A cold does not get well of it

cold wears you out, and your cough
becomes serious if neglected. Hack

relieved congestion. Young and

All the shadows disappearing,

That is exactly what Tanlac one
and half bottles of it, did for Mrs.
Annie Tallant, of No. Sixth St.,
Greenville, S. C., she said in her
statement endorsing Tanlac and
telling" of the remarkable way it re
lieved her troubles. While Mrs.
Tallant told of the results Tanlac
gave her, two of her sisters and her
husband were present. Her state
ment, one of the most remarkable
ever given Tanlac, follows:
"My system was badly run down,
and either that caused rae to suffer
with a lot of other ailments or the
other ailments caused my health to
become bad," said Mrs. Tallant.
"I could not sleep at all at night
and I would roll and toss in bed for
hours each night. I never did sleep
"No one knows how much I suf
ferred. I had headaches all the
time and sometimes I thought I
could not stand this pain and I
thought they would kill me. My
nerves were in bad shape, too,
and I would jump at the least noise.
I had no energy, and I was very
weak. Really I had to force myself
to do my housework, abd I just

th rough with. I was sick all over,
and it seemed as if I could not get
well. I suffered a lot with pains
across ray stomach, too, and with
indigestion. My sisters and mv
busband told mel looked sickly and
weak before I took Tanlac, and
they did not know what would be
come of me.
"The testimonials of Tanlac that
were printed in the papers convinc
ed me it would help rae, and so I
began taking it. I weighed when I
began taking Tanlac, and when I
had taken one and a half (li) bot
tles I had gained fifteen (lo)pounds.
I stopped Tanlac then, for as sure
as I live I was then a well woman,
and I did not have an ache nor a
pain. That was two mouths ago,
and ? feel even better now than I
did wiien I quit Tanlac, for I have
more strength and energy.
"Tanlac gave me a wonderfal
appetite, though 1 could not eat
anything hardly before I began Tan
lac and neither did I want to eat,
my stomach was in such bad shape.
I can eat anything now, though,
and I never have indigestion. I
feel fine and hearty and strong now,
and I think it is just wonderful the
way Tanlac broke up my troubles.
I am not sickly now, and I do not
look nor feel that way. I guess if
I had continued to take Tanlac I
would have gotten so heavy I
would be clumsy by this time.
"Everybody around in my neigh
borhood is talking about the good
Tanlac did me, and we think it al
most worked a miracle for me. Sure
enough, now, it does not yeera that
any medicine could have done as
much for anyone as Tanlac did for
me. but Tanlac is the only medi

"I am glad to recommend it, and
Tanlac deserves the highest praise I
can give it. I had been planning
to write you and tell you how much
good it did me an'-1 how wonderful
I think it is, but I could not find
the time, it seemed, and so I am
glad you came to see me."
