A Safe Test
For those who are in need of a rem-
edy for kidney troubles and backache,
it is a good plan to try Doan’s Kidney
Pills. They are strongly recommend-
ed by Bellefonte people.
Mrs. J. F. Thal, 28 N. Thomas St.,
Bellefonte, says: “I suffered with
backache and severe pains through
my kidneys. I had headaches and
dizzy spells, when I first got up in the
morning and my kidneys acted irreg-
ularly. My attention was called to
Doan’s Kidney Pills and I heard of so
many being benefited by their use
that I procured a bax at the Green
Pharmacy Co. That one box remov-
ed the backache. The headaches and
dizzy spells left and my kidneys be-
came regular and I felt better in every
way. I cheerfully recommend Doan’s
to any one who suffers as I did.”
(Statement given October 19, 1919).
On October 18, 1918, Mrs. Thal
said: “I am very glad to confirm my
former endorcement of Doan’s Kidney
Pills. Today I am a well woman and
to recommend Doan’s is a pleasure.”
