Almost Like Miracle
Way Tanlac Worked
Mrs. Evans Says Those
Terrible Spells Have
Been Relieved Suf
fered 12 Years.
Very First Dose or Tanlac Made j
Slight Change for Better is Un
After suffering twelve years, the
last several months of which was so
severe she believed herself on the
verge of the grave, Mrs. Ella Evans,
of Iva, S. C., R. F. D. 4, in June,
1916, had obtained so much relief
from Tanlac that "it seemed almost
like a miracle the way Tanlac
worked", according to her de
scription. Mrs. Evans gave the
following statement regarding the
benefit Tanlac gave ber.
?'I suffered from a very bad case
of stomach trouble for twelve years
before I began taking Tanlac, and it
seemed that no medicine would break
up my trouble. I frequently would
have terrible spells when my heart,
nerves and stomach would all get
out of order at the same time. I
suffered terrible pain then. I had
begun to fear I'd never be well again.
"At night I could not sleep well
and I was so weak I could hardly be
I up. Really it seemed that my whole
system was out of order in every
way and I got no better, though I
had the best medical attention.
"Some of my relatives persuaded
me to take Tanlac. I have just
finished my first bottle and just a
short time ago I ordered the second.
I am a great deal stronger now in
every way and I've not had one of
those terrible spells since I started
taking Tanlac. My heart, nerves,
stomach, liver and bowels have been
regulated by the Tanlae. I have a
good appetite, too, now.
"The very first dose of Tanlac
made a slight change for the better,
and in my case it seemed almost like
a miracle the way Tanlac worked.
In every way Tanjac has made my
health better and lam so happy, for
I believe I am on the road to re
covery. I sure will continue to take
Tanlac, for it certainly is wonder
