must keep up must attend to duties
in spite of constantly aching backs
or headaches dizzy spells bearing
down pains they must stoop over
when to stoop means torture They
must walk and bend and work with
racking pains and many aches from

fering than any other organ of the
body Keep the kidneys well and
health is easily maintained Read of
a remedy for kidneys only that helps
and cures the kidneys and is endorsed

hardly straighten Towards morning
the pains were so acute that I was
awakened by them A few months
