A Strong Ulan AND A WEAK BACK ARB NEVER POUND TOGETHER. Whena woman breaks down eheinvariubly tells you ' her back gave out.' The con stitutional weak spot in womankind is the kidneys. That is natural for tho distribution of weight throughout the body in the sexes. Women aro the heaviest from the waist down ; men are the heaviest from tho waist up. 'The small of the back' is much smaller proportionally in women thau in men. The kidnoys lie under the small of the back. Hende women sufferers from kidney complaint are more numerous than men, except where the occupation of men exercises a constant strain on the kidneys. But thanks to science, wherever found, and whatever cause, and in either sex, Doau's Backache Kidney Pills will cure that back ache as surely as yon take them. We know it, and everybody in Wellington knows it by this time. 4 Read tho following valuable information from Mrs. E. Loman, of Swift St., thiB town, a widow. She says. — ' My back has been very painful for Bomo m...
