FOR SIXTEEN MONTHS
GREENVILLE MAN SAYS HIS AILMENTS
MADE HIM A COMPLETE
ALL TREATMENT FAILED
W. R, Henson Says Not Until He Took
Tanlac Did He Get Relief?Gained
10 Pounds on 3 Bottles.
"Tanlac is the best medicine I
have ever tried and it 'has improved
my health so much that I can work
now, though my ailments had made
me a complete wreck and had kept
me from working for sixteen (16)
months," declared W. R. Henson a
carpenter, who resides on Grove
Road, near Augusta St., in the Cherokee
Park suburbs of Greenville, S.
The case of Mr. Henson is one of
the most remarkable in Greenville
which h.as yet come to the attention
of the Tanlac representative. Mr.
Henson had kidney and bladder trouble
so badly that his health was undermined
and his strength was lost.
From October, 1914, until a few weeks
' A- lO.
ago, wnen ne Degan 10 ia?.e lauiav;,
Mr. Henson toad been unable to find
anything which would give him satisfactory
results, he said. He gained
ten (10) pounds while taking the
first three bottles of Tanlac.
Just three bottles of "The Master
Medicine" made an almost new man
of him, said Mr. Henson, and he is
strong and sincere in his praise of
this wonderful preparation. He considers
remarkable the relief it gave
him, Mr. Henson's statemnt follows:
"I suffered from a very bad form
of kidney and bladder trouble from
October, 1914. I had keen pains in
my back and left side. After this
trouble hit me, my health gave way
completely and I became too weak to
wort t did nnthins but the lightest
kind of work around the house until
after I began taking 'Tanlac. I .lost
much weight as a result of my ailments,
and I had absolutely no energy.
One of the most distressing
symptoms I had was that I had absolutely
no control over the bladder
"I sought treatment from many
qualified persons and I was told that
I had catarrh of the bladder. I also
tried many medicines but obtained no
satisfactory results in any case until
I began Tanlac.
"My daughter had been for some
time an interested reader of the
testimonials of those who had beej

convinced me that Tanlac was the
medicine I needed, it was exactly the
medicine I needed, as later was proved.
"Tanlac gave me wonderful relief.
I gained ten (10) pounds and have
taken only three bottles. I can do
much work now, and, as an illustration
of the heavy work I can do, I today
lifted a heavy piece of timber and
carried it across the lot That shows
'how much my strength has increased.
I work a great deal more now
than I have for sixteen months?since
this trouble hit me. I feel so much
better in every way. If it had not
been for Tanlac I guess I would be
in bad shape now sure enongt.
"It certainly does make me feel
good to be able to work again. I am
much livelier now, and my kidneys
have been- regulated and strengthened.
That is the very thing which
makes me happy?my greatest trouble
has been relieved by Tanlac.
"Yes, I certainly can recommend
Tanlac. It is the best medicine I
have ever tried. I have taken three
bottles and I know it is doing for me
what it is advertised to do?and
