that I did not take any interest in
anything before I took Tanlac, and
I often told my folksjtbat if I should

stoop to pick it up," said Mrs. T.
M. Wooten, of 153 Morgan Ave.,
Greenville, as she began to tell how
Tanlac had changed her condition
from that of almost an invalid to a
healthy, strong, happy woman. Mrs.
Wooten's statement follows:
"I suffered from a complete phys
ical breakdown and the after effects
of a long drawn out spell of mala
ria. I was very weak-so weak
that I was in bed at least half of
every day, and I did not try to do
any, of my housework for a rather
a long time. My appetite had left
me and it seemed that 1 didn't want
anything to eat and I couldn't find
much to tempt my appetite. I
could not sit up long at a time, and
I had absolutely lost all interest in

Tanlac did me a great deal

certainly did take a lot of medicine
before I took Tanlac. The Tanlac
gave me a good appeiite almost
from the start and soon I began to
improve right along in health and
strength, and now I am able to do
my housework and my ironing and
I am strong and hearty. I give
Tanlac all the credit for getting me
out of bed and on my 'feet again,
and no one can fully understand
how much Tanlac did for me un
less they had seen me before I took
it, and I had been almost an invalid
for two years before I took Tanlac
