thing I ate disagreed with me and
made me miserable all the time. My
limbs and joints would ache so I
could hardly stand it, and, in fact, for
a& whole day before taking TanJac I
wasn't able to 'put in a full day's
work at all.
"One of my friends had been taking
Tanlac and told me it had done him a
world of good, so I got me a bottle
to try. Well, sir,- it sure surprised
me, for I began to feel better 'right
away after the first dose, and before
the week was out I was back on my
job and have been working right along
ever since like nothing had ever been
the matter with me. I never saw any
thing in my life before that gave such
quick relief as this Tanlac, and I have
n't had a single symptom of my trou
ble since I started on 'it."
