K. W. McMASTKi:. Treasurer. Lived On Toast For Six Weeks Now Free ol Stomach Trouble, Haiti more Woman Say* Tanlac Is Wonderful Blessing. Tlu- evidence regarding the value of Tanlac in the treatmnt of stomach trouble with its many attendant ills is too conclusive to even admit of doubt. Thousands throughout the continent have testified to the re markable merits of the medicine and the list of testimonials (trows daily as new tests of its powers are made. Among the many Baltimore people who have expressed deep gratitude as a result of having found such a great source of relief is Mrs. J. Soper, re siding at I6.V> West I .am ale street, who says: "Tanlac has been a blessing to me that I can never forget. It has help- 1 ed me out of a case of stomach trim- I ble that was fast w recking m\ health. | ' It made no difference what, or how 1 little, I ate I would suffer for hours | afterwards. Honestly. I scarcely ate j enough to sustain life and had be- 1 come completely run-down. Why, for six weeks before I began taking fan lac m.v stomach got so had that I could eat nothing but a little milk and toast. "I was extremely nervous, slept poorly, and got to where I hardly had strength to do my housework m go to the store. Many a day I felt so worn-out that I simply had to give , up before getting half through with , my work. I was under treatment > for months at a time, but nothing seemed to reach my case and I kept getting worse. "I was almost in despair when I lead about Tanlac and made up mj mind to try it. I believe it was a godsend to me, for I now feel like a different woman entirely. I eat any thing I want and as much as I want and never have the least trouble with my stomach any more. I sleep as peacefully as a child every night and • my housework, which used to be a : j burden, is only a pleasant recreation. I j Words cannot express my gratitude for what Tanlac has done for me." There arc thousands of people in ju.t the same condition as described ! . h\ Mrs. Soper, and in all uch cases Tanlac goes straight to the seat of the trouble, invigorating every organ, and in a brief time resulting in a complete rehabilitation of the nerves 11 and physical condition of the patient. Tanlac is sold by all good druggists. Advertisement.
