Congress needs to be bluntly told that with fewer "in

CONVINCED OF TANLAC
BY AID GIVEN. WIFE
Husband Says She Added Fifteen
Pounds on Four Bottles
Knew Tanlac Would Help Him Great
ly When He Began It, And
He Tells Details
Cases in which two or more people
in the same family have been so great
ly benefited by Tanlac that they have
offered a double endorsement of this
famous Master Medicine are common.
When you se,) a person relieved cf suf
fering and made strong again, it is
the most natural thing in the world
for you to want the same ben- its.
This is how Charles E. Whitmore, of
103 Bradford St., Albany, N. Y., hap
pened to take Tanlac.
"My wife, who had been all run
down and nervous and getting weaker
right along, began to take Tanlac."
Mr. Whitman explained. "Well, of
course, I wanted the results, and it
was wonderful to see the way it built
her up. On four bottles she gained
fifteen pounds. I had been doubtful
about Tanlac, but that settled me.
When I started Tanlac I could hardly
eat one good meal in a whole week.
From suffering with a bad stomach I
had become nervous and restless at
night and all run down. Instead of di
gesting, my food would just lie like
lead on my stomach and sour and fer
ment and form gas. Because I had
sour stomach-acid stomach-so long,
' 7 mouth had gotten sore. I could
.ot sleep restfully, but would wake up
every hour or two and would roll and
toss. I was tired in the morning, and
by mid-afternoon I was so tired out
it seemIed I couldn't get through the
day. I had lost all ambition, and I did
not care. Seeing what Tanlac had
done for my wife encouraged me to
it began to brace me up right away.
It did as much for me as it did for
her. I slept right through the night,
woke up rested, with a good appe
tite, and was able to enjoy my meals.
My food digested, and the gas, bloat
ing and sour stomach disappeared. I
felt like a new man, and the old
tired, worn-out feeling went with the
rest of my troubles."
When Mr. Whitmore's stomach be
came weak, his system probably be
gan to clog with waste matter. What
tie needed was a good system purifier,
stomach tonic and reconstructive, and
Tanlac did the work for him and he
saw it do for his wife, and as it has
done for countless thousands.
Tanlac, the Master Medicine, is sold
by Dickson's Drug Store, Manning;
H. W. Nettles, Jordan; Shaw & Plow
den, New Zion; Farmers' Supply Co.,

NO SEAtCHING OF
Columbia, Fb. 11.--The story of
the agreement by the free conference
committee of the general assmbly
on the item for "lawv enforcement,"
which really means a sum for the
maintenance by Goevrnor Manning of
a liqIuor constabulary is containedl in
a letter written by the governor to
his chief constable here todlay, calling
a halt in the matter of the promis
cuous searching of grips, which has

There was a dleterminedl fight in the
eneral assembly over the applropria
tion of nmoney for the enforcement of
thi pro~hibition law. Th'le house refused
to give anything wvhatsoever, and the
senate wvantedl to give $51,000. Th'e
great objiection b~y the house to this
fund wvas on the groundl, as contendled
b~y some members of the house free
conf'eence committee, that agents of
the governor have been searching per

suspecting responsible persons to un..
reasonable search. Mr. Seabroo., of
Edisto, a member of the free con

to the governor where the trouble lay,
andl after the governor~ had written
the following letter, the som of $41,

instruct you and the state in enforcing
that they shall not search, or under

heretofore indIcted for selling intoxi

or unless such person has a warrant
describing the person or baggage to

has certain knowledge that there is
