use a tested kidney medicine.
An Ocala citizen tells of Doan's
Kindey Pills. Could you demand
more convincing? proof of merit?
R. C. Lover'dse, 2 2o N. Magonlia
street, Ocala, Fla.. says: "I have
taken Doan's Kidney Pills for kidney
and bladder trouble and have found
them to be a reliable medicine. I
don't hesitate to advise their use in
cases of kidney complaint."
Mr. Loveridge is only one of many;
Ocala people who have gratefully en endorsed
