IT'S A MISTAKE. [Newspaper Article] — The Times and Northern Advertiser, Peterborough, South Australia — 27 August 1920
IT'S A MISTAKE. Many people, in a misguided effort 10 get rid of backache, rely on plas ters, liniments, and other makeshifts. The right treatment is kidney treat ment, and a remarkably recommended kidney medicine is Doan's. Backache Kidney Pills. The following is the ex perience typical of the work of this grand remedy: Mr. W. Hunt, Photographer, First Street, Quorn, says:-"As the result of my kidneys being very much out of order, I suffered a good deal from severe pains in my back, urinary trouble, and dizzy feelings. These symptoms were very distressing, par ticularly the backache, which hamper ed me a lot, as I could not move about freely or stoop without suffering agony. Doan's Backache Kidney Pills \yere brought under my notice as a cure for kidney trouble, so I got some, and they proved most beneficial. A few doses eased my suffering a little, and five bottles completely and per manently cured rae. I say "perma nently," for three years have elapsed since I gave up taking Doan...

G. Edquist, supervisor &lt;>i nature study in the Education De partment. During the past nine years two competitions have been con ducted, and a third will be concluded in 19S1.
