Bellefonte people recommend Doan’s
Kidney Pills. Here’s a Bellefonte
resident’s statement.
Mrs. Christ Young, 16 Potter St.,
says: “For more than a year I suf-
fered with a dull pain in the small
of my back. My back was always
sore and when I bent over, I could
hardly get up again. I didn’t feel
able to do anything about my house.
I had a dull, drowsy feeling all day
long and when I got up in the morn-
ing, I could hardly dress. I was
troubled a lot with dizzy spells and
my kidneys acted irregularly. I read
in our town paper where Doan’s Kid-
ney Pills had helped so many people
of the same trouble that I decided
to give them a trial. The first box
I got at the Gréen Pharmacy Co., cur-
ed me and it has been about three
with my kidneys.” :
(Statement given April 22, 1914.)
On October 18, 1918, Mrs. Young
said: “I am very glad to confirm my
former endorsement recommending
Doan’s Kidney Pills. I have had no
kndney trouble since I used Doan’s
and am now a well woman and owe it
all to Doan’s.”
