May 2Gth. "I suffered from an
aggravated liver trouble trouble
and kidney trouble,and I was on
the verge of a breakdown when I
began taking Tanlac. I frequently
had dizzy spells so severe that I
could hardly walk, and then I was
in considerable pain, toe. My back
was so weak and hurt me so much
I had to have help in leaving my
bed, and I had the most awful at
tacks of sick headache. I could do
no work and I was just able tobe
out of bed.
"But the Tanlac got me in fine
shape and I am strong and hearty
now. My skin has cleared up a lot
and I do not have those dizzy spells
now. I have a fine appetite, too.

By Taking Iron
Says Six Fifty-cent Bottles
Brought Relief After
Ten Long Years of
Tells What Kmd of Iron He Re
"I was troubled with ray stomach
for ten years, and in that time I
bought almost every kind of medi
cine and couldn't begin to say tiow
much I took or paid out for medical
service, yet nothing did me any
good. Then I began using Acid?
Iron Mineral and I don't think I had
taken more than six of the fifty-cebt
bottles when I began feeling better
than I ever did. I only weighed 145
pounds when I began to take Acid
Iron Mineral and now I weighed 180
pounds. It in a pleasure for rae to
recommend it to any one who bas
symptoms of indigestion or stomach
trouble and if they will try it I am
sure they will find it everything I
have said it to be", writes Mr. W.
T. Cash, proprietor of a well known
clothing, shoes, hats, and men's fur
nishing store in Bristol, Virginia.
A statement such as the above
from a merchant of integrity who
knew all the - agony of stomach
trouble for ten years or more must
convince the reader that after all is
said and done, just plain, everyday
natural medicinal iron, concentrated
as it is in Acid Iron Mineral is the
cheapest, best, medicine to bring the
system back to normal and purify
and enrich the blood.
It is unusual, helps the appetite,
and costs but little, a teaspoonful in
a glass of water after meals being a
most invigorating dose. Whole
families that take it Fall and Spring
as a tonic. Absolutely non-injurious,
contains no alcohol, narcotic, or
habit-forming drags. Does not up
set the liver, &tomach, or bowels,
nor injure the teeth.
If your druggist hasn't it send a
dollar to the Ferrodine Cnemical
Corp., Roanoke, Va. for a large
size bottle prepaid.
