Rid Yourself of Kidney Poisons
Do you suffer burning, scanty, or too frequent urination, backache, headache, dizziness, or swollen feet and ankles? Are you tired, nervous - feel unstrung and don't know what is wrong?

Then give some thought to your kidneys. Be sure they function properly, for functional kidney disorder permits excess waste to stay in the blood, and to poison and upset the whole system.

Use Doan's Pills. Doan's are for the kidneys only. They are recommended the world over. You can get the genuine, time-tested Doan's at any drug store.
