TELL 'EM TO SEE
ME, SAYS TOWNS
-Every Time I Sit Down to a Juicy
Steak Now I Give Thanks to
Tanlac, He Declares.
"Every time I sit down to a jjuicj
steak now I give thanks to Tanlac
for taking me off that milk and mush
diet I had to live on for a year," said
Joseph R. Towns, the well-known and
popular proprietor of the Sanitary
Meat Market, of Marshall, Mich.
"I had stomach trouble of the
worst sort and was going down hill
so fast I thought 1 would have to give
up my business. I was so nervous
and worried I dreaded to see night
come, as it meant little for me and
then in the morning I was so fagged
out I dreaded to go to my market.
"The money I spent for Tanlac was
the best investment I ever made. I
never dreamed a medicine could do
the work It did for me. Three bottles
was all I needed to make me as sound
as a dollar. I never felt better or
more like working in my life than I do
right now. I eat anything I want, my
stomach is in good shape and I am
brimful of energy. I sleep all night
without turning over and get up in
the morning as happy as a boy.
"Not only has Tanlac made me feel
fit and fine, but I have also gained
twenty-live pounds in weight. If any
body wants to know more about what
I think of Tanlac let them come to
toe and I will be glad to tell them.
It certainly hasn't an equal."
Tanlac is sold by leading druggists
