gone for good for there have been no
symptoms of reoccurrence." .,
Plenty of similar proof In Astoria.
