"GAVE ME THE
MONTHS TO LIVE'
MISS GARRICK WAS TOLD HEF
CASE WAS HOPELESS?GREAT
JOY CAME YEAR LATER.
"You have rbout three months t<
live." Miss Effie Garrick, of 111(
Huger St., Columbia, was told, aftei
> she had undergone an operation foi
stomach trouble, more than a yeai
ago. Miss Garrick says "I did no'
die, but I did continue to feel terri
ble until recently when I found i
means of combatting my troubles."
Miss Garrick says she believes she
has at last found a means of restor
jner her health, which, all too soor
' for her years, has continually threat
ened during the past ten years t<
break down completely. She hat
been n sufferer with stomach trouble
and other kindred ailments, which re

duced her health to a state wiuci
made her almost wretched all th<
time, she said. Tanlac, the mastei
medicine, Miss Garrick believes, wil
prove its superior worth in her case
as it has in hundreds of other case:
in South Carolina. Her statemenl
"I have suffered for ten years
with stomach trouble, indigestion
nervousness, sleeplessness and awfui
headaches. My system all the time
has been in a very much run dowr
condition. More than a year age
I became so ill I felt I surely wouhi
die. After I had undergone an operation,
I was told I could hardl:,
live more than three months.
"Of course, I did not die, but I
did continue to feel terribly, an<j
' nothing seemed to relieve my troubles.
I took many kinds of medicines,
but to no avail. I would
have headaches frequently, and they
were so painful I thought I would go
crazy. While I had a headache, 1
was always forced to stay in bed. I
was very nervous. I would suffer
with a full, heavy feeling after eating,
and I had little appetite. I
was forced to eat a very light diet.
My condition has been steadily growing
worse for the past ten years.
"I decided to try Tanlac as a
sort of forlorn hope, as I had read
so much of its wonderful effects. The
first bottle relieved my stomach trouble
to an extent that I consider remarkable.
I began to sleep well,

so much did it improve. I would
wake at night and be so hungry that
I would have to get something to
eat. My system responded immediately
to Tanlac, and built up rapidly
"Tanlac is a great medicine, and I
am always glad to recommend it.
It is due many good words, for it is
so valuable a remedy."

' well known citizen, has an article in
the Columbia State, advocating another
bridge across the Savannah.
The State contains the following on
To the Editor of The State:
t The legislatures of South Carolina
and Georgia should each appoint a
committee to confer and make recommendations
to the two states for
a plan to bridge the Savannah river
between the two states.
Here is a larpe stream that sep)
arates the two states. Not being en)
tirely in either state, it is unbridged.
r Bridges over this large stream are
r needed in this modern day.
p If the two states shoud agree to
t erect one bridge a year over the
. stream until ten bridges were erecci
ed, it would mean a great deal to
each state. Each state could pay half
? the cost; and each state could ar.
range its method of raising the moni
ey to pay its half?probably the
. county which a bridge touches should
> pay half of the state's expense.
; . This is an important matter and
! | will nave to oe taKen up ueiure luny
. ?the sooner the better. On.j bridge
i the first year at a point a'oous half
j way between Anderson and Augusta
would serve a great territory; then
[ one between Augusta and Savannah
, the next year; then another cutting
5 the upper river into a quarter sect
tion the third year, etc.
Can't you agitate this for the oene5
fit of the two states and especially
, the large number of counties from
I the mountains to the seaboard on
i the western side of the state?
