[ How Senator Tillman Regained
In the April issue of "Physical
Culture" magazine, Senator Benja
min R. Tillman tells an interesting
story of his fight for life and health.
Today he is regarded as the health
mentor of the U. S. Senate.
Senator Tillman was stricken
with paralysis in February 1910 as
he was walking up the Capitol stops.
He was pent to a sanitarium where
no medicine was given; the treat
ment being hot and cold water
baths, bot water to drink, and a sys
tematic course of diet.
After staying in the sanitarium a
short time and making a thorough
study of his own body, Senator
Tillman began to practice the sim
ple course of living advocated by
The four chief things which
helped him to regain life and health
Hot water drink; a simple diet;
deep breathing; and careful and
regular practice of physical culture
He drinks three quarts of hot
water regularly everv day, and some
times five or six. He drinks his
water before and after meals and
the first thing in the morning. He
affirms that drinking immediately
after meals does good and not
His diet consists chiefly of vege
tables; onions, spinach and Irish
potatoes being his favorites. Fruit
and milk are also important items,
and cheese and eggs take the place
His deep-breathing exercises are
performed systematically and often.
In taking exercise, he uses dumb
bells and an iron bed. He de
scribes these in detail in "Physi
cal Culture" magazine. In ad
dition to these exercises, he makes
it a rule to walk several miles each
Senator Tillman points out that
these methods can accomplish the
seemingly impossible for anyone
with a run-down body, and heartily
recommends it to all people leading
an inactive physical life-especially
other Senators and public men.

"The only medicine that ever
helped my husband is Tanlac, and
when he began taking it he had
been in bad health for about twen
ty-five years and had been doctor

and stomach trouble, and he had
spells of stomach trouble so painful
that he would almost go wild, and
he had headaches so bad he could
hardly stand them. His kidney
trouble was very bad and his whole
system was out of order and weak
These spells of stomach trouble
started like an attack of colic and
the pain spread over his back and
hips. He had spells of kidney
colic, too, the doctors told him.
"Mr. Scott took six bottles of
Tanlac, taking the last about eignt
months ago. He doesn't have thuse
spells now, and he has had only

Meetings in the Baptist Church.
A series of meetings began in the
Baptist church Sunday morning, Dr.
Jones preaching the sermon. A
large congregation was in attend

the advent of this day very propi

plea for repentance and consecrated
activity on the part of all the chris
tians of Edgefield.
He gave a very cordial invitation
to christians of all denominations
to attend, and all singers in town
of every church to come and assist
the singer, E. L. Mr. Fairchild, in
making the music as effective as
possible. A large number of per
sons remained after the service and
expressed their intention of help
